BRADY SETS HIS SIGHTS ON EVE
Targeting Eve to be the next Mrs. Brady Black, Brady lures her in, while Eve is unaware her life may be in danger whether she marries him or not.
Eve nds an unexpected ally, on Days of Our Lives.
Since Nicole’s departure, Brady’s faith and trust in women has been irreparably shattered, not only pushing him over the edge into an alcoholism relapse but increasingly twisting his mind with more sinister thoughts of how to deal with them. His latest target is Eve Donovan, his great uncle Deimos’ widow, and he’s declared he’ll go to any lengths to destroy her and her claim on the Kiriakis fortune.
Possibly against his better judgement, Victor (John Aniston) has consented to allow Brady (Eric Martsolf) to take charge of the plot to rid Eve (Kassie DePaiva) from their orbit, but that doesn’t mean Victor’s prepared to wait forever for results.
Recently, Brady’s slow seduction of Eve has gotten under Victor’s skin and, although he cautiously approved of his grandson’s tactics, he nally confronted Brady about the time it’s taking. Frustrated that Brady is preying on Eve’s desperate need for attention, Victor warned him he’s playing a dangerous game in which the players themselves often get played. He was further shocked by Brady’s explanation that he eventually plans to marry Eve before stripping her of everything she owns.
Giving Brady one last chance to succeed, Victor bluntly suggested that if the plot failed, they’d have no choice but to kill Eve! However, Brady was con dent he’d be successful and it appeared he was heading in the right direction. Eve con ded in Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin), who had earlier caught Eve and Brady having sex, that despite her suspicion Brady was using her, she nds him a sexy and strong man who can assuage her feelings of loneliness. Soon after, Eve seemingly fell deeper under Brady’s spell when he allowed her to overhear his fabricated confrontation with Victor before he passionately kissed her.
Is Eve falling under Brady’s irresistible spell and will his twisted mind trigger his murderous instincts?
Meanwhile, Victor knew he was appealing to Brady’s past murderous instincts by pitching the idea of permanently erasing Eve from their lives. That thought bared fruit quicker than Victor imagined, when Vivian (Louise Sorel) paid Brady and Eve a visit to gloat about stealing Gabi’s (Camila Banus) company, Gabi Chic, from Kiriakis’s control to be owned under the DiMera Enterprises banner.
Upon hearing Vivian threatening to destroy the Kiriakis family, while also damning Eve for being a former prostitute, Brady snapped and squeezed his hand around Vivian’s throat, spitting that he wouldn’t hesitate to put her back into the sarcophagus, where he had imprisoned her years earlier, if she didn’t vanish.
The mere mention of Vivian’s entrapment in the lavish coffin is the strongest hint yet that Brady’s vampire-like tendencies may eventually engulf Eve. The rich widow thinks she’s got Brady’s number and can outsmart him, but if a wedding between them does eventuate then she’ll be at his complete mercy. Should she strike back at that point, it could be the death of her.
Then again, Eve may have an unexpected ally in her corner. With her sister Theresa (Jen Lilley) heading back to Salem in a few months, perhaps Theresa will crash Brady and Eve’s wedding and expose Brady’s machinations to protect her sibling from an uncertain fate. Or perhaps Theresa’s loyalty to ex-lover Brady, the father of her son Tate, will prove too overwhelming, forcing Theresa to plot with Brady against Eve, which would potentially leave Eve staring at life in a coffin!
