10. DOOL’s Summer Is Maggie’s Daughter
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) Maggie Kiriakis seemed to have family popping out from all over the place. First, she ended up being Dr. Daniel Jonas’ mom, and then in the summer of 2016, a daughter strolled into Salem — which provided the show with an incredible plot twist. Sadly, Daniel passed away in early 2016 and his heart ended up saving Brady Black’s life. But then, Brady began having dreams about a mysterious woman which led him on a wild goose chase to find Summer. Most Days fans naturally assumed that Summer was a former love interest of Jonas’ or would become a new love interest for Brady… but neither really occurred. A bond was formed between mother and daughter when it was realized that Summer was both Daniel’s sister and Maggie’s long-lost child.
