For over fifty years now, Days of Our Lives (DOOL) has been delighting its fans with intrigue, adventure, mystery, and a ton of romance! Audiences have fallen in love with the Hortons, wished they were part of the Bradys and despised the DiMeras (for the most part). As DOOL celebrates yet another birthday within the land of daytime drama this November, here are some iconic moments from the incredibly popular soap opera.
12. Jack’s Elevator Accident
He’s alive and well now, but when Jack “passed away” in 2012, he did so with a boom, saving the life of daughter Abigail. Picture it, an autism fundraiser was held in honor of Lexie Carver, and after a great explosion, the banquet hall where the event had been taking place was rocked. Abigail was locked in an elevator, and as Jack pushed his way into it to save her, the cables began to crack. He ended up pushing her out of the elevator just before the doors closed and the entire thing came to a crash. Jack went out a hero, but the silver lining was after some years, he turned out to be okay.
