Was Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) really foolish enough to believe Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson) would give up on him without a fight — and/or a straitjacket? On Monday's episode of Days of Our Lives, the Kiriakis heir's unhinged ex turned up next to him on the couch at his grandfather's mansion. Henderson's behind should be fired for not locking the front door!
Across town, Brady's stepsister, Sami (Alison Sweeney) was meeting with her Aunt Hope (Kristian Alfonso), while chatting on the phone with her honey sugah, EJ (James Scott). Glad to see EJami isn't letting the nasty break-up of their respective siblings' relationship interfere with their renewed love affair. Now if Samantha Jean will just stop worrying about Kate (Lauren Koslow) being pounded by Rafe (Galen Gering).
Cameron (Nathan Owens) put Chad (Casey Deidrick) on notice about his intentions for Abigail (Kate Mansi), while Chad stood there rocking his bitchin' new hairdo. I have to say, I am much more interested in the storyline involving Jennifer Rose's (Melissa Reeves) other tyke. Jack Jr. (Casey Moss) is a bratty hoot. Get him a girlfriend, STAT! Watch the DAYS recap video after the jump.
At the DiMera mansion, Brady (Eric Martsolf) confronted Kristen (Eileen Davidson) with the photo. Kristen tried to cover her tracks by blaming Marlena (Deidra Hall). Kristen accused Marlena of fabricating the image, which Marlena denied.
Brady asked Marlena to leave, and then called Kristen out for all of her manipulations. Kristen admitted she realized that night she was in love with Brady. Brady immediately replied that meant she hadn’t been in love with him before that point. He tried to leave, but she grabbed onto his leg to keep him there with her. Both actors did a fantastic job in the scenes. READ MORE

EXCLUSIVE: DAYS' Eric Martsolf Gets Real About Eileen Davidson, "Bristen" and Brady Black Being an Addict, Not an IdiotBy Jamey Giddens on May 10, 2013
Brady Black's (Eric Martsolf) shocking, sinful dalliance with Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson)—his father's ex-lover, who once tried to kill his stepmother—has brought the House of Black crumbling down on NBC Daytime's Days of Our Lives.
I caught up with Martsolf at the recent Days of Our Lives Charity Event for Autism Speaks in Atlanta.The hunky actor dished what it's been like working with soap legend Davidson. He also shared how glad he is Brady is no longer hopping from relationship to relationship. Martsolf then revealed his belief that Brady turning a blind eye to Kristen's manipulations doesn't mean he's stupid, it just means he's addicted to love.
Daytime Confidential: Brady is in one of the hottest pairings on soaps right now, with Kristen.
Eric Martsolf: I like that.
DC: Are you happy? They've put Brady with so many girls over the course of the last few years and it was kind of just hit or miss. Now you're in a pairing that is red-hot!
EM: Thank you for the comment. I'm ecstatic and I was ecstatic when I found out I was going to be working with Eileen. I hadn't met Eileen, but like almost everybody in this room I've spoke to, they all remember her as Ashley on The Young and the Restless. I myself remember her as Ashley and being impressed with her. I think the opportunity to work with her has been terrific. Thank God they actually took some time to invest in a relationship with Brady, because you're right. It's been very...just jumping from lilypad to lilypad. It's like, when is this frog gonna find a home? They have invested in it. It's under interesting circumstances, but that's what makes good soap.
DC: It's Oedipal, Greek tragedy. I remember when Kristen was almost a step-parent to little boy Brady. Now she's calling him Daddy!
EM: Yeah, now it's "Who's Your Daddy?" [Laughs]
(Eric gets pulled away temporarily.)
Victor (John Aniston) thought his grandson had finally come to his senses, when Brady (Eric Martsolf) dropped by the Kiriakis mansion. He was wrong.
Victor said Kristen (Eileen Davidson) was the worst addiction Brady had ever face. He warned his late daughter's son, saying Kristen was going to suck his soul dry.
Brady, being one of the dumbest characters in soaps, didn't listen to a word his grandfather said.
Suddenly, Victor changed his tune and apologized. He made up with Brady, saying he'd support him.
After Brady left, Henderson said he was happy to hear Victor was supporting Brady. Victor revealed he had no intention of supporting Brady; he was just biding his time. READ MORE
