Isn’t it nice when a veteran Daytime Emmy-winning actress gets the chance to remind us all why she has been a beloved and a vital cast member of Days of our Lives for decades? That was the case again on Tuesday’s episode of the NBC sudser with Suzanne Rogers (Maggie).
The decision of who will get Daniel’s (Shawn Christian) heart all falls on to his mother Maggie. She is the next of kin, and she is out of a time to make her decision. Will she authorize Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) to give Daniel’s heart to Victor’s (John Aniston) grandson, Brady (Eric Martsolf) or to Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Roman’s (Josh Taylor) son, Eric (Greg Vaughan)?
Throughout the episode, Maggie anguishes over this no-win heartbreaking situation. In a scene where Rogers really shined, Maggie sits by her son’s bedside to try to get a sign or some courage from him, but most of all to tell him how much she loved him for the little time they had together. Rogers played a mother’s grief and heartbreak to perfection.
Later in the hospital chapel, Maggie tries to go through the options in her mind sitting beside her husband. However, painfully she realizes there is no choice that she will ever be able to live with. And as time is ticking down, Kayla tells Maggie she needs to let her know who gets Daniel’s heart asap. John (Drake Hogestyn) walks into the conversation and says he will give his heart to Brady, as if to simplify things, leaving Victor, Maggie, and Kayla in complete shock.
What will Maggie do? The smart bet lies that she would choose Brady, but tomorrow DAYS fans will find out how it all plays itself out.
