Southern California and the Pacific Ocean are the backdrops which bring on to Days of our Lives both Marie Wilson as Summer. and Jordi Vilasuso as Dario Hernandez.
In the case of the latter, on Friday’s episode of the NBC daytime drama it is Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) storyline that acts as the centerpiece for bringing Dario back on the canvas, and in the form of daytime favorite, Jordi Vilasuso.
While Brady is obsessing over the woman he keeps dreaming about, and how it is tied to Daniel and his new heart, he walks in to a beachfront bar chatting it up with a bartender about this mystery woman, Summer. The bartender says he hasn’t seen her, but maybe the main bartender has … enter Dario! Brady is stunned and asks Dario, “What in the hell are you doing here?” Dario explains that working at Titan Argentina and the corporate world wasn’t a good fit for him, and neither was living in Salem. Brady even questions Dario if his siblings, Rafe (Galen Gering) and Gabi (Camila Banus) even knows where he is at? Next, Brady asks if Dario knows this mystery woman, Summer.
It turns out, Dario does know her, and he says she’ll be walking through the door of the bar at any minute. Dario asks if this is a new romance, but Brady informs Dario he has his gal, Theresa (Jen Lilley) and their son, Tate back in Salem. Dario warns Brady that Summer can be unpredictable and has spent some time in a psychiatric ward. If he sees her, Brady’s asks Dario to give Summer a message that he’s looking for her. Later, Brady returns to the beach and finally lays eyes on his mystery woman as she starts to walk fully clothed into the ocean … in what looks to be an apparent suicide somehow involved with Summer?
