Gwen on DAYS OF OUR LIVES might look familiar to viewers of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as the new character is being played by Emily O’Brien, who played Eden on the CBS sudser from 2006-2001. The actress made her DAYS debut on June 5, 2020, and has already made quite a splash! Here’s what we know so far…
Gwen first appeared in Bayview suggesting Claire Brady sing for the patients. She then noticed the “save the date” card Claire had and questioned her about the upcoming wedding. When Claire insisted she wasn’t planning on crashing the ceremony but wanted to be released in time to be a bridesmaid, Gwen wondered if she had something in mind to make sure that happened.
Jake Lambert has been looking for his ex-girlfriend who took something valuable off him because some goons want the item back. He ended up in Salem because of her, and when he showed a photo of Gwen to Ben and Ciara, it was the British woman talking with Claire at Bayview! It turns out that Gwen has possession of a book that Jake took from the mob containing important names and numbers, and they want it back!
When Gwen showed up at Claire’s she revealed the copy of Crime and Punishment the mob wants so desperately, and while Claire wanted to turn it in, Gwen wanted to sell it to the highest bidder! Eventually, Jake convinced Gwen the mob would rather kill her than pay her for it and she handed it over. She also flirted with Jake and reminded him of how hot they were together, which served to drive Gabi Hernandez crazy, as she remained convinced that Jake was really her husband, Stefan DiMera!
Although DNA tests proved Jake was actually Stefan’s twin, Gwen was excited because it meant he was part of the wealthy DiMera family! Chad DiMera encountered Gwen at the bar and they struck up a friendship over drinks. So when Gwen and Jake moved into the DiMera mansion, Chad asked her to help spy on Gabi for him! She agreed, and Chad also flirted with her to help make Jake jealous. Unfortunately, Jake ended up sleeping with Gabi and dumped Gwen, who turned to Chad for comfort. But then his wife, Abigail Deveraux, came home to throw a monkey wrench into that plan!
Although everyone believed Gabi had been the one who had drugged Abigail into suffering terrifying hallucinations, it turned out that it was really Gwen who had slipped the drug into Abigail’s champagne months ago! And she has been in cahoots with Dr. Rolf, who gave her the dangerous drug in the first place! When he asked why she had it in for Abigail, Gwen kept it to herself, so stay tuned to see what happens next!
