Megan on DAYS OF OUR LIVES — Everything You Need To Know
Megan Hathaway DiMera was on DAYS OF OUR LIVES back in the ‘80s so it’s totally understandable if newer viewers might need a little bit of a refresher on her history in Salem. The character first appeared back in 1984 and was played by actress Miranda Wilson until her exit a year later. However, like many in Salem, Megan returned from the dead in 2022 when Wilson reprised the role in the second season of BEYOND SALEM. And now she’s returning to DAYS proper!
Megan Hathaway arrived in Salem in 1984 with her adopted father, Maxwell Hathaway, though she was actually the daughter of notorious supervillain Stefano DiMera. She was Bo Brady’s high school sweetheart and was furious to discover that their romance had soured because her mother had interfered and kept them apart. Megan became determined to win him back and informed Bo that she had been pregnant when he left town and had given the child up for adoption. She also became involved in Stefano’s search for the three prisms, the only way to cure his inoperable brain tumor.
The search for their child led Bo and Megan to New Orleans, where she had arranged to kill a woman to steal her child and set up fake adoptive parents they could take the boy from. Bo managed to save Megan’s prospective murder victim but went along with the sham regarding “their son” in order to stick close to the DiMeras. Bitterly jealous of Bo’s continued love for Hope Williams, Megan plotted to kill her rival by electrocuting her in a hot tub. However, while arranging to rewire the hot tub, Megan overheard Larry Welch talking about the three prisms and confronted him. During the struggle, Larry killed Megan and covered it up by dumping her body in the hot tub and electrocuting it, making Hope the prime suspect in her murder!
In July 2022, it was revealed that Stefano had cryogenically frozen Megan to keep her on ice until she could be brought back to life. When she was finally revived, Megan hired Harris Michaels to kidnap Steve Johnson and John Black. She was still after the prisms, believed to be able to cure all kinds of diseases, hoping to use them to bring Stefano back to life. She brainwashed Steve and John into helping get the prisms for her and once she had all three, Megan got her wish. But it wasn’t Stefano in the cryogenic tube but Bo!
Then, when Marlena Evans, Kate Roberts, and Kayla Brady were all killed, Salem mourned but in February 2023 it was revealed that the women were all very much alive being kept in cryogenic suspension by Megan!
Stay tuned to DAYS to see what Megan gets up to next!
