“Days of Our Lives” has been filled with drama and terror as the three prison escapees sought revenge on the residents of Salem. Now that Xander and Clyde have departed, Orpheus is left on his own to complete his plan.
Orpheus’ final stand
Orpheus manages to plant bombs around Salem as well as in the Brady Pub with Hope, Jennifer, John and Marlena there. He then has his goonie strap bombs to Jennifer and tells them he will blow them all up. Eventually Salem’s Police are able to get Orpheus into custody and save the would-be victims from his devious plan. Orpheus, however, isn’t going to return to prison that easily. After three decades of incarceration, he is not willing to go back so he manages to grab a lethal pill from Dr. Marlena Evans’ medical bag. As he pops the pill, he prepares to die.
Long time fans may remember John Black’s father, Yo Ling, did something very similar when he realized he was done. Suicide would be an easy escape for Orpheus but let’s not forget that he was thought to be dead all those years he sat behind bars. Will he be successful at taking his own life or will he live to terrorize another day?
