Last week Jennifer’s mom Dr. Laura Horton (Jamie Lyn Bauer) died after a face off with a very angry Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien).
Laura’s funeral was held this week and after the service Jennifer left Salem to go to Boston where she and her brother had the task of settle their mother’s estate while going through her belongings and tying up any loose ends that need to be taken care of.
Cady came to DOOL after Melissa Reeves chose to stay home in Nashville, Tennessee during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Will McClain be back? That remains to be seen but the show took her departure as an opportunity to pay homage to her character Dixie Cooney Martin on the ABC soap All My Children.
Head writer Ron Carlivati made reference to Dixie being killed-off after eating poisoned pancakes. The death was controversial as Dixie was a beloved character.
On DOOL fans saw thoughtful Julie Horton (Susan Seaforth Hayes) make pancakes for Jennifer who declined them.

Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – Jennifer Horton Does Not Like Pancakes
Julie thought she liked them, but Jennifer said, “I used to. But I had a bad experience with them once. Now I can’t even look at them.” When Julie asks, “Bad experience?” Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”
Cady had brought up the pancake death in a 2020 interview with EW.com saying, “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”
So, what happens next to Jennifer’s Salem family? Her daughter Abigail Devereaux (Marci Miller) is hellbent on making Gwen pay for Laura’s death. However, Gwen swears Laura fell and hit her head, whereas Abi thinks Gwen is a murderer.
