So, I just want to thank my team and everybody that puts the show together on the air.”

Days of Our Lives submitted three action packed and drama filled episodes from January 2020 that featured Mother’s Day flashbacks.

In the episodes Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans) died in a car accident as she was taking Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) to the hospital. Sarah was in labor when the was run off the road by Orpheus (George DelHoyo).
As a result Sarah’s daughter, Mackenzie Horton, was born on the side of the road near the accident and sadly later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The death became the center of a baby switch storyline that riveted fans and confounded the Salem characters.

“DOOL” beat out the writing team of ABC’s “General Hospital” for the award as CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” did not submit episodes for review this year. The award went to “Y&R” last year.

Paul Telfer (Xander Kiriakis) tweeted, “Congratulations to Ron Carlivati and the ‘DAYS’ writing staff on their WGA Award!!!”

This is terrific news for the daytime drama and its writing staff. Ironically, Days of Our Lives comings and goings show Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) will be leaving the show soon, and fans are wondering what will become of Xander with his lady love gone from Salem. But the show goes on as they say, and like sands through the hourglass, so will DOOL.
