A chronicle of the lives, loves, trials and tribulations of the citizens of the fictional city of Salem.
Drake Hogestyn was hired in 1986 to take over the role of "Roman Brady" after Wayne Northrop left the series after a falling out with the show's writers. Several years later Northrop approached the producers of the show about him returning to the series, which created a problem because Hogestyn had quickly became one of the show's most popular actors. In order to keep Hogestyn on the show while allowing Northrop to return to the series as Roman, a storyline was crafted that revealed that Hogestyn's Roman was actually a mercenary named John Black who had been brainwashed into thinking he was Roman Brady as punishment for betraying his employer Stefano Dimera. This allowed Hogestyn to continue on the show while allowing Wayne Northrop to resume his previous role.
