About this FAQ
I have gotten many letters and read many internet posts asking
about the history of the DiMera family. I have put together this FAQ to answer
The Killing Pool
Kristen became desperate to find little Elvis and broke into Marlena's
penthouse. Susan happened to fax a picture of herself to that was in a local
newspaper to Marlena and Kristen learned where Susan was hiding. Kristen made it
look like she was leaving town, but she really went up to the house Peter had
built for Jen. Kristen called Susan in England and told her to bring the baby to
Salem with her and to wear a certain outfit. Kristen had kidnapped Sister Mary
Moira and was threatening to kill her if Susan didn't bring her the baby. In
England, Susan had met a fourth sister she never knew about, whose name was
Penelope Kent. Penelope told Susan that their mother couldn't care for four
babies, so she was given up. Susan was happy to see her sister, but Penelope
told Susan that she had a rare disease and was dying. Susan told Penelope about
her troubles with Kristen and Penelope agreed to go with Susan to Salem and deal
with Kristen. Penelope and Susan went to Salem, both wearing the same white
dress, and decided to confront Kristen. Penelope, who had a fear of flying, was
downed a lot of alcohol and an prescription drug called Placiden. Meanwhile,
Kristen had drugged up some Dr. Pepper soda cans and planned to sell Susan into
white slavery and take off with little Elvis. Susan and Penelope arrived at the
Blake house, as did Edmund. Susan drank one of the drugged drinks and was
carried off by the man Kristen sold her to. Kristen was furious to learn that
Susan had not brought little Elvis to Salem with her. Kristen disguised herself
as Susan and headed for the airport. Meanwhile, Edmund arrived at the Blake
House and mistook Penelope for Kristen. Edmund demanded to know what she had
done with Susan. Penelope, who was drunk and drugged, tried to tell Edmund she
wasn't Kristen. Edmund pushed her into the pool and she drowned within seconds.
Edmund fled the scene. Later, Marlena and John found Penelope dead in the pool,
but they mistook her for Kristen. Everyone thought Kristen had killed herself,
but Roman was convinced it was murder. Abe and John had found Kristen at the
airport, but mistook her for Susan. They told her that she couldn't leave town
because they needed to question her about Kristen's murder. Kristen was shocked
and believed that Susan was the woman that they found in the pool. Edmund
returned to Salem to be with Susan, once he heard that she had been taken into
the police station for questioning. Eventually, the police believed that Laura
Horton had killed Kristen. Laura admitted going to the Blake house during
Jennifer Horton's funeral (which was staged) and she attempted to shoot at the
woman she though was Kristen. Laura missed, and thought that proved she did not
kill Kristen. When the autopsy came back it showed a high level of Placiden in
her blood. Laura had been prescribed the same drug by Marlena and the police
thought that Laura had drugged Kristen. Kristen thought she was off the hook and
was delighted to see Laura get what she deserved, in her opinion. Unfortunately,
Kristen was not off the hook. Edmund proposed to her and Kristen had to accept,
otherwise people would grow suspicious. She also realized that she needed Edmund
to take her to Elvis, who was staying with Edmund's mother, Violet. With
Caroline Brady and Maggie Horton's help, Edmund planned a surprise wedding for
"Susan." Kristen revealed herself to Stefano, who was delighted to see
she was still alive. However, Stefano told Kristen that she had to marry Edmund,
otherwise it would look suspicious. Violet arrived in town for the wedding and
she brought little Elvis with her. Kristen tried to escape with Little Elvis
once by drugging Violet, but failed. Kristen planned to ditch Edmund after the
wedding and hide with little Elvis, Stefano had given her his permission to
raise the boy. John had given "Susan" the use of his jet, so right
after the wedding, Kristen went to work. Kristen left a piece of chocolate with
a thank you note at Marlena's penthouse. The chocolate was filled with
penicillin, which Marlena was highly allergic to. Then she fled to the airport,
where she said goodbye to Stefano. Unfortunately, Edmund found her there and
warned Stefano to stay away from them. Stefano left and the plane took off. Up
in the air, Edmund told "Susan" that he was the one who killed the
woman in the pool, but it was an accident. Kristen told Edmund that she no
longer felt safe with him and once the plane landed in Bermuda, she was leaving
him. Meanwhile, Stefano went to the Blake house to try and cover any clues up
that would make the people of Salem realize Kristen wasn't dead, Stefano too
believed Susan was the one buried in Kristen's grave. However, Stefano found a
picture that Susan had given to Edmund, it had her handwriting on the back with
a little note, and Stefano realized that Edmund had killed the woman in the
pool. Stefano feared for Kristen's safety. Meanwhile, Susan, had escaped from
the palace and made her way to Bermuda, because she had called Violet and asked
Susan if she and Edmund had arrived yet. Susan realized that Kristen married
Edmund and was impersonating her. Susan surprised both Edmund and Kristen in
Bermuda and she had a plan. Susan arranged for Kristen to be sent back to the
palace with one of the guards, who had been following Susan. Kristen tried to
bribe the man, but he wouldn't accept the bribes. Susan and Edmund married for
real and Susan forgave Edmund for accidentally killing her sister. Susan and
Edmund returned to England and Susan pretends to be Kristen every once in awhile
and keep in touch with Stefano, so he doesn't get suspicious.
John and Marlena Reunite, Kristen's Revenge is foiled
Kristen's hope that Marlena would eat the poisoned chocolate and die was ruined
when Belle Black ate it instead. Roman found Belle past out on the floor of the
penthouse and gave her a shot to counteract the penicillin, for Belle was just
as allergic as her mother. Near Belle was an open bottle of Brady's pills and he
thought that Belle had eaten them, mistaking them for candy. Roman rushed Belle
to the hospital. It was when he saw Marlena and John by their daughter's side
that he realized Marlena and John were meant to be together. Roman told Marlena
that he wouldn't stand in her way and he wished her and John all the happiness
in the world. Meanwhile, Susan felt something was wrong and she called Salem.
Susan learned what had happened and realized Kristen had tried to kill Marlena.
Susan sent Kristen one final note, which said her planned failed and that John
and Marlena were once again engaged.
Stefano, Vivian, Jonsey, and the Townhouse
Stefano had a secret townhouse, which he trusted to a man named
Jonsey. Stefano told Jonsey it was very important that no one knew that this
house and everything in it belonged to him. Jonsey eventually married Vivian and
turned over the townhouse and all its contents to Vivian in his will. Vivian was
using Jonsey for the money at first, but she did fall in love with him
eventually. Unfortunately, Jonsey died suddenly during their lovemaking one
night. Vivian was distraught, but she had the townhouse and all it's
possessions. Vivian began selling off some of Jonsey's artworks to finance a new
business she was starting, a business to rival Titan, which she wanted to take
over. Eventually, Stefano found out that Vivian married Jonsey and inherited all
the belonging in the townhouse and was selling them. Stefano became furious and
decided to stop Vivian. Vivian had become curious about what was locked in the
basement of the townhouse and attempted to break in. An alarm went off, which
signaled Stefano. Stefano had his henchman, Bart, go to the townhouse and tell
Vivian that a chemical spill had occurred and fumes were leaking into the house,
so she had to leave. Stefano and Bart managed to clean out the mysterious
contents. Still, Stefano had worked years to get those art treasures and he
wasn't about to let Vivian sell them all. Stefano came up with a new plan.
Stefano controls Vivian
Upon Kristen's "death", Stefano inherited her shares
in Titan. Kate attempted to buy them from Stefano, but he decided that he wanted
to keep them and work at Titan with Kate. Later, Kate learned that Stefano owned
the townhouse Vivian was living in and he made her swear not to tell anyone.
Kate started to become worried about Vivian's new business because she was
stealing clients from Titan. Stefano came up with a plan to take care of Vivian.
Stefano had Dr. Rolfe implant a mood controlling chip in Vivian's tooth. With a
device, Stefano could put Vivian into an up mode, a down mode, and a normalized
mode. Stefano hoped to have Vivian declared legally incompetent, and then he
would swoop in and regain his art treasures. This would also solve Kate's
dilemma by destroying Vivian's company. Stefano used the remote for weeks on
end, and eventually Vivian's health began to deteriorate. Despite Dr. Rolfe
warning Stefano not to use the remote, he continued to do so, pushing Vivian to
the brink of death. Vivian eventually gave into Stefano's wish for her to sign
over power of attorney to him so he could take care of her. However, Celeste
changed Vivian's mind and at the last minute she signed everything over to her
nephew John. When he realized that Vivian signed power of attorney over to John,
Stefano convinced Vivian to marry him. However, she did it in order to get his
shares of Titan stock. The two were married in a hot air balloon, which Vivian
fell from while throwing rice , and she landed in a lake.
Hope decided that she wanted to find out what happened to her during the four
missing years of her life. Upon confronting Stefano, Stefano told her that he
found Hope in New Orleans and nursed her back to health. Stefano told Hope that
she went through 4 long and painful years of surgery. Hope went to see Celeste,
who told Hope she did not know about her past. Later, Celeste told Hope that she
was with her for those four years and lied to her because she didn't want Hope
to remember the pain she went through. Celeste sent Hope a box of Gina's
belongings, but later tried to get it back because she feared it would anger
Stefano. However she was too late, hope found it and opened it while Celeste
watched. Inside were a silver comb, lipstick container, and a compact with a G
on it. Hope asked why Stefano would give these to someone whose face was scared,
but Celeste didn't know. Celeste said she wasn't with Hope, she only lied
because Stefano had threatened her. Celeste told Hope that the truth was she was
only with her the last 6 months she was at Maison Blanche. Hope decided to go
back down to New Orleans to investigate. Down in New Orleans, Hope found the
doctor who performed some of her surgeries. He told Hope that he performed some
of them, but she was taken away by the man financing her surgeries and someone
else finished them. He also showed Hope a picture of what she looked like while
she was there. The picture was of a horribly scared woman. Hope soon found the
woman she roomed with and the woman told her that she would have terrible
nightmares and kept saying she had to go back to the Bayou Dugar. Hope ventured
out to the Bayou and was met by to local's Wayne and Earl, who tried to force
Hope to go back home. Hope still ventured out to the Bayou Dugar and was hit on
the head by someone in the bushes. Hope returned to her hotel, only to find Bo
there. Bo and Hope returned to the bayou and heard stories about another scarred
woman in the bayou named Swamp Girl. Swamp Girl spied on Bo and Hope and even
stole Hope's compact. Eventually, Bo and Hope were forced out of the bayou when
Wayne and Earl held a shotgun on them. Bo and Hope returned to Salem, but Hope
vowed to return for her compact one day.
Princess Gina - John and Hope's search for their pasts
John and Marlena vacationed in New Orleans to celebrate their
re-engagement. While there, John went back to what was left of Maison Blanche.
There he found an old burnt picture of Hope. Upon returning to Salem, John
showed the picture to Hope. Hope was dressed in some fashions from the early 50s
and was standing in front of a magnificent building. Vivian Alamain identified
the cloths Hope was wearing and John called a professor friend to learn about
the building. One possible location was Lugano, Switzerland. Hope had already
sketched a replica of the painting 'Garden at Twilight by Paul Renee, who was
from Lugano. Another clue was a silver comb, which had "Made in Lugano"
engraved on it. Hope decided to go to Lugano and John went along because he
feared she would get into trouble on her own. Upon arriving in Lugano, Hope and
John questioned an antique store owner about the comb. The owner told them that
the comb was part of a private collection that was stolen years ago. The shop
keeper kept the comb and told them if they left he wouldn't have to call the
police. John and Hope witnessed the shop owner give the comb to a woman and they
followed her to an elegant house, which John recognized as the building Hope was
standing in front of in the picture he found of her. Hope and John went in and
met the house's owner, Ms. Faversham. Ms. Faversham looked carefully at Hope and
called her "Princess Gina!" Ms. Faversham explained to Hope that she
was Princess Gina, a member of a royal family who was very close friends with
her, but she suddenly vanished from a ball one night about five years ago. John
and Hope stayed in Lugano and investigated her past. They learned that Princess
Gina and Ms. Faversham often went to art festivals and learned that Princess
Gina loved Ms. Faversham's collection of Renet paintings. John and Hope learned
about the grandson of Renet and went to question him about the auctioning off of
the last Renet painting. The man had pictures, which Hope was in, but John was
shocked to see himself in the pictures as well, sporting a beard and a priests
outfit. Later, John would be recognized as Father Black by two Swiss nuns.
Marlena would come to Lugano to surprise John, but the two would return to Salem
when they learned Sami had been shot during an assassination attempt on her
fiancee Franco Kelly's life. Hope remained in Lugano and went aboard the Empress
Express with Ms. Faversham to go to Count Olenska's art festival. Back in Salem,
John learned that Stefano was also on his way there and he tried to warn Hope,
but by time he contacted her, Stefano had already found her. Stefano and Hope
returned to Salem, but neither Hope nor John would give up the search for their
pasts, despite Stefano's warning that it would bring them nothing but
Bo, the Swamp Girl, and Princess Gina
Bo returned to the bayou after his and Billie's unborn child was lost. Bo was
grieving and needed to do something to keep his mind off the loss. Bo felt he
failed Billie, but he vowed not to fail Hope and decided to return to the bayou
to find Swamp Girl. Bo was convinced that she knew something about Hope and he
tried to befriend her. Bo cut up his cloths and smeared mud on his face in an
attempt to gain Swamp Girl's trust, and it slowly started to work. Bo and the
Swamp Girl were forced to seek shelter in the ruins of Maison Blanche, and a run
in with some bats blinded Bo. Swamp Girl tended to Bo's eyes,, but he remained
blind for many days. Swamp Girl decided to set up a romantic evening for herslef
and Bo. She cut her hair, washed the mud off her face, and both she and Bo
dressed up in formal uniforms that Swamp Girl found in a closet. As the two of
them danced, Bo's eyesite came back and he caught a glimpse of Swamp Girl's
scarred face. Swamp Girl eventually told Bo her name, it was Greta. She
explained to him how Ernesto Toscano hired her to portray Hope in the cage seen,
which Bo believed had been the death of Hope. However, something went wrong and
Greta fell into the acid, burning her face. Greta told Bo that Hope was never
hurt, but they were both taken to Maison Blanche by Stefano. Stefano attempted
to reconstruct Greta's face. The pain was too much for Greta, so she ran away
into the swamps. Bo asked Greta to return with him to Salem to tell this to
Hope, but she refused. Later, Wayne and Earl captured Greta and caged her. Bo
rescued her, with Billie Reed Brady's help, and all three of them fled the Bayou
for Salem. Once in Salem, it took a lot of convincing on Bo's part to keep Greta
from leaving, but it was ultimately John Black who caused her to stay. Greta saw
John inside the Brady Pub, and rushed into his arms calling him Father John!
Greta explained to John that she knew him when she was little, he was a friend
to her mother, Princess Gina Von Amburg, who looked exactly like Hope! John
explained to Greta that he has no memory of his past, so Greta decided to stay
in Salem and help both him and Hope search for their missing years, much to
Stefano's dismay. Stefano had been told that Greta was dead, and he believed his
secrets had died with her.
Vivian Gets Revenge on Stefano
After falling from the balloon, the receiver in Vivian's tooth
was lodged loose and began to hurt. Vivian went to her old friend Doctor Wu, who
pulled the microchip out of her tooth. After analyzing it he told Vivian that it
was a mood control device. All the unexplainable mood swings Vivian had been
experiencing over the last several months began to make sense, and she soon
discovered Stefano's remote, and was forced to act her way through fake mood
swings to keep Stefano from learning she had removed the receiver. Vivian,
Celeste, and Ivan wondered why Stefano married her and went to such extreme
lengths to control her, until they found an old will of Jonsey's which indicated
that all of Jonsey's art treasures actually belonged to Stefano! Vivian deduced
that the treasures were stolen, and decided to use the situation to her
advantage to her advantage. First she changed her will, leaving everything to
John, Celeste, and Ivan, and then convinced Lexie to tell Stefano that Vivian
was dying and could go at any moment. Then after badgering Stefano for hours on
end, Stefano gave in and signed his stocks in Titan over to her. However, he
made her sign a contract which bequeath them back to him upon her death,
figuring she would go at any moment. Vivian continued to play the dying wife,
but Stefano soon became suspicious of her. Vivian and Bo teamed up to bring
Stefano down. She would help him if he helped her. Vivian planned a going away
party at which she would give away all her art treasures, and Bo made sure that
Victor would attend the party. Vivian still wanted Victor's forgiveness, and
love, and vowed to make him see what Kate was doing to Titan. During the
planning phase of her party, Vivian's nephew Nicholas Alamain, now all grown up,
returned to Salem to see his dying Aunt. Vivian eventually told Nikki that she
wasn't dying and explained the situation to him.
Stefano Makes Hope Gina Once Again
When Vivian changed her will and left her treasures to John,
Ivan, and Celeste, Stefano realized he had to act quickly to save them. Because
Gina had created the original forgeries, the stolen Rennets were underneath
them, Stefano decided to bring Gina back to create duplicates which Stefano
could substitute in place of the ones in the townhouse. However, bringing Gina
back was tricky. Dr. Rolfe uploaded all of Gina's memories into a satellite,
which would then beam them down to a chip in Hope's brain, turning her into
Gina. However, the complete process could only occur during a total lunar
eclipse, which happened every four years and was approaching. As Rolfe uploaded
the memories up to the satellite, Hope began to have memory flashes of Gina's
life. Bo became a problem for Stefano because he wanted to take Hope far away
from Salem. He feared that if Bo and Hope married and left town before he could
turn Hope back into Gina, all his plans would be ruin. To slow their future
plans down, Stefano had Shawn Douglas kidnapped. Bo and Hope both knew that
Stefano was behind it. Stefano had arranged to save Shawn Douglas to ingratiate
himself to Hope, but it blew up when Shawn D. tried to escape and plunged into
the icy Salem River. Shawn D. was saved. The ordeal did buy Stefano time, but
when the satellite was in position and everything was ready, a violent snowstorm
hit Salem and Dr. Rolfe feared that it would block the satellite's transmission.
Hope was driving at the time, trying to get home to Bo, when her car went off
the road. She was rushed to the hospital, but seemed to be okay. Later, however,
Hope went to see Stefano and fooled her creator into thinking that she was Hope!
She told him that Gina was back and ready to pick up the pieces of her life. She
wanted to return to Europe, but Stefano told her they couldn't leave until she
completed forgeries of all the paintings in the townhouse. He also warned her to
stay away from John and Greta, but Gina had no plans on doing that.
Stefano Reveals the Truth about John Black
Stefano told Dr. Rolfe the truth about JOhn, he was never a
priest! Stefano got to a very young Forrest Alamain early on and turned him into
his pawn. John, like Hope, was implanted with a microchip that allowed Stefano
to implant and erase his memory, but John's chip was much cruder than Hope's.
John entered the seminary, but never took his vows. He posed as a priest and
worked with Princess Gina, who was also under his control. Together they stole
many priceless works of art from all over Europe. John used his reputation as a
priest as a cover and Gina used her status as a Princess as her cover.
Gina Betrays Stefano
Gina was determined to reunite with John and Greta, despite
Stefano's wishes. Unfortunately, GIna found out that John had no memory of her,
so she decided to jog it. She learned from Greta that Marlena was helping John
remember his past, which included Gina. She learned that John had recalled
Princess Gina teaching him how to dance, so she accepted a dinner invitation
from John and Marlena and wore a similar dress to Tuscany, which triggered
John's memory, but aroused Greta's suspicious. Greta began to believe that her
mother was alive inside of Hope. When Stefano found Gina with JOhn and Greta he
flipped and scolded her, but she told him that she had no choice but to go out
to dinner with them because they were becoming suspicious of "Hope."
Gina continued to manipulate herself into John's life, constantly urging him to
search for his past. She even planted doubts in his head that he was ever a
priest. Unfortunately for Gina, her constant ignoring of Bo led him and Greta to
go to the Hotel Capri and do some background searching on her. Gina quickly
followed them and changed the hotel records so that the dates she stayed there
did not coincide with any of the art thefts, and she also erased John's name
from the computer so they couldn't connect the two. Later, Gina revealed herself
to Lilly Faversham and moved out of the Horton house and in with Lilly to get
away from Bo. She then stepped up her plans to win John back. She learned that
Billie Reed had her compact, which was a gift from John and an item that she
thought would trigger his memory. Unfortunately, John began to have terrible
migraines and Stefano warned Gina that if John continued to research his past it
could kill him. When she finally retrieved the compact from Billie, she was
afraid to show it to John. John, however, saw the compact eventually, and it
triggered all sorts of passionate memories for him about Gina. The two ended up
kissing, but John vowed to forget about his past and concentrate on the woman he
loved in the present, Marlena. When Gina learned of John's immediate plans to
marry Marlena, she blackmailed Dr. Rolfe into deactivating the chip in John's
brain in order to stop the wedding and get the old John back.
