* Was originally named Eve Baron.
Eve arrived in Salem as Eve "Baron," who got into prostitution with Nick Corelli’s help. She befriended Kimberly Brady and thinking Kim ruined her father and mother’s (Shane and Gabrielle) marriage, she set out to sabotage Kimberly and Shane's marriage. She eventually got into some trouble with the law after stealing a car and hitting Sarah Horton with it. She finally revealed Shane was her dad. He took her in and she continued causing issues. She crushed on Frankie Brady, even though he was interested in Jennifer Horton. Eve exposed Frankie’s affair with Paula Carson after he and Jennifer reconciled, causing issues between the couple. The plan backfired when Frankie left Salem in 1988. Eve was forced back into prostitution by then by Corelli. She asked a pregnant Kimberly for help which lead to an attack on Kimberly and the loss of her baby. Eve was also assaulted by the Riverfront Knifer, Harper Deveraux. Eve survived the attack, and left with a scar on her cheek. Corelli arranged for Eve to pose on the cover of a teen fashion magazine in order to help regain her self-confidence. Eve was thrilled, especially when the boys at school started to become interested. She didn’t realize that Jake bet his friend how fast he could score with a hooker, but when she found out, she attempted to kill herself by overdosing on sleeping pills. She lived through it and set the boys up and turned them into the police. Jake got back at her by kidnapping her and when Corelli tried to save her, he and Jake’s game of chicken went too far and Corelli’s car went over a cliff and exploded. Eve grieved over his passing and when it was announced that he left her everything in his will, suspicion fell upon her. She ran away and crashed a car. She was rescued and brought to an old deserted mansion by a man named Eddie. Eddie knew the mansion had belonged to Nick Corelli and he was searching for money Nick kept hidden there. When Eve happened to find an old key, Eddie took Eve to the bank where they attempted to open a safe deposit box. Eve managed to drop a note as to where she was being held captive, and thought to be dead Nick helped Shane rescue Eve. Steve, Kayla, and Nick were waiting for Eddie at the mansion, but he managed to elude them once again and the trio was charged with conspiring to hide Harper's money. They were let off later. Eventually Eve learned the man who helped her was Nick Corelli. He wore a mask to hide burns on his face and encouraged Eve to have her scar removed. Eddie was shot dead before Nick and Eve both had surgery to remove their scaring. Eve started singing at Nick’s new nightclub, Wings, and though she loved him, he married April Ramirez.
In 1990 a fierce storm hit Salem and left Faith paralysed. Eve Donovan, who was in love with Faith's boyfriend Scott, plotted to keep them apart. Her plans failed and the duo left Salem together. When Eve learned she must marry in order to claim the money Nick left her, she asked Frankie Brady to do it. He rejected her so she turned to Jack Deveraux. Jack needed the money to save The Spectator and agreed to marry Eve a year later. They married and shortly thereafter, their marriage was annulled. When Eve was wanted as a suspect in Nick's murder, she fled Salem. Frankie went after her and convinced her to return to Salem after she had been exonerated.
Later that year, Brian Scofield investigated Nick Corelli's murder as well. Brian and Melissa, Eve and Frankie, and Jack and Jennifer boarded a theme train where Johnny Corelli had stashed the weapon that was used to kill his brother Nick. When they found the weapon, Johnny Corelli detached the car they were in and it rolled down a mountain pass and derailed into a cold forest. Everyone was trapped in the valley and Eve eventually split away from Frankie and met up with a Molly Brinker. Molly drew Eve a map and Eve led the party to a safe location. A helicopter retrieved them. Eve was seriously injured when she fell from the helicopter ladder but once home, she was treated with respect for helping everyone make it home safely. When Molly showed up, everyone learned it was her map that saved them, not Eve. Eventually, Frankie and Eve went off to Africa to work for a charity organization.
Eve returned summer of 2014 because she heard Jack wrote a book and wanted to cash in. She visited Jennifer Horton and let her know she wanted half of the book proceeds and half the movie rights. She refused to settle for less which caused a slight issue for her daughter Paige who dates JJ Horton, Jennifer's son. She also was to get nodules on her vocal chords removed by Daniel Jonas, who she was interested in, but when her sister Theresa let her know Jennifer Horton had been dating the doctor, Eve fired Daniel as her doctor and went after him, wanting something more.

Jennifer barges into the Brady's pub and confronts Daniel and Eve. She should have known... Daniel's confused. He runs to take a call and Jenn accuses Eve of hanging out with Daniel just to get to her. Eve thinks that's her cue to go. Once Daniel's off the call, he asks for an explanation but Jenn scoffs and walks out on him.
Eve pops up in the park. She wants this summer to be the best of her daughter's life and asks for JJ's help. Paige returns and questions her mother. Eve says she was just catching up. She goes and Paige says she returned because community service isn't happening today. He lets her in on what her mother said and she tells him she doesn't want to give up on him.
Eve runs into Daniel at the Horton square and tells him she had no idea he knew Jennifer. He's skeptical. He tells her Jenn was pretty angry and with damned good reason. He knows about the lawsuit and is surprised his name never came up when she spoke with Theresa. He tells her he feels used and takes off.
Paige arrives home to Eve who tells her she's okay with her daughter dating JJ. The only problem is Jennifer.
Jenn opens her door to Eve and promptly shuts it in her face. Eve lets herself in and they yell over one another. Eve wants Jenn to go with another movie producer to make more money. She claims she's also looking out for their kids. She doesn't want them fighting. Jenn accuses her of using their kids as a pawn to get what she wants and physically throws her out and locks the door. Eve pounds on the door and calls Jenn unreasonable and a b****.
Daniel goes to Brady at John's hospital bedside. Brady doesn't understand how he turned into someone who could do this to their own father. By the hub, a pale Theresa flashes to hitting John. Abe and Hope approach hoping she'll repeat her story. She yells that it's not a story. Abe says they lifted two sets of prints. Brady's and a partial of Victor's. Theresa snaps that it makes sense. Vic does live there. Abe says somebody wiped the poker clean. Theresa panics and babbles that the mansion has maids. They ask why she moved Brady and John. They must have been moved quite a distance for Brady to have hit John as hard as he was hit. Aiden arrives. Theresa hired him to protect her husband since Justin is in Dubai. Hope's taken aback. Brady walks up and says he doesn't need a lawyer. "I'm guilty." Theresa walks Aiden to the elevator and Brady asks her to leave him be for now. He tells the cops his memory's a blank. He doesn't see how it could be self-defense. They notice he's not wearing his wedding ring yet he married Theresa last night. Could she have been the reason for the argument? He just doesn't know. Daniel arrives and says John is in stable condition but has slipped deeper into a coma. They don't know if he'll ever wake up. His brain 'went into safe mode' to give it time to heal. Eve finds Theresa a mess in the community room. Theresa spills coffee. Eve says, "Don't get any coffee on your tacky dress." She asks what her sister has done now and spots the ring. Theresa asks her to keep the marriage quiet for now and throws Eve out of the room. Back by the hub, Brady goes to see John and Daniel's handing John's case to the staff for long-term care. He's swinging by the pub to eat. Eve eavesdrops and Maxine hopes Daniel goes home to sleep. He goes and Eve follows.
Aiden returns to the hospital and advances toward Hope. She flashes to their intimate dance. He's there to see more clients and they discuss how well the gala went. Theresa yells at Abe nearby and then takes Aiden aside. She says the cops are trying to put words into her mouth. She goes to John's room and flashes again to beating on him. Brady asks if she's lying about what happened. She denies it and hugs him. Brady says he needs an AA meeting. Things need to change. Outside, Hope and Abe comment on how jumpy Theresa is. Either she's telling the truth, lying, or she did it herself. They have to wait for Brady or John to fill in the blanks. Later, Hope and Aiden share an awkward moment, deciding not to meet alone anymore. Aiden goes and Hope flashes to almost kissing him. She gulps. At the hub, Maxine tells Jenn where Daniel is, in the hopes she'll follow.
Eve follows Daniel to the pub, acting surprised to see him. They share a table. She fishes for information about Theresa but he doesn't bite. They tell stories about their kids, laugh and bond. Eve holds Daniel's arm and Jenn jealously spies them from outside.
