Useful information on Caroline Brady
* Owns the Brady Pub
Current: Sole Owner of the Brady Pub
Past: Co-Owner of the Brady Fish Market and the Brady Junkyard
Caroline married Shawn Brady and had three children with him, Roman, Kimberly and Kayla. They owned the Brady Pub, The Brady Fish Market and the Brady Junkyard! When her last born, Kayla was just a tot, Caroline had an affair with Victor Kiriakis, and wound up pregnant with Bo. She passed Bo off as Shawn's child, and they adopted Frankie and Max.
Victor found Caroline once again and tried to get her back. She stayed with Shawn, and Victor seduced her daughter, Kimberly. He also tried to get back at her by opening his own fish market - and sabotaging theirs.
Kimberly became pregnant and Victor tried to gain custody of little Andrew. A cop, Bo had been working on getting Victor jailed as a drug and crime lord. He almost shot him, so Caroline let the truth out that Victor was Bo's father. Bo saw that Caroline was troubled with Victor consistently so in order to save her the pain of being on Victor's bad side, he elected to allow Victor to be his father, openly. Victor was happy with this but Bo hated the man. Eventually, Victor faked that he'd had a vasectomy in order to allow Bo to think that he was Shawn's son.
Caroline is a good mother. After Kayla ended up in jail for the murder of Marina Toscano (she didn't do it), she tried to take the fall for Kayla but when it didn't work, Kayla was sent to prison, where she gave birth to Stephanie.
Caroline and Shawn met Dr. Carly Manning and after Hope 'died', her son Bo took comfort in Carly's arms. Shawn and Caroline went to see Kimberly in California and upon their return they found that Kayla was widowed and involved with Shane Donovan (Kim's ex). Kimberly was involved with Lawrence Alamain. Caroline was incensed, considering both men were horrible. Eventually the girls figured things out and the relationships were short lived.
Caroline had a heart attack after Sami came home pregnant from Colorado. It was around this time that they found out that Marlena's daughter Belle was fathered by John Black, not Roma.
Caroline is always there for the family and helped Marlena through her possession of the devil and helped Sami when she was arrested for Franco Kelly's murder.
When the Salem Stalker storyline came out, Caroline was poisoned by the Salem Stalker the day of Abe, Jack, and Maggie's wake. She 'died' during the church wake, but was found later on Tony DiMera's island, Melaswen.
After she was held with Victor, at a castle in Europe, believed to be dead, she was rescued shortly thereafter and continues to be there for her family. She was recently happy to find she has a granddaughter in Claire, from Shawn D and Belle yet devastated to learn about grandson Zack's death. She also found that Bo had a child all those years ago with Billie and is having issues with getting Chelsea to become the sweet girl she would like to see in Chelsea.
Caroline also recently almost lost Kayla due to a poisoning by EJ Wells, but Kayla is fine now.
Shawn Brady, Caroline's husband, died when Ava Vitali had her goons sabotage a plane that Steve Johnson was on.
Caroline continued running the pub with the help of her son, Max, who learned that his biological father was the Salem University Dean, Trent Robbins. Max discovered his long lost sister, Melanie Layton, in France, and returned with her to Salem. Caroline feared Max's rage towards Trent and warned Trent to stay away from Max. Caroline continued to fight with Trent, who repeatedly came to the pub and caused trouble.
While Caroline visited Shawn's grave at St. Luke's cemetery, Trent approached her, and Caroline saw that he was stabbed. Trent died as he stumbled towards her and Caroline was arrested at the scene of the crime.
Now that Nicole is imprisoned for Trent's murder, the charges against Caroline have been dropped. Caroline spends her time working at her pub and taking care of her granddaughter, Ciara. She isn't seen consistently.
Caroline and Victor Kiriakis spent some time together with Victor trying to court the Brady matriarch. Though she was interested and touched, she couldn't abide by the type of business Victor was into. He moved on to Maggie. When Caroline learned that Chloe was pregnant with Philip Kiriakis' baby, she changed the test results to show Parker was Daniel's baby. She didn't want the child to be brought up a Kiriakis.
Despite Caroline’s efforts, the truth about Parker’s paternity came out during Parker’s christening and everyone learned Parker was Philip's baby.
Caroline recently celebrated the renovation and opening of the Horton Town Square and is happy to see Hope and Bo back together. She does not appear on screen much but does babysit her grandchildren off-screen often.

Screaming girls offer to pay her for it. Mr. Burns doesn't seem to care that Dr. Jonas is up there.

She's holding his proxy at the next meeting so they go off to discuss more funding. Anne's incensed. The show is over and Caroline's thinking of making Friday nights here a regular thing. They get drinks and Brady's up next. Expecting Cameron, Anne gasps. Kristen tries to bond with Sami. She asks if EJ's up next. Sami laughs. He's out of town. This isn't exactly his thing. They laugh about Eric stripping and Sami hides her eyes from Brady's dancing. Rafe gets up on stage to strip and Sami starts downing booze. "Woooh!" She grins but looks uneasy. They share an awkward glance. Sami stands back while females slip bills into Rafe's pants. Abigail tells Mr. Burns that Rafe's a detective on the force. Kristen says to Sami, "Mercy me. You were married to that?" Kristen can understand why Rafe drove EJ crazy. Mr. Burns tries to leave but Anne is sure Cameron's up next and grabs him. Rafe leaves the stage and comes back out with Daniel, Brady, and Cameron. While the men dance, Anne goes nuts but Burns doesn't care. Maxine worries for Cameron and when the show ends, the men return fully clothed. Daniel and Cameron tell Mr. Burns that all the money they made from this evening goes toward the hospital charity.

Everyone claps. Sami tells Rafe he did great. They admit it was awkward. Kristen interrupts to introduce herself and notices Sami's engagement ring. Backstage, Abby babbles about her reason for gathering the strippers to ensure he wouldn't get fired from the hospital. Cameron listens for a time and then kisses her. He's thankful and sorry for his past behavior. Nobody's ever done something like this for him. Near the stage, Daniel gives his cowboy hat to a fan and flirts with Jenn in a southern accent before leaving. Rafe congratulates Sami on her engagement as does Brady. Kristen and Brady discuss getting a pole in their room and leave and Sami apologizes to Rafe for finding out about her upcoming marriage this way. All he wants is her happiness. She wonders why he hasn't told her how self-destructive it is. "You already know," he says. He doesn't need to say a thing.
