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.

At the Brady's pub, Caroline complains to Hope that Bo wasn't at the wedding. Hope offers to help around the pub since Bo's not around. Caroline admits Father Louis called to ask for her help in getting Hope to work with Aiden Jennings. Hope scoffs and calls the priest incorrigible. She's not working with Aiden. Caroline piles on the guilt and when it does nothing, she wonders why Hope has such a strong reaction to the man when everyone else finds him charming.
Back at the pub, Rafe searches Ben's name online but comes up with nothing. He types in Jordan's name but can't bring himself to commit to a search. Hope leaves and Jordan arrives. The two go for a walk and Jordan questions how distant he's being.
Marlena begins the wedding ceremony for Will and Sonny at the Kiriakis mansion. She asks Caroline to say her speech but Caroline stays seated, confused. Everyone looks nervous. Will goes to her and she remembers his name and goes to the podium. She talks about her first customers at the pub and the guests look puzzled. She says he was ignored by his family and she couldn't figure out why until she realized he was gay. Everyone starts to weep as she says it gave her pause. She's so proud that her grandson and Sonny will never have that problem with their family. She gives them kisses and takes a seat. Everyone claps. Justin recalls Sonny having no fear. When he was fifteen, he came out and once again showed his fearlessness. Justin's in awe of his son who can handle anything. Lucas gets up and jokes that Will's coming out was identical. Everybody laughs and Lucas says Will was a better son than he and Sami deserved. Lucas is sorry for his original reaction to Will coming out. It wasn't the life he envisioned when Will was born...It's better. Sami cries. Lucas is proud and holds Will close. WilSon's sexy guitar music plays while Sonny tells the family to take a look at some old photos of all of those who have supported them. They thank their guests and say their vows. Sonny calls their life together the greatest adventure of his life. Will admits he never thought about his future and didn't know he'd find love like this. Will says he respects, admires, adores and loves Sonny. Sonny cries. They exchange rings and say their vows. Marlena pronounces them husbands for life. The men kiss and balloons fall from the ceiling. Everyone mingles and Will tells Sami she and Lucas taught him that family is the most important thing. Sami's proud. Victor asks Caroline for a copy of that speech. Nearby, Ciara tells Theresa her bag "is to die for." Theresa says it's a gift and promises to teach her how to wrap boys around her finger in middle school. Abby, Gabi, and Jordan hang out outside and Abby looks uncomfortable when EJ and Sami stroll out, kissing. They head back inside and JJ strums guitar during the first dance. EJ later tells the guys Sami has reserved a room at the Salem Inn for them. Sonny swears to Will they'll have a honeymoon, soon. They thank Marlena for officiating. Roman says Carrie couldn't come because the baby was too sick to fly with an ear infection. They're sad to miss the wedding. It's the best Roman he has ever been to. The men embrace. Theresa goes to Jenn. "I hear you've been talking smack about me." Jenn doesn't want to talk to her. Abby drags Jenn away and JJ asks Theresa to back off. A waiter accidentally spills the contents of his platter over Theresa's dress causing Jenn and Abby to laugh. Eric and Jenn leave to go find Nicole and Daniel while Brady follows Theresa into his bedroom where she cleans up. Roman catches them kissing and cautions Brady not to hurt Theresa. Downstairs, Sami and Adrienne both want to give the first toast. They say a speech together and start competing over who is going to be the most generous. EJ saves the day and ends the toast. Everyone laughs. Will drags Kate outside to ask if she's upset that they asked Marlena to officiate. Kate's fine with it and happy Marlena's been there for him. She cries. Will tells her Marlena's a lousy poker player. Kate taught him everything about poker. She also taught him how to stand up for himself and survive. They hug and later, the guys cut the cake and feed it to each other. When they're ready to go, the guests throw confetti at them.
