Dastardly dad.

In this week’s Throwback Thursday poll, Soaps.com takes readers back to 1993 when “Days of our Lives'” Billie and Austin Reed’s bad seed father Curtis showed up in town…

Currently, Jordan and Ben are the brother/sister duo with a bad daddy, Clyde, who has tracked them down in Salem. Back then, Billie and Austin’s father, Kate Roberts’ nasty former husband Curtis, showed up in town with the intention of committing a crime. Billie saw him in action, but lied to the police so that Bo Brady, whom she was dating, wouldn’t find out Curtis had hooked her on drugs and molested her as a little girl. While in Salem, Curtis made enemies of a few well-connected people and eventually wound up shot dead in an alley. Though Billie’s gun was used in the murder, she was found innocent at trial and it was revealed that Stefano had killed Curtis in self-defense. At the same time, Kate found out that Billie and Austin were her children – Curtis had taken them from her when they were young and told her they were dead.

After Curtis’ reign of terror, Billie and Austin moved on with their mother, Kate. Do you remember the reason Curtis came to Salem? Vote in our “Days” poll:
