Days of Our Lives rumors tease that Evan Frears/Christian Maddox’s (Brock Kelly) lawyer, Zoey (Kelly Thiebaud) will shock Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) by wanting to adopt David Ridgeway (Kyler and Caleb Ends) in an upcoming episode of Days of Our Lives; could she be Evan’s sister?
Milo Harp AKA Orpheus Had Two Children, A Boy And A Girl
Longtime Days of Our Lives viewers will recall that Milo Harp, aka Orpheus, (George DelHoyo) had two children – a boy and a girl. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) had been kidnapped by Orpheus and forced to care for them when they were little, after Orpheus lost his wife thanks to an accidental shooting Roman Brady (Josh Taylor) when Roman was still in the ISA and Mrs. Harp, whose name was Rebecca, unfortunately got in the way of a bullet meant for who Roman had thought was a KGB agent and died.

Rebecca had come to their camp, where they were on a mission with gunfire all around, to warn them that KGB agents were closing in. Milo Harp then turned dark, and started using the alias “Orpheus” having previously been Roman’s ISA partner. He was thought dead for many years, after Roman had shot and thought he had killed him at a later time, but emerged in 2016 after an escape from a prison transport van along with Clyde Weston (James Read) and Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer). He again faked his death after being shot by Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) after a reign of terror lasting two months, and reappeared when he was revealed as the father of Evan Frears/Christian Maddox and grandfather of David Ridgeway. In an unusual move, Rafe will be shocked by Evan/Christian’s family court attorney, Zoey, when she wants to adopt David! Could this be because Zoey is Christian’s sister, Orpheus’ daughter?
DOOL Spoilers: A Family Court Attorney Should Have No Legal Standing To Adopt The Child In Question
If Zoey is only a family court attorney representing Evan/Christian in a custody case against Rafe, who has cared for David most all his life, she should have no legal standing to be able to request to adopt him! It would seem that there would be a major conflict of interest here! It is highly likely that Zoey is Evan/Christian’s sister, because a close blood relative would be favored in an adoption as opposed to someone unrelated to the child. Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) has a felony criminal record, so unfortunately he would not be approved of and besides, he doesn’t currently have a job or the ability to provide a stable home and life for David.
Zoey, as a practicing attorney, would, although in real life she would not be representing Evan/Christian as his attorney if she were wanting to adopt David herself – as mentioned before, that would constitute a legal conflict of interest. If Zoey is his sister, then she would be David’s aunt and the closest living relative who could be considered suitable by the family court judge. It does seem likely that Zoey may be Orpheus’ daughter and Christian Maddox’s sister!
