“Days of Our Lives” fans watch Rex Brady (then Eric Winter) struggle with his identity after finding out that he was the son of Roman Brady and Kate Roberts, per Soap Central. Rex became withdrawn from the friends that he’d made in Salem, including his girlfriend Mimi Lockhart (Farah Fath). He also began to have terrible headaches that worried those closest to him. His behavior also turned violent and when a serial killer started claiming victims in Salem, Rex quickly became a suspect.
After Rex came to terms with his parentage, Mimi found out that she was pregnant. She didn’t want to be a mother at that time and thought that Rex wouldn’t want to deal with the pressures of parenthood either. Mimi decided to have an abortion without consulting Rex first. When Rex later found out about Mimi’s decision he was furious and ended their relationship and left Salem (via Soaps in Depth).
In 2018, Rex returned to Salem with actor Kyle Lowder in the role. Rex came home engaged to Maggie Horton’s daughter, Sarah Horton, per Monsters and Critics. The two were set to be married when it was revealed that Rex had cheated on Sarah with his former flame Mimi and gotten her pregnant. In 2021, Rex returned to Salem again and was happy to find Roman and Kate romantically reunited.
Although Rex has popped up in Salem multiple times over the years, the same can’t be said for his twin sister Cassie.
