For those that watch Days regularly, you may have
noticed Roark giving the "I love you" sign while he was
dancing with "Nurse Ali" in the show broadcast on
Wednesday July 29. Here is a picture from Mike R:

Mike Horton FAQ:
Grandmother - Alice Horton
Grandfather - Tom Horton
Father - Bill Horton
Mother - Laura Horton
Sister - Jennifer Blake
Half-Brother - Lucas Roberts
Mike Horton has the most sordid and lengthy history of
almost any current character on Days. Beginning from his
childhood, Mike was destined to be dazed and confused about
his identity. He thought that Mickey was his father, but
later learned that Mickey was impotent and that his
biological father was his Uncle Bill, who had unintentionally
raped his mother (who really loved him and eventually ended
up with Bill anyway). It took him a long time to get over this.
In his early adult life Mike was plagued by an addiction to
gambling and he had serious financial difficulties. While he
was suffering these life stresses he was also watching his
first wife succumb to cancer. After her death Mike went through
several romances including his interest in Janice, a woman
involved with his father Bill. This only forced the strained
relationship between father and son to become worse.
There are two other significant love interests that should be
mentioned. One is Robin whom he loved deeply despite their
conflicts over the issue of religious differences. He had a
son with Robin, but he and Robin split and his son remains
indefinitely with his mother in Israel. The other woman in
his life was April. She was perfect for Mike, funloving and
playful, unfortunately that didn't work out either.
Recently, he has discovered that he loves Carrie. He is also
the chief of staff at the hospital. Craig and Nancy are
plotting to have him removed as the chief of staff. Nurse Ali
is after him hard and heavy too.
Will things work out for him, or will Carrie stay with the
loser...oops I mean Austin.
