She clearly lost touch with reality based on the things she did when she came back to Salem, all in the name of trying to get Ben sent to prison. Now that she is in police custody, Jordan will be probed as Rafe tries to find out what happened to lead to her becoming the way she did on the Friday, Feb. 22 episode of “Days of Our Lives.”

Jordan (Chrishell Stause Hartley) committed a series of crimes after she returned to Salem, including kidnapping Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and Charlotte and then trying to kill the older hostage, attempting to kill Kate (Lauren Koslow) when she got too close to the truth and then framing her brother, Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) for the crimes before assaulting him on the NBC soap. She was finally taken in by the cops and will find herself being questioned by none other than her ex, Rafe (Galen Gering), who has become particularly worried about what’s happened to her because he knows that this behavior wasn’t the sort that the woman she once was exhibited.

Before she left for New York, Jordan was a well-respected doctor in Salem, and while it was clear that she had secrets from her past regarding both Ben and their step-father, Clyde (James Read), she never seemed to lose her cool. After she left Clyde and Ben both wreaked havoc in town, with Ben even becoming a serial killer. His release in recent months and being given the clean bill of health when it came to his mental state appeared to set Jordan off and force her to do the things she has now done—but Rafe will wonder if there is something more to her story.

As it turns out, she did previously drop a hint that she had been in a nasty car accident since she left Salem the first time, which could have some bearing on what happened to her. Though it’s unclear what happened when she had this accident and how she was injured, if she hit her head, it could partially explain why she suddenly seemed to suffer from an uncharacteristic psychotic breakdown.

However, even if she tells him something that could somehow justify everything she did, Rafe will have no choice but to eventually get Jordan some help—but whether that means keeping her in jail for her crimes or sending her off to Bayview remains to be seen.

“Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC.
