On Days Of Our Lives (DOOL), JJ, Lani, Gabi, and Eli might not know they’re in a quad. But they kind of are. There are numerous couple possibilities here. So which do fans prefer? Here’s what almost 10,000 of you had to say.
JJ (Casey Moss) and Gabi (Camilla Banus) were a couple before Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) were much of a Salem presences. They got each other. They understood the pressures the other was under, personal and professional.
In fact, 48% of you would like to see JJ and Gabi give it another try.
On the other hand, venture 20% of the audience, Lani and JJ have the whole cop-thing in common. Lani stood by JJ after Theo’s (Kyler Pettis) shooting, even as Abe (James Reynolds) raged, and JJ deliberately pushed her away.
She’s shown that she believes in him and is willing to put JJ ahead of her own family — if it comes to that. Can Gabi say the same?
JJ and Gabi had their chance, and it didn’t work out, remind 18% of viewers. Gabi and Eli, on the other hand, have a good thing going. They’re playful and flirty, plus they’re both inside and outside in Salem.
Sure, they’re related to core families. Eli recently learned he’s Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) grandson, which makes him a Horton. And Gabi is Will’s baby-mama, which makes her an honorary Horton and Brady. But neither will ever feel like they completely belong… with anyone but each other.
In last place, with 12%, were Eli and Lani. Maybe it’s because they’re both newbies. Maybe it’s because they’re only tangentially connected to core families. David’s illegitimate son! Abe’s illegitimate daughter!
We didn’t watch them grow up, so they still feel like strangers. Or because their pairing just feels so obvious, that fans are rejecting it on those grounds, alone.
