Things are bound to get interesting on Days of Our Lives, now that Steve is about to connect with his long, lost son, Tripp.
Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla left Salem to track him down, after some sleuthing revealed that Tripp is actually alive and living in Arizona.
It turns out he was given up for adoption shortly after he was born. Steve knows nothing about the young man he’s about to meet, but can only hope Tripp doesn’t take after his wicked mother, Ava. How do Days of Our Lives fans feel about Tripp’s addition to the soap and, in particularly, the Johnson family? Nearly 7,000 of you voted in our Soap Hub poll.
Bad News for the Johnsons
Nothing good is going to come out of Tripp’s introduction to DAYS, say a major 82% of fans. You fully expect the character to be nothing but bad news for the Johnson clan.
He’s bound to resent Steve for not finding him sooner, not to mention half-brother Joey (James Lastovic), who grew up knowing his parents loved him. And Tripp’s resentment for Joey is likely to escalate once he learns that his is the person who offed his late mom, Ava.
A Great Addition to Salem
An optimistic 17% of you are anticipating Tripp will be a great addition to Salem and the Johnson family. With Stephanie out of the picture, it will be nice to see Steve and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) have another child to interact with.
You’re hoping that Tripp quickly bonds with Steve and that Kayla takes him under her wing and offers him the motherly love he never received from Ava. As far as Joey goes, you’d like to see the two half-brothers develop a solid friendship instead of the show going the predictable route and making them enemies.
Don’t Know Yet
The remaining 1% of you either aren’t sure or simply don’t care about Tripp (Lucas Adams), yet. You like the Johnson clan as is and don’t really think it needed to expand.
However, you’re not opposed to it either. You’ll just wait and see before reaching a decision on the DAYS newbie.
