It looks like Tripp will be spending some Days Of Our Lives (DOOL) in Salem. But does he need to spend them alone?
The first thing a new soap opera arrival needs to do is figure out whom he is related to, and take those folks off his potential dating list.
In Tripp’s (Lucas Adams) case, the definite no-nos include his brother Joey (James Lastovic), sister Stephanie (luckily, she’s out of town), then cousins Sonny (Freddie Smith), JJ (Casey Moss), and Abigail (Marci Miller).
He’s pretty lucky the Johnsons aren’t too big of a local clan. Sure, he’s related to the Bradys via stepmom Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), but those aren’t blood relations, so it’s all good. And Steve (Stephan Nichols) never dipped into the Horton family tree at all.
Figuring she’s lost Theo (Kyler Pettis) to Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan), Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) might be receptive to Tripp’s attentions. Conversely, she might try throwing Claire into Tripp’s path and seeing what happens.
Just because he’s related to Joey and Abigail doesn’t mean Tripp needs to stay away from their significant others (it would be the nice thing to do, but is Tripp striking anyone as a nice guy?).
Joey told Jade (Gabrielle Haugh) he didn’t feel about her the way she feels about him. So… that means Jade is available, right? Tripp’s brother won’t mind. And if he does — that’s even better!
Meanwhile, cousin Abigail sure would love to get Gabi (Camilla Banus) away from her husband, Chad (Billy Flynn). Maybe there’s something Tripp can do to help there?
It’s Raining Men
Finally, why make assumptions? Sonny’s mom and Tripp’s dad may be siblings, but Sonny’s on-again/off-again/currently-on Paul (Christopher Sean) could be fun to mess with. It’s not as awesome as pissing off your newfound half-brother but, again, does Tripp seem like someone who wouldn’t enjoy stirring up jealousy — and excitement?
