Days of our Lives was always the supercouple soap. But is the tradition continuing? Is there enough love in Salem or does it need more? What over 3,000 said to us:
Days of our Lives: Give Me Love, Love, Love
It’s not even close, as 85% of you offer up an emphatic yes! Seriously, is a woman putting on a latex, lifelike mask of her rival in order to seduce her ex supposed to be romantic?
How about a woman who’s been turned into a Eurotrash princess going after a happily married man? Two couples have a significant other in jail, one facing the death penalty, the other pushing divorce papers.
Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) only remembers she loves Victor (John Aniston) when he’s at death’s door, and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is about as ‘meh’ on Justin (Wally Kurth) as the audience seems to be.
Gabi (Camila Banus) is a vengeful widow who only wants Eli (Lamon Archey) so that Lani (Sal Stowers) can’t have him. And Lani is too wishy-washy to tell the man she supposedly loves that she only dumped him at the altar because Gabi was threatening to blow up Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) heart via a phone app. (Yup, there’s an app for that.) That’s not love and romance — that’s torture and tears!
There’s More To Life Than That
A smaller 15% of Days of our Lives fans are cool with how things are. Love is great, but it has to come with some other compelling tale. You’re just as interested in the corporate shenanigans of Gabi and Chad (Billy Flynn), JJ’s (Casey Moss) drug battle, and the mystery of what really happened to Haley (Thia Megia). Also, was Sarah’s (Linsey Godfrey) baby switched with Kristen’s (Stacy Haiduk)?
Tell us a story where love is a part of the pie, not the whole darn thing! Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
