This has been going on since the 1980s on Days of our Lives. Victor (John Aniston) does something bad, hurts many people, some even members of his family. They line up to berate him. Time passes. They forget. He does it again. Performance repeats.
Days of our Lives Polling
But has Victor really done it this time? Was letting Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) think their daughter was dead while letting Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) think the baby she was raising was the same one she gave birth to a bridge too far? Can he ever be forgiven? What over 4,000 viewers say:
An almost majority 49% of you believe that Victor can only be forgiven if he really, truly changes this time. No more second chances! After all, Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) can only forgive the man who absolutely crushed her daughter’s heart only so many times… Until the next time.
Don’t Go Changing
And then there are the 39% of you who know the ultimate soap opera secret: Any evil is forgivable… as long as you do it for your family. Follow this logic: To protect wife, Maggie, Victor destroyed his grandson, Brady, and his stepdaughter, Sarah, not to mention his nephew, Xander’s (Paul Telfer), love life – and let his great-nephew, Sonny’s (Freddie Smith) husband, Will (Chandler Massey) rot in prison.
It may not make sense to you, but we bet General Hospital’s Sonny (Maurice Benard) and The Young and the Restless’s Victor (Eric Braeden) understand completely.
Not This Time
Only 12% of the fans believe that Victor’s remorse – and the gaping wound in his chest – is too little, too late. You don’t care how many crocodile tears he sheds, this latest stunt was unforgivable, and he should have the entire extended Kiriakis clan turn their backs on him, once and for all.
