Days of our Lives fans Mourned when Stefan, the love of Gabi’s life, was gunned down instead of his crazy mama. Gabi (Camila Banus) vowed revenge against Lani (Sal Stowers). That was fun. But not as much fun as when she and Stefan were being bad together.
Days of our Lives Polling
Now, over a year later (in Salem time), comes a stranger with Stefan’s (Brandon Barash) face – and a few other hunky body parts. Is he a total stranger? Or another escapee from the island of Melaswen? Almost 3,000 fans made the call!
Back From the Dead
Of course, he’s really Stefan, 59% of the audience refuses to consider any other possibility. Gabi and Stefan were cheated of a long, happy, and sexy life together. This is their second chance.
If John (Drake Hogysten) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) keep getting them, Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi), Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) – then this supercouple does, too! He’s Stefan… who picked up a new skill fixing cars. While dead.
No way, 24% of Days of our Lives fans counter, a return from the dead would cheapen what Stefan and Gabi had. Let Jake be Jake. And let Gabi win at love for a change. Besides, you know the first thing that would happen if Jake turns out to be Stefan is Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) would use it as an opportunity to be even nastier to Gabi about Julie getting the wrong heart. Or something. Stefan’s death humanized Gabi. If it turns out to be nothing, she’ll be back to all-around persona non grata again.
Of course, 17% have observed Salem long enough to know that no one is really and truly dead… until they are. So you’re reserving judgment and admitting you just don’t know one way or the other. But you’re excited by the opportunity to wait and see. And watch. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
