You’d think it would be obvious on Days of our Lives. Hope (Kristian Alfonso) is acting strangely. Hope is talking strangely. Hope is living strangely. HOPE IS NOT HERSELF. Has anyone noticed? Not really. Not yet. Who will? Almost 3,000 fans are pinning their hopes (ha!) on the following:
Rafe (Galen Garing) was married to Hope. He doesn’t have much else on his plate these days. Evan (Brock Kelly) is doing a great job taking care of David. And he’s so rarely right about anything. Maybe Rafe is due. It’s why 42% of you expect him to figure out the woman he used to love (still loves) is actually the haughty Princess Gina.
Is there nothing our Doc can’t do? That’s what 35% of Days of our Lives fans want to know. She can offer therapy in the form of friendly advice to Kayla (Mary Beth Evans). She can fill in Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) and Eric (Greg Vaughan) about their daughter’s illness. (We know she went to medical school, but why is a psychiatrist playing oncologist… or even pediatrician?)
So, sure, why not have Marlena (Deidre Hall) figure out the truth about Gina. She’s already kind of suspicious.
Clues For Ciara
A much smaller 12% is counting on Ciara (Victoria Konefal). This isn’t some ex-wife we’re talking about here, this is her MOM. Mothers and daughters have a bond, and there’s no way Hope can fake that. Sure, Ciara is very busy right now with the Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) boondoggle. But she’ll get back to her mom… any day now.
She’s been coming onto him like crazy, yet John (Drake Hogysten) still sees nothing odd about Hope’s behavior. Which is probably why only 11% of the audience believes he’ll ever put two and two together and come up with something other than — She’s just being friendly! Let’s drink more wine!
