Rafe Hernandez and Ava Vitali are growing closer on Days of our Lives. Some people like it. Some people hate it. And others are wondering whether he is just using the ex-Mafia princess as a way to get over the woman he still really loves – Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso). Has the top cop really gotten over his feelings for his ex-wife? What almost 4,000 voters told us:
Days of our Lives Polling: Lovely Bones
A winning 42% of you don’t even need to think about it. The answer is obviously, “Nope.” Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) and Hope were still in love when they broke up. Their issues were over Rafe wanting to adopt David and Hope’s obsession with Ciara Brady’s (Victoria Konefal) death. It’s not that they fell out of love, it’s that their lives were going in different directions. Well, now Rafe lost custody of David, and Ciara is back alive. Do we smell a reunion?
A smaller 32% of the audience thinks Rafe is still pining… but it’s not for Hope. It’s for Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker). They spent all that time together after Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) left to play Great White Savior. She’s the one he’s trying to forget when he dates Ava (Tamara Braun).
Only 16% of the fans are buying the Ava romance, but it makes perfect sense to you. Rafe loves to play hero, and he loves to reform the bad girl. Sure, Nicole is the obvious example. But we’re actually thinking back to… Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney). Rafe doesn’t judge, and always believes in the goodness of everyone. He’s a bad girl’s dream man!
This is probably why the last place 10% are saying forget Ava, Hope, and Nicole, and think Sami. Sure, she’s currently bouncing between Lucas Horton (Bryan Dattilo) and EJ DiMera (Dan Feurriegel), but she’ll get bored eventually, and start looking around for a new conquest. Rafe will always be there! Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
