Love in the afternoon is what Days Of Our Lives used to be known for, but is that still the case in the 21st Century?
Marlena (Deidre Hall) can barely get John (Drake Hogysten) away from his work for a romantic evening. And when he puts down the papers, she starts stressing about Brady (Eric Marstolf) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker).
Meanwhile, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and Ben’s (Robert Scott Wilson) idea of romance is lurking under beds — not on top of them. Eric (Greg Vaughn) and Sarah (Linsay Hartley) are canoodling while she’s still married to his brother, Rex (Kyle Lowder), and newlyweds Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) are more interested in computer hacking than each other. So where’s the romance? Does Salem need more? What over 12000 fans had to say:
I Want Your Love
Yes, please, 78% of the audience is begging. And you know what else would be awesome? If that romance was for vets, not just newbies. Sure, JJ (Casey Moss) swooping into Haley’s (Thia Megia) rescue was romantic… but what about reuniting his meant-to-be parents, Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves)?
Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) deserves to have her Steve (Stephan Nichols) back, and if Hope (Kristian Alfonso) can’t be with the love of her life, Bo (Peter Reckell), then how about someone more romantic than Rafe (Galen Gering)?
Couples slobbering over each other isn’t a story, 22% of you counter. You tune in for drama and happy couples just don’t fit the bill.
You want to see angst, scheming, back-stabbing and double-crossing. That’s what gives meaning to the romance. Couples are great, but couples should be doing something interesting if DAYS expects to hold your attention.
Plus, there are other relationships. Family, friends, enemies. You want to see that, too. Everything in moderation! Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
