Kate is having a very busy week on Days of our Lives! First, Abigail spilled to Jennifer that Jack slept with Kate while Jennifer was in a coma. Then Kate (Lauren Koslow) slept with Jake (Brandon Barash). You go, Kate! It’s Cougertown! None of those sexless after-50 clichés, here! She’s a hot great-grandma, for Pete’s sake!
Days of our Lives Polling
But now that we’ve given Kate a round of applause, we also have to ask the question: Kate… and Jake? What almost 2,000 viewers had to tell us about that:
A winning 58% of you didn’t have an answer to our question. You only had a sound: Ew… Maybe there was a disgusted facial expression to go with it. Kate is a sexy, sophisticated, smart woman. Jake fiddles around with car engines and has trouble with multi-syllable words. It is not a dream match.
Plus, there’s the fact that Kate was married to Stefano (Joseph Mascolo). And Andre (Thaao Penghlis). How many members of the same family is she planning to go through? If we may repeat ourselves: Ew.
A smaller 22% of the audience is afraid things might get weird. Why might they get weird? Oh, you know, what we just said above. That whole sleeping through a single family thing. Also, Jake has some major issues with Chad (Billy Flynn), whom Kate thinks of as a son. That’s setting up some fun times at the DiMera mansion!
Go For It, Kate
Then again, an almost equal 20% think it’s an awesome idea! Kate deserves to be adored and feted. After years of slick, rich guys, maybe a down to earth fellow with dirt under his fingernails is just what Kate needs. As for what Jake needs, Kate can teach him everything he needs to know to take his place as a true DiMera man. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
