Rafe Hernandez and Jada Hunter make a good team on Days of our Lives when they are fighting criminals — or looking the other way when the criminals are their friends. But could their professional relationship ever become more personal? Is it a good idea to date a person you work with…and your boss?
Days of our Lives: Going Through Channels
Abe (James Reynolds) doesn’t want Jada (Elia Cantu) going out with Rafe (Galen Gering). It’s a Human Resources nightmare. So Abe made a new policy against it. Rafe is Jada’s supervisor. When their relationship goes bad — and this is Salem, all relationships eventually go bad — they are going to be open to a lawsuit. Follow the rules Jada, 16% advise. You and Rafe will both be happier that way.
Rafe Hernandez: The Good Boy
And even if Jada is willing to risk it, 34% of you don’t expect Rafe to go along. He cares much more about pleasing Abe, who isn’t just his boss, but also a father figure, too. Rafe is a guy who follows the rules…unless Sami (Alison Sweeney) is involved. Or Nicole (Arianne Zucker). But since Jada is neither one of them to him at the moment, he’ll stay on the straight and narrow and keep his distance from Jada. No matter how much he might want to rub any relationship of theirs in Eric’s (Greg Vaughan) face.
Jada Hunter: Separate Spheres
It should be no problem as long as they keep their personal life out of their professional space, 50% of the audience feels confident, Rafe and Jada know how to behave, and they know how to leave love at home, and work at work. Sure, Abe might be unhappy. But who is Abe to stand in the way of love? His wife isn’t exactly a law-abiding citizen. If he can forgive Paulina (Jackée Harry), why not Rafe and Jada, too?
