Nicole has never been good at living alone on Days of our Lives. She needs male adoration like flowers need the sun. And when husband Eric (Greg Vaughan) took off for the entire continent of Africa – with no return date specified, fans knew his bride wouldn’t last long on her own.
Days of our Lives Polling
Of course, you also didn’t expect her to hit the sheets with Xander (Paul Telfer) of all people. Your money was more on Rafe (Galen Gering). Now that spoilers show it will happen, almost 6,000 voters had this to say about it:
A little over half of you, 52%, are devastated by the development. You sat through so much for Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Eric to finally find their way back to each other – once Brady (Eric Martsolf) was gotten rid of – and you did not do it for Nicole to cheat at the first opportunity. You feel disrespected. And kind of dirty.
The inverse number, 25% of the audience, is excited! Salem has been way too tepid lately, and a nice, messy affair is just what the town needs to shake it up. Even if Eric doesn’t get back in time to learn about it, there is still his family. Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Roman (Josh Taylor) may be displeased. But can you imagine what Sami (Alison Sweeney) will do when she learns that the witch who stole her baby, then married Sami’s beloved twin brother has now cheated on him?
And then there are the 23% who are simply confused. You thought Xander and Nicole hated each other. You know he kidnapped her? Forced her to marry him? Faked her and Holly’s deaths? Yeah, he’s hot as hell – especially with that accent and the kilt – but shouldn’t Nicole have some standards? Even in adultery? Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC.
