At long last, Days of Our Lives (DOOL) Sonny and Paul are just like any other soap opera couple. They were all set to be married when… oops… it appears that Sonny’s late husband, Will, may still be alive! Welcome to Daytime Drama 101, boys!
And let the fan wars begin! Should it be Sonny and Paul (Paulson) or Sonny and Will (Wilson)? Or maybe a third, unexpected possibility? Over 10,000 Salem fans cast their vote!
Where There’s a Will, There Should Be No Paulson Wedding
Paul (Christopher Sean) is a nobody! Sure, they retroactively tied him into John (Drake Hogysten) and some woman we’d never heard of (and haven’t heard from since). But Will and Sonny are DAYS royalty!
Sonny’s parents are one of the most tortured supercouples ever, Justin and Adrianne, while Will’s mom is so-bad-she’s-good Sami… and glutton for punishment Lucas. Sonny and Will are the couple you’re invested in, and they’re the ones 54% of viewers want to see live happily ever after.
Casting a Paul Over the Proceedings
Will (Chandler Massey) is a boy (and a maybe dead one, at that). Paul is an adult, more in Sonny’s (Freddie Smith) league. They aren’t some childish crush, argue 39% of you. They’re the real thing. They’re the ones most likely to make it for the long haul. And, oh, yeah, they’re both alive. That helps.
Sonny With An Outside Chance
And then there’s the contrary 5% that wants Paul and Will both to ditch Sonny — for each other. After all, Will cheated on Sonny with Paul (though Paul didn’t know Will was married; Will is so much like his mother).
They have serious chemistry, and owe it to themselves to see where it could lead. Sonny dumped Will before he died. If he’s alive, Will should remember that.
