Xander Cook is too busy playing Hide the Body to pursue love lately, but DAYS spoilers and years of watching soaps and knowing how they work suggest this will change soon. This is the woman he will pursue.
DAYS Spoilers Spec: True Love
It wasn’t even close, as 89% of the audience predict it will be Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey), Xander’s (Paul Telfer) true love. They’ve been through so much together! There was Sarah’s pregnancy, the first year of Mickey’s life, the realization that she was really Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk) switched-at-birth baby – and that Xander did the switching – not to mention finding their way back to each other after that bombshell.
Xander and Sarah were all set to get married, when Kristen kidnapped Sarah, stuffed her in a trunk, and sent her off to a deserted island. Xander always suspected something wasn’t up to snuff. Well, now he should follow those instincts, find the girl of his dreams, bring her back home, and live happily ever after, damn it!
Days of our Lives Partner In Crime
In comparison, only a pathetic 9% speculate Xander will seek a future with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), no matter how many wacky adventures the show insists on sending them on in order to make us fall in love with them.
Sure, they’ve got a lot in common and she probably won’t spend her time trying to change him, but their banter doesn’t make us think of love buried under hate. It just makes us think of hate. Which makes us think they should head their separate ways as soon as possible.
The only woman fans want with Xander less than Gwen is Nicole Walker Brady (Arianne Zucker). Sure, they had a one-night stand. And, sure, he spilled the beans about it at her anniversary party with Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) – for a cool payout from Sami Brady DiMera (Alison Sweeney). But that doesn’t mean any more than 2% of you can predict the two of them ending up together.
