On Days of our Lives, Gwen has broken up Abigail and Chad, exposed Jack’s affair with Kate to Jennifer, and she may have killed Laura. Gwen (Emily O’Brien) is a bad girl. Does a bad girl deserve love? What over 5,000 viewers think:
Days of our Lives Polling: Nothing Doing
A winning 41% of you don’t believe Gwen deserves anything – much less love. Jack (Matthew Ashford), a reformed rapist, does. Abigail (Marci Miller), a killer, does. Chad (Billy Flynn), an adulterer, does.
But not Gwen. Gwen told lies, spoke truths, and slept with Chad, thus turning him into an adulterer in the first place. (The jury is still out on whether or not she actually killed Laura.) She’s not like the rest of them. She’s a foreigner. So no love for Gwen!
Daddy Day Care
A slightly smaller 36% of the audience is willing to allow Gwen some love from her dad. They never got the chance to have a relationship, and that’s what’s driven her to these extremes, in the first place. So Jack is allowed to make some overtures her way. Mostly so that Gwen has no more excuses for being bad. And so we can continue to dislike her even more.
A last-place 23% think what Gwen needs is the love of a good man – who is not her father. Love fixed up Jack. It restored Abigail to mental health. It made Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) less of a serial killer, and Xander (Paul Telfer) less of a kidnapper. And Brady (Eric Martsolf) believes his love for Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) made her incapable of ever doing bad things again. (Despite blatant evidence to the contrary.)
So why shouldn’t love reform Gwen? She not only deserves to be loved, she needs to be. So that she will no longer be a danger to society. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
