Now you see him, now you don’t on Days Of Our Lives. One minute, Kayla’s (Mary Beth Evans) stepson, Tripp (Lucas Adams), was knee-deep in the Haley (Thia Megia) mess, to the point of dumping Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) to marry Hayley. Claire did not take it well.
And then, in the next moment, Tripp was telling Haley and JJ (Casey Moss) that hey, remember when I told you I applied for medical school — I didn’t tell you? Thought I did — and remember how I told you I was wait-listed — I didn’t tell you that, either?
Hmmm… weird — well, anyway, I got off the wait-list, and I’m leaving for med school. Tomorrow? Yeah, bye, Salem! How do a whiplashed almost 6,000 fans feel about that? Here’s what they had to say:
Be Back Soon
The majority 69% are hoping for a swift return. If he was wait-listed, that suggests Tripp wasn’t medical school material in the first place. And if he isn’t medical school material, then maybe he’ll flunk out soon and be back in Salem in no time!
Why does he even have to leave in the first place, 22% wonder? Tripp has become a pivotal part of the canvas, especially with Joey in jail for the foreseeable future. What about the triangle we were promised between him, Haley and JJ… and maybe even crazy Claire, too!
Keep Your Distance
Of course, then there’s the 7% of you who hope Tripp never comes back. This long-lost son of Steve never made much sense, even with an extreme case of Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome. The less anyone remembers he exists, the better.
Too Small To Count
And then there are the less than 1% of the audience that offered a resounding, “Who cares?” You didn’t care about Tripp being here, you don’t care that he’s gone. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
