They’re Days Of Our Lives’ newest odd couple. No, not Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Eve (Kassie DePaiva). No, not Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and sleazy Ted (Gilles Marini). No, not Ciara (Victora Konefal) and serial-killer Ben (Robert Scott Wilson).
We’re talking about Xander (Paul Tefler) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker)… who is really Kristen (Stacey Haiduk) in disguise. Sure, they’re partners in crime now, but will Xander turn on his friendly, neighborhood psycho? Here’s what almost 3,000 viewers are expecting:
Time After Time
It’s only a matter of time, according to 98% of you. Xander cares about one person and one person only. That would be Xander. He has his own agenda and Kristen is a part of it, for now.
The moment he starts to suspect she’s no longer useful to him — or, worse, an actual impediment to Xander getting what he wants — he’ll double-cross her before she even has time to peel the Nicole mask off her face.
Especially now that Xander seems to have made an unexpected connection with Maggie (Suzanne Rogers). And Maggie has already seen Kristen out of her Nicole disguise. Xander will protect Maggie ahead of Kristen — and maybe pick up some Brownie points from Uncle Victor (John Aniston) in the process. And Sarah.
Edge of Never
Only 4% of the audience sees the Xander/Kristen alliance as a “we stand together or we hang separately” sort of thing. You think these two are ride or die, no matter the matter…or the Maggie.
Are their motives self-serving, or do they have genuine feelings for each other? Is this a case of two outcasts with no one else in the world clinging together, or a pair of master schemers who know two heads are better than one?
Either way, you don’t anticipate a rift in the near future. This couple is going to torch Salem!
