Fans were absolutely thrilled earlier this year when it was revealed that actress Arianne Zucker would be returning to Days of Our Lives as Nicole Walker. The last time Nicole had been seen on screen she was trapped in a burning building in Nashville, Tennessee and the implication was that she died in the fire.
But happiness soon turned to shock when Nicole peeled her face off and revealed that underneath a synthetic skin mask lurked uber villainess Kristen DiMera. And it turns out, according to Kirsten, Nicole really DID die in the Nashville inferno.
But are the fans really buying that story? Or do they believe that the real Nicole is out there alive and (hopefully) well? Here’s what 8,000 voters had to say:
Alive and Kicking
There’s 89% of you who believe that you can’t keep a good bitch down. Of course, Nicole is alive you shout! After all, Kristen was herself presumed dead in the same fire that supposedly took Nicole’s life. And your certainly not going to take the word of a psycho like Kristen at face value.
Dead As A Door Nail
Still, there are a few Debbie Downers out there. In fact, a little over 10% of you think that Nicole’s goose was certainly cooked all those months ago in Tennessee.
You don’t really WANT Nicole to be dead but you are telling us that you need to know that dead means dead. After all, in the past few years, DAYS has already told three back from the dead stories.
A smaller group of you DO want Nicole to stay dead because you are loving Arianne’s delightfully kooky take on playing Kristen whose playing Nicole and you want to see more of this delicious madness.
No matter the outcome there is one thing that’s for certain: The fans adore Arianne and want to see her onscreen no matter who she’s playing. Days of Our Lives airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
