Doug & Julie!

I guess I will have to say Steve and Kayla since it was their love story that got me hooked on Days in the first place– but I also liked Jack and Jen’s early romance. I liked Doug and Julie as well. I liked the original Roman and Marlena abd I liked RKK’s Bo with Billie.

Steve and Kayla is what got me watching DAYS, too. He was pushing her away so she’d marry his dying brother Jack to give him something to live for .. and it was just KILLING him! He was such a good actor, reminds me of James Dean! His tears and angst felt so REAL, I just had to keep watching. I fell for Justin&Adrienne, Roman&Diana too. DAYS really knew how to do a good love story. Pull-out-all-the-stops, don’t miss a beat, over-the-top, as the beautiful couples’ theme songs played and they went on location in Greece .. ROMANCE! Loved Jack and Jen, too. I do believe DAYS has had more supercouples that I absolutely loved than any other soap.

Shane and Kimberly are #1 with me. Right behind them would be Bo and Hope, and Steve and Kayla, and Roman (Wayne Northrup) and Marlena.

Harry

Because I am not a long time Days viewer and because I have John Oliver fresh on my mind, I say Sami and EJ all the way because they not only care about each other, they care about the Syrian refugees!

Bo and Hope are the ultimate super couple. They have been through it all including death. Their chemistry together at times has been nothing short of astounding which makes me love watching them all the more. They make it totally believable that they are soul mates.

Steve & Kayla

The first supercouple; Doug and Julie…then ill say Tom and Alice, Mickey and Maggie, Susan and Greg, Bill and Laura, Don and Marlena, Chris and Mary…i liked all the couples in the 60s and 70s …in the 80s to the present i liked Hope and Bo, Patch and Kayla, Shane and Kim, Abe and Lexi, Tony and Anna and those two dogs that got married…lol…Days had many couples i liked, and some i didnt mention but my all time favorite and who were the most romantic were Doug and Julie-they dont write them like that anymore!

Mary SF

The only couple on canvas right now that has a shot of having a great romance is Theresa and Brady—that kiss at the end of today’s show reminded me of the kisses of days of old, it was based in tenderness and not lust; they have the great love hate thing happening between them, both wounded and wary— it written right, they could be a great super couple as they overcome their past to realize they really do love each other deeply and profoundly– so after my disappointment that the murder mystery turned into a thriller that sweet moment made me forgive the show.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

That was a nice little moment in the midst of all that gloom and doom…yes, it was a bit too soon to let us know who the killer is but i keep wondering if someone like Andre or even Clyde are using mind control on Ben and having him unwittingly kill these people?

Wow, you have been watching a LOOOOOONG time. I started watching in the ’80s, but my mom has been a big fan from the beginning, and she’s filled me in on all those early couples you loved. They are all part of soap history and I love it when the show references its long, rich history. Like when Julie, Maggie and Caroline were at the house, talking about Susan and how she killed her husband. Love it! More, please! You know, I do remember Doug and Julie, I was just a kid, but I remember him singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” to her and I also remember his little French friend, Robert, who loved Hope’s nanny. So sweet.

I don’t watch Days of our Lives today but when I did, it was the 1990s and I use to rush home to watch it for Jack and Miss Horton and Bo and Carly!!!

Those were my Days love stories and I will give honorable mentions to John and Isabella and Carrie and Austin…not as great as my favorites but I liked them then.

When I think of Days today….Jack and Jen and Bo and Carly are the only two things I think of…those love stories stayed with me.

mollie

I hope you start watching Days again…it’s quite good. Lots of vets getting screen time, a murder “mystery”, better writing and conversational scenes.

Hope you watch and like it 🙂

#1 Steve and Kayla

Best from Days and best in all of daytime.

I’ve loved many couples on many soaps but no one has ever matched Steve and Kayla IMO.

Their un-rushed romance , their story lines and the unmatched chemistry between Mary Beth and Stephen.

Candy798591
Candy798591

I agree Scoma60!! Their two day wedding episodes that aired on July 22 and July 25, 1988 was the most watched and highest rated Days of our Lives episodes since 1974. Days of Our Lives reached # 1 in the Nielsen ratings and Days hasn’t reached that status since 1988. For Steve and Kayla’s wedding in 1988, they didn’t say the traditional vows they spoke from the heart and you saw the emotions from them. When she spoke for the first time at the wedding since she regained her hearing from being deaf; that was the touching moments on a soap. You saw and felt the love that they shared. Their wedding stood out as well as their love story. They always showed the emotion and loved only each other. Their wedding was beautiful, romantic and fun and you can tell the entire cast had a good filming. I saw pictures behind the scenes. Steve and Kayla had the best wedding on soaps. That’s what made their love story stand out among the rest. Steve and Kayla are the ultimate couple!!!

Annie
Annie

And pipsqueak
Lucas framed her for murder and caused her to fall off a cliff and yada yada yada. I meant James and asaminlooked very real in their scenes together especially their love scenes. Lucas always looked like he had gas and Rafe looked like he was watching for the director to yell cut. All handsome men but I prefer james scott not only in looks but acting ability. Blame the writers for the stupidity. Ho hum

Lisa

Steve and Kayla! I started watching Days because of them and came back to Days because of them. All time favorite super couple! I hope the storylines will be strong and worthy of their special kind of magic again.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem
