With Days of our Lives about to celebrate its 50th anniversary in roughly six weeks time, NBC.com is continuing to revisit the key iconic moments, characters, couples and enduring themes of the show through posting video packages each week.

This week, they spotlight one of the things that is most synonymous with DAYS …  Super Couples, and over the decades there have been plenty of them!  In the highlights from the Super Couple clip package: Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso), John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), Patch (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) are front and center.  In addition, there are glimpses of: Jack (Matt Ashford) and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), Kimberly (Patsy Pease) and Shane (Charles Shaughnessy), and Carrie (Christie Clark) and Austin (Patrick Muldoon).

But while those are some very-popular heavy hitters, there have been other favorite duos over the years who have captivated the viewing audience.

For instance: Mickey (John Clarke) and Maggie (Suzanne Rogers), EJ (James Scott) and Sami (Alison Sweeney),  Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes), Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey/Guy Wilson), Eugene (John de Lancie) and Calliope (Arlene Sorkin), Liz (Gloria Loring) and Neil (Joe Gallison), Bill (Edward Mallory) and Laura (Susan Flannery), Tom (MacDonald Carey) and Alice (Frances Reid), and Abe (James Reynolds) and Lexie (Renee Jones).  The list goes on, and on, and on.

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!

I guess the ultimate supercouple, Tom and Alice.

Victor and Maggie’s courtship was great – now they are seldom in the same room at the same time.

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.

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

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!!!

Jen

EJ and Sami! The way he looked at her? Swoon. The way she couldn’t resist him? Squee!

I’ve never considered them a super couple, although they were a couple for years. I’d suggest Mickey and Laura before I’d preference Mickey and Maggie.

Janie

So real? I don’t know of many couples like them. She even shot him! Lol.

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.

Nobody Does Weddings Like DAYS … Get Ready For John and Marlena’s

A Jarlena wedding written by DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati can bring with it several things: delicious drama, fun, love in the air, and dire circumstances!  And from the looks of this just released NBC promo for next week’s episodes of Days of our Lives that is exactly what viewers can expect.

The question is  … through it all, will John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) finally re-tie the knot?

From the teaser, it would seem there are many expected, unexpected, and surprise guests attending the nuptials including: Sami (Alison Sweeney), Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison), and a person whose face is in bandages in a tux!

But as the promo teases, someone will not be going home after the wedding when a gunshot is fired!

Let’s not forget, the last tine Carlivati wrote a series of major episodes for a wedding event – that of the double wedding of Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Marci Miller) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Paul (Christopher Sean) – we all know what happened that time!  Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) showed up at the church just in time to drop the bombshell that Will (Chandler Massey) was alive which put a major clink in Sonny and Paul’s portion of the big day.

So what do you think will go down?  Will Jarlena get to say their “I Do’s”?  Who possibly gets shot?  It’s a not-to-be-missed week of DAYS.  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
