DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Aiden Returns Just as Hope & Rafe Get Closer! Is An Aiden Doppelganger The One Who Tried To Kill His Bride?

Monday May 9th will be a big episode day on all of your favorite soaps, as the all-important May Sweeps ratings period heats up!

Days of our Lives is set to tell two big stories, one of which has the highly-anticipated on-screen return of Daniel Cosgrove in the role of Aiden Jennings, or is it really Aiden who returns?

Previously, Cosgrove and his then on-screen love interest, Kristian Alfonso  (Hope) became very popular with the fans and were known on social media as “Haiden”.  When Cosgrove’s Aiden was “killed” in a face-off with Hope’s former husband, Bo Brady (Peter Reckell), many fans were very upset,  while on-screen Hope and the town of Salem thought he was a-goner.

As viewers recall, after being blackmailed by Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) because of his huge financial debt, Aiden planned on killing his new wife Hope just after they were married … by strangling her.  Now, DAYS fans saw on the Friday, May 6th episode of the NBC sudser that Aiden shocked Hope by being in her home and telling her he is alive!  The action picks-up Monday in a full-episode centered on the night that Aiden tried to kill Hope, where he tells his wife that he coudln’t go through with killing her, and that when he tried to flee Hope’s house he came face to face with his doppelganger.  Aiden will reveal that Andre was behind the plan, but could the man calling himself “Aiden” be the doppelganger?

Watch the latest promo for Days of our Lives after the jump!  Let us know: Are you glad that Daniel Cosgrove is back, which will certainly throw a wrench into the Hope and Rafe romance?  Do you hate or love the idea of another possible doppelganger story on DAYS about to be unleashed?

I hope he is telling the truth. I liked Hope with Aiden.I am not thrilled with Hope and Rafe. I don’t hate Rafe, just find him someone else. I liked him with Sammy. Danial Cosgrove can act, and with K A the stage lights up. two talented actors make the stories real. welcome back. I will be watching.

OMG Hope and Aiden totally are Hot together. Aiden just needs to prove to Hope he can be trusted and I see her falling for him. I think she is trying to convince herself she should be with Rafe when she loves Aiden. these 2 have Undeniable chemistry. HAIDEN Forever!!

I love that they have brought back Daniel Cosgrove. He is handsome and talented. Perfect leading man. If Aiden were to reunite with Hope..great. If not, that’s fine too. He can be paired with a broomstick and still have chemistry. He doesn’t have to be tied to Hope. Hope and Rafe are just nauseating. Don’t like them whether Aiden in the mix or not. They look so awkward and the actors just don’t seem into it. Happy Daniel Cosgrove is back!

Totally happy that Daniel Cosgrove is back!!! He was really undervalued on Days before and I hope they don’t make the same mistake again. He is a leading man and Days should take advantage of that. Hope or no Hope, Aiden is a star in Salem and will be great with whomever he is paired with. Days is very lucky that he agreed to come back. He is a fan favorite and they better not waste a good thing. The show needs viewers tuning in to see great performances and chemistry between couples. Rafe and Hope are not doing it.

I don’t mind the actor coming back and the show undoing Aiden being a madman who would try to kill his wife– but honestly who cares. The show has all but destroyed the character of Hope for me when after Aiden was killed off the first time. She barely had time to process his death when she reunited with Bo, then Bo dies. And although she was only with Bo for like a minute we are supposed to believe she was so upset by his death that she would murdered Stefano in the heat of the moment. Okay maybe that,… Read more »

I agree with that. Hope has changed for the worse. In some ways, she is worse than Aiden. She killed someone, covered up the murder and then framed Andre. It doesn’t matter why she did it- the writers can’t fix that with a doppelganger. Her relationship with Rafe is not believable either. One minute they’re friends and the next , she is in love with him and wanting to sleep with him. That’s not the Hope I know. The writers have shown no respect for that character and it was all done so Rafe could look better. Hope waited almost… Read more »

what a position for Daniel Cosgrove “Aiden” to be in

he has chemistry…. with two of Days leading characters… Hope and Kayla

YUM

why not revisit with Kayla… if Hope turns him down… or he bides his time and gets to know Kayla

I think the fans would eat this up…

just saying… because of how electric the dynamic , are

lining up for this show

I think Daniel Cosgrove is brought back to “salvage” and/or TURN ( in a good way ) what this show needs Kristian Alfonso… is never better… when in love and romance is in her life whew! which is so fine… by me… as we get… one of the “BEST” leading men currently…. he’s dreamy… I mean really I couldn’t believe it… when… in – ONE – room… at the Salem P.D… there’d Aiden, Justin, and Rafe… swoon OK… invite me I’ve posted before… I’d be nutted up… if I had Lost two husbands that quickly… especially when it was so… Read more »

I forgot to add… I wonder if Roman, Hope, and Rafe… every discuss their “dirty cop” deeds

here’s hoping that Andre is back in full swing soon… as he brings FUN back to the canvas

it’s some DiMera at the very least

i’m a month behind… dang! I got lost in the dark

I’m thrilled Aiden is back. Didn’t like how the writers left it where everyone believed him to be a monster when he was only trying to protect his son’s life. Any parent would understand that, I think. Now his character can be exonerated. I loved him with Hope. Took a while but I’m starting to like Rafe with Hope now too. She’s been through way too much to start any kind of romantic relationship with anyone. Bo has only been dead for about 6 months. She grieved much longer when he was presumed dead. Would have liked if they had… Read more »

VERY excited to see Aiden /Daniel Cosgrove again! He is a fantastic, subtle, emotional actor and Kristian really does her best work around him. They just have a connection on screen that is rare. Galen and Kristian don’t bring out passion in each other. Rafe should be with a younger character so he can have kids. Hope and Aiden are much better suited for one another.

Fatima Mamun

Except for Jordan, every woman they have given Rafe is someone else’s LOL. Rafe was mooning over Hope when she was with Aiden and that made him look desperate and kind of perverted. There is something wrong with Rafe in general. None of the women he’s had have worked. Sami was the closest thing to being ok that he’s had. I wish Days would stop trying to force him together with women that most fans want to see with someone else. It doesn’t help him or the show. I don’t see passion in any Rafe and Hope scenes either. Rafe… Read more »

Personally I liked Rafe with Carrie. The union didn’t last long but I thought she was best suited for him. There was also a half minute there I thought Rafe might be good with Nicole— speaking of which, they used to best buds but I don’t even recall Rafe making an condolence call to her when Daniel died–oh well, things change I guess.

I’ve always said… Hope and Rafe are not… equals… if you will Carrie Brady, outside of Sami… was Rafe best bet TILL Dena Higley… if it’s true… she’s in love with Rafe’alicious… is better off just pairing Rafe back with Kate… till Dena hires a new love interest for Rafe as Kate is not being true to herself… and bedding DOWN with Deimos… course i’m a month behind… so who knows what kate is doing I mean really… If I was Kate and saw Deimos swooning over Nicole.. I’d dump him… and with Aiden back in town I see a… Read more »

That’s an interesting comment about the character of Rafe. He’s nice, he’s likeable enough, but I tend to agree with the comment that he’s not terribly dynamic for some reason. But, I’ll take any storyline that doesn’t center around the same old same old re-hashed mush between Steve (“Patch”) and Kayla – please, cannot take anymore.

It would have been so much more believable if they had just chalked up the last 6 months or so as one of Abby’s hallucinations. Then they could have cherry picked what was real & what was not & made Abby’s instability even more frightening than it already is because if she’s literally been in her own head all this time….

But no…They went for the tired…I mean tried & true.

Did I mention above that I HATE doppelganger SL’s???

Yeah, I did. And I do.

Love, Love, Love that Daniel Cosgrove is back! This means I’m coming back too. I was angry with the way they destroyed Aiden and killed him off. Stopped watching after that. I will give Days a chance to redeem themselves with a good story for Aiden and redemption for him too. I really don’t care if he ends up with Hope. I actually think he needs someone younger like Nicole or Chloe. As for Hope and Rafe, KA is just GG’s next victim. He’s never had a successful pairing (somewhat Sami but EJ won) as long as he’s been on… Read more »

WHAT!!? An EVIL twin on a Soap Opera? I must say, this show is extremely
innovative, I’ve never heard of such a thing!
I DO like the actor since his days on AMC but the storyline sounds, if you don’t mind me wording it simplistically, stupid.

Sorry but I and my whole Family and Friends, are a Rafe Fan!!! We All Love Rafe Here, He is Handsome and True and Will do Anything for the Woman He Loves!!! Please Give Rafe a Chance, He is the One for Hope and Ciara. They make a Beautiful Family. Ciara will never feel for Aiden, the way she feels for Rafe, plus the fear and hatred she feels for Chase. It will be shown that Aiden, is hiding and plotting things again, with Andre, and now wants Rafe dead. Get rid of Aiden, and Chase. Days was just getting… Read more »

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
