Great news and well deserved. The Sonny/Paul/Will story is the best on Days and on all of daytime in my opinion. Congrats Days and the actors and writers.

That’s about the only award they are going to win in 2015 and 2016. This show is pure and utter crap.

No offense to “crap.” 🙂

@ blake – Totally the best news! The Sonny/Will/Paul storyline is the main reason I keep watching, it’s intriguing, real, honest, and totally deserving of this great award. Congrats to the writers and to the show for committing to these very worthy characters. And, to Freddie, Guy and Christopher, three professional actors who consistently deliver strong performances. What other soap right now, can say that with a very strong LGBT storyline? DAYS all the way. They’re committed to Will & Sonny and Paul. Thanks DAYS for stepping up and depicting challenging and empowering strong male characters who happen to be… Read more »

Days has so “many” reasons to BUILD around… this story line… and has the actors on DAYS are 2nd to none… with GH the potential for stir… emote… build… intrigue box office.. tune IN honestly… Leo.. you are being harsh there are so many fine actors attached to Will… Sonny… Paul and they are ALL bringing their A game… forward for the life of me… disgruntle mode I’m so over ! Daniel, Jennifer… the magic elephant story befuddles me.. where are they going with this? outside of that? I know DAYS is squandering… the potential of the canvas will Stefano… Read more »

@ Patrick – I too, love other characters, the vets are tied to Sonny & Will. Grandma Marlena having a therapy session with Paul and learning of what William did. Classic. Grandma Kate encouraging Will to do whatever it takes to get to Paul’s truth. I love how DAYS utilized them, and I hope we see soon more of Marlena’s gentle coaching and words of wisdom to Will. Especially, since we have Lucas working with Will to dig deeper into Paul and Tori’s history. I would like to see Marlena help balance out Will’s choices moving forward. So, pleased that… Read more »

Glaad to see Freddie Smith in the back seat!

New drinking game: take a sip every time Will says “my husband!” God, if I’d thought of this game sooner, I’d be drunker than Y&R’s Neil, Y&R’s Nicki, and B&B’s Brooke put together!

Nu-Will (yes; I know he’s no longer “new,” but…) unnerves me. I have to fast-forward through his Sami-esque temper tantrums. Will, put on your big boy pants (and donate your cardigans) and take some responsibility for your actions and show some remorse. I think if it were another actor who portrayed Will, I would feel entirely differently. The actor just has never grown on me.

Me too. Always been a huge fan of Will & Sonny as a couple. And I have no problem with Guy Wilson. But I’m all for Paul & Sonny right now. Their past history is sooooo intriguing and the chemistry is off the wall. So PaulSon plz !!!

Guy Wilson lacks charisma. He is blah…he is no Chandler Massey. I just can’t even look at Will….a cheater is a cheater is a cheater. And, he is deceitful…removing his wedding band to boot?
Sonny is so vibrant and gorgeous…he and Paul just fit right.

@ AnneVanH – I too, have always loved Sonny & Will as a couple, and actually ever since Guy took over – he’s one me over, I love his version of Will…sure, it’s definitely a different approach yet, he and Freddie, also Christopher all have great chemistry together.

I’m pleased DAYS is continuing strong with this big storyline, and I hope Grandma Marlena can help Will see the bigger picture of what his future looks like with his husband, and Aria.

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 . #❤️ #😘”
