Days Of Our Lives

EW.com learns "DAYS may have Gay storyline in the works!"

Could it finally be that one of the last soaps you would ever think would incorporate a gay storyline into their story canvas, may be ready to do so?  Well according to EW.com tonight it just may be so for NBC’s longest running scripted television program, Days of our Lives.  EW reveals, “We have learned exclusively that a gay storyline may be in the works! From what we gather, it may involve a current cast member hooking up with someone new. ”

EW also states a Days of our Lives spokeswoman declined to comment on the situation. But let’s look at this for a second. Many fans have been lobbying for a same-sex relationship between the characters of Will (Chandler Massey) and Chad (Casey Deidrick), but also there is speculation that a gay storyline could involve the newest addition to the Hernandez family, Dario (Francisco San Martin).  Or, could it be none of the gents above?

If DAYS was to launch a gay love story, what existing character on the canvas would you like to see involved in this story? Tell us here.

Please Days, let it be Chad and Will! Fans have been wanting those two for so long, not to mention the fact that Casey and Chandler have proven to be adequate in the chemistry department. Not some new guy Days, CHAD AND WILL. I don’t want summer hotness, I want summer CHILL!

I would love for the first gay s/l to be with Chad and Will. Those two guys have so much chemistry together. They are on the same level as EJami to me and that’s saying a lot! Every time they’re in a scene together they light each other up and I don’t even see anyone else in the scene. Another DiMera/Brady “forbidden love” is gold and this time tptb could do the story that EJami were meant for right from the beginning. I hope tptb don’t waste this opportunity. It’s the second time a story like this with actors who have electric chemistry has fallen into their laps.

CHILL FTW!!!!

The actor playing Dario is a non-starter, can’t see him having chemistry with anyone. Hope they don’t use Will & Chad. While these actors work very well together I can only see this storyline tanking and destroying the charcters future with the show.

I sincerely hope that there will NOT be a gay storyline on DOOL or any other American soap. I say this definitely not out of homophobia but beacuse it is a well known fact that gay characters are never ever given a happy ending on any American soap or show. QAF separated Brian and Justin in the end. ATWT killed of Reid, left Luke to a life of pain, suffering, and misery; and reduced Noah to a no show, while giving every straight charcater and couple a happy ending. OLTL made Kyle and Oliver disappear unceremonoiusly. In the end die hard and loyal fans and viewers are shown no respect or consideration by the TPTB of these shows; the fans are left devastated. I was completely shattered by the horrendous LURE ending that was written by JP and her sadistic team, and auhtorized to air by CG of ATWT. It was like fattening a calf before leading it to its merciless slaughter. I am sure millions of soap viewers and fans feel that homophobia is very much prevalent amongst the writers, producers, and TPTB of American shows and soaps. So, it is better not to have something or someone, rather have it, and then snatched away ruthlessly. After the horrible ending of the beautiful LURE story on ATWT, I have vowed never to watch any American soap. But, if DOOL has the guts to show a nice gay storyline culminating in a happy ending, good luck to the viewers and fans of DOOL.

I agree with most of what you said.The last straw for me was the way they ended ATWT and destroyed Luke and Reid.That was truly my favorite story of all time .I loved the characters of Luke and Reid and adored Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens.If they were cruelly destroyed,Reid being killed and Luke grieving for the love of his life, i don’t have much hope for any gay storylines.Because to me this was the best of the best.Some people want to be like an Ostrich and bury their head in the sand! So sad !!!!

The Olivia and Natalia story line ended happily on GL. Except for having to accomodate Jessica Leccia’s maternity leave, the storyline was very well put together and very moving. They wound up together with a supportive blended family and supportive community. However, I think the biggest problem with having gay/lesbian story lines on American soaps is that they’re not allowed to show much affection. They get just a couple of kisses and a ton of longing looks, hand holding and hugs. Meanwhile the straight couples are humping like rabbits in scenes that are one bed sheet away from soft core porn. If they’re gonna try a gay/lesbian storyline, then have the courage to get out of medieval courtly love simpering and don’t fall into the Well of Lonliness. It’s 2011!

Days already has a same sex pairing with sexual chemistry in Chad and Will. Those two would be the best choice for a romance as the foundation has already been set. They are frenemies who sparkle in scenes together.

The fact that a Chill pairing would instigate another Horton/Dimera drama would be icing on the cake. There is a lot of story that could be had from this pairing. Much more story than pairing them up with anyone else currently on the canvas.

At this point Days is creatively dead. A Chill pairing would get them press and possibly reinvigorate the show.

I feel like a same-sex coupling on DAYS could be a real head-turner.

I feel like what went wrong with ATWT’s Luke is that they wrote themselves into a big storm of publicity and then wrote themselves into a corner to which they couldn’t back out of. And OLTL had the perfect opportunity to succeed but didn’t roll with it as they probably felt they didn’t wish to ruin KISH.

As for Y&R, they let me down. I felt like out of all the soap operas, they could’ve handled it well but just insulted it. Phillip is a gay male yet has no partner, and that Adam/Rafe storyline was just plain insulting.

AMC has ruined Bianca and her pairing with Reese, though they are making it in true soap opera fashion so I have to give them thumbs up for not treating it as a “special” situation, they’re making it a true soap romance type of thing.

DAYS has the power to make a completly successful, long lasting soap romance between Will and Chad, and maybe even Dario. I hope they go with it.

And PS: DAYS needs to move to like 2PM EST so I can DVR it in HD. I’m tired of watching soapnet for it, and soon won’t even have that. :-/

Rafe2 & Daniel! Daniel & Bo!!! BRADY BLACK and PHILLIP KIRIAKAS- please, please, please. (Alas, it would be short lived since Jay is leaving the show. But, after falling into a lustfilled night in Brady’s arms, and a subsequnt short lived romance, Phillip could leave town in a panic, leaving BRADY BLACK to find romance with EJ!!) Rafe 1 and EJ! Of course, Will (but I wish he could be played by the previous actor who played the role) and Chad. All kidding aside, this could be a wonderful story oppotunity- OF COURSE, Stefano, and probably EJ would be homophobic, and cause lots of pain and consternation for the new homo DiMera. The tension could split the guys up, and of course in true soap opera fashion, during a night of drunken heartbreak- Chad could end up with Darius- and begin soap’s first GAY Triangle love story. Other possibilites- Stefano & Victor! BRADY BLACK and any other hot guy that’s ever been in Salem- past, present, and future! Abe & Stefano! Gus & Lucas (back from Europe)! Did I mention BRADY BLACK & EJ? BRADY BLACK & Rafe 1 & Rafe 2- another Salem Gay Traingle!- And the most scandalas possibity- certain to cause dissention and protests from clone advocates worldwide- RAFE 1 and RAFE 2!!!!! OMG- think of the possiblities! Could give new meaning to the phrase ‘go #!##!.yourself!” Seriously- I LOVE Days- inspite of the fact that it’s producers (Corday, etc) are notoriously homophobic, and have been for decades. I will never forget- years ago, I was a very young boy, watching Days with my mom, when Julie (now known as Hope’s sister , Doug’s wife) had a female “friend”. I remember I watched with silent intrigue as this “female friend” made clear overtures towards a married Julie Williams. For a few episodes, Julie seemed to take this flirtation in stride, and young as I was, I remember being in awe and very intrigued. Of course, I couldn’t identify why I felt so mesmerized by this storyline- but I was less than ten years old, and very, very interested in the turnout of this plot line. Unbeknowest to my young self, the network and/or the Corday production team got cold feet midstream. I will never, ever forget how I my young, unvoiced gay self felt when I tuned in the following week, to find Julie’s “lesbian” friend turned into a psycotic, unstable mess who spent an episode STALKING a quickly appalled and unsympathetic Julie Williams. It was so long ago, and I may have gotten some details incorrect. However, i will never forget the implicit message that Corday and company offered my young, impressionale, very gay self- that being gay and expressing your true feelings was wrong, undesireable, and even criminal. (If memory serves correctly, Julie’s paramour was carted off, albeit hysterically, by Salem’s police force.) I wonder if the producers during that time ever reallized the harm and pain they contributed by perpetuating such a negative image… Read more »

Unfotunately Michael, times haven’t changed and homphobia is very much prevalent in society and even more so on American soaps and shows. Did you see how QAF, ATWT, and OLTL treated the gay characters. I have never seen a happy ending for a gay character. And, this trend will most likely continue.

NOOOOO gay storyline needed. REALLY. Enhance tradition and develop a strong consistent family, marital and single heterosexual relationships. Remember the Soaps are fantasy with a touch of reality.

I am a believer in tradition and traditional families, but having said that this is not the world we live in today.Love comes in all kinds of packages .I think it would be a mistake for people to pretend that gay love does not exist.Any relationship that has respect and love for one another has to be acknowleged! The families of today are not the traditional families of years ago.And what is a family anymore?There are so many divorces, babies without Fathers supporting them,neglect, abuse, etc.A loving , committed, monagamous,relationship makes a REALfamily.That’s just the way it is.And no , I’m not gay.I’m straight, married, with three children,, none who are gay!

none thank you… being a heterosexual older women, just would not add to my enjoyment of the show…sorry that is how it is..

Being a gay older woman, the straight storylines do not add to my enjoyment of the show…sorry, that’s how it is !

So why do you watch in the first place? The intellectually stimulating storylines? What is really needed is more soap operas for gays and lesbians on network TV not through web subscriptions. That way you can tune in to something that turns you on and not be turned off by the straight people leaping into bed. Now if we are talking prime time shows that have nothing to do with leaping in bed, well bring on all the gay characters you want. I’m perfectly fine with homosexuality. I have relatives and friends who are gay, I just don’t want to watch them have sex and I should think they feel the same about heterosexuals, unless . . . they are bi : )

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
