Love the sexual tension between him and Hope!.. i hope the ptb tease the viewers with some flirtations between the bad boy lawyer and the good girl cop going rogue! The show messed up her amazing sexual chemistry she shared with Aiden by turning him evil to give her and Rafe rooting power. But Hope and Rafe is Hope/Bo 2.0 and can never be duplicated. With all the stress Hope is under she needs to give in to her wild side and Ted is the man to help her. Kristian and Giles would be so much fun together and having Hope come undone would be great for viewers! Hope vs Kate, Ted vs Rafe, Hope and Ted vs Salem…Hope and Ted vs Ciara and Ben! they could be the next #Cin!!!
Giles is a breath of fresh air, and days continues to be on a hot streak. ..

LOL, Damien…great to see your name, here…
Hope is not ‘a good girl’ cop—-rather a matron….However, Hope has a few crimes hidden behind that ‘pure’ facade.
But, I do agree with your “hope-full” suggestion to put Hope and Ted “in bed”….anyone other than Rafe will do. The most mis-matched couple on soaps–well, then there’s Gina ( Phyllis) and Joshua ( Nick); Y&R…..
Oh, and why does Ciera call Julie “Grandma”? Julie is her AUNT… ..being married to Doug does not make her Ciera’s grandmother. Her grandmother was Addie; Hope’s and Julie’s mother. My own grandmother said that Julie married her stepfather, Doug. Tsk, Tsk….LOL.
Julie should not throw shade on anyone; considering her own sordid past.

He’s a very sexy man and a good actor. I’m glad he’s back on Days and on contract this time! Glad he’s mixed in with Hope and Rafe, shaking them up.

I love this actor, but not in this sleezy kind of role. I liked him on Brothers and Sisters and Switched At Birth. There is a chemical attraction between he and Hope, but being the kind of person he is, I can’t see anything happening. Being realistic here, with Rafe being the guy he is, it would be like giving up Santa for the Grinch! I think that all Ted has going for him, is his looks.

Speaking for myself I cannot stand Ted.

Lauren K.(Kate) could had been a recast Samantha in that Sex In The City movie they were planning to do but the actress who originally played the part refused to do it so the movie was canned…Lauren looks enough like the other actress and would had made a perfect recast!!!
