"Honesty Hour" Is A Real Bust As DAYS Sonny Discovers More Of Will's Lies!

What has happened to the character of Will Horton (Guy Wilson)? Apparently, he has become  very deceitful, desperate, and very troubled as he continues his machinations to try to save his marriage to Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith), but is it too late?

On Monday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, since Sonny and Will are already seeing marriage therapist, Dr. Myers, and have  entered into what has now been known as their “Honesty Hour” when the two take a time-out and talk about their feelings and marriage woes, this latest “hour” was a doozy!

In fact, Sonny lowers the boom that he knows that Will is doing a story for Sonix on Dr. Myers and thus Will is influencing their therapy sessions by writing a features on their egotistical marriage counselor.

Later when things get very heated between them, Will lashes back at Sonny that he can’t live up to the almighty, goody two-shoes husband of his, and that he is made to feel less than.  Sonny then asks Will, if that is why he slept with Paul (Christopher Sean)? Will utters a confirmation of that under his breath! And then more lies are exposed when Sonny figures out that Will must have also slept with someone else while in Los Angeles! Will says, it only happened once.  Sonny is furious and walks out on Will, leaving Will in tears.

What did you think should happen next? Should Sonny divorce Will?  Should Sonny just start a relationship with Paul?  Can “Honesty Hour” be cut to 15 minutes without a lie?  Is there any way that the character of Will can even be redeemed anymore, or do you like his shady ways?  Share your thoughts below!

Honesty hour — indeed, honesty itself — is overrated!

I know that I am going to sound like a “hater” … but, I can no longer stomach Guy Wilson or Will Horton. The actor needs to go and the character needs to leave Salem and jet-set to California to go live with his immature, spoiled, narcissistic mother. I watch Days, and I shake my head the entire hour, or I fast forward. I’m sorry-I know I sound like a “Negative Nellie.”

No, you don’t, dmr. I feel the same way. And, as shallow as this sounds, TPTB could have hired a better looking actor portraying Will. But, after a while one overlooks physical appearance, as long as the acting, the personality, the charisma are prevalent. This guy has nothing. None of those attributes is to be had from Will.

There is no way to really know, but I get the feeling that if TPTB instead had hired the actor who is now playing Derrick to be recast as the new Will, he would have made Will’s antics very watchable, interesting, and perhaps even nuanced. Likewise, the actor now playing Chad could have taken over Will’s role in a compelling way on several different levels simultaneously, making us empathize with Will, rather than being repelled by him.

It’s not just you, it seems most people can’t stand Guy Wilson as Will. If I’m not mistaken his contract is up next month so the show could recast him or he could leave. I know Freddie Smith is leaving as Sonny and they are setting up for that.

Chandler Massey, aside : he was … “that” good Guy Wilson never brought it from the get go even if you had the best writers… I’m sorry to say… as much… wasn’t enticing, as the original pair if his contract is up next month… let go… since, Freddie Smith is leaving… of his own accord I feel strongly… what this duo did… for either recast with a pair with chemistry… or, give Paul… who’s stratosphere all on his own… a dynamic presence he can share, his own dance partner “this story” … being relevant… “I thank you”… audience… NBC /… Read more »

I definitely understand what you are saying and where you are coming from, Patrick. Regardless of the actor, an entire new, and revolutionary phase has entered the soap world. Thus, the storyline is very relevant in today’s society and way of thinking. I can hear the applause miles and miles away. Nonetheless, you are also right in saying that Guy never brought it home for many. Where did they find this guy? His acting is forced….and, he tries too hard; never mind what the writers turned Will into….that is beside the point. We, the fans, are intelligent enough to discern… Read more »

What should happen next? Will should be recast stat. And the character rehauled. I no longer like Will now that Guy is playing him. The actor is awful.

But this is the “perfect” actor to play the role of Will, and that’s why TPTB forced Chandler out early and gave him no going-away party!

I agree 1000%!

If Freddie is still leaving Sonny is obviously going to Splitsville U.S.A.,…im starting to grow tired of the Sonny/Will/Paul triangle…it started off good and was Days best storyline but it feels draggy now…will Sonny run off with Paul or does Paul remain in Salem and falls for Will……also tired of Nicole going back and forth with Daniel and Eric…any chance Nicole prego with Erics child…if Daniel is leaving show as rumored i see Nicole and Eric back together…itll probably be the reason Daniel leaves…maybe he goes back to Clhoe(spelling?)

even with knowing… that Freddie Smith is leaving… hasn’t lessened my viewing of this trio but… the glaring… fact Guy Wilson will not bring it to the audience… with his own acting I don’t see Will and Paul… hooking up… for anything I don’t know… it’s angst time for me… that DOOL production would have to recast both Will and Sonny… in light of SCOTUS … LOL… smiling from ear to ear i can let go of … and not wrangle how much this pair meant to me that .. this story simply be recast with Paul and a new… Read more »

ps: I so hope.. the rumor is true… that Daniel is so bereft… and sees how dull he truly is

and reunites with Chloe w/Parker… and LEAVES Salem

now!

the show.. with no focus… simply has got to marquee a solid acting force… a leading cast of characters who need never have had Daniel whatsoever

I have a big problem with this plot point. No matter if you love Will or hate him he showed remorse when he cheated with Paul. When he came back from LA the only thing he hid was getting fired from the movie project. He told Kate he never cheated in LA and said to before Paul he’d only been with one guy. Why didn’t we see Will struggle with this secret before Paul? Sonny isn’t completely innocent either. He claims he wants his marriage to work but secretly meeting up with and daydreaming about the man who wants him… Read more »

God, Will is a whore!!! Geez, bad representation of gay marriage. I understand the need for drama, but Guy Wilson is not selling this. Chandler prolly couldve in a way that u felt SOME empathy!! Sami needs to come slap some sense into him! At least Sami did these kinds of things they made more sense. Will has had no reason to cheat on Sonny aside from his animalistic lust!!!

The character of Will is unrecognizable at this time.In the past Will would never hurt Sonny like he recently has.Will doesn’t even seem to recognize the impact his actions have had on his husband and their marriage. Will needs to do some major south searching and get some therapy to understand what has allowed him to tell himself that betraying Sonny and then lying about it was alright!

I am so torn over this. Not to beat a dead horse, but when Will was played by Chandler Massey, Will could pull off doing something ‘wrong’ and still maintain the sympathy of the audience – and let’s face it, outside of trying to blackmail EJ and lashing out at his mother and sleeping with Gaby (all somewhat understandable ‘wrong’ actions), he was a pretty good guy. And I was glad to see a strong, loving, healthy relationship between two men on daytime. That being said, I understood and actually hoped that in time, they would get to be a… Read more »

Excellent post!
I will say, though, that Jen Lilley is such an excellent actress that she somehow makes Theresa sympathetic…even WITH the writing she’s given. Yes, I hate her sometime,s and don’t like the things she does, but I still want her to get what she wants in the end.

Thak you, Mike.
I have been saying this litany since nuWill set foot on the DAYS stage. Guy is the most insipid actor on TV.
Furthermore, to echo what Sally said about Theresa; I have been praising Jen’s acting as well. However, I am somewhat miffed that the rein holders are continuing to portray her as a baddie.

Maybe you blinked because he was on for like 6 seconds. He met Paul in the fake leaf park and said that he was no longer working for the Hotel as a Bell boy because he “wasn’t good at it”. How difficult could it be to be a bell boy? Is it the equivalent of being a Brain surgeon? Also, what the heck kind of contract does the actor who plays Derrick have? He was gone for weeks or months and all of a sudden he shows up in the fake leaf park where no one’s hair is ever blown… Read more »

Fake leaf park lmao! Yeah I guess since that stupid Nicole and Serena story ended and Paul’s hotel room being a revolving door they decided to not focus on the hotel. And yeah being a bell boy can’t be hard work, he’s just always going to be eye candy no matter where he works lol.

They could at LEAST build a “lake set” couldn’t they? Salem can’t really be too thrilling a town to visit – you have a choice of hanging out at the Fake leaf Park, the hospital or Brady’s pub with the same mini curtains they’ve had since 1923. Of course, if you’re desperate you could always visit Eve in her crappy apartment – or “bump into” someone at the exciting Square. Actors are constantly “bumping into” each other and dropping folders, hidden papers, secret elephants, pregnancy test kits, etc. It’s SO corny and SOO overdone – but I guess they can’t… Read more »

FS is leaving and it doesn’t look like they are recasting the role so I don’t see how PaulSon relationship is possible. The show decided to waste the last few months by having Sonny stand around letting Will keep lying and manipulate him instead of taking any kind of action. I guess Ken Corday did really mean it when he said they don’t write for characters/actors that are leaving. SMH It would be nice to see the show at least give us one PaulSon hot sexy action where all the build and tension is released before Sonny leaves though. I… Read more »

You said it , Alex. Your every word is true. Well stated. I especially appreciate your declaration that Sonny was simply used as a prop for Will. Just like his mother, Sami. Everything revolved around her. TPTB did the same to Rafe. He was Sami’s prop. A great actor with so much potential…I’m not even quite sure what his purpose on the show is….what the blank are ‘they’ doing?

Well I don’t like the fact they have turned Will into the male version of Sami. The Will Horton I remember seeing on screen for years, hated his mother’s behavior, the lies and the cheating that he never wanted to be like her– and now the writers have made him just like her— except in a man, even a gay man, it doesn’t come across as devious like it did with Sami, it just seems rather pathetic. I know the actor isn’t my favorite but even if CM was still playing him, it would be totally out of character for… Read more »

If this gives Will any character.. so be it.. at least this would be a let, out learn from your mistakes this early on.. and give the writers and audience a let.. and either recast the pair.. or give Paul a new leading man if… Read more »

Ahhh, Chandler…what a hottie!! Right, a Patrick? I think Will should be recast. We do not want to jump the gun and completely eliminate the youngest male carrying on the Horton name. At least, I think he’s the youngest. Perhaps, when Sonny leaves, Will should go with him. In the interim, a replacement will return. But, out of context,….I was watching episodes of REMINGTON STEELE on ME-TV (Boston), when I saw a hint of someone very familiar. It was James Reed (Clyde). WOW !!!!! My gosh he was so good-looking. Can’t believe he changed so much. Usually, people do not… Read more »

Will no longer knows how to tell the truth. If Ari wasn’t in the picture I’d tell Sonny to run now, run fast and don’t ever look back. But she is so I think they need to separate and slowly Sonny will leave.

I’m sad to see how they have changed the character of Will 🙁 I loved the ‘WilSon’ love story and understand there would be rough times, but all of these lies…I don’t think there is any coming back from that.

When Will said “it only happened once” when Sonny accused him of cheating in LA I thought he was referring to his ONS with Paul. But it does sound like he may have hooked up with someone else before Paul. Sad that the writers decided to destroy the WilSon relationship by resorting to the predictable “infidelity” storyline rather than creating a more original plot device such as a life threatening illness or a mysterious disappearance where one of the guys could have ended up missing and the other could have went on a search and rescue mission to save their… Read more »

Sonny can’t trust Will anymore so he will leave Salem and start a new life. He is such a good guy.Sure will miss him but he deserves better than Will. Will needs to grow up and guilt being so decieving.Sonny tries to talk to him but he does not listen.I felt so sorry for Sonny when he found out Will cheated on him while he was in L.A.

Oh, I know, Patrick, I know, how you feel. My husband was my only boyfriend (I was sixteen) . I do not believe in infidelity either….So, if he ever cheated on me, I would be devastated.
Poor Sonny! The writers are trying to patch this marriage up. Now, I’m all for trying to give it another try for this couple ( I, personally would never forgive him), but Will is too flighty and untrustworthy. It is not fair to Sonny. On the other hand, I love Paul.
Sonny is leaving….what then?

Knowing Freddie is going to be gone soon, I can’t get into this story as much as before and the utter lack of chemistry between current Will and Sonny isn’t helping (the touching between the two is just mechanical and not natural). The debate is on whether Will admitted he cheated in LA or only with Paul ( I’m thinking the former not the latter). Turning Will into manipulative insecure weasel also isn’t a positive. All that is left is sitting back and seeing what causes Sonny to finally leave for good. With the current version of Will, not surprised… Read more »

It sounded in one scene that Sonny was making excuses for Will “not really being ready for marriage” but it seemed to me that the subliminal message was that Sonny was looking for an “out” so that he could be with Paul. It just seemed to my ears that he was actually letting Will down easily. Hate to say it but it’s possible that maybe the days of Sonny and Will may be nearing an end, I mean I hope that’s not the case but we know the actor who currently portrays Sonny is leaving and Guy’s contract may or… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
