SNEAK PEEK: Historic Wedding Of DAYS Will & Sonny!

Next week on Days of our Lives is a historic one for daytime dramas!  That is when for the first time two gay male characters will tie the knot in a heartfelt and important story point for the viewing audience of the longest running scripted television show in NBC history!  The first gay wedding in daytime soaps belongs to All My Children’s lesbian couple of Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Reese (Tamara Braun) back in 2009, and later in 2009 One Life to Live aired its same-sex wedding-athon episode.

Coming up on DAYS, starting on the Tuesday April 1st airshow, and airing over three consecutive episodes, the fan-favorite couple Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) are set to get married in a beautiful ceremony presided by a surprise officiant.

In 2012, Will came to terms with his sexuality in powerful episodes that had audiences around the world captivated and rooting for the character to find love. The slow building romance of the beloved couple has captured the hearts and minds of viewers far and wide culminating in their engagement earlier this year. With great surprises in store and excitement building around this momentous occasion, audiences will be blown away by the powerful performances to come.

Now, after the jump watch a sneak peek of the ceremony as Sami (Alison Sweeney) walks her son Will down the aisle, and Adrienne  (Judi Evans) walks her son Sonny down the aisle.  Then, let us know what did you think of the preview clip?  Will you be tuning into watch the wedding of WilSon?

Maybe not the first daytime gay wedding but Days actually had the first gay character…well, she was married but Sharon told Julie she was in love with her…Julie was straight and politely turned Sharon down…this was back in the 1970s!!! Meanwhile, will Nick interupt the wedding of Will and Sonny…or will there be a twist and this time a wedding on Days will actually happen without the predictable interuption?

I cannot wait! This has been such a special love story. I’m sure I’ll need lots of tissues.

Okay you realize the line about the officiant being a surprise is hilarious considering right below there is a picture of Marlena officiating over the wedding? Not to mentioned the show has already aired the fact Marlena would be the one to marry them. Unless there is a twist we don’t about– then I apologize, but honestly if you mean Marlena — the surprise is already out there. LOL. As for the wedding– looking forward to it. DAYS always has the most entertaining weddings where one never knows what will happen. In this case I hope all the drama will… Read more »

So excited! This has been a wonderful love story and DAYS deserves so much credit for committing to telling it and, with a few minor bumps along the way, telling it so very, very well. It would not have come off half as well if Freddie Smith, Chandler Massey and Guy Wilson were lesser actors. In a few short months, Guy and Freddie have raised the bar to new heights. This is both an old-fashioned romance – the kind that soaps have always told the best – and a modern story of a new kind of celebration of love. I… Read more »

I think there’s will be truly historic since this is the first gay marriage that will be recognized by the state and the federal government. I wish I can have the wedding permanently on my phone or Ipod, to keep as a beautiful reminder of this special occasion.

Guy Wilson has done a phenomenal job as Will, DAYS found a more than suitable replacement for Chandler Massey, who was also great in the role. And Freddie Smith is amazing too. This story has been one of DAYS greatest in a long time.

Sooooo excited! Interesting how this wedding is about true love. Refreshing, particularly when on other soaps (ahem… B&B) there is a wedding-go-around with no regard for the tradition, commitment, and solemnity those moments have… not to mention the turn of plot. Weddings (and babies) should not be just because or done haphazardly.

Beautiful. It demonstrates why we must save our soaps. They have “tackled” some many social issues and need to keep doing so.

Well done Days! Bravo !

Wow, everyone looks so great!!!! Dresses, hair! Fantastic! So proud of DAYS for so many reasons, just add this to the list. While it’s true other soaps have done gay weddings, if you watched what transpired on both, you’d know both were made into farces. THIS is the first REAL and TRUE gay wedding on a soap. If I’m being perfectly honest though, I wish DAYS would have waited with the wedding. Give people more of a chance to fall for Guy Wilson, and for his Will with Sonny. Plus, Adrienne isn’t wrong- they really are young (characters) and their… Read more »

This is the best part of days right now! Sonny (FS) has been consistently terrific, and Guy is doing a good job stepping in at a difficult time. This is the only storyline that has been solid. All the other storylines go up and down. Kudos to Days for taking this step. Look forward to the wedding.

Bravo! DOOL for not being afraid of scripting and airing a beautiful gay love story. I love GW as WH and FS as SK so much. All the other actors are also so good. They all look super amazing. How I wish Luke and Reid (or Luke and Noah) had this; but the EP and writers of ATWT never had the guts and ruined both stories badly. Kyle and Fish had a similar moment on OLTL although it was not their actual wedding; and then they were written off the show. So, Heartiest Congratulations! and Total Salutations to DOOL for… Read more »

A wonderful story, but missing the previous Will. This story has been honestly told with two very good actors. Their story and the actors telling it make some of the other stories in the show laughable. I hope their story continues without a big bunch of melodrama.

DAYS is doing a great job with the Will and Sonny storyline, but I object to anyone’s comments that blast other storylines on DAYS as a way to keep Will and Sonny strong. There are several great storylines in addition to Will and Sonny. All the storylines enhance each other. Don’t make is sound as if only one story is worth watching, because that is not true. For Will and Sonny to stay strong, we need to be united in our love for DAYS! Be careful with your statements about DAYS. We don’t need others thinking that there is only… Read more »

I’ll be watching as I watch Days. Don’t understand the rush to the altar for these two. It’s like they announced they were engaged, then they start planning and all of sudden, it’s tomorrow is the wedding. How was Marlena supposed to have time to get her license to wed or whatever?

Let’s just hope Nick doesn’t come bursting in and some sex tape of Sonny and T gets played and Sami and Adriana have a fist fight over face time in the wedding pictures and Lucas and Justin try to outdo each other in the “Good evening Ladies and Germs” department and everyone starts barfing at the reception over bad oysters.

Let’s hope that none of that happens and we can enjoy a perfect wedding!

I think it’s great and groundbreaking and wonderful that they are marrying…. but Will and Sonny are very boring to me. I just can’t get excited about them because I find them so dull. But again, it’s great that DAYS is going there. I just wish they’d write them a compelling storyline.

I love Will and Sonny. How I wish the EP and HW of ATWT had the guts to have a Luke & Noah Or Luke & Reid wedding (or at least a commitment ceremony) instead of the horrible endings the two SLs were given.

The only ATWT pairing who deserved to be married is/was Luke & Noah. They were the groundbreaking couple who were a part of the show over parts of 4 years and dealt with a lot of (ridiculous) crap and not someone who was on the show for 5 minutes and propped up at the expense of Noah (no surprise since he was never treated fairly). Without Nuke there would not have been Kyle & Fish nor Will & Sonny. Even Van Hansis said Luke & Noah should’ve been together when ATWT ended…married or not…and not have it inferred they would… Read more »

THIS – wedding – “IS” going to be… nothing short of “momentous” a gala affair – a premiere – historic – to be envied —————– SIDEBAR: Kayla ! Kayla ? Hello Kayla : she met Aiden and gushed some? LOL I would be beside myself and then some… if Kayla was to stir, awaken… with spirit… She is the quintessential LOVELY in all of daytime… she is just radiant…. lights up my screen. I thought perhaps… hummm??? is this a possible tryst and trio for: Aiden, Hope, and Kayla let it be, let it be I cannot believe how these… Read more »

They can handle gay lovers, but can’t stomach interracial lovers. Phony & hypocritical comes to mind whenever DOOL is mentioned.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

Photo: JPI

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Victoria Konefal Confirms Her Exit From Days of our Lives

As the rumors circulated they were today proven true.  Victoria Konefal (Ciara) has left Days of our Lives as a full-time cast member with the long-running NBC soap opera.

In a statement to Deadline, Konefal shared: “I cherish every moment I have spent working on Days of Our Lives. It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member. To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

However with that statement, it does appear Konefal has left the door open for her to return as Ciara in a guest-star type of appearance or in a arc of a storyline- time will tell just how that pans out.

Konefal joined the show as the new Ciara Brady back in 2017, and became popular as part of the tortured duo known as “Cin’ along with Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) who’s on-screen nuptials aired this week on the show.

Since Days taped so far ahead of air before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown and has episodes through Mid-October in the can, it would appear Konefal would make her on-screen exit during that time, since she will not be returning to the series, when it begins production again, which is projected to start on September 1st.

Konefal joins the list of departures since the beginning of this year which now include: Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan and Kristian Alfonso.

So, sad to see Victotia exit as Ciara? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
