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 be at the reception and that they will let these two guys have a beautiful service in peace.

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 never thought I’d see the day when a soap had the backbone to tell a real gay love story. Bravo, DAYS, bravo. Keep going!!

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.

I stopped watching Days, ever since the show is without Chandler Massey.

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 !

Jules

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 relationship is still pretty new.

But, since they are going there at this time and I have no say in changing it, I’ll just sit back and enjoy.

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 this amazing event; perhaps one in a lifetime as far as soaps or daytime drama is concerned.

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 one story worth anything. New potential viewers will stay away from DAYS if they take those comments seriously. Days of our Lives is loaded with great characters and storylines, including Will and Sonny!!!

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?

Lori

That was awesome!! Gotta love Days!!

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!

Is it OK if Marlena’s eyes turn yellow?

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.

ann

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 reunite in the future. I don’t watch DAYS but I am glad they are pushing the envelope with Will/Sonny…ATWT (and CBS) certainly wasn’t going to.

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 lovelies are left without…. I LOVE THEM.

Daniel Cosgrove is doing just fine… with Hope… and it was love at first sight for me… when he finally met Kayla… on Fridays eppi

this is potential for SO, TOO good story

—————–

Soapbox: My “Will” is getting married…. I can get married… it’s momentous….

Ta-Da

Horrible! On April’s fools day, ha! I won’t watch. This should have been with Chandler and Freddie. Total mockery without Chandler.

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

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?
