NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers indicate Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) is under pressure. Actually, he’s having the year from Hell and it just keeps getting worse. Recently, we saw him lose it. Following Gabi DiMera’s (Camila Banus) arrest for what she did to Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes), he finally broke. Here’s why he was totally justified.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: First Off
We’ll just make it clear we love Gabi. Camila Banus is a great actress, and she makes us feel for her, even when Gabi is pushing the limits. We’ve already made it clear we think Salem had a lot to do with the monster currently in their midst. We also have pity for her. This is a girl who clearly needs massive amounts of therapy to deal with her issues in a healthier way. That said, we can’t agree with Sonny’s tirade enough.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: The Meltdown
Poor Sonny is really getting stepped on in post-time jump Salem. He lost his mother, his husband, and is possibly involved with a dangerous guy. He was having a hard enough time with Will Horton (Chandler Massey) being in jail from an Ari stand-point. Talk about another resident who needs therapy STAT. But, now he’s facing a conversation with Ari about her mom going away as well. It’s no wonder he lost his cool.
In a great scene Smith rocked, he laid into Gabi for crossing a line, as well as not thinking of their daughter. He berated her for him having to handle things as a single parent and how Ari will feel about her mother’s broken promise. Gabi tried to defend herself, but Sonny wouldn’t cave in his thinking. He also made it clear that Ari could’ve been there at the wedding and seen her mother lose it. Not only that, but Julie, who Ari loves, won’t hesitate to tell Ari all about it. That’s a lot for a poor kid to handle and, as we pointed out, she doesn’t think things through.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Task Ahead
We know Smith is leaving, but we think he’s just getting started as an actor. His scene with Gabi was spot-on, and we expect a lot of the same if we see the reveal to Ari play out. Of course, Gabi is currently trying to get out of her mess through being a bone marrow match for Mickey. We can just imagine how that will impact the relationship between them going forward. Sonny will be happy for Ari if she’s not seeing two parents behind bars at the same time. But he’s also not going to be happy that she’s using a baby’s life to get out of her mess. Could this be something that prompts WilSon’s goodbye? Might they decide being away from Salem, and Gabi, is in her better interest? We’ll have to wait and see.
