‘Days of our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers have found there’s a LOT going on in Salem right now. We have kidnapped twins, mobsters shooting innocent bystanders, a jailbreak and of course we’re still dealing with Allie Horton’s (Lindsay Arnold) sexual assault.
But there is another storyline brewing that fans may have missed amongst the furor, and it’s a romantic one. No, I’m not talking about Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus)and Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) duking it out for Jake Lambert’s (Brandon Barash) affections.
‘Days of our Lives’ Spoilers: Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) and Nicole Walker (Ariane Zucker): DOOL’s next supercouple?
I’m talking the unassuming blossoming of love between Commissioner Rafe Hernandez and everyone’s favorite not-quite-single-but-it’s-inevitable reformed villainess, Nicole Walker Brady.
These two have already bonded over their love for Allie and are working together to put Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) behind bars for Allie’s rape. Throw in the fact that they are both lonely now that Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) is in the Congo and Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) is off searching for her daughter and you have a perfect recipe for a new coupling.
Well, almost perfect. With Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) on her way back to Salem without her mother Rafe will be prompted to move on, but how will DOOL writers get Nicole to forget about Eric?
That we will have to wait to see, but they’ve started well with Rafe and Nicole’s cute and flirty interactions, including Nicole taking Rafe out to celebrate his birthday.
One surefire way to throw everything on its head is to get Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) involved. Spoliers say Alison’s latest contract will have Sami popping in and out of Salem for the better part of the year.
Surely Sami will pick up on the sparks between ex-husband Rafe and arch nemesis Nicole (who happens to be married to her twin brother). A little Sami meddling might be exactly what’s needed to destroy Eric and Nicole’s marriage. It has to happen eventually.
After all the couple false starts viewers have seen lately, Rafe and Nicole could be the new supercouple Days of our Lives needs. Now here’s hoping Zucker and Gering continue their contracts, so we can get invested in a couple for the long run.
