Days Of Our Lives fans are divided about Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) and Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso). Some love the two as a couple, while others think they are a mismatch or don’t have much chemistry. Recently, executive producer Ken Corday teased what the future holds for the couple known as “Rope.” Will there be a wedding in Rafe and Hope’s future, or are the two not meant to be together?
DOOL spoilers are ahead. Do not continue reading unless you want to know what is coming up on the NBC soap opera.
Rafe Hernandez’s feelings for Hope Brady began around the time she thought she killed Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo). After going to prison, Rafe did everything in his power to set her free. After it was discovered that Stefano was actually alive and she was released, they were finally able to focus on their relationship.
Soap opera fans definitely have their favorite couples and Days Of Our Lives is no exception. Even though Bo Brady is dead, some viewers just can’t imagine Hope with anyone else. However, Hope has been with Rafe for over a year now. They don’t seem to have the conflict or tension that other couples have, so it seems like they may stay together. So, what is in their future this summer? In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, Ken Corday revealed that things are going to get more serious between the two.
Expect Rafe and Hope to begin talking about marriage. However, there are some things that will get in the way of their wedding plans. The executive producer didn’t reveal what those issues would be. However, fans are thinking it must have something to do with the big murder mystery that is coming up in the next few months.
“Hope and Rafe discuss marriage but then bigger issues come into play.”
Another situation that could get in the way of Rafe and Hope’s romantic future is Deimos Kiriakis (Vincent Irizarry). Corday revealed that the two detectives would be dealing with the Halo epidemic. One day, they start looking at Deimos as a person of interest in the case.
There is also the possibility that Rafe’s family will occupy his thoughts. As Days Of Our Lives fans know, Dario Hernandez (Jordi Vilasuso) is being threatened with deportation. Abigail (Marci Miller) has agreed to marry him so he can stay in the country. However, will Dario and Abigail’s plan work? DOOL spoilers tease that Abigail is going to find out just how much she will have to do in the fake marriage. There is also the issue of how Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) will take the news if Abby even tells him the whole truth. Chad is not Dario’s biggest fan and doesn’t want him anywhere near Abigail or baby Thomas.
It is too early to predict what Hope will be going through this summer. She didn’t seem too emotional about her daughter Ciara Brady (Vivian Jovanni) leaving Salem, which was odd. TV Fanatic mentioned it was disappointing to see Hope take the credit for JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) and Lani Price (Sal Stowers) tracking down Deimos. It was surprising to see her brag about it to Rafe and was definitely out of character for her.
Lately, there seems to be a lot of missing storylines, like Rafe and Hope’s romance. With Ron Carlivati as the new head writer, DOOL fans are hoping he will bring some love to Salem. As for Rafe and Hope’s future together, fans will just have to wait and see what happens.
What do you think of Rafe and Hope discussing marriage on Days Of Our Lives? Are you hoping they tie the knot or are you not convinced they belong together? What kind of issues will prevent them from moving forward with their wedding plans?
