Fans of Days of Our Lives saw a very juicy development on Thursday’s show, when Will and Paul had sex. The show has been tantalizing fans with the possibility that something might happen between Paul and either Will or Sonny, and now it has. Where do things go from here? Actors Guy Wilson, Freddie, Smith and Christopher Sean dish out some details.
Michael Logan of TV Guide shared the scoop from the DOOL actors via Soap Opera Digest. Freddie Smith, who plays Sonny, says that this is not the way any of them expected the story to go, especially him. He teases a big Days of Our Lives spoiler that when Sonny learns of the fling between Will and Paul, it’s going to be insane. As DOOL spoilers have teased, Friday’s episode brings some key moments, and it will all carry over into the following week.
Christopher Sean, who plays Paul, says that when he learned there may be a romance between Will and Paul, he was blown away and just as shocked as the fans likely are. There has been trouble brewing between Sonny and Will for a while, but this obviously takes the couple to a new and challenging place. Can WilSon recover?
Guy Wilson, who plays Will, says that his character is going to deeply regret giving in to this temptation. As viewers know, Paul doesn’t know that Will is married to Sonny when they sleep together, and he’s in love with Sonny. How will Sonny feel toward Paul when the fling is uncovered? It’s definitely going to be complicated.
Smith notes Days of Our Lives spoilers that the fallout from this dalliance is going to play out for a bit. Viewers will learn more about Sonny and Paul’s original relationship in the months to come, so it sounds as if there are a lot of layers yet to be revealed in this story.
Some are disappointed that Sonny and Will didn’t get the opportunity to stay happy for a longer period of time after their wedding. However, Smith notes, they need to be treated like any other couple, and gay couples, just like straight couples, hit rough patches.
In the episodes to come, fans will see whether Paul actually does come out publicly and whether Will and Sonny can mend their relationship. As She Knows Soaps notes in their Days of Our Lives spoilers, Paul will tell Sonny the truth about his hook-up with Will on the January 12 show and he is still hoping to win his former boyfriend back.
How will it all play out? Fans will have to continue to tune in to Days of Our Lives airing weekdays on NBC to find out.
