According to We Love Soaps, Rafe will tell Hope how much he loves her during Thursday's show.How will Hope react to Rafe's declaration? Surely this will not come entirely as a surprise, but she may well not be ready to reciprocate his feelings. The loss of Bo is still fairly fresh, and it wasn't that long ago that she married Aiden for that matter. However, there are signs that Rafe and Hope's romance may be taking some steps forward, although Days of Our Lives spoilers tease that a shake-up may be on the way with Daniel Cosgrove returning as Aiden Jennings soon.

The latest Days of Our Lives spoilers share that Summer is about to interfere in this relationship yet again by intruding on their date night in some way.Earlier in the week, viewers watched as Abigail made a big move to try to kill Ben for all he has done to her, but Chad intervened before she completed her plan of revenge. Ben has been hospitalized, but Abigail seemed to block out everything that had happened. Days of Our Lives spoilers share that Chad will connect with Rafe during this episode to discuss what has happened. Ben already escaped from the psychiatric facility once, and Chad will surely be anxious to ensure that Ben gets locked up and never is free again.
Abigail may have blocked out the encounter with Ben initially, but Days of Our Lives spoilers note that she will start to have some flashbacks during Thursday's show. All of the drama she has faced as a result of Ben's actions has clearly taken a toll on her mental health, and it sounds as if things may get even worse soon. Fans have suspected that Abigail might have a full nervous breakdown and have to head to a psychiatric facility herself in the coming weeks, and it is certainly looking like that will be the case.Kate Mansi is leaving the role of Abigail very soon, and it has been said that there will be a gap of several months before a recast takes over the role. Days of Our Lives spoilers tease that Abby's father Jack, played by Matthew Ashford, will appear for a few episodes soon, and it sounds as if there are some heartbreaking scenes coming soon. Fans of Chad and Abigail as a couple are sad that there seemingly will not be much time for these two to simply be happily married together before things shift, but there should be some powerful moments on the way.
