A Look At ATWT Supercouples – Past and Present!
Katie & Simon were fan favorites! (CBS)
Simon and Katie. Lily and Holden. Bob and Kim. Carly and Jack. They are some of our favorite Oakdale supercouples, but only one – Bob and Kim – are still together! Carly and Jack had a huge break-up beginning last week. Holden has begun divorce proceedings from Lily, and Simon was last seen on a plane to nowhere with Carly.
We thought it would be fun to take a look into the past to relive some of the best times with our favorite supercouples.
But first, what makes up a supercouple? According to the Urban Slang Dictionary a supercouple is a fictional couple who repeatedly overcomes adversity together and reunite. That sums it up for us, too. So let’s get started.
Lily and Holden.
The duo first met when he was a simple stable boy at Lucinda (Lily’s mother) Walsh’s stables. Sparks flew from the very beginning even though Lily was seeing Dusty Donovan at the time. It wasn’t just Holden that Lily was attracted to; she also became very attached to Holden’s close-knit family. There were tough times for the two: Lily learned she was the biological daughter of Holden’s adopted sister, Iva, and ran away from Oakdale for a while.
Dusty and Holden both went looking for her but Dusty found her first. However, Holden was right on her heels and, upon learning Dusty sold her out to John Dixon, Lily left with Holden. This was the first of many trials that separated Lils and Holden throughout the years, but each time they managed to find their way back to one another.
In 2006, Lily found she had a twin sister named Rose. Rose's death hit Lily hard and was another blow to her relationship with Holden. The two managed to reunite, but Holden has never been able to forgive Lily for relying on other people when she is in need. In 2007, he had divorce papers drawn up. Lily slept with Dusty. And it appears that they are once again headed their separate ways.
Lily married: Derek Mason, Damian Grimaldi, Diego Santana and Holden (twice, now!).
Holden married: Emily Stewart, Angel Lange and Lily (twice, now!).
Katie and Simon
Katie and Simon were a short-lived supercouple. They met soon after Katie was fired from her job at WOAK and she fell for Simon very quickly. She was madly in love with him and one night, after having too much to drink, they made love. It was Katie's first time. When she learned that Simon was in danger of having to return to Australia she came up with a plan to keep him in the country - by marrying him!
Knowing that Katie loved him but he didn't love her, Simon balked at the idea. He eventually caved in, though, and they married. Simon did begin to have feelings for Katie but he wasn't good at sharing how he felt; she and Henry headed for the island to recover the diamond that led to Simon's troubles in the first place. The trip was a disaster except for one thing: while she was away, Simon realized he really did love her. He came to the island, declared his love and they renewed their wedding vows.
The end for Simon and Katie was very near, though, because Simon left town to keep Katie safe. While he was away she met and fell for Mike Kasnoff! Simon returned and Katie fell for him again, but things have never been the same for the star-crossed lovers. Since Simon was last seen, Katie has moved on to marry Mike, Henry and even Jack Snyder.
Things may not be over, though, because rumors have begun to circulate that Simon may be planning a return to Oakdale. Will that bring this past supercouple back into the present? We'll have to wait and see!
Katie married: Henry Coleman, Simon Frasier, Mike Kasnoff and Jack Snyder.
Simon married: Monique Farrar and Katie Peretti.
