Days of our Lives’ Summer Weddings: Which Bride & Groom Are Headed for Heartache & Tears?
Forget something old, new and borrowed — we want to know who’s going to be blue!
Well-played, Days of our Lives. You got our attention in a big way with that spoiler-stuffed summer promo that teased not one, not two nor even three but four — count ’em, four! — weddings. (If you haven’t seen it yet, feast your eyes below.) Now we can’t sleep nights for wondering which of the would-be husbands and wives will succeed in tying the knot and which will end up becoming, er, dis-engaged.
OK, maybe we don’t wonder too much about Justin and Kayla. Considering that her true love, Steve, watched as she accepted his rival’s proposal and is now running around Salem challenging people not to face-palm right in front of him by spouting nonsense like, “I do love Kayla, and I won’t tell her that because I love her,” there’s nothing to stop that wedding. Not unless Dr. Rolf suddenly comes up with a formula to boost the erstwhile Patch’s IQ.
Eli and Lani also seem like a safe bet to make it all the way down the aisle. They’ve already endured one ceremony that broke the groom’s heart (and nearly stopped grandma Julie’s). And they’ve already dealt with Lani’s concerns about the two of them immediately becoming a mom-and-pop operation. So, short of him realizing that his life was a lot more interesting with Gabi in it, they’re a lock to lock it down.
That leaves Ben and Ciara, and Eric and Nicole. Our initial reasons for being skeptical of a “Cin” marriage at this point are as well-documented as they are well-intentioned. And they’ll soon have the additional threat of Claire crashing their wedding. So we’d put the odds of Ben actually managing to slip a ring on Ciara’s finger at… eh, 50/50 at best.
The same goes for Eric and Nicole. You could argue that, for the love of Swamp Girl, they’ve been through enough. If Eli and Lani have had it bad, Eric and Nicole have had it so. Much. Worse. And for so much longer. They’re overdue to say, “I do.” However, with Sami in attendance at their nuptials — and entirely willing to make a cake wreck of dessert — the happy couple is probably as likely to be sent to the hospital as they are on their honeymoon.
What do you think? Which Days duo do you predict won’t enter into an “altared state” this summer? Vote in the poll below, then explain your reasoning in the comments section underneath.
