5 Of The Biggest Days Of Our Lives Betrayals
Now what would a soap opera look like without those juicy storylines that involve a little manipulation and betrayal? Betrayal and trust issues seem to happen more often than not in the land of Salem. Whether it is siblings that have turned on each other, affairs or a really good con, there are countless stories of trust being broken within Days of Our Lives (DOOL) and there simply isn’t enough space on the internet to list them all. Alas, below are five highlights, of the biggest DOOL betrayals over the years.
5. Aiden Tries To Kill Hope
When Aiden originally rolled into town, he seemed like the perfect guy to help Hope get over Bo. He courted her appropriately, they fell in love, and it seemed like Hope was finally going to get the fairy tale ending she so deserved. Except, Aiden wasn’t the prince charming she or anyone else thought him to be. After their wedding in November 2015, which coincidentally coincided with Salem’s bicentennial, Hope thought she would be treated to a romantic wedding night. Turns out, Aiden was hired by Stefano to strangle her. Nothing says betrayal like your new hubby trying to kill you. Thankfully Bo saved the day (or night), and Aiden ended up getting the ax. Sure, ‘good guy’ Aiden has returned, but he still seems sort of shady…Hope better keep her eyes on him.
4. Sami Sleeps With E.J.
While she’s somewhat a heroine on Days now, Sami has a long list of betraying loved ones, especially when it comes to affairs. However, the one that hits this list, was an infidelity that happened in late 2011. When little Johnny goes missing, Sami high-tails it to the DiMera mansion, thinking E.J. was behind the kidnapping. The two see a news clip that the child has passed away and the grief-stricken parents make love. Which may or may not be understandable considering the history these two had at the time. The bigger issue? Sami was very much in love with Rafe (or so she thought) and married to him. Once the affair surfaced, Sami and Rafe divorced and who could blame him? It was hard for Sami to justify an affair with a man she apparently ‘hated.’
