Love rules the roost in Salem, and Days of Our Lives (DOOL) is famous for its love stories. Creating such super couple phenomena like Patch and Kayla, Hope and Bo, John and Marlena, as well Chad and Abigail, DOOL fans love watching the romance unravel. Some of the best love stories in the land of Days are the ones that are unexpected, and below are 12 DOOL couples that fans didn’t see coming.
12. Hope Brady and Rafe Hernandez
While it seems like Rafe has been smitten with Hope for years, fans thought she’d never come around. In fact, there was a time where Hope only viewed Rafe as a friend and colleague. First, she had fallen for Aiden, then a returning Bo occupied her thoughts, then she took her time recovering from his death. It seemed like she’d never look at Rafe in that light.
