NBC’s Days of Our Lives has been on fire of late, and at the center of the inferno has been a pair of star-crossed young lovers viewers have been invested in for years, hoping all the while that they might have a chance at one of those happy endings that soap couples rarely enjoy. These two have been through everything imaginable – one was even murdered (on camera) only to be brought back to life (off camera) without any memories of the past by a mad doctor who had developed a serum to cure such annoyances as death, then cared for in a cabin in Nashville by the loony-toons double of the show’s primary villainess. When the young lovers were finally reunited a host of new issues began, including romance with another man, a torrid love triangle, a forced marriage to yet another man with an agenda, and fast-growing inoperable brain cancer (since eradicated) that threatened to keep the lovers apart forever.
