This is going to be a December to remember on Days of Our Lives.
Chandler Massey, who played beloved gay character Will Horton from 2010-2014 on the long-running daytime soap, returned to the series to reprise his character—even though Will was killed off three years ago.
Back in September, Will’s former husband Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) was about to marry Paul (Christopher Sean), when the wedding was interrupted with the news of Will’s return. Then viewers got their first glimpse of Will’s return when he appeared in a hallucination to his alcoholic father, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo). Will also got back into bed with Sonny in a dream the night before his wedding to Paul.
Will was eventually reunited with his mother and taken back to Salem. Since he’s been back he has been trying to jog his memory by visiting people from his past—including Paul, who he cheated on Sonny with, and who is now supposed to marry Sonny himself. Confused yet?
On Wednesday’s episode, Will came to visit Paul to get details about their affair, but sparks were immediately ignited between the two when Paul answered the door only in a towel. Will didn’t seem to mind and sat down on the bed, proceeding to inquire about their previous hookup, eventually asking Paul if their sex was good.
Will and Paul leave things wanting to be friends—but not before Will locks lips with Paul in a surprising smooch. Things are getting hot and heavy between the two when it is revealed that Sonny is about to walk in on them.
Will they get caught?
Massey won three consecutive Daytime Emmys for playing Will, and was a part of television history when he portrayed him during the series’ first kiss between two men in 2012. Massey left the series in 2014 and Guy Wilson took over the role. Later that year Will made history again when he married Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) in daytime TV’s first same-sex wedding between two men.
Will Paul and Sonny ever get married or has Will’s return wrecked their happily ever after?
