The couple who were married in daytime TV’s first same-sex wedding between two men are back together. Well, almost.
In the ever confusing—but addicting!—drama of beloved gay character, Will Horton (Chandler Massey), on Days of Our Lives, Will has rekindled his romance with Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith), who was his husband before Will lost his memory after he came back from the dead.
Massey, who played Will from 2010-2014 on the long-running daytime soap, returned to the series in 2017 to reprise his character—even though Will was killed off three years prior.
In September 2017, Will’s former husband Sonny was about to marry Paul (Christopher Sean), when the wedding was interrupted with the news of Will being alive. 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 revealed to have lost his memory, but 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.
Eventually Paul and Will ended up as Salem’s newest power couple, but in a new episode of DOOL, while preparing for his grandmother’s wedding, all of Will’s memories came back to him, including his wedding day. He then rekindled his romance with Sonny, and the two shared a passionate kiss.
But what about Paul?! There’s never a shortage of drama in Salem. Watch Will and Sonny’s kiss in the clip below.
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 in daytime TV’s first same-sex wedding between two men.
