Our long national nightmare is over.
After a lengthy “No Homo” decree at Days of Our Lives, in which the Powers-That-Be killed beloved legacy character Will Horton, banished his husband Sonny off-camera to work in Paris, and completely de-gayed their three-way love interest Paul – it looks like things might be looking up for Salem’s gay set.
Sonny’s back from Paris, and recently he and Paul have been making googly eyes at each other and rekindling their old romance. Which is fine, although heterosexual Freddie Smith (who plays Sonny) is about as believable as a bag of potatoes.
Now comes the EUPHORIC news that Chandler Massey is back in the role of Will.
Quick recap: Massey played Will until 2013 (when the bitchy – and ultimately unlikeable – Guy Wilson took over the role). Wilson continued the character’s run until 2015 when Will became the final victim of the Red Necktie Killer.
Before his demise though, Will and Sonny had the first gay wedding featured on the soap, and Will also became involved in a torrid affair with Sonny’s ex-boyfriend, the aforementioned Paul (see bottom photos).
Got all that?
Now word is that Chandler is coming back to the role – meaning Will Horton is coming BACK FROM THE DEAD, in classic soap tradition.
Chandler has apparently been filming for the past month, but because Days is on a six-month delay, Will won’t be seen until September.
In the meantime, let’s sob over these pictures of our long lost Will. SO GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK, HONEYLOVER!
Let’s also take a moment and bask in the beauty of fuck-toy Paul (played to pec-y perfection by Christopher Sean)…
