“Days of Our Lives” (DOOL) spoilers reveal that exciting drama is in the works, but it’s always nice to take a look back at the gripping moments of the past. We’ve had to endure many heartbreaking deaths over the years. It’s tough to say goodbye to our favorite characters, but it’s even tougher to watch their great loves say their final farewells.
Let’s consider some couples that that were torn apart in the worst way possible.
Sami and EJ
When EJ’s (James Scott) demise was drawing near, we could all tell it was coming. The creepy music swelled as EJ shared his last family hugs. EJ headed off to confront Clyde (James Read) in what DOOL viewers like to call “Death Park.” That’s where things went horribly wrong. Clyde’s henchman jumped the gun and impulsively shot the fan favorite. The next thing EJ knew, he was on the ground bleeding out.
Sami (Alison Sweeney) arrived at the scene and begged EJ to stay with her. She desperately wanted more time with the love of her life. Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. EJ quickly faded and Sami was left to grieve. “Days” watchers will never forget when Sami curled up beside EJ on the morgue table and tenderly wrapped his cold arm around her. What a tearjerker!
Bo and Hope
Hope (Kristian Alfonso) was kept away from Bo (Peter Reckell) for years thanks to Yo Ling’s (Tobin Bell) plot and Deimos’ (Vincent Irizarry) execution of it. “Days of Our Lives” fans knew that Bo would never abandon his love, but Hope naturally assumed the worst. When Bo showed up and saved “Fancy Face” from Aiden’s (Daniel Cosgrove) murder attempt, Hope was stunned.
It wasn’t long until Hope was ready for a fresh start with her soul mate. Unfortunately, Bo was forced to break the news that he had a brain tumor. Moments later, Bo died in Hope’s arms. As snow began to fall, Hope cradled Bo and cried out in despair. It marked the end of an era for this “Days” supercouple.
Daniel and Nicole
Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has had to deal with a lot of sorrow on “Days of Our Lives.” Some of it she brought on herself, but most it was simply bad luck. For whatever reason, DOOL never lets Nicole be happy for more than five seconds. However, Nicole finally found someone who would accept her just as she was. It took Daniel (Shawn Christian) a while to get there, but he eventually made some updates to his perspective. Nicole became the woman of Daniel’s dreams.
Nicole and Daniel managed to overcome nearly every obstacle that came their way, but they couldn’t get past a fatal one. In another stroke of bad luck, Daniel was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was involved in a horrific car crash on New Year’s Eve and was brain dead upon impact. Nicole was prepared to head to the altar, but she had to make funeral arrangements instead. It was difficult to see Nicole sobbing over Daniel’s body. Once again, Nicole’s chance at happiness was dashed.
