Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that the NBC soap has several pairings that fans can root for. Of course, one of those pairings involves Gabi DiMera (Camila Banus) and Jake Lambert (Brandon Barash), who stands a very good chance of being Stefan DiMera (Brandon Barash) at the end of all this.
Gabi will be saved from the kidnapping nightmare she’s currently stuck in, so that’s good to know. Although Jake’s former flame, Gwen, is going to cause some issues, she’s clearly not the person we’re supposed to want Jake paired up with. At its core, this storyline is about Gabi and Jake aka probably Stefan.
However, DOOL has some interesting options based on how that story’s played out so far. They could save the “Stabi” reunion for when Jake potentially faces a memory flood. That could bring a moment where remembers his love for Gabi and finally realizes what he’s been missing all this time.
Then again, there’s another route that Days could take. Jake might pursue a relationship with Gabi as Jake first and establish ‘Jabi.’ It’s clear that Gabi’s getting under Jake’s skin and affecting his emotions.
Jake’s also quite concerned about Gabi now that she’s been abducted. Jake seems to be developing some feelings whether he wants to admit it or not.
If Jake isn’t lying and genuinely doesn’t recall his life as Stefan, he could still want a new life with Gabi. How would Gabi feel about dating Jake as Jake and not Stefan?
When Gabi went to Jake’s room recently to get that DNA sample, she was disgusted by his lair. Gabi muttered about Jake being a slob and was appalled by what had been done to Stefan.
Jake is certainly the opposite of the sophisticated man Gabi fell in love with. Could Gabi learn to love a rough-around-the-edges guy like Jake? After all, Jake definitely as new memories he’s made and those aren’t going to go away.
Jake may not snap back to being sophisticated Stefan, even if his old memories return. He’d probably be more of a Jake and Stefan combo.
Regardless, Gabi has no way of knowing if Stefan’s memories will ever return. Even if Gabi proves this is Stefan, there are no guarantees he can be Stefan again.
Naturally, Days of Our Lives will surely let those memories come back sooner or later, but we have to look at this from Gabi’s perspective. Gabi might have to accept Jake for who he is now if she wants him back.
Would you like to see Gabi and Jake as a ‘Jabi’ couple first? Should Days let that relationship play out for a while before Jake remembers he’s Stefan?
We know Gabi will sit next to Jake at Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and Ciara Brady’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding, so maybe there’s hope for Jake and Gabi’s awkward adventures in dating!
