Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that there has to be more to the story when it comes to Gwen (Emily O’Brien). When DOOL introduced this new character, she brought some big mysteries to the canvas. Let’s take a closer look at this character and try to figure out what she’s all about. Here are three Gwen mysteries that still need to unravel.
1) Does Gwen have a significant last name?
It’s worth pointing out that Gwen is still just “Gwen” in the credits. That’s a bit peculiar since Gwen’s going to be a long-term character. The goon who was holding Gabi Hernandez DiMera (Camila Banus) hostage was just Jimmy (Chuma Gault), but that’s because he was only on the show for a handful of episodes. Jimmy wasn’t important, but Gwen is.
When Zoey Burge (Alyshia Ochse) came on the scene, she got the last name of “Burge” right off the bat. Since we know Gwen’s sticking around, why didn’t she get a last name, too? Could it be because Days fans would recognize that name? It’s possible Gwen’s tied to a villain or some other character of the past, so that could be a bomb that drops later.
2) What’s Gwen’s backstory?
So far, Days of Our Lives viewers don’t really know much about Gwen. DOOL’s only revealed that Gwen met Jake Lambert (Brandon Barash) a year and a half ago. We also know they had a passionate, love-hate kind of relationship that’s a lot like Gabi and Stefan DiMera’s (Brandon Barash).
However, that doesn’t tell us anything about Gwen’s childhood and background. Who is Gwen really? There are bound to be some interesting details that come out once Days is ready to expose them. We need to find out more about who Gwen is as a person since she’ll be staying in Salem for a while.
3) Is Gwen telling the truth about Jake?
Gwen seemed truly taken aback as John Black (Drake Hogestyn) tried to explain why Gabi thinks Jake is her dead husband, Stefan. Based on Gwen’s reaction, it felt like this was all brand-new information. Of course, we should note that Gwen faked a breakdown before landing at Bayview. That suggests Gwen could be pretty good at pretending!
Regardless, Gwen and Jake’s relationship is kind of odd. How and why did Jake fall for this British chick? Does Gwen really seem like Jake’s type? It’s possible Gwen knew Jake back when he was Sam Maitlin, which was the name Stefan used growing up in the United Kingdom.
Maybe Gwen’s in on the memory manipulation and just wanted Jake back in some form. Then again, there could be someone else involved here that pushed Gwen into Jake’s orbit. There have to be some intriguing puzzles pieces that’ll click into place eventually.
Do you think Gwen’s hiding something? What kind of buried secrets could come out down the road? As other DOOL news comes in, we’ll deliver more updates.
