Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) will get some terrible news during the week of June 8-12. A difficult blow will shatter Rafe’s world, so it certainly sounds like Zoey Burge (Alyshia Ochse) will win custody of David Ridgeway (Kyler Ends). Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) will also end up comforting Rafe, which serves as further proof of a tough defeat.
Rafe wanted to be a dad for quite some time before David came into his life. He’s cared for this little boy as his own and truly wanted to be David’s father forever. Despite saying and doing everything he can in court, it looks like the judge will side with David’s biological relative.
Zoey has another unfair advantage since she’s a lawyer and knows all the angles she can work to make sure David ends up with her. On the bright side, Zoey isn’t like her devious dad. Orpheus (George DelHoyo) is a monster who shouldn’t play any kind of role in his grandson’s life.
Evan Frears aka Christian Maddox (Brock Kelly) killed David’s mother, Jordan Ridgeway (Chrishell Stause), so he’s obviously not father material. Zoey may not be a very nice person, but she does care about David’s well-being.
Rafe will at least know David’s not going to grow up on the run around bombs and whatever else Orpheus might have in store for his enemies.
However, that won’t ease the pain of bidding David farewell and being forced to let go. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Hope’s heart will break for Rafe, who’ll confide in Hope when he needs her most. We can surely expect an emotional hug, so Rafe will likely crumble in Hope’s arms.
Rafe and Hope have been bonding again lately and seemed poised for a reunion – although it would have to be a brief one. DOOL fans can expect Rafe to leave the show around September, but that decision wasn’t made at this point in the story. Rafe and Hope could easily reunite since Days writers previously had plans for Rafe’s future.
Regardless, Hope might assure Rafe that he could have another chance at fatherhood. That chance may drop into Rafe’s lap since pregnant Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) is set to make a DOOL comeback soon.
It looks like Allie may ask Rafe to adopt her baby before Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) emerge as more likely Daddy candidates.
If Rafe loses David and this shot at raising Allie’s kid, that’ll be a double blow! We’ll fill you in as other Days updates emerge. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Rafe’s in for a rough time, but at least he’ll have Hope to help him through this David nightmare.
