Forget mistletoe. The real exciting kiss daytime fans had this season was between Days of our Lives Paul (Christopher Sean) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) amidst Champagne toasts on New Year's Eve. The long-awaited smooch was one for the books, and it will definitely dictate the course of 2017 for the reunited lovers.
However, though the kiss means there's still something burning between them, Sean says not to assume so quickly that the two are back together.
"In soap operas, nothing is ever cemented. But it does solidify the fact that they love each other," the actor told TV Insider. "There is still that passion and that fire but they still have to talk and figure out the past."
But what about Paul's boyfriend, Derrick (Spencer Neville)? Sean says fans probably won't see a love triangle play out like many assumed would happen.
"It's always been less about Derrick and Paul being together and more about Paul and Sonny eventually becoming a power couple. I don't think the writers were looking to build a triangle," he shares. "The fans are tired of waiting for PaulSon to happen. They're ready to move forward with this thing. Actually, Derrick is the catalyst here. He's the one who sees what's going on between Paul and Sonny and urges Sonny -- who is really nervous about making a commitment after he kisses Paul -- to follow his heart... When he lets Paul go it's like that old saying, 'If you love something, let it go. If it comes back, it was meant to be.' And, if not, you'll find something better.' [Laughs] I guess that's poor Derrick's storyline."
