Days of Our Lives has graced our screens for numerous decades, and it’s challenging to envision something they haven’t explored.
Nevertheless, this enduring soap opera continually manages to surprise its fans with unexpected twists.
The narrative involving Leo and Dimitri was one such surprising angle that completely caught us off guard.
From the moment Dimitri began pursuing Gwen, it was evident that something was amiss with the charming man.
Megan had been outspoken about using Gwen for marriage, so we knew Dimitri’s insincerity didn’t revolve around feigning love. There had to be another reason.
Our jaws dropped in astonishment when Dimitri unexpectedly kissed Leo. It’s difficult to believe that anyone saw this coming on Days of Our Lives.
Even after Dimitri confessed his genuine affection for Leo, it was hard to fathom.
Speculations ran wild for weeks, suggesting that Dimitri might have been pretending to have feelings for Leo to protect his secret.
But look at them now, deeply in love and on the run as lovestruck fugitives.
But what lies ahead for them? Greg Rikaart and Peter Porte candidly shared their insights at a Days of Our Lives fan event in Los Angeles.
They revealed that Dimitri and Leo are in for an exciting journey in the upcoming months.
However, amid the romantic comedy, Peter hinted at the challenges their love will face, saying, “I think our love is tested as we realize how much we are in love.”
Greg also added an interesting tidbit, mentioning that he has a history with both Peter and Emily from The Young and The Restless before DOOL, making their reunion a fantastic and enjoyable experience.
Looking to the future, Peter expressed a desire for a twist in the Days of Our Lives storyline, where Leo goes in a different direction with someone else, leading to a new love triangle.
There were even humorous musings about Gwen returning with Dimitri’s child in her belly, which Greg defended as “OUR baby.”
It appears that Greg and Peter have contemplated the future storyline quite extensively.
They also expressed their desire to involve Marlena in Leo and Dimitri’s storyline on Days of Our Lives, particularly as their therapist.
Peter emphasized that having Deidre join as their therapist would be a significant development.
When considering potential storylines for his character Leo, Greg grappled with finding something unusual that hadn’t already been thrown his way.
Ultimately, he settled on the idea of adversity as a compelling layer for his character, something Leo hasn’t encountered before. But these are their preferences.
What would you choose for Dimitri and Leo if you were the writer?
