Judi Evans on Adrienne/Justin/Hope Triangle: "Three Nice People Trying to do The Right Thing"
It’s so terrific to have you back on Days. Plus, we find Adrienne in a rather fresh kind of romantic triangle with Justin [Wally Kurth] and Hope [Kristian Alfonso]. There’s no villain here, no one to hate or resent. It’s radically adult.
It makes a great dynamic and I’m hoping they’ll keep it playing. Adrienne and Hope are friends and they’re both good girls and Justin’s a good guy. No one is being manipulative. Hope didn’t have the same feelings for Justin that he had for her, so she brought Adrienne back to Salem, thinking he was just substituting her for Adrienne. She tried to do a good thing by reuniting them. Usually in a triangle the ex shows up out of nowhere—or comes back from the dead!—but here it’s just three nice people trying to do the right thing.
