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.
Hope does not like Justin like that and she believes he and Adrienne belong together. So she called Adrienne back to Salem, possibly hoping that if they were together, they would get together. "Hope called her back," Judi told us. "It's all Hope's fault! And Justin didn't know that Hope called her. She thought she was rescuing Justin, even though they're divorced, and ended up finding out that it was kind of a ruse. I think initially she was very humiliated. She thought she was there to help Justin. 'Hi, I'm here to save you. What? You don't …' Never mind! I think there's a part of her that certainly misses being a family and being together and he is the love of her life. But they are divorced."
