WEDDING DAY SHOCK

Hope and Rafe’s marriage may be over before it’s even begun now that Hope has discovered Rafe cheated on her with Sami, on Days of Our Lives.
Throughout her romance with Rafe, Hope has experienced a swathe of conflicting emotions as she’s had second thoughts about moving on with another man after losing Bo, the love of her life, a few years ago. At times, she’s wondered whether she can trust Rafe’s commitment to her. Finally, however, she resolved to put her fears aside and forge a future with him, unaware that he’s hiding a huge secret from her.
That secret involves Rafe (Galen Gering) sleeping with his ex-wife Sami (Alison Sweeney) a few months ago, when he and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) had briefly broken up. Immediately regretting his infidelity, Rafe resolved never to tell Hope and secured Sami’s silence, finally reconciling with Hope and becoming engaged to her. He momentarily panicked when Ciara (Victoria Konefal) stumbled on his betrayal but thought he dodged a bullet when Ciara opted not to hurt her mother by revealing it.
That all changed recently when a troubled Ciara broke her silence, confiding Rafe’s infidelity to Tripp (Lucas Adams), both unaware that Claire’s (Olivia Rose Keegan) phone had recorded the conversation. Fatefully, Claire heard the recording and was horrified to learn that Rafe had cheated on her grandmother. With Rafe and Hope’s wedding nearing, Claire wrestled with whether to tell Hope the truth but before she could, Hope and Rafe skipped town on a romantic vacation.
At the Horton cabin on Smith Island, Hope unveiled a weekend of pure romance for her fiancé, surprising him by summoning a Justice of the Peace to marry them immediately in the intimate and peaceful setting.
Rafe agreed and he and Hope exchanged vows and were pronounced husband and wife before making love on their wedding night. They returned to
Salem the next morning, intent on hiding their secret marriage and going through with their planned wedding to please their families.
Unfortunately, as the guests gathered and the ceremony was about to begin, a guilty Claire got into an argument with Ciara about the secret they both knew, with Ciara begging her niece not to ruin Hope’s special day. However, Claire couldn’t keep quiet any longer and interrupted the ceremony to tell Hope “Rafe cheated on you”. Rafe looked ashen as Hope stared at him, desperately wanting answers.
Much to everyone’s horror, the truth about Rafe sleeping with Sami was finally divulged, leaving Hope an angry and broken newlywed bride. Ultimately, she broke down, telling Rafe he’d broken her trust and her heart and that their new marriage was over.
With the Hernandez marriage in tatters, it’s obvious that Rafe won’t let his wife slip away from him easily and will fight to win her back. But Hope may not be as willing to forgive as he wants, leaving the future of the relationship uncertain.
Hope and Rafe’s marriage may be over before it’s begun.
Hope (Kristian Alfonso) learns of Rafe’s (Galen Gering) huge secret.
