DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ Eli knew from the get-go that Gabi had a criminal past. After all, she did time for Nick’s murder! Nevertheless, he was willing to give their connection a chance. “When he first met Gabi, sparks flew for him,” Lamon Archey (Eli) recalls. “She may not have been all the way in, but he was very intrigued by her.”
Now that she’s being tried for killing Andre, his resolve is being put to the test. “I really like how strong Eli is and how he’s always there for those he cares about,” observes the actor. “If he loves you, he will do anything and everything for you.”
But with Gabi’s trial taking several unexpected turns, emotions are run- ning high. All Eli can do now is trust that his girlfriend is indeed telling him the truth about her innocence. “In the past,” Archey observes hopefully, “Gabi and Eli have always had an honest relationship with each other.” But will that prove true moving forward?
