The most powerful, heartfelt, realistic and emotionally resonant storyline currently airing in daytime is happening on a soap that has been more closely associated with science fiction and the supernatural in recent decades. This past week, Will Horton (Chandler Massey) came out to his grandmother, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall), on Days of Our Lives.
While some of the other storylines on DAYS are hit-or-miss right now. Will's struggle to come to terms with his sexuality, with the beloved and iconic Marlena there to gently guide him through his conflicting feelings, is soap opera at its best. Relive the moment—complete with Doc referencing Lady Gaga— after the jump!
