Days of Our Lives' Mary Beth Evans (Kayla Brady) is spilling secrets on the big time jump and her new romantic pairing with Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis). At the recent Day of Days event, Evans told TV Insider how excited she was about the new couple, despite how much she misses her returning screen partner, Stephen Nichols (Steve "Patch" Johnson).

She said:

It never feels the same to me when he's not there. We've been apart a few times on the show and I'm always like 'hurry up and come back!'

The Kayla/Justin reveal came after Justin's wife and Kayla's sister-in-law, Adrienne (Judi Evans), was apparently killed by son-in-law Will Horton (Chandler Massey). How did this unexpected romance develop? 

Evans teased:

We wanted to play it very grown-up and peel all the onion [layers] away. I think for both of us it was a nice experience to go through this thing. They're a complicated relationship but a grown-up relationship and it's been really, really fun.
