Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Paul (Christopher Sean) recently shared a passionate New Year’s Eve kiss on Days of our Lives-- Well, as passionate a kiss as gay men can have on soaps-- and are in the process of finding their way back to each other. The only impediment to a reunion may be Smith's contract which is set to expire.

However, Smith reveals in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest that he hopes to continue on DAYS as Sonny. "I’ve learned that DAYS is an iconic show and I just love what they’re doing. If It makes any sense, I need to be there.”

That is good news for fans of the couple known as PaulSon, as well as those who hope to see Sonny's late husband Will resurrected one day.   Could we see Paul, Sonny and Will front and center this summer?  I sure wouldn't mind it!

Be sure to check out Smith's full interview in Soap Opera digest available now on newsstands.
