They’ve found themselves at odds lately due to the way Hope has been handling her cases. Now, after his ex calls him and asks for his help once again, Rafe’s decision to be with Sami in her time of need could spell the end for this marriage to Hope on the Friday, Jan. 18 episode of “Days of Our Lives.”

Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been a major thorn in Hope’s (Kristian Alfonso) side ever since she learned of Rafe’s (Galen Gering) one-night stand with her before they wed. Since then on the NBC soap, they’ve worked past that, but Hope’s obsession with getting Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) away from Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and locked up has been coming between them now. Specifically, Hope’s obsession with getting Ben, by hiring Ted (Gilles Marini), and allowing Stefan (Tyler Christopher) to go free on espionage charges, has drawn some major ire from Rafe.

Now, following a call from Sami, who has been in Europe trying to get EJ back, could lead to another host of major problems for the couple. Spoilers reveal that Rafe will leave Salem to help his ex-wife, something that isn’t going to sit well with the woman he is currently married to, especially with the past taken into consideration.

Now, with each one of them doing things that are deeply upsetting the other, it could set them on a path that will see their marriage coming to an unfortunate end.

“Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC.
