Get out your calendars. After months and months of frustrating delays, false starts and countless emotional pitfalls, Days of Our Lives' Will and Sonny will finally make love on the NBC soap's Nov. 14 episode. And — steam alert! — TV Guide Magazine has this exclusive video preview of what's sure to be a very talked-about scene (below).
"The Will and Sonny fans have waited a long time for this but the delay has been a good thing," says Freddie Smith, who plays Sonny. "It's allowed the audience to get to know our characters and to get to a place where they are really rooting for them to get together. I don't expect anyone will think the sex scene is controversial. Hopefully, we're past that. This isn't a story about two gay guys. It's about two human beings who truly love each other."
