Dear Soaps,
On Guiding Light, I heard Michelle tell Claire that she and Danny went through a lot to be together. What exactly did they go through? — Kendra

Dear Kendra,
The real question is what haven't Danny and Michelle gone through? The couple didn't exactly get off on the right foot since Michelle had killed Danny's brother, Mick, in self-defense. Danny and Michelle agreed to fake romantic feelings for each other so that the Santos family would spare Michelle's life. Then, they fell in love for real. Next, Carmen, Danny's mom, orchestrated Michelle's conviction for the murder of Ben Warren. It looked like Danny and Michelle would be separated for quite a while after Michelle was put on death row. Danny helped clear Michelle, but she miscarried his baby after being released from prison. Memories of Carmen have been haunting Michelle, too. Currently, Danny believes that Michelle's mom, Claire, had nothing to do with Carmen's death, but don't be surprised to see that story point take a twist, giving Danny and Michelle even more heartache.
