Monday gave soap fans quite the emotional on-screen entrance for Daytime Emmy winner A Martinez on NBC’s Days of our Lives!
The former star of Santa Barbara, who is currently also co-starring on Longmire, made his highly-anticipated debut as Eduardo: the father of the late Paige (True O’Brien), ex of Eve’s (Kassie DePaiva) and the father of Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering), which all was basically revealed on the episode!
However, it was A’s scenes with Kassie DePaiva that were so nuanced, that right off the bat it was nice to see this mega-talent being given some material that pulled at the heartstrings as “Eddie” tried to comfort Eve, learn about the daughter he had not seen in many, many years, and attempting to come to grips with losing his little girl via a serial killer. Both Martinez and DePaiva stepped up to the plate in their very first scenes together.
At the end of the episode, Eduardo ran into Rafe … with the cop asking, “What are you doing here?” The pick-up of that scene will air Tuesday.
