Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Gabi Hernandez’s Crazy Story
Jake and Gabi meet and the mechanic’s first impression is that the Latina fashionista is crazy. She tells him that his name is Stefan and up until his “death,” they were married. Fans know that Gabi is just telling Jake the facts, but imagine meeting someone for the first time and having them make this wild claim.
“It knocks her [Gabi] off her feet. While Jake’s reaction to Gabi is, ‘Who the hell are you?’ Just imagine if you came across some random person who was convinced they were married to you six months ago. You’d be like, ‘Get out of here. What are you talking about? You’re a psycho.’ But she’s very persistent…”
Even though Jake thinks Gabi is bonkers, could she actually turn out to be right? What is the real story with Jake? Is he really a mechanic that just happens to look like Stefan? Or is there more to this story?
