Brant Daugherty the star of the television show Pretty Little Liars is guest starring on Days of Our Lives. Brant’s character Brian shows up at the pub and grills Will Horton about not being comfortable being gay. Brian accuses Will of preferring to be perceived Stefano Dimera’s killer than be openly gay . Sonny is jealous that Brian and Will hang out at the Salem gay bar the Spot with another gay guy Neil.
After Will leaves the pub, Brian and Sonny have a heated conversation about Will. Brian seems attracted to Sonny since he is out and proud to be gay.
Brian senses that Sonny is very attracted to Will and he tells Sonny he acts like a gay mentor instead of a potential boyfriend. Furthermore, Brian warns Sonny that Will Horton has a lot of baggage.
I think the new character Brian is needed to spice up the Will and Sonny storyline. Since Sonny was introduced to the audience as a gay character he hasn’t kissed another guy, had sex with another man, or even been on a date with a guy. Brian is very blunt but he might be the catalyst to push Will and Sonny together.
