What Happened to Rafe on Days Of Our Lives

Rafe Hernandez has been on Days Of Our Lives for a decade now, and there hasn’t been any drama he couldn’t handle… at least not yet! The FBI agent first appeared in October of 2008 when Passions star Galen Gering made his debut as Rafe on Days. And although he took a little break at the beginning of 2019, Rafe is back in action and ready for anything... or is he? Rafe was introduced as the FBI agent assigned to guard Sami Brady while she was in Witness Protection. While their relationship started off antagonistic, they soon became friends, and he even stepped in to help her hide the fact that she was carrying Ej Dimera’s baby.
