Abigail To Make Her Great Escape As Kate Mansi Departs DAYS: Watch The Promo!

Courtesy/NBC

It’s a must see week of Days of our Lives with a major conclusion cliffhanger on the June 24th episode of the NBC daytime drama series. That’s the airdate that both Kate Mansi (Abigial) and Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) say goodbye to Salem and their characters of Abigail and Ben.

As viewers witnessed on the Friday, June 17th episode of DAYS, Abigail was burned in the fire at Shady Hills, which left her with burns on her hands and her arms, and her face exposed to accelerant.

When Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Chad (Billy Flynn) arrive on the scene, Chad immediately wants to see his wife. When he finally gets into see her, Abigail has a mask covering her face and has been sedated, but when she wakes up she sees another vision of Ben standing right near her bedside.  She insists to Chad that Ben is there, but there is no Ben once Abby glances over to the foot of her bed a second time.  With no one believing her, Dr. Robison sedates her again.

Later, Shawn (Brandon Beemer) reveals to Chad that the police investigation has discovered that it was Abigail who started the fire.  Chad is overcome and beside himself with worry.  That sets the stage for next week on DAYS.  In the latest promo from NBC, Abigail looks like she is about to escape Shady Hills once and for all through a window and leave everyone behind.  Will she be able to do it that way?

After the jump, watch the promo featuring Kate Mansi’s final week of airshows and then let us know  … what you think of how DAYS is crafting the exit of the popular character of Abby so they can bring her back as nuAbby now being played by Marci Miller? Are you sad to see Kate and Rob leave the canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I think that the hospital’s name is Shady Hills. Isn’t Shady Pines the rest home that Sophia lived in on “The Golden Girls”? Anyway, I’ll miss Kate Mansi. She’s one of the few bright spots on DOOL right now.

You are correct, PF. Abby is a patient at Shady Hills. I Googled Shady Pines which is featured in The Golden Girls.

A very unimaginative way to take Kate out–and, yes, her story was a highlight and one of the reasons I started watching Days again-along with Patch and Kayla’s story–both stories are stagnant now–and I can take or leave Days now on any given day. Sigh! 🙁

I quit watching Days after Will Horton’s murder, so I don’t know what the rest home is called. But you are right: Shady Pines is where Sophia had lived on “The Golden Girls.” As soon as I read that name in this article, I heard Bea Arthur (may she rest in peace) threatening in her booming voice: “Shady Pines, Ma, Shady Pines!”

LOL, sonniorsolita. The inference between Sofia and Dorothy is sooo bittersweet, but hilarious. I agree, Dool recent stories are neither here nor there. Kate’s sendoff should have been ‘handled’ with much more sensitivity. Abby is coming back; therefore, why not pave a cleaner and ‘saner’ path? Then, there’s Rafe and Hope. What I would say to Rafe is: ‘Good riddance’ ! Who needs that fickle woman…damsel in distress, in constant comfort and need. She’s a grandmother, for Petey’s sake. Act like one!! Then there’s Ciara! OMG!!! Cannot tolerate this girl’s mumbled words, hushed nasal tones, barely moving her lips. Worse… Read more »

Abigail will probably return with a new face because of the fire and have a different identity due to amnesia or she will come to Salem without amnesia but wont reveal herself because of her Ben fears or she will reveal herself but no one at first believes she is Abby…or newface Abby arrives at the hospital with amnesia not knowing who she is…she cant explain what drawn her to Salem…then a mysterious man named Nelson Riddle arrives in town claiming to be her husband…he had found burn face Abby who was in another accident and developed amnesia…he knows who… Read more »

You know I am your greatest fan, Jimmy. Always have been. I absolutely love your “for instance”, or “let’s assume”. They all make better sense than the fare we are getting lately. Well, for some time, now. They killed the show when they killed Will. Nonetheless; what I don’t understand is why resurrect Aidan . He is a bad guy who is using both Hope and Ciara. Of course, Hope is too stupid to notice. She is so full of herself, she believes his compliments and declaration of love. She’s a cop. Shouldn’t her keen, trained senses tell her otherwise?… Read more »

I will definitely miss Kate Mansi and Rob Wilson. It sucks that Days has lost so many great actors.

Been watching DOOL since the beginning.. a long, long time. I wasn’t quite sure about Kate Mansi when she first started, but she grew on me, with better writing, her acting excelled. Ben was always ambiguous, sweet with a dark side. I did not like when DOOL allowed him to take her baby wile setting her bed on fire…way too violent for daytime TV! Yet appreciated the intense acting of Ben and Abby’s characters. Good luck to both actors!

I am going to miss Kate Mansi and Rob Scott Wilson so very much. Both have done outstanding work in the Salem Strangler and Descent into Madness stories. I wish both of them tremendous success in the future.

I prefer the recasting of an actor to be done with the simple announcement, “The role of …..is now being played by…. “. It’s not necessary to contrive a silly plot point to explain the switch. That said, I am sad to see Kate leave the show.

I hear you, Mister! I think we in the audience understand the nature of serialized drama to accept the convention of actor replacements for in the short and long term. We do not always need a dramatic plot point for an exit or entrance.

This storyline shows exactly what is wrong with Days. They had a hot threesome they could have focused on for years much like B&B does with Ridge, Brooke and person x but they chose to blow it up by making Ben a killer. Yes, it worked the Ben storyline scenes were well acted and suspenseful and afterward we were left with i Chad and Abby. fans can accept it. Days knew Kate Mansi, their best heroine was leaving for months and instead of giving the fans what they wanted, a payoff of weeks of romance with a happy Abby and… Read more »

I still don’t know why Abby has a baby and is Married at her age. Abby and Chad should be causing all kinds of Trouble around town.

Really? I was married right after College and had a baby a year later. Kate and I are about the same age and Billy is 30 something. Young, but not so young! LOL.
I would think Abby caused enough trouble with EJ and Sami.
Sadly, she is leaving….just when her performances have been sooo stellar….sooo unequaled. I hope
Doors should be opening left and right for her….she is that good and then dome.

Geez is this the OLDEST soap-opera trick in the book or WHAT? Forty years ago, or more, the character of Larry Worleck on One Life to Live was played by Michael Storm who took over the role from his real-life actor brother. They bandaged up his face and explained that some cosmetic modification had occurred. It has since been done on soaps SOOO many times. Will they explain her new vocal inflections as well?
Oh well, not terribly original but this show drags along anyway.

It has been good writing for her storyline. I am anxious to find out where they will go with it. I love a a good storyline that I don’t see coming and Days has def done that. Not always the Best Storylines but more original than others…. Thanks!!

I will miss Kate and Robert.They are great actors and it has been so good to watch them play their characters.Their storyline of love,beytrayal,hurt and all out craziness has being so exciting to watch.Ben and Abigail craziness tops EJ and Sami’s crazy antics.The difference being EJ/Sami were not certified… insane.Kate Mansi has left her mark as Abigail.She will be missed.As far as Robert I am hoping he make his way back to Days again.He has been so good on the show.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
