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?

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.

Yeah Shady Pines is from Golden Girls. I will miss Kate and Robert for sure.

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! 🙁

Hey, PF.
Your comment is soooo hilarious, I could not concentate after your first sentence. I am still cackling like a looney-toone. It just hit my funny bone!!!!!
Yes, I will mis Kate….buona fortuna…..

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!”

Celia

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 than Sam (GH).

yes shady pines is the home Sophia lived in on the Golden Girls

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 she is but doesnt tell her…he gets her a new face that resembles his late wife Phoebe and convinces her they are married…he accidentally killed his real wife, and buried her in the woods without telling her wealthy widowed father Winston Grimes…Phoebe is set to inherit her dieing ffather’s vast fortune and Nelson is determined to get that loot and then kill Phoebe/Abby…but when Chad runs into the couple will he realize Phoebe is his missing wife Abigail Dimera?…ok, i made this up-lol

Yes, I’m sure that’s what TPTB have in mind–a new face; how (not!) original is that?1

Hey, that’s GOOD–I really like your storyline! Wish they writers paid attention to you! Great imagination!

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?
Well, not only is he Andre’s peon; Aidan has an agenda of his own. I do believe he will somehow make Ciara change her rape story. How? It’s a soap…they’ll think of something. Oh, yeah….something like ” I never said NO! I thought I did….”.
If that happens, that will be it !! Why is it that women always have to prove themselves? I would not appreciate being in that predicament, albeit I do appreciate the horror women experience at the hands of these animals.
Sorry…I got carried away …..,

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.

nancy dillingham

Agreed!

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 Chad they get this nonsense and a stupid fire plastic surgery plot. Days is its worse enemy. When was the last time you saw a truly happy couple on the show for any length of time. They bring back Higley who is overlooking other talented writers on the show. HIgley is of course, the kiss of death, and she immediately does her own agenda – out Belle, in Chloe. John and Marlena just like its 1981 again. Rope is forced on us because someone clearly loves Galen even though Rope has zero chemistry. Its time to pull the plug on the show. Sorry, its just not worth saving.

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.

Celia

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.

Oh, Lord..And then some…lol

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.
