I’m thrilled! She just liked a tweet I wrote yesterday when I saw a picture of her NOT in prison garb. Happy to know she’s out of jail.

This is great news! I think she is one of the most interesting characters on the show. I am still hoping for a Gabi/Stefan pairing.

To me, the funniest part of Gabi’s storyline is that in prison before visiting Eli and Chad, she had gotten her hair done perfectly in that braid style (not sure if that’s called a French braid or not…lol) and her nails were perfectly manicured. I was surprised she was reading an actual book and not reading a Kindle or iPad…..if this is how you get treated in prison, well, before she took an ass whooping, then everyone should want to be in prison at some point of their life……off subject, I must say that Marci Miller does an excellent job… Read more »

Totally agree, Scott. Marci Miller has been fabulous!

I didn’t see anything wrong with her hair. She could have done it or another inmate. They have time on their hands. Her nails were probably manicured before she went in. After some time in there, her nails would probably not look so great.

Gabi should have been in protective custody. That’s what rings hollow the most in this prison storyline.

No thanks. Haven’t watched in a long time. Not interested in nu-Abigail or Gabi. I only tune-in for Kristen Dimera sightings.

Hopefully we will see Kristen soon, dmr……I don’t know who I like more, Susan or Kristen….

Well, the one irony of this mess is that it would be seemingly impossible to tell any story which would somehow exonerate Psycho Ben without involving the DiMeras. And with Stefano & Andre being dead, Chad a goody two shoes (when not delivering a well deserved beat down) and Stefan being too new to the family to be involved, that would leave Kristen as the only eligible DiMera to be behind such an unholy plot. We already know she was in on the faking of Will’s death, and also EJ’s, so it’s not much of a stretch to write her… Read more »

I am tired of fake death plots. DAYS is a great soap but producing/writing teams on that program rely on this trope too much. When someone dies in Salem, I just expect one day they will walk through the door again. It happens too much on the other daytime dramas too.

Lets hope she stays away from prison for a change and has a success at business…she should take her stuff and sell online…

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

Check out the latest NBC promo featuring Abe’s life hanging in the balance below.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
