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 being Gabby, from her speech. to her mannerisms, she’s got Camila Banus down pat…good job loving DAYS.

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 into any other fake death plots.

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.

That’s terrific, I love her!

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

Not a fan, but she is good to have around when you need someone to blame a murder on.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
