DAYS Marci Miller, Billy Flynn & Camila Banus Preview What Lies Ahead For Abby/Chad/Gabi!

Days of our Lives has just gotten juicy with the arrival of the believed-to-be-dead Abigail played by Marci Miller. The actress finally made her on-screen debut on Monday taking over the role previously played by Kate Mansi.

Now with Abby back on the canvas and returning to Salem, it sets the stage for a new love triangle between Abby, her formerly grieving husband Chad (Billy Flynn), and the apparently new lady love in his life, (who the character was involved with before) Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus).

Miller, Billy Flynn and Camila Banus chatted with TV Insider’s Michael Logan and shared teased some upcoming scenes and previewed this big story that is ahead for all of them.

Marci related just why Abby won’t tell Chad she’s alive yet, especially since she previously went cray-cray and vanished out of Salem: “Abby still loves Chad but she knows, deep in her heart, that it’s best if he never knows she’s alive. The last thing her husband needs is to be sacrificing his life taking care of a manic, out-of-her-mind wife, and she knows that’s exactly what Chad would do. He’s a good, solid, stand-up guy. She thinks she’s doing him a favor by staying dead.”

Meanwhile, Flynn explains it’s complicated now that Chad is developing feelings for Gabi: “Maybe it’s not that long since Abby’s ‘death’ but Chad’s grieving period really began much earlier than that.  In his heart, he lost her when she began losing her mind and went into the hospital. That’s when he started to release her. That’s when he started to mourn. If Abby and Chad were to get back together, he’d always feel he’s walking on eggshells. He wouldn’t be able to speak his heart, or have a disagreement or a fight with her, without worrying if it would make her crazy again.”

As for Banus’ Gabi in all of this, she dished: “Gabi still loves JJ to death and wishes he could be what she needs.  She’s had a rough time in life. She’s being neglected by JJ. He’s not there for her—physically, mentally, emotionally. It’s not like she’s planning to marry Chad, but she certainly deserves some happiness with him.”

So when all is said and done will you be rooting for Chad and Abby, or Chad and Gabi?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

#Chabby will always win in the end. They are meant to be forever, no matter what.

Well, to hear what Billy and Camila have to say for their characters, Chad and Gabi deserve each other for their selfishness alone.

Marci is already doing a fantastic job as Abby!

I agree, 4ever. I abhor cheaters. To me, Gabi is a cheater, even if said cheating is emotional and not doing the deed. Chad may not be a cheater, per se, because he believes Abby is dead; but, he knows Gabi is with JJ…..so……same thing!! I believe that feeling ‘neglected’ is a poor excuse. Everyone goes through difficult periods….then, again, this is a soap. I would love to see Chad with Abby. However, I think the PTB will tred easy on this issue; depending on their interaction…..how they fit as a couple. This is unchartered territory. So, perhaps a “getting… Read more »

Agreed, 4ever Days!
The faked death kind of complicates matters…but Fans love all 3 characters. Why not just say, “o m g! The great love of his life is back from a faked death. He has started to move on with her bestie. What’s a guy to do?!?!”

Gabi may have to run and hide from Julie, Jimmy. Gabi murdered Nick. Now, at one fell swoop, Gabi will hurt Abby and JJ! Slaps or busted kneecaps are on the way!

Good premise, Jimmy. We shall see if Chad is worth fighting for. I could never understand the concept of “fight for your man”. If my husband hurt me in any irreparable way; such as cheating, or even having lukewarm feelings about another woman? It’s bye, bye for me.
But, you’re right…..there will be cat fights galore….the silent ones, albeit, 4ever’s depictions of smashed kneecaps would be a great comic relief.
I would love to see the typical soap cat fights!!!!

Keep your chin up, Jimmy. Things will work out. This is an outlet for and about escapism. This site may be what helps you get through rough times, so please consider sticking with MFS and your friends/fans, but talking to someone face to face about your troubles is crucial. Be safe, ask for help.

I’m not buying Chad developing feelings for Gabi. After all the obstacles Chad had to overcome to finally marry Abigail, I don’t believe he could move on so soon. Yes, he believes she is dead. But, this should be a huge lose for him and letting go of her should be very difficult and painful. Also, he should be very cautious about opening his heart to someone else. Out of respect for his great love for Abigail, I hope they are at least going to show Chad being very conflicted about a relationship with Gabi. Gabi should also be extremely… Read more »

Why are Gabi and Chad being painted as the bad guys here? Abigail asked Andre to fake her death. She’s the one who plans on continuing the lie. I get it she’s not in her right mind right now and that mitigates it in my mind. I personally want Chad back with Abigail and Gabi back with JJ. That’s a win-win in my mind but I just don’t think it’s really fair to villify Chad or Gabi. That’s my two cents anyway.

Hi, Troy,
I do agree to a certain extend, Troy. However, we must remember that Gabi has a very volatile personality. I wonder if she ended up with Chad; how long would it be before she tired of him?
As I said, if there’s no chemistry between Billy and Marci…..well, I, for one, would not want them as a couple.

Because Chad and Gabi come off badly? Abby is supposed to be the great love of Chad’s life but he moves on from her in 10 seconds and Gabi is supposed to be her friend but apparently will be with her husband even after Abigail comes back. And if Gabi’s love was so great how come she gets with Chad so fast? Basically they both sound shallow and insensitive.

Celia

I may be wrong, Nina, but I think that because Marci is a new character; specifically Abby, it would be kind of awkward for her and Chad to be thrown together, one-two-three. ( forgive my run-on sentence).
Marci and Billy need a grace period, of sorts. This Gabi business is designed for Chad and Abby to ‘feel’ their way around each other. Just a thought.

How about we have no villain here? Ultimately I would like to see Chad and Abby win out but I can see why things would go this way with Gabi. It is possible to have a triangle where no one is a bad guy, and I would love for DAYS to go that way with this story. Also, why are we leaving JJ out of this? Isn’t this actually a Quadrangle?

Billy fabulous actor. Camilla and him have it down pat but I want a Chabby reunion. ❤️ You all. Miller did an amazing opening. JJ and Gabbie

Would like Chad and Abigail to get back together.

Gabi deserves someone good and single and not a cheater. I don’t know if she and JJ can get back together. I never really bought them together. JJ’s whole storyline, with him being an instacop, has seemed very contrived.

Tell me about it, Mo. what a joke!! Just as Dylan on Y&R….instant robocop.

Celia…I get what you’re saying about the ‘Instant Robocop’ stuff. But…I (character-wise and all) find JJ to be A LOT LESS ANNOYING than Dylan on Y&R. But, hey, that’s just me.

Later, my friend.

@jaybird.
Hello, there, jay,
Yeah, I would have said the same thing, just a couple of months ago. You know how anything and everything Dylan did was irritating to me. And I certainly did not hide that fact. LOL.
But, Dylan stepped up his game. The actor’s head came out of the bag, as it were. I actually saw a personality emerging; just when he is ready to leave.
…..very disappointing for me, as I anticipated so much more from this character.
‘Nite, jay.

I meant Gabi, not Abby.

Hopefully, we won’t be seeing an unwanted return of Crazy Gabi again the last time she was involved in a love triangle with Chad.

DAYS Brandon Barash On Stefan’s Resurrection: “You’ll See Some Revenge, Corporate Takeovers, Losing a Memory … Maybe Gaining of Memories”

Dr. Rolf is at it again on Days of our Lives! While Jake DiMera has met his maker, apparently his twin brother, Stefan O DiMera is coming back to life.  That sets the stage for Brandon Barash to reprise his original DAYS role.

In a brand new interview with his on-screen brother, Dan Feuerriegel (EJ) on the Days of our Lives You Tube Channel, Barash talks on what viewers can expect once Stefan is completely back in action, and how he feels about taking on the darker twin once again.

Brandon teased: “You’ll see some revenge, corporate takeovers, losing a memory … maybe gaining of memories.”  With Stefan back in the DiMera mix, look for the two brothers to not always see eye-to-eye. Barashs shared that they’ll be, “Butting heads for sure”.

Meanwhile, will Stefan and his true love, Gabi (Camila Banus) reunite once she knows he is alive? Barash weighs-in on that and more ‘burning’ questions.

You can check out the chat below.

Now, let us know, are you glad that Stefan O DiMera is back on the Salem canvas? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
