DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abby, Gabby, and Dr. Laura: Three Personalities But Which One Will Survive?

Courtesy/NBC

Last week on Days of our Lives, viewers were shocked when yet another personality emerge from Abigail (Marci Miller). This time it was Dr. Laura, named after her grandmother and shrink, Dr. Laura Horton.

From all appearances it seems like Dr. Laura is more in control than the fiery Gabby, or the emotional Abby. But when all is said in done, which personality will be the one that is dominant?

As we have seen with other DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) storylines, at some point, an attempt to integrate the personalities is the order of the day.  But for now, what secrets are Gabby and Dr. Laura protecting Abigail from that caused her to split? We know that she murdered Andre, but what did Andre (Thaao Penghlis) potentially say or do to her prior to his murder?

This story gets juicier every day, and kudos to Marci Miller for bringing this storyline to life from the pen of head writer, Ron Carlivati.

Now after the jump, watch this week’s promo from NBC and let us know how you think this will all play out via the comment section below!

Andre said she is nuttier than the Three Stooges-so 3 personalities developed-lol

We should find humor in this, Jimmy…..it offers nothing else. I am not liking this claptrap. I cannot take it too seriously because it is not presented as such…’Tis too farcical to take it to heart. This is a serious desease, not something of which to make mince meat. So, you are the perfect guy to make me laugh about this complete blarney….and, Harry; but, he doesn’t watch Days, LOL. As I said, Gabi is waaaay so unlike how Abby is portraying her….or, is this what people entrapped in multiple personalities do? The story is too confusing to follow. At… Read more »

Her Gabi comes off too much like the town tramp…Gabi is far from that…im just so-so ok with this story at first but now i think its a failure…finding it odd that she can walk around the Dimera Mansion as Gabi but no one else including staff ever sees her…Stefan isnt exciting and poor Vivian-i need more of her!!!!!

Celia
Guest

You hit the nail on the head, my Jimmy……mental disease or not; I’m not buying it.
And, yes….I have said the same thing….she wanders through the halls with nary a body in sight.
Something elses? She snaps in and out of her craziness almost at will….and the acting is not up to par when Marci gives that confused look to the audience…..no, no, no….me no like!! Me no believe!

im also surprised there arent security cameras in and out of the Dimera mansion…you think there would be the way they dont trust each other!

Celia
Guest

Yeah, my friend…they live within the claws of the DiMera mansion—more like a fortress with peek-a-boo doors and rooms….there should be cameras everywhere….including the toilet, LOL.
Yet, I wouldn’t discount Stefan deactivate the system, Jimmy.

Celia
Guest

You know, Jimmy….I need to give credit where credit is due…..the scene with Andre and Abby, today, was stupendous; I was awed. Now, that was credible acting by Marci….kudos!! Gabigail is exagerated…on purpose? I don’t know! Perhaps, this is how Abby sees Gaby and her sub-conscience tells Abby’s truth…..that her bitterness is alive and well, only stored within her psyche. This could mean she has resented Gabi for a long time….who could blame her? She slept with her husband. Yes, Abby was presumed dead, but, the angst runs deep. Abby’s Laura surfaces as the mediator, but also, as a reminder… Read more »

We all knew a DID story was coming the minute ReRon was hired to write this show, and it sucks just as much as we all knew it would.

I’m still not over the fact that he ruined one of THE most legendary General Hospital characters of all time with this dragonshit writing (yeah, I’m talking about the Luke/Fluke nonsense, and I am the one who first used the name “Fluke”, by the way)

I’m so glad I’m not a dool fan, this storyline alone would make me turn off the show, it was oltl most irritating never ending story which to me also made oltl unwatchable at times thank goodness GH got rid of RC, this type of story fits dool more then it does GH.

Jovin

That fluke story, the way it ultimately ended, was a huge F U to the audience. Early on in the story, savvy viewers guessed that it was actually an embittered Bill Eckert posing as Luke. Theres nothing wrong with that because soap fans are very hard to fool or to surprise! The fact that it was Bill made complete sense within the GH world. The dialogue, referring to Tracy (about what she did to Jenny) made sense. It would have been a good storyline in its own right, exploring what made Bill so evil! But Ron got pissed off that… Read more »

Agreed. Fluke was the worst soap abomination ever. And there were a few more over at GH from Ron as well. But I have to say, I am enjoying Days right now!

Celia

I am enjoying Days, as well, dan……most storylines, as I haven’t in a long while. The multiple personalities could have been intriguing, if the ‘telling’ were not so ‘misplaced’….you know? It came out of nowhere, in order to fill some fantasy….whose? Ron’s? And, to add insult to injury—-baaad acting by Marci and Tyler. Usually such mental disorders and how the afflicted person navigates through it reel me in….this one puts me to sleep because of its childish writing…..someone did not do his homework again…..Abby has been completely turned into an idiotic nonentity…. As I said more times than once, will… Read more »

I think Andre did something to Abigail that reminded her of Ben……maybe he made a strong pass at her….and then she snapped killing Andre/Ben in the process

Carrie

I read a spoiler claiming Andre was trying to rape Abigail.

Celia
Guest
Celia

What a great premise,Christine, and Carrie!!…..now, the combination of those two situations would make so much more sense.
Perhaps, I’m jumping the gun? As it is, I can’t see the story standing on two feet–four, if you count Stefan. He should tell Chad and try to help Abby; not allow her to continue with this calamity–Abby is very dangerous, right now. This is my opinion, of course….however, Chad should know what is going on with his wife, nonetheless.
I detest Stefan even more for keeping this ‘hidden’, as it were….it is neither his right nor his decision.

I’m a fan of DID story lines, but there were a few moments last week when it seemed like Carlavati was actually recycling dialogue from old One Life To Live scripts. It’s still intriguing however, and I think Marci Miller is doing a fine job with it.

I know a lot of people are complaining about RC and his DID storylines but back in the day Kimberly Brady had a alter when Patsy Pease was on so everybody does it RC just likes those stories like Bill Bell liked love triangles with siblings etc. every writer writes with what they feel comfortable with just like Pratt and the disaster goofy stories just like JFP as a producer loved to blow up sets ane replace them with cheap stuff.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I understand, Kay, my friend…..the difference for me would be that Ron is not creating an interesting story for Abby. She does not come off as someone with a mental disorder…..just a nut where I, instinctually, want to shut her up.
And, there’s no comparison to Bill Bell—you said it, Kay….he could create the most engaging love triangles….unforgettable…..

Speak for yourself Satan! I like this storyline! I also know you did not coin the name “Fluke” as most critics called him Fluke! I am actually hoping s few more personalities come out here! Classic soap story here!

Celia

Hi, Phil,
I do not object to this type of storyline, as I am sure Satan does not, either….it is the way it is told. Not believable….different strokes for different folks.
It is an opinion….

I like the story, too, Phil. I think Marci is doing a great job and I also think she’s got Gabby’s mannerisms down pat, from the flicking of her hair to the way she puts her hands on her hips and stands back. And then the transitions…just great work. And when I think of the dialogue and again mannerisms of the different personas she’s taking on it’s even more impressive. (LOL; I’am ALWAYS impressed with all actors everywhere who remember pages of dialogue. Don’t know how they do that!!!!!) And, I’m loving Tyler is this role. I’ve always liked his… Read more »

I have really enjoyed “Gabigail”, she’s stunning, very sexy and really hot with Stefan! I’m hoping when this story is over that Abby is more like her, more sexy and confident. I’m sure Stefan will bring that out in her.

Celia
Guest
Celia

So, blake, what you’re saying is that Gabigail is an exaggerstion of Gabi? If that’s the case, then I can understand ….but, the confusion should be cleared. There’s no line between the two, and now a third? I do agree about Marci’s looks…..she’s beautiful. I had commented on the fact that with her coloring she needed to wear bold colors and darker eye make-up. What a transformation. I hope that, after all is said and done, Abby is restored. I would not be happy if Abby becomes enamored with Stefan and take it to the point of no return. I… Read more »

I have no idea where Ron is taking this story but I’m in for the long haul. DID stories are one of my three favorite soap plots (baby switches and housewife hookers are the other two) so I’m glued to my screen.

Hi, Angel,
What show? I, actually, don’t watch anything on “Bravo”, LOL…..if you mean “Housewives”?…. I don’t even know what network ‘spits’ out that trash….have never watched an episode.
You are too funny, Angel….I like that.

Tony Geary ruined the Fluke storyline by dictating story and his six months vacation schedule. It didn’t help when he injured his back and prolonged the “Fluke” saga beyond recognition.

As fierce as Marci Miller has been portraying these parts, the emergence of Dr. Laura is now reading like a retread of the Viki Lord/Niki Smith/Jean Randolph storyline on One Life To Live in the 1990s.

Yup….that’s why it is so boring for me. Something’s gotta give ( as my Gran is wont to say).
I have to be sooo wowed, Angel, by this story, until I will obliterate all the others, which have been already told, from my mind. We shall see.

I am loving this story and Marci is doing a phenomal job. Luckily for me, I never watched those other soaps and I’m too young to remember the Kim sl, so this is my 1st DID story. I’m even more lucky that it got bestowed on my favorite female character. This story is a total WIN WIN for me. Hats off to the writers and actress. And kudos

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL, Lisa Ann…..I’m 31, but, I do remember Vicki/Nikki ( OLTL), which never really stopped…..it trickled down to her daughter, Jessica. However, I loooooved the continuing story.
So, you do have a point….it was my first DID, where I actually understood and enjoyed. I guess every storyline after that has become mundane for me, merely tolerable….the Abby story needs a twist which has never been used before.

Alan Harding
Guest
Alan Harding

Well, I don’t think the Transitions between the personalities are all that believable, no offense to Marci, but I think they could have been presented better. I blame this on the story boards and also the direction, not necessarily on the actress, although she is no Erika Slezak – plus of course, this kind of thing has been done to death and probably done with more conviction on other shows. Why do I watch the show? That’s an equitable question – I suppose after a day of working around deathly ill people (I work in a Cancer Clinic) I need… Read more »

Well I for one love this story.Marci is playing her roles to perfection Even my best friend loves this story.All to often think just because someone has a mental illness they tend to think we are crazy.which is not the case.Take if from someone who knows.Now I think that Abby may come out of this alright.All she needs is a lot of love and support from her friends.

Celia
Guest

I know,xmascarol…..it is sad for those with DID, or any psychological issue, to be called crazy….the word is used too loosely. But, when Vivian said the word, I did chuckle at the irony….you know?…, calling the kettle black syndrome. I think that those of us who sort of “object” to the storyline, is probably because it has been told ad nauseam. As I said, Abby’s story must have an awesome and mind-spinning twist—-different from all the rest. What I am wondering is; if Abby goes on this trip with Stefan ( which, as we all assume, is an excuse to… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
