DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Whitley Has a Complete Psychotic Break; Abe is Rescued

Courtesy/Peacock

Kim Coles (Whitley) has been showing up for this storyline on Days of our Lives, and has been the best part of it, and nowhere was that more noticeable than on Monday’s July 24th episode.

In story, while Marlena (Deidre Hall) tells Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) that she now remembers Whitley was a patient of hers while she was possessed by the Devil (one of the beats of this story we don’t like), she tries to call the nurse concerned after mounting evidence points to Whitley having abducted Abe (James Reynolds).

At Whitley’s apartment, things take a deadly turn when she wheels out the damaged space heater she has kept all this time that killed her husband and their three cats. She begins to share with Abe how sad she was about the day she left “him” all alone when tragedy struck.

Whitley believes now God has given her a second chance to make sure ‘he’ is never alone. At this point, she turns on the gas with the intent of killing herself along with Abe from the carbon monoxide. Whitley tells a sedated and drugged Abe they are just going to rest together on the couch. At this point, it’s more than clear that Whitley is going in and out of reality and having a psychotic break.

Marlena has made her way to Whitley’s apartment and found the front door open.  She walks in on the scene and Whitley grabs an umbrella to fend her off, calling Marlena, “Charlemagne”, the fictitious character in Body and Soul. While Whitley is going off the rails, Jada (Ella Cantu) and Rafe (Galen Gering) show up.  Whitley is ready to take a lighter and ignite the apartment, but Abe grabs her hand and it calms her down. She the lighter to Rafe.

Later, Rafe airs out the the apartment, while Whitley rocks in a chair with her stuffed cats. Jada tells Whitley she will get the help she needs and reads her rights. Whitley is non-reactive.

At University hospital, a rescued Abe is taken in by wheelchair and sees Paulina (Jackee Harry), Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Eli (Lamon Archey) but has no idea who anyone is.

One final note: When Lani (Sal Stowers) was reunited with Eli at the hospital (after surviving being drugged by Whitley), the chemistry between ‘Elani’ was still palpable. Here’s hoping DAYS writes another story arc that will feature Sal and Lamon, so they will want to make a return to the streaming soap opera.

Thank unholiness that this ridiculous storyline is finally wrapping up.

And memo to ReRon….

Don’t blame ME when your stories don’t make sense. Saying my occupation of Marlena led to this… that’s really weak, dude.

I’ve enjoyed this storyline. Kim did a great job!
