DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wigged Out … Abigail Reveals Another Personality!

Courtesty/NBC

Days of our Lives delivered a shocking Friday cliffhanger! In story, we see Abigail (Marci Miller) having quite the nightmare when she has a bloody hand and a confrontation with Gabi (Camila Banus), where Gabi confesses to murdering Andre. Gasping for air, Abby wakes up.

Next in the episode, viewers see Gabi’s jacket, a brunette wig, and someone sneaking into Stefan’s room. The woman is about to plant the lid of Tony’s urn (the murder weapon) when Stefan (Tyler Christopher) walks in and catches her. When the woman in the wig turns around it’s Abigail.

Abigail is thus revealed to be Andre’s killer, but she also has somehow developed a split personality, “Gabby”!  According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Marci Miller revealed on the plot twist that Stefan first gets wind of: “She (Gabby) is really trying to manipulate him and frame him and take advantage of him, and she’ll use anything: her sexuality, she”ll threaten, she’ll be super dark and devious.”

Now that Stefan has seen Abby holding the murder weapon lid it is only a a matter of time that he realizes it was Abby as  “Gabby” in the security tape.  What will he do with the intel on Abigail/Gabby? Stay tuned!

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati has certainly delivered riveting stories of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) before.  On One Life to Live both Viki (Erika Slezak) and her daughter, Jessica (Bree Williamson) had gut-wrenching revelations that caused them to splinter into multiple personalities.  Before Carlivati was head writer at OLTL, Viki’s battle with mental illness and DID had also been written by other head writers and regimes throughout the series history,

Watch the promo for next week’s Days of our Lives after the jump.  Then let us know what you think of the Abigail twist in the comment section below!

Will wait and see how this story unfolds. Marci Miller is no Erika Slezak. Is Ron doing another repeat storyline? He has really improved DOOL but I know there were alot of people who were happy when he was fired from GH calling him re-Ron. Will wait and see what happens.

Ron wasnt the one that created the Vicki/Nikki DID storyline to begin with, That was created way before his time and in my eyes what he did was nothing new or original, No one on the soaps these days can hold a candle to Erika Slezak. One of the remaining soaps should bring this talented actress back to the daytime community.

one last thing somebody at ABC please bring Jane Elliott back to GH.

You are so right Ric. No one in soaps these days can hold a candle to the incomparable Erika Slezak. I miss her and the rest of the marvelous cast of One Life to Live everyday.

I am surprised Frank has not brought Erika Slezak on GH, at least for a few episodes like e did with Nora. I know he always spoke highly of her on OLTL. I would love to see her in scenes oppisite Roger Howarth again. They were amazing together in scenes as brother and sister, Vicki and Todd. Those were the days when soaps were great!

Agnes Nixon created the Vicki/Niki DID story line, not Ron Carlivati.

I am not sure that I can even watch! This is just not believable for the Abby character and no, Marci Miller is definitely no Erika Slezak. This just doesn’t make sense to me at all. Mental illness does but where are the blackouts, loss of time and disappearing acts that go along with DID? I am not buying it! I was watching OLTL when Victoria was showing initial symptoms (I am old!) and this doesn’t fit. I periodically take a break and now might be a time to do just that!!! Between JJ/Lani/Abby, I am wearing out my FF… Read more »

Celia
Guest

You have a point, Debra….Marci is no Erika….mainly due to experience. Nonetheless, I am very confused with Abby’s split personality. I am no expert, but, if Abby transformed into Gabi as soon as she awakened from her ‘nightmare’, it makes no sense that she would go into the secret place, as Gabi…..her clothing would be readily available. Why dress as Gabi, if she already was Gabi in her head? I don’t know if I am making any sense, and I am, by no means, an expert on mental health, but if she were Gabi, would she not question why she… Read more »

This story is not making any sense but I am going to give it a chance and see what unfolds. You are so right, she is not acting like Gabi, coming on to Stephan. It would make more sense if Abby was just putting on an act to trap Stephan. On OLTL, Vicki played an entire different character, Niki Smith, who was fliratatious and wild. But, by the way Abby woke up in bed, all confused, she is not faking the DID. It just seems dumb to me. Evan Tyler had that look like WTH? Also, the Steve, Kayla, Marlena,… Read more »

Her wardrobe has met the 21Century, as well. I don’t exactly ken what you mean by slutty? LOL…..You think Gabi dresses slutty? Golly Gee, I need to examine my closet closely…..HaHaHa…. Ok, 4ever, you have redeemed yourself with your last comment to Jimh, LOL. ( Joshin’ with you). I guess compared to Abby, Gabi’s clothes may seem a bit risqué?

It always surprised me how much praise is heaped on Ron for recycling story that is far from original. While its something else to see Abigail get a bigger story, yhe fact that Rob will gife her a split personality and that LAME line “im not abigail, im gabby” is lazy. Guaranteed it will be revealed she gained the personality when she was raped by Andre who taunted her with how strong Gabby was compared to her. And thats why she blocked out killing Andre and the split personality. I do have one question… if a person, like Abigail doesnt… Read more »

Marci is soooo good, Phil…..I am just confused. Am I the only one?
After finally ‘seeing’ John’s crazy behavior, and accepting it; I am not buying Abby’s alter-ego.
I will stop overthinking it, and simply enjoy….which I am, anyway, even in the midst of my confusion. LOL.

Maybe it isn’t a true DID storyline, Celia. Vivian might be behind it…

As for Ben’s return, he could be quite busy with Gabigail…

So many possibilities!

Celia
Guest

A@4ever.
Yes, I agree, 4ever. Good one. What if Abby is putting on an act? But, her trance looked authentic….her movements were mechanical…until she was confronted by Stefan. Then, she was a version of a crazy-off-the-wall, Gabi.
As confused as the Chelsea’s ‘movements’ on Y & R, I am.
I don’t care what role is in store for Ben…..I just want to fill my eyes of him. LOL.

Who would do that to any actress? Make up people…….help a lady out…I am so looking forward to what’s ahead…

Ron didn’t create nor write the best Viki DID scenes. There was a reason they referred to her daughter as Messica.

Ron does get credit (or blame depending on how you view it) for Connie’s DID on GH.

Ron didn’t create Jessica’s DID on OLTL — that was Dena Higley.

Ashland22Cripton

And Agnes Nixon (the creator of BOTH of sadly what now WAS of both “One Life to Live” AND “All My Children”), did too (help to create, build, and mold the whole DID with Viki and her daughter Jessica).

Ashland22Cripton

Ashland22Cripton

Jessica had even more personalities than her own respective mother did, though, at least from what I know of…. over the years and such.

Actually, Viki had more alters: Niki Smith, Jean Randolph (the gatekeeper), Tommy, Princess, Tori, and Victor Lord.

Jessica only had Tess, Bess (the gatekeeper),Teen Jess, and Wes.

I feared it was Abigail slipping into mental illness again. I was really hoping R.C. wouldn’t go down that road. I find this predictable and boring. The only thing that would make me happy about this would be if this ISN’T mental illness but, instead, Abby and Andre having faked Andre’s death. I would love it if this is just Abby, Chad and Andre going to great lengths to run Stefan out of their lives.

Boop

Carrie, I didn’t think it was Abby; I thought it was Vivian.

As I said, Boop, I am not convinced it was Abby….it’s too easy. Yet, sometimes the culprit is staring at us right in the face. And, sometimes ‘ they’ want us to see what’s not there. So, I agree with you.
I wonder, as is, in so many cases, if TPTB even know themselves, who it is?

I love multiple personality storylines and couldn’t get enough of OLTL’s Viki/Niki and Jess/Tess. Just wish Abby’s alter was called Gail instead of Gabby.

Gail sounds like a good idea for a possible name for maybe, just maybe if it goes this way…. For another personalities of “Abby”/”Abigail” and / or “Gabi”.

I figured out weeks ago that Abby killed Andre, then later I realized it must’ve been from blacking out or a split personality because they showed the same flashback of Abby and Andre in the hospital talking about Andre understanding mental illness in two episodes. Then when I saw the fake Gabi on video I knew it was Abby. She hadn’t been the same since Andre died, she’s been pretty robotic and montone as opposed to being so cheerful and joking around with Chad. She’d be upset that Andre was dead but do a complete 180. I figured out that… Read more »

Oh my gosh yes I agree with you on this so much! I think the reasons Stefan has known this whole time, though, is because both Staefan and his whackadoodle mother, Vivian, have been in on having it turn out this way (this whole -entire- time).

Meh. If that’s what it takes to keep the show alive, I guess I’ll trudge through it. Watching the scenes of Abby asserting herself with Stephan are just plain tedious. Further, I want to like the scenes with Stephan, but I just don’t. Really, it’s just a matter of waiting around for the scenes with Chandler Massey, Lucas Adams, or Casey Moss — while the rest is just filler. Even if they’re just standing around eating pink donuts, their scenes are still worth waiting for. Gotta admit that I do like Julie butting into everyone’s business — usually with unexpected… Read more »

Anne seems to have forgotten her unexplained hatred for the Horton family, about the time she fell in love with Lucas.

For the record, I think they would make a decent pairing. But the fact that we haven’t seen Anne in months would lead a Devil to believe that ReRon has no interest in writing for her.

4ever DAYS

I’m hoping Anne returns, but the actress is busy, Satan. I saw Lucas and Anne as having great potential. Their scenes together were so much fun. The push and pull between the recovering alcoholic and the party girl would be dramatic and hilarious!

I don’t know – why – RC wouldn’t be interested in the feisty Anne Milbauer… she’s Barbara Streisand , no? who wouldn’t load this , for REEL.

the zany theatrics with so much humor… SHE’S a MUST.

at the very least… have her reporting for Adrienne and Jenny Bear
at the very least… have her bar tending.. and waiting @Dougs Place.

I’m intrigued. I keep prefacing all my comments with “I’m new to the soap” because I can only base my opinions on what I’ve seen/know so far. Still haven’t read the history of the relationships, personalities, scandals, etc. Since they mentioned it over and over that Abby had some mental health issues this seems to fall right into place; perhaps she was pushed by a subliminal urge to get rid of Gaby…since Stefan O. put it in her mind that she was still a threat to her marriage. Though Abby rejected his attempt to freak her out by insinuating that… Read more »

Hey Patrick…LOL…better late than never (to agree with me regarding the overuse of ‘baby”!)

Interesting… As for Marci…I love her acting. Something about her. As for her appearance; I think she’s beautiful with or without makeup. Natural… I haven’t been watching the Olympics but rather can’t wait til they’re over since most of my primetime shows are reruns until the Olympics are done.

I so agree with you. Very happy to see a reappearance of Billie. Of course, I have to wonder what Paul and Will are up to, now that they’ve both been waylaid by John. (Tied up naughtily together somewhere?) It occurs to me that the characters of Paul and Will would actually be blood relatives (not that one really needs to worry about any offspring in this case). Peter Brady is both Paul’s great-grandfather (his grandmother Colleen Brady’s father) as well as Will’s great-great-grandfather (his great-grandfather Shawn Brady’s father). So, technically Paul and Will are second cousins once removed. That’s… Read more »

Interestingly, Paul shares exactly this same level of kinship with Tate, through exactly the same great-grandfather Peter Brady (Theresa Donovan’s great-grandfather). Paul is Tate’s blood relative on BOTH sides of Tate’s family.

Ah, I see the problem: Theresa Donovan and Brady Black are second-cousins, sharing the same great-grandfather Peter Brady. Tate is genetically dooooomed.

A story on mental illness and no insulting comments it is about time.To be honest the minute I saw iit was Abbi I knew right away that she had a spilt personality.I suffer with a mental illness and it can get pretty bad at times.So I can certainly relate to this story.I feel for Chad what is he going to when he find out his wife whoops I mean Gabby killed Andre.and has a spilt personality.The last time I saw a show with a split personality was on One Life to Live.Maybe people will understand more about mental illness now.

Why not fresher storylines? Something other than DID, lying about paternity, covering up Where is romance and maybe intrigue. Instead, we just get edgier evil.

Though at this point I welcome anything that saves us from seeing Lani crying day after day and JJ acting like a fawning fool.

ChandlerFan

Agreed. Marci Miller is growing on me.

Of course, if they REALLY want to show a deranged split personality, they could bring back Kate Mansi for a guest appearance as one of Abby’s personalities. (Roseanne did something like that with the two different actresses who played Becky, in a Patty Duke Show spoof.)

They could flip a coin as to which actress gets to go to Statesville prison as Andre’s murderer.

Maybe this storyline will give the character some much needed oomph. The dark hair definitely adds some oomph to the character. I don’t watch DAYS anymore. But, I like to catch the updates now and then. I’m not a fan of NuAbigail. I don’t see the chemistry between NuAbigail and Chad. I know that they have a following, but, I find her to be rather bland.

The new fake news story with Abby is trashy. Seems the writer of Days has something against anyone being good to the core. Abby is beyound psycho, John is willing to murder his best friend, etc etc. There is good in people and in life. Wake up writers.

Yes, but in fact, if you ask me… There is BOTH good AND bad in EVERYBODY and / or in EVERY character. You have to have one, in order to have the other…. and to be able to TRULY appreciate it, too. Well, at least this is in MY opinion, anyways…. Lolz….

Yes, everyone has both good and bad, but seldom not to the extermre Days writers resort to. If as if they can’t think outside the soap box and resort to the same old same old. At least John had an excuse, although it was a lame one. Hey Days, why can’t Abbys split personality be BECAUSE the real Abby is setting an elaborate scheme to catch the real killer.

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Beloved Kevin Dobson Dead at 77

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

However, The Hollywood Reporter had more clarity and reported that Dobson died Sunday evening in a hospital in Stockton, California, after struggling with an autoimmune deficiency. Arthur Toretzk, Dobson’s rep, shared that with the entertainment news outlet.

The post via Facebook read: “Army Veteran, Veterans Rights Activist, Film and Television Actor Kevin Dobson has passed away. He was 77 Years Old. Condolences to the entire family. Rest In Peace… March 18 1943-September 6 2020.'”   Dobson was the former chairman of the organization.

During his career in primetime, Kevin was also widely known for his work on the crime show, Kojak from 1973 to 1978, playing Detective Bobby Crocker working alongside Telly Savalas.   Earlier in his TV career he appeared on: The Mod SquadEmergency! and Cannon.

Photo: CBS

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

Photo: JPI

In addition, Dobson got his start in daytime soaps, and eventually wound back on them following the ending of ‘Knots’.  He first appeared on NBC’s The Doctors. In 2008, DAYS hired him to play Mickey Horton after two other actors did not work out replacing, the original Mickey,  John Clarke, who retired, In shorter stints, Kevin played Governor Harrison Brooks on One Life to Live in 2003. and Judge Devin Owens on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2006.

He is survived by his wife Susan and his three children, Sean Dobson, Patrick Dobson and Mariah Dobson.

Share you remembrances and condolences in the comment section for Kevin Dobson.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

Photo: JPI

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
