DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Who Killed Abigail?

It’s the end of Chabby! Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it the beginning of a murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera.

In story, with several people wanting Abigail Deveraux DiMera dead, it looks like someone stabbed her from the final moments of the episode, when Chad (Billy Flynn) comes upon his wife, when he returns home from a movie with their kids.  Chad finds Abby in their bed, bleeding and non-responsive. DAYS has teased the death of character for a few months now, and everyone learned it is Abigail, played by Lead Actress Daytime Emmy-nominee, Marci Miller, who has exited the series.

Now, the mystery begins … whodunit? Is it a vengefulLeo (Greg Rikaart), who was brandishing a knife after his call with Gwen (Emily O’Brien)? Could it be Gwen herself who called “someone” while the prison guard nodded off for a nap?  Somehow, made it out of prison and back in time and covered her tracks.  Could it be a drunken Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), who ruined his sobriety overcome with the knowledge that Chad told Abby, that he was the one who kidnapped Sami – a secret he doesn’t want to come out. Could it possibly be Kate (Lauren Koslow), who wanted to protect her son, Lucas’ secret, and went to shut Abby up … or could it be someone else?

DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati spoke to Soap Opera Digest on their latest issue on newsstands now, about the decision to kill-off the character of Abigail, expressing: “It was mostly for a practical reason because Marci was not going to be available to us full-time on contract and it made it challenging to tell story for Chad and Abigail.  So we didn’t really have the option to have Abigail around, and then that always becomes a problem when one-half of a couple is not going to be available to you. What’s the solution at that point?”

In addition, it appears that bringing back Kate Mansi to the role, was not going to solve the issue the show was faced with.  Carlivati explained: “Kate has been willing to come back, but may not necessarily want to come back on contract, so you risk being in the exact same position that then Kate leaves and what do we do? Then the option would be to recast yet again with someone who maybe is willing to be here on a more permanent basis, but then you’re dealing with a new face. We’ve been very lucky in recasting Abigail, but you don’t always know if that’s going to work. So ultimately, we decided to kill the character.”

But as Days of our Lives fans know, does anyone really stay “dead” dead in Salem?  The head scribe shared on that point: “We decided to do it (kill Abigail) knowing that we’re not saying it’s not a permanent death, but there is always that possibility that death is not permanent, especially on a soap opera and especially in Salem, so you feel that maybe you’re not closing off the future of that character forever. That said, this is not going to be an instance of the car going off the cliff and you don’t see the person again. This is going to feel permanent and we wrote it as permanent.”

So, who do you think will wind up being the culprit who murdered Abigail? What do you think about the decision to take the character off the canvas, with what looks like for good? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below. But first, check out the promo for next week’s episodes of DAYS and the returns of Cady McClain and Matthew Ashford as Jennifer and Jack who will grieve the loss of their daughter.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abigail Reveals Gwen’s Deception at her Wedding to Xander, But Gwen Drops A Bombshell

Look like Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) finally got what’s coming to her, or at least for now.  On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives it was wedding couple number two who took front and center stage.

Now, Xander (Paul Telfer) and Gwen were ready to start their nuptials, following the disaster of the first couple’s attempt at tying the knot (Leo and Craig) and that coming apart at the seams.

However, this wedding was not meant to be either, thanks to Abigail (Marci Miller) having the ammo (thank to a plea deal for Ava Vitali) to bring Gwen’s heinous plot out in the open, publicly.  That included: Gwen’s plans to nab Xander for herself and keep his true love, Sarah, away from him by any means possible as all was revealed to the groom and Gwen’s father, Jack (Matthew Ashford).  From kidnapping, drugging Sarah, wearing masks, being an accomplice to Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk) schemes etc, etc, Abigail had the quite the dirt on her half-sister.

In the end, Xander walks out on Gwen, Jack practically disowns her, Abigail and Jennifer stand by and take Gwen’s insults knowing they have finally one-upped her, and Gwen is in a puddle of tears in her wedding dress.

Just then, Gwen gets one more visitor, Rafe (Galen Gering)! He comes to cuff-her and bring her down to the police station for her crimes.  Before she leaves, she angrily gets close to Abigail and whispers in her ear that she purposely killed her grandmother! That means that Gwen killed Laura Horton in cold blood.  What will Abigail do with his information?

Emily O’ Brien has been consistently knocking it out of the park playing all the levels of Gwen, while Marci Miller was fierce with her controlled and contained payback after all Gwen has put Abigail through. Perhaps, there is yet another knock-down drag-out fight to go down between the two in the near future?  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of Abigail’s comeuppance of Gwen for her crimes? Are you happy Xander walked out on her? What do you think will happen next involving the information on Gwen murdering Laura Horton? Comment below.
