On Friday, Camila Banus taped her final episode of Days of our Lives as Gabi Hernandez!  The actress who had announced that she was leaving in January of 2014 several months ago, has been front and center in the storyline involving the “murder” of Nick Fallon (Blake Berris) of late!

Camila on her Twitter account prior to heading to the studio Friday morning, on Thursday night said:  “Tomorrow is my last day shooting as my beloved character Gaby! Thought this photo was dramatic enough. Everyone wish me luck on my last day of taping as Gaby on Days of our lives.”  Earlier in the week she tweeted, “Saying hello from Gaby’s bedroom ! This is my last week on set and it’s feeling sad ): but I know I know an exciting time is coming (: will you miss gaby ??)”

Behind the scenes yesterday, Camila’s on-screen brother, Galen Gering (Rafe) tweeted, “Sad day sis. Sad day. Wuv u!”  And Lauren Koslow took a photo for Twitter featuring very close pals, Kate Mansi and Camila which related:  “Our beautiful girls @camilabanus &@KateMansi share a hug & some very emotional scenes today! #days””

Are you sad to know Camila had finished her time in Salem as Gabi?  How do you think the character will eventually be written-out when we see her depart in four months or so? (Remember DAYS tapes far in advance)  Let us know!

I will miss Gabby! she was a great actress on the show very beautiful looking lady. but I guess they didn’t have enough story for her she will be missed very much. as far as the way of her leaving I think probably she gets evrrything out in the open about Nicks murder but does not go to jail because he tried to rape her self defense. I think after Sonny and William get married there will be no reason for her to stay she probably leave with her on screen daughter and go far away.

I think Gabi will have a breakdown because of ‘Nick’ and will be taken to a mental hospital…Will and Sonny will get custody of the baby!

@jimh you know good and well from that promo that it’s NICK who walks into that church. Gabi has to have some sort of mental break or ONCE AGAIN Sami is in a cell and this time with Kate. I don’t see that happening. But Nick may just force her to go to New York with him to keep his silence. That’s what I see happening.

Honestly, i didnt see any promo…if it was at the end Fri i didnt see it…was at Dr. Office so i dint see Days end fri.

After your reply i just went on utube and agree its most likely Nick…however, whats with the ‘you know perfectly well from the promo its Nick’ got to do with my comments whether i seen it or not?

No sinister motive @jimh I naturally assumed you saw the video to the right side of the post and had watched it. I read the blog watched the video and posted. Therefor i was just making a general remark in the fact that as long time avid viewers of soaps we basically can figure out ALL surprising moments at this juncture in our viewing. No need to channel Victor Kiriakis (:

KEEP DREAMING, if you think Gabby will go into a Mental home after having a breakdown, NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!! IF ANYTHING, Sony should go to PRISON for killing Nick, and Will should raise his DAUGHTER, PERIOD!!!

I thought that exactly, that Gabi will be put away because of a breakdown and Sonny and Will will raise Ariana. I think the insanity plea will happen because of Nick’s attempt to rape her. By Gabbi, loved you. You played a wonderful role.

I wish her all the best in her career. I like her, but will not miss the character of Gabi one bit. She was never so much a character as a plot device. First she was a prop for Rafe as the writers attempted to give him a family (AKA…a purpose…a reason for being on our screens). Her and Will had a promising love story, but then after months of Will being this awesome boyfriend, the writers suddenly and inexplicably made him gay. Then she became a loose cannon near psycho as she stalked herself to get Chad’s attention. Then… Read more »

Yes, that is a huge problem in the genre these days, daytime and primetime as well. Have to say though, I always enjoy Days when Gabby was onscreen even though I do agree with your assessment of how she fit into the canvas. She has been one of my DOOL favorites because I also liked her with Nick and enjoyed their warped love story too.

Johnny
Guest

Hey! Yeah…I liked her and Nick too. I don’t where why or how DAYS went off the rails with Nick, but they did. This kid is a Horton legacy character. He came on full of geeky promise, awkward charm, and everyone loved him. somewhere along the way, they turned him into some kind of a psycho. I would say drugs and being raped in prison are MORE than enough of a reason to cause a breakdown, and he is an easily redeemable character, should they choose to do that. Lord knows much worse characters on soaps have been redeemed and… Read more »

I agree with both of you about Nick and Gabby. I liked them together and couldn’t understand why after what he had gone through in prison they turned him into a psycho. I saw such great potential for future s/l’s with the two of them and thought they could have easily redeemed his character. I think of all the other characters on the show who have done far worse then Nick and he was treated like scum by almost everyone with no regards to what had happened to him while being in prison. I’m a newer viewer to this soap,… Read more »

Mixed feelings– Gabby was never my favorite character– and it wasn’t the actress fault, just never felt the character was a good fit for the show. She wasn’t the heroine type, like a Melanie was and although she did bad things– she didn’t have the strength of a bad girl– like a Theresa, so for me the character was wishy-washy. That said I think Camila did a good job with the character– so I wish her well on her future endeavors. Personally I like to see Gabby have some kind of mental breakdown and end up having to go institution.… Read more »

We know that Nick knew about Gabi being behind the Daysaster. I hope emotional scenes btw Camilla B and Kate M – have to do with a confrontation and proper blame for death of Jack.

Hoping for a real twister with whom Nick has been working. Scurry back Blake Berris as Nick.

Godspeed Camilla.

I liked Gabby and loved her with Rafe. They really did seem like a real sister and brother. It probably won’t happen, but I would like to see her in a situation that allows her to take baby Ari with her. I can’t imagine her leaving without her unless something bad happens. I don’t want to see anything bad happen. She hit Nick in self defense and Kate and Sami were more instrumental in how to cover it up. Can’t see how just Gabby would be blamed. I guess she could have a mental breakdown, but then she wouldn’t have… Read more »

Yes I will miss Camila as Gabby! I think she’s become a terrfic actress. Too many great actors and actresses at the same time! What will this do to Days of Our Lives? I have been watching since1970! There have been some story lines I was appaled with but for the most part I have enjoyed for years. Please do not let the show go!

Please, please please get rid of that awful Nick Fallon. I can’t stand looking at him. Let him go when Gabi leaves.

Write more story lines with Hope and Aiden. Great chemistry between the two. Bo is obviously not coming back and his character won’t be recast. So, get these two together.

Also, get rid of that annoying Jordan. Put Rafe and Kate back together. They have GREAT chemistry.

I fear that you and I are in the minority! I, too, want Nick gone and the one way to ensure he stays gone, is to kill him off. I like Hope and Aiden as a couple, and I just hate the Jordan character; Rafe and Kate were one of my favorite couplings on this show . . . they ooze chemistry. While they’re at it, they can get rid of Jennifer, too; she is the whimpiest, most sullen, judgemental person on the show! If I were Daniel, I would have kicked her to the curb with all of her… Read more »

I don’t like Nick. He can go. Get rid of Jordan, also. She’s a boring actress and her storyline is getting old. I loved the old Will – Chandler Massey. Good actor. Please get Brady some help! His drinking is getting old, too. I will be sorry to see Allison Sweeney go, even though she is so self-centered I could barf. Great actress!

Miss Nick. He brought spunk to the show, everyone else just calls it in, boring. I dvr the show but end up fastforwarding thru most of it. Gotta see what the fall brings, or I am out. Not much substance anymore. Miss Kristen the most. Love/hate relationship to her, but she was very entertaining. Hate the drug story for Brady. Love him but not the drugs -gives the wrong message to viewers. Not into Marlaina either, bad actress lately. Gonna miss EJ and Sami!! They hold the show together. Rafe needs to move on – more spunky than the new… Read more »

I still think Sami killed Nick. I know both Allison Sweeney and Camila are leaving the show, but it’s more in Sami’s character to have killed someone. Plus it gives her an easy way back into DOOL if she ever decides to come back. And….is Nick really dead???? hmmmm

I knew Gabi killed Nick. So obvious. I’ve been watching Days since 1972 and I know how the writers think. But I have to say Camila Banus did an amazing job with Gabi’s confession this week. Having all of her make-up washed off between the tears and runny nose, plus her hair a mess and all of those highly emotional lines…she should win an award for her portrayal of a young mother looking at a lengthy prison sentence and life away from her one year old daughter. Was totally believable. Great job, Camila!!!

You are one of my favorite characters on the show and even tho u are leaving the show I hope that one day u do return. One thing is for sure Days Of Our Lives is losing a very special lady.

Breaking News

Melissa Reeves Has NOT Been Fired From Days of our Lives

A technical error caused a bit of a firestorm on Monday night, and a retraction early Tuesday morning when an item appeared most notably on TV Line’s partner’s feed, Yahoo News, that had a headline stating that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) had been fired from Days of our Lives.

If site visitors and readers looked closely, there were actually two versions of the opening line that appeared.  One of which was noting that Reeves was apologizing for “catching heat” from co-stars and fans for backing a post by Candace Owens that was Anti-Black Lives Matter, and the other one that she was fired from the NBC soap opera.

TV Line early Monday morning issued this statement to clarify what happened and confirmed that Reeves had NOT been fired from DAYS: “Due to technical error, a story was briefly published on TVLine on Monday evening — and has since surfaced on several of our partner feeds, most notably Yahoo — that erroneously claims Days of Our Lives has fired Melissa Reeves. The story is false. Melissa Reeves has not been fired from Days of Our Lives. In the meantime, we apologize for the error.”

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

Photo: JPI

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

Did you love Wally’s performance this week on Days? Did you reach for the hankies? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.
