Kate Mansi Hits It Out Of The Park As DAYS Abigail Turns The Tables On Ben!

If you missed Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, its a must-see for the star turn of Kate Mansi as Abigail.  The actress who left the series at the end of December of 2015, is certainly going out with a bang as she shortly will wrap up her on-screen run.  Mansi and the DAYS team should remember this episode come next year’s Daytime Emmys, as her performance contained so many layers, and so many emotional turns that should be in contention.

In story, it was the long-awaited showdown between Abby and serial killer on the loose and Abby’s ex , Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson)! Was this her mind playing tricks on her, or was this reality?  Over the last several weeks, DAYS has been playing up Abigail loosing her grip and imagining Ben!  This time however, it’s looking like the real deal.  When she is confronted with being alone with the criminal, at first Abby concocts a story how Chad (Billy Flynn) has been abusing her and how miserable she is, and what a mistake she made to be with him.   She tells Ben, she wants to be with him.

A very untrusting Ben tells Abby she is his everything, and he even tattooed letters of her name on his knuckles while in prison, so when he makes a fist her name is there!   The creepy doesn’t stop there!  Abby tells Ben, “she needs him” and that Chad is away for the next few hours.   Ben heads upstairs to make love with her, and once in the bedroom Abigail continues what looks to be her seduction of killer Ben, only she reaches into the nighstand and grabs a pair of scissors and stabs in the arm.  She then knocks him out with a blow to the head via a vase.

Perhaps, one of Mansi’s best moments was when her cell phone rang and Chad was on the other line, with blood on her hands and mutli-tasking tying up Ben’s feet and looking for ways to do it, she carries on a conversation with her husband to keep him away from the DiMera mansion so she can torture Ben.

Next, Abby grabs a drink and comes back with some accelerant  in order to set fire to Ben in a turn the tables, turn about his fair play moment!  Ready to make Ben suffer, she throws her drink in his face.  He wakes up the horrific scene he now faces.   In other fantastic note on Mansi’s performance she stands on the bed and jumps up and down and dances around as she throws the accelerant all over the bed and Ben!

Courtesy/NBC

Next Ben, tries one last attempt to throw Abby off her game by toying with her that he is all in her mind right now … he is not real!  To ensure that he is, and that she is no fool, Abby punches his stab wound with her ring hand.

When he yelps, Abby says he sure seems real to her!  Ben doesn’t think Abby will really light him on fire, but she goes for the matchbox and lights a match, just as Chad has come to the mansion with the door locked and the security guard knocked out!

Kudos to Rob Scott Wilson for making Ben so incredibly twisted and to the amazing performance by Kate Mansi!  What did you think of the scenes?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Rob Scott Wilson, this is proof that you can GROW as an actor. He was skin deep in the beginning but as he worked through this role he became his own man. He soared in this role and it was one hell of a ride. I love his character of Ben Weston. He definitely deserves attention, kudos and award noms for this performance. Kate Mansi took this to all the heights that she should have in this turn of events. I have loved watching her blossom as a younger actress. She definitely held it tightly in her hands and crafted a great ride for her viewers. Billy Flynn as Chad is amazing as well. I feel for him because when the story ends with Abby and Ben, he will have very little to feed off of…This was a great story for all involved and I am lifting a glass of bubbly for a job well done. DAYS has no idea what they will lose with both Kate and Rob gone from the canvas. Great job actors. Thank you.

Oh, my, Jimmy! Never have I seen Kate give such a well-executed performance….and Robert….such excellent delivery.
I am still wondering if all this is playing out in Abby’s head. But, how do we explain the knocked-out guard outside? Did Abby do that too? It just does not seem feasible for Abby to have left baby Thomas alone in his carriage alone like that. Besides, Jimmy, babies cry….impossible to stay in that position for too long.

“…I have loved watching her blossom as a younger actress. ”

she stated herself… how… in her last year.. in Salem… she gave her ALL

boy did she ever ! prove me wrong

I am so thankful… that Kate Mansi, Billy Flynn, and Robert Scott Wilson… just flew

just put themselves out their…. REELED

these three underlings… newbies… upstarts… CATAPULTED

Kate Mansi and Billy Flynn were robbed of emmy

it was … speculated… should they have submitted in LEAD

darn tootin… as professionals with; they mined themselves WORTH

When DAYS was transitioning…. ie: for the renewal… who carried
who sparked; who magnified

Abs, Chad, and Ben

they have solidified themselves a place in heart of heart

they were , all three, glaringly overlooked by the emmy panel

the emmy panel…. i’m certain are VETS… need to VOTE and for the win… newbie

her work… in 2016… like in all of the latter half of 2015… has been duly noted..

Kate Mansi : you have forever left a lasting impression

congrats on your 5 years… hard work … it’s a big production that may not be fully realized

ovation

Patrick
Patrick

you know… she was a part of an MF interview… and she was so forthright… in her person… in her wherewithal command

she shared how… the three of them… in that studio… ie: Billy, Rob, and Kate

would rehearse.. and discuss openly their character motivation and how they related to each other and most importantly… just took their own work… for their character places beyond

you dream of this stuff.. DAYS of ole was elevated…

beyond treat

Ms. Abs

I don’t watch Days, Patrick but have caught a couple of episodes with Abby in it.
Is it just me? Or does Kate Mansi have a certain young Scarlett Johanasson essence about her?

Patrick
Patrick

@Harry

I cant explain… if you will… the phenomena… that occurs.. and lightening strikes… between writers and actors

Kate Mansi 4 years prior to her last year… meh?

EXCEPT… when she starred… with Patrick Muldoon… as Austin Reed
it was an all out fest of feast.. of comedic, cougar, and a burgeoning exploration

Kate Mansi roared in her debut

faltered for 3 years… and impaled with EJ and CHAD… more Chad. just took us all by storm.. and STARRED with scripts to boot

I don’t know… like I said… I liken this to.. for example… Billy Miller… knock me out… I love him

all triggers fired… as Billy Abbott

go figure as Jason Quartermaine… ??? w/Sam just further plummets

ie: Kate Mansi… mystique

smiling from ear to ear… grinning and besotted… this yearling… is worth

if she’s ringed in with Scarlett Johansson… that’s an accolade

HAVE you ever… seen… “The Other Boleyn Girl”

tour de force knock me out… this is my favorite movie by Ms. Scarlett

from “wiki”

The Other Boleyn Girl

Reviews were mixed; some said it was a brilliantly claustrophobic look at palace life in Tudor England, while others are troubled by the lack of historical accuracy. It has enjoyed phenomenal success and popularity since its publication.

LOL it ranks right up their with TREAT, camp, and ooh la la

The Queen reigns

Natalie Portman and Scarlet Johansson as sisters… woah

Patrick
Patrick

ps:… on the emmy nomination live show…

Laura Wright herself… said… she’s on the panel

I know.. that Doug Davidson… Paul Williams… Y&R

is also.. ON

just saying… you know…

I really respect what Laura Wright said… on air

that .. there was a time… when these behind the scenes production

TOOK THE TIME… to introduce… newbies

no more… as we are all well “versed” they NOW currently shoot… upwards of 2-3 shows a day

so… it’s CHEER accolade out loud.. when newbies FIRE on all cylinder…

kate Mansi, Billy Flynn… and Robert Scott Wilson… of DAYS

these newbies… by themselves WORKED as a trio to concoct and bring to the screen. their WORK resonated

for all the emmy panelists… new hires… need to be acknowledged

Im waiting to see the bed and Ben burn. Finally Will, Paige, Serena, and Wendy have finally been avenged.

Stephen

Will would *never* want to see a man burned alive! Will had a good heart, and he was devastated when he thought Nick had been killed (by a bash to a head and then drowning), despite the fact Nick had made his life miserable. And then when Nick survived and caused him more grief, he tried to *stop* Sonny, when he thought Sonny was going to shoot Nick! You can’t have it more wrong if you think Will would want someone stabbed and burned alive – even someone who had killed people! Will was very upset when he thought Nick was dead – and he compassionately considered Nick to be someone who had had misfortune in his life. And when Nick was actually killed, he tried to take the blame on himself! Yes I know Will did some violent things as a child – and indeed an anguished Will actually shot someone as a kid, but he learned a huge lesson from that! He saw and felt the consequences of that, the damage on all sides, and he and his loved ones paid dearly for it. He grew up, matured, and learned his lesson. And he learned what it was to have a bullet in his gut! So the adult Will hated violence. And he was compassionate! If Will was there, he’d be stopping Abby, and calling the police, so that official justice could deal with Ben – properly! Karim – your comment is horrific. And it is a symptom of what Days has become – Griffith and Higley have turned the show to darkness and hatred, and it is really quite disturbing that this is appealing to some people. The whole show has become socially immature and backward. That began with the Griffley having the whole town railroad Chad, and then had Will killed in an avalanche of anti-gay messaging, and everyone ignoring the actually obvious suspect – Ben! And this kind of repulsive nonsense has just gone on and on and on during Griffley’s regime. Goodness is important. But this show now showcases hatred and irrationality, and clearly it inspires the same. (Of course bad things happen in soaps and other dramas, but this show has gone over the edge – and it has lost both its balance and its heart and any sensibility at all!). Also, I don’t understand why there isn’t a “V” on the content label, on episodes like this! What is the point of the labeling system, if an episode like this doesn’t come with a “V”. It’s crazy and pointless! I suppose its just another example of production companies being free to do whatever they like – hate-messaging included! As to the performances – I think both KM and RSW do well – but if the writing sucks the result is still going to suck. It is a mark of poor writing when many of the characters are mad and irrational (or brainwashed!), and the plot can only work if they are! And… Read more »

Will was a fighter though. He knew how to throw a punch – and he used to hit the bag at the gym back in the day – and he had a fighting spirit. He was a high school athlete. His uncle was a prize-fighter. He loved sport. (He was captain of the volley ball team back when he was tall!!) Griffley ignored that so that they could have him exterminated in double quick time.

What I am saying though, is that Will would never never never want to see a man stabbed and burnt alive!! Absolutely never! That is so completely opposite to Will. He would have stopped Abby. (I doubt Abby is going to burn Ben, but then I wouldn’t put anything past the real Will-Killers – Higley and Griffith!).

Also Will would be totally against the death penalty. He nearly lost his mom to the death penalty once – I’m sure he does not support it!

Will would understand being in an anguished place like Abby. He would stop her doing the crazy thing.

It is better if the real Will-Killers – Higley and Griffith – get their comeuppance. Never mind their fictional puppet! I’ll be glad to see the back of Higley! That’s what I want to see!

Yes, WAY over the top–and eerily and chillingly TOO close to the infamous case in Texas where the wife tied her husband to the bed, stabbed him repeatedly, dragged his body outside of the house and buried him. At the trial, the (woman) lawyer brought in a bed and re-enacted the horrible scene in the courtroom. TOO MUCH. Too bad the writers took Abby back to being a victim of her fear and emotions after having her be strong when she withstood the horrors Ben inflicted on her. Would love to have seen Abby remain rational and strong–maybe take a well-deserved “vacation” until they found a replacement. Days has gone down a dark, dark road with the murder of Stefano, Ava—and all that simply CRAZY stuff with John Black and the weird “father.” I could go on but I won’t for fear of being sick–like the show has, unfortunately become. Thumbs down!

Hi Stephen. Very well written posts, but I am not sure I understand the mixed messages youre sending out. You take issue with the fact that Will, a fictional character, was a kind soul, and would wish no harm or comeuppance on another character, even a violent murderer. But then you, a real human, go on record saying that two other REAL people, deserve some sort Of comeuppance for scripting the death of Will. Huh? I too am vocal about my displeasure with writing regimes, but I never wish personal harm or comeuppance to the writers! When you give more credit to a slain soap character for being kind than you are doing in real life, something seems wrong there. We all know that when soaps are written well, they can be great!!! But more often than not, the writing is subpar. But that is no reason to wish bad things to befall real people. I have sat through some brutally horrific deaths on soaps…but was never so angry that I publicly wished harm on the writers! Michael Fairman, the awesome owner of this site, provideus fans a forum, and just recently posted rules that should be followed when posting. Personal attacks are no longer appropriate. We all emotionally invest in these characters and stories because they make us think and feel. But at the end of the day, it is just fiction and does not directly impact our lives as real humans.

@ Dylan

I said “I’ll be glad to see the back of Higley! That’s what I want to see!”.

That’s UNAMBIGUOUS. If you check the phrase in a dictionary you will see that it has no connection with violence or harm or hurt whatsoever! It means here that I would like to see Higley gone, and in this case that means gone from Days – which is a perfectly acceptable opinion to express.

Dylan, you sound erudite, and I do not buy at all that you do not understand the very common and basic English phrase of “seeing the back of”. Your post implying that I am wishing violence on a person is extremely unwelcome, profoundly rude, and ugly. And it is slanderous towards me!

Also Dena Higley has fired many actors. Why should she have special protection? Of course I can say I wish her fired – it is a totally reasonable opinion. Her kind of job is only ever a temporary affair. And I think her latest era on the show is terrible – a disaster! They need good head writers desperately. She, imho, isn’t one. I’m not here to discuss that – it’s off topic – I’m here now just to counter the unacceptable slurs you have made against me.

You said I was sending “mixed messages”. This is false. I was unambiguous in my abhorrence of violence. Indeed it was the main thrust of my post, which is what makes your own post so scandalous! And I was very clear about what I wanted to see – Higley gone from Days (just like Griffith).

You admonish me, saying “personal attacks are no longer appropriate” whilst making a personal attack on me by making slurs about me, and slandering me. I think it is the kind of comment that people dislike to read here! People don’t come here to be slandered, or see other people slandered! Please listen to your own advice, and don’t make personal attacks against me, or others, again. This is not the first time you have made a personal attack on me, so your admonishment to me is rich to say the least. I did NOT make a “personal attack”. But you yourself did – against me!

Please do not address my comments again, unless you do so honestly and fairly. I am being polite simply to get this post past moderation.

This was a terrific episode. It was beautiful to watch Abby get revenge on crazy Ben. I loved her expression as she was calmly chatting with Chad on the phone while tying Ben to the bed. Ideally, I’d like to see her start the fire. Crazy Ben shouldn’t be killed. He is crazy after all. I don’t want Abby or Chad or the baby hurt. either. But, it would be great if that mausoleum they live in burned to the ground. That’s no place to bring up a child.

Looks like it’s off to the funny farm for both Abby and Ben. Let’s hope they aren’t sent to the same place. I certainly hope they will recast Abigail. I’d hate for the poor baby to be raised by Chad alone.

Major kudos to Kate Mansi and Rob Scott Wilson for excellent performances. I am truly sorry to see them leave the show.

Stephen

You say “it was beautiful to watch Abby get revenge on crazy Ben”.

It was horrific!

I am sad to see the character to have gone this way. Abby is the Woman Who Lived! And four people lost their lives! But on Friday, it was all about her: Abby, Abby, Abby – and doing to Ben what Ben had done to her. But she lived! And four people died!

Their families have a right to proper official justice – and answers! Abby is acting to deprive them of that. She has no right. And she has no right to assume that the people who were murdered by Ben would want to see him burned alive. And they have more right to make the call as to what happens to Ben than her.

I hope she doesn’t go through with it, and that she settles with scaring Ben. But I am confident that Griffith will make it all as ugly as possible.

We’ll probably be seeing Abby scaring and scarring Ben, Stephen, but I do see your points.

I understand how some viewers could be burning mad about this. I’m not a doctor, but if I were to take a stab at it, I’d say Abby is suffering PTSD.

To Stephen

You do give valid points. I’m not sure what what to think about the scenes involved. I’m just grateful that Chad arrived in time to stop Abby from killing Ben. However, there are a lot of DOOL fans who are more than celebrating. They think what Abby did to Ben as more than poetic justice. There is no doubt in my mind as to what happens next. Ben will be sent somewhere he cannot escape from again. Justin, the DA, will agree under the circumstances that Abby should be placed under psychiatric care in an institution where she can get the help so desperately needed.

Where can you go after that? Days, unfortunately, has taken a page from GH–taking all their characters one (or more!) steps too far.

I found excellence in the acting; sadly, I found no beauty in the dark, morose path Days has taken with Abby and many of the other characters. I agree with nancy. I find no entrtainment in the “pursuit” of mental illness, murder and evil.
As much as the acting is, by far, over the top ( not the teens), I do not understand the point? The introduction of these weirdos, the destruction of Will, the unforgivable ‘misuse’ of Kassie D and Melissa A, did not follow a cohesive or coherent thought for me.
As nancy said, Abby, and the baby could have gone away for an extended amount of time and then re-emerge with a recast.
I hope THE BURNING BED symbolism is all in Abby’s head….where the same idea could apply. She leaves for an institution and comes back brand new.

Mister Media

I agree 100%. Her performance was riveting. She played so many layers and conflicting emotions as the scenes progressed. This was daytime drama at its best. I hope she knows how effective and affecting she was. This was great acting – not just for soaps but for ANY genre.

And I am going to miss Kate Mansi as Abby.

I’ve been a fan of both of the character of Abby and Kate a long time. I do hope they find a recast soon because I haven’t loved a couple like Abby and Chad is so long. That said, I’m going to miss Kate so much in role! I feel like she has just been fantastic over the last year and especially during this story & Friday’s episode. I’m very proud of her, and I hope she wins an Emmy next year!

Kate did an excellent job portraying her part and Rob too, but the scene was not my cup of tea. This kind of constant muder, meanness, revenge is not want I want to keep watching on Days. Very upsetting and distrurbing not the type of escape I want to watch regularly on a soap. I know this is following up /ending the story line of Ben’s viciousness, serial killing, etc., but I keep hoping Days will move in another direction now. Murder after murder. Enough is enough. Let’s move on to more evolved human relationships, drama.

O no, Stephen! Don’t feel that you are alone in thinking this way. You are speaking the truth.
At the risk of sounding repetitious; I do praise the acting, but abhor, just as yourself, the morbid, and basically, ineffective storylines.
I think we would all enjoy seeing a healthy romantic relationship and a dose of good drama, as Rj proposes.

And you guys are all right. I hate watching constant misery and despair and grief and violence and evil. I lost 6 family members in two years, including a cousin, an aunt, two brothers, and my mom. It is not entertaining in real life, and it is not entertainment on the screen. Give me scenes with Kate, Nicole, and Theresa tosaing back martinis and planning business strategy and I am on board! When Days is at its best, it blends romance, family, love, humour, and an outrageous outlandish story or two. But they are balanced!! I do hope Days returns to a more traditional production schedule so they can nip things in the bud that arent working, rather than being powerless to appease fans for 6 months. I thought the lead up to the 50th was great!!!! But I was expecting some sentiment, some heart, some flashbacks, some returning favourites who were popular before 1984, Like Bill Horton, Marie Horton, Jessica Fallon, Liz Chandler, Neil Curtis, etc etc. The show refused to slow down the plot velocity, and didnt reward long term fans at al, deapite what was promised. Rather than seeing Aiden strangling Hope, I would have loved ro have seen Doug, Julie, Marie, Marlena, Roman, etc etc reminiscing and strolling down memory lane. I really long for what soaps used to be, andcould still be. Morality plays where the good guys win in the end! I

@ RJ – How exactly was Abby supposed to have reacted to re-appearance in her home? A psychopath everyone thought was sitting in a prison cell. How exactly was Abby supposed to react when Ben took hold her claiming that he still loved her?

OMG…I was rivetted to Friday’s episode and replayed it immediately as it was all so good! Kudos to Mansi & Wilson as their performance will long be remembered in soap history! They both deserve Emmys for their roles for sure…just amazing and such growth over the arch of the story and their characters. Bravo!

Mary SF

Personally I am hoping this is all in her mind and we are watching Abby’s descent into madness otherwise to see another Horton act no different than a DiMera is painful. I do think most people can be pushed into doing horrible things but in general most decent people like the Horton’s don’t go around killing and torturing people no matter how deserved. If this is all in her mind, then Abby will exit by being checked into an institution for the mentally ill which fits with the history of show since her grandmother had a mental illness– it will give a place for the character to be until they find a recast–but as for the actress, yes she is doing a brilliant job whether this real or not and hopefully she will get an Emmy nod next year.

Stephen
Stephen

Thank you for your comment Mary. I found it painful to watch too. And I agree that it would be better if it was all in Abby’s mind, but I think that’s wishful thinking now. I believe that there is no limit to the horribleness that Griffith and Higley will create on this show – they demonstrated that amply six months ago!

“Michael Fairman”

this thread… is simply…. one of your best

it’s a chilling account of Abs …. “… as her performance contained so many layers ”

from the get go : could she be experiencing… a mind spiral that just goes

she’s protecting her son at all cost
she’s protecting her love for her husband
is she unaware of what she’s doing… it’s a fascinating glimpse of dark, raw emotion, tit for tat, and that overdrive she’s consumed and we’ll find Abs mind not with

is Abs combusting…. coming undone

you take in to account… her family history… can’t wait for the return of Jamie Lyn Bauer, Laura Horton…. talk about a class act … she’s what fascination is all about

this is a fully charged all your senses ON… finale for…. Kate Mansi

she’s upped her character and her person… Superlatives and Kate Mansi… Done!

As I watched Abby pour lighter fluid on Ben, I thought, the writers have ruined another character. Very disappointed in what I saw on screen. I hope she does not go through with it.

Also, pouring lighter fluid like Abby did, she no doubt got some on herself, which is not a good idea.

I think Rob did a great job. He has really improved since he first appeared in Salem. Of course, getting a story helped.

I thought Kate did a good job conveying that Abby did not enjoy kissing Ben and was only doing it to save herself. When Ben went upstairs, I don’t know why Abby didn’t grab Thomas and run, hide, call police. But she obviously already had her endgame in mind.

Maybe it will turn out to be….she did all THAT and Ben wasn’t actually there?

On the edge of my seat. The best dramatic scene I can remember. Sure there is lots, but this was great. Hard to believe Ben used to be on price is right. Hope to see more acting from him. Loved Abbi! Feel bad for who replaces her. She just made it impossible.

Yesterday’s ep was gruesome. Kate did a good acting job.

I was surprised Chad waited so long in calling 911. And did JJ get a promotion when we weren’t looking? Now he’s giving orders. Say what?

I do think these eps were too gruesome and dark and not what I want to see on Days. I am very disappointed in the way Days is going. I think Ted and Betty Corday would be disappointed too.

Mary
Mary

I disagree. Ben callously strangled Serena, Paige and Will then tried to frame Chad for the murders. Ben then kidnapped a very pregnant Abby. He took Abby to motel in the middle of no where and forced her to give birth there. Oh, Ben also kidnapped a woman forced her act as midwife then killed her after. Then Ben took the baby away from Abby. Instead of staying in prison where he belongs Ben escaped to torment Abby once again. Sorry, Ben got exactly what he deserves. Those episodes were gruesome but not as gruesome the others where took lives.

Kate Mansi gave am Emmy winning performance. The actress chosen to replace Kate will have some very big shoes to fill.

While the scene may have been too graphic, violent, and gruesome for my taste, I understand that it may have followed a progression in the storyline, but the issue for me is the broader one that I wish Days would not choose to go down this path so consistently, especially showing such vivid images of Abby stabbing Ben with the scissors , etc. – I realize she needed to do that to incapacitate him, but if Days is trying to attract a younger audience is this what we want the youth to be watching? With that said, there may be an element of attraction to psychological thrillers, and Abby’s decent into mental illness, as this may be a subject worthy of soap opera material, but I hope that Days will take the high road, and be socially responsible and show less violence on all levels especially if they want a younger audience whose minds may be shaped and influenced by what they watch. I hope I am staying within Michael’s guidelines, and not repeating myself too much, but I do feel that this is a discussion that within the soap opera industry that is worth having. Do we want to see love or hate? I realize there may be a place for both as soap opera drama may try to reflect life, but it may depend how it is portrayed, how often, etc.? Well, for me I choose love, and would like to see more of that. Once there is a violent scene I tend not to watch for awhile because it is too disturbing and upsetting. I would not want my teenage nieces and nephew to watch this.

I will say I love the cast, in fact I watch because I get attached to the characters. I think Days has talented writers as I know it is hard work to write and pull together storylines (even if I do not like some of them), and I have a lot of respect for Ken Corday. I marvel how he has kept the show on the air for 50 years despite challenges. I would just ask that have storylines that are not as violent, mean, and ugly as they seem to have had a wave of recently. Focus on relationship and family drama/conflict in a more humane way, so I could watch the show with my teen nieces and nephew. You could bring in a whole new generation.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!

DAYS Stacy Haiduk and Eric Martsolf Talk Kristen & Brady’s Twisted Relationship : The Mask, The Deception, The Sex

Last week on Days of our Lives, Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) was able to get the man she craves in between the sheets.  So, just how did that happen when Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) had no idea she was alive?  Well … he still doesn’t, really.  You see, Kristen returned to Salem disguised as another ex flame of Brady’s, Nicole Walker (who everyone believed died in the warehouse explosion).  And Kristen has been parading around town donning an incredible likeness of Nicole’s face – via a prosthetic mask – and some other tricks to sound and look just like her!

Kristen’s goal is to infiltrate Salem, remind Brady of the love and passion they shared, take over DiMera Enterprises, and who knows what else!  And everyone who stands in her way, better watch out as we have seen! We are speaking to you (the late) Ted, and (once kidnapped) Kate, et al.

Fans of the NBC daytime drama series have followed the tortured relationship between Kristen and Brady for years and through many plots; Kristen was first played and brought to life by Eileen Davidson, and for well over a year now by Stacy Haiduk.  Not only has Haiduk reprised the role of a frustrated, vengeful Kristen, she is also playing at times multiple roles: the wacky and often misunderstood, Susan Banks, Kristen playing Susan, or Kristen pretending to be Sister Mary Moira.

As for Daytime Emmy winner, Eric Martsolf, this latest story arc puts him front and center as viewers watch to see if what Brady senses, and the clues, and the feelings he is having, bring him to the conclusion that he has been duped by Kristen, and that her horrendous scheme – pretending to be Nicole (Arianne Zucker), and dumping Nicole’s longtime love Eric (Greg Vaughan) to be with him have a result that is unexpected or catastrophic!

Michael Fairman TV sat down with Stacy and Eric for this conversation about: all the plot twists, and playing the drama and the humor of the situations they find themselves in as actors in a wild story that only head writer Ron Carlivati could pen and keep the audience on the edge of their seats in the process. Check out this oh-so-fun, direct, and enlightening chat with two of DAYS most shining stars.

Eric, what has it been like working in this part of your storyline; where there’s the character of Kristen in its many forms: Arianne Zucker playing “Nicole” (but it’s really Kristen), Kristen as Susan, and the real Kristen, etc?

ERIC:  It’s been a nightmare Michael.  (Laughs)  I don’t know who I’m sleeping with anymore.  I’m at the point where I go home at night, and I just tug on my wife’s cheek just to make sure that she is not my ex-girlfriend from high school.

When you first heard of this storyline, and that it was going to facilitate how Arianne was going to come back to the show… and that it was supposed to be Kristen in a Nicole Walker prosthetic mask with a voice alternator, what went through your mind?

ERIC:  I think in the back of Ron’s Carlivati’s (head writer, DAYS) mind, he was thinking to himself, “This dude started his soap career on Passions, he’s okay with this kind of thing,” and honestly, nothing surprises me anymore.  When you’re thrown into that supernatural, crazy reality, doesn’t-live-here sort of atmosphere for you first soap gig, you don’t sweat a mask and a voice modulator.  That’s just par for the course.  My biggest problem was the body thing … that Brady is not able to distinguish one body from the other, because I would as Eric.  My God, I know every inch of my wife’s body.  So, it’s difficult to get my head around that, but at the same time, I’m going with the whole “love is blind” thing here. (Laughs)

(Laughs) I was going just going to say that Brady would absolutely know Kristen’s body from how passionate their relationship has been in the past, as well, he would Nicole’s body from his relationship with her.

ERIC:  Since Kristen did finally just succeed – let’s use the word in “seducing” him, and using her wonderful feminine wiles as only Kristen has to get Brady in to bed, there was also another twist.  What plays after that is that he notices the tattoo that’s been removed, and she plays it off as scarring from the fire.  What’s going through his mind as he is making love to Nicole is a “Kristen train”.  He can’t get Kristen out of his mind, and the guilt that he feels about that is horrendous.

Right! Brady is thinking: “Why am I feeling this when I am supposed to be with Nicole!?”

ERIC:  Right!  Brady has been waiting for a relationship for God knows how many years now – at least a successful one.  He is so eager to have this work, even though he has been concerned about how Eric (Greg Vaughan) would feel about this.  In Brady’s mind, Eric is done with Nicole.  He’s good.  He loves Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  This is fair game.  Brady and Nicole have always been close … they’ve been close before … so, for him, it’s, why not give it a fair try?   However, he finds himself now thinking about another woman the whole time.  That’s rough.

Courtesy/NBC

Do you think in the back of his mind, that this whole time, he possibly knew that “Nicole” was Kristen?

ERIC:  Well, you just have to wait.  There will be a reveal eventually, obviously, but until then, let the games play on.

So, once Brady and “Nicole” have sex, he keeps thinking about Kristen?

ERIC:  Constantly!  She just plagues his mind.  I think he’s realizing that his affection for Kristen is anything but dead and is very alive, and I think this is Kristen’s master plan from the very beginning.  She knows that she pervades his soul, and once she does reveal herself, I would guess he would probably be surprised, maybe a little angry, but in the end … you can’t deny what your heart and your body wants, right?

One of my favorite recent scenes had Brady half-naked and Kristen as Susan getting into his room, because she was looking for the MIA Nicole mask she so desperately needed.  She finds herself gawking and lusting after Brady under her disguise, and he tries to remove himself from the situation and says, “Susan, I’m going to get in the shower…”

ERIC:  Yeah! And, “It’s not going to happen, baby.”

What was that like doing that scene?

STACY:  I loved it!  I thought Eric was brilliant in it.  I watched it, and I thought, “Oh, my God!”  (Laughs) It is one of my all-time favorite scenes.

ERIC:  Kristen is a tiger.

STACY:  She is a tiger.  She’s got a goal, and she is going to go after that.  She has obstacles that are going to come in-between her goal, but she will go after whatever she wants.

When Stacy comes in to Brady’s room as Susan, were you not laughing?

ERIC: No!  I thought she was hot. (Laughs)

STACY:  He did … he loved it.  You liked me, didn’t you baby? (Laughs)

ERIC:  I don’t think anybody can deny that Stacy Haiduk’s portrayal of Susan Banks is ridiculously good.  Everything from her delivery … to her facial expressions.  I think it is amazing.  I mean, it is corny, and it is fun, and soaps need characters like that once in a while to lighten the load of the heavy dialogue and the drama.  It’s a welcomed addition.  So, I love playing scenes with Susan.

Eric, you always have been able play the straight-man so well in comedic scenes with impeccable timing,

STACY:  You’re brilliant, Eric.

ERIC:  You guys are being very nice to me.

STACY:  You are.  I remember on the day how much fun we had, but then, seeing it back and the crap that I was giving you, and just the stuff you were giving back was so beautiful, and innocent, and so alive.  It was so funny.

Does Kristen think that now that she finally got Brady into bed that she won … that she got what she wanted … even if she had to don a “Nicole” mask to do it?

STACY:  Well, no, because she still can’t be really Kristen.  I think she is grateful that she gets to be with him.  That’s one of her biggest goals: to be with Brady and she wants to have him fall back in love with her again.  But for her, now it’s all about, “How do I reveal myself so that he doesn’t get scared away?”  That’s the toughest part for her.  Kristen’s love is so deep that it goes beyond this mask.  So, how is it going to be when he sees her?   Is he going to freak out?  What’s going to happen?

ERIC:  Did you think Kristen would be a little pissed off and think, “Oh my God.  He did go for Nicole?”

STACY:  Yes!  I do, because she’s like, “Finally, I got him!  But wait a minute … did I get him because I was Nicole … or because I was Kristen?”  As Kristen, she always believes there is something deeper between them and a deep connection.  That remains a driving force to her.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  That’s why I love these characters so much, because of you and the history of Kristen with Brady.  She’s always wanted him as much as he has wanted her.  She’s always wanted to be loved.

STACY:  Yes … and very much so.

ERIC:  Kristen had always wanted to be a part of the DiMera Empire, just as Brady has always wanted to be a part of the Kiriakis Empire, and they’ve always wanted love.  They’ve never had it.  They believe in the back of their minds that anything is attainable.  So, I can see why Kristen would just forgo the Nicole disguise and just go, “He wants me.”

STACY:  Kristen wants to believe that Brady knows it.  She says to herself, “He knows it’s me inside and behind the mask.  When he finds out, he will fall back in love with me.”

Now that she actually had sex with Brady, wouldn’t that make Kristen even more insatiable to be with him? Like, “I’ve got to have him!?”

STACY:  The fear is still .. what happens she takes this mask off?  She always says, “I’ll reveal myself, but I have to do it slowly when it is the right time.”  I think there is that built up frustration now for her, absolutely!

Arianne Zucker really has Stacy’s mannerisms down as Kristen.  It really comes into in scenes where “Nicole” goes off on someone or loses her temper.  Eric, you have worked with Arianne for years on this show.  What do you think about her performances in this storyline?

ERIC:  I have worked with Ari over the years, and I have enjoyed it a lot.  Ari did do her homework.  She did study Stacy’s tape, and she watched her mannerisms, and she took it very seriously.  I know that because she is a hard worker, as much as a goofball as she is, she does work hard, and she wanted it to be good.  I think my favorite parts were the Kristen meltdowns.  You have to understand though; Stacy and Ari get along very well!  They’re kind of two peas in a pod.  So, it wasn’t a big stretch for her to take on how Stacy would play those types of scenes.  They’re both animated, they’re both wild people by nature, and so, it was a good fit.  It was a smart idea from the writers.

STACY:  It was a good fit!

ERIC:  I’ve been out with the two of them, and it’s hard to tell the two of them apart. (Laughs)

STACY:  We are just like two cuddly bunnies.

ERIC:  They’re like flirting with each other, and hugging each other.  You find yourself thinking, “Are they going to start ordering the same food at the same time?  This is getting weird. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

In the recent scene that aired; where Kristen as “Nicole” turns off the light while having sex with Brady, is she worried her plan will now go awry?

STACY:  Yes.  I think she is worried about her body because it is burned.  You know, how they take a tattoo off, and it’s as painful as can be.  Not that I’ve had that done personally.  I like my tats, but I hear it is painful.  So, in the storyline, the burn is that pain that she has and the tattoo. There’s a part of her that thinks,  she has to cover it up, and turn the lights down low.

ERIC:  “Nicole” is sleeping, and Brady is rubbing his hands over her shoulder and touching her body, and as he goes over the burn marks.  He sees a flash of the tattoo!  That is a pivotal moment when he starts to put some pieces together.   He thinks, “Woah! That’s exactly where that tattoo was.”  It’s a slow little rollercoaster ride.

In the past, Kristen then played by Eileen Davidson, drugged and raped Father Eric.  Stacy, did you ever see that story arc?  Literally the sex scene is playing on the screen at Kristen’s wedding to Brady and then all hell breaks loose.  This to say Kristen is notorious for the ways and the lengths she goes to get her men into bed.

STACY:  Yes! I saw her Eileen do those scenes.

ERIC:  You also saw how close Kristen and Brady were to their dream, to their happiness, their goal, which was they were going to marry each other.  Brady is looking upon his loved ones in this town and thinking, “I know what you all think of her, but I’m going to show you our love on this screen, and once you see the connection that we have here as a couple, you all are going to be convinced that we belong together as well.  This is the happiest day of my life,” and the screen comes up and it’s his brother banging Kristen instead.

Marlena (Deidre Hall) played the wrong DVD!

STACY:  It was so good.  See, I try to find as much info as I can on the character’s past, because all of the time I’m trying to find where these characters have been in their dark and twisted past.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  You’re putting your own stamp on Kristen.  You got a direct call from DAYS casting department, didn’t you … when they were recasting the role?

STACY:  Yes.  You have to understand, I had two really separate characters to play when I was on Y&R.  One was a doctor, and one was this crazy passionate, wild, little minx.

ERIC:  I will say to find the wild and the beauty in one package is not easy in any town, yet alone Los Angeles.  I’m glad they called you, because you have that.  You have that villainous nature, but you also are able to show a vulnerable side to Kristen that is going to be a lot of fun and interesting to see.

Stacy is one of those people that will leap off of the screen at you and you will remember her.  She is one actress that will have fans talking about their work, like when you played crazy Patty Williams on Y&R.  The audience was on the edge of their seats going, “Oh, my God!  What is Patty going to do next?”

STACY:  I never knew what she was going to do!

Photo: JPI

Eric, has Stacy come to you at any point where she been overwhelmed by the task at hand; playing Susan while playing Kristen, etc, and the two of you have a moment where you work through some of the challenges of complex scenes  … and ones where she is playing multiple characters?

ERIC:  We’ve had many moments  to speak of.

STACY:  I always come into Eric’s room, and am like, “I’m scared!”

ERIC:  It’s funny you mention it.  We have had some very emotional scenes, and Stacy – who cares so damn much about this job and portraying this character correctly – that she gets a little overwhelmed, and the material that they give her is overwhelming for any anybody on any level.  I have looked at her in the eyes, and said, “You’ve got this gig.  You are this character.  You are knocking it out of the park.  Just do it.  Just be you.”   I can’t wait for people to see some of the stuff we have shot recently and have been doing.

Photo: JPI

Stacy, do you think Kristen can be redeemed? Many characters on daytime … and on DAYS … have done horrible things and later turned over a new leaf.

STACY:  The thing is that villains are bad and all that other crap, but they’ve got a lot of stuff going on inside and insecurities, and they’ve got a heart.  I’m sorry, the villain with a heart of gold, can be very  true.  I never see villains (and I play them a lot) as bad.  You have to find where it comes from … how far does this go … where did that little seed change … and what made them go into the dark, but also, where is the good?  You want to bring the good to it, too.

ERIC:  Let’s face it!  Star Wars is all about Darth Vader and how he became that because it’s intriguing.

Because of the pace in which DAYS tapes its episodes; do the two of you find time to run lines together before you go hit the set?

ERIC:  We are running out of time to run lines.  It’s pretty wild.  Funnily enough, I was recently filming a movie and I was so underwhelmed at the pace of everything.  I’ve gotten so accustomed to moving at this militant style, that as hard as it is, it is preferable to me now.  I almost like it because you don’t have time to overthink what you are going to do, and you end up getting more visceral and natural reactions to the material.  You can overthink a scene, and you can come to a wrong performance that way.  When you burn your fingers on a hot stove, that’s the most natural reaction you are going to get.  You can’t have ten minutes to think about how you are going to scream about that pain.

Photo: JPI

But, would you like the pace of shooting the show to be a bit slower?

STACY:  I would like to, but I do think sometimes just jumping in, and going and seeing what happens is great.  I love that.  I do appreciate that.

ERIC:  It’s scary.

STACY:  It is scary.  I would love if we would get to do a rehearsal and then two takes just to see, and then they can mix  together what happens.  Sometimes I am hard on myself as an actress.  I’ve always been.  It’s that jumping in when you only get to do one take.  You have to just give it everything you’ve got.

ERIC:  You can have a second take.  Want me to give you a little secret?  All you have to do is screw up your last line.

STACY:  I can’t do that.   I don’t even need it to be perfect because nothing is perfect.  It doesn’t matter what I’ve done if I sometimes don’t feel it.  I need to feel it when I’m on that set.  I need to feel something because when I shut down, I close myself off.  It’s like an athlete who has just got to  train as hard as they can to reach their goal.

ERIC:  You’re an Olympic swimmer!

STACY:  You’ve got to do it as hard as you can.  You practice, and you practice, and you practice, and you practice, so that when you come to that day, you do the best you can, but sometimes you are disappointed because you didn’t get that one last thing you had hoped for.

Courtesy/NBC

How do you view what happened to Eric with Kristen, who disguised as Nicole, tricked Brady into bed with her?  Some fans commented that that they thought it was akin to a rape.

ERIC:  No, I would disagree with that theory.  I believe there is a high degree of deception in this, but there is a willingness on behalf of Brady.  He’s not drugged.  He’s not being forced to do anything.  Deception, yes.  Rape, no.

Stacy, what do you think?

STACY:  Total deception.  There is no rape.  There is absolutely no rape.  These are willing participants; he just doesn’t know exactly who he is dealing with.

ERIC:  I appreciate the context of how somebody could construe that, and the seriousness of the matter.  I don’t think it really has a place in this particular storyline.

Do you guys think that Brady and Kristen are each other’s star-crossed lovers in a weird, twisted, bizarre way?

ERIC:  I don’t know.  I think they’re magnetism can’t be denied.  I think the hurdles that they’ve jumped through are astronomical.  Will they end up together in the end?  Who knows!  Will there ever be an end?  Who knows!  It’s definitely been one of, if not the most, in-depth relationships Brady has ever had.

Photo: JPI

And intense!

ERIC:  Yeah.  They’ve just gone through so much to be together, and when you do that, anybody who is married knows that, that’s where the good stuff is; the wars that you win together and the battles that you go through.  When you come out of the war, and you’re still together, that’s the bond.  That’s what lasts.

What would Kristen do if she couldn’t have Brady in the end?  Would she find a new obsession?  What if she could not nab her man?

STACY:  Wow!  Hmmm. (Laughs)  She’s going to get her man.  She wants her man.  She wouldn’t settle.  She’d keep fighting.  I would say to her, “Kristen, keep fighting the good fight.”

So, do you think Kristen will reveal herself to Brady sooner than later? Will Brady figure out what Kristen has been doing to get to him?  Will Brady turn Kristen away if he knew she was alive and back in action  … or would he fall back into her arms?

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
