Later in a dressing room, segment, Camila Banus (Gabi) and Freddie Smith (Sonny)  chat about working on the show, with each other, and some other fun tidbits as they catch up.  And as viewers know, Gabi and Sonny, as well as Will (Chandler Massey) all have a unique and special relationship with one another.

I love this actor, but certainly not the brain washed amnesiac he’s portraying now. I would rather see him with anyone but Eve. She’s as crazy as Claire, and worse, because she is helping Claire to get away with attempted murder, so as to frame Ben.

Hi, Violet, I hope this comment doesn’t become a “double”— I always accidentally post before I’m done… I do agree with you about Jack….except that I can tolerate Eve. ( As an evil “entity” ( who does display human characteristics, at times) as she is, I like her. The role is soooo her!! Kassie is a fave of mine in any situation. Jack, on the other hand, is getting on my nerves—I wish he could speak without opening his mouth…LOL. The writers should not have taken this path of turning him into Eve’s puppet. I understand he has amnesia; however,… Read more »

Hi Celia OMG, this show is driving me crazy! I don’t know which SL is the worst. You pick one, and I’ll agree, ha. I record the shows, than start watching after Days has been on about 30 min. It seems that all I do lately is FF. Talk about insulting! We are watching Kirsten pretending to be Nicole, while Ari is pretending to be Kriston pretending to be Nicole. I can only see it the way it is, not in the mode they are trying to sell us. I am hoping that Holly is with her mom. Zander keeps… Read more »

I agree, Miss Violet—-I can’t get into any storylines…..they all lack the main ingredient: that is; viability!! Frenchie? I cannot digest this unappealing slick, mumbling fumbler, with an domineering nose and thin lips. I think I said this before—-he reminds me of greasy, Dishonest John ( Beany and Cecil cartoon) of old!! My kids love watching episodes on YouTube. Sometimes I watch eith them..HaHa…. I have never liked Hope either. So, I hope they ‘fall’ as one…. I am not a fan of men sporting slicked-back hair. Oh, oh…..Violet—-speaking of hair? Did you notice how much of it Michael Baldwin… Read more »

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
