After word got out on Wednesday morning that Marci Miller has decided to depart Days of our Lives, multiple outlets are reporting from sources that none other than Kate Mansi is on her way back to the Daytime Emmy Award-winning drama series to reprise the role of Abigail!

Mansi, decided to leave DAYS back at the end of 2016, which prompted an exhaustive and lengthy search for her replacement … enter Marci Miller.

But now that Miller is on her way to pursue other acting endeavors, Mansi, who left the series for the same reason, is now coming home to Salem.

However, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Mansi’s return as Abigail is for a short-term run starting this summer.  Remember, DAYS also tapes six months in advance.

As for Kate, she won an Outstanding Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 2017 at the 44th Annual Daytime Emmys for her performance.

So, excited that Kate Mansi is reportedly coming back to DAYS? Comment below.

Well at least this means the ridiculous DID story will be over, because there’s not a snowball’s chance in my back yard that Kate Mansi could pull that off.

Marci Miller was much better in the role. It’s too bad that most of her airtime on the show was wasted on ReRon’s cookie cutter plotpoint dragonshit writing.


What does ReRon mean? I actually liked this story, because of how phenomenal Marci Miller played it out! It’s funny because everyone said Marci had big shoes to fill, and now I’m saying Kate Mansi has even bigger shoes to refill! Why not just write Abby out now and be done with it! I’m guessing Chad will be with Gabi which makes me sick been there done that! Or he will be with Mimi who is returning soon! Or he will leave as well! Anything but Chad and Gabi! I want Gabi and JJ together! Abby has become my favorite… Read more »


Ok…i guess Ab will be sent away for treatments like Laura until a suitable replacement is found after Mansi’s short stint


or gone for some time like Laura was…


I can hope… that Kate Mansi … MUST follow Marci Miller take.. that SHE be her own woman… and leave the Horton beacon of righteous at the front door. yeah.. when she must feature scenes with Jenny Bear.

Kate herself is an awarded heroine. BACK BONE your chutzpah and the rest will follow

this is huge stuff… the DiMera Mystique is still driving

It sounds like Miller not renewing her contract came as a surprise and since so much of the story is plotted in advance they just need Mansi back temporarily to wrap the story of Abby– after that I predict the character will be written off– maybe recast much later in the future—at least I hope so because Abigail is a legacy character and I would hate for the show to lose her.

There is far too much story line for the character simply because of the DID situation and the actions of each alter, for them to write her off for long. What I can see, with Vivs return from the dead coming soon is Abby or should I say Gabby pregnant by Stephen or Chad, no one knows, and Viv kidnapping her while they recast the actress. Returns with baby Chephen?


oh, Lordy Lord….I am beside myself with euphoria; I don’t know what to do with it. Welcome home, Abby!!…oh, WOW, WOW, WOW!!…I am speechless.

I know. Im so excited to have Kate back. She will always be Abigail to me. Marci was excellent in the role but she simply isn’t Abby.

I’d like to see Kate Mansi remain in the Abby role for a long time.

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.
