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 »

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?

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: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
