THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Sad to see Chad leave but as far as I’m concerned Abby left when Marci Miller did…

Feel the same…After Marci left Abby s only been portrayed by Kate for 3 months tops. ..would ve been much more effective if Marcis contract was negiotated for those extra months..it was her story to wrap up. After watching Camillas Gabi torture Marcis Abigail i wanted too see Marci s version of getting her justice served !

I like both Marci and Kate, but I give Kate the edge, especially of late.

As for Chad, I won’t miss the puttering, sputtering or stuttering.

I wonder if they’ll hail a cab…maybe Chabby know Eugene, the cabbie!

I will not miss these two boring people, alone or together. You are right about Chad. He’s turned into a blithering idiot. He can’t say a full sentence anymore, and is only interested in beating someone up. I also didn’t realize how much I missed Marci, until Kate returned.

Hello, 4ever,
I know what you mean. I used to be soooo into Chad—very disappointing, of late.
And, I love Kate……did not like her at first ( the EJ affair etal—do not appreciate adultery)…..but, I was so sad when she left the show.
On another note–wouldn’t it be fantabulous if the envelope, Leo handed to Eli and Lani, contain pictures of Ari? Let’s just say Gabi found the pics and switched them? Nice fantasy, I guess…sigh!!❤️

I am very sorry to see them go. Kate Mansi and Billy Flynn are very fine actors and I will miss them both so much. But, they are young and I certainly understand their desires to move on to other things. I wish them great success in their future careers.

I thought Billy only agreed to stay another six months after his contract ended. I didn’t know they let him go.

Wow What a surprise.I would rather see Marci anyway.Did you catch the conversation between Eric and Sarah the woman Rex helped awhile ago in the snowstorm?Her name was Marci. I am just so surprised to see them leave,I wonder what is or who is going to be the head story now.For Gods sake please leave Ben alone.I loved Marci better then Kate.I have seen Kate in some Lifetime movies if anyone is interested and she is very good in them,If memory serves me right she even played a bad girl.All I can say I am in shock to bad Marci… Read more »

It’s time for a break with Chad and Abby after the horrible Gabby storyline. Hopefully Kate Mansi or a great recast will bring Abby back.

I think Kate and Billy both outgrew their characters. Just didn’t feel the chemistry between them this time around. Marci and Billy had it. Kate and Billy had it when he first played the role as Chad.

As far as I am concerned Kate is the only good Abby that there ever was or will be. I hated to see them go especially after re-connecting, but this was a good exit. I hope they both come back together…..

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.
