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

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.

They are the only reason to even watch the show and I will try to find something else to do now.I will miss them both so much.

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 didnt just stay for the three final months.IN any case good luck to them both in whatever they decide to do.

Adam

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.

Dionbysus

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.

Carol

For you Marci Miller fans check her out in American Fable you can rent it at Netflix.It looks to be a good movie

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: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
