Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

Courtesy/NBC

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

The only thing that Abigail has ever really done that could make somebody hold a grudge would be killing Andre DiMera. So what if Gwen was Andre’s long lost daughter… which is how she knew the name of Dr. Rolf, and had to track him down.

Of course this would be a little twisted considering Gwen has already been with Andre’s brother Jake (though admittedly she didn’t know he was at the time they met) and is now trying to get with his other brother Chad.

Andre isn’t a bio DeMera. Jake is a bio DeMera

Andre became Stefano’s son about 666 rewrites ago. Not that it was ever logical that he & Tony could look like identical twins and NOT have the same parents in the first place.

Is Gwen really his daughter? Andre’s not admitting to it when I ask him. But she sure seems drawn to Stefano’s portrait… like only a family member could.

Andre’s daughter? Abigail did kill him. Can we have enough of the female psycho wanting revenge stories? Please? Eve, Jan, Kristen, Claire, Gwen…..ENOUGH!! It is very disheartening to see all these women alone, talking to themselves sneering “Im going to make you pay!!”

Totally agree. I don’t mind Ron’s stories but DAYS is definitely full of one-dimensional women characters. They’re crazy, evil, manipulative and/or desperately needing to be saved by men. It’s an unfortunate message to be sending in a medium watched mostly by women. Wondering if it is Ron or actually the religious right that owns DAYS – it wasn’t like this on GH and OLTL. Gaby and Ciara were strong, but now they’re gone.

I totally agree. This is the most “evil” soap opera program on TV. I’m really getting over it, their storylines, and I stopped watching it earlier this year but came back. Maybe, I should’ve stayed gone since I am tired of the regurgitating story plots.

I can’t stand this woman whoever the hell she is. I liked her on Y&R years ago but this time she gets on my very last nerve, especially that terribly annoying habit of biting on her nails while trying to make a point or whatever crap she’s spewing.

i certainly do not see a “connect” chemistry thing going on with Neither, Jake OR Chad. especially, Chad… now that Marci Miller is back… leave well enough alone. I hope Ron and Ryan ARE NOT giving her a place in this show to solidify? quack out and go. the one that i’m really have an “odd” time with is Jan Spears !?!? I certainly know the name… boy is she still stuck … her big hair… is it all Farrah? her cheap clothes. she’s trying to “slither” her charms… allure in dark places… she’s hissing all for naught. “don’t wear… Read more »

Maybe she is Stephano’s daughter.Who knows but the only thing I like about her is her accent.

I hear Gwen may be an unknown daughter of Jack’s who was conceived when he was gone all those years.
On another sour note, maybe foreshadowing, but seeing Kate and Jake together scares me. I like Jake and the idea of her seducing him into her bed, makes me sick to my stomach.

Guess I was right about Kate and Jake, barf!!

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.

But first, watch Robert talking about working with Bill Hayes on Days of our Lives, and his appearance in Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Lifetime Achievement Award package at the Daytime Emmys (produced by Michael Fairman).
