Days Of Our Lives Spoilers: Did The Show Miss An Opportunity With Kate Mansi?
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans continue to reel over the loss of Abigail Deveraux (Marci Miller), despite the fact that the character died about a year ago. With that being said, this still stings for many viewers, especially in light of the news that actress Kate Mansi, who once played Abigail, was recently recast into a legacy role for General Hospital (GH). This begs the question, had producers not decided to “kill” Abigail in such a final way, would DOOL audiences be welcoming Mansi back to Salem?
DOOL Spoilers: Once Again We Ask Ourselves Why Abigail Had To Die
It’s no secret that Mansi was well-loved as Abigail and a fan favorite. It’s rare that two actresses are so accepted by soap audiences, as this can often cause a divide, but (for the most part) viewers loved both Miller and Kate in the role.
Still, DOOL fans are once again speculating all over social media as to why Abigail had to die in such a definite way, versus a passing that would allow her to come back. With GH’s recent announcement that Kate would be joining the cast, the buzz from Days fans has increased.
While the storyline around figuring out who axed Abby was intriguing, and Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera) provided some incredible scenes (ones that have given him a Daytime Emmy nod this year), it’s still hard to waiver the fact that Abigail, and the Chabby romance, should’ve been given more time. Or at least an opportunity for a return.
Days Spoilers: There’s Always That Glimmer Of Hope
The good news is that DOOL’s loss is GH’s gain, and it’ll be interesting to see what Kate Mansi does with her new Kristina Corinthos-Davis role, and what kind of storylines she’ll dive into. It’s also good to know that she hasn’t lost her passion for working in the land of daytime drama.
Plus, no one is really ever “dead” in soaps; especially in the land of Salem. If writers can think of a way to bring back Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) then there’s always a glimmer of hope that Abby can return again, too!
