Plane crashes and is­land-sur­vival es­capades are noth­ing new to a lot of folks in DAYS’ Salem, but for Gabi and those stranded with her this sum­mer, it’s ab­so­lutely ter­ri­fy­ing. Will the sin­gle mom ever get home to her lit­tle girl? And can she sur­vive be­ing alone with not one but two of her lost loves while there? Her por­trayer, Camila Banus, says that go­ing to Greece in pur­suit of Chad might wind up be­ing her al­ter ego’s big­gest re­gret! “Gabi doesn’t know if they’re go­ing to die,” Banus pre­views. “She doesn’t know if they’re ever go­ing to get off the is­land!”

What she does know is that Chad is there, and since they’ve sur­vived a long string of per­ilous predica­ments to­gether, that’s some mea­sure of com­fort. What’s not com­fort­able? The way those sit­u­a­tions tend to amp up the phys­i­cal at­trac­tion be­tween them. And while she’s been re­luc­tant to cozy up to the mar­ried man, she now knows that Abi­gail has filed for di­vorce… and that changes every­thing, in­clud­ing the rules! “Gabi’s now found her­self in a re­ally com­pro­mis­ing sit­u­a­tion,” says Banus, “where her head is say­ing no, but her heart and her body are say­ing yes!”

Mean­while, Gabi is also stuck in the re­mote place with ex-boyfriend JJ and Lani, the woman that he’d cheated on her with. “It is awk­ward, but to be hon­est, I think Gabi just fears for her life,” Banus of­fers of the fright­en­ing sit­u­a­tion. “They don’t see that there is a way for them to leave the is­land in the fore­see­able fu­ture, so she’s just ac­cept­ing what’s in front of her, and Chad is right there!”

Gabi may have to share body heat with Chad. “Who knows if it’s go­ing to be cold at night?” muses her por­trayer.
