What's on your mind?
I’m writing in to say how amazing the Chad and Abby scenes were on DAYS when Abby gave birth to their daughter! Marci Miller [ex-abigail] and Billy Flynn [Chad] played it to perfection, and it was awesome that Abby was born in that cabin now she gave birth in that cabin, too! The scenes surrounding it were so good and funny! I especially loved when Chad and Abby cuddled with their new daughter. Even though Chad doesn’t yet know he’s the dad, you’d never know! And I hope Stefan does the right thing now that he knows what Gabi has been doing. Those scenes of Stefan getting Gabi to confess in the same episode made for must-see TV! Good job, DAYS! Good job, Marci Miller! We’ll miss you as Abigail. All the best and thank you! C.S. in Canada
ALL MY LOVING
I love Soap Opera Digest and I love DAYS OF OUR LIVES! My favorites couples are Chad and Abigail, Rafe and Hope, John and Marlena, and Steve and Kayla. I absolutely love the addition of Tyler Christopher [Stefan] to the cast. He is

so handsome and such a good actor and I love his calm, brooding demeanor. I hope he returns quickly from his leave. I love
Billy Flynn — I think he is one of the best actors on DAYS. I love his chemistry with Kate Mansi [Abigail]. It’s off the charts! I can’t stand Chad with Gabi; it has never worked and never will. His falling for Gabi when Abigail was supposed to be dead was just so forced. If he was so broken up about the loss of his beloved wife that he had to find comfort in Gabi (who he never even felt attracted to), then he should have been beyond happy when his wife returned and dropped her like a hot potato just like Sonny dropped Paul (without even one ounce of any lingering feelings). That would of made a lot more sense if they played it like he was confused and just finding comfort in the friendship. I can’t wait until Chad finds out all of Gabi’s dirty deeds! She is no longer a good person or a good mother, hurting Abigail’s two innocent children. She can’t possibly be spending any time with her own child running a company and running around town drugging and gaslighting people! She deserves to go back to jail and lose her daughter. Nothing against Camila Banus — I think she is a fine actress and a beautiful girl — but they are making Gabi a horrible person to hurt children and risk losing her own child and not have a care in the world about it.

The episode on DAYS with Abby in labor, while very serious, was humorous,

also. Chad jumping around on the furniture trying to get a cell phone signal, telling Abby that this time she doesn’t have a psychopath delivering her baby and her responding, “No you’re the psychopath this time.” Very funny stuff.

TRUE TO LIFE
I wanted to let the writers of GH and especially the actors Roger Howarth [Franco] and Jon Lindstrom [Kevin] know how deeply affected I was by the repressed memories/childhood sexual abuse story in the spring. I am a survivor of similar abuse at a very young age. Seeing a character go through the living hell of questioning his sanity, his memories, his value as a human being, and his entire life history, then breaking the barri-
ers to memory, facing the abuser, and struggling to accept the life-altering reality of a past he fought so hard to forget, has been so relatable and trueto-life. I also appreciate that it hasn’t just been completely dropped, as if remembering is a magic cure that makes one all better. It takes a long time to accept CSA as part of

your history, and triggers may come from anything. Franco was the perfect character for this story and no one could have portrayed the labyrinth of emotions as perfectly as Roger Howarth. Jon Lindstrom was also outstanding in Kevin’s role of the therapist who guides without pushing and accepts without judgment. Dialogue that needed to be spoken was spoken: “It’s not your fault. You cannot control an adult’s actions. You are not a bad person. You will not become an abuser because you have been abused. You are capable of living, loving, and having a healthy family.” While Elizabeth played a supporting role in this plot, it was her love that helped Franco get to the other side. Rebecca Herbst played every beat perfectly, from questioning, reassuring, and even seeming to know what the truth was before Franco did. Roger Howarth and Rebecca Herbst have created a magical connection between the characters of Franco and Elizabeth that puts them among the most elite supercouples in soap history as far as this lifelong viewer is concerned. The looks, the touches, the simple gestures make even a cynic like me believe real love might be possible. After this story aired, I publicly came forward as a survivor and am currently working on creating a support group at my church for assault survivors. This story made me brave enough to take that step. So, I hope more people will benefit from this powerful tale and the way it was brought to life on our screens. Thank you to everyone who created this masterpiece of storytelling.
