SOD 6/27/22

Marci Miller (Abigail) talks about leaving the role. She wants to try other roles in movies and shows, and they couldn’t make it work with her schedule. She wishes they hadn’t killed Abby off. It was upsetting for her to lie there as a corpse while the actors visited her and poured their hearts out (particularly Chad and Jennifer).

Billy Flyn (Chad) is featured in a very short interview about what’s going on with Chad in the show.

Early Editions: Ciara and Ben get an apology from Allie. John attempts to comfort Chad. Eric is asked about Nicole by Roman. EJ tries to reach Sami.

Lani is haunted by TR (William Christian) this week. Marla Gibbs (Olivia) and Cameron Johnson (Theo) return for Abe and Paulina’s wedding. Sami returns to town 6/23.

Chrishell Stause (ex-Jordan) won the MTV awards for Best Reality Show for her Netflix series, “Selling Sunset.”

Lucas worries that he may have murdered Abby after he wakes up from a night of binge-drinking. Abigail found out that Lucas was trying to mess with hospital records. He feels horrified that he may have done something terrible to her. Lucas finds out from Brady that there is jewelry and cash missing as well, so Lucas tries to find if he has any of it.

Headwriter Ron Carlivati talks about why they’re killing off Abigail. The basic reason is that Marci Miller wouldn’t commit to a long-term contract, and it makes it difficult to write story for Chad when she’s always going out of town. The same is true of Abby’s former portrayer, Kate Mansi. They decided that killing her off was better than recasting again. He feels that it’s a permanent death, even though that doesn’t mean much in Salem. It also kicks off a murder mystery. He talks about the various suspects, such as Gwen, Leo and Lucas. Carlivati praises the actors playing Jack, Jenn, and Chad as they deal with their characters’ grief. He said that the death will “have a big, long-lasting impact on the characters.”
