Days of our Lives head writer Ron Carlivati is a master of multiple personality storylines, having penned some gut-wrenching twists and turns for One Life to Live's Victoria (Erika Slezak) and Jessica (Bree Williamson), both of whom suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). So DAYS fans are in for a treat because it was just revealed that Abigail (Marci Miller) has another personality named Gabby!
The completely bonkers plot twist was revealed at the end of last Friday's episode, with Stefan (Tyler Christopher) coming face to face with “Gabby,” who was holding the murder weapon that killed Andre (Thaao Penghalis) and thus was shown to be his killer.
As for what viewers can expect from “Gabby” as she realizes Stefan could put two and two together and realize that it was her that murdered his brother, Miller says it's all very Machiavellian.
“[Gabby] is really trying to manipulate him and frame him and take advantage of him,” she tells Soap Opera Digest. “And she'll use anything: her sexuality, she'll threaten, she'll be super dark and devious.”
Time will tell whether or not Gabby will be able to keep her secret much longer -- and what Stefan will do with the news if he's able to figure out that Abigail has developed DID and killed Andre while under the influence of her other personality. Fans will have to continue tuning in to DAYS to find out.
