Nah Ben can be a serial killer. The problem is making that serial killer a hero and anyone that has a problem with it, wrong.

 

In isolation this is true but the pattern of Days turning its young attractive decent-acting and popular male leads into criminals is abysmal and short-sighted. As far back as Nick as the stalker.

Justin Gaston was a better Ben. His accent and look were absolute hillbilly and he didn't sound Canadian like RSW.

I'm really liking this angry, determined Abigail. I find it totally believable given everything that Gwen has done. Hopefully, this turns out to actually be her and not some brand new alter.

I can’t say enough good things about Marci’s revitalized take on Abby (if my new profile pic didn’t give it away). Icy yet down-and-dirty. She’d make an amazing villain if they went there. MM is a star who definitely deserves a better platform, but she’s making the most of what she’s given these days.

I like her toughness but no to her being a villain. Days has enough villains. A complicated but fundamentally decent character who does what she has to do without being a villain is so much more interesting.

Just saying that she could perform it well if they did, which I didn’t see when she was playing the Gabi alter. She seemed limp as that “character” to me.

I always thought Marci was basically auditioning for indie film projects in her first DOOL stint. She appears to have given up on that ambition and has adopted a more traditional soap acting approach. I think she's overdoing it a bit at this point ... but that may just be my reaction to how differently she's playing it.

I’ve always loved Marci Miller.  I think she took the notes that she should play Abby with more fire and unpredictably like Kate Mansi, which is working so well.  But I liked her quiet strength, long-suffering heroine Abby she played from 2016-18, too.

 

However, what’s most important is that Abby be on the show and the musical chairs between Marci and Kate is unsustainable.  Kate obviously doesn’t want a long-term contract and I don’t know where Marci stands.  It’s all over the internet that she’s pregnant (I totally missed this lol) so I wonder how they’ll handle her maternity leave (another recast would be too much, imo) and I really, really hope she’ll be sticking around long-term!!

They’re too different to keep doing the Lecy Goranson/Sarah Chalke swap, for sure.

I can't stand Ben, and I don't think RSW is anything great, but Justin Gaston was in the role for all of five seconds and was horrendous. He was beyond wooden.

I have to agree with you. Gaston was a great Chance on Y&R, but he was just awful as Ben on Days.

I love the idea of POC running businesses in that empty run down mall called Horton Town Square. Also loved when Paulina called Basic Black. A white owned business. With a black name. So Gabi Chic being close for months ties to Paulina. I didn't see that one coming. The Karen's in a Days FB group i belong too. Where up in arms. Because Days is lightly tackling racism. But with RC writing this. I'm not going to get too excited.

I love Dishin Days. I watch it every Sunday night
