Days of Our Lives (DOOL) fans have been very vocal about Abigail “Abby” Deveraux DiMera’s (Marci Miller) return to Salem and whether or not Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) should reunite with her or continue his budding relationship with Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus).
DOOL’s Chad and Abigail have a lot of history together and also share a child. Their relationship has had a lot of ups and downs but what Abigail has done recently might not be forgivable. Abby allowed Chad to believe she was dead, and he struggled tremendously turning to alcohol to ease his pain causing him to almost lost their son in the process.
Abby might have been shown mercy and forgiveness had she immediately gone to Chad the minute she arrived in town, but she chose to hide out in her mother’s attic, worried that Chad wouldn’t want her. She simply waited too long, and honestly who could blame Chad for hesitating over her commitment to him and their son, Thomas? Chad had never shown anything but love to Abby and for her to act like he wouldn’t want to be with her was ridiculous and awfully selfish. Her son and husband needed her.
Gabi Hernandez is not a saint either, and after spending time in jail for killing Nick Fallon (Blake Berris) you’d think no one would take a chance on her, especially in the business world. Chad hired her and she helped him with his style and business. They genuinely suited each other, both were single parents simply trying to find their way in life.
Gabi and Chad have a long-standing friendship with each other and Gabi has been by his side when most were against him. They Fell for each other without even realizing what was happening. Gabi had been through a lot with JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) and when he withheld the truth about Abby, he wasn’t just lying to Chad; another thing JJ shouldn’t be forgiven for.
Gabi and Chad were on a good path when Abigail reappeared, and who could blame Chad for moving ahead with his life. Abby is more determined than ever to prove to Chad that their love is eternal and he should stop loving Gabi and be with her. The heart wants what the heart wants.
Gabi has not done anything for Chad to doubt her loyalty and that must weigh on his mind. How can he trust that Abigail won’t bolt the second life gets to difficult for her to deal with? Who do you think Chad should be with, please take our poll and let us know who you prefer Chad with.
