I don't know where to begin with the ruination of Abby, and Chad as well. Tis a travesty! Abby certainly has been no angel, from her setting up the implication she & Austin were having an affair, to her actual one with the about to be married EJ, she has certainly not thought through whatever she is doing. Along comes Ben, she is "with" him, but then there is that pulling attraction towards Chad. Yes, constant turmoil, trouble, danger, near death, but Chad was there, fighting for her, rescuing her, putting his own life at risk, a constant. Abby breaks down mentally, is hospitalized, not getting better, Chad there always. She is having hallucinations of Ben, runs away, having the idea she did not want to be a burden to Chad and their son. Gramma Laura takes her in, hiding her, helping with the right meds this time, and she gets better, much better. So much so, she goes to Salem to try and see her son. Personally, I think Gramma Laura needs to come to Salem, and get Abby back on proper meds, because she certainly has been off the wall in her thinking, her actions, her conclusions. And Chad has not helped at all with his devotion to his wife and child, plus lust for Gabi. Deimos recognized that, took advantage of it. And Abby ....filing for divorce, believing Dario's claim of perhaps being deported, not checking facts. Insisting she loves Chad so much, wants him happy, so he should be with Gabi. I absolutely detest this stupid story, and cannot understand how quickly and easily these current writers had to ruin something viewers loved. I don't care if there was a recast......story was there. The actors are great. Chad no longer is even trying in a scene. Abby is pitiful. Yes, this is my opinion. Is there hope for these two, How?
