Abigail’s mission to move on with her life without Chad – she’s found a new job and a new place to live – takes another step forward, when she goes out on a date with Dario on Days of Our Lives (DOOL).
“He’s a distraction,” explains Marci Miller. “Abigail has some reservations about it, initially, when Dario asks her out. But, the circumstances are that he’s one of the few people who she has to rely on, right now.
“She has her mother, she has brother, but she doesn’t really have any friends to hang out with or interact with. And Dario has been a good support system for Abigail.
Out to Celebrate
“It’s only awkward, because he’s said he loves her,” continues Miller. “But Dario kind of convinces Abigail to go by saying, ‘Hey, all that aside, I just want to be your bud. That’s what this is – a happy new job dinner. So she goes, because she just needs a distraction.”
Miller insists that Abigail is serious about getting herself together and moving forward as a strong, independent woman.
“The job is the first step,” notes Miller. “With it, comes a variety of things. She’s rented her own room at the B&B. She’s not going to stay with her mom anymore. It really gets the ball rolling on all kinds of things.”
“It’s awkward on all accounts,” recounts Miller. “There’s a part of Abigail that feels really badly. She never wants Chad to think that she’s romantically involved with or interested in Dario, because she really, truly, genuinely is not at all.
“But at the same time there is a fair amount of, ‘Hey, dude. The way you’re feeling right now, multiply that times 100 and that’s how I felt for the last six months of my life. At least there really isn’t anything here. You really were in love with my best friend.’ It’s a complex situation.”
