Desperate to protect her true love Chad, Abigail agrees to leave Salem with her duplicitous husband Dario on Days of Our Lives (DOOL).
That is, after Dario (Jordi Vilasuso) blackmails her, by threatening to expose an incriminating photo of her ex hovering over Deimos’ dead body with a knife.
Initially, Abigail believes she won’t have to cave to Dario’s demands. She knows the photo is on his computer and a few other places. All she has to do is make sure all copies of it are deleted and destroyed. So, she enlists Andre (Thaao Penghlis) and Theo’s (Kyler Pettis) help.
Destroying the Evidence
“Abby’s trying to do two things,” explains Miller. “She wants to ruin the evidence that makes it look like Chad killed Deimos, and she wants to back Dario into a corner. She knows that he’s been counterfeiting money and stealing from all these companies; including DiMera Enterprises.
“It’s personal to her, and she wants to put a stop to it. She’s trying to back Dario into a corner [by exposing him], so she won’t have to go to Mexico with him.”
Ace in the Hole
Despite Abigail, Andre, and Theo’s best efforts to destroy all of the incriminating photos of Chad, Dario produces an ace in the hole. Turns out he has one additional copy of it and he promises he’ll use it.
“Dario tells Abby that if she doesn’t leave town with him and come to Mexico, he’s going to show the picture to the whole world and Chad is going to go to jail for the rest of his life,” recounts Miller.
“[Things] get down to the wire. Abby has a plan and is hoping the information [against Dario] is going to come to head… that he’s going to be captured for his crimes. But until it does, she’s got to pretend she’s going away with him.”
