The minute rich, hot, and flirty Stefan O. DiMera made his appearance on Days Of Our Lives (DOOL), fans knew he was due for a love interest, sooner rather than later.
Stefan (Tyler Christopher) looked around, Stefan considered his options, and now Stefan is in a relationship with…someone who doesn’t exist?
Stefan has announced that he’s in love with Gabigail, the Gabi-inspired alter ego of the very mentally unwell Abigail (Marci Miller).
But is he? Can he be? Over 5,000 viewers take on the role of Dr. Laura and pass judgement on this less-than-healthy pairing:
Unwell, Unreal, Unloved?
You can’t be in love with a person who isn’t a person, assert the 73% of you who can only be so accepting under these circumstances.
Gabigail is not a real woman, she is the manifestation of a disturbed Abigail trying to suppress the fact (from herself) that she killed Andre (Thaao Penghlis) – and Abigail was actually one of the few people in Salem who liked him!
She isn’t Gabi, she isn’t Abby, she’s a walking nervous breakdown. And you can’t love that.
You can, however, get that some psychological help. If you really care. And are a nice person. So, what will it be, Stefan?
Let He Who Is Without Sin….
Who gets to decide who’s real and who isn’t, a romantic 26% challenge. Gabigail thinks she’s real, and if Stefan does, too, then he has every right to fall in love with the woman in front of him.
And, who keeps throwing herself at him. (Though, in this case, “Not tonight, dear, I have a headache,” is the preamble to a total personality transplant.)
The heart wants what the heart wants, and Stefan’s heart wants Gabigail. If you can fall in love with a penpal, or a voice on the phone, why not a split personality?
