Marci Miller, the recipient of Soap Hub’s Performer of the Week Award, has been frequently called upon to guide Abigail through her most weighty crisis – from her murder of a lecherous Andre to her struggle with multiple personality disorder and now her realization that the life she had worked so hard to preserve is at an end.

And it’s all thanks to her husband’s one-night stand with her very own sister. A sister that is currently three months pregnant and determined to see the condition through. For Abigail, it’s like a living nightmare that she can’t escape from.
The emotionally bruised and battered woman found momentary refuge with her aunt, and it was here that Miller shined brightest. Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) seemed to provide the calming effect that Abby desperately needed in order to rationally assess the situation as a whole.
“If Gwen goes forward and has this baby…it’s just going to be a constant living reminder that Chad cheated on me…I don’t know how we can move past that.”
And how it pertains to her personally. With tears pooling in her eyes, with her voice cracking, Abby finally admitted a terrifying truth: “I just feel so out of control…The things that come out of my mouth, the things that I am thinking about all the time. If I don’t get control of it, I don’t know why Chad, or you, or anybody would want to have anything to do with me.”
And just when it seemed that she’d achieved a modicum of peace, Abby returned home, only to be assaulted by the sight and sound of Chad (Billy Flynn) and Gwen (Emily O’Brien) discussing the baby that Gwen intended to bring into the world.
At the conclusion of the confrontation that followed, Abby congratulated Gwen on achieving her goal of ruining her life. And for her riveting tour de force, we extend our own congratulations to Miller. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
