On Days of our Lives, Chad spent quite a few weeks under the spell of his evil Daddy, Stefano. Whose consciousness was hanging out in Steve’s body, thanks to Dr. Rolf (Will Utay).
Days of our Lives Spoilers Spec
Chad has been neither happy nor go lucky lately. Sure, he’s got a lot going on. There’s Gabi (Camila Banus) to remind that she’s scum, Abigail (Kate Mansi) to send off for mental treatment, and those invisible children don’t turn invisible by themselves!
He’s been downright grim. Focused. Serious. Menacing. DiMera like… If Stefano isn’t living in Steve’s head, could he have taken up residence… in Chad’s?

Fruit Of A Poisonous Tree
If Chad either IS Stefano, or he’s still being controlled by his father – or one of Stefano’s minions – then it would make sense he’d get rid of Abigail. Abigail would be the first one to sense that something is wrong, and she might figure out what’s going on.
(Yes, Abigail is a bubble-head, but even a broken clock is right twice a day, and she did get to the bottom of Gina pretending to be Hope [Kristin Alfonso], so maybe this is the one thing she’s good at.)
To that end, it gives Chad a motive to poison Abigail, make her feel out of control, and get her to agree to go away, without him having to seemingly lift a finger. As an added bonus, he can frame Gabi for the crime, so she’s also sent away, and the empire is, once again, in Chad – and Stefano’s – control.
They can rule the galaxy as father and son. Who cares if Chad didn’t exactly have much say in the matter? Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
