On Days of Our Lives, Ciara has been obsessed with getting Hope and the rest of her family to forgive Ben.
Meanwhile, Abigail (Kate Mansi) was busy faking a return of her split personality and learning that Chad (Billy Flynn) rather than Stefan (Tyler Christopher) fathered her baby daughter, Charlotte – something Gabi (Camila Banus) knew all along.
As a result, not much attention has been paid to Ben’s (Robert Scott Wilson) history with Abigail – the last time Chad was the true father of a baby Abigail believed was someone else’s – in this case, Thomas.
But, now that Abigail knows the truth about Charlotte – and Gabi – she can focus on Ben. When she’s not trying to reconnect with back-from-the-dead Daddy, Jack (Matthew Ashford).
Has Ben changed enough that Abigail should be able to forgive him for kidnapping her, forcing her to give birth in a cabin, then taking off with Thomas? Oh, and setting her and Chad on fire? Over 10,000 fans had something to say about that!
Now that Abigail has had her own bout with mental illness, 45% of you believe she should be able to understand why Ben did what he did and forgive him. You know, how all of Salem has forgiven her.
It doesn’t matter, 33% dismiss. Abigail doesn’t have to forgive Ben. Their paths never have to cross. He’s with Ciara (Victoria Konefal), she’s with Chad, and her feelings for Ben don’t play a role in either of their lives.
And then there are the 22% who believe Abigail can be polite to Ben without forgiving him. Something Hope (Kristian Alfonso) certainly cannot manage at this time. Just like Abigail believes that Gabi needs to be punished for what she did to her – while Abigail walks scot-free – she can feel the same about Ben.
