Days Of Our Lives (DOOL) star Kate Mansi said she was stunned to get the call to come back as Abigail Deveraux. She said even though it was unexpected, she agreed immediately. She felt like she had unfinished business with Abi. Over the course of the next eight weeks, she shot “an insane amount’ of scenes. She said even though it wasn’t the most work she’s ever done, it was the most satisfying.
DOOl Spoilers—Mansi Had Her Eye On The Prize
Since this return had a planned exit, Mansi said it was more like a movie than a soap opera. The actress noted that she knew the storyline and how it would end. She thinks that knowing that, gave her insight to the character and helped give Abigail and Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) the sendoff they both deserved.
When Kate came on the scene, Abigail was in a mental hospital with multiple personalities, impersonating Gabi Herandez (Camila Banus) in hope to get Stefan DiMera (then Christopher Tyler) to whisk her away from Salem.
Kate said that once you play a character like Abi for so long, you become them in a sense. DAYS spoilers state that her favorite part of the return was working with Tyler Christopher.

Mansi said that it was hard for Abigail to trust Chad after he had taken their daughter from her. But, in the end, she understood his reasoning and decided to trust him. For them, the turning point was their daughter’s kidnapping.
Chad and Abigail were there for each other and it led to them renewing their commitment to each other. Of course, DOOL fans know that right before their exit, they remarried and vowed to love and support each other for the rest of their lives.
The happy couple decided to leave Salem for a fresh start. And, Mansi teased that perhaps she will come back for a short stint. It would be fun for Chabby to return with a very grown-up Charlotte.
