Our Performers of the Week are Days of Our Lives’ Marci Miller, Billy Flynn, and Emily O’Brien!
While The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan and Ptosha Storey had some great scenes this week, it was this trio of Days stars that had us glued to the screen. Abby learned the truth about Chad’s night with Gwen and was forced to hear about all the dirty little details from the woman she thought was her friend. Emily O’Brien plays devious with perfection as she happily gave Abby the crushing play by play. Marci Miller, who deserves all the awards, took us on an emotional journey filled with anger and heartbreak as Abby discovered her husband’s transgressions. And bonus points for one helluva slap slap! While the world is hating on Chad for his stupidity and lack of trust in his wife, we are loving Billy Flynn’s portrayal of Chad as he reckons with his mistakes. He has once again hurt the person he loves the most...and he might not be able to get her back this time. Bravo to this group for providing us with the most entertaining scenes of the week!
