This past month was a rollercoaster of emotions for Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) on Days of Our Lives.
It kicked off with Chad and his wife, Abigail DiMera (Marci Miller) discussing having another baby together. Fans got to see Chabby (Chad + Abby) blissfully happy one last time as they tried making another baby and even gushing at the thought of perhaps having twins. The couple also share a beautiful, touching goodbye as they say “I love you” when Chad takes their children to a movie premiere and Abigail stays behind at home. News had already broken that Miller was leaving the soap and spoilers revealed that Abigail was going to be murdered. It made Chabby’s final moments even more meaningful and fans were able to feel the connection that Flynn and Miller had made in their goodbyes.
Chad returns home to find Abigail has been murdered. Flynn’s bone-chilling cries for help as Chad is devastated at the scene of what has happened to his wife touched viewers. Unfortunately, Abigail dies at the hospital and Chad says his goodbyes. Flynn’s tearful performance had Chabby fans’ hearts breaking along with Chad’s.
The tears kept coming for fans as Chad grieves the loss of his wife and various loved ones paid their respects. EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerriegel) convinces Chad that it’s time to tell Chad’s children that their mother is gone. Chad isn’t sure he knows how to tell them since he himself doesn’t know how he’s going to move on without his wife. EJ reminds him that he has his family’s support and they will be there every step of the way. Chad does break the news to his kids and then is later comforted by Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) and John Black (Drake Hogestyn). John and Chad connect over their shared bond of losing a spouse. Chad shares with John that the last words he and Abigail said to each other were “I love you”. Later on, JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) returns and he and Chad clear the air as they grieve Abigail.
Flynn has captured just how much Abigail and Miller will be missed through his powerful and moving performances. Flynn has chemistry with all of his scene partners which has shined through the storyline thus far. Chad is determined to make Abigail’s murderer pay and he is a DiMera after all; fans can’t wait to see what happens next and they know Flynn will continue to knock his scenes out of the park!
