Something happens that gets Gabi out of prison.

There’s supposedly a story involving Caroline, but it’s unclear what’s rumor, spoiler, or speculation.
[...] posted on a FB page supposedly run by her fan club president who says her name is Denise Kiel Smith. Here is the post...but not sure who her source is

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=9366171930... "Denise Kiel Smith
Good news for Peggy McCay fans! As I've stated, I'm president of her fan club and I try to keep her fans updated. I've been told that Peter Reckell is back to the studio working and will be in scenes in the near future. And more good news for Caroline Brady. You will find out she did not have alzheimer's but "something else". Victor still has feelings for her and will send his private plane to Peru to get meds for her from a private doctor. One more little scoop is Victor wants Hope back with Bo and Caroline agrees. Maggie tells Hope to drop Bo and marry Aiden. This will lead to friction. Will Victor be drawn to Caroline because of their shared son, Bo? Wouldn't it be great if Victor and Caroline got back together. She was the love of his life at one time. I don't want to see Maggie hurt but this would stir up a lot of interesting scenes. What do you think? Should Hope go back to Bo? Should Victor go back to Caroline? Lots to look forward to! Denise — with Peggy McCay."


she also made a post a little while ago

https://www.facebook.com/dee.k.smith.94/posts/9379... "ATTENTION CAROLINE BRADY (PEGGY McCAY) FANS....I heard a rumor from a very reliable source who has privvy to upcoming scenes....when Peggy goes in the studio this week they have Caroline dying!!! It appears she's being written off. Now, Victor is supposed to find a cure but there's no finalization of whether she survives or not, but it sounds bleak. This scene will not air for a couple of months. The only possible chance she has at surviving is if her fans let the studio know (ASAP) how important her character is. Letters and emails are important this week. If there is not much support we will see the end of Caroline Brady. Please do what you can to help. Her fans have kept her character alive. This is an urgent situation.
Sincerely, Fan club president, Denise Smith"

I saw one of the audition tapes and it was in the dialogue. The actress also mentioned "Chad" as if they had a history. Of course that could have been a code name, but an odd one to choose.

Thanks for the additional info, Hamilton! I hadn't seen an audition tape.

Have a friend with a very reliable source who says Freddie was asked to come back to re-shoot things for Sonny's exit. The "source person" has passed on things before that turned out to be true on so I have every reason to believe they're probably right again about this.

Having said that, if wonder why the big secret about who TJ Hoban is playing. If he's not a recast for a major character why all the secrecy?

I hope that's true for two reasons. So maybe Sonny's exit won't stink and that would mean we get the townhouse back sooner because we thought it was in that Marlena Sonny picture

Why all the secrecy? Do you know anything about any other under 5s filming in the next few months?

So after the longest hiatus from DOOL that I have taken since I was a small child 50 years ago, maybe it's time to put it back on the DVR again. ☺
