Abigail's departure would be so much more seamless if they had Lori to say the goodbyes and give the explanations for her departure, but of course, that can't happen. I'm more excited to see how they handle it all than I am to catch up on the story. lol
I did watch a 3 minute preview of the new shows coming on Sunday and Monday. It recorded on my DVR so I watched it. No mention of Lori/Abigail. Just Erin Krakow telling us they're coming back with 2 special episodes.
Also, before I say this, I have to first say that the whole Lori Loughlin thing has really disappointed me. I am not a gullible person but she sure had me fooled. I just thought she was like the epitome of an honest, caring person. I always loved her work. But they showed her coming out of the courtroom (or going in) on the news this morning and she just looks like a different person. Sour face - almost arrogant. I get that nobody's perfect, but geez, this really knocked her down a few, make that A LOT of pegs in my eyes.
