Death - Salem

How odd/creepy is it that we are talking about Joe M. dying and his character on the show being mentioned to be alive still?  Or that John went to LA to see his mother (sick?  dying) and his Mom just died in real life.

With that - I dunno how ANYONE in Salem believes ANYONE is dead.  Further more - Chad, with all his recent experiences....  s*it I'd be asking for a DNA Sample to make sure she wasn't faux Abby.  And then i'd probably STILL not believe it lol
