Once Chad put the pieces together, it was clear that Clyde was the person who murdered Abigail and attacked Sonny, and, after three long months, viewers finally know why.

Abigail should have let it go: her reporter instincts doomed her," one person tweeted. "Clyde murdered Abby so she wouldn't rat his a** out, what a low life human being he is," another stated

"Picking Clyde seems so stupid of a reason.. this whole thing is unsettling!!" another commented. "The Who [sic] Clyde killing Abby because he couldn't get to boring dumb Belle is ridiculous as well as stupid," one viewer wrote.

It appears that fans have mixed feelings about Abigail's murder and Clyde's motives, and only time will tell where the story will go from here.
