Lucas: Oh, my god.
[Breathing shakily] Will, is that really you?
Will: Hey, dad. Long time no see.
[Cell phone beeps]
[Cell phone beeps]
Kate: Jennifer, hey. Abigail's not here.
Jennifer: I didn't come here to speak to abigail. I came here to speak to you. Mother to mother.
Kate: It's just not a good time right now.
Jennifer: If my daughter is going to be a dimera again, I wanna know everything that is going on inside this family.
Abigail: Ugh, gosh, mom, why do you always leave your phone off? Hey. [Sighs] Hi, it's me. Can you just give me a call when you get this because I'm worried about uncle lucas. Okay, bye.
[Footsteps approaching rapidly] Hi. Hey. What're you doing?
Arianna: I'm gonna be your flower girl!
Abigail: Yeah, you are.
Paul: Enough of this crime-fighting nonsense. We got some important tuxedo business to get to, huh?
Jj: Yeah. Huh, you're early.
Paul: Am I?
Jj: Yeah, I thought you'd still be at the church with sonny.
Paul: Yeah, well... kinda got interrupted.
Sonny: I actually felt bad for lucas that my mom dumped him. I couldn't care less if the guy's miserable.
Chad: How long has he been sober? It's been years, hasn't it?
Sonny: Yeah, it's been years, but now he's back to being a nasty, belligerent drunk. Insulting people and embarrassing himself! How could he say that stuff to me, chad?
Chad: Look, he was drunk. He probably doesn't even remember anything he said.
Sonny: I don't care if he was in a coma! That's no excuse to give potshots to me like that!
Sonny: And he brings up will! He thinks because will's not here that I don't think about him? Every single day I think about will. How much I miss him. How much I hated what happened between us. He never should have brought up his name. I don't care how drunk he was or how much he's hurting. And for that, I will never forgive him.
Lucas: [Crying softly] Oh, will. Is it really you?
It can't be. It can't be. It's not real. He's not here. He's gone.
Wait a minute, wait a minute. Where did you go? I didn't mean to say you weren't real.
Will: No, you're right.
Will: Look at you, dad. So wasted that you're hallucinating your dead son.
Lucas: My son. Oh...
Will: How did this happen? How did you fall so far?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Sonny: I mean, does lucas honestly believe that I would forget about will?
Chad: Of course not.
Sonny: That I would ever forget about will?
Chad: Of course not.
Sonny: Even when I walk into this room, chad... we stood by that window and we held each other's hands and we took vows to love each other until death do us part.
Chad: And you held up your end of the bargain.
Sonny: I never stopped loving him. Even after we broke each other's hearts.
Chad: No one thinks that. Look. Do not let what lucas said get to you, okay? He's in pain. He was looking for somebody to lash out at. That's it.
Sonny: I guess it makes sense that it was me.
Chad: Yeah, why is that?
Sonny: Because here I am ranting and raving in outrage, but the truth is, he was right about one thing. I did abandon will.
Will: You're drinking again.
Lucas: What? No, I'm not.
Will: Come on. Dad, I'm in your head. You can't lie to me.
Lucas: What are you doing here?
Will: You tell me.
Lucas: I miss you. I miss you so much. I think about you. I think about you every second of every day.
Will: I know.
Lucas: I think about when you were little. We used to spend all that time together. I think about when we used to play catch. We used to go to the movies.
[Crying] When you were little I used to buckle you into your car seat. I used to hold you in my arms and try to get you to sleep.
Will: I was a terrible sleeper, wasn't I?
Lucas: Well, you just had so much that you wanted to do, you know? You were always so busy. I always sang to you. You remember that?
Will: [Chuckles] Yeah. But I hated lullabies.
Lucas: I tried everything. I tried nursery rhymes and I tried pop songs. I even tried a little hip-hop, but nothing worked. But all you liked-- you liked the old stuff. You liked chuck berry. That was your favorite.
Will: "I gotta find my baby."
Lucas: Yeah, that's right. I sang that to you, like, a million times, man.
Will: And just when you thought I was asleep, I'd pop open my eyes and say-- beg you, "dad, sing it to me one more time."
Lucas: I always would. I always would. I could never say no to you. I always tried to protect you. I did. I tried to give you the best life I could.
Will: Is it my fault? The drinking?
Lucas: No. No, it's not. I would never blame you. I would never blame my perfect son for that. You gotta understand. You were taken too soon. You were taken too soon. All I had left was the pain. I couldn't hear the music anymore. I couldn't remember the lyrics. I... I didn't know what to do. I just-- I just couldn't-- I couldn't sing to my boy. I couldn't sing to my boy again.
Copd makes it hard to breathe.
Jj: Uh, yeah, I heard that uncle lucas fell off the wagon, but I didn't know it was this bad.
Sonny: Yeah, I think this wedding's bringing up a lot of stuff for everyone who loved will. I mean, it's not easy for sonny. I know that.
Jj: How are you?
Jj: Yeah. How do you feel when people bring up will?
Paul: [Sighs] You know, I understand that will was important to sonny.
Jj: Doesn't mean you want it shoved in your face.
Sonny: Yeah, well, that's not how I see it, but...
Jj: Okay, well, paul, I mean, you went to where you're getting married and, you know, stuff--
Paul: You know what, hey, so, we got a little time before our appointment. Let's, uh... let's grab some lunch.
Jj: Let's go, man.
[Soft dramatic music]
Abigail: Some pretty great flower girl action there, ari. Huh?
Gabi: Yeah, she actually made me go get these flowers so she could practice.
Abigail: Well, it's paying off. Is this for me? Did you get this for me? That's very sweet. You know you're gonna be the prettiest flower girl that anybody's ever seen, right? Do you know that? And I'm really glad that you're gonna be a part of mine and chad's wedding.
Gabi: [Chuckles softly]
Abigail: You wanna go get the other one?
Gabi: I thought you'd be at the church, you know, with all the wedding stuff.
Abigail: Oh, yeah, no, we ran into a little snag.
Gabi: What kind of snag?
Abigail: Lucas. He came in drunk and falling all over the place. Just cause a big scene.
Gabi: I am so sorry about that.
Abigail: Oh, no, geez, no. He mostly went after sonny.
Gabi: No, it feels like it's-- it feels like it's my fault because I was the one that sent lucas to the church.
Kate: Look, I really don't know what I can tell you.
Jennifer: Kate. You're a mother. You have to understand how concerned I am about abigail and thomas being in this family again.
Kate: Of course, yes. Of course I do, but I-- it's not like I can share insider secrets with you. You own a newspaper, jennifer.
Jennifer: Okay, well, let me start, all right? Everyone knows that hattie is the one who had andre committed, and we know that he is out of bayview, but at the press conference, he said that he was divorcing you.
Kate: Yes, he did.
Jennifer: Is he still doing that? I mean, what does that mean for the company? What does that mean for your status at the company?
Jennifer: I know that to be ceo of dimera, you have to be in the family.
Kate: You know, I do have information for you, but it has to be absolutely off the record.
Jennifer: I can't promise you that.
Kate: When you hear this, you will not want to speak...
Jennifer: Okay, tell me. Tell me what it is.
Kate: Lucas is drinking again.
Lucas: [Crying softly]
Will: I hate seeing you like this. Dad, I thought you had beaten your addiction.
Lucas: You never beat it. You just hold on.
Will: Well, you were holding on for a long time.
Lucas: It's because of adrienne. After I lost you and your mother, I never thought I'd be happy again. Adrienne came along.
Will: She was really good for you.
Lucas: Yeah. She was. I remember sonny once told me at your wedding that you were his anchor. Adrienne was mine. She kept me sober.
Will: Now she's gone.
Lucas: Yeah. Without her... without you... there is no tomorrow. There's no future. The past is just full of pain. That's all it is.
Will: Dad. She left you. You have to deal with that now.
Lucas: She abandoned me. Same way sonny abandoned you.
Chad: You did not abandon will.
Sonny: I left.
Sonny: I went to paris. I was on another continent when he was murdered.
Chad: That's not your fault.
Sonny: I should have stuck around. Instead I just... ran away.
Chad: I loved will. He was one of my best friends, but we both know that he made a mistake.
Sonny: Come on. No, don't say that.
Chad: It's true. You two were married and he slept with another-- he slept with somebody else. You had every right to be upset.
Sonny: Will needed me and I needed him, and I if I would have stayed and just worked on our marriage like will asked...
Chad: Look, don't do that to yourself.
Sonny: Then maybe he would still be here, chad, and maybe we would still be together.
Chad: You don't know that.
Sonny: Well, at the very least, if I hadn't left, will wouldn't have died thinking that I didn't love him.
[Soft dramatic music]
Will: I don't blame sonny for anything.
Lucas: He's moving on with his life. He's getting married again. He's acting like you never existed.
Will: Well, I want him to be happy. And I think you should too.
Lucas: Anybody could be happy. Sonny and paul could be happy. Adrienne and justin could be happy. I was supposed to get married here, man. I was supposed to get married to her. I sat here-- stood her like a dope and I waited for her to come down the aisle to marry me and it never happened.
Will: Well, maybe... maybe it wasn't meant to be. Maybe adrienne was always gonna end up with justin.
Lucas: Is that why you came here? Is that what you came all the way down here to tell me? That I never had a chance with adrienne?
Will: No, dad, I'm saying that maybe you are meant to be with someone else.
Lucas: Yeah, like who?
Will: What about mom?
Lucas: Sami? Lips lose natural color over time.
Sonny: Oh, the things lucas said about will.
Jj: Mm-hmm. How did sonny react?
Paul: He played it off like he was okay, but I know that it brought up a lot of terrible memories and guilt.
Jj: Guilt? Guilt for... breaking up their relationship? That wasn't sonny's fault.
Paul: No, it was mine.
Jj: Well, you didn't know will was sonny's husband when you guys hooked up.
Paul: Yeah, but once I found out, I... I should have stepped back and let will and sonny work things out. And maybe if I had...
Jj: "Maybe if you had" what? Will and sonny would have stayed together? Will wouldn't have been killed?
Jj: Stop, paul. Nothing that happened was because of you or sonny or anyone else besides that psychopath ben. He murdered will and two other people. He terrorized my sister. He had all of us fooled.
Paul: It's just that--
Jj: You have nothing to feel guilty for.
Look. I thought that sonny wouldn't get over will, but you brought love and happiness back into his life. You're the best thing that ever happened to him, man.
Gabi: Yeah, lucas was drunk and he tried to see arianna, so I sent him away. Maybe-- I did tell him that you guys were working on the wedding, so maybe he thought you were at the church.
Abigail: No, don't worry about it. You had no idea of knowing what he was gonna do.
Gabi: What did he say?
Abigail: What didn't he say? Um... well, he went after sonny for marrying paul and for abandoning will and then he went on to bash pretty much the entire institution of marriage, so...
Gabi: What? I can't believe that I-- that I missed that. I mean, did you at least finish everything you needed to finish before he showed up?
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, we just needed to let the priest know it was gonna be a double wedding and I think he was pretty surprised.
Gabi: Well, yeah, so was I.
Abigail: I'm sure that did come as a shock, yeah. Didn't really realize what you were getting yourself into when you said arianna could be sonny's flower girl.
Gabi: No, but, um... I mean, look at her.
[Chuckles] She's really excited. She made me buy her those flowers.
Abigail: Ah, did she? Um... you know, obviously, you want your daughter to be present for her dad's wedding, so I guess the question is whether you've decided whether or not you're going to be present for mine and chad's?
Sonny: The whole time I was gone, I was thinking about will. Missing him. Then I got his message.
I've listened to that thing so many times I pretty much have it memorized.
"I love you so much, sonny. And even if I don't get the chance to get back together with you, I have to make this right for you. I love you."
[Quietly] I love you.
[Laughs softly] I was gonna plan a trip home.
I just wanted him to know just how much that message meant to me. And that I still love him.
[Sighs] If I just came home one day earlier, chad.
Chad: Stop. Stop.
Sonny: Just one day earlier.
Chad: Sonny. Sonny. You have to forgive yourself. It's what will would want. Okay? He'd want you to be happy. He'd want you to fall in love again. And... he definitely wouldn't want his father of all people to be the one that stands in the way of that.
Lucas: You know more than anyone what it was like when your mother and I were together. It was disaster.
Will: Not always.
Lucas: [Sighs] We fought all the time.
Will: Mostly over me.
Lucas: But you were the thing that connected us. I mean, without you, we would have killed each other.
Will: You and mom loved each other for a long time.
Lucas: Your mother and I, we had a lot of good times together. We raised a lot of hell.
Will: [Chuckles softly] And I know you still think about her.
Lucas: Your mom will always hold a special place in my heart. There's only one sami brady in this world.
Will: Thank god.
Will: Mostly I'm grateful for you and allie. I know that you wanted your parents to get back together, but... I'm sorry, it just doesn't look like that's gonna happen.
Will: Okay. Well, if not mom, then how about somebody else?
Lucas: Have you taken a good look at me lately? I'm a belligerent drunk with no job, all right? I'm not exactly a catch.
Will: You can't give up on yourself, dad. Or on love.
Lucas: Sometimes love gives up on you.
Will: Okay. Okay, fine. You wanna give up? Fine. Quit. Go ahead, quit on life. Just fall down to the bottom of that bottle and die. That's a great way to honor my memory.
Lucas: [Breathes shakily] Ohn's disease.
Jennifer: I know that lucas is drinking again. I tried to get him to go to a meeting with me and he just won't do it.
Kate: Did you keep trying?
Jennifer: He's not taking my calls at this point.
Kate: I tried to get through to him, too, but I think that I just made things worse.
Kate: The first time I found out that he was drinking, I gave him a warning, and then when I caught him again, I fired him. I know. Please, don't judge.
Jennifer: No, I'm not judging you. I know you have a business to run.
Kate: No, it wasn't just about the business. I... I feel so helpless as a parent watching my child lose to an addiction, and I thought that I could give him a wakeup call, and I think that... it just all backfired.
Jennifer: There's no easy answers. I think that you need to let him hit rock bottom and then when he gets to that place, he can pull himself back up.
Kate: I just hope someone can reach him, jennifer. I really do. Before he just throws his entire life away.
Lucas: You know, I've already gotten a lecture from your grandmother and jennifer. I don't need a lecture from my dead son too.
Will: Well... I am in your head, so you brought me here for a reason.
Lucas: Yeah, because I'm drunk. That's the reason. If you're gonna try to guilt me into going to rehab, you are wasting your time.
Will: I've got nothing but time, actually.
Lucas: Yeah, right. That's what I used to think too.
[Soft dramatic music]
Will: So that's your plan? Wallow in your pain instead of dealing with it?
Lucas: You got a better one?
Sonny: If I could just talk to will one more time. Just let him know that I forgive him, and that I never stopped loving him.
Chad: He knows. Trust me. I'm sure he knows.
Chad: Look, things don't always go as planned. Right? And I know that I'm stating the obvious, but what I'm trying to say is, when that happens, you just-- you gotta come up with a new plan. You know, look at me and abby.
Sonny: You both are getting a second chance. I mean I'm so happy for you.
Chad: Yeah, so are you. Sonny, you are getting a second chance, okay? Paul is your second chance.
Paul: So before I came along, sonny and will, they were happy, right?
Jj: Mostly. Why?
Paul: I mean, I wanna know about them, you know. Not just the legend of sonny and will. I wanna know the truth.
Jj: Truth. Well... they fought through a lot to be together. And when they finally were, it just really seemed to work.
Paul: And sonny seemed happy?
Jj: Yeah. Yeah, he did. He spent all those years traveling around the world. Nothing holding him down, but... will grounded him. So whenever he was around will, he just seemed lighter. Like I said, they just worked.
Sonny: And everyone knew it.
Jj: Yeah, it was kind of hard to miss what they had going on. You know, their connection.
Paul: So you would say, uh... it was true love for the both of them?
Jj: Yeah, I'd say that. Paul. Look, man... if you're worried that sonny doesn't love you as much as he loved will, don't go there. They're in the past. You and sonny, you have your whole lives ahead of you. Together.
Gabi: Look, it's your wedding, and you have enough to worry about, so I really don't want you worrying about me.
Abigail: Look, hey, you're my friend. Your feelings are important to me, okay? But at the same time, if you don't wanna come to the wedding, I do understand. What are you thinking right now?
[Soft dramatic music]
Gabi: Abigail, um... you know, everything that's happened has been-- has been really hard. And I know that I've got plenty of time until I can totally get over it, but I'm trying and... every day I'm getting better and better, and I've got arianna. She's my best friend, so, yeah.
Abigail: So... does that mean you're gonna come to the wedding?
Gabi: Seeing you guys happy and seeing sonny finally marry paul and seeing him happy, that matters more than whatever I'm feeling. So, yeah, of course I'm gonna be there.
Abigail: I really do love you.
Gabi: And I love you very much too. And just so you know, eli asked me if I wanted to go with him to your wedding, so I won't be all that pitiful by myself there.
Abigail: Oh, come on, you're not pitiful. You're beautiful and you're just-- you're a great person.
Gabi: So are you. Come here.
Abigail: Thanks. So... eli, huh?
Gabi: Oh, no, it's not a--
Abigail: I shouldn't have-- right, yeah. I shouldn't have said that.
Gabi: I never--it's not a date or anything like that.
Abigail: I get it, yeah. I'm just glad you're gonna be there.
Gabi: Me too.
Sonny: You know what? You're right. I'm not gonna let lucas's drunk rant spoil my wedding or even my day.
Chad: There he is. Sonny's back in the game.
Chad: Wanna know why? 'Cause you're lucky. I mean, how many people get to say that they're marrying their best friend? I mean, I... I don't know, not many, but you are, yeah? And you know what? You and paul, you make a great couple.
Sonny: Well, thank you. And I also wanna apologize.
Chad: Why's that?
Sonny: I just, you know, no one's gonna be looking at you at your wedding. It's just--because I'm gonna be so damn smashing in my new tuxedo.
Chad: No. Now I may be biased, but I think that they're gonna be looking at abby. That's just...
Sonny: Okay, you're probably right. And you know what lucas said about most marriages ending in divorce?
Chad: Screw statistics.
Sonny: Exactly. Love is all about beating the odds, and I'm betting on you and abigail.
Sonny: And paul and me. Thank you.
Paul: It's just-- I mean, it just seems like sonny and will, they were the couple. Thee couple. I mean, people talk about their wedding like it was a royal event. How do you live up to that?
Jj: You don't have to. Look, man. You and sonny belong together. You guys are the present and the future. Just like I said. You and sonny. End of story.
Paul: Yeah. Okay, yeah. Yeah, you're right.
Jj: I know I'm right.
Jj: So how about we go get our tuxes so you don't have to get married in your jeans.
Paul: You know, I wouldn't mind that. It'd be a lot more comfortable.
Jj: You're not supposed to be comfortable at your own wedding.
Paul: [Chuckles] God forbid.
Jj: It's your wedding.
Kate: I can't understand adrienne. She was so heartless. I mean, she just dumped him. You know? She was my friend. I thought she loved lucas.
Jennifer: Yeah, I know. Adrienne has not even been herself lately.
Kate: How's that?
Jennifer: I don't know. She's been neglecting her work, she's been just distracted, and so distant.
Kate: What do you think it means?
Jennifer: I have no idea. It's like over night she completely changed her mind about all of the things and the people she cares about.
Kate: Well, lucas got the brunt of that.
Jennifer: You know that we can't blame adrienne for everything that's happened to lucas. It's just... when you're an addict, it's not one thing that pushes you over that cliff.
Kate: You know, you're right. I think this has been building for a long time. Lucas was never really the same after we lost will.
Will: Oh, yeah, keep throwing back the drinks, dad. That'll make everything better.
Lucas: It numbs the pain.
Will: Is that how you wanna live? Numb?
Lucas: You know what, man? Why don't you leave me alone? You aren't real. You don't exist. You're guilt and your conscience, and your whiskey all mixed together! Why don't you just rest in peace and leave me be?
Will: You wanna give up on life? Fine. You wanna give up on love? Fine. Don't give up on the people who love you. Allie, mom, grandma, jennifer, hope, abigail and jj, my baby girl, arianna. Dad, I am counting on you to be there for her.
Lucas: They won't let me near her, man. They think I'm bad influence.
Will: When you're like this, they're right. But you love that baby girl, and she loves you. When I showed up, you were complaining to god that you're all alone. But that's not true. We know that's not true. Maybe you're too wasted to see it, but there are so many people who love you, dad, and if you let them in, and if you let them help you, I promise, you will never be alone.
I'll start by taking your measurements. Now, which one of you is the groom?
Chad: We both are.
Oh. Well, you both make a very, very handsome couple.
Sonny: Oh, you think that--
Chad: Oh, yeah, no, thank you for noticing. Everybody says that. Um, yeah, my little sonny-bunny, we just-- against all odds, we found our way to each other, and I'm the luckiest man in the world.
[Playful jazz music]
[Soft dramatic music]
Kate: So what do we do now? Just wait for the bottom to fall out?
Jennifer: We tell him that we love him, and that we will be here for him when he's ready.
Kate: What if he never is? What if he can't come back from this?
Jennifer: He will. He will, and we have to have faith. There are a lot of people who love him. But he only has one mother.
Kate: I know, but he doesn't want to hear from me. You know, even if lucas did, I don't know where he is.
Abigail: I know where he is. And he needs you both right now.
Will: Put the bottle down, dad. It's okay.
Lucas: I can't give it up. When it's in my hand, when I have it, then I don't have to deal with gabi and sonny not letting me see my granddaughter. I don't have to deal with my mom firing me from my job. I don't have to imagine adrienne in justin's arms.
[Breathes shakily] And I don't have to have that memory that I keep having every time I look at my beautiful son. That memory that I have when you were in the morgue laying on that slab. I can't do that.
Lucas: If you take this from me.
Will: So you'd rather... drink yourself to death?
Lucas: [Sighs] You're not taking this away from me. It's all I have left.
Will: How about you hold on to me?
Lucas: I love you more than my own life, but you're not real. You're not here. You can't help me.
Will: [Sighs] Well, since I'm not getting through to you, I... I should go. I love you, dad.
Lucas: I love you, buddy.
[Soft dramatic music]
Sonny: You gotta make sure this is, uh... you know, ready in time for the wedding.
Paul: Ooh, word of warning. This is the man who's gonna make your work look so good, business is going to double.
Who are you?
Paul: Oh, I'm paul. I'm the other groom.
Oh. Three grooms?
Sonny: [Chuckles awkwardly] Thank you, thank you. I'm looking forward to seeing the tux.
Paul: Uh, what was that all about?
Sonny: Ah, nothing, nothing. You and jj get all your tuxedos situated?
Paul: Yeah, yeah, we're all suited up, and how are things going here?
Sonny: Good. Chad and I are all set too.
Paul: Actually, I meant after what happened at the church with lucas.
Sonny: Oh, that.
Paul: Yeah, that.
Sonny: It did bring up some emotions and some memories.
Paul: Yeah, me too.
[Sighs] Look, I think you and I need to have a long talk about will. And we need to do it before we get married.
Kate: Lucas, are you here? I don't think he's here.
Jennifer: Kate. Oh, my god, lucas!
Kate: Lucas, honey?
Jennifer: Oh, my god, lucas.
Kate: Lucas? Lucas? Wake up.
Kate: Oh, my god. Oh, my god.
