Episode #13200 ~ John gets Roger to admit to Will that Susan has been lying to him; Paul thanks Sonny for defending him, but Sonny makes clear all is not forgiven; a familiar face visits Susan; Eve blasts Brady and Victor for trying to set her up.

Provided By Suzanne

Sami: She's trying to take will! You are not leaving.

Susan: You wanna bet? Come on, we're gonna get our stuff, we're gonna pack our bags, we're gonna get on the fastest plane we can find--

Sami: No, you're not! You're not taking my son anywhere!

Sonny: And you're not taking my husband.

John: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hold on, everyone. I found someone that will trusts who'S...gonna tell him the truth.

Susan: Roger! Oh, thank goodness, honey. Now you can back me up. Come here, roger. Come here. Now, you tell ej that these people are just a bunch of stupid, stupid liars, okay?

Sami: Oh, no, you are the liar.

Susan: They're trying to take away my precious son, roger. Now, just go set 'em straight, okay? Tell them this is not will horton, this is my son, ej dimera--go ahead, tell 'em.

Roger: Sorry, babe, I can't do that--not anymore. All these people are telling you the truth.

[Dramatic musical flourish]

Maggie: Oh, victor... I can't believe something like this even happened here.

Victor: Something like what?

Maggie: Uh... theo's shooting! What else would I be talking about? I spoke to jennifer. She said jj's a wreck. Blames himself.

Victor: Well, he did pull the trigger, didn't he?

Maggie: He didn't know it was theo.

[Fire crackling] And now that beautiful young man... is in a coma, and he may never wake up. Oh, poor abe.

Victor: It's all very tragic.

Maggie: [Sighs] With all this going on here, there just--there doesn't feel like there's much to be grateful for this thanksgiving.

Brady: Actually, there is. I just spoke to justin, and it turns out that will horton... he's alive after all.

[Suspenseful music]

Will: Are you serious? Roger, a-are you saying I'M... I'm not...ej? That I'M...will horton?

Roger: Yes, you are, son.

Will: And so y-you're really my husband?

Sonny: Yes.

Susan: Just...just don'T... don't listen to anything they have to say. How--[Huffs] John got you turned around on me.

Roger: Oh, sweetie, you know that's not true--john just made me realize that we couldn't keep up this lie any longer.

Susan: It's not a lie. It's not a lie.

Roger: Truth's gonna come out sooner or later--they can run dna tests and get the concrete proof they need. I just thought it'd best coming from me.

Susan: No, I can't hear you. I'm not listening to you. We're gonna go, ej. Come on, we gotta go before they poison your mind again--

Will: No. No, no, no, mom! I'm not going anywhere! Not until I get some answers.

[Intense music]

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Victor: Are you saying that will has been with that banks woman all this time?

Brady: Not only that, will's been...brainwashed into thinking he's ej.

Maggie: What?!

Victor: Oh, good lord.

Brady: My dad, marlena, sami, paul, sonny-- they're all down in memphis trying to figure this whole mess out.

Maggie: And what about lucas? Does he know that will's alive?

Brady: Adrienne has called him, but he's not responding.

Maggie: Oh, god knows what state he's in with the way he's been drinking.

Brady: Is it that bad?

Maggie: He's not going to meetings at all. I am so worried about him.

Victor: All it takes is one drink to start that downward spiral.

Maggie: Well, maybe this news will be the splash of cold water lucas needs to get back on track.

Victor: Have you spoken with sonny?

Brady. No. No. But he has to be thrilled that will is back.

[Dramatic musical sting]

Eve: So will is still alive?

Maggie: Isn't it wonderful?

Eve: Excuse me if I don't open a bottle of bubbly.

[Liquid pouring] My child's still dead.

Susan: Ej?

[Edgy music]

Roger: It's okay.

Will: How long have you known, roger?

Roger: When I first met your mom, susan, she was grieving the loss of her son. I tried to make her happy. Nothing worked. Then one day, she showed up with you. All of a sudden, that smile was back. She lied when she said that she planned to kill will on the anniversary of ej's death. Susan couldn't kill a fly. She just needed to fill that big, gaping hole in her heart. She decided you were gonna be the one to do it. Found it fitting to take sami's son since, in her own mind, sami took hers.

Susan: No, roger, don't talk anymore, please.

Will: Let him speak.

Susan: Don't talk--

Will: Let him speak, mom!

Roger: So her and dr. Rolf kept an eye on you... on the anniversary of ej's death, followed you to some apartment. You were in there for a long time, then some man showed up.

Sonny: Ben. He was the one who...who killed you. We thought.

Roger: After a while, that same man left the apartment. He looked really upset. And that's when susan and rolf went in.

Sami: And found you.

Roger: At first they thought you were already dead.

[Tense music]

Susan: He killed him! Oh, no, he can't be dead--will's supposed to replace my ej!

Rolf: Yes. Perhaps he still can.

[Suspenseful music]

Yeah, he's breathing and stable.

Susan: Does that mean my plan could still work? What are you doin'?

Rolf: I'll tell you once we're out of here. I don't want that lunatic coming back and killing us as well.

Susan: [Indistinct]

Roger: That no-good doc injected you with...some drug that makes you seem like you're dead, that way when your body was found, all your loved ones would...

Sonny: We thought we lost you forever.

[Tense music]

Sami: You're a monster. You didn't just hurt me. You hurt every person here who loves will.

Susan: Shut your mouth, sami brady, shut your big, fat mouth.

Sami: You didn't even care.

Will: How did I--excuse me! How did I end up in memphis?

Susan: [Whispering] Don't you say one more word. Not one more word.

Roger: Susan and rolf waited for your body to be found and taken to the morgue.


Rolf: Are you sure the coast is clear?

Susan: I'm positive. Do it right now!

[Suspenseful music]

Will: [Gasps] What--what's happening?

Susan: Don't you worry, my precious ej. Your mama's right here. I'm right here.

Sami: So rolf did...bring will back to life?

Roger: Unfortunately, he also erased all his memories. Rolf stayed behind to oversee the burial, but...obviously will's body wasn't in the casket...'cause he was already with susan.

Sami: How could you let her do it? How could you just stand there and do nothing?

Roger: 'Cause he fixed her. I knew it wasn't right, but after she lost ej, she couldn't function.

Sami: Neither could I when she took my son from me.

Roger: She took you and made you into the son she lost. And it seemed like...all the broken pieces were finally put back together.

Susan: He's just lyin'. All of 'em are just lyin'. All of 'em are lyin', ej. Don't listen to anything they say, okay?

[Whispers] Don't listen to anything.

Roger: It's over, baby. You gotta let him go.

Susan: How could you do this? You stabbed me in the back! I thought you loved me!

Roger: I do--that's why I had to tell the truth.

[Susan whimpers] Susie, need help.

Susan: What I need...

Roger: You need help.

Susan: No. I need my boy. I want my boy to come back to me.

Sami: Hey, hey!

Will: That's why... that's why you kept me so sheltered. That's why every time I had questions about my past, you would change the subject... because you didn't want me to find out that I'm not your son.

Susan: [Whispers] You are my son. You are. Yeah.

Marlena: He's not. Honey, he's not. Look at me. Ej's dead.

Susan: No! [Mumbles] I won't listen to her. I won't listen to her!

Marlena: I know how hard this is for you. I understand. It was your little boy. It was the person you brought into this world. It was a person you would do anything and everything for. I know. I know how much it hurts. The truth is... ej's gone. And that's unbearably painful. And it's unthinkable. But it's the truth. And trying to hold on to will... will not bring him back.

[Somber music]

Susan: What have I done? I'm so sorry!

[Sniffles] I'm so, so sorry. I just miss my boy so much. I just wanted to hold him in my arms again. I wanted to be a mother again. See...I just really, really wanted to be his mother. My life was so sad... when I lost my ej. My precious boy. I'm so sorry.

[Sniffles] I'm so, so sorry.

[Soft instrumentals]

Maggie: I'm terribly sorry for everything you've been through, eve. There's nothing more painful than losing a child. I know that all too well. But being bitter and resentful about other people's good fortune--

Victor: And if that's the way you're gonna be, you can just leave.

Maggie: Victor!

Victor: I'm sure that henderson would be thrilled to death to help you pack.

Eve: Victor, victor, victor. I'd think you'd show a little bit more kindness to me, considering I have you and your grandson over a barrel.

Maggie: What are you talking about?

Eve: Oh--they didn't tell you about my little trip downtown?

Maggie: No. They didn'T.

Brady: Maggie, it's nothing that you need to worry about--trust me.

Victor: Brady's right, maggie. No reason for you to hear this harpy go on.

Maggie: I'll decide... what I need to hear and what i don'T. Go on, eve.

Eve: Well, it seems that henderson found that ugly amulet among my things, and brady decided it was proof that I had murdered deimos. Or at least that's what he told the salem police when he called them to tell them to arrest me for murder.

Maggie: Did you kill him?

Eve: No, of course I didn'T. When the police checked out my airtight alibi, I was released, thank you very much.

Maggie: Well, then, how did the amulet end up in your things?

Eve: Well, I can only assume that it was planted by someone who wanted to frame me for my husband's murder. And I do believe that that someone is... brady.

[Tense music]

John: Ambulance is here. They're ready for susan.

Marlena: I spoke to the head of psychiatry at the hospital. I explained what happened and told them that... susan's coming in and she's had a psychotic break.

Roger: Thank you. You're good people. I'm sorry for all the trouble we caused. Come on, darling. Let's get you some help.

[Emotional music]

Susan: I love you.

Roger: Come on. Everything's gonna be all right.

Will: [Sniffles] I've, uh... I've never seen her like that before.

Sonny: Just as long as no one called her out on her lie, she...was fine. But what she did--

Will: She's still... a good mother.

Sami: that that's over with, we can help you work on getting your memory back now.

Sonny: Sami.

Sami: Don't you think we could just...get him on a flight back to salem?

Will: What is wrong with you?

[Somber music]

[Shouting] What is wrong with you? My mom just had a complete mental breakdown. I'm not leaving her.

Sami: Will, she's not your--

[Intense music]

(Vo) more "doing chores for mom"

Sami: After everything that lying witch put him through... how can will still defend her?

Sonny: He obviously cares a lot about her.

Sami: Look, I don't care what kind of stockholm syndrome will is going through--I'm his mother...and I'm not going to lose him again.

Marlena: Sami... will's whole world... everything he knows to be real and true...has been turned upside down. You can't push him on this.

Sami: I just don't wanna give susan the chance to suck him back in.

Paul: Well, I don't think susan's in any shape to manipulate anyone.

Sami: I don't remember anyone asking your opinion.

John: Whoa, whoa, whoa, i know tensions are high here, sami, but we all want the same thing--it's just for will to remember who he used to be.

Sami: I don't know, john, if everyone here wants that.

Marlena: Okay, I'm gonna go to the hospital, check on susan and will.

Sami: Great. I'll go with you.

Marlena: No.

Sami: Mom...please try to understand where I'm coming from--I don't want to lose my son again.

Marlena: [Softly] I do understand that. I know how desperate you are to be with him. To have him know that you love him, to see him heal. But honey...right now is not the time. Come on, let me just... let me talk to will, okay? Alone.

[Emotional music]

Will: How long are they gonna keep her here?

Roger: I don't know yet. They, uh...doc is gonna do an evaluation before they make any decisions.

Will: I've never seen her this upset, roger.

Roger: I should never have let this gone on as long as i did.'re the only thing holding her together.

Will: Well, you know, we don't have to talk about that now. I just, uh... I'm here to help.

Roger: As much as I hate to say it... the best way for you to help susan right now... is to just leave.

Maggie: Is it true, brady, did you?

Brady: I did not...frame eve.

Eve: Well, the police might disagree with you on that one. In fact, they probably would have talked to you already and questioned you if they weren't dealing with the fallout of theo carver's shooting.

Maggie: Eve, you can't believe that brady framed you. I mean, he would never do something like that.

Eve: Brady and gramps here would like nothing better than to have me out of this house and out of their company. But guess what, guys. I'm not goin' anywhere. In fact, if you force my hand, I'll go straight to the press and tell them all about the little stunt brady pulled.

Brady: You have no proof that I set you up.

Eve: Well, brady, somebody in this house certainly did. Which means somebody in this house murdered my husband.

[Phone rings] Oh! Someone just got saved by the bell. Eve. Kirakis. Oh, yes, no, no, this is a fine time. I just need to grab my notes. Excuse me. The job of the ceo is never done.

Maggie: You said xander didn't succeed in killing deimos. Was that a lie? Or did you...kill your brother instead?

Will: I'm not here to yell at her....roger. I'm just...worried.

Roger: I know you are. But...I don't think having you here when she wakes up is gonna help.

Will: I'm not...going to abandon her. I'm her s--I'm her--

Roger: You're not her son. That doesn't mean she doesn't love you. You filled that place in her heart that her real son left behind.

Will: Maybe that's not such a bad thing?

Roger: [Chuckles] It's not good, will. Making you a replacement for ej kept her from dealing with her loss and kept you from... sounds like a pretty good life.

Will: If I leave her and she wakes up and I'm not there--

Roger: Then--then she's gonna have to deal with the truth. God knows living a lie hasn't done her any good.

Marlena: Roger's right. I can tell you from experience that your presence here will only hurt susan. The best thing you can do for her... is stay away from her.

[Soft music]

I saw the change in rich when we moved into the new house.

Brady: Neither one of us tried to frame eve.

Maggie: How do you explain the amulet?

Brady: I have no idea where that thing came from.

Maggie: Why don't I believe you?

Victor: Maggie and me have a few minutes?

Brady: Are you sure?

[Lightly edgy music]

Victor: I did not kill my brother. And neither did brady.


Victor: Maggie, please, just trust what I'm telling you.

Maggie: Well, it's obvious you're keeping something from me, victor.

Victor: You know all that you need to know. Neither one of us killed deimos. Do you believe me?

Maggie: I do. I don't know why I do... but I do.

[Light knocking]

Marlena: Will, it's gram-- it's marlena evans. May I come in?

Will: Sure. But I'm gonna tell you right now, if you're here to try and convince me to come back to salem, it's not gonna work, so--

Marlena: No, no. I'm not.

Will: Okay.

Marlena: I actually have been... a little worried about you. How are you feeling?

[Thoughtful music]

Will: I have no idea. It's--you know, it's too big. It's too much, it doesn't-- it doesn't even feel real.

Marlena: I'm sure that's true.

Will: And I'm sure you must think I'm an... I'm an idiot for believing susan's lies all this time.

Marlena: No. I think you're incredibly loyal to somebody who, in many ways, was very good to you.

Will: She was. That doesn't mean that I'm not... frustrated and angry with her for what she did, but I just can't--I can't suddenly stop thinking of her as my mom.

Marlena: I understand.

Will: And I'm not gonna abandon her.

Marlena: Even though, by staying here, you could impede her recovery?

Will: Well, then what--what-- what--[Sighs] What, then? What, I-I leave her in the hospital? Go off with just a bunch of strangers?

Marlena: No, no, no. We are not strangers. We actually are your family.

Will: Yeah, but why would that mean anything to me when i don't--I can't remember any of you? I don't even like some of you! I'm sorry, I'm not talking about you--I'm talking about...sami. I mean, all that I know of her, the horrible...things that susan's told me.

Marlena: [Softly] Yeah. Look, I'm not asking you to come home for sami. Or for sonny or...or for me. I'm thinking that maybe... you should come home to...try to find out who you are.

Will: What?

Marlena: [Laughing] We've had this conversation before.

Will: What, are you telling me that this isn't the first time that I've had amnesia?

Marlena: No, no, not at all. I'm just saying that there was a time when you were struggling with who you... with who you are. You know, you... you weren't sure whether or not you were really gay.

[Dramatic chords]

Sami: Still can't believe susan brainwashed will into thinking he was ej.

John: Hey...he's alive. That's what's important here. And now that the truth is out, he knows who he used to be.

Sami: But doesn't accept it yet. If he did, he wouldn't care what happens to that nut job.

John: Well, you know, he's just gotta get his bearings, samantha, and what you need to do is just--you gotta take a step back.

Sami: Enough, john! I can't take you lecturing me on how to handle my son right now, okay?

Paul: He's only trying to help, sami.

Sami: Oh, really? You're gonna pipe up? Did you help will when you saw him and didn't tell any of us?

John: There's no point in going back over this again.

Sami: But, of course, you don't want will to remember, do you, because you know the second will remembers everything, sonny is going to dump you.

Sonny: Sami, stop.

Sami: You should have done it already--the second that he lied to us when he didn't tell us about seeing will.

Sonny: He came clean in the end.

Sami: What if I'd had the chance to talk to will the last time--maybe everything would have been different!

Sonny: One or two days wouldn't have made a big difference.

Sami: How can you say that? For all we know, susan upped her tracker jack serum on him after she realized we were getting close.

John: Come on, I doubt that, sami.

Sami: Really? She had his bags packed--she was ready to take will and disappear again. We might never have found him, thanks to paul.

Sonny: Okay, listen, hey, he apologized profusely to all of us--I mean, what else do you want him to do?

Sami: Just can't believe you're standing here defending him to me.

John: Look, come on, let's just everybody calm down here. Come on, really--

Sami: I'm not gonna calm down! That woman brainwashed my son. She convinced him that he was someone else, and you're telling me to just let that go and hope everything works out for the best? Get to know me.

[Heavy music]

John: Samantha!

[Woman] Nope!

Eve: Hey, hey, hey!

Brady: You need to stop.

Eve: Excuse me!

Brady: You need to stop with these baseless accusations. You hear me?

Eve: Well, you know what, brady, you didn't seem to mind throwing 'em around on me. In fact, if it were up to you, I'd be off in statesville right now.

Brady: Hey, I was just doing my civic duty, eve.

Eve: Well, I'm just claiming what is rightfully mine as deimos's widow.

Brady: What's rightfully yours.

Eve: Mm-hmm.

Brady: You manipulated your way into a phony wedding to get money and power, eve. The only thing that's rightfully yours is to be exposed... as the pathetic gold digger that you are.

Eve: [Softly] That's harsh... especially coming from someone that I once considered a pretty good guy. What the hell happened to you?

Will: She told me... on several occasions that I was not gay. Not that, you know, there's something wrong with it or she had a problem with it. But I-I think... that, you know, now knowing that she wanted me... to be ej that she just thought maybe it didn't really fit with who he was.

Marlena: Yes, that's right. You--you never said anything to her.

Will: No. I let her think that she talked me out of it. And I figured that I must have just been in the closet... since I was supposedly married to a woman.

Marlena: I'm so sorry that you had keep that part of yourself a secret.

Will: Thank you. Apparently, it wasn't--it wasn't any easier when I did come out. Sonny...told me how I fought it and how I was with arianna's mother because I was afraid to admit the truth.

Marlena: No, you were just confused. You--you were just... you were trying very hard to-- to figure out who you were.

Will: Did I...figure out-- figure out who I was?

Marlena: Yes, you did. It took a while, and it was-- it was painful for you, but... the real you finally came out. It was wonderful. You were--you were so at peace. You were so happy. I wish you could feel that way again.

Will: Thing is, though, that I was--I was... I was happy with this life. And I don't know...[Stammers] I don't know if I'm ready to leave it behind.

Marlena: Well, what you know about it is that... you're living a lie. The same as you were before you--before you came out.

[Contemplative music] You said to me one time... you never wanted to feel that way again. You always wanted to be true to yourself... true to who you really were. I don't think that's changed. Honey... why don't you... just come home and see for yourself?

Bob starts his day

with a delicious

Brady: You wanna know what happened to me?

Eve: Yeah.

Brady: Women like you. Women like you... who I thought were loving and caring and decent, and it turned out they weren'T. Women like kristen and nicole. And your baby sister. Women like that who sucked me in and told me that they loved me, and then they took every good thing that I did for 'em and took advantage of me. That's why I am...who I am now.

Eve: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I haven't heard from theresa either.

Brady: Oh. I'm so glad that bitch is gone. Yeah, she would have ruined tate's life just like she ruined it's good that she's gone and out of this house and out of my life, 'cause you know she trashed every single thing that we ever had. I'm glad she's gone. You know what? She probably would have been just as bad a mother as you were.

[Dark music]

Brady: You wanna play? You wanna play with me?

Eve: That's right, brady. You go ahead...hit me. Show me what a monster you really are.

Marlena: There are so many people waiting for you. I mean, people that... love you so much and have missed you so much. And there'S...there's arianna.

Will: I know, my little girl. Sonny told me about her. I just wish I could...remember.

Marlena: Yeah, well, that-- that could take some time.

Will: But it will...happen, though, right, eventually?

Marlena: Will...

[Sighs] There are no guarantees here. You know, maybe just... come back and see your family, your friends. And see how it feels to be will horton. You don't have to make any promises about staying, you know, just... well, I...just... just...just think about it.

Will: Okay.

Marlena: Well, I, um... I'd better go. Let everybody know that you're okay.

Will: Mm-hmm.

Marlena: I hope I get to see you again.

[Contemplative music]

Could I just give you a hug? Oh...ohh!

[Softly] It is so good to see you. I accept I don't conquer

[Tense music]

Brady: I would never... hit you.

Eve: You sure about that?

Brady: Yeah. But I will warn you. If you try to go public with your crazy theory about me trying to frame you...

Eve: You'll what? Kill me like you killed deimos?

Brady: I didn't kill deimos.

Eve: Get out.

[Edgy music] I said get...out.

[Edgy music]

Marlena: It's been a lot for will to take in.

Sami: But did you convince him to come home with us?

Marlena: No. No. I was just trying to persuade him... that would be a good thing for him. But it really is up to will.

Sonny: But did you get the sense that he would come home?

Marlena: No. No, I didn't get that sense.

Sami: So we just...hang out here and wait?

Marlena: You know, I-I think we should all just, uh, go home. And I've checked online. There are plenty of flights available.

Sami: No.

Marlena: Honey, there's not much more we can do here--

Will: Think there's room for one more?

[Emotional music]

Roger: Thank you for coming so quickly.

Mary: Poor susan. What my sister did was wrong. But she was misguided in her grief. Deep down inside, she's got a good heart, you know. Unlike that kristen dimera... who I don't think ever had a heart.

[Ominous chords] And if she did, it was probably just A...burned up piece-a coal burnt to a crisp. From all those years of burnin' in hell.

Kristen: Oh, you stupid, stupid, delusional fool, susan, trying to turn will horton into the poor man's ej dimera. If you only knew... you could have had the real thing...after all.
