Jj: I am so sorry, theo. I never meant to shoot you. It was a-- a terrible mistake, which I will regret for the rest of my life. You have to wake up, theo. Please. Please wake up. Oh, thank god. Thank god you're okay.
Theo: I was hoping you would come.
Jj: I'm so sorry. Can you ever forgive me?
[Intense ominous music]
Lani: Thank you so much. I'll let my dad know now. That was julie. She and doug are opening up doug's place for thanksgiving to family and friends.
Abe: There's no way in hell that I'm giving thanks, not until my son opens his eyes.
[Clears throat] How's theo?
Abigail: He's the same. I know this is hard.
Chad: He's just a kid. He has his whole life ahead of him.
Abigail: I know, but he's gonna have it, okay? Um... I just spoke with sonny.
Chad: Yeah? He's back from memphis?
Abigail: Mm-hmm. And he had some really good news, chad. Will is alive, and he's here.
Chad: Sorry, what? That doesn't--doesn't-- what? That doesn't make--I don't know. How is that possible? I should go--I should go see him.
Abigail: No, no. Hang on. There's something that you need to know before you do.
Will: Yeah. Yeah. Listen, roger, I know-- I know susan is sick, and I know that she has hurt a lot of people, but, um, she's always been very kind to me and loved me very much, so I'm grateful for that, and-- yeah, just please tell her-- tell her I said that. Okay. All right, bye.
Marlena: [Clears throat]
Will: Oh, hi. Sorry, I didn't see you.
Marlena: It's fine. How did you sleep?
Will: Well, between trying to remember who I am and remember my husband and my mom and my daughter and this town and coming up with zip, not so well.
Marlena: Yeah. It's not easy.
Please be patient with yourself. And I can tell you that sometimes, well, memories come back when you least expect them.
Will: You're not gonna take me to a massive thanksgiving dinner and throw a bunch of people in my face, are you?
Marlena: [Laughs] No, no. No, I was thinking more of a quiet day. I did call gabi and invited her to bring arianna over.
Will: Oh. Yeah, that sounds-- that sounds great.
Marlena: Well, I know gabi's eager to see you, but... I didn't think she'd come quite so early.
[Doorbell ringing] Oh, my gosh!
[Laughs] I think she needs to switch to decaf.
Sami: Hi! Hi.
Will: What are you doing here?
Sami: It's thanksgiving. Where else would I be? I'm your mother.
Will: Not as far as I'm concerned.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Abe: Who is it?
Lani: It can wait.
This is lani. I can't get to the phone, but if you leave a message, I'll get back to you. Thank you.
[Knocking at door]
Jj: Gabi. What are you-- what are you doing here?
Gabi: Uh, well, I heard about what happened, and I just wanted to make sure you were okay.
Jj: I may never be okay again.
Gabi: Come here.
Chad: Will doesn't remember anyone or anything.
Abigail: Mm-mm, not so far. He just knows being ej dimera and living in memphis.
Chad: Sonny must be devastated. Will must be overwhelmed.
Abigail: Yeah. But I'm just hoping that being here with all of his friends and family, he's gonna have everything just come back to him.
Chad: He's gonna need people around him who love him.
Chad: Even if he doesn't remember them. I guess there's something to be thankful for after all today.
Chad: Let's go see that best friend.
Abigail: Let's go.
Sami: Well, I just found out that doug and julie are hosting this big thanksgiving celebration at their club, and everyone's gonna be there. I mean, everyone you know. So I thought if you saw all those familiar faces, it might really just make all those memories come back. You should get dressed.
Will: Do you want to take this one?
Marlena: Sure, honey. Um, sami... uh, I'm thinking that a big thanksgiving celebration is gonna be just too much too soon for will.
Sami: Well, we don't know that. Maybe we should just try. I think it'd be great.
Marlena: No, I disagree. He is having to absorb so much so fast. I think we have to respect that process.
Sami: Okay. I totally get that. So not--not a big celebration. How about just something super casual, you know? No pressure. We could just hang out and have a low-key thanksgiving. I brought something I wanted to show you.
Will: Uh, is that a duck?
Sami: You remember?
Will: Uh, no, I don'T.
Sami: You made it in the third grade for thanksgiving. It's supposed to be a turkey, but I thought that it was a duck. You must remember.
Will: No, I--it just kind of looks like a duck. I'm sorry. Are we--are we done?
Sami: Okay, look. I spent two years thinking that you were dead, okay? And I'm just gonna say this straight out. If anyone thinks that I'm just gonna disappear and not make sure that you get your memory back, they are as wacko as susan--
Will: Oh, shut up! I'm sorry. I'm sorry. What I meant to say was that susan is the only mom that I--that I know right now. So please, if you would, don't talk about her like that.
Sami: Yes, and I apologize. Of course. I understand. And the truth is that I will forever be grateful to her for--for saving your life. I mean... but you're stuck with me as your mom. When you look in the mirror and those blue eyes stare back at you, you got them from me.
Marlena: [Clears throat] Sami. I think it's time...
Sami: For me to leave. Right. [Sniffles] Yup, I get it. I'm just gonna leave this here. Hey, um... I love you.
Marlena: Sami. Look, we've talked about this. Will needs some time to adjust to what's happened.
Marlena: He has been traumatized. Don't you understand that? Look, I'm so sorry. I love you so much, and I know how painful this is for you. Just trust me on this. Trust me that I will do everything I can to help you and to help will.
[Crying] You trust me, mom. There's no way in hell I am risking losing my son again. No way in hell.
Eli: Lani. I'm so sorry about theo.
Lani: My dad hasn't left his side.
Eli: Yeah, I was-- I was just with my mom. She's devastated. She just keeps going over the surgery, trying to figure out what she could have done differently.
Lani: Your mom did everything that she could. Theo's stroke was just a risk of the surgery. Valerie didn't do anything wrong.
Eli: She still feels responsible.
Lani: Well, the only person that my dad blames for theo lying in that bed is jj.
Jj: This damn guilt is eating me alive, gabi. My job is to protect and serve. Protect. And now theo is in a coma because of me, because I didn't take one extra second that could have made the difference.
Gabi: Yes, I understand, but you cannot keep torturing yourself like this. You know that?
Jj: I breathe it. When I sleep, if I sleep, it's right there. This morning, I had a dream I went to visit theo at the hospital. He pulled out a gun and shot me.
Gabi: Jj, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Jj: I just need to see him, gabi. I need to apologize, to let him know how sorry I am. Even if theo can't hear me, I need to say the words. I need to tell him that I am sorry.
Marlena: Now, I'm not known as the world's greatest cook, but I can rustle up your favorite breakfast. So one denver omelet coming up.
Will: Oh, great. Except that my-- well, my new favorite is french toast.
Marlena: Oh, okay. French toast coming up.
Will: Thank you.
[Doorbell rings again] Okay.
Chad: There he is. Oh, welcome back to the land of the living.
Will: Thank you. You are?
Chad: Oh, right. Chad dimera, best friend. Abigail, cousin. No? Okay, hang on.
Chad: Ringing any bells?
Chad: No? Well, that's disappointing. Well, that's cool. You know, if you never remember us, that's cool too. Just--I'm just happy you're alive. Oh!
Eli: This can't be easy. I mean, caught between your dad and jj? Jj's your partner, your boyfriend. I feel for you.
Lani: Jj is a mess, and I want to be there for him. But my dad doesn't want me to go anywhere near him, and I don't blame him. Jj shot his son.
Eli: I understand how abe feels about what jj did, but how do you feel about it?
Gabi: Listen, I don't know what your plans are for the day, but it's-- it's thanksgiving.
Jj: There's no way in hell I'm feeling thankful.
Gabi: The day is about family and being with people who love you and letting those people be there for you.
Jj: And theo's family? Abe, lani? What do you think they're doing today, feeling today because of me? My god, what... what if he never wakes up?
Gabi: Miracles happen.
Gabi: Every single day.
Jj: I haven't seen any lately.
Gabi: Have you heard? About will? He's alive.
Chad: Yeah, and you swore that you'd be able to make it home from the party on your own, because it was just a short walk. And then I found you at 3:00 A.M. Naked in a hot tub, singing from the top of your lungs "good"-- the "good king wenceslas," yeah. And then you had no idea how you got there.
Abigail: Nothing? Nothing?
Will: No. Great story, though.
Abigail: Yeah, yeah. Well, you know, I do kind of hope that your first memory of us is better than a naked-in-the-hot-tub story, but...
Chad: I don'T.
Abigail: [Laughs] You and chad, you really are-- you were best friends.
Marlena: Oh, uh--
Abigail: Oh, hi.
Marlena: I hope you don't mind. I made the denver omelet and some french toast. I mean, why have to choose when you have two favorites? So there. Have them both.
Chad: We'll, uh-- we'll let you eat breakfast.
Abigail: Yeah. Sorry we didn't call, but chad was just really excited.
Marlena: Oh, oh, I understand. I understand. I just want to make sure that he doesn't get too overwhelmed with company.
Will: Um, uh, actually, you know, this is a lot of food, and I don't think I'm gonna be able to eat it all, so if it's okay with everybody...
Will: You're welcome to stay.
Marlena: Of course they can stay.
Abigail: He wants to stay.
Chad: With an omelet.
Will: So you and I were-- I mean, we were pretty close?
Abigail: Yeah, we were. But, you know, I totally get that this is all really new and I'm new. But if you need anything or you have any questions at all, just--just ask.
Will: Does that mean-- can I have one of those strawberries?
Abigail: Oh, yeah.
Will: Yeah? Okay.
Abigail: Yes. You can have them all.
Will: Oh, my gosh, okay.
Will: Thank you.
Abigail: Yeah, but don't touch this.
Abe: Please, god. Please let my son wake up. He has so much to live for, so many people that love him. Please. Please let him live.
[Knock at door]
Sami: Abe, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Roman: So any improvement since I was here last?
Lani: I keep going back to that night.
[Sighs] What if I had been the cop that was in the square and not jj? I could have shot my own brother.
Eli: But you weren't in that square. And if you had been, you might have acted differently.
Lani: And that's what I can't help but ask myself. Did jj have a choice? Did he have to fire his weapon?
Eli: Those are the big questions. And I'm gonna get the answers.
Gabi: Well, because this susan banks woman convinced will that he was ej dimera, he has no memory of being will horton. He has no memory of his friends, his family, his life.
Gabi: No. No, that's why I'm taking her to see him. You know, you should come with us. Another familiar face might help.
Jj: No. I can'T. I'm not in the place to see anybody, not even will.
Gabi: I understand.
Jj: Give ari a kiss for me.
Gabi: I will. Hey, if you ever want to talk, okay?
Jj: I know.
Chad: It's wild. I mean, I know I saw him and I hugged him, but I can't believe that will is actually alive.
Abigail: He's gonna get his memory back soon enough.
Chad: Well, some things are probably best left forgotten.
Abigail: Ben weston? On second thought, it is thanksgiving, so I'm gonna keep things positive. I'm grateful that will is alive, and I am grateful for my happy, healthy son and my amazing husband.
Chad: Oh. Well, I am thankful for my glass-half-full, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow, amazing, beautiful wife. I just wish that you could use some of that magic with theo, you know? Wave a magic wand, and he'd be kicking my ass in chess by tomorrow.
Abigail: He will be.
Chad: Well, mind if I head back to the hospital?
Abigail: Well, I was actually thinking maybe we could go by jj'S. He's having a pretty rough time.
Chad: Nah, I-- I don't want to do that.
Abigail: What do you mean? Jj loves theo. I mean, this was an accident, chad.
Chad: It wasn't too long ago that he pulled his gun on ben in the police station.
Abigail: That was a very different thing.
Chad: Jj's a hothead. Act first, think later. And...he pulled the trigger too fast.
Lani: So are you trying to get information out of me?
Eli: Rafe and I are taking charge of the investigation. We need to know why your brother was in that alley and if jj was justified in discharging his weapon. We'll need you to give a statement.
Lani: I wasn't with jj. I didn't see anything. All I heard was a shot.
Eli: That may be true. But as jj's partner, your testimony as to his actions and his state of mind are critical to us getting the truth.
Jj: Look, I don't want to shoot you, but I will. For the last time, drop the gun!
[Gunshot] I didn't know it was theo.
Lani: Why did you shoot?
Sami: We know how strong theo is. He's gonna come back to you.
Abe: That's what I keep telling myself.
Roman: It's mom. There's a lot going on. Could take a while. Hey, mom.
Sami: So... if there's anything I can do, please know I'm here.
Abe: You shouldn't be standing here with a grieving father. You should be celebrating. Your son's alive; it's a miracle.
Sami: Well, I believe there's enough miracles for all of us. I do feel guilty that my prayers were answered and that will is alive while you're standing here and theo is--
Abe: Never, never, never, never feel guilty for wrapping your arms around your child.
Sami: Well, I haven't been able to do that yet. You know, will doesn't remember anything.
[Sighs] And it's like he doesn't see me or hear me. And he doesn't know how much I love him.
Marlena: Oh! Hello.
Gabi: Hi. Oh.
Marlena: Hi, there.
Gabi: Sorry. She kind of scraped her hand.
Marlena: Oh, dear. What happened?
Arianna: I hurt myself.
Marlena: Oh, my gosh. Look at that; you did. You know what? I've got some band-aids in my medical bag in the trunk of my car.
Gabi: Oh, yeah?
Marlena: So why don't i take you down? We'll get a band-aid, and I think there may be even a lollipop in there.
Gabi: Thank you. Thank you. She's just so excited to see will.
Marlena: We'll be right back.
Gabi: Will. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Will: No, it's okay. You know, I've been getting hugged by strangers for days now, so...
[Stammers] Go for it.
Gabi: [Sobs] Oh, my god. This is the most--this is the most amazing-- this is the best thing ever.
Will: I'm glad you're happy to see me.
Gabi: I want to hug you again, but I'm gonna control myself.
Will: Okay. Look, is--is arianna with you?
Gabi: Oh, yes. She had a boo-boo, so marlena's taking care of it, but I'm glad I get a couple minutes with you.
Gabi: You're here.
Gabi: You're alive. I mean, well, you don't remember anything, but you're here. That's what counts.
Will: Yeah. No, I wish I did, because it hurts to see-- to keep seeing that.
Gabi: See what?
Will: You know, just the disappointment.
Gabi: What? No, no. No, no, no. No disappointment. Just gratitude and hope and happiness. And that's all it is. You know, I took this. It was a really great day. And it doesn't--it doesn't matter if you remember anything, if you never remember anything. We love you, okay? Nothing changes that.
Eli: Look, I didn't come here to ambush you about this. Okay? I'm here as a friend. But I will need your statement sooner rather than later.
Lani: I can't believe this is happening.
Eli: I know it's tough. And look, if you need anyone to talk to off the record...
Eli: All right, well, I'm headed to doug's place for thanksgiving. I'll have someone make your dad a plate and run it over. You too?
Lani: [Chuckles] Thank you.
Eli: Come here. See you later.
Jj: This is jj deveraux. Leave a message.
Abigail: Are you blaming jj? You think it's his fault, don't you?
Chad: I-- I have questions, yeah. Jj, he's trained to deal with those kinds of situations. He's trained to make split-second decisions under pressure all the time. Even if he didn't know it was theo, I think that maybe there was a less extreme measure he could have taken than shooting an unarmed kid, yes.
Abigail: Okay, well, first of all, he thought he was armed, and he's completely wrecked over this. And I think it would be really great if we showed him some understanding and support instead of judging him and accusing him, because we are supposed to care about him.
Chad: Well, I don't-- I-- I'm sorry, but I think we're gonna have to agree to disagree.
Abigail: I'm sorry. I mean, I'm worried about both of them.
Chad: Look, let's just grab thomas and head over to doug's place, teach him how to tear into a drumstick.
Abigail: I love you.
Chad: I love you too. And we'll get through this, okay? I'm sorry.
Abigail: It's okay.
Abe: Thank you for coming. I hope you get your son back.
Sami: I hope the same for you. I'm thinking about you, abe. See you later, dad.
Ronan: Okay, honey. Bye-bye.
Abe: Thank you for bringing sami by.
Roman: Hey, you need your friends around you. You can't do it alone.
Abe: I'm gonna get back to theo.
Roman: No, you're not. You need to eat.
Abe: You know, if one more person mentions the damn holiday--
Roman: No, it is you and me and some food.
Abe: I'll get something later.
Roman: Or you could come to the cafeteria right now with the friend who won't take "no" for an answer. And you know that theo would be with me on this. You ever seen that kid pass up a meal? Now, come on. I'm telling you, come on.
Chad: Hey, sami.
Abigail: You on your way to see will?
Sami: I just came from there. Couldn't get rid of me fast enough.
Chad: We actually had breakfast with him this morning.
Sami: You had breakfast with will?
Abigail: Yeah, he insisted that we stay.
Sami: How classy of you to twist the knife, abby.
Chad: Is there a problem between you and will?
Sami: Yes, susan banks poisoned will against me. She made him think all sorts of horrible things. So once he gets his memory back, it'll be fine. He'll know they're not true. But in the meantime, my mother's professional opinion is that I need to keep my distance so I don't push him, so I have to wait to be summoned.
Chad: Well, it won't be forever.
Sami: It already is.
Abigail: Gabi and arianna are there right now, so I don't know; maybe ari will be the key to him remembering the man that he was.
Chad: Should we go? See you.
Gabi: I could still-- still see the two of you at the beach, ari running towards the water, waves crashing behind her, up and down the shore, you right there with her.
Will: Can you tell me more?
Gabi: Yeah, there was-- there was this sand crab that ari found, and you said that it was a king crab, that every king needs a castle. So the two of you started to build this huge sand castle together. And then we went off to get some lunch, and when we got back, the tide had come in and washed it away. And ari started crying and crying, but you, you swept her up, and you twirled her around. That's all she wanted. She just wanted to be in her daddy's arms. And that's when I-- that's when I got this.
Marlena: There we go.
Jj: You're the gentlest soul I've ever known, and I put you here. One stupid moment. If I could just go back, take that moment back, make another choice. I am so sorry, theo. I wish to god it was me lying in this bed instead of you. You should be beating chad at chess and being crazy in love with claire. That's why you have to wake up. Do you hear me? You have to come back to us.
Lani: What are you doing?
Abe: Roman dragged me to the cafeteria. The only way I could get away from him was to get the food to go.
Lani: And you just threw it out.
Abe: I need to be with my son.
Abe: What the hell are you doing? Get your hands off my son!
