Carrie agrees that he's made her job easier and she's relieved. Will says he's relieved as well. Roman asks Sami if she knew about this. Will says Sami, Lucas, Marlena, and Sonny knew and he was telling people as he wanted to tell Roman but he got arrested. Roman thinks telling him would've saved a lot of trouble. Sami thinks he handled it the best he could. Roman says he can't be expected to suddenly say this is great as this is new to him. Roman asks for a break since it will take some getting used to. Sami reminds him that Will is still himself. Will tells her it's okay. Rafe tells Will that it's great that he has an alibi but the press is going to get a hold of this so his coming out will become public. Carrie offers to talk to Justin about the media but first she takes Rafe and Roman to talk about the charges. Will turns back to Sami and apologizes.

Sami clarifies that he handled it the best he could and is innocent. Sami asks Roman if he has a problem with Will being gay. Roman says his only problem is the reaction Will is going to get it when it comes out. Sami wants to focus on Roman's reaction. Roman says he knows the world is changing and people are more open now and he's glad that things are moving in the right direction. Roman says he's still seen things that he hopes they never do. Sami wants to focus on the positives and be proud of Will being brave to clear his name. Will reveals that it was EJ who made him see that he didn't have a choice.

Bo and Hope say they are here to help as Abe says they lost Lexie too. EJ adds that she touched all of their lives. Bo states that they will never forget her. Lexie's spirit goes to the stairs and disappears.
Sami tells Roman that she wants to talk to him and make sure that he knows that being gay isn't a choice. Roman gets it and wishes they could have avoided the arrest. Carrie adds that no one knew his alibi had to do with Will being gay. Roman wishes Sami would have told him. Sami says she wouldn't have because it was Will's decision to come out. Roman asks how Sami took the news. Sami admits it was terrible but she realized that she wants what's best for Will and for him to be happy. Roman says he will always love Will and this doesn't change that as he's a great kid but he does have concerns about his job with EJ and that he had a gun so he can't figure out where his head is at.
Will meets with Sonny at the Pub and tells him the charges have been dropped. Sonny tells him that he never thought he was guilty. Will informs Sonny that he had to tell everybody that he was at The Spot with Neil to get the charges dropped. Sonny asks how he feels. Will doesn't know since telling some people was one thing and he was just getting used to the idea but now the whole town will know. Sonny encourages Will that it won't matter and that he should just live his life since the people who know him love and support him. Sonny then hugs Will.
Andrew starts to tell Gabi but she tells him to forget it since it won't matter if Chad and Melanie don't talk unless she gets Chad to fall in love with her first. Melanie continues trying to escape. Gabi tells Andrew that she hopes that wherever Melanie is, she hopes she is serious about forgetting about Chad and moving on.
