He's shocked but she explains with some anger that Sami and Will are surrounded by danger and chaos and she's worried he could wind up in the hospital next. Marlena walks up and eavesdrops. Sonny leaves the room and Marlena starts yelling about Adrienne attacking her family. Adrienne shrugs. She was merely looking after her son and said nothing Marlena hasn't said before.
