The ladies go off to shop online for Theo and the men bond. John offers support to his friend. The ladies return to eat cheesecake and John comforts Lexi. He promises to be there for Theo and Abe. "I'll even take him to a damned Cubs game if he wants, as long as it's at Yankee Stadium!" Lexi laughs and feels lucky to call him her friend. John chokes back tears. They eat cake and Lexi feels tired so she goes off to bed. Marlena and John weep once she's out of the room.

At the square, EJ gives Will some errands to run. Will is surprised to see EJ taking this so seriously. Will ignores a call from Sami and EJ assumes he's upset because Sami discussed private matters with EJ. He says Sami was merely looking for a way to make things right but Will says it didn't go down that way and he can't forgive her. EJ thinks Will may be wrong about Sami. Will snipes, "She shot you in the head." EJ grins and points out Will did as well. What happens if Sami really changes this time? Will calls EJ on taking sides but he's not. Will thinks EJ must be proud that Stefano is the big hero right now. EJ says he was in the dark about it all along and isn't happy that Stefano acted alone. It's not the first time Stefano has done this. Will gets a look. EJ goes on to say Stefano has been undermining him. Will's surprised EJ didn't fire him. EJ is confused. He plays along and gets Will to admit that Stefano forced him to make sure Rafe and Nicole knew about the grief sex.
Kate overhears Sami leaving a message for Will at the pub and makes snide comments before asking what's up. Eventually, Sami explains what happened the day Will came out. Kate's surprised Sami didn't know and claims she's more sensitive. Sami snorts. "You're about as sensitive as sandpaper." Kate thinks Sami's focus on cheating on Rafe made her blind to her son's issues. Kate knows Sami felt guilty and it wasn't her intention to hurt Will. Kate's been there and she knows Will still loves her. Kate thinks Sami knew deep down that her son was gay. She's sure Will feels he has lost his mother because of this and tells Sami to be patient and compassionate and keep her feelings in check. Sami thanks Kate for the advice and they get back to sniping at each other.
Lexi reveals her health is going downhill faster than she expected.
Bo has a gun...
