    Grandpa, I'm Gay.

    Wednesday, June 20 2012
    Abe and EJ make peace, Andrew has something to show Gabi, and Will comes out to Roman.


    Bo and Hope watch Ciara and Theo playing at home. When Ciara asks when Uncle Abe and Aunt Lexi are coming back, Theo tells her his mommy just went to heaven. Hope starts to cry while Bo's jaw drops.



    In their garden, Abe sobs over Lexi's body, begging her not to leave him. Her ghost floats outside her body and she smiles down at him. She tells him he'll be fine. "I need you to believe me." Abe feels he's all alone without her but Lexi's ghost tells him he's not alone. He has their son, friends and wonderful memories. Abe cries that he's not ready. "I'm never going to be ready," he bawls. Lexi tells him she'll never leave him and then hugs him. Hope arrives and Abe tells her Lexi's gone. Hope starts to cry while Lexi's spirit hovers nearby.



    Gabi finds Andrew at the park and gushes about Melanie leaving Chad. Andrew recalls kidnapping Melanie but acts surprised. Now she has her shot with Chad. Andrew thinks Melanie might stay away forever. Gabi wishes she could be that fortunate but isn't sure Chad sees her for more than a friend. Andrew tells Gabi it'll be easy to keep Chad from talking to Melanie. Gabi's confused.



    Melanie pounds on the door of her cell. She removes the bobby pin from her hair and attempts to unlock the door. Andrew and Gabi walk into the outer room. Andrew says it used to be a dark room. Gabi asks what this has to do with keeping Melanie and Chad from talking.



    At the mansion, EJ orders Will to tell the police the truth about what happened the night his father was murdered. Will worries about coming out to the public this way. EJ receives a call from Hope, who whispers she's at Lexi's and she's sorry. "She passed away a few minutes ago." EJ stammers a thank-you and hangs up. He tells Will what happened. Will gives his condolences and touches his shoulder. What can he do? Nothing. EJ apologizes and asks to be excused.



    Neil arrives at SPD to give Will an alibi. They were at Salem's gay bar, "The Spot," together. Roman turns up and Rafe fills him in. Roman doesn't buy that his grandson would spend the night in a gay bar. Neil claims that's where he and Will go when they go out together. Roman asks Sami to confirm this but she thinks he should ask Will, who just happens to walk in and confirms that he was with Neil the night of the murder. Roman thinks people might get the wrong impression if they hear he's been hanging at a gay bar. "You think it's better if they thought I murdered somebody?" Roman denies that but Will says the impression people will get is correct. "Grandpa, I'm gay," he admits. Roman breathes a big sigh and Rafe and Carrie are proud of him. He just made Carrie's job a lot easier. Roman thinks this will take some getting used to. Sami reminds him Will's still the same. Everyone leaves to get the charges dropped and Sami hugs Will with pride. She thanks Neil for coming clean and Neil hugs Will. Roman worries for Will, who says it was EJ's idea to come clean. Carrie runs in. "The charges have been dropped!"



    Bo and Abe sit in the garden and Abe says he feels numb. A part of him is missing. Bo tries comforting him. He's glad his friend had the opportunity to say goodbye. Abe's grateful for that. He cries that he knew Lexi was hiding her pain. Bo thinks Abe gave Lexi everything she needed and wanted and hugs him. Inside, Hope calls Celeste and asks her to come as soon as she can. Lexi's ghost puts a hand on Theo's shoulder and grins. Without looking, he knows it's her. "Hi Mommy. Do you have to go?" She is sorry but she has to. She asks him to take care of daddy. She tells him she loves him. She'll always be there when he needs her. She hugs him as Abe and Bo walk in. Bo tells Abe that Theo sensed Lexi's passing. Abe's not surprised. Theo's always had an amazing connection with his mother. Theo tells his daddy his mommy told him to look after him now. They hug and Lexi blows him a kiss and watches as. EJ arrives. Bo is sorry for his loss. Theo hugs EJ and goes to play with Ciara. Abe tells EJ how it happened and EJ says he doesn't want to intrude. Hope and Bo leave the room. EJ admits Lexi was his best and only friend - the most important person in both their lives. "What do they do now?" Lexi tells them they'll find a way but first, they need to make peace with each other. Abe wants to honor Lexi's wishes for peace. "You're welcome here anytime," Abe says. "You are our family." EJ is touched and thanks Abe and the men embrace. Hope and Bo return. Hope called Cameron, Celeste and Brandon. Lexi's ghost heads upstairs and then fades away.



    Will finds Sonny at the pub and tells him the charges are dropped but he'll be outed soon. Sonny gives Will advice and hugs him.


    Sneak peek!

    Chad is gutted to learn his sister has died.

    John hears Will is gay and is fine with it.

    I totally don't cry when reading these updates or when watching the show, but I definitely started tearing up reading this one.

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Wednesday, June 20 2012 11:27 AM

    Ok I didn't expect to be the first comment but let me get my gripping out of the way first. That idiot Gabi goes traisping down into the basement with her stalkerbuddy -GOD why didn't he kidnapp her?? she is total waste of time and that goes for her brother too who cares how happy you are for Will coming out his face just had to be front and center on my screen NOT! Roman he is a fuddy duddy and he is going to be okay with it but he needed time to process. Sound familiar

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Wednesday, June 20 2012 11:32 AM

    My goodness the whole show for me Barbie-Q was a tearfest. Everything just kept making me reach for another kleenex. Theo I love Theo and loved it that him and Lexie talked, he knows that she loves him and daddy will no be the one taking care of him along with his family, EJ, Celeste, Cameron. He knows too that she asked him to watch over daddy. That killed me I was blowing my nose from that moment on.

    Even though I want Samantha to be the one to comfort EJ she was too busy trying to get his son and father to reconcile or to be okay with what was just revealed so I was very thankful for Theo running up and giving his uncle EJ that big hug he needed and then Lexie talking to both EJ and Abe who have been adversaries and now right now they both lost this phenomenal woman and they are both lost right now so seeing them hug -once again big tear drops.

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Wednesday, June 20 2012 11:38 AM

    her son. I didn't mean to type his son. But right now EJ has been and YES I loved it that Will told grandpa Roman and Sami both that EJ talked him into coming down and telling everyone -grandpa sure hated that -- but you know anything to do with the DiMera's he is just a shaking and ready to throw the book down, he almost wasn't willing to drop the charges cause Will works for EJ and you know he is covering for him.

    zuzu and bearigan I am bringing your comments from yesterday's update there

    Posted by bearigan at Wednesday, June 20 2012 11:16 AM

    Uooooooh, I might be afraid to watch later tonight. I love the way that Lexi had little to no makeup on and really looked like she was terribly ill. Oh my gosh, she out did herself on her final day. This is so hard, knowing that she is retiring and won't be coming back. I know James had a heart attack a couple of years back, so have to wonder if he will be following suit. I really can't see them giving him much even though both he and Renee proved themselves over and over the last couple of months.

    Glad Sami is coming around although on yesterday's show could have done without her accusing Carrie of being the one that broke her and Rafe up

    Oh DAYS... You have EMMY written ALL over you today..

    AND HECK YES to the Sami and her stop already -you did that to yourself OWN UP baby just like you son OWN UP to your history and accept IT!

    Emmy written all over the show today, THEN !!!!! just had to put the, I'm sorry, BUT this IDIOTIC Gabi crap on today.. This s/l could have waited.. The atmosphere would almost be unbearably sad and sweet, then here comes the Gabi crap.. Couldn't the writer's have waited ONE freakin' day for Gabi!!! PLU-ease.. Let Melanie and ESPECIALLY Lexi go with some dignity.. I'm SOOO sorry friends for bringing a negative comment.. But today was soooo special with Lexi.. why the heck Gabi was interjected.. UUUggghhh,, haha.. well, I still loved today and I love Days. . .

    Posted by allmylovingdays at Wednesday, June 20 2012 11:54 AM

    true zuzu that's why my first comment was WTF about that crap. I kept thinking if she had be on let her dumb stalker do something to her so she would disappear.

    I came back though for my last comment for now - I totally forgot again that Chad just lost Lexie too. See they hardly ever show him and so when I read that I was what, oh wow that's right not one person said we called Chad, where's Chad. oops.

    Posted by zuzu61 at Wednesday, June 20 2012 12:25 PM

    Abe, Theo, EJ ... oh my.. I have watched & cried and pushed rewind and cried and started it over from the beginning and cried.. They're killing me!!

    And Sami was an adult Mother and Friend to Will today..
    Just that little nod and smile that only he could read on her face was so very special..

    EJ could play such a positive role in Will's life..
    I would LOVE to see them as BFF's.. ha.. I hope so..

    Yeah, when I started to comment on how emotional it was to watch the pain of Abe, Theo and EJ, I fast fowarded thru one more time to see where I'd missed Chad. I was thinking that Chad must have had a scene that was remarkable, just like the other 3.. But NO, just Gabi and her frecky stalker.. I'm with you.. Where the heck is Chad?!? Hellooo.. Would someone like to call Chad.. and the actors said.. "Hey fans, we thought the same thing.. we're reading the script and saying.. uhh.. Hey writer's, don't you guys think that maybe it would make more sense to put Chad into today's s/l, rather than Gabi and kidnapper??" ha..
