    At home, JJ is looking at the newspaper as Abigail enters the room. He suggests they take their mother to the fireworks. She tells him he's being obvious - he knows she has a date with a guy that is not Daniel. JJ grumbles about Liam. Abigail asks him to run her application over to the hospital - she has to get it in to go from full-time to part-time.


    At the hospital, Jennifer bickers with Anne. They trade barbs and argue about Abigail needing to switch from full-time to part-time. Jennifer says she has to go. Anne wishes she'd never come back. Later, JJ arrives with Abigail's application. He tells Anne she has it in for his family and that she'll clearly do anything to hurt his mom. She laughs at this coming from the juvenile delinquent son who came back and made so much trouble.

    At the Horton house, Abigail and Jennifer meet Liam at the door. Introductions are made and Abigail teases about curfew as Jenn and Liam leave for their date. Abby's friend arrives to go out, but Abby gets a text from Cameron.

    At Gabi's apartment, Gabi tells Sonny that Sami wants her to burn the coat she wore when she killed Nick. She opens the closet and screams - Will's inside. Will is stunned - Gabi murdered somebody! Sonny says it was self-defense and they fill in the details. Will is determined to call Roman, but then learns Sami and Kate are involved. Gabi texts Sami and Kate. Will marvels that his daughter is being raised by the Sopranos.

    At the river, Sami and EJ check for any evidence left behind. Sami sees leaves surface on the water and screams. EJ reassures her as she gets a text from Gabi that Will knows.

    At Gabi's apartment, Will is upset at Sonny having known about the murder. Will goes to check Ari in the bedroom. Kate arrives, followed by Sami and EJ. Sonny goes to get Will and returns to tell them he is gone and he's taken Ari with him. The women start yammering loudly. Sonny reminds them he couldn't have gone far - he'll go find him. EJ insists the women let Sonny go alone. The women bicker. Kate mocks EJ, asking him since he's the go-to guy, how do they get away with murder? EJ tells them to gather up everything they wore that night - his man will be around in the morning, and then he'll have a team do a sweep. Kate sneers about EJ being his father's son.

    In the square, Will asks Ari, "Where do we go?" He walks to the park and talks to the baby on a park bench. His phone rings, but he ignores Sonny's call. As he's telling the baby no one else matters to him, Sonny appears.

    At the Kiriakis mansion, Daniel arrives and says Brady is high. Brady smashes the videographer's camera on the floor. Brady rants. Nicole sends the camera guy away. Daniel confronts Brady about using again. They all want to help him. Brady says he only talked to a dealer to protect JJ. Daniel says that's a cover-up. Brady argues with Eric as Nicole and Daniel try to intervene. Brady gets defensive and physical and drops his vial of cocaine. Brady asks if they're satisfied and rants about the smug looks on their faces. He insists he deserves this after all he's been through. They plead with him not to go down this road again. Brady asks Nicole if she'll turn him in. She says she'll make the call because she cares. Brady starts getting nasty with all of them. Daniel follows him out of the room. Nicole reassures Eric about Brady's hurtful outburst. They hug. Meanwhile, Daniel and Brady fistfight by the door.

    In the Brady Pub, Liam and Jennifer are talking when JJ appears. He pulls Jennifer aside and tells her that he thinks Anne is going to make sure Abigail doesn't get the job. Jennifer tells Liam that she has to take care of something right away and leaves him with JJ, who tells him how in love with Daniel Jonas his mother was.

    At the hospital, Jennifer gets in Anne's face about her scheme. She hisses at her not to deny it. "I know!"

    Good show today, great ending. Can't believe that Brady and Dan are going to duke it out. Hope Dan knocks some sense into Brady before brady destroys himself. Jmo.

    Gotta run up town back soon.

    Poor Will now he knows his whole family is crazy. Lol referred to them as the Sopranos. Lololol. Love it.

    OMGoodness I laughed so hard at that Sopranos comment. I was also laughing because I watch Elementary,w hich is a modern Sherlock Holmes show, and EJ today sounded just like the guy who plays Sherlock on there.

    Today's scenes with Brady really affected me. I had a close friend who died of using crack cocaine in 2006 and in today's scenes Brady really reminded me of him. My friend was unusually honest for an addict and wouldn't have lied if confronted about using like Brady did but some of the other things Brady said reminded me of the way he would justify things. It also got me thinking about some things I did that I'm not too proud of when I was with my friend. That's part of why I like the JJ redemption storyline so much, his behavior is similar to what mine was in those days. Anyway the scenes with Brady also affected me because I was remembering how my friends tried to get me to stop being friends with my addict friend, and how I risked my own life alot in order to be with him, and wouldn't listen to anyone.

    Anyway, I spoke to my friend the day he passed and he had been drinking for a week straight but he was actually sober. He told me he'd gone to the county department of mental health and was going to start seeing a therapist the next week. He also told me he got some money he wasn't expecting and I had a feeling he was going to use it to buy drugs but I didn't say anything because there was no point. That night, I couldn't get ahold of him and I panicked, calling his number over and over because I couldn't get him and I knew something was wrong. Nobody ever picked up. Then around 11 PM a neighbor called me and told me the police wanted to talk to me about him, and I found out he was gone. He had decided to use one last time before starting to get the help he needed and it was fatal.

    Wish I'd had someone like Daniel in my life then. Glad I can be that person to some others now.

    Just had to share that.

    OMG CoachJack I know you mentioned this friend before, but didn't know all the facts. My heart goes out to you. No wonder you are so against drugs the same way I am after my step son OD. I hate when TPTB uses drugs or alcohol in their story lines. I've known quite a few alcoholic in my life time and it isn't pretty.

    Posted by CoachJack at Monday, December 30 2013 02:27 PM

    Thanks LGM. I'm sorry about your stepson too. Drugs suck. Period.

    I hate when TPTB show drug use too, especially when they glamorize it. One of the many reasons I hate this Theresa storyline is look at her, she has her face all made up and pretty and her life isn't significantly affected other than an occasional negative word from Maggie. I've been worried that drug dealer is going to think JJ is a narc and physically assault him, and I would hate to see that but at least it would show the consequences of getting involved with drug dealers. The Brady scenes today were pretty powerful. They did a good job of showing how drug use really messes you up. Look at all the nasty things Brady said, things that can't be unsaid or forgotten about when he sobers up and realizes how he hurt the people he claims to care about. On another board someone was saying someone who does as much nose candy as Brady should be getting random nosebleeds. I wish they would have shown that so the kids watching see drug use is not glamorous at all. I wish also they would leave JJ alone because he could be a good role model. His guilt over what he did to Daniel while under the influence shows what happens after you get off drugs and try to turn your life around, you're stuck with a lot of guilt and anger at yourself.

    Now we have 6 that know about Nick's drowning, wonder how many more will know before the week is out. Lol. Had to watch the show over again just to see Sami screaming again. Loved Will when he was slapping his face saying wake up, and his word for his family "Sopranos " love it. and could someone go to wardrobe and get EJ a larger jacket the one he's wearing looks like they had to squeeze him in to it, it was to tight.

    Random question: anyone know where Jack is supposed to be buried? His bio on the site doesn't say. I'm planning a scene in my story where JJ leaves in a hurry and Abby follows him thinking he's going to do drugs, only to find he is visiting Jack's grave, but my mom said Jack was buried somewhere they had to fly to so I wanted to make sure.

    @LGM
    EJ looked strange not wearing a suit and tie. I guess even he doesn't go hiking in his SUnday best lol
