At Sami's apartment, Will is confused as everyone asks how he is and who kept him this whole time. They're all happy he is home and explain why the cameras are there. Will is very confused. He tells everyone that he wasn't kidnapped. The reason he didn't go back to school is because he ran away. He didn't want to be the joke of Salem High - again! He has been in Chicago this whole time, watching baseball the entire time away! He tells them that he won't do it again and although they're upset with him, they're happy he is safe.

They discuss how Alex North could have been a part of this but Bo thinks it was Tony DiMera.
John goes in to see Roman and Carrie. They tell him the bad news - she is missing! He's in shock. He tells them that Marlena called him last night before he went to bed, seemingly upbeat.

Bo arrives at Sami's apartment. Sami tells him that Will ran away, and Bo tells her that the anonymous call that was made on the day that Will went missing came from Patrick's phone.
