Stefano barks that it feels like she’s taking Sami’s side. He starts to cry and considers Will could have shot EJ. Kate becomes unhinged. If he even thinks of casting suspicion at Will, they’re at war! Stefano thinks she’s overreacting and they agree to rewind the last five minutes.

At the hospital, Rafe leaves Will alone with Sami, who admits she shot EJ and is sorry Will saw it.

Sami explains how humiliating it is and lets him know about Kate’s warning that EJ was going to disappear with Johnny and Sydney and she couldn’t allow that to happen. Will understands she had to stop EJ but she could have told Rafe or Grandpa Roman. Sami couldn’t and walks Will through what happened that night while they cry together.

Vivian doesn’t have time for his hissy fit and gives him two remote controls for the sarcophagus. He refuses her once again and she tempts him with a trip to the spa but he roars that she can’t buy him off with a high colonic and storms out.
