Mother’s Day One Year Ago
At the Kiriakis mansion, Sarah’s in labor and Maggie’s excited. On the sofa, Adrienne disconnects from Justin, hears Sarah and learns she’s in labor. Sarah and Maggie open the door as Summer Townsend, (played by Marie Wilson), appears on the doorstep. Adrienne dresses and will drive Sarah to the hospital. Once alone, Summer tells Maggie she waited until Victor left to come. Maggie’s been searching for her. Summer’s been in Vegas and didn’t want to talk to her mother. She announces she’s a drunk and Maggie’s aghast as Summer reveals she tried to drink herself to death in Vegas. It didn’t work but she finally got her wish. “I’m dying.” Summer has advanced cirrhosis. Maggie wonders about a liver transplant. Summer scoffs; an alcoholic can’t get one. She wants Maggie to have a final cocktail with her and downs a drink. Maggie protests but Summer tells her to let Brady know he shouldn’t have pulled her from the ocean, then leaves as Maggie screams her name. Maggie leaves a message for Brady – she needs him – then picks up the drink Summer poured her.
In the square, Will and Sonny postpone the discussion about having another child and Sonny reminds Will to call Sami as Will heads off. Sonny meets with Gabi, who reveals she’s the new CEO of DiMera Enterprises. Sonny wants to celebrate. She asks about Will. Sonny shares he freaked out a little when he suggested having another child.
At the DiMera mansion, Abigail thanks Chad for her Mother’s Day breakfast in bed. She’s going to help at the Spectator, then check on her mom at the hospital. Chad’s supportive about Jennifer still being in a coma and kisses her. After, Chad is joined by Tony – he got a call from Mr. Shin that he’s been ousted from DiMera Enterprises. Chad’s confused and wonders who was behind it. He gets on the phone and yells at Mr. Shin as Anna enters. Tony updates her that Gabi got his job. Chad’s irate that all Gabi’s ever done is run a clothing company and sleep with his brother. He disconnects. Tony’s stunned to learn Anna helped Gabi – it was a non-starter until she got involved. Anna protests he never wanted the job. Tony argues he got it, and discovered he was good at it. Anna did it for them – it was the only way to ensure they have a future together. Miffed, Tony’s not sure they have. Anna snarls that he’s his father’s son and storms out. Chad tells Tony he can handle Gabi – he should go after Anna. Tony recalls he vowed never to leave her again. Anna reappears – she’s packed. She counsels Chad to let Gabi work and enjoy his family. Tony tells her she’s stuck with him. Anna laughs – she had Harold pack his suitcase too. They’ll need to rush to make their flight. Tony tells Chad to call if he needs. They embrace.
At Titan, Victor tells Xander that Sarah’s in labor. Xander laments she told him she wants nothing to do with him. Victor grumps that he’s the child’s father. Xander sighs; “Actually, I’m not.” Victor vows not to say a word to Eric Brady but advises Xander to stay away if that’s what Sarah asked – it’s better not to get attached. Xander’s already attached to the baby…and the mother.
At the Spectator, Will’s surprised to see Abigail and is sorry there’s no change with her mom. Abigail gets emotional; she misses her. Abigail learns Sonny wants another child and promises Will wouldn’t regret it. Later, Abigail wishes them luck before leaving. Will begins a text to Sonny. “I’ve been thinking about what you said…”
In Adrienne’s car, she reassures Sarah by talking about Sonny’s birth. Sarah relays she fought with Xander and told him not to come. Adrienne can’t stand the guy but thinks she should reconsider. Suddenly, there’s a loud noise. Adrienne pulls over. They have no cell service, so Adrienne fixes the flat tire herself. After, they prepare to pull away with Sarah saying the contractions are coming faster.
Gabi appears at the DiMera mansion and presumes Chad’s heard the good news.
At home, Sonny receives a positive text from Will and looks at Adrienne’s photo. “Prepare yourself, Mom, your family’s about to get bigger.”
In his car, Will reads his cellphone while driving, then looks up and sees headlights.
In Adrienne’s car, Sarah’s on the phone with Xander asking him to come to the baby’s delivery when a car crosses into their lane. Adrienne yells and tires squeal.
