As the town of Salem gathers to mourn the loss of Abigail, Tony and Anna arrive to join the extended DiMera family in celebrating her life. Sonny and Will are on hand to help Chad as he tries to figure out how he’ll go on. And when Kayla attempts to deliver Abby’s eulogy, she finds it almost impossible to summon up the words.

When Leo and Nancy have a heated exchange, he suddenly comes to a realization about his partner-in-illicit-activities, Clyde!
