Days of Our Lives Friday, November 10, 2017 Good show, tho slow at times. Sami is getting impatient waiting to hear results of the exhuming of Will’s grave. Rafe finally suggests leaving the park (which looks like mid-summer) & going down to the cop shop. As they sit there, Sami is looking thru some file, Rafe takes it from her, it’s confidential, she says it is her file, she knows all that is in it, he comments about the 3000 pages elsewhere. LOL. Finally, the call comes, the grave is empty. Sami has the expected fit, Susan is such a liar, but it means, Will is alive, he is alive, etc. JJ & Lani are at the cops shop, off duty, kissing, they are going out for her birthday today, but he gets a call about a break-in. Off they go, as no one else is available. They cautiously enter Club TBD, guns drawn, only to find a surprise birthday party for Lani going on…..Abe, Val, Theo, Claire…Lani is thrilled. Theo is rather occupied with his phone. Lots of birthday stuff, cake, candle blowing, Claire getting ticked at Theo who is trying to get the company he hired to cancel the followers. She doesn’t want to lose followers, but didn’t like the way Theo got them. He just cannot win, it seems, as she says he just doesn’t get her, but Tripp does. More arguing. Tripp is sitting, nursing a beer, Steve joins him, figures he is mooning over Claire, advises him to move, that he doesn’t want to be part of a triangle, those never turn out well. We don’t see, but Steve tells Tripp how he lost his eye, that his best friend, Bo, did it, etc. Tripp doesn’t think Theo would come after him, Steve doesn’t either, but worries what staying in that situation will do to Tripp internally, eventually. Andre is upset that Chad is accusing him of sabotaging the company, denies it, Abby believes him, Chad doesn’t Kate enters, adds her own snarky comments to the conversation, she also doesn’t believe Andre. Finally, Andre talks about his clean bill of health from the mental hospital, how happy he was to learn Stefano was his father, how proud of the company, and the faith Stefano had in him. He notes we are all family, that is what is important, and he would never betray his family. Chad believes him. Andre figures that someone knows every step they take, knows the company inside and out, and they have to find out who it is, working together. Cue Kate’s expression. JJ & Lani have gone home, or at least to someone’s room, have the obligatory roll in the hay for Lani’s birthday. JJ has also told Lani he loves her. While in afterglow, JJ gets a call, a break-in down at the docks. They get dressed and vamoose. Claire & Theo are still arguing, she says no more, we can talk at home. Theo will see her there later, has something to do first. She goes home, rants to Tripp that she doesn’t know where Theo is, he evidently had something better to do. Sami is ranting about Will being alive, Susan lying, and is going back to Memphis to find her, make her tell where Will is. Rafe is trying to stop the bulldozer, and finally gets her to shut up for 5 seconds, warning her she is still under restraining order there, & would end up in Tennessee jail. She doesn’t care, but Rafe again says, you are under a restraining order, can’t go near that house. But I can! Sonny calls Paul, he has been released from the hospital, apologizes for all he put Paul through, Paul was right, Sonny wants him down at the hospital pronto. Paul will be right there. (he is in the bar, looking straight at Will). When Paul gets to Sonny’s room, Sonny just goes on and on, about putting this all behind them, he is sorry for being such a pain to Paul, he wants to get married right away, brings out the ring, is so happy to wear it again. He is just bubbling over, Paul looking increasingly uncomfortable, and finally saying he cannot do this, cannot marry him. Why not? Paul says Will is alive, I saw him, did not speak to him, but I saw him. Sonny gets mad, very angry, asks where, Paul says it is a bar called Suspicions (??). Paul will take him there. Nope…. Sonny gives the ring back to Paul, is going there himself, alone. At that bar, the barkeep is straightening bar stools, cleaning up, place is closed, and again, doesn’t even look up when the door opens, Sonny comes in. He walks over, saying Will’s name. Will turns around…and the two do the soapy stare thing. Theo is in the darkened bldg.., wearing a hoodie, holding a scanning device of some kind (it looks like a gun. He is using it on some device attached to the wall. Above him, a red light is flashing, which he does not notice. As he turns to leave, JJ’s voice is heard, telling him to freeze. Theo takes off running, JJ & Lani in hot pursuit. Kate is calling Theo to tell him she changed her mind, not to go to the place tonight, too dangerous. And the call is too late. JJ & Lani chase Theo into the square, don’t see him, separate, and go in different directions. JJ spots Theo, orders him to stop, put down his weapon, drop it. Theo doesn’t, just stands there, the techie device in his hand (yes, it looks like a gun). JJ orders him to drop it, or he will shoot. Instead, Theo turns, the item still in his hand, JJ fires, Theo drops to the ground.
