But not the one Marlena was expecting. Last week, on New Years Eve, a conflicted and angry Will told Marlena that he witnessed EJ and Sami having sex.
This week, Marlena learns the details surrounding Sami’s indiscretion with EJ. She tries to help Will see that it wasn’t lust that drove EJ and Sami into each other’s arms but the unbearable pain of learning their son was dead. Marlena doubts there was any lust involved, or that it happened more than once.
But Will cannot forgive his mother. He feels like he has to tell Rafe – he deserves to know, but know that telling Rafe would spell the end of the family life he wants for his younger siblings, Johnny, Ally and Sydney. A family life he never had as a child because Sami was too busy lying about who his father was and flitting from man to man.
Will however doubts he can ever forgive his mother, but tries to talk to her anyway, only for Sami to be unaware of the importance of the conversation as she rushes to get back to work (her first day at Countess Wilhelmina).
Tomorrow, Sonny Kiriakis tells Will that he can tell him anything while they discuss turning Justin and Adrienne’s bar – The Cheatin Heart – into a gay friendly coffee shop. Sonny also suggests that perhaps Will should leave Salem for a while to “find himself”.
During the week on January 9, EJ easily outmaneuvers the teen and tells Will that he will out his as gay! Later in the week, Will meets a friend of Sonny’s, named Mateo (Jai Rodriguez from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy guest-stars), who makes him sweat.
