Meanwhile at the lavish DiMera mansion Thomas gets a goodnight from Jen and Abigail as Chad takes him to bed. Mother and daughter talk turkey. Jen loves how happy Chad and Abigail are.

Eric sees what JJ has been reading on his ipad ... In his office Rafe argues with Sami, who has Hope's engagement ring stuck on her finger. Enter Hope, who innocently asks what is happening. She heard the commotion and wonders what Sami is hiding this time ... Eric realizes JJ feels shame and tries to make him feel better. He knows what it is like cos he killed his best friend and knows the hell he is going through. Theo, however, might make it. JJ wonders what if he does not. He is torn and tightlipped. Eric reasons talking is the only way. Besides the darkness will not stop his life from having meaning ... Sami babbles she came to say hello. Rafe anxiously agrees.

Then she uses the tissue Hope hands her and dries her eyes with a sly smile. Rafe soap stares ... After a call, Jen bears bad news for Chad and Abigail. She heard the DiMeras are now officially connected to the Theo case and asks Chad for a comment ... At Theo's shrine, woeful Kate reminds Gabi she offered to buy Gabi Chic. The girl needs time. Kate will meet her at the mansion tomorrow at 3, when she expects that answer. Ponytail Gabi will be there. Ponytail Kate is counting on it ... Abe asks Eli his own opinion on JJ's actions as they await the results of the internal investigation ...

Eric urges JJ to stop the self-isolation cos he is a good man. JJ gasps Theo has got to live. Eric notes Nicole forgave him for killing Daniel. JJ gasps Abe is never gonna forgive him ... Abe would appreciate Eli's off the record opinion. Was JJ right or wrong? Eli admits he believes JJ could have done differently and Theo's coma could have been avoided. Arriving Gabi overhears ...

Jen insists there is more to the story. Chad suspects she will want to make the DiMeras look evil and reminds her JJ was the one who pulled the trigger ... Sami gets a hug from Hope and manages to hand Rafe the ring now hidden in the tissue. She then smiles and excuses herself. Hope thinks she was hiding something. Rafe acts innocent ... Jen apologizes but the reporters will dig and find the truth. Off the record Chad admits if any DiMera including Andre was to blame for Theo's shooting he shall take care of that person personally. It sounds ominous. Abigail looks worried ... Back at the square Kate is hard on Sami for sending Ben back to Will. Sami reminds her she also saved her son ... At Doug's Place Rafe enjoys the wine.

He has to forgive himself and it can take ages. Jen is desperate to reach him. Eric thinks only Theo waking up will help - or Abe forgiving him ... Abe threatens to make the DiMeras pay if they did this to Theo. Sami tells him Andre is probably the one lying. Abe walks away and Kate admits to Sami that Andre is not the one who is lying ...

Doug brings the champagne with Julie and they toast to their happily ever after ... Sami tells Kate she knows she feels obliged to be the good DiMera wife and cover for Andre.
