Days of Our Lives spoilers for Thursday, January 23, tease that Will Horton (Chandler Massey) will almost tell the truth to Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) – or at least what he believes to be the truth. Will doesn’t realize that drunk Maggie Kiriakis (Suzanne Rogers) caused the accident before she drove her car into a nearby ditch. He was distracted by his phone, so he assumed it was the fault of the nightmare that is still unfolding.
Before Will can tell Sonny Kiriakis what he thinks happened, Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth) will give some devastating updates. He will tell Sonny that Adrienne is dead, so that will bring an emotional embrace to this father and son.
It’s Mother’s Day, so Sonny Kiriakis was just thinking about how grateful he has been to have Adrienne in his life. Finding out that Adrienne is gone forever will be a lot for Sonny to take in.
As for Will, he’ll also have to bow his head about Adrienne’s death and the false assumption that he caused it. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Will will find a confidant on Thursday.
He will open up to JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) so he can admit that he drove Adrienne off the road and led to her death. That’s the way it really is now, but Will is going to believe that and fight a terrible guilt.
JJ knows what it’s like to make a terrible mistake that changes everything. After JJ accidentally shot Theo Carver (Kyler Petters), it looked like Theo wouldn’t make it. JJ was so desperate that he decided to commit suicide, but Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) talked him out of it.
Maybe JJ can pass on some wisdom to Will about dealing with guilt. He thinks maybe Will should deal with what he did. JJ’s situation was a little different, but he can understand how Will feels now.
DOOL spoilers say he’ll do his best to lead Will in the right direction, which Will’s confession to Sonny Kiriakis and Justin will set up by the end of the week.
In the meantime, Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) will have more disturbing news. After Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) arrives at the hospital with Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) and her baby, Sarah’s little girl will suddenly die. As soon as Xander fills in Victor, they reach an agreement about what should happen now.
Victor will order Xander to exchange Sarah’s child for Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk). Kristen and Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) will have a happy, healthy baby girl by then – waiting for Xander to make the exchange!
Days spoilers say Kristen will lose it when Haley Chen (Thia Megia) pushes herself over her child. She will demand answers and follow Haley down a flight of stairs, where Haley will admit the baby is dead.
The shock of all this will stagger Kristen, so she will explode and let Haley tumble down those stairs to her own death.
