shoplifting today. His mom reminds him that he's not a baby and he's
responsible for what he's done. She orders him to go and make amends

like he was into it. She notices Sami and EJ have returned. They tell
her the big news and skip away. "It's too bad I couldn't have used you

the bushes and asks JJ how good his stash is. She gets flirty.

the other day. She knows he thinks her son is a dink, but she needs to
put him first. Jenn wants them to take a break. "Breaking up with me is

In The Middle.

Sonny give it a miss but the Kiriakis insists there is nothing he would
rather do. Meanwhile, Abby drops by Gabi's to see her and the baby.
They awkwardly discuss Abby's boy problem. Abs complains that Cam
doesn't seem willing to wait indefinitely. Gabi suggests she come to
the picnic. She needs a distraction from thinking about Nick. "My
marriage is over," she explains. Sometimes she really misses him...
she's confused about her feelings. Will and Sonny pop in to pick them
up for the picnic.
JJ lounges around his room with his shirt off and thinks of his
problems with his mom. Downstairs, Jenn plays with a cooler and recalls
her happy days with Daniel and Parker. Adrienne shows up. Jenn informs
her that she's not going to the picnic. Adrienne changes her mind.

getting off has caused rumors of a hospital cover-up. She leaves to
take care of that and orders her son to behave. Adrienne tells JJ

her how mature her two suitors were. That's not making choosing any
easier. Down by the water, Brent and Will towel off. Brent assures him

living such a settled life. Will's defensive. Sonny comes by and his
mom follows. She apologizes if she was insensitive about his mom.
