days of our lives
On New Year’s Eve, Lani, Eli, Adrienne, Justin, Eric, Sarah, Chloe, Brady, Jennifer, Henry, JJ, and Haley attend a benefit for the Horton Center at Doug’s Place.
As the clock strikes
12, Eve makes a surprise appearance at the benefit. She excoriates everyone at the party, especially Brady and Jennifer. She promises to take a wrecking ball to their lives. The guests are shocked when she reveals her special guest: Jack Deveraux.
FEEL LIKE MAKING LOVE
Eli and Lani leave the party and head home, where they make love for the first time as a couple.
Jennifer is stunned to
see her presumed-dead husband, but her joy quickly turns to dismay when she realizes that Jack doesn’t remember anything or anyone from his past, and has a dim view of his previous life. Eve and Jack return to the Salem Inn together; Jennifer is devastated.
Chad and Will catch
up. Will sympathizes with Chad over losing Abigail, and Chad shares his guilt over the situation with both Abigail and Sonny. Will is determined to find a way to get rid of Leo so he and Sonny can be together.
Abigail and it’s awkward between them. Chad promises that Gabi will pay for what she did, but Abigail explains to him that it’s not enough.
Determined to get Abigail back, Chad gets advice from Julie about how to win Abby’s heart again.
JJ informs Abigail that their father is alive but doesn’t remember any of them .... Jennifer bangs on Eve’s door. Eve tells her Jack isn’t there and slams
the door in Jen’s face.
Jack runs into Hope, who tries to jog his memory, but it doesn’t work. After, Jennifer opens up to Hope, who promises they’ll find a way to get through to Jack.
Abigail visits Jack and tries to trigger his memory by reminding him how he died saving her. Eve interrupts their chat and insists that Abigail must go.
Justin tells Sonny that Jack is alive, but has amnesia. They wonder if Dr. Rolf was involved with Jack’s resurrection, as he was with Will. Later, a hungover Leo admits to Sonny that he had major issues with his mom. Sonny calls Will and relays the conversation, hoping they may have found
Leo’s Achilles’ heel.
IN AND OUT
Eve leaves to run an errand. She encounters JJ, who blasts Eve for her destructiveness. While Eve is out, Jennifer returns to the Salem Inn and tries to spark Jack’s memory by showing him family photos, but it doesn’t work. Jennifer learns that Jack was at the facility in Nashville where Dr. Rolf worked. They talk about Eve. Jennifer explains to Jack that his past relationship with Eve was based solely on money. Jennifer makes it clear to Jack that she still loves him and wants him back. They share a kiss. Later, Jennifer vows that she won’t give up on helping Jack recover his memories.
Eve meets with her secret accomplice: Xander. They discuss the deal they cut: Xander gives Jack over to Eve in exchange for a flash drive, which Eve hands over.
When Eve comes home, Jack asks why she lied about his past.
Kayla confronts JJ about helping Haley cover up her suicide attempt. Haley gets upset, thinking JJ ratted her out, but Kayla informs them a nurse told her. Haley comforts JJ about Jack, and later, JJ tells Kayla his father is back. A stunned Kayla calls Steve with the news. JJ, meanwhile, overhears Haley on the phone, saying she won’t tell Kayla anything.
How is Will feeling about Leo’s interference in his and Sonny’s (Freddie Smith, r.) life? Chandler Massey says:“Obviously, Will is not a fan that the man is alive and not a fan of what he’s doing to Will and Sonny, basically keeping them from having their happily ever after.”
