It's Grandpa Shawn's funeral today on Days of our Lives
. Marlena (Deidre Hall
) runs into Roman (Josh Taylor
) who is lingering in the church, staring at the big portrait of his Pop.
Lexie has temporarily released Bo (Peter Reckell
) from the hospital today so that he can attend the funeral. Hope (Kristian Alfonso
) and Bo's progeny go to the hospital to collect him. Hope asks Lexie point-blank if Bo is going to die.
Steve (Stephen Nichols
), Kayla (Mary Beth Evans
) and Stephanie (Shelley Hennig
) go to the pub to take Caroline (Peggy McCay
) to the church. Kimberly Brady shows up out of the woodwork and says kind words to Caroline.
Everyone showers Kimberly with hugs and kisses to welcome her and catches her (and Days of our Lives
viewers who are just tuning in) up with all the goings-on in Salem. It's time for everyone to drive to the church, but they can't all fit in one car. Just in the nick of time, Victor (John Aniston) appears and offers to take Caroline. Kimberly isn't happy to see him there and bitches him out, but Caroline convinces her to just go to church. Once everyone has gone, Caroline refuses the offer of a ride because she doesn't think it would be appropriate to go to her husband's funeral with her ex-lover. She plans on walking to the church, with Shawn's spirit at her side.
Steve and Kayla finally get to church, and Steve conveniently takes a little walk on the church grounds. It's convenient because he happens to catch a glimpse of Ava stalking him. She is the worst stalker ever! He asks Abe (James Reynolds
) in a panic if he can talk to him about a matter later on.
John (Drake Hogestyn
) is also at St. Luke's and catches Marlena and Roman talking softly together. He gets jealous because he thinks that there is something going on between Marlena and Roman, but they assure him that they are just friends and that before he lost his memory, all three were very close.
Chloe and Philip (Jay Kenneth Johnson
) run into Sami (Alison Sweeney
) and EJ (James Scott
) before the funeral. Things are very tense: Sami is pissy at Chloe for keeping secrets about Brady, and Philip is pissy at Sami for forgetting all about his brother now that she has EJ in her life.
The funeral finally begins. Roman goes up to the front to tell everyone that he's going to try to his Pop justice, but he's going to keep it short and sweet so that they can all get back to the pub and drink pints, just like he would have wanted. Then Kimberly speaks, followed by Kayla. Then, Bo tearfully gives his eulogy. He breaks down at the end and can't finish. The funeral ends with a Celtic Woman
-style musical montage.
