Steve and Kayla going in a hurry, it is Joey. It has to be. Either he's taking a turn for the worst or he is waking up. But if he's waking up, Joey might not remember anything or anyone. He could wake up with amnesia. If he does, it is believable given that gazebo explosion and him flying in mid air and hitting his head hard. Plus Joey's father Steve had amnesia at one point in his life for years. So if Joey has it too and doesn't remember his wife Alanis or his family, it isn't like it's permanent.
Love that Bo is back and in his family's lives. Bo reuniting with his daughters Chelsea and Ciara was the best part. Especially Bo seeing his grandson Isaac who is named after Chelsea's late brother Zack and named after Bo as well. Bo I can see him as a more hands on grandfather and love that he reunited with his brother Max too.
Bo meeting Trix was great too. At least he doesn't hold her being an Alamain against her just as long as she treats Ciara right, then that's all he cares about. Bo has a lot he missed out on in Ciara's life but he's back now and he can make up for it.
Bo can also reconnect with his son Shawn, his daughter in law Belle and his granddaughter Claire. Bo probably still doesn't know that his granddaughter Claire is married to Jennings' son Chase.
But Bo he's going to have to come by the Kiriakis Mansion soon and see that niece of his Danielle but also see his Kiriakis family members like Justin, Adrienne, Brady the real Brady, Melanie, Maggie and of course his brother Philip
Such a nice reunion between Bo and his family. It makes a lot of sense but I'm still not certain that all of Megan's brainwashing has been undone. And what about Aiden? What are his thoughts on all of this and where does Bo's return leave him and Hope?

SALEM UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
A few minutes ago…
Stephanie and Alanis sat by Joey’s bedside. Alanis was still in a sling, but was now able to get out of bed. STEPHANIE: I wonder where my parents went a while ago. ALANIS: Me too. Stephanie put a hand on Alanis’ shoulder. STEPHANIE: Hey, it’s gonna be okay. ALANIS: I know. I’m trying to stay strong, but…it’s been two weeks already. STEPHANIE: It has, but these things take time. Remember when my Dad was in a coma a few years ago after fighting that creepy lookalike of my Uncle Bo in the DiMera Tunnels? Alanis nodded. ALANIS: I do. I know sometimes things like this can take a long time. I get that. STEPHANIE: It’s okay if you’re not okay. You know that, right? ALANIS: Yep. She sighed. STEHANIE: Have you been able to sleep much? ALANIS: Every now and then. It’s gotten better since I got moved into this room. I think maybe I need to talk to Brandon about different ways to calm myself down since I can’t really do yoga in the hospital. STEPHANIE: That’s a good idea. ALANIS: Thanks for being here, Steph. STEPHANIE: Of course. Suddenly, the machines hooked up to Joey started beeping loudly. ALANIS: What’s that? STEPHANIE: I have no idea. I’ll go find a doctor! Stephanie quickly got up and left. A moment later, she came back with Carly and a few nurses, who immediately began looking over Joey. ALANIS: Dr. Manning, what’s going on? CARLY: From what I can tell, it looks like Joey might be waking up.
Steve, Kayla and Stephanie stood in the hallway outside of Joey’s room. Alanis, in a wheelchair, was also there. KAYLA: So what exactly happened? ALANIS: I don’t know. Steph and I were talking one minute, then the machines just started making a lot of noise. Kayla sighed and nodded. KAYLA: All right. I’m sure Carly will give us an update when she’s done. A moment later, Carly walked out of the room. STEVE: What’s the story? CARLY: He’s awake.
BRADY PUB Shawn-D clapped Bo on the shoulder. SHAWN-D: I gotta be heading out soon, I’ve got the evening shift tonight. But we’re definitely gonna have to catch up more later. BO: Absolutely, man. Your Mom tells me you’re doing good on the force. I’m proud of you, bud. SHAWN-D: Thanks, Dad. Shawn-D and Bo hugged. BO: Belle. BELLE: So good to see you again! BO: You too. BELLE: We’ll be in touch soon. We need to have you over for dinner sometime. BO: I’d love that! Belle and Shawn-D said their goodbyes, then left. All the others who didn’t live at the Pub had already gone home, except for Hope and Aiden. CHELSEA: So, where are you staying? BO: Well, the last day or two, since I got here, I’ve been staying at the Salem Inn. CHELSEA: The Salem Inn?! AIDEN: Which is totally unnecessary. Both Hope and I have told you you could stay with us. BO: Yeah, I know, but I don’t wanna mess things up for you guys more than I already have. At least not on my first week back in town. HOPE: Ugh, Brady you are so stubborn! BO: Look who’s talkin’! CHELSEA: Well, you’re not staying at the Salem Inn anymore, Dad. You’re staying here. BO: Chels- MAX: Bo, come on. You and I both know that arguing with Chelsea never gets us anywhere. Bo sighed. BO: That is true. All right, thank you. CHELSEA: You’re welcome. I’ll go get your room ready. HOPE: We should probably be going. We’ll…we’ve got a lot to talk about. BO; That we do. AIDEN: Which I’m certain we will in the days to come. It is good to see you, Bo, no matter how strange the circumstances. BO: You too, Jennings. Fancy Face. HOPE: Brady. Hope and Bo hugged. HOPE: Thanks for putting this all together, Chels. You too, Max. Especially on such short notice. MAX: No problem. When you told us we needed to have an emergency family meeting, we had no idea what to expect, but this was a great surprise! After a final round of hugs, Aiden and Hope left.
SALEM PIER Silver waved to her mom as her car drove away. She, her girlfriend Neveah, and Sydney were wearing dresses for tonight’s Last Blast Dance. SYDNEY: This is gonna be awesome! SILVER: I know! I’m so excited! NEVEAH: Me too! I’ve been waiting for this since the announcement that it was coming! Together, the girls followed a group of their fellow students to a boat at the end of one of the docks.
But Bo staying at the Brady Pub makes sense...or he could have stayed at the Kiriakis Mansion...there's plenty of room there too but being at the Pub he gets to be close to his brother Max, his daughter Chelsea and his grandson Isaac is there too
Joey is waking up but in what kind of condition will he be in

Friday - 6/9
BOAT CLICK HERE to listen to the music that’s playing. The boat left Salem Pier and was now sailing around the harbor. The students inside of it were dancing and talking. SYDNEY: So I guess the theme of this year’s dance is Yacht Rock. SILVER: What is that? NEVAEH: A type of rock music that was popular in the ‘70s and ‘80s. It’s kind of a mix of smooth jazz, R&B, disco and soul. A lot of the songs are really catchy. Silver and Sydney looked at Neveah. NEVEAH: What? My Dad’s a radio D.J., and it’s his favorite type of music. SILVER: Oh, yeah. That’s so cool! SYDNEY: Totally! SILVER: Let’s go dance! NEVEAH: Sounds good to me. Silver took Neveah by the hand and the two went to the dance floor. Sydney smiled as she watched them.
SALEM UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL KAYLA: Oh thank god! Kayla and Steve hugged, as did Alanis and Stephanie. CARLY: It’s good news. He doesn’t seem to have suffered any permanent damage. A couple of vertebrae have been fractured from when he fell, but the swelling has gone down, and his head injury is healing nicely. ALANIS: Can we see him? CARLY: Yes, you can. He’s probably gonna be a bit groggy for a little bit, but I’m sure he’d love to see you. However, only one at a time, for the moment. I’ll leave you to it. If you have any questions, have Maxine or one of the other nurses page me. STEVE: Thanks, doc. Carly smiled, nodded and walked away. STEPHANIE: What a relief! STEVE: I’ll say. KAYLA: This is such good news! Joey’ll still have a fight ahead of him, though. STEVE: Yeah, but he’s a fighter, like all of us. KAYLA: Very true. STEVE: Anyway, get in there, Nightingale. ALANIS: What? No, you guys are his parents, you should go- STEVE: And you’re his wife. His new wife. KAYLA: I’m about to start work, anyway. I’ll have plenty of time to see him during my breaks. STEVE: And I don’t mind waiting a couple minutes. Go on in there. STEPHANIE: Seriously, if you don’t, I will. ALANIS: Okay, okay. Gently, Alanis stood up and walked into Joey’s room. He was sitting up in his bed. JOEY: Hey. ALANIS: Hey! You’re awake! JOEY: Yep! I’m so glad to see you! ALANIS: I’m glad to see you, too! You have no idea! JOEY: Yeah, I guess I was out for a little while. Alanis nodded. JOEY: So, do I get a hug? Alanis gently put her good arm around Joey. He put both arms around her, and she winced slightly. JOEY: Hey, you okay? ALANIS: I’ll be fine. It’s just a couple broken ribs. And an arm. JOEY: Ouch. So, you were involved in the accident, too, huh? ALANIS: Yeah. It’ll be okay, though. We’re here, you’re awake, the doctors are gonna take good care of you. JOEY: Yeah. ALANIS: And despite what happened at the reception, the wedding itself was beautiful. JOEY: That’s good. What wedding?
Oh no. I was afraid that Joey would have some memory loss. I hope Alanis isn't too crushed by that revelation. It's so sweet how Joey's family was pushing her to be the first one to see him. Did Joey not notice Alanis's arm in a sling? It took her flinching before he realized that she was hurt? I wonder what accident he's referring to if he doesn't remember the wedding.
