He was driving on the opposite side of the road and swerved to get away from the car they were in, but an accident still happened. Now, following news that Adrienne has died, Will may decide to come clean with what he thinks happened and led to his mother-in-law's death on the Thursday, Jan. 23 episode of “Days of Our Lives.”

Will (Chandler Massey) was using his cell phone while driving and trying to reach out to his own mother, Sami, in honor of Mother’s Day, when he seemed to swerve into the lane that Adrienne (Judi Evans) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) were driving in on the NBC soap. Both cars swerved to avoid hitting one another and Adrienne and Sarah went off the road as a result. Adrienne was brought to the hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries and died—and now, convinced his actions led to the accident, Will may feel the need to confess.

“A guilt-ridden Will confides in JJ (Casey Moss),” spoilers reveal.

However, as he prepares to potentially confess to causing the accident and taking the blame for shattering his husband and family’s worlds, action is already going to be taken which unfortunately allows him to do so.

Xander (Paul Telfer) went and found Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) also at the scene and she was driving drunk. As a result, she is the one who actually caused the accident, but since he and Victor (John Aniston) worked quickly to get both her and her car away from the scene, no one else knows she was there. Desperate to keep her slip from getting out, Victor and Xander will decide to do the unthinkable—and let Will take the fall.

“Victor and Xander make a fateful decision,” spoilers state.

Of course, fans already know that the two men admitted to sending Will to jail for the accident in an effort to protect Maggie since they confessed their pot to Ciara (Victoria Konefal). However, now that she has also told Will that he is innocent, it is unclear how that will affect everything going forward from that point.

“Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC.
