They have managed to finally wind up together for real and get their married lives together off to an amazing start, but things will come to a crashing halt as Gabi gets horrific, life-changing news about Stefan on the Friday, Oct. 4 episode of “Days of Our Lives.”

Stefan (Brandon Barash) took a bullet to the neck after he jumped in front of Vivian (Robin Strasser) when Lani (Sal Stowers) shot at her and has since been left bleeding out on the ground on the NBC soap. His mother is horrified to be seeing her son in that condition, and Lani, who was trying to apprehend Vivian for her crimes is also shaken by what she’s now done. However, neither of their reactions will likely compare to Gabi’s (Camilla Banus), because his wife was feeling happy after a romantic night together—and won’t be prepared to learn what has happened to the man she loves.

“Gabi receives horrific news,” spoilers reveal.

Naturally, learning her husband has been shot—and likely isn’t surviving considering where he took a bullet and how quickly he has been bleeding out—is going to devastate her, since she was finally getting everything she wanted by being with him. However, she may also be forced to get past her grief quickly, as someone else will be suffering from tragedy and she can help.

“Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) passes out after she and Doug (Bill Hayes) reminisce about their life together,” spoilers state.

Julie’s condition has been worsening since her two heart attacks, and after Kate (Lauren Koslow) woke up from her coma, it became clear she wasn’t going to get the heart she needs. As a result, she and her family have been preparing for her to die, and her passing out could be the beginning of the end.

While she and Julie have never had a good relationship, and Gabi has suffered a lot of the blame for Julie’s first heart attack being worse than it was initially because she didn’t believe she was really having one, if she learns that Stefan isn’t going to make it and will, in fact, die, she may be forced to do the right thing and give his heart to Julie.

Overall though, she may find her life forever altered, because, without Stefan, she is not only once again alone, but Vivian (and whether she gets out of Salem for good) will also become her responsibility.

“Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC.
