Why is Will Horton in Jail on ‘Days of Our Lives’ – What Did He Do to Adrienne?

One of the big mysteries still lingering is why Will Horton‘s in jail on Days of Our Lives. Spoilers know it’s been a minute since the time jump on DOOL. Yet there are no specifics on why Chandler Massey’s character is behind bars. It’s not clear yet to viewers what he did to Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans). All that’s been mentioned is a car accident. Take a look at why Will Horton’s behind bars and what’s next for the NBC soap.

Why is Will Horton in Prison on Days of Our Lives?

There were lots of surprises in store for DOOL watchers with the one-year fast forward. But one of the biggest was that Will Horton was rotting in a prison cell alongside the man who once killed him. Clearly, Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) never imagined he’d be in jail alongside one of his necktie killer victims. And you can bet Will never envisioned that either.

Yet, the brand new scenes post-time jump devoted an entire episode to Ben spilling his guts to his cellie, remind Days of Our Lives spoilers. Then, at the end of that episode, Ben protested his innocence and said he shouldn’t be in jail. As for Will, he clapped back confirming his personal guilt for his actions. But what did Will Horton do exactly, ask Days of Our Lives spoilers?

LONG POST WARNING My weight has been an obstacle for 3 years. The left picture is me in 2016, 191 lbs & 30% body fat. I had been off Days for 2 years, and had utterly let myself go. I rationalized my lifestyle by telling myself that once I started working again, I could easily shed the weight & be “camera ready”. The next year, I got the chance to prove myself right. Will Horton was back baby, and he was going to be lean, mean, & better than ever. But there was a problem. The fat that I had assumed was going to melt off my body like butter on a hot pancake refused to leave. I tried everything to get my fat cells to f*** off. Fasting, paleo, whole30, cico, keto, juicing, low carb, no carb. I tried to appeal to my vanity, pride, anger, shame. None of it worked. If you watch Days I’m sure you noticed I looked different the 2nd time around. There was a reason they gave @mrchristophersean the shirtless scenes while I chilled in plaid flannels. Some nights after crushing a box of lucky charms I told myself that this was just the journey of getting older. I was never going to be fit again, so why continue this pattern starving & binging, of quietly throwing up in the kitchen sink after my roommates fell asleep & trying to slap some willpower into me. I gave up 100 times during those 3 years. I tried again 101 times. I can’t point to a specific moment that was a turning point. Rather I believe it was the gradual process of learning from each failure. Instead of clinging to a fad diet I began to critically examine my relationship to food. I realized that my crappy eating habits were tied to negative emotional states. When I learned to recognize & deal with those emotions, I saw food for what it really is: a tool, not a bandaid. This was not a smooth journey. Just last Sunday I ate a family size pack of Oreos bc I was upset about GoT. But after each step backward I manage to forgive myself and take 2 steps forward. The picture on the right is me yesterday. I now weigh 160 lbs & have 12% body fat, reaching a goal that I wrote on my bathroom mirror 3 years ago. I’m not ashamed of the person on the left anymore, but damn am I proud of the man on the right.

DOOL Spoilers: Will Caused Adrienne’s Death

Days of Our Lives spoilers leak the explanation behind Adrienne’s untimely death in dribs and drabs. At first, we found out Will Horton was in jail. Then, we found out he’s sentenced for Adrienne dying. Finally, we learned it was a car crash that took Adrienne’s life. That means Will Horton might have been driving her, hint Days of Our Lives spoilers. Clearly, though, he did something to trigger his imprisonment.

Given that Will Horton worked for Adrienne at the Salem Spectator, it begs the question of whether they were working together when she died. For now, though, it’s obvious that Will Horton “killing” Adrienne ruined his life. Because, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) can’t get over it, Days of Our Lives spoilers tell us. But on the plus side, he sure got buff in prison and has new shirtless scenes soon…

Days of Our Lives: More to Come on Adrienne Death and Will’s Role in It

Certainly, DOOL spoilers have more to spill about how exactly Adrienne died. And also why Will Horton’s taking the blame. Because, his mom Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) insisted it was an accident and he didn’t mean for it to happen. So, Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate that Will Horton did nothing malicious to cause Adrienne’s tragic passing.

However, the Salem court certainly thought he deserved time behind bars for the car crash that killed Adrienne. It also seems unlikely that he would drive drunk and hurt her. But obviously, Will’s involvement in Adrienne’s passing was serious enough for a judge to send him to prison. So, keep watching as DOOL sees this sad tale unfold on the NBC sudsfest.
