Eric calls that impossible after he kidnapped Nicole. Xander informs him that his uncle Victor is a very powerful man who owed him a favor and now he's back in Salem because he owes him another one.

Chloe asks where she is then. Mateo states that Theresa is almost as beautiful as Chloe but he gave her everything and it wasn't enough. Chloe suggests she just wanted to be free and asks if she's alright. Mateo informs her that an associate found her in his private office which is always locked which means she stole the key from Miguel. Chloe asks where she is. Mateo calls Theresa a whore and says he knew the truth that she wanted to find evidence against him since the day she got here so Shane could bring him down. Chloe asks if Theresa is okay.

Theresa tells him that it's Mateo who goes by El Fideo and he wanted her back after being together years ago. Theresa states that he's a ruthless drug lord so she had no choice. Brady suggests just saying no. Theresa cries that she has seen him kill men so she wasn't going to put Brady and Tate in his path. Brady questions why she didn't come to him if this is true. Theresa cries that she wanted to but she couldn't if she wanted to keep them safe so she lied and pushed him away but she never went back to drugs or slept with another man.

Brady tells her that he has all night for her complicated story and then he'll let her know if he believes her. Brady questions how she even got here. Theresa reveals it was Xander which Brady can't believe. Theresa explains that Xander caught her trying to get information and he could've left her to be killed but he didn't. Brady says Xander doesn't do anything out of the goodness of his heart. Theresa reveals that she promised he would be welcomed into the family if he helped her. Brady calls that a hell of a promise from someone who doesn't give a damn about their family. Theresa knows it's hard to understand and harder to forgive but she loves him and never stopped. Brady argues that she shouldn't have seen Tate yet because of how confused he must be now. Theresa cries that he remembered her and she just wants Brady to be happy to see her.

Chloe says she's just stunned because she thought Mateo loved her so why would he kill her. Mateo responds that he did love her but now he has Chloe.

Mateo says only the ones who betray him while Chloe is much smarter than Theresa and she understands now that people who screw with him die so she won't make the same mistake. Mateo tells Chloe that he wants her love and he just wants to make her happy. Chloe repeats that she just wants to go home to her son.
