Haley goes to Kate's hospital room and encourages her to eat but she says she's not hungry. Haley wants her to keep up her strength after what she's been through. Kate questions how she would know what she's been through. Haley says she read her chart and she's not judging her as she's been there herself, but she promises it gets better. Kate tells her that she didn't try to kill herself as a deranged woman injected her with a sedative to make it look that way. Haley comments that was not in the charts.
Chad declares he's not leaving Salem without making Abigail his wife so he asks Abigail to be his wife again. Chad doesn't want to pressure her and knows it's a lot to ask but he asks if she will marry him. Abigail says yes and kisses him. Chad knows it's all moving fast but they have to move to Paris. Abigail says she wants it more than anything and admits it's really fast. Chad calls it a new beginning for them and the kids.

Abigail says they have so much planning to do and not much time as they kiss on the bed.
Jennifer appreciates Julie's support and encouragement. Julie knows she comes on strong at times but points out that Chad and Abigail ended up back together. Jennifer says she couldn't be happier for them but she doesn't think a reunion is in the cards for her and Jack. Jennifer admits she still loves Jack but their love is rooted in their history that he doesn't remember. Julie continues to encourage her. Jennifer adds that she's also fighting Eve, who is doing everything she can to turn Jack against her. Jennifer feels it will be too late if Dr. Rolf's serum ever becomes available so it doesn't matter. Julie urges her not to stop fighting, comparing it to how Abigail didn't and now she's back with the man she loves. Julie is betting on Jack and Jennifer happening sooner than she imagines.
Jack asks JJ what's going on with Haley. JJ brings up her being undocumented. Jack asks if someone found out. JJ says no but right before he told him, she had ran out freaked out. JJ mentions being upset before Jack showed up that night. Jack calls himself a failure as a father, bringing up what happened with Abigail when Charlotte was missing and feeling like he made everything worse. JJ assures that it wasn't his fault since Abigail wasn't in a good place. Jack states that he doesn't know how to help his children. JJ argues that isn't true since he saw right away that he needed to open up about Haley and it made him feel better. Jack is glad he could help with that at least. JJ admits it might not be like it used to be but he's grateful to have his dad to talk to again. JJ adds that Haley is worried sick about her secret coming out so no one can know. JJ asks Jack to promise him not to say anything to anyone. Jack apologizes and says he's not sure he can do that..

Chad says he heard what Jordan did and asks if she's okay. Kate says other than everyone thinking she tried to kill herself, she's fine. Chad asks how she found out what Jordan was up to. Kate explains how she ran into her in the town square and she was acting nervous then she dropped her bag and out dropped a tube of diaper rash ointment. Kate says she tried to call the police when Jordan jammed a syringe in her neck and dragged her to her room to stage it like an overdose. Kate acknowledges that if Rafe hadn't found her, she probably would've died but she's great now. Kate asks about Charlotte. Chad says she's good and promised to get her back in Abigail's arms which he did. Kate knew he never stopped loving Abigail.

Julie hugs Abigail and says she is overjoyed that she is back with Chad and that she never gave up. Julie says now they can start working on Jennifer but Jennifer wants to concentrate on celebrating Abigail and Chad. Abigail asks if they want the good news or the bad news first so they decide on the bad.
JJ questions why Jack can't keep Haley's status a secret. Jack explains that he's been concerned about JJ ever since he told him and asks how he knows that Haley isn't just using him to get a green card. JJ calls that ridiculous since that would mean getting married when he barely knows her. Jack questions them already living together then. JJ points out that she had nowhere else to go. Jack argues that JJ is harboring an undocumented immigrant so if someone finds out, he goes to jail. JJ asks if he's saying he's going to turn her in. Jack feels obligated to protect him. JJ has no idea where this is coming from. Haley then comes in and questions what she just walked in on.

Haley then thinks back to when they kissed. Jack states that he just wants to make sure his son doesn't get hurt. Haley asks why JJ would get hurt.
Kate asks Chad if he's serious. Chad is tired of dwelling in the past and he just wants to look forward so if Abigail can forgive him then he can surely forgive Kate. Kate tells him how happy that makes her. Kate mentions still having influence on the DiMera Board so she will talk to Mr. Shin and they will bring down Stefan once and for all. Chad informs her that he's letting all that go. Kate argues that he can't let Stefan win. Chad states that he won since he got his family back after almost losing them so he can't take that risk again. Kate notes that he seems relieved. Kate tells Chad to go enjoy himself. Chad informs her that they have some news.
Jennifer and Julie question Abigail moving to Paris. Abigail explains that Chad is taking over the DiMera office there. Jennifer questions them moving to another country after just reconciling.

Abigail calls it a chance for a fresh start. Julie gives her full support then which Jennifer questions. Julie points out that not long ago, Jennifer and Jack needed a fresh start and moved to London so she thinks Abigail and Chad deserve the same fresh start. Abigail then reveals they have to go tonight which shocks Jennifer. Jennifer says Chad can go before them. Abigail says he offered that but if they are going to have a fresh start, she wants it to be together as a family. Jennifer cries as she hugs her but agrees that Julie is right that she has to do what's best for her and her family. Jennifer then asks for the good news.
Eli asks Sonny and Will what happened after Leo hit his head. Sonny explains that he was bleeding on the floor and not moving so they thought he was dead but he wasn't. Eli questions not calling the cops. Will explains that they panicked as the guy suing Sonny dies in Sonny's house the night before the lawsuit is going to start so they knew no one would believe it was an accident. Eli asks if they have any evidence proving it was an accident because Leo has the photos. Sonny talks about Leo blackmailing him with the photos for months. Eli says they will deal with that later but right now he's asking what they have that proves this wasn't an attempted murder. Will admits all they have is their word. Eli responds that he's sorry but that's not enough.
Jennifer tells Abigail that a wedding in Paris is so romantic. Julie suggests waiting until Chad needs a break in the summer so they can come back and get married at home. Julie is excited to start planning it but Abigail tells them they don't have to wait because they are going to have the wedding today. Abigail adds that they hoped to do an intimate family wedding at the house. Jennifer calls that perfect and asks what they can do.

Jennifer says she'll be right back and exits.
Chad informs Kate that there will be a wedding as he and Abigail are getting married before they leave tonight at the Horton house with just family.

JJ says of course but Jack feels he shouldn't be there. Jennifer informs him that Abigail specifically asked her to invite him and they both want him to be there.
Will questions Eli that telling him what actually happened means nothing. Eli says it means something to him but to others, it might look like a coverup. Sonny assures it's the truth. Eli tells them to sit tight as he talks to Hope to see what she wants to do. Eli then exits the room. Sonny regrets bringing Will into this mess but Will says it's Leo's fault, not his. Sonny talks about having Gabi tie Leo up so they could spend the night together and that's probably what pushed him over the edge so they shouldn't have antagonized him. Will responds that he doesn't regret it. Sonny brings up prison. Will says he got to be with him so no matter what happens next, it was worth it.
Marlena questions what evidence Leo has against Sonny and Will. Leo tells her that's none of her business as he handed everything over to the police so they are handling it now and that's all he has to say. Marlena warns that he doesn't have the upper hand because the truth always comes out.
