Mickey sees Tom’s ghost and asks what Tom is trying to tell him.

Tony continues his phone conversation with Stefano who has referred to the twins as belonging to the world. Tony explains that he is sick and tired of waiting for Stefano to tell him the plan for the twins. They talk about Abe being in the way of the DiMeras gaining control and having control over Theo.

Jennifer and Maggie crowd around Lexie to try and comfort her but Lexie wants to go and find her husband. Maggie and Jennifer offer to stay and watch Theo. Lexie leaves.

Jack says that Victor might have been angry enough to kill him. Nicole gets defensive, claiming that anyone in the neighborhood could be waiting in line to shoot him, thinking him to be the telephone repairman who has yet to fix the lines. Brady tells Nicole to stop talking like that. Victor admits to threatening Jack but still insists that he didn’t try and shoot Jack. Abe tells them that his people are searching for proof that Jack was shot at and that witnesses heard a gunshot noise. Victor argues with Abe that a gunshot noise could be anything and orders Henderson to show Abe and Jack out. Abe insists that he isn’t going anywhere because there is a killer in this room.

Jennifer and Maggie try to convince themselves that they are just talking foolish about spirits and omens. They suggest they follow Mickey’s attitude. The doorbell rings and it is Mickey who asks if they’ve heard from Jack. Maggie informs Mickey that Lexie is looking for Abe and they are there watching Theo. Mickey tells them that he came by to check on them and Maggie notices that Mickey is pale. Mickey tells them that he thinks he might be losing his mind because he saw Tom’s ghost.

The doorbell rings at the DiMera mansion and Tony quickly covers the funeral wreath. He answers the door to an upset Lexie who wants to talk. She asks Tony if Abe is safe. Tony tries to be coy but Lexie insists that she is serious and tells Tony about Abe seeing Tom’s ghost. Tony doesn’t believe that Abe, a by the facts man, actually saw Tom’s ghost. He tells Lexie to forget it, that it’s just a silly superstition. Lexie is still upset so Tony offers to pour her a drink to steady her nerves. Lexie asks Tony about Abe hearing someone saying that “He’s back.” Tony blames it on a publicity stunt from the Terminator movie but Lexie continues to tell Tony about Abe seeing Stefano’s name on the wall, demanding to know if Stefano could be alive.

Abe insists that someone is obstructing justice to protect the murder for he has proof that the security cameras were tampered with and vows to soon have enough evidence to make more than one arrest.

Tony insists to Lexie that Stefano is dead and assures Lexie that whatever Abe saw is nothing to worry about. Lexie wants to talk about good things and changes the topic to Theo’s christening tomorrow. She warns him that Abe isn’t going to let Tony be too much of an influence on Theo. Tony suggests that those circumstances may change but Lexie says she has to stick with her husband on this one and thanks Tony for his support. They say goodbye and Lexie leaves. Tony returns to the living room and Stefano’s urn as he apologizes to Lexie for deceiving her, pointing out that only DiMeras come back to life.

Abe gets upset with Jack for ignoring his warning not to get involved and asks Victor if he wants to press charges against Jack.

Bart joins Tony in the living room. Tony tells Bart about Lexie’s recent visit. Bart insists that he won’t be at Abe’s funeral.

Victor thanks him and insists to Abe that they have more police protection. Abe assures Victor that he’ll have an arrest in the Colin Murphy murder very soon. Nicole starts to wring her hands so Victor takes her hands, telling Abe that this has been very nerve-wracking for both of them. Abe vows that justice will be done.
