Ben brings Abigail home from the hospital after having her checked out due to her stomach pains. Ben thinks they both know this was caused by all the drama with Chad.
Andre finishes a call at home and informs Chad that Clyde has just been arrested. Chad asks if the cops found proof that he killed Serena and Paige.
Roman brings Clyde in to the police station. Clyde argues and brings up Abigail marrying Ben. Clyde blames JJ's personal life and looking for attention. Clyde argues that there's no proof but Roman informs him that he heard the whole conversation. Roman suggests he call his lawyer because of this serious situation. Roman exits and sees Aiden. Aiden informs Roman that he doesn't represent Clyde but he'd hate to see him let go now that he's finally in custody. Aiden has something for Roman that he hopes will keep Clyde behind bars for a long time. Aiden adds not to say he got it from him. Aiden explains how he started working with Clyde and how Hope thought Clyde was bad news from the beginning. Aiden adds that he dropped Clyde because he scared him and threatened his son. Aiden says he found a witness in Florida who could put Clyde away if he wasn't scared to talk. Aiden adds that he went digging and found information to share.
Abigail talks about Chad being searched for. Ben questions her being worried about him. Abigail talks about knowing someone a long time and it being hard to detach. Ben blames Chad for the murders but Abigail asks him to stop saying that because there's no proof. Ben thinks she would still defend him even if he was proven guilty. Abigail doesn't want to go there. Ben asks what if he was always talking about a girl from his past and wanting to be there for her. Ben asks if she would like that. Abigail admits she wouldn't. Abigail says she's just known Chad for a long time and remarks that it would be just as unbelievable to her if someone said Ben was a murderer. Abigail calls it strange as Chad had no motive to attack Serena, Paige, or Marlena. Ben argues that Marlena saw him. Abigail responds that things aren't always as they seem so she thinks Chad is being framed. Ben wonders who would do that. Abigail doesn't know but she admits she's scared about what might happen to Chad with Eduardo's reward out. Ben tells her that there is nothing they can do about it either way. Abigail agrees and tells Ben that she just wants to take care of their baby. Ben wants to take care of them both. Abigail wants to take a shower and asks Ben to come with her. Abigail heads to the bathroom. Ben goes to his drawer and finds a left over necktie then remembers the attacks.
Roman returns to Clyde and suggests he cooperate. Clyde questions talking without his lawyer. Roman says he did a lot of talking with JJ earlier, revealing their phones were connected so he heard everything including Clyde admitting to running the drug ring. Clyde argues that JJ did the talking and calls it entrapment. Roman tells Clyde things won't work with him. Clyde asks why JJ would be afraid of him and brings up JJ's past selling drugs. Clyde thinks JJ is trying to deflect suspicion. Clyde tells Roman that he's not going to say anything incriminating. Roman tells him that he's a slippery guy and he might get away with threatening JJ but that's not all he has. Clyde believes he's bluffing. Roman steps out again.
Andre tells Chad that he didn't mean to get his hopes up but Clyde was arrested after an altercation with JJ on the docks. Andre adds that the good news is that since Clyde is in custody, they can have someone slip in to his house. Chad smiles and realizes he can prove Clyde's the killer.
Abigail calls Ben to the shower. Ben says he'll be right there and stuffs the necktie in to the trash can. Ben then gets a call from Clyde. Clyde informs him that Roman brought him in on bogus charges and this is his one phone call. Clyde tells him he's okay and will get out soon.

Ben explains that Clyde just got arrested and wanted him to call his lawyer but he's just going to go to the station. Abigail offers to go with him but Ben wants her to stay and rest. Ben then rushes out.
Chad asks if Andre and Stefano had anything to do with Clyde's arrest. Andre explains that Clyde began to see himself as invincible which was the beginning of his downfall. Chad questions why Andre is helping him. Andre tells him that's what family does. Chad says he doesn't even know him. Andre tells him he will if he stays out of prison.

JJ goes to the police station. Roman tells him that he's lucky to be alive. JJ says he did what he had to do after what happened to Paige and to keep his family safe. Roman says he could've called him. JJ says it worked and hopes they can keep him. Roman informs him that he's figured a way to send Clyde to Florida on murder charges while they can build a case against him here which wouldn't have happened without JJ.
