Andre tells him to kill Hope and inherit the money to pay his debts so he asks how Chad factors in. Aiden tells them that he will kill Hope and make it look like the necktie killer did it tomorrow night on their wedding night. Stefano calls it excellent.

Andre wants more details on how he expects to pull this off as the police will want proof that it's the real necktie killer. Aiden insists that he can make it look authentic as he saw the photos of the crime scenes while representing Chad and he got a replica of the same necktie so the police will have no choice to let Chad go.
