Belle makes him promise not to tell anyone ever as he tells Phillip that Sami stole from Stefano. Phillip laughs and thinks it's good for her. Belle tells him it's not funny as it was $500 million and now Sami's gone completely so that no one can find her. Phillip realizes the DiMeras sent Chad after her to find out where Sami is. Belle explains that Chad now turned on them to warn her. Phillip asks if she's sure. Belle admits she's not sure of anything right now, revealing to him that Sami put half of the money in a bank account in her name. Belle suggests giving the half back to Stefano so that she's out of it for good. Phillip worries that if Stefano gets her half back, he'll do whatever he can to get the other half back including hurting people. Phillip encourages Belle to keep the money and stay quiet, adding that he will protect her.

Abigail asks if he really remembers everything. Chad confirms all those nights with what Andre did, Stefano, and Ben like someone hit a switch. Abigail asks what happens when his family finds out and turns on him. Chad says that's why he isn't going to tell them until they give up the obsession with Sami and the money otherwise they would all be in danger so he has to let them think they are still in control.
Rafe tells Andre that it was just a question. Andre thinks he's probing to find out if he has anything to do with the drug and asks if Hope sent him.
