Phillip suggests staying right here.
Abigail and Jennifer sit at home together watching TV. Jennifer realizes they have been doing this for three hours so she's ready for bed. Abigail checks on her back and suggests another pain pill. Abigail hopes Chad calls before he goes to bed.
André brings Chad to the DiMera Mansion and continues telling him about Hope coming to confront Stefano. Chad argues it doesn't make any sense for Hope to have got by the guards. André shows Chad the blood on the statue. André informs him that he had the blood tested and it's Stefano's so he wants an explanation.
Ciara and Hope sit at home. Hope is reading a murder mystery book but can't get into it. Ciara comments that she's probably had her fill of those.
André tells Chad that Stefano has vanished and they haven't heard a word in days so they owe it to themselves to find out what happened to him since he may have been murdered. André says he knows how Chad feels about family but Chad says he doesn't and points out it's not the first time Stefano's blood has been spilled. Chad questions André's panic at the first sign of blood. André accuses him of not giving a damn. André asks Chad if he'd prefer that Stefano was dead.
Belle questions Phillip wanting to stay with her in Las Vegas. Phillip says maybe not Las Vegas but they have the jet and can go anywhere to extend their trip longer.

André remarks that Chad isn't behaving like Stefano is his father. Chad goes to leave but André stops him. André brings up Hope blaming Stefano for Bo's death and being hell-bent on revenge. Chad argues that Hope doesn't kill people, she arrests them. André points out that Hope is grieving the love of her life and everybody has a breaking point. André argues that nothing supports Stefano planning an escape and he's never used the flight company before. Chad argues that it doesn't mean anything but André insists, pointing out the blood on the statue. Chad stops him and yells that it doesn't prove his insane theory. Chad declares that Stefano is alive and coming back. Chad then exits.

Belle realizes Phillip is serious about them having something going here. Belle doesn't get why he thinks they need to leave Salem behind.

Phillip goes to kiss her but Belle stops him and says she's not ready for that. Phillip guesses it's too soon.
Hope answers the door as Chad arrives and apologizes for bothering her so late. Hope tells him it's fine and invites him in. Chad tells Hope that he came to warn her that André is gunning for her because he's convinced that she killed Stefano. Hope responds that she's aware as André spoke to her about it. Chad tells her that he's willing to run interference for her if she confirms to him that she had nothing to do with Stefano's disappearance.
Belle says she'd be a hypocrite to say it's too soon after everything that happened between them. Phillip suggests making it happen again as they kiss. Phillip thinks him coming back to town at the same time that she became free could be destiny. Belle doesn't believe in destiny. Phillip suggests Shawn wasn't the one for her and maybe now she has turned to the one who is. Belle reminds him they have an early flight tomorrow back to Salem so they should pack.
Hope tells Chad that André's suspicions are baseless. Chad decides he won't take up any more of her time then and warns her to be careful as he then exits. Ciara comes back downstairs and asks what Chad was doing there. Hope questions what she heard. Ciara says enough and asks what's going on. Hope tells her that Stefano is missing and André thinks she's responsible. Ciara notes that's why she's been on edge all night and asks what André is going to do and how scared they should be.

Belle tells Shawn that he forfeited his right to ask about her personal life with the divorce papers as he gave up on them. Belle questions wanting to talk about reconciliation and thinks he has some explaining to do. Shawn admits he does and that he's as much to blame as she is for their marriage falling apart since he made her feel like it was all her fault when it wasn't. Shawn blames himself for focusing on his career and pushing her away.
Phillip returns to the Kiriakis Mansion and tells Victor about work. Victor points out that Phillip was late for meetings and assumes he was distracted by Belle which confirms taking her was a mistake. Phillip realizes he was keeping tabs on him. Phillip explains that he was late because a conference call ran long and he's killing it at work. Phillip asks if he's really upset that he brought Belle along or if he's upset with him over something. Victor responds that it has nothing to do with him but losing Bo and Daniel then having Deimos back in his life. Victor assures that he doesn't doubt Phillip at all and he knows he's loyal. Victor wants Phillip to stay focused and be extra careful with Deimos back in town. Victor alerts Phillip to a deal that he trusts him to take care of as he then exits.
