Hope tells him that she went to Stefano for a confession because she knew he was responsible for Bo's kidnapping but he denied it.

Hope cries that she would've confessed but she couldn't do it to Ciara and Chase since they both just lost their fathers. Roman understands she was trying to protect them but questions why she didn't come to him. Hope yells that she couldn't then lets it slip that it was bad enough that she involved Rafe.

André tells Chad that he has to believe he's innocent as it was Hope who killed Stefano in cold blood and is trying to frame him. André tells Chad to help him and show him some mercy as his brother. Chad responds that he feels nothing but hatred and disgust for him so he will not lift a finger to help him.

Abigail brings Thomas in to the DiMera Mansion and asks Chad how he's doing. Chad responds that he's not sure other than conflicted. Chad knows Stefano was not a stand up guy or a role model. Chad felt justified turning his back on him in the end but he didn't think that would really be the end as he thought Stefano would always be there and maybe someday change so they could work things out. Chad points out that Stefano never got to meet his grandson Thomas. Abigail encourages that he would've loved him.

Chad tells Abigail that he's done wallowing and feeling sorry for himself. Chad admits he's sad that his father is gone but he doesn't think Stefano would want him sitting around feeling glum and morose. Chad thinks Stefano would want him to grab life by the horns and live life to the fullest. Abigail asks what he wants to do. Chad wants them to begin their new life together immediately. Chad wants to do a real wedding right here in Salem. Chad asks how that sounds. Abigail responds that it sounds perfect and kisses him.
Deimos pulls out a phone from his drawer and deletes several old text messages from Seth Malcolm.
Hope walks out of the town square where Rafe meets her. Rafe asks what's wrong. Hope tells him that Roman got the whole truth out of her about killing Stefano and their cover-up. Rafe asks what he's going to do. Hope says nothing since Roman believed Stefano deserved to be dead and that André deserved to be in prison the rest of his life. Rafe thinks that's a relief but Hope tells him there's more. Hope says she was so positive that Stefano was behind Bo's kidnapping but what if she was wrong and she killed the wrong man?
