Claire joins Doug and Julie at the Pub. Julie comments on it being too long since they have seen her. Doug asks how she's doing. Claire is frustrated at nothing happening with her musical career but they encourage her. Claire brings up Chad and Abigail. Claire mentions Ciara saying Chad is having a rough time and she feels bad for him and Thomas. Claire notes their expressions and asks if something happened. Julie reveals to her that Jennifer is suing Chad for custody of Thomas. Claire doesn't think she would do that but Julie explains that she felt she had no choice. Claire calls it sad. Doug says they do what they have to in order to protect their children and grandchildren. Doug mentions calling Hope and not hearing back. Doug guesses she must be swamped on a case.

Brady talks about chasing leads but getting nothing. Theresa mentions Shane contacting the ISA. Shawn tells Brady that nothing has panned out yet. Brady worries that going on television will bring out all the nut jobs. Theresa screams that at least she did something and blames Brady for bringing Summer to Salem. Brady yells back at her about concentrating on finding their son.
Maggie calls it impossible for Summer to kidnap Tate. Maggie hopes Victor is not the one who put the thought out there. John assures her that it's coming from a lot of different sources. Paul explains how Summer warned Theresa to take good care of her son before leaving town. John brings up Summer's feelings for Brady and her criminal history. Maggie argues that a con artist isn't a kidnapper and insists Summer wouldn't do that. Victor knows Maggie doesn't want to think she is evil. Maggie argues there is no proof. John points out that Summer left town the same time that Tate went missing. Paul asks if she gave any clues as to where she might go. Maggie mentions Summer living in Texas and then California.

Victor calls her the most obvious suspect. Maggie asks why. Victor brings up Brady turning her down and suggests she could be in it for the money. Maggie feels part of it is her fault for abandoning Summer as a baby. Maggie thinks she could've done so much more to help her. Victor tells her that she did more than enough and it's not her fault that she's a criminal and liar that deserves to be in prison or worse. Maggie cries.
Shawn and Belle decide to head to the back to let Brady and Theresa talk. Brady says it's been a long day with nothing going right. Brady tries to get through to her. Theresa tells him that she's sorry that she's so angry at him for bringing Summer to Salem. Theresa says she can hardly look at him and knows it's unfair but she told him that Summer was trouble. Theresa cries that Brady sided with Summer over her. Brady insists on his love for Theresa and asks what more he can do. Brady decides he will go check in with John then and exits the house.
Justin asks Aiden why he didn't alert Hope to Stefano's plan to kill her. Aiden says he wanted to so badly but Stefano made it clear that he would kill Chase if he backed out so he hoped to find a way out. Roman calls it very strange that he conveniently leaves certain pages blank. Roman says Aiden would have had to tell Hope everything about being on Stefano's payroll and being brought to seduce her. Roman says Stefano knew he wouldn't go through with it so he made the switch to a hired killer. Justin is more interested as to why Aiden added his name to Hope's life insurance right before the attempted murder. Aiden insists that wasn't him and must have been the DiMeras. Aiden tells them that they should be questioning André as he should pay and he'll do anything he can to help bring him down.
André has a drink in his room and says today will be justice for all. André goes back to watching the camera on Rafe.
Hope returns to Rafe and tells her that she couldn't get a signal outside either. Rafe tells her to drive until she gets a signal. Hope refuse to leave without him. Rafe doesn't want both of them to die but Hope insists on finding a way to get him out of the chains. Hope asks Rafe how he ended up here. Rafe says all he knows is that Aiden just bought this property from the DiMeras and that his whole story was BS. Hope tells him that she knows and asks if André is involved. Rafe says probably but it doesn't matter and tells Hope to just go. Hope works on getting Rafe out of the chains.
Paul says he couldn't get anything on an airline number. John assumes Summer planned this carefully which means she would need a new identity. Paul says the thought of anyone taking Tate makes him so angry. Paul feels he is cold and cunning like John but John jokes that he's unreadable and sly. Brady enters and asks if there's anything but Victor says no. Maggie tells Brady that she is so sorry if Summer is responsible. Brady says it's starting to look that way and he's sorry too. John declares they've got something.
Theresa sits at home and jumps when Shawn's phone rings. Shawn rushes in to answer it but it has nothing to do with Tate. Belle notices Theresa's drawings of her wedding gown and praises it. Theresa calls herself stupid for thinking she could have it all and says she doesn't deserve it. Theresa calls it payback for the horrible things she did to people. Belle encourages her that her dreams can still come true. Shawn adds that none of this is her fault. Shawn steps out to make another call.
Julie and Claire talk about enjoying the food at the Pub while Doug tries calling Hope again but still no answer. Doug says he should be used to this by now but the idea of Hope's life in danger in the field never gets easier.

Shawn responds that he's on his way and rushes off.

John says he can make a call to have Summer's picture all over the airport. Paul contacts a hotel manager in Las Vegas that he knew from his baseball days and confirms that she just checked in to the hotel there. Brady thanks him and says he doesn't want any cops or agents to freak her out while she has his son. Brady promises to be in touch as he rushes out.
Justin tells Roman that there's nothing he can charge Aiden with. Roman argues that Aiden had all the equipment for a murder and thinks he must be guilty of conspiracy. Justin points out that Stefano's dead and André would deny it. Roman questions just cutting Aiden loose. Justin says they will follow him very closely and catch they hope him doing something that will hold up in court. Roman hates that he has to tell Hope.
Hope tells Rafe that Shawn will be there before the bomb stops in 5 minutes. Rafe questions what the bomb squad is going to be able to do in that time and continues telling Hope to just go as the bomb counts down from 4 minutes.
Victor complains about Summer and thinks he should send some men down for backup. John thinks Brady is right that they don't want Summer to panic while she has Tate. Maggie wishes they could do something. John tells them to just hope Brady gets to Vegas before Summer runs with Tate again.
Julie asks Claire if she's heard any news about Tate. Claire tells her about Belle saying Theresa thinks Summer took him which surprises her. Claire hates thinking of what could be happening to Tate.

Doug calls that a good idea and calls Shawn but gets his voicemail. Doug tells him to call when he gets his message as he's trying to get a hold of Hope.
Belle looks outside and sees that Shawn left after stepping out to make a call. Theresa hopes he heard something about Tate then cries that there is no hope. Brady returns and informs them that they may have a lead on Summer in Las Vegas. Brady says he just wanted to tell Theresa in person because he's on the next flight out. Theresa declares she's going with him.
Roman tells Aiden that he's free to go but something tells him that he will see him soon because liars like him never get too far from trouble. Aiden responds that he's not lying about loving Hope. Roman yells at him to shut up because Hope won't have a damn thing to do with him ever again. Roman tells him to get out of his sight so Aiden exits the station.
Hope tells Rafe that she's not going anywhere and reminds him that Shawn is on his way to the bomb squad so they are going to get through this. Rafe insists that she needs to go. Hope tells him that she will hurry back. Hope kisses Rafe and exits as the bomb counts down from 2 minutes.
Theresa gathers her things and goes to leave but Brady stops her because it could get ugly and he doesn't know what they are getting into. Theresa insists on going.

Doug comments on being unable to get a hold of anybody and wonders what's going on. Claire reminds him not to speculate like he said earlier.
