Marlena asks how Brady is. Theresa says he's on edge and out of his mind like her. Theresa adds that all that matters is finding Tate so they will figure it out.

Theresa responds that she loves Brady so much but if they don't find their son then she doesn't know if they can live through that. Theresa questions if their love can survive.
Victor knows rewards aren't a good idea but offers money if they need anything. John points out that Theresa already offered a reward but Victor feels it would have a bigger impact coming from him.
