Chili guesses somebody on the outside likes Hope.
Kate finishes a call with her son Austin and tells Shawn and Rafe that she gave him full access to all of the DiMera financials from the time Stefano died so he will follow the money. Kate adds that he said Stefano was transferring funds in to his personal account. Rafe notes that Sami had stolen all the money from his personal account.

Victor asks if he turned the woman in but Deimos says he hired her to keep Hope safe. Deimos reminds him that he spent years in prison. Victor thanks him. Deimos knows he can never atone for the suffering he caused Victor and his family. Victor responds that cancer is what killed Bo. Deimos still blames having Bo locked up. Victor says it only would've given him a little more time. Deimos questions Victor trying to lessen his guilt. Victor says he is accepting part of that burden because he was responsible for turning Deimos into the man who could do what he did to Bo and Maggie. Deimos notes he's never said anything like that before. Victor says that he's saying it now. Deimos states that he will never forgive himself for the time Bo lost with his family. Victor blames himself for sending Bo on the mission that led him to Deimos so he will never forgive himself either. Victor says he will help Justin as much as he can with the appeal, bribing a judge, or anything they can do to get Hope back to her children. Victor acknowledges that Deimos took steps to get Hope home again and he appreciates that. Deimos worries that it's not enough as she's in prison because of him. Victor says he had nothing to do with Stefano. Deimos declares he owes Hope her freedom and a Kiriakis always pays his debts.
Hattie informs Hope that Chili is being paid a lot of money to make sure nobody lays a hand on her. Hattie says normally that takes years but for Hope it took one day. She calls her a lucky girl. Hope guesses it was Deimos. Hattie figures Hope won't be needing her help anymore but Hope says they are friends that are in this together.
Shawn feels any life insurance company would deny Stefano coverage. Kate recalls opening policies on each other when they were married. Rafe questions why Stefano would want more life insurance. Kate suggests maybe he knew death was imminent. Rafe insists that Stefano made Hope believe he had Bo tortured. Rafe believes Stefano goaded Hope in to shooting him. Shawn thinks Justin should be able to call that suicide instead of murder. Rafe says they'd have to prove it but if they could, it could be Hope's ticket to freedom.
