Dario tells Gabi that he thinks it's great if JJ makes her happy but he still wonders about her and Chad. Gabi asks what there is to wonder about. Gabi says Chad was just a rebound while he was mourning Abigail and she was upset with JJ so they leaned on each other. Dario thinks it was more than that but Gabi says no. Dario asks if she's afraid of feeling things for Chad. Gabi argues against it and reveals she quit working for Chad. Gabi says she realized she needs to work on more than one client and branch out if she wants a career. Dario tells her he's impressed and thinks it's great that she is ambitious. Gabi tells him that she has to go and walks past him but accidentally knocks one of his bags down, causing a purse to fall out so Gabi stops to question him.
Chad asks what this has to do with fraud. Rafe explains that there was a lot more going on with Stefano than just diabetes but he and George didn't disclose that. George sticks to doctor-patient confidentiality and declares they are through here without a court order. Chad stops him and says he is Stefano's only surviving son so he doesn't give a damn about the confidentiality. Chad demands he tell him the state of Stefano's health at the time of his death.

Abigail falls asleep in the attic then wakes up when she hears Julie singing on her way to the attic.
Dario tells Gabi that it's nothing but Gabi acknowledges it as one of the hottest purses in town which she had been saving money for. Dario pretends it was Gabi's Christmas present. Gabi can't believe it and tells him it's too expensive. Dario says he has to take it home to wrap it and put it under the tree so she has to pretend to act surprised. Gabi suggests she take it now and she can wear it to holiday parties. Dario argues that it's for Christmas. Gabi says her purse is falling apart so there is no reason she shouldn't take it now. Dario gives in and gives Gabi the purse. Gabi hugs him and thanks him.
George says if Stefano wanted his family to access his medical records, he would've signed the documents to authorize it. Chad questions him and tells him to stop wasting their time. Rafe and Shawn warn that George could lose his medical license if he is found guilty of fraud. George breaks down and says he had no choice as Stefano forced him to lie on those documents but the policy was still denied so he took the risk for nothing. Chad is not surprised by that and asks him to tell them about Stefano's condition. George reveals that Stefano knew he was terminally ill and didn't have long to live at the time of his murder.
Julie goes in to the attic and turns on the lights. Julie notes that it's freezing in there and then finds the window is open so she shuts it and locks it.

Nicole tells him how everything was perfect between her and Daniel except they couldn't have a baby. Deimos asks if they ever considered adopting. Nicole says they did but no agency would trust her with a baby and no surrogate would carry for a convicted felon. Deimos suggests a friend might. Nicole tells him that Chloe was that friend as she offered to be the surrogate. Nicole talks about Chloe convincing Daniel to go along with it. Nicole explains how their egg was implanted in Chloe but it didn't take. Nicole says they wanted to try again but then Daniel died so they never got another chance. Deimos tells her that he's so sorry. Nicole feels like she keeps getting punished for her stupid past. Nicole cries that having that baby as a part of Daniel would have meant everything to her.

Chad is shocked to learn that Stefano had colon cancer. George explains there was no way to know how much time he had left as it went undetected for too long. He says it hit Stefano hard as there was no way around it. Chad realizes Stefano gave up. George says he was finally out of options. Rafe asks for access to Stefano's medical records which Chad agrees to. George agrees to make arrangements immediately and exits the room.

Dario says he knows where the other one is as the man says he needs all of the special bags. Abigail appears and hides nearby, watching them as the man begins to show Dario what is hidden behind the zipper in the purses.
Deimos tells Nicole that it makes sense she would be thinking of Daniel even more now as it's only been a year since she lost him and they tried so hard to have a child with Chloe but now she's pregnant after a one night stand. Deimos understands it must be confusing for her. Nicole calls it heartbreaking that she and Daniel couldn't make a baby. Nicole says she won't blame Chloe as she did everything she could to help them but it didn't happen. Nicole decides it wasn't meant to be but now Chloe won't talk to her anymore. Deimos asks what if Chloe lied and she is carrying her child.
Hope doesn't understand as she thought Hattie wanted her help with her case. Hattie says she does but she doesn't know if she can take sitting across from Roman. Chili enters and mocks Hope's Christmas ornament then offers her soap. Hattie warns that she better not be setting her up as she knows the soap belongs to Marcella. Chili explains that it's from Marcella as a peace offering. Chili reminds Hope that Deimos is paying her a lot of money to protect her. Hope responds that she didn't ask for his help. Chili says as long as Deimos keeps the money coming, she will make sure everyone treats her right. Chili walks away and Hattie sits back down. Hattie comments on Hope being a celebrity around here while Hope worries that it just puts a bigger target on her back.
Nicole tells Deimos that it's impossible since it was a year ago when Chloe tried to get pregnant so the timing is off. Nicole thanks Deimos for listening to her and being patient with her about all of this. Deimos says what happened between them happened very quickly so he promises to give her as much time to mourn Daniel because he wants her to heal. Nicole tells him that he has helped her heal already. Nicole didn't think she would care about anyone like this again but she does as they then kiss.
Doug comes back in the house as Julie comes downstairs with a bat. Julie tells him there is no sign of anything missing. Doug adds that it's clear outside so they figure the stuffed animal fell out of the window when Julie shut it. Doug suggests it could be the ghost of Christmas past. Julie says it would be a comfort to think that Abigail is still close to them.
Abigail continues to watch as she hides while Dario talks with the man on the docks. The man pulls out a microchip from the purse and warns Dario that he needs the other purse or the project is done. Dario assures that he's on it as the man walks away. Dario goes to leave when Abigail bumps into some boxes causing a noise. Dario hears it and goes to investigate. Dario is shocked when he sees that it's Abigail.
Deimos and Nicole kiss until Deimos gets a phone call. Deimos says he has to take it so Nicole decides to go take a shower. Deimos then answers the call and asks if they got him. A man in a hotel room responds that he's tied up and waiting for him. Deimos tells him to do as they discussed as he's on his way. The man pulls out a needle as he is revealed to have Philip tied up and gagged in a chair. He then injects Philip with the needle.
Gabi finds Chad outside of the town square and asks if he's okay. Chad responds that he's had better days. Gabi asks what's going on. Chad reveals that he just found out that Stefano was terminally ill when Hope murdered him and he knew it. Chad says Stefano figured he would die at the hands of one of his enemies. Chad remarks that he was not the man he thought he was. Gabi holds his hand to comfort him.
Rafe visits Hope at the prison and tells her they are lucky that Chad came through for them. Hope says it makes perfect sense why Stefano was so cocky and sure of himself to make her pull the trigger. Rafe calls it great news and tells her that Justin feels it will really help her appeal. Rafe declares he will be damned if he will let Stefano win.
Dario can't believe Abigail is alive and asks how it's possible. Abigail says it's complicated. Dario asks if Chad knows. Abigail responds that he can't know. Dario questions what she means. Dario says he's going to call Chad to tell him she came back but Abigail stops him and warns that if he tells Chad then she will tell everyone what she just saw. Abigail says she doesn't know exactly what she saw but it looked illegal and asks if he wants her to do that.
