In the bedroom at the Horton house, Chad woke Abigail from a nightmare about Jordan. Chad reminded Abigail that Hope had arrested Jordan and that Charlotte and Abigail were safe. With a sigh of relief, Abigail snuggled up next to Chad. Abigail talked about how happy she was to have her family back together. Chad agreed and said that if they remained honest with one another, no one could tear them apart again.
After Abigail checked on Charlotte and Thomas, she returned to bed. Abigail confirmed that Charlotte was asleep and that Thomas was out with Jennifer at the library. Chad's phone beeped. As a cloud passed over Chad's face, Abigail asked what was wrong. Reluctantly, Chad told Abigail that Stefan had told the board that Stefan had been forced to pass on lucrative deals because Chad had been unavailable to approve the sale. Abigail urged Chad to talk to the board and fight for his company.
"What if I don't want to?" Chad asked. Abigail said she did not want to be the reason that Chad lost his company. "What better reason is there?" Chad asked. Chad reminded Abigail that his family name had been the source of all his problems. "I don't want to waste any more time. I want a new start for us. For you and for me. For our beautiful children," Chad said. Abigail asked Chad what he meant.
"What if we left Salem?" Chad asked. Chad offered to run operations in Paris instead of running the entire company. "This is a lot to think about," Abigail said, surprised. Chad said he understood if Abigail did not want to leave so soon after her father had returned to town. Abigail admitted that it would be difficult to leave her family, but she was tempted by a change of scenery.
"I know what I want, and I know what I need, and yes," Abigail said. Thrilled, Chad kissed Abigail and hollered with joy. Chad called Mr. Shin and secured the position in Paris. With a frown, Chad added that Mr. Shin was concerned about the company and wanted Chad to leave the next day. Chad told Abigail that she could meet up with him in Paris when they were ready.
"If we are going to do this, we have to do this together. We just have to say goodbyes," Abigail said. Chad told Abigail that he refused to leave Salem before he remarried her. Abigail gasped and smiled.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Leo woke up tied to his bed. Gabi sat in the chair next to the bed and typed on her phone. Gabi chatted about the bedding from the Gabi Chic collection she had used to cover Leo's body. "Untie me right now, or I will redecorate your pretty little face!" Leo barked. With a chuckle, Gabi pulled out her nail file and worked on her nails. Gabi reminded Leo that he was in no position to threaten her. With a smile, Gabi reminded Leo that she had knocked him out with one punch.
"Would you mind enlightening me as to why you are holding me hostage?" Leo asked. Gabi explained that Will and Sonny were the fathers to her daughter. Gabi said she was protective of her family. Leo argued that he had tortured Sonny and Will as retribution for their attempted murder. After Leo told Gabi the story of his murder, Gabi shrugged. Gabi said that whatever Will and Sonny had done had likely been justified.
"You are innocent like I am Mother Theresa," Gabi joked. Gabi reminded Leo that he had blackmailed Sonny into a loveless marriage. Gabi called Leo despicable. "Why shouldn't I be compensated for my pain and suffering?" Leo asked. Leo said he still had nightmares about the attempted murder. Gabi argued that Leo had faked a lawsuit. Leo countered that there was no proof that his lawsuit was fake. Angry, Leo added that he had incriminating photos of Sonny and Will. Leo grumbled that he would give the picture to the police if he was pushed to do so. Leo asked when Gabi would let him go.
"That remains to be seen," Gabi said as she walked out of the room. Leo strained against the ropes.
At the Salem Inn, Sonny grinned at Will as he woke up next to him. Sonny admitted that he had been watching Will sleep. "Your bed head is pretty adorable. But not as adorable as your stomach growling," Sonny joked. Sonny offered to get breakfast to bring back to the room. "How could I ever forget how beautiful you are? How beautiful we are. Together," Will said. Will kissed Sonny.
"I forgot how alive being with you makes me feel," Will said. "I think I remember every time we've kissed and every time we've made love," Sonny countered. Will raised a suspicious eyebrow. Sonny said he had been forced to focus on his memories after he had lost Will. "Every time I'm with you, it is like the first time all over again," Sonny said.
"What if it's the last time?" Will asked. "Now we have to wake up from this dream and confront reality," Sonny said plainly. Sonny's phone rang. It was Gabi. Gabi told Sonny that she had tied Leo to a bed. When Gabi mentioned Leo's accusation about the attempted murder, Sonny explained what had actually happened. Sonny added that there was no proof that it had been an accident.
"Leo Stark seems like a man who gets his jollies from making other people miserable, consequences be damned. The question is, how far are you and Will willing to go to stop him?" Gabi asked. After Sonny ended the call, Will asked Sonny if they were worrying too much about Leo.
"What if an opportunist is all he is? If he turns us in, he is going to have to give up his cushy life at the Kiriakis mansion," Will said. Sonny worried aloud that if they paid off Leo, he would keep asking for more. "We got to get rid of him, together, once and for all," Will said. Sonny wanted to handle Leo, but Will refused to let Sonny deal with Leo on his own.
At the café in the square, Marlena noticed that John was distracted. John thought about when Diana had confirmed that Leo was his son. With a sigh, John told Marlena that they needed to talk. Marlena's phone beeped. Marlena told John that the Salem Police Department needed her to evaluate a suspect. John urged Marlena to deal with work and talk later. With a nod, Marlena grabbed her coat and left.
As John started to pay the bill for breakfast, Diana approached. Diana asked John if he had told Marlena the truth about Leo. John said he had not but that he intended to tell Marlena after work. "I really don't think you should do that," Diana said. Diana told John that when Leo was hurt, he hurt other people. John asked Diana what she meant. Diana said Leo could lash out and want to hurt Will and Sonny even more in retaliation if Leo learned the truth about his father.
"It is in everybody's best interest if you just let this go," Diana pleaded. John shook his head no. "The longer we wait, we are just setting ourselves up for more damage," John explained. John said he intended to tell Marlena after she left the police station.
After his chat with Diana, John walked over to the pub. John confided to Roman that Diana had put pressure on him to keep Leo's paternity a secret. John said he was conflicted about whether to tell the truth. Roman suggested that John could talk sense into Leo to avoid any blowback. With a sigh, John said he did not believe he could keep Leo from acting out.
At the police station, Lani asked Eli how he was doing. Eli rubbed his head and marveled that he had let Ben get the drop on him. When Eli mentioned getting his weapon back from Chad, Lani handed Eli an envelope. Lani said the package would not improve Eli's day. Wary, Eli opened the package to discover a 45 RPM of "I'll Wait Forever" by the Mynah Birds. Eli chuckled.
"I know you've been looking for it for a long time," Lani said. Eli asked Lani why the record would make him feel worse. "Because I got you something for Valentine's Day, and you didn't get me anything," Lani teased. Eli said he had wanted to give Lani a gift but had been distracted by work. Lani told Eli that he had a one-time pass "out of the doghouse."
With a grin, Eli pulled an envelope out of his desk drawer. Lani opened the envelope and found tickets to the Chicago Symphony. Lani reminded Eli that he did not like classical music. "I would do anything for my girl," Eli said then kissed Lani.
When Marlena arrived at the station, Eli updated Marlena on the situation with Jordan. Eli directed Marlena to the interrogation room to evaluate Jordan. After Marlena talked to Jordan, she returned to the bullpen and found Diana waiting for her. Diana apologized to Marlena for lying to her. "Skip your apology. I know exactly what you're hiding," Marlena said.
"Please understand the position I found myself in. When I ran into you, I didn't know what you knew. I didn't feel it was my place to tell you," Diana said. Marlena reminded Diana that Diana had sought her out. Diana chuckled nervously. Diana explained that John had told her everything about Marlena. Diana admitted that she had been interested in the woman that John had not been able to forget. Marlena turned to leave.
"Before you go, there is something that you should know," Diana said. Marlena told Diana that John had told her everything about their relationship. Diana said her news was about Leo specifically. When Marlena asked if the news was about Leo and Sonny, Diana shook her head no.
At the pub, Roman asked John if he trusted Diana. With a shrug, John said Diana had been a good-hearted person when he had known her. Roman asked John if Diana was truly worried about Leo or if she was more interested in causing trouble.
When Gabi returned to Leo's room at the mansion, she carried a large pair of scissors. "Oh, God, please no! Not the family jewels, no!" Leo screamed as Gabi clicked the scissors open and closed while she walked slowly toward him. Leo turned his head away. Gabi cut the rope binding Leo's left wrist to the bedpost.
"Next time, I will use these somewhere else," Gabi warned. As Leo sighed with relief, Gabi marched out. Leo scowled as he struggled to free his other wrist.
When Gabi walked into the living room downstairs, she found Will and Sonny had returned from their night out. Gabi said goodbye to Will and Sonny, and she left for home. Will asked Sonny if he was ready to confront Leo. When Leo walked into the living room, Sonny told Leo that their marriage was over. Leo grinned mischievously.
Eli and Lani walked into the mansion. Leo announced that he wanted to report an attempted murder. Leo pulled an envelope out of his back pocket. "I have proof," Leo said as he waved the envelope at the police.
• Eve catches Trask arguing with Haley.
• Stefan realizes that Gabby is gone for good.
• Chad and Abigail get married again then leave Salem.
