Gwen continued opening up to Kristen while they were alone together at the DiMera mansion. "Matty may be a world-class dissembler, but those lustful looks that he's been giving my husband -- I'd have to be bloody braindead not to have noticed," Gwen explained, prompting Kristen to interrupt with a laugh of approval.

Kristen praised Gwen for being the superior dissembler in the love triangle and for having been playing the other two right from the start. "Actually, no -- I admit that, yes, in the beginning, I was a bit of a na´ve fool, so when Dimitri proposed to me and I agreed to be his wife, I thought, 'Wow, your luck has really turned around; you're about to marry the man of your dreams!'" Gwen clarified, drawing a nod of sympathy from Kristen.

Kristen begged to know when Gwen's take on the matter had changed. "When Leo turned up to my honeymoon with that flimsy, ridiculous excuse about being there for a Madonna concert -- that's when my antenna went up," Gwen answered. "The more I thought about it, the crazier it seemed...but, I mean, I had no proof that anything was actually going on -- well, that is, until the very next day, when Leo came into my room so torn up over Victor's death," Gwen continued. "I popped out to get him a nice little Icelandic treat -- and then, when I came back --" Gwen continued before providing a graphic description of the moment that Dimitri had been caught performing a sexual act on Leo.

Gwen finished the response with a summary of all the weird things Leo and Dimitri had done in recent weeks that had suddenly made sense after their secret had been discovered -- and the conversation Dimitri had been caught having with Kristen that had revealed the financial motive for a loveless marriage. "He told me that he was sleeping with Leo only to keep him quiet," Kristen stressed. "So, you're telling me that he doesn't have feelings for Matty -- that he was just sleeping with him out of desperation?" Gwen translated with a hint of hopefulness. "No, that's what I thought...but Dimitri just told me that wasn't the case -- that what he and Leo have is the real thing," Kristen clarified.

Gwen wanted to confront Dimitri and Leo, but Kristen was quick to object. "I think that you and I should turn the tables around on them," Kristen advised -- and Gwen agreed with a wicked grin.

Leo continued lashing out at Dimitri while they were alone together at the Salem Inn. "The only physical intimacy that Gwen and I have shared in the last 24 hours is when she handed me the TV remote last night and my hand grazed hers for a second," Dimitri interjected after figuring out why Leo was upset.

Leo softened a bit in response to Dimitri's clarification. "But even if nothing happened between you and Gwen last night, you can't say that the two of you never --" Leo grumbled. "I am sleeping with Gwen out of obligation -- but I am sleeping with you because...I love you," Dimitri whispered. "I love you, too!" Leo stressed after recovering from the shock of Dimitri's confession.

Dimitri and Leo celebrated their milestone with a kiss. "Now that that's settled -- what did you mean before, when you said we've got trouble?" Leo prodded Dimitri afterward. "Brace yourself --" Dimitri responded. "She's carrying your child, isn't she? The two of you are gonna be bound together forever!" Leo assumed.

Dimitri laughed off Leo's concern then revealed that Stefan and Gabi were onto them. "What are we gonna do?" Leo fretted. "Kill them," Dimitri muttered. "You can't be serious," Leo objected. "I nearly took out half of Salem with a peacock," Dimitri bragged. "During your 'world domination' era! You've moved on to your 'gentleman of leisure, afternoon sex, and reality TV' era!" Leo countered.

Dimitri remained determined to kill Gabi and Stefan but insisted that Leo didn't need to be involved.

Stefan and Gabi sent a text message to Dimitri after deciding not to push their luck with a demand for shares and money.

Shane entered a hotel in Athens then headed up to Alex's room with a metal briefcase -- and released a laugh of confusion when Theresa opened the door. "What are you doing here?" Shane wondered.

Theresa gave Shane a hug and noted that it had been "forever" since they had last seen each other. "You didn't answer my question -- but it doesn't take an experienced ISA agent to figure out what a father would instinctively know," Shane responded.

Shane accused Theresa of having chased Brady all the way to Greece in the hope of rekindling their romance. "Okay, fine, I followed him -- but that's because I'm helping him and Alex with their investigation," Theresa bragged, amusing Shane.

Shane's reaction offended Theresa. "You don't think I can!" Theresa grumbled. "Oh, I know you can -- but apparently, they don't want your help, or else you'd be out 'investigating' with them," Shane countered.

Shane declared Theresa a brilliant young woman with a good heart who deserved a man who appreciated those qualities. "Oh, I've had other boyfriends -- but I just can't help comparing them to Brady, and none of them measure up," Theresa admitted.

Theresa confided in Shane about having devised a plan to use Alex to make Brady jealous. "How far are you planning to take this deception?" Shane wondered. "I don't know," Theresa responded.

Theresa soon changed the subject, vowing to buy Shane a more fashionable briefcase as soon as possible. "This isn't mine -- it's Victor's. They recovered it from the wreckage, and they established it was in no way related to the crash and that it just contains his personal effects -- some papers of a personal nature, legal documents, that sort of thing. I thought maybe Alex and Brady would like to take it home to Maggie," Shane clarified. "I'll make sure they get it," Theresa promised.

Brady and Alex waited at Konstantin's taverna while the owner was helping some patrons. "My apologies --" Konstantin began afterward. "Oh, no, please -- you have a business to run," Brady responded, drawing a nod of agreement from Alex.

Konstantin told Alex and Brady about Victor's recent visit. "I did not plan to meet with Victor -- he just appeared, and I could tell something was very wrong," Konstantin began. "We are old friends -- I've known Victor for a long time -- so I could tell something else was on his mind, something other than his ailing son," Konstantin continued. "When I asked him about it, he got very quiet," Konstantin continued. "He didn't say anything to me about a will...but he did mention a letter," Konstantin continued. "Only that it was of great importance to him. Then we shared a toast of ouzo, and he left," Konstantin concluded.

Brady reminded Alex that Kayla and Steve had found some letters at Victor's childhood home while being held captive there, prompting Konstantin to lead the way -- but no letters were found at that location.

Theresa said goodbye to Shane at the hotel then forced open the briefcase -- and flashed a mischievous grin while inspecting the stack of letters that had been tucked inside.
