In Sarah and Xander's room at the Kiriakis mansion, Xander was confident that he could get Ava to incriminate Gwen, since Ava had previously turned on Gwen in exchange for immunity. Sarah reminded Xander that Leo had also been at Statesville to visit Gwen after Abigail had been murdered. Xander doubted that Leo was truly capable of murder, but he said that Gwen was capable of anything.

Sarah and Xander temporarily put aside their plans for Ava and Gwen, and the two pulled each other into a warm embrace. Sarah and Xander started to kiss, and the two made love. Afterwards, Xander brought Sarah dessert in bed, but they quickly became distracted with each other and made love again. "I think the last time I was this happy was the night before our wedding," Sarah said afterwards.

At the DiMera mansion, E.J. walked in on Ava and Gwen in a private moment. E.J. invited Gwen to stay for dinner, and to Ava's chagrin, Gwen accepted the offer. E.J. said he hoped that he and Gwen would become better acquainted. "Perhaps we'll even get around to discussing that secret that Ava seems to be keeping for you," E.J. remarked.

Later, E.J. raised a toast to family and to new friends. E.J. couldn't wait to hear more about Ava and Gwen's secret, and he added that he couldn't help but wonder if the secret had anything to do with Abigail's murder. E.J. recalled that Gwen, as Jack's long-lost daughter, had arrived in Salem to seek revenge. Gwen claimed that her anger was in the past and that she'd made peace with Abigail before Abigail's death. Ava was nervous, and E.J. remarked that the two still hadn't told him their secret.

Ava said the secret was that Gwen still wanted Xander all to herself. E.J. saw through the lie, and he said that someone other than Lucas and Sarah had killed Abigail. Before he left the room to check on dinner, E.J. heavily implied that both Gwen and Ava knew who Abigail's killer was.

At the Brady Pub, Clyde told Nancy that she had been as good a friend as he had ever had. Clyde seemed to genuinely care about Nancy, who expressed her belief that the man who'd sold Clyde the bracelet that had belonged to Abigail had to be the same person who'd killed Abigail. Clyde wished that he had given the police a better description of "the little weasel" who'd sold him the jewelry. Nancy wanted Clyde to spend an evening together with her, Chloe, and Brady. Clyde doubted that either Chloe or Brady would accept him as a part of Nancy's life. Still, Nancy persisted, and Clyde left the pub to change clothes.

At Basic Black, Leo stunned Chloe and Brady when he appeared unexpectedly and announced that he was there to "save" Basic Black. Leo said that he was interested in becoming a brand specialist for the company, and he had with him a lookbook of his designs and photos. Chloe and Brady weren't interested in Leo's ideas. Leo said he would start his own fashion company to "bury" Basic Black.

After Leo left, Chloe looked at Leo's designs, and she admitted that many of them were good. Nancy entered, and she asked why Chloe had been looking at photos of Leo. Chloe and Brady assured Nancy that they'd all but thrown Leo out of the office with their own bare hands.

Nancy formally invited Chloe and Brady to join her and Clyde for dinner. Nancy pleaded with them to give Clyde a chance to prove his love for her. To Nancy's delight, a reluctant Chloe nervously agreed to the dinner. After Chloe agreed, Brady said he would attend the dinner, as well.

At the bar in Horton Town Square, Leo was rattled when he was approached by an angry Clyde, who said that he'd been searching for Leo. Clyde forcibly grabbed Leo by the arm. "They had me in for the murder of Abigail DiMera. Lucky for me, I had an alibi. But I get the feeling you're not gonna be half as lucky as I was," Clyde said sternly.

Clyde planned to phone the police, but Leo caught Clyde off guard when he threw his drink in Clyde's face. Leo ran out of the bar while Clyde was temporarily blinded by the liquor. Just then, Nancy, Chloe, and Brady arrived. Clyde told the three that he'd just encountered the man who'd sold him Abigail's bracelet.

At Jack and Jennifer's place, Thomas ran upstairs when Chad returned home. Jennifer asked what had happened, and Chad recalled that he'd lost his temper with Thomas the previous day. Jennifer said that she, Jack, and Thomas had all been worried when Chad hadn't returned home the previous night.

Chad felt awful for what he'd put Thomas through. Jennifer brought Thomas downstairs. Chad apologized to Thomas for having lost his temper and for having not returned home the previous night. Chad recalled that Abigail had always found ways to cheer everyone up, and he said that he wanted to be able to do the same thing for Thomas and Charlotte. Chad invited Jennifer to join him and Thomas for frozen yogurt, but Jennifer encouraged Chad and Thomas to have their own "boys' night."

Later, in Horton Town Square, Chad and Thomas ate frozen yogurt. Thomas lost a tooth that had been loose, and he asked Chad to help arrange a visit from the Tooth Fairy -- the way Abigail had once done. Chad was taken aback when Thomas said that he'd seen the Tooth Fairy in the basement of the DiMera mansion.

Thomas added that he'd told Abigail that he'd seen the Tooth Fairy in the basement. "If you don't believe me, ask him yourself! There he is!" Thomas said excitedly.

Chad turned and saw Leo, who'd just rushed out of the bar.
