JJ looks glum as he remembers Gabi, now the one that got away ... Gabi gasps that Chad is ... Dario does the romantic math and enlightens his smitten sister. Abigail remained in hiding as she was afraid of how Chad would react about her faking her death. Gabi is harsh toward her but Dario insists she is here to stay so what now ...

Adrienne laments she does not want to be pressured now. Lucas will do whatever she wants. Justin waits for her to make up her mind ... Gabi gets agitated when Dario asks if she is after Chad. When she replies with a resounding no her brother breathes a sigh of relief. He lists her lousy track record with lovers.

She may want him but does he want her back? Back at DiMera mansion Abigail admits she was just trying to have a happy moment and apologizes for forcing things. However, they have to get back to normal and what better time to enjoy each other than on the New Year. She suggests they have party hats and more delivered. It is not too late.

Abigail admits she did and she lied to herself but promises to be honest with him right here right now ...

The guys decide to have coffee and a candid conversation ... Gabi sits sadly alone at the square. JJ approaches and gently tells her they should talk. He explains Chad and Abigail are going to work things out. She snaps so why tell her about it! He advises her to let go of any feelings she harbors for Chad ... Abigail assumes Chad is feeling a tad trapped. He denies it but exclaims he is overwhelmed. Who knows how and when he will ever overcome his anger at her! Everyone lied to him and he is a DiMera so he does not take well to deceit. Abigail weepily replies she will wait as long as it takes for him to trust her again. She wonders whether this is really about Gabi. Chad's blue eyes blink back his own tears of torment.

Kate keeps chemo Adrienne company and they laugh at the old magazines. Adrienne mentions Angelina's story. She admits it is hard to always act happy. Kate says she need not be a poster child.

She explains she just wants him to put in a good word for her. It would mean much. Lucas will think it over. She gushes and blushes in gratitude ...

Chad tells Jen how he feels and she tells him how Abigail feels. She notes Ben made her daughter emotionally raw. She was right to play things Abigail's way lest she feel overwhelmed and flee again. Chad points out if he makes a promise he cannot keep it might make Abigail lose it again, hence his hesitation. Meanwhile Abigail walks past her angel statue at the park and proceeds to have a panic attack. She can barely breathe ... Ed is enjoying a drink at the club with Kate when she gets a work call. She discovers Andre's microchips were stolen by Eduardo and observes him with her cat eyes ... Jen emotionally exclaims Abigail does love Chad!
