Now without further ado ...


Sonny joins JJ, who is sitting and sulking at Horton house alone. Sonny smiles he wants to hug Abigail as he has heard the good news of her being alive. JJ replies she is at DiMera mansion. Sonny assumes Chad is over the moon but JJ acts like he has serious doubts ... Chad sits at Andre's pub booth. Andre proposes a champagne toast. Chad has other matters on his mind and threatens to murder him for his dastardly deception ... At the park, Gabi assists Abigail, who is having an extreme panic attack. She tells her to breathe and assures her friend she is here for her. Abigail does not allow her to call Chad, however. She does not want any more help. Gabi reminds her that Chad does not want any more secrets. She now starts to worry that anxious Abigail will attempt to flee again. Abigail insists she is stronger than she thinks. Gabi asks about the panic attack trigger tonight. As it turns out it happened due to stress after Chad admitted he might not be able to easily forgive her ... Sonny calls JJ out on his pity party and laughs they can be losers in love together. JJ tells him about Chad moving on. Sonny states that almost couple scenario was not serious. JJ gets irate that even Sonny could see how Chad was after his girlfriend ... Andre is a tad disappointed that Abigail betrayed his involvement to his brotha and patiently points out he merely wanted to help the troubled soul in her time of need. Chad accuses him of having ulterior motives. He does not believe this kinder gentler Andre. Andre airily suggests they stick together especially since fatha might be alive. Then the conversation takes on a whole new level of crazy. At least for a few seconds ...

Back at Horton house, Sonny the positive person seems upbeat even about being depressed ... At the club, Kate is speaking to her second source on the phone as Ed waits for her.

Gabi tells her about the job offer, how they spent time together. He was devastated over losing Abigail, who was presumed dead. Abigail hears she helped him start to live a little. Gabi gushes he helped her as well since Arianna loves being with Thomas. Abigail finds out Gabi's feelings for him came about due to all the attention he gave her and how he listened when JJ let her down again. Abigail suspects she is in love with Chad ... Andre murmurs the ISA and Shane Donavan do believe that fatha is alive somewhere in eastern Europe. Chad assumes Andre was involved. No but the Bradys and Rafe dug up the grave, which did NOT contain Stefano. Chad soap stares ...

Kate blows off her date with Ed and alludes to a business drama she must deal with. He grimaces as she kisses him on the cheek and goes on her way ... Paul explains he is working tonight on the phone as he has a target to monitor. Derek deduces he has been in contact with Sonny and gets jealous. Paul apologizes and asks for a restart.

JJ tells him the whole sordid story of lying and cheating in Miami. Sonny has some intel to share - Gabi said she is going to be at the club by midnight. They are on their way ... Chad scoffs who besides Stefano was in that grave. Andre admits he has no idea. Chad thinks he is lying again. Andre sarcastically notes fatha certainly did not need him to rise from ashes. He now advises Chad to reunite with Abigail. He would be wise to do so especially if Stefano is alive ... Abigail finds out Gabi and Chad never went all the way and seems relieved. Gabi finds out she saw them kissing. Abigail still believes that she and Chad were meant to be. It was fate that make him find her again! Gabi urges her to tell him about the panic attacks. Abigail disagrees. She is going to get him back and wants to know if her former bff will stand between them. Gabi soap stares as she awaits her reply ...

He also wants the familia to be successful and wants Ari to know she is special and so loved. Arianna appreciates her grandfather but he still looks rather glum about Kate breaking their date ... Gabi sighs she and Chad were nothing compared to what Abigail and Chad have. Abigail suggests she find it in her heart to forgive JJ. All of a sudden Gabi's phone starts to ring. Tis Chad and Abigail tells her to take his call ...

Kate would rather not go near Ed anymore. Andre dangerously replies they need those billions so she should use her charms to get the microchips from Eduardo. If not then he shall do far worse.
