She received those shares from him and they are all she has left of their love. Chad asks about the phoenix ring he also left her. Kate is not sure where it is now but that belonged to Stefano whereas these stocks were Andre. Chad notes that sounds as nutty as Anna running around with Tony’s ashes but they were soulmates whereas Andre betrayed Kate … Kristen smiles Stefano was here in this room standing where Steve is now but he just missed him. She has decided she will not do as he asked and let Chad have her stocks for she is unsure she can trust him. Stefano looks ready to explode …
