Chad manages to set up a meeting at the mansion with Deimos' artifacts dealer. He invites him to be DiMera's exclusive dealer.

Chad lies he loves art but he tells the truth about planning to protect and then return the pieces to the nations from whence they were stolen.

Jade cries he is to blame for being a mean drunk all those years. She warns him not to hurt this family who has been so good to her. She continues and he starts to put down the needle. Steve grabs him and a cop cuffs him. Steve finally hugs sweetness in relief ... Sonny and Paul have been reading Deimos' boring emails. Fearless Sonny feels it would be easier to get Deimos the old school way. Paul warns him it would be unsafe. Sonny does not seem to mind ... The Bulgarian believes Deimos would retaliate against him if he resigned. One cannot quit the mob after all.
