At the police station, Rafe and Hope strategized a bluff to get information out of the security chief of the hotel in Hong Kong. Shawn met with the security chief in Hong Kong and pretended that Chad had been wearing a wire. In Salem, Hope and Rafe waited patiently to hear from Shawn. With a smirk, Rafe told Hope that they still made a great team. Hope warned Rafe not to say any more about their relationship.
"I am working with you for Gabi's sake," Hope said. "And maybe you still love me a little," Rafe suggested hopefully. Hope said she still wanted Rafe to sign the annulment papers. Rafe refused. Shawn called Hope's phone and told her that the bluff had worked and that he had obtained the missing security footage from Hong Kong. Rafe grabbed his laptop. When Hope and Rafe reviewed the footage on the computer, they remarked on how the dark-haired woman in the video looked like the one from the footage at the murder scene.
"You said you never saw Abigail the whole time you were in Hong Kong?" Rafe asked. Hope nodded yes. Rafe reminded Hope that Abigail had been in the room adjoining Stefan's. As Hope asked Rafe what he was talking about, Rafe suggested that the dark-haired woman might be Abigail. Hope did not think Rafe's hypothesis made sense. Rafe theorized aloud that Abigail might not have known what she had been doing. "This would take it all the way back to the night Andre was murdered. You think?" Hope asked. Rafe and Hope continued to the review the footage and finally found a shot of the dark-haired woman. It was Abigail.
In the DiMera living room, Vivian threatened to tell the world about Abigail's illness if Stefan left town with Gabby. With a nod, Stefan said, "My love for Gabby has changed me. I'm sorry." Stefan lifted Vivian over his shoulder, and he carried her into the tunnels. Vivian kicked her legs and cried out for help.
In her room in the tunnels, Marlena paced nervously. Stefan walked in with Vivian and set her on the floor. Vivian begged Stefan not to leave her with Marlena, but Stefan apologized as he closed the door in his mother's face. Vivian banged on the door, begging to be let loose. Through the door, Stefan yelled that Vivian would only be in the room temporarily. Vivian complained to Marlena that Abigail's alter had been trouble from the start. Alarmed, Marlena yelled at Vivian for not seeking help for Abigail sooner.
At the pub, John called around asking people if they had seen Marlena. When Paul arrived, he updated John on Kate's case. Paul said Kate was not answering calls or texts. John countered that Marlena was also missing and had been since her appointment with Abigail.
"There was something about Abigail that just didn't seem right," John said. John said it was weird that Abigail had been so pleased about Gabi's conviction for murder. Paul said he had heard from multiple people that Abigail had not been acting like herself. Paul suggested that Abigail might know where to find Marlena.
At the prison, Gabi asked Chad if Abigail had confessed to being "a lying bitch." Chad warned Gabi not to speak ill of his wife. Gabi growled that she was angry that Abigail had betrayed her. Chad reminded Gabi that there could be extenuating factors. With a nod, Gabi said that if there were extenuating factors, it would mean that Abigail was crazy. Chad said he had talked to Abigail, who had made an appointment with Marlena.
Chad argued that the situation was not Abigail's fault, but Gabi disagreed. Gabi reminded Chad that she was in prison because of Abigail's testimony. After tensions eased, Chad told Gabi that there was no new information on the case. Gabi said she was hopeful that Rafe and Hope would prove her innocence and find their way back to each other in the process.
With a sigh, Gabi apologized for ranting about Abigail. Chad shook his head and told Gabi not to worry about it. Chad asked Gabi how she had been faring in prison. Gabi said she had not been able to sleep. When Gabi said she had been thinking about never seeing her daughter grow up, Chad cautioned Gabi not to think about that. Chad's phone beeped. Chad listened to the panicked voicemail from Kate saying that the dark-haired woman was in Stefan's bedroom. With a grin, Chad told Gabi the good news. Chad said he hoped he would be able to prove Gabi's innocence soon.
In Abigail's head, she banged on the door of the office in which she was trapped. Abigail heard Kate's voice through the telephone on the desk. Abigail grabbed the receiver and yelled pleadingly for Kate's help. Abigail looked around the office for a key to unlock the door to the office. When Abigail opened the drawer of the desk, she found a photo of her with Chad and Thomas. Confused, Abigail wondered aloud, "If I'm not in Marlena's office, where am I?"
In the DiMera mansion, Gabby opened the door to Stefan's bedroom and found Kate. Kate was surprised to see Abigail in a dark wig, but she stammered out a hello. Kate asked "Abigail" why she was dressed strangely. With a tight smile, Gabby said she had an explanation. Kate noted that Abigail looked like the dark-haired woman from the security footage. With a gasp, Kate said, "It was you. It's been you all along."
"It's not what you think. You've got to believe me. Chad was right. Stefan tried to brainwash me," Gabby said in her best Abigail impression. Gabby asked Kate for help. Kate promised to help Abigail. As Kate walked past Gabby, Gabby's crying face disappeared into a scowl. Gabby grabbed a candlestick and knocked Kate unconscious. In Abigail's mind, the phone went dead.
Stefan returned to the bedroom. "Are you kidding me?" Stefan said incredulously when he saw Kate lying on the floor. "Why doesn't anybody mind their own business?" Gabby groused. Gabby said she had acted quickly, so Kate knew very little. Stefan escorted Kate down to the tunnels and locked her in the room with Marlena and Vivian. Vivian shrieked at the sight of Kate. Marlena examined the lump on Kate's head.
Confused, Kate asked what was going on. Marlena and Vivian explained that Abigail had an alternate personality. Marlena updated Kate on all she knew about Abigail's condition. Kate asked why Vivian was in the room. Vivian yelled that Stefan was in love with Gabby, and they had planned to run away together. Kate said she had confronted Abigail upstairs because she had believed that she was the dark-haired woman in the security footage. Kate added that she had left a voicemail for Chad.
"Hopefully he will discover the truth and rescue us," Kate said. Shaking her head, Kate said she had hoped that Abigail had gotten past her struggles with mental illness. Kate blamed Vivian because her return had stressed out Abigail. Vivian said she would not rat out her son.
With a shrug, Marlena said that Stefan had confessed to her that he had murdered Andre. "Wrong!" Vivian said. Vivian said that Stefan was protecting Gabby. Marlena asked if Gabby had killed Andre. Shaking her head no, Vivian confirmed that Abigail had killed Andre.
Outside the room in the tunnels, Stefan told Gabby that Vivian would never forgive him for locking her in a room with Kate and Marlena. Stefan warned Gabby that they needed to leave town immediately. Gabby kissed Stefan. The two headed upstairs and packed, and Stefan called his pilot to prepare the jet. Gabby asked Stefan if he was sure that he wanted to leave town with her. Stefan nodded yes.
"Do you really want to give all this up to run away with me?" Gabby asked. "There is nothing I would rather be than the man you love. I would give all this up to be with you for the rest of my life," Stefan said. Gabby grabbed Stefan and kissed him. In Abigail's head, she called out for Chad as she stood in the middle of the locked office. Abigail heard a noise, turned, and found Stefan standing in the office with her. Stefan grabbed Abigail and kissed her. Abigail struggled to break free. In Stefan's bedroom, Abigail shoved Stefan away.
"Abigail?" Stefan asked tentatively. Freaked out, Abigail asked Stefan why he had been kissing her. Abigail asked about the wig she was wearing. Abigail yelled out that she would not go anywhere with Stefan. Stefan grabbed Abigail by the shoulders and said, "Gabby come back to me!" Abigail asked why he was calling her Gabby. In Abigail's mind, Gabby was the one locked in the office. Gabby heard Stefan's voice from the receiver of the phone on the desk. Gabby grabbed the phone and called out to Stefan. On the phone, Gabby heard Stefan begging for her to return to him.
"Let me go!" Abigail shrieked. "Not until Gabby comes back to me," Stefan said. In Abigail's head, Gabby listened as Stefan asked Gabby to return to him. In the bedroom, Abigail clutched her head and asked Stefan to stop calling her Gabby. "I love you," Stefan kept repeating. Abigail stopped holding her head and turned toward Stefano. "Sam?" Gabby asked. Relieved, Stefan hugged Gabby.
Stefan fetched a glass of water and gave it to Gabby. Gabby was disappointed to learn that Abigail had emerged instead of Dr. Laura. Shaking her head, Gabby said she had felt Abigail fighting all day and that it was futile to run away. Stefan argued that Gabby was stronger than Abigail.
"She wants to be with Chad and Thomas as much as I want to be with you," Gabby confessed. Gabby said they needed to get rid of Abigail, then she kissed Stefan. Stefan was unsure, but Gabby said she needed to show Abigail how strong her love was. Stefan asked if they should wait until they left town, but Gabby wanted to get rid of Abigail before they ran away. "I guess I was just hoping for a little more romance," Stefan said sheepishly. Gabby took off Stefan's jacket. "Stay looking at me, okay? Can you do that?" Stefan asked. "Just don't let go, okay?" Gabby said.
After undressing, Stefan and Gabby climbed into bed. "Stay with me. I love you," Stefan said softly. "I love you," Gabby said. Stefan made love to Gabby. Downstairs, Chad returned home. Upstairs, Gabby and Stefan basked in the afterglow. Gabby said she no longer felt Abigail in her head. "I don't ever want to lose you again," Stefan said. As Gabby and Stefan started to kiss again, Chad burst into the room. Chad yelled at the dark-haired woman to turn around. Gabby turned to face Chad.
