Abigail is struggling at Shady Hills, now realizing – despite her memory lapse – that it’s possible she’s the one who set the near-deadly fire. JJ tries to console her but she fears the worst. She just wants to go home. JJ, his heart breaking, has to tell her they might send her to another facility… with more security. Also, Marlena visits Abigail and tries to calm her. Meanwhile, Chad goes home to change, only to find Jennifer waiting for him: she wants to know if he meant what he said the previous night about getting Abigail out of Shady Hills, implying he might break her out. Chad explains he was only blowing off steam, reassures Jennifer he won’t try anything, but later, Chad privately makes plans to do just that. Hope has a disturbing dream about marrying Aiden, but upon waking she immediately dismisses it. She receives an elaborate floral arrangement from him. After speaking with Roman, Hope asks Aiden to join her on a trip to Green Mountain Lodge. Meanwhile, Rafe has another moment with Blanca, then leaves for work but not before giving Adriana the cold shoulder. Blanca isn’t happy Adriana brought her to Salem only to be with Rafe. At the station, Rafe finds Hope, who tells him about her vacation plans with Aiden, and Rafe does his best to cover his hurt as Hope carries her own regrets. Later, Aiden tells an impatient Andre that his wait is over. Things are in motion. At that moment, back at the police station, a man (Monahan) enters to Rafe and Roman, and says he wants to confess… to murder. He’s the man who killed Stefano DiMera. Aiden takes Chase to Shady Hills, meets with Dr. Robinson, and has him admitted. He labors to convince his son that this is far better than being in jail. Aiden hopes Chase will be able to work past what he did to Ciara. Chase agrees to try. Meanwhile, Ciara speaks with Marlena about going into mental health as a profession. Marlena offers to help her get an internship at Shady Hills, and sets up an interview. Ciara tells Chad, who is happy to learn Abigail will have an ally watching over her. Later, Ciara goes there, just missing Chase, and has an interview. After she’s granted the position, an excited Ciara finally ends up locking eyes with Chase.
