In the square, Madison interviews Abby. Madison is concerned that she's over-extended herself already with her other jobs but Abby makes a good case about being a natural born multi-tasker. She's hired. Nearby, Bo and Hope tell Stefano they set him up. They know he holds the second key to the safe deposit box he shares with Alice. What's he and Alice hiding? Stefano sighs, admits he shares the box with Alice. He invites them to take a look at what's inside after he sees Hope's key. They leave. Brady finds Madison, who tells him she hasn't made a decision on the CEO job at Titan. She confesses Sami's a mole and brushes it off. All is fair in love and lipstick, Madison claims.

Nearby, Quinn bumps into Abby, and she tells him about her intern news. He brings up her and Melanie's troubles. Brady and Madison walk by and Madison admits she wants Abby to become a model for MW. Brady suggests she ask Quinn too but Madison has other plans for Mr. Hudson.


Chad shows up at Countess Wilhelmina and Abby gushes that Kate has offered them both jobs as the new faces of CW. Chad has no interest and wonders what's in it for Kate. Kate informs Gabi that Chad believes in DiMera conspiracy theories. Kate's simply doing this for her business. Chad's sarcastic and refuses the job. Kate will have to find a new couple, causing Chad to feel guilty and pressured. Kate leaves the room and Chad calls Gabi gorgeous, though she doesn't feel that way since she seemed to turn Will's stomach. Chad assures her again that she's beautiful and decides to take the job, knowing how much it'll mean to her.


Sonny and Will meet with two marketing guys, Kareem and Dustin, who are working on the promotional campaign for the new coffee house. They started the new campaign for "Unicorn Highway" and it's doing so well they've had to turn guys away. Will seems surprised that Salem has a gay bar. He smirks and Sonny grins knowingly. Sonny has a thing for Dustin so Will promises to put in a good word. Later, they all go around the table discussing how they came out. Dustin asks how Will came out to his parents and Will laughs nervously. Sonny saves Will by making a joke about wanting the conversation to revolve around him and the guys take off to leave. Will acts like it's no big deal that the guys thought he was gay.

Hope paces and worries at the bank. It would have been Gran's birthday. Before they open the box, Stefano asks if Hope's sure she wants to know this secret that Alice went through a lot of trouble to keep. Bo can see Hope's not ready, so they decide not to open it.
