She still has misgivings about Abigail and warns her son not to let Abby's darkness envelope him. Cam thinks he can protect her. Inside, Abe mutters about the flowers he and Lexi grew in the garden and how brave she was. They're surprised to learn Lexi was exposed to a toxic gas in the tunnels that caused her tumor.

Everyone takes off and Theo asks, "Daddy, what do we do now?" They look at photos of Lexi together and flashback to better times.
Abigail watches Chad sniffling at the square. He tells her about the argument with Melanie and that she left. What does he do? Abby's just as baffled as he is. It's not like Melanie. Chad says he was angry that he didn't let his father into his life sooner and took it out on Mel. He's considering going to Europe to apologize in person. Gabi walks up and tells him it's a bad idea. She and Abby argue and Abby eventually agrees he should give Melanie time. Chad receives a call from Marlena, telling him Lexi's dead. He holds back the tears and hangs up.

While Gabi heads upstairs at Andrew's place, Melanie escapes the basement and runs right into a masked Andrew, who tells her she's his honored guest. She races up the stairs but he captures her and drags her back to her room. He refuses to tell her what his motivation is but after that stunt, he may keep her there for the rest of her life. If she's good, he'll be good but if she's bad, he says, "I'm really good at being bad if you know what I mean?" She plays it cool and warns him that her boyfriend's a DiMera and her grandmother's married to a Kiriakis. If both families come after him, he's a dead man. Andrew had no idea. He fixes the lock and tells her he sent an email with a cover story. He'll keep up the charade for her. He leaves and tosses her cell in a nearby bin.
John and Marlena wind up outside the pub. Marlena takes a call and John heads in. Will tells Sonny his mother was really there for him today. It's something he hasn't felt in a long time. Lucas has been cool since the day he found out he was gay. John says, "Your old man's not the only one." John hugs him. He's proud of Will for owning his own truth. Will's overcome with emotion and gives Sonny and Marlena credit. He hugs his grandmother. "I wouldn't be me without you."
