At the DiMera mansion, Chad hollers at someone in the phone to find Ben and Abigail and do it today! Chad next complains to Andre about Abigail still being missing. He wishes he could figure out where Ben took her.

At the cabin, Abigail pleads with Ben that she needs a doctor. Ben is on edge and tells Abigail that when the woman gets there to help she must not let on about the situation. Abigail tells him she’s cold. He goes to the car for a blanket. Abigail tries to use her phone, but Ben returns immediately with a woman named Wendy. The woman says Abigail’s blood pressure is high and she is definitely in labor. She announces she’ll call an ambulance. Ben says they want a natural childbirth there. Abigail and Wendy work to convince Ben that the baby will need special care. Ben insists they stay there. When Wendy starts to call an ambulance, Ben holds a gun to her head. “Put the phone down.” Ben tells the frightened women everything will be fine as long as they both do what he tell them to do.

At Steve’s room, Kayla tells him they have to get to the surprise party for Bo. “This was a mistake.”

At home, Ciara works to convince Hope to come to the surprise party. She gives her a locket with Hope and Bo’s wedding photo inside. Hope hugs her.

At Marlena and John’s place, she tells him she’s feeling desperate and would like him to ask the ISA for a favor. John admits he didn’t quit – he was fired. They decide to have a talk with Andre face-to-face. John thinks they should find the pass codes to use as a bargaining chip. They are frustrated with searching when Chad shows up. John leaves for the bank. Chad tells Marlena his fears about Abigail. “I need you to hypnotize me.” He convinces her that something is wrong. Marlena will help him, if he helps her in return. Under hypnosis, Chad describes Ben’s scary eyes as they fought. He leaps from his seat. Marlena yells, “Clear!” She tells him he said Ben would rot in prison for what he did. “What did he do?” Chad grimaces – he can’t remember. Marlena tells Chad she needs his help – she thinks Andre and Stefano kidnapped Sami and wants Chad to go to the mansion and find out if it’s true. He’ll do what he can. John returns. Marlena says Chad will help them. Once alone, John tells Marlena he realized Sami wouldn’t go to the bank in a crisis. Marlena muses that she regresses when she’s in a crisis. She gets a doll. They open the back and find the flashdrive with the pass codes.
