Dario knows it’s tough but also knows Sonny is innocent. He suggests JJ did it. Gabi is affronted, making her brother ask if she still has a thing for him. Gabi sighs. They’re over. That’s not what Dario heard so Gabi explains they shared a dance when they were high on Halo. Rafe arrives. He tells them they found a lead on a suspect but it didn’t pan out.

Kate is thrown to find Andre babysitting Thomas in the great room at the DiMera mansion. He tells her the nanny had an emergency and then bitches about somebody hacking into DiMera and stealing from them. Kate reveals that Chad knows who the culprit is. Kate takes over feeding the kid as Andre raises his voice, telling Kate, “Spit it out, woman!” Kate doesn’t like his disrespect and tells him so, flinging some baby food in his face for good measure. Andre looks aghast but when he tastes it, he says it’s good. He asks if she wants a taste. He grabs the bowl and stirs the applesauce with glee. “Do you know how much this outfit cost?” Kate asks. He doesn’t care. He flings it at her blouse, giggling. Abigail walks in and they try not to laugh upon seeing how unimpressed Abby is with them having a food fight with her kid’s food. Kate takes the baby away and Andre apologizes. Abby says she’s not there to police their babysitting. She needs help and thinks Chad killed Deimos – according to Dario. Andre finds both that thought and Dario ridiculous. “He has proof enough to send him to prison for the rest of his life,” Abs says. Kate walks in and shouts, “No!”
