Abigail and Chad wake up at the DiMera mansion. Abby mumbles that she didn’t have any bad dreams last night. They kiss and snuggle and then Chad wants to shower together but Abs has to find something new to wear for her meeting today. Chad reminds her she has the new samples from Gabi Chic. Abigail’s confused. Down in the lounge, Stefan tells someone on a call to “get it done soon.” He disconnects when Kate walks in. She assumes he was scheming and accuses him of murdering Andre and covering it up with his mother. He thinks Kate could have done it. Chad appears and Stefan asks for Kate’s alibi the night Andre was murdered. She stares at him, smugly and Chad says the real killer will be brought to justice soon. Abigail walks in and is disturbed to hear that Stefan is pinning the murder on everyone else. Stefan and Kate leave the room and Abigail questions Chad about the new Gabi Chic samples. He reminds her of the conversation but she’s still puzzled. They high five and Chad goes, while Abby tries to remember. She has a headache and then becomes Gabigail. She saunters to the wardrobe and later visits Stefan in his room in a sexy red dress.
