At the DiMera mansion, Chad reads the interview Leo gave about them ending up in bed together, Chad showing up drunk on his hotel doorstep, and Abigail admitting that Chad is obsessed with him. Chad snarks at Sonny for encouraging them to do all that and then pulls out his phone to call his lawyer. Sonny points out he can’t sue Leo because everything he said is technically true. Chad suggests he give his own interview, but Sonny thinks it would only add fuel to the fire. Chad thinks it’s easy for Sonny to say, considering he wasn’t mentioned in the article. Chad narrows his eyes wondering why that is. Is Leo right about Sonny wanting him? Sonny insists he’s not, but he has a sickening feeling Leo is going after all of them.

Nancy bumps into Clyde in the Square. She tries to stalk off, but Clyde stops her. He explains he stood her up because Ben and Ciara were kidnapped by the devil. Nancy chuckles. Clyde insists it’s the truth and shows her an article about it on his phone. She hugs him, assuming he must be worried sick about Ciara. Clyde appreciates that. Since the cops are looking for his daughter-in-law and Ben would rather be alone right now, he asks her to lunch at the Pub.
As they head out, they run into Chloe and Brady. Chloe asks, “What the hell are you doing with this guy?” Nancy responds that they’re about to go on their first date. Chloe says, “Over my dead body.” Nancy assures Chloe she knows all about Clyde’s past, but men can change. Nancy and Clyde leave for lunch. Chloe can’t believe she has to go through this with her mother now. Brady assures her he’ll be there for her.

When Chloe comes to Craig’s room he tells her he resigned from the hospital and is moving back to New York. He’s sorry for how much he hurt her and her mother. She tears up. She hopes that he meets a man worthy of him. They hug as Craig declares that no man has had a better daughter.
