Xander blames the paper-thin wall, but Chloe knows better. She takes over.

Holding a drill, Xander shows off the metal wall anchor to a glaring Chloe.

After Chloe properly hangs Xander’s picture, Xander suggests he finish hanging things while Chloe cleans. She gets defensive about gender roles, but he says she’s a better “cleaner-upper.” Relenting, she agrees to clean since it’s what she initially signed up for. However, she’s rethinking their arrangement since her job prospects are grim. Xander changes her mind about moving out with promises of a dart board and splitting the cleaning — even though she’s better at it. He also offers her a job at the paper. Chloe worries that living and working together would be a bit much. He thinks it’ll be fine. “It’s not like we’re sleeping together.”

Dimitri asks a stunned Chad if he should call him Uncle Chad. Chad doesn’t want him to call him anything. He wants him to leave. Since Chad only knows Megan by reputation, Dimitri lists his mother’s glowing attributes. Chad counters she is a bitch with a heart of stone.

With all of them free, they can return to Salem and be one big happy family. “What do you say?”

Harris rigidly stands before a distraught Shawn.

At the hospital, Harris tells Shawn that Megan got an immunity deal. He promises to do everything he can to keep his parents safe. Shawn thinks he’s done enough already. Shawn leaves to tell Hope about Megan. When he returns, he tells Harris they’re moving Bo to a long-term care facility that Dimitri, Megan, Rolf, and even Harris won’t find. Harris accepts that Shawn doesn’t trust him. However, he will be returning to Salem to keep an eye on Megan.

At the Pub, Roman lashes out when Megan asks about Bo. He assures her when Bo wakes up, his heart will belong to Hope. Megan will just have to fly to Greece to make sure that doesn’t happen. But since he’s not waking up anytime soon, she’ll claim her place as a DiMera in the meantime.

After Chloe dust busts, she asks Xander how Gwen will react to her working at the paper. Xander assures her he’ll handle Gwen. He offers to give her a tour around the office. Chloe thanks him and heads to her room to change.

At home, Marlena assures Brady that no judge would grant Kristen custody. Brady knows, but he also knows he’ll be the bad guy if he refuses to let Rachel see her mother. Marlena worries he’ll get sucked back into Kristen’s orbit just to make Rachel happy. Brady declares Hell will freeze over before he lets her back into his life.

Holding coffees, Xander and Chloe glower at Kristen in the Square. Kristen uses her hands to make a point.

In the Square, a shocked Xander and Chloe run into Kristen. Kristen scoffs at Xander’s journalistic skills considering she knew about his living situation before he knew about hers. Chloe tells Kristen she can have Brady. Oh, Kristen knows. She hopes Choe and Xander are very happy together. She means that from the bottom of her heart.

When Dimitri suggests Chad summon the jet to fly them home, Chad relays that it’s not at his disposal. Dimitri will fly coach as long as they can spend time together. He’s also hoping for pointers on immersing himself in the bosom of the family. Chad calls that creepy, before informing him they all sleep with one eye open. “It’ll be both eyes with you weirdos around.” He doesn’t want a relationship with him, ever. Dimitri points out they are family, so they will be spending a lot of time together at holidays, weddings, and funerals. He embraces Chad, who doesn’t react. “There’s no escaping that, Uncle Chad.”

Megan saunters into the DiMera mansion and peers up at Stefan’s portrait. “Hi, Daddy. I’m home.” She cackles.

Dimitri embraces Chad whose arms remain at his sides.
