Chad walks in and is not thrilled to see his brother based on what he did to Abigail. Chad and EJ fill him in on Abigail's status. Stefan offers his sincere condolences and asks if the killer was caught. Chad brings up Leo's name and EJ questions if Leo really is a killer. Chad remarks that Sonny only remembers the scent of vanilla, but can't ID his attacker. When Chad leaves, the talk returns to the shares.

Horton's: Jack brings Jennifer an ice cream sundae tray, but she declines it because it was one of Abigail's favorite family traditions. Jack suggests next time they include Thomas and Charlotte so they can share their collective memories. Jennifer decides to dig in. They chitchat about Abigail and their romantic past.

Random motel room: Leo declares the real killer is Craig and outlines why. Gwen doesn't think he's capable of killing Abigail. After throwing some theories around, they land back on Craig.

Gwen's ready to call the police. Leo wonders if Gwen will turn him in, but she wants to prove his innocence. Gwen reads off a text she's sending to Rafe. She thinks they should investigate Craig because Leo's being framed. She sends the text, which Leo didn't read. Leo is grateful that Gwen's letting him stay with her.

Brady Pub: Craig tells Nancy he's back because of Leo. Craig blames himself, but Nancy claims he didn't know Leo was dangerous. Clyde agrees and they formally meet each other. The three talk about Leo's hit list, but find it odd he hasn't made a move against Chloe or Brady. Craig claims Leo hasn't done anything because he's still in love with him.
