After pushing Chad out of the way of a speeding car, and sacrificing herself in the process, Abby is in critical condition with life-threatening injuries. She has had surgery to repair the cause of internal bleeding, however, Kayla warns everyone that Abby has lost a lot of blood and is still fighting for her life.
Days of Our Lives viewers know that Dario has been blackmailing Abby, forcing her to leave her home to go into witness protection with him. Returning to the party after everyone had been drugged, Dario managed to secure a photograph of Chad standing with the victim in which he appears to be wiping his fingerprints off of the knife used to kill Deimos. While at the hospital, Andre tells Chad the truth about the photograph, as well as Abby’s reasons for going with Dario into witness protection. The photograph has been deleted from existence, but that doesn’t stop Chad from wanting to do the right thing.
After Chad visits Abby’s bedside, Andre drags him off to have a conversation about the murder of Deimos. Andre tells Chad that Thomas could very well lose his mother and will need his father. That being said, one day Thomas will grow up and know the difference between right and wrong. Wanting his son to know that he has done the right thing, Chad plans to confess to the murder of Deimos when Abby wakes up from surgery.
