After Abigail (Marci Miller) filed for divorce from Chad (Billy Flynn), he quickly moved on with Gabi (Camila Banus) again on the NBC soap.
Gabi learned about her brother's arrest when Chad told him Abigail had informed him of Dario's illegal activities, including counterfeiting, hacking, and stealing money from corporations, including his own.
The misunderstanding will continue to blow up and out of proportion, and the two may not be able to come back from it if Chad finally admits that he never stopped loving Abigail.
Even if the two do manage to make up however, their time together is likely numbered, because Chad doesn't even know the whole story when it comes to Abigail and her insistence that he didn't go to the cops to report Dario's crimes.
Previously on the NBC soap, Abigail (Marci Miller) overheard Kate (Lauren Koslow) tell Chad (Billy Flynn) that he should choose Gabi (Camila Banus) over his wife, who she felt was too much like her Horton ancestors.
Now, as she and Chad continue planning their vow renewal ceremony, Abigail will decide the only way to give herself some piece of mind about Chad and Gabi is to confront Kate and warn her to back off.
After her confrontation with Kate however, Abigail may still have some insecurities.
