Days of Our Lives recap: Chloe gets a shock when she sees Stefan
Alone in a judge’s office, Chloe tries to reassure Brady that he won’t lose custody of Rachel. Belle joins them, wondering where Kristen is. Brady doesn’t know, but assumes she’s up to nothing good. The judge arrives and Belle decides to dismiss the case since Kristen isn’t there.
Outside the Brady Pub, Kristen furiously types on her phone as Li walks up to her. He needs to talk, but she has to go to court. He warns that she might want to take some time for him, given that she ordered Rolf to wake Stefan up before he was ready. He tells that Stefan went straight to the crypt and told Gabi he didn’t love her. Kristen thinks he shouldn’t be mad then, but Li reminds her that it was a dangerous move. Now he doesn’t know where Stefan is, and Gabi is a mess. Kristen can’t be bothered, as she has her own issues to deal with.

In her chambers, the judge declares that if Kristen does not show up in the next minute, she will grant the motion to dismiss. Kristen arrives and declares that she is representing herself. She calls her first witness – Chloe Lane. The judge reminds her that this is not a trial, but Kristen states that Brady and Chloe’s relationship is more serious than what Brady conveyed to the judge, and Rachel hates her. Kristen wants the judge to know some things about her. Despite Belle’s objections, the judge allows her to question Chloe.
Chloe sits next to the judge as Kristen asks why she is trying to steal her daughter. Brady rolls his eyes. Kristen brings up the fact that Chloe is Nicole’s surrogate and accuses her of trying to keep the baby for her. Chloe insists she was doing what was best for the baby at the time. Belle steps in to ask Chloe what their relationship is like now. Chloe explains that she and Nicole are best friends and that she often takes care of Holly.
During a recess, Belle confesses to Brady that it’s worse than she expected. Chloe really wants to testify against Kristen now, but Belle fears it will backfire. She offers Chloe to leave. Since it’s better for Brady and Rachel, Chloe leaves. When the hearing resumes, the judge allows Kristen to question Brady. She asks why he thinks it’s appropriate for their daughter to be raised by a murderer.
In DiMera’s crypt, Gabi picks up her wedding ring and says, “You came back to me, and this time, I’m not going to let you go.” She remembers seeing Stefan again, as well as her rejection. She wonders what Rolf did to her and vows never to say goodbye to him again.
