What Happened in Salem: Week of December 7th
Abigail’s nightmare came to an end, but Hope’s continued full-throttle…
Chad and Abigail escaped the burning bed with a surprising amount of ease, but not before Ben fled with the baby. He took him to a motel and then left him there, nestled in a pillow fort, to go get supplies. Lani and JJ headed to the Blue Room, correctly assuming that 72% of all action takes place there, and they got lucky when it turned out to be playing the role of Midwife Wendy’s (RIP) office. They found Ben stealing baby supplies and arrested him. Lani took him back to Salem, while JJ found Abigail and Chad near the burning cabin and was shocked to learn that she’d already had the baby. Back in Salem, a frantic Abigail questioned Ben to try and figure out where her son was, but he suffered a severe psychotic break (as opposed to the moderate one he had earlier that led him to kill several people) and wouldn’t stop babbling. She eventually ascertained that the baby might be at a motel, and after Roman alerted the authorities, Abigail was swiftly and somewhat anticlimactically reunited with her son. She decided to rename him Thomas Jack Deveraux.
