Deidrick's last air date was October 30, However, the actor also said he was open to return to the series for future guest stints. He is also very persuasive and he is not easy to break.
It is obvious that he has been through a lot. Deidrick hinted that Chad may suffer from abandonment issues. Chad has a different way of thinking which sets him apart from the average person, similar to rock stars Deidrick revealed in an interview.
Chad puts on a hard exterior and acts as if he does not care what others think of him. However, Chad has another layer to him; he is "very sensitive" and all about romance which makes him all the more intriguing.
He refuses to let Mia "whose been lying to him this whole time get in his way. When asked about a future love interest, Deidrick mentioned Gabriela Rodriguez who had recently been introduced to the canvas as Gabi Hernandez Gabriela Rodriguez but didn't believe a romantic pairing would work due to the age difference.

Because Deidrick did not know the pain of losing a parent, let alone his own mother, the actor does his best to portray Chad during the scenes; Deidrick's first reaction as Chad is going into denial.
Chad clings on to the little bit of courage he has left hoping to work things out with Charles in the future.
According to Deidrick, the aftermath of his mother's death and his confrontation with Charles makes Chad a little "cuckoo crazy. According to Deidrick, during scenes with Kate, he intentionally emphasized Chad's vulnerabilities due to his mother's recent death; he is in desperate need of a mother figure at the moment, and Kate fills that void.
Chad does not show that side of his personality too often for fear of getting hurt. On the other hand, Chad's relationship with his new found father Stefano appears to be a bit more volatile. The nature of the relationship is first displayed in November when Chad confronts Stefano with a knife and demands blood for a DNA test. According to Deidrick, "[Chad] struggles to find the courage to be able to love [Stefano] who had a relationship with his mother and never knew he existed.
It is all he knows thanks to D. Woods who always pushes him away when things get difficult. However, Stefano is not easily turned away.

There was much speculation that Chandler Massey 's Will Horton would be the character who turned out to be gay. Deidrick admitted he would be open to the potential pairing if the writers were to go in that direction. However, the characters remain friends even after Will comes out about his sexuality. Their relationship is so unique, not only because of Deidrick and Smith's real-life friendship, but also because Daytime rarely showcased a "best friend" type relationship between gay and straight characters.
Deidrick stated that "Chad doesn't care" about Sonny's sexuality. According to Deidrick, Abigail is immediately turned off until she realizes that Chad is different from the rest of his family. Deidrick admitted that it was easy for him to work with Mansi due to the closeness in age.

Jack's disapproval of Chad's heritage also drives a wedge between Abigail and her father as she continues to defend Chad.
Deidrick said that Chad and Melanie's kiss is accidental on the part of his character, but explains that "Melanie makes Chad feel good, kind of like a kid," as opposed to Abigail who is dealing with her chaotic family life. On other hand, Melanie wants to maintain a friendship with Chad to keep him from hurting Abigail any further. Though the feelings were very "unexpected," Chad agrees to Melanie's wishes.

In an interview with TV GuideBanus explained that Gabi who is on the rebound after breaking up with Will falls for Chad after he comes to her rescue; "she looks at [Chad] as her hero. Deidrick explained that Chad only takes on the modeling gig to make Gabi's life easier due to her split with Will.
However, when it comes to romance, Chad is focused on his budding romance with Melanie. Gabi has no idea about Melanie, so she thinks Chad's fair game. The dynamic eventually develops into a triangle which leads to Gabi becoming "very manipulative" and a bit of a "psycho" in her quest for Chad's affections.
