Will and Gabi's relationship continued to go well, and they decided to take their relationship to the next level after graduation. The two spent the night together. But, soon after, Will became distant. Gabi tried many times to get Will to sleep with her again, but she sensed that something was different in their relationship. She finally made the decision to end their relationship in the fall of 2011. Soon after, Will came out of the closet.
To take her mind off the breakup, Gabi took a job as a receptionist at Quinn's Intensity Day Spa. She also began to have feelings for her ex, Chad, and proceeded to try to break up Chad and Melanie. Gabi hired a guy named Andrew to pretend to be her stalker to draw Chad closer to her, but Andrew's actions quickly got out of control when he kidnapped Melanie. Gabi threatened to expose him, but when Andrew promised to release Melanie after Gabi earned Chad's love, Gabi agreed to stay quiet.
Just as Andrew was going to tell Melanie about Gabi's involvement with the scheme, there was a huge explosion in the tunnels. Andrew seemed to get away. Melanie and Gabi were eventually connected with Chad and Brady, and the four made it out of the tunnels.
With his dying breath, Andrew promised Gabi that Chad would find out what she did. Chad overheard the conversation and ripped into Gabi. He didn't want to burden Melanie with the news that Gabi betrayed her, but he told Gabi to leave them alone.
