A review of the week's events:
The Bold and the Beautiful: Katie was surprised when Brooke revealed that she had returned from her honeymoon without Ridge. The Forrester clan had mixed reactions when Ridge named his temporary replacement as CEO at Forrester. Donna cooed over Bill and Katie's son, Will. Bill threatened Donna after she overheard him admit to Katie that he blackmailed the prison warden to release Deacon as part of Bill's plan to keep Hope and Liam from getting married. Donna planned to tell Hope the truth -- until she saw Liam and Steffy getting physical. To win over Caroline, Rick arranged for her to have her own Forrester collection
Days of Our Lives: Bo made the decision to quit the police force and handed Roman his resignation. Bo then spent time with Hope and their daughter, Ciara. An angry Chad blamed Gabi when he received a "Dear John" letter from Melanie. E.J. fumed when he learned Nick forced Chad to sign legal papers to keep him from telling the police about Gabi's part in Melanie's kidnapping. Rafe patched things up with Sami after learning E.J. can no longer blackmail him with the threat to send Gabi to jail. Daniel told Jennifer they can't be friends because he feels it's his place to help Nicole and her baby. At her doctor's appointment, Nicole was in shock when her baby had no heartbeat and the doctor said her baby was dead. Nicole rushed to tell Daniel her baby had died but said nothing when she saw him with Jennifer. Sami asked Rafe if he really is the father of Nicole's baby, adding that if he isn't, she would help him deal with E.J.'s threats.
General Hospital: Kristina felt betrayed by Trey after he admitted that he has known for a while that Kate (Connie) is his mother, and that his father, Joe Jr., is plotting to take everything away from Sonny. Joe Jr. later kidnapped Kristina and forced her to call Alexis and tell her that she wasn't coming to Sonny and Kate's (Connie's) wedding. Joe Jr. was shot as he and Trey struggled over the gun Joe Jr. planned to shoot Kristina with. Elizabeth admitted to Jason that she switched the DNA results on Sam's baby because, at the time, Sam had kept mum that she knew their son Jake had been run down and killed by Luke. When John went to tell Tea that her son had died and that Victor is really Sam's baby, they were shocked to find that baby Victor was missing (he had been kidnapped by Heather). Before Connie (Kate) and Sonny said their "I do's," Connie (Kate) announced she was married -- to Johnny.
The Young and The Restless: Eden underwent hypnosis again, but unfortunately, didn't remember anything that would clear Paul of charges that he murdered Ricky. Paul found the knife Ricky had threatened to slash Eden with in an alley, but no fingerprints were found on it. A mystery person walked past the alley. Phyllis told Daniel that someone used the name "Sheila Carter" to sign Daisy out of Fairview Sanitarium. Daniel, who is getting close to Heather, asked for her help to divorce Daisy in absentia. Nina told Ronan that she was disappointed that he has risked his career to have an affair with Phyllis. Phyllis told Ronan that she's going to stay with Nick. Victor had Sharon arrested on charges including fraud and conspiracy.
