Not for long will The Bold and the Beautiful be able to hide Steffy’s pregnancy behind a purse. Certainly not one this teensy. But who’s the daddy? When a paternity test reveals that it’s Liam, both his marriage to Hope and Steffy’s relationship with Finn will go up in flames.
The Face Is Unfamiliar, But…
When Days of Our Lives’ Sami returns to Salem, she’ll do so with true love EJ, no longer a shell of his old self but the spitting image of The Young and the Restless’ Daniel Goddard (ex-Cane).
A Friend in Need…
… is a friend indeed. So, after General Hospital blows up Maxie’s relationship with Peter, she’ll refocus her energies on helping Dante adjust to being a suddenly-single dad. One thing will lead to another, and the two of them will have started seeing each other as more than pals just in time for Lulu to emerge from her coma.
Good Girl Gone Bad
Seeing that her bad behavior is causing Sharon and Nick to spend more time together, Young & Restless‘ Faith continues acting out in the hope of reuniting her parents for good.
Three’s a Crowd
Once Liam has gotten the heave-ho from both Hope and Steffy, the Bold & Beautiful loner will begin spending more time hanging out with Wyatt and Flo… inadvertently making his brother paranoid that he’s about to steal yet another woman!
We’ll Drink to That
In fact, we’ll drink the whole bottle to Days of Our Lives finally ending the “suspense” and revealing what we’ve all been thinking for ages: that Gwen is Jack’s daughter from one of his many walkabouts.
Back in Action
So many hints have been dropped that Vanessa Marcil will be returning Brenda to General Hospital that this entry barely qualifies as a prediction. Honestly, it’s more of a reminder. “Hey, kids, don’t forget — Sonny and Jax’s ex is probably headed home.”
‘Checking In… or Just Checking Me Out?’
The second the honeymoon period ends for Young & Restless newlywed Chance, he’ll recall that Phyllis has occasionally looked at him like this, and quicker than you can order room service, they’ll be upstairs forgetting — however briefly — that they ever knew the names Abby and Nick.
To eliminate her competition for Zende on The Bold and the Beautiful, Paris will ensure that he doesn’t arrive at Zoe’s wedding to Carter in time to say “I do… not want you to go through with this!”
The Power of Three
Working with two secret partners, The Young and the Restless’ Adam takes control of Jabot in order to use that company to grind Newman Enterprises into the dust. Adam’s co-horts? Jack’s long-forgotten son Keemo and recently-rejected Abbott Theo, each bitter about their treatment at his hands.
That’s Using the Ol’ Noggin
Days of Our Lives will realize that Mike Manning is way too appealing an actor to lose, so the show will give Charlie a brain tumor (or something like it) in hopes of getting us to forget that he raped Allie.
‘No, Nelle, Nobody’s Surprised You’re Alive’
We will, however, be thrilled if General Hospital not only reveals that the scheme queen still has a pulse but capitalizes on the chemistry between Josh Swickard and Chloe Lanier by hooking up Chase and the vixen who’s long been his Kryptonite.
Father’s Day Already?
No sooner will The Young and the Restless’ Devon and Amanda leave the friend zone than Elena will discover that she’s expecting what could be his baby — or cousin Nate’s.
The Doctor Is In… Sane
And we thought Thomas had issues. Bold & Beautiful fans will be taken on a wild-as-hell — emphasis on the “hell” — ride as the dark side we’ve long suspected lurks beneath the surface of Finn comes raging to the fore.
The Dream Scheme Team
Upon returning to Days of Our Lives, Gabi will form an unlikely partnership with Abigail. Yes, that Abigail. Why? Because the enemies realize that only by proving they can put aside their very major differences can they convince Chad and Jake to do the same.
Consider Trouble Made
In the new year, General Hospital lawyer Martin will do more than chase ambulances, he’ll chase Lucy, too. And though she’s largely sworn off plot-hatching, she won’t be able to resist the scheme that Laura’s half brother cooks up to bail Deception out of a tight spot.
First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage…
… then The Young and the Restless’ Tessa and Mariah will decide that it’s no fun having a baby carriage without a baby in it. But they might come to regret asking Noah to be their sperm donor when sparks that we all thought had been put out long ago flare up anew between him and Tessa.
Can’t Spell Compassion Without Passion
The sigh of relief that Ridge heaved on The Bold and the Beautiful when Brooke reached out to troubled stepson Thomas — and invited him to move in! — will turn into a gasp of shock when she’s reminded of the chemistry that they shared during the boinkberry era when Adam Gregory played the part.
Lonely Hearts Club
Once the truth about Days of Our Lives’ Charlie comes out, Claire will need a shoulder to cry on. Enter Ben, perhaps the only person in Salem who is anywhere near as broken as she is. Will they find comfort in one another? Is this a soap opera? Of course they will.
Stone Cold and Red-Hot
Ever the hero, General Hospital hitman Jason will endeavor to help Sam move on from him and his dangerous lifestyle by hooking up with arguably the only character who’s as much of a hellion as his long-ago bedmate Carly was: Britt. As this image suggests, she, uh… she likes what she sees.
If at First, Second and Third You Don’t Succeed…
Taking stock of his offspring, The Young and the Restless’ Victor will realize that hmm, he’s been sued by Nick, Victoria and Abby, and as for Adam… sheesh. The less said, the better. Determined to get it 100-percent right as a parent at least once, the gazillionaire will take under his wing a youngster in crisis. But will it be Jordan? Jared? Or someone new?
