A week’s worth of drama in a day.

Brooke warned Hope about Deacon on “B&B.” Stefano was a target on “Days.” Sam gave birth on “GH,” and Ricky met with Dr. Tim Reid on “Y&R.”

Here are a few excerpts from last week’s episodes, which can be found in full in Soap Opera Fan Blog Weekly Soap Opera Summaries.

The Bold And The Beautiful:
Brooke lectured her daughter to keep Deacon out of her life and far from her mind. Then she went off to lecture her daughter’s shrink for bringing Deacon up in the first place. Hope filled Marcus in on her mom’s rant. At that moment, Justin’s phone accidentally dialed Marcus, who picked up and overheard Bill plotting.

Days of our Lives:
“One by one the people of Salem marched over to Casa DiMera and threatened to shoot Stefano. Marlena dropped in to do a PSA about bullying while all of her friends came in to bully an unarmed man. Hope loaded up her pistol and ran into the night. She couldn’t shoot him. Abe couldn’t shoot him. Bo couldn’t shoot him. John couldn’t shoot him. Will couldn’t shoot him. Kate couldn’t shoot him. Finally, someone snuck in and shot him in the back.” Read more about the goings on in Salem through Matt’s Days of our Lives Musings.
