Desperate. (ABC)

A week’s worth of drama in a day.

Stephanie reassured Brooke on “B&B.” Stefano tracked down Kristen on “DOOL.” Jason and Sam pleaded with Heather on “GH,” and Summer spied Ronan and Phyllis 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 had a panic attack and then explained to Katie that Ridge dumped her after discovering that she’d been sending Deacon messages, begging him to stay away from their daughter and lied about it. Brooke moped. Stephanie showed up and assured her that things weren’t over.

Days of our Lives:
“Stefano managed to track down the beloved daughter he almost never mentions. He tried convincing Kristen that sending her back to town was the only way to salvage their broken family. It was unclear whether he’d bought her freedom from bondage for this task. He was also sure to point out that, if she wanted to go after John and Marlena again, the only way to get anything done these days is with a flight of stairs.” Read more about the goings on in Salem through Matt’s Days of our Lives Musings.
