A week’s worth of drama in a day.

Last week, Liam suggested his father get a dog on “B&B.” Sami and Austin got an eyeful of their spouses on “DOOL.” Mac engaged in a little strip pool on “GH.” And Patty took aim and shot Jack on “Y&R.”

In case you missed any of it, our sister site Soap Opera Fan Blog posts weekly soap opera summaries every Monday. Here are a few excerpts from last week, which can be found in full through the link above.

The Bold And The Beautiful: News of Liam and Steffy’s split spread. Steffy reminded Hope to stick to her morals. Meanwhile, Katie told Liam that she may never trust his dad again. Ridge showed up to weigh in and urge Liam to stick by his wife. Bill showed up next. His son was sick of all of his attention and suggested he get a dog instead, or at least look after his own marriage before it was too late.

Days of our Lives: Austin and Sami walked in on Rafe and Carrie having what appeared to be some kind of extremely kinky date. They were dressed up in princess gear, surrounded by pink balloons and dancing all over the pub. “This kind of thing puts EJ’s scarf fetish to shame,” she must have been thinking to herself. Austin was deeply hurt. She never agreed to play princess with him when he asked, or dress up in any of the other outfits he’d brought home.

General Hospital: Mac ran into Alexis and tried asking her out but she was flustered. Later, he ran into her at Jake’s with Diane, who had just guessed that her friend was going through menopause. Diane attempted to push Alexis and Mac together, no matter how much the lawyer resisted. They played strip pool and Mac had to be driven home in his underwear. Alexis wouldn’t do it so Diane took him.

The Young And The Restless: Patty intercepted Genevieve’s letter and joined Jack at the altar in Genevieve’s dress. When he lifted her veil, Jack thought she was Emily, but Patty announced herself and shot him! Patty took Abby long enough to escape then let her go.
