Soaps.com has highlights from last week’s Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital and Young and the Restless episodes from January 7 – 11, as well as a teaser for what’s to come…

Bold and the Beautiful

First on The Bold and the Beautiful, Hope blamed herself for the loss of her daughter, Beth. Steffy promised to help Hope through her grief, and the whole family rallied around Hope. Meanwhile, Zoe worried about her father Reese blaming himself for Beth’s death, but Reese was more concerned about paying his debts. Later, Reese surprised Taylor with a newborn baby, presumably for Steffy to adopt, and probably Hope’s not-dead-daughter. Come on, GH is doing an almost identical storyline right now! Coming up: Thorne feels left out watching Bill, Katie and Will connect.
