Days of our Lives
On Days of our Lives, Victor had a stroke after Ciara admitted she’d been trying to find proof he set Ben up for Jordan’s murder. She then tearfully told Ben his final death row appeal was denied, but Clyde suggested he and Ben break out of prison together. Kristen negotiated with Gabi for a job at Basic Black so she could be close to Brady and then received a visit from Steve who revealed he was really her father Stefano. Coming up: Ciara’s shocked to learn Xander and Victor’s secret.
Over on General Hospital, Nikolas revealed Valentin was really Helena’s son and not Mikkos’, meaning he wasn’t a Cassadine and had no claim to the family fortune. Nikolas further shocked his family by marrying Ava, who plotted her revenge. At the PCPD, Robert agreed to help Sam with her parole officer if she and Jason brought him proof Peter was connected to Shiloh. And Gladys gave Sonny information on a new study for Alzheimer’s patients, which gave him hope, while Carly remained skeptical. Coming up: Brad gets a rude awakening.
Young and the Restless
Finally, on The Young and the Restless, Tessa’s ex-husband Tanner, a successful musician, came to town to ask his ex to go on tour with him. With Mariah’s encouragement, Tessa agreed to the job and said a tearful goodbye to her girlfriend. When Victoria went out of town, Billy continued to cross lines by meeting with Amanda, who opened up about an abusive ex. And Sharon continued to keep her mammogram appointment a secret, but after her exam, she was told she needed to have a biopsy. Coming up: Billy looks to Lily for advice and is given an ultimatum by Victoria.
