The Bold and the Beautiful

With the end of the year fast approaching, Brooke is already feeling nostalgic and decides to share the sensation. She has a gift for Eric that reminds him of their past, but is it arousing feelings that he should be having at the moment?

It’s not even New Year’s Eve and he’s already made a resolution to be the kind of husband that Hope deserves. That could prove easier said than done.

Days of Our Lives

Trapped in the slammer, Brady and Kristen fantasize about spending the holidays back in Salem with their families. Given how things tend to pan out in town every year, it could be a mixed blessing. The Hortons fulfill their annual tradition of gathering around the tree to hang ornaments for family and friends current and past. Jennifer gets a gift she may not have been anticipating when Jack shows up with a present that leaves her moved. In some more happy news, Belle and Shawn manage to tie the knot once again. They’re barely walking on rice when Lani’s water breaks. She heads into labor with her family hardly giving her a moment’s peace. Allie may be looking for a little respite herself. But she’s not likely to get it after she makes a confession to Sami. Later, no doubt making things worse, Lucas has a confrontation with Tripp while Allie pushes Claire to give Charlie a special surprise that’s sure to turn out badly.

After everything that happened to her family in the past year, mostly because of her brother, Ava is not looking forward to Christmas.

He’s been back for a while, but Carly finally gets around to introducing Dante to Donna. As he is uncomfortably settling into family life, Obrecht is itchy to get her old life back and concocts a new scheme.

The Young and the Restless

It’s the end of a year that has seen some seismic shifts in the Abbott family. This means that Jack is being more reflective than usual.

Working on a much smaller scale, Rey and Sharon start some special holiday traditions of their own. But the cop still has something else on his mind and tells Lola about it. Billy may not be spreading a lot of cheer but that’s not stopping him from trying to get romantic with Lily.
