Faith (Alyvia Alyn Lind) decided that her parents, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon (Sharon Case), were right and that she should name her bullies. Also, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) took issue with Jack’s (Peter Bergman) developing relationship with Sally (Courtney Hope).
The Bold and the Beautiful
Over on BB, Zende (Delon de Metz) entertained Paris (Diamond White) at the Forrester mansion. Katie (Heather Tom) and Donna (Jennifer Gareis) extended a warm hand to Flo (Katrina Bowden), their niece, and even Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) budged a little when it came to giving Flo another chance.
The drama heated up on GH when Gregory (Gregory Harrison) discovered that his son, Finn (Michael Easton), and his estranged wife Jackie (Demi Moore) had once been involved. Michael (Chad Duell) told Nina (Cynthia Watros) to take a big step back after she mishandled a visit with her grandson Wiley (Erik and Theo Olson). After the double-wedding double-fiasco, Franco (Roger Howarth) knocked Peter (Wes Ramsey) unconscious.
Days of our Lives
Finally, on DAYS, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Lani’s (Sal Stowers) aunt, arrived in Salem. Belle (Martha Madison) was stunned to discover that Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) fingerprints were on the gun that killed Charlie (Mike Manning). Kristen (Stacy Haiduk), continued her masquerade as Susan.
