Kelley Missal – One Life to Live
Sometimes there is only so much a person can take before they make a very bad choice that leads them down a dangerous road. Dani is lost. After mourning the death of Victor (the man she thought was her Father) who was shot by her biological father, Todd, Dani has been neglected by both her Mother and Todd. Todd left Llanview for Port Charles, and Tea was so buried in grief over the loss of her infant son, that she could not see how badly Dani was hurting. In the previous Episode, Dani overdoses on Oxy and collapses at the opening of Blair’s new club, Shelter. Todd has come to town because Dani has been “drunk dialing” him, and he is worried about her. He arrives just in time to see Dani collapse and picks her up and rushes her to the hospital. Victor, back from the dead, also arrives at Shelter and sees Dani collapse. Victor and Tea wait bedside for Dani to wake up, while Todd watches from a distance.
Lindsey Godfrey – The Bold and the Beautiful
Socialite Caroline Spencer is determined to win back the heart of her boyfriend, Forrester Creations President, Rick Forrester. However, Rick is currently in love and in a committed relationship with Maya Avant, a woman who has pulled her life together from a sketchy past. In her attempt to break Maya and Rick up, Caroline ensures that Maya is hired by her friend; producer Rafael, to star in a web series entitled “Room 8.” While watching the opening titles with Rafael and Maya’s hunky co-star, Carter, Caroline is not impressed with what she sees. She offers up her services to revamp the entire episode and comes up with a plan where she and Rafael can both be satisfied with the series. She explains how she will intercut ‘fantasies’ and sex it up between Maya and Carter.
Kim Matula – The Bold and the Beautiful
Always forgiving and understanding in the past when it comes to her true-love Liam Spencer and her half sister, Steffy Forrester, fashion designer Hope Logan is confident that this time she and Liam will make it to the altar without interruption from Steffy who is far away in Paris. Unfortunately, even though she truly does own Liam’s heart, unforeseen forces are still conspiring against her. Days before their wedding, Liam made Hope a video tribute to their love. Having accidentally seen it when Liam was asking Steffy to send the signed annulment papers, Steffy requested Liam make one for her. Making it clear that he doesn’t intend to reunite with her, Liam honors Steffy’s request. Innocent enough. Right? Well, not if you’re Quinn Fuller, who desperately wants Hope to be with her son, Liam’s half-brother, Wyatt. Quinn finds the video that Liam sent Steffy and anonymously sends it to Hope. The outcome is heart-wrenching.
