Days of Our Lives

Kayla and Hope talk about Sami wanting to marry EJ to end the vendetta. They admire Sami for being honest with Lucas through the whole thing. Kayla says yeah well its best to be honest all the time. Hope says not always, sometimes the truth can be deadly. Kayla wants to know what she meant by that. At first Hope says it was nothing but then she tells her that she found out something about Belle and Shawn. She tells her that Belle slept with Phillip and she tells her the whole story. Kayla tells her that she may have promised Belle not to tell Shawn but she didn’t promise not to tell Bo. When Hope says she is right and that she knows what she has to do, Kayla says but telling Bo might be the biggest mistake she ever does.

Belle is in her room when a knock is on the door. Putting her robe on she asks who is there. It is Phillip. He says he wanted to know if he could take Claire out with him for a little while but she says her Mom needed some cheering up so Claire is with her for a few days. He notices that Shawn must not be there and asks if he can come in but she tells him no. He says they need to talk, she says there is nothing to talk about. He says they made love, that should be enough to talk about, she tells him she wonders if Hope would agree. He wants to know what Hope has to do with this.

When she tells him he says don’t worry about Hope. He wants to make love again to her in Shawn’s bed. She tells him to go away and not come back for her or Claire. He says he will go but not til she looks in his face and tells him she wants Shawn and not him. She tells him she wants Shawn and not him, and she walks back into her room, leaving the door open. He comes in and tells her she lied to him. She says he has to go because Shawn would be right back, and she has to get dressed. He tells her to go ahead, so she takes her clothes and goes into the bathroom but doesn’t close the door completely. Phillip watches her as she puts her clothes on and when she comes out he kisses her. She pushes him away and tells him he doesn’t play fair.

She asks him if he wants the truth. She shows him a picture of Shawn and Claire, and then she says to Phillip, that she can live without him but as she holds the picture up to him, she says she can’t live without this. She confesses to him how hurt she was when he walked out on her and their marriage when they found out Claire wasn’t his. She said she felt worthless when he had Lucas deliver their divorce papers. Then she tells him it was Shawn there for her to help her pick up the pieces. It was Shawn there for her when she needed him. He tells her he didn’t know all this and he apologizes. She asks him if he loves her and he says more than anything. She says get the hell out of her life then.

Shawn is still being turned down at the police academy. The board is aware that Shawn was set up to look like an unfit parent which forced them to skip out when they ran away with Claire. But they will reconsider reinstating his application come the first of the year. Shawn tells Bo he can’t wait til the first of the year, he needs work now. Bo tells him to
quit this war with Phillip. He needs to stop worrying about Phillip. Shawn says every time he gets knocked back Phillip is there ready to step in his shoes.

Bo tells Hope about Shawn being turned down for the police academy. He tells her that there was a letter from someone that was against Shawn, saying that he doesn’t have what it takes to become a police officer. Hope tells Bo that she has something to tell him but makes him promise not to lose his cool over it. She tells him about Belle sleeping with Phillip.

The Young and The Restless

The official report has come in and there was no evidence of any defects in any of the buildings. They have determined that the cause of the accident was from a Natural gas field. Nick tells Neil to find out who owns it and Neil tells him that the news reports confirm that Victor owns it. Victor reads the IST report and it says his company has followed all regulations and this is considered to be an accident.

Everyone is pointing their finger at Victor as being responsible for the accident. David tells Nikki that they know the reason for the accident. The explosion was caused my methane drilling outside of town. The Mining Company was owned by Victor.

Katherine and Cane are planning to get to Victor because of this. Katherine wants to go see Nikki in case she doesn’t know about this yet. When she gets there Nikki is happy to see her.

Victor talks to his people, and he says he wants to know who the hell was in charge of this department and he wants names. Nikki walks in and tells Victor that if he did this and if his company is responsible for putting their daughter in this hospital bed she will never forgive him for it. She says she prays to God that he had nothing to do with it. Victor tells her how dare her for thinking this. Nikki walks away.

Neil tells Victor that he has looked over the records and there everything was done by the book. Nick comes in and asks Victor to please tell him that he had nothing to do with this. He tells Nick that there was no indication that anything like this could happen.

JT is with Victoria talking to her trying to hard to wake her up. Nick listens in and smiles as he listens in. 

Nikki tells David that Victor has always tried to control everything. His business always came ahead of them. She thought about leaving him several times. She tells David that the only reason Victor bought those mineral rights was to spite her. If only she had left him before that none of this would have ever happened, her daughter would not be lying in that hospital bed fighting for her life if she had.

Cane tells JT that Victor Newman was drilling and that caused an explosion not the faulty concrete, He says that Victor is responsible for his fiancé being in that bed and for him almost losing his grandmother. Victor walks in and JT asks him if that’s true, Victor tells him that they are investigating it. Victor tells Nick of course he didn’t do this on purpose. He did everything by the book. All this is because of some broken monitor and some worker not doing his job.

Neil and Katherine talk. Neil assures her that Victor’s company played by the book. He checked the records himself. He says everything was followed to the code. Katherine tells him yeah well let her tell him something, Victor loves playing God. Katherine vows to throw so many lawsuits against Victor that he will need a team of lawyers to battle them.

Victor is feeling guilty, like he should have known better. Neil tells him this was an accident and if it makes him feel any better he would have done the same thing if he were in that position.
