B&B Recap Written by Wanda

Hope quickly hides her Mother’s Day gift for Brooke, but confesses she and R.J. are going to do the whole bit with breakfast in bed. She claims that she is just glad it is all over fighting with Steffy over Liam; waiting can be stressful but the divorce will be final soon. She wishes she had only taken the two pills prescribed by Dr. Barton and not the others. They turned her into something she is not and never wants to be again. Brooke is glad things worked out the way they did. They have been tested and are still together. Hope says the wedding will be here soon and there is nothing Steffy can do to change that. It doesn’t matter that she is so delusional. Hope believes in Liam and their love so Steffy won’t make any difference.

Stephanie is happy that Steffy has thrown herself back into her work at Forrester without the brace on her leg. She’s surprised to hear that Hope has moved out of Liam’s. She was hoping that it was because Liam tore up the annulment papers. Steffy admits she had to practically bite her tongue, but Hope senses that Steffy is more confident. So moving out was the right decision. If she had seen the look on Liam’s face when he tore up the annulment papers, then she’d know why Steffy is so sure that the marriage is not over. Liam interrupts Bill’s confession to Alison and Justin that he sicced the reporters on Hope in Aspen. Bill asks if he is all right since Hope moved out. He thinks Steffy is probably as lonely as he is. He can’t believe she stopped by to see him and actually left. He tries to give Liam a tutorial on how he should be living his life with one woman moving out and one wanting to move back in. He’s being stubborn and time is passing. And soon he will be standing before the minister with the beautiful, lovely, sweet Hope with those big blue medicated eyes. That will be a disaster. Brooke overhears Steffy talking to Stephanie about signing the annulment papers; she confronts Stephanie as soon as she is alone. She starts texting Hope immediately….until she finds out that Liam got the papers in Aspen and still has not told Hope. She refuses to believe the obvious conclusion. Stephanie reminds her that perhaps Liam is now seeing the real Hope. After all, she is a product of Brooke and Deacon, and Hope is just as messed up as Brooke was at that age.

Days Recap Written by Michele and Cheryl  **One Day Ahead

At the DiMera mansion, Agent Harmon told Stefano that things got out of hand with the bomb, but it took out their best people and crippled the ISA’s efforts to put Stefano away.  Agent Harmon said Shane told him that they were trying to figure out what to do next.  Stefano still wasn’t happy.  Harmon said as soon as he found the coin, he would give it to him.  Harmon said he couldn’t just walk in there and take the coin.  Harmon said it’s under lock and key until Shane’s team checked it out.  Stefano told Harmon he better get him the coin.  In the ISA office, Bo said that they had an advantage over Stefano since Stefano thought they were dead and that they trust Harmon.  Hope said they still didn’t have any proof that Stefano was guilty of anything.  Shane hoped Billie would get through to EJ.  Bo said if they could prove that Stefano was involved with the arms trafficking deal, they could nail him.  Hope thought that Stefano still wanted to get the coin.  Shane said his team checked out the coin, but the only thing they could find out were some numbers and the name Yvette.  Hope wanted to take another crack at it.  Shane said the people were experts.  Hope said she knew Stefano’s life story and she had more emotional investment with him.  Hope started working at the computer.  She noticed a mark in the upper right hand corner of the coin.  Shane said it looked like an engraving error.  Hope didn’t agree with that.  She asked if Shane had men working on this case.  He said he did.  She thought that the men may know cryptology, but she knew jewelry.  She said when she was Princess Gina, she was sure she had a necklace with an insignia pretty close to this one.  She said the coin was European.  Shane said he would get someone on it.  When Billie told EJ that Stefano betrayed him to help John, EJ said that he spoke to Stefano and he denied having anything to do with it.  Billie asked if EJ believed him.  EJ said John has been Stefano’s enemy for years so why would he help him.  Billie told him that he owed Alice a favor.  She told him that Bo and Hope found an IOU that Stefano gave to Alice.  She said they called in the favor and Stefano paid his debt.  She said Stefano has been undermining EJ for a while and she asked if he wondered why.  EJ realized that Billie was trying to drive a wedge between him and his father.  She didn’t care if the truth caused a rift between EJ and Stefano.  She thought EJ deserved to know the truth.  EJ didn’t believe Billie’s gesture because she hates him and his father.  She agreed that was true until Stefano killed six people.  She thought EJ was starting to look human next to him.  She said if Stefano was willing to kill six innocent people, there’s no telling what he could do to him.

Austin and Roman showed up at the safe house.  Rafe and Carrie were kissing when she heard Austin’s voice.  Rafe went to check and saw Austin and Roman.  When Austin went to see Carrie, Rafe and Roman talked about Rafe’s feelings for Carrie.  EJ confronted Stefano about helping John get exonerated.  Rafe told Roman that he and Carrie have been fighting their feelings for each other for a while.  Rafe said they realized that life was too short not to be with the people they loved.  Roman didn’t think it was a good idea for them to be together because other people would get hurt.  Austin told Carrie how happy he was to be with her.  She was uncomfortable around him.  While he was talking about their future together, she told him she wanted to tell him something.  Hope said if they tracked down the jeweler who made the coin, he might remember what the other half of the coin said.  Billie came back to the office.  Bo asked how it went with EJ.  She believed she got to him.  EJ wanted to know why Stefano helped John.  Stefano said he owed Alice.  EJ was upset that Stefano chose to honor a promise he made to Alice over his son.  Stefano said he made the promise because he loved EJ.  Stefano said he did what he did to protect his son.  EJ asked if Stefano let John go because of a debt for him.  Stefano said he did.  EJ realized that Stefano was upset that he let his enemy go for a child that wasn’t even his.  The two talked about EJ wanting Stefano to be his father.  Stefano still couldn’t claim EJ as his son.  When Stefano refused to accept EJ, EJ threatened him.  EJ threatened to use every bad trait that Stefano taught him against Stefano.  Roman reminded Rafe that Sami would resent him and Carrie if they got together.  Rafe wasn’t going to give up the woman he loved to protect Sami.  Roman told Rafe the right thing to do was to stick with Nicole and their baby.  When Carrie tried to talk to Austin, he showed her a scrapbook of their history.  When she was about to talk to him, Roman said Austin’s time was up.  Shane said that his people traced the coin back to a family jeweler in Perugia.  He said Stefano’s father used the jeweler.  Hope wanted to talk to the jeweler in person.  Bo was going with her.  Stefano warned EJ that he didn’t want him for an enemy.  Stefano wanted to declare peace.  EJ said it wasn’t that simple.  EJ said he spent years preparing to take over the DiMera empire and he wasn’t going to let it slip through his fingers.  Stefano said he didn’t have a choice.  EJ said Stefano wasn’t going to live forever.  Stefano said he wasn’t going anywhere for a while.  EJ asked who was going to take over when he’s gone.  EJ told him he would be in his own prison alone even if he avoided going to prison for killing six people.  Stefano threw EJ out of the mansion.  EJ told Stefano that it didn’t have to be this way.  EJ would have stood by him no matter what.  EJ reminded Stefano that Stefano pushed him away.  EJ said that he’s glad that he’s not his son because it’s going to make becoming his worst nightmare much easier.  Agent Harmon was at the ISA office and was trying to get in the room that Hope and Bo were in using the computer.

She asks him if he is back to take matters into his own hands because he heard that Sonny was acquitted.  He says yes, but that Starr beat him to it so he is there because Starr is being charged with attempted murder and he needs to stay close to ensure that she doesn’t do anything he would do, even though she doesn’t want his help. Carly says Starr will need him in her corner. He tells her that Starr has his other ex-wife, Téa Delgado in her corner.
