Marla Adams as Dina Abbott on "The Young and the Restless"
Dina Abbott Mergeron (Marla Adams) returned to “The Young and the Restless” this week, one of several big moments that occurred on three of the major soaps. CBS

Soap Operas are full of drama by nature, and even a quick break away from the television could mean missing a big moment in a character’s story. The week of May 1 was jam-packed with action on “Days of Our Lives,” “Bold and the Beautiful,” and “The Young and the Restless,” so here some moments you may have missed with each show.

“Days Of Our Lives” (NBC)

Nicole’s Dangerous Situation

After believing she and Brady (Eric Martsolf) were safe in their Canadian cabin, Nicole (Arianne Walker) was stunned when none other than Xander (Paul Telfer) showed up. Brady was quickly shot and left for dead, and Xander kidnapped Nicole and baby Holly, taking them hostage. When Nicole woke up after being chloroformed, she learned she was somewhere in Greece, unaware she was on Xander’s private island—or who had hired him to miraculously come back from the presumed dead to take her captive. She attempted an escape which was foiled, and now, Xander is keeping her and Holly away from one another, and Nicole is sitting in a cage, just hoping she can be rescued.

Brady’s Life-Threatening Injuries

Thankfully for Brady, he didn’t die in the cabin, after Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Paul (Christopher Sean) arrived and found him after doing some digging to find out where Deimos (Vincent Irizarry) had disappeared to. He was transferred back to Salem for his recovery and begged his brother Eric (Greg Vaughan) to go on a mission to find and rescue Nicole before it was too late. However, things stopped looking up for Brady after Rafe (Galen Gerig) arrived to arrest him, and he suddenly stopped breathing. Now, the man who received Daniel’s heart has his life hanging in the balance, because his body is beginning to reject the transplant, and if another heart doesn’t arrive soon, he could die.

Billy And Phyllis Are Forced Out Into The Open

After secretly reigniting their romance a few weeks ago, Billy (Jason Thompson) and Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) were forced to finally up front and out in the open with their relationship. After Cane (Daniel Goddard) caught them making out at the Athletic Club, he took matters into his own hands when it came to making sure Victoria (Amelia Heinle) learned about the romance. She was devastated when she saw them together, but seeing them meant she had to face the truth that she had lost Billy again. It also forced the two to finally be open, and they also went to Jack (Peter Bergmann) to let him know that they were a couple again. Telling their respective exes will finally free them up to be the couple they intend to be.

Dina Abbott Returns

She abandoned her children years ago, and has since taken up in Paris to run her company, Mergeron Enterprises. However, Dina (Marla Adams) was brought back into the Genoa City spotlight after news broke her company was up for sale. While she was still in Paris when she took a meeting with Neal (Kristoffer St. John) and Devon (Bryton James), her reemergence was still being felt back home, as Jack and Ashley (Eileen Davidson) both coped with painful memories from their past that hearing about her stirred up.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” (CBS)

Sally Learns Her Fate

Sally (Courtney Hope) learned that Forrester was considering pressing charges for the stolen designs and was counting on a testimony from Coco (Courtney Grosbeck) to make their case. Sally refused to let her sister become more involved in the drama than she already was, and made a full confession. She then made an appeal to Thomas (Pierson Fode) as she once again apologized for betraying him. After some deep consideration, Forrester decided to go through with their initial decision, and Sally was arrested for Industrial Espionage. She could now face up to 15 years in prison, and was forced to tell her employees that Spectra was going to have to close its doors.

An Unexpected Ally

However, things seemed like they could possibly turn around for Sally. After she was summoned for a pre-trial deposition, she learned she would likely only be sentenced to five years, which was still disheartening to hear, but better than the worst-case scenario. Her only hope was for a reliable witness to testify on her behalf when the case heads to court. Shirley (Patrica Darbo) and Saul (Alex Wyse) each tried to be that person for her, but both were rejected by the judge. In an unexpected twist, Thomas showed up, and despite being one of the primary plaintiffs in the case, told the judge he would testify on Sally’s behalf. The motion stunned Sally, and led to a possible reunion between she and her former boyfriend, as they shared a passionate kiss outside the judge’s office afterwards.
