The summer weather isn’t the only thing that is making things hot “Days of Our Lives,” “Young and the Restless,” and “Bold and the Beautiful.”

The drama is making sure that the temperatures outside are matched by what’s going on inside in Salem, Genoa City, and Los Angeles. In case you missed a minute of the devious plotting, dramatic devastation or unexpected reveals, here are the six biggest things that happened during the week of July 16.

Gabi Gets Her Revenge

Gabi (Camila Banus) has wanted revenge against both Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Abigail (Marci Miller) ever since she got out of prison, and since learning she could no longer have children as a result of the attack she endured while behind bars, she has been actively working to destroy both of their lives. Not only did she switch the DNA test results on Abigail, making her believe the baby she is carrying belongs to Stefan and not Chad (Billy Flynn), she has also “accidentally” given the fake results to him, which prevents Abigail from getting the abortion she intended to. Now, she will be able to sit back and watch the fireworks as both of their lives get blown up because of the pregnancy news.

Theresa Wins The Custody Battle

After it appeared Brady (Eric Martsolf) had planted cocaine at JJ’s (Casey Moss), Theresa (Jen Lilley) wound up winning custody of Tate, and Brady was forced to say goodbye to his son as a result. Making things worse, however, was that no sooner did Theresa take Tate, that she was forced to leave Salem with him and head to California, where she has learned her mother is suffering from leukemia.

A Devastating Car Crash Occurs

Lily (Christel Khalil) and Hilary (Mishael Morgan) have never been friends, but their animosity for one another led to devastating heartbreak this week. As they fought while trying to find Shauna (Camryn Hamm), Lily ran a red light—and a truck crashed into their car as a result. Hilary sadly lost the baby she was carrying as a result, and things aren’t looking good for her either.

Nick Embraces His Dark Side

Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) is no longer letting his father—or anyone else—walk all over him. Not only did he reveal he had been impersonating JT and was behind all of the troubles surrounding Newman, but he started his own company to compete with Newman as well. To top things off, when Sharon (Sharon Case) then began to question if they should still get married because of how he had changed, he repeated the same behavior he did when they had trouble during their marriage—by sleeping with Phyllis (Gina Tognoni).

“The Bold And The Beautiful” (CBS)

Zoe Is Exposed

The truth about Zoe (Kiara Barnes) was finally exposed after Xander (Adain Bradley) realized his ex was in L.A. and had behind the threats posted on the Hope for The Future website. However, despite being warned to stay away, Zoe managed to find a way to bring herself closer to both Xander and Emma (Nia Sioux)--by hijacking the HFTF fashion show and potentially scoring a job at Forrester as a result.

Bill Plots To Win Steffy

Despite swearing he was done trying to win Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood), Bill (Don Diamont) was back at it after he learned that Hope (Annika Noelle) was also pregnant with Liam’s (Scott Clifton) baby. Now, he is doing whatever it takes to prove Liam won’t be committed to Steffy, in the hopes she finally ends things with Liam for good, and finally opens herself up to a romance with him.
