Hello, soap fans. Welcome back to our newest feature -- the TV Squad Soap Round-Up. Each week, come visit us for a quick recap of what happened the previous week on all the daytime dramas. Remember, though, we're talking about every soap, from 'All My Children' to 'The Young and the Restless,' so if you don't want to know what you missed, consider this your SPOILER ALERT. For this week, we've divided the shows by network, starting with NBC's 'Days of Our Lives.'
'Days of Our Lives'
Sami was convinced that EJ was being sincere about his new attitude, even though both Brady and Rafe warned her not to trust him. Unbeknownst to Sami, EJ was in cahoots with Stefano again. Stefano realized that EJ was still in love with Sami, and forced EJ to do his bidding or else he was going to tell Sami the truth about EJ's part in Sydney's kidnapping. Meanwhile, Nicole advised Chloe to fight for Daniel before Carly made a move on him. Hope and Carly were fighting again, and Adrienne saved Justin when he was attacked outside the bar. Melanie confided to Daniel that she was in love with two men at once.
'All My Children'
After meeting with Kendall, Greenlee remembered her near-fatal accident and blamed Kendall for causing it.

At his trial, Greenlee savaged Kendall's reputation, causing Ryan to rebuke Kendall for her venom. Adam was warned to de-stress or he's going to die, so he resigned from Chandler and gave JR the company to run. To save his father from Annie, JR seduced her, but was disgusted with himself for being enticed by her.
Once Alexis confessed all to Mac that she was the hit and run driver, Warren Bauer was out for blood when Alexis was released and even confronted Kristina to accuse her of slandering Kiefer's reputation. Dante wound up in jail for contempt of court when he stopped Claire from questioning Morgan, and Claire countered by offering Sonny a plea bargain. Jason agreed to do the jail time for Sonny, but Claire took the deal off the table. That meant that Carly's testimony was crucial in Sonny winning an acquittal. Liz struck up a new friendship with Shirley, a terminal cancer patient.

Todd was on the warpath after catching Hannah and Cole in a compromising position, turning on Marty and threatening to destroy her happiness with John.
