The Bold and the Beautiful
What happened during the week of July 30, 2012
Anthony had insisted that the police charge Marcus, and they did, much to Daisy's chagrin. During a hearing before a judge, Marcus admitted that he had been text messaging in the car. Marcus had to stay in jail. Thomas and Caroline discovered that the damage to Marcus' car was not consistent with hitting a person. Marcus had a flat tire and a bent rim, and Thomas had the exact same damage after hitting a pothole outside of Dayzee's. Caroline and Thomas checked the security camera video from Dayzee's and raced to the hearing to share what they had discovered about Anthony's accident. Hope confronted Liam and Steffy after she discovered the video. Liam begged Hope for forgiveness, but Hope said she needed time. Hope confronted Steffy, and Hope said she hated Steffy, who told Hope to get over it. Steffy told Hope to return to Liam, but Hope said that Liam and Steffy had a connection, and she couldn't forgive them. Steffy visited Liam and told him that Hope was behaving like a child because she wouldn't forgive them. Steffy told Liam that it was time for him to leave Hope, and start a life with Steffy. Liam seemed conflicted. Brooke warned Hope that Steffy would pursue Liam if Hope left him, but Hope didn't care. Hope said she needed time away from Liam.

General Hospital
What happened during the week of July 30, 2012
Patrick was admitted to the hospital for treatment for his substance abuse. Ewen and Elizabeth went on a lunch date. Jason admitted that he had kissed Elizabeth, so Sonny advised Jason to make a decision about his marriage. Jason explained that he couldn't file for divorce, but he wouldn't fight Sam if she decided that she wanted out of the marriage. Elizabeth admitted to Jason that she had some reservations about Ewen. Ewen's boss was revealed to be Jerry Jacks. Sam opened up to Alexis about Jason and John. Sam feared that she would never be able to forgive Jason, but she loved him too much to keep punishing him. Alexis suggested that sometimes it was an act of love to let a person go. Sonny paid Joe a visit in jail to get answers about Kate's baby. Joe claimed that the baby had died. Joe later spoke with Trey and insisted that the only way to take down Sonny and reclaim the Scully birthright was for Trey to marry Kristina. Trey was reluctant to go along with the plan, but Joe masterfully manipulated his son. Trey decided to scrap Mob Princess, so that he could pursue a relationship with Kristina. Kristina confided to Trey that her previous boyfriend had abused her. Lulu and Dante cleared the air after a heart-to-heart talk. Todd was stunned when Johnny revealed that he knew about the baby switch because two of his men had followed Heather on the night of the storm. Todd and Johnny reached an understanding. Shawn accused Alexis of being uptight, so Alexis challenged Shawn to a game of strip pool to prove him wrong. Sparks ignited between Alexis and Shawn. Mac urged Alexis to give Shawn a chance. Natalie took Liam to London after she received the picture of John and Sam kissing on the docks. John vowed that Todd would pay.

The Young and the Restless
What happened during the week of July 30, 2012
During a police interrogation, Tim admitted that Phyllis had paid him to leave town, but he would not reveal what she'd said in confidence in their therapy sessions. Tim later blackmailed Phyllis with a tape in which she confessed to the hit-and-run. Phyllis refused to have sex with Tim, but he wanted money and something from her. Michael planned to take Tim to court to force him to reveal what he knew about Phyllis' past. Nick remained oblivious to Phyllis being squeezed by Tim. Christine was stunned when Paul said he wanted to plead guilty to Ricky's murder. Billy and Traci learned that Jack was seizing power of Jabot and Beauty of Nature, forcing Ashley into a lesser role. Victor told Kyle about Jack's moved-up wedding date before Jack talked with his son, prompting Kyle to skip the wedding. Victor and Jack were trapped in an elevator together, but acted like gentleman, much to everyone's shock. The day of Nikki's wedding, Victor whisked Sharon to Las Vegas. On the jet, Sharon agreed to sign a generous pre-nup before a judge married her and Victor. Chelsea thought she might be pregnant, but it was a false alarm. Adam loved the idea of starting a family, and they began baby-making. Before marrying Jack, Nikki returned to the ranch to reminisce about her and Victor. Later, Victor stopped Nikki before walking down the aisle, and Sharon arrived to tell Nikki that she'd married Victor. Nikki wished them well, then proceeded to marry Jack. Adam learned of Sharon's marriage and was unaffected. At the ceremony, Jack was able to stand on his own two feet. Abby gave Kay a check to cover the losses from the arts gala. Ashley approved of Abby's gesture. John's spirit appeared to Jack and criticized him for his greedy ways. Jack rejected his father's advice. Because of Jack, Ashley decided to move to New York and take a leave of absence from Jabot. Tucker tearfully said goodbye to Ashley and their marriage. Victoria was furious with Billy for posting the Sharon/Victor wedding video on the Restless Style page. After going for a post-wedding horseback ride, Sharon was alarmed when Victor's horse returned to the stables, but he'd disappeared. Sofia turned down the New York job offer but resented Neil's tactics.
