Erica's hard-won freedom is short-lived, as David manages to convince everybody that she's gone crazy. To be fair, Erica doesn't exactly help her own cause when she STABS DAVID in the chest! So David's life is on the line, and so is Erica's freedom. Look for her to be shuttled off to Oak Haven, where she runs into a trio of familiar faces currently locked up there. Yep, this week, Janet Green, Annie Chandler, and Marian Colby are all back -- and they're looking to break out just as much as Erica is.
As mentioned, David gets stabbed in the chest this week, and it's looking grim. He tells Griffin that he has to survive, because if he doesn't, the Orpheus Project is at risk. But what does that mean? This week, what Griffin knows -- or doesn't know -- about David's plan is going to drive a wedge between him and Kendall. The choice for Griffin becomes clear: David or Kendall?
Dixie's out of captivity now, and she's come face-to-face with JR ... only he's too drunk to realize she's real! JR's downward spiral really escalates this week, including heated confrontations with Krystal, Scott, and Tad. So where is Dixie during all of this? She ends up in Oak Haven, too! Just in time for Tad to make a visit...
Amanda is tied up in knots waiting for her test results. This week, Jake confirms that she does have cancer, and Amanda will have to reach out for help as she's in the fight of her life.
Plus: Jesse gets the DNA results that prove Maya is Lucy's mother. What's Jesse going to do now to keep the truth from coming out?
And look at what's coming for Pine Valley in August:

Amanda will deal with her cancer diagnosis with some help from her mom, Janet.
Tad and Dixie are reunited! But what does that reunion mean for Cara, whose feelings for Tad have been real ... and reciprocated.
Look for Josh Duhamel to return as Leo du Pres.
