David really is determined to make everyone's life miserable in Pine Valley -- as if that's any surprise. But Amanda and Jake are the central focus of his wrath this week. Amanda has agreed to David's condition to move in with him so she can help raise her own son -- and keep everyone she loves out of jail. But since Jake's barred from seeing the baby, this means that Jake and Amanda's marriage could be heading towards a disaster zone (David even forces her to remove her wedding ring). But this is Janet Dillon's daughter we’re talking about, and she's not going to take David's orders without a fight. Operation: Take Down David begins.
Zach's on the case of Stuart's killer something fierce this week as he shifts his attentions to little Emma. He knows she's the key to exposing Annie as the real culprit. Weirdly enough, Zach manages to make some inroads with Annie this week. Everything goes haywire, though, when Emma ends up going missing. Annie better be worried, not only because of her daughter's disappearance, but of what she might say to the person that finds her.
And as if forcing your daughter to lie about murder for you wasn't enough to send Annie to the 9th circle of hell, she's gotta go up and kiss Scott this week. You know, her fiance's NEPHEW. But quelle scandalle ... Scott seems to like it. Things are about to get very interesting.
Erica prepares to do her "New Beginnings" episode all about her journey to Africa, but her evil producers tell her that's boring and want to do a makeover show instead. So what does Erica do? Tells them to stuff it and does the show as she wants! Would you expect any less from Erica Kane? Unfortunately, the move gets her fired. Any TV shows need a new host? (we heard The View is using guest co-hosts while Elizabeth’s on maternity leave).
All this plus Madison manages to completely screw up the Hubbard family by causing tension for Jesse and Frankie AND Frankie and Randi (all while making Angie want to push her out the nearest window), Taylor questions her future with Tad, and JR comes clean with Marissa about his cancer.
