Daytime Soap Opera Short Recaps
Recap written by Michele and Cheryl
Belle visited Brady and Eric in jail. She wasn’t surprised Eric was there because of the way he was acting lately. She wondered why Brady ended up in jail. Brady said Stefan didn’t give him a choice since Stefan was obsessed with Chloe. She understood how he felt, but she thought his actions were hard to defend. She turned to Eric and asked him what his excuse was to do what he did. Eric told her that he helped Brady do what needed to be done. Belle thought it was funny that he was concerned with being loyal to the family except when she’s involved. He couldn’t believe she was making the situation about her. She told him that he made it about her when he hit Shawn and questioned her judgement. Eric thought she was going to represent him. She informed him that he burned a bridge with her. She would defend Brady, but Eric was on his own. Eric went off on Belle so Brady got involved. Brady asked her to defend Eric. Belle refused to defend him. She told the guard to release Brady.
