I started watching Y and R just after Cassie died, when that whole drama started. I started watching it because it was my grandma's favourite soap, and after she passed, it was something I felt could keep me close to her.
Lately though, I've been feeling a little confused. Since I don't know the history of a lot of these characters, recent events, and threads on this board have left me with more questions than answers.
I guess mainly the storylines that I am the most interested in learning more about would be:
1) Phyliss, what exactly has she done in the past to give her the reputation that she has? I know about her taking advantage of Nick's grief, but there seems to be more in her past then I know of.
2) Lauren and Michael/Paul/Brad/Sheila(?): I have a lot of questions about her past. She apologized to Colleen's mom at the funeral for the way she behaved when she was a teenager, and the way she behaved in her 20s. There's something about her having a relationship with Brad??
3) Victor/Ashley/Brad/Abbey: How is Victor Abbey's father? what happened there???
That's all for now, I know that the best way to get the history of a soap is to ask its fans, so any information you could give me would be appreciated. My only goal is to be slightly less confused in the future :D
