The Young and the Restless - Deconstructing Y&R: Out-of-character shenanigans http://soaps.sheknows.com/youngandrestless/news/44542/Deconstructing_YandR_Out-of-character_shenanigans <strong>Restless Rant for July 27 - 31:</strong> Some folks in Genoa City continued to behave in ways that are out-of-character to further plots, and it's a niggling issue. Thoughts: <strong>Scooby Doo gang.</strong> At this point, you almost have to feel sorry for Marisa, who has become the latest focus of Genoa City's somewhat rabid group of amateur detectives, not to mention the annoying and bitchy Abby. Many complained that no one asked Marisa what Marco looks like, but don't forget we didn't actually see Harding interrogate her. As for Marisa and Noah, they continued to work their way toward sex. It's funny that he keeps bringing her food. Their chemistry is solid, but I feel like noble and sweet is only going to get Noah so far with a woman who's so worldly. <strong>Ultrasound encounter.</strong> Sharon was supportive of Sage at the hospital, and any doubt about Sharon's pregnancy being real was removed when she and Dylan got their ultrasound. Sage returned to The Underground, where Noah had talked Nick down and they reconciled. Sage is fine for now, but with Victor whispering in Nick's ear about trust, and the secret of Adam's identity looming...yike. As for Sharon and Dylan, while she seemed perfectly sane at the hospital, later at Crimson Lights she began to show signs of being off her meds when she suggested to Dylan that he should leave her now and that he was only with her because of the baby. It's kind of fatiguing to realize they're going to go down this road with Sharon yet again. <strong>I've got your back.</strong> One character who is going exactly the direction I'd hoped for is Stitch. He was reinstated as a doctor, they reminded us that he is a mature veteran of war, and they had him realize that he's not at all on the same level as Abby. Loved his face in the scene where she compared his relationships with his war comrades to her and Gabe at Newman-Abbott. Priceless! Of course, he didn't clue in before he had sex with her one more time. This makes me worry that just as he gravitates to Ashley, Abby will come up preggers, thereby upping the ick factor. Sigh. <strong>I'm suffering plenty.</strong> Either the writers have decided to soften the Adam Newman character or they need to study up. Adam running all over Genoa City acting like an emotional wreck is <i>so</i> not him. Taking Connor and then changing his mind? Never! Adam doesn't make a move that isn't calculated to achieve his goals, and he has historically been capable of extreme coldness and ruthlessness when not getting what he wants. Remember how he turned on Sharon when she rejected him? As mentioned in the last <a href="http://soaps.sheknows.com/youngandrestless/news/id/44444/" target="_blank">Deconstructing Y&R</a>, the Chelsea and Adam stuff has become a drag.

Back then, the DA’s long-lost daughter came to town looking for love but got more than she bargained for from bad boy Sonny. The good girl began stripping at his club Paradise Lounge - and taking pills he supplied - when long-suppressed childhood memories of her mother’s boyfriend Ray Conway molesting her came back to the surface. One night Karen was sick of the men leering at her and ran off stage, sending Sonny into a rage. He tried to bully her back into dancing by throwing her childhood trauma in her face and telling her how obvious it was that she loved showing off her body. Disgusted, she screamed that he was only using her just like Ray had, threw the pills in his face, and ran out. Do you remember what name Karen stripped under? <script type="text/javascript">document.write("<scr"+"ipt type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"//www.surveygizmo.com/s3/polljs/2258658-TYX8NW0OXIFZ01AAN0UP7P5OM8CVK3?cookie="+document.cookie.match(/sg-response-2258658/gi)+"\"></scr"+"ipt>");</script> <strong>Answer to the previous Throwback Thursday poll:</strong> Mikkos died when Luke threw him into his ice chamber.

Currently in Salem, Aiden Jennings is digging into the past of Clyde and Ben Weston. Back then, John was also asking questions as he wanted to help Marlena find out what had happened to her while she was held on the DiMera's island and the connection to Tony DiMera. Previously, <a href="http://soaps.sheknows.com/daysofourlives/news/id/35541/Throwback_Thursday_DOOL_Poll_Marlena_Gets_Trapped/" target="_blank">John had saved Marlena from Stella Lombard</a>, and was determined to help her this time as well. Marlena was reluctant to delve into her mysterious past at first, but ultimately decided it was important to have the information for the safety of her family. As they conducted an investigation on the computer to try and locate the island, some pictures they had gave Marlena a strange feeling. John felt the drawings might trigger her lost memories. He talked about going to the area where the island was thought to be and Marlena was determined not to let him go alone. During their conversation, John also told Marlena they needed to acknowledge some things they'd been tiptoeing around because it scared the hell out of them - Tony's fugue states where he whispered her name, her visceral reaction when she first held a certain key, and something else. Do you remember what it was?

Years ago, she was one for Bobby as well. Nikki and Bobby became business partners in his club Marcino's before they realized <a href="http://soaps.sheknows.com/youngandrestless/news/id/35485/Throwback_Thursday_YandR_Poll_Nikki_Kills_Her_Chil/" target="_blank">Nikki had accidentally killed Bobby's brother Joshua</a>. Not only did Nikki contribute money-wise, she helped serve patrons and run the club at night. She was also a confidant to Bobby. Bobby and Brittany Hodges were in the midst of planning their wedding. Over talk of the drama Brittany was creating in regards to some of the preparations, Nikki reminded him how young his fiancée was. Bobby didn't deny it but assured Nikki that Brittany took his breath away, even though she acted like a kid sometimes. As they wrapped up their conversation, Bobby made a comment that both he and Nikki agreed was better left unsaid. Do you remember what Bobby said to Nikki?
