A look at Genoa City for the week of March 3 - 7:
After the brief intrigue of Chloe running off to Paris with Connor and Ian Ward's arrest, "Y&R" was back to being 'middle-of-the-road' this week. Thoughts:
A brief seance.
Cassie's lookalike must have taken a vacation this week - there was no follow-up on the photo-bombing scare. This gave Sharon time to get even closer to Nick, of course, so that when the DNA secret comes out it will be even more devastating to him. Sometimes it seems the truth will never be revealed! When it does, I wonder if Nick will remember all these conversations he and Sharon had about Summer's paternity when she had a chance to come clean. Bottom line: Hoping this storyline picks up the pace.
Cleaning up messes.
There are a variety of opinions out there as to why, but some viewers still feel that NuOldBilly has seemed like a fish out of water in his own storyline at times. It was almost awkward to see him threaten Stitch. Moving forward, if the writing accommodates this different version of Billy, it will probably work out fine. As for the storyline, the conflict has been very believable, with Victoria all over the place with her feelings, and Billy desperate to get back on solid ground in his marriage. Unfortunately, meeting Kelly and not telling Victoria probably hasn't helped his situation!
It's possible Noah is more afraid of his girlfriend these days than he is of his grandpa. Too funny!
I'll always love you.
If the music box storyline wasn't connected to Katherine, and didn't include the top-notch banter of Jill, Colin, and Esther, and Jill and Colin's sexual chemistry, it might be tedious - especially if you're not feeling the World War II theme. Fortunately, it has all of those elements, so as long as the mystery itself stays interesting and moves at a strong pace, it's all good. Loved Jill calling Colin 'Kangaroo Boy'!
No point even thinking about that...
Lily's forceful new attitude has people talking, especially given that only weeks ago she was so happy after having dodged a cancer scare. It's one thing for a character to become a bit edgier, and her attitude toward Hilary can be understood, but lately it seems like her intensity may be signaling that more is going on. Angrily confronting Tyler and Abby because Leslie dumped Neil, for example, was a tad eyebrow-raising. She even snapped at Cane at the end of Friday's show. Do you think Lily's just a little edgier, or is something bigger going on with her? Vote in Soaps.com's Y&R Poll: Is something up with Lily? Vote!
