    Forget me not. (
    Restless Rant
    Week of January 23 – 27:

    "Y&R" was pretty good this week on the whole. Loved seeing Jeff and Jill back in town - and a bit more of Paul! Thoughts on the week:

    Monday, Monday...
    We got a well-deserved break from the heavier drama on Monday with Nikki and Victor reuniting and making love, Phyllis and Nick’s heart-to-heart, Cane romancing Lily with roses and deep kisses, and Adam and Sharon’s passionate romp in Victor’s office. It was an interesting choice to have Sharon indulging in ‘all over the furniture’ sex, at the same time as Phyllis was electing to abstain from sex for the first time, well, maybe ever. Just sayin’!

    The sting.
    Love the little twists playing out in the business storyline! For instance, Adam managed to avoid the trap thanks to Sharon, but the twist is that he still found himself in a very unenviable position – working out of the men’s washroom! Which, by the way was a delicious/hilarious scene between Victor and Adam – did anyone else sense the actors were fighting to keep straight faces? Back to the storyline, Victor didn’t go the predictable route and rain fire and brimstone down on Sharon for her betrayal, but the twist is that she has undone all the good she did herself by marrying him in the first place and now has to worry about losing Faith all over again. Adam tried to convince Tucker to go through with hiring him as a means of getting out of the men’s washroom, but the twist is that Tucker will only pay him to stay where he is. Victor lost Beauty of Nature, not to Jack Abbott, but to his fiancée! Keep these twists and turns coming!

    Despite the fact that she keeps looking ill about what she’s done behind Jack’s back, I can’t manage to muster much sympathy for Genevieve. She did that ‘friendly intervention’ with Ashley, and strung Jack along whenever he talked about Beauty of Nature - she even looked at his bid. Pretty shady, lady! It looks like it will be a short-lived reunion for Gen and Cane too, after he confronts her about deceiving Jack. She’s risked her closest relationships to get her hands on this company, and has now pissed off Victor Newman to boot! Is it really worth it? Vote in our Genevieve buying Beauty of Nature poll.

    Straight up advice. (
    Ricky the rat.
    Ricky came off like a slimeball this week. Stealing from Paul? Really? Ugh.

    The usual suspects.
    While I got a kick out of the ‘suspects’ all seeing their needlepoint pillows, and the little gatherings in lock-up were entertaining, I really am anxious for the final wrap-up of the Diane murder case, which should be coming as Patty becomes more volatile (love watching her unravel!). The reveal that Deacon smashed Diane in the head with the rock was kind of bizarre.

    Be on your guard.
    I love that Jill is back and acting as a voice of reason in the Chelsea debacle. It feels good to know she won’t let Billy and Victoria go soft where the con artist is concerned. Can’t wait to see her go up against Chelsea’s mom! Woot! Check out our Melissa Claire Egan interview.

    Hooligan’s Island.
    Okay, I’ll admit to laughing out loud at Angelina messing up the name of “Gilligan’s Island,” but otherwise, my stance on the character remains the same. Angelo was particularly distasteful and thug-like this week – can’t wait until Jeffrey gets his mojo back. The sudden 'amnesia' is interesting... By the way, a Facebook friend (thanks, Damon!) pointed out that the scene with Jeff riding back into Genoa City was very reminiscent of the opening scene of "The Young and the Restless" back when the soap debuted. If you want to see for yourself, watch The Young and the Restless’s first scene.

    It's nice to see Jill back on the screen but will Jill really be a part of the Chelsea & Villy story? I'm not so sure. They have her show up here and there but then she seems to disappear again.

    Ever since Hogans Sheffer arrived as part of the Y&R writing team he has been writing around Jill, & Jill out of her own life. She is not longer in the GC business scene, she isn't part of Billy or the Abbott's life, now GenV has replaced her with Cane & Lilly. They fired Colin so she has no love interest on the cast.

    It seems to coincide with the weakening of all the Y&R female characters. I guess Jill could be his most hated character, and the one he wants to eliminate, since she was a fierce, determined, ambitious,smart, savvy career woman. and one of the most experienced in daytime.

    Kay is getting on in years and could use a CEO at Chancellor Industrious, but they have Kay looking like no one but Neil could help her. How ridiculous. Jill doesn't want to attend Jack/GenV's wedding cause she feels they don't know each other well enough? What a joke. Billy is standing up, Cane and Lilly, are there,.. of course she would go. They are writing Jill to be offscreen -they are NOT writing JILL the character.

    I agree with you Candice that this was an interesting week. What is Gen thinking keeping her company a secret from Jack? Is she really in love with him? Now it's causing a new rift between her & Cane. Poor Jack just found someone he thought he could trust, and isn't he even a bit suspicious that Patty is once again pretending to be Emily?
    Did anyone else notice that during Adam's & Sharon's love scene that Adam wasn't shown without his shirt? Maybe he doesn't work out - hmmmmm? I still say nobody does love scenes like Phyliss!
    I'm glad to see Jill back & not falling for Chelsea's line.She might save Villy from making a very bad mistake.

    I get a kick out of Angelena, the actress makes the character real. Can't wait to see the reaction when Glo sees Jeff again. Angelo might take a hit out on him.

    Still don't understand why Gen bought BoN. Was it for herself to run? A gift to Jack? I am inclined to think it was for herself. The previews for next week show Cane unset becasue she lied to jack. Don't know why he is so upset. Looks like Jill and Chelsea's mom might tangle when she arrives. Jill wil be a good watchdog for Billy and Victoria. Is Chelsea really pregnant? If so, was the DNA test tampered with and it is not Billy's baby? Jeff really did look lost and bewildered. Angelina is cute and plays her part well, but the storyline is just nuts.

    DNA tests are easily altered in GC so I'm not totally convinced the baby is Billy's. Victor could work magic from his jail cell. If anyone but Sharon had betrayed him the way she did he would have had their head, even if it had been one of his own children. Look how he treats Adam. How can any man treat his son in such a despicable manner no matter what he has done.

    Adam and Sharon make me want to puke Sharon is one of the stupidest woman on this earth I don’t like her character for a mother of two on the show how could you be with a man who hid your child from you for all the year a man who let you stay in jail. Every time I see her and Adam together I want to turn off my TV they make me sick the roll Sharon plays stop doing that to her it not real that a woman would do that.

    Would the writers PLEASE give Paul a break?! His daughter is unlikeable, his son is slimy, sleazy, and totally despicable, and his sister is mentally challenged. His relationships with women don't last more than a couple of months. Paul is a handsome, kind and intelligent man who treats women with love and respect (i.e. Nikki, even after she dumped him for Victor). C'mon writers, you can do better than this - are you trying to make us believe that nice guys really do finish last?
