    Secret. (CBS)
    Restless Rant
    Week of April 8 – 12:


    It's a mixed review this week for "Y&R" - still dull part of the time. What's up with that?

    Is that a 'no'?
    Note to Nick – if the woman has to 'sort out her feelings' before agreeing to marry you, and everyone is questioning why you proposed (near death experience, Dylan’s return), the wedding probably 'ain't gonna' happen', as your father would say. Avery clearly has unfinished business with Dylan. I knew as soon as Nick lectured Avery about not knowing how it feels to be a parent, that she’d had a baby, or lost one, and then off she went to find Dylan and asked if he thought about their baby. Bam. The idea of Dylan and Avery getting back together is vaguely intriguing – but I worry that after the initial passion of reconnecting, they’d be shacked up in Snoozeville. Dylan’s sexy, but his personality needs a jolt or something – and why is it that 'SuperMac' knows what to say to everyone else about their life, but doesn’t seem to have a clue what to do about his own?

    Off limits.
    I saw nothing in Nick’s behavior toward Kyle that hinted at knowing he and Summer were half-siblings – I think that ship’s sailed. Summer developing stalker-like tendencies over Kyle has definite potential if you consider his attraction to Phyllis, and factor in the likelihood of Phyllis being due for another spell of self-destructive behavior. Kyle and Phyllis hooking up would be a betrayal on a fairly grand scale – to both Summer and Jack. Who knows if the storyline is headed this direction, but if it is, it’s probably not going to work with a recast Kyle.

    Cop’s girlfriend.
    Abby bringing Alex lunch at the station was cute – and he forgot she was in the break room! He is just the kind of guy she needs to keep her grounded. It was also funny this week when Abby, formerly The Naked Heiress, got all in an uproar over Summer getting naked – if only Ashley had been there to hear her!

    Victor Newman makes his own luck.
    Excellent contrast this week with Victor flexing his muscles with Wheeler, while softening toward Adam. In fact, it’s been fun seeing everyone make nice with Adam - you know from his facial expressions and one-liners he’s taking devilish delight in every minute of it, while simultaneously soaking in the desperately wanted acceptance. The best scene was when Victoria learned that Adam and Victor had made up and were planning to work together. You could practically hear her gnashing her teeth!

    As for Victor and Wheeler, their clashes made for some intense scenes – and as a bonus, the last one paved the way for Victor to put Jack on notice that their rivalry was back on in a big way.

    Happy families.
    I get Tyler’s suspicions about Gus – the change in him seems too good to be true. People generally don’t change so drastically, particularly when they’ve spent twelve years in prison. I wonder if he'll revert to his old ways? In any case, Tyler’s emotional upheaval is legit, but kissing Lily? Whoopsie! It will be interesting to see how she reacts given Cane’s recent warning about Tyler using his family issues to draw her in.


    Turfing out Adriana. (CBS)
    It’s time.
    I’ve no idea why Jill is being written to be so abrasive that Katherine can’t even confide in her about what she’s going through - it still niggles that Jill wouldn’t have noticed on her own…and where the hell is Murphy? Thankfully Adriana’s gone – also convenient for Chloe and Kevin because everyone will just assume she fenced the stolen charity items. As for Katherine’s diagnosis, as Cane said, at least now we know what we’re dealing with. Wow!

    Stealing from the rich…
    Kevin and Chloe casing Billy and Victoria’s house while dropping off Delia? New low. Stinky. Horrid.

    Baby talk.
    There have been cute moments, but, yeah, Billy and Victoria doing nothing but talking about kids, babies, and fertility treatments isn't exactly gripping material. They need more.

    The baby trap.
    I'm so over listening to Chloe and Chelsea chirp about duping a baby daddy. Obviously it's going to happen, so get on with it. Chelsea slept with Adam months ago (New Year’s) and was with Dylan a couple of weeks ago, so it’s a bit of a stretch to even pass it off as Dylan’s baby. Regardless, Adam's bound to demand a paternity test. Ye gad.

    On some level you know…
    I bet Michael’s regretting his suggestion that Christine should take over as the D.A. Hehe. But Michael has bigger fish to fry – a fish named Carmine, in fact – although he hasn’t quite figured that out yet. It won’t be long now – all it should take is a conversation between him and Paul. Yike. What should Michael do if he finds out about Carmine and Lauren? Vote in Soaps.com's Y&R Michael's Next Move poll.

    One of the only reasons why I'm even watching at the moment is the Summer paternity issue. Something better happen there & ASAP.

    Tyler is an angry person. He dislikes Gus for his past. He can't get past it. He is not the pillar of dignity either. He has went after Lily since day one despite the fact that she is married with children and has beeb warned to stay away. Cane should confide in Neil about his girlfriend's brother. Don't know if the storyline will dictate any future untrustworthiness where Gus is concerned or not. Gus obviously did not respect his wife and Tyler doesn't respect Lily's marriage. Lily responding to the kiss was out of character for Lily. Why do this? The women on this show are weak and manipulative as written. Tyler and Summer make me mad with their escapades. I can see a possible twist coming with Gus to justify Tyler's mistrust for him. I wish they would tank that whole storyline. I can see Paul confronting Lauren again and getting her to admit her affair. Will it be too late for MIchael's marriage? Can't see how Victor can just take a job at Newman. Watch your backs Jack and Adam. Ruthless is on the offensive again.

    Who's writing the "weekly rant" on Y&R???? I've noticed a lot of mistakes this week, on the daily updates and also in this rant! Plus there's a lot of "opinion" in this rant! This isn't Candace, it's got to be a lackey!

    1st, why would Nick be the one to figure out Summer's paternity???? Other sites are saying that her paternity is going to come into question. I believe it's going to be something between Phyllis and Jack. Nick loves Summer so much, he would never be the one to figure it out!!! His head is in the clouds! That's normal for Nick! Who writes this stuff?????? I mean on this site!!!

    What's this crap about people not changing??? I know this is just a soap and if you are talking about people "not" changing on soaps, maybe, but Gus has had 12 years to think about his life. What else is there to do in jail? So, I think it's easy to think he can change. Maybe he went to classes and therapy in jail? I don't think it's that far fetched! I know this is a soap, but people do change. They have to want to change, but there are people who "DO" turn their lives around. Shame on you!
