    Getting creepy. (CBS)
    Restless Rant for the week of January 13 - 17:

    The main storylines continued to grow tenser as February sweeps looms. Thoughts:

    Spidey senses.
    The hit-and-run story is definitely building to the approaching climax. The scene is being set for Jack and Victor to face-off over Connor with Chloe being the wild card. Billy is noticing too many coincidences having to do with Adam and Delia's death, and Kevin will soon have the license plate information to put together with Billy's suspicions. Chloe's obsession with Connor is so eerie! Whose side will you be on if Victor and Jack clash over Connor? Let Soaps.com know by voting in our Y&R Poll: Clash over Connor.

    Blinders off.
    Nikki has really been standing up to Victor where Dylan's concerned - love it. He's so rude about her newfound son, though, that it makes you wonder why she stays with him. Anyway, following Avery's failed attempt at re-creating New Year's Eve, it was decided that she and Dylan would hit the road to find Ian Ward together. The stress this is causing Nikki potentially gives Victor more ammunition against Dylan - he can blame him for upsetting her and possibly exacerbating her MS symptoms. Ian Ward being found and coming to town is even more of a disaster waiting to happen, yet this storyline still doesn't have many viewers talking. There are those who hope that Ward's arrival will lead to the discovery that Dylan's not his son after all, but Paul's. Now that would be a heck of a twist - not only because Ward would have been brought to town to wreak havoc unnecessarily, but because it would make Victor's head spin exorcist-style. Chris wouldn't be too happy either. The glitch is that if Nikki and Paul knew it was a possible that he could be the father, you'd think one of them would have mentioned it by now. Boo.

    Offer not accepted.
    So it looks like Tyler and Abby have themselves a true bunny-boiler on their hands in Mariah. I assumed it was she who sabotaged their dream house deal. Unfortunately, Abby becomes more annoying with each scene she's in, she and Tyler are too watered down as a couple, and the storyline is uninspired.

    All the frou-frou.
    Wow, so Leslie is really balking at the idea of marriage despite having accepted Neil's proposal. Though her moody-girl thing is becoming a little tired, her reluctance does have me wondering what's going on with her - is she just pushing it away because she's afraid she'll embrace the idea and it will go bad like everything else in her life did before?


    Loose cannon. (CBS)
    Call me muffin.
    When Summer brought Fen muffins it made one curious as to why she even was bothering with the moody little so-and-so. Fen sulked until she left and then sulked some more. Gah. Later, of course, he was the one Summer called when she was going into congestive heart failure. Instead of phoning someone at the photo shoot location to find her right away, Fen and his ankle monitor made the illegal trek across town. Ultimately, Sharon discovered Summer at the bottom of the stairs and had flashbacks to Phyllis, which was kind of a cool beat to play, or really dumb, depending on your perspective. In any case, it will be interesting to see if Summer recalls anything Sharon said when she wakes up. Also pushing the Sharon's secret story forward was the tension between Nick and Jack at the hospital, and Jack overhearing Sharon in the chapel. There have been so many near-confessions from Sharon now it's becoming a joke. Maybe one more good showdown with Imaginary Cassie will do the trick?

    Uncomfortable.
    Well it's only a matter of time before Kelly lets it come out that she slept with Billy - that woman is a total loose cannon - forever discussing what happened at the top of her lungs in public places and Billy's house. Yike!

    Call 911.
    As predicted, Noah acted like a big lunkhead over getting dumped and interfered in Courtney's undercover operation.

    What's your vision?
    Devon, Cane, and Lily bickering over how to decorate the Club? Just no.

    Mark my words. Kelly is pregnant. She won't know if it's her husband or Billy. New storyline.

    I'm not liking Kelly the way she yells and carries on when she know's Victoria is close and mit over hear her and Billy. She is really trying to tell Victoria and I think this is what she did to Stitch and his wife. She just wants to break up a marriage. Don't like her character at all.

    I wish it would just come out that Kelly killed Dehlia. I know they have to do something drastic because Billy and Adam are leaving the show but Kelly needs to leave too. Just don't want it to be Adam that Killed Dehlia.

    I guess my soap watching buddies and I fell asleep when Billy and Kelly had sex. The only thing we remember was they took off their tops,fell on her sofa and kissed, then jumped up apologizing to each other for ALMOST having sex.

    Don't you guy remember when Paul gave Nicky std or she gave it to him so yes Dylan could be his son. This happened back in the day when they lived with Ian Ward.

    Team Jack one hundred percent. It's about time Victor learns that his family members are not his possessions, especially a innocent little baby.

    And good call about Nikki and Victor, I have never gotten why she keeps going back to him when Victor NEVER changes. Same thing with Nick and Victoria too, how many times have they written off their dad only to go crawling right back to him? I don't get it.

    Will Billy have yet ANOTHER baby with a woman who is not his wife? If Kelly is pregnant, this would be baby number three for him.

    If Sharon had half a brain (???) she would send Nick another note from the lab saying the results may have been compromised and he should run the test again. That way she could stay out of the whole thing entirely and Nick would never know what she did unless she tells him (or Phyllis wakes up). At this point, the pain Nick and Summer are in now and the pain Jack will be in later is too much to bear.

    I hate that Michael Muhney is leaving. Chloe is becoming unglued. Chelsea will flip when her world falls apart (again) just when it looks like it's all perfect. Run Chelsea, run!!!

    Loose cannon is a perfect description for Kelly. I guess she is a serial marriage breaker -- first Stitch, now Billy. I wonder if the two men will bond over her, or if she will kidnap one or both of them. She has Sheila tendencies.

    I would love it if Dylan were Paul's. It would give him another shot at fatherhood, and would mess with his marriage, as well as Nikki's. Plus then Dylan wouldn't be stuck with a psycho for a bio dad. I still don't get why he is so obsessed with finding this monster though.

    I was hoping Lily and Cane would open a homeless shelter or something. The club story is inane.

    Clearly Leslie does not want to get married.

    I don't like the Kelly situation it took billy's heartache and turned it into a mess. I really don't like it why can't him and Victoria have a normal fun life like they had when they first started out?

    The storylines involving any aspect of the Winters' family have been dead ends. The toppers have been the Gus/Rose/Tyler/Devon. Makes NO sense that Katherine left so much money to Devon. MM said he had just filmed a sad goodbye to Chelsea and Conner when he was fired. Will be interesting to see where the storyline goes from there. Did the writers anticipate he leaving before this? Yes, Sharon's part in the Summer storyline is overdone. End the story and make the reveal. Poor Jack. His heart is always in the right place. Noah is such a weak character. Courtney seems to be undercover. She is reluctant so she must have struck a deal with the police. Don't want Alex to be a dirty cop. Whole storyline with his introduction to GC was lame, sister and all. Hope Ashley isn't paired with Stitch. She is too old for him. That would be regressing for her. Also think things are gearing up for Paul being Dylan's father. Heavens, another Nikki/Victor split in the air. Repeat. Abby/Tyler is a loser couple. Tyler doesn't fit wwith Abby Newman. Her character has come a long way from the Naked Heiress but this?

    Isn't time for Victor to pay? Kind if a peeve of mine. Think Tyler's ex is there or not because of him. Victoria such a dope, setup Billy for the gambling thing, is Kelly on his payroll? Victoria doesn't have Reed because of Daddy.
    He brought Patty back and Coleen died, but not in vain because Victor got her heart. What will he do to Dylan or is he doing it? If Jacks plan works good but it is not enough pay back and that is what soaps are about!
    I am taking a break, the Delia story is too cruel! Maybe it is just time to stop!
