    Michael and Lauren make-out at home. Jamie comes to the door and says he's headed to a group home that he has been to before. He doesn't want to go back there - he wants to stay at home. Michael promises to make some calls. Fen comes in as Lauren is giving Jamie a hug. He's not impressed, but invites Jamie to play a video game when prompted by Michael. Fen reappears and Lauren tells him they may ask Jamie to stay with them. When they propose the idea to Jamie, he says it's not why he came. Fen insists he stay. Jamie assures Fen he's not after his life. Fen tells his parents he's going to study for a chemistry test, but Jamie knows there's not one. Outside the door, Fen calls Summer. He tells Jamie he's going to see her for her birthday. Later, Lauren finds a throwaway cellphone in Fen's backpack. She and Michael wonder what he's using it for.


    Avery spots Nick and Summer at On The Boulevard for Summer's birthday. Avery has a business dinner and says she'll see them tomorrow. Nick gives Summer a gift - keys to a car that's parked outside. He says he and Phyllis agreed she'll make good decisions going forward. Avery reappears - her client canceled. Nick says Phyllis was delayed in Chicago. Avery joins them. Phyllis comes in and sees them. She brings the cake over and hugs Summer. Avery and Nick exchange awkward looks. Avery goes and Phyllis gives Summer an infinity charm. Phyllis and Nick chat tensely when Summer steps away. When Summer takes off in her car, Nick and Phyllis agree they did everything right when it comes to Summer.

    Jill comes downstairs and Katherine is still on the sofa. Jill tells her faking it again won't work, but then realizes she's really unconscious! Katherine comes around. Jill questions her and then calls the doctor. The doctor arrives and checks her over with a follow-up planned for next week. Katherine blames the episode on Jill's deplorable taste in men. Jill says that's not what this is about - she's 300 years old! Jill tells Katherine the issues with Tucker are making her sick - she has no idea how to fix it. Katherine admits she's ashamed of Tucker. Jill adds, "And you're ashamed of the part you played in making him who he is." Katherine tells her to stop talking about Tucker. Jill says Tucker wants a relationship with his mother - and urges her to admit she wants the same thing.

    Leslie and Neil enter On The Boulevard debating about him quitting Jabot. He doesn't know what's going on with Jack. Leslie gives him a pep talk. Neil can't imagine Jack's reaction when he suggests they go with Tyler's campaign. Leslie smiles. She loves his passion and conviction. "You can't just walk away Neil." Neil decides he should give Jack time.

    At home, Jack finds out his pill-popping is big news. Kyle asks, "Is something wrong?" Jack shows Kyle the online article and blames Victor for the lies. Kyle says they're not lies - he does take pain killers. Jack warns Kyle about talking to press. Kyle suggests they hold off on rolling Jabot into Newman - he's in over his head. Jack protests. Kyle wonders why he couldn't just have been happy at Jabot where he belongs. Kyle says taking over Newman was personal, not business. Jack realizes Kyle is behind the article. Kyle says he was trying to save his life! He tells Jack he has a serious problem and is the only parent he has left. Later, Phyllis arrives angry over almost missing Summer's birthday. She hollers at Jack to get help - she's done covering for him!

    At Jabot, Leslie tells Neil that resuming their professional relationship rules out the other possibilities. He jokes that he did officially resign and hasn't taken it back yet. "Nice try."

    Summer lets Fen into the tackhouse - she's about to open his gift. He says it's not from him. There's a card from Jamie apologizing for awkwardly kissing her. Outside, Jamie freezes. Fen asks, "Jamie kissed you?"

    Nick arrives at Avery's place and they discuss Phyllis. He thinks something might be brewing with her and Jack.

    Adam, looking miserable, tells Sharon that Jack has a weakness and all he has to do is exploit it.

    Well, just like I stated. Lauren and Michael will take in Jamie. Which is a very nice jester.

    Wow, Hilda and Nick gave Summer a car. This is the same girl that ran down Chelsea and killed her unborn child. Makes on sense at all.

    What's with this soap where everybody thinks someone wants their life. Hilda thinks Avery wants hers and Fen thinks Jamie wants his. Both Fen and Hilda are miserable. Who in their right mind wants to be them.

    Jill said Katherine was 300 years old. Oh my God, that's funny.

    Hilda, stop lying. You are not mad for almost missing Summer's birthday. You are mad that Avery and Nick were together with Summer.

    Wish my parents bought me a new car on my 16th B-day, much less one after I wreck it and killed a baby. WTH? At least wait till she can buy her OWN car and get a job!

    Oh - Oh - another mention about Jack being the one who delivered Summer in the elevator! Looks to me like JFP is moving toward "revealing" that JACK is really Summer's biological father - so that Summer can move toward having a romantic relationship with Noah, someone whom Summer grew up believing was her biological brother. If TIIC end up going in that direction, I give Y&R about two more years of life. And I doubt very much that there will be any long-time viewers who will be interested in tuning back in for the Y&R finale if the major question on viewers' minds will be whether or not Summer and Noah can live happily ever after in spite of their disapproving families!

    RE: Posted by cscog161nyy at Thursday - @HeyMon, most of the people on this forum can relate to Sharon, because lets face it, they are probably just like her. How else can you explain watching the show 11-18-12, and still be stupid enough to say,"Sharon didn't start the fire"? Just like the ones who keep trying to make excuses for Sharon.

    ~~~For a moment I thought we were invaded by the Valedictorian of the Stupid Ignorant class. What makes the dumbschitt you posted "word" since it's inept to and lacking differentiating soap from reality.

    I don't attack posters BUT I take offense that you know nothing but is brazen enough to insert such a stupid azz comment.

    Maybe you need to go back to you Ouija board and come up with something sensible and not attacking

    And to admin, she started it by baiting. I'll take the punishment but I don't like baiters.

    Kyle: You have more sense than Smiling Jack. I am glad you are the one who informed the press. Jack isn't a happy camper, but give him time, he will cool down.

    Teenager hits Adam and Chelsea's car causing her to lose the baby. Then, her OH, SO RIGHT PARENTS give her a reward...A NEW CAR. Are they crazy or what?

    Summer needs to get a JOB and work after school, that is, if she EVER remains in school long enough. I would hate to see her grades. She will probably flunk out this session. Wonder if they will take away her car.

    Oh, Broomhida! Your fangs are out and the green-eyed monster has reared its head up. You are so jealous of Avery. Not saying I like Nick and Avery as a couple.

    Lauren and Michael: PLEASE check Fen's disposable phone. You might get lucky and be able to see his texts and calls. Is tht even possible in today's world? IDK

    Jack went to work much too soon. He never gave his back surgery heal and is so heavy on drugs.

    I don't get it. On October 18, 2012, Sharon Needy Newman poured some booze all over the drapes, got a crazed look on her face, and then lit the drapes on fire. On the 19th, Adam came into the scene, saw Sharon collapsed on the floor, and took her to the Tack House.

    So what gives?
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>... />
    About the stinkin fire, I could not locate the 10/18/12 episode on the internet to view again. What I do remember was that Sharon was the only person at the ranch. I don't remember why everyone including the staff was gone. She in a drunken stupor, breaks into the ranch, hallucinates about the Neumans picking on her, throws around booze and lights up the curtains. She remains in the house while the place is literally going down in flames and miraculously does not get burned or suffer smoke inhalation.

    Then POOF! Adam appears out of nowhere and takes Sharon out of the house and back to her home. It also appeared to me that he was unusually calm and did not call 911 for quite a while. It was as if he wanted the house to burn down to the ground first. My question is why was Adam at the ranch in the first place? I think he said something about him looking for Victor, but it didn’t sound convincing to me at all. Besides Sharon, Adam is the only person who had motive to destroy the Newman family home because all the Newmans had recently rejected him for the millionth time. I also remember that he did not tell Sharon she burned down the ranch. She said she did it and he did not deny it. My thoughts: I think he may have burned down the ranch and is letting Sharon believe she did it, because he knew that everyone would suspect her anyway—and it would take the focus off him. Maybe that’s why he sacrificed his marriage and hired people (arsonist) to help him get Sharon off the hook. Also let’s consider the fact that he may have hired and paid off the shrink to convince her she was bi-polar so that if caught, the Newmans and the law might go easy on her. Even though he is so in love with Sharon, let’s not forget, he’s done worse things to her in the past when he was so-called in love with her. Like Tina said, “What’s love got to do with it.”

    The Lovely Sharon has been WRITTEN and she acts the part and lines she is GIVEN. Her acting is SUPERB.

    If you want to blame anyone, blame the WRITERS, not us for loving her character.

    Lay off my girl, Sharon.

    It's a darned FANTASY, not real life.

    That was a crass and judgmental Poster to have written that comment.
