    Brad tells them that it's all over, and he'd like them to stop worrying now, but JT disagrees and reminds them of Brad's true identity. After some discussion, JT agrees to keep quiet about Brad's past.



    Back at the Newman ranch, Sharon and Nick arrive home. Nikki greets them and while Nick leaves for some take out from Gina's, Sharon tells Nikki that she doesn't want to discuss her ordeal.



    Phyllis and Michael share breakfast at Gina's. She gushes about her happiness with Nick, and Michael gives her his support. He shares the news about John having a massive stroke and being on life support, and Phyllis is dispirited and her mood changes.


    At Memorial Hospital, the Doctor tells the family that John will remain in a vegetative state. He suggests they take him off life support, but Gloria isn't budging. She refuses, in the hopes that John will come back to them.

    At the Winter's place, it's morning when Neil finally comes in the door, after spending the night at The Athletic Club. A livid Dru yells, ...Were you with Carmen last night?... Neil denies being with Carmen, and when Lily comes in, they both are honest, telling Dru that they were at the Athletic Club. Dru is full of apologies, and leaves for work.

    After Dru leaves for work, Devon and Lily talk about Dru, wondering if she'll be okay. They discuss her marriage and their parents, laughing that they have to take care of their parents!


    At the hospital, the Doctor explains that Gloria is his patient advocate. Jack tries to get her to do what John what have wanted. Billy is angry with his mother, feeling that they need to 'pull the plug', because that man in the hospital bed isn't his father. With that, he storms off.


    Nick arrives at Gina's and Phyllis spies him, running to greet him in an enveloping embrace. Each tells the other how happy they are to be together again, and are very loving with one another. Nick lets Phyllis know that he's there to pick up food for Sharon, and will be going back out to the ranch. Phyllis understands, and they agree to celebrate in private later!

    After everyone leaves, Brad tells Rebecca that he killed both men. He tells her his name, and they discuss their future. They're not sure that they're ever going to be safe again. Rebecca is surprised to learn that Brad thinks that it wasn't the Reliquary that was what they wanted but what was inside. She apologizes to him for all these years of hiding, but he assures her that he wouldn't be the man he was today if it weren't for her.


    Colleen, JT and Abby arrive at the hospital. Billy and Colleen share a bittersweet reunion, and it dawns on her that if Billy is there, it must be bad. Jack tells Colleen the news, and she breaks down.


    In John's room, Abby visits. She tells her Grandfather about her trip, the real coconuts she had, her new taste for fish, and how she thinks he'd like it!

    Colleen enters the room, and tells Abby that since her Uncle Billy is there, she may want to visit with him, as well. Abby holds her Grandpa's hand to her face, telling him she loves him, and leaves the room.

    Colleen sits to talk with John. Through tears, she expresses her sorrow that this happened and that she couldn't be there sooner. She tells him, ...I'll never forget what you taught me.... Ashley comforts her and she rushes out of the room to check on Abby.

    In tears, Ashley tries to say goodbye. ...Thank-you, for everything.... She tells John that he's both her father and her mother and has never doubted his love for him. She holds his hand and tells him over and over, ...I love you....

    Brad calls Sharon to inquire about her emotional health. She is a little shaky but tells him she feels better, and thanks him for his help. He offers his services if she needs to talk to him, and as he talks to Sharon, Victoria listens in.

    When Brad hangs up with Sharon, Victoria tells him that she doesn't think that Sharon needs him. She asks him to be open with her, telling him that they need this, if their marriage is to last. He admits that he and Sharon's feelings go beyond friendship, but reassures her that he is with Victoria for the long haul. The couple shares a kiss.


    Another Doctor is called, giving the family the same opinion the other Doctor did. It is her opinion that John will never regain consciousness. He is still alive only due to the life support system that he's on now. Still, Gloria is unconvinced.



    At the ranch, Sharon is asleep on the sofa, having a nightmare. She is startled awake when Nick comes home with the food. She implores both Vikki and Nick to leave, but as Nikki leaves, he sticks around.


    Brad comes to the door, telling Nick that the two have some unfinished business. He asks Nick to keep quiet about Brad's past. He explains how he is not sure if they're safe. Sharon begs Nick, and he agrees to keep quiet ..." for the sake of Sharon and Victoria.

    At the office, Carmen and Neil are taking a meeting when Dru interrupts by phone. She asks that Neil bring home some take-out from Gina's, to which he agrees. After the call, he also agrees to have a working dinner with Carmen!

    At Gina's, Dru is sitting at a table. She spies Neil and Carmen!

    Phyllis receives a phone call from Nick, cancelling plans for dinner. A disappointed Phyllis is understanding as Nick explains he needs to be there for Sharon right now.

    Ashley comes from John's room, in tears. She tells everyone that she agrees with Gloria that they shouldn't let go of John just yet.

    Gloria to Jack, ...As John's wife, what happens to him is my decision.... To which Jack replies, ...I can always take you to court!...

    If Nick and Phyllis are staying together I will be forced to STOP watching the show Y&R is my favorite but I cannot abide the two of them together.

    Posted by a_darnell at Wednesday, August 16 2006 11:45 AM

    First off, this is the best soap ever. I think Phyllis and Nick should be together. Phyllis didn't break up Nick and Sharon, they did!!! That relationship was long gone before they got together. After the death of Casey it was down hill. Plus Sharon wasn't a angel she had affairs, Tomos and Brad. Why does everyone hate Phyliss, It takes two to cheat, not just one.
    If people are going to stop watching a soap because their favorites get divorce or dies.. I say Bye, Bye. It's a show on t.v. get real.

    I guess we also need to say GOOD-Bye to Karen_cooper, because Nick and Phyllis add a spice to the show that missing, they are wonderful together and guess what it happens all the time in real life.
    If you've been watching as long as you claim you have, you would see where Sharon loves to play the victem. She's in Love with Brad! I guess that OK. Please to the writer's keep up the good story line. I'm 47 and I've been watching since I was 12yrs old. So lets all say goodby to Karen. I as well as others in my company want to see Nick and Phylis together.

    Does anyone know, or has anyone figured out what it is that Brad had Sharon deliver a few weeks ago? It was shortly after he realized that he was being figured out. He had Sharon deliver something in a bag, and nothing has been said about that since then. As far as the whole Nick and Phyllis thing goes, I will just about bet that Nick lied about the paternity results and Jack is really the father of the baby. No one other than Nick saw the results and I bet he is lying.

    yes I think your right about phyllis's baby being really Jack's, that is just how soaps work, Sharon and Nick will divorce and he will marry that hag and then something will happen and POW, that will be over and Sharon will have moved on to Brad as his wife if fed up. I think Sharon and Nick always belonged together and was disappointed when the story line went to Phyllis, can't stand her. I don't watch it like I used to because of her.

    It's sad to see John leave, but he is getting up there in age, and after he married that Gloria, he was protrayed as a real dummy, not seeing her for the thief and coniving money grubber sneak she is, he was played as a sap,let him leave with diginity, she should get nothing but because it's a soap, she will get everything and full control, I'll stop watching then.

    Im glad Sharon is still not wanting to be close to Nick. Just because of the Kidnapping she is still very upset about his new life with Phyllis! I hope it all backfires on him. A year ago he could not stand Phyllis because of Casey`s death now he cant keep his hands off of her .
