Weird scene with Johnny

I expected so much more from this scene…what we got was the weirdest reaction ever to finding out who your birth parent is. “I said I didn’t want to know” and “everyone else knew first” is just weird, especially from a kid that looks to be a pre-teen/teen. Outright strange dialogue and reaction imho

I can see where the kid would be confused. He’d told him he didn’t want to know and Victoria dropped the name in his lap like a hot potatoe.
The kid was shipped off to boarding school so of course he’s wondering if more changes are coming with the reveal. Chelsea has been in town forever so why tell him now, naturally he confused and thinks something is wrong.

Geese I was shocked how much they aged Johnny! So is Reed now married with children?

I liked Johnny’s reaction to the news, but the way the scene was written was indeed kind of weird.

What gets me is Billy going on and on about what a wonderful mother Victoria is.
Um - I don’t think so.

Exactly. I think it was a combination of Princess Victoria and Billy not respecting his wishes and the fact that apparently everyone else already knows. It’s one thing when it’s all abstract, and I bet he thought that only a handful of people were aware of the particulars. So it’s a lot to learn what you didn’t want to know and to simultaneously find out that you’re among the last to know.

They should have followed Johnny’s lead. Kids are naturally curious, but if he didn’t want to know, they should have left it at that.

So here’s what I want to know. They told Johnny that Chelsea is his birth mother. But they didn’t tell him that Billy is his biological father as well as adoptive.

Isn’t that going to cause him a lot more angst and upset when he finds that out, and just make him even more angry about something ELSE everyone else knew except for him?

(He doesn’t already know, right?)

…so now it is time for Johnny to start ‘acting up’ and misbehaving?? Chelsea should have just left well enough alone. She is miserable and want everyone else to be miserable too! Victoria is usually steadfast on holding on to her own beliefs, why did she agree to tell Johnny who his biological mother is??

Vikki knew her hand was forced. If she didn’t tell Johnny she knew that Chelsea would make sure he found out in another manner and Vikki as his mother felt it would be better coming from her. Chelsea wanted this before but that time billy agreed with Vikki. Now that billy agreed with Chelsea, Vikki knew that it was going to come out. Billy didn’t think about what an aggressive move it was when he had the boys swimming together added to this is likt telling Billy it was time as well.

Vikki is a good mother, she’s always put her kids first and been there for them until the Ashland situation. Johnny obviously is happy with his mother and family life and doesn’t want any changes. He knows he’s adopted but didn’t care to know more which shows he’s not curious or yearning for a different mom because he feels that Vikki isn’t paying him enough attention, Johnny’s happy with the mom he has. Vikki clearly stated she didn’t want to this right now because of everything the kids had been through recently but her choice was refuse and let billy and kr Chelsea do it anyway without her knowledge or input.

So let Chelsea spill the beans then, and have Johnny resent HER rather than Victoria.

Since when???

Since she’s been on the show. She was a good stepmother to Delia and to her own kids. Vikki has always had her kids not shipped them off to be cared for by others until Ashland. She’s never had to send her kids to Victor and Nicki. Johnny obviously thinks she’s a good mother.

It’s not about letting Johnny resent anybody it’s about making sure he’s okay when he hears the news. It’s about it being a sage and comfy place for him emotionally when he’s told that’s why vikki chose to let him know as a small child that he was her adopted child while red and Katie weren’t

Vikki is a horrible mother! I thought the same thing as you when Billy was saying how great she was. Work is her main child. Her daddy is her second priority. :roll_eyes:

While Ashland was around, she didn’t give her kids a second thought. Ashland moved in and they moved out to Billy’s home.

Lately as CEO after her Ashland phase, but in general I would say Victoria always put her kids first, there were times she and Billy would talk about things they did with the kids she didn’t pawn them off 100% on nanny or ship them to stay at the ranch

Vikki used to be a good mom. I think that was years ago before she became Victor’s clone.

Reed who? :joy::rofl::joy:

Perhaps, but that’s something she should have taken up with Chelsea. Johnny shouldn’t have to deal with the idiocy of adults. Chelsea being a loose cannon is not his problem.

I’m with you. Chelsea is going to Chelsea, and that fallout should be on her alone. I think it’s best for Johnny to know that his parents trust and respect when he says, “thanks, but no thanks.”

The scene felt rushed. I hated it.

I don’t understand why they would choose to have that type of conversation in a park where people would be walking by, kids playing etc…
