The Young And The Restless Weekly Blog!
Week of July 19 – 23:
Just when I was starting to think The Young and the Restless was getting lame, some really cool things happened and the week ended strong! Check out my thoughts below!
That’s me, because I love this story twist with Ronan being undercover and Christine being in on it. Not only does this make Christine more interesting, but it validates what I’ve been thinking about Ronan all along – he is Chance’s brother and is secretly protecting him. I LOVED the flashbacks with Rose DeVille (Darlene Conley), young Nina, and disguised Cricket – this was the first impression the late Darlene Conley made on me as an actress and I never forgot it!

He had been making a fool of Chloe by continuing to allow her to interact with Heather and Ronan without the benefit of knowing the truth, so I was glad he finally came out with it. What a great soap moment of tension! I cannot WAIT to see what Chloe does next!
I don’t have a clue why they brought Meggie back – my sole observation is that her eyes totally lit up at the sight of that rock Victor gave Nikki. She also loved racking up the charges on The Mustache’s account at Fenmore’s. As for Victor and Nikki’s engagement…how many times is this now? Oh, and how about Nick and Victoria quizzing Vic on his marital intentions at the Club – pulllease!
Save A Horse…
The one thing I like about Abby is the way she stands up to Victor. I’ve always been a sucker for someone who can look him in the eye and push his buttons! It was good horse sense to have Abby ride nekkid into the Club – so funny to watch the Newmans react! Her trip to the clink was good too.
The Fighting Fenmores.
I’m hoping this Jill and Lauren story will develop into something beyond bickering. This week I noticed the nuances in Jess Walton’s performance as she let us glimpse Jill’s hurt to just the right degree.
Ash & Tucker’s Drop-In.
I found it really odd that two CEOs (Ashley and Tucker) would make a home visit to another CEO (Victor) to accuse him of things they have no real proof of – didn’t seem particularly savvy. On the other hand, Tucker and Ashley are hot and I like to see them together, so it’s all good.
I have high hopes for the new addition to the canvas. Not only is Sofia a realistic character, but she is a feisty, strong female which I love to see. The scene where she cut down Neil was an eye-opening beginning! If you missed it, check out Soaps.com's Chat with Julia Pace Mitchell (Sofia)!
I'm not really liking that Phyllis suddenly has nothing to do but meddle in Daniel's sex life. She needs to have a hot new storyline!
Jack and Jabot.
The 'get Jabot back' story has such a recycled feel, and you can sense his romance with Emily gearing down. I hope they come up with something interesting for Ol' Smilin'!
Watching Victoria act sulky, spoiled and rebellious toward her parents is not entertaining. Nor is watching her whine to Billy about them. She's not Abby's age, so she shouldn't act like it.
I couldn't have cared less about this storyline or these scenes this week. Watching Adam go after Patty again will be nauseating.
I could watch Chloe and Kevin banter all day. I will hate it if Kevin loses Crimson Lights.
Where are Mac, JT, Cane, and Lily? Consistency people!
