The Young And The Restless Weekly Blog!
Week of March 21 – 25:
There just isn’t a whole lot happening storyline-wise right now in Genoa City that has viewers rushing to the television set to tune in. I’d like get back to having some couples to root for – there’s been a lot of mismatches lately. Check out my thoughts on the week:
It was super-frustrating having Chance’s storyline come to revolve around Heather this week. Why keep featuring such an unpopular character? I was glad Chance went ahead and testified against the crusty Pomerantz, but the rest – rescuing Heather, telling Heather she’s ‘the one’, chasing around after her in dark glasses – was a waste of time. Many viewers have commented that they hope Chance will go back into witness protection and take Heather with him. What’s your take?
I like that Daniel is supporting Lily, but don’t particularly want to see them reconcile. As for the text Lily received, it seems pretty logical that it could have been from Colin – especially considering him and Jill showed up right after – but it could be Cane. Either way, something has to give soon.
I was surprised to see Abby having herself arrested again, but I’d like to see her succeed despite everyone’s doubts, and I still like her with Daniel.
I love the way the drama is building in the Lucy storyline. Having Jana getting closer to the truth just as Daisy is located, and Billy and Victoria christening the baby after a close call with the birth certificate, is really heightening the stakes. The best tale on the show right now.
As much as I enjoy Katherine 'on the warpath', I'm a bit confused about her taking Victor's part over her own son to the degree that she is - especially since it's based on what Tucker is doing in the name of business. Goodness knows Victor has made hundreds of cutthroat decisions in the name of business - many far worse than what Tucker's doing. I think Katherine suggesting that Ashley dump her son is taking it a bit far - I'm waiting to see how this comes out in the wash.
I wasn't surprised at Victor's announcement that he'll take the company public, but I'm still thinking he has a back-up plan where Newman Enterprises is concerned - perhaps something to do with Diane and Kyle. They made a big point of noting the details of the pre-nup when he and Diane were married, as well as the fact that he was making a trust for Kyle. Any ideas?
While I still like the idea of Phyllis being embroiled in Sharon's situation, things are in danger of getting a bit stale in this storyline. I haven't totally lost interest, but it's waning.
Advancing with Vance?
'Drinking Nikki' and Vance are a pairing I had never considered. Obviously Deacon truly cares for her, but Vance would be a more acceptable partner for her. That said, I want to see Vance in a sizzling relationship that makes me hoot and holler - I'm not sure Nikki is the one to fill the bill.
