The Young And The Restless Weekly Blog
Week of December 26 – 30:
Of course the drama is largely what draws us in to “Y&R,” but the increase in romance, trysts, and kisses lately has really improved the overall viewing experience. Now, if we could get back to the classic one-liner style humor as opposed to the gimmicky, goofy Angelo/Angelina stuff… Here are some thoughts on the week’s happenings:
I just want to go home.
We feel ya’, Kevin! Another week into the Angelina tale, and it’s still like a bad cartoon we can’t turn off.
Husband and wife again.
Billy and Vikki’s remarriage and honeymoon made for romantic, fun, and sexy viewing, but it sure didn’t last long. Who else thinks Victor is behind Chelsea showing up on the newlyweds’ doorstep? Who else thinks she’ll turn out to be preggers with ‘Liam’s’ baby? It’s the one thing that could really send Vikki for a loop…
One more night.
Here we go again, trying to reconcile how we can’t look away from Sharon and Adam’s undeniable chemistry; can’t help but be drawn in as they express their forbidden love…yet also can never forget the dastardly deeds of the past. It’s endlessly fascinating to see glimpses of Adam’s vulnerabilities and capacity for love – very reminiscent of his father, who is also capable of extreme generosity and love, but who has also committed many heinous acts, and who continues to plot against his own family members on a regular basis. One thing that differs is that Victor is clearly defined by his past, whereas it’s still difficult to understand why Adam is the way he is.
Good for both of us?
Why would Sharon even consider the idea of marrying Victor, right after complaining that she didn’t want to be controlled? Oh, not to mention that pesky past with both of his sons. Poor Noah will never come home when he hears this one! Should Sharon marry Victor?
How's that plan working for ya' Nikki? After slobbering over Deacon for two days, she still didn’t get any more information from him than she got from Gloria by simply walking over and asking.
Oh, Neil, how nice of you to give your stamp of approval to Harmony’s life, and you deigned to kiss your wife this week – how lucky is she? Okay, he does get a few points for planning a New Year’s Eve at the Colonnade Room...
We need to be seeing a lot more of Roxy. She brings ‘sexy’ and ‘real’ into every scene she’s in – heck, she can even make crusty ol’ Devon seem downright appealing!
I kind of like the tentative relationship being forged between Cane and Genevieve. Aside from that, Cane and Lily’s Christmas and New Year’s were both romantic – especially New Year’s at midnight. It will be interesting to see what will go on with this pair now that they’re back together.
Happy New Year!
Tucker finally reached out to Katherine, and it was good. It’s a little strange that ‘Super Harmony’ is suddenly able to convince Devon and Tucker to do things that their loved ones were unable to, but hey, she has to get established somehow, so I’m willing to buy in.
Patty’s party trick.
Poor Jack, just gets on track, and Patty strikes again...
