Restless Rant
Week of May 14 – 18:

Monday – You Did It!
Daniel got slapped back to his new reality when Daisy and Phyllis showed up at Jimmy’s Bar. Eden’s showing signs of having a death wish – she’s now on the wrong side of Ricky, Abby, and Daisy! Later, Phyllis got real with Daisy, which was refreshing. Daniel wouldn’t agree to annul the marriage – it will be interesting to see what Danny will tell him. After, Phyllis found herself trapped in the elevator with creepy Ricky – bone-chilling. Over at therapy, Billy did a stand-up job of telling a disheartened Jack to buck up – he reminded me of John. Over at Abby’s, Ashley hit the nail on the head when she told Tucker, who asked her, “Don’t do this,” that she didn’t do this – he did. Thank you. I just love any scenes with the Abbott siblings – they are the heart of “Y&R.”

Tuesday – Disturbing On So Many Levels.
I got a kick out of Katherine asking Victor what the hell he was doing with Sharon, but it’s beyond me why they’ve made Kay the official campaign chair for a Nikki/Victor reunion – drives me nuts! Victor made his way to Vikki’s, where he had an eventful afternoon; he and Nikki were chastised by Victoria for their childlike behavior, he bonded with Baby John, and he also overheard Billy, fresh from a heart-to-heart with Ashley and sporting a new perspective, tell Victoria he understands for the first time why Victor dislikes him. Over at Crimson Lights, it was the Harmony hour, which featured her calling herself every name in the book and Neil fretting over her mental state. Neil spent way more time worrying about Harmony today than the sorry state of his marriage – dolt. Also, Devon returned to the land of self-righteous indignation, reading the riot act to Tucker and Harmony. Please tell me what Tucker cheating on Ashley has to do with their father/son relationship. Didn’t Devon sleep with his ‘Aunt’ Tyra when she was with Neil – cheating on Roxanne in the process? Now he’s Judgy Judgerson? His reaction was over-the-top, especially considering he hardly blinked the day before when serial cheater Neil told him he had kissed Harmony.

Wednesday – No Strings Attached.
Tucker unknowingly blew his only possible chance to get back with Ashley when she caught him comforting Harmony. To make matters worse, Ashley then had to deal with Super Harmony pleading Tucker’s case on her doorstep! I loved how she told her off about the ‘image that assaulted her eyeballs’. Too funny! Katherine, meanwhile, gave Tucker some solid advice and he followed it – satisfying indeed.
