Restless Rant
Week of September 10 – 14:

This is what jumped out from the past week of “Y&R.” Read and comment!

Smashing the snow globe.
It was an interesting twist to have the snow globe contain a flashdrive with a cryptic lie from Ricky on it, rather than the hoped for evidence of him murdering Rachel. Of course, this isn’t good for Paul, but it brings us to Lauren making the decision to come clean about the gun, which is only fair. I still want to know what could possibly have happened to Ricky’s knife…

Crazy Daisy.
Sharon finding Daisy in the mental institution was an unexpected development, and the only element of Sharon’s stay at Fairview worth watching. Snoozefest. Who else wants to see what happens when Daisy walks in on Daniel and Heather’s sexytime? Show of hands!

Taking over.
Well, Victoria had just got comfortable with the idea that she wouldn’t have to give up Victor’s office until he returned when Sharon reappeared. “I’m baaack!” As eye-opening as Sharon’s new attitude has been, I’m getting slightly weary of the Newman Enterprises Go-Round. I particularly don’t like the angle with Billy keeping Victor at bay on purpose so that Victoria can play CEO – this is not going to be good for their marriage when it comes out! It’s tough to get too worried about Jack and Tucker’s stock purchases – probably nothing more than an annoyance to The Mustache when he returns – unless they team up perhaps. A more likely scenario is that Jack’s greed will spank him – again – and he’ll lose out big time.

L.A. dockworkers unite.
Ye gads. This storyline just doesn’t have anything compelling going on. Bring Victor home – let’s see ‘Christian’ run Newman Enterprises…
