Restless Rant
Week of November 5 – 9:

Things were hoppin’ in Genoa City this week. We have begun to see new storyline directions emerging and the action has picked up. One notable new development is that characters seem to be teleporting instantly from one scene/location to the next – it’s really taken me off guard a few times! Here are some points on the week:

She can stay.
Things have certainly got more interesting around Adam and Chelsea’s place since Sharon moved into the cottage – thank goodness. I respect the way Sharon’s ‘breakdown’ storyline is being followed through, while at the same time a triangle of sorts is developing among the trio, who are not only caught up together in the dire circumstances of the arson, but in Adam’s pull toward each woman for different reasons. All in!

Phick, Phack, no.
Phick are clearly done for the time being, and it appeared that Phyllis might end up with Ronan, however, their interactions have lost their sizzle of late, and with Phyllis agreeing to move in with Jack, it’s possible there could be a re-do happening with that pair. Yawn. Been there, done that. As for Nick, I’m surprised he’s controlled himself as long as he has when it comes to Avery. They do have chemistry, and her little fantasies are definitely hot. If Nick were anyone but her sister’s husband, it would be awesome. Tell us who you think Phyllis should be with by voting in Soaps.com’s Y&R Phyllis’ Love Life poll.

All jacked up.
Who else thinks Jack is a prime candidate for developing a raging addiction to prescription pain pills? Show of hands…

You stubborn fool!
Jill’s return was everything I’d hoped it would be; snarky interactions with Tucker, her tentative and testy reunion with Billy, and butting heads with Katherine in their time-honored way. Here’s hoping Jill ends up running Chancellor with Katherine and we get to see much more of her.
