Restless Rant
Week of November 19 – 21:

It was a bit of a dismal Thanksgiving in Genoa City this year – I was missing the Abbott family as much as Jack!

Second choice.
Maybe Nina and Paul didn’t have a red-hot romance, and she has been away working, but I still felt for her this week. Given that this is the second time she’s caught Christine kissing Paul since they started seeing each other, I’ve no idea why she keeps thinking of Chris as her BFF. As for Paul, I hate to see him portrayed as a lousy boyfriend. In other news, I’m glad Michael dropped the charges for whatever trumped up reason, and the Ricky debacle is over for Pauly.

One circle of hell for another…
Is it me, or is Neil getting just a little out of control with the hiring for Jabot? The look on Cane’s face at Thanksgiving dinner when he heard that Devon was coming on board said it all!

It’s not working; nothing’s working.
It will be interesting to see if it comes out that Sharon started the fire at the ranch now that she’s confessed to Noah. Will everyone else be as understanding as her son? I think not. It may also come out that Adam hired the firebug to take suspicion off Sharon. If so, Chelsea might align herself with Jeff (who lost his restaurant), and if that happens, look out Genoa City! In other news, Adam’s saying otherwise, but his actions seem to hint that way deep down he cares more about Sharon than Chelsea. Also, it was stellar to have Sharon and Phyllis share scenes this week – it’s been too long.

Sick of trying.
Kevin’s ‘poor me’ routine is on my last nerve. ‘Nuff said.

Crazy Ol’ Fruit Bat.
Katherine putting Jill to the test was a hoot! Jill later returned the favor by inviting Tucker to Thanksgiving dinner. It was very satisfying to see Kay and Tucker take a teeny step toward more solid ground, even if Devon stormed out in full-on brat mode. I’d love to see them eventually interacting as ‘one big happy dysfunctional family’. Should Jill and Tucker hook-up again? Let us know your opinion by voting in Soaps.com’s Y&R Jill & Tucker poll.
