Asked-
”So, what do you think is wrong with Victor? ”

I ‘know’ whatever has Victor down will pass and he will arise.
Victor is named Victor because he is the victor of all his plights.
No worries, the victor will be back to his old self, no doubts of that
((and- Eric is doing a phenomenal job portraying the weak Victor.

As for- Brooks Darnell he is very handsome and Young.
Y&R has been getting back to the ‘young’ side of the Young and the Restless. that has been quite noticeable.

With Mishial/Hillary and Eileen gone a Lot of money is freed to bring in new young characters, that is a good thing.

You hit the nail on the head. In all his interviews you can tell how important he thinks he is. In his confusion he thinks he is Victor!! lol

I LOVE ERIC Breaeden IN THIS ROLE. When they went searching for the Actor to play this role, They found it, It’s not the actor some hate, it’s the character and Eric play him very well.

…finally! a character with ties to an existing genoa city family returns! Nate junior should have returned ages ago so its about time! would love to see Olivia return as well especially with Ashley leaving it would be nice for her to lend jack an ear since they go way back and of course visit Neil and the rest of the Winters clan. Ultimate would be a Jack/ Liv/ Neil triangle!

After seeing the interaction between Nate and Hilary, I would immediately think something would be brewing in the future. Unless they actually kill her off, “it ain’t gonna happen”, but if she is replaced, watch out Nat, here she comes, she’s a maneater, she’ll chew you up!

Okay, so Nate is going to come treat Victor. Victor needed to get off GC Buzz yesterday. I think he made things worse.

I think this young man has a very big job ahead.
Is he a surgeon as well, because that’s what it will take to remove Victor’s head where it has been stuck for so many years!

I don’t think we need a lot of new characters. We have some great characters already on-screen. Just write good story for them.

Not loving the poker story though. Need to cut that stat.

No new characters needed….write better storylines for the better actors involved. Right now ….horrible writing for Winters family, Phyllis, Billy and good grief did they have to bring back Summer???? I find little to hold my interest these days!

My idea for a story involving this character is that we get to see his mother Olivia where they’ll have some stuff to do in story but as we go along, it comes out that Drucilla is found. we need resolution for that character. I was never happy with how Dru was written off the canvas.

I like the idea of rebuilding the Winters family. After Abbott and Newman, Winters has become legacy. I miss the Drucilla-Olivia-Neil-Malcolm quardrangle. Y&R did sexy and drama right there. And oh, remember Mamie!

Those days were the best. With Ashley and Hillary gone..sony needs to make amends with Victoria Rowell and bring Dru back stat. Genoa city needs a strong leading lady to stir the pot. NuPhyllis isnt the same without Michelle Stafford and Jill is m.i.a. Dru, Olivia and even Nina would fill the void. Christine and Avery would also balance the heroine role as well.

Y&R will be just fine.
New actors/characters will be brought in to Create New Stories.
And like many were moaning and bitching when Mishial/Hillary came to Y&R ”we don’t need New we the Old !..
Now, those same viewers (I assume) are sad she is leaving.
It is the same old bitch fest when some new comes and the sad when they leave.
I’m looking forward to new characters to enter.
New stories are always welcomed, by me 🙂

Loved little Nate, and hope to like the grownup one as well. I liked his dad, and also Olivia, but couldn’t stand Dru, which is OK, because she loved herself enough for everyone, who didn’t. Now, wondering who they will pair this hunky guy up with.Please not the latest version of Summer!
