Before the clock strikes twelve and we ring in the New Year, Y&R will end the final week of 2016 with the airing of a classic episode featuring the wedding of Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). It happens next Friday, December 30th.

These nuptials were originally broadcast on April 13, 1984, and featured the first marriage of one the most beloved couples in daytime history.  Look for longtime current cast members in the episode as well including: Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott), Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) and Doug Davidson (Paul Williams).

Programming note: Due to CBS’ broadcast of College Football’s Sun Bowl, this airing of Y&R will air from 10-11AMPST, while Y&R will retain its regularly scheduled timeslot on the the east and central time zones.

So, are you looking forward to seeing this classic soap opera wedding all over again next Friday? Comment below.

I love these classic rebroadcasts— and the added bonus is we now know what happened after that moment in time, so I am sure some of the dialogue will be tainted with irony and inadvertent foreshadowing of things yet to be. To see some of the old sets like they were might to be, to hear the lovely real music the show used to have instead of some tech’s guy IPod playlist– and it was a grand affair–not too much of those any more on soaps— and may be the best fun of all is laughing at all those ugly hair styles and clothes we thought we so great at the time– what were we thinking back then LOL—

I too love when they rebroadcast old episodes. Remember when every grand event took place at the infamous Collinade Room? It will be fun to see past cast members and try to rehash the storylines. 1984 was the year I graduated from H.S. I can’t believe I was watching on and off since then. Well now that eveyone who will read this, and knows basic second grade math will figure out my age, I will say MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!! Happy New Year as well. And as always, tune in tomorrow for the next episode…

0ooh gawd NO–

I could not watch one more Luke and Laura wedding..

Addison

Who said anything about Luke and Laura? What about Anna and Robert’s wedding in Italy? Or their “From Here to Eternity” love scene on the beach? Or Tiffany and Sean’s hilarious wedding at the Q mansion?
Or flash forward to the 90’s when Brenda locked eyes with Sonny.
Or how about a flashback to the Q mansion back when it was the social place to be.
Y&R is demonstrating how to incorporate backward glances into the present. This is how you do it.

LOL.. GH….I’d love them to flashback the whole show!

Happy New Year!

GH could take a note from this, and do a flashback of Dr. Hardy or Alan Q reading to the kids at GH at Christmas. Or even have another Q pick up the mantle like Ned or Michael and continue with this lovely tradition.

The first of many of their marriages. How many times have they tied the knot with each other? I’ll bet they have as many as Sonny and Carly on GH.

My assumption is they are pulling out this classic because something related to this will become important to an upcoming story line. Ms. Sussman is great at breathing life from the past, and I think this will be no different. Something will tie into this in 2017.

I was thinking the same thing…

Finally—we’re getting a REAL classic episode. The last several that aired as “classic” were just episodes that happened a short while ago. That’s good for refreshing anyone’s mind about the current story or trying to reel in viewers who might have just started tuning in but I wouldn’t call episodes like that classic. Something from the mid-80s is classic and Y&R knew how to breathe fire into the stories back then and the budgets were much bigger than what they are today. If I remember right, Nikki’s dress for that wedding cost $300,000. This was also when Bill Bell was alive so no story ever got told before it’s time. THAT is what we have for classic episodes and I’ll take those any day!!!

Smart move… Not only is it a delight to revisit a past moment, but CBS is reminding us of its commitment to Sally Sussman and making things right with the popular daytime drama.

Kool, glad to see it. Back in the day I was all AMC so I missed this but heard so much about it.

Who is the baby in this episode? He is in a woman’s lap during the wedding

Halley

It’s a girl….the baby was Victoria!
I did some research…Nikki had Victoria before she and Victor were married!!

Ron
Ron

The woman holding the baby was Liz Foster, Jill’s mother. I believe the baby she held was her grandchild… I think it was Snapper’s child (Liz’s son.)

Ron
Ron

It was Liz Foster. But I think others here are correct. Nikki had the baby before the marriage.

Theresa

Yes, the baby that Liz was holding was indeed Victoria, born onscreen in 1982, I believe she was almost 2 when Victor and Nikki got married

Wish they would have a track at the bottom of the screen to tell who everyone is

Who was the woman trying to kill Nikki on her 1st wedding day to Victor?

Eve Howard

That was Eve Howard. Victor had a one night stand with her. She had a son named Cole, who she told Victor he was the father of. Victoria later married him. Victor had to tell her he was her half brother, at which point they had their marriage annuled. Victor found out later he wasn’t his son, him & Victoria got married again. She hot pregnant with his child, but miscarried. He also had a relationship with Ashley, & Nikki. Miss those good old days!

Denise Blessing

Thank you for giving me a little backround. I didn’t watch Y & R from the beginning but my husband did. He couldn’t remember.

Who was the baby who said Mama (referring to Nikki) in the April 1984 episode?

Victoria is sitting on Jill Foster Abbott’s Mother Elizabeth’s lap

Halley

Victoria!
I did some digging…she had Victoria before she and Victor were married….it’s Vic!

She

I enjoyed the flashback to Victor and Nikki’s wedding. There was a young adorable boy that they flashed on a couple times and when Nikki walked down the aisle, he whispered “Mama”. Who was that supposed to be? I have to admit to not watching this show until 2000.

Halley
Halley

Do you think that was Dylan????

Bright blue eyes…..and we know now all these years later she had that other baby….
It must be!

They need to release ALLLLLLLLL of the past episodes, from the very beginning. I’d pay for the opportunity to watch all those shows from before my time to when i was old enough to start watching up through now even. It breaks my heart I can’t see these.

lori d.
lori d.

That is Victoria, who was born in 1982.

Breeann
Breeann

Victoria was 2 at the time, so it should have been her. But who was the woman trying to kill her??

Breeann
Breeann

So I looked it up. It was Cole’s mom, Eve Howard. She escaped the mental hospital.

Jo
Jo

By 1984, Victor was planning on marrying Nikki. When Eve read about this in the newspaper at the sanitarium, she tried to switch places with her roommate, who was about to be released but wanted to stay in the sanitarium. Eve knocked out a caterer and changed clothes with her to get into the hotel where Victor and Nikki were getting married. After the wedding, Eve went to Nikki’s room, and she prepared to stab her, but she was interrupted by Nikki’s sister, Dr. Casey Reed. So, Eve climbed into Victor’s trunk which was about to be placed on the plane for his honeymoon. At the last moment, the newlyweds changed their minds and decided to stay home. Victor learned that Eve had escaped; he found her and returned her to the sanitarium. A couple of months later, while Victor and Nikki were vacationing, Eve and Nikki’s former lover, Rick Daros, escaped from the sanitarium and returned to Genoa City. Rick had amnesia, forgetting he had tried to kill Nikki earlier in the year, and he became Eve’s lover. After breaking into the ranch, Eve stole money from Victor’s safe, and the two escaped to Europe.

I’m only 38 y.o. n have only been watching this since the 90s as I entered high school in 1992, so no I’m not interested in this episode; in fact I’m thoroughly confused n quite annoyed by this old and ancient episode no matter how classic only cuz I haven’t the slightest idea who a lot of these ppl are, so its highly frustrating. I’m more partial to actually knowing the characters n storylines of everyone on screen….trying to Google to keep up with this episode n get some point of reference is totally n completely exhausting!!!
BTW who’s the chick trying to poison or kill Nicki n why exactly is she doing that?

Alan
Alan

The woman trying to kill Nikki was Eve Howard, Victor’s former secretary who claimed her son Cole was the result of a one-night stand with Victor. When she learned that Cole was named in Victor’s will, Eve came up with a scheme to slowly poison Victor and claim his fortune for her son. Eve’s plot was foiled when Victor’s ex-wife Julia stumbled onto the plot via a phone call she overheard between Eve and her partner in crime Max. Eve was sent away to a mental institution which she escaped from just prior to Friday’s episode.

Years later while Victor was presumed dead (but was really living in Kansas with Hope), Cole came to Genoa City and eventually got engaged to Victoria and wrote his mother to tell her the good news. Eve freaked out that her son was going to marry his half-sister and flew to Genoa City to tell him he was Victor’s son. Before she could spill the beans, Eve fell into a coma from some tropical disease she got on a cruise. She died before being able to tell her son the truth and Cole and Victoria eloped. Victor read of his daughter’s marriage and returned to Genoa City to tell the newlyweds they were kin. The marriage was annulled but later Victor found a letter from a man claiming to be Cole’s father. He had a DNA test performed and it proved that he was not Cole’s father. Years later, Victoria and Cole had a daughter they named Eve but the baby died shortly after her birth.

That was Niki’s conjoined twin. She suffered from a blood disorder which was causing poison to flow through Niki. It was imperative that they be separated. She then grew up trying to poison Niki with the mindset that Niki was supposed to be poisoned because they should’ve never been separated….Bad blood between them!

Mark Y

So why did you watch?

Ron

Bill Bell wrote the episode himself. Not only was it a great wedding, but he made it clear that the Newmans and Abbotts were now the main families of Y and R, as he appeased many fans of the earliest years of the show when he brought back all the Brookes girls and Liz Foster as a farewell to them; they were the original families in the 70s when the program was only 30 minutes.

Everything about this episode was lush. Loved it.

The music and the Colannade Room! Colonel Austin! I am one fan who’d love to hear that music TODAY and see the lovely Colannade Room back in action. Top of the Tower pales by comparison.

Poor Colonel Austin passed away year ago.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.

So now the mystery begins!  Will J.T. be alive after all, which would exonerate Nikki, and her gal pals in crime, Phyllis, Sharon and Amelia from a murder rap?

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?

When Luckinbill returned to the show in late 2017, fans were in for a shock when once nice guy, J.T. was turned into a spousal abuser.

So, what do you think of J.T. coming back to Genoa City … or is he? How will this story play out now that it is in the hands of head writer, Josh Griffith? Comment below,
