Shemar Moore's Return To Y&R Day One! Malcolm and Neil Take A Trip Down Memory Lane!

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Today, was the first episode of the two-day return of Shemar Moore (Malcolm) to The Young and the Restless!

And for our money, it did not disappoint. In fact, both Shemar and his longtime Genoa City co-star and on-screen brother, Kristoff St. John, (Neil) knocked their scenes out of the park!

And for any long time fan of the show, seeing these two together again and their dynamic still held weight.  However, the circumstances in the 2014 version are much different.

Malcolm has grown up and is the voice of reason, and Neil is being a little bit reckless with his life, and not coming to terms with being blind and what that might mean for his relationship with his much younger wife, Hilary (Mishael Morgan).

On day one of Moore’s Y&R return, newer viewers got a “quickie” history lesson of the brothers relationship:  how they slept with, or married, or carried on, with the same women for starters.  And how Malcolm always bolts and leaves town when his family needs him. When Malcolm tries to assure Neil he is back to see him, Neil rebuffs him.  But ultimately this visit it about Malcolm trying to be honest with where Neil is at this point in his life, whether Neil wants to hear the hard truths or not.

Watch a few key clips from today’s episode of Y&R after the jump! Then let us know, what did you think of Shemar’s return and the reunion of Neil and Malcolm?  Were you touched?  What did you think of the performances?  Comment below!

It was good, I enjoyed it.. and ”’ viewers got a “quickie” history lesson of the brothers relationship:” that was meaningless because their is no brothers Winters on screen, there is only Neil so don’t care much about their history… fun to watch, tho.. .. There was other things they could have come up with because the history lessen has no point to it when there will be no on screen brothers.. (scratching head) The old timers got a kick out of the memory trip, so that is good thing .. 🙂 I just wanted to look at Shemar Moore… Read more »

You are absolutely right, jimh! I love when I catch snippets of DAYS gone by…be it from before I started watching or my early years of watching, which is why I’m looking forward to the 50th!!!!!

Okay, Miss SU000, allow me to summarize your statement. You do not care for a character’s history with a sibling even when that history helps mold who that character is today? You don’t care to watch two siblings who have had a lot of conflict in their past relationship, resolve their differences and embrace each other with brotherly love.
But you do like to gaze upon Shemar’s beauty? So, you don’t care for content, only the exterior? This explains the devotion and blind love you have for GH.

Yes!
Shemar, please take Neil, Tyler, Leslie, Lilly, Devon with you!
Really, those 5 are horribly dull dull dull ..(they serve no purpose)
Devon doesn’t do much of anything, he is just there.
Leslie doesn’t do much of anything, she is just there.
Tyler doesn’t do much of anything, he is just there.
Neil doesn’t do much of anything, he is stumbling around being nothing interesting.
Lilly dose annoying, very well ..

but– some like the 5 ..
and they would chase Shemar down the street to get the 5 back..
so- they have to stay for the ones who like them to make them happy ..

Yep take all the African American characters and get them off the screen. If that were to happen, there would be so much outrage in the daytime community. YR is the ONLY soap that actually has an African American family unit. I mean because this show DEFINITELY needs more of Victor doing his Wash, Rinse, Repeat SL’s of doing something, everyone gets upset, no one speaks to him, he is forgiven a few months later. A fortune 500 business man who should be making Power moves, is running around dealing with an Amnesia patient. Victor Newman used to be Boss,… Read more »

Travis, the post was about Malcolm who is a member of the Winters family who happens to be black and they happen to be boring. I’ll throw Cane in there if it makes you happy. He sucks too and its not because he is Australian! His stories suck! He was only interesting when he was with Billy and Chloe. Yes, I would take Victor and his washing machine cycle because he is a legend, a good actor, but most importantly, he has connections with a lot of interesting characters whose strings he is pulling. Nikki, yes she fell off the… Read more »

See I guess that’s where we differ when it comes to Daytime Drama. I’m a firm believer that everyone doesnt need to be connected to everyone to make a good Soap. Good writing makes a good soap. One of the things that many people always say about Soaps is “Oh they just repeat the same things over and over”, which I firmly believe. Agnes Nixon, Bill Bell, & Claire Labine created Storylines, they didnt just repeat something over and over. New characters are needed in order to give Veteran characters someone to interact with. At some point many of the… Read more »

I respect your opinion. Wouldnt you miss the “Mustache” if he retired? Your right, could you imagine Donald Trump running around NY trying to manipulate a doctor into treating his son’s ex to get info on his son’s future wife to be AGAIN? Who is running Newman Enterprise? PLUS, if Donald Trump handed over a half a billion dollars to each of his kids he would NEVER talk to them again so I give credit to Victor when he says he is doing what he does for his family. He must really love them.

LOL. I think I just want YR returned to having interesting, complex, layered Ensemble Storytelling. People were actually friends, people interacted, every family had their own SL’s but yet had time to work, go to great parties, lie, cheat, and scheme. This show had some of the most interesting Storytelling that had me hooked as a kid. EB is so much better than the crap he is given. He hasnt had a proper SL in so long. Right now at this moment I miss Victor “The Great” Newman. This current version for the past few years is so annoying. Of… Read more »

Its the same with GH, no one has any friends on that show. Thats why I enjoyed the Thursday Night Football plug with Avery and Dylan. It at least connected them with the real world for a moment. EB needs a side kick. Someone like Douglas to be by his side or have a young gun that he hires at Newman walk in Victor’s footsteps and then turn on him and make Victor fight for something other than his FAMILY! Yes, EB needs a story line.

Wow thats a blast from the past. I MISS DOUGLAS. Victor has no friends whatsoever,now that u mention Douglas. How sad. They even got rid of my damn Miguel. He is so isolated from the rest of the show and cast. He never interacts with anyone not named Newman. Those Neil flashbacks made me remember that Newman Enterprise used to be more than just Victor’s office. Vikki had a office, Neil had a office, Nick had a office. This show is just….SIGH. I guess I need to let go of those memories cause it seems like thats all they will… Read more »

The show seems to really be marketing and plugging Shemar’s brief return. I think that is great to see. I haven’t watched in years (since summer vacations many years ago); but, I do watch from time to time when home. They do have some great actors-Peter Bergman (I remember him as Cliff from AMC), the returning Eileen Davidson (love her as Kristen on DAYS), and I’ve always loved the character of Nikki.

The Winters family saga suffers from the absence of Shemar Morre and Victoria Rowell in the roles as Malcolm and Dru. It is almost impossible to recast such strong personalities. (It failed once on Malcolm.) But… the characters are key to keeping Neil interesting and viable.

Any way to keep Shemar Moore? I fear Victoria Rowell will never be back.

I hope this reunion means no more plots about sharing the same woman between them. Neil is now doing that with his adopted son. *sigh*

Really?

It was so great to see Shemar Moore back on Y&R. I wish is was permanent because Malcolm is an important character in the Winters family, and Y&R needs great actors like SM on the show after losing much of their top talent in the past year. He and Kristoff St.John have such a great dynamic as brothers and they are both phenomenal actors. It was great seeing them rehash history, and it was great to see Malcolm there for his brother. And, even if it is for a short, 2-day visit, I’m glad they were able to bring SM… Read more »

I liked the first day– the clips and interaction between the brothers; the second day I found Malcolm was being portrayed like a super hero who swoops in to save the day. His parting speech about wishing he could be around all the time to fix everyone’s problems, was just silly. Malcolm’s character was never that mature let alone the wise sage of the Winter’s family, so for me it sounded false. I half expected him to ride off into the sunset on a horse, waving his white hat with twinkle in his eye, or the Pope to come along… Read more »

Yes, but Mary, in my experience it’s always the grown child who lives far away from the family core who is always the perfect hero.
Mom always loves the child who isn’t there the most.

It was on the money, I enjoyed the 2 days performances. He should visit every Summer.

To me, it was so negative – all he did was imply that Neil would never recover
his sight, rather than enpower him to believe it definitely could happen. Ugh.
Who needs that type of energy around them in such a situation? No one
needs to tell Neil he may stay blind. He knows that deep down, He needs
positive people by his side. Like Jack had…and did he walk again? Yup.
Anyway, I thought the whole thing with Malcolm back was dreary and cheesy.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
