THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Abby and Ashley Headed For Showdown!

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Tuesday’s episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless looks to feature Abby (Melissa Ordway) confronting her mother Ashley (Eileen Davidson) on what went down during the inferno that tore through the Newman Enterprise building on Halloween.

As viewers remember, Ashley was trapped in the fire alone with Stitch (Sean Carrigan) and he told her he loved her, but he is set to marry Abby.  However the two (Ashley and Ben AKA Stitch) revealed to each other they have quite a connection.

Now Abby is set to have a showdown with her mother as to why Ashley lied about exactly what Stitch confessed when he thought he was going to have his last breathes in the fire.

Do you think Ashley should do anything to have Stitch for herself, or  let her daughter and Stitch go on with their lives and watch from the sidelines?  Do you want Abby and Ben to say their “I do’s”?  What do you think of this storyline?  Watch the preview for Tuesday’s episode after the jump.  Then, share your thoughts in the comment below!

This is so hard to say either way because I like them both. I think Stitch is better with Ashley but no matter who he chose it’s a soap-opera, the’ll end in divorce so he can go with the other one. Yesterday I actually turned it off for the first time in ages but I was so excited about Jack spilling the beans on Victor and having Victor arrested for once in his miserable life. I was so angry when he backed down then I waited to see if Phyllis would step-up but she didn’t so I turned it off,… Read more »

“On went Christmas music and laundry was done.” And don’t you feel like you got so much accomplished instead? 🙂 I am really saddened at the farce this show has become. Used to be, not too long ago, that you could turn on CBS and watch an engaging daytime drama called THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Now what airs instead is a very poorly written comedy, but I don’t know what it is called. It definitely is not the show that I have known and loved for decades. What I wouldn’t do to have Maria Arena Bell back. Her stories… Read more »

Nikki I do not watch enough to know for sure but what little I have seen and read I would say the NEW Billy is coming on for Phyllis not Victoria which I myself think if JT stands a chance that’s the way it should go. I think they have started it with BIlly drinking again etc and JT has a knack for playing the playboy so let’s get him back to womanizing and Phyllis back to her feisty self . I think we have had enough of boring Jack and Phyllis and on again off again Billy & Victoria.… Read more »

You are so right I do feel like I accomplished a lot that needed to be done. I still remember the beautiful Christmases with the Abbott’s and the house was decorated to the nines. I read that Beth(Tracey Abbott) is coming back for the holidays. I wish they would keep her on for good. I’m just sick of that whole Newman bunch. Victoria always forgives her father no matter what he does. Nikki has been nothing but a side kick to Victor for so long and she always has the nerve to apology’s for Victor’s cruelty but she’s always on… Read more »

Ashley and Dina were both involved with Eric Garrison. Marc Mergeron was Dina’s stepson.

Of course. Duh! Thank you, Alan and Kevin for the correction. I do miss Y&R the way it used to be, too, Kevin. For some reason, I keep thinking about the plot when Katherine sent John puzzle pieces to expose Jill’s affair. Classic fun! And I love Jess Walton but I did like the vampier Jill from back in the day, too.

I would LOVE a classic soap channel. I so enjoyed the flashback on yesterday’s episode, though very brief. I’ve only been watching Y&R about 10 years or so, when it showed up on SOAPnet. I was an ABC soap fan and watched DOOL too, but rarely caught the CBS soaps back in the day. When I started watching Y&R even back then I was completely drawn in and understood why it was the #1 soap all those years.

Iakovos…I remember the puzzle too…Well, we have the memories of the good old days…I know I have brought this up a few times but it seem TPTB will not listen, at least bring the classic background music back then maybe the show will somewhat feel like it use to be…So miss the Brooks, Foster, Williams…Hey everyone, I do love change but only if it’s for the better and alot it’s not. THANKS for listening everyone.

This is not about what Ashley should do. She is hitting 60….way past her prime to chase rainbows, especially with a much younger man who is at the threshold of marrying her daughter. This is typical soap fodder. Around and around we go, everybody!!
If I were Abby, I would leave both in my dust; take a minute and walk through fresher and greener pastures.

@K/Kay.
I hear you, Kay. I am not too young to think about the old days. As I said I started watching avidly at fourteen. I am now twenty-nine and I consider fifteen years ago the ‘olden days’. Lol. I grew up watching Y&R, with my Gran. What I am saying is Mr. Bell ll would have never changed Jack’s character. This is not the true Jack.
Happy Holidays to you also, my lady. And, congrats and more power to you for getting your college degree. Later.

@K/Kay. I so agree with you, Kay. I have been lamenting Jack’s and Phyllis’s relationship forever. For one thing, this Phyllis is too young for Jack…..he’s old enough to be her father. What you are saying fits like a glove….everywhichway one looks at it. I am so glad you brought it to the fore. It makes so much sense, and I truly hope the PTB go there. Jason and Gina would be perfect together. I suppose the bosses are paving the way by having Billy suddenly needing Phyllis’s shoulder upon which to cry. Burgess and Gina would have never worked.… Read more »

I agree, CeeCee. I think pairing Jason with Gina will give EACH actor a change to reinvent their assumed characters. They will both be in a relationship that none of their predecessors has been in so it will be fresh and they will be able to make it their own. I also feel like poor Gina has been kept on a short leash. She is capable of so much more. The fact that she was duped into bedding her husband’s imposter (rape) and hasn’t been at Victor’s carotid … LITERALLY … is NOT typical of Phyllis. Oh the writers can… Read more »

I am glad to hear age was not an issue for you. I suppose if it does not matter to the people involved, then it’s no one’s business. And, I am not being facetious, here. However, did you hook-up/marry your future son-in-law? That’s my issue.

Eileen is rather ageless, and I agree fifteen years is not a big deal.
But fear not! Today Ashely finally met Dr Neville (Michael E Knight).
I saw sparks and I liked it. I want Dr Neville to fly out of the orbit of the Winter’s clan and today it finally happened. I just hope he’s on more than once a month.

CeeCee…why do you think because Ashley is “hitting 60…she is way past her prime to chase rainbows?” She’s looking pretty good for her age,” don’t you think?” And she can probably carry on a better conversation, and has had some interesting life experiences to talk about compared to Abby, etc. Some younger guys find this attractive. And I hope for anyone who reach certain cutoff ages some people have made for them, they are always chasing rainbows of many kinds, and this doesn’t mean just affairs.

Oh, Rose, my dear friend. Some men want to have kids. Ben is relatively a young man. Ashley cannot give him a child. Yes, they could adopt, but to me she is too old to start a family. It is my opinion, Rose, whether you agree with it or not. Marriages with such a big age difference….either grinder…..never work out. That’s all. ‘Nite.

CeeCee…I may have sounded a little flippant re: age, marriage and kids. It’s just that there are more kind of relationships between men and women than getting married and having a family. If there is love and respect between them I’m all for it…even if there is a difference in ages. I’ve seen and heard about some with bigger age differences that have been very successful? At the same time there are stats on the divorce rate in the US…up to 50%? I”m not sure what it was between Stitch and Ashley…sometimes there can be an adrenalin rush when colleagues… Read more »

My only issue with the age difference is that no one addresses it. They also don’t address the weirdness of this mother/daughter love triangle I mean, it’s creepy! While Ben was begging Ashely to be his, I kept waiting for her to say two things: 1. “Ben, you want children and I cannot give you that–we are at different points in our lives .” 2. “We can never be happy if our relationship is predicated upon hurting my daughter. This will never work.”

Ron

I am right with you on this one. The actress playing Abbey has really grown the past few months, and she has zilch chemistry with Stitch, who has zilch chemistry with any woman on this show. The guy needs to find an old school marm!

As I suggested a few weeks back, Ashley needs an intelligent man, and it seems that is what is happening with Neville, once the writers tone down the “Mad Doctor” motif.

No one did, Rose. I said some men, not all men. To me, fifteen years is a lifetime of a difference, regardless of respect, interests and love. But, as I have indicated, it is my opinion. People have choices. Just making a statement. Let us agree to disagree, yes? My main objection is this triangle with boyfriend, mother and daughter. I find it revolting. What can I say?

[Yakkety Sax, the theme from BENNY HILL, begins to play]

What an asinine show this has become. Ashely and Ben (please stop calling him “Stitch!”) were together a milisecond when they had DRUNKEN sex in a shower.

Abby and Ben were together having sex in bed in a hotel room a millisecond after he broke up with Victoria.

Now ask me if I give a rat’s butt who winds up with who!

And as I have said many times before, Ben falls in love with everyone! He fell in love with Victoria when she was with Billy. He fell in love with Abby when he was with Victoria. He fell in love with Ashely when he was with Abby.
He’s a confused Lothario for sure. This is why I call him Pepe Le Pew.

Try this on for size Y&R, Stitch marries Abby and they whisk off to zip code 90210 and live happily ever after. This story line along with that Noah triangle is b-o-r-i-n-g and stupid.

Ah, sweet Nikki. I, too love Ashley; always have. But, there is a limit to her youthful escapades. It is a soap, I know. …..but I would never marry a man who has slept with my mother; or, know that there is a probability that my husband and my mother still have forbidden feelings for each other. I have always had a problem when soaps play this card. Now, I can sort of accept this behavior among siblings. But, I draw the line at hopping into bed with daughters/sons-in-law. Both Victor and Nikki have done so. Victor with Sharon…DISGUSTO!!!!! And,… Read more »

@Harry.
Absolutely, Harry. You always make sense to me. I would think that in reality it’s a personal choice. I could never see myself marrying someone fifteen younger or older than I. I don’t understand why people get so upset over my being frank with my feelings. Eileen does look great. She’s beautiful. But, it doesn’t change her age. Bye.

If this triangle continues it will play out later, after Ben and Abby are married. After Ashley fainted in the snow I predict she is dying and her new love will eventually be that Dr. Neville who saved Hilary, who will no doubt find a miracle cure for Ashley as well. Personally I like to see Jenna come back, win Ben back and they go off into the sunset together. This character started off with so much potential, but the way they wrote him, from being this noble man who gave up his life to protect his mother to this… Read more »

Ashley is usually more laid back and this time she seemed pushy. If you remember she walked right over and introduced herself interrupting the conversation between Devon & the Doc. I think something is going on there for sure. Maybe she read about him. Now that he got this money from Devon Ashley could get him working in the lab.

Let’s be honest: Ashley can do waaaaaaaaaay better.

Stitch has zero chemistry with either woman. If the writers insist on keeping Stitch around they should make the character an opportunistic bed-hopping scoundrel (he’s already slept with 2 sisters and one of their mothers so it wouldn’t ex try be a stretch) because the sympathetic doc thing ain’t working.

I’m about done with this show. Victor wins again # 2,296,452. I just can’t with this crap.

Go away, Ben. No one cares. And that’s just the tip of the very cold iceberg this show has become. Where’s Gloria and Jill? Phyllis about to do Billy? No thank you. Ugh!

Michael snubbing Victor’s offer of a cookie was about the only good thing from yesterday’s epi. I do love Mariah, so there’s that.

I do love to hate him. I did enjoy Wednesday’s epi. I’d like to see Ashley front-burner, but not with Stitch. I think MEK looks better than ever and I could see the odd doctor and Ashley making an interesting couple. I like Melissa Ordway’s Abby, but I’ve never warmed to Stitch (he’s gross sleeping with mother, daughter, sister). LOVED the flashback of Jack, Vic & Nikki. I wonder if they are going to hook up Phyllis with Billy and revisit Nikki and Jack? Hmmm…

I’m used to Victor winning and it really doesnt bother me. What does is Jack always comes off like a powerless wimp! Why doesnt he start a new company and build an empire and shine without Victor able to stick his nose into it! I love Jack but he needs to lead his family for once!

MBmomof3

What bothers me most isn’t necessarily Victor winning EVERY time, but how wimpy it makes Jack look. Not a good look for one of my fave soap characters. I like that Jack more often than not takes the moral high ground. But you can be moral and a winner. Especially in fiction.

Eileen is older than my mother. My nieces are all under twelve, lol. I will not deny the age bothers me too, but it is not lascivious, as long as the people involved are consenting adults (no sharing of relatives, please. Lol) .

I do differ… that it would be great to see… a friendship… of sorts… develop between Victor and Ashley

perhaps a teasing flirtatious respect ; an eye to eye real partake of each other history… that it really did boil down to a division of power between the Abbott and Newman

that a love between these two existed but could never really go anywhere

perhaps after all these years… a bond

I hope there isn’t any marriage. Stitches character has been so desecrated that he needs to be rehabilitated. These almost incestuous storylines are too numerous for me.

On the other hand, someone raised the issue of new Billy being drawn to Phyllis. Was it clearly established that Jack and Phyllis were legally married by that crazy fellow on the island? In addition, do you think the issue of who hit the young girl has been put to rest following Adam’s trial?

I’ve missed some programs and don’t understand why Billy was the predominate guilty party regarding Paragon.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

Photo: ABC

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.

Fishburne, who collectively had won a Tony, NAACAP and Emmy Awards, will honor his longtime friend for the body of his work. Most notable among their many collaborations was when Burton served as executive producer for the 2016 remake of Roots, which starred Fishburne.
