THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: An Emotional Nick Hands Over Christian To Victor; Joshua Morrow Delivers Power Performance of the Week!

Courtesy/CBS

This week’s Newman vs Newman drama has been an emotional turn for all involved.  However, on Thursday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, it was Joshua Morrow (Nick) who took front and center stage in both a defiant and heartbreaking performance as the son of the almighty, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).

After the decision has been handed down by the judge to grant temporary custody of Christian to Victor, after Michael’s (Christian LeBlanc) hatchet job of putting into question Sharon’s (Sharon Case) mental competency, Nick decides he’ll have to change and have an attitude adjustment if he’s going to get his son back.  As much as Sharon tells Nick he could never be like Victor, Nick is beyond fed up of his father one-upping him and always “winning.”

At the house, Nick looks at himself in the mirror seething as if he will be turning a new leaf.  Will a darker Nick emerge?  As he packs Christian’s things, his upset mounts, and he says, “This is his home.”  Next, Nick heads out the door with the box of Christian’s toys and things, and Sharon follows.

At the GCAC, Nick confronts Victor and asks why is he not at his home getting ready to welcome Christian. Victor says he has staff taking care of things.  Then, Nick launches into an emotional rundown of Christian’s favorite things and everything Victor should know about them if he is going to take care of the young boy.  It’s a well-done monologue by Morrow; as Nick pulls the items out of the box one-by-one.  Victor fires back that he’s causing a scene as Sharon looks on.  Nick warns his father that Christian’s a real person and not to screw this up.  He declares war on his father, and says the two of them will never come back from this.  Nick says he will take everything from Victor, especially family!

Now alone and back home, Sharon applauds Nick for standing up to Victor, and thinks his father was truly scared.  Nick says he knows now who he has to be.

In the most heart-tugging moment of the episode, as Nick is playing with Christian, Sharon answers the doorbell.  Enter Victor and a nanny.  Nick reassures Christian everything will be OK.  Sharon and Nick in tears say their farewells to the young boy.  Victor says to Nick, “Sorry, it’s the only way.”  Nick tells his father to remember those words, because he’ll be hearing them back.

Throughout this episode, Joshua Morrow showed why he is such important and key member of the cast as he delivered to the audience all of the emotions going on inside of Nick; as the son he loves is ripped away by Nick’s own father. The devastating loss and betrayal were just too much for Nick to take.  Now the question is: how will he seek revenge on his father, and will he win custody of Christian back?

Watch the final scene of the episode below, and then let us know, what you thought of Joshua’s performance, and Victor winning custody of Christian, via the comment section below.

I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment. Morrow was absolutely fantastic in these scenes. My favorite was the one at the GCAC where Nick confronted Victor. The writing and dialogue was sensational and Morrow hit it out of the park. Bravo to Y&R.

I am sure a lot of viewers noticed that the scene mentioned above, Nick looking in the mirror, then packing up all of the baby’s toys, leaves the house with Sharon right behind him, both evidently forgetting that Sharon said she just put Christian down for his nap.Distraught I guess, but so much so, you run out leaving the center of all this attention home alone!

To be honest, I didn’t know Josh Morrow had it in him. His performance has been real, raw and gut wrenching. He’s actually put tears in my eyes. I hate child custody stories but Josh, along with Eric and Sharon, have made this an emotionally compelling story. It’s really well written and well acted.

Joshua did a wonderful job and it was the first time in a long time that I felt emotional for a character on Y&R….

I was cheering Victor on!
Only because Nick needs to grow-up. He is a manchild, a Pouty weakling.
Nick is a sponge. He lives off everyone he’s with/free rent.

Victor will take good care of Christian.
Thing is; Victor has no intention of keeping Christian he’s simply slapping his pouty son down to make a man of him..
Also-
Nick brought Skanky into his life, again and that is doom, absolutely doom being with her.
Nick now hopefully will grow up and stop having pouty hissy fits.
fighting Victor via hissy fits will not work and Nick is no Adam, so he’s never going to win.

Nick needs to grow-up, and what, to be the s.o.b he has for a father? A father that has to control and pit one child against another. Nick has fought forever against all that, and you call him a weakling? He certainly does pay his own way,you must have missed him giving Sharon room & board money the other day. I dont call a man weak, that fights against his father, who only wants to own and control his own kids with his power and wealth.First his child is ripped away by the lunatic Dr.,kept by Sharon, and literally ripped… Read more »

Nick is a total loser.
After the divorce, he had a ton of money and he never bought a house, he never gave his family a home.
He sponged off of daddy living free in that tiny whatever it was a renovated garage lol
Nick is a pouty weenie.
Adam had power and he and Victor had an understanding, Nick is just a hissyfit sniveller.
He will never ever best Victor as his brother Adam.

I miss Adam.. I miss Adam and Victor they had game.

You are SuOOO funny. I am sure not going to argue with someone who doesn’t know what the hell they are talking about!I’ve watched Nick since he was born, and the rest of the Newmans. I guess you don’t know what a real man is really like. If you like controlling,dishonest,browbeating, money hungry,cruel and deceitful men, then honey, you are more than welcome to Adam and Victor.

hi Violet Lemm..
Nick is a weenie, he is hissy fit pouter and a sponge and that is not manly he’s a pouty brat that always blames his messed-up life on his daddy.
Nick never had the strength to grow up.

Perhaps now he will find his way to manhood, but it’s doubtful.
He will once again marry Sharon, his crutch to lean on, his partner, to fight his big bad daddy, they can sit on the couch and pout together that daddy was mean to them..
Nick will never best his daddy and he should create his own life and move on..

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Don Diamont & Scott Clifton Shine In Father/Son Scenes; As Bill Watches Liam’s Meltdown Over the Accident that Killed Vinny

On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, emotional two-person scenes were the order of the day featuring three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Scott Clifton (who may nab a nominations next year for this story) and longtime soap vet, Don Diamont.

In story, Dollar Bill has done everything to protect his son by covering up all the evidence in his attempt to save Liam from surely a murder sentence and going to prison.

Courtesy/CBS

Bill’s theory: if anyone were to find out that Liam was driving Bill’s car when suddenly out of nowhere came Vinny (Joe LoCicero) – who Liam hates – and he hit him with the car and fatally killed the guy, they would think he had intent and motive. (However, to us there has to be more to the story! Did Vinny just randomly happen to be on the road that Liam and Bill were driving on and walking across it?)

At Bill’s place, Liam is agonizing as he keeps flashing back to the accident.  When Bill comes in from a morning jog, Liam is astonished that his father was out jogging, when they are in deep hot water for covering up their now hit and run.  Bill gets angry and tells him he actually went to see if there are were any cameras near the accident and he is happy to report there were none, so Liam is in the clear.  Therefore, Liam needs to keep his mouth shut and let this go and move on with his life and reuniting with Hope (Annika Noelle).

Not able to live with the cover-up, the lies, and what he did, Liam is insisting he has to go to the police, but Bill shouts: “You are not going to the police!” Liam goes on to his own subplot theory that they can say he hit an animal and then turn themselves in. Bill keeps firing back at his son, that he cannot do anything of the sort. He has done everything to protect his son in this mess and Liam could screw that all up with one wrong move.  Bill says, “All you have to do is…” and Liam fires back, “Pretend it never happened.”

It is then that Bill tells Liam that killing Vinny will haunt him whether he’s behind bars or a free man, and that he should opt for the latter.  Now unraveling, Liam’s convinced the police will figure out their cover-up. Just then, Bill pulls out a news report on his phone about the hit-and-run that has no leads and no ID of the body.  He assures his son there will never be any leads because he took care of everything.

Just then, Hope texts Liam wondering where he is for their lunch date.  Bill tells Liam to text her back saying something came up, he is in no condition to see anyone till he pulls himself together.  Liam texts back that he can’t make it.  When Hope texts back in response, “I hope you’re okay,” that sets up the end of the episode where Liam begins to hyperventilate and cannot catch his breathe, and is frightened and grief-stricken, and horrified at what he has done.  Bill comes to his aid and tells him he will not let anything happen to his son, and to dig deep to put this accident behind him.  Bill expresses that if Liam can’t do it himself, to lean on him.

However, Vinny was just ID’d in the hospital morgue by Finn (Tanner Novlan), so there’s that!

Kudos to both Scott Clifton and Don Diamont for the riveting scenes between father and son within the episode.

So, what did you think of Scott and Don’s performance? How will Bill and Liam be able to continue to cover-up the hit and run of Vinny? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, watch the final moments from the episode below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill and Liam’s Car Ride Has Life-Altering Consequences

On Monday’s The Bold and the Beautiful, fans were shocked by the final moments of the episode leaving viewers, who knew that this week the show was promoting a murder mystery, just what will go down from here?

After Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Annika Noelle) looked to be having a moment where they were finally finding their way back to one another, while Bill (Don Diamont) was talking about their children to Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), and having some tequila at the same time, that set up the kick-off to a new story arc.

Things will look pretty bad for Liam after he told Hope his feelings for Vinny, who is out on bail.  As viewers know, Vinny switched the DNA results to make it look as if Liam was originally the father to Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) baby, not Finn (Tanner Novlan).

Liam shares his feelings to Hope on the guy, stating: “I think I hate him. He treated our lives like a game.” He then advises Hope to keep her guard up in case he comes around looking for Thomas (Matthew Atkinson). Hope says he doubts Vinny will approach anyone.

When Bill and Brooke come to the cabin and Bill says some kind words to Hope about how much his son loves her, he exits with Liam.  Outside Bill tells Liam to drive his car home because he has been drinking.  Liam has never gotten to drive Bill’s car.  Once on the road, Liam is all smiles, as he says to his dad that things are finally looking up for him and Hope, and then suddenly Liam hits the brakes!

Liam is shaken as he knows he hit something and is visibly shaken. He utters, “Dad!” As the duo run out of the car they see a male body laying in the road… it’s Vinny (Joe LoCicero)! And the episode comes to a conclusion.

So, what do you think happens next? Vinny dies and there is a cover-up? Is there still a mystery? Will we go back in time and find out how Vinny was in the middle of the road anyway? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Cameron Gets a Gravesite Visit From Zander; A Very Preggers Brook Lynn Returns

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital revealed the return of Chad Brannon as Cameron Webber’s deceased father, Zander Smith, as well as the return of Amanda Setton in the role of Brook Lynn.

In story, an emotional Cameron (William Lipton) is overcome by all the loss in his life as he visits the gravesite of his biological father, Zander Smith, on the heels of losing his stepfather, Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth).  As Cameron looks at his father’s grave he goes on to say that he finally had a complete family unit for it to be taken away like everything else and everyone else he has cared about in his life including his friends, Dev and Oscar.

Cameron begins to lament what would life would be like for him, if Zander would have stuck around, instead of getting himself shot at such a young age.

 

Then, Zander appears to Cameron stating, “I get it, it’s all my fault.”  Cameron goes on to tear into Zander about the way his life ended, while Zander thinks he can still teach his son a thing or two, but Cam says he had the chance to be his dad and really blew it.  No matter what, Zander explains, “I will always be your dad.”  Zander understands that Cameron is angry and feeling all hope is lost, but tries to rally his son to not give in to that way of thinking, because he has so much potential.

Zander truly does not want to see his son give in to the same impulses that he did when he was young and that he wants Cameron to make the right decisions while at this crossroads in his young life.  As Joss (Eden McCoy) and Trina  (Sydney Mikala) show up at the cemetery, the ghost of Zander disappears.  Joss wants Cameron to stop the pity party as they all have been there, and all have lost people they love, but shares that they will get through it together. Cameron looks back and sees his father as he says he is loser just like his dad.  But, Trina and Joss tell Cam they don’t hang out with losers as Zander looks on.

Elsewhere, Brook Lynn, who is hiding outside the Q mansion, comes inside once alone with Michael (Chad Duell) and reveals she is pregnant.  Michael figures out the baby daddy is Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), but Brook Lynn is not sure if she will even tell Valentin.  Michael warns her that she will be playing with fire with Valentin if she is not truthful.

Finally, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) has realized she is in a bad, bad way with all the creepy vibes she is now getting from Peter (Wes Ramsey).  She knows she has to protect her unborn child any way she can.

So, what did you think of the scenes between William Lipton and Chad Brannon? Are you happy to see Amanda Setton back as Brook Lynn? How will Maxie get away once and for all from Peter?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
