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: Thomas Gets Creepy As The Hope Mannequin Talks To Him

Leave it to the good folks over at The Bold and the Beautiful to incorporate a play on their headline-grabbing mannequin use during Covid-19.  B&B was the first American television show back in production during the pandemic, and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, told the media how they were using mannequins in several scenes in place of real actors when it comes to some intimate moments between characters.  Since the time, the show has also brought in real-life partners of their cast members when needed for a make-out scene, etc.

And that brings us to Thursday’s shocking reveal on the CBS daytime drama series, when Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), who seemed to be a more centered-version of himself of late, takes home with him the Hope for the Future shipment and opens the box.  He is for a surprise when inside the box is a lifelike mannequin of Hope  (Annika Noelle).  And from there, things spiral out of control, as viewers learned Thomas’ obsession with Hope is alive and well.

Thomas just can’t believe how life-like the mannequin of Hope is – saying to himself, “No wonder they use it for the Hope for the Future line.”  But then  after he takes the mannequin out of the box, it starts talking to him … in Hope’s voice, begging him to allow her to stay there with him and not put her back in the boX saying, .Please don’t lock me up in that box again.   I’ve been away from you too long… I know you want to be with me too.”  Then, Thomas who is having a very hard time between reality and this apparent hallucination shouts: “You’re not real!” What’s wrong with me?”

 

Perhaps Liam said it best earlier in the episode when Hope was speaking about Thomas to him, when he uttered.“I get creeped out just thinking about Thomas.”

Watch some of the Hope-mannequin action with Thomas below. Then weigh-in, what do you think of this plot twist? Share your thoughts in the comment section,

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Shares & Performs Emotional Tribute To Her Late Parents

It has been a challenging few years for former soap and current Selling Sunset star, Chrishell Stause, who is currently still in the running for the Mirror Ball Trophy following Monday night’s competition on Dancing with the Stars.

Last night, Chrishell shared in the pre-dance package that she was performing a contemporary routine with her pro partner, Gleb Savchenko, in honor of both of her parents who died from lung cancer in July of 2020 and April 2019.

Stause expressed: “They were really loving people. Some of my best memories are with my mom, dancing with her in the living room.  No one would be more excited about me being here and doing the show than her.” (referring to her mom who passed away this summer).  She continued on to say: “Right before I dance, I really feel her calm me, encourage me. That has been the most special thing I will take away from this show.  I know that my parents are with me. My mom’s name was Renee Stause, and my dad’s name was Jeff Stause. And this dance is for them.”

 

Dancing to “Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Chrishell and Gleb delivered the most emotional performance of the night.  And the judges took notice, as Carrie Ann Inaba said to Stause: “You poured your heart and soul into that dance.   Bruno added: “That was so emotionally engaging, so raw, so truthful, irresistible because you gave everything you have.”  While the three judges including Derek Hough also gave a rougher technical critique of her to improve upon next week, Chrishell and Gleb still scored all eights and 24 out of 30 overall.

At the end of the night, during the reveal of who was safe and who was in the bottom two, host Tyra Banks revealed that Chrishell and Gleb were safe.

Then, after combining the scores and fans’ votes, in the bottom two were Johnny Weir and Vernon Davis.  In a close decision, Derek chose to save Johnny, and Carrie Ann chose Vernon. So, it was up to Bruno to cast the deciding vote and he saved Johnny, sending Davis, the former NFL Pro football star, home.

Watch Chrishell’s emotional dance below.   Then let us know if you are rooting for Chrishell and what you thought of the very personal story she shared last night via the comment section below.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Jesse Metcalfe Eliminated, Chrishell Stause Gets A Surprise From NKOTB

Last night on  ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, another soap opera alumni’s journey on the ballroom dance floor came to an end, when Jesse Metcalfe’s (Passions, Desperate Houswives and Dallas) ) and his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, were sent home by the judges after landing in the bottom two.

After combining the judges scores and fan voting at home, the other couple joining Jesse and Sharna in the bottom two were  Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd.  This season it is up to the judges to choose who stays and who goes when forced with picking between the two lowest scoring couples of the night.. Bruno chose Vernon, Carrie Ann followed and Derek also revealed he would have saved Davis or Metcalfe as well.

With Metcalfe eliminated following last’s week’s departure of Ex-Another World’s Anne Heche, that leaves only Chrishell Stause still in the running vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy from the world of daytime drama.

 

Here’s a recap of what went down on the dance floor for Metcalfe, Stause and Davis last night.

Jesse Metcalfe and Sharna Burgess – (Tango) – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Dancing to the classic by Tears for Fears, Metcalfe promised in the pre-package to loosen up and show a more human and vulnerable side to his dancing.  However, although there was a bit more coming from Jesse this outing, the judges criticized him for needing more technique than just performance. SCORE 19 out of 30

Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko (Cha-Cha)  – “The Right Stuff”

Revealing to all on the pre-package, Chrishell is a huge New Kids on the Block fan from back in her teens, and was stoked to dance to their song during the night’s 80’s competition,   However, during the performance, while Stause has shown improvement, this time the judges noted she seemed to slow down to much during the dance and also she needs to watch her footwork.  After Gleb and Chrishell danced, Tyra Banks had a surprise for Chrishell when the NKOTB sent in a viral video message to their biggest fan!  Stause was overjoyed.  SCORE 19 out of 30

Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd –  (Tango) – “Living’ on a Prayer”

Performing to Bon Jovi’s classic “Living on a Prayer”, Davis donned some rocker dude long locks and hit the floor with Murgatroyd, but the former pro football star looked stiff moving around the ballroom.  Judge Bruno noted that his footwork was a bit flat.  However, Carrie Ann shared she liked the quality of movement he was showing them.  SCORE 21 out of 30

So after looking at the clips of their performances below, did the right person get sent home in Metcalfe vs. Davis?  Do you think Chrishell can hold out longer on the series through the next rounds of competition?  Let us know in the comments section. (Also check out the moment when NKOTB message to Stause is played during the broadcast.)
