THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Billy Hits The Sheets With Summer As Philly and Shick Go Bust!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, the CBS daytime drama stuck with its “A” storyline where Sharon lets Nick have it (and literally too, with that slap to the face) during her nuptials to the man she has always loved.  This all comes about because Sharon, who was late arriving to her own wedding, decided she would out Nick in front of his family and their friends for once again hooking up with Phyllis.

Once the truth come out, Billy and Phyllis who are attending the wedding are gut-punched.  Billy had just proposed to Phyllis.  Now he is devastated and Phyllis admits to him and everyone at the wedding that it is true … she slept with Nick, but it was one time.  After trying to get all the major participants in the reveal out of the church, the drama ramps up even more.

The episode featured top-notch performances by Jason Thompson (Billy), Gina Tognoni (Phyllis), Sharon Case (Sharon), and Joshua Morrow (Nick). In key scenes at the Abbott house, Billy kicks Phyllis to the curb, even though she tries to plead her case as to why the one night tryst with Nick went down.  He is not having any of it. After Phyllis is gone, he promises Jack (Peter Bergman) that he enter rehab tomorrow for his gambling addiction, but first he needs to clear his head.

Meanwhile back at Sharon’s, after Mariah (Camryn Grimes) and Noah (Robert Adamson) leave them to hash things out, its apparent that Sharon is not going to forgive Nick, or get back together with him.  She cries and pours her heart out that the fact that of all people Nick went and slept with Phyllis reminds her of all the pain that relationship cost her and them after Cassie died.  Ultimately, Nick packs his bags, just as an upset Faith (Alyia Alyn Lind) comes home. After their daughter runs upstairs, Nick tells Sharon before he leaves that he is not giving up on them being together.  Sharon says she loves Nick, but she does not want to be with him, and he has changed since the J.T. masquerade stunt, and forming his company, Dark Horse.

Elsewhere, as Phyllis drinks out of tiny vodka bottles in what looks to be a hotel room, Summer (Hunter King) is now at the GCAC bar and Billy shows up. Summer asks why he called her and was surprised to hear from him. Billy says she was right, Phyllis is not the woman for him and now that he is no longer with her … he then feels up her legs and begins to seduce her.  The two take it to Summer’s place and hit the sheets, as we cut to Phyllis having a meltdown knowing in her heart that Billy may be having sex with her daughter.

It was bound to come out. Question is who ends up with whom? Sharon/Rey (obviously), Phyllis/Nick or Jack, Billy/Summer (fling) or maybe back to Victoria? Hopefully, they don’t pair Victoria with Nate. I don’t feel the chemistry.

I think it sick for the writer’s to have a daughter sleep with her mom’s boy friend no matter what its sick and you have family betraying one another that a wrong thing to do the writer must not have any moral for your mind to think like that.need to have a example of how family should be theres plenty of drama without no family values

Don’t pair summer with billy that would be sick what happened to the age difference on this show?

Harry

Summer will become pregnant with Billy’s baby and Phyllis and Billy will reunite and raise the baby as their own. Grandma Phyllis will also play Mommy Phyllis and Summer will be off to the nunnery.

I agree, Lew….actually, I can’t see Nate with anyone. He is soooo blah!!
Something fishy is goung on with Ashley—-maybe it’s that Andre guy who is so chummy with Ashley? What’s going on between them? Very suspicious.

I suspect the Andrew works for the lab that Jack had his DNA test done, and it will turn out Jack is John Abbott’s son– since ED is leaving Jack will be proven to be a real Abbott and will take over Jabot once again, kicking Ashley out for good, for lying to him.

I’ve loathed Philly since their inception so I’m glad they’re effectively killed. Even if they get back together, they will always be trash. He revenge banged her kid. It’s unforgivable.

Phyllis is better off without Billy he is a very weak child, Summer got into his head from the beginning with the gambling how could he ever think he could out smart Victor when he can’t even out wit that bimbo child wanna be tart. I’m speaking of the characters not the actors.

Was sad about Nick & Sharon, but I’ve never liked Phyllis with Billy and I despise Summer’s new “aggressive slut” persona. So whatever happens there is fine. But I will NOT accept Sharon with grubby user Rey. I want him GONE on the same train outta town with Shauna and Nate.

Hey, my beautiful friend, Soaphound.
Uh-ha—agree….but don’t forget Arturo and the little sister ( forgot her name) . What the heck? Rey and Sharon? Oh, Lordy Lord!! Poor Sharon. Let’s protest, Soaphound!! LOL.
What has been my litany since nuPhilly came to town? Never did it for me. Gina is an impeccable actress, yet, I can’t see her in this role.
Thompson? Well…..he does not spark the bad-boy-rascally Billy Miller. So upside-down; inside-out sexy. …..could forgive him anything.
Summer? Like mother like daughter? Phyllis was never the role model. However ( and I am aware I am being unfair, judgmental and unreasonable; but I don’t care), as with Miller, I forgave Stafford everything. I guess it’s simply the fact that my antipathy for Philly is as strong as ever.
If only Michelle Stafford and Jeff Branson would come back to steam up my screen. My heart does summersaults just thinking about their breathless lovemaking ( as fake as it was, LOL).
I feel miserable for Sharon and Nick. I truly thought that this time they had finally crossed every dark obstacle and stepped on the sunny side of their life and love.
I’s a soap–granted….but, I am tired of going around in circles.
❤️

Soaphound

Yes Celia, our Billy (Miller) has it all, though I still wish they’d let his hair grow out. The proof is in how great he is at playing a normal nice guy, just as great as playing the adorably flawed Billy Abbott. Oy, what a guy! Jeff Branson and Michelle Stafford? When those two met for trysts in Phyllis’ penthouse, I’ll bet it registered on the Richter scale!

Pretty vile all around. Y&R is starting to feel like AMC in its death spriral.
Billy Abbott as played by Jason Thompson has been utterly unbearable pretty much since he came out of his coma.
This hate sex with Summer is a low point so disgusting I don’t see a way back for this character. Summer has been awful, terrible, ever since she returned, but for Billy to use her as a tool to hurt Phyllis and Nick is unforgivable. She’s a damaged, stupid young woman, raised by people with no boundaries or any sense of right and wrong but Billy knows better, and he chose – a grown man with children no less – to behave in an utterly depraved manner with a disturbed young woman, to use her, the way Victor used Patty almost, to hurt those who hurt him.
What a mess Mal has made of this show.

Bart

I CONCUR 100%!!

Jason Thompson as Billy Abbott was a HUGE miscast, IMO – he’s very grating and just not a good actor.

And yes – Mal-ignancy Young has tarnished “Y & R”!!

Summer is an adult who has sexually harassed her mother’s boyfriend for months.

The way Paul survived after he raped Christine. Or the way Sharon survived after she slept with her kids’ grandfather.

Once in a while y n r does some brilliant sequences like billy n summer hitting the sheets. …while phylis cries n regrets.
However i wish there was more at play leading up , like maybe Victoria rejects billy when he needs her reliable comfort so in desperation he turns to his biggest fan Summer or maybe Summer catches Kyle with Lola sharing a moment so she reaches out to a vulnerable Billy. I wish the show dug deeper with the motivations besides the easy Summers a slut and Billys a horny screwup.
Also speaking of compicated, the mariah, tessa and noah scenes were voud of any tension. Noah seemed bored with his ex and sis hooking up. Tessa getting blackmailed by her sisters thugs is ff material. Theres no rooting force for ‘Messa’. Shame, Its a waste of Camyrns talents
I further enjoyed Sharon standing up against Phyliss at the gcac.
All in all a surprisingly satisfying climax to the Summer/ Billy/ Phylis drama!

I really hate Sharon and Nick busted up! I don’t like the fact that you would have a scene worth a DAUGHTER HAVING SEX WITH HER MOTHER’S MANTHAT’S REALLY PATHETIC and OUTRAGEOUS! I WOULDN’T WASN’T MY GRANDCHILDREN TO EVER WATCH ANYTHING LIKE THAT, because THAT’S SO NOT OF GOD! MR. YOUNG, YOU COULDN’T GET ANY LOWER THAN THAT YOU’VE REALLY MADE A MESS OF THE STORIES, AS WE ALL GREW UP TO KNOW THEM!

Although I’m disappointed they didn’t end up together, Sharon Case delivered in her scenes – not just in her reveal at the church, but back at the ranch when she explained to Nick why they shouldn’t be together. Even though she didn’t come right out and say it, the subtext was that she wasn’t going to be like Nikki and “stand by her man” no matter what. I much prefer when they write Sharon with some backbone and determination. They’ve made her character almost unbearable to watch in recent years, so I hope the writers are correcting that course.

Timmm
Timmm

Yes, everyone did a good job on Friday. My favorite part was after everyone left the church, Nikki and Victor sat there alone and and Victor just tilted his head as if to say, “Hmm.”

The fallout?

Phyllis dies in the hotel bed! I know its rough but her portrayer has ZERO likability and it frees up some cash.

I dont mind Billy and Summer together [Bummer!] because he is a loser and she is a sour puss! I think she will get pregnant and leave town without telling anyone and reappear at some point with a new Abbott/Newman!

Sharon will end up with Rey and I can put new batteries in my remote!

Nick. I would like to see him with Mac. That way, when Nikki is exposed as JT’s killer, who will Nick support?

PS: Since it seems Michael Baldwin has basically been written off the show, you might as well put Lauren with Jack. Once he has his heart attack and is in a coma, his dad will come to visit him. Maybe Jerry Douglas? Did he have a twin Deana slept with?

Momo

OMG! I don’t know about Summer and Billy. It seems a bit incestuous. It will certainly anger Phyllis and Nick.

I wanted Sharon and Nick to marry, to have their happily ever after. I feel bad for Faith.

I don’t want Sharon with Rey. I don’t want Rey with anyone because I want him to leave.

Billy was married to Summer’s Aunt Victoria for quite some time. He is the father of her cousins, so isn’t this story a bit icky. She’s sleeping with someone she grew up knowing as an Uncle right? Did the new head writer not do his research?

Celia
Celia

Hi, stevie g,
Yes, quite disgusting….but, nothing new. That’s keeping with the soap opera-morality.
Remember Victor and Sharon? Yuck…..what about General Hospital?—so many ‘trilogies’, albeit I was not watching when Sonny and Sam slept together—-Alexis is her mother….and on and on and on. No surprise for me.
Everyone pretty much slept with everyone else…..I said this before: musical beds.
Soaps!! it is what it is. I wish a pristine, chaste couple would fall from the sky to show us that dignity and a healthy sense of a moral code still exist,m but I accept the fact that we are in the world of soaps, where self-respect has “gone with the wind”.

I buckle

No! Think it is excellent needs to have a good shake up every now and then ….. Nicholas and Phyllis need to become the new power couple in GC. Please come up with a better story line for Victoria!??

As Lew said….sooner or later ‘it was bound to come out’.
No surprise…..none of it!!
Except; except; except Ashley’s secret. Did she switch Jack’s DNA test? That new (Asian) guy is iffy….hmmmmm. So mundane!! Yet, surprising from Ashley.
Is Jack John Abbott’s son, afterall? We were all holding on to that presumption.
This is soooo NOT Ashley…..if true? I’ll be floored!!
Yeah, I will……goody-two-shoes-Ashley? Prim and proper, Ashley? Nah—-Gran says, yah!! LOL.

Ron

Hi Celia–
I agree with you about Ashley– I think she had her hands in the DNA test just to get rid of Jack. No one can trust Dina’s memory about Jack’s “inception.” She had lovers, but it doesn’t necessarily mean John isn’t Jack’s father. I think this revelation is what becomes her Y and R exit (at least temporarily.)

Celia
Celia

Hi, Ron,
Thank you for seeing the sudden duplicitous nature which is so out of character for Ashley.
This transformation is not something I expected….. If Ashley must leave; why not give her a dignified exit?
I am not liking this development one bit, my friend.

Soaphound

Hi Celia! Hope you and yours are well. First..the Asian office guy is kinda cute. Second…Ashley is, I fear, just as Kyle described. Her railroading of Traci got me suspicious and knowing Eileen is leaving (criminal!) only confirms it. She’s guilty of something MAJOR! Finally some good drama…without excess baggage like Nate, Rey, or Shauna.

Celia

Hey, Soaphound,
As I said to Ron, TPTB should have never written Ashley as a traitor……it simply does not go with the flow that is Ashley.
I hope I am wrong, and that there is a perfectly sensible explanation?

Let’s not forget Ashely stoled Victor’s sperm to impregnate herself with Abby. Then she lied to Brad for years about Abby’s parentage. I had to laugh today when Tracy said,”Ashely would never do anything unethical.”

I had forgotten about the Victor DNA stuff, Harry……I guess Ashley is as imperfect as any soap “operatress”. LOL.
I always believe you, Harry…..shame on those who didn’t/don’t, Double LOL?
You stuck to your guns, just as I am sticking to mine. Kiki is Nina’s daughter…….i have been reciting those words for a few years ( two, perhaps?)….. everyone thinks I’m nuts.
It’s okay, I’m used to it, Harry…..my sister just regaled me with a throw pillow which says, ” My family tree is full of nuts”…. story of my life.
Trust me, Harry, I am as sane as you!

Harry

Celia, please do not do that to yourself. When I complain about someone or something driving me crazy, I am invariably confronted with the response,”Well, that’s a short drive for you.” Somehow, I think that is a much longer drive for you, Miss Celia.

Harry
Harry

I like to think I am the sort who never says,”I told you so” but it’s so seldom that I am right, I feel that I must. I told you so!! I predicted right here in this forum several times, and many months ago that Ashely doctored the DNA test results. In fact, I guessed she had done this the day Dina’s disastrous documentary aired in which someone put in the footage of her tearfully confessing that Jack was the result of an extramarital affair. No one believed me. It was clear Ictor (Victor) and Vile (Kyle) didn’t do it and Ashely had the means, opportunity and certainly the motive. No one believed me. It’s clear she had not banked on Billy enjoying the role of CEO as much as he did. She had planned on his changing the Blood/Abbott clause before he handed the CEO reigns over to Ashely. Ashely had this planned from the get go taking advantage of her mother’s confusion. It was a really cruel thing to do–not just to Jack but to Dina as well. But Ashely never got over the humiliation of being publicly outted as not being the biological daughter of John Abbott. And when Jack had to impose the Blood Abbot clause in order to save his CEO position, something in Ashely snapped. So this is Ashely’s exit plan–she may leave Jabot in a straight jacket and go back to the mental asylum.

Good grief, I’m chuckling at all the clutching of pearls. A woman sleeping with her mom’s boyfriend is not exactly something new or shocking in daytime soaps. (And if you’re worried about younger members of your family seeing such scenes, why are you letting them watch at all? Nearly every storyline on a soap features some action that is morally reprehensible.) I remember, what 20 years ago, or 25, on “Guiding Light” when Blake (then the fabulous Sherry Stringfield) seduced her mom Holly’s boyfriend — who was also scandalously older than her. It wasn’t a new story then — but it was great soap opera (and Blake and Ross went on to become a beloved couple).

Alan

I don’t think it’s the fact that Summer slept with Billy but the lack of motivation or character development that makes this feel like a logical next step in the story.

Harry

Remember when Tadd the Cadd from AMC slept with Marion Colby, the mother of his girlfriend, Liza? Back then, Tadd the Cadd wore leather pants and was Marion’s boy toy. She actually paid him for his, ahem, services. But this was the 80s–we seem to be a lot more uptight these days.

Celia

Leather pants? No way!! …..There’s something to be said about guys in leather pants—just thinking about it makes me break into peals of laughter, Harry. Do you have a pair?
I like leather skirts with the slit up the front of the left leg…. LOL….but pants? Even on a woman; yuck!!
I am going to try to pull a scene from Tad ( or is it Thad?) the Cad’s “pants of leather” days….

Harry

Celia, it was the 80s–you weren’t even a glint in your Daddy’s eye. There’s something a bit paradoxical about the 80s. They were innocent times but at the same time they were more progressive times. I don’t know quite how to explain it.

Allen saint james

That’s a perfect way to describe the 80s!

Shay
Shay

@Harry….You really have perfectly summed up the divine dichotomy that was the ‘80’s! When I reminisce about that fabulous decade, the thing that most stands out in my mind is the vibrant, joyous, incredible freedom it encompassed, whilst, first and foremost, celebrating the individual and their right of expression…whether in fashion, music, popular culture, speech…whatever! It truly was “vive la difference!” And that is precisely what made it so immensely naughty and fun, even in the generally more conservative times in which we lived. Today it’s all about forced sameness and repression …being told what we can say, think, feel and do…and grouped into divisive camps and expected to behave accordingly. When one considers it all, this is actually quite absurd for the now-matured former children of those wild and wonderful years to be far more restricted in thought and deed in the current environment than we ever were as tweeners, teens and young adults!!!!

Alan
Alan

The Tad/Marion plot made sense because Tad came back to Pine Valley as a schemer and conniver and character driven writing made the story make sense. Y&R seemed to just assume viewers would fill in motivation for Dumber lusting after her mother’s boyfriend (and former uncle) and cut to the chase as it were.

There have been several daytime storylines with this theme (GL’s Holly and Blake; RH’s Rae and Kimberly; AMC’s Liza and Marion) but those stories were playing out slowly with clear motivation and character development. Everything starts with good writing,

AVP
AVP

Off-topic, but is Ashley’s “exit” storyline boring or what? I keep tuning in, and it’s the same story about Jabot…not sure why they would put her in-charge at Jabot or pair her with Neil when she will be exiting the canvas soon.

Celia
Celia

Hi, AVP,
TPTB are turning Ashley into a shrew. She has done something very dispicable by ’employing’ Andrew to tamper with Jack’s DNA test……I mean, why introduce this guy, who is the IT person at the Lab? The clandestine meetings point in one direction only. …..Ashley did something underhanded.
My grandmother said that Phyllis did work at a DNA Lab in NYC when she first came to Genoa City. Their ‘accidental’ meeting was no accident….
Now, this Andrew guy is a definite giveaway. The only question is: which DNA test was altered? Jack/Phillip Chancellor;? Jack/Victor ?, or Jack/John Abbot?
I would guess John Abbott?…. Ashley wanted Jack’s position ….to be at the helm. Treachery!! LOL.
I just never expected the writers to go there? Why? So that Ashley would leave shrouded in shame?
We shall see..

Celia, I haven’t watched for a few days, not sure I want to now-STUPID! & if I have to hear the term “Blood Abbott Clause” one more time…

Harry
Harry

Celia, I hate to disagree with you but Ashely has always been a bit of a shrew. Now, she’s just an older shrew. I love the character and the actress but she’s never been a really good person. Her daddy called her “my beauty” and she developed a sense of entitlement derived from being Daddy’s Little Girl. When Tracy struggled with an eating disorder, depression and a horrible case of insecurity, big sister ignored her–so did Daddy. Indeed. When Brad the pool boy started to fall for Tracy, Ashley tried to talk him out of it and cruelly cited her little sister’s weight issues. It wasn’t just Lauren who was cruel to Tracy about her weight, it was big sister Ashely as well. When Ashely discovered that John Abbott wasn’t her biological father, she was so devastated that she had to go live with Victor and Nikki. Once there, she embarked upon an affair with Victor under Nikki’s nose. I already referenced what Ashely did with Victor’s sperm in order to impregnate herself with his child. Later she slept with her daughter’s fiance Stitch and luster after him during the duration of their subsequent marriage. In short, this is not totally out of character for Ashley. She is not a nice person, never has been.

Celia
Celia

When you’re right, you’re right, Harry…..my Gran said the same as you; that is, Ashley shows an impeccable facade of the affable, loving, dignified human being, sister, mother, professional and friend.
I guess I do not know her as well as you and others, albeit I’ve been watching since I was in diapers…..I suppose that by the time I began to take serious interest, I liked what I saw…..as I did with Original Phyllis—-I am a very visual girl—not always a good thing—I’m learning, in my old age, my friend…..I’m learning. What ‘shiny’ things we see are not always awash with authenticity.
And, albeit, I do remember, I think, when she impregnated herself with Victor’s yucky ‘manna’ from the devil, not the gods, I don’t know why?? My grandmother doesn’t really remember. She thinks it was because of some kind of payback?
I don’t remember the part where she slept with stitch. But, they’re all loose women on soaps. They should have an orgy and get it over with. LOL.
I have heard so many recounts from my Gran, myGG ( RIP), and great-aunt that sometimes I think I’ve actually watched the episodes….confusing. Know what I mean?
Thanks for the recall, Harry.

I have for the most part stopped watching, but once in a while catch a show, and I caught this one. All I can say is I thought they had destroyed the character Billy when he slept with his brother’s wife– now Billy is sleeping with his girlfriends’s daughter, his kid’s cousin– his ex wife’s niece— this has completely trashed his character.

And Jason T looked so uncomfortable in those scenes– you can tell they were barely kissing- a lot stage kissing, where it looks like you’re kissing but not– but even if this was a good idea for a story line, the two actors have no chemistry to make this even remotely believable.

But this is the kind of cheap dramatics that come from writers that don’t know how to write a real story– it is one of the reason, I am a soap fan in mourning.

dmr
dmr

YES! The storyline was rushed and did not make any sense. There was no real reason as to why Summer came back hating her mother. There was no build-up. What ruined it for me, happened in the beginning, the gambling “party” that Summer threw, trying to entice Billy back to gambling. It was just lame! I really dislike the character (Summer).

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Learns The Truth, Finn Is Reeling, Mike is Too Hard To Handle, Julian Sets A Trap

On Thanksgiving day, General Hospital aired a brand new episode … and it was chocked-full of cliffhangers that will have fans waiting on the edge of their seats till next Monday, when the next new installment of the ABC daytime drama series airs.

In story, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) who is now uber-suspicious of Kendra (Michelle Argyris), receives a visit from her as she is preparing to leave GH and go home after being poisoned. Kendra offers to bring Alexis more supplements, but Alexis tell her she will contact the distributor herself.  Kendra says the distributor only speaks Italian, and Alexis counters that she also speaks Italian.  At that point, Kendra’s plan may have gone up in smoke.  Later, Alexis has checked out of the hospital  on her own.  Neil (Joe Flanigan) is concerned for her, and bumps into Julian (Willam deVry) and it is Julian who says he saw Kendra with the supplement jar retrieving it from the garbage.  The two men look concerned.

Next, we see Kendra visiting her brother, Kiefer’s grave where she places flowers on it, and tells him she promises to make Alexis pay for killing him.  However, Alexis has followed her to the gravesite.  Once Kendra walks away, Alexis goes to the grave, lifts up the flowers and is shocked when she sees Kiefer’s name on the headstone.  Then from behind, Kendra smashes Alexis in the head with a rock.

Courtesy/ABC

Julian is ready to snuff Brad (Parry Shen) out of his and his son, Lucas’ (Ryan Carnes) life once and for all, and he cuts a wire in Brad’s car.  Problem is, everyone assumed Lucas would be working on Thanksgiving at the hospital.  So first, Brad lets Michael (Chad Duelle) take Wiley to the Corinthos family Thanksgiving,  and tells Michael he does not want to attend, because of Carly (Laura Wright) and the family’s issue with him visiting Nelle (Chloe Lanier) in prison.  Next, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) tells Lucas to go home – that she got his shift covered by Terry.  Lucas goes home to confront Brad.  He tells his husband, to please tell him what he is keeping from him.

At the Corinthos home, Mike (Max Gail) comes to Thanksgiving dinner from Turning Woods.  When he comes inside he is confused, wondering when his own parents are coming.  Carly tells him that his parents left him with them to take care of him for Thanksgiving.  Later, Mike is holding baby Donna, which scares Michael, Carly and Sonny (Maurice Benard).  When Carly is able to get the baby in to her hands, Mike loses his temper and gets upset and pushes Sonny right into the Thanksgiving food, which falls to the floor.  Sonny can’t seem to calm Mike down and tells Carly he needs to take his father back to Turning Woods where they can take care of him. Sonny is devastated.

At Anna’s (Finola Hughes), Finn (Michael Easton) comes upon the letter Hayden wrote for him, when Violet asks for her doll, which is inside her bag.  Alone, Finn opens the letter and is heartbroken, and shook, when he reads that Hayden is in serious trouble and had to leave town to protect Violet. She tells Finn she knows he will take good care of their daughter.  Finn is reduced to tears, trying to cope with what is in front of him.

Y&R’s Peter Bergman Reminds Us All Why He is One-of-a-Kind in Memorable Flashback-Driven 30th Anniversary Episode

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless featured the highly-touted and highly-anticipated 30th anniversary show for Peter Bergman.  For three decades, and with three Daytime Emmys for his work, Bergman has made Jack Abbott one of soap operas all-time classic characters.

And, if anybody needed a reminder, or a refresher course of just how good Peter Bergman has been in this role, you needed to look no further than the tremendous flashbacks the producers of the series pulled to punctuated Jack Abbott’s life story since Bergman’s arrival on the scene, replacing Terry Lester in the pivotal role.

What was great about this standalone episode, celebrating a milestone for one of their legacy cast members, was that it did not show the same ole’ same ole’ clips that often can be standard fare in soapland.  Instead, viewers were treated to some of the more heartbreaking moments for Jack, i.e. when he tells Nikki that their son who had died saved another child’s life, and that he got to hold the baby.  Then there was the gut-punch when Jack realizes Phyllis has been sleeping with none other than Nick Newman, and he feels the fool and that she played him.  There is the moment when Jack tells his dying father John, that he will look after the family now, and there is even boardroom corporate drama that back in the day was so exciting to see.  How great were Jess Walton and Bergman together back then as Jill and Jack? And then there is the rivalry of soap rivalries between Victor Newman and Jack Abbott played to the hilt by Eric Braeden and Bergman, respectively.

Watching Bergman’s work in flashbacks would be enough on its own. Now add to that the real-time mature version of Jack, who has realized his many failings and how he would do anything to be CEO of Jabot, including duping his sister, Ashley with the Blood-Abbott clause and more, and you’ve got soap gold.  You definitely needed some hankies for this episode, especially watching the reactions of Bergman acting mostly by himself when going in and out of the flashbacks.  We have often said, no male actor can cry quite like Peter Bergman, and move you to tears.  And in this episode, he did that several times over.

How fitting that Jack was sitting around with his siblings: Traci, Billy, and Ashley as well as his mother, Dina, his son, Kyle and his niece Abby, that brought the episode to its conclusion looking back at the life and times of the Abbott family through Traci’s manuscript that Jack helped write.

In the end, Jack celebrates what being an Abbott means, and remembers those who have passed, and looks forward to new members of the clan to come.
