THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Is Victor Driving Phyllis Mad And Back Into A Coma?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) is getting down and dirty once again, but this time has he gone too far? In the latest CBS Daytime promo for Y&R, the voice-over announce says of ole Vic: “He’s ruthless and merciless.”

Next, Victor boasts, “I don’t lose to anyone!”   Following that, Jill (Jess Walton) says to Victor: “I will fight you on this one,” and Victor retorts back, “You will go down in grand fashion.”

But then in a shocker,  you see an intense and upset Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) talking to Victor.  He says to her, “Maybe, it’s a good idea for you to slip back into a coma!”  Next thing you know …  he has pulled out a syringe and injects Phyllis!  Is Victor the one behind driving Phyllis mad?  Or, was this just a dream of Phyllis’?

Over the course of the last few weeks, doubt was being laid that it was Kelly (Cady McClain) who was setting up Phyllis, but then on Friday, it looked like Phyllis came to the conclusion with Jack (Peter Bergman) that she is having these weird emotional outbursts! Is Victor behind it all?

Watch the promo for next week’s Y&R featuring the moustache! Then weigh-in, what do you think is going on with Phyllis? Are you intrigued by the storyline? Comment below!

LOL..
Victor is not doing that to Phyllis..
It is hook and grab teas .. it is a dream thing going on to get people whose brains do not work properly to think that will happen LOL .. duh

in other words;
you are being tolled / a bait and switch … LOL 🙂

then again.. perhaps Pratt is giving us some blood and gore writing, that would be a treat..
Jack is being made a fool of (the dimwit) I can get into that..
He has become dumber than dirt ..

The constant bickering between Phyllis and Kelly is becoming irritating..

Ok–I hope Victor is stabbing a big nasty needle into Phyllis wrapped up hand and hopefully it will be a drug to silence her LOL

Pratt just might be juicing Y&R up and it’s going dark..
I think Pratt will blow up the Sanford and Son set, the Crimson Lights junked up eye sore and Dylan will get himself a very modern ‘money maker’ replacement..
I want Joe and Avery to get on, we all need that moment..

Looking forward to seeing Victor turn into the prince of darkness, again..

You are determined to turn Y&R into GH. It’s not going to happen (I hope).

hey Mike..
In a 100 years Y&R could never as anything as great as GH.. the Y&R actors could never pull it off..
but-
Pratt was a writer for GH and he has the knack for darkness so Pratt might be able to liven up Y&R to keep me from FF or falling asleep..

Camp Camp and more CAMP…UGGHHH…Here we go….

General Hospital can never be Y&R. GH is incredibly overrated.

I stopped watching y&r when things began to get drug past what made sense. I’ve managed to un-addict myself. TYJ!

P.S.
Does it make sense that Devon’s character would cheat his dad with his wife? C’mon, couldn’t he be more loyal and where’re his morals, between the sheets? So, Hillary’s that kinda good, huh? And to give Colin all of his money? Really? !

Again, Su? LOL. Victor never changed his spots. He (and his evil) is always lurking in the shadows, awaiting the particular victim to pounce on next.
I am up to my hair follicles with Phyl and Kel myself. I like Gina much more than Cady, but, honestly? I don’t care who gets pulverized. Since Michelle left, the only true Phyllis, in my eyes, I have lost most of the pull to watch. Coupled with the loss of Billy Miller…well, what can I say.
I still love Y&R and I will always watch….it’s home; it’s familiar.
I think I need more time to get used to all the changes; the recycled Wah, Wah, Nikki, the drunkard storyline; and, the ridiculous childish behavior of most.
The Michael Baldwin storyline is poignant and true to life. THAT is what is keeping me holding on…..only, please, TPTB, do not kill him off !!!!

That’s why Pratt said people will say…I can’t believe they’re doing this…High camp and melodrama to beat the band is on the way…

GH is pure cartoon camp now–I have grown to accept it and do not have the energy to scream about it anymore.
That said, Kelly has this spaced out freaky smile on her face whenever someone is not looking. If she is doing to to Phyllis, I can only imagine that the mustached puppet master is pulling the strings. This is not the first time he has sicked a bat shit crazy dame on another bat shit crazy dame.

Why would anybody want “Young and the Restless” to be as horrific as “General Hospital” was circa 2004? Nobody in their right might would wish for that.

OMG I HATE VICTOR! PLEASE JILL GET THE COMPANY FROM VICTOR! Victor did such horrific things to everyone and uses the excuse its for family. He is so crazy

I don’t like the Phyllis/Kelly, who is the bigger wacko? storyline.
Don’t really think Victor has a thing to do with it, either.
And don’t like the way Jill feels entitled to Katherine’s company.
Katherine left it to Victor in her will!
And apparently owning Fenmore is not enough for Jill.
She is a greedy thing.

Can you blame her?

She’s not getting any from her wifey husband.

Yeah, it has been awhile, huh?
Poor Jill.

Victor drives everyone mad…lol

Yep, Chuckie Pratt’s fingerprints are all over this silliness. Looks like Y&R is heading to jump the shark territory just in time for February sweeps. Can somebody kill Dullan already? Who gives a crap about a coffee shop? I’d rather go to Starbucks than that dump.

LOL
that coffee shop is a junk pile lol looks like a bad garage sale..
it always reminds me Sanford and Son’s junky place, junk all over..

The CD’s on the jukebox have never changed. The over sized coffee cups on the counter that have danishs that expired when Nick ran the joint. Blow it up Joe!

Have to add this ridiculous statement: geez, is there a resident arsonist who could bring the set to ashes?

Oh, but, Jill…don’t you get it? That coffee shop means the world to Dullard, the power ranger. …so many memories.

Chuck Pratt has arrived. The promo looks really juicy. I wonder if Victor is behind what is happening to Phyllis and Kelly.

wish I could see the video…not available to view in Canada 🙁 Hopefully this is just a dream Phyllis is having. I know Victor is a bada$$, but he wouldn’t resort to injecting people. And yes, I agree that Jill is too greedy for her own good.

So glad I don’t waste my time with this show any longer!

he looks like a haggard crusty old bag

interesting ? pique this…. his guns still blaze

you know… for Y&R to maintain it’s core audience… this is the one time… it’s time to let go and leave him

he is not John Aniston’ Victor Kiriakis…. now that’s a class act

Victor is so off base and lacks

oye! to be pulling his tired act out of the hat… and in to the throes

bye bye

Victor is daytime royalty! Everyone knows him even if they dont watch the show. A lot of athletes watch this show and they love Victor. I do to. He is over the top but his lines are priceless!

victor newman is y n r . period. last weeks victor vs paul scene at the ranch proved no one messes with the moustache!!

I agree, Timm. Victor and the actor who plays him, make me laugh but I laugh with an involuntary shudder.
One time I wise cracked Eric Braeden on Twitter. He not only did not get mad, he favored my Tweet and Followed me. It scared me so much I deactivated my Twitter account.

Actually, Timmm, if truth be told? Victor Kiriakis’s one-liners slay me !!

I am glad that victor is going to put red back in a coma , I love the show I have been watching it ever since it came on I have watch the very first one and still watching it, I hope jack gets back with Kelly, I don’t want billy with victory I want her with ben I… your number one fan I love the show very much the young and restless is the only soap opra I watch I cant stand the rest of them, I hope they put kevin with Sharon daughter, I hope Sharon and nick get back together, thanks for a great show keep up the good work, I don’t like jo the way he is doing Dylan leave him alone and let him keep the coffee house and be happy with is girlfriend……… thanks again your number one friend…………

i am the young and restless number one fan love the show very much, i want kevin and Sharon daughter together please don’t take kevins brother off i like him and his wife i love all of you

While I have no earthly idea what Victor will do, this longtime GH viewer is humbly requesting that he place a visit to Port Charles to render the current “Phyllina (aka, Nina) Clay”…formerly known as “Phyllis Summers Newman”…back into her coma, and whilst he is at it, return this Y&R remnant to Genoa City along with him. Although it appears she’s not at all missed back there, she—and especially her particularly overwrought, melodramatic form of histrionics—are really most unwelcome in and ill-suited to her current city of residence. Please take her…she’s all yours!!!!

I LOVE this idea. It is brilliant and oh so user friendly.

I continue to go back and ask myself, “What would Bill Bell do? What would Bill Bell do when the show is in such dire straits?” Well, look at the history of the show– when the mass exodus of actors began when the show was less than 10 years old, Bill cleared the landscape by phasing out the Brookes and Foster families while simultaneously introducing us to the Williams and Newman families. That’s the formula that ALWAYS WORKED on this show: phase in a story while a current one is going strong, bring this one to a close while the other story gets stronger, then repeat the process! As much as I loved growing up with the Abbotts and Newmans, the Williamses and Winters– it is time for a new family to relocate to Genoa City! Or, maybe locate back: now there’s an idea I have sung before– bring back one or two of the Brookes sisters, or that Tricia (Ryan’s former fling.) Better yet, as I suggested before: give to Jill what she gave to Kay Chancellor– what goes around, comes around… maybe even do the same to Victor, have the carpet pulled out from under his feet by some young entrepreneur; time to dethrone the king of manipulation. And, for what it is worth, Victor would never inject something into someone, unless he is now the basket case. If anyone is messing with Phyllis, it ought to be the doctor who messed with her to begin with– their are whacko physician’s out there; the Chicago Tribune has run a few articles in the past two years about these types. Honestly, someone mentioned it last week on another post– make this a case of mental illness and handle the storyline accurately and with education for the public (the viewers.) Oh, how I would love to sit for a few hours with the writing team!

Sorry for the glaring grammatical errors above! “There are whacko physicians out there.”

Those are not grammatical errors, Ron. They are typos. There’s a big difference. It happens to all of us and there is no delete button. ……nothing wrong with your grammar. We have something in common….we are both educators.
You cannot imagine how exhilarating it is to see good grammar in print. Our “English”, as we know it, is going down the tubes. Blame it on technology ? Then, again…..”gotta” go with the flow. It’s called progress. It kills me to even say it, but, it is what it is.

I am out of your league, and Harry’s, as far as all the past storylines on Y&R. That is, Jill having an affair with Jack while she was married to John. I know about it since my grandmother has been an avid viewer since 1972. So, history is repeating itself with Devon(sounds like a couch) and Hillary. I do not even watch when these two come on. They gross me out…..there’s a perfectly well-phrased idiom for you !!……LOL.

CeeCee

Nice to meet. Nicer to know it’s acceptable to use fragments. And other English teacher no-no’s! And, glad to know there’s another educator out there. The Chicago Tribune’s feature headline this morning covers the woes and pangs of Common Core… and I got to thinking, why doesn’t Y an R do a storyline on education: imagine the issues they could cover, such as bullying, excessive testing, middle school sexting, parent frustration with Common Core, etc etc… lots of doors to open.

When you next chat with your grandmother, tell her hello from someone who got brief creative writing training from the head writer of Y and R, Bill Bell himself!

And, I agree– the Devon/Hillary storyline is just awful… if the writers had any idea how poorly conceived and ill-advised it was, they’d fix it in a day….ughh.

Hello, Ron.
It is nice to have made your acquaintance, also. Fragmented sentences are ok in dialogue….as on this site. But, in essay form, it definitely is a no-no, unless put in quotation marks, as you well know, I’m sure…LOL.
There are some educators who need some private lessons in grammar themselves. It is unfortunate how some do not know the difference between “there”, “their”, “they’re”, “your”, “you’re”, and so many, many more….too many to mention.
My maternal grandmother is from Scotland. Her speech is, at times, hard to grasp for those who are not used to her ‘tight’ Scottish brogue, but her grammar is impeccable. She is a very wise lady, who actually cracks me up when she goes into heated tirades over Devon, Hillary, Victor etc.
We all admired Bill Bell and the masterpiece he created in Y&R (as it was). You are very lucky to have met and to have been under the writing tutorship of such a savant as he……later.

Ron, I wish you had a few hours with Y&R’s writing team as well for I really like your ideas.
I have been proposing that they bring in a new matriarch who is trying to lay claim to the Chancellor estate. She could be Katherine’s long lost sister or better yet, it could be Phillip Chancellor’s long lost sister or even a wife he forgot to divorce before he married Kay. Then cast Erika Slezak in this role! She would be perfect!
What do you think of the Leslie/Duvane and Blind Neil love triangle? I hate it. I cannot stand the sight (no pun intended) of Leslie and Duvane anymore as I find them both so repulsive and vile that I need a shower just from watching a scene involving those two cretins hitting the sheets. It’s so bad that I am actually rooting for Colin to get the best of them with his blackmailing scheme. I would like both Duvane and Leslie to be written off the show after their affair hits the fan because I do not see how either character can be redeemed.
Couldn’t Katherine have donated her money to the local Humane Society instead of that lazy good for nothing bum? How I detest Duvane with the heat of thousand suns.

wow!!!
i cant believe im even going to correct you , buts its 1. devon!, 2. hilary, not leslie whos a lawyer and somewhat disapeared from the landscape along with her bro tyler, who i both miss very much and hope pratt can find a way to bring them back on the canvass! hilary is the characters name who is involved with devon

It’s to bad C. Pratt wasn’t writing back when Kay Chancellor’s will was read. She loved Nikki and even Jill. It should have been divided between the two of them and they would have to run it together. I think that would have been better than Victor involved again.

Harry,

You are too kind. Your posts are often dead-on with my views and you have a great use of metaphor! I– an English teacher– applaud your creativity. So, a new matriarch is so necessary. I think you mentioned Nina once before? I would love to see that old, feisty Nina, the one who belted out to both Kay and Jill, “this fat lady is gonna sing” when she was pregnant with Philip’s child.

And, for something new: I would love to see a Genoa City benefits program done for some really worthy cause, and have the “Mayor” or whomever, bring in Genoa City’s famous celebrities for the event– singing by Danny Romalotti and Gina Romalotti, Tracey Abbott, Leslie Brookes, (yikes) Lauren Fenmore, even the past successful authors for anniversary issues of their books, Laurie Brookes and Leanna Love. Die hard fans would love to see the past relived!

Wouldn’t you like to know if the current show writers read our posts? Or even Bill Bell’s children?

Finally, I agree with the Winters blind love triangle (talk about blind love– I imagine the writers never thought of that literary concept!); it was done before– Jack and Jill behind John Abbott’s back (who, getting those puzzle pieces in the mail that revealed Jill cheating with some man) and then John ends up with the heart attack… that was a great storyline, and TRUE to character and plot.

Ron

Who is Leslie? Do you mean Devon and Hillary? I really like the two of them. I do hope they get caught although I hate going through Neil’s drinking again not to mention Lily’s temper tantrums. Neil should have known better. She was way to young for him. I wish more air time was given to Courtney & Noah and Kevin & Mariah. Less time on Lily & Cane bed hopping & Summer. If they got rid of those 3 there would be a bunch of money saved.

Nikki

I believe Harry is referring to Hilary. The LESLIE I reference is original heroine Bill Bell created for Y and R: Leslie Brookes, a concert pianist who has a nervous breakdown as a result of her talented but manipulative sister, Lorie, who writes a book about Leslie’s past… and that’s just the beginning!

Thank you for your kind response, Ron. I wish they’d hire you as a story consultant.
Yes, I meant Hilary, not Leslie. And I usually write DuYawn instead of Devon, so I muddled up his name.
Those two repulse me so much I don’t even want to get their names right. I detest that story line so much!

Totally agree re:Hillary and Devon.

Harry, I knew you were talking about Hillary all along. And, I am sure so did everyone else. Some just like to make a stink about it….no big deal.
Anyway, I would love to see Erika back on ANYTHING. I miss her persona. I wish she would come join Y&R. She was born in Hollywood, so, she will feel right at home, albeit she has been living in NYC for decades. Later.

Well I am hoping it is a dream because I don’t want Victor to be part of everything that happens in GC– I like this Kelly/ Phyllis story, I hate two mature women fighting over a man, but obviously one of them has gone off her “rocker” and I honestly don’t which it is. It has been a long time since I couldn’t guess what the writers were doing. Just when I am convinced it is Kelly it looks like it is Phyllis, and just when I think it is Phyllis it looks like it might be Kelly. I’m just as confused as Jack, and I like being in the dark-. Because for me being able to predict everything in advance devalues the fun of watching, so anything they write that leaves me puzzle in a good way, is okay by me. Just don’t throw the mustache into the mix.

Oh these are excellent points, Mary. I completely agree with you

Hi Mary– nice thoughts here. And, if the writers were true to the Bell/Alden philosophy, the scene would begin with what appears to be reality, then fade out and show the viewers it was just a character’s dream. Bell/Alden used this technically occasionally, so it was always very effective. Viewers rarely suspected the “daydreaming” effect– sort of like real life, right? I’ll say it again, let’s see these current writers’ resumes!

I don’t believe Victor would stabbed Summer’s mother with a needle or do I believe that it was said Victor is the one who hit Delia and Framed Adam.Victor would not hit a child and leave her there. I had heard also that he was using Nikki’s SUV that night and after it comes out Victor hit Delia, Nikki takes the fall for it. 2 different stories,first frames Adam then lets Nikki take the fall. Doesn’t sound right. I still believe Kelly drove up that night after Adam had left and she hit delia,,At least I hope so. I can’t wait til she is gone her ben and Joe.stop messing with our Favorite couples. Adam and Chelsea Billy and Victoria Jack and Phyllis and Avery and Dylan, They Make the show.

HUH? You sound like Victoria who proclaims her father would NEVER have hired two thugs to beat up Dylan. Of course he is capable of such a thing even though he’s probably not guilty of it this time.
As far as Victor not being capable of injecting Phyllis with a needle filled with mind altering madness or better yet, putting Krazy Kelly up to the task of poisening herself in order to frame Phyllis? He is capable of either crime.
Need I remind some of you of the time he had Paul’s crazy sister Patti released from the mental asylum so she could reek havoc with Jack’s life? His actions led to the death of Traci’s only daughter, Colleen. Yes, Victor is famous for playing puppet master to women with mental issues.

Again he did not hit Delia.Victor may be many things but he is not a child killer.As far as injecting Phyllis with a needle,I still say its her dreaming.He has no motive,no reason to do that to Phyllis.Yes I do know what Victor is capable of. I actually cannot stand his smug looks and always coming out on top. I really wish Y&R would retire Victor so Adam being more like Victor then Nicholas will be the next Ruthless Newman, Adam and Chelsea full steam ahead is all I can about. Second is Jack and Phyllis and Victoria and Billy.

Goodbye Young & Restless that we all knew and loved. Here comes Chuck Pratt to turn it into some failed vision of his. Does he realize what show he’s lucky enough to be writing for??? And he’s going to screw this all up. Bad for us.

As long as they get rid of these new comers, Skanky Kelly ,Ben joe Sage, I’ll be happy with Chuck Pratt. just keep our regular couples together and all is good.

They can get rid of new-face Adam too. Can’t stand how stupid this show has become. A man’s face is burned off and replaced by a miraculous new one. Oh brother.

Bringing back the character of Adam and Phyllis is what is Saving Y&R. They took alot of flack and lost ratings when they were going to kill off Adam. People’s face get burned or disfigured all the time and have plastic surgery. Why is that so hard for you to comprehend? Y&R also took a year in searching for the right guy to play Adam,and I think Justin Hartley IS AWESOME.

Joan. You go, girl! I agree. Justin Hartley has superseded all my expectations. With time, he will own the role of Adam, more so than Muhney.
Not only has reconstructive-plastic surgery become a life-saving Godsend for so many burn-victims, but this is Y&R. Where is it written that everything we are fed makes sense or is real?
Look at the Ian Ward-Nikki-Paul-Dylan-Sharon-Mariah connection? I still ask myself, “Really?”. What a HUGE coincidence !!
It’s a soap…it’s entertainment. I’m just happy Y&R is still running.
I complain about its storylines, its characters, the silliness and the incredible goings-on. But, hey, I repeat, it’s a soap…it’s expected.

Victor did not stab Red. Its a dream. He wouldnt do that. I dont think he is really even focused on her right now. He has money issues and is focusing on Chancelor. We all knew Red was going to have an adverse reaction to the drug used to wake her up. Jack has his hands full without Victor even being involved. As for Charles Pratt, give the guy a break! Let him be on the job for a year. Maybe he will do more good than bad. 2014 was not a good year. Maybe he can brighten 2015. Maybe Charles can shake up some stories, the cast, and cause something positive for us viewers. Lets not judge him on his past.

Pratt has no fear to shake things up..
He will kill off and blow up, and Y&R needs a fire under is lame &^%^.. 🙂

Good point, Timmm. Didn’t think of that. This could just all be playing out in Phyllis’s head…???

I have no idea what all the haters are talking about. C.Pratt is doing a great job. If he wasn’t you wouldn’t be on here to begin with. I would love to see more of Lauren/Michael played out the way they did Lilly losing her hair. Love the story of Phyllis/Jack/Kelly although I think Kelly is behind the whole thing making Phyllis believe she’s crazy, I also love the way they gave Sharon some guts instead of the Newman rug she was playing I think she’s going to shock the hell out of Nick & the Newman’s. I wish we had more Abbott time (Jack,Tracy,Ashley). I would love to see more of Mariah & Kevin. I think Abby would be great with the cop. And I want to see a story with Noah & Courtney. I think the whole show is great. The only bathroom, cut veggies for dinner, skip is Summer. I just can’t stand her & she was such a poor choice for Phyllis/Nick’s daughter.

ME Too. Loving the stories. I don’t see all the hype about JFP either. so many blame her for the stories and she is not even a writer.

I don’t see anything wrong with her either. She has a job to do & I think she’s doing it well. I also love the way they do the set with showing the outside of the buildings/houses. I like to guess who’s place their at. I always thought Victor’s was my favorite but I think I like Jack’s better.

Can do without Abby and Summer. It’s not so much the actresses, it’s the roles they play. But I guess every soap has to have some of each to irritate us. And then there’s Hillary and Devon…and this too shall pass, I hope.

I kinda like Abby. Your right they need a story for her that’s why I would love to see her dating the cop. Noah & Courtney need a story as well. My favorite is Mariah & Kevin. I think Hillary & Devon will be caught soon. Paul & Christine having a baby at his age??? He’s old enough to be a grandpa & Summer I can’t stand. I will always say she was a bad pick for Nick & Victoria’s daughter but without her scene’s I would have no bathroom break’s or peeling potatoes for dinner break so it is what it is. I t got to be number 1 for a reason and it’s staying at number 1 because of the great writing.

Sorry Rose I mean Nick & Phyllis’s daughter.

Now, there’s a couple I cannot abide, Rose. I hate cheaters….of any kind. But, these two? Their story or lovemaking isn’t even titillating….she’s overly -used in her display of femme fatale, which she is not. And, Devon ( I still can’t get my head wrapped around the fact that this cry-baby is a billionaire), is constantly after the women in his “father’s” life, the man who literally pulled him out of the gutter.
Neil? I am so done with these mature men gone back to High School. Perhaps if a woman, en par with Neil , age -wise, would be introduced, he would finally give up this idea of chasing much younger women and having having babies.
……which reminds me…..Paul and Christine? Oh, gimme a break !!

This “new” cop….Y&R always only has one, LOL…..is a far cry from the previous one. He ad style and humor. This guy is just a dud.
Ordway is all wrong as Abby. She is gangly without charisma. Perhaps if her wardrobe and hair style were brought up to snuff, it would make a world of difference. She is young….why does she sport that hair? And, her clothes? Give her something more youthful.
Summer is ok. I am able to tolerate her. don’t get why viewers don’t like her. She looks like Miranda Lambert, without the talent….LOL. Now, if we could only get rid of her on-screen husband, all would be well with the world. Why is he on this show, again? Forgot his purpose.

Lo and behold, Rose !! Today, Abby actually looked like she came out of a fashion magazine. She looked beautiful…her hair; her clothes…WOW. She has gorgeous hair, but when she has that Donna Reed concoction or up-do….ugh…. You go, girl ! Glad you heard me…kidding…LOL.

Right on the money Nikki. Eileen did such an amazing job over on DAYS, I hope Charles writes her a real juicy story! I love the actress who plays Abby. She is a wise cracking rich bitch who needs a good spanking and detective Harding is a great choice to do it. I also hope him and Kevin become buddies. I like their back and forth dialogue. And yes, Summer used to be my favorite season but now I despise it! She brings EVERYONE down!

Glad I’m not the only one who appreciates Melissa Ordway as Abby. I think she’s perfect in the role.

I Love Abby. everyone says she’s a spoiled whiney brat. I don’t see that, anytime she was dating a guy they didn’t want her using her money,like with Tyler. if she was so spoiled she would of said she will use her money for however she chooses. as far as being blunt with Ben mariah Kelly. she’s just looking out for her family.

Well, she is pretty, she can act, and she is believable as Ashley’s daughter.

I think she is perfect in the role, too.

I’m really enjoying Y&R right now. Improved casting & storylines IMO. Hope Pratt doesn’t screw it up.

I know I’m beating a dead horse but I can’t stand Dylan. He has two settings; dull as dirt or rage-filled ass. Both options are a turn-off. Please limit his screen time. I thought SBu left GH so he could work less. He seems to be on non-stop. I know he has fans, but less is more in this case. JMO.

On a positive note, I do love the additions of JH, GT & CG.

NO WAY !!!!!!!!! Dylan (Steve Burton ) is Awesome. 4 best couples that make Y&R is Number 1 Adam and Chelsea, Jack and Phyllis, Billy and Victoria and Dylan and Avery.

I’ll respectfully disagree on the Dylan/Avery pairing, but I’m glad you’re enjoying the show.

First Why does everyone feel So bad for Sharon. If you don’t take your medicine then everything done after that is your fault. Give Phyllis a break. Kelly is a little crazy and should not be allowed to win( you already have crazy Sharon for that). One more thing, How come nobody notices that Nikki is constantly drunk?

Sharon has a mental illness that needs drugs on a daily basis. She has in the past forgotten to take her med’s and then her mind reacts. I don’t have a mental illness but I can tell you I forget to take my one a day vities. Sharon use to be a strong person but the old writers have written her this weak little person since she lost Cassie but now I see a change and a glimmer of Sharon that’s going to kick Nick’s ass.Can’t wait till she find’s out Sage is married. Nick is a womanizer who had a couple of affair’s with Grace while she was Sharon’s best friend not to mention when Cassie died his was of dealing with it was to walk out on his family and have an affair with Phyllis. If you look at the Newman family one by one they really are a bunch of misfits yet they treat Sharon like dirt. I want her to kick Nick so hard he doesn’t know what hit him.

About Nikki…haven’t you noticed her taking breath pills? Seems to fool everybody. On a serious note, I don’t get it either.

That is the crux of the matter, Pat. Mental illness is just that….the psyche is not in accordance with the brain, which tells the mentally ill person she does not need medication. This was handled all wrong from the beginning. Sharon should not have been left to her own devices. Where is her mother? Adam was the only one who actually gave a hoot.
It’s a damned if you do or damned if you don’t kind of situation. Sharon thought she could handle it all….had she been mentally stable, she probably could have….but……
One cannot blame a person for having mental issues, no more than one can blame someone for getting, God forbid, cancer. It is a disease !!

Agree with you Pat. Sharon knows she NEEDS to stay on her meds,so several times she chose to stop taking them,one reason she didn’t like how they made her feel,another,she didn’t think they were working.Well the dumb moron should of discuss it with her doctor. so anything that ever happened is all her fault. Yes give Phyllis a break, So tired of Kelly causing trouble with her constant lying about the wig,about the poison. I will be glad when the truth comes out about her driving up after adam drove off, and she was the one who hit Delia. Can’t wait til her and Ben are both gone and leave our couples alone.

Sorry but Y&r needs to do a who killed Victor story ASAP!!

Damn it, Ashley! Why didn’t you just grab the vial off the desk?!

I agree. Victor has sunk to a new low.

Off with the bloke’s head, I say !!!!…..to the gallows..

I kinda wish that the writers, and producers would secretly come to this web site and see what the fans are writing because you all have some of the best insights and plot ideas ever! This place is a gold mine of information!!

I was thinking that the “framing of Phyllis” is neither Kelly or Victor but Maureen, she left town quick and Ms. Baxter was a gem. Kelly recently mentioned her to her brother, that she wanted to confess to killing the father…it was like a mention out of nowhere. I think Maureen is trying to do something “nice” for Kelly after all the sorrow she’s caused, and is “gaslighting” Phyllis, framing her, so Kelly will have “her man.”

nikki needs to quit drinking, that’s just stupid and old. Nick and Sharon should be back, phillis and jack need to start a new chapter together. Maybe a business together, Neil should be a Pi . Ashley and joe would make a good couple, Danny romalotti, should come back and meet Kelly. Billy should be a rock star at the Genoa city loung. Adam and Chelsea gotta get back together before billy has another kid on the show, lol not enough relatives to date! Need new neighbours lol on y&r , sage’s new love should be Louis an actor from passions and days . Need more people and more love stories like 50 shades of grey. Do not though adopt story lines like days , I do not like the same sex thing! I’m catholic love and passion as nature promotes. Love victor and Nikki they are the best and need to rekindle the passion again!

Johnny Wactor’s Co-Worker, Anita Joy, Speaks Out For First Time Since His Fatal Shooting and Saving Her Life

Those who knew Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin, GH) were well aware of what an upstanding man he was. As tributes poured in when news that the General Hospital alum was shot and killed by one of three car thieves, they all spoke to his qualities as a human being.

Over the first 24 hours since his passing, the public learned Wactor lost his life putting himself in front of a female co-worker when confronted by his assailants, following their shift at a downtown LA bar. The thieves were attempting to steal his catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Now. Wactor’s former co-work, Anita Joy, has spoken out for the first time via her Instagram account of what happened on that fateful morning and her remembrances accompanied by photos and videos with Johnny.  As many now know, Johnny died a hero.

Anita began, “I’ve needed to take some time to collect myself and my thoughts. I was with Johnny in his last moments and I’m here to be his voice after such unimaginable events. His story is in this post as it happened, please swipe through the top photos and read it. Early Saturday morning (May 25) after our bartending shift Friday night at Level 8 in DTLA.”

“He was killed senselessly by a coward who reacted without care of the gorgeous life he was taking,” Joy shared.  So, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m all of the feelings and once … but above all, I am here for Johnny’s justice. My friend of 8 years went from laughing together, working side by side, leaving our bartending shift and walking to our cars, to him dying in my arms in the street of DTLA in the dark hours of 3am.”

She went on to say, “Everything happened in an instant. I’ve come to describe it as a glass of water that gets tipped over and you’re scrambling to grab it and save it from spilling out completely but it just runs through your fingertips and is gone.” Joy said that she and Wactor, “cautiously approached the men questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed.”

“We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace, Joy recounted. “Johnny was between me and the man who shot him – as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms as I grabbed for him I shouted, ‘Hunny, you OK?’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ Joy went on to say that she and Johnny “toppled onto the street” where she was trying to hold his body up as she was screaming for help and screaming at Johnny to “stay with me.”

Next, Joy details that a security guard named Bryan ran into the street and phoned 911. Anita wrote, “I’m so thankful for Bryan showing up, trying with all his might to save Johnny. My only peace is that I was him and this didn’t happen to him alone. My other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice.”

Speaking on Wactor’s character, Joy added, “Johnny had this incredible ability that was truly just his genuine nature – to make anyone and everyone feel so special in his eyes. No matter how well you knew him, he treated everyone like he truly cared about you. He lit up any room – you couldn’t not smile around him. His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him. He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you.”

“He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values, he never put people down, even when joking, he never made you feel unsure of yourself – he knew how to be hilarious in such a positive way and it just made him that much more lovable. It just filled your heart to be around him,” she recalled.  Johnny made you love him instantly,” Joy added. “Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have been a part of his world and him, mine. My heart is shattered with his loss but I believe l have gained the best guardian Angel out there.  I love you Johnny Wacky.”

Anita then addressed the crime that took Johnny’s life and how Level 8 did not provide parking for its late night shift workers.  Joy explained, “These criminals need to be caught – Level 8 needs to provide parking for their late hour staff as they originally promised- This cannot be something that isn’t responded to with action, it needs to be addressed in a manner to prevent anything like this ever happening again to the best of their ability – Level 8 needs to contribute to Johnny’s family to honor and respect him for all the hard work and effort he did for them.”

Speaking on GoFundMe page that has been set for Wactor, Anita spoke about Johnny’s family, expressing, “They are on the other side of the country and it’s going to be a lot on them emotionally and financially to get Johnny home to them.”

Tonya Lee Williams Says She Won’t Ever Be Coming Back to The Young and the Restless

It’s a different time in her life and she is in a different place, but Tonya Lee Williams (ex-Olivia Barber) addressed being asked back to reprise her signature soap opera role on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.

Tonya told Soaps In Depth the last time the soap reached out to her to reprise Olivia was for its 50th anniversary, “It it would have been lovely to do but I could not imagine doing the role. It takes a lot for me as an actor. You don’t just turn up and start reading a script. I don’t know how to explain it … I trained as an actor. I go through a lot of process into who that character is. And that character was someone from 20 years ago.”

Williams’ Y&R run Williams began back in 1990 and went through 2005. She later returned in 2007 making some appearances in the several years that followed. However, the last time anyone had an Olivia sighting was back in February of 2012 for Cane and Lily’s wedding.

She qualified that she left the show on “great terms,” adding, “I absolutely love the show. It has nothing to do with the show. But I try to explain it like this: Have you ever dated someone for a long time and you don’t want to date them anymore? And you have broken up with them and like, 10, 15 years have passed and people are saying, ‘Would you go back with that guy?’ I’m like, ‘No.’ Because you’re a different person now.”

Currently, Williams is the executive and artistic director for the Reelworld Film Festival. An organization she founded in 2001. Held in Toronto, the film festival features talent from ethnically diverse communities.

So, would you have liked to have seen the character of Olivia show back on Y&R? Perhaps, helping a patient in need since she is a doctor or speaking with/being involved with the Winters family in some capacity? Comment below.
