THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Lily Sentenced To 12 Month Prison Term

If you caught Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, you know by know that Lily (Christel Khalil) was sentenced by the judge to serve a prison term for the car accident that caused Hilary’s death and that of her unborn child.

Even, after Devon (Bryton James) defended his sister to the judge in that Hilary would not want Lily to be separated from her children, and that Lily’s guilt that she will never escape her and is punishment enough, the judge ruled to reduce what could have been 20 years in prison to 12 months, but with a caveat.  Lily will start her jail time immediately; for the first 48 hours there are to be no visitors, either.

Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Lily’s world is rocked.  Fast-forward to Wednesday’s installment and Lily is alone in her jail cell, with the sounds of the inmates around her, while looking at a photo of her family which drives her to tears.

Meanwhile at home, Cane is trying to get Charlie (Noah Alexander Gerry) and Mattie (Lexie Stevenson) off to their first day of school, making pancakes, and trying to make things as much business as usual for the family, but it’s too much for any of them.  Everyone is heartsick over Lily’s jail sentence.

Devon fills Mariah (Camryn Grimes) in on the sentencing.  He says he spoke out on Lily’s behalf, but this in no way means he forgives her.  Mariah says maybe Lily will get out sooner for good behavior. Nate (Brooks Darnell) stops by to talk to Devon.  He informs Nate, he has no plans on visiting Lily in jail.

Cane breaks down thinking about Lily alone in her cell, as she tries to cope with her new found surroundings.  Can Cane get to her before the 48 hours is up to check on his wife?

Now that Christel Khaili has made it known publicly that she is going on recurring status with the Y&R we can only assume that Lily’s sentence may hold up.

The episodes featured touching performances by Daniel Goddard and Christel Khalil, who for several years have been one of Y&Rs most popular on-screen couples.

So, what did you think of the judge’s sentence on Lily? The performances by all involved? What will happen to the duo known as “Lane”? Share your thoughts via the comment section below, but first check out the heartbreaking final moments of Wednesday’s Y&R.

This show needs to be put in jail! Lilly was the best of the Winters clan and she is on recurring! Then you have Devon and Nate running around who cannot act one scene that doesnt remind me of a wooden soldier in the Nutcracker! And Cane, PLEASE!

Devon and Nate are horrible. I agree with your summation.

Christel nailed it. Her scenes yesterday were heartbreaking. There she is – the good person who did a bad thing and got caught and is going to pay. She’s scared, lonely and disbelieving. She’s suffering and knows she’ll be there a long time. Not like when Victor goes to jail – no remorse, no regrets. He only wonders how quickly he’ll wriggle out it. Christel played it for real. She was wonderful.

I agree. Miss Khalil has grown into a strong necessary legacy character on Y&R, and that makes the recurring status seem odd to me. I will miss a more constant presence. I applaud that the Genoa City justice system actually works but remain dismayed most of our characters do not pay for major crimes (Nikki’s murderous past, anything Victor, Adam, Chloe) that at times are premeditated or accidents fueled by plans. Seems Lily Winters is being made an example. Wonder who she may meet in prison and if that may launch a new trajectory for her or open a can of trouble down the line for someone.

I think the whole Ashby family should move away. Then, some homeless rich character can take their house (there does seem to be a housing shortage in GC). I have never cared for Lilly and I think the actress is just flat. She’s a terrible crier–I have heard little girls in the mall do a better job at pretending to cry.

IF, ONLY – this was happening to Devon… the worst of two evils… oy

both just so uninteresting… WOW does neil winters need a familial makeover

as I’ve always said… there has to be hundreds PLUS better actors out their just chomping at the bit.

truly one of the sorriest family of color.. LACK. Mal Young ! REALLY

Isnt Hilary supposed to be a national cekeb from her popularity..
It would ve been a nice beat to play if the media and her fans villiffied Lily and really out her over the edge!
..With hilary dead and lily in prison and Christal going off contract Mal really needs to utilize the rich history of the Winters fam. Wheres Mami?. Olivia now that Nates in town?. Leslie can come back divorced? or even a recast Sophia with Moses.?
Instead we get a new insta fam with the Rosales that no one asked for..
We wont even mention how the ptb forgot about the Chancellors. Sad really
This show needs some new blood upstairs stat..this ship is sinking

Harry

You make some really good points. And speaking of the Chancellors, what happened to the Chancellor mansion? Billy and Phyllis move into the Abbott house and everyone is complaining about how crowded it is. And it has gotten even worse since Jack moved back in. Why don’t Billy and Phyllis move into his mother’s house with only Esther rattling away in that huge mansion? Did they dismantle that set? It’s just so weird and wrong that Jack is living with these two who betrayed and hurt him in the worst possible way. And speaking of Jack, now he’s thinking Lauren’s father, Mr Fenmore, might be his father. Sigh. Just when I thought it was about to be found out that John Abbott is really his father and this whole paternity/DNA story was orchestrated by Ashely who is vying for the position of Jabot CEO.
I wish they’d stop with the “Who’s Your Daddy?” storyline–it just makes Jack look foolish and needy.

What i think is crazy that have of the people of GC should be in jail they do things knowing. Its bad but mean while she did a accident! Neil kidnapped Hillary and no jail time for him. Victor gets away with murder Nicki as well. Devon covered it up Neil’s because thats its his father but charged his sister with no remorse until he heard his niece and nephew state that je would be banned and complained about him in the court room.

Please give lily early release, don’t make us suffer through a year of this. Surely Michael the wonder atty can register an appeal and get her out.

Misti4u

Come on! She got 12 MONTHS instead of years. All these upper crust characters are SO entitled it’s very aggravating. Why not be grateful instead trying to get even more considerations??? Why not role model acceptance and maturity for your children, especially when Cane is even worse by showing them that when you are treated more than fairly – you should whine and complain and throw a tantrum.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sasha and Valentin’s Secret Out Of The Bag: So Where Is Nina’s Real Daughter?

As many had suspected, there was something up in the relationship between Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and relative newbie to Port Charles, Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson).

The young woman who was introduced on the show back in the middle of September, and “turned out” to be Nina’s (Michelle Stafford) biological daughter (the one she gave birth to years ago), is not telling the truth, nor is Valentin,

At the end of Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Sasha is visiting Valentin at Wyndemere, where he tells her he wants her to go back to where she came from, and that if she sticks around, the truth will come out.

A confident Sasha says she won’t blow this and that no one will ever find out that she is not Nina’s daughter.  Thus meaning, Valentin set this whole ruse up to wrangle Nina back into a romance and marriage with him.

But as for Sasha, she clearly is intent on not leaving town, and getting her claws into Griffin (Matt Cohen), even though he is dating her “sister” Kiki (Hayley Erin).

Even Ava (Maura West) is telling Sasha to go after her daughter’s man, because, as we know, Ava is a woman scorned in regard to Griffin. And let’s not forget that Ava and Nina are longtime nemesis, too.  Adding to the confusion and deception are those second DNA results that came back positive to prove to Nina that Sasha is her bio-daughter, but she clearly isn’t.

So now that we know Sasha is a fake, that begs the questions … Is Nina’s daughter even alive?  If she is alive, where is she, and who is she?

Share your thoughts on where, or who Nina’s real daughter is, and what you think of the collision between Valentin and Sasha, via the comment section below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Ashley Leaves For Paris As Eileen Davidson Wraps Her Run

Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless marked the final appearance of Eileen Davidson in the role of Ashley Abbott, and the two-time Daytime Emmy winner left on a high note with an emotional storyline that could just earn her yet another gold statuette next year.

As Ashley’s family drama came to its conclusion, she tells Jack (Peter Bergman), Traci (Beth Maitland), Kyle (Michael Mealor) Billy (Jason Thompson) and Abby (Melissa Ordway) that she is taking the patents and leaving Genoa City immediately.  She reveals that while she is completely disgusted with the Abbott clan, she is not leaving out of spite.

Ashley’s decided to start her own company with her own products. … and she will call it “My Beauty” – John’s nickname for her when she was growing up.  Next, she goes toe to toe with her brother Jack. He fires back that Ashley has left Jabot for company after company, time and time again.  Then, there is another flashback to an argument that ensued when they were kids over a mess that was less at the family pool.

Now in the present, defiant and standing up for herself, Ashley says to the group there is no offer from them that she would accept, because she plans to start her own empire in the same city her mother did years ago.  Then, Ashley announces she is leaving for Paris on a jet tonight.  When Jack and Traci bring up leaving Dina (Marla Adams) behind, who is losing her battle with Alzheimer’s, Ashley says she had made peace with her mother and that Dina doesn’t know who she is anymore, so it won’t make a difference to Dina.

Ashley turns to Abby and asks her to join her in Paris, but Abby refuses. They share a tearful hug.  Next, Ashley addresses Billy hoping that their relationship one day can be repaired. Then, an emotional Traci tells her sister that she will always love her unconditionally, but she thinks Ashley’s making the wrong choice.  The sisters share a hug.  When Dina joins everyone, Ashley explains to her mother that she now feels liberated.

Before she leaves, Ashley tells Jack she has nothing to say to him and walks out. Later, Ashley is at the GCAC and gets a call from Neil, and drops the bombshell that she is leaving for Paris tonight and starting her own company, and she wishes they could have seen where their relationship would have gone.

Just then, Jack shows up.  In a heartfelt conversation, he confesses to Ashley that he hates himself for starting this war years ago, and what it’s done to their family.  He confesses that part of the reason the “blood Abbott clause” was added was so he wouldn’t have to compete against his sister.  Jack finally admits that he was jealous of her and her talents!  After apologizing to Ashley, they hug.  Then, we go to a flash back to when they were younger and a young Ashley tells Jack she does not like fighting with him.

Now in the present, with a chance to reconcile with her brother, Ashley doesn’t take it. Instead, she stands up for her decision saying she needs to look out for herself now, first and exits  After all, how many times can she feel less than by her own family?

Davidson’s final moments occurred on the plane taking Ashley to Paris where she toasts her exit from Genoa City and on to her new life, while Jack is devastated looking at the empty Abbott house, with a big question mark for the future of Jabot and with a huge rift with his sister that may never be repaired.

Following the airing of the episode,  some of the cast who shared many scenes over the years with Davidson offered their sentiments on Eileen’s departure from the series, on a post on the official Y&R facebook page.

Marla Adams shared: I love Eileen so much. We’ve had so many wonderful scenes together. When I returned to the show, we did a scene in the Abbott Living Room and at the end of the scene Eileen cried. I knew then that we would make magic together. I will miss her but respect her decision and hope to see her soon.”

Beth Maitland sharedL “From the moment we met on the set these many years ago, we were sisters. Ups and downs, life events and comings and goings, we were always returning to the foundation of those days, and I will forever be blessed by the times I have shared with Eileen.”

So, what did you think about how Ashley left Genoa City?  Did she do the right thing for herself? Will you miss Eileen?

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Abbott Family Drama Leaves Ashley To Make A Game-Changing Decision

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless continued the emotional and riveting Abbott family drama that flashes back to when Ashley, Traci, and Jack were kids, and then to the present day; which illustrates how their relationship as kids forever changed their grown-up paths in business, and with one another.

Last week featured some intricate writing and directing and heart-tugging performances by Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Peter Bergman (Jack), and Beth Maitland (Traci).  As we head into Monday, it will mark the final episode of Davidson as she heads off the canvas and departs the role that she originally became soap-famous for, and has played on and off since 1982.

In story, as we flash back to the Abbott house in the 1970’s, a young Ashley tells John about her science experiment.  She expresses that she thought that if she worked hard and won a ribbon at the science fair that her mother would love her like she has always loved Jack. Unfortunately, Dina had already left them all behind.  Now in the present, Ashley sits with Dina, who is slipping further and further into dementia from her battle with Alzheimer’s for an emotional conversation.  Abby overhears their chat and is moved to tears.  Ashley tells Dina that she thanks her, and how she must have looked out for her when making the legal documents that gave her the patents to Jabot.  Dina can’t recall anything that Ashley is saying.  We go to another flashback, where John has to assure Ashley that her mom didn’t leave the family and all of them behind, because of her.  When young Ashley cries, John promises to always be there for her, but little do they know a young Jack and Traci are overhearing this.  Then, when a young Jack wants to share his feelings with John about how he has been affected by Dina leaving them, John doesn’t let him share his emotions. He instead reminds Jack that he has to be strong for his sisters.

Meanwhile at Jabot, panic is setting in between Jack, Billy, Traci, Abby and Kyle about what this all means for the company if Ashley becomes CEO and has all the patents.  Abby tells the group about how much Ashley has felt unloved over the years. Traci tells everyone that not one of them is living up to the legacy that John Abbott has set, and that not one of them should be running Jabot now.

When Ashley shows up, Jack makes her a very lucrative offer on paper, which Ashley rips up  An upset Ashley throws it back at her brother.  Abby accuses her mom of going against everything John stood for. “Jack started it!” Ashley yells.  Even though the Abbott family tries to reassure Ashley that they love and respect her, (and respect is what she wants from them, and feels she is not getting) she exits needing time to think.  Jack doesn’t know how things got this bad.  Traci explains that Jack was left to hold the family together after Dina ran out on them.  A tearful Traci talks about Jack buying Ashley a cake when she won the science fair. Jack has a flash back to when he and a young Ashley were arguing over who was John’s favorite child  However, Jack worried that John wouldn’t always be around, so he promised that he would be there to help Ashley if she ever needed it.

Later, back at the Abbott home, Traci says she knows how much attention John lavished on Ashley; while Jack had no one to comfort him. Finally, Jack admits he was very jealous of his sisters.  Next, Ashley arrives firmly telling the group that she will not to take a back seat to anyone.  Jack still holds firm about her not being CEO.   Ashley then reveals a bombshell, not only is she turning down their offer, but she is taking the patents with her and leaving the family and the company for good, and plans to leave Genoa City!  Everyone is stunned.

Kudos to magnificent performances by Eileen Davidson, Peter Bergman, and to Beth Maitland for delivering the “Power Performance of the Week” and reminding us all while she is still such a valuable asset to The Young and the Restless.

So, what have you thought about how Y&R has told the story of the Abbott children’s past and how it affect the present? What did you think about the performances?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, watch Ashley announce her big decision below.
