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

Photo Credit: JPI Srudios

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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.

THE BACHELORETTE: Katie Chooses Her Final Four

It got pretty “serious” on Monday’s key episode of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette.  For Katie had to choose the men who would move on to the all-important ‘hometowns’, where Thurston meets family members/parents of her suitors.

There was the predictable and the unpredictable within the two-hour installment.  As predicted, Greg, after finally getting another one-on-one with Katie, cemented his spot in the ‘hometowns’, but of course, you can clearly see emotion and conflict within him.  He has seemingly become more uncomfortable with the fact that Katie is dating other men, and that he could be left heartbroken in the end on top of recently losing his father.  Katie reassures him that their connection is real and attempts to tell the producers in her testimonial that she is “falling in love with Greg” but can’t say or get the order of those words right.  Freudian slip?

Brendan takes the bulls by the horn and goes to Katie’s room after once-again not receiving a one-on-one date with her.  Since he took the initiative to stop by her hotel room unannounced, she also lowers the boom on him and says she is just not there with him and she has stronger connections with the other guys, so he is sent packing.

In another one-on-one date, virgin Mike P. and Katie were put into a cringeworthy cuddling session with a “cuddling expert”, while laughing through their unease of the situation.  Mike compared Katie to his mother, which probably gave Katie some weird vibes.  Later, instead of finishing the date, she sent Mike home.  Another one bites the dust.

During the group date with Justin, Michael A., Andrew, and Blake, it was Blake who said to Katie that he was not in love with her yet.  Meanwhile, Justin aced the group art date competition.  Michael A. loved that Katie said all the right things about having his son in their lives and in the equation, (although you can see Michael struggling to be away from his little boy) and Andrew said he still had dreams to play football and reminds her of their bond with nice, over-the-top gestures.

At the group date finale, Michael A. was awarded the rose.  With two guys in for the ‘hometowns’, it was time for the last two to be picked from the three remaining contestants at the rose ceremony.  Katie kept Justin and Blake and sent Andrew home in a gut-wrenching emotional goodbye scene, ‘Bachelorette’-style.

Katie seemed uncertain and torn up by her decision to ax him, while Andrew was blindsided as was driven away in tears in the limo.  Fast-forward to the next morning, Andrew comes to visit Katie in her room! Happy and surprised to see him, Andrew says he did not want their final moments together to be the way it ended at the rose ceremony.  As they say their goodbyes, Andrew leaves Katie a card.  She opens it when he leaves.  It reads “If you change your mind, I’ll be waiting.”  Katie becomes frantic and emotional and goes running after him in the hotel.  She then offers Andrew a chance to stay in the competition, and he turns her down, for Andrew, did not want to put himself at another rose ceremony and go through that again, if she ultimately eliminated him from the competition.  They hug and have one final kiss, and Andrew makes his final exit.

So, did Katie choose the right final four for her? What are your thoughts on Greg, Justin. Michael A. and Blake? Who will get the final rose? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill Learns the Truth About Justin’s Deception

On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, longtime soap vet, Don Diamont (Bill) turned in one of his best performances as Dollar Bill Spencer finds out the depth of Justin’s betrayal, and Aaron D. Spears (Justin) also delivered in these highly-charged moments.

In key scenes, after being released from prison and back at his office at Spencer Publications – while reuniting with his son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and his beloved Katie (Heather Tom) – Bill learns from Thomas of Justin’s (Aaron D. Spears) machinations.  It was those machinations that kept Liam (Scott Clifton) and Bill in the slammer, and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) locked in a cage.

Until Justin had a last minute change of heart and did not delete all the messages and recordings from Thomas’ phone from Vinny that was the evidence to clear both Liam and Bill; things would have gone even more horribly awry.

Once Bill is informed of just what Justin did, he confronts him and clears out of his office to leave the two longtime friends, and business associates alone for a massive showdown.  In the scenes, Justin tries to make Bill understand he wanted to grab the power that Bill has always had.

However, in the end, Bill tells Justin he is ‘dead’ to him and their longtime relationship appears to be fractured forever.  But will Bill somehow, someway, come to understand Justin’s motives as something he might have done once in a his life?  Time will tell.

Watch the performances featuring Don and Aaron below.

UPDATED as of 7/18, Don and Aaron took home the Power Performance of the Week honors for their work here.

Now let us know, what did you think about the confrontation/showdown between Bill and Justin in the comment section and what will be the fallout?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
