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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

THE BACHELOR: Matt Picks His Final Four for ‘Hometowns’ Which Includes Now Controversial Contestant Rachael Kirkconnell

Monday night’s airing of ABC’s The Bachelor was its first since last week’s controversial behind-the-scenes shake-up and attention-grabbing headlines.

Since the season of the reality-dating competition had been previously filmed, it did not change any of the proceedings of what viewers actually saw on-air.

And it was a pivotal episode, where ‘Bachelor’ Matt James had to whittle down the contestants to his final four in preparation to meet their families in the ‘hometowns’ next week.  So, just who did Matt choose to still be the running for the final rose?

 

Here’s what went down: first was the business of Heather Martin, bestie of ex-‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown, and a previous contestant from Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor, crashing the series to meet Matt.  When she finally makes her destination, the other women’s claws come out (and we though we got rid of the ‘mean girls” last week!).  After Heather busts up a conversation between Matt and Pieper, she tell him she wants to get to know him.  Matt at first appears conflicted whether to throw her into the jungle of the contestants, but ultimately sends her back home as she drives out in her own car, in tears, of course, over not getting a chance at love with Matt.  When Matt tells the other women that he sent Heather home, they were not only relieved, but professed how much it turned them on.

In the rose ceremony that followed, Matt also sent home Serena C. and Chelsea.  Leaving the remaining women up in arms on who would get the two one-on-one dates, and who would be put in the group date.  Abigail, who never got a one-on-one and who received the first impression rose was shown to the door by Matt, when she confessed her frustration and how much she was falling for him. He admitted that he did not feel the same and felt stronger connections with the other women.

However, Matt did go on a one-on-one with Jessenia where they go on a “dangerous” obstacle course in a race car, complete with swirling and twirling driving skills to get their heart rates up, which Matt loved as he admitted he is “adrenaline junkie”as was Jessenia as it turns out.  However, on their dinner date afterwards, while dangling a rose in front of her face, he also sends Jessenia packing!

Feisty Kit decided she needs to speak privately to Matt, and tells him she isn’t there yet relationship-wise, and does not think its fair to him to still consider her for the hometowns or the final rose.  Kit said: “It’s a rest-of-your-life sort of situation. And you deserve somebody who is 100 percent sure about you getting down on one knee tomorrow and that’s not me.”  Next thing you know, Kit is eliminated by her own valiation.

The controversial Rachel Kirkconnell, who last week had a social media frenzy surround her when a video came to light that claimed Kirkconnell had “liked” posts with the Confederate flag on it and shared QAnon conspiracy theories, as well as a photo that surfaced on Redditt of Kirkconnell in 2018 attending an “Old South” plantation-themed college party, received another one-on-one with Matt on last night’s episode.

Amid the controversy, Rachael then posted her response on her Instagram which included: “At one point, I didn’t recognize how offensive and racist my actions were, but that doesn’t excuse them. I was ignorant, but my ignorance was racist.”

During their date it seemed like Rachael is a clear frontrunner making this situation all the more awkward, especially after seeing the promo for the ‘hometowns ‘that followed the episode, which featured her parents questioning Rachael hard about Matt.  With Rachael getting a rose, so too did Serena, who hated their yoga date, and seemed a bit standoffish, but Matt gave her a rose anyway.

In the final rose ceremony of the episode, Bri and Michelle got the last two roses, while Pieper was out of the competition.

So, who do you think will get a proposal from Matt …Bri, Michelle, Rachael or Serena? Comment below.  But first check. out the promo for next week’s ‘hometown’ episode.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
