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.

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.

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.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Chrishell Stause Shares & Performs Emotional Tribute To Her Late Parents

It has been a challenging few years for former soap and current Selling Sunset star, Chrishell Stause, who is currently still in the running for the Mirror Ball Trophy following Monday night’s competition on Dancing with the Stars.

Last night, Chrishell shared in the pre-dance package that she was performing a contemporary routine with her pro partner, Gleb Savchenko, in honor of both of her parents who died from lung cancer in July of 2020 and April 2019.

Stause expressed: “They were really loving people. Some of my best memories are with my mom, dancing with her in the living room.  No one would be more excited about me being here and doing the show than her.” (referring to her mom who passed away this summer).  She continued on to say: “Right before I dance, I really feel her calm me, encourage me. That has been the most special thing I will take away from this show.  I know that my parents are with me. My mom’s name was Renee Stause, and my dad’s name was Jeff Stause. And this dance is for them.”

 

Dancing to “Stars” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Chrishell and Gleb delivered the most emotional performance of the night.  And the judges took notice, as Carrie Ann Inaba said to Stause: “You poured your heart and soul into that dance.   Bruno added: “That was so emotionally engaging, so raw, so truthful, irresistible because you gave everything you have.”  While the three judges including Derek Hough also gave a rougher technical critique of her to improve upon next week, Chrishell and Gleb still scored all eights and 24 out of 30 overall.

At the end of the night, during the reveal of who was safe and who was in the bottom two, host Tyra Banks revealed that Chrishell and Gleb were safe.

Then, after combining the scores and fans’ votes, in the bottom two were Johnny Weir and Vernon Davis.  In a close decision, Derek chose to save Johnny, and Carrie Ann chose Vernon. So, it was up to Bruno to cast the deciding vote and he saved Johnny, sending Davis, the former NFL Pro football star, home.

Watch Chrishell’s emotional dance below.   Then let us know if you are rooting for Chrishell and what you thought of the very personal story she shared last night via the comment section below.

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Jesse Metcalfe Eliminated, Chrishell Stause Gets A Surprise From NKOTB

Last night on  ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, another soap opera alumni’s journey on the ballroom dance floor came to an end, when Jesse Metcalfe’s (Passions, Desperate Houswives and Dallas) ) and his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, were sent home by the judges after landing in the bottom two.

After combining the judges scores and fan voting at home, the other couple joining Jesse and Sharna in the bottom two were  Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd.  This season it is up to the judges to choose who stays and who goes when forced with picking between the two lowest scoring couples of the night.. Bruno chose Vernon, Carrie Ann followed and Derek also revealed he would have saved Davis or Metcalfe as well.

With Metcalfe eliminated following last’s week’s departure of Ex-Another World’s Anne Heche, that leaves only Chrishell Stause still in the running vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy from the world of daytime drama.

 

Here’s a recap of what went down on the dance floor for Metcalfe, Stause and Davis last night.

Jesse Metcalfe and Sharna Burgess – (Tango) – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Dancing to the classic by Tears for Fears, Metcalfe promised in the pre-package to loosen up and show a more human and vulnerable side to his dancing.  However, although there was a bit more coming from Jesse this outing, the judges criticized him for needing more technique than just performance. SCORE 19 out of 30

Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko (Cha-Cha)  – “The Right Stuff”

Revealing to all on the pre-package, Chrishell is a huge New Kids on the Block fan from back in her teens, and was stoked to dance to their song during the night’s 80’s competition,   However, during the performance, while Stause has shown improvement, this time the judges noted she seemed to slow down to much during the dance and also she needs to watch her footwork.  After Gleb and Chrishell danced, Tyra Banks had a surprise for Chrishell when the NKOTB sent in a viral video message to their biggest fan!  Stause was overjoyed.  SCORE 19 out of 30

Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd –  (Tango) – “Living’ on a Prayer”

Performing to Bon Jovi’s classic “Living on a Prayer”, Davis donned some rocker dude long locks and hit the floor with Murgatroyd, but the former pro football star looked stiff moving around the ballroom.  Judge Bruno noted that his footwork was a bit flat.  However, Carrie Ann shared she liked the quality of movement he was showing them.  SCORE 21 out of 30

So after looking at the clips of their performances below, did the right person get sent home in Metcalfe vs. Davis?  Do you think Chrishell can hold out longer on the series through the next rounds of competition?  Let us know in the comments section. (Also check out the moment when NKOTB message to Stause is played during the broadcast.)

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
