THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Nick Has Been Masquerading As J.T. And Blindsides Victor

Courtesy/CBS

On Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, as Victor (Eric Braeden) comes face to face with J.T. he tells him that he’s a coward hiding in the shadows, who goes after the defenseless, but now the tables are turned.  Oh, have they Victor?  Might want to think again!

Victor reaches into his pocket making it look like he might pull out a gun, and all of a sudden the voice emanating out of J.T. is a very familiar one!  It’s Nick’s voice who says, “What? You’re going to shoot your own son now?”  And with that, Nick (Joshua Morrow) pulls off his prosthetic mask of J.T. revealing himself with a typical ‘Nick-ism’, “Sup Dad?”

Nick then lets loose and tells Victor that he has been behind everything that has happened surrounding “J.T’s re-emergence” including the leaked documents.  Standing his ground, Nick tells his father how he has been watching how Victor operates his whole life, and how he has always been perceived Nick as weak.  Then, Nick launches into how Victor was proud of Adam who was more in his image, by the despicable things he would do in business, and in his life.  Nick says he could deal with Victor making a mockery out of Nick’s business career, but not taking his son, Christian.

Victor is not impressed, and somewhat amused by his son standing up to him.  However, Nick has warning for him, stating: “Things are in motion that can’t be stopped!” Nick doubts that Victor will mention any of this publicly, because that would mean he was taken down by his “underachieving son.”

Later, Nick returns home to Sharon with flowers in tow  Then, Victor shows up.  Sharon asks Victor the latest in finding J.T.  Victor guesses Nick hasn’t filled her in on the latest developments and exits.  Sharon asks Nick, “What have you done?” Nick reveals he has been masquerading as J.T.  You can see just how Sharon is somewhat freaked out, because she is covering up J.T.’s “murder!”  Nick goes on to admit he leaked the documents, too.  Sharon is shocked, and said she saw J.T, out the window.  He apologizes for scaring her, but he needed to carry out his plan.  Nick says once Victor got custody of Christian by attacking Sharon’s mental state in the arbitration, he was going to make him pay.  Sharon asks if Nick even thought what pretending to be J.T has done to his sister, Victoria (Amelia Heinle).  Nick will not apologize for what he has done intimating there is more ahead,  and leaving Sharon to question his behavior stating, she doesn’t know who he is anymore!

I was very disappointed in the whole so called reveal/showdown between Nick and Victor. I knew this was going to happen and couldn’t wait for the fireworks.There was hardly any emotions, and they acted like they were just reading their scripts to each other. Also the women ganging up on Nick, after all the crap Victor pulled,was very unrealistic to me.No use saying any more. Everyone will have their own opinions about this, but Nick being a favorite of mine, has my suppirt, and wish he’d done more to the old S.O.B.

I agree favorite actor off screen nice guy but man he has for years played the mad frat boy or the horney frat boy! The best storyline he has ever done was Cassie’s death. I do find it silly that everything Victor has done to Sharon she has any concern for Victor just tell Nick the truth and bury this storyline along with JT

Victor hardly shows emotion anytime. He acts as deceitful and crooked as always except when he was acting sick then he showed emotion but it was for himself.

You’ve never heard of the saying “Negative Nancy?” It’s just like “Debbie Downer,” but instead of a downer, they’re negative. It’s just a saying, Nance!

Gotta keep you guys in line, T.
Seriously, I was pretty young, but, I do remember another time….another place …..another Cricket…almost a lifetime ago…loved her. Christine is too much of a hard-arse. I liked the softer side of her, which translates into Cricket.
I wouldn’t call her dealings with Michael Baldwin as a relationship, exactly!!!! My memory is a bit foggy….He was a perv, wasn’t he? Now he’s one of the good guys? Ha!!
I am soooooo feeling nostalgic for those days….. weepy!!

Right, My T?…does a fiend really change so drastically?
However, it is a soap….and, yeah; where are Michael and Lauren?….it’s like “Phake”-Phyllis is acting as Lauren’s ambassador these days. She is one of the dominatrices on the show and beyond…..FakeBilly is not even close to Billy Miller’s gambling persona; no matter how much he tries….
I’m awaiting for him and Summer to tumble onto the proverbial ‘sex in the hay’, except that the hay will also be fake….incendiary, soooo, all smoke!!
Me no like!! Everything about this gambling thing is flat, been there, done that. Not interested or interesting.

I know Scott, right? Negative Nancy and Debbie Downer all into one. LOL…..I need uplifting here….
Did you see today’s episode? I had touched upon the fact that I had heard Hilary was going ‘out’ with a melodramatic bang…..but, I was hoping it would not be true…
….awful finish…..more and more I am being sunk within the Y&R doldrums…oh, shucks!!
By the by, is the network allowed to use the words “Summer in the City”? If you noticed, the phrase appeared on GC Buzz. Isn’t that a song by The Lovin’ Spoonful? Isn’t that plagiarizing? Does it apply? I always thought it was a no-no.
I make an effort to instruct my students to use quotations on “borrowed” material…..no matter the length.

Ron Carlivati called and asked for his storyline back. He has a copyright on prosthetic masks in daytime television.

Typical General Hospital storyline, Cesar Faison (5’4”) masquerading as Luke Spencer (6’2”) wearing a mask. Dumb!!!

Celia

HaHa, Joe. Too funny.

Alan

The whole Mission Impossible mask bit is soooooooo not Y&R’s style and Nick doing this is completely out of character as he would never do anything to cause beloved big sis Victoria anxiety over the possible return of her abusive ex.

Celia
Celia

Tell me about it, Alan…..as I said on the other thread, I expected Faison to turn the corner.
Also, I don’ t know how much more of Nikki’s living-on-another-planet-behavior I can take.
Here is a mother who is so incensed over what her son did ( Gee, like father like son much?), yet is deaf and dumb when it comes to Victor.
I don’t know….perhaps, it is just I? I doubt it…..to a mother, her kids come first….before all others, includingn her spouse…..except for Nikki. Ha! Pathetic mothering….always was, always will be. For a NY minute, when she clocked JT to protect Victoria, I thought; ‘yeah, good for you, Nikki’, but, NAH, she is beyond pathetic.
On another note…I take it the baby Hilary is carrying is not Devon’s? Why the subterfuge with the sexy “guest” then?
Hmmmm, sperm donor, mayhap??
Also, I have said this a few times that Mishael must be pregnant in real life, at least a couple of months ago….or trying….finally, the little bump reared its adorable head.
Why else would TPTB be trying so hard —making a big deal, rather, in getting her pregnant on the show?
I heard it through the grapevine that Mishael is, indeed, expecting her second child?
I don’t like the way ‘they’ are ‘making’ her leave—-if true. We shall see.

I was never a fan when General Hospital concocted these stupid masquerading storylines with masks, and I am still not a fan. SO. STUPID. NO. THANKS. Also, the “love” scene between Ashley and Neil was so awkward and forced-embarrassing to watch.

damien
damien

the only people blindsided were the viewers who actually thought this storyline would go somewhere!
..totally lame. what a waste of time.Victor vs his son 3.0, Along with Billys gambling 3.0, Hilary and devon 3.0 , mariah and tessa 3.0, Paternity undoing of a legacy character 3.0….
damn. ANYTHING EXCITING OR WORTH WATCHING ON THIS SHOW ANYMORE? this show revolves around 4 boring dragged on storys with the same 8 characters like c’mon!.. we need Jill back, Lauren, Michael, Paul,Christine more Kyle, Mariah, nuNate and younger characters for the summer.
End the J.T murder mystery and the current regimes murdering of this iconic soap.

dmr
dmr

You are SO right, Damien! I think I fast-forwarded thru most of yesterday’s show. Billy’s storyline is atrocious. Kyle setting-up Mariah and Tessa is not a storyline that I am interested in seeing (and watching Devon pretending to act and set them up was cringe-worthy. He can’t act period). Lily acting as though her children have a bigger stake in Devon’s company, than his own offspring, is so funny. I think she is one of the dumbest characters EVER to appear on daytime television.

Celia
Celia

Yeah, damien. …said the same thing. The repetition turns the viscera. But, I was surprised!! I actually thought it was really JT….I wished it, so that I didn’t have to deal or listen to those four hens clucking and squawking every single day!!!! Wide-eyed with oh-my-we-are-doomed…

Apologize to everybody who guessed this I thought Y& R would never stoop to such nonsense. A friend told me that got a Sony question in the mail about food or talk shows ! I have no idea but I think they might be on thin ice. They have froze salaries that’s why they lost Ed& Mm. Crazy

Harry

It’s disappointing. I really hate that Nikki accidentally killed JT and then those four idiots decided to cover it up and bury his body rather than do the right and rational thing–call the damn police.
I hate that JT is dead and died as a one dimensional villain. JT was a complex guy and I would have liked him to undergo therapy to figure out why a once heroic man, turned into an abuser of women. And no, not to EXCUSE his behavior, but to EXPLAIN it.
I still hold out hope that JT is alive. He had a heart condition which could be used to explain why those four idiots found no pulse.

Latonia Franklin

I loved it,but I really hate to see Father and Son fighting against each other! I was really hoping it was JT coming back,because I don’t think he’s really dead!Father and Son fighting takes the fun out of it!

This would have been more compelling if Victor had shown any reaction at all. I didn’t see a “shocked” Victor. Maybe Eric Braeden thought it was a travesty and threw away his performance in protest? Not even so much as a “well I’ll be damned”. I hoped that he would end the scene by shouting. “Now get out of my alley! You got that?”

Celia
Celia

Whoa, Mister Media!!! You’ve got Victor down pat. I love it!!
I don’t remember a time when these two weren’t at each others’ throats…..part of the ‘decor’, right?!

I thought I had seen it all the day Jordan arrived on a crime scene wearing high heels. The nice clothes she wore were ok with me but the footwear bothered me because I don’t think anyone needs to look glamorous if that someone works in a police department.

Well, Nick did have to grow a set BUT to me its a way to TRY and fill a void missing on the show, ADAM! I dont buy this at all!

My comment was deleted after the website had issues today, so I am resubmitting it
In another writer’s hands this might have worked– the “good” son pushed beyond his limits to seek revenge on his father then slowly descends down the same path that will eventually turn him into the very thing he hated — his father– very Shakespearean— but with Mal’s style of writing, it will be a tragedy but not in the good sense of the word. I wish it was Adam under that JT mask- because frankly the show has never been same without him. JH was good but there has to other talented actors out there who could take over the role, if MM is forever to be banished–yet with Mal writing style, if Adam was on the show, he would just destroy that character like he has been slowly butchering all the characters since he took over as head writer.

Celia

It wasn’t deleted, Mary….it was crossed….you can find it on one of the GH threads. I forgot which….
I actually commented on the mix-up. Some of our other comments appear there , as well. I thought it was only happening to me.

It’s time the Nick character to fight back to victor as he has gotten away with too much. In real life one would never get away with all the dirt and mean things this Victor character had gotten away with. Want to see Nick and Sharon stay together and not let the over dramatizing Phyllis get her claws on him. Some of it these days are so boring wish things could happen to make it exciting Sooner. Let’s see what happens in the near future

I am sorry, but it was sooooo ridiculous. C’mon Mal Young, Y&R fans deserve better than this. Y&R is not GH or DOOL the Jim Reilly years. It just didn’t work. On another note, when will Billy stop being the town screw up? You know he will put Jabot in jeopardy and Jack will swoop in and save the company, which will bring about the departure of Eileen Davidson/Ashley in September. This was once my must watch show, but I can”t say that anymore.

ahaa!
My man Victor will Destroy Nick..
Victor now can have Christen taken from Nick if he wants to.
And, when Sharon is known to have taken part of covering up a murder, well Christian is sure to have another home.

Nick is no Adam.
Nick did a cyber crime, it was nothing much to get files and release them and there is not much game to that.
Adam was a challenge for Victor but not Nick, Victor will destroy him, wait for it.

Celia
Celia

But why, SuzieQ? Victor is propelled in doing what he does by selfish ego. Not love. Does he not realize it’s wrong??…Nick loves Christian as a parent should, regardless of his DNA.
Victor is obsessed and possessed. He treats his family members as puppets and possessions. There comes a time when children do rebel…..
Look at Victoria and Nick. Victoria is all in for the money…..that was the first thing she asked her father—-commanded, rather….very disappointed in her. Always liked her….hmmmm….
By the same token, Nick and Abby are not driven by money but for the greater good.
And Nikki? She should get on her knees and beg God for forgiveness, turning her back on her son. In my book, that’s sacrilegious.
I can’t see how anyone can derive such satisfaction by hoping for a father to quash his child’s endevors, dreams….whatever, su. That’s love? Are you a mother? LOL.
Victor has one foot in the grave. He should find some Rosary beads and start praying, snake that he is.
But, hey, I do love Eric—he’s an excellent family man, loving husband, father, and grandfather.
I, especially, love that little thing he does by raising his brow during the show’s intro. Very endearing to me.

OK…you know what: Nick ‘masquerading’ as J.T. is further proof that Nick is nothing but a clueless and drooling IDIOT!!!!! I am now starting to root for Victor…which truly SICKENS ME…lol. BEYOND YUCK!!!!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nelle Is A Free Woman … And Shiloh’s Widow

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the pick-up of the oh-so-soapy and delicious moment when Shiloh’s widow reveals herself at the memorial in his honor.  Taking off her HUGE black veil/hat, all the attendees are stunned to see it none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).  And it was the perfect set-up for naughty Nelle when she had so many of her enemies all in one place as her captive audience. Clearly, she wants revenge on all of them.

At the ceremony, Nelle explains that she and Shiloh while in prison had a small ceremony and “Dawn of Day” devotee Daisy was their witness, which Daisy confirms.  Nelle goes on to say that she shares Shiloh’s wishes to be part of little Wiley’s life, and since he is no longer among us, she will makes sure she is a part of it!

Of course, throughout her statements, Michael (Chad Duell) is looking less than amused and cuts to the chase and asks her what she really wants.  And with something that all viewers of the ABC daytime drama series, let out a collective, “uh-oh”, Nelle replied “What belongs to me.”   As we know, Wiley is Michael and Nelle’s biological son, and with Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in the hospital, it would seem the perfect time for her to make her move to get closer to the child she gave to Brad (Parry Shen).

Next, Chase (Josh Swickard) arrives on the scene and says to all that what Nelle is saying is true. She is not only Shiloh’s widow, but she is no longer behind bars! Nelle explains how after being “stabbed” by Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) and the ensuing circumstances she was able to be granted a get-out-of-jail card!

To take the set-up of this story to even another level, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) admits to Chase that she took the job as Wiley’s nanny!  Chase does not think it’s a good idea for her to care for Wiley’ and then eventually have to leave him with Brad and Lucas, once Lucas is recovered.  Willow assures Chase she can handle it.  As for Nelle, she has it out for Willow now, and be rest assured, she is not just going to stand by and let Willow move in on her bio-son.

Jason (Steve Burton), who was present at the memorial, heads to Carly (Laura Wright) to tell the bad news; that her enemy Nelle is out of jail, and running around free and is Shiloh’s widow.  Carly as expected is very distraught and unhappy to hear the news.

turns out, Nelle is not done with her day yet! Next, while the Quartermaines conduct an ELQ shareholders meeting in their living room; Ned (Wally Kurth) says the first order of business is the late Oscar Nero’s ELQ shares.  As the Q’s begin discussions which dissolve into bickering, in walks Nelle! Yup, since Oscar left his shares to Shiloh and she is his widow, well, she is now going to have her say … probably in everything!  Fade to black.

GH’s Genie Francis Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This past Monday’s episode of General Hospital was one of the series best installmnets in recent months filled with long awaited confrontations and reveals.

The cast at the epicenter of it which included the talents of: James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Cynthia Watros (Nina), Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava) all had stellar moments.

Courtesy/ABC

However, there is nothing like getting to see the icon herself, Genie Francis (Laura), do what she does best; the momma bear who is at once shocked and overjoyed that the son she grieved for over three years was very much alive, and the flip side of the anger over the fact that he let her, his sister, and most importantly his son, Spencer, continue to believe that he was dead, all for his vendetta and quest for revenge against Valentin Cassadine.

For it was Valentin who was the man who shot him and now is no longer the heir apparent to the Cassadine throne, now that the codicil said that it all belongs to Nikolas and Valentin was Helena’s son, not Mikkos’.

The thing of it is, everyone is great when Francis does her performances, and you could see that in the work of soap newcomer, Coloma, who you could just see through his eyes the disappointment and despair he caused his mother all these years, by Francis’ mesmerizing delivery.

Beat after beat in that episode, Genie brought the fire, the sorrow, and the wisdom, as Laura to every moment.  It was also well-written that Laura did not just have a happy reunion with her son, but a complex one fraught with issues to be ironed out.

Then, in the punctuation of that episode, was there anything better than watching Laura’s jaw-drop when Ava struts in telling Nikolas it’s time to tie-the-knot?

That is why Michael Fairman TV names Genie Francis “The Power Performance of the Week”.

Let us know in the comment section below, if you enjoyed Genie’s performances as much as we did.

THE BACHELOR: Hannah Brown and Hannah Ann Rock Peter’s World In Season Premiere

Peter Webber, “The Bachelor”, seems to have a penchant for former beauty pageant queens from the south named “Hannah”.  In the three hour season premiere of the reality-competition 24th season, the first impression rose went to Tennessee-native Hannah Ann Sluss, who interrupted Weber three times while he was getting to know the other female contestants, and apparently it didn’t bother Weber, who felt their feelings on shared family values, was part of the reason to give her the key rose of the premiere, which automatically makes her a frontrunner.

But hold your horses, Hannah Brown returns, not once, but twice, in the episode to help Peter’s journey kick-off to finding love, only, the thing of it is, she dumped him on her season of “The Bachelorette” and as viewers learned later in the episode, she may still want a chance with the guy!

Photo: ABC

This season premiere was set-up differently, when it opened with a scene from the final rose ceremony, where Peter receives some key intel from host and EP Chris Harrison, which sends him reeling.  We don’t know if Peter ever makes it back out of the hotel room and heads back to propose to someone, or the whole thing goes up in flames, or if Hannah Brown has a message or a shock for Weber that she relates to Harrison.  Everyone is trying to guess just what this ending could be that has been teased as “different than anything anyone has ever seen” on the series.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas Takes Down Valentin And Ava Has A Surprise Announcement

Between plenty of references and obstacle courses (designed to incorporate and have many double entendres on Peter’s professional life as an airline pilot), and the windmills where Hannah Brown and Peter were revealed to have had sex multiple times during  her season of “The Bachelorette”, the series also had a contestant named Kelley, who rubbed all the women the wrong way, cheating her way to win the obstacle course for a ride in the sky with Peter solo.  Thing of it is, we learn that Kelley and Peter met previously before filming the ABC reality-competition series, and at the same hotel they were at for filming in Westlake Village, California.

The end of the three hours provided plenty of sparks, and a major cliffhanger when Hannah Brown and Peter end up behind the scenes and the two have an emotional exchange, when Peter is confused by Hannah’s feelings that she regrets choosing Jed and Tyler over him.  Peter admits he was hurt, add that to the fact that if she questioned her choice why she didn’t reach out to him, to which Hannah replied: “I didn’t know if you wanted to get past it.  I thought you wanted to be the Bachelor.”

Peter asks Hannah if she would consider joining the other women in the house and be in his season for finding love.  We don’t know what her answer will be as the show chyroned “To Be Continued” across the screen, leaving Peter in tears and Hannah B. with tons of mascara running down her face.
