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!

What did you think about Nick wearing a J.T. mask and shocking Victor?  What did you think of the performance of Joshua Morrow in the scene where he lays the smackdown on Victor? What do you think will happen next?  Has Nick turned heel?  Comment below.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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… Read more »

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?”

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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?… Read more »

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

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.

Photo: ABC

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.
