THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Victor and Meredith Liplock! Is The Doc His Get Out Of Jail Free Card?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Since Y&R cast the talented Alicia Coppola to the role of Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) prison doctor, Meredith Gates, viewers have been trying to figure just how their relationship will play out.

We know that Meredith has a past and that she seems quite emotional of late when dealing with the billionaire prisoner.  Now in a preview for Friday’s Y&R, Victor and Meredith actually kiss! Earlier in the week, we saw Victor cozying up to Meredith and planting a kiss on her cheek and walking away quite sure of himself.  Is he about to do his biggest manipulation yet, and get Meredith to work an early prison release for him?

But, could Meredith really be on to Victor  … or, if not, will she become unglued if she feels betrayed? After all, she is working with some pretty dicey criminals inside the slammer.   Make sure to check out our latest interview with Coppola for more on her thoughts on Meredith and Victor.

Now, watch today’s Y&R preview after the jump. Then weigh-in:  Is this one of Victor’s most despicable acts?  Will his sedution of Meredith backfire in his face? Comment below!

I love Alicia and would enjoy her being on the show full time. THat being said, I prefer Victor to lose and see Nikki sue and FINALLY win the Newman Ranch.

I agree. Big time YUCK. You know this is Victor’s ticket out of the big house. This will give Nikki the perfect excuse to start drinking again when Victor and the good doctor start flaunting themselves around town. I also loved the little exchange of words between Lily & Hilary at the end of the show. When Lily made her comment about Hilary chasing after Jack, the look on Hilary’s face was priceless. Talk about slapping a face without a hand! Loved it. I am just now waiting for Sharon’s next nervous break down. She is long over due. Her… Read more »

Right, Soap Queen.
And are we supposed to be all excited that Nikki is divorcing Victor for the 100th time while she battles the urge to drink?
Nikki’s stories are as tired as she seems to be.

Alicia reminds me of the actress who played Sabrina.

The storyline reminds me of the TV show “Prison Break.”

I hoped they wouldn’t go there.

She actually reminds me of Maggie from Six Feet Under who had an affair with Nate when he was married to Brenda. Brenda called Maggie “Ferret Face’.

Whenever Victor’s family is ticked off at him he goes out and finds himself a new family. Whether he is sincere or he is using her doesn’t matter to Victor because it is all the same to him because it is just about him, so as long as he gets what he wants– that is what counts — whether real or not- as for the ick factor after Victor coupled with Victoria’s best friend and Sharon this one doesn’t come close to those, so I can tolerate it if I must. A lot of older men are sexy, Victor isn’t… Read more »

Mary…preach on, my dear!!!!! More and more, Victor reminds me of a spoiled child who throws a temper tantrum whenever he doesn’t get his way. BEYOND CHILDISH!!!!!

Take care, Mary.

Celia…I’ve always thought of cougars as being very, very clever (lol). I think that Victor is nothing but a ‘tired old tiger’ (more lol). Oh…and G-R-O-S-S is right!!!!! MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP MAKE IT STOP!!!!!

Later, my friend.

Well, I liked her at first, but now her never ending tears remind me of Brook Logan, and I sort of liked her relating to him as a father, but now that they are making out, gag-o-rama. This is like Sabrina all over again, but less classy.

This episode (Friday May 20) was so dull I actually fell asleep, which I never do on Y&R. Then I restarted it and dropped off again! Victor & Meredith turn my stomach (though I think Ms. Coppola is playing it well)..how much younger are Victor’s bed bunnies going to get? Naturally, he chose a woman with “daddy” issues. But instead of being a substitute father, he romances her? How low will this man sink? Also can’t abide Stitch stories, and the THREE FACES OF HILLARY is getting old. And I thought this was a sweeps month? !

Soaphound…as far as I’m concerned, Alicia Coppola (as an actress) deserves W-A-Y BETTER onscreen material to work with. Also, Meredith and her ‘daddy issues’…WAH WAH WAH!!!!! Oh…and I think that this has been the W-O-R-S-T Sweeps Month…PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care.

I never really cared for the character of Stitch from day one. To me he doesn’t really mesh with Abby either. Hilary really does need to make up her mind. I just hope they don’t decide to throw her in bed with Jack. That to me would be another “daddy” issue. But I did enjoy seeing Billy and Phyllis go at it. I just wonder if they would stiil go there if Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford were still playing the roles. Something to think about

I love Victor but this kiss made me physically ill. I don’t care for the actress playing the doctor either. I’ve been liking the twists and turns that the writers have come up with, but they are totally screwing up in the last few weeks, imo. We know Victor is setting Adam up for murder, payback for when Jack & Adam framed Victor for murder. I’m guessing that Luca has his dirty little fingers in the frameup. Don’t like Phyliss & billy together either, but, Jack did have an affair with Jill while his dad was married to her, so… Read more »

I guess I don’t hate it, but would have been better for them to just bond as friends
because of similar family issues. That seems more believable, too.

That was disgusted and Sharon Case has never recovered from the storyline of her and Victor nothing was his fault all hers I can’t watch her scenes anymore because just too painful she is phoning it in and I can’t blame her next story line will be her twisting her head around and spitting up pea soup ! Enough as my Dad would say pick on somebody your own size

I don’t like this story line at all. For pete’s sake he’s how old now? This is like a Mel Gibson story only Mel is a bit younger & it’s usually for money. To think of her interested in him for anything other than money is just stupid. He’s been in jail for all of 3 wks. and she just can’t stop thinking about him? If this is true she’s been a prison doctor too long. I use to like the way he protected Sharon and kind of put her under his wing but when he used her & married… Read more »

Just when I might get interested things go too far. Hillary might have been able to be a long time pain, but not daily; too much too soon. Jack, too stupid too soon. Victor and whoever she is; too much too soon. Phyllis and Billy; too much too soon. Victoria sleeping with a bartender without any background; too much too soon. Please don’t do that to Keven and Mariah. I still like them. Let them be dear friends. As a viewer, I can enjoy something happy or smart. Things such as Jack letting Hillary think she is in control and… Read more »

Tani…as far as I’m concerned, that Hilary chick is nothing but an OVER-THE-TOP WHACK-JOB!!!!! Also, I wish that Y&R would cut that Natalie chick loose ASAP. Natalie is W-A-Y TOO ANNOYING AND W-A-Y TOO DORKY!!!!! Furthermore, Natalie adds/brings N-O-T-H-I-N-G to the Y&R canvas…AT ALL!!!!!

Just saying……….

True, I had hopes for Natalie at first, but none of it has come to fruition, like her being a secret Newman or something, but now Chloe is coming back and she looks just like her so I don’t see where Natalie belongs. I’ve had it up to here with characters with no family, job or background like Sage. If I have a sigh of relief that a character was killed, then the writer didn’t do their job.

A CO would be in with the doctor and inmate during treatment. No way would the prison let a female doctor be alone with a male inmate. Not a good one anyway. That’s one problem. The next is, he’s an inmate, he’s married. I don’t believe that Meredith would be crushing on an inmate. I worked in a jail and I valued my freedom far too much to even be tempted to do anything like this. But, then again, my father is not a judge.

Mo…I get what you’re saying here. I totally do. Also, from my end (or whatever), I look at it like this: It’s a s-o-a-p…over the years, soaps (in general) have done things that make little to no sense. Yikes.

Have a good one, Mo.

For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f–king real, dude.”

General Hospital

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.
