THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Victor and Nick Showdown!

Courtesy/CBS

It’s a Newman vs Newman showdown on Wednesday’s episode of The Young and The Restless.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Victor (Eric Braeden) continue their arguing, as we finally figure out what Victor is up to … or do we?

Nick is upset at Victor for using the paternity of Christian to get to him.  Christian, as we all know, is the biological son of the “late” Adam Newman. As the men argue, Nick points out, Victor is not above using the little boy as a way to get what he wants.  It finally comes out how long Victor has known the truth, and Victor says that he would never use it against Nick. Nick gets mad and says, “Until now!”

It becomes clear when Victor says that Christian will be the future of ‘Newman Enterprises.’  Nick says that he won’t decide that for Christian, and neither should Victor. Next, Victor goes on about it being his legacy.  Nick fires back, he wants none of his children to be molded in Victor’s image. Then, he thanks his dad for revealing what he’s really up to, noting that he hasn’t changed and never will.  Nick leaves, and Victor is overcome with tears.

Later, Nick looks at a photo of Christian and says that his grandfather is out of their lives completely.  However, Victor shows up and warns Nick that if he tries to keep Christian from him, he will take him to court, and it will be a dirty custody battle.  Nick says that it’s his name that is on the birth certificate.  Victor fires back that that doesn’t matter, Adam is Christian’s bio-dad.  Nick reminds Victor that Adam did not want his son to fall under Victor’s influence.

Then, Nick brings up that Victor is a convicted felon, and could very easily wind up being barred from seeing his grandchildren.  Victor insults his son, calling him arrogant and promises that he will regret taking him on. A boisterous Victor says, “Do you think you can beat me?”  Then, he really goes for Nick’s achilles heel, when he brings up Sharon’s (Sharon Case) past and how it would show a judge that Nick makes very, very bad decisions.

Nick is shocked that he would drag Faith’s mother and his granddaughter through the dirt again.  Victor says they’ll let a judge and jury decide, and walks out, leaving Nick pissed, who now must deal with the machinations of his father, of potentially losing the little boy who he raised, and a promise he made to his brother.  What will happen next?

What we can say, is that Joshua Morrow and Eric Braeden delivered the goods in highly dramatic, emotional, and riveting scenes as the Newman men.

Watch a clip from today’s episode featuring Eric and Joshua below.  Then, let us know in the comment section what you think will happen next.  What did you think of the performances by Morrow and Braeden?

Performances were great ! Now this , yet again I believe Adam Newman by Michael Muhney should be graciously reintroduce to the world of Y&R . I for one I’m
A fan . Since the day Billy Miller & MM were let go , the soapy soap has never been the same . I know you have heard this THOUSANDS OF TIMES , Right ? #PointProven

It bears repeating, Lala. Those actors are just too good to forget, although Justin Hartley was excellent in his interpretation of Adam. If Adam is recast, those shoes will be bigger to fill than Carly’s Pentonville sandals. Clomp, clomp!

Oh, gee….Soaphound, I just saw your post….my kids think I am having a fit of some sort….doubled over laughing.
Do they wear sandals in jail?

it bears repeating, Lala. “…Since the day Billy Miller & MM were let go , the soapy soap has never been the same ”

I have never felt that heightened awareness of how magnificent this genre is or ever will be ? again

oy! it was so much fun for me.. to christen the passing of the torch… from Jack Abbott and Victor Newman… to Billy Miller w/Amelia Heinle; Michael Muhney w/Sharon Case.

Oy.. and this is truly when and the last time.. Y&R deserved to be #1.

Michael Muhney; for the win… AND Sharon Case truly would reign supreme

sigh

nuMAN blood please

Cdn fan

Totally agree with you, bring back BM and MM, MM is so overdue to come back to Y and R

Celia
Celia

You can say that again,Cdn fan,
I literally cried when MM left Y&R and the lights went out when Billy walked off its stage.
I get no enjoyment watching Gina T and Jason T trying to fit those roles….it just isn’t working.

Patrick
Patrick

I can cry

Performances were excellent . That aside , Adam Newman must return asap to make something worthwhile of this s/l to say the least . Michael Muhney is wanted back by thousands as you have heard , right ? 4 years of fans clamouring for his return ? #IprovemyPoint

When did anybody start caring about Adam?!? Did I miss something?? Sharon’s past is checkered?? I hear these lines and I go PLEASE!!! The best part of the show is the Traci scenes gosh sign that woman to a contract!

Soaphound
Soaphound

Oh Kay, isn’t Traci the greatest? I would love to see her more often and…wait for it…as Jabot CEO. Why not? It’s a new way to go and would wipe the remaining air of smugness from Kyle’s face!

Harry
Harry

Traci makes me cry. I mean, it really seems like she believes in the Abbott family. She doesn’t seem to be acting. Can Y&R please stop hating on Jack? Watching Jack run around being disappointed, rejected and blindsided is akin to watching Charlie Brown trick or treating all night and only receiving a bag of rocks.

Celia
Celia

Yeah, Soaphound….Traci humbles me. There really is no one like her on any of the remaining soaps. She’s driven by neither spite nor regret…..considering she lost her child so tragically; her heart held its purity.
Funny how the recipient of Colleen’s heartbis so not-Colleen-like. Just the opposite. How’s that?
Yet, Soaphound, I got the feeling, today, this vicious ‘attack’ on Nick is a ploy to keep him in GC. The best way to do that was to sue for full custody of Christian.
Nick has no choice but to stay put. Very clever move by the writers.
See? I like complications such as this—-in true soapy form!!

Thought Nick was going to punch Victor.

The only time Victor was truly challenged by a child of his was when Victoria slapped him then played by HT /EB went nuts it has never happened again. He has problems with always having to win I have a journalist friend who will not go close to him. Also MM was a superb Adam but he will never be back he has been blacklisted I have no idea if the rumors were true or not but his reputation is ruined in daytime.

Harry

Josh Morrow really brought his A game to the table–bravo! And Eric Braeden is so good that he makes it look easy which is why I think he’s sometimes underrated. When Nick rejected his job as COO of Newman and told his father off, Victor had tears brimming in his eyes. The look on his face was utter despair because he cannot change, cannot be the father Nicholas needs and wants. I know that look.

Patrick
Patrick

“…Victor is overcome with tears. ”

^^^^ what is this; and, what; does it mean ?

even, for; Nicholas, who has been staid and missing

period

now Victor is crying
change of shelve

or something, PLEASE;

what does it mean…

change the guard

the Newmans are missing – a disaster

Victor and nikki haven’t acted in a long time cull them both

add Nicholas; sorry, it’s Victoria; for the show

bam

nothing else

let’s do it

Celia

Hey, Patrick,
I think Victor is crying because he knows he is hurting Nick.
By the same token, he is still under the influence of his own greatness—-blinded by his own majesty—that he is the ultimate sage—the only supreme being who knows what’s best for his family, encompassing young and old.
How dare these subordinates, borne of his loins, disobey his law?!?!
I do believe he loves his family with all his heart…he does have a heart ( Ha! We DO know that fact), but has he left his soul on the auction ‘table’?
I thought he was spectacular!!!!!! Love Eric—I love the secret smile and nod he gives during the intro to the show….
And Nick? I thought I had lost him for a while…..but, as Harry said, he showed his stuff ….something I had lost hope in ever seeing again.

K/kay
K/kay

Ok so I thought the storyline a few months ago was Sharon Phyllis ugh and Nick were keeping the parentage of Christian a secret so now Victor knows which we knew but they didn’t ! I’m going nuts are we sure Pratt is not back in the writing room?

I don’t think we know, as said, that Christian is Adam’s child. That idea just flew out of the blue sky, so to speak, and became somehow true.

This DNA testing must have an inhouse person. Or, we are all watching a crazy Soap we just love and hate.

Same thing for Jack and John not being his father!

These are not comfortable twists and turns.

Celia
Celia

You bet, Tani…..I still believe Christian is Nick’s…..as is Jack John’s son.
We may suggest and speculate, hither and yon…drive ourselves nuts; but, the writers will eventually do what they want, after playing with our collective minds, a bit.
DNA testing is supposed to be uncontested…infallible; yet it is getting so ridiculous lately, I don’t put much faith in soap labs, LOL….. something always comes up to naysay what is, or was!!

I dislike Nick ; such a disrespectful son. Plus, very disloyal and untrustworthy. In addition, he never liked Adam from the beginning; now Adam’s son, Christian , is his son; I know not!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Must Say Goodbye to Mike As Maurice Benard Delivers Heartbreaking Performance

Any of us who has watched their loved one slip further away from Alzheimer’s disease could relate to exactly what Sonny Corinthos (Mauice Benard) was feeling on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.

It is always a tough and horrific decision when families contemplate what to do with (in this case) a parent, and where is the best place for them to live out the remainder of their days.  Sometimes, it’s clear cut and easy, and sometimes it’s difficult.

In the case of Mike Corbin (Max Gail), Sonny and Carly (Laura Wright) gave him a home and safe place to be, but as the disease progressed and as Mike’s reality becomes his own, and has he has been losing more self-control. it becomes apparent that they need to be able to give him the best life they can now.

In story, Griffin (Matt Cohen) points this out to Sonny and Carly when they discuss the progression of the disease on Mike.  It is apparent that Mike wants to go live with, and be with his “girlfriend’ Yvonne at Turning Woods.  Sonny and Carly struggle to come to term with that fact, but know they must let him go.   It is tough for them to put Mike permanently at the care facility.  Sonny thinks he may have been too selfish by keeping Mike with them so long.  Ultimately, he arranges a room for his father at the facility.

Mike comes downstairs after packing his bags, and thanks them for taking him in.  Hey says, that they are nice people, but that Yvonne is waiting for him, so he is moving in with her.  Sonny tells his dad, he has a room at the Corinthos’ home any time he wants it.

In the most touching moment, Carly offers to drive Mike to get to Yvonne faster.  He really appreciates it, and Sonny decides to just let Carly do this alone, because it would be too difficult on him to watch his father check-in and have to leave him behind.

Before he heads out, Mike forgets his gloves and he goes upstairs to look for them.  Sonny decides to check Mike’s suitcase to see if they are in there, and begins to break down.  He sees the framed photo of himself and his father from the Nurses’ Ball last year, and packs it in Mike’s suitcase.  After Carly drives off with Mike, Sonny begins to cry.

We have to give kudos to Maurice Benard in these scenes.  Anyone who has been witness to watching a parent go through this most dreadful disease, could feel his pain.  It was a heartbreaking and raw performance.

So, what did you think of the scenes where Sonny must let his father leave his home and move into the care facility?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And in case you missed some of the scenes, check them out here.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: A Killer Can’t See & Maxie and Nina Visit Nathan’s Grave

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, a now blind Ryan is freaking out, because as he is in the hospital (while Finn tries to figure out if the same virus that caused Anna’s temporary blindness caused his), he learns that Lulu is in surgery and still fighting for her life.  If she lives, she will name him as the culprit who stabbed her.

When Anna and Finn visit “Kevin”, Anna asks him if he ever worked for the WSB or DVX.  “Kevin” claims he did not.  Anna believes all of this is the handy work of a doctor who worked for the international spy rings.  Finn asks if “Kevin” had been in contact with something that wasn’t his recently, and it is then Ryan flashes to Lulu’s license, realizing he needs to find it and its in his coat pocket.

“Kevin” gets rid of Ava from his room, and attempts to get out of bed to get to his coat and locate Lulu’s driver’s license.  However, since he cannot see, the license goes under the hospital bed, and just as he is trying to grab it, Ava walks back in the room.

Meanwhile at GH. Jordan explains to Laura that the police found a bloody footprint going in the opposite direction from Lulu.  Valentin and Nina tell Charlotte that Lulu is in the hospital, and the little girl insists they go to her now.  Charlotte leaves with Valentin, Nina stays behind.

Elsewhere, Jason is underground trapped in some kind of built out setting to probably nefarious crimes. When Sam goes for help, the fire department shows up.   Sam calls her pal Spinelli!  She asks him to check the maps of pipes and tunnels under the city.  Spinelli reveals that the water system leads out to the harbor at Pier 55.  Jason also finds a small space that he is hoping to swim through to get to the other side of the pier.

Then, in touching scenes, Maxie goes to Nathan’s gravesite and reveals to her beloved late husband that she is getting closer to his brother, Peter.  She also admits she is scared to start a relationship with him.  She asks for a sign from Nathan if it is OK.  As she cries, Peter shows up with a handkerchief to wipe Maxie’s tears.  She admits she doesn’t know how to let go of Nathan and move on.  Peter assures her that Nathan will let her know when it’s time.

Later, Nina shows up and tells the duo about Lulu. They had to GH where Peter is then in question for the crime; being the last person they can substantiate that spoke to Lulu before she was stabbed.  Jordan also reveals to Laura that Lulu’s license is missing from her belongings.

Back at Nathan’s grave, a grieving sister, Nina, shares heartfelt moments with her late brother, missing him, and filling him on the latest in her life and Maxie’s.  One again, Michelle Stafford delivered in these scenes.

Finn shows up with results for “Kevin”.  He tells him the tests shows he has the same virus as Anna and he will need surgery to correct his sudden loss of his eyesight.  Finn also tells “Kevin” this good news: Lulu made it through surgery and will make a full recovery.  Ryan is in trouble and he knows it.

At the end of the episode as Sam makes it over to Pier 55, she spots Jason’s body in the water and jumps in to save him.  We fade to black.

Now, check out the emotional scenes performed by Kirsten Storms and Michelle Stafford below. Then, let us know, do you think Maxie and Peter should move forward with their relationship? How can Ryan get out of the predicament he finds himself in now? Will Lulu come to and identify “Kevin” as her assailant ? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS IS US Delivers Stunning Episode As The Big Three Meet Their Uncle Nick

If you caught Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, you saw television drama at its best, and one of the best installments of this heart-tugging series, doing what it does best – intertwining past and present day storytelling, and revealing a shocking truth that will have a ripple effect for the Big Three and Rebecca.

The episode was a beautifully scripted hour of TV called, “Songbird Road Part 1”.  The title refers to the address of where the very much alive Nick (brother of Jack) is living 166 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

In the past, we see Jack receiving postcards from his brother under the alias “Clark Kent” or “C. K.” and reaching out to him over an extended period of time, trying to reconnect.  Jack hides all of the postcards.  When one of them shows up at his home mailbox, and it reads “Last one”, Jack decides to take a Saturday trip to see his brother, and lies to Rebecca as to where he is headed.

In the present day, the Big Three set out on a road trip to find their Uncle Nick, now that Kevin’s journey to Vietnam and back has revealed that Jack lied to everyone – telling them that his younger brother died, when he is actually alive.  Seeking the truth and to locate him, Randall, Kevin and at first a reluctant Kate, set out to the address on the postcard Kevin has.  Rebecca does not want to go, obviously, struggling with the fact that Jack never let on during their marriage that his brother was alive.
