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.

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… Read more »

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

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.

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

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!

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

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… Read more »

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.

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.

“…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

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… Read more »

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
Guest
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!

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Don Diamont & Scott Clifton Shine In Father/Son Scenes; As Bill Watches Liam’s Meltdown Over the Accident that Killed Vinny

On Thursday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, emotional two-person scenes were the order of the day featuring three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Scott Clifton (who may nab a nominations next year for this story) and longtime soap vet, Don Diamont.

In story, Dollar Bill has done everything to protect his son by covering up all the evidence in his attempt to save Liam from surely a murder sentence and going to prison.

Courtesy/CBS

Bill’s theory: if anyone were to find out that Liam was driving Bill’s car when suddenly out of nowhere came Vinny (Joe LoCicero) – who Liam hates – and he hit him with the car and fatally killed the guy, they would think he had intent and motive. (However, to us there has to be more to the story! Did Vinny just randomly happen to be on the road that Liam and Bill were driving on and walking across it?)

At Bill’s place, Liam is agonizing as he keeps flashing back to the accident.  When Bill comes in from a morning jog, Liam is astonished that his father was out jogging, when they are in deep hot water for covering up their now hit and run.  Bill gets angry and tells him he actually went to see if there are were any cameras near the accident and he is happy to report there were none, so Liam is in the clear.  Therefore, Liam needs to keep his mouth shut and let this go and move on with his life and reuniting with Hope (Annika Noelle).

Not able to live with the cover-up, the lies, and what he did, Liam is insisting he has to go to the police, but Bill shouts: “You are not going to the police!” Liam goes on to his own subplot theory that they can say he hit an animal and then turn themselves in. Bill keeps firing back at his son, that he cannot do anything of the sort. He has done everything to protect his son in this mess and Liam could screw that all up with one wrong move.  Bill says, “All you have to do is…” and Liam fires back, “Pretend it never happened.”

It is then that Bill tells Liam that killing Vinny will haunt him whether he’s behind bars or a free man, and that he should opt for the latter.  Now unraveling, Liam’s convinced the police will figure out their cover-up. Just then, Bill pulls out a news report on his phone about the hit-and-run that has no leads and no ID of the body.  He assures his son there will never be any leads because he took care of everything.

Just then, Hope texts Liam wondering where he is for their lunch date.  Bill tells Liam to text her back saying something came up, he is in no condition to see anyone till he pulls himself together.  Liam texts back that he can’t make it.  When Hope texts back in response, “I hope you’re okay,” that sets up the end of the episode where Liam begins to hyperventilate and cannot catch his breathe, and is frightened and grief-stricken, and horrified at what he has done.  Bill comes to his aid and tells him he will not let anything happen to his son, and to dig deep to put this accident behind him.  Bill expresses that if Liam can’t do it himself, to lean on him.

However, Vinny was just ID’d in the hospital morgue by Finn (Tanner Novlan), so there’s that!

Kudos to both Scott Clifton and Don Diamont for the riveting scenes between father and son within the episode.

So, what did you think of Scott and Don’s performance? How will Bill and Liam be able to continue to cover-up the hit and run of Vinny? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, watch the final moments from the episode below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Bill and Liam’s Car Ride Has Life-Altering Consequences

On Monday’s The Bold and the Beautiful, fans were shocked by the final moments of the episode leaving viewers, who knew that this week the show was promoting a murder mystery, just what will go down from here?

After Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Annika Noelle) looked to be having a moment where they were finally finding their way back to one another, while Bill (Don Diamont) was talking about their children to Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), and having some tequila at the same time, that set up the kick-off to a new story arc.

Things will look pretty bad for Liam after he told Hope his feelings for Vinny, who is out on bail.  As viewers know, Vinny switched the DNA results to make it look as if Liam was originally the father to Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) baby, not Finn (Tanner Novlan).

Liam shares his feelings to Hope on the guy, stating: “I think I hate him. He treated our lives like a game.” He then advises Hope to keep her guard up in case he comes around looking for Thomas (Matthew Atkinson). Hope says he doubts Vinny will approach anyone.

When Bill and Brooke come to the cabin and Bill says some kind words to Hope about how much his son loves her, he exits with Liam.  Outside Bill tells Liam to drive his car home because he has been drinking.  Liam has never gotten to drive Bill’s car.  Once on the road, Liam is all smiles, as he says to his dad that things are finally looking up for him and Hope, and then suddenly Liam hits the brakes!

Liam is shaken as he knows he hit something and is visibly shaken. He utters, “Dad!” As the duo run out of the car they see a male body laying in the road… it’s Vinny (Joe LoCicero)! And the episode comes to a conclusion.

So, what do you think happens next? Vinny dies and there is a cover-up? Is there still a mystery? Will we go back in time and find out how Vinny was in the middle of the road anyway? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Cameron Gets a Gravesite Visit From Zander; A Very Preggers Brook Lynn Returns

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital revealed the return of Chad Brannon as Cameron Webber’s deceased father, Zander Smith, as well as the return of Amanda Setton in the role of Brook Lynn.

In story, an emotional Cameron (William Lipton) is overcome by all the loss in his life as he visits the gravesite of his biological father, Zander Smith, on the heels of losing his stepfather, Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth).  As Cameron looks at his father’s grave he goes on to say that he finally had a complete family unit for it to be taken away like everything else and everyone else he has cared about in his life including his friends, Dev and Oscar.

Cameron begins to lament what would life would be like for him, if Zander would have stuck around, instead of getting himself shot at such a young age.

 

Then, Zander appears to Cameron stating, “I get it, it’s all my fault.”  Cameron goes on to tear into Zander about the way his life ended, while Zander thinks he can still teach his son a thing or two, but Cam says he had the chance to be his dad and really blew it.  No matter what, Zander explains, “I will always be your dad.”  Zander understands that Cameron is angry and feeling all hope is lost, but tries to rally his son to not give in to that way of thinking, because he has so much potential.

Zander truly does not want to see his son give in to the same impulses that he did when he was young and that he wants Cameron to make the right decisions while at this crossroads in his young life.  As Joss (Eden McCoy) and Trina  (Sydney Mikala) show up at the cemetery, the ghost of Zander disappears.  Joss wants Cameron to stop the pity party as they all have been there, and all have lost people they love, but shares that they will get through it together. Cameron looks back and sees his father as he says he is loser just like his dad.  But, Trina and Joss tell Cam they don’t hang out with losers as Zander looks on.

Elsewhere, Brook Lynn, who is hiding outside the Q mansion, comes inside once alone with Michael (Chad Duell) and reveals she is pregnant.  Michael figures out the baby daddy is Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), but Brook Lynn is not sure if she will even tell Valentin.  Michael warns her that she will be playing with fire with Valentin if she is not truthful.

Finally, Maxie (Kirsten Storms) has realized she is in a bad, bad way with all the creepy vibes she is now getting from Peter (Wes Ramsey).  She knows she has to protect her unborn child any way she can.

So, what did you think of the scenes between William Lipton and Chad Brannon? Are you happy to see Amanda Setton back as Brook Lynn? How will Maxie get away once and for all from Peter?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
