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

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.

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

“…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’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin … With Jax

If you caught Tuesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, you witnessed Cynthia Watros (Nina), well, being what she does best, delivering a performance that only Cynthia Watros can do!

Everyone knew the nuptials of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and Nina were potentially cursed with all of the secrets looming, especially the major one that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not Nina’s biological daughter.  After overhearing as conversation between Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Sasha in the women’s bathroom, Lulu (Emme Rylan) just had to tell the truth right in the middle of the long-awaited wedding of the  lovebirds.

Courtesy/ABC

After dropping the bombshell during the the ceremony, at first, Nina could not believe this at all, especially coming from Lulu; who is still dealing with the fact that her marriage to Dante is over, so why would she want anyone else to be happy? Problem was when Nina asked Sasha to just set the record straight,  she didn’t the way Nina had thought she would.  Sasha goes into the story on how she duped Nina for money, but then became so fond of her, and loved her like a daughter would.

Valentin is freaking out, because he knows he could be implicated in this mess, and while there was no proof on hand of how three DNA tests were all switched to make it look like Sasha was a DNA match for Nina’s bio-daughter, he looked the guilty party as well.  A betrayed and angry Nina feels in her gut that Valentin had something to do with this, and is rocked to her core that he lied to her again.  Nina screams she has to get out of the chapel.

Then, who should just be coming by at the right time outside the nuptials, that knight in shining armor, Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher).   They make a exit together, where Jax takes Nina back to his brand new home that is barely furnished at this point, but there is a couch! And there is some scotch!  When Jax tries to calm Nina down, so she will talk about what has happened, all that she says so far is that Sasha is not her daughter, and that she never had one.

Back at the wedding, Valentin vows revenge on Lulu. Liesl lies to Maxie (Kirsten Storms) that she had no idea that Sasha was not Nina’s daughter, and Valentin makes a call to someone.

When the smoke clears from this one .. we predict these possibilities:  Jax and Nina share more than a kiss … Nina go back to Valentin and this charade of his involvement in bringing Sasha to town remains a cover-up and she gives him yet another chance .. or is it 100% curtains for Valentin?  Stay tuned.

Whatever happens next, Cynthia Watros reminded us all why she is a force to be reckoned with on daytime screens, or any acting medium for that matter.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Brooke is “Slap” Happy … And Don’t We Love It?

Several characters are pushing the buttons of Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang) these days on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, and in return for their nasty remarks and machinations they have pulled, they have been on the receiving end of a wallop when Brooke’s hand meets their face!

First, there was Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), who was on the receiving end of bitch-slap from Brooke.  Now on Friday’s episode, it was another showdown – Shauna (Denise Richards) vs. Brooke.

Now that Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) is looking to move in with Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) for awhile to give space for him and Brooke to hopefully repair their strained relationship, Brooke shows up at Shauna’s.  Then, the gloves come off, and Brooke wants to know what happened the night Shauna spent with a drunken Ridge.  Shauna tells Brooke that she just made sure that her hubby was alright.  Brooke questions Shauna about not calling her to pick up Ridge. Shauna reminds Brooke that she told her off shortly before that night.

Then, Brooke channels her late mother-in-law, Stephanie Forrester and calls Shauna, “A slut from the desert.”   Shauna bites back saying that she is not the only slut, after all, Brooke slept with all the Forrester men and that Deacon, Hope’s father, was actually her son-in-law!

That was enough for Brooke to slap Shauna, and she really hit her target … so much so … that during the scene, Denise Richards’ earring came off!  During the slap, Brooke warns Shauna to stay away from Ridge with the following words : “He knows you’re trash. Do you understand me?”

Seems to us that Thomas and Shauna might be the next duo to conspire to destroy Ridge and Brooke from ever reconciling.

So, are you loving that Brooke is laying the smackdown on all those who wronged her and her family?  Do you think Thomas and Shauna might end up in an unholy alliance? Comment below.   But first, watch this soapalicious scene featuring Katherine Kelly Lang and Denise Richards.
