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: Quinn Walks Out on Carter Leaving Him Devastated

Monday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful featured a stand-out performance by Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) as after Carter professed his love for Quinn (Rena Sofer) and asked her to run away with him, only she put on the brakes!

Quinn tells him that she loves her husband, Eric (John McCook), and is going back to him and can’t run away with him, although that prospect sounds enticing. She goes on to say that she has built a life for herself with Eric and she is not willing to give it up.

Photo: JPI

Carter is devastated.  He believed what they had was so special that they could get through anything – mind you, the two have been having an affair (OK’s by Eric at this point, because of his ED), and she is a married woman.

Following their heart-to-heart, Quinn walks out on Carter determined to make her marriage work.  Meanwhile, Katie (Heather Tom), who had just told Bill, (Don Diamont) she won’t give their relationship another chance, heads to Carter’s to give him a piece of her mind on his fling with Quinn, and how he could do that to Eric!

Following her tirade, she gets quite the surprise, when Carter admits to Katie that he loves Quinn.  Katie is stopped in her tracks.  We fade to black.

Many have been suspecting that Katie and Carter will actually become the next couple on B&B.   Do you think the two will begin a relationship? What did you think of Lawrence Saint-Victor’s performance in the episode? Are you rooting for Quinn to come back to Carter? Let us know via the comment section, but first check out a pivotal scene between Heather Tom and Saint-Victor from the episode below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: What Did You Think of Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding? (PHOTOS)

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it the vows and the “I do’s” of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), and the couple are now officially married.  However, pangs of guilt, emotion, and ‘how to solve a problem like Ashland’ also filled the ceremony.

Leslie Brooks (Janice Lynde) played the piano, Tess (Cait Fairbanks) sang a song, and Victoria came down the aisle with her father, Victor (Eric Braden).  It was actually the moments between Eric Braeden and Amelia Heinle that were the emotional high points as you could see the love between the characters, and the actors.

 

Photo: JPI

With the nuptials in Tuscany, which brought Hunter King and Michael Mealor’s characters of Summer and Kyle back into the mix, along with Janice Lynde, Victoria was said to never look more beautiful and she chose, after all of Sally’s (Courtney Hope) machinations, to actually wear the dress Sally designed, which was a smash!

The drama came from what was Gaines (Jamison Jones) going to do and what ammo did he have to bust up the nuptials in his revenge against Ashland.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes upon him in a upstairs terrace room, and instead of helping him stop the wedding, he actually locks him in the room.

Photo: JPI

Nick then has a decision to make …. does he stop the wedding, which he knows his sister would never forgiven him for (he was already uninvited to the nuptials), or bust open the situation?  It is none other than Adam (Mark Grossman) that tells Nick to look at Victoria before he makes his move saying, “She’s happy. Do you really want to be the guy who wipes that look off her face on what should be the best day of her life?” Just then, Ashland and Victoria become husband and wife, They kiss as everyone in attendance applauds.

Throughout the wedding, another highlight was every time the camera would pan to Billy.  His face said it all as it was exceedingly and increasingly hard for him to watch Victoria marry another man, let alone Ashland. Jason Thompson played those moments to perfection. After the wedding, Billy goes up to the newlyweds and wishes them well.  During the ceremony, he received a text from Gaines, but did not read it.  When he later opens it, there is a video attachment.

Photo: JPI

Meanwhile, back in the upstairs room, Gaines is confronted by Nick, Adam, and Victor, who Adam alerted to the situation; instead of calling security, which Nick asked him to do.  A stern Victor tells Gaines that he’s still a threat to Victoria and her company, and he won’t allow that to happen.

When we go back to Billy, who is now with Lily (Christel Khalil), he looks shocked by what he just saw in the video message from Gaines.  He shows it to Lily saying: “He (Gaines) just sent us a video of himself detailing all of Ashland’s crimes including the evidence.” Lily knows this is huge news! Billy tells her that if they don’t publish within the hour, Gaines is going to send it around to other press outlets.  When Lily asks, “What should we do?”  The camera pans to Billy looking at Victoria and Ashland, where Victoria is smooching with her new hubby.  Billy looks very concerned and very torn. Will he be the person to break the backstory of Ashland and his crimes including the forged will and his conniving for Camilla Rhodes’ fortune… or will he not do anything with the intel to save his enduring relationship with Victoria?  We fade to black.  Tune-in Monday.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Ashland & Victoria? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out some of the moments and looks from the wedding in front of the camera and behind the scenes in our photo gallery below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
