THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Who's Wheeled Out Of Fairview?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Things are about to get “heavy” according to the latest promo from CBS Daytime, next week on The Young and the Restless.  As viewers saw on Friday’s episode, Patty Williams (Stacy Haiduk) is back and as disraught as ever.

Paul (Doug Davidson) puts his sister back into custody, and into Fairview to get the psychiatric care that she needs.  But there’s only one problem!  Patty detests the care of Dr. Anderson (Elizabeth Bogush) and she basically tells her brother that.  Patty also admits it’s not Sharon (Sharon Case) who she had a problem with when she was in Fairview before  … it’s trusting Dr. Anderson!

Meanwhile, Nick (Joshua Morrow) lets Sharon in on his plan with Sage (Kelly Sullivan) to find out information on Dr. Anderson, and pretending to make Sage look unstable.  Nick even tells his ex-wife that “Sandy” kissed him.  Elsewhere, Sage is being baited by Dr. Anderson to dredge up her feelings for missing her “dead” son Christian.  The evil doctor manipulates the situation for further.  She tells Sage that Nick and Sharon are spending time together.  Sage knows Anderson is up to something.  Nick comes back to Fairview and sees Patty there.  Right away, Nick is concerned for Sage’s safety.  But now, Sharon has called Dr. Anderson and tells her she needs her to come over right away!

And then comes the new teaser for next week:  We see a knife, we hear someone scream, and then we see someone being wheeled out on a gurney at Fairview, apparently dead! Nick says, “Someone’s dead because of you,” seemingly blaming Adam (Justin Hartley).  While Dylan chimes in and says to all involved, “This isn’t a case! This is our family!”

So, who do you think will meet their maker next week on Y&R?  Watch the promo after the jump, and then weigh-in!

Oh, boy! Yuck…4ever; that visual just killed my lunch. LOL. You are naughty!! HaHa! I think you’re right, though. It cannot be anyone else….it just wouldn’t make any sense. Unless all the writers went wacko. I hope it is Anderson, but then, there would be no story or satisfaction. She could just be wounded and in a coma, which means this story will linger and linger and never be told. Let’s hope it “ain’t” so. Maybe the orderly tried subduing Patty, by orders of Anderson, ( so happy to see her. Love her. I wish she’d be ok and remain)… Read more »

Hi Cee Cee I could not agree more. It was an accident for Adam as well (if he even did it) and he is still being branded. I think Victor’s back and even though Adam’s trying his hardest to get Victor’s love & approval I think Victor gives him a rough time. I don’t know why he doesn’t just tell Chelsea the truth about the baby to begin with. It was one time and she was living with Billy. Oh well it’s a soap! I did notice Bummer was back. I was hoping her night job would keep her busy.… Read more »

@Nikki. You’re right, Nikki. I wish Summer would just stay in her room all day, as far as I’m concerned. ( take Kyle with her). What foes she do, exactly? No one goes to school on this soap. Then they come out with BA’s, MA’s or PhD’s. I don’t know why Delia’s real killer has not been found yet. I am so convinced Adam didn’t do it. I guess they haven’t found the logical person to pin it on yet. As Harry says, among others, why not just confess to Chelsea. She already is privy to the fact Adam slept… Read more »

Well, its a soap so they have to take you on all these back roads when we could have gotten there in ten minutes if we would have went straight! Yes, Noah is a good Newman, all he had to do is go to Paul immediately after he used Billy as a speed bump and it would have been over! Speaking of Billy, Jason is doing a great job as Billy but I hope he drops his deep voice soon! We know how Jason talks and its not like that!

What is a Labido? A new canine cross breed? Any relation to Labradors? I am rather bored with Chelsey and Adam, and I never thought I would see the day that I would be bored with Adam. It’s not Justin’s fault–he is an amazing actor. It’s just that they keep putting he and Chelsey on the rinse and repeat cycle. How many times must we endure the same old conversation about how she cannot trust him when he will not tell her the truth? Why won’t he tell her the truth about little Noah and the hit and run? And… Read more »

Oprah Winfrey? Why? Is Sharon getting a car?
I am loving Sage. Examine her face closely, Harry (which Harry sure you?). Sage’s face tells a story. I love it when she gives that sly, sidelong glance through her hair…..where we know exactly what she will say, without missing a beat. Classic Kelly.
I think Sharon will trap Anderson; if not, she really is useless. Too much adoration for one insipid, controlling doc.

NOBODY CALLS OUT THE GREAT VICTOR NEWMAN! Here is my question, no Adam should not lie to Chelsea but why the hell is she so obsessed with what Adam is doing, work wise? Let the guy breath! Go design your cloths, spend time with Conner and relax with your friends! Adam needs a little space! She is pushing him away even though she packed her bags on Friday. I PRAY Adam and Sharon get back together!

PS: Harry, maybe Dr. Anderson will give away cars to everyone in Fairview on Monday!

Totally agree, Timmm. I love Chelsea and Adam as a rule, but she is suffocating him lately, jeez! She won’t just leave him alone a minute, ugh. When she said the other day that she packed her bags and was going to leave, I was like “GOOD! Buh- bye”. But of course she probably isnt going anywhere. Also agree about Lily and Cane.

Nanci. I do agree. Chelsey has turned out to be a bore and a fish monger’s wife.

AND…..Lily didn’t just sleep with Joe TWO times, she treated Cane like utter crap while in the process. She ran to the police when she found the bag of money, she forbid him to see his own children and she was hostile to him during the time period when she slept with Joe. Cane is actually an abused husband and he needs psycho therapy. Unfortunately, Dr Anderson seems to be the only shrink in town.

Well, now that we know it’s Dr. Anderson, I’m really pissed!
How, and when, will it finally come out that Sullivan is actually Christian?
Do we really have to suffer through more scenes of Sharon and Dylan cooing over “their” baby and poor Sage continuing to suffer over her loss?
That crap should have been cleared up before offing the character!

CeeCee

Patty is the key, SZima. She knows the truth about the baby ‘switch’. But, no one will believe her.
How convenient for Sage to have blood on her hand, transferred from Patty….Anderson’s blood.

Patrick, my friend. Nick’s actions make all the sense in the world. Think about it. Both Sage and Nick have arrived at the conclusion that Anderson has a thing for Nick. Thus, he is exploiting this to the best of his advantage. This cannot be an easy feat for Nick….there’s nothing sensual about this woman. It probably took a will of steel to kiss her back. Nick feels no pull of desire towards this nutso, believe me. Nick is the perfect male specimen. He is so beautiful. Well; I digress…lol. I was starting to lose faith in him. But, he… Read more »

CeeCee

Yes, SweetC,
Two very important developments, that I can see. Sharon is playing ball. She represents one key in opening Anderson’s mind and her past. The therapist has become the patient…role reversal. Sharon will definitely learn something during this house-call.
Second key: Patty! Now, I understand her return. She will open Sage’s and Nick’s minds….suspicion becoming a fact. Patty’s cryptic innuendos, her silly, almost crazy remarks will soon make sense to Sage….the more intuitive and observant of the couple. Nick can be such a dud, sometimes. I am so enjoying this….at last!!! Later.

Of course it was Dr. Anderson, aka Sandy Allen– the question is did she really get murdered or is she staging her death in order to frame Nick and or Sage for her murdered? If she is really dead I hope they don’t make Patty the killer– but she will be blamed, as well as Nick, and Sage, and Sharon who is off her meds again– and throw Adam in there because Adam has to be part of every murder in town somehow—Ian Ward, Mariah and orderly number 3 could be thrown in there too– a murder in GC, must… Read more »

You think so, Mary? As I said, what would be the point of Anderson dying? The story would die with her. On the other hand, my very wise Mary; what better revenge for the good, ole crazy doc to have on her ‘enemies’? With her death, they would never live a happy life.
Also, I still suspect Anderson is giving Sharon a placebo.
The scene at the looney bin are getting more bizarre each day. How fitting!! I wonder if Faison is hiding somewhere in there with Heather Webber.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Oh, Mary, what a great deduction! We saw the letter opener on the floor. Both Sage and Nick were in Anderson’s office. That faux ‘weapon’ could, very well, have both their fingerprints on it. And, here it starts. It is going to be a process of elimination….will take forever, though. Paul is not the sharpest….
But, golly gee, wait a minute, Mary. Dylan will come along on his white charger and fix everything. Later.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

PS.
As you suspect, Mary, Patty will be blamed. She is the consummate scapegoat. But, I’m with you. I hope it wasn’t Patty. I love this wounded bird. And, I blame it all on Jack. He surely did a number on her ….since her teens, from what my grandmother tells me.

Hi CeeCee, Your grandmother is absolutely right!!!!! Back in the day, Jack (originally portrayed by Terry Lester) totally ‘did a number’ on poor Patty (originally portrayed by Lilibet Stern, a blonde). You see, Jack (if I remember correctly) didn’t pay enough attention to Patty…or to their marriage. And, his cheating on Patty sent Patty herself over the edge. CeeCee…I am in full agreement with you…I (also) believe that Jack is to blame for the way that Patty is. Another thing: For a lot of years, Paul resented and flat-out HATED Jack for the way that Jack had treated Patty. CeeCee…I… Read more »

Hey, Jay,
Exactly. Jack is a terrible person. All Patty wanted was to be loved by him. He abused and used her love at will.
But, everyone has forgotten that deep down he is as dastardly as Victor. However, TPTB have elevated Jack to sainthood. Why? I can’t say. All I know is that I detest Jack more than I do Victor. Later, my friend.

Hey, CeeCee, HELL TO THE YEAH Jack is just as dastardly as that GRUMPY OLD DINOSAUR Victor!!!!!

I mean, to me, both Jack and Victor (in terms of dastardly, devious and manipulative behavior) are basically the same person. Y-I-K-E-S!!!!!

probably Dr. Anderson. looks like a who-dunnit is coming. it also means it may be a while before it’s revealed Sully is Christian. not a fan of the baby switch storyline,Sharon’s going to end up being the fall person again.

I like both of your reunions. I am tired of Adam and Chelsea. Like Harry pointed out, its not Justin’s fault, he is a good actor, Chelsea is just up his azz about EVERYTHING and its annoying! Chelsea was a con artist, she is no angel. She should understand that when hitching up with a Newman, you get the lies, deception and secrets. Not that Adam should cheat on her. Thats wrong. Business wise, she should mind her own freaking business and stay away from Marissa!

@Timmm. Absolutely. I have always proclaimed Chelsea’s shortcomings, albeit most just can’t get enough of her. People do not change that drastically. I just am not a fan. And, her newfound affinity with Marissa doesn’t help her cause, either. The same goes for her mother (Daisy Duke, lol). Remember how deceitful and underhanded she was? Like mother like daughter….and father. I do agree with you Timmmbo.

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
