Y&R Preview – Week of November 26, 2018

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Whats coming up next week in Genoa City?  For the week of November 26th look for Nick (Joshua Morrow) to have to make a major decision when it comes to having Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) live with him and carrying on their affair, or the possibility of rekindling his relationship with Sharon (Sharon Case).  When Sharon shows up at Nick’s and finds that Phyllis has moved in with him, Sharon is not one happy camper.  What will Nick’s next move be?

Meanwhile, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) is turning the tables on Tessa (Cait Fairbanks), and using some ‘Newman’ intimidation tactics to ensure Tessa has no more proof that she and the other women killed J.T.!  But will what Victoria does next backfire on her?

And, Devon’s (Bryton James) little sister, Ana Hamilton is all grown up and come back to Genoa City.  Will she be causing more trouble for her brother than he bargained for? And is Devon spiraling into addiction?  From the looks of the latest promo from CBS Daytime below, that could be the case.

Here’s what to watch for:

Monday, November 26

Nick is caught between Sharon and Phyllis.

Tuesday, November 27

Nikki connects with Victor.

Wednesday, November 28

Devon receives an unexpected visitor.

Thursday, November 29

Summer sets her sights on a new challenge.

Friday, November 30

Billy conspires with Kyle.

Let us know which storyline you are looking forward to seeing most via the comment section below.  But first check out a this Y&R video promo.

The JT story line is incredibly stupid. We have yet to be given a viable explanation as to why four intelligent women decided to not call the police when Nikki rushed in to save her daughter from harm. Their explanation as to why they did not call the police is idiotic at best. Phyllis, who took on the role of leader, is one of those annoying know-it-alls who knows nothing and Curly, Larry and Mo followed her moronic directive. Making Tess the blackmailer made this story even more irritating and tedious. This story needs to be wrapped up ASAP. Also, I resent like hell that a legacy character of 40 years has vanished from the canvas with nary an explanation as to where he went. Suddenly Rey is occupying Paul William’s office and no one talks about it. Unless Y&R is trying to enter the science fiction genre, this is an example of reckless, disrespectful and sloppy writing. Doug Davidson and his character Paul Williams deserved better and so did the viewers. Something similar is occurring with Neil Winters. Suddenly his God son Nate is stepping into situations which would normally feature Neal acting as the strong and wise patriarch of the Winters’ family. Now we have monotone Nate coming in to dispense advice to Lilly, Duh Yawn and Cane instead of Neil. To compound the aforementioned problem, the young man who plays Nate cannot act, and he has zero personality. Truly, my cactus plant is more exciting than he is. Moreover, Duh Yawn is a boring, somnolent character whom no one cares about–stick a fork in him, he’s done. In fact, he was done 10 years ago. On a positive note, the actor they found to play Kyle Abbott is a huge score–this young man can act and the screen just sparkles with his charisma when he is in a scene. He also seems like he could really be Jack Abbott’s son–he acts and looks like a young Jack Abbott! I love him with Lola, the hard working girl who operates a food truck trying to make a name for herself. I am glad Jack has been finally given a love life but the actress who plays Carrie is only twenty-nine years old. I am not an ageist by any stretch of the imagination but I wish they could have found someone a little bit closer to Bergman’s age. I recall Bergman said in an interview with Mr Fairman that the reason they cannot find an actress in his age range is due to budgetary concerns. I always thought he would be terrific paired up the Kassie Depaiva but alas, I think she’s too expensive. I wish I could be more positive but Y&R’s has failed to: 1.Treat their legacy actors with respect. 2. Write character driven storylines 3. Focus more on the talented actors who play interesting characters we care about rather than focusing on the ones (both old and new) who suck the oxygen out of the… Read more »

Brilliant post, Harry. You hit every target! Phyllis’ incessant bullying got them into this mess and yet she and Nikki are STILL threatening Sharon about how HER life will be over if they’re uncovered! Seems to me like Sharon has the least to worry about, Miss Multiple-Murderess Nikki! Nate, Mia, and Rey are DISASTROUS characters with no charm and nearly ZERO sex appeal. Paul should be welcomed back with a major apology…to us and to Doug Davidson. Jack’s new icy romance is a joke but you are so right about Michael Mealor. He’s a terrific find and is a magnificent Kyle. I love the way he’s putting Summer in her place, finally! All in all, I am despairing over the current state of things. Perhaps more of Beth Maitland and Victoria’s “handling” of Tessa will liven things up. How little we cling to these days.

Harry, you presented a Thanksgiving dinner here! What a ton of “food for thought.” Your final points were the dessert!

To begin, what in the world were the set designers thinking when they created Nick’s new “mansion.” Did he really think Sharon would want to live in a bachelor pad of some 10,000 sq feet? How ridiculous.

I’m sensing (ha ha) that Carrie will eventually be involved with Nate (or will it be Ana for him?) Either case, the dull acting and duller character development will tank the formula.

The last good thing I saw on this show was the Abbott family meeting, the night Ashley left. And that seems like months ago.

I’m still guessing JT was not really ever dead and he somehow clawed himself out of the grave (or someone helped him.) It seems like the only “rational” explanation for a mess of a storyline to appropriately conclude. If you recall, JT was seen at a doctor’s appointment only a few weeks after he resurfaced in Genoa City. We were to believe something was up with his health (hence, a low pulse could make him appear dead to the 4 Stooges you coined so aptly… which one is Shemp?) Something out of a good Shakespearean drama– alas, the Bard did it so much better!

And, what was that garbage with Esther wanting to do makeup for a last second bailout for Phyllis? More wasted time and more wasted characters. And, what company in any part of this country (I’m from the midwest, mind you) would ever give no credentials Phyllis a CEO position? Sink holes– that’s what is becoming of our beloved show.

Bill Bell would have SLOWLY ushered in characters for us to become involved with, to grow to know and care for, root for and tune in to. The entire shove-it-down-our throats-approach makes me choke. For this reason, I care nothing for the new Hispanic family. Although, I like the pairing of Lola with Kyle… it’s got that West Side Story kinda thing going on… sans the violence. I do hope Lola stops rolling her eyes so much because she can be a keeper.

As for Mariah, one of my favorite characters– get her out of this Tessa messa! She’s so much smarter than this situation they’re putting her into with the grifter.

As for Devon– I never liked the character… and money did him no good.

Wondering when the writers will realize snow arrived on the Wisconsin/Illinois border the past 3 weeks! And, with some major dumpings– somehow GC escaped it.

It’s a soap. Viable explanations are optional.

This was a joy to read. Didn’t agree with everything, but the review was just so delightful.

Why Paul is just missing is almost not forgivable. The entire program has shifted. I find myself watching with less fast forwarding, but struggling about where I am.

So much agreement with the stupidity of the JT storyline. Get over it.

Think I just discovered that one cannot review what has been written, so must conclude. However, wish Jack could have found a more mature woman, find Lola easy to view, Nick’s new home absurd, and find too many new introductions. Can’t tell if it is the acting or the writing that makes us not like Phyllis. Mariah has been my favorite; what is it about her that translates into something “real.”

Lastly where I diverse from much read is regarding Kyle. Because sometimes it seems some of those who write here work in the business, I do not, they see things not available to me. I am beginning to appreciate Kyle a bit more, but he doesn’t “knock my socks off.” Thanks everyone!

When I read that preview breakdown, I’m only slightly intrigued. I like Victoria’s “take no prisoners” attitude about the duplicitous Tessa, and I like seeing Nick in those nice suits. Otherwise, I neither want nor need ANOTHER big storyline for Devon, I dread the return of Ana, and the Nick/Phyllis “horny teenager” behavior is anything but hot. Now, Billy conspiring with Kyle DOES interest me. Phyllis needs to vacate that chair NOW. I don’t care how successful she keeps claiming to be. And take that wall of ice named Kerry with her. Seriously, Jack, you can do better.

Hey, Soaphound,
Perhaps you are right about the “Abbott” conspiracy to oust Phyllis…..problem with me is; I can’t stand either Billy or Kyle. I would like to send them, Phyllis, Devon, Nate, the Ashby kids, the chemist, the Rosales ‘team’ on a neverending cruise to the Landofnoreturn. Did I miss anyone?

The new chemist is AWFUL and has no chemistry with any of the characters. She is as cold as ice! I watched 5 minutes of Monday’s show and it was terrible. Agree with you about Devon and Nosy Nate!

Hi Celia dear. I’ll make a deal with you. Leave Kyle, flush Tessa and we’re good. That scene of Mia and Rey in bed? And here I was, fresh out of airsick bags. It wasn’t pretty.

Celia

Hi, my friend,
OMG!!!!!! I can’t believe I missed the boudoir scene, Soaphound!!!! There was a scene? I have missed a few eps—–OOOOOO!!!!!! Now that you told me, I NEED to search through recorded eps. I will make my husband watch. HaHa!!
I’ll make sure to have plenty of barf bags, albeit THE scene will go right over my husband’s head–he ‘kinda’ makes fun of me. LOL.
❤️

AVP

EEEWWW, it was so not good!

Celia
Celia

LOL, AVP…….I haven’t watched it yet, however, I don’t want to watch it for its “greatness”….. I want to get a few laughs….Mia is far from being the sexy femme fatale—-she does not have that IT factor…..even for me, a woman, it is clear she does not fit the “meow kitty” role…. and Rey is no stud either.
What strikes me as weird is how times have changed. I guess having had one boyfriend since I was sixteen, then marrying him, makes me old fashioned…but, what’s wrong with being a virgin? I thought men appreciated the privilege of being THE first.
Virginity has gone out of style……
Therefore, Kyle can’t handle the ‘feat’? Woah!! He can’t “lead” the “dance”? What a man!! Stupid writing…..it makes Kyle look like a scaredy-cat jerk. ….(sorry Soaphound….LOL❤️).
I like LoLoLoLo-ola…..she has spunk and that innate quality that is so-very-needed on this show. The rest of her “family” are a circus side-show, with Mia as the ring-leader. How long will she be in town? Will she want a taste of all the men in GC?
Hmmmmmm- the insatiable Marie Antoinette?

Celia!

You missed the booking the writers.

They need to get rid of writer Mal Young he is destroying the soap. 14 people have left or been fired in 18 months.

AVP

YES! The show is unwatchable!

Celia

Agreed, AVP. I finally watched the entire episode. I honestly believe what I wrote about Tessa. ( this, also, gives me the chance to correct my sentence. I changed the wording, so I said ‘for she and Crystal….without realizing it….for her and Crystal)…. anyway, the show had been doing ok until the Rosales invaded Genoa City. I want to pull my hair out from the frustration.
I can’t take it. When will these flat stories end? When will the JT’s death ‘ saga’ end? If the body is not in the makeshift grave, chances are he clawed his way ‘outta’ there…….unless….unless Victor knew and got rid of the body himself.
One way or the other….please end it!!
I, also, noticed that Mia looks so much better without so much makeup. She looks much younger than I originally thought.

AVP

The Rosales’ Invasion is DREADFUL to watch. I despised JT, and am sick to death of hearing about him!

Tom

I have only recently started watching again. I loved the Abbott storyline for Ashley’s send off. I am also loving the Rosales family.

Celia
Celia

I can’t wait for Tessa to get her just deserts —-I’d rather use “desserts” for effect? LOL…..I can just taste it–pardon the pun!!
Is it possible for she and Crystal to have orchestrated every mishap thst came their way? Is Crystal really Tessa’s sister? Her lover? Were they and Zach a team and when ‘situations’ became risky ( that is, fear of discovery), Crystal killed Zach? Is he really dead?

I am not interested in Devon’s life and family—the only redemption would be if Little Sister has a magnificent voice, but at the same time, not sing rap , LOL….

Nick and Phyllus is a bad idea. Jack and the chemist is a bad idea. She’s a hortible actress. Jack and Phyllis should be together again. Perhaps the reason for going red again is because the PTB are moving towards that direction. Jack has already started calling her “Red”….. the door is ajar.

I am not into Billy or Kyle, or Summer. So, whatever they do is of no consequence to me…
Happy watching, everyone!!❤️

I have to agree this show is going down the tubes for me. Getting rid if all the good actors and bringing in these young, don’t know how the act characters, what ever for? And dragging out storylunes is getting to be a bit boring too. There is no way 4 women can kill someone, bury them, dig them up and move them, I mean how crazy is this. Guess I will have to stick with my Gunsmoke shows, at least they have decent actors. Do something else to perk up our Soap!!

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.
