This week on The Young and the Restless it looks like Abby (Melissa Ordway) gets back her edge and shows her back-girl, take-no-prisoners Newman side, when she asks Victor (Eric Braeden) to help her crush Mariah (Camryn Grimes) out of her and her man, Tyler’s (Redaric Williams) lives!

In this week’s promo from CBS Daytime, Abby does not want Mariah to worm her way back into the heart of Tyler, which finally makes some conflict for the duo. What will Victor do since he had been working with Mariah to gaslight Sharon (Sharon Case)?

And in other Genoa City news, while Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Hilary (Mishael Morgan) sleep together, what will happen when Devon (Bryton James) and Lily (Christel Khalik) find out about it? Will it be war with the Winters family?

Watch the promo after the jump, and let us know if you hope the Mariah vs. Abby duel escalates? Or, do you want it resolved pronto?

The writers are making a mistake now . We clearly remember the story was Victor some how ran into this girl hired her and then she went to him later and told Victor that Sharon had a secrete not that he hired her for finding out the secrete. Victor hired Cassie/ Mariah to clearly torture Sharon to hurt her mentally and physically

If Mariah does worm her way back into Tyler’s life, maybe it’s a clue that Abby should leave Tyler. We can but hope.

Am not feeling the Winters storyline. I just do not care. always seems the potential for Neil and company is lost. There just has not been strong heat or interest since Dru died in that fall. no other character has the fire, the passion.

Maybe this faux-Cassie game will be Victor’s downfall? His games have grown tiresome for me. Perhaps it is time for the character to begin a road to redemption. It will be a long journey, and the trip could be quite interesting.

Loving the twisted storyline too! Can’t waitt to see how her and Ian are connected.. I tthink she’s going to be cassie twin foreal, maybe Ians student or follower” and tyler and her definitely have a secret… Could they have had a baby which she had to abort? Did they commit a crime that only they know aboutt?? Anyway, Nuabby needs to grow more on me cuz I’m missing Marcy! Yes ordway looks like Ashley’ lol.. And Tyler” is gorgeous. Still wrapping my head around mariah being compared to lilly???? Maybe the attitude.. Who knows lol.

Camryn Grimes is fueling much of this show right now. I’m not feeling nu-Abby and Tyler and his group. This show is too littered with people I don’t care about, like Neil and his clan, boring Abby and the younger set, Stitch, Kelly and their group. I tune in and don’t recognize what show I’m watching.

New Abby has grown on me. I like her, and her bubbly and heart of gold
personality seems in line with how Marcy played the character.
Could do without Tyler, though. Find someone new for Abby!

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
