It’s been a few months since we have given out the On-Air On-Soaps Power Performance of the Week accolade, but that is about to change, because in riveting and key scenes on this week’s episodes of The Young and the Restless, three-time Daytime Emmy award winning actor, Christian LeBlanc (Michael) was once again in the spotlight, and boy … did he deliver!
The brilliant complexities set in motion by the Y&R writing regime has once bad boy Michael Baldwin desperately trying to keep his troubled son Fenmore (Max Ehrich) from going down the same path as he did. And with that comes drama between father and son, and husband and wife.
Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) is beyond frustrated with her husband that he could choose and believe helping bullying victim Jamie (Daniel Polo) over their own son, Fen! On-Air On-Soaps previewed this story back in December with our very special interview with LeBlanc, Bregman and Max Ehrich here!
In key scenes on Tuesday and Thursday’s episode of Y&R, Christian LeBlanc reminded us all of just why he has those three Daytime Emmys! When Michael confronts Fen about Jamie, and the possibility he could face jail time for his actions, Fen pushed back and played dirty throwing Michael’s previous crimes in his face! It was here that the masterful work of LeBlanc was at its best. Horrified that his son knows of his past with Christine and Paul, and through his tears, Michael tells his son that it is indeed true. However, through years of therapy and begging forgiveness to all those that he hurt, he was able to change his life. Now Michael fears for his son, if he doesn’t change his ways.
And still later in a subtle and magnificent performance, LeBlanc listens as Jamie is brought to the Baldwin home to give his statement to Michael (who is the DA), with Paul present, of his account of what Fenmore had perpetrated on him. As Jamie gives his statement, Michael listens intently with tears in his eyes at the thought of what the more underprivileged Jamie suffered at the hands of his son! Next, Michael has Fen arrested and cuffed, as Lauren looks on and says she will never forgive Michael. This sets the stage for significant trouble for Michael and Lauren’s relationship! The question is; will this duo be able to withstand the riff that Fenmore’s troubled life is causing them?
In his portrayal as a conflicted father on the right side of the law, Christian LeBlanc’s range of emotions, and his ability to convey so much, whether it is in a emotional battle of words, or a restrained scene where you see it all play out through his eyes, gives him the honor of On-Air On-Soaps Power Performance of the Week!
Watch Christian’s ‘Power Performance’ clips below! Then let us know, do you agree with our choice? And, are you into this storyline that is tearing the Baldwin family apart?
