Y&R's Nick And His Exes: What Did You Think Of The Episode?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

On Tuesday’s episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless it was the standalone episode of Nick Newman (Joshua Newman) trying to figure out why he has such a messed up love life with all the gals who he has been involved with.

From Sharon (Sharon Case), to Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), to Avery (Jessica Collins), to Julianne Morris Poloha (Amy), to Jennifer Gareis (Grace), Nick has had failed relationships with all of them for one reason or another … and they are all a part of this special episode.

A drunken and down-on-his-luck Nick sort of  “envisions” that these gals are all at the cabin and together as a group, as they confront him one by one.  Even mom, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is conjured up when he is upset over his failures.

Nick, who has at times been deemed, “Nick the dog” for his sexacapades with women, gets a visit from an actual adorable dog who is his buddy throughout his journey in the episode.  Could the dog be an analogy?   It was nice to see Joshua Morrow getting an opportunity to have an episode where he is able to tap into all the things that make us love him and his acting style.  Gina Tognoni also did a more than admirable job re-creating some of the key  moments in the history of Nick and Phyllis.  The big scene though happened between Sharon Case and Joshua when Nick tells Sharon he is over all the lies and deceit that have gone down throughout the history of their relationship.  At the end, it seems that Nick has a realization that he has sworn off women, and is just going concentrate on being a dad to his children.  However, we think there may be a new woman on the horizon for Nick.  The episode ends with Nick in dire straits!

So, what did you think of the episode? Did you enjoy it? What did you think of the performances?

That nothing will change. He got caught in the trap and now will be paired with Sage … another woman. After he just got done saying how much trouble “women” are.

Why do these stand alone episodes never amount to anything? The character never changes.

Get ready for Sick.

I agree, I like the idea of these special episodes, something of a tradition on Y&R, but you are right, PV Jr., why do the characters never change or move forward truly affected by their reflective experiences. I think the one with Billy Abbott (Billy Miller) was the best. The ones for Victor and Nikki seem only Emmy bait.

I miss the Christmas episodes on AS THE WORLD TURNS. Some of those were truly special.

I thought it was boring.

Disapointed that the big return of Amy was for this one episode. I was looking forward to a story in the present and not Nick’s drunken hallucinations.

I kept waiting for personal character growth for Nick, or him taking responsibility in the failures of his relationships, but I didn’t feel like that ever came. It was a neat idea, but I feel like it just highlighted all the weak parts of Nick, not redeeming qualities to make us like him. Also thought we got a taste of the weaker start of Morrow’s acting back in the “Amy” days. Some rough scenes to watch there. But at least he’s evolved and become more natural as an actor I now enjoy. Yeah, this looks like Nick will get wrapped… Read more »

I agree with everything you said. Imagine the look on the new Adam’s face when Nick is going out with Sage.I was really hoping he would reconcile with Sharon at least for awhile but it’s a lot of the same old stuff. Wont feel so bad when I have to miss it to go Christmas shopping.

In contrast, SB, who left that role for YR, just stood around w/arm around Avery today as NotJason (Dylan) on YR. Poor Dylan. He’s such a bore!!! zzzzzzzz That’s another post for another day. I didn’t think it was bad Nanci, but I would’ve like to have seen Sharon or Michael be the lead in a flashback show. Perhaps they have in the past. Like I said, JM’s a… Read more »

The Y&R sweeps is a big YAWN..
watching Nick trying to figure out why he has such a messed up love life- was a fail to keep me awake…
and-
Who is the daddy of VIctoria’s baby is a fail to keep me awake..

Y&R sweeps has to be the worst ever… WTH??

GH sweeps will go down in history of the best of best.. what a huge difference from Y&R
Pratt will need to be a miracle worker to save Y&R..

The idea was good, but the writing was horrible– it did nothing to really deal with Nicholas issues and in the end it just came across as dull and a waste of time. Since all of this was in his head, he was basically seeing and hearing his version of events and who these women were like in his life. I thought recreating the scenes with Phyllis didn’t add to the episode– they should have dumped all the flashback and written some meaty dialogue instead— like Nick being an adult child of alcoholic no doubt played a big factor in… Read more »

Nikki
Guest

If we do that one, I would rather have a “Who killed Summer” story line. Phyllis would go nuts, Nick is already crazy but he would probably blame Sharon, Jack would be worried about Phyllis and old Victor would crack.

jaybird369
Guest
jaybird369

Oh, Nikki…a “Who killed Summer” storyline would be ULTIMATE MUSIC to my ears!!!!! Y-E-S!!!!! And, I-F that would happen (Y-A-Y!!!!!), think (also) about this…
1. Abby would (y-e-t) once again stick her nose in where it DOESN’T belong. N-O mystery there…lol.
2. Victoria would be beside herself aka MORE CRYING. B-l-a-h.
3. A-n-d…Nicki would go on y-e-t another alcohol-fueled BENDER…lol.
4. Most of all, Summer’s, um, death would make Austin GROW UP…and…from there, Austin would find himself a REAL WOMAN (aka un-Summer…lol).

Take care, Nikki. Peace.

@Nikki

that would truly be an explosive storyline

because it would give said persons a storyline…. to catapult their dire straits… like it was Cassie

Sharon, Nick, Jack, Victor, Nikki…. if the Y&R Production team wanted to prop the nonexistent newmans…. and feature Jack

she’s just not an interesting character…. but it would be drama all over again for

Well, I liked it but I was hoping for a little more self reckoning.
The Sharon slamming is driving me nuts His father is the creepy one for marrying his son’s ex wife, not Sharon. And then he treated her like utter crappolla. Yes, she burned their house down during one of her manic episodes but let’s face it–The Newmans have treated Sharon like crap since day one and way before she earned their wrath.

Chris F. For starters she was sick when she first did this and with the help of Victor she was seeing Cassie everywhere. Mother of the year?? Hell no but come on she lost her memory and during that time She found Summer’s sorry a– at the bottom of the stairs when Summer took too many pills, got her to the hospital just in time. Doctors said any longer Summer might have died. Secondly She called Nick from the hospital not Jack. Thirdly She was walking along when she saw Summer freezing out in the snow modelling, she got her… Read more »

I’m not a Y&R expert, but in regard to the “Sharon can’t blame her illness! Sharon knew it was wrong! Sharon’s wrongs are so bad that they cancel all the good she’s ever done! & Sharon MUST pay!” Comments: Why doesn’t Victor have to pay? If changing paternity results of a full grown, 21 yr. old woman is unforgivable and worthy of losing your family, friends and good name, than just counting the crimes Victor has committed this year alone, he should be beaten, tortured and burned at the stake! How bout starting w/attempted murder on Phyllis? The drug he… Read more »

Laurie-(applauding loudly). I was too tired to explain, you did a beautiful job of it. Bravo! And upon JFP’s arrival, Sharon’s character was shred to ribbons. Yes, she has always been flawed but viewers were always allowed to see that girl who was raised by her paraplegic mother and who always felt like she wasn’t quite worthy of the Newman family. Former stripped Nikki was really good at talking to Sharon as if were nothing but trash. It seems the real Sharon is coming back and she and the writers are trying to salvage what was done to her character.… Read more »

How Boring! I’ve watched Y&R for nearly 35 years, and cannot remember a more boring episode. The character will not change. If the writers want the viewers to see a change, then they should have focused on many future episodes where Nick honors his promise to Sharon; understands her mental illness and how it played a major part in the DNA Test Tampering, and work through the issue together.. And what an idea: a daytime super couple working together on a problem created out of mental illness!

I liked it. I have only been watching Y&R for a few years (Cassie had died and Nick was with Phyllis; a different Lilly; Drew went over the cliff) so I liked getting all that Nick history.

I also thought that Josh Morrow was excellent. He showed me a young man who is struggling with his choices.

Good one for me.

1st and foremost I want to say the dog was the star of the show! No insult to the actors, just a compliment to the mutt. Adorable. What’s the name? Bicardi? I’m kind of an outsider as GH is my lifelong soap. I have watched the show off & on through the years & quite a bit more recently, so I may miss some of the history that others can draw on. I thought the episode was an interesting idea & I applaud the show for taking a risk, at least a risk for them. I don’t expect them to… Read more »

I knew that dog would connect Nick to Adam. I also figured out since it was all about Nick’s ex’s that this would be how they would introduce Sage to Nick through her and the dog. I dont mind Nick and Sage simply because it gives us a new couple. Nick and Sharon are over. However, that doesnt mean Sharon should be drug through town. I want Sharon to end up with a new character that makes Nick jealous.

I only recently started watching Y&R so it was a good episode to catch up on Nick and all of the women in his life. I used to like him a lot more before I saw that he’s been quite a tomcat, and not able to live up to his “I love you” with any of them And now he’s doing the same with Sharon. Not saying she’s an angel, but “it’s all her fault” a minute after Nick says nothing will keep up apart again, and i will always be there for you.

Y&R couples are recycled, for decades..
they switch partners and make the rounds then end up with who they started with, and then it starts again..
The Y&R couples are burned out, empty..
It is been there done that way too many times, it bores the poopy out of me..

I would guess, as me, millions are FF through most of an episode..
takes me about 10 mins to watch Y&R..LOL

Isn’t that the way it is on all the soaps, musical beds?
I’ve been loving the show the past few months and the ratings are getting better and better. Nobody is going to love every character or SL, but so far, the good far outweighs the bad, IMO.
I love the new phyliss, nice change from a hysterical schemer to a quietly calculating one.
Now that we have the new Adam, I expect the ratings to go even higher.

Patrick, Exactly what I mean. As I said all the Newman’s would go nuts. It would bring back memories of Cassie to Nick & Sharon. Billy & Victoria would remember their loss. Jack wouldn’t just be worried about Phyllis but remember Summer is like a daughter to him. Fenmore would go nuts because he always had a crush on her,and who knows maybe Abby would go back to the naked airhead she was riding around on the white horse thinking she was Lady Gidiva.

I thought it totally sucked!
It was like the Y&R version of Scrooge with christmas past.
Grace was totally annoying with her, “i’m available”. It was funny the first time she said it, then she had to grind it into the ground.
I muted all the sappy wedding vows that we all know meant nothing.
Also thought it ridiculous that nick is wandering around at night in Wisc, in the winter, in shirt sleeves.
Why was there a bear trap out there? Traps for Bears have been illegal for years.

Episode was just okay. Call me crazy but I just want Sharon and Nick happy for a while…I just can’t believe how awful the writing was back when it was decided Sharon could change test results…that’s ridiculous, still is and always will be. Then, they make her mentally ill so we try to understand the departure from her character. All these promises are made from Nick NO MATTER WHAT we’ll be okay. Well, so much for that, huh. I want some “love in the afternoon” for Pete’s sake. And, bring back Dru, and I mean the real Dru (Rowell) bc… Read more »

I can’t comment on the episode per se as I did not watch it. Nick’s behavior towards Sharon has been deplorable and I refused to waste my time watching an entire episode of that Neanderthal. I knew he wouldn’t take any responsibility where Sharon is concerned and would just blame her. Art imitating life where JM is concerned. Spent my time instead writing to Sony and CBS (not cleaning out my socks drawer).

The soapy Filthy Rich has been short-lived.  News tonight has that the series featuring Sex and the City favorite, Kim Cattrall and former Guiding Light star, Aubrey Dollar (Ex-Marina) has been canceled by Fox in its first season.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
