Poor Nikki! No wonder she's having such a hard time to recover from her alcoholism. Her family is so dysfunctional. Even Nick is trying to help Victor. I thought he was trying to be his own man and keeping his distance from his father's nefarious deeds.
Now Abby has been selected by Adam/Gabriel to run Newman-Abbott, a large corporate conglomerate. What experience does she have running a huge company? It's ridiculous.
I have a lot of viewer reaction to pass on to you.
CC from Etobicoke, Ontario has sent me some comments and opinions:
Is Marco dead or alive?
It appears that Marco is alive. A soap website spoiler says that Jack and Marco will join forces to seek revenge against Victor. Not only that, but the writers would want to capitalize on the dramatic effect of having the "two Jacks" meet.
I'm sure the real killer and motive will eventually be revealed. However, I hope they don't drag the murder mystery out too long. That's a mistake soaps tend to make. I realize that they have to keep the story going for awhile, but if it goes on too long, it loses its impact and viewers lose interest.
Regular viewer, Fifi from Collingwood, complains that Y&R has become overly rough and violent. She says there have been too many shootings and vicious attacks. It's just not as much fun as it used to be. There are not enough everyday life situations.
I tend to agree with Fifi. I would like to see some more laughter and lightheartedness on the the show. There is too much tenseness. I also think Y&R lacks real romance too. Where is the supercouple that viewers can cheer for? What couple has real magic? They are all deceiving each other and betraying each other. What couple is working together and struggling to overcome difficulties together?
Carly from Barrhaven, Ontario emailed me with this comment;
The writers have taken Victor to new heights now by shooting Jack in cold blood, although he thought he was shooting Marco.
I would also like to point out, Carly, that Victor was the one who brought a dangerous drug lord to Genoa City in the first place. He was the one who endangered his family. The writers are making Victor more evil than he used to be. He doesn't seem to have a conscience anymore.
Is there only two places for accommodation in Genoa City?
Seems there is a motel out on the highway out of town or Genoa City Athletic Club (GCAC).
How did Jack and Marissa stay at the Genoa City AA and not spotted by Marco, Victor
And any of the gang? Should of stayed at that motel out by the highway!
And Noah paying for new friend Marissa to stay at GCAC! What would The Donald think?
And how did Marissa know about Chelsea Lawton designs? I do not think these new writers are thinking story lines through. Ashley recovering from brain surgery in one day!
Abby being made Chief Operating Officer of Newman Abbott.
I know it is a soap opera but......
As of this writing, there are no new developments concerning the possibility of Billy Miller retruning to Y&R as Billy Abbott. I will keep you posted.
Jess Walton (Jill Foster Abbott Fenmore Atkinson) and Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) will return soon. Jess has tweeted "I'll be back in Genoa City soon." In early June, she and her husband attended a wedding in England.
According to Soap Central, "Tristan Rogers returns as Colin Atkinson on July 29 (CBS), July 28 (Global TV in Canada).
Let's just hope that the Y&R writers can provide Jill and Colin with a better storyline. They deserve better than what they have had to work with. That ridiculous music box storyline did not go over well, to say the least.
Below is a photo of Jess Walton at the River Cam in Cambridge, England.

Sofia Pernas, who portrays the mysterious Marissa, has an interesting background. She was born in Fes, Morocco on July 31, 1989 to a Moroccan mother and a Galician father. Galicia is in northwestern Spain, so that accounts for her Hispanic appearance.
Sofia eventually settled in Los Angeles and began a modelling career. I wondered whether her accent was fake but I guess it's authentic, given her background.
Speaking of Marissa, would you like to see her with Noah? He's still grieving over the loss of Courtney. Will Marissa spell trouble for him?
