The Chloe storyline is drawing to its inevitable tragic conclusion. Although after her talk with Kevin at the movie theatre, it appears that she will go quietly to the Fairview mental hospital, it will not be that easy. One viewer, Fifi from Collingwood, Ontario, thinks that Chloe will discover that Victoria is pregnant. She will assume that Billy is the father (we don't know yet) and go berserk. She may harm Victoria or cause her to have a miscarriage. Well, Fifi, we'll see if your theory is correct.
Princess Victoria Newman is in a dire crisis. Her friendly doctor is there to help or hinder her (depending on your point of view). The enigmatic Dr. Ben Rayburn is always ready to offer medical advice and a shoulder to cry on. What is Dr. Stitch'em Up's deep, dark secret, though? Kelly knows and she claims that he "killed" a man. Was it in cold blood? Was it in self-defence? Was it accidental? Was it intentional? Was it medical malpractice? We will soon find out . . . I hope.
How did you like that big romantic scene between Cricket and Paul? Paul seems as clueless about romance as he is about police work. The Cricketmeister had the candles and music out and she wanted some attention. The Genoa City police chief was completely oblivious. All he could do was blather on and on about Ian Ward and Dylan and Victor. I must say, he seems more attentive to Nikki than his own wife. Whenever Nikki calls, he always drops his highly questionable police work and goes running to her side.
What's the deal, Neil? Are you going to sacrifice everything for the sake of Hillary? I wonder, though, is Hillary trustworthy or does she have an agenda. Are her feelings for Neil sincere? Has this leopard changed her spots? It seems she's also harbouring an attraction for Devon. If he expresses his true feelings for her, will she be able to resist? I don't think so. What do you think, fans?

Since Gina is scheduled to be seen on the show this summer, we know that it won't be too long before Phyllis comes out of her coma. That means big trouble for Sharon and for Kelly. As for Jack, he is going to be caught between Phyllis and Kelly. Will he remain loyal to Phyllis or stick with Kelly?
The firing of David Tom is not entirely surprising. Fan reaction to him has not been positive at all. He's really just started in the role of Billy and hasn't had the opportunity to grow into it. Certainly Billy Miller is a far better actor and had much better chemistry with Amelia Heinle (Victoria). David Tom, unfortunately for him, has been constantly compared to Miller and that has been a lot to live up to. Tom never really had a chance. Disappointed Billy Miller fans have been quite hard on him.
What does David Tom's firing mean for the show? Well, apparently, the character of Billy is being taken in a new direction . . .whatever that means. Anyway, good luck to Burgess Jenkins. I hope his tenure as Billy Abbott is longer and more successful than David Tom's.
Nikki: Victor, you can't take the law into your own hands.
Victor: I wouldn't have to if Paul Williams did his job.
Billy's comment on the sparring match between Stitch and Victor in the gym:
"I'm hoping for a double knockout."
