I also enjoyed watching how Abby and Summer burnt the turkey and almost caused a fire. Only the pies were fit to eat. It was quite amusing to see Jack take such delight in devouring Victor's favourite pie. That may have been the only time Jack put one over on Victor.
Nick is just as hypocritical and self-righteous as his parents, Nikki and Victor. Although Dylan and Nick are both sons of Nikki, Nick was raised by the Newmans and Dylan was raised by his adoptive parents. That must be the difference. That must be why Dylan, though not flawless, has more integrity than his bull-headed brother. Sharon's fortunate he hasn't left her, at least not yet. He will be out of the picture before 2016 comes to an end. As I've mentioned before, Steve Burton, who portrays the character, did not renew his contract and will be be leaving Y&R. So, Dylan's fate hangs in the balance. He may leave town leaving the door open for his return, with another actor playing the part. Perhaps he'll hook up with Avery again, although that would be a mistake because she didn't treat him very well. Once he's gone, where will that leave Sharon? Will she try to mend fences with Nick? Will she battle Chelsea for Nick's affections?
Well, fans, I am very pleased that Sally Sussman is taking over the reigns as head writer at The Young and the Restless. I'm glad that she intends to focus on the core characters and their relationships. We've had enough explosions and baby snatching. Thank goodness Sussman wants to move away from that! You will undoubtedly notice a change in direction on the first episode with Sussman as head writer - Wednesday, December 7 (CBS), Tuesday, December 6 (Global TV in Canada). There will be a traditional Abbott breakfast.
By the way, don't expect the character of Adam to resurface anytime soon. In an an interview with TV Insider, Sally Sussman said that she is "not looking to bring the character back," nor is she planning to make a big issue of Christian's real paternity, at least right now. "I don't see that we need it," she declared. "Nick believes this baby is his and for all intents and purposes, it is." She added that when and if an Adam shows up, "then we'll deal with it."
In her interview with TV Insider, Sussman also revealed that "Jill is going to experience a serious personal crisis that will cause her to reevaluate her entire life." I can only speculate what that might be. Perhaps she'll have a close brush with death. Maybe her crisis will have something to to with Colin. Hmmm . . .
Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) is set to return to Y&R again
Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) has been very busy lately developing products for Jabot. She's been single and unattached for quite a while now. Fans, whom do think would be a good match for her? Now that Abby and Dr. Stitch have broken up, should she rekindle a romance with him.
There doesn't seem to be any suitable guys for Ashley on Y&R right now. She and Dr. Neville would have made a good match. It's too bad he was written out of the show before a romance could develop. Maybe Sally Sussman will bring Neville back, although that seems unlikely to happen.
