Hey Y&R fans, every second Saturday TV Banter discusses the latest happenings and provides commentary on your favourite daytime drama. Note to U.S. readers - SPOILER ALERT: Here in Canada, I watch the show on Global TV which is one episode ahead of CBS. I will inevitably refer to incidents you haven't seen yet. Read at your own risk. If you are the curious type, though, you may prefer to discover some things in advance.
Nick also seems much more restrained than I thought he would be after learning of Chelsea's deception and Christians's paternity. I must say, I thought he would be a great deal more angry. However, he may really explode when he finds out that Victor knew that Adam was Christian's father. He's also going to be extremely upset and distraught if Victor gets custody of Connor and Christian.
Where Sharon and Nick are concerned, do I detect some jealousy on Phyllis' part? Does she still have feelings for Nick? I think she has some nerve trying to manipulate Sharon! After all, she played an integral part in the break-up of Nick and Sharon's marriage.
Chelsea phoned somebody who is helping her. Was it Jordan? He has a history of being her partner in crime. At any rate, she won't be on the lam much longer. I think that "Victor's people" will find her before the Genoa City police.
Victoria was stunned when J.T. became brutally honest with her. He told her that she is paranoid and insecure. That may be true, to a certain extent. There is no doubt that Ashley is a threat to Victoria's interests. Ashley has made it clear that she wants to be Victor's successor as CEO of Jabot, but does Victoria really have to stoop to underhanded schemes to remove Ashley as a threat. As Lily pointed out, the Princess was a better boss when Brass & Sassy was not a subsidiary of Newman Enterprises. As J.T. poclaimed, Victor and Ashley bring out the worst in Victoria.
BEST LINE OF THE WEEK:
Another regular viewer, Helen from Scarborough, is very unhappy with the Chelsea storyline. Helen says that it appears to have been put together hastily in order to accommodate Melissa Claire Egan's departure from the show. I tend to agree. I still can't buy the premise that Chelsea would suddenly revert to her old ways and become a con artist again. As for her claim that she needed the money to secure Connor and Christian's' future, are they not the grandsons of billionaire Victor Newman?
Y&R to celebrate 45th anniversary with appearances from past characters
Jaime Lyn Bauer (Lorie Brooks) - Lorie was Leslie's sister. She was a novelist and was very jealous of Leslie's success as a pianist.
Mackenzie had a romance with Billy Abbott and eventually married J.T. Hellsom. She and J.T. moved to Washington, D.C. and had two children. Now that Mackenzie and J.T. are getting a divorce, her return to Genoa City is very timely. She will undoubtedly lock horns with Victoria.
Kelly Kruger is one of four actresses who have played the role of Mackenzie Browning She portrayed Mackenzie from 2002 to 2003. Mackenzie was last played by Clementine Ford, from April 1, 2009 to November 5, 2010.
Michael Mealor to play the role of Kyle Abbott but will fans warm up to his character?
Since 2010, four actors have portrayed Kyle, but none was able to connect with viewers. The most recent being Australian Lachlan Buchanan, Lachlan played the character for a little more than a year. Kyle was then written out of the show. After breaking up with Summer, he went to work in New York.
