Y&R Report (April 6, 2024): The Latest on The Young and the Restless

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.

Hi fans, 

Don't you think the Jordan storyline is getting ridiculous?  Is that woman a premier escape artist, another Harry Houdini?  There's no way that she could have gotten away from tight hospital security and the police.  She is a murderer and an arsonist.  Genoa City police would never  have allowed her to escape.  Jordan's latest stunt is to disguise herself as a man.  When will this end?  I don't expect reality on a soap, but the writers should not insult the intelligence of viewers.  

I'm looking forward to the 40th anniversary party to mark the first of Victor and Nikki's many weddings.  It should be quite an event, and very entertaining.  Obviously, Jordan is going to disrupt the festivities.  Her reign of terror should end there.  The Newman anniversary party should be the wicked woman's last stand.

After his disaster of a marriage with Ashley Abbott, Tucker McCall thinks he ready to enter into matrimony again, this time with Audra Charles.  Tucker is not good husband material, and Audra is not exactly eager to marry him.   At least she had the presence of mind not to immediately accept his proposal.  Frankly, I don't understand what she sees in that guy,  She'd be better off with Nate.  Nate doesn't have that great a record in the romance department either.  He really hurt Elena, who is nowhere to be seen these days, not even in hospital scenes.  However, he would still be far better for Audra than Tucker.  

I wonder if the writers are thinking about Lily Winters hooking up with Nick Newman, especially since Nick has broken up with Sally and Lily with Daniel. They had a long scene together.  If this happens more often, it will be a sign of things to come.  However, I still feel that Nick and Sharon will eventually find their way back to each other.  Speaking of Sharon, she hasn't had much screen time lately, and she doesn't really have a storyline.  After her dream episode, it seemed as if she was ready to be front and centre.  We seldom see her now.  If we do, all she does is speak with people about their problems.

The writers don't seem to know what to do with Phyllis ether.  They have her pulling childish pranks such as pulling fire alarms.  By the way, shouldn't she have been arrested for public mischief.  She got away scot-free.


Christel Khalil reveals name of her baby

Christel Khalil

Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) has been very private about disclosing information about her new baby son  with longtime partner Sam Restagno.  However, in a March 19th Instagram video, she finally revealed the child's name.  In the video, she showed the baby's nursery, decorated in blue.  She wrote "Nursery reveal!  So in love with the peaceful vibes for our baby Remy thanks to @babyletto."

Vail Bloom (Heather Stevens)

Lily has fired both Daniel and Heather.  She is hurt by Daniel's betrayal and doesn't want to be reminded of it every day at work.  Is she being fair, though?  Is her personal life interfering with the business of Chancellor-Winters?  Is it clouding her judgement?  On the other hand, does Lily have a point when she contends that the presence of Daniel and Heather is too distracting for her to do her job properly?  

Since Heather is a lawyer, she should be able to find another legal position.  It won't be as easy for Daniel.  That gaming platform, MegaSphere, is his baby.  He designed it.  He has the most knowledge of it, and he is the ideal person to run it.  The best solution would be to keep Daniel, but let Heather go.  What do you think, fans?  Respond to the poll below and let me know.
