Jason Thompson’s performance as Billy Abbott IV entertains yet makes one think. True excellence won the daytime drama for Best Actor in a Daytime Drama for Mr. Thompson. I would not be the least bit surprised if that award is repeated.

Victor and Lily, meanwhile, take law enforcement into their own hands.

In a scene that will never be forgotten, Michael tries to get Billy to settle on a felony issue which must be seen to be believed.

My compliments to the writers and actors for keeping the program going through the virus pandemic. It is loved, appreciated and fun to watch. #YR is just as fun to compare what one thought of how an issue was handled with loved ones. Even my dad has become a huge dan especially of Victor Newman.

Meanwhile, Detective Rey Rosales, land of Genoa City now familiar to his travels, has full confidence in his assertions. Is he making an assumption that he will not be able to prove? Is it Rey’s assumption to prove or is truth and justice a matter for the District Attorney, GC’s new ‘silver-haired fox’ Michael Baldwin, Esq.?

From Los Angeles, Sally Spectra makes her move to Wisconsin as she boldly and loudly tells Billy and Lily how important she was as the Californian ran her own designer company.

The sweetest part of the episode is when Kyle introduces Summer to a movie she has never seen before as Jack mentions the great Edith Head. Edith Head (October 28, 1897 – October 24, 1981) was an American costume designer who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design between 1949 and 1973. Born and raised in California, Head started her career as a Spanish teacher, but was interested in design. She is known, in part, for her blue tinted glasses. According to my search, “Those dark blue-tinted glasses, which became a Head trademark, were originally worn because they let her understand how clothes would look in black and white. But even after the advent of color films, she adhered to the look. They kept her thoughts a secret.”
