The Young and the Restless season 48 episode 204 was bathed in the aftermath of a plot hatched by Tara Locke and Sally Spectra in order to manipulate Summer Newman and Kyle Jenkins Abbott. The actions and emotions regarding terminal illness while a child is involved sometimes requires keeping secrets, other times telling hard truths. For others, seeing a business titan with a terminal illness is a tawdry opportunity to get ahead in their family, take another’s company and getting into business to which they are not ethically a part. On a lighter note, we learned that Jack Abbott likes his coffee as I do — no milk, no foam, thank you anyway. Kyle is proving to be a great man, putting the needs of his child Harrison above those of himself. Jack Abbott and Diane Jenkins raised him well!

On The Bold and the Beautiful season 34 episode 203 the battle between lust and loyalty within the mind of characters gets highlighted by the relationship between Carter and Quinn. Quinn seems to be a decent person, and she does the moral thing, but she is unable to maintain a reputation of a reformed wild woman. A most odd action: that although Eric is so through with Quinn he had Carter take the Forrester matriarch painting from above the fireplace mantle (I had no idea before watching the #bb that Los Angeles had so many fireplaces) and told him to trash it. Carter knows what he ought to do to be safe, but as this page is not about spoilers, I most highly encourage anyone interested to watch this episode! By contrast, we see the legacy couple of Brooke and Ridge being photographed by the world famous Ellen. Was the cliffhanger left from Friday regarding how Ridge would react to the dramatic and bizarrely disloyal-to-Bill Justin offer?

The Bold and the Beautiful episode 181 made the room light up with talk about the old saying “it’s not what you wear, it’s where you wear it thus how you wear it,” a complement to the better known “it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.”

In this episode, we see the one of the wealthiest and most powerful men alive, Bill Spencer, Jr from prison. His clothes? The exact same scrubs as the angelic (for now) character John “Finn” Finnegan, with the only difference being the ‘L.A. County Jail’ stamps on the back of the shirts.

This happens in other places. Tuxedos! One can wear a tuxedo and receive the Academy Award for the Best Director of the Year. Also, tuxedos are often maitré de mandatory at diners that serve cheeseburgers and eggs. Golfing clothes are often seen on people serving community service as punishment for a D.U.I.

The tempo charts below are based on the song by the Beatles called Let It Be, which was also brought up in the television room after Bill Spencer outlashes at Wyatt in frustration about the actions of Liam. “God, I took care of everything – why couldn’t Liam just have let it be?”

As in the song “I Don’t Have The Heart” by James Ingram, Wyatt can be persuaded to love Sally, but Sally cannot force him to be in love with her with the depth she has for him and he has for Flo Fulton.

#YR family-company-business summary, 8/19/19

The thing about working in a family owned business that is most awkward is running into the old love.

The reason Kyle has been a successful character in the Young and the Restless is because of things he does at his own wedding: taking genuine time to express empathy to his cousin who turned out not to be his cousin ex-wife Summer Newman. Despite this being Kyle’s day of joy in holy matrimony with Lola Rodriguez Abbott, Kyle is concerned, especially “after all they went through” how Summer is taking the heartache.
