#yr, s34e204, ‘Encounter In The Park With Harrison’ / #bb, s34e203, ‘Mourning The End Of My Marriage’

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?

‘Irresistible (Go)’

The most difficult task of writing for a daytime drama seem as though they are twofold:

  1. 90% of the characters are protagonist good people for whom the viewer roots;
  2. No foul language allowed.

Take this episode, for example. Every character is a truly good person. That’s tough to write for, but in 2020, who needs another antagonistic ‘heavy’? Who would not want to be a member of the Spencer, Forrester or Logan families, where each character, Quinn included, is supportive of others?
