Tuesday’s #YR featured behavior from a returning Jeffrey Todd Hellstrom that has we returning fans quite confused.

On the Nick and Sharon and biological children front, their natural daughter Mariah decides to invite dad Nicholas for a surprise dinner “out of the blue.”

In English, the phrase out of the implies an idea or action that comes from a motivation especially unexpected or unrelated to the activities people.

Many people are under the mistaken idea that people who develop alcohol problems are the ones show crazy and silly behavior.

It is a more likely case that those who fall into alcohol problems are those people for home alcohol works very well on today’s Young and the restless Nikki Newman had a talk with her grandson Reed Hellström recognizing that a she once used alcohol to her advantage to help her career as a dancer, Reed Hellström is using alcohol to his advantage as a shy person.

He has his first love, his parents are divorcing, he is a sensitive musician, from a powerful family and suffers from shyness. Surprise: alcohol, in the short-term, handles every one of those symptoms perfectly. In the long run, the Chinese aphorism rules: “First the person takes the drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the person” – UNLESS one can have an empathetic wise grandmother, here played as usual to perfection by the fantastic Melody Thomas Scott with newcomer Tristan Lake Leabu as Reed.

The return of Thad Luckinbill as Jeffrey Todd (J.T.) Hellstrom has been a spark for the storyline. This American actor is *far* more experienced, believable, likable yet powerful as compared to when he left the show to take other roles. He’ll leave again, return again. The timing? Who knows?! That is the beauty of a DAILY daytime drama.

Today the show was down-to-earth.  “The alcoholic is *not* someone who cannot control their drinking – the alcoholic is someone who *must* control their drinking.” – STANLEY GITLOW, M.D., addiction expert

On The Young and The Restless on Wednesday, December 27, 2017, Nick and Chelsea have a discussion much paralleled by the song “If Makes You Happy.”

At this point in their relationship, as Eddie Arnold in the Green Acres tv show, Nick is more interested in building a house on the outskirts of Genoa City. As Zsa Zsa Gabor, Chelsea is more interested in staying in the city penthouse to which she has grown comfortable and built memories.
