This is the first year he will be spending the holidays without his mother, Dina Mergeron.

#YR
season 48
episode 62

Jordi Vilasuso and Courney Hope are finding themselves comfortable playing Detective Rey Rosales and Sally Spectra, respectively. Michael Mealor and Hunter King as Kyle Abbott and Summer Newman continue to be movie stars on a daytime drama. In short, they #YR company of players has never been more solid while being diverse naturally.

In regard to the loathsome nature of Adam, Chloe has a reaction to finding out that her friend Chelsea reacts with disgust telling her husband and father to Miles Michael Fisher, Kevin Fisher, “I can’t believe she’s thinking of reuniting with the monster. Victoria later tells Adam that he is a pathological liar who is toxic to everyone.” Meanwhile Aunt Tracy is “the nice one.”

‘Caffeine and Stress (Born Into Money)’

Meanwhile the Abbotts fight influencer/ling lost family member Theo Vanderway over the assets of Dina Mergeron’s will. As the Abbott family lawyer, Richard Amberson, Esq,  rightly said, “It’s better to settle things out of court if possible.” Theo points out to Jack, “You can’t possibly need any more money.”

Jack seems unimpressed with Theo calling him “Just another self-absorbed opportunist with an overdeveloped sense of self-entitlement.” Harsh words, especially from that of a Jack.

The week before the Abby-Chance wedding, the Young and the Restless featured a Thanksgiving where most of the inner family tensions were alluded to.

Between Jack and Billy, without a job Jack is concerned about Billy’s place in the world and a temptation to gamble.

Between Nate and Devon, Elena, Lily, Amanda and Lola have place their concerns.

Regarding the healing of Sharon, Nick, Faith and Mariah try their best to reinvent life as normal, meaning, life before and after Sharon’s dealing and beating the most evil disease on earth.

Kyle and Summer are in love thus confused by infatuation definition.

Nikki and Victor are the duke and duchess of Genoa City and had a fine Thanksgiving with their only issue being that of Adam’s involuntary stay at a psychiatric home in order he finally deal with his childhood trauma that has been holding back his potential for kindness in his good works.

Rey Rosales and Phyllis Summers, each content with partners Sharon and Nick respectively, round out members of non-married Genoa City society as key characters in their own right yet *also* key in weaving together the tapestry of storylines necessary for the daily one-hour daytime serial drama that the Young and the Restless is, on this 48th episode of the 48th year of the fantastic ‘mirror to American society’ that the program has become.

In 500 years when people want to know how people lived in 2021, they won’t be looking at the marching around the election. They will be looking at the art created with plots about ordinary people living ordinary lives.

 

The plot in Genoa City today on the problems of the haves and the wishes they did.

Theo Vanderway, long lost relative to Dina Abbott Mergeron, is bitter that he has been all but shunned from her will while his already rich Abbott cousins seem to take their wealth for granted.

This begrudging jealousy is puzzling.  Theo, though left out of one Abbott will feels bad, is still welcome in the family, and moreover there are plenty of opportunities which the Abbotts have all but handed him.

His talent?  He is a professional “influencer,” which means he tells you what your taste in arts and entertainment ought to be.  You’d think someone with such a job that requires criticism and judgment for everything would have thicker skin than he is showing.
