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.

 

The Young and the Restless on episode 58 of the 48th season features an unexpectedly common honeymoon, which is refreshing from that of people who are generally known for staying at 5-star hotels only.

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.

When I was 12, I, like so many of you, already lost 3 close family members to battles with cancer.
Alyvia Alyn Lind, as Faith Newman, does a most wondrous job of showing exactly how it feels to have the weight of this disease hurts you while at the same time having the determination not to allow it to affect her life more than her mother, played by Sharon Case, would want.

The song “My Brave Face” by Paul McCartney was written as a reaction to the death of Paul’s wife Linda.  Linda also died of cancer and the emotions one goes through in trying to stop an invisible killer could only be turned into a silver-lining song by the best of songwriters and performers — as that of a Sir Paul.
