On The Young and the Restless, the episode is features Nick and Summer played by Joshua Morrow and Hunter King in scenes that depict the hardest of all human encounters: the long, bittersweet goodbye. Meanwhile in Genoa City Lily has overcome cancer, a dead husband and a 6 month prison sentence for manslaughter as she giggles about Ashland Locke’s condition. At the Abbott mansion, as Harrison has moved in with Tara, is finally introduced the fabulous Aunt Traci and Aunt Ashley while Billy and Jack round out the scene for a full-Abbott celebration.
On The Bold and The Beautiful, Ridge deduces that Justin Barber must be lying about Thomas because of the ‘Eye On Fashion’ related “he left his phone here on business” excuse. Ridge, citing how young people do not make a move without personal cell phones asserts to Justin, “He wouldn’t have made it to the elevator” much less “take a business trip” without his cell phone. Liam is making a better case for himself than Justin is, yet all he is getting as a reward is a trip from L.A. County Jail to the Maximum Security system, whatever that means to Detective Baker, the Chief of the L.A. police department.
In Genoa City, it looks like Ben Rayburn has returned and it does not look normal. He is already stalking Abby by staring at her through private spaces and asking her on dates when she is expecting a child through surrogate Mariah while she waits for her heroic husband Phillip “Chance” Chancellor IV. I see a creepy toxic male stalker storyline, as predictable as that would be, upon the show.
In Los Angeles, we learn that you don’t keep all your secrets with one person, especially if that person is also your personal lawyer. Problem is we see is if that personal lawyer doesn’t respect you, you life will end. Negativity pervades The Bold and the Beautiful’s Los Angeles! Lesson: if you own a family company business, make sure your lawyer is well compensated. Though, Eric Forrester learned that lesson and he got wildly embarrassed anyway. Well, at least he and Ridge are not in the L.A. County Jail, probably not as comfortable as Bel Air and Spencer Manor’s views.
On the Bold and the Beautiful, Paris Buckingham showed that though she may be fantastic as a new worker at the Forrester Foundation®, her social skills consist of voyeurism, gossip and blind confused manipulation.
On The Young and the Restless, Sally Spectra has elevated herself into a level of manipulative evil not seen on the show since the Anicelli family.
