The December 15 episode of the Young and the Restless uses brilliant elements of the films Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, It’s a Wonderful Life and The Wizard of Oz.

#YR
season 48
episode 61

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.

 

Episode 57 of season 48 of The Young and The Restless features the universal threat of the small unruptured brain aneurysm.

#YR season 48, episode 57

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.

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.

Today’s episode revolved around the strength of the women of Genoa City and Nina and Jill from even beyond Genoa City being those who were taking firm control of their families.

Every woman – Phyllis, Chelsea, Chloe, Victoria, Nina, Jill, Abby and Amanda displayed an almost supernatural human strength on the episode and in the town in Wisconsin today, a strength called “being a woman.”
