#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.

Thanks to the idea of putting Best Couples Advice in a beautiful glass box, Chance and Abby are able to make the best of what’s around as Chance is getting stronger every day.

This Is Us

From Los Angeles, Sally Spectra makes her move to Wisconsin as she boldly and loudly tells Billy and Lily how important she was as the Californian ran her own designer company.

The sweetest part of the episode is when Kyle introduces Summer to a movie she has never seen before as Jack mentions the great Edith Head. Edith Head (October 28, 1897 – October 24, 1981) was an American costume designer who won a record eight Academy Awards for Best Costume Design between 1949 and 1973. Born and raised in California, Head started her career as a Spanish teacher, but was interested in design. She is known, in part, for her blue tinted glasses. According to my search, “Those dark blue-tinted glasses, which became a Head trademark, were originally worn because they let her understand how clothes would look in black and white. But even after the advent of color films, she adhered to the look. They kept her thoughts a secret.”

Cary Grant and Irene Dunne

In the second part of the gorgeous wedding at the Chancellor manor, the Newman, the Abbots and the Chancellors share memories that could make a grown man cry. The flashbacks in particular of parents and children of seasons past show that the Devon advice was probably the wisest, in saying that the memories Chance and Abby are making are more precious than any jewels.

The Wedding of Abby and Chance

The Abbott, the Newman, the Chancellors and the Winters families, the pillars of Genoa City, Wisconsin, come together in the  beautiful wedding ceremony of Abby Newman Abbott Chancellor and Phillip “Chance” Chancellor IV.

The Young and the Restless, 12-1-2020

Ceremony presided over by Devon Hamilton, a special singing performance by Traci Abbott and over 17 characters seen in flashbacks make for an episode with the excellence and fullness befitting the 12,000th episode of The Young and the Restless®.

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.
