‘I’ve Heard Your Theory Before’ | #yr, s48e206 | CBS/Paramount+ daytime drama genre notes

Looking at this show is like looking at a bunch of rolling stones.

Multiple sclerosis, heart disease, cancer, being shot at, being poisoned, being run out of a Los Angeles A+ fashion house, losing one’s father as a 12 year old, growing up an orphan, being stabbed are all things that have happened to one of the characters that appears today.

I always have a check mark for people that have encountered death especially at a savagely young age in an exceptionally cruel way.

Today’s episode 206 in season 48, was too well written to comment on beyond that. This episode showed an exceptional effort by the writers which appeared to bounce off the actors who are veterans and accustomed to theme and variation on change using characters that have been built over four decades.

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.

Notes From The Bold and Beautiful, The Young and the Restless, July 5 and 6, 2021

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.

#bb-s34e192, ‘It Kills Me To Tell You This’ | #yr-s48e193, ‘Why Is My Forgiveness Important To You?’ | July 2, 2021

The Young and the Restless on Friday featured Ben “Stitch” Rayburn, M.D. and his ability to shadow-box Victor Newman while holding a porcelein mug full of black coffee without spilling a single drop. Also Kyle told Tara in subtle understatement that the finding out that he was Harrison’s biological father was a “real game-changer.” Sally and Jack have one drink at Society that turns onto the two “exhausting all topics that humans can talk about.”

On the 7-2-21, Bold and the Beautiful, we get a look inside what happens when people become intermeddlers. They think that the pain of what they believe is the truth in the short-run justifies eavesesdropping on (often through closed prvate doors with ears-to-the-door, walking into the offices of (often unannounced) the CEO of a company you have worked at for 6 months. That would be Paric and Brooke, the morality police doing it all for their “good friend” Eric and “loving sister” Zoe. Carter’s “I lied” on Friday has to be a record for admitting what he did in front of every important person he knows in Los Angeles and in front of the people who will decide whether he will continue on as in-house counsel, Chief Operatings Officer at Forrester.
