‘Do Childhood Wishes Ever Really Go Away?’ | #yr, s48e66 | December 23,2020
In episode 66, what continued to surprise me was Devon’s lack of concern for Nate Hasting’s hand.
Becoming a surgeon requires more study time than I can conceive of. My dad and sister are surgeons and socially challenged from spending ages 18-28 studying and working non-stop with virtually no time to socialize.
Devon, the 2.3 Billion Dollar [Man] has no remorse for ruining a career over punching someone that slept with a girlfriend, Elena Dawson, that he had for about 2 months.
I had always seen Devon as a kind empathetic man. How he has injured Nate and cares not is such a strange and interesting storyline that even though Nate is not in episode 66, seeing Devon trying to solve relatively preposterous problems with Amanda Sinclair, the identical twin of his ex-wife Hilary Curtis makes Devon look like Mr. Selfish (very unlike Devon – maybe he is still venting in sorrow over the tragedy of the death of his uncle, who raised Devon as a father despite Tucker McCall being his biological father, something Devon only learned after think for 25 years that his biological father was Neil’s brother fashion photographer Malcolm Winters).
This episode had comic relief from Rey and Sharon as she had a touching attempt at making Cuban tamales.
‘For the Attempted Murder of Phillip Chancellor’ | #YR, s48e52 | December 4, 2020
While Nina Webster stays in town an extra day after the wedding of her son, Christine Williams makes an interesting offer to either stay in Wisconsin or move to Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Detective Rey Rosales, land of Genoa City now familiar to his travels, has full confidence in his assertions. Is he making an assumption that he will not be able to prove? Is it Rey’s assumption to prove or is truth and justice a matter for the District Attorney, GC’s new ‘silver-haired fox’ Michael Baldwin, Esq.?
