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.
If there is anything that qualifies as good family karma, it is when your family is a major hospital philanthropist, then a neurosurgeon saves a life in your family.
Such is the case with the Forresters, as the life of Thomas was saved through the physicians and surgeons made available only through donation.
In that light, this episode features Paris Buckingham, the sister of Zoe Buckingham, yet unrelated to the Fleetwood mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham (just seeing if anyone’s reading!) telling the new C.O.O. of Forester, Mr Carter Walton.
Charlie makes a fantastic walk on appearance not only returning a full mannequin but telling us what a “10-22” means in Forrester Creations code. (a raccoon in the losses in the parking lot)
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.
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®.
Greg Rikaart is the actor who plays character Kevin Fisher who electing on what parenting especially a male child might be like gives off a fantastic portrayal of the man always separated from the father, just as in Like A Salesman, Wall Street or the Young and the f-ing Restless!

Having as his brother, Genoa City District Attorney Michael Baldwin raised by a man only known to me, who began watching #YR in 2006, as “Terrible Tom.” Of the thing Terrible Tom is most known for is sadistically locking young son Kevin in closets, and using one’s imagination, if a father would do that, what would they not do? Upon reflecting on the fact that in a few weeks Kevin is going to be a father himself, the actor Rikaart, with time off to reflect after deciding that having lived most his life on the Young and the Restless it was time to attend to his own family, and probably not look back. Rikaart had several guest weeks in returning to different rounds of actors, and while people came and went, Kevin and Greg are stronger than ever.
What happens when you work that well with others? You get the lines of the year – like this, “I wasn’t raised by a good man, I wasn’t raised to be a good man, what makes me think I can handle this?” Without the experience of that of Greg and his return, the great show today has no tone. Great move for all, Kevin coming back. Funny how he is a major character not aligned with any one of the major families in town, but when he took his child abuse and turned it into good, he joined the The Genoa City Police Department as its technical expert – his business turned into family, with a little help from Michael, Sharon, Paul and Lauren.
