  1. Yes they were revelations because NO ONE (besides Katherine) could prove otherwise. So for Katherine to admit that the crux of their entire relationship was based on the fact that she was ALL the things Jill accused her of being over the years & that Jill richly deserved her spot as GC's Incumbent Matriarch should've been a HUGE game changer but Y&R ruined it (as they have with most things over the past 15 years).
  2. It was during that insane period where Victor married FOUR times in the span of a year and a half. That time period also included Sharon burning down the ranch, Genie Francis humping Jack, Abby running over Tucker, and Skye falling into volcanoes! The whole crux of Katherine & Jill's relationship was Katherine insisting Jill seduced Phillip. For Katherine to acknowledge Phillip's feelings were legitimate and that she treated Jill poorly out of spite was a revelation for anyone who with any real idea of the storied history between the two characters. Yet the entire story was dropped due to Y&R's insistence on pairing Jill & Colin and Jeanne's ongoing health issues.
  3. I don't know why anyone was surprised. Lane fans acted the same way towards Davetta. The only difference is that Khalil herself was personally involved back then vs. later on with Redaric. Y&R dropped Victor & Devon's friendship altogether once Neil & Dru became his foster parents. You're right that they had a nice little bond which the writers SHOULD'VE continued but didn't (and you know exactly why they didn't).
  4. Y&R should have Devon buy the Rec center.
  5. It's not racism if it's not concrete!
  6. Katherine admitted that Phillip loved and wanted to be with Jill (which was what their whole feud was based around) in a throwaway conversation a few years ago. But Y&R totally dropped any fallout from Katherine's confession which should've been a fundamental life changing moment for two legendary characters (especially Jill).
  7. The Music Box debacle was unnecessary because Kay & Jill's relationship had already been resolved prior to Jeanne's death.
  8. Jack's womanizing (stemming from his deep mommy issues) was a crucial aspect of the character from the beginning. Dina was a HUGE part of Jack's life (especially because he was her favorite). Bell ignored all of the characters established history when they hired PB and made John Jack's sole inspiration.
  9. RIP Chuck Berry

      I thought he'd passed a few years ago. The true legend.

  10. Jack & Patty were very much like JT & Colleen
  11. +1.
  12. Jack & Gloria are GROSS.
  13. +1. The only problem is that her stories are really shallow. The concepts themselves are solid but she never takes the time to invest in the characters to get them creating story as she does in inventing random issues for them to deal with. Her usual thing is to give characters an arc over a couple of weeks with a random history mention and/or set of flashbacks only to then drop that story (instead of seeing it to a proper conclusion) by spinning off the characters involved into a side story.
  14. It's a bigger than just patriarchal storytelling for Y&R (although that remains very problematic). The biggest issue is the Newmans taking over. The Newmans have been Y&R's primary family for years but the show's over reliance on them has become more prevalent now because the rest of Y&R's core families have been decimated.
  15. Finn brought a lot of the backlash onto himself. Had he left well enough alone the drama would've passed a lot quicker.
  16. You would think an international corporation would provide security for a 'veteran' model, but no....
  17. Four. Abby being a newborn, she had just gotten settled with her ideal family, the complications of Brad bonding with Colleen and the potential of lingering feelings between Traci & Brad all contributed to her discomfort. Larry is really sweet. He made a ton of mistakes but he made a genuine effort (with a big assist from The Newmans) to turn his life around.
  18. This was during the period where Sharon developed kleptomania & eventually decided to commit herself (leading to the baby switch from hell).
  19. They had sex more than once.
  20. Exactly. But the insane Chloe propping started even earlier than that. Clementine spent the better part of a year literally just standing around as Chloe insulted Mackenzie & throwing tantrums over the close relationships Mackenzie had with several of the younger male characters on the canvas at the time. Oh I agree about it mainly being done to prop St. Giggly but the aftermath of the S/B affair also had Y&R positioning Chloe as the wronged wife which was almost as bad.
