Why do I feel like Morrow is being even more insensitive than usual there?

OTOH, perhaps Victoria will die (yeah, right) and Nick will be so distraught that he develops a split personality in order to keep his sister "alive."

Is it just me or does Victoria resemble Patty here?

I knew Gen would sex him up. I'm so tired of Nikki 2.0.

I'm actually starting to really like Genevieve. I've always liked her, but she's actually starting to gel well with the rest of the cast. She's the perfect outcast type. She knows how to play the game, and it's nice to see a woman that strong.

I wanted to like this quad but I can't. This whole thing is BS even Jack and Nikki.

Poor Genie. That dress was awful. And I think she and Braeden have chemistry but the whole story just doesn't work for me.

Until I find work and the weather is consistently good in Chicago, I will spend the YR hour doing yoga and will only catch the last segment and the preview. I just can't anymore. I just cant!

I'm not sure if being too stupid to know how to run a company and then whoring herself out to Victor because her feelings are hurt is strong.

Genie Francis acting like a middle-aged version of her 1977 self does not help.

Yeah there's nothing strong about this character and there never was. She's been a weak woman since the start always blaming Colin for everything including the rain. And GF's acting is terrible, she still doesn't fit in

I'm actually embarrassed for Genie. I know they've morphed the character like a zillion times, but even the warmth she had as Laura is not translating on screen on Y&R. Just another indicator how vapid, empty, and cold the show has become and highlights like any other mediocre actor she needs good writing.

I disagree. I like Genie's Genevieve now and I hated her when she first came on and mauled Colin's face. I do think she is strong-but-vulnerable. She's had some knocks but she's pulled herself back up. She landed the prize that everybody seemingly wants (BoN) and has played that power game perfectly. So now she's Victor's chewtoy but that was bound to happen because on this Y&R, Victor Must Win at All Costs. She was bound to kneel eventually -- everybody else has.

And Victor/GeneV/Jack/Nikki is a damn sight more entertaining than any other story on the show, with the possible exception of Adam and Chelsea, even though it is sooo contrived. Everything else is so boring.

Also: did Black Widow drop out of The Avengers? Is there an audition for Wizard of Oz and the Wicked Witch of the West that I don't know about? Because Phyllis in that black cape... good grief. She looked like a bat.

She's not just Victor's chewtoy - she is with him solely because Jack rejected her. Her entire story is about degrading herself for men.

I think she's had her eye on Victor for some time. Yes, Jack rejected her and she's hurt, but she knew that waving BoN in his face was no way to get his undying love. Jack only likes women who are subservient to him so that he can play hero.

She went to Victor's room and came on to him (well, they came on to each other). I think she is done with Jack to be honest. Her eye is on the prize -- running BoN and having Victor as her big-money protector. Not saying this is some big feminist move, because it isn't. It is what it is. Does GeneV have self-esteem issues? Sure. And BON is the only thing that makes her feel powerful and worthy. Without it, nobody would give her the time of day in GC. She knows it and we the audience know it. Doesn't mean I'm not enjoying the way this character has played all the men on this show in a business context and still ends up with a job at BoN. Good for her. This Victor thing is an added extra for her and I like how she is playing all this for what it is (she was lonely and needed to lick her wounds) and not how Victor is the man of her dreams.

I guess I can't see how this is different from the million other stories where women are whored out to men on this show. But if I wasn't so horrified by Genie Francis I might be able to see it in a more unbiased way, so that's on me.

It's not just you Carl. Genie is a bootleg Nikki in this story and acting very pathetic because she can't have Jack. There's nothnig strong about her and they need to just cut their losses. She doesn't have her eye on any powerful business.

It's not just you. I actually like Genie Francis never thought she was any great talent but she had a certain spark and warmth on screen. Even in her recent visits to GH as bad as the writing, she still had something. Now I just can't see it. The character's awful but I think so much has to so with Y&R these days as the show is so ice cold and empty. It amazes to me that I actually warmed up to Avery because most of the new characters on this show are cringeworthy. I do think she has far better chemistry with Braden than anyone else she's been tied to but I'm not sure in the long run that matters.

Tucker with those dark glasses in Crimson playing secret spy with Sophia was too funny. Nice to see Reed again, that boy is too cute. Victoria saying she can't stay mad at Victor? What BS! She needs to hold a grudge for awhile this time around.
