Y&R: SOD Fall Previews


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Thanks to Y&ROn&Off at SOC.

Maria Arena Bell says you can expect romance this fall, building to a remote in Paris and also a lot of psychological intrigue.

Victor and the Newmans: "In the aftermath of Sabrina's death, Victor is a man who's cut off and alone. Back home he's presumed dead." It's different than the other times he was presumed dead, this time there is very concrete evidence that he's dead. The family will be coping with that. Also what's different is Adam being there, & the will that was changed weeks prior to Sabrina's death.

Jack/Sharon/Nick/Phyllis: There's a lot more turmoil with the RS gang. Jack hopes that more explosive articles will give the magazine a boost, Nick and Phyllis are against that. Continued conflict for the 4.

Cane/Lily/Chloe: Bombshells and surprises in store for them. Secrets and lies are revealed; it's not what everyone expects it will be.

Daniel/Amber/Colleen: Daniel will emerge as an artist and will continue to be in a love triangle with his heart (which is with Amber) and Colleen who is is beginning to develop feelings for.

The Winters Family: After secrets are revealed by Tyra & Ana, their relationship with Devon is deepened. The family makes a sacrifice for Ana. The story will be about family.

Gloria/Jeffrey: When two black hearts fall in love, they love each other but do they trust each other? There will be a lot more of them scheming together and separately.

Michael/River: This will be an important story this fall. It will be Michael learning about himself by discovering who his father is; Michael will have surprises about who River is at heart; discovering part of his father in him.

Jill/Kay/Brad: There will be upset at Jabot. In the wake of Chow's death, a lot will be uncovered about who knew what and when they had knowledge of it. Who will emerge as the leader. The person who calms the waters at Jabot is not necessarily who one would expect.

My reactions:

a. I cannot stand another Victor-presumed-dead episode, even if it is consistent with several of his past stories. When will this family learn?

b. I'm very over Restless Style. The sole time Jack was interesting was when he was trying to get Jabot lately. And Nick is continually emasculated by his suppression by Jack and Victor. Nick has really suffered in the post-LML era. She was the only one who wrote him as a man of strength and sincerity. He admitted his cheating, left his marriage after a good try, was a good son to his dad during the epilepsy...etc. All this has been lost now, in the Restless Style era.

c. Cane/Lily...ugh...this show doesn't understand what is not working.

d. Daniel/Lily...ugh...this show insists on another hopeless thing. All the energy is Daniel-Amber. If he needs to dally, it needs to be an INTERESTING character and actress.

e. Jury is out on River, for me

f. Does this mean Ana is NOT going to New England?

g. Gloria and Jeffrey's counter-plotting is tedious.

h. I continue to assume that it will be Billy who ends up on top at Jabot. With Jack's support. With Jack pulling the puppet strings.

So I assume Eric Braeden will take a vacation, and the Paris remote will be a reuniting of the family? Of course, it will be an unhappy reunion, because Nick/Victoria will have to PAY for how rotten they have been to Adam.

Some spoilers say that Victor will come back and blast Adam for how he behaved while he was gone, and that Nick and Victoria will be happy. IF this happens, I'll be very unhappy.

And yes, the triangle between Daniel/Amber/Colleen is just so bad. Never mind the actors/actresses, Daniel and Colleen just don't fit. And it isn't that interesting.

Even Traci and Danny weren't interesting. Danny was a "mercy" husband for Traci...she adored him as a fan...when she got pregnant with Dr. Tim, he married her to give the child a name (even though he really loved Patty at the time). There was never real passion in that marriage...so they just parted friends (and occasional duet partners).

The inter-generational boredom continues.

Now, if Danny hooked up with an edgy chic...THAT Amber would get nervous about.

I want this to cause Amber to turn her sights to Nick Newman. Because that...well...could blow my TV off the stand! In a good way! (Evil Phyllis, here we come).

Sounds all rather blah.

And if the Paris remote ends up as another ploy to boost up Braeden's ego (like it was prupose of the Sabrina story until they killed her off) I'm gonna scream.

Colleen in a story. More Cane/Lily. Etc. pp. Except for the Jabot stuff it really sound very low-key.

Got this from Toni site

Here is another spoiler for next week re Lily/Cane/Chloe. According to SOW Cane and Chloe get married next week at city hall but we don't see the ceremony. Just as the ceremony is about to start Cane has a flashback to telling Lily he loves her. Then the scene ends. But later we learn they did go through with the wedding. The actor who portrays Cane said he was glad the actual wedding happened off screen because given the circumstances of the marriage it was better not to show Cane and Chloe reciting their vows and it would be easier for Lily/Cane fans to deal with who he said are up in arms about this turn of events.

I just don't believe they was that big of a deal. I'm talking about Lame.

    • I think I've heard of this before but I'd definitely like to know more, lol. Probably in the Classic thread if that's preferred by people. I've never been big on Cari Shayne's Karen. But yes, Carrie and Christie Clark have always had me. Like Kimberly as Robin on GH or Erin Torpey on OLTL, there is a core of lived experience with the actor evolving from child to adult and a quiet intelligence in their presence there that makes the character rise above any poor writing IMO.
    • I hear what your saying regarding Carrie Brady's place on the canvas. There is no arguing that. As I think I was saying poorly above, Karen was introduced during a transition period very early in Riche's run (as was Jagger). There were a lot of things that happened during that period that feel very against the soap opera grain. For example, David Langdon, Monica's ex and Dawn's father, arrives in Port Charles in a medical story where Monica inserts herself with the intention of telling David that Dawn was their daughter. David dies suddenly and Monica never reveals this information to David. This feels very untraditional. Similarly, the whole Joseph Adkins arc with Bobbie writing to a murderer and the women of Port Charles all fawning over his book is not something I felt was the type of story soaps in 1992 did. Similarly, introducing a character like Karen without any family ties and anchoring a younger part of the story with another outsider Jagger wasn't how things would typically work (effectively) on the soap.   I think my issue with the idea that Brenda had a direct goal is that is all there was to her. She had nothing to her outside of that in early 1993. Jagger had wanting to find his family. Karen was working to get into medical school. Brenda had Jagger, who only wanted her when he couldn't have Karen. Even Ruby called Jagger out on this. Brenda's point of view was so limited. The fact that she nearly gets bested by Jenny Eckert of all people in a confrontation in March, 1993, is pretty wild given how milquetoast Jenny is.  I can see why you would think Karen was taking a middle of the road approach to things. It might not have been presented well, but her pursuing her career and going to college was going to come first. Working at Kelly's and maintaining her grades was going to come before her romance with Jagger. With Rhonda around, meddling in her life, Karen definitely had more reason to be conflicted. Rhonda saw Karen's relationship with Jason as the key to Karen's success, both by marrying into a wealthy family and by building a network of connections in Karen's career field.  Having watched some of her "General Hospital" run, I would like to at the early years of Karen's run on "Port Charles" to see how that all this continues in terms of her characterization. I think Karen remains very passive romantically deferring to Courtney Kanelos, who was just a much stronger adversary for Karen than Brenda was based on where Brenda was in her journey given that Courtney had Neil which tied her to the entire Scanlon clan. I do remember Karen having some outbursts, but I vaguely think that Shayne's Karen could also be pushed to her limits and she would fire back. This just wasn't her modus operandi as it was for characters like Courtney and early Brenda.  In Brenda's defense, I think part of the issue was the underdevelopment of her character. I think there was an intent on either Levinson's (or Riche's) part to craft Brenda as a "poor little rich girl" type who had no moral compass because her father was a business tycoon who ignored her and had loved Julia's mother more than her mother. If this was true, and the intent to solicit sympathy, or least empathy, for Brenda, it wasn't played enough for this to be effective. Brenda rejected Julia both in terms of her role as a parental figure and any sisterly advice she gave.  I would even go further and say that the issues I have with the Brenda/Karen rivalry were inherit to Bill Levinson's writing. By comparison, if you look at what was being done in the other female rivalries, the issues were mostly consistent. Jenny and Julia, for example, had the potential to be interesting but Julia was so passive and Jenny was sound brash and unfeeling that there was no one to root for. Also, the rivalry between Tiffany and Bobbie took Tiffany into a very narrow view with her solely trying to secure custody of Lucas at the cost of everything else including her friendship with Bobbie and Tony as well as her marriage to Sean. I'd be curious to see if Levinson had similar issues when he was at "Loving," but I'm spacing at the moment.
