Here are some upcoming spoilers from Daytime Confidential

Ashley: Family and friends attempt to make her realize Faith is really Nick and Sharon's daughter. Ashley refuses to fathom the baby she loves isn't hers and is hopeful Victor can prove everyone wrong. Billy and Jack wonder if their sister's starting to crack up again and are fueled further when she recalls Faith's delivery. Ashley relays the night she "gave birth," but her tale has key pieces missing. As she's telling her story, Ashley realizes she can remember being unconscious and coming to, but not being in labor. Meanwhile, Phyllis, Nick and Sharon swing by Ash's to visit with Faith where she's still firm on Faith being her child and not her former stepson's.Once the trio finishes an awkward chat with Ashley, she kicks them out and lets Jack know she doesn't need him acting like a mother hen. Later, when Jack jumps in the shower, Ashley decides to take Faith and flee! While at the airport, Ash and Tucker run into each other and chat a bit where he figures out how fragile she is right now. Surprisingly, Tucker gives Ashley some food for thought. The rebel billionaire (snort) makes Ash ponder if she really wants to be on the run with Faith.

Adam: He goes to Jill with some interesting information.

Katherine: The grand dame shocks Victor and Jack with their pitch regarding Jabot.

Michael: He gets eye-opening news that may wreck his marriage.

JT/Victoria: The Hellstroms amicable divorce goes out the window when JT decides to fight for sole custody of little Reed. JT thinks Victor's effect on his son isn't in Reed's best interest. When Victoria finds out from Michael about JT's intentions, she is thrown for a loop. Later, she swings by Crimson Lights and bumps in to Billy where she opens up about her divorce. The two bond over families sticking together while JT and Mac have the same conversation.

JT lets Mac know all about his heated association with the Newman clan. Afterwards, JT and Victoria have a showdown where she tells him he's a punk for not telling her about his plans to go for full custody and demands he leaves the house. JT pulls an Effie White and lets Vic know he's not going nowhere! Victoria goes to see Michael for help and he tells her JT's within the law by not vacating the house since the two signed the lease together (wah?!). Michael lets Victoria know the best way she can win the war is to stay put.

Cane: He turns to someone unexpected for assistance.

Patty: She turns up the heat in her quest for payback.

Lauren: Y&R's gearing up for her to have a doppelganger (How original right?).

JT and Victoria signed a lease for what? Aren't they living in Sharon's house that Nick built on Newman property?

I'm surprised Victoria wants custody of Reed, does she even spend anytime with the kid? Does he even know who she is? He probably thinks Mac is his mommy.

What is with Y&R and THESE DOPPELGANGERS? IS THAT REALLY THE ONLY STORY YOU CAN TELL ANYMORE? IT'S LAZY AND UNIMAGINATIVE AND I FIND IT UNBELIEVABLE AND INEXCUSABLE THAT YOU HAVE GONE TO THIS WELL SO MANY TIMES IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS.

Get your [[email protected]#$%^&*] together, quick.

We all assumed the redhead double they were casting was for Phyllis. Nobody guessed this I guess because yet another dobbleganger is just too ridiculous to consider. At least in that case it would be the return of an older character. I don't think Tracey Bregman will do well with this and the entire story sounds stupid and with no future.

At least this might mean they aren't going to fire Tracey Bregman or kill Lauren off. I hope?

Please tell me this isn't Sheila with plastic surgery again.

You don't have more faith in Y&R's pacing? On Monday, we will find out about the double. On Wednesday, she will kidnap Lauren. She will then do nothing for weeks or months while Lauren is held prisoner. Then, a day later, she will be confronted. Then we won't see the characters for three days, upon which time we will learn that Blauren was taken in by the police and Lauren was reunited with her family offcamera.

No Nelson thought Phyllis but most people put 5 foot 4 inches together to get a Lauren double.

Seeing Cassie today on the Canadian show made me wish that Daisy was a Cassie doppelganger. If you're going to go with a doppelganger, at least have someone who was wrongly killed off and the audience is interested in seeing.

    • I'm not willing to go that far... yet. China is drastic in the way they deal with dissidents but they're not Russia...yet. China has been known to 'disappear' people who they feel are interfering with the way they run their government business but not usually such high profile individuals (and usually not famous women, who they consider their flowers). Also, unlike Russia, China only seems to take the most extreme measures when some serious criminal charge is made (like the man who was charged with tainting the milk supply, who was executed). Ai Wei Wei is a dissident artists who makes dissident art that is openly critical of Chinese politics and government and he is treated as a hostile force, but even by his own admission he is deliberately provocative, as he believes agit-art is the best way that he can try to get the attention of people who would force change. China is not really in the business of disappearing people like Russia does. At least, not permanently. Jack Ma is one example of someone who went missing for weeks, if not months, then suddenly turned up on his yacht out in the middle of somewhere. You've heard of "Too Big to Fail"? Well, Ma was too big/famous to disappear. With her level of notoriety, I think it would be next to impossible to just do away with her, she's not poor anonymous "Tank Man" in Tiananmen Square. She is Han Chinese woman whose notoriety has only been growing, she's not the unfortunate Uyghurs who are often locked away for months in "re-education" camps, but I suspect that the government will try to 're-program' her mind to forget her allegations, likely under pressure if not all out threats made to her and her family. If she emerges publicly, if not living in anonymity, there will likely be every effort to have her appear timid and cowed in public, much the way she appears now, with broad forced smiles, in front of a menagerie of plush toys.
    • Tubi has some great stuff and I'm currently watching the He-Man She-Ra Christmas Special from 1985 
    • I recently came across the 1997 book Worlds Without End: The Art and History of the Soap Opera. In the book Bill Bell comments on two pivotal events in Y&R history. I hope nobody minds that I quoted his comments in full. On Taking Y&R to One Hour "Once assured that Y&R was a runaway hit, CBS inevitably wanted to talk to me about an hour. I'll spare you the gruesome details, but after months of enormous pressure from the network and the affiliates, I somehow found myself committed to doing the hour show. What ultimately happened is that our ratings went down and it took us three years to become number one again.   How could this have happened? One reason is that when we went to an hour, we had a number of cast defections. The issue of performing in a one-hour show had not been part of their contracts. And some of our leading actors understandably felt that their popularity on Restless would open the door to fame and fortune in nighttime or films. Obviously we had to recast prime characters in our two core families, the Brooks and the Fosters. It was then that I decided if even one more actor from these families decided to leave the show, I'd have to do something radical.   A short time later, Jaime Lyn Bauer, who played Lauralee Brooks and was one of the very few original cast members remaining, came to me and said she was physically exhausted, which she was, and that she wasn't going to renew her contract when it was up in August. This was February.   There was no other answer. I had to replace what had been the core of our show since its inception. Two complete families. About eleven actors in all. But replace them with what?   As I studied the remaining cast, I realized I had two characters - Paul Williams, played by Doug Davidson, and Jack Abbott, played by Terry Lester - both of whom had a relatively insignificant presence on the show. They didn't have families. Hell, they didn't even have bedrooms. But these became the two characters I would build our two new families around. I remember the head of daytime for CBS advising me "with the strongest possible conviction" that I was making a grave mistake by replacing these families. There was a great risk, no question, but my conviction was that it could be even more disastrous if I didn't.   I immediately began establishing new families while interweaving the old. We made this transformation without losing so much as a share point. In fact, our ratings and share points kept building, with our two new families emerging as the dominant characters on the show.   This is where Victor Newman came into the picture."   On Victor Newman "You are not going to believe this, but this character, who today is daytime's number one romantic lead, was to be a short-term noncontract role. It would last between eight to twelve weeks, at which time he was to be shot by his beautiful wife. In short, Victor Newman was in concept a despicable, contemptible, unfaithful wife abuser.   When I saw Eric Braeden's first performance - the voice, the power, the inner strength - I knew immediately that I didn't want to lose this man. He was exactly what the show needed. Not the hateful man we saw on-screen, but the man he could and would become over time.   The first thing was to get Eric under contract, but he didn't want to go under contract. He was very uneasy about television, the daytime serial, the people he worked with, the producers. This was a whole other world for Eric. And Eric is a cautious man.   Over time, Eric became more comfortable with the medium, and more trusting with the producers, and agreed to sign a contract. If memory serves, it was for six months. I immediately changed my story in the hope of salvaging this character.  The rest is history."
    • @JaneAusten the way and in the form most current media exist today is the reason why I have to read multiple sources every week, if I want even half the story.  Some days I can't even stomach much other than to read the headline the the lede. I can remember years ago when I would consume the news like it was my job because to be able to write, I felt like being well read was a must. To some extent, I still feel this way but I am far more circumspect about every single news source- I pretty much treat them all as if tabloid tendencies lurk beneath the surface.
