I don't think anything further happened with Kevin and Ashley other than those scenes at the Newman Towers construction site and the Jabot lab. Not long after Ashley was paired with that chemist Brian but was another pairing that didn't last.

 

There was also a scene with Jack bringing flowers to Julia but I don't think anything came of that either. I wonder if Jack knew during Julia's Jabot modelling days that Julia was married to Victor. There was a scene where Victor mentioned Jabot and John Abbott so Victor knew of the Abbotts but Victor wasn't placed in the Abbotts orbit until 1984.

It would have been interesting if back in those early days victor and jack were good friends or at least had respect for each other and then they entered into there own war that would go on for decades. I just think it would spice up there rivalry and something to maybe revisit if needed.

 

Ashley was soo damn beautiful when she started and basically still has almost the same face in 2020.

 

I seen those scenes with Jack/Julia and i remember reading that jack tried to get Julia into modeling and those times he had stories with diane,jill,patty and i swear if im correct gina also

Heads up everyone - our beloved mystery 1982 uploader has now switched to adding files to the adjacent 1983 folder.

Praying for at least a glimpse of Lauren’s debut from 1/25/83!

And please please please let us see Madame Mergeron’s dramatic entrance to the Abbott home!

Just watched the first of the 1983 clips. Victor and Julia ❤️!! 

 

Enjoyed the flashback Julia has to 1980-81(?) of when she and Vic split up after the Michael Scott fiasco.  Also enjoyed Jill & John's scenes on "023b", where Katherine goes off on Jill.  Can't say I was much of a D. Adair fan though.  I always felt her scenes fell a little flat.

Kevin is adorable and a good singer too. Interesting that they seemed to have chem tested him with Ashley. And there was Allison's line about John Abbot having "two marriageable daughters." I thought they should have kept him around. I really love the whole Bancroft family storyline.

 

I think Kevin Bancroft added a lot to the show, too.  But in hindsight, where he REALLY excelled was serving as a foil to Nikki & Victor's relationship.   Chris Holder played Kevin as such a dimwit, and Melody Thomas played Nikki as such a dimwit, and their marriage and silly fights were a very good light-hearted contrast to Eric Braeden's brooding vampire of a character.

Yeah she's too nice, but the scene where she comes back in the green outfit, I have another snippet (literally a few seconds) from that scene where she says something like "I have everything I want and you have nothing" just that snippet showed me she could still do the more wicked part of Jill as well. Too bad we didn't get that whole scene.

 

Allison at the Bayou is hilarious.

I liked L. Stern, but once she started living in the Abbott house, it seemed like all she ever did is sit around and mope.  Lol

LOL There's actually a December 1982 clip floating around with Liz and Jill sitting in the Abbott living room and Jill lists everything that annoys her about the other Abbotts and she says "Patty does nothing but mope around"! :D

Is it me or does The Bayou look more like a honky tonk dive bar than a strip club? I guess I have this image of strip clubs through a 2020 lens, you know, the pole, dollar bills on the stage, VIP section with bottle service :lol:

 

Come to think of it, Bill Bell writing Victor and Nikki's story starting at a strip club may be responsible for an entire generation of hip hop artists and NBA players that love strip clubs 🤣

I liked that they reused sets. Having Nikki and Kevin in her house she shared with Casey and Julia in Lorie's Penthouse. It also gave a connection to the past, no doubt Summer 82 was the end of the original Y&R and the transition to the new one. 

 

Does anyone know if the Abbott residence was first seen in Mar/Apr when Jack and Mamie are first together. I think it was Apr 1, 1982 or near there. Synopsis mentions Jack has an apartment in 1981 and I think most scenes pre-1982 took place there or at Jabot or Jill's place or other locations. I assume the scene of John finding Jack and Jill together in 1981 was just a hallway set. Like the recreation with Jerry Douglas in 1982. 

 

Also Jerry Douglas and Terry Lester's first and I think second scenes together are so good, like they've been working together for a while, rather than they just started, just such a natural flow. A little more uptight than later years, but still the chemistry and flow between them is solid. 

 

Was that a production goof during the scene between Nikki and Kevin when they are fighting after she comes home from The Bayou. Looks like the camera went too high and we saw above the set

Julia in Lorie's Penthouse

Aha! It is the same set! :D LOL I always thought Julia's apartment in 1984 looked like Lorie's from 81-82, and that clears it up! :

Re Kevin.

When Melody fell pregnant,wasn't it the case that Bill Bell decided to use this and quickly refashioned the story to introduce Kevin and have him sleep with Nikki?

That's my recollection.That was in Jan 82.

But strangely enough in Dec 81, Victor had introduced Nikki to Rex Barber and he and Nikki had hit it off.

So why didn't Bill just continue with Rex as that story was already in place?

Maybe the actor playing Rex wasn't available or Bell/Conboy didn't like him enough to  make him a major character?

Those were the first Abbott house scenes (where Mamie was calling Jack as "Mister Jack"), which I never recall her saying again, and the first Terry / Jerry scenes.  Also, Robert Lawrence eventually moved into the Prentiss house after Lance was gone.  I remember some mention of it on the show, where he had bought the place from them.  It underwent a very slight remodel (windows, paint, stain,  and furnishings mostly).  There are some scenes of it in the '82 clips.  I don't know where that put Lucas.  Maybe in the apartment above Jonas'.
