Y&R October 2018 Discussion Thread

The episode that I watched last night struck me as somewhat claustrophobic, stuck in that church with nowhere else to go.  Never thought I'd long so badly for a B story to shift action occasionally.

 

Also, it wasn't so much the small number in attendance as it was the sad aspect that watching this--looking at Sharon's side of the church empty out when the bridesmaids went to the back of the church-- is that Sharon, other than her offspring, has no people.  That would be fine for a character who was on for a year or less, not twenty years.  Meanwhile, the Rosales family have taken root, what, less than a year after Arturo was introduced?

 

There are so many missing elements that show how far Y&R is from it's best, or even good state of being.

Yeah, Sharon pretty much only has Mariah in her corner. But even looking at recent weddings on the other soaps, like the various B&B weddings and even John/Marlena’s nuptials on dollar-store DAYS, this felt the most low-budget and least impactful. And it should have packed a punch. I just don’t... care about the ramifications of any of today’s drama. Y&R feels like an empty, dead show.

Sharon's lack of family other than her kids is alarming.

 

Exactly what I was saying!  For a character that's been around over twenty years? Victor has had more family pass through and he grew up in an orphanage!  Just weird, incomplete writing.

Doris absence over the past couple of years has been ridiculous.

 

Doris with her sanctimonious "Girl' and judgmental attitude can stay hidden - especially since she refused Victor's gracious offer to get her to the best surgeons.

I thought today's show was good. I liked how Noah tried to diffuse the situation with his parents and him talking with Mariah.

 

I don't find Billy/Summer appealing at all. IMO, she looks too young for him. I wonder if she will end up pregnant. I think she might. I think that her and Billy sleeping together while Phyllis rocked back and forth like she was disturbed could be foreshadowing that Summer may get pregnant. And that will disturb Phyllis even more. I could see a situation where Summer only sleeps with Billy one time, he goes to rehab, then comes back and wants nothing to do with her. And then she will end up pregnant and that will really complicate things. Summer becoming pregnant with Billy's baby will really devastate Phyllis.

I had wondered why Sharon ended up even bothered to show up just to dump Nick publicly at the altar. I can see it as revenge for their 2014 wedding debacle but the entire reveal pales extremely in comparison back to 2006 when Sharon was seducing in Nick in the same lingerie Phyllis had worn. Honestly it would have been more intriguing had Nick and Sharon bared all before hand and then married simply for fraud than endured an umpteenth Phick/Shick war and now apparently BUMMER.    

 

Brooke Logan and Reva Shayne would be proud of Phyllis and Summer!

 

The rest of the show is total crap. I already predicted that Sharon is going to be tied up with Rey. As for the rest of the show it completely feels aimless now.

Although the ending of today's episode was somewhat satisfying (yes, I watched...the first time in months!) I have to say that Y&R was in desperate need of a B story today. 

 

 

Perhaps Mal Young is taking lessons from Brad Bell?

Eww, what the hell did I just watch??  Glad I only watched Thursday's episode-- one and done.

 

This is clearly Mal Young's fantasy for old/older dudes to bed young women. Does he even know that women are the majority of this show's viewers?

This was so gross

 

Ewwwwwww...really, Billy?  After all that 'I don't like you like that' talk (i'm still behind on my viewing), you STILL slept with Summer. Just ugh!!! You and Phyllis were on break.

Remember, in MY's universe, not only can a person exhibit sexually aggressive, even harassing behavior in the workplace and not only will they not have any consequences but they will eventually get what they want when the opportunity presents itself.

That just lets me know that when Eileen bows out, so will I. Off to recaps.

 

Oh, well, I gave him a chance. Now I'm grown more and more disinterested.

Well Billy is the only older dude bedding a younger woman. Before that it was older women bedding younger men.I don't know why the young people cant date people their age like in real life. I just hope he doesn't have Phyllis seduce Kyle.  It's bad enough they keep pairing him with his on and off step sister Summer. Phyllis was around him when he was a little kid.
