Incorporating the virus into the storylines would make it much easier to pull off the social distancing guidelines. Kissing and bedroom scenes honestly aren't integral enough to go through such dumb filming tricks. If they are going to get creative, have some characters cheat over a meeting app. That would involve no touching and it could actually make for an interesting storyline.

WTF?

 

Preserving those passionate on-screen kisses will involve a bit of creative camera work, and the magic of editing. Each actor will go through the motions separately, performing inches away from the camera. “They’ll look like they’re nose to nose, in the throes of passion,” Bell says. “But they’ll be shooting scenes all by themselves.”

 

Simulated sex scenes, though, will require more than clever camera work and creative lighting. Bell says he plans to use a combination of stand-ins and blow-up dolls. Actors’ spouses, who test negative for the novel coronavirus, will join their partners for love scenes that involve touching.  Life-like dummies will fill in for more intimate on-camera work.

 

“We have some life-like blow up dolls that have been sitting around here for the past 15 years, that we’ve used for various other stories — (like) when people were presumed dead,” says Bell. “We’re dusting off the dolls and putting new wigs and make-up on them and they’ll be featured in love scenes.”

Bell's wet dream comes to life.  So embarrassing but what can you expect from a show that runs 1 story for 3 years, switches to a C story for 3 months and then picks story A back up for another 3 years...

I'll pass. The Days time jump was a disaster. We don't need anymore.

Indeed. I'd rather have awkward distancing than what Bell just described, though it might lead to a lot of memes.

Rumor has it they already had to have several Jason Thompson/BillyBoy Dolls made because They expect Braeden will deflate the dolls head when Victor punches them pretending it's Billy! :D  

I could totally see that happening 🤣

@DramatistDreamer suggested there should be some troubles with business due to COVID on The Young and The Restless. And I think we should be seeing some trouble affecting Forrester Creations due to COVID as well. However, I doubt business will be any focus because we got to make sure Brooke & Bill sleep together for the hundredth time or have Hope and Steffy fight over blow up doll version of Liam instead. 

 

I hope they do a time jump and not go back to Sally Jr. and Dr. Peloton at the beach house after nearly four months later.

Exactly. Just acknowledge the world we live in for once. People will get it. You can still build fantasy, intrigue, and action on top of that, like you’ve shown with the virtual affair story. But again, they demonstrate their lack of respect for the audience’s intelligence. And the lack of creativity they have, even in the best of times.

-Forrester Creations fashion masks and “fashionable” PPE products are what’s holding the company together.

 

-Flo is in a coma. Sally tests positive for COVID-19, recovers, and uses that as a cover to say that’s why she thought she was dying.

 

-Ridge & Shauna have spent the last three months quarantined together in Vegas.

 

See, that’s all that needs to be done!

But... in this case, a time jump makes sense. We ran out of new material in May. Why should Genoa City and L.A. still be 3+ months behind? If not right away, at least at *some* point there'll need to be a reset, unless we want to celebrate Christmas 2020 in March?

But why would we need a time jump to make it July? I think it's as simple as they pick up where they left off and it's the current month.
