@Dylan With all this Billy vs. Adam wash and repeat storyline, what about Billy shooting Adam and running him over?? He isn’t so innocent - and Chloe too shooting Adam twice now. It would be nice if that got counter published lol.

Righttt?

Im surprised adam hasnt mentioned he tried to run him over barely a year ago

How soon before devon sleeps with amanda

Ashley looks fabulous and adds class to the show. 
 

The “shadow puppet” sex wasn’t embarrassing like B&B although Nate’s shadow did suspiciously look like Devon’s shadow

That was my first thought. The hair (or lack thereof) in the shadow was the biggest indicator. And I note there were more ‘in the moment’ facial expressions and close ups than usual- just in case we weren’t quite sure what was going on

I think Y&R did a great job on this sex Elena and Nate sex scene. It's been building for almost 2 years. Probably would have happened long ago of Josh hadn't put that quad on ice to play Amanda with Billy.

My problem is that, aside from Amanda, these characters exist in their own little corner of the show. That’s not satisfying to me. I’m not particularly invested in Nate or Elena in spite of the charismatic actors. Who are these people? Who are Nate and Elena’s friends? How does their sex ripple and have consequences beyond just a betrayal of Devon? Maybe I need to watch more to know...

 

That said, people seem to be into “Elate” on social media.

See? This could be so much more if they would play the fact that he's a Barber more. Or even better bring Olivia back to remind people who Nate is. His history on the show. Is he not a legacy character? One would not know given how he's been used since he's been back. And they can play up the relations between him and Devon more. Not to mention Lily.

Exactly. Nate might as well just be “Dr. Jason Jackson“ instead of “Dr. Nate Hastings, Jr.,” for all the use his connection to Y&R history has given him. They are trying to make him as bland as possible so they can do whatever they want with him. They lucked out by casting a gorgeous, gorgeous man. But... meh.

LOL!!! I was about to say that...they have someone with some charisma playing him and yet...?

 

I do like the focus. But...with that history...there should be more.

He’s definitely the best adult Nate they have cast on the show thus far but his history hasn’t been explored at all. I mean does he even mention Olivia? Terrible!

 

Same thing with Theo, the show went out of their way to make him Stuart Brooks’ grandson but the Brooks connection hasn’t even been explored at all.

    • Most networks were thinking about getting out of soaps at that time and Passion was the first that went, then Guiding Light and As The World Turns, then of course One Life To Live and All My Children. The truth is that General Hospital was next to go if they hadn't seen that the replacements weren't doing well (I think NBC ultimately ended up giving up Passions time slot to affliaties, but I might be wrong) and that's what's so far kept the remaining soaps on air. They know if they lift them off at this point they'll not only get replacements doing worse, but also likely affect the rest of the remaining daytime line up negatively. I assume they've figured the remaining soaps DO have a unique audience that won't tune in unless there's a soap on air.

    • Well I definitely applaud them. Yes, they could have done much much better at least with one of them storylines. But the messages were never lost on me. I was more than touched by Stuart and Lily. @j swift what did you feel about Spike storyline? I remember being so happy they were giving that to one of Erica’s grandchildren.    Stuart portrayal was like a combination of many different types of disorders imo. He represented to me a lot of the fredo Corleone’s of the world. He was so relatable, I saw so many people I knew in him.  I saw some of myself in Stuart, he inspired me, gave me hope too. I’m sure Agnes could have done a better job at giving him a clear illness, I’m fine with the way things played out though. I have a cousin who is kinda special needs(not sure if that’s the right term, my apologies if it isn’t) and he has went on to have many relationships and have children. I don’t believe he’s capable of taking care of himself or the children, but he has them.   I do agree with you, about these missed opportunities, especially with Lily and Jonathan. Do you think every social issue or Character driven storyline is soapy enough, to be told?!     Are you guys excited to hear Wisner Washam new interview?   
    • I strongly doubt  Valentini,  Van Etten and O'Conner know who Conner is. Conner was a fairly obscure character to begin with.
    • Speaking of passions, How exactly did that show get cancelled. I know it was dead last but it did well in the demos they want.
