There is a media company called Chancellor Communications (ChanceComm) that is owned by Jill, and run by Billy and Lily.

 

Billy ran an article (exposé) about Adam's many sins through the years.  One of the things in the article was what Adam did to Ashley by gaslighting her and switching Faith.

 

Ashley's reaction - transcript from Oct 2:

 

Ashley: Jack, everything Billy published is the truth. And it's a little distressing being reminded of that difficult time, but... it's not gonna break me.

 

Jack: Wait. I would think you'd be a lot more upset about this.

 

Ashley: I don't know what happened in Kansas, and I don't know what happened in Vegas, but I do know that during that time in Genoa City, Adam is 1,000% responsible for every single last thing that he's been accused of. And the cruelty that he inflicted on people, namely me, only proves that he's impervious to human suffering -- except, of course, his own suffering. And isn't that the very definition of a sociopath?

 

Jack: You of all people are entitled to that point of view.

 

Ashley: Yes, thank you. I am. And I'm sorry if Faith is hurt by this, and it's unfortunate if Victor suffers any blowback. But all Billy did -- [ Scoffs ] All he did was peel back the curtain on a vile, contemptible human being. So whatever happens to Adam, he had it coming.

 

 

That is an excellent response. Glad Ashley called out Adam BS

Adam is what happens when HW’s & EP’s has the complete lack of foresight and makes shortsighted decisions for pure shock value. I mean they wanted their own version of James Stenbeck from ATWT in Adam what we have gotten now is a big mess. This latest Kansas retcon has been pretty unnecessary and uninteresting.

I'm catching up and it's just so laughable... everything happens by text. "Oh, Chloe just had her baby" LOL. Kyle and Summer: "Oh, we had so much fun in Chicago, next we can go get our marriage license and get married" as they sit in a hotel room. It's so embarrassing. 

 

I'm betting that they won't show Dina's funeral and will just have them sit at the coffee house and say what a nice service. Hoping we at least get old clips.

I'm watching some episodes and the Amanda/Devon/Nate/Elena stuff is pretty good. I do like the Phyllis/Amanda scenes, but MS is stuck in her old tricks again. Christel Khalil looks great and lively without the boring Cane. I enjoyed her scenes with Victor.

The Quad is just a simple story, with appealing actors, with a soapy secret (hiding an affair). The rest of the show is much ado about nothing. Lots of plot and business machinations that don’t amount to much.

This is my first time watching new episodes since I can't remember when. 

 

The Amanda/Devon/Elena/Nate quadrangle is the most interesting I have seen in a while. I just really wish they would go back to the Bell days of directing and music. It would add so, so much mood and atmosphere. I hope they have longterm plans for this quad and all involved. 

 

Chelsea, Adam, Nick, Phyllis, Victor. Just blah. Good Lord. Same thing year after year. I can barely understand anything coming out of Victor's mouth. And WTF is Michelle doing in her scenes? I wish they would make Phyllis just a straight sociopath. The new Chance is a no for me. Is he supposed to be country and western? 

 

This is the most refreshing I have seen Lily in years. Glad Cane and twins are out of the picture. 

 

I do like seeing everyone having actual jobs though. 

 

I have probably said this many times before but I have no interest in the Abbotts or Newmans anymore. I really wish they would bring Olivia back and focus the show on the Barber-Winters, give Traci and younger character to mentor and focus on Sharon/Mariah/Faith. I have little attention span for anyone else. I would love to see Nina come back and a recast Chance too.

Their is more happening IMO. No new writers. Susan dansby is a story consultant but she hasn't been credited yet.

Short answer, yes. The show has been better. There’s more drama, more conflict. There are fewer conversations that go nowhere and mean nothing.

I'll say this much...I am looking forward to people's response today.

 

That said...this week it will hit too close to home for me so won't watch though I love Dina. Perhaps someday once my personal life has settle.

I saw the episode last night (because, the internet) and by the end, I just sat in silence and took a deep breath.

 

Given the restrictions they are filming under and the extra care I’m sure they took because of Marla Adams’ age, it was very touching. Janice Ferri Esser was the correct writer for this episode.
 

I do think you’re right to give it a swerve for now for the reason you gave.

    • Wes was suppose to be jock but after the dream season the story was changed.

    • There is some stuff for me to nitpick here: * The Wes Parmalee story was definitely a misfire but did it really matter in the scheme of things? Even in its best days, the show had its fair share of dud stories; Dallas for better or for worse wasn't a well-plotted show (much better than Dynasty, mind you). You tuned in because it had great characters. * Killing Bobby was the mistake. Boy, did Duffy f*** up there.  But, yeah, the dream was... a bold choice. That I could have almost accepted if they had been coherent how they tied the loose ends. But it was a last minute bit of cleverness and they clearly hadn't thought the follow-up through. Any fan can list the long list of things that were left over from "before the dream" that it made no sense not to be addressed again if the dream season was a dream. * I personally think Kristin was a powerful character when she was on but her value would have dwindled over time and I am not upset she was written out. I do not agree she had years of stories in her although they could have kept her alive and sprung her for a surprise revenge later (typically the kind of character it would have been fun to bring back for the lead-up to a JR comeuppance finale). * I don't think Jenna was a well-written character but she provided a useful obstacle for Pam/Bobby and I was OK with that. And the minute you accept a different actress playing the same character, you have to suspend disbelief as to the inconsistencies with the earlier tale. It wasn't absurd to revisit it and it was quickly resolved so ... fine. Again, Dallas wasn't that good at plotting but the character interaction worked in the grand scheme of the Pam/Bobby story. * Lucy was useless from Day One.
    • I like Gizelle too! But I also love Karen. Their banter is A+. I pretty much can find something to enjoy with everyone on Potomac (yes, even Candiace). One thing: the RHOP women are ALL skilled fighters. There’s not a shrinking violet in the bunch.   Beverly Hills is (almost) the opposite for me, which is why I won’t be watching. I just don’t find these women likable. At all. It’s unpleasant as a viewer. Those first 2-3 seasons (and select later moments like Amsterdam) were brilliant, though.
