Adding onto my prior post about all the random stuff JG was writing for the 50th anniv and the year following that (March 2023 - March 2024 and continuing) ...
I forgot to mention the Cricket/Danny/Phyllis "triangle" which JG seemed to think was a flashback to years ago, but it's NOT.   The past few months with them were written so badly!

B&B's official YouTube channel has posted the full length tribute to Ed and Melody Thomas Scott. It features extra footage not included in the Emmy's telecast. It verifies my suspicion that the Bells produced this, rather than the Emmys themselves, the background music is all signature Bell cues.

Oh, honey... that was the most action packed episode of the entire year...

 

Seriously. This was the conclusion of months of "story" with the best sets we'd seen in a while and the most action and "twists."

6-6

 

Well, I guess we know now why Ashley splintered now. lol. It's on the strength of this being a heavy Ashley week and my love of Eileen Davidson that I kept on watching when I was about to stop on 6-5...which was NOT an Ashley episode. And this is the second time they get a good writing flow going on...only for her story to vanish usually on a good coda...cuz ugh. 

 

And what stories they had on 6-5? Connor's off-screen adventures. Summer walking back giving Claire the benefit of the doubt. And Winters drama with Mamie...whom I was happy to see (and Chance in the Claire mess) since they had upped and vanished. And now Billy the Prick is setting up Lily for more Winters drama.

 

And while I figured out the twist mid-episode, I did like how the cliffhanger was done.

 

So here I am on Friday's episode. Oops. But...the power of Ash. lol.

Well the Ashley story took a completely different twist than I ever could’ve imagined. I can’t think this was the original direction of the story when it started. I found it all well acted though and the twist was interesting. I’d say one of the better stories JG has done but mainly because I love the Abbott’s and anytime Ashley is front and center.

I do think it’s still dumb her own daughter knows none of this has been going on.

Abby could start a podcast called "[!@#$%^&*] My Families Haven't Told Me About" and each episode could be about her learning about and responding to the latest crises in her families months after the fact.

Hehe. I was waiting for you to comment. Now where's @soapfan770?

I almost wish that I had not seen the NEXT WEEK promo because I was hoped on the coda last week when Alan revealed he never talked to her and was trying to figure out what that could mean. I was that invested. lol. Again...the power of the Ash. 

 

I agree with you on well acted and the twist. Dislike JG I have on this run, but it's clear he really does love the Abbotts above all other families and it shows. 

 

I admit that I've been mostly nit-picky on everything BUT (and even then I have, too) the Ashley storyline. And I attest that to Eileen Davidson's acting and everyone around her aka the Abbott family. Cuz the story has been so uneven though that even worked in its favor due to Eileen Davidson giving a masterclass on acting with a split personality. Those tells she gave long before the story took off were flawless.

This Y&R Thanksgiving 2023 picture says so much about how Y&R sees Abby...
It's awful by putting her in the middle instead of Mamie.

And these are the only characters she interacts with.

6-7

 

So now that I've sat down and slept on it. I have mixed feelings about the climax to Ashley's storyline. Well... to be exact... that it has another turn coming and she'll be off canvas it seems for a bit.

 

I thought everything Paris was well done. And the twist with Alan was good even if the fight was cheesy. Well done, but CHEEEESE. Especially since he was limping around a commerical break later. I was expecting Tucker to be that guy that came to rescue her. In a way, this felt like the story is going to be prolonged only so he can do just that.

I just didn't like that Alan was like 'we still don't know all of the truth.' Well... don't we? Even hinting at something waaayyyyy back in the past worries me that JG is doing to mess up some history and Y&R is one of the few soaps you cannot get away with that without some backlash

 

 

On a personal note, I hope I do find something interesting coming. lol. Just like the last time Ashley's storyline took up a whole week (and was well done with cliffhangers every day), I hope this show this week isn't like how the show was post-that week...aka annoying, uneven, and focused on boring story.

It's bizarre that NO ONE has bothered to tell Abby any of this. This shows what a non-character Abby has become.

But, then none of the Newmans told her about the Jordan stuff, either...LOL.
