Good morning, gang!
Well, I know I have a few Young & the Restless fans out there, so this Blog is for YOU!! I'll admit, I've been an on-again, off-again fan of the show for years, and I haven't paid a whole lot of attention over the past year to what's been happening in Genoa City. However, last week I started watching more faithfully again, and boy, did I pick a good week to start tuning in!
As an ice storm hit the city, it seemed like everyone was dealing with trauma. Half of the town was stuck at Indigo where the Art Benefit was supposed to be held, including JT, who was worried about Colleen trying to get from the school to Indigo in the treacherous conditions. Little did JT know that Colleen was not only safe & sound at the school, she was also getting better acquainted with Professor Korbel. I detest the new Colleen and this cocky professor dude. Poor JT's at Indigo on his cell, trying desperately to reach her, and she's ka-noodling with her teacher. Ugh. JT and Colleen are one of my favourite couples on TV, but I really hate where their story arc is taking them.
Meanwhile, Phyllis, who is way overdue with her baby, got trapped in an elevator with her ex Jack, and of course she goes into labour. It's daytime drama, people. Did anyone think she wouldn't go into labour?? Personally, though, I think this storyline has been overused. It's already been done many times, including on Saved by the Bell, when Zack delivered Mrs. Belding's bouncing bundle of joy while trapped in an elevator. But back to Phyllis...She had sent hubby Nick home to get her hospital bag just as the storm hit, but do you think he had a smooth trip? No. He came upon an accident, so he stopped to help. Naturally, it was Phyllis' son Daniel and his wife Lily, and Daniel was in bad shape, so Nick had to rush to help them.
So now we have Phyllis giving birth in an elevator with her ex-husband Jack acting as her coach and doctor, while her new husband Nick is rushing her son Daniel to the hospital with his wife Lily giving him CPR in the back of Nick's car.
Of course, I'm only giving you a few of the plots that are unfolding here. There's also Brad and Sharon, and Victor and Nikki and Victoria, and Kevin and Janna, and so many more. It's almost as bad as Passions! (Okay, not quite...)
By the end of yesterday's episode, JT had picked Colleen up at the school and had no suspicions of the naughty rendez-vous his girlfriend had just had with her prof...But if I get my way, JT will find out soon enough and kick her booty to the curb. Then I'll step in as his new love interest. Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?
Jack had safely delivered Nick & Phyllis' baby girl in the elevator, and they arrived at the hospital shortly after Nick arrived with an unconcious Daniel and a frantic Lily. Moments later, Lily announced that Daniel was going to be fine and the CPR Nick had instructed her to give Daniel had saved his life. After Lily thanked Nick for rescuing them, he was whisked away to meet his new baby daughter.
Just another day in Genoa City!!
