Funky Sh*t Goin' Down in Genoa City

Last week, I was right into the Young & the Restless because the storyline was focusing quite a bit on Daniel & Amber, my new favourite couple on the show. Well, not so much a couple anymore, because Daniel found out that Amber had cheated on him while he was away on tour with his dad. Anyways - the whole week, I was glued to the show, watching the fall-out after Amber finally told her beau that she had slept with Professor Adrian Korbel while he was gone.


This week, I wasn't so interested, because that storyline had slipped into the background, and to be honest, things were getting a little dry and boring on the Y&R.

Ah, but then came last night's episode. It was one of those episodes where you finally get a sniff of interesting things to come - it seems were on the cusp of something big. Definitely some funky sh*t goin' down in Genoa City!

I don't read spoilers, so I'm not sure what exactly is going to happen. You guys have mentioned car crashes, killing off characters, some commotion at the gala - not sure what exactly is going to take place, but if last night's episode is any indication, any or all of those things could occur.

First of all - can I just tell you how much I hate the character of Chloe? She's such a little twit! Apparently she's taken the notion she's in love with Cane, and she's not about to let his girlfriend Lily stand in the way. Last night, while Cane was in the midst of actually proposing to Lily, Chloe marched right up to him and told him she was pregnant with his baby! Now, as I've said, I kind of drift in & out of what's going on with the show, so I don't even know if they ever actually even did the nasty, but something tells me Chloe's not really "with child", and if she is, it's definitely not Cane's!

Then we've got that snake Jack Abbot, whom I loathe even more with each episode. He altered the article in Restless Style to slander Victor's new wife Sabrina just so he could sell more magazines - and by doing so, threw his business partners Nick, Phyllis, Sharon and the author of the article, Adrian, under the bus. Victor's been on a rampage ever since, looking for revenge. I was shocked last night when Jack just waltzed right up to Sabrina and admitted it all to her! I hate that pompous, sneaky weasel!!

But the really, really interesting storyline - and because I've only got bits and pieces of it along the way, I'm not entirely sure what's going on - is that Nikki's husband, David Chow, is up to something big. And I'm pretty sure whatever the big turn of events is that's coming down the pipe at us, he's going to be behind it all. Last night's episode ended with him slipping something in Nikki's drink, and we've got Paul Williams & JT Hellstrom feverishly trying to prove David had something to do with Ji-Min's death. One thing is becoming clear - David is dangerous, and Nikki is in trouble.

I'm assuming things will start snapping into place and fireworks will start going off tonight. I love it when all hell breaks loose in Genoa City!!

... so no blog about the crappy night at ball eh... okay okay... still glad the blog is currently on a regular schedule, makes for less boring slow days at work.

I had nothing to say about that miserable rainy ball game that we lost. I soooo didn't want to be playing ball last night. I was NOT a happy camper.

Yesterday, some of them were looking for a Y&R blog, and seeing it's a show I actually do watch from time to time, I thought I would comply. Figures that today they haven't come out to play! (Yet...)

Hey hey just wait a minute, I was still formulating my comment. NEways today's show you gotta watch! Lily doesn't care that Chloe says she's pregnant. (She is pregnant by the way, just not with Cane's baby. She was taking booty calls. So who knows who is the daddy.) David was a hitman for the mob and this Walter guy wants him to do some job. Devon and Ana sing at the gala. David poisons Nikki's ginger ale and everyone thinks she's drinking again. David tries to take her home, BUT will JT and Paul save her in time??? You gotta watch! David and Nikki's limo does crash today, and in tomorrow's episode Victor comes to the rescue. Man I hope our tv is working when I get home tonight!

Jill said...

Ooohhh...Sounds juicy!! Can't wait to watch! I'll make sure I see it tonight!!

I keep hearing that Sabrina's been fired - thank gosh, I am NOT a fan of her & Victor together. Just a little confused of why they bothered bringing her in for such a short storyline - a fast relationship with Victor, wedding, pregnancy - and then it's all going to be over? If something happens to David too, will this be there way of bringing Nikki & Victor back together (where they should be)??

priscilla said...

That's what they say, that Victor and Nikki will get back together in the end. Apparently Sabrina's contract was only for so long and they've decided not to sign her again. And I don't think the baby is actually Victor's in the first place, probably her lover Philippe's. Plus he's had like 2 vasectomy's or something. I wasn't a fan of all the french talking and smooching either. Eric Braeden was supposedly jealous of all the attention Lily and Cane were getting with their romance, so that's why he wanted a similar storyline for his character. But it didn't work out, nobody liked them together!

I DO NOT LIKE SABRINA NON PLUS - MON CHERIE - blegh, GAG ME...glad shes gone, I read that the ratings weren't good for her so they are taking her out of the show somehow. I also read that it was morphine or something that must have went into Nikki's drink - well I'll make sure and tune it now, sounds like we're getting out of the boring dry spell and getting some excitement. OOohh...
as far as Chloe, yep dont like her, she was pregnant i think when she drugged Cane and slept with him that time - she was already pregnant and that was like 2 weeks ago - so i dont know how the show goes but i mean all it will take is some calculating to figure out that its not Cane's...although, I don't know - TV - it could be 3 mths from now, but I always thought it was on time - they alwas have celebrations near when we have them and stuff...anyways...
well what is the announcement that Victor told the kids he was annoucning at the Ranch - was it that Sabrina is pregnant?

Shitballs our dish is down. Yes Chloe found out she was pregnant before. And I don't think she actually had sex with Cane, she just took all his and her clothes off and then got on top of him. Then he woke up and found her naked on top and she told him that they had sex. But he couldn't remember any of it cause it didn't really happen. David put liquid morphine in her drink. Sabrina is supposed to die, but it might not be yet cause apparently she's on until August sometime, unless she doesn't die right away, but later. Oh and for the baby, they will probably do a paternity test since they always do those on soaps. But Chloe will likely find a way around that too.

yea our dish is still down too - i think this is the longest we've gone without it - usually there is a fix quick - but we still have our Bell dish - thank god!!

Stacy - we'll get this big storm when we get home and the Bell dish will be out or osmething ...lol

Jill said...

PK, I don't think I've ever heard you say "shitballs" before - I burst out laughing when I read that! lol
Thanks for the clarification on the Cane/Chloe sitch - I missed all that, so I wasn't sure what happened there. Sometimes things on soaps happen so fast, sometimes so slow - like one day I watched & Jeff & Gloria were gouging each others' eyes out, and then a few days later, they were married! Ah, the beauty of daytime television!!

daytime television that we watch in the evening...thats what i like about Y&R, i used to watch Bold and The Beautiful and All My Children but only on days off...

priscilla said...

Yes Jeff and Gloria are married but they are still scheming. Jeff has the face cream and told Glo that he didn't have it. Then she was calling somebody about Jeff. Chad is supposed to be getting a different dish but hasn't yet. I don't know what he's waiting for. I have to get back to work and get everything caught up before I leave on my trip tomorrow! Yay!

Have a great time in Sudbury, PK!!! :)

I have to say, I do like Amber and Daniel as a couple - both have kind of that wacky personality. I do not like the whole Chloe/Cane saga though...
