Many storylines are crescendoing on ‘The Young and the Restless’. Further change will arrive in Genoa City as the fall winds blow during November Ratings Sweeps. Various Y&R fans will surely applaud those developments, as they look to executive producer and head writer Mal Young to establish new directions.
The trafficking ring was seen as a way to promote a topically relevant issue. Sally Sussman’s writing team crafted a believable storyline that weaved the sad tales of various characters through its script pages. This arc is now nearing the end of its course.
Phase one of the reveal involved tagging Zack (Ryan Ashton) as the ring’s leader. Now that Scott (Daniel Hall) directly confronted Ashton’s character, Zack will be charged, or escape town. Paul (Doug Davidson) needs hard evidence to emerge that will clear Scott, or Zack needs to make a careless mistake. Sharon’s (Sharon Case) plea to Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) will prove key to the coming resolution.
The battle between Jabot and Brash and Sassy, along with the personal vendetta’s being waged by Jack (Peter Bergman) and Billy (Jason Thompson) must soon end. The toxic face mask scandal will serve to alter personal and professional assaults.
The linked storyline that put Vickie (Amelia Heinle) in the hospital will also play into ‘Villy’s’ revival or ‘Philly’s’ unexpected strengthening. Billy can’t maintain his tie to Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) as is, but may also not be employed by Brash and Sassy for much longer, thus cutting his daily link to Vickie and with it chances for reconciliation.
Victor’s (Eric Braeden) vendetta against Nick (Joshua Morrow) was too much. Nick’s persistent reactions to all that his father has done also went too far. Thankfully a truce was called between both men. Having them work together, especially as family time arrives at the holidays, would be a smart plot point.
As a result, ‘Niktor’s’ chances of reuniting would be aided. Also, the dramatic fire story set at The Underground should afford a deeper opportunity for all Newman’s to heal.
