The Young and the Restless Daily Recap: Sharon’s Finally Busted

The drama continued today on The Young and the Restless leading to confessions, separations, and more legal woes.

Nick/Phyllis/Noah/Victoria: Today started with Noah and Phyllis discussing his sexual activities with Eden. She tried to explain to him the ramifications of sex (which I’m sure she knows a lot about these days) and Noah wasn’t interested. He ran out not telling Phyllis where he was going and leaving Phyllis more stressed out than she already was. Personally I don’t blame her for losing her head with all the stuff going on in her life. Noah ended up meeting with Victoria to try and get a perspective on his side.    

After Noah left, Phyllis flashed back to calling the cops to come to Sharon’s room. Nick returned and they finally had the hard talk. Phyllis told Nick that Noah left and tried to put of the conversation but Nick insisted they continue. He admitted to Phyllis that he and Sharon slept together again and that he and Phyllis need to separate. He said he wasn’t saying they were "done" but needed time apart. Phyllis first said she wasn’t giving up and they weren’t "done." Phyllis started to question whether or not Nick really ever loved her. He stated that he did but Phyllis said that she felt Nick never moved on from Sharon and used Phyllis to get over Cassie’s death. While Phyllis was losing it Nick just kept staring at her with this dumb look on his face. I’m starting to wonder of the brain cell capacity in this guy’s head. Nick packed a bag and left Phyllis, but not before Phyllis broke down once again yelling at him and again he stood there looking dumbfounded.  

Phyllis called Michael for support but after Michael told her he couldn’t come over to see her she broke down into tears. Meanwhile Nick went over to Victoria’s to stay with her and J.T. When Noah returned home he found Phyllis crying on the couch. When he asked where Nick was Phyllis just told him she didn’t know where he was or when he’d be back.

Sharon/Jack/Michael: Back at Sharon’s room the detective questioned her about the stolen contraband. Sharon denied being responsible for everything and in a panic she called Jack for help. Jack arrived at Sharon’s room and she tried to explain to him the situation. The detective was convinced that Sharon was behind the whole thing and Sharon admitted that it was possible she stole the goods. Jack tried to stop the detective but was unable to and Sharon was arrested.

Jack called Michael to have him come to the police station to help Sharon, but Michael told him he couldn’t. However, Gloria showed up and convinced Michael to leave her with Kevin for a bit. Michael finally agreed but only if Gloria promised to call with any news. After Michael left Gloria convinced the Doctor to let her into the cell with Kevin to comfort him.

Michael arrived at the police station and Jack explained to him the situation. As he talked about the vandalism of Sharon’s "lingerie" I had to shudder. I hope Phyllis washed her hands because with how Sharon’s been sleeping around who knows what she could catch. But I digress…..Jack mentioned the books that Sharon stole and Michael realized that not only had things been stolen from his wife’s store but the books that Eden was accused of stealing were actually the fault of Sharon. After realizing all this he left and told Jack to find another lawyer.

Jack assured Sharon that she would be bailed out of jail and he’d take care of everything. But when he offered to call Nick for her she told him in no.

Michael/Kevin/Gloria/Jeffrey/Jana/Heather: Jeffrey and Gloria went out to dinner at the club to celebrate that Kevin was home and getting the care he needs. Going to the sanitarium Kevin remained locked up and sedated in the padded cell. Jana’s headaches returned with a vengeance as she pleaded with Michael to do something to help her husband. Jana pleaded through the door for Kevin to look at her and was struck with another bout of head pain. Michael could see what it was doing to her so he convinced Jana to go home and get some rest. Jana showed up at Gloria and Jeffrey’s table and explained to them the horrific situation Kevin was in.

Michael was trying to talk to the doctor about why Kevin wasn’t being treated properly when Heather showed up and said she went to the judge and convinced him that Kevin needed to be locked up not helped. (Have I mentioned how much I loathe Heather…because yeah she’s not my favorite character at all)? Heather said she did it because he needed to get what he deserves, which was to be locked up in a cell, not the vacation they were hoping for. She even accused Kevin of faking his breakdown.

Once Gloria was let into Kevin’s room she tried to comfort him with soothing words and happy memories. It was then that Kevin started to hallucinate that he was at Crimson Lights and Gloria’s voice was distorted and she was dressed in a rodent costume. Then he snapped and yelled at Gloria to go away.

Eden/Lauren/Michael: Nick took Eden home and hinted to Lauren that she and Eden needed to discuss something but didn’t tell her what. This left Eden to break it to Lauren that she lost her virginity to Noah. Eden explained why she and Noah ended up at his place. Eden tried to convince Lauren that they were responsible and tried to get her to understand. Lauren tried to be supportive while also trying to explain the consequences of entering into a sexual relationship. She did say that she did not approve of Eden and Noah engaging in sex until they were older.

Michael ended up meeting Lauren and Eden at Crimson Lights and explained to her what happened with Kevin. Lauren insinuated to Michael about Eden and Noah’s night together. Then when Eden came over to them Michael told them that Sharon was responsible for the books stolen that Eden was blamed for.
Coming up tomorrow

  • Victor talks to Colleen about the board
  • Jill warns Murphy that he’s now "swimming with the sharks."
  • Nick asks Phyllis if she had anything to do with Sharon being caught.

Question for debate: Who is annoying you the most at the moment?

  • A: Sharon because her needy nympho klepto overly dramatic woe is me ways are getting really irritating!
  • B: Nick because he’s really acting like an immature moron who isn’t being a very good role model for his son!
  • C: Heather because she’s really putting the capital B in witch and refusing to listen to Michael!
  • D: Phyllis because she keeps losing it and screaming at random intervals.

    Can I vote for everyone but Phyllis? Nick’s a moron, Sharon’s driving me crazy and Heather needs a smack across the head! I’m sure Phyllis will stop yelling when she gets in revenge mode -lol!

    Phyllis!!! She is super annoying. I can’t even watch her anymore. If she isn’t screaming or shrilling, she’s walking around with her eyes popped out.

    I know this sounds horrible but I’m sick of the Kevin storyline. I just don’t care.

    Now if Y&R casting department would hire someone from GH’s casting department we wouldn’t have so many problems. I just don’t get Noah’s attraction to Eden. And I don’t get the nuMac. They need to hire a new casting head.

    And Victoria as someone to go to for advice. What advice can she give unless it’s tips on how to wear bed hair.

    All of the above. Honestly, if these events didn’t involve Michael in some way I WOULDN’T EVEN WATCH. It should be the Michael Baldwin show. All Michael all the time. ; >

    My response would be in this order
    I HATE no LOATHE Heather
    I can’t stand Sharon
    Nick frustrates me but he’s still hot so I forgive a bit
    Phyllis…I love the girl she’s just better at being Phyllis when she’s calmer

    I can’t decide between Sharon and Heather. I just wanna slap them both.

    On another note, Emily O’Brien did an awesome job (and, that top she was wearing looked soo pretty :) ). I was crying when she was talking to Michael…

    I can’t take Heather seriously. She makes me laugh half the time. If I had a shot for every time she said “I talked to my boss….” with her Bun bobbing in the back of her head, I’d be stumbling around my house piss drunk. So who’s annoying me most lately?:? I’m going with choice E which is Tyra. HAHAHA! UGH! that whole Winters Saga is been laying so low I know it’s about to be non-stop in my future. That’s how much Tyra annoys me. She makes Heather the Mole tolorable….

    Phyllis is getting what she deserves. The same way you get somebody will be the same way you lose them! She laid down and spread her legs in a barn for that woman’s husband, like some old wild farm animal, and now Sharon is giving it right back to her!

    HEATHER is the queen of annoying. You would think that after falsely accusing Victor of murder TWICE that she would drop her arrogant, snotty self and realize that, once again, she could be wrong about Kevin. Anyone in her position, with half a brain, knows that there is a lot more to a story than what appears. She should be FIRED!

    Y&R has simply been brilliant the last 2 episodes. Everything from the writing to the acting to the direction has been top-notch, classic Y&R like it hasn’t been done in years.

    Sharon and Nick making love juxtaposed with Phyllis going all old-school on us, cutting up her clothes, tearing the room apart while the slow-mo movements of the ex-spouses touching and caressing each other was dynamic and so rich in character with o dialogue. The genuine shock and glee that Phyllis had when she discovered all the stolen items was pricelss. And just to add one more brilliant touch, when Phyllis wrote “I Hate Myself” on the mirroe was she writing it as “Sharon” or as herself. If you have it saved, go back and re-watch, i think you will be surprised at what you discover. The ambiguity was right on.

    The courtroom scenes were, of course, over the top, but entirely using the story’s needs and characterization to form their each reaction to the proceedings. It is so fabulous to have Katherine actually being the grande dame again, throwing her money around to bail out Amber and looking like a billionairess at the same time. I absolutely adore Murphy. he is the perfect companion for her at this time.

    Christian LeBlanc and Greg Rikarrt need look no farther for their coming Emmy’s. Both of their work has been far and above what you see on most soaps on most days. They blew away the 3 other shows I wacth regularly these past 2 days even outshining the continuing to dissapoint OLTL which is having a real split-personality lately. What show is this again and what happened to Ron C.s intricately woven stories that organically occured leading to shoot offs of new story to come. the show is just filled with stereotypical good and evil. Crystal Hunt has got to be the worst actress I have ever seen on a soap and ther story line is suffocating and other then the ridiculously out of hand serial killer story, this show has totally lost it’s way while Y&R just keeps setting the soap world on fire. Maria Bell and staff must be honored in a big way for doing what no other soap has managed to do. Be relevant, contemporary and still remain the essence of true soap opera. Wathcing Michael walk into the psycho ward of the hospital, remembering it from his Christmas dream was more then genuis, it was perfection.

    Then the whole Noah/Eden having sex story was captured so realistically and creatively and I loved the message that was sent about talking to your parents before or after your first time and explaining that it was real feelings and not just 2 horny teens irresponisbly getting it on. Having Eden talk to Lauren was a great choice and just made me seethe to think that Tracey Bregman is shoved aside most of the time and not given her own story to carry.

    I could obviously go on and on and about the merits and superb levels of quality that Y&R is hitting but I really think the other shows, no matter their budgets, network egos or whatever is standing in their way from creating a multi-generational, family-rooted, relationship-based, character-driven show, really need to take a look at Y&R, their story structure, characters of all ages and how they have responsibly and carfeully trimmed the cast slowly to please the Sony accountants. Brad’s demise was the perfect way to get rid of a veteran actor. His death continues to reverberate with the Colleen staying on the Newman board and Abby’s subtle confusion as to ho to react to Victor and her sudden new fanily. This is the soap opera that is doing what it takes to survive and if daytime does not want to go the way of the dinosaur, they might just want to take a page from Y&R’s playbook and start focusing on character, motivation, complex psychological reactions instead of being plot friven crap-fests that leave no historical mark on the shows or lead to nowhere because the writrs have no where to go but further convolution (GH, DOOL, ATWT, AMC, OLTL (getting closer and closer to the edge) and B&B is just silly-nilly stupidity right now). And I am loving the dialogue on Y&R and cannot wait for Tom Casiello’s first script and on-air credits which i think happens 4/20, not too far away. he should fit in there just fine.

    If Y&R continues the way it has for nthe rest of the year, next year’s Emmy’s(if there is one) wil, be all of their actors nominated against each other and Y&R should be the only show eligable for Best Drama. hee hee. Seriously, Y&R has been my soap for the longest out of any show. “Ryan’s Hope” will always be what i think was the highest artistic acheivement in the genre’s history, DOOL had it’s dynamic years in the 80’s and 90’s and GL was one of the most dramatic, wonderful, loving show I have encountered but no other soap has kept my rapt continued attention through good times and bad so I am happy to see it regain it’s footing and completely reverse what that horrid LML did this show. All of that is water under the bridge now and has been forgotten. Thank you for giving the fans a place to just ramble on about their passion for a dying art form.

    Gloria… was dressed in a rodent costume.

    Are you sure it wasn’t a rodent dressed in a Gloria costume?

    And I would have to say Nick is the most annoying because Joshua Morrow can’t emote to save his life. He should be playing Jason Morgan. Let Steve Burton play Nick Newman.

    Also, I’m sorry but if the head of a woman who killed people because of a tumor in her brain is hurting shouldn’t she be advised to go see a doctor?

    Since A is supposed to be someone having a mental breakdown and are all symptoms of it I will pass. BTW, I am little piss of see it as an option.

    Society always overlook emotional breakdown and assume that it is not a sickness and that people should just get over it.

    So people don’t go see doctors, they try to get over it, and more than you think don’t make it!

    So down from the soap box, I am with KingTV I love Y&R and most of the stories. I hope they will show Sharon getting help and the why she did not go and even do a PSA about it.

    King TV must be my ‘evil’ twin! HA! I agree w/everything said. I even softened to that little Nut Eden this week!! And Mentioning Crystal Hunt ruining OLTL is spot on! I can’t help but to feel ….Personally Offended that I can no longer tolorate Llanview anymore. She’s ruined that show SINGLE HANDEDLY!!! Really – -all done till she’s gone. THANK GOD FOR Y&R!!!

    Best part about the past few shows was seeing Sharon and Nick make love. See, because when I watch them I actually believe they are making LOVE, not just having sex like Phick.

    Phick is disgusting and totally unbelievable so I hope MAB and Co. really end this couple in the weeks to come. And I mean END them. Phyllis and Nick together just doesn’t work.
