Why would Deacon do this to Amber and Co? He was an alcoholic who was pushed into alcoholic by Massimo Marone and off the wagon and into rehab. He would of gotten back at Nick and Ridge, not Amber. I hope that he stays on and hooks up with Phyllis, because both can do a lot of damage to Genoa City.

Maybe Uncle Jamey can put Tracey Bregman's name out in the universe and we might see Lauren more than once a month for 40 secs.

I get that people like what MAB is doing, but instead of seeing them continuously bringing in new characters or characters from other soaps, how about using some of their talented vets that have been backburned or given little to do for most of the year.

I'm so excited to see Deacon in GC. And thank MAB that Sean Kanan doesn't need to return to B&B. Must be great to be on a show that actually worth the word soap opera.

Poor Sean. I would rather see him back at B&B opposite KKL or Lesli Kay or at GH mixing it up w/Laura, Steve, Maurice, & Drew. Don't get me wrong Y&R is a pretty good get, but to have him be involve in this stupid storyline hurts as someone who like him on B&B and heard good things about him on GH.

He should of been going after Ridge and Nick, not the Scooby Doo gang. This doesn't make any sense. Him and Amber was on good terms. I hope that he and Phyllis pair up. Nick is a jacka#$ and SK and MS would be hot together.

If he would return to B&B we all know that he would be paired with Jennifer Gareis. Come on ... these writers over there have Don Diamont and getting Rick Hearst and Lesli Kay has still no guy. And I already see Whip getting a Donna addiction too.

I hope they pair him with Phyllis. Oh what a devilish couple would that be ... and EXTREMELY HOT!!!

And about the Fab4 story ... we don't know how exactly Deacon fits in there ... so I would wait until we see more. I don't really see Deacon going after Amber without a good reason.

I would love for Deacon and Phyllis to hook up. Pretty much anyone, not name Amber, w/Deacon would be a step up. B/c seriously after Brooke and to a lesser extent Jackie are we really suppose to believe Deacon would want Amber?

Yeah Y&R is the best show (sarcasm)..It just keeps adding to its already under used and under valued cast ....Hummmm...That is the way to deal with a budget crisis just in-flat you already cash strapped show with more actors and push the one's already on canvas further to the background. Bill Bell is turning over in his grave, Agnes Nixon getting drunk at Bell's grave site, Douglas Marland is planning a Scourged-like visit to Maria Hell, and Irma Philips is trying to reincarnate herself as the savior of daytime.

If there is a god in heaven do something and now!

Deacon doesn't want to hurt Amber. He wants to hurt Daniel, the man who Amber is in love with! And then suddenly Amber is free and alone again. Deacon was obssesed with Amber for a long time and maybe he saw her in the news and wanted her back. IDK...but I like this twist because I like the fab 4 and I am looking forward to where it goes.

hilarious David...it seems like you were on that Passions ship from start to finish...and why didn't you jump on the sidelines for that show instead of continuing staying (Watching) that sinking ship...well i guess we can say sunked ship now

I am very happy with this news. The problem with Amber is that they haven't utilized her rich history in LA very much. Now they will.

Smitty, as a Passions fan, I found that dig really rude and unnecessary. This is a thread about the Y&R, and possibly the B&B.

Passions is still on. It just took over Y&R's soul. Silver Chipmunks, Scooby Doo art theft mysteries, women talking to stuffed cats, missing bodies in the caskets, shooting yourself up in the eyes to pretend to be blind, dead baby in the womb aka Hysterical Pregnancy, Faking your identity and using someone else's blood to do it, and knowing you watched a character die before your eyes in the hospital only to now be said that he ain't dead. Sounds like Passions to me. All we missing is for Adam's closet to be the door to hell and Tabitha looking into her pot of water narrating everything as she watches it and Endora little's cartoon bubbles popping up to add to the conversation.

Anyone who says now that Passions and Y&R can't be compared has not been watching the same show. It's comparisons abound.

Maria Hell must have bought the rights to Reilly's storyline ideas that never made it Days or Passions.

Yeah, David, I think the out there plots are turning fans off of Y&R. I think that one nutty person(MJ) is ok, but the whole show is getting up there and fans are tuning out. I think that Hogan and Paul needs to go and bring in ED Scott and SSm to bring the show back to reality.

5 years ago Y&R was never like this. They made the occasional attempt at it and when fans didn't like it they ended it. Bill Bell responded to fan dissatisfaction and quick.

Speaking of needles...I remember Doctor Decker on ATWT was killing people with "potassium chloride" in the hospital.

Oh lord the Passions freaks....I mean fans are going to get me.

Alistar it was a joke...calm down...we should be upset about the recession instead of some lame joke about that dead...I mean cancelled Passions

David ur comments usually give me a good chuckle

The Passions thing wasn't a nod to Y&R but was just a way to show how bad it has gotten....lol

David,

No one would ever consider a comparison of Passions to Y&R as a "nod." Nope, a damning accusation is more like it.

We've been down this road.

Y&R is giving this soap fan, what we all claim to have been wanting for years. They are paying homage to history, resurrecting the storied Jill vs. Kay feud, bringing back classic characters like Nina, Phillip and soon their son Phillip IV; finally playing out the Victor/Ashley romance, albeit with a gothic twist, as Nikki finds her independence and a sane relationship with Paul, whose daughter is in love with Victor's son. Classic starcrossed romance is back with Nick and Sharon, but not in a saccharine-sweet way, fraught with conflict from Phyllis whom Nick also loves and Jack,; a teen set tied to three generations of vets and stories that actually hit all the beats. You mentioned us being Y&R "defenders". No, not a Y&R defender, just a fan. I don't feel the need to defend it. I am loving it. I can't wait to watch it just like I can't wait to watch True Blood. That's my opinion, everyone is welcome to their own. I wouldn't care if five million people signed a petition to see Maria flogged in the town square, as long as I am still liking the show, I will rave about it. Now does it have room for improvement? Sure, so does Desperate Housewives and it's a top 10 hit. The Winters storyline needs to be overhauled, which I have blogged about ad nauseum, as have others here at DC. The Kevin/.Amber/Jana/Daniel stuff is becoming a bit too plot driven, and they need a viable Victoria Newman. We talk about these issues all the time, but that doesn't change the fact that 80 percent of Y&R is the best stuff daytime has seen in years.

Y&R is the worse ever. The Adumb story and Heather the DA are terrible. The switch Phillips are awful. The fooling Victor is terrible. I detest the new Ashley Jr. kid. Sharon and Nick are over the top. Mary Jane being Paul's sister is crazy. Nikki wearing those ugly clothes is so sick. Paul and Nikki living in a club is ridiculous. Framing a good employee by a stupid kid that is monitored by the police is so wrong. Jill going back to the wrong side of town to work and owns part of a mansion is stupid. Mac and Billy cheating after all these years is sick, him with a new baby and loving wife. Neil and Tyra is so boring. Michael is always Great.

Ms. C. is about all I can say is a Class act !!

lol Jamey at this rate Rafe will turn out to be a hermaphrodite carrying Adam's child.

I just wish they would go ahead and just cast Juliet Mills as Tabitha on this show so they can at least make some sense of the mess going down in GC.

I'd say 90% is bad.

*The Jill Katherine Feud is a farce. It is not even being built up the way it should. It is one unbelievable contrived plot point after the other. I knew it was going no where after the cake fight.
*A rushed Mac and Billy reunion with an actress that looks too old for the part has no chemistry with Billy Miller.
*A man faking his identity using fake blood he somehow kept in a freezer all this time at the bar no less. (Passions plot)
*2 hands count worth of barely used cast members.
*Gas lighting of Ashley. Let's just say many women are not going for it and they are the target audience.
*Phillip's return has not been the talk of the fab wish list. It was Nina and Dru.
*Of course Neil runs a company behind the scenes.
*Y&R keeps racking of the actors not of color.
*This quad has just had its time and it now it is time to move on.
*Neil still lives in an apartment with a kitchenette, while Sharon and Nick house hunt.
*Somebody goes to jail every month it seems these days.
*Many plots have fallen to the waste side.

And that was just the start of the bad stuff.

This is not the writing of the Bill Bell days. The first 6 months of MB Hell were great. After that it was down hill. Now it looks like an NBC soap and not the critically acclaimed ones of the past.

And let me add that I find more people who say Y&R is sooo great are Men. Not very many women. So there has to be a disconnect between the male viewers and the female viewers.

Women do like the show. Y&R is nothing like a NBC soap. Try again with that. As we say, you can vote with your remote if the show's not your cup of tea.

David,

The Jill and Katherine feud isn't so much a feud as it is their pain of lost love and rejection. Katherine would like nothing more than to have Jill back as her daughter. Jill is beside herself in grief, anger, and rage that she "found" her mother in the person whom she hated most in the world, came to lover her, and then found out that she was wrong. She's lost and is striking out at Katherine.

These two are best example of dysfunctional mother and child relationship on TV. Jill just can't deal with every thing that's happened. She's never been a stable person.

I love seeing these two go at it. I look forward to seeing Katherine and Jill. After watching some of the clips on YouTube that show how diabolical Katherine was to hurt Jill, it makes sense why Jill angry. You're also forgetting that Jill believes that Katherine stole Cane from her. She could forgive Katherine when she was her mother but now, it's just another example of Katherine hurting her.

Seriously, seeing Katherine and Jill together makes me giddy.

Also, I'm ecstatic that Tricia Cast is back. I remember being a kid and watching Y&R with my grandma. Seeing Tricia brings back memories.

And, please, Nina, Katherine, and Jill are the tough broad trio. These are the women who are not dependent on men, who stand on their own, and can fight fire with fire. Nina learned from her experience fighting Jill and Katherine.

Did fans want P3 to return? He's been thought dead for 20 years, so many people didn't think it a real possibility. I'm a little shocked but I'm anxious to hear his explanation for bailing on his family.

David, you have some valid opinions but you don't speak for the majority of Y&R viewers. Y&R's TV ratings might have taken a hit but the show is the 7th most popular on the Internet with 11 million streamed episodes in May. That's a great number.
