Jillian's Y&R Spoilers!

Phyllis: She searches for Sharon. Meanwhile, her rival is close to death.

Lily: Her will is discovered.

JT: He tells Tucker his days of being a rat for him are over.

Heather: She finds a bomb.

Jana: She asks the bank for a loan.

Tucker/Ashley: The rebel billionaire (you can laugh too) fills Ashley in on wanting Beauty of Nature. Ash debates if going up against Victor's worth the headache.

Chance: A life-altering development occurs which prevents him from answering Chloe.

Phyllis: She decides she's going to be the problem solver regarding Nick/Sharon and her own issues.

Emily: Her life turns from bad to just shitty when she gets arrested after finding out her license to practise medicine won't be snatched. Emily's bail is set at $2 million dollars and she finds out from drug enforcement agents someone's been using her prescription pad. Jack and Paul find out Patty is the one behind Emily's misfortunes. Old Smilin' Jack has Michael represent his lady love. The legal eagle finds out Emily's prescription pad has been in use all over the country. Jack offers to pay Em's bail but she shuts him down.

Emily pays her own bail but is flat broke and isn't able to foot the bill for her stay at the GCAC. Jack learns of her predicament and extends an invite to use the Abbott pool house. Emily accepts but lets Jack know she's going to pay rent once she's able to work again. Meanwhile, Emily fills Michael in on her brother Jamie and his drug. Patty has a breakdown at the nut house and is sedated. Later, Paul goes to visit her to get information on Emily's pad but all she keeps saying is "brother." Paul thinks Patty's referring to him.

Billy/Victoria: Their secret marriage is known by all courtesy of Abby. The heiress tells Victor about the nuptials and he's not a happy camper. JT rips into Victoria for being rash and impetuous. Victoria heads over to Billy's trailer where the two hit the sheets. Victor shows up and has a showdown with his daughter and new son-in-law. Victor accuses Billy of marrying Victoria as a means to get revenge.

Billy denies Victor's claims and declares his love for Victoria. Victor demands Victoria head back to the ranch with him and she defies him by refusing. Billy and Victor get into a fight. After he leaves, Billy tries to worm his way out of his claims of loving Victoria. She gets embarrassed and shuts herself in the bathroom. He cajoles her out and the two have a tender moment regarding staying hitched. Later, Michael finds out their marriage isn't legally binding..

Chloe: The fashionista's not thrilled to learn Billy is married. She shows her feelings to him with five fingers and a palm (a slap).

Abby: The Newman/Carlton/Abbott heiress shoots down Ashley's suggestions regarding her reality show. Meanwhile, Ashley gets nervous about going to court over Abby's trust fund. Abby attempts to sneak her hidden camera in the proceedings but winds up getting busted. Her producer Kent comes through for her by giving her glasses with a camera built in. Abby gets pissed when the judge sides with her parents regarding her trust.

Nick/Phyllis: The Newmans visit Patty to find out what she knows regarding Adam and Richard Hightower. Patty flips when she spots Phyllis. She calms down and tells Nick about there being two Adams. Things starts to look bleak for Nick when Owen the D.A decides to speed up Nick's trail and wants Heather to look into Frank's attack. Heather on the other hand tells Michael she wants to assist him with Nick's case. Nick tells Victor about his chat with Patty.

Victor/Sharon: The black knight pledges to figure out who's responsible for Adam's "death" and decides the truth lies with his body. He and Sharon get news they aren't able to claim Adam's "body."

Cricket: Yeah I still call that and what of it? She returns this summer to help Chance.

Where was Cricket last year when Phillip Chancellor returned from the dead?? Or the past few times that Danny came to town to visit?? I don't understand the purpose of her returning now. The only character who I am looking forward to seeing her interact with is Nina.....and maybe Katherine. Timing is everything, and this doesn't seem like the proper time for her to return. I have never liked Christine anyway. She's quite possibly the most ANNOYINGLY self-righteous character in Y&R history. Haven't missed her ONCE since she left. Hopefully, she's lightened up over the years and developed a sense of humor.

Another female character in danger/close to death---less than a month after the stupid Jana/Lauren kidnapping storyline??? In the past six months, there has been an UNNERVING amount of depravity and darkness flowing through Genoa City, so seeing another female character fighing for her life is not exactly what I wanna see from this show right now. It's all so damned heavy-handed and contrived. If I wanna be depressed and pushed to the verge of jumping off a building, I will simply look at my last 401K statement. LOL!!!

Emily, Emily, Emily...despite all the continued Sturm und Drang that your character is going through, I still find it damn near impossible to care about you. I'd hate to think it's you....perhaps some personality might help matters?? Hogan? Maria? Are you guys listening??? Cardinal rule of storytelling----develop the character BEFORE you push them head first into one heavy storyline after another. And make sure that the character is INTERESTING. Two strikes already.

Billy and Victoria's marriage isn't legally binding?? Why didn't I see this coming??(heavy sarcasm!) Why can't the marriage be LEGAL?? That would help to prolong the tension between the Abbotts and the Newmans, since Billy and Victoria are showing no signs of REALLY wanting to end the marriage. Wanna bet that Billy and Victoria will end up remarrying soon for the SECOND time just to piss everyone off and be defiant??

If they need another attorney, why couldn't they bring back John Silva?!

Noooo more Billy and Vicki. This is cruel and torturous punishment. The chemistry is so thick you can cut it with a knife. I have got find something to do during the day time hours. I love seeing JT pretent that he love that homely woman(Mac) with no class and no spunk. I would love to see her with duel personalities, and dressed like Amber. Mac can't attract the chipmunk. I would be angry with Vicki if I was Thad. While she is with a hunk Billy he is with someones Mother. The only person I can see Mac with is Paul, or Victor, or Bartwell. Another great story line in the trash.

 Boy, it just SUCKS to be Emily. She was a successful and somewhat happy woman, until she set foot on GC. That poor, poor woman, on the upside I'm starting to really like her.

Mn, Adam wouldn't go all Kimberly Shawn on the GC's residents, if it would hurt Sharon, but then who? Boy, it also sucks to be Heather, though nothing sucks more than to be Sharon, every other week her life, or sanity, is in danger. I must say, I'm enjoying Phyllis ans Sharon weird friendship.

So is Cricket going to somehow be Jills sib?  That's supposed to be coming up.  There must be some reason they are bringing her back, unless it's for Paul.
She's a lawyer, maybe she is related to Tucker?  Ok. I'm tired of guessing, lol
I wish we would see more of Nikkie & Nina.  Ok, I'm done for now.

Chloe and Billy are chemistry personified. Together they are dynamite. These two don't really work with anyone else on the show right now.....Elizabeth Hendrickson could teach Amelia a thing or two about being tough yet vulnerable....And the actor playing Chance is more wooden than a clapboard house. Was he this way on Guiding Light?

First and Foremost, Welcome Back DC Con....OMG, I was outta my mind last week. Thankfully, I knew via the Tweets, it was just a temporary glitch.

1) I never liked Doctor Pee, now I just find her annoying. ZZZZ. I don't care about her Ugly Bangs, Stolen Perscription Pads, or where she lives. Bring back PATTY! Smile

2) I. Love. Billy. And. Vicky. THE MONEY COUPLE! (aside from Phyl and Sharon, who like BabyC , I enjoy)

3) Cricket. See #1 above. Maybe Pee and Cricket (and Wooden Mac) can be friends. Contain the snores together in the same boring storyline. Yet Mr. Brooks spoilers said that Cricket, The Bug will return and - - -Represent Adam. How in the F that happens, who knows.

4) I also heard a SPOILER (you're warned!) that Jana sleeps with Ryyyydah and THEN gets her memory back. But, of course.....she's pregnant. The only upside to this news is that we still don't have any Daisy-and-her-teeth Sightings (knock wood, knock wood, knock wood!)

5) NuAbby is the NuAmber. Cute little trouble maker. But man, do I love her!
Heather Stevens: C'mon. CHANCE?? Really? I mean....REALLY?
Keep Rafe around!! That kid has a personality now!

Finally 6) I'm sure MURPHY is Jill's daddy. BAH! That'll make her Kay's "Daughter" after all!

Y&R suck so much these days. Not even the spoilers are pulling me in anymore.
I think this show is heading in the direction of soaps grave yard.
Billy/Victoria was basically my last straw, because they are on every effing day. Why the fuck they dont recast Victoria with someone who could at least do something.

Big AL,  Loved your column so much today, that I am even going to forgive the profile pic,  but just for today.  Really nice to read something,  that I don't have to guess at.  You do not have any misspelled words that leave me guessing.  I guess though,  no one else has spell check.  Keep up the good work.

Loved Jazzy's stuff,  except for lack of use of spell check,  but thought it was an outstanding review of the listed ones.

I really don't know where some of these ideas regarding Jill's parents and siblings come from around here but they certain don't make much sense (even in this world).

I do think that the new Abby is bringing a badly needed breath of fresh air to Y&R but something really really bugs me about the way she exposed the Billy/Victoria "marriage". No one should treat close relatives in that manner for basically no reason. If she even knows and had thought about it she could have just mentioned to the judge how she came to be. That might have been more distasteful for the judge and she could have had her money. I guess the stolen sperm and the test tube beginnings for her has affected the now double aged sweet little Abby more than we know (and we know what happened to Barbara Carrera - cross check her and Rock Hudson out in IMDB for reference). Regarding that B/V marriage, I also think that it should continue for a number of interesting scenarios.

The one who does continue to bug me more and more these days is Victor. He would not bug me as much if he weren't such a hypocrite in his personal and legal dealings. It would be quite funny if Abby were the one to cause the start of his much needed downfall. Hans Gudgast is no help here either and seems very disassociated lately. His line readings are even more awful and it is painfully obvious that the producers are placing them wherever he can possibly read them (yes read then, not act them). No wonder Peter Bergman gets pissed off that Hans contractually gets the last word.

The most silly new predicament these days is why Emily is being persecuted for something that should be obvious she could not possibly have been involved in. I hope that does not go on for too long.

Have I rambled enough yet?
