Was Shagging Ronan a Mistake For Phyllis on The Young and the Restless?



Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) put a dimmer on their afterglow, by telling a still-sweating Ronan (Jeff Branson) their tryst was a mistake on today's episode of The Young and the Restless. Later, they  questioned Kevin (Greg Rikaart) about the possibility of Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) blabbing their secrets. Meanwhile,  Cricket (Lauralee Bell) and Michael (Christian LeBlanc) were putting things together, regarding the night Kev helped Red move her dead, horny, ex-shrink's body.

A desperate Sharon (Sharon Case) pleaded with Avery (Jessica Collins) to get Victor (Eric Braeden) to drop the charges.  Little did Sharon know, Tucker (Stephen Nichols) was offering up Beauty of Nature in exchange for her freedom.

Victor ageed to Tucker's terms, but only if Sharon gave him an anulment and dropped her abandonment lawsuit. Shortly after Sharon signed off on the pact, Victor discovered she’d sold off enough of his personal stake in Newman to make him vulnerable to a takeover. Considering Jack (Peter Bergman), Genevieve (Genie Francis), Abby (Marcy Rylan) and Tucker all tagged and grabbed Newman stock as it tumbled, The Black Knight could be in serious trouble.

I don't care about Phyllis and Ronan at all. Linking him romantically with Phyllis in a pairing that is going nowhere is a waste of a legacy character.

I am interested a little bit in how Victor will regain control of his company.

Phyllis and Ronan are hot, hot, hot! If it was a mistake then it's one she needs to keep making Smile I hope she and Nick are finally done for good or at least for a long time so she can move onto a relationship with Ronan. Hopefully it won't be dropped when the new writer's material kicks in on Friday.

It was a mistake to marry Nick again ... but sleeping with Ronan was maybe the best thing Phyllis has done for herself in months.

I feel like the scripts have already been partly rewritten. I don't know ... the show is much more watchable than what we saw the weeks before.
The storylines still ain't brilliant but the actors seem a lot more focused again. Great scene between Eric Braeden and Sharon Case. Both actors put a lot into it.

Oh and Tucker all of the sudden has his heart back. lol
What a change in attitude. Last week he wanted to take over the Newman empire by using Sharon, this week he's selling Beauty of Nature to rescue her from prison. Feels like a change is coming ...

I don't think it was a mistake,just Phyllis being Phyllis.Getting what she wants from someone,then being done with them,screw their feelings.And,it will be all Ronan's fault when she finds out about Summer seeing them,and Nick finding out.If this is not some covert plan on Ronan's part,he,too,will deserve everything that happens to him.Michael and Chris putting the pieces together might just land him an adjoining cell to Phyllis.

As for Victor,if he has to finally ask his kids for help,it may make him a better person.Don't think that will happen,but,it should be interesting.

By my count, Phyllis and Sharon have slept with the exact same number of men (11 or 12). So why is it that Sharon is the one who frequently gets called a slut?

I want to see Phil with someone else besides Nick, and I think her and Ronan are a great match.

The only scene I didn't like today was the wasted one between Summer and Abby. It felt out of place and odd. So maybe that was a new script thrown in OR it could be an old one. Just didn't fit.

It'll be interesting to see Friday's which will be the new writing.

I agree. The scene felt like they were trying to say something but ended up saying nothing at all. WEIRD! And it really was the weakest link of the episode (maybe because of that scene it was decided that Abby has to go and Summer has to be recasted. Wink )

I don't really give a rats about Phyllis anymore. The only amusement I get when she's on screen is when she's letting the Bug have it. Otherwise the character is very close to unwatchable imo.
As for Ronan, it's another absolute waste of legacy character (& actor for that matter) that actually had some potential before Phyllis imho - albeit not always tapped into, but it was there. Now I see no potential or point of the role on canvas.

OK ... Ronan may be hot but I still don't think that Phyllis and Ronan are hot hot hot. There's still something very mechanical about Phyllis when she's "with" anyone.

(rozzberry ... I'm not quite sure exactly what the definition of a legacy character is these days, but I'm quite sure that Ronan's name would not be in the Wikipedia explanation of it all.)

I am still extremely worried that Phyllis is not going to have to pay due diligence, reap her just rewards ... whatever for her misdeeds. Christine is still being portrayed as the vengeful angel and all investigation is being mishandled. Michael should not even be on the case and Ronan should be up on dereliction of duty charges. It could be all used in Phyllis' favour. Hopefully something will rear it's ugly head against her very soon. So, if they need that rug to do it; just call in Murphy and his helicopter and the gang!

I'm still liking Sharon's current strength and resolve. But really, how on earth could those documents be ready for signing within minutes of her leaving the cafe where Avery Two Face got her orders to prepare them?

I'm loving this story. 1. It's fresh and has legs. 2. Phyllis (Bill's) always made serious mistakes. Again, reacted not thinking how it would effect her family. I'm started to see Phyllis I know and this Phyllis MS plays with much more depth than a heroine in peril.

Summer said Aunt Ashley. Aunt Ashley?

Jack's her father - that makes Ashley her aunt. Wink No but Ashley is her somewhat great-aunt ... referring to her as "Aunt Ashley" isn't that far off even if they should have left it out. As I said they tried to tell us something but it just didn't work.

As for Ronan a legacy character... Wait what!? He's not a legacy character. Not in the sense of the word.

I don't think there is a hard and fast definition of a legacy character but I take it to mean a character who is in the third or fourth generation of a family that's been part of the core of a show for decades, like Billy Abbott, Summer Newman, or Mackenzie Browning.

The only people Ronan is related to are Nina and Chance so I think that disqualifies him from being a legacy character.

Summer is not related to Ashley in any way. Nick and SyPhyllis are her parents, right? Someone correct me if I'm missing something. I know that it's a possibility that Summer is really Jack's, but until they say it in plain writing...................

Exactly ... that Summer could be Jack's spawn has only been speculation in here (I believe). Besides, has she not had enough health crises to have any blood issues called into question by this point?

Summer is Jack's. Period. Trust me. Josh is going to bring it out of hiding.

I dont like Ronan as Phyll's fire-truck buddy.

From your lips to Soap Gods ears...hey mon! I have always thought Summer was Jack's child. I for one like Pack so much better then Phnick. MS has more chemistry w\PB wear it works. I'm not saying MS\JM doesn't have some chemistry but not like with PB. Phyllis is more adult and herself with Jack then Nick. Nick has a certain expectations on Phyllis where Jack accepts Phyllis more readily as Phyllis.

harlee490 -- Aint that the truth? Phyll is so much better with Jack. Complete and happy, they are almost like a Tag-team from nostalgia, good for each other. Phack/Pack is a great couple, whereas Phick is always Phyllis trying to have Nick lover her. Today, Nick went right for Bobble-head when he saw Ronan come out of that shower.

I would like for Summer to be Jack's, but that would be interesting how they would explain what Nick's motive was for saying Summer was his:

Was this child a replacement for Cassie?

Did he really want SyPhyllis that bad?

Was the sex that good?

However,if you were to recall, at that point he still wanted to stay with Sharon? It was Sharon that gave him the boot.
