Jack Abbott Makes Moves Like Jagger on The Young and the Restless


Victor’s (Eric Braeden) former office sans self-portrait was a thoroughfare of traffic as Neil (Kristoff St. John), Billy (Billy Miller), Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Abby (Marcy Rylan) all paraded in and out of Jack’s (Peter Bergman) new corporate digs. In his continued good mood, Jack offered Neil the job of Jabot CEO and Phyllis a position at Newman. He also turned down Abby’s 500 million dollar proposal to return Newman Enterprises to Victor.

While it was Jack who was making moves like Jagger, Billy wasn’t happy to discover his brother had offered Neil the top job at Jabot. Billy told Jack that it is their family’s company and he should be in charge of it. When Jack pushed back and said he wanted Billy to help him build a new Abbott legacy, I noticed Billy did his best to hide his anger.

After lunch with Katherine, (Jeanne Cooper) Neil called Jack to tell him that he would accept Jack’s offer.

Victoria told her father and mother (Melody Thomas Scott) that Billy went to work with Jack, so she could have eyes and ears in the company. Victor warned her that Billy is an Abbott, but she insisted her hubby would do what needed to be done to help them.

Noah (Robert Admanson) had a mysteriously vague conversation with someone back in New York. I had to wonder if it had anything to do with this casting news. I guess time will tell.

Phyllis and Ronan (Jeff Branson) shared a chemistry-laden moment at Kevin’s (Greg Rikaart) coffee shop. Later, Phyllis arrived at Avery’s (Jessica Collins) house and discovered Nick (Joshua Morrow) playing chess with her sister.

Nick met up with his family and told them he would not be a part of their plan to regain control of Newman Enterprises.

    After seeing the casting of that GH actor and the fact that he has a mysterious ast in NYC and that Noah has been hesitant to reveal his reason for coming back to the GC from NYC, I posted on here on another topic that I think they are going to make Noah gay.

    It would be fantastic NOT only because Noah is such a strong character but also because he has been well established as the everyday guy. He plays music, sports, has a slew of male friends and has dated women but never commited to them.

    It will be great to see if they follow through on a topic that deserves to be told. Granted, with Sharon first having to be changed back to the old Sharon we may not see Noah out of the closet for several months.

    I have my doubts that Noah will reveal he’s gay. But he does seem to have some sort of secret and ending with Eden that needs to come to light. And just exactly where did he come to possess his sophisticated bartender skills?

    Phyllis in today’s episode displayed yet another vulgar over the top public rant against Christine. Isn’t that shrill smug constant blame shifting by that guilty party getting just a bit beyond annoying by now? And they say Sharon is Genoa City’s current fruitcake.

    I wonder if they might be heading into a possible bisexual story? I’m not sure Noah could be gay but first rule never assume. I thnking maybe Carmine? There’s been no news about him leaving and with Abby soon exiting and he has played a bisexual in other projects…….hmmm?

    I’m liking Neil being CEO for Jabot. Neil worked there for years as an executive but during Victor’s ownership of Jabot. I’m also questioning a possibility that Josh could be starting a new rivalry between Billy & Neil. Billy being the Abbott and gets obession about getting Jabot as like Jack was obessioned. Neil needs a good rivalry to show Neil’s business side, slightly more of aggressive Neil. He’s worked with the best of the sharks. I would like to see a side of Neil in business. It would tarnish some of his boy scout image. ;) This lays the ground work of Neil maybe starting his own business or sharing the CEO position.

    As far as Billy betraying Jack, I think when push comes to shove Billy will have a hard time it’s his brother and Abbotts are fiercely loyal and this could be what will break-up Villy. Victor will come calling to collect on Billy’s secret or he will tell Victoria…which Victor does tell Victoria. Billy can’t do that to Jack in the end. This could be great family drama between the Abbotts & Newmans. Ugly, child custody fight, Victoria won’t lose another child again and takes Billy to court. Then maybe we could see a good redux of Neil/Victoria. It could be fresh and their is history there and with no Dru this could actually give Neil a solid relationship again and marrying into the powerful Newman family…Victor wouldn’t have a problem w/Neil, he’s very fond & respectful of Neil but maybe not so w/Nikki.. ;)

    As for Victoria I wondering if Josh is setting up the ground work showing a whole different side of Victoria. It has always been stated (since HT days) Victoria is more like Victor then any of his children. Nick always more like Nikki and doesn’t want to fight but Victoria will fight it alone with Victor’s help ;)

    I love to watch Phyllis and actually like the character…MOST of the time. But that scene in the coffee shop was way too over the top. No grown woman would/should act that way in public, I don’t care how upset she is. Of course Phyllis has never been known for her subtlety! (On the other hand, I hate The Bug and I wanted to slap her silly too.)

    I think both Phyllis and Sharon could do with a stint in the nut house.

    I don’t think Noah is gay. I was pretty sure they were going there with the old actor. He was dropping some major hints but then they canned him and hired a guy known for being the teen hunk on TV shows.

    I think the the cop from NY is involved with Noah, but I think it is because he is looking for his sister. They also sent out a casting notice for a 20-something Hispanic female. She is suppose to be a singer. And she is suppose to have a brother. Connecting the dots…

    My guess is that wannabe music man Noah met some NY wannabe singer [casting calls her "Ariana"]. They broke up and she will roll into town causing trouble. Then her NY cop brother comes to town looking for her.

    Aaaaand more drama for the Newmans.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else annoyed by the loud new guitar ridden background music/scoring they’ve adopted? There was a scene (yesterday?) with Nick and Avery where they had it blaring the entire time. It didn’t fit the scene and was soooo distracting.

    I don’t mind some of the more modern stuff, but Y and R has so much recognizable and beautiful music they’ve used over the years. Let’s not fix what’s not broken Jill!

    It is getting so good in GC. I am impressed with the way these new stories are coming about. The first few days of the new regime were kind of to the left. Now they are on the right track. The product is getting great. Great camera angles, great acting from Sharon Case and Peter Bergman. The scene with Victor and Jack in the Newman offices today were great. Great set usage. I’m impressed. Yes we do need a strong gay character, stronger than Will.

    I hope a good strong gay character comes too.

    But if it does happen … warnings to SoapGirl; you might want to invest in a larger vomit bucket.

    This latina wannabe singer story sounds incredibly LAME. I hope this isn’t the story for Noah. This doesn’t sound like drama, and the Newmans wouldn’t care one bit. The “Noah is gay” scenario sounds way better. And the Newmans would take notice.

    If A Good Strong Gay Character Comes, I Hope It Is On A Different Show.
