[SPOILER] is KIDNAPPED on Young and Restless!





Billy/Victoria: The Abbotts marriage starts to spiral downward during Victoria's trip to Miami. Billy tries to get in touch with his wife, but gets sent straight to voicemail! Billy's worries turn to fears when he can't find Victoria, and discoveres she's been kidnapped by an ex-gambling friend!

It seems Billy never paid his debt before his old pal was hauled off to prison and he wants his money stat. A guilty Billy jumps into action to get his woman back. Will Victoria forgive her husband…again? Look for this latest development to be fuel for Victor and Nick's anti-Billy fire.

Chelsea/Adam/Sharon: The con finds a purse at the cottage and starts to grill her husband over it. Adam keeps mum on the owner, resulting in Chelsea taking yet another trip back to the cottage. She gets a shock when she finds Sharon inside. Chelsea starts to accuse the pair of having an affair, but Adam insists he's just platonically helping her out. Sharon decides it time for her to leave, seeing what her presence is doing to Chelsea and Adam's marriage, but Adam balks at her suggestion.

Things don't look good for Sharon when Ronan takes on the arson case. Det. Malloy starts to zero in on Sharon, after her weird behavior throws up red flags. Adam asks Chelsea to help him assist Sharon. At first she doesn't want to lift a finger to help, but later caves. 

Chelsea later warns Sharon that she'd better not being using her latest peril to worm her way back into Adam's life, or there will be hell to pay!

Nick/Phyllis: The two head to court.

Michael/Lauren: The Baldwins ask their son to shed some light on his friendship with Summer.

Paul/Christine: The former couple receive some pleasant news.

    I don’t know what to think about Victoria’s kidnapping yet. Yeah Billy has a past with gambling but he’s supposed to be wealthy. If he owes someone money, wouldn’t they threaten him first instead of kidnapping his wife!?

    The Chelsea/Adam/Sharon triangle is starting and it doesn’t look good for Chelsea. I expect her to go crazy sooner or later.
    I only hope that a possible Shadam reunion – which I’d like – doesn’t get in a way of Sharon FINALLY getting better.

    Make that Phyllis/Nick divorce final. Please!

    So is Fen suppose to be gay or not? Or are they maybe still trying to go there with Noah? I got the feeling when he left that voice mail to someone after getting a text with “I miss you”.

    Wow at Victoria being kidnapped. Didn’t see that one coming at all. I guess it makes sense she would be a target — daughter of a billionaire mogul, wife of a millionaire playboy, and she is pretty known for her own wealth as well.

    Though it would have been more interesting if Johnny was kidnapped. Talk about all that drama!

    I wonder if Jack and Billy will squash their issues now that Victoria is in danger? Or will Jack not care? We all know Victor will be out for blood.

    Chelsea helps Adam with Sharon? Girrrrrrrl. She is better than me. LOL

    I am liking the direction “Y & R” is taking – the plotting is more coherent, the characters’ actions are making more sense and the storylines are actually keeping my attention. The pacing, along with the quick-cuts from scene to scene, are helping in terms with my attention span.

    The Sharon/Adam/Chelsea story is going along nicely – watching Sharon losing it while being cut off & hidden is ideal if this character is to redeem herself from that last & final bout of Maria Arena Bell silliness. How much this will affect Adam & Chelsea’s relationship is going to be ‘watch & see’.

    Also looking to see how Jack’s surgery pans out – he was up and about WAY too soon after being shot by crazy Patty, so I hope there are plans for him to deal with the aftermath in a more realistic way, unlike in MAB’s world!

    Vicki being kidnapped out of the blue should be interesting and make for good story down the line, since it is because of Billy’s past that she has become the victim.

    Adios Genevieve and Heather – I hope I don’t have to lay eyes on your one-note grating characters even again…!!

    YAY! Jess Walton’s back as Jill – WELCOME BACK!!

    I haven’t had this much excitement during sweeps period for Y&R in years. Ahhhh! Josh is going there and busting up Villy I like the idea. It shakes up the canvas for characters to grow. Johnny is a Abbott but Victoria is legally his mother and she takes an Abbott baby to raise as a Newman!

    Today truly launched stories busting loose during sweeps. Today had everything, more characters gone, LOVED the Jack & Billy arguing and whole angst family dynmaic. :love: Diggin’ on Jack & Phyllis. I’m enjoying MS going back in character as the catty, bitchy, snide Phyllis. They are dressing her in those skin tight dresses again. Loved the ending and Victoria kidnapped and Victor won’t be happy! |( When Chelsea discovered Sharon was priceless. I loved how Nick is defending and standing up for Sharon when it is all said and done. This time Nick & Nikki clashes. He’s thinking of his children’s mother… :love: :love: But the best part of the day was Jill Foster Abbott Fenmore walked through those doors. She’s back…the bitch is back! ;) :love: :love: :love:

    My Jill Foster Abbott is back and nobody does it like Jill. :) I’m ecstatic and Friday’s US episode was incredible. (at least to me)

    Also glad to see some friendly conversations. Y&R hasn’t had friends in quite a while. Paul and Lauren’s scene was nice, and Chloe/Chelsea’s friendship is shaping up nicely too.

    I loved today’s episodes, with all the ( spoilers )….. I love it that Chelsea and Chloe have bonded, seems like Chelsea may be around awhile.

    I see Phyllis has moved on, and what a bitch that BIG RED can be!!

    The best news was who walked in the door once Genevive walked out….

    JILL!!!

    I don’t care for the new Summer (didn’t like the old one, either, of course). Her voice is annoying, she looks more like Sharon than Phyllis and she’s not a good actress. I say try another recast.

    I thought the one previous to this, was a much better actor. Definitely finer looking, but looked like Nick should have been asking her out on a date, instead of scolding her.

    Chelsea has to stick with guns about Sharon. Dont back down to ditzy Sharon. I hate the way Adam is being written now. Instead of being there for his wife, he’s lashing out and helping Sharon.

    Btw, what was the storyline reason Genevieve left? I say this, because I missed the part where Genevieve left. I thought she couldnt leave because she had someone following her?

    I think there may be too many stories involving the younger generation starting up. I much prefer adult stories about adult characters. But then of course new Noah is 27.

    Still not sure much has improved quite yet but it is possible good things are on the horizon. However Victoria does not need to be kidnapped except as a catalyst to push things in different directions; most disturbingly to push daughter back into daddy’s loving arms.

    Too many characters now leaving too suddenly but at least Jill is storming back in. But still, where is Nina?

    Still don’t care much for Ronan.
    Wish Jack could be a bit more understanding and forgiving.
    Really am hating Phyllis more and more each day.
    Nikki too, but she’s going to have to eat very big crow soon.

    Yes the new Summer looks so much like Sharon! I agree that the other one was a much better actress. Please leve Amelia alone–she was supposed to fill big boots yes but she is a different Victoria and I have grown to like her. I also love Niki and she has every right to detest Sharon(I do too). No Sahron and Adam pleaseeeeeee! Y&R IS ALREADY much improved.

    Oh Yes, the original bitch is back—and I love it! Go Jill.

    yojoromo4469 … it’s quite easy to do a double post here especially if your device does not appear to be responding. You can only delete the text of the post not the post itself (as harlee490 mentioned). It seems that only certain individuals can delete posts or an entire thread they have created if they have made an embarrassing mistake.

    (But come on … don’t you think you’re yet again being extremely hypercritical and schoolmarmish???)

    Yeah, I’ve gotten the distinct impression of late with the way Noah’s been dancing around whatever happened in NY, coupled with that text, that he’s hiding something that he’s not exactly ready to share with the family. Plus, supposedly the new character(a cop I think)they’re about to bring on is out of NY and apparently somehow tied to Noah so I’m thinking he’s the one who sent the text.

    When are you going to stop referring to Chelsea as “The Con?”
    Adam, Chloe, Billy, Cane…and many more…have all been “cons” at one point or another, yet Chelsea is the only one you refer to that way?

    No, I don’t like to way Chelsea was brought on the show, but she has been redeemed quite well and she and Adam are my favorite couple right now. I just hope Sharon butts out and lets them get back to being a happy couple.

    I’m also liking the friendship Chelsea and Chloe are forming and hope that continues. There are so few female “friends” on the soaps…it’s nice to see.

    @SZima–totally agree regarding Chelsea(and also love Chelsea/Adam and Chelsea/Chloe). Out of all the refugee soap vets that MAB brought on(Genie Francis, Debbi Morgan, Maura West, etc.)to try and enhance the canvas, I’d argue MCE’s Chelsea is the only one that’s been anything resembling a modest success(though I do think Jennifer Landon, despite the epic fail-of-a-pairing with Daniel, has been excellent as Heather despite lazy writing and zero character growth thanks to MAB and now the current regime, who obviously don’t want to deal with her). Either way, hoping they don’t dismantle Adam/Chelsea before they get going.

    While the kidnapping story seems right out of Maria’s writing bag, I can DEAL with it provided it’s the only violent thing we see for several months. I never am a fan of this type of writing. I think my Mr. Bell maybe had one story at the most PER YEAR like this. Let’s see how quickly this gets resolved.

    But for the most part it seems like things are settling down. (High five)

    I also like Chelsea tedew, she’s been written well, even by the prior regime. I hope she and Adam stick it out some how. I don’t think anyone ever can really justify an Adam and Sharon pairing based solely on the fact that NO mother would forgive someone for him doing what he did. Sorry.

    And finally this arson crap needs to be dropped, just like Phyllis’ case. Am I right?

  20. Avatar of harlee490
    harlee490

    I’m curious maybe the kidnapping story isn’t going to be about the violence but a way to use Billy’s past finally catching up and putting turmoil in their relationship. It’s about time to shake those two up and give Victoria & Billy fresh blood and new love interest for awhile. I love to see a custody fight over Johnny and this time Victoria wins. This could create lots of story down the road and once again a Newman\Abbott child caught between the families.

    Pferrando you right Bill didn’t have more the one violence type story going on at time. His set up took usually a whole year or two to define the character’s motives. By then you wanted the character to get their justice and they did by Bill Bell. Giving fans a very satisfied ending on the story. >)

    pferrando … I imagine the arson crap will be dropped if indeed Sharon is discovered to have a brain tumour. That’s a good excuse to let someone off not responsible for their actions. Phyllis is completely responsible for her past actions and her actions in trying to cover it up and blame everyone else.

    If Victoria and Billy become a non item and a custody battle ensues, then it would be extremely amusing to me to have Chelsea stake a claim.

    Here comes the MOB sters!!! I knew it wouldn’t take long. Now instead of Sonny, we get Eddie. (Thats your Latino character waiting in the wings!!)

    And oh my! Is the Chancellor mansion (set) the next to go up in flames? While I agree the sets are filthy (check-out the Abbot living room, tables scratched, dusty, chair arms and back dirty), please don’t give Y&R the “Avery quick-set” makeover!! I mean, I’m glad Avery is being meshed-out and now has a home but orange curtains pulled back to create a dining room ain’t gonna do it for Victor and Ms. C!!!

    Most of you begged and pleaded for the end of MAB. Betcha didn’t think that when Jill came aboard, you’d get General Hospital West Coast – horribly, cheap sets, mobsters, and fast paced storys. Remember, Y&R has always been known for slow and character based story-telling. I remember when Lorie’s and Leslie’s arguments over Lance Prentiss would take one week to get through, all in one scene. That was one of the things that set Bill Bell’s Y&R apart from the typical soap of the day. Just as soaps (take GL) have tried something new, Bill Bell did with Y&R’s debut and it worked! Just waiting to see how much more it will change now.

    Harlee…don’t you miss that? And the thing that I also liked about the villians of days gone by is that you hated to admit that you “liked” them (or saying it another way), they were a “good” psycho, meaning well written. Sheila Carter is the perfect example, especially when she first came on.

    If MAB could have chilled out a bit she did have two potentials in Patty and then Ricky, but they were totally misused and poorly written, over and over.

    I also like the idea of mixing up some of the couples, like Billy and Vic, and Lilly and Cane. So I do think Josh has some good ideas. Hopefully they are true to the Y and R formula.
