HomeTVThe Young and The RestlessDoes Neil Need an Inappropriate Relationship on The Young and the Restless? Luke Kerr December 5, 2012 The Young and The Restless, TV Recap 7 Comments I love Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren’s (Tracy Bregman) parenting. Every time Fen (Max Ehrich) acts out and Michael goes “Hey, hey!”, I smile. The three of them got into a fight over a breakfast intended to help them bond. Both parents realized that Fen has a major crush on Summer. Both Michael and Lauren were shocked when Jamie (Daniel Polo) later told them that he and Fen knew each other and didn’t get along. Lauren picked up on the fact that Jamie might be afraid of Fen. When Fen returned to the coffee house, Lauren tried to smooth things over with Jamie and Fen, but it didn’t go well. Fen started acting like an ass. His mother promptly pulled him aside and told him he was acting jealous. Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Nick (Joshua Morrow) argued about Summer (Hunter King) skipping school. Phyllis tried calling Summer, but she ignored her mother’s call. Summer answered Nick’s call, and quickly found herself being ordered home. At Jabot, Leslie (Angell Conwell) told Neil (Kristoff St. John) she couldn’t accept his job offer because she was thinking about him as a man. She told him it would be inappropriate for them to end up in a relationship if they were working together. Neil finally convinced her that if they had an overwhelming urge to date, he would fire her. Leslie accepted the job. 7 Responses pferrando December 5, 2012 Kinda like they are slowly exploring Avery and Nick, I like the potential pairing of Neil with her. She’s younger, kinda feisty, and by no means a Dru redo. In my wishful world, the two of them become very involved and then the CBS brass (still unhappy with the ratings) finally agree to bring Rowell back. I think they start going up against their ratings period at the beginning of 2013 where the show was trending down, before the ratings rebounded again in Q2. If the ratings don’t hold or increase by Q2 (which would have given Josh and Jill about 6 months), we may see some big changes again.

Dare I saw, the new regime is starting to get things together? Log in to Reply Brando December 5, 2012 [quote=jetty]Caught this episode on SoapNet last night, found it pretty enjoyable.

I have been STRUGGLING with Y&R since MAB’s final episode (and I am not a MAB Fanboy at all)…again, the show has never been the same since Smith/Alden/Scott left…if this new regime flops than Sony better bring back the terrific triumvirate!!

Loved the new penthouse. I cannot wait for the Christmas Party. JFP and Griffith’s are starting to get it together. They are coming in to their own. I like the way they had Kyle and Phyllis make up. They fixed that correctly. Log in to Reply harlee490 December 6, 2012 I loved all the “mother’s day” episode with their children. Doling out advice and love. It was heartfelt, real and nice to see Lauren talking about Scottie. I so enjoyed the episode and multi-generation dynamic with all the parents and kids perspective. It was good.

The writing of motivations on this show SUCK just as much as when Maria was around. Not only is Jabot now a WINTERS family company with Cane already there and Neil being hired and then promptly hiring his 2 NON college degree kids for executive jobs BUT now Neil, a nice guy but so in the mold of an 80’s chauvinist pig! I mean, honestly, he talks to women like their kids and not equals. The pure fact that leslie took the job after admitting she would rather date him and he said if we started dating I’d fire you (basically on both fronts) makes her to be less like the powerful lawyer she was under Vance and more like the simpering fools who find Neil’s dated pick up lines as HOT and SEXY.

I don’t know why people don’t remember this. He was the ONLY one in his generation on that soap to do so on the show without any Soaras’ing.
