I'm a couple of days behind so I need to grab a martini and catch up, especially after reading everyone posts.

There is some bickering going on with you all, but I love reading everyone's opinion and take on what's working and what's not. Innocent Evil Tongue

I didn't hate 100% of what MAB threw up on our screens, but I do like what Josh is bringing. We are in so much better shape, and I can't wait to see what the ratings are like over the next month or two when the show really started losing viewers (a year ago).

I guess you're forgetting that Nick helped raise Cassie (not his child) for many years.

Dan, if U happen to be replying to me, that was a different situation altogether. He was married to Sharon and Cassie was his step daughter. If Jack ends up being her father, then Nick, in a sense, kidnapped her, as he is the only one that saw the paternity test, which with Jack in reality that would never have happened. He would have insisted on seeing the results, as would Phyllis. It is just a very stupid idea.

Nick didn't even accept Cassie at first! He was a jerk to her!

Nathan, you have that exactly right and that would be one more reason, that I find it unbelieveable that Nick would have wanted to raise Summer, if she was really Jack's. If Summer was Jack's, then maybe about 10 years ago, this would have been an ok storyline.

This would make a great soapy story...Jack delivered Summer, Jack isn't exactly a stranger to Summer growing up around him.

As for Nick had amnesia so maybe he never "purposely" kept the results secret. Maybe he doesn't remember. This time Phyllis in reverse didn't know the truth...lets of story and drama. Wink

I hope Josh goes there w\this story.

Oh.. I'm sorry. I thought STORM OF THE CENTURY referred to Katherine Chancellor MURPHY hitting Murphy when he startled her by showing up at dinner.
_________________

I really hate the poor driving conditions story. Like someone said, Lily will find her way to a cabin... likely with the amnesia that they catch like the flu in GC. We've had so many accidents, miscarriages, bandaged heads and forgetfulness over the past few years.

I, too, have not forgotten that lame DISASTER story at Clear Springs. Wasn't the sole outcome Victoria going into a coma and giving birth while out? Amelia has never come out of that coma as far as I'm concerned.

What the story could use right now (and of course, I know best) is for Gloria and Bardwell to go out in the blizzard, and have Jeffrey die so she can hook up with the Senator (Congressman?) on the rebound. Of course, Jill could use some silver fox in her lair as well.

I too would like to see Tracy come back to town and stay. Writers hardly have to live in NY to write. Jack needs a voice of reason when the Red Herring - my name for Phyllis and the fragrance - is around.

I'm not feeling Fen at all. He seems to now be popular with you guys and gals... but the actor and the character annoy the hell out of me. And why can't Lauren's other son show up once in a while. Even the Duchess' son would make drive-by appearances.

That's enough guff for now.

I agree 100%, Red Chair, about Fen. I can't stand him but every day I'm constantly amazed at how much he reminds me of Greg when he first came on the show. He's sulky and bratty and entitled. But physically, Fen and Kevin two could be brothers.

RedChair ... another good Nova Scotian post.

I don't see much wrong with the way Max Ehrich looks especially the way he has progressed since his initial appearances. However the character and the story line are indeed incredibly annoying and seems to be serving just as a catalyst to break up the once loyal and doting Baldwins; which is even more unrealistic. Actually at this point Michael should be well rid of her for the way she's been treating him and dragging up his past considering how he stood by her during her times of need. Of course maybe Lauren is still Sheila (or maybe Sheila could be Fenmore now or maybe even Michael).

Now, if Lauren's missing son Scotty returned to the fair city then he'd make a very well matched bookend for the woefully long missing Rafe.

This has actually been my favorite story, and IMO has been well done and very believable.

I loved Summer and Phyllis yesterday.

It has a lot of layers, and I'm hoping it keeps three of my favs, Michael, Lauren and Paul on my screen.

I have to agree on how this bullying story has played out! I think the young actors portraying Fen, Jamie and Summer have done an amazing job!!! I love Lauren's anguish at seeing Fen arrested by none other than Michael, the boy's dad. I understand Michael's point of view on how he thinks Fen may be like him.

I wish that they played it more like Michael not wanting his son to be like his younger self but that he left the DAs office to help Fen or even just suggested it. I think Fen deserves the right to hate his father and that Michael has to work his way to gaining back Fen's love. I can't wait to see this story progress now that Fen has to some how pay for his part in all this but that Michael now has to get his son's love too.

I hope they continue with Jamie on the show and even see Paul being his foster dad. It would be great to eventually see a kid overcome bullying and get his life back together. I do believe Jamie's father should be brought back into the story even for an episode or two since the dad would help explain why Jamie acted out initially early on in his time on screen. We can't forget that the kid does have anger management issues since he trashed his dad's gfs place.

One character that does need therapy is Summer. This poor kid has been lashing out left right and center and both Nick and Phyllis haven't seen it and are taking her word for "all is ok". I am not pleased with Phyllis AT ALL that after she confronted Summer DURING a blizzard she ran over to Jack's. SHe just found out that her daughter pushed a kid emotionally enough to the point of suicide and during a blizzard she is rushing over to her 'friend's' place for a Valentine meal while leaving her daughter alone. I just don't getit.

I didn't remember that there was a paternity test! DAMN IT TO HELL because it would have been such a great and dramatic turn of events in GC to have Nick discover that the girl he raised was not his all along!!!

And to imagine the grief for Jack.. and the elation! He would once again get a kid fully grown. It would be his third: Keemo, Kyle and then Summer. Man, this guy misses out on all the crappy diapers and 2am feedings!!!

But I said it earlier with Lily being Malcolms and not Neils. It's an easy solution with the DNA test because the results in soap world can always be that .05% wrong! I mean, look at how many people were deemed to be Katherine's kid before she got Tucker?!!

It would be a great reveal if Victor actually had his hand in it and switched the test results so that Jack would not be there for a kid and that his son, Nick, wasn't hurt. It's far fetched but I mean the man paid Patty Williams to have plastic surgery to basically kill Jack and he locked his first wife, Julia's, lover in the cellar of the ranch for months and months so I wouldn't put it past him.

It certainly would be an acceptable answer to me. ANd it would put Phyllis right against Victor!!!

YUMMY

I want Summer to stay Nick's child. Leave this alone.

pjc722 ... paragraph 4 post #70. I was thinking the same thing about Phyllis. I was just begrudgingly starting to kind of sort of like her for that confrontation with her daughter. Then she runs off (as you also observed) in that raging blizzard to be with Jack? (And why did Jack allow Nikki to leave in that agitated state she was in?)

OK, just finished watching the "STORM OF THE CENTURY" "YOU BETTER WATCH OUT GENOA CITY" and all I can say is that we were duped!

Sorry, all those who think I am always negative but this was a bust and a promotional lie for me!!!

Not one thing happened here that doesn't happen all the time on the show. The biggest joke of them all is that everyone was out driving in it! I live on the east coast where we've had blizzards and snowstorms and not only does my job close down early but the city does, as well. On top of that, EVERYONE STAYS HOME and bars and restaurants don't open.

EVERY SINGLE RESIDENT in Genoa City jumped out into their cars to go somewhere... except for Billy and Victoria! (And soooooo happy they got 5 minutes in the whole storm to let us know they will be redecorated that cheap set!!!)

I have to agree with TEDEW and WHY was Katherine out driving?! Who else doesn't see Adrianna becoming her new best friend like she was for Amber?! Repeat repeat repeat.

Sure, I loved that kiss between Lauren and Carmine and was ecstatic that it was just a kiss and not a hotel room romp! now Michael and Lauren have some spice. I didn't understand Sharon running over to Adam's or Nick at the bar because WHO THE HELL WAS WATCHING FAITH?!! Or even Chloe discovering she's pregnant and the best time to rush over to tell the man who you just told to take a long walk off a short pier that youre pregnant WAS DURING A BLIZZARD THEY HAVE NICKNAMED "THE STORM OF THE CENTURY"!!!

Or Nikki not just staying at the Abbott Mansion DURING a snow storm but forcing the hired help to drive you to your penthouse across town! (I can just see Nikki saying "I need to be home with Victor" and hopping into a Ford F150 pick-up truck with the lawnmower and rakes poking out the back of the truck bed!)

Avery leaves an hour after the DJ says STAY OFF THE ROAD FOLKS!

Lily staying late at the office with Tyler and not just saying it will get done tomorrow there is a blizzard about to hit. OR her twins being left at home with the sitter as a BLIZZARD "the storm of the century" is about to hit!?!!!

I have no problem with the stories... in essence... but I do have a problem with CBS marketing promoting it as if there was going to be something major happening! Nothing new happened other than Abby deciding to go out and grab a cocktail DURING A BLIZZARD and meeting Chavez or whatever his name is! Sure, that was great and I will like the pairing because I love ABBY but where is the suspense in a promoted blizzard if every damn citizen is driving around town!

It was lazy writing and even worse promotion. It just makes it desperate on the part of Jill and Josh to have written that to weave the stories together when you could have still told the story with just FLURRIES OUTSIDE!!!

SUCH A WASTE!

After Phyllis annoying me for so long on the show under MAB, I absolutely loved the long scenes she had with Summer.

When Michelle tones herself down, you understand why she's such a talent. Similar to Christian.

But actually wasn't it Summer who repeatedly urged and encouraged her mother to go see Jack? And when she arrived she said she'd only drove "blocks"... I didn't see anything wrong with it, especially when they sat and hugged for a lot of their talk. Sweet.
