Paul Hires Detective Chavez at GCPD on The Young and the Restless




Thursday’s The Young and the Restless opened with Michelle Stafford talking about how Phyllis arrived in Genoa City. She reflected about her relationships with Jack (Peter Bergman), Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon (Sharon Case). She also said she loved playing Sheila Carter.

Much of the episode featured Jack and Phyllis’ slow build relationship.

Am I the only one who wants to see a Detective Chavez (Ignacio Serricchio) and Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) pairing? Speaking of pairings, has anyone else found it odd that Kyle (Blake Hood) seems to know Phyllis better than Jack?


One of the first things Paul (Doug Davidson) did as police chief was hire Detective Chavez. Chavez and Abby (Marcy Rylan) celebrated his good news. Abby invited him to be her date at Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki’s (Melody Thomas Scott).

Kyle found himself giving Summer (Hunter King) a tour of Jabot, but quickly pawned her off on another intern.

Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren (Tracey Bregman) still struggled to mend their relationship.

Dylan (Steve Burton) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) chatted at the GCAC, while Dylan knocked a few drinks back. He ended up having one too many, and Chelsea brought him home. At Dylan's place, Dylan planted a big kiss on Chelsea.

Nikki continued to be affected by MS.

How can Paul become chief of police when he isn't even a policeman? Never been a policeman, he's a PI. Do the writers think we are stupid?

Cuppa_Coffee ... exactly! Nothing against Paul but like I said in a previous post ... anyone in GC seems to be able to waltz willy nilly into any job they want (or unreasonably be offered one) without any education, experience or credentials.

You're not the only one, DC, to find kyle knew more about Phyllis than jack. As much as I like Phyllis with jack I think the character is a bit different than she was 10 years ago when they were first paired up. Phyllis was a little different then and not sure why but from clips and such she just seemed better for him at that te then now.

As much as I would love a redo of the "jack/Jill/John" triangle done sooooo well a few decades ago, I am still against it being done with "jack/Phyllis/Kyle" now if Jill and josh opted to reignite Kylie's recent crush on Phyllis under the new recast of Kyle. For one thing, jack was a known lady's man and notorious bad boy. Right now the baddest thing Kyle has done was pawn summer off on another cute intern.

On another note, there's a lot of great chemistry going on here on the show but I'm not seeing any long lasting pairings. I'm only seeing Jill and josh testing the waters with everyone.

Dylan is sweet with Avery but I don't see the same spark you get with Sharon and him or even dylan with Chelsea. Even Adam has lost the real energy that was evident with Sharon and the anger toward Chelsea I think has sunk that ship (even her anger is doing the same). Dylan even has great chemistry with Kevin. I'm mean Kevin was flirting with him just the other day that if it happened the shows numbers would JUMP!!! (It ain't gonna happen sadly)

Chavez has great chemistry with Abby, nice banter with Chloe and a good energy with Chelsea! But I want them to start pairing him up with one of them. (If only so that after I'm in the Chavez /Abby Chloe or Chelsea camp, he can fool around to give us some drama)

I am going to say it, Lauren's text to carmine to apologize for not saying hello snitched it for me. Lauren and michael have lost their spark and chemistry. I am going to say they end up getting a divorce because its not only the writing but the energy the two actors had together that seems different . (I'm not saying they don't like one another but I think divorce is what the writers are putting out there). Which is great because the drama will be amazing with these two.

As for Chloe liking Chavez, can you imagine the destruction of Kevin if Chloe cheats on him?! He will be crushed and I can guarantee will go off the deep deep end this time. I will predict Kevin ... As much as I like the actor (secret crush) ... Will be written out of series within a year. We barely see Gloria since Jill came on and it's a sign with Jill from her past that certain families die off to allow new ones to live on. It's either Leslie/Tyler's that will live or I will put a bet on Adrianna/Chavez' family.

But I am loving the show and even more the event coming up!! And LOVE LOVE the actors vignettes in the beginning of the show. What other soap can say the same actors in the role for on average 20 plus years like Y&R.

Paul was a former police officer before being a PI but is it enough to be police chief?

Chloe is a total freak nowadays, she talks like a high school girl and her friendship with chelsea is boring and ackward. I don't want her with Alex she is too ditzy. I can do without.

I hope Michael get away from Traci cougar, he deserves a mature woman, no a screw up like Lauren. I hope Fen learns about her affair and give her the cold shoulder, that I want to see.

Abby is still stupid and uninteresting, she can go back where she came from.

Frankly, Y&R in kind of boring.

Paul had went to becoming a policeman as Carl back when Williams first came on the show. Paul chose to be PI and has all those years. I like the fact Paul will be Chief because he's a dog with bone when he's investigating. Maybe now the GCPD will have a competent force instead of stupid Ronan (one the most ill conceived characters of MAB).

I did like the Alex & Chloe, which is nice to see IS has chemistry with some of the leading ladies.

Paul was never a police office. His father was but not Paul. His sole career has been private investigator and for a short bit of time head of security for Newman.

But I am not sure why people are complaining over this career move for the character. Doug has been playing Paul for 34 years STRAIGHT. I don't think he has ever left the canvas and any story he has been given has proven to be blockbuster! This will just keep him in town!

Plus, if you look at the justice system in Genoa City it doesn't have a great track record. The last DA, a hot black man, was basically run out of town because he went up against the ULTRA RICH White man. Then you have the DA who was a convicted criminal. Either no one opted to run against him or that opponent wasn't reading the same websites Michael's son, Fen was reading.

As for Police Chiefs and their past careers... this is a soap staple. Look at General Hospital. Anna was a spy. Not a cop. The only difference between a spy and a PI is that the spy is paid by the government and doesn't have to call the police to arrest someone. GH has a long history of hiring INTERNATIONAL SECRET SPIES to run their police department.

Seeing Paul as chief is far less realistic than seeing a great deal of the other UNBELIEVABLE stuff we see on soaps!

And while we are on it and careers, I believe that THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has the largest number of lawyers in one town at ONE TIME than any soap has ever had before! We have Michael, Christine, Avery and Leslie.

I would love to see Michael, Christine, Avery and Leslie, for that matter, all open up a law firm together. They can still interact with Jabot Cosmetics and mid west couture (think low cropped cowboy shirts and daisy dukes BEDAZZLED out the wa-zoo!) and Newman!

Bring in a hot male lawyer to balance out the female to male quotient and you could have a great little base for great story right there! We don't need Christine or Michael as the DAs we need them working together.

I always find that DAs on soaps are only liked when there is no family or friend on trial and then when their is EVERYONE and their uncle thinks the DA has to turn a blind eye to their loved ones missed deeds like we all do when we discover a friend has a job at an airline, a bakery, or clothing store or a car dealership! We all feel like we deserve a discount and when we don't get it we get mad at them!

But it would be a great new set for the show and with the cast of characters in this town, you could still see Leslie cavorting and flirting with Neil during board meetings, Christine and Paul could still be sexy together, Avery and Nick or Dylan could still pop in on one another and Michael could still be MICHAEL.

WHY HASN"T ANYONE made this happen!?!!

Sorry, I am sick of the 30 year old JABOT set and even logo. The same old VICTOR NEWMAN office furniture. and the non-existent Chancellor Enterprise building. It would be fun. And law shows are still all the rage these days. LOL

I'm okay with Paul being Chief. It sets up keeping Alex in town, and puts another facet to the show other than just Jabot and Newman.

I don't remember if he was a cop, but he's worked with the dept before so it really isn't much of a stretch.

I'd still like to see Paul and Christine more, and have them adopt Jamie.

pjc722 ...
You have a secret crush for Kevin? Secret from who? Of course I've always felt the same way for Greg Rikaart ... right from when I first started seeing him on screens small and large.

(But I think you should check the last line in your post #9 above?)

Yeah, I have a strong feeling that's why the Kyle role was recast cuz I just don't see alot of chem between Blake Hood and Michelle Stafford--he acts like a little boy around her--and I think the writers are really wanting to throw Kyle into the Jack/Phyllis situation.

Not sure if I missed something somewhere regarding Paul, but I didn't realize he'd even been offered the chief of police job until he and Michael were talking about it at the athletic club. Either way, kinda makes sense to me and anything to keep that sexy bastard Alex Chavez onscreen is alright by me(and yes, for those wondering, IS has chemistry with every woman on this show and even some of the men Wink ).

They seemed to be testing Phyllis/Kyle shortly after JFP/JG took over--around the time Jack's addiction was gearing up--but then it seemed to be suddenly dropped for whatever reason. I think once the recast starts that that angle is gonna be revisited big time.

It's going to happen between Kyle and Phyllis. Mark my words with all the talk right now about Phyllis, her history, how she hurt jack, his addiction... Jill and josh are readying this story up!! Only difference from before is that it will have victors hands all over it, I'm sure!!

Andy last line from #9 should have read "far more realistic"

noway, you are right. This guy is definitely a keeper, an almost perfect 10. Great that he's around. Haven't had a non-psycho sexy male Latino lead since David Lago back in the Kay Alden days. Hopefully JFP & JoshG will give the gals and some guys a treat by having him naked and in bed with the right woman soon. Someone like Abby. Maybe she and Chloe can fight over the guy. He needs to be front-burnered now.

Just read the latest SOD and the articles about Y and R's 40th.

In the timeline it said Paul was a cop in 82', so someone's paying attention to history. There were a lot of memories jogged by their story, but when I got to 2006/7, it was like reliving a nightmare. Some bad stories...Hope that's behind us.

Love Chavez.

Do we want another younger man older woman story with Kyle and Phyllis? I don't. Two of the exact same storylines going at the same time kinda sounds recently familiar... Crazy

I like Alejandro but not with Abby. IS looks more engaged in his scenes with EH. Go with Chloe and Alex. Lord knows Chlovin needs to die and Chloe needs something to do besides tending to Chelsea day in and day out.

Even though he "cleans up" well, I still prefer Chavez with his scruff. At the wedding today he did still look hot in his tux/suit.

pferrando ... even though it was nice to see Chavez cleaned up don't worry, it looks like he'll be back in form in a few hours.
