Jack and Victor Form an Unholy Alliance on The Young and the Restless
Wednesday's The Young and the Restless started with Christian LeBlanc giving a tour of the Baldwin's penthouse. He talked about Michael stalking Cricket (Lauralee Bell), the Baldwin/Fisher clan and Michael's love for Lauren (Tracey Bregman).
Jack (Peter Bergman) said there was no way he was at fault for Victor (Eric Braeden) being targeted at his wedding. Victor said he believed Congressman Wheeler (Mark Pinter) was behind the attack, because Wheeler blames Victor for the death of his daughter. Victor then reminded Jack of his own culpability.
Jack quickly realized both of their families could be on Wheeler's hit list. He agreed to team up with his worst enemy to take Wheeler down.
Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) missed a meal she'd had scheduled with Cane (Daniel Goddard). When he called, she told him she would be right there. Cane asked her if everything was all right, but she brushed it aside. He realized Katherine was having problems with her memory.
Cane told Katherine she didn't have to go through this alone. She finally copped to having memory lapses, although she warned Jill (Jess Walton) must never find out.
I am so sick and tired of Cane being Katherine and Jill's go-to. Cane lied to and betrayed them both repeatedly, yet they still treat him as family. Why doesn't Billy (Billy Miller) get more scenes with the two women? He's actually Jill's real son, and Kay was best friends with his late father.
Michael asked Lauren if he should have divorce papers drawn up. This took his estranged wife by surprise. I don't know why, considering how she's been acting!
Lauren said she didn't want to lose him. Michael replied, saying he loved her with everything he is. He doesn't want a divorce, but he needs time to think.
Paul (Doug Davidson) and Chavez (Ignacio Serricchio) continued to investigate the wedding day shooting/bomb drama at the Newman Ranch. They realized there may be a connection between Victor and Wheeler. Why do I get the impression that Genoa City's newest police chief will be just as ineffective as almost every other soap police chief?
Kevin (Greg Rikaart) and Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) struggled to figure out how to pay their bills. Maybe it's just the bad memories from Guiding Light's bill paying storyline, but any soap that resorts to something as mundane as paying an electricity bill or mortgage for a plot point needs to reassess their direction. Soaps should provide escapism from the real world, not a reminder that the rent is past due.
Lauren went to Carmine (Marco Dapper) and told him their affair was over. He said he couldn't let her go.
