SPOILERS: How Far Will Phyllis Go to Keep Kyle and Summer Apart on The Young and the Restless?






 Nick/Phyllis/Kyle/Summer/Jack: Red's plot to keep Kyle away from Summer could lead to catastrophe for all involved. Just what will go down on her impromptu business trip with Jack's son?

While in Chi-Town, look for Phyllis to encourage Kyle to flirt with other girls. Meanwhile, she'll be intercepting calls between the unsuspecting-yet-swooning sibs left and right! When nothing else seems to work, will Phyllis do the unthinkable to take Kyle's mind off her daughter?

Victor/Nikki: They arrive back from their honeymoon. Expect Daddy Newman to be thrilled about Billy and Victoria' problems.  Speaking of which...

Billy/Victoria: The Gambler is determined to save his marriage. Will Jill prove an ally? I'm just glad she remembers she actually gave birth to this son and NOT Cane!

Neil/Leslie: The couple is stunned to learn Gus left half his estate to the mysterious Rose. Is she the one targeting the Winters and Michaelsons? Look for Neil to get his Perez Hilton on with a little blogging of his own.

Cane/Lily: The Ashbys kick back for the holiday.

Lauren: The Fenmore heiress hopes for a nice romantic evening with Michael. Will she get her wish?

Shick vs. Navery: With Adam all about Chelsea's uterus these days, Sharon is feeling left out. Usually when that happens she heads straight for first love, Nick. Problem is, he's getting even closer with Avery. Will Sharon continue to support his relationship with the intended next Mrs. Newman?

Such a STUPID storyline. Three words--"he's your brother." Problem solved!

Can't somebody please KILL Cane and Lily???? Like, NOW?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Gus had an ESTATE?? Wasn't he a JANITOR that was imprisoned for 15 years? What could he possibly have to leave anybody? Yet another stupid storyline.

If the "unthinkable" means Phyllis' taking one for the team by seducing Kyle, then I'm going to have to say that's a page ripped from the Days of Our Lives playbook. I don't particularly like it when the shows I watch start being too similar in style.

And why would a red-blooded young man who is so hot for an eighteen year old be so quick to get all up in the mother who's three times her age? Smile

Because said mother looks like Michelle Stafford and has the experience to boot.

Cane has done so much worse than Billy but Billy is always portrayed as some kind of eff-up. I don't get it.

How could Nick and Phyllis be so d*mn irresponsible and selfish as to not tell Summer the truth?! And it's not even like either of them suggested they consult a PROFESSIONAL about the best way to break this news. They just want to stall....unreal.

I don't know what to think about this. So Phyllis will have sex with Kyle just get his mind off of Summer?! Or just make it seem so?

I am loving the story of revealing who the daddy is of SUmmer but I do have to agree with people on why they are not telling Summer. It just seems like fabricated plot points just to prolong the story.

BUT why didn't they retake the test to guarantee that the hair on the brush was Summer's and that she is indeed Jack's?! Sure, Phyllis whored it up with only 2 men but what's to say that Avery... a blonde... was over at the house and realizing she forgot her brush she borrowed Summer's?! It could indeed be Avery's hair in the brush.

Test it with Jack's Phyllis' and even Nick's all over again.

AND then why are they prolonging the inevitable?! I understand they don't want Summer to go off the deepend but WHEN IS A GOOD TIME to tell someone that your daddy ain't your daddy and for that matter you are crushing on your only brother while your half brother is MIA somewhere in Asia.

And if Phyllis sleeps with Kyle HOW IS THAT ANY SAFER or easier for SUmmer to react to then "hmmmm, Kyle meet your sister. Summer meet your brother. Put your bra on and pull up your pants."

I've always said I don't understand why Katherine gave Chancellor to Cane and not Billy. Neither is a blood relation and wouldn't it be fantastic to bring back Mac as a dynamic business woman without JT?! Cause her to make trouble for Billy and Cane.

Overall though, Y&R is the best written soap right now.

If you subtract the ESTATE that Gus is supposedly giving away. What's in it a striped jumpsuit and an orange one? A toothbrush and some cigarettes? A pillow? A scratchy wool blanket?! A watch bought at SEARS in 1985? Dirty shoes? A Nautica polo shirt?!!

Seriously what did the guy have? ANd PLEASE don't connect Rose to Neil. Tired of this OUT OF THE BLUE connections/coincidences on soaps.

And here I thought MAB, wrote some crap. This stuff is just all, way beyond stupid. You forgot to include DYLAN. I see he made #3 on their list. In his picture, he looks like he has a stick up his ass.

Michelle Stafford is not 3 times the dippy daughters age, and believe me, if I had the chance I would take her anytime before dipsy doodle Summer.

You say to-MAY-to.

I say to-MAH-to.

In this case though, I think we're on the same page. I don't know what Kyle sees in that girl. It's far more believable that he'd want the hot cougar.

If Josh does have Phyllis sleep with Kyle, it's not going to stop him from sleeping with Summer. It doesn't make sense.

Josh doesn't write that crap so I'd be shocked if that happened. And he hasn't shocked me yet. (I wish he would, but this would be creeped out...not shock.)

I hope Phyllis sleeps with Kyle. That will set off a tornado in Jack. In turn makes Phyllis leave town in disgrace in her daughters and Jacks eyes.

Look at the bright side...with Summer no longer a Newman now there will be a female close in age to Noah that's available and not related to him!

Why are the citizens of GC being so...nasty...of late? Oh, some have always been asshats. But Chloe and Nick are vying for the title of Head Hypocrite, Victoria is chockful of hormone-enhanced hatred, and I can't tell if Chelsea is cruel or stupid or delusional. Maybe, she's all three: um, "crustulusional"? g

By comparison, Lauren's whorin' and Kevin's sticky fingers seem almost endearing, lol.

Don't even get me started on using Big Red to prop Nick. I've never cared for Phyllis but she's mainly been true to her character. Kinda wonder if she's being written this way because the actress is leaving or maybe it's the other way round?

I've no comment on the Dylan/Avery/Chelsea silliness beyond asking why they had to drag Adam into this farcical mess?

The Baldwin-Fishers, Paul, and the possibility...however remote...of seeing Nick and Victoria get their comeuppance is what is keeping me tuning in. And the chess game between Adam and TGVN.

The worst part of this whole thing is Phyllis protecting Nick. He doesn't want to tell Summer out of selfishness, not wanting to protect her.

Just read an AMAZING review of Y&R, on a message board, and thought I'd share it here w/ you fine folks. Must read.

-------

This show is horribly written. It's been 10 months. All I see are FLOPS.

Wheeler Story. FLOP. Waste of talented actor. Mark Pinter could've been a great nemesis for Victor. Instead he was written as a cartoon villain. Planting a bomb to massacre a family? GMAB! I still don't get his motive. No follow-up. No fallout. Nick, Avery, Vicky, Nikki, never learn of Victor's involvement with Stephanie. All the huffing & puffing Nick did to Victor about putting Avery's life at risk amounts to NOTHING. All is forgotten. Victor is worshipped. Wheeler is a plot point for Adam to take a bullet for Victor. Next!

Gus Rogan/Belinda Murder. FLOP. Lawd. A hot mess. Leslie & Tyler Michaelson are really Valerie & Davis Rogan. WTF? Why write 2 identities? Then it was Belinda this, Belinda that. Belinda, Belinda, Belinda which turned to Rose, Rose, Rose. Who is Rose? Gus drops dead. Now it's Neil's Gossip Girl escapades and the secret blogger story. Next!

Newman Inc. FLOP. This regime can't write business stories. Even MAB was better. It started with promise when Jack & Tucker took control and booted Victor. It fell apart when Jack left. The writers forgot NE was publicly traded, the BOD became some phantom off-screen entity that let Adam do whatever. Jack & Tucker's shares were forgotten. Adam, Billy, Sharon, Adam took turns playing CEO. Mason/Sharon bipolar meds, blah, blah. Now NE is allegedly privatized, but again, it's off-screen, no mention of how, or what happened, we're just told Adam found some secret investor, and don't ask any more questions.... Victoria works there for a week & leaves to write children's books. WTF? Nowadays NE is just a place for Adam to drink & whine about Chelsea's baby woes to anyone who will listen. Next!

Kevin/Chloe/Robin Hood/Bag of Money/Adriana. FLOP. Adriana steals drug money. Alex asks everyone, Where's the money? Chloe & the cat suit breaking into Noah's home to steal the bag of money. Chlovin stealing from richer people and having sex. Robin Hood. Chloe steals from Kay and lets Adriana take the fall & leave town in shame. Kevin does more B&E's. Chloe the troll spends much deserved night in jail & screams about it. These loathesome losers are a waste of space. Why are they still on my screen? Be gone. Next!

Chelsea's baby lie. FLOP! This character has been pregnant 3 times in a year. N'uff said. Why is she lying about the paternity of her baby? Because that idiot Chloe told her to? Month after month of those two featherbrains Chelsea & Chloe having the same "baby daddy" conversation over and over and over again, I want to smash things and throttle the writers! Dreadful. Rehash of that insipid Chloe/Cane/Billy/Lily baby crap-fest from 5 years ago. Unoriginal. Tedious. Waste of time. STUPID.

They randomly throw Steve Burton in there, so it gets extra screen time. Week after week of this Chelsea baby story. IT'S PAINFUL and never-ending.

I actually enjoyed Steve Burton when he first joined the show. I liked Dylan pitted against Nick and making a play for Avery. He sparkled with Sharon Case. He was great with Faith. WHY OH WHY did they have to put JFP's #1 pet in the HORRID Chelsea baby story???? It's cannibalizing the entire show.

Billy's gambling. Who cares? FLOP! Victoria going crazy on hormones and writing baby books. OMG. No words. I watch YT videos of Bill Bell's Victoria and want to cry. This is so INSULTING and sexist, I cringe.

Nikki has Multiple Sclerosis. FLOP. Story lasts 5 minutes and got dropped. Pointless.

Sharon's Bipolar Story. FLOP. Plot point for Adam to play hero and his marriage to fall apart. Whackadoo. Crazypants. Sharon is worse than ever, job-less, friend-less, outcast, pariah, trolling bars for meaningless sex with random men. Only highlight was Lorraine Toussaint who played Dr Watkins. Too bad Sharon ignored everything she said. Next!

Jamie/Fen/Summer bullying story. The ONLY story that had value under the new regime. Daniel Polo was a real find, and Jamie was the best new character they introduced. The bullying story was surprisingly GOOD until they completely dropped the ball. The resolution was appalling as Jamie apologized to his tormenters, and was promptly shipped off to DC. What a waste. It was all a plot point for Lauren to cheat with Carmine. I like Marco Dapper but they need to give him more to do than just take off his clothes.

Summer's paternity story. Fans have been waiting for this since 2006. After 7 years, they deserved a pay off. Unfortunately, the ball was dropped. Lousy pacing and poor writing rears its ugly head, sucking all the air out of this storyline. Sorry, I just don't buy that Nick lied for 18 years because he wanted a Cassie replacement. Kyle's sudden interest in Summer screams PLOT POINT. Sharon's non-reaction. WTF? Talk about missing a beat. High point was Nick telling Phyllis, but they lost all momentum by putting this story on the backburner to showcase, you guessed it, CHELSEA'S baby story and the stupid adventures of Chloe & Kevin's miserable lives. WHO CARES? Next!

Summer's paternity should be the A-tier story driving the entire show. Jack, Nick, Summer, Phyllis front and center. Phyllis is leaving in a month, so let her have the screen time to exit with a bang. Maybe they can turn this around, maybe Peter Bergman can salvage it, but there's only so much good actors can do when the writing fails to deliver. BTW, the image of Phyllis sexing up Kyle sickens me. Truly.

Other shit...

Sharon inexplicably beds a random dayplayer named Wayne. WTF? Gratuitous. Pointless. Did Sharon need more degradation? Wasn't MAB's 5 years enough? Fuck you, writers. You promised to fix Sharon. This is not how to do it. She's supposed to be on medication now. If she went off her meds, show us, tell us. Watching her troll bars for more random dick is just depressing.

JT calls Victoria with a big emergency and texts her that Reed is coming to live with her for undisclosed mysterious reasons. Panic ensues. A month later and still no Reed. WTF? I hate when writers start stories and then just forget. It's lazy and confusing. Sloppy.

Victoria writing children's books. Come on. Seriously? Note to writers: Victoria belongs in business. Let her run BON, start her own company, work with Abby, join Chancellor, anything.

Noah Newman. Victor's first grandson. Newman heir. Why is he written like such a loser? He's dirt poor. Can't afford his own apartment or a new couch. Is this guy ever getting a storyline? He pours drinks and bangs random dayplayers off-screen.

Is it my imagination or has this cast QUADRUPLED?

JFP's Regime - Grade: F, Fail, utter fail.

Totally disagree. I think there are issues but the show is really good with acting dialogue and entertaining most of the time.

OMG, that review is not only 100% TRUE and accurate - worded excellently btw - and could have been written by me. That is EXACTLY how I feel about the show.

I could add that with these horrible characters like Wheeler, Gus, Rogan, Rose, Belinda, etc. not only were they flops, they should have never ever even been added in the FIRST place. Use the actors you HAVE. You HAVE them. Wheeler should have never even been brought on when you have Tucker. Don't bring in an instant family for Leslie and Tyler when Neil is the veteran, to which storyline should revolve around. Bring in Leslie as a squeeze for Neil, fine. But don't make the Winters family about HER, when there are actual Winters around.

As with the reviewer, I also am giving them an opportunity to show what they are going to do with the Nick/Phyllis/Summer storyline. So far it's been pretty good, and even though Kyle & Phyllis hooking up seems ludicrous, it is actually something Phyllis would do. The biggest WTF moment for me has been Sharon's non-reaction. It's insulting! Sharon is the original heroine and lead of this storyline. Phyllis was the interloper. Sharon has not only the RIGHT to react and get involved in all this, I EXPECT it from her. So, unless there's a delayed reaction (whatever that is) coming down the pike still, I'm gonna be majorly disappointed with the role Sharon is playing in this.

TRACEYabbott, that's what I don't understand about this story.. even though I love it... that after they discover the first test was inconclusive and then the second comes back as false WHY Phyllis isn't demanded a third test where they test Phyllis, Nick Jack and Summer to make sure that they get it right.

First of all, it would be PRICELESS to see Phyllis try and get some sort of DNA sample from Jack and/or Summer to be tested.

Plus, besides Courtney's, it could be Avery's or even Sharon's for that matter if you think that every little girl likes to brush their mommy's hair so why wouldn't Faith have Summer's brush and she brushes Sharon's hair with it and that's where the NO RELATION comes up.

Like with GH, it;s frustrating when writers want to go in a 180 degree turn with history but give no plausible reason for the direction change.

DO the test DON"T do Kyle, Phyllis.

@Pgc22- I agree with you. I love y&r as of late. I think it has been really good. It is much better than gh, which I just could not stomach the cartooning anymore and took a sabbatical of the show. Sharon not caring about summer is a major flop. I was looking forward to her reaction and being upset with Nick. But it seems all Sharon is concerned about is sex right now. I hope they explain that she has not been taking her medication like she should or something! Angry If Phyllis sleeps with Kyle, I am going to be upset. There is no need for the storyline to go that route. All of sudden Kyle was written as infatuated with summer, and then he goes and sleeps with Phyllis??? Did Phyllis not learn anything from Rogan? It would destroy Jack and he deserves so much better, not to mention it would also destroy her relationship with her daughter, that is just now being repaired. Brother or not, summer will be upset if her mother sleeps with the guy she loves. Just don't do it writers. I can't believe that Phyllis listened to Nick and decided not to tell Jack and Summer! Not smart, and Nick is only doing it for selfish reasons. When Jack finds out Phyllis knew and did not immediately tell him, he is going to be upset. Sick And as far as some of the storylines that flopped, the new regime had just began, they had to figure out what worked and what didn't and clean up mab mess so I don't fault them for that at all.

I'm not strongly against or for the story lines on Y&R, but I would like to hold the mirror up to your faces. I notice that nothing seems to please anyone of the "fans". All I read are negative comments about the show and it's actors. It makes some of you guys look like fools, because you are still watching the show. Get over it or simply STOP WATCHING. Get a freaking life.

Having come off some of the worst writing in YR history under the last two EPs, I'm perfectly fine with almost all of what's happening in GC.

It's by far not perfect or up to Bell quality, but there's been a lot of good.

I think if people are frustrated they should tune out for a while and check it out in a couple of months. Get a fresh perspective. Maybe watch GH or BB...

Mman76... It's all fans who keep the show going... The ones who love it and those who hate what's being put out there.

I love the show and the actors but think, like Mel-o said in some of his-her post that stories were huge flops.

I said it abt the wheeler story and how they wasted a veteran actor in a story that advanced nothing.

They brought on Phyllis n Avery's dad and killed him and the girls still have no relationship.

They did it with Dylan's dad and I still ask why? Has the man been buried or cremated cause Dylan just spent his inheritance on a "going out of business" business with no experience in making coffee.

And then Gus came and nothing new with him while he was alive. Tyler n his sister are still the same.

Jack took over Newman and in a flash was addicted to meds and lift for cabin rehab and is back starting a fashion line.

Even his friendship with Adam is no where unless jack is on the other line of Adams mystery calls.

Adriana was a flop as was Noah's life on the show right now. Even Kyle is a flop as a man.

But then you see the great drama with michael n Lauren, Chloe n Kevin now, Chelsea and Adam and even the amazing return of Gloria to the fold and you have a strong show in my mind. With stories written well and believable in execution Y&R can be great.

Jill n josh just need to figure out what everyone show be doing.

In my mind, this stealing storyline has been right up there with that ridiculous chipmonk BS. HATE IT.

As far as Sharon not caring about Summer, it seems she's more interested in using that to get in good with Nick.

The Noah thing grates on my nerves too. It's like Dylan. He can afford to buy a warehouse and a business in one week but can't afford a freaking BED.
