Will Nikki Fall Back Under Ian Ward's Spell on The Young and the Restless?






Dylan's (Steve Burton) quest for a family reunion is about to produce results sooner than expected on The Young and the Restless. Socialite Nikki Newman's (Melody Thomas Scott) baby daddy/cult leader Ian Ward (Ray Wise) takes a trip to Genoa City to reunite with his former follower, just as their son heads to Idaho to learn more about his bio dad.

What will Ian's return mean for the good folks of GC? TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan gets the skinny from Wise.

TV Guide Magazine: Yeah, right. Ian sexually abused Nikki back in the New World Commune days and impregnated her with Dylan. Why would she let him in the door, much less back in her life?

Wise: I can't reveal his big secret reason for coming to town — what he really wants — but he certainly hopes to reestablish a relationship with the beautiful Nikki. Once upon a time, she felt a little something for him. He thinks he can override her fears and get that back. He's a very confident fellow.

Honey, I don't think Victor (Eric Braeden) will be amused hearing that! Is Wise's role just a drive-by on? Read on

TV Guide Magazine: How long will Ian stay in GC?

Wise: Hard to say. He's finding more and more reasons to stick around. He seems to be operating on his own right now, but it's a good bet he's not. Maybe he'll get an apartment in town. After all, Nikki looks real good. A gorgeous woman!

Dear Jesus no JFP about "reforming" this sadist rapist...but JFP does like to reform despicable characters and make them romantic leads...UGH!

Please don't let Nikki bond with him either....I do hope this is drive by and not trying to establish him on the canvas.... Puzzled Oups

Free advice to Ray Wise:

1) NEVER be alone with anyone while working at Y&R. Install cameras in your trailer.

2) Dumb down your talent and give generic performances, especially when sharing scenes with Duck A La Orange. If you steal the spotlight from Dyldo you.will.pay.dearly.

3) Never say a word or even look at the young starlets. They might feel violated or defiled by your "lecherous" eyes.

4) Kiss JFP's ass often and deeply.

5) Shut your mouth.

Other than that, have fun! LOL

LoL I've read the article, and I have to say, Ray Wise is the ONLY REASON I'm suddenly intrigued by this story. I guess I'll have to sit through Steve Burton's painful constipation faces just to see Ray Wise.

As for reforming the character, I am really hoping Ian Ward is the next BIG BAD!!! I might actually enjoy the character of Dylan if Ian tortures him a big, I mean it's the ONLY reason I liked Jason because Lawd knows it wasn't because of Burton's acting. They put that brain damaged bastard through so much on GH, that you couldn't help but root for him. However, I probably won't start rooting until he begins to play another character.

Bring on Ray Wise!!!

I suspect this is gonna be yet another reason for JFP to allow her pet SB to eat up even more screen time. That said, based on what we know about the character, the casting of the great Ray Wise is admittedly inspired. I don't know if he can singlehandedly save this story but I suspect it will be entertaining watching him try.

This is probably the worst thing ever seen on this show. I can for a very, VERY small percentage get the idea of him showing up, considering even *that* is very farfetched, considering Nikki never, not once even talked about the whole matter in 40 years, and so *now* he shows up? Ridiculous. But the fact that even though he would show up, that Nikki would ever even open the door to him is beyond lunacy. Please do not start celebrating a cult leading rapist on this show. Someone like that is on Franco-level. Do NOT even entertain the idea of making him some sort of love interest for Nikki. He is to be treated as nothing more than a crazy person. Furthermore, No interloper of Nikki & Victor has ever been successful, and this one most certainly will not be.

I'm a Ray Wise (loved him on Reaper!) fan so I might stop fast-forwarding Dylan's scenes just to watch Mr. Wise in action.

If they write him as wanting to get with Nikki, that will be stupid. Sexual predators generally have a type. If they prey on young girls, they're not suddenly going to go for a woman who is past middle age.

I think this will be great.

It's a nod to Nikki's history, and regardless of it being 100% accurate or not, writers take liberties quite often.

I am however not interested in how this affects Dylan...but give me Ray, Eric, Melody and hopefully Paul! Can't wait.

This craptacular hasn't had good storytelling in years. I can't remember a great story in such a long time. BTW, Melody Thomas Scott is bloating up like a dead dog these days. Her fright-wig hair makes her look about 10 years older than the 58 she "claims" in her bio. She ain't no Laura Palmer.

This looks like the only upcoming Y&R story I will be watching. No one does creeper like Ray Wise.

Reality...you sound so miserable watching the show. And your comments about MTS are cruel.

You said you are done at the end of the month with the show, but why don't you do yourself a favor dude, and just check out now.

I'm fearing for your health.

It is a real pleasure to see someone that looks at MTS/Nikki, as I do with her fright wigs. She, like the poster states, has really bloated up and I agree about her looking older than her stated 57 or 58. Have always found that hard to believe. Anything to do with this story line is just disgusting to me, of course anything that includes Steve/Dildo, disgusts me. It is just beyond me, how they can try to make us long time viewers be interested in this shit.

There's truly no need for this kind of post and the cruelty is so unbecoming to say in the least. I might not be a happy camper but this shows your mentality and IQ which registers about at 7 and not on the Richter scale... Crazy

Talking shit about people's bodies from behind your keyboard anonymously....I bet you wouldn't if you had to own it and put your pic up like pferrando or your full name like I do.
Hurting people hurt people...or try to anyway.

And that is my pic btw...don't know why more people don't show us what THEY look when/before doing all this judging.

I'm balding and almost 50 and hope to HELL I look as fantastic as these soap stars in High Def I might add.

Well, I for one, can't find a single thing wrong with that pic from this vantage point. Just sayin'.... Smile

And I'd say MTS is aging fairly well for someone approaching sixty.
