GH BYTES: Ewen (Nathin Butler) you’re an evil boy for zapping poor Robin’s (Kimberly McCullough) brain like that. When Anna (Finola Hughes) learns the truth she is going to obliterate you. I believe it!
Anna and Heather (Robin Mattson) faced off in the interrogation room over Heather’s claim that Robin is alive. It was fascinating to watch Anna's reactions. As outlandish as Heather’s story was, you could see from her expression that she believed it more and more the longer she listened. Bravo to Hughes and Mattson.
Heather: “You know something Slim, you’re not looking so hot. Are you not sleeping well at night? Are you laying awake thinking I might be telling the truth after all?
Lulu (Julie Marie Berman) brought Patrick (Jason Thompson) to the hospital to get treatment for his drug addiction. It was sad that Robin was “killed” off earlier in the year, but her “death” and its repercussions have provided so many opportunities for Thompson to deliver emotional performances. No one deserves a Daytime Emmy next year more than he does.
Todd (Roger Howarth) refused to give Kate (Kelly Sullivan) her magazine back. Kate then threatened to sic Sonny (Maurice Benard) on him.
Kate: “Did you know your gossip columnist attacked my cousin last night?”
Todd: “Sure, it’s already front page news. ‘LSD OD Oh Da Doo Da Day’.”
Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) sought Ewen’s advice on what will happen to his mother when Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) awakes from her drug-induced coma.
DAYS BYTES: The ONLY good thing to come out of Daniel (Shawn Christian) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) being in a relationship was Victor (John Aniston) ripping them apair of new ones on Thursday.
Victor to Daniel: “Good God man, what are you thinking?”
That’s the question I’m asking the DAYS writing team.
Victor: “She, Nicole…I mean, she makes Medea look like the tooth fairy.”
Daniel: “Did you tell Phillip who he can and cannot sleep with?”
Victor: “I tried to and look how well that turned out!”
Victor to Nicole: “Let me get this straight. You get a divorce from EJ. Before the ink is dry, you’re jumping in the sack with Salem’s own Dudley Do Right. You end up getting pregnant by him. Before the second trimester is over you’re making whoopee with Daniel? Fruit flies have longer relationships than you do, Nicole!”
Nicole: “I never took biology.”
Victor: “Oh, but you’re so good at it.”
Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Will (Chandler Massey) convinced EJ (James Scott) he needs to go on the run, to save himself from whoever is framing him. This is going to work out as badly as most Sami Brady schemes.
Chad (Casey Deidrick) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) got lost in the tunnels beneath Salem. Why are most men so afraid of asking for directions?
Y&R BYTES: Nick (Joshua Morrow) showed up at Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Billy’s (Billy Miller) house to try and call a truce. The video of Nick punching Billy went viral, much to Phyllis’ (Michelle Stafford) chagrin. Nick is such an infuriatingly self-righteous wet blanket. He tried defending Phyllis to Victoria, but she wasn’t having any of it.
Meanwhile, Billy worked to convince Heather (Jennifer Landon) to give him an anonymous tip on Phyllis’ case. If she did, he’d give Paul (Doug Davidson) good coverage in Restless Style. Heather didn’t take him up on it, but at some point I suspect she will. She and Cricket (Lauralee Bell) aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on Paul's defense.
Have I mentioned recently how much I hate Avery's (Jessica Collins) glasses?
If Jill Farren Phelps knows what’s good for her, she’d recast Victoria the first day on the job. There is a lot of work to be done at The Young and the Restless.
Recasting Victoria with a STRONG actress would be a sign to fans that good improvements are on the way.
B&B BYTES: Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens has always praised Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) as being a smart ho. Well, it appears Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) believes the secret to her success is locked up in Brooke’s closet, and not her brain. Steffy and Liam (Scott Clifton) had an intriguing conversation about Brooke’s closet and what it might contain.
Steffy: “Rummaging around in Brooke Logan’s closet, no telling what you might find.”
Steffy: “You haven’t thought about it?”
Liam: “What’s in Brooke’s closet?”
Liam: “Uh no….no”
Steffy: “You’re not a little bit curious?”
Later in the conversation,
Steffy: “It’s not the clothes I want to see. It’s the lingerie vault.
Liam: “I’m sorry, what?”
Steffy: “The source of Brooke’s power. That’s not just any kind of closet. I’m sure she has like a secret hidden drawer of like an arsenal of satin lace; a long feather boa that could tangle up a man for years.”
Liam: “You know this is my mother-in-law you’re talking abou,t right?”
Steffy: “Oh come on, you gotta believe she has some freaky stuff in there. Hope could find some things…change your relationship.”
What freaky sneaky things could be in Brooke’s closet? The possibilities are endless.
Hope (Kim Matula) wigged out after watching the video of Steffy and Liam.
Unfortunately for Marcus (Texas Battle), the police taped his confession to texting while driving. Not that me made it hard for them. He's only discussed it 8700 times a scene.
