Y&R BYTES: It is time for Harmony (Debbi Morgan) to make a fast exit from Genoa City. With each passing day I like the character less and less. More importantly, after many memorable performances as Angie on All My Children, I do not want the role of Harmony to be my lasting soap memory of Morgan.
Both Morgan and Kristoff St. John deserve better than being thrown together in such a chemistry-free pairing. The Young and the Restless needs to cut its losses and admit the role of Harmony has been a colossal mistake. Next, they need to get on the horn and call up Victoria Rowell.
Sharon (Sharon Case) woke up with a hangover, then apologized to Tucker (Stephen Nichols) for kissing him in her drunken state. Nikki arrived at the Newman ranch to try and find Victor (Eric Braeden).
Sharon: “Victor is my husband and my concern, so why don’t you get the hell out and go back to your husband?”
Sharon vs. Nikki (Melodie Thomas Scott) is always such a treat.
Billy (Billy Miller) tried to figure out how to get the scoop on Phyllis (Michelle Stafford). At the same time, Phyllis was trying to determine what Billy knows. Why do I suspect he’ll come up with something even she doesn’t anticipate? That super detective Nick (Joshua Morrow) told Phyllis he though Billy was bluffing.
I have to say I loved Victoria (Amelia Heinle) ripping Phyllis for her double standard.
Starr: “John plowed in here with Honey Badger ferocity?”
Of course that line made me re-watch The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger video.
While Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Kristina (Lindsay Morgan) discussed Sam’s feelings for McBain, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was trying to get the Honey Badger out of jail. She also wanted to know his intentions for Sam. One of Alexis’ greatest strengths, and occasional Achilles heel, is her overprotection of her daughters. This is one time Alexis needs to be protective of Sam. The wounds Jason (Steve Burton) inflicted on Sam haven't scabbed over yet.
Thanks to Starr, Todd dropped the charges against McBain.
Sonny (Maurice Benard) had Trey (Erik Valdez) kidnapped and brought to a boxing ring, where the two men faced off over Kristina. I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I’m sorta, kinda, maybe, just a little, beginning to enjoy Sonny. Now that the mob aspect of his screentime is being toned down,.Sonny is much more tolerable.
It was actually fun to see him in the role of protective father. I wonder if Trey will take Sonny up on that offer to bring his folks to brunch?
B&B BYTES: Liam, Liam, Liam…Sometimes The Bold and the Beautiful reminds me of The Brady Bunch. B&B did nothing more than tread storyline water on Wednesday. Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) talked about Liam (Scott Clifton). Hope (Kim Matula) and Rick (Jacob Young) talked about Liam. Ridge (Ronn Moss) and Taylor (Hunter Tylo) talked about Steffy. Steffy then talked to Liam. Marcus (Texas Battle) and Dayzee (Kristolyn Llyod) cuddled and talked about, well, themselves.
