Did The Young and the Restless really have an Avery (Jessica Collins)/Dylan (Steve Burton) flashback about some rock she gave him, followed later by another flashback when he was filling an “on the rocks” drink order? #StoneColdBoring.
These establishing scenes were almost as idiotic as The Bold and the Beautiful’s recent word of the day, “sabotage.” Pet rocks do not get viewers invested in the past relationships of new characters. To borrow from Kay Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper), "Dear God in heaven".
Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) continued to do their not-so-subtle flirting dance, using her designs as an excuse. Cane told Chelsea he believes they are kindred spirits. I expect a Lane-fan chartered airplane, the Goodyear blimp and/or a hot-air balloon to be flown over the Y&R studios in protest any second.
Congressman Wheeler (Mark Pinter) stopped by Avery’s to try and convince her to let him help with the wrongful verdict case. He told her he was trying to avoid bad publicity.
Noah (Robert Adamson) gave Adriana (Jhoanna Flores) the money and then told her to hit the road.
At Jabot, Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Leslie (Angell Conwell) started making out, but she stopped it before it went too far. As she was leaving to get ready for the club opening, Leslie ran into Wheeler at the elevator. He recognized her as Valerie.
Sharon (Sharon Case) wanted Adam’s (Michael Muhney) house to go with her to Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) second attempt at opening his club. She told him she wasn’t going to let him wallow in self-pity. Of course she eventually convinced him to go.
