The Young and the Restless opened with a clip of Peter Bergman telling fans how much he appreciated them welcoming him into their homes. The montage featured classic flashbacks of Jack, his family, friends and of course Victor (Eric Braeden).
Victor and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) pledged their love to one another in her hospital room to the hum of “Amazing Grace”. Victor swayed around with his eyes closed to the tune, as Justice of the Peace Clarice Collins (Sheryl Underwood) blessed their relationship.
Then, my jaw literally dropped when a nurse pulled out a tambourine and burst into a rendition of "When the Saints Go Marching In.” I have watched a lot of eye raising things on The Young and the Restless over the years, hello Kevin (Greg Rikaart) in a chipmunk costume, but this was just surreal. In the words of Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper), “Dear God in heaven!”
Nick (Joshua Morrow) tried to convince Avery (Jessica Collins) to abandon her case, because it was too dangerous. However, she told Nick she couldn’t. Avery insisted she was on the right track, and had to follow through with it. When they returned to Avery’s apartment, they discovered it had been ransacked.
Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Leslie (Angell Conwell) argued about her going to Milwaukeeto keep tabs on her dad’s case. Leslie worried about how she could keep Neil safe, if her father came to Genoa City. They ended up in bed together.
Dylan (Steve Burton) checked out Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) car and told her she needed a jump. Unfortunately, she didn’t have any jumper cables. Later, Dylan found out his father had died while he was away from the hospital.
I can never get enough of Jack and Phyllis (Michelle Stafford). It doesn’t hurt that they have so much chemistry and history. Phyllis told him she was worried about his possible drinking. She also expressed her concern that the alcohol might act as a trigger for Jack's addiction to prescription drugs.
