Blasts from the Past: YnR – Kay and Dickson’s Jill

Kay wants custody of Phillip… Uses Pictures of Jill and John as leverage:

Kay wants to expose Jill’s affair to John Abbott

Quick YnR/BnB comments

Cane vs. Ab…bott?  Oh dear, Billy Abbott, what have you DONE?   Well played, writers, well played.  The looks on Cane and Jill’s faces when Bill announced that he is part of the takeover of Jabot, and will help return the company to his family?  OUCH!  The YnR writers have earned a holiday bonus this year!  I can’t wait to tune in to tomorrow’s episode.  I love the consistency and complexity of the YnR’s current storylines.  If this show isn’t in the lead for ‘Best Drama’ this Emmy season, I’ll be shocked and saddened.

BnB writers?  WHOA!  You’re firing on all cylinders!  The fact that her mother took her ‘sacrifice’ and then threw away Phoebe’s Uncle-boyfriend Rick?  So classic, so selfish, so Taylor.   Taylor won’t be any better able to ‘make it up’ to Phoebe than Brooke was able to make it up to her daughter when she did the same.  Oddly enough, both women dumped their daughter’s ‘first loves’ , who were nothing more than temporary fixes in their lives, for Ridge.

Now if only the writers would grant Rick a bit of humility after the upcoming incident with Phoebe.  We know that the writers have given the character anger and arrogance in abundance.  I’m ready to see Kyle Lowder’s Rick deliver on something more – like humility, shame, and sorrow.

Speaking of, what a tragic sense of irony.  Phoebe wants to sing at Ridge and Brooke’s rehearsal dinner.  She and Uncle-boyfriend Rick sang together for Brooke and Ridge, before.  Was it at their last engagement party?  Spooky.
