Wednesday, 28 September 2011:

Victor is at Crimson Lights talking to Sam and Sam tells Victor that Vicky sprained her ankle getting off of horse but Sam put some ice on it and she should be fine.  Thank you Mr. Florence Nightingale.  Now get lost! Sam likes living above the garage of Vicki's house.  Victor asks if Vicki has heard from Billy and Sam says he (Victor) needs to ask Vicki himself.

Vicki's dog is hyped up around the closet door and Vicki wonders why and is about to open the door when she does something, I think hit her hurt foot with the closet door, and thus, ends up not opening it all the way.  How odd is that.  She sits on the bench to the side of the closet.  Billy opens the door slightly but decides not to reveal himself to Vicki as he remembers Victor's threat that Billy is only back in Genoa City for his daughter, Delia, and not to see Victoria.

Niel is at Katherine's house and apologizes to her for dumping his family's problems on her lap.  Just then Devon walks in and is shocked to see Neil there.

Ronin, in his office, is talking to Boyd (the other useless detective) about Victor's shoes, the ones that left a footprint next to Diane's body.  Abby walks into the precinct  on her cell phone leaving a message for her mother saying she's at Detective Malloy's office in hopes of making sure he understands that Ashley had nothing to do with Diane's murder.  She overhears another Boyd tell Ronin about an abandoned lock-box at the Athletic Club and Ronin matches the key found in Diane's throat to the lock-box.  Really, Malloy?  You've had the key how long and you just now realized what that key belongs to?  I thought they had people that could figure that out, or him, being the great detective he is, would have looked at the key and figured it out.

Ashley and Tucker are at GloWorm talking shop.  Ashley wants to be involved in Jabot again.  But Tucker travels back in his mind to the day he struck a deal with Jack that if he gave Jack complete control of Jabot he (Jack) would get it back from Katherine.  Present day, Tucker says that the company is out of his hands.  Ashley spots an old friend and leaves for a second.  Tucker calls Jack and tells him he filed the lawsuit against Katherine and wants Jack to testify in court.

John's Ghost visits Jack - John's Ghost is basically Jack's conscious.

Victor is on the phone with Vicki - Vicki goes into the other room and Billy is about to make is exit, but there's a knock on the door and he hides somewhere else.  Its none other than boring ass Sam.

Molloy looks at the key  again just as Abby enters his office saying she needs to talk to him.  Malloy says he has to leave and kicks her out of his office.

Jack tells John that he is teaming up with a man he doesn't like to take something away from a life long friend and he may have reservations about doing it, but he's going to have to get over it for right now.

Ashley is back with Tucker and Ashley wants to know what Tucker's strategy is to get Jabot back.  Ashley is still bucking for the CEO position.

John is talking with Jack - again Jack is fighting with his conscious.  John agrees with Jack in him double crossing Katherine to get Jabot back.

Devon tells Katherine and Neil that he wants to buy the building he was going to rent the studio space in.  Neil says that if Devon buys the building he would lose money in the long run because the place would depreciate over 39 years, but if he leases the place he would make more money. Devon comes back with a smart remark of him not knowing this because he didn't go to grad school and major in accounting like Neil wanted him to.

Billy is in the dining room listening to Boring Sam and Vicki talking.  (OMG!  When are they going to get rid of Sean Patrick Flannery!!!!!!!!!!) They begin wondering where the dog is (I can't figure out the dog's name, but he's so cute I'm going to name him Sean) and Sean is in the dinning room looking up at Billy.  The dog brought a ball with him (I guess him and Billy used to play catch, fetch, whatever its called).  Billy throws the ball away into another room and dog goes and gets it.  At the same time, Boring (Sam's name throughout these blogs) goes to look for Sean.  While this is happening, Billy makes his exit out the front door without Vicki noticing when she is sitting right there on the couch - RIGHT BY THE FRONT DOOR!  She's facing the kitchen when she hears the door shut and turns towards it.  Didn't she feels a breeze or something?

Malloy is at the bar at the Athletes Foot Club where the other detective brings him the lock-box.  OK. I have to say I thought they were talking about something big - like a locker you would see at terminals.  They are talking about one tiny box.  Anyhoo.  Back to the show. Abby is looking on as Malloy is looking at the box.

Katherine tells Devon to speak to some accounting people about his options and then come back to her on what he decides.  Neil has to make a phone call and goes into Katherine's library.  Katherine tells Devon that Neil wants him to succeed and Devon says that Neil told him the same thing.

Ashley is STILL trying to talk Tucker into making her CEO of Jabot.  Tucker has a meeting to get to and leaves.  Ashely calls her voicemail and hears Abby's message.  Just then Victor sees her and asks what's wrong and Ashley tells him.  He says he told Abby to stay away from Malloy  Ashley wants Victor to speak to Abby again.  She leaves.  Victor calls Abby and while she's on the phone, Malloy leaves with the box in hand.  He didn't open it up at the Athletes Foot Club.  Abby tells Victor that Malloy has the box and the confession Abby made on tape is possibly in the box.  Just as she gets off the phone with Victor Malloy walks up behind her and tells her that he's noticed her following him and he wants to know why is she so interested in the box.

Billy is back at his trailer where John's Ghost shows up.

Boring is talking with Vicki - he's mumbling something.  I thought Victor mumbled, but this fool CAN mumbles.  He leaves.  Vicki sends another e-mail to Billy about how she can't move on and how much she misses him and that she loves him.

Tucker is at Jack's office with the paperwork giving Jack complete control over Jabot after he (Jack) testifies against Katherine, but Jack wants Tucker to sell him Jabot, not just giving him complete control.  Jack won't testify unless Tucker agrees to his demands.  Tucker agrees with Jack.  Ashley walks in on Tucker and Jack and wants to know what they are up to.

Devon is talking about the building when Katherine gets a call and leaves the room, leaving Devon and Neil alone.   Devon apologizes to Neil for getting an attitude with Neil when he knows that Neil is just looking out for him.  They hug!  Everyone say AWWWWWW!

Victor is at the Athletes Foot Club looking for Abby but she's at Malloy's office waiting for another detective (How many detectives does it take to open a lock-box?) to open the box and inside they find a diary.  Malloy wants the diary to be taken to forensics right away.  Hey Malloy!  Here's an idea for you, how about reading the diary and figuring out who it belongs to and if you can't figure it out by the words on the front page, My name is Diane Jenkins, then take it forensics.  In other words, how about doing some real detective work?

Molloy tells Abby to stick around because he has some more questions for her but she says he can speak to her lawyer - as soon as she hires one and she leaves.  Malloy and Boyd look at the suspect board again for the millionth time and focuses on Abby.

Victor and Abby are at the Athletes Foot Club talking about the lock-box and the key found in Diane's mouth.  Abby is worried about the video confession she made and someone having it and it getting in Malloy's hands.

Boyd walks in with Victor's shoes and said he compared the tracks to the ones found by Diane's body and they are a match.  Molloy is one happy camper right now.

Katherine comes back into the room but gets another phone call telling her that Tucker is suing her to get Jabot back.

Tucker tells Ashley he was there to talk to Jack about the lawsuit, to gather information but conversation didn't go as he wished, but Ashley doesn't believe either one of them.  She reminds Tucker that he said he wouldn't keep any secrets from her.

Vicki is still working on her e-mail to Billy.  I love how they have the name of her laptop covered like we couldn't figure out its a Dell.  By the way, her email address is  BAHAHAHAHA!

Billy is telling John that he needs to find away to ignore that Vicki exits and just then he gets an e-mail from her and he deletes it.


Tucker confesses to Ashley about the lawsuit
Neil tells Sophie she used to have integrity and wants to know what changed.
Victor tells Adam that everyone knows he (Adam aka Bed Head) killed Diane and he (Victor) is going to make sure he pays for it.

Until tomorrow,

One Of A Kind

I was searching around on the Internet for other Y&R recap blogs to get ideas on how to go about this and realized there aren't any. That actually fueled my fire to get this blog up and running again.

It put me in my gansta blogger mode and here's a picture to prove it.

The Y & R Gangsta Blogger.

Still Trying To Figure It Out

I really thought I could find a way to summarize Y & R but I have yet to figure a way. There's so much going on I feel like everything is important. I want to deliver good content to my readers, is what it ,comes down to.

Yesterday, I spent more time on the show than I wanted to. My work has me at the computer for eight hours - literally. So when I get home all I want to do is relax.

I have tried watching the show as I would any other, but find myself taking notes and over thinking if something is important or not. Again, thinking about good content.

I need to let everything go and watch the show without taking notes and write from the heart, like I do for the Housewives of Beverly or any other show or movie I blog about.

So, I am asking for a bit more time for me to find a way to do this because I do enjoy blogging the show.

I'm going to be trying a few things out and see what works best for me while delivering good quality content to you.

My name is Nikki and I approve this message.

26 September 2011: Monday:

Both Victor and Jack are at Billy's trailer trying to find evidence of where Billy could have gone, but little does Jack know that Victor knows where Billy is and is only there to act just the opposite.  Per usual, those two exchanges words, all the while Billy listens from the outside.  Jack says he has somewhere to be but he's not leaving Victor behind to find something and not tell anyone.  Victor leaves and Jack follows behind.  As they leave Billy emerges from the side of his trailer and goes inside with a bottle of scotch, whiskey, something in his hand.  Just as he is about to open the bottle Victor comes demanding to know what Billy is doing.  Billy gives him is thoughts and then Victor leaves.  Soon after Kevin shows whining about Chloe being all over him with kisses because she thinks he saved her daughter's life.  Billy is not understanding why Kevin is having a problem with this when this is a chance for him and Chloe to get back together.  I didn't even know they broke up - why don't people clue me in on things sometimes.  Or how I about go to read the recaps on CBS's site - or even better - how about I just watch the darn show on the weekends like I used to.  OK.  I'm done yelling at myself.  Kevin tries to deny he wants to get back with Chloe but finally admits it.  However, Billy isn't interested anymore in what Kevin has to say or feels and wants him gone.  Kevin leaves.  Victor shows back up with a bigger bottle of whatever Billy brought with him.  Victor says that he wants to make sure Billy has enough so he doesn't risk going out and being seen.  Billy takes the bottle of whatever and pours it down the drain.  He says his daughter is going to need him and he wants to give her the best Billy he can.

Ronin shows up at the hospital where Chloe is and she tells him they found a bone marrow for Delia and she tells him it was Kevin.  But in reality, the donor was Billy, Delia's father.  Although Billy has been found by Victor, its all hush hush and one else knows safe for Michael and Kevin and I'm not sure why they are the only ones to know this.  But then again, I haven't watched the show in about two weeks.  The last time I watched is when Victor got Billy out of some prison he was in where he had access to a chalk like rock where he could mark on the wall, via ticks, how many days he had been locked up.  I think he was kidnapped or something, but who knows and who cares.  The point is, Billy gave his marrow to Delia via Kevin and now Kevin is a hero in Chloe's eyes.  Ronin and Chloe talk some more about something that didn't mean much to me and finally he leaves.  Later on Vicki shows up at the hospital to visit Chloe and check on Delia.  She tells Delia that Kevin is bit uncomfortable with all the attention he's getting.  Chloe then asks if anything is going on between Vicki and that fool named Sam.  Vicki says no.  I sure hope not!  I thought I paid someone to run him over?

Kevin and Michael are talking at Crimson Lights about what Kevin did and Michael ask what does Gloria think about all this and Kevin says that she hasn't returned any of his phone calls.  Well, as mentioned, I haven't watched the show in two weeks so I don't anything about her getting locked in a cellar and I guess Kevin didn't bail her out because he got side tracked or something.  I'm not sure.  I know I saw Colin get locked in a wine cellar by Genevieve and that was the last I saw of the show.  I'm going to have to read up on Gloria got locked in the cellar and why she was upset when she was down there with all her best friends (the wine bottles).

Sharon is talking to Daisy Carter (Sheila Carter's daughter for those of you new to the country or haven't watched the show since 1926) about something non-important when Avery (Sharon's lawyer) shows up and says to Daisy that all has been arranged and taken care of.  In the wonderful Sharon fashion, she stands there with a shocked look on her face that Avery is representing Daisy and the reason being is, when Avery (who is Phyllis's sister) took on Sharon's case she said she gave all her other cases to her colleagues so she could just concentrate on Sharon's.  But now, she's taking on Daisy's case.  As for Daisy, what Avery (every time I hear that name, I think of the office products, like business care maker, CD label maker, printing labels) did for Daisy was serve Phyllis papers making her bring Lucy, Daisy's daughter, to the hoosegow so Daisy can see her.  Now if you know Daisy, she is not doing this out of the love for her child.  She's doing it to antagonize Phyllis.  But why Avery would get involved, I don't know.  Phyllis seems to think Avery is doing it to get back at Phyllis.  Avery claims she's not.

Ronin is walking in the park - oh wait, do I hear a Chicago song coming on.  Yes I do.  And to make things even better, how about a video to go with that song.

While Ronin is enjoying little free time he has with him being the lead detective on the Diane Jenkins murder case that will never get solved, 

Phyllis spots him and asks him to arrest her.  He looks at perplexed (yeah, that's my new  word of the year - perplexed) she said she wants to keep Daisy from seeing Lucy.  After they exchange conversation, in which he is aware that Avery is Phyllis's sister, he tells Phyllis that the chicken pox is going around and that will buy her a week.  She leaves.  She shows up at Crimson Lights where Michael is and she tells him she has a short term solution.  Now she just needs a long term solution.  She calls the hoosegow that Daisy is in and tells whomever answers the phone that Lucy has the chicken pox and won't be able to go the prison.  I am so surpised that Phyllis didn't have to go through the following:
Thank you for the calling Genoa City's ONLY Hoosegow that serves as a holding cell, a jail and a prison where     
all out inmates get unlimited number of visitors in a day.
If you know the name of the inmate you are calling for, press 1
If you know then name of the cellmate of the inmate you are calling for, press 2
If you are unaware that you can visit inmates any time of day or night and when we say night we mean even at      
11pm, press 3
 If you don't know any of this, please stay on the line and someone, we don't know who, will be right with 
 you.  And the hold music is Jailhouse Rock.

After she gets through with that phone call, she calls Nick, but after the first ring, which barely stopped ringing, she says to Michael, he's not answering.  Really Phyllis?  Nick isn't answering?  I wonder why that is since his phone barely rang. Good Grief.  But there's a better reason he's not answering and it's because he's at GloWorm chatting it up with Avery.  Yes ladies and gents, Nicholas Newman is trying to find out what's wrong with Avery and then he comforts her by giving her a gift that was meant for Phyllis, which was a video game.  I hope it was Medal of Honor - you know the good games when they were in World War II, but I hear the Afghan stuff is pretty good.  Oh see, there I go digressing.

While she's trying to call Nick, he's at GloWorm talking with Avery telling her that he overheard her and Phyllis talking.  Basically, he's being nosey and wants to know what the history is between her and Red.  Avery states that there was a lot of trouble when her and Red were younger (I take that to me the parents constantly fighting) and take take themselves away they would play video games.  Avery says that Red was always good at the games and would give Avery tips but still would beat her.  Nick states that he and Red used to play video games all the time as well.  And that's how he ended up giving the video game to Avery and not Phyllis who it was intended for.  Nick is just a dirty lil hamster.

In between all this craziness going on, Chloe goes to Crimson Lights to talk with Kevin and apologize for the kiss she gave him earlier and blah blah blah.  Well as she about to leave, Kevin grabs her and kisses her.  Oh, they are on the patio or whatever that area is where everyone congregates.  Kevin and Mike were out there earlier in the show.  Phyllis and Mike were there mid show.  Phyllis Avery were there shortly thereafter, and now Chloe and Kevin.  Wait, Chloe, Kevin, their lips and Ronin who stands there perplexed and then uses another entrance to the front counter.

The show ended with Vicki writing Billy a Dear John e-mail while doing a voice over of what she's writing.  Then they show Billy getting the email and reading the last line which states, I'm moving on without you, or something like that, and Billy wishing he hadn't poured all the booze out.

Michael visits Sharon
Colin visits Lily
Billy visits his old house but Vicki comes limping in and he has visit the coat closet.

Blogging Y & R Again - Beginning 26 Sept 2011

I will be back to blogging about Young and the Restless, but not in the fashion as I did before.  I will not be doing a play by play.  Instead, I will be recapping the show with my opinion/take on things intertwined.

I will begin on Monday, 26 September 2011.
