Longtime fans of ‘The Young and the Restless’, or of soap operas in general, know that holiday season is often served lightly. Character reflections on the past year are offered, current conflicts are lessened for a few days, and a momentary break in the drama takes hold. With that in mind, let’s offer some Christmas wishes for Genoa City.
The still-great ‘Victor Newman’ (Eric Braeden) has finally reunited with his son ‘Adam’ (Justin Hartley). It’s a real revival, in this instance. So, here’s hoping that the ‘Dark Knight’ gives ‘Junior’ a lasting chance to succeed. Plus, let’s hope that ‘Victor’ treats his ever-loyal wife ‘Nikki’ well in 2016.
‘Jack’ (Peter Bergman) reclaimed his life and his wife, but suffered a major financial blow at Jabot. There might be hope for more than one of the Abbott boys to achieve stability when Jason Thompson is first seen as ‘Billy’ in January as well. In any event, ‘John’ (Jerry Douglas) will keep watch over his clan, including ‘Ashley’ (Eileen Davidson), who likely has a new man (‘Dr. Neville’, as played by Michael E. Knight) in her life. Possibly, both suffering souls will be a match.
‘Sharon’ (Sharon Case) will be devastated whenever the news about ‘Sully’s’ genetic reality is revealed. However, rumors are floating that she might give birth to another child sometime in the new year, which would be great for ‘Shylan’ (Case and Steve Burton, as ‘Dylan’). Of course, ‘Nick’ (Joshua Morrow) and ‘Sage’ (Kelly Sullivan) deserve to have ‘Christian’ back as soon as possible and for ‘Dr. Anderson’ (Elizabeth Bogush) to subsequently be jailed.
In an unanticipated plot twist, ‘Nilary’ is back in business. While ‘Hilary’ (Mishael Morgan) and ‘Devon’ (Bryton James) cared for each other, the idea of ‘Neil’ (Kristoff St. John) and ‘Hilary’ Part II is actually intriguing. Their relationship reboot could restore a belief in personal redemption.
‘Marisa’ (Sofia Pernas) seems to have fallen for ‘Luca’ (Miles Gaston Villanueva), which does makes sense. Meanwhile, ‘Noah’ (Robert Adamson) is working undercover for his grandfather and uncle inside of Newman. Viewers should hope that this young man is careful, as the crime family he’s watching plays many dangerous games.
‘Lane’ is much better than ‘Loe’. Yes, ‘Lily’ (Christel Khalil) and ‘Cane’ (Daniel Goddard) are the better power couple. Now that ‘Joe’ (Scott Elrod) has rightfully been put in jail, the twins can celebrate a Merry Christmas. And, that’s also the wish of this writer for all YR fans and for readers of this digital space.
