I have been watching Y&R and B&B for what seems to be forever and still can’t figure out how the writers keep coming up with all these storylines.

Victor keeps moving ahead with all of his antics, Nikki becomes an alcoholic over and over, Phyllis is heading back to town with a truck driver, Victoria is jealous of Billy and Chelsea, Myah is now making her plans to ruin Rick and Caroline’s marriage, Bill is hoping that his sons can work things out, Hope is pregnant by a man that she doesn’t want to be married to, Ivy has fallen for Liam, the list just keeps going. Let’s break it down a little and see if we can make any sense out of any of it this week.

Looks like Victor is checking DNA for the wrong person. Victor thinks Mariah was talking about Faith, but she didn’t get all the correct information, he should be checking Nick’s DNA against Summer’s DNA.

Maybe Victor will figure it out before it is too late. Before Nick actually marries Sharon! Will Phyllis make her debut back in Genoa City just in time for the wedding or will she be too late?

Phyllis coming back to town may make Lauren happy, but I don’t see her return having a happy ending for Kelly. Sure, Jack is letting Kelly change the house up to make her happy and make her feel like it is her home, but will Jack be able to keep away from Phyllis once she gets back? Summer may have a large influence on that relationship. I’m sure her wanting her parents together may assist in Jack’s decision to leave Kelly. Of course, I am just speculating that Jack will return to Phyllis.

How long do you think Michael will be able to keep it a secret from Lauren that he is taking medication to assist him in the bedroom? Sure, he is able to keep up now, but seriously, how long? Once that news comes to light and Lauren realizes Michael is in need of help in that area I’m sure sparks will be flying between the two of them. Could open the door for Avery and Michael? Possibly!

Avery is in a bad position right now with her new business with Michael and her fear Dylan may have done something really bad to Ian. How is she going to handle all of this? Paul is also in a bad position with Christine due to his feelings and willingness to help Nikki and his newfound love for his son, Dylan.

I could not imagine being in either of those positions. Did Dylan kill Ian? Did Victor have someone kill Ian? Did Avery have something to do with his disappearance since the call came from her landline? This is going to be a long storyline.

What is the new secret that Stitch is keeping? Why does his Mom not want him to tell Victoria about it? Was his Father molesting a member of the family and that is why he killed him? Will this secret allow Victoria to see Stitch is a different light? If so, will the new light she sees him in be one that will allow her to move on with Stitch and not be so jealous of Billy and Chelsea?

Speaking of Billy and Chelsea! Where the heck is Adam? When is he going to be coming back to Genoa City? If he doesn’t get back soon he will not have a chance with Chelsea and Conner because she will be back with Billy. Not that I think this relationship will work, but I have seen other couples make it work, so I guess giving these two a shot isn’t so bad.

I can’t believe Liam has lost Hope forever! This was their chance at happiness and now to see Hope is pregnant with Wyatt’s child is just crazy! I was hoping the two of them would finally be able to be happy, but now they are both in for a life of unhappiness.

Wyatt is thinking Hope is staying because he “won”, but she is only there because of the baby, which she has not even mentioned to Wyatt. That kind of leads me to think that something may happen with the baby that would open the door for her and Liam again. I knew she would not get rid of the baby, but she may have a miscarriage before she even tells Wyatt. Weirder things have happened on these soaps.

Now that Brooke knows about the baby, will she be able to keep it a secret? If she tells Bill, will he go to Wyatt with the news? I’m thinking if she does tell Bill she will ask him to stay quiet about it so Hope can figure things out and he may just do this to keep Brooke’s faith in him. This could be a way for Bill to gain some of Brooke’s trust back.

Quinn needs to be locked up! Will Ivy do it? I would hope someone sees her for what she really is and that is a crazy woman. Hope will not have a minute’s peace being married to Wyatt if he allows Quinn back into their lives.

Next week should be interesting. Phyllis should be back in Genoa City. Victor should have the results back from the DNA. Dylan will either be in jail or out of town. Myah is going to be making more moves on Rick. Ivy may go after Liam even harder than she was. Who knows what will happen, but I know we will be able to catch it all on WDBJ7. See you all next week and have a good one.

Sept. 19, 2014

Divorce, babies, people coming out of the woodwork, lies, adultery, backstabbing, jealousy, it is all here this week. Both soaps have a lot of things going on, so let’s get started.

Neil has asked Hillary for a divorce. Of course, this could be her way out, but she is trying to convince him into letting her stay. What is she doing? She leaves Devon’s bed and goes to Neil for this meeting to hear he is willing to let her go, and she says NO! I don’t understand that move at all, but I guess we will have to wait and see what happens next.

Victoria sure does look a bit jealous of Billy and Chelsea, but why should she feel guilty now? She was the one who filed for divorce and who isn’t sure who her baby’s daddy is. I think she needs to just go back to Stitch and be done with it. If the baby is Billy’s, then I’m sure he will be a father to the child. If it is Stitch’s baby, then he will already be there for the child.

Looks like Abby is still not too sure about Stitch, but I think the way they argue with each other may mean they are beginning to warm up to each other. I know, doesn’t make much sense since they argue so much, but opposites do tend to be attracted to each other.

Nikki’s drinking is really beginning to take over her world again. Snapping at all the people around her and sneaking, she is bound to get caught soon. She has never been one to hide her alcoholism for long. I’m surprised that Maureen hasn’t already let the cat out of the bag to her kids about Nikki drinking, but I also think she is going to hold this over Nikki’s head and use it to get some money out of her.

The story between Kelly and Maureen looks to be a touchy subject to Kelly. She is not happy about her mom being in town at all. Of course, it seems like Stitch doesn’t want her around either, so she should just leave, but as I said before, she is in need of something. Probably money and what better way to get that than blackmail. Looks like Jack is going to be trying to fix the relationship between Kelly and Maureen, but will that just lead to more trouble, of course it will!

Will Phyllis be making her debut during Nick and Sharon’s wedding or the reception? It would be an awesome time for her to come back to Genoa City. She should come back during that time and have all of her memory about the fall and blow Sharon out of the water. Would I be happy, oh yea!

Kevin and Mariah seem to be getting closer these days. Misfits usually do tend to stick together. Kevin is so afraid of being alone, being in the dark, locked away, etc. and Mariah is so outgoing and out to do whatever it takes to survive. They would be a good couple together. Mariah kind of reminds me a bit of Chloe, as far as the way she goes and gets what she wants. Could be the reason Kevin seems to be getting closer to her.

Liam, Hope and Wyatt are all in a mess again, thanks to Quinn and her trip to Paris to stop Liam from marrying Hope. Yes, she has been found out, of course, she tried to lie her way out of it at first, but Liam had hard evidence against her this time. I kind of feel sorry for Wyatt for having such a horrible person for a mom, but he is the one who has allowed her back into his life, so he gets what he gets.
