For those of us that have watched these two soaps for a long time we all are kind of sure where things may be headed, but for all the newcomers it may seem like things just never end, but they do and when they do it will be time for the next big story to begin. I am so ready for the next big story to begin and for all these to end. Sometimes it seems like the writers drag the storyline’s out way too far, but I keep watching. What does that say about me? Not sure, but I am still going to keep my TV tuned to Channel 7 to keep up with all the happenings around these two towns. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and see ya’ all next week.

Young & Restless

Well, last week I was wondering if Marco (fake Jack) was going to be making his way back to Genoa City & this week we all got that answer….YES and thank goodness Jack filled Phyllis in on the whole thing or she could have really been hurt if not killed! Phyllis is not going to sit back and let Victor get away with all he has done. In a sense she was violated multiple times by Marco when she thought he was Jack & it all happened because of Victor. As far as I am concerned Victor should have to pay dearly for all he has done. I know, Victor is Victor and the villain in him is what keeps some people watching, but don’t you agree that the writers are taking some storylines too far? I think that Jack has a plan to try (and I say TRY) to bring Victor down, but I doubt we will ever see the end of this plan.

Adam following Chelsea to Paris may be is saving grace with him. Who knows, maybe Chelsea will take Adam up on his offer and start over in Paris, but I honestly do not see Adam letting go of his vengeance for Victor. I think he should come clean about being alive, killing Delia and everything else that he has done so he and Chelsea can stay together. He needs to pay for his crime, but Billy also needs to pay for shooting Adam. I know that Adam killed Delia, but it was an ACCIDENT and Billy needs to realize that so he can move on. This anger he feels for Gabriel/Adam is going to get in the way of his happiness with Victoria in the long run.

Neil certainly gave Hillary a mouthful while they were stuck in the elevator during the blackout. I kind of thought it was a bit funny, but Hillary seemed nervous. I don’t think Neil is going to tell Hillary what went on at Devon’s bachelor party, but Hillary will find out. Will she find out before she marries Devon or will it be after is the question I have? Maybe Devon’s secret will stay safe for a while and once Hillary is comfortable in her marriage to Devon the truth will come out.

I don’t like Noah and Marissa together. For one I think she is too old or she is supposed to be too old. After all she was Marco’s girlfriend and he is as old as Jack, which would make him old enough to be Noah’s grandfather. Then again this is a soap and even in real life age doesn’t seem to matter much anymore. I do think the writers needed to give Noah more time to heal from Courtney’s death. I just hope that Noah isn’t going to end up hurt because of his rushing into bed with Marissa.

When the blackout came I was actually thinking that someone else was going to die or disappear, but so far I don’t think that has happened. We all know when there is a blackout or a storm in Genoa City weird things begin to happen. Maybe the writers have so much going on right now they can’t figure out where to go with the storylines.

Maybe next week there will be an end to Marco and we will know if he was truly the one who killed Austin and Courtney. Also, if he was the one who killed them then why did he do it? What was his problem with Austin and was Courtney a casualty because she figured out the truth? Will Cain and Lilly ever be able to make things right again? Is there going to be a wedding for Hillary with a happily ever after or will Devon’s little secret come out? Is Adam going to do the right thing? Not sure about any of it, but we can all hope some of this will come to an end so there can be new storylines to keep us watching through the fall and winter months ahead.

Bold & Beautiful

Looks as if Stephanie may have gotten away with the murder of Ally. Thorne is suffering so bad over this and Ivy is trying to tell him what really happened, but Wyatt keeps talking her out of it. I think Thorne needs to see the video and Stephanie needs to pay, but what does it matter what I think to the writers of this line? If they show him the video now what will they have to write about for the next 6 months or so?!

What in the world is up with Myah’s father? He is up to no good and I hope that Rick or someone in the Forrester family can figure it out before Myah gets hurt. At first I thought it was all about the big house, expensive cars and money to him, but after seeing how he looked at Rick and Myah yesterday I’m not sure of that anymore. I think he is out to hurt Myah for being transgender. Like she had a choice in the matter. Myah/Myron didn’t choose to be transgender and he needs to realize that and move on.

The wedding is supposed to take place soon, but will Myah’s father be able to walk her down the aisle or will this be when he gets his revenge on Myah for not staying Myron? Who knows maybe he won’t do anything and just let it happen so he can live off of Myah’s good fortune and the Forrester money?

Thomas coming back to town was not for Stephanie! He is out to take his dad’s girlfriend and now that Ridge knows Caroline wants to have a family that may have opened up the door for Thomas. Thomas can give Caroline a family and Ridge has told her he is too old to start a new family. Good for you Ridge! You finally realized that you are not the young man you once were. You may have to let Caroline go so she can be truly happy in her life, but will Ridge sacrifice his own happiness to ensure Caroline has true happiness in life? Guess we just have to wait and see, as usual.


Once again I have no idea where all these plots are going to end up, but I am certainly going to keep my eyes on WDBJ7 to see where they may or may not be heading. Sure it is all fantasy, but it is also addictive and for me I have been addicted to Y&R since the early 1980s and to B&B since it first aired. Sure you can go a month or two without watching and then catch up within a couple of episodes, but I am still drawn to these two shows. I hope that for those of you who watch them you get just as much enjoyment out of them as I do. I think the best thing I get out of them is knowing that my life may not be as glamorous as theirs, but my life is definitely not filled with near as much drama. I like how my life has turned out, but I also like watching the ones on these two soaps fall apart and then get rebuilt again. Keep your TV’s tuned to your Hometown station WDBJ7 and I will see you again next week. Have an amazing weekend and enjoy the weather over the next couple of days.

Young & Restless

I am beginning to wonder if Marco is going to make his way back to Genoa City to seek revenge on Jack, Victor and Marissa. I think if Marco does come back to Genoa City, Phyllis will know in an instant something just isn’t right and look into things a little better this time around. She is already wondering what is going on with Jack (or is it already Marco) now that Jack wants to go on a honeymoon again and since he isn’t the same man he was before the shooting. This is going to get very interesting, but I’m sure this time around it will be much for confusing.

I’m glad that Kevin and Mariah didn’t believe all of Marissa’s story about the accident. If they had not went to the lake looking for the car and Marco’s body then we would not have known that he is out there somewhere. Although in soap opera storylines even when there is a body as proof that someone has died they may not really be dead.

Chelsea loves Adam so much, but she can’t keep going down the road of pain with him. That is understandable, but why doesn’t Adam just come clean? Tell everyone who he is and suffer whatever consequences he has to suffer. Be a man, Adam! The longer he runs from all he has done the harder the system is going to be on him in the long run. Maybe, just maybe if he comes clean Chelsea will want to be with him, but as long as he keeps hiding behind Gabriel there is not a chance for them.

Looks like Neil is going to get his revenge on Hillary and Devon after all. Colin has slipped a little something into Devon’s glass and now he has captured him with a paid escort on his cellphone. At first I thought Colin was going to use it as blackmail, but then Colin sent the video to Neil. What will Hillary think when she sees that Devon was behind closed doors with another woman? Will she believe that Devon didn’t do anything (which he probably won’t because he will pass out) or will she just suspect that Devon did? Should be interesting to see.

I wish Cain would just forgive Lilly and the two of them be a happy family, but NO they have to keep Joe in Genoa City to become Lilly’s new love interest. I am not liking this storyline at all. I don’t like Joe and wish they would have sent him packing instead of Avery. Cain is going to lose his family if he doesn’t stop and pay attention to what is going on. Lilly has forgiven Cain for a lot of things over the past years, but she makes one mistake and he calls it quits.

I certainly hope that the writers are not setting up a storyline for Paul to be leaving the show. He is one of the better characters on the show. Paul having a heart attack is not good. Maybe they are doing this to make a spot for Heather to come back. That would be nice. I don’t think that Heather and Dylan have been introduced yet, but I could be wrong.
