Will Victor get away with having Phyllis treated with this new technique without any of her family being made aware of it? Sure, he will, he is VICTOR NEWMAN!

I am still a bit on the fence with Devon and Hillary. Not sure if I would rather see her with Neil or Devon.

If she is with Devon then she would be with him because of passion and the want to be with him, but I think that she is staying with Neil because she feels a need to not hurt him.

As for B&B happenings for this week, not a lot, but then again, the writers are getting a bit blah, my opinion.

Ridge now knows that Bill was the one who ordered him to be dumped from the helicopter and they are heading back to fill Brooke in on this secret. Will this mean that Bill is on his own and that Brooke is going to try to get Ridge back? Will Deacon be able to move in on Brooke?

Glad that Ally has forgiven Oliver, they seem to make a fairly cute couple. Oliver does seem to really care about Ally. Darla being in the cloud so much makes me a bit nervous; does that mean Ally is going to flip out soon because she is seeing her dead Mom so much?

Where in the world are Thorne and Taylor? What happened with their love story? Will Wyatt win back Hope or will he move on to the new Forrester, Ivy? I think that she will end up trying to go after Liam before Wyatt.

I am anxious to see if Ivy puts up with all the things that Hope does or if she will stand up to Hope when it comes to love and who she wants. I am so sick of Hope and all her better than anyone attitudes. Someone needs to put her in her place and I am thinking Ms. Ivy may be just the one to do it.

That’s it for this week. Should be some interesting things going on for next week with both soaps.

Phyllis is supposed to make her debut in August, so that should be happening really soon. Going to be interesting to see if Jack wants Kelly or if he will move on with “Red”....keep watching Your Hometown News Leader, WDBJ7 and see ya’ next week. Have a great weekend.

Love triangles, memory loss, memory recovery, regrets, past loves, etc....the plots just keep coming on Y&R and B&B. This has been one interesting week.

Let’s start off with Devon, Hillary and Neil. What is going to happen with this family? Will Devon leave town or will Hillary give into her feelings for him and cut Neil loose?

I think Cain will end up having more to do with the breakup of Neil and Hillary than he thinks. He needs to speak up and let the cat out of the bag! Neil is going to regret buying Hillary a house when he finds out that she is in love with his son and wants to be with him. I do think that Hillary has some feelings for Neil, but I think her passion is for Devon.

Christine is sure having a difficult time dealing with Paul not wanting to have a baby at this point in his life, but is that what her problem is or is it mainly the fact that he has a son with Nikki? I am thinking a little bit of both. Nikki and Paul make a great couple and had Paul known that Nikki was pregnant back in the day, they may have married and had a family. Paul is right to question having a child now, with his health as it is at this time.

Dylan is NOT happy at all with Avery and the fact that she is helping Austin in his defense. Is it just that or is Dylan feeling guilty about Paul getting shot and Avery getting kidnapped? Maybe a little of both...guilt for those two things on top of the guilt that he has been feeling for his friend that died during the War. Dylan is going to have a long road ahead of him to try to come to terms with everything that he has been through in the past few years.

Esther is beginning to see that Jill is not as upset as one would think since the necklace has been “stolen.” I still think that the one that they gave the thief was the real one and she actually has the fake.

Wouldn’t that just be a hoot? Will Esther and even Lauren figure out what is going on with Jill and Colin before it is too late?

Nice to see Jack and Nick coming together for Summer, even if the marriage probably won’t last. Sharon is having all these visions and beginning to put some things together. Will she put it all together before Phyllis comes out of her coma or will Phyllis be the one to bring Sharon down when she gets back to Genoa City? That is going to be a storyline that I am sure to NOT miss!

Glad to see Liam and Wyatt being brothers, but I have a sinking feeling that Wyatt is up to no good in his intentions. Will he try to get Hope back? I think so. Liam is being so naive about his newfound relationship with his brother.

Oliver is doing his best to make things right with Ally, but it is going to be enough? I believe that Oliver will be able to win Ally over and I also think he truly has feelings for her.

This has been an interesting week for both soaps! Not a lot of things going on, but you can certainly tell that things are going to be heating up soon on both of them.

Looks like Summer and Austin are going to be having a real wedding before he is sent to prison and divorces Summer. Right! I do not think that he will be divorcing her at all. I think that he will get off with very little jail time, if any, and that they will stay together. Wouldn’t it be nice if Phyllis were to wake up soon and nip this all in the bud? She would not put up with this for one minute. Summer would not be married to Austin and she definitely would not be spending her trust fund on his attorney fees.

I seriously LOL’d when Lilly pushed Hillary into the pool. That was hilarious. I am glad that Lilly is beginning to have a backbone on the show. For so long she has played this poor, innocent, naive young lady who just let whatever happens happen, but not anymore! She knows that Hillary is not good for Neil and she does not want them together, but what will she do when she figures out that Devon is also in love with this woman?
