Christine is so worried about Paul and what might have been between him and Nikki that she is going a bit nuts. Sure Nikki and Paul have a son, but that doesn’t mean anything. It doesn’t mean that Paul loves her any less now than before he found out about Dylan, but Christine has always been a bit of a worrier when it comes to Paul and Nikki. I do think that Nikki and Paul would have made a great couple back in the day and loved it when they showed the flashback of the two of them, but I’m sure that they would not have lasted. No relationship ever does in a Soap.

Ian and his lawsuit against Nikki are a joke. Ian is a joke, but I’m sure he will do all he can to make her pay for something that she really didn’t have any notice of. She didn’t know that Ian could not have been Dylan’s father until Paul was shot. I’m sure Victor will be coming to the rescue of Nikki once again.

What is up with Victoria? She is with Stitch then heads over to see Billy to let him know that she is leaving town for a few days, but acts as if she is happy about being with him. Then when Chelsea comes in she is all bent out of shape because they are friends. What does she want? Does she want her cake and to eat it too? She has Stitch wrapped around her little finger and also has Billy jumping through hoops for her, and she still isn’t happy. I wonder if the DNA comes back as Billy’s if she will even tell the truth. Probably not! She will say it is Stitch’s baby just to keep Billy away.

Chelsea is on her way to finding out who the real Stitch is. He did not want to discuss the friend that they may have in common from Illinois either. Who did he kill? That story needs to unfold a bit faster and Adam needs to get back quicker, before Billy moves in with Chelsea or before Billy finds the camera that Adam has in the baby’s room.

What in the world is up with Quinn? I have to say that I always thought she was out there, but didn’t realize how far out there she truly was. So glad that Deacon had the commonsense to fill Wyatt in on the fact that she made that sword and said she had to take care of something. She would have killed Liam if he had not gotten there. Liam and Wyatt will bond over this, but will this bonding of the two boys interfere with Liam and Hope? Will the drama begin again with the three of them? Or will Ivy coming to town have something to do with Wyatt and Liam?

Glad that Rick has not said anything to Ally yet about the tape he heard with Oliver on it, but not sure how much longer that story will stay quiet. I’m sure that someone is going to let it slip and Ally will be heartbroken and go crazy and do some damage to someone/something.

Ridge is not the man he was before he went after Brooke and he is letting Katie in on the secret, but will she be able to keep it a secret? Will she let her sisters in on this secret and try to get them to help her figure out a way to help Ridge? Ridge is making some headway with his memory, but will he be able to put all the pieces together? Will Spencer be brought down?

I hope that you all have a great weekend and be sure to watch WDBJ7 next week for all of the twists and turns that will be happening on Y&R and B&B. I know I will be sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens with some of the story’s and anxiously waiting for Phyllis to return.

Not sure where to begin this week with everything that is going on in Genoa City and in L.A.!

Looks like both soaps are trying to win a couple more Emmy’s with the story lines for this summer season.

So happy to see that Paul is doing so well after the surgery, but not liking what Dylan has to go through.

Dylan has just found out that his dad is a great guy and not that awful Ian, but will he live long enough to enjoy life as Paul’s son? I certainly hope so. Paul also deserves to have Dylan in his life. With Ricky gone, this will give Paul another chance. Not to mention Avery and Dylan; she thought she lost him once already and she should not have to mourn him all over again.

Mariah is beginning to have a little bit of a hold on Nick. It appears that Nick is beginning to see Mariah in a different light. Maybe she will wake up to Ian’s intentions before it is too late. It would be nice to see her get a chance to make a new life for herself, but with Ian in her head that is not going to be an easy task.

Summer telling Austin that she is in love with him...what on Earth is she thinking? I guess because he was her first, she is now in love with him. I can’t believe that she was able to bail him out of jail and hire him a defense attorney. Does she really think Austin is going to be her one and only?

So glad that she was advised NOT to testify for Austin, that would be a huge mistake, but it really doesn’t matter now because they have gotten married! Can you believe that she ran off and did that? Did you see the look on Jack’s face? Phyllis needs to come out of her coma, get back to Genoa City and straighten Summer out.

This love affair with Austin is just crazy.

This thing with Stitch and Kelly is ridiculous. Can you believe that they are brother and sister? I had heard from someone who works here that she thought that would be the case, but I honestly did not.

Now who did Stitch murder? Is he in a witness protection program or something? What could he have done that was so bad that his wife would move to Australia and take his son with her? I hope that the writers do not drag this out all summer.

Is Chelsea seriously going to try to get back with Billy? I hope not, I want the new Adam to come in and sweep her off of her feet. I think that she would be much better off with Adam than with Billy. Victoria needs to put her attitude back up on the shelf when it comes to who Billy is with and why. She is the one who wanted the divorce and now she is showing her claws when it comes to Chelsea being with Billy. I think the jealousy card doesn’t need to be played by Victoria at all. She is the one who is pregnant and not sure who the daddy is!

Devon is going downhill really fast with his drinking and sulking over Hillary. Neil has to know that there is something between those two. If he doesn’t, he needs to open his eyes. The elevator scene should have been enough for him to see the truth, but I guess not!

Will Devon get Hillary or will she stay with Neil? Will something bad happen to Devon because of his drinking? Is he going to fall off the roof of the Athletic Club?

Can Jill really tell which necklace is the fake? It would be so funny if she ends up letting them steal the real one instead of the fake one. Who knows if her “spiritual connection” is right! I have to say that I am not too sure about the storylines that they are giving Jill & Colin lately. I am kind of tired of the whole drama of those two.Give me some real drama to sink my teeth into.

Genoa City is not the only place with drama this week....L.A. has its share going on as well. Do we begin with Quinn? Yeah, let’s take a stab at her for starters. “Live by the sword, die by the sword” were the words Quinn spoke to Liam as she stuck his sword necklace in his throat and also while she had him backed down on the couch.
