MONDAY, AUGUST 27, 2012
At Crimson Lights, Chelsea and Adam meet with Chloe to discuss their web page. Adam and Chelsea are puzzled when Chloe reports that Kevin was not able to meet with them. In the meantime, a nervous Kevin arrives at Phyllis's apartment to talk about Beth's appearance on Restless Style Television. Kevin discovers that Phyllis is still cleaning and is determined to wipe away ALL of Tim's fingerprints. Phyllis orders a grumbling Kevin to help her clean. When Kevin brings up the sketch which the police made from Beth's description of the encyclopedia salesman, Phyllis points out that IF the sketch looked like Kevin, Michael would have recognized him - and would already be questioning Kevin. Phyllis insists that Kevin has nothing to worry about because Kevin has no logical motive for wanting Tim out of the way. As Phyllis explains that she is the only person who would have any type of motive for wanting Tim out of the way, Phyllis insists that Kevin needs to help Phyllis get rid of the rug so that there is no way to tie Phyllis to Tim's death.
At the same time, Michael and Ronan meet at the police station and review Beth's appearance on the Restless Style TV program. As Michael and Ronan watch Beth's description of her encounter with Phyllis, they agree that they need to get a handle on the situation. When Michael suggests that they need to question Phyllis, Ronan assures Michael that Ronan will be able to handle Phyllis.
As Neil practices basketball in the park, he is surprised when Harmony arrives. Although Neil leaps to the conclusion that Harmony came to cheer for him, Harmony declares that she has come to play. As they get started with a game, Neil stops to give Harmony some pointers, and their encounter turns romantic. Harmony and Neil decide to cool it, and make plans to catch dinner together.
Tucker meets with Sofia at Glow Worm. As Sofia begins to explain the plans which she has made to counter all of the bad publicity which Sharon has been receiving since her take-over of Newman Enterprises, Sofia is surprised when Tucker advises her to put her plans on hold, because Tucker is not all that concerned about the plunging price of Newman stock. Tucker explains that he is interested in picking up plummeting shares of Newman stock - but he wants to keep it quiet. As Tucker and Sofia discuss the possibility of Sofia arranging to make quiet purchases of Newman stock under assumed names, Tucker points out that Jack Abbott is also quietly picking up the plummeting Newman stock.
At Crimson Lights, Chelsea and Chloe chat about Sharon when Adam steps away to take a call from a reporter who has questions about Sharon's take-over of Newman Enterprises. After Chloe steps away to pick up some herbal tea, Chelsea and Adam discuss a "tagger" who has been picking up a lot of baby products under the name of "Baby N."
At Phyllis's apartment, after Kevin leaves with the wine-stained rug, Ronan arrives. Phyllis tries to distract Ronan, but Ronan produces a search warrant. Downstairs, as Kevin tosses the rug into a dumpster, he is approached by two police officers. Kevin is apprehensive as the police inform him that his car is double parked. Kevin claims that he was in a hurry because "nature called." Kevin is relieved when the police just tell him to move along.
When Beth arrives at Michael's office, Beth is surprised when Michael points out that, by talking about the investigation into Tim's death in the interview which she gave on Billy's television show - Beth has made it more difficult for the police to track down the mysterious encyclopedia salesman. Michael is astonished when Beth suddenly declares that she is positive that the encyclopedia salesman whom she saw was a lookout for Phyllis and that Phyllis MUST have had something to do with Tim's death.
In Phyllis's apartment, Phyllis watches as Ronan dusts for fingerprints, then declares that he has not found a single print in the house. Phyllis points out that her cleaning lady just did a thorough job of cleaning the apartment. When Ronan points out that Phyllis used to have a rug by the couch, Phyllis insists that she spilled red wine on the rug and got rid of it. Ronan explains the police discovered that someone hacked into the building's surveillance system and there is NO footage available of Phyllis's apartment during the estimated time of Tim's death. Ronan asks what would happen if a cyber forensics team checked into Phyllis's computer. When Phyllis attempts to stall, Ronan reminds Phyllis that she is in big trouble and just the fact that she tried to clean everything up makes her look guilty. Ronan tells Phyllis that she has two options - she can continue to stall, which will leave Ronan with no choice except to have the forensics team go over her apartment. Or Phyllis can trust Ronan and tell him what is going on. Although Phyllis continues to stall, she eventually begins to fill Ronan in on the details about Tim's death, including the fact that Tim was blackmailing her for money and romance. Phyllis tries to convince Ronan that she rolled Tim up in the rug and took him back to his apartment - alone. Ronan doesn't believe Phyllis's story - and, at that moment, Kevin arrives. When Ronan guesses that Kevin was Phyllis's accomplice, Kevin panics - and realizes that Phyllis told Ronan what was going on. , Kevin becomes determined to call Michael. Phyllis tries to stop Kevin, but she is not in time. At that moment, Michael is still discussing their case with Beth. When Michael answers his phone, Beth spots Kevin's picture on the phone - and insists that Kevin is the mysterious encyclopedia salesman who was lurking outside Tim's apartment on the night when Tim died. Michael tries to convince Beth that she has just been looking at too many mug shots. Beth reluctantly accepts Michael's explanation.
At Phyllis's apartment, Kevin is appalled when he realizes that Phyllis confessed everything to Ronan without getting some type of deal. As Phyllis tries to explain that Ronan had figured everything out, and was close to proving it, Kevin reports that two police officers questioned him after he got rid of the rug. Kevin admits that he is not sure whether or not the two police officers saw him with the rug. When Ronan asks where the rug is now - Phyllis encourages Kevin to tell Ronan - because she believes that Ronan is willing to help them.
At Crimson Lights, Chloe admits to Chelsea that she is worried about Kevin's strange behavior during the past few days. Later, Adam tells Chelsea and Chloe that he has been contacted by a large company which specializes in baby products - and they want to sell their products on Tag and Grab.
As Sofia and Tucker continue to make plans for Tucker's clandestine purchase of Newman stock, Sofia is unnerved when Neil and Harmony come in together. Sofia is annoyed when Tucker waves at Neil and Harmony and suggests that they join Tucker and Sofia. After Harmony slips away to head for the powder room, Tucker pretends that his phone is vibrating and that he needs to take this call. After Tucker leaves, Neil and Sofia make an uncomfortable attempt at small talk. Shortly, however, Sofia warns Neil to be careful around Harmony and encourages Neil NOT to overlook Harmony's past history. In the meantime, when Tucker runs in to Harmony in the hallway, Harmony is surprised when Tucker suggests that Harmony should come to work for Tucker. Harmony tells Tucker that she would need to think about it. After Harmony and Neil head to their own table, Sofia is astonished when she learns that Tucker offered a job to Harmony - and asks if Tucker is still interested in Harmony. Tucker insists that he just believes that Harmony would be an asset to his company. As Tucker leaves, he casts another glance at Neil and Harmony, laughing while they are telling jokes together.
In Phyllis's apartment, Phyllis finally convinces Kevin to tell Ronan where Kevin dumped the wine-stained rug. When Ronan prepares to leave, Kevin asks Ronan what he plans to do. Ronan explains that it is better that Kevin and Phyllis NOT know what he is planning to do. After Ronan leaves, Kevin panics - but Phyllis remains convinced that Ronan is on their side and really WILL help them. Kevin warns Phyllis that Ronan is going to regret helping Phyllis - then storms out of the apartment.
Later, when Kevin returns to Crimson Lights, Chloe, Chelsea and Adam rush to tell Kevin about the new company which wants to sell products on their web page. However, Kevin insists that he needs to speak to Chloe alone. After Chelsea and Adam leave, Kevin attempts to tell Chloe about his escapade with Phyllis. However, Kevin is interrupted when Michael arrives - and demands to know what Kevin knows about encyclopedias.
At Phyllis's apartment, Phyllis calls Ronan and tells him that she assured Kevin that they could trust Ronan - and hopes that it IS true that they CAN trust Ronan.
In the meantime, when Ronan arrives at the dumpster where Kevin dropped off the rug, Ronan discovers that two police officers have fished the rug out of the dumpster. When the police officer rolls out the rug and spots the red stain, he suggests that the stain COULD be blood.

COULD BE EVEN WORSE NEWS AHEAD?
Soap Opera Network is reporting that STEVE BURTON's contract negotiations with GENERAL HOSPITAL are NOT going well. It is well known that incoming Y&R Exec JILL FARREN PHELPS has always had a special fondness for STEVE BURTON as GENERAL HOSPITAL'S mob enforcer, JASON MORGAN. A number of reporters are suggesting that it probably would not take much for JFP to attempt to entice BURTON into accepting a role at Y&R. Could Y&R audiences be looking at "Hollywood Heights comes to Genoa City and turns into Mob Central" in the near future?
MORE VERY BAD NEWS?!
Y&R -- Although both YVONNE ZIMMA and PETER PORTE appear to be gone for now as Daisy and Ricky - the BAD news is that the ramifications of their little dust-up is scheduled to drag out for the REST of the summer. Apparently, YVONNE ZIMMA has RETURNED to YOUNG AND RESTLESS and has been taping scenes there. While these COULD be flashbacks, there is also a possibility that Daisy will turn up, alive and kicking. There IS the fact that Daisy DID figure out that Phyllis was the one responsible for running over Paul and Christine back in 1994, PLUS the fact that Daisy DID say that she had stashed copies of the documents which Daisy had uncovered which connected Phyllis to Christine and Paul's hit and run accident - in a "safe place." In the meantime, PAUL will reportedly make a new discovery about RICKY'S past, and Paul's discovery will leave Paul teetering on the brink of mental distress.
HAS GOOD NEWS TURNED INTO BAD NEWS?
Y&R -- Although there have been reports that TIIC finally noticed that a majority of the audience is outraged about the prospect of TIIC trying to turn VICTOR and SHARON into a romantic duo - and that TIIC had decided to scrap the entire idea - it now appears that TIIC have done ANOTHER 180 degree turn - and the relationship between Victor and Sharon will now move along toward ANOTHER marriage for the hapless duo. However, there are STILL REPORTS that the next obstacle which SHARON must face will be a scare about a brain tumor. Some are hoping that this will, in some way, give an explanation for Sharon's erratic behavior over the past couple of years. There have also been reports that ERIC BRAEDEN'S contract negotiations are NOT going well and IF Braeden can NOT come to an amicable agreement with SONY, Braeden will be leaving Genoa City on a more or less permanent basis, beginning in AUGUST. However, BRAEDEN'S publicist says that there are NO contract negotiations currently underway - but that BRAEDEN will take a long-scheduled vacation in August instead. MELODY THOMAS SCOTT will also be on vacation during that same time period - so both VICTOR and NIKKI will be scarce during that time period.
BABY ON BOARD?
Y&R -- There have been reports that a former Genoa City trouble maker will be headed back to Genoa City - with a baby in tow. Some are speculating that ADAM'S old girlfriend, SKYE, may be headed back to town with the news that she survived falling into a volcano, and now has a child. Other possibilities include DIANE, Patty and/or EMILY. Since ADRIENNE FRANZ has been put on recurring status at BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL, there is also a possibility that AMBER might be headed back to Genoa City - now that DANIEL is beginning to take his responsibilities as LUCY'S father seriously. There is also KEVIN'S former wife, JANA. Remember, when Kevin went to make arrangements for Jana's memorial service, Kevin was astonished when he discovered that some of Jana's distant relatives had ALREADY claimed the body!
YOUNG AND RESTLESS
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2012 -- SUMMARY OF THE MONTH'S EVENTS
Y&R -- The Good News is that Maria A. Bell has reportedly been let go in a SURPRISE move by SONY. Unfortunately, the very, very, very bad, DISASTROUS news is that JILL FARREN PHELPS will be taking BELL'S place! Having watched the way in which JFP single-handedly destroyed both OLTL and GH - we can only observe that it appears that SONY is merely jumping from the frying pan and into the fire with this move. Of course, another possibility is that SONY has decided that the time has come for SONY to get out of the SOAP business - and head honchos believe that JFP will be able to drive away enough viewers so that SONY can cancel Y&R without worrying too much about an embarrassing backlash from viewers -- Early reports are that JFP will most likely immediately fire Genie Francis, Stephen Nichols, Darnell Williams, Julia Pace Mitchell and Debbie Morgan. Veteran performers who will be immediately hustled off to the back burner will be Doug Davidson, Peter Bergman, Tracey Bregman, Melody Thomas Scott, Eric Braeden and Jeanne Cooper. Viewers will most likely begin seeing more of Lily and Cane and Phyllis.
There are now reports that the plans for JESS WALTON and TRISTAN ROGERS to return in SEPTEMBER as JILL and COLIN may be scrapped.
Reportedly - ALL of the TRUE FACTS about the part which PHYLLIS played in mowing PAUL and CHRISTINE down with a car will NOT be revealed until early FALL - when CHRISTINE returns to town again. Also - REMEMBER THAT, when Ricky discovered that Daisy had spotted the video of RACHEL'S DEATH on Ricky's computer, Ricky FIRST deleted the file - then made plans to "connect" with Daisy.

Autumn Solaris is apparently no longer posting video clips of the Young and Restless Canadian episodes. However, there ARE still Canadian viewers who have been posting video clips of the Young and Restless Canadian episodes at You Tube. However, they have kindly asked everyone NOT to post any links to their board in the hope that they will be able to keep their board open a little longer. HOWEVER, if you google AtkinsonM2 You Tube - you will most likely find it quickly enough. Atkinson M2 has ALSO established a back-up board, in case the AtkinsonM2 board runs in to "technical difficulties." You can find the AtkinsonM2 back-up board by googling AtkinsonM5 You Tube.
ABOUT CANADIAN BROADCAST RECAPS --
ALSO - I thought I would point out that if you want to read the detailed recaps for the CANADIAN broadcast REALLY early when they are posted at Soaps.com
You can surf in to the main page for Y&R at Soaps.com, then choose CAST LIST from the menu on the left. When you get to the cast list, choose a character who is mentioned in the PREVIEWS for the next day's action. For example, if NIKKI is mentioned in the previews for tomorrow's show, click on Nikki and you will be taken to the most recent RECAP which mentions Nikki. OFTEN, that will be the recap for TOMORROW'S episode, which has ALREADY aired in CANADA. Sometimes, the recap for the CANADIAN broadcast is posted as early as 4 PM Mountain time, which would be 3 PM Pacific, 5 PM Central and 6 PM Eastern.
Soaps.com also usually has a detailed recap of the following day's YOUNG AND RESTLESS Canadian episode posted by around midnight of the day BEFORE the episode airs in the United States.
