Direct TV finally got their On-Screen Episode Guides posted for next week. In the meantime, Soaps dot com has had a detailed recap of Monday's episode posted for several hours now. A number of magazines are now reporting that Paul and Christine will become an item, leaving Nina crying on Katherine's shoulder. As expected, the good news for Paul this coming week will be that all charges against Paul, following Paul's involvement in Ricky's death, will be dropped. The bad news, of course, is that NONE of the mysterious events associated with Ricky's death - including the mystery person who was sending flowers for Ricky's grave EVERY day - will be addressed. And, most likely, will join Genoa City's growing list of unsolved mysteries. Most likely, the REST of Paul's news will be that, after Paul and Christine reunite, they will both head far, far away from Genoa City, in order to explore exciting new career opportunities. And a disappointed Nina will return to her previous job - also WAY out of town. Word is that RONAN will be the next to leave town. No surprise there. Genoa City only has room for one police type at a time, and with a Friend of Jill arriving soon to take over the police duties, the cop already in town had to be given the boot. Too bad the writers believed that it was necessary to destroy the character before hustling Ronan out of town. But destroying the character who is being given the boot appears to be Standard Operating Procedures for today's soap writers. Following is a brief synopsis of Monday's action.

YOUNG AND RESTLESS
NOVEMBER 19, 2012
At Crimson Lights, after Paul and Christine discuss the emotional turmoil which Paul has been experiencing, following the discovery of the video which Ricky made about Rachel's death, Paul and Christine share a kiss. At that moment, Nina arrives home from her recent business trip, and arrives at Crimson Lights in time to witness Paul's passionate encounter with Christine. Christine and Paul attempt to convince Nina that she is leaping to conclusions. Nina demands to know if Paul is involved with Chris again, but Paul attempts to convince Nina that she is leaping to all of the wrong conclusions. When Paul explains what he saw on the video which Ricky made about Rachel's death, Nina is sympathetic, but remains concerned about the direction which Paul's relationship with Christine appears to be taking. Nina confides that she believes that Paul is lying to himself if Paul truly believes that his relationship with Christine has not taken a serious turn. They are interrupted when Michael suddenly arrives. Michael is surprised when he realizes that he has arrived in the middle of a tense situation between Nina and Paul. Nina brushes aside Michael's questions, claims that she is suffering from jet lag, grabs her suitcase and heads out toward the Chancellor mansion.
At Adam's estate, Adam finishes up some of his work and calls out for Chelsea, wondering if she is interested in some food. Adam becomes concerned when he realizes that Chelsea is nowhere in the house. In the meantime, Chelsea slips into Sharon's cottage while Sharon is asleep. Chelsea spots the bottle of pills which the therapist left for Sharon to help Sharon get a handle on her BI-POLAR DISORDER. As Chelsea holds the pill bottle up, attempting to read the name of the medication which Sharon is taking, Sharon wakes up and spots Chelsea in the cottage. Sharon panics and loudly demands to know what Chelsea is doing in the cottage. When Chelsea reminds Sharon that the cottage is on Chelsea's property, Sharon demands to know if Adam knows that Chelsea has just barged into the cottage without letting Sharon know that Chelsea was on her way out. When Chelsea quizzes Sharon about Sharon's relationship with Adam, Sharon insists that Adam is merely being a good friend, but Chelsea remains skeptical. When Sharon asks what else, besides friendship, could their relationship be - Chelsea merely declares "never mind," and leaves. However, after Chelsea has gone, Sharon begins to rock back and forth, then begins pacing around the room. Sharon keeps declaring - "This isn't working! Nothing is working!" Then Sharon tosses her bottle of pills into a corner, and rushes out of the cottage.
At the Athletic Club, Neil is surprised when Leslie arrives and quizzes Neil about his dinner plans. Neil invites Leslie to join him - but Leslie reports that she has just finished dinner. As Leslie and Neil chat, Neil once again asks Leslie if she has considered his offer to join the Jabot team. Neil is pleasantly surprised when Leslie declares that she is willing to join Neil's team at Jabot.
After Nina leaves Crimson Lights, Michael sits down with Paul and reports that he is prepared to bring Paul up to speed on the latest news about the investigation into Ricky's death. After Paul guesses that Michael has made his decision, Michael slaps down a large envelope and declares that he is delivering Paul's "Get out of Jail Free" card. Michael reports that the District Attorney's office will NOT be pressing any charges against Paul. While Paul and Michael discuss Michael's decision about Paul's case, Paul reminds Michael how important it is for Michael to stay in touch with his son.
In the meantime, Nina arrives at the Chancellor mansion. Katherine is thrilled when she realizes that Nina has returned, and gives her an enthusiastic welcome. However, Nina soon brings Katherine up to speed on the news that Nina believes that Paul has renewed his romance with Christine while Nina has been out of town. Katherine tries to convince Nina that Paul is in the midst of some serious emotional turmoil at the moment - and can not really know how he really feels right now. But Nina remains convinced that Paul knows exactly who he wants to be with - and that is Christine. Nina declares that she is interested in returning to California right away, but Katherine tries to convince Nina not to make any major decisions while Nina is still distraught about Paul's relationship with Christine. Later, while Katherine is attempting to interest Nina in helping Katherine plan her Thanksgiving festivities, Christine arrives. Katherine leaves Chris and Nina alone. When they are alone, Chris attempts to convince Nina that the kiss which Chris shared with Paul was just an innocent gesture. After Nina asks about Christine's relationship with Danny, Nina declares that, for most of her life, she has always been someone's second choice - and she is no longer willing to play second fiddle - for anyone. After Nina declares that, as far as Nina is concerned, her relationship with Paul is finished - Nina rushes out of the room, leaving Christine alone.
At The Athletic Club, after Leslie finishes her conversation with Neil, Leslie leaves. Shortly afterward, Devon arrives for his meeting with Neil. Neil becomes concerned when Devon reports that Neil's decision to leave his job at Chancellor Industries could end up adversely affecting Katherine - because Kay appears to be determined to take over the position of CEO at Chancellor. Neil tries to reassure Devon that Katherine has a history of making solid decisions, and encourages Devon to rest assured that Katherine will not be taking any unnecessary risks. Later, Devon admits to Neil that Devon's music business is suffering through a downturn. Neil assures Devon that IF Devon wants to move his career in a new direction, there will always be a position for Devon at Jabot. Neil explains that Cane and Lily are already working with Neil at Jabot. Neil and Devon make plans to get the family together during Thanksgiving.
At Adam's estate, Adam is surprised when he returns downstairs, just as Chelsea returns to the main house. When Adam asks Chelsea where she has been, Chelsea declares that she took a walk around the lake. Adam observes that Chelsea is wearing only a light sweater and it would have been pretty cold for a walk around the lake. When Chelsea declares that she is ready for bed, Adam asks point blank if Chelsea had gone out to Sharon's cottage. Chelsea finally admits that she DID go out to the cottage but, because Sharon was asleep, Chelsea left without speaking to Sharon. Adam remains skeptical and asks how Chelsea would know that Sharon was asleep if Chelsea did NOT go inside the cottage. Chelsea then claims that she went to the door, but decided that Sharon most likely would NOT answer her knock if Chelsea DID knock - so Chelsea decided to leave. When Adam asks Chelsea what she WOULD have said to Sharon if Sharon HAD been awake - Chelsea admits that she WOULD have told Sharon that it is time for Sharon to leave. Chelsea presents her case to Adam, declaring that she believes that Chelsea and Adam have done everything which they CAN do for Sharon - and that it is surely time for Sharon to find somewhere else to live. As Adam continues to question Chelsea's motivations, Chelsea admits that she IS jealous about the way in which Adam has been bending over backward in order to help Sharon but, when Chelsea was trying to deal with the recent loss of her baby, Adam was distant and seemed to be completely unconcerned about the emotional turmoil which Chelsea was feeling after the baby's loss. Adam asks Chelsea what it would take to reassure Chelsea that Adam's first commitment is to Chelsea, Chelsea admits that Sharon needs to go back to her life - because Adam and Chelsea have done everything which they can do for Sharon - and that Sharon needs to hear that from Adam. Chelsea insists that she is willing to help Sharon find a new place. When Adam admits that he believes that Sharon is nowhere near ready to be finding somewhere else to live, Chelsea explains to Adam that it is obvious that Sharon is in love with him. When Adam claims that Sharon is only feeling grateful, and observes that Chelsea is beginning to sound paranoid, Chelsea pulls out one of Sharon's letters and reads a passage from the letter - "Adam has been my rock, my protector. Without him, I would be lost!" Chelsea reminds Adam that she asked him before if he was still in love with Sharon, and Adam again claims that he is NOT still in love with Sharon. Chelsea observes that Adam is conning himself because he is still in love with Sharon - whether Adam wants to face it or not. Adam continues to insist that Chelsea is leaping to all of the wrong conclusions. Adam insists that he truly DOES love Chelsea and that he is NOT leading her on. Chelsea observes that if Adam is NOT leading Chelsea on - then Adam is leading Sharon on - and IF that is what Adam is doing, then, when Sharon realizes the truth, Adam's decisions will set Sharon so far back that it will eventually bury Sharon. Adam argues that tomorrow is Thanksgiving, but Chelsea insists that surely the best thing for Sharon will be for Sharon to spend Thanksgiving with her family. Adam finally agrees, but reminds Chelsea that Chelsea DID say that she would help Sharon get settled somewhere else. Chelsea agrees that she is willing to give Sharon whatever help she needs - just so long as Sharon lives somewhere else. Adam and Chelsea kiss and make up.
At Crimson Lights, after Paul thanks Michael for Michael's help in wrapping up his case, Michael rushes away. Later, Michael makes an attempt to contact Fen, but only reaches Fen's voice mail. Michael leaves a message, reminding Fen that his family loves him.
At the same time, Paul begins to go through his briefcase and looks through the cards and letters which Ricky had sent to him over the years. Paul begins to toss the cards and letters into the trash can. While Paul is in the midst of cleaning out his briefcase, Christine returns. Chris is alarmed when she realizes that Paul is dumping his last remaining reminders of Ricky, but Paul explains that Michael has decided NOT to continue to pursue his investigation into Ricky's death - and Paul believes that it is now time to put the past behind him.
Elsewhere at Crimson Lights, when Kevin arrives, Michael quizzes Kevin about Kevin's experience with Tag and Grab. Kevin admits that he believes that Kevin and Chloe are going to have to give up on their plans for establishing their own Internet company. Michael gives Kevin a pep talk encouraging Kevin to focus on coming up with an idea for doing something which will make Kevin happy - rather than focusing so much on ideas which Kevin believes will make a lot of money. Michael is disappointed when Kevin declares that maybe he should begin thinking about taking the easy way out. After Kevin storms away, Michael calls Chloe, and reports that he believes that they have a problem.
Elsewhere at Crimson Lights, Paul receives a call from HEATHER and reports to Christine that Heather will be spending THANKSGIVING in CHICAGO with DANIEL and LUCY. Chris reports about her recent confrontation with Nina and explains that Nina is very hurt about what Nina believes is the romantic relationship developing between Paul and Christine. Paul admits that he is interested in pursuing his relationship with Chris - and seeing where it will go.
Following his conversation with Chelsea, Adam heads out to Sharon's cottage. When Sharon does not answer Adam's knock, Adam enters the cottage. Adam is surprised when he discovers that all of Sharon's things are gone. The only thing which Adam discovers are the pills which Sharon's therapist gave to her. Later, when Adam returns to the main house, he discovers that Chelsea is making plans for a romantic evening with Adam. Adam declares that he KNOWS that Chelsea didn't just check in on Sharon, but that Chelsea must have also had a confrontation with Sharon. Holding up Sharon's bottle of pills, Adam declares that Sharon has apparently moved out of the cottage - because all of Sharon's belongings are gone. The only thing which Sharon left behind are the pills which the therapist gave to her - the one thing which Sharon needs the most. Adam declares that if anything happens to Sharon, it will be Chelsea's responsibility.

YOUNG AND RESTLESS NEWS from the week of SEPTEMBER 5, 2002
During 2002, Victor decided he needed to go on a soul-searching journey before formally asking Nikki to be his wife once more. As a result, Victor made contact with his former wives and lovers including Julia, Ramona, Ashley and Hope. Unbeknownst to Victor, however, his ex-wife, Lenna, joined forces with Max Hollister, who was seeking revenge against Victor. Leanna arranged for Victor's meetings to be taped, and the footage was aired on her television show. Max, who was wooing Nikki, was with her at the Lodge when the show was broadcast. Nikki decided there was no chance of a reunion with Victor. Later, when Victor returned to Genoa City, Nikki confronted him. Victor told Nikki he visited his exes looking for insight to make his next marriage last. Then Victor proposed to Nikki, who promised him an answer in two weeks (she needed time to herself in order to think things through). Fourteen days later, Nikki told Victor she would marry him. Meanwhile, Max, along with his estranged wife, Lorie Brooks (who had once been engaged to Victor), tried to break up Victor and Nikki, but nothing came of it. Lorie apologized to Victor, and wished him well before leaving town. Victor and Nikki had a lovely wedding ceremony and reception. (Leanna crashed the nuptials, but Nick and Victoria tossed her out, undetected.) On their wedding night, Victor gave Nikki a beautiful photo album documenting their many years together.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2012 -- SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S EVENTS
Y&R -- THURSDAY, November 22 is THANKSGIVING - so be prepared for schedule adjustments to accommodate the Holiday. -- After Paul views the video showing Ricky drowning his girlfriend, Christine reaches out to reassure Paul - and the duo end up sharing a kiss. At that moment, Nina arrives in Genoa City, following her most recent business trip, and is stunned when she spots Paul's passionate encounter with Christine. After Nina catches Paul kissing Christine, Nina heads to the Chancellor mansion. After Nina brings Kay up to speed on Paul's sudden involvement with Chris, Katherine comforts an emotional Nina. Nina declares that her relationship with Paul is over, and begins making plans to return to California. Katherine attempts to convince Nina NOT to make any sudden decisions while Nina is still emotionally distraught. Christine arrives at the Chancellor mansion, and tries to convince Nina that the kiss which Nina witnessed was just an innocent embrace, but Nina remains skeptical. In the meantime, Michael meets with Paul and delivers the good news that the District Attorney will NOT be pressing any charges against Paul. After Michael declares that he is giving Paul his "Get Out of Jail Free" card, Paul looks through the many hand-made cards which Ricky sent to Paul over the years, each one declaring that Paul was the very best Dad in the whole world. Then Paul begins tossing Ricky's cards and letters into the trash basket. When Christine returns and discovers that Paul is discarding all of Ricky's old letters and cards, Paul admits to Christine that he would like to give his relationship with Chris one more opportunity to grow - and Christine agrees. Afterward, Paul receives a telephone call from HEATHER and reports that Heather will be spending THANKSGIVING in CHICAGO with DANIEL and LUCY. After a heart-to-heart chat with Paul, Michael attempts to mend fences with his son. Later, after Michael learns that Kevin has decided that they will need to give up their Tag and Grab business, Michael tries to give Kevin a pep talk about Kevin's bright future, but Kevin remains skeptical about Michael's assurances. Michael contacts Chloe and begins making plans to help lift Kevin's spirits. Neil is pleased when Leslie accepts his job offer, and makes plans to work for Neil at Jabot. Later, Devon lets Neil know that her loved ones are concerned about Katherine's plans to return to work at Chancellor Industries as CEO. After a heart-to-heart chat about Katherine's health, Devon admits that Neil was right about music being a tough business and confesses that his music business is experiencing a serious downturn in business. When Neil invites Devon to join Neil, Lily and Cane at Jabot, Devon promises to give Neil's suggestion some serious consideration. Following an encounter with Chelsea at the cottage, Sharon panics, packs up and moves out - but leaves behind the medication which her therapist believes will help Sharon deal with a Bi-Polar Disorder. Meanwhile, in the main house, Chelsea admits to Adam that she believes that it is time for Sharon to find somewhere else to live. Chelsea agrees to help Sharon find a new place, but argues that Adam and Chelsea have done everything which they can do for her while Sharon still resides on Adam's property. Adam reluctantly agrees to go along with Chelsea's plan. However, when Adam stops off at the cottage to discuss a possible move with Sharon, Adam is alarmed when he discovers that Sharon has moved all of her belongings out of the cottage - but left her medication behind. Chelsea is stunned when Adam returns to the main house and reports that Sharon has moved out - but left her medication behind. Adam declares that if anything has happened to Sharon while Sharon has been trying to fend for herself, it will be Chelsea's responsibility. Noah learns startling news about Sharon. An unexpected and exceedingly shocking turn of events leaves Victoria in a very dangerous situation. Tensions rise as Jill clashes with Katherine. At first, Jill is pleased when Katherine agrees to share CEO duties at Chancellor with Jill. However, Jill hits the roof when she reads the contract which Katherine has prepared. Jill confronts Kay and complains that Kay's contract leaves Jill with virtually no ability to take charge of anything. While Jill and Katherine are arguing, Kay begins to gasp and complains of experiencing chest pains. Jill swings into action and assures Katherine of her genuine concern. However, before Jill can finish dialing 9-1-1, Katherine declares that she was not really experiencing chest pains - but was, instead, testing Jill. Jill hits the roof again but, soon, Jill and Kay are laughing together about Katherine's little joke. Phyllis becomes determined to quiz an obviously fragile Sharon. -- ALL CBS Daytime programming will be preempted on Thursday, November 22 and Friday, November 23, to accommodate special Holiday programming, including NFL Football.

Y&R -- Victor and Nikki make plans to tie the knot - again - in their new home. However, Victor's determination to regain control of Newman Enterprises will once again create chaos in the Newman Family relationships. Danger from Billy's past puts Victoria in danger.

YOUNG AND RESTLESS
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2012 -- SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S EVENTS
Y&R -- REDARIC WILLIAMS will debut as TYLER DOUGLAS, beginning WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2012. Original hints about Tyler Douglas were that he would be revealed to be the son of SARGE'S deceased brother, will have an MBA degree and will go to work for JABOT, where he will work closely with LILY. WILLIAMS worked previously as a model. LAMON ARCHEY will also debut in the role of MASON during the same general time period. ARCHEY is also a model.
COULD BE EVEN WORSE NEWS AHEAD?
Y&R -- STEVE BURTON has decided to leave General Hospital. 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? TV Guide is also reporting that BURTON'S exit from General Hospital is now a "done deal" - and that BURTON permanently exited GENERAL HOSPITAL on OCTOBER 22. Although Burton has stated that he and his family are headed for their new home in Tennessee, JFP has made statements, indicating that she would be happy to ask BURTON to join the Y&R cast. In the meantime, of course, keep in mind that IF ABC goes ahead with their original plan to axe General Hospital by April of 2013 - a whole lot of "Friends of Jill" could suddenly become interested in migrating from Port Charles to Genoa City.
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 are scheduled to drag out LONG past the end of summer. While the good news is that there is some possibility that the new writers will wrap up the story about Paul's involvement in Ricky's death, sooner rather than later, the bad news is that the new writers may also be eager to hustle Paul and the rest of his family out of town -- sooner, rather than later. Latest reports are that, when Paul's case wraps up, Paul will renew his romantic connection with CHRISTINE. Chris will make a trip to confer with Danny, and let Danny know that she has decided to reunite with Paul. In the meantime, NINA will become aware of Paul's plans, and end up crying on KATHERINE'S shoulder!
HAS GOOD NEWS TURNED INTO BAD NEWS?
Y&R -- 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. However, since hints are now being dropped that Sharon and Adam will once again become a couple, it does not look like Sharon's erratic behavior will be ending any time soon. Word is that ERIC BRAEDEN has signed a new contract and will continue in the role of VICTOR.
BABY ON BOARD?
Y&R -- Most likely, this idea has been scrapped by the new writers. However, there is always a possibility that the new writers will have second thoughts, and decide to follow through on some aspects of a story about a returning Genoa City troublemaker. 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, NOVEMBER 30, 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 for Y&R viewers 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 Debbi Morgan, among others. 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 begin seeing more of Lily and Cane and Phyllis. -- JOSHUA MORROW has stated that his opinion is that PHYLLIS and NICK will eventually reconcile. -- For the record, Young and Restless currently has 4.5 million viewers. Jill Farren Phelps's current "masterpiece" - Hollywood Heights - has enjoyed very disappointing ratings and currently attracts LESS than one million viewers - on a regular basis. The most logical reason for a show with 4.5 million viewers to be attempting to "remake" itself in the image of a show which has LESS than one million viewers is that, somewhere, somehow, head honchos are EAGER to drive away the 3.5 million viewers who might object if Young and Restless ended up being cancelled any time soon.
YOUNG AND RESTLESS
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 28, 2012 -- SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S EVENTS
Y&R -- Reportedly, a number of soap magazines are now reporting that MICHAEL GRAZIADEI will exit the role of DANIEL some time during the month of DECEMBER. Up until that time, beginning the first of November, the character of Daniel will make only sporadic appearances in Genoa City.
NEWMAN RANCH TO BE REBUILT?
Y&R -- Latest report is that Y&R's new writers have decided that the Newman Ranch will be rebuilt after all. Initial reports were that Nikki and Victor would just move into a Penthouse apartment, and ignore the task of rebuilding the Ranch.
JILL'S RETURN -- There are now reports that there are STILL plans for JESS WALTON to return to Genoa City as JILL, some time around NOVEMBER 2. However, there has not yet been any word as to whether or not TRISTAN ROGERS will also be returning as COLIN when JILL returns to Genoa City - as had been originally planned. Chances are - probably not. News from GENERAL HOSPITAL is that ROGERS will be putting in appearances on GH as ROBERT SCORPIO during NOVEMBER SWEEPS. JESS WALTON is scheduled to be involved in a story on Y&R which will include a four-to-six week return for WALTON.
ANOTHER FRIEND OF JILL SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE IN GENOA CITY -- Latest word is that IGNACIO SERRICCHIO will soon be arriving in town and will debut as a character named ALEX. Alex will be a streetwise undercover police officer who arrives in Genoa City after covering himself with accolades while working in New York City. Reportedly, Alex will arrive in Genoa City, harboring a "big secret." Other reports indicate that Alex will be arriving in town, determined to quiz someone about a past relationship - and hot on the trail of some missing money. No doubt, the stash of money which NOAH'S former girlfriend, ADRIANA, just sent to Noah in the mail. SERRICCHIO actually MIGHT be able to act. At least, he was nominated for an Emmy award for his performance as DIEGO ALCAZAR, the long-lost son of crime lord LORENZO ALCAZAR - on General Hospital, of course. Which was helmed by JILL FARREN PHELPS during the time that SERRICCHIO appeared as Diego Alcazar. SERRICCHIO is scheduled to begin work in late October and will be seen on screen by early DECEMBER.
JEFF BRANSON ON THE WAY OUT? -- Reportedly, Jeff Branson told an audience at a Soap Fest event that he has been let go - so be prepared for RONAN to head out of town again soon. Of course, this was to be expected. There is room for only one police officer in Genoa City at a time - and FRIEND OF JILL IGNACIO SERICCHIO is scheduled to arrive in town soon - and will most likely be taking over the HEAD COP position.
TWO NEW MODELS SCHEDULED TO ARRIVE IN GENOA CITY -- Word is that TIIC have hired two new models. REDARIC WILLIAMS will be debuting in the role of TYLER DOUGLAS. Early reports were that Tyler Douglas would debut as the son of Sarge's deceased brother. Reportedly, WILLIAMS'S audition included scenes between TYLER and LILY, indicating that, by the time that TYLER arrives in town, Lily will be working at Jabot and that the Douglas character will be assigned to work with Lily. The other model coming to town is LAMON ARCHEY. ARCHEY'S character's name is currently being described as "Mason." The two new models will begin hanging out at The Athletic Club and Crimson Lights some time in November. No word yet as to whether or not either of these two new additions have ever exhibited any acting skills.
MORE NEWBIES COMING TO TOWN - Y&R has a casting call out for an 18-20 year old Hispanic female, who will be named Adriana. Adriana will arrive in town as a singer, who is harboring a "big" secret. On MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12, it will be revealed that NOAH'S estranged girlfriend's name is ADRIANA! MOST LIKELY - the bag of money which New-NOAH recently received came from ADRIANA. And REPLACEMENT COP ALEX will soon arrive in town, searching for the money which ADRIANA stashed with NEW NOAH. This is similar to the casting call which went out for a spunky, single mother during the time period when it appeared that CHRISTEL KHALIL was not going to be able to reach an amicable agreement during contract negotiations.
ABOUT THE AUTUMN SOLARIS Y&R VIDEO CLIPS BOARD:
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 also 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. Unfortunately for all of us, the AtkinsonM2 and AtkinsonM5 boards have been closed. HOWEVER, you can still usually find Canadian viewers who are posting film clips from the Canadian broadcast by typing in the date which interests you, followed by You Tube. For example, if you Google 11-19-12 You Tube - the search will usually bring up a number of film clips which have been posted for that day - and many of those film clips will be for Canadian broadcasts of The Young and The Restless.
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.
