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 week is that all charges against Paul, following Paul's involvement in Ricky's death, have been dropped. The bad news, of course, is that, probably, 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, those mysteries will join Genoa City's growing list of unsolved mysteries. Since Paul and Christine are already discussing the fact that BOTH of them are considering making a career change soon - the REST of Paul's news will most likely 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 is apparently already on her 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. REDERIC WILLIAMS is scheduled to debut in the contract role of TYLER DOUGLAS, beginning around DECEMBER 12. Although early reports were that TYLER would be the son of SARGE'S deceased brother, more recent reports indicate that TYLER will turn out to be LESLIE'S younger brother. Some are speculating that this change could mean that DARNELL WILLIAMS will soon be joining many of his former Y&R cast-mates in the Unemployment Line! Following is a brief synopsis of Monday's action.

YOUNG AND RESTLESS
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2012
At his desk at Abbott mansion, Jack contemplates the long trip it will take to pick up some papers which he left on the couch. While Jack makes his way back to the couch, he hears someone at the door, and is surprised when Kyle arrives to wish him a Happy Thanksgiving. Later, Kyle brings Jack up to speed on events in New York with Traci, Ashley and Abby while they share Thanksgiving leftovers. After Jack admits that he misses everyone, Kyle reminds Jack that Jack waited until after he was finished with his recent surgery before Jack let his family know about the surgery. After Kyle begins lecturing Jack about Jack's recent take-over of Newman, Jack assures Kyle that he has solid plans for the future of Newman - in the same way that Jack has always had solid plans for the future of Jabot.
At Billy's place, Nikki and Victor continue to worry as they wait for Nick and Billy to bring Victoria home. Shortly afterward, Nick, Billy and Victoria arrive. Victor rushes to praise Nick for bringing Victoria home - but ignores Billy. Shortly afterward, Nikki convinces Victoria to go upstairs with her, to get some rest. As soon as Victoria and Nikki head upstairs, Victor approaches Billy and orders Billy to pack up and leave - immediately - and to NEVER make an effort to see Victoria again.
When Chloe and Michael meet at Crimson Lights, Chloe admits to Michael that she is worried about Kevin's obsession with the current problems being experienced by their start-up company. When Kevin arrives, Kevin admits that he is annoyed by the prospect that Chloe and Michael have their heads together, worrying about Kevin. Michael reports that Gloria has been worried because Kevin skipped Thanksgiving with the family, and tries to convince Kevin to join them all for pie. Chloe tries to convince Kevin to accept Michael's offer, but changes her mind and assures Michael that they might be able to stop over at some point during the weekend. After Michael leaves, Kevin scolds Chloe for not being as upset as Kevin has been about the continuing problems which they are facing with their company. Chloe is obviously hurt when Kevin accuses her of not ever being as enthusiastic about their efforts as Kevin has been. After Michael leaves, Chloe and Kevin continue to argue about the future of their company. While they are arguing, Tucker arrives. Kevin becomes excited when Tucker reveals that Adam offered to sell Adam's share of Tag and Grab to Tucker - and Tucker took Adam up on his offer. Kevin and Chloe are stunned when Tucker explains that, according to the fine print in the contract which Kevin and Chloe signed with Adam, in the event that Adam chooses to sell his share in the company, the new buyer has the option to buy Chloe and Kevin out for a nominal fee - and Tucker is interested in exercising that option! Kevin and Chloe argue that they are the heart and soul of Tag and Grab, and that Tucker needs their vitality to keep the company moving forward. Tucker assures them that he has people with their skills at a multi-national level, ready to go to work. Kevin and Chloe are devastated when Tucker indicates the amount which he believes is the proper "nominal" fee which he needs to purchase their interest. When Kevin continues to protest Tucker's decision, Tucker points out that this is just a business decision, that they are young and smart and that they will be able to bounce back. Kevin is obviously devastated when Tucker advises them not to let this get them down - then walks away.
When Paul and Nina meet at the new restaurant in town, Paul attempts to convince Nina that they need to talk about their situation - but Nina declares that there is no need to talk about their relationship - because it is over. When Paul insists that he never wanted to hurt Nina, she agrees that she knows that Paul did not set out to intentionally hurt her - which means that Paul's feelings for Christine must have been very strong. Paul is stunned when Nina declares that she will be returning to L.A. - permanently - and will NOT be returning to Genoa City any time soon. After Nina and Paul share a tender farewell, Chris arrives. Christine makes an attempt to apologize, but Nina tells Chris that the time for apologies has passed. After Nina leaves, Chris meets with Paul and attempts to convince Paul to go after Nina and convince Nina to change her mind. Paul reminds Christine that he meant what he said when he told Chris that his feelings for her were real. Paul reminds Chris that he believes that Nina deserves better than to be with someone who wants to be with someone else. Chris admits that her feelings for Paul have revived also - and that she believes that she is in love with Paul again. Paul and Christine begin discussing their future and Christine admits that she will need to let Danny know about this development. As they chat, Paul admits that he is not sure if wants to continue working as a private investigator. Christine admits that she is tired of courtrooms and cases and everything connected with the legal profession. Christine and Paul agree that they are both ready for a career change.
At Billy's place, Billy reminds Victor that Victor is standing in Billy's living room - and that Victor does NOT have the right to throw his weight around in Billy's home. Nick steps up and reminds Nick that Billy provided important assistance in order to rescue Victoria. After Nick urges Victor NOT to escalate the animosity between Billy and Victor, Nick declares that he needs to go home and check on his family. After Nick leaves, Victor continues to order Billy to pack up and move out as soon as possible. Billy explains that his mistakes are all in the past - and that he regrets that danger from his past became a threat to Victoria - but, since the crisis is over now - it is time for them all to put the past behind them. Victor tells Billy that if Billy does not pack up and leave right away, Victor will make sure that Victoria learns that Billy knew that Victor was alive and well and living in L.A., long before Billy let Victor's family know that Victor was alive. When Billy continues to disagree with Victor, Victor warns Billy that Victor will see to it that Victoria's marriage to Billy ends. Billy advises Victor to spend some time now with Victoria, and agrees to leave the house for a while - but warns Victor that he WILL be back. Victor advises Billy that the ONLY reason Billy will be returning will be to begin packing up his belongings so that he can move out. Before Billy leaves, he points out to Victor that Victor is acting like he believes that Victoria is one of his possessions. And that Victor's decision to treat Victoria like one of his possessions - will eventually backfire on Victor. After Billy leaves, Nikki and Victoria return back downstairs. Victoria immediately asks where Billy has gone. Victor claims that Billy left because he realized that he let Victoria down. Victoria is puzzled, but declares that she just wants to be alone, so she can get some rest. When Nikki and Victor declare that they will wait downstairs while she rests - Victoria explains that she just wants to be alone - and asks them to leave.
When Nick returns home, he learns that Noah, Summer and Faith have all gone out, and that Nick is home alone. Nick immediately calls Avery and suggests that the two of them should get together so that Nick can tell Avery about his recent business trip.
After Tucker leaves Crimson Lights, Chloe tries to convince Kevin that they can start over, but Kevin continues to melt down, and accuses Chloe of not really caring that they just lost everything - which they have worked for months to achieve. Chloe reminds Kevin that it was CHLOE who came up with the idea for Tag and Grab - and protests that her dreams are also crushed. Kevin reminds Chloe that it was Chloe who went to Adam and asked for Adam's help - and that it was Adam who took advantage of them. Kevin argues that Chloe went to Adam because Chloe did not really trust Kevin to be able to come up with the money which they needed to get their company off the ground. When Kevin accuses Chloe of never really having faith in Kevin to come up with the solutions which they needed - Chloe reminds Kevin that he never did come up with the solutions which they needed to solve their problems. Kevin storms out of Crimson Lights, leaving a perplexed Chloe behind.
At Abbott mansion, Jack is surprised when Billy arrives and begins speaking to Jack about Jack's brilliant plan to send Victoria off to Miami on a wild goose chase. Jack is stunned when Billy explains about Victoria being kidnapped by one of Billy's old gambling buddies. Jack objects when Billy declares that it is Jack's fault that Victoria was kidnapped. Jack reminds Billy that, years ago, Jack took care of ALL Billy's gambling debts - and that Jack WOULD have taken care of this gambling debt as well - if Billy had only come to Jack for help. Billy continues to insist that Jack's brilliant plan is responsible for Victoria's experience with the kidnapper - but Jack insists that it was Billy who made the biggest mistake - when Billy decided to try to help Victoria steal Newman Enterprises from Jack. While Billy and Jack are arguing, Kyle hears the commotion - and arrives in the living room, determined to convince Billy and Jack to bury the hatchet. However, Billy warns Kyle to watch his back, because it will most likely be Kyle's turn next to be tossed under the Newman Enterprises bus. Billy declares that it is a known fact that you are not a real Abbot until you have tire marks on your face. Then Billy leaves. After Billy leaves, Jack tries to convince Kyle that everything which Jack does is for his family - but Kyle points out that Jack ALWAYS puts his business BEFORE his family. Kyle asks if it is really so important to Jack to hang on to all of the STUFF which Jack believes that he wants - that Jack is willing to drive away all of those loved ones closest to Jack.
Avery is pleased when Nick arrives at Avery's apartment, and reports that Summer and Faith had Thanksgiving dinner with Avery. Nick thanks Avery for providing a normal Thanksgiving dinner for Summer and Faith. Avery admits that she considered inviting Phyllis, but Summer refused to even consider that possibility. Nick begins filling Avery in on the details about his emergency trip out of town in order to rescue Victoria from kidnappers. Avery assures Nick that she is happy that he returned home, all in one piece. Nick remembers Cassie and observes that, because life is so fragile, you need to make every second count. Nick and Avery begin to kiss and decide that this might be a good thing.
At Billy's place, Victoria turns off all of the lights in the living room, then crouches down beside the couch.
Victor and Nikki end up sharing dinner at the new restaurant in town, and Nikki tries to convince Victor that leaving when Victoria asked them to go was really the only choice which they had. Victor continues to insist that he believes that they need to get Billy out of Victoria's life in order for Victoria to be able to get her life back on an even keel. Nikki argues that Victoria is an adult and that Victor should allow Victoria to make her own decisions. Nikki reminds Victor that most people believe that Nikki's relationship with Victor is twisted and even abusive - and urges Victor to just allow Victoria to make her own decisions.
At Billy's place, Billy returns home and spots Victoria, sleeping on the couch. However, when Billy reaches over to pull the blanket up over Victoria's shoulders, Victoria panics and begins fighting for her life. Billy assures Victoria that she is safe - and Victoria begins to calm down.
Kevin arrives at Adam's place and begins pounding on the door. Kevin calls out to Adam, telling him that Adam needs to look Kevin in the eye if he wants to destroy Kevin.
At the new restaurant in town, as Nikki continues to try to convince Victor to just allow Victoria to make up her own mind about her personal relationships, Victor reveals the news that Billy knew that Victor was alive and well in L.A. - and that Billy kept Victor's family from learning the truth. At the same time, at Billy's place, Billy assures Victoria that he knows that her recent ordeal was all Billy's fault. Billy asks Victoria to forgive him for his recent mistakes.

YOUNG AND RESTLESS
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2012 -- SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S EVENTS
Y&R -- Chelsea heads for a heated confrontation with Sharon about Sharon's relationship with Adam. After Nick and Billy rescue Victoria and they all return to Genoa City, Victor once again becomes determined to force Billy out of Victoria's life. Billy remains unimpressed when Victor once again threatens to tell Victoria that Billy knew that Victor was alive and well and living in L.A. while Victor's family was still searching for him. Later, Nikki attempts to convince Victor to stand back and allow Victoria to make her own decisions about her relationships. At that point, Victor reveals to Nikki that Billy knew that Victor was living in California long before Billy told Victor's family that Billy had located Victor. Nick's relationship with Avery takes a serious turn. Phyllis catches Adam spying on Jack. Jack continues to lean on painkillers as he deals with the aftereffects of his recent back surgery. Jack's behavior worries Phyllis. Cane begins to feel insecure about his job at Jabot. Remember, not so long ago, Cane seriously believed that Jack intended to appoint Cane as the CEO of Jabot while Jack concentrated on getting Newman up and working. Cane becomes annoyed when Devon turns up for work at Jabot - and Neil asks Cane to show Devon around. Devon begins to believe that Cane believes that Devon's presence at Jabot means that Cane will be eased out of his management responsibilities. Devon tries to reassure Cane that Devon is NOT attempting to take over Cane's job, but Cane remains skeptical. Cane is annoyed when he ends up missing some important meetings while he is giving Devon a grand tour of Jabot's headquarters offices. Although Neil also reassures Cane that there is no move afoot to ease Cane out of his job, Cane becomes even more concerned when Cane tries to bring Neil up to speed on some creative ideas which Cane has been developing - and Neil suggests that Cane should run his ideas past Devon first. Later, when Cane shares his concerns with Lily, worrying about missing some important meetings because Neil asked Cane to show Devon around the Jabot offices - Lily tries to reassure Cane that Neil would never be doing something so underhanded, in an attempt to hustle Cane out of his position at Jabot. However, secretly, Cane wonders if Neil is still miffed about the various periods during the past, when Cane's short-sighted decisions have had a negative impact on Lily. Later, Cane and Lily choose pleasure over business. Chloe and Kevin are devastated when they learn that Adam has offered his share of Tag and Grab to Tucker - and Tucker has taken Adam up on his offer. Chloe and Kevin are crushed when they learn that the contract which they signed with Adam allows whomever purchases Adam's share to also buy out Kevin and Chloe's share at a NOMINAL price. After he learns how little they will be receiving from Tucker's decision to take over Tag and Grab, Kevin has a meltdown and heads for a heated confrontation with Adam. Nina says farewell to Paul. - and announces her plan to return to California.

WILLIAMS worked previously as a model. HOWEVER, more recent reports indicate that TYLER will be related to LESLIE - possibly, her younger brother. LAMON ARCHEY will also debut in the role of MASON during the same general time period. ARCHEY is also a model.
YOUNG AND RESTLESS
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2012 -- SUMMARY OF THE WEEK'S EVENTS
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. While Jack continues to deal with a precarious health situation, he worries that Victor - or Adam - could be in a position to take advantage while Jack is at his most vulnerable. Jack begins to lean on painkillers as he continues to struggle with his health. Adam continues to attempt to protect Sharon from the Newman family. At the same time, Chelsea remains suspicious about Adam's artful dodging. As Nick and Phyllis continue their headlong rush toward divorce court, Avery is pleased when Nick continues to turn to Avery for support. In the meantime, Ronan continues to hope that he will be able to encourage Phyllis to lean on Ronan for support. However, Phyllis remains overwhelmed by her attempts to regain Summer's trust and confidence. While Nick and Avery's relationship will continue to blossom, Phyllis and Ronan will drift apart. Phyllis will begin to become more involved with Jack. Jack will begin to struggle with the problems created by his dependence on medication to ease the pain associated with his recovery from recent back surgery.

As a result of Fen's involvement in Summer's cyber-bullying campaign, Lauren's history as a teen bully will come back to haunt her. When Fen begins to suspect that SUMMER is developing a soft spot for JAMIE - FEN escalates the bullying campaign against Jamie.
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 - before heading back to California - for good.
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. (This has obviously been changed to a bi-polar disorder - probably because JFP believes that she has reasonable experience with writing about bi-polar disorders after dealing with that issue for almost a decade with Sonny Corinthos on General Hospital. However, most people we know who actually deal with bi-polar disorders in their own lives have declared that JFP did the same hatchet job with GH's bi-polar disorder stories as she did when GH tried to convince the public that all it took for Emily Quartermaine's breast cancer to be cured was for Emily to receive a magic kiss from Prince Nikolas Cassadine!) Some are hoping that this will, in some way, give an explanation for Sharon's erratic behavior over the past several 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. However, more recent reports indicate that TYLER will be the younger brother of ATTORNEY LESLIE! 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 was 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 AUTUMN'S Y&R VIDEO CLIPS BOARD:
The Autumn boards are closed and will most likely not be posting any new videos. Likewise, the Atkinson boards have also closed. However, two friends of Atkinson have left word that they will post news about Atkinson as soon as they learn anything new. You will be able to find OlympicsDOOL and/or AbbyDove57 by Googling them at You Tube. If you value this resource, please do NOT post any links on message boards!
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.
