The Young and the Restless spoilers reveal as 2017 comes to an end, we would like to reflect on the past year and some of the storylines that unfolded. Here are some of the best and the worst ones that happened this year. Which one do you think was the best or the worst of 2017?
Juliet Helton (Laur Allen) seduced a drunk and very married Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard), while he was in Hong Kong on a business trip. The consequences of their one night stand were massive. Cane’s marriage is pretty much over; Juliet died during child birth and now Cane is left to raise baby, Sam on his own. What was the point of bringing a virtual stranger to Genoa City to destroy a beloved couple like Lily (Christel Khalil) and Cane Ashby?
Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) has always been competitive when it comes to her family’s business and her siblings. Her sister, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) had enough of Victoria and her self-righteous attitude and throws a drink at her, causing her to fall and hit her head. Victoria begins to act out of character, including having a fling with Benjamin Hochman (Ben Hermes). Victoria starts to have headaches, even passing out; eventually getting into a car accident. Suddenly, it all disappears and she is ruling the Newman Enterprise empire; how did that happen?
The powers that be brought back Thad Luckinbull as JT Hellstrom. It was nice to see the familiar face return, and even more exciting that he was investigating the Newman family. JT has never been intimidated by his former father-in-law, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and he continues to prove that this time around. Y&R spoilers reveal that JT is broken, his marriage is over and he’s lost his job. Victoria is currently single, comforting and familiar but their son, Reed (Tristan Lake Leabu) is in desperate need of a father and guidance. JT’s return was one of the best things to happen this year, no?
BEST & WORST
Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) is probably one of the love-to-hate characters ever! In 2017, she was finally caught; she admitted to her best friend, Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan) that she killed her beloved Adam Newman (Justin Hartley). Everyone fully expected Chloe to face the wrath of the infallible Victor Newman; but instead, she escaped Genoa City and is now thoroughly enjoying her life with Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) and her own little girl, Bella. How was justice served? Every fan of the show feels robbed over the revelation and disappointed that Chloe never faced the music!
Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton) was a someone, everyone had grown to love; he was the son of two very prominent people – Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Paul Williams (Doug Davidson). His character had great promise, but when he was sent off suddenly into witness protection; it was probably the worst send off in Y&R history!
Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams) is a force to be reckoned with. When her diagnosis of Alzheimer’s was revealed and we watch as she is diminishing quickly; it is a sad reality. The story is deep and emotional, but it pulls you in all directions. Y&R fans are seeing a side of the Abbotts we haven’t see in years; will they be stronger as they struggle through this devastating disease?
The sex trafficking ring involved so many people, but not one of them was a key player that fans were invested in. Zack Sinnett (Ryan Ashton) used Abby Newman’s naivety and eagerness to please her father, to cover up his sex trafficking ring as dating app company. This brought in Alice Johnson (Tamara Clatterbuck), who no one has seen since Cassie’s (Camryn Grimes) adoption. No one could invest in this story, as there was no one to desperately worry about.
Nikki Newman suffers from MS. We have seen her flare ups and the pain she endures. It is great that TPTB like to bring awareness to various diseases and ailments, but it was very misguided that they would have a benefit concert for her, and in her name and then watch as she suffered, forcing herself to perform, when she knew she couldn’t do it. How about when Nick sabotaged the sound system? What will happen to the Newman family in the year to come?
