STEPHEN NICHOLS ONLINE @ stephennichols.org is a website dedicated to the work of American actor Stephen Nichols. I am in no way affiliated with his person, his management, nor his family. All content, except otherwise noted, is copyrighted to their original owners and no infringement is intended and no rights implied. Content contained within are subject to fair use and used here either in whole or in part as a commentary on the work and career of Stephen Nichols.

Fair warning, what I’m about to say will likely tick off some or reaffirm what I and they already know about this convoluted and ridiculous tripe passing for story on Y&R. The story that Stephen came to play has taken a sharp 90° turn in the last two weeks. I’ll attempt to list my main grievances.

  1. Tucker suddenly has a secret son: When did this happen? Everything that’s been written about him onscreen has been scarce, but the one thing I never got from the character is that he ever had any children. The lifestyle of the man wouldn’t have lent itself to that possibility, no matter how much it was a one night stand or any other thing that might have brought one about. This to me is a contrivance and not needed to keep Tucker interesting.
  2. Tucker putting Katherine in charge in the event of his incapacitation: Problem with this one, there’s a conflict of interest considering she is close friends with Victor Newman whose company Tucker McCall Unlimited is trying to acquire.
  3. Katherine not allowing Ashley access to Tucker: Why is this an issue? Doesn’t matter if Ashley was arrested on suspicion of murder or not, she is still Tucker’s fiancée and Katherine has no right to keep her away from Tucker.
  4. Katherine firing Ashley: I know this hasn’t happened yet in terms of the US viewing, however, I’m going to spoil it here. Katherine fires Ashley from Jabot. What is what with that? Simple, given that Ashley has never shown anything that could even be construed as being a ‘danger’ to Tucker, Kay’s feelings are unwarranted.
  5. Tucker’s hospital room has become Grand Central Station: It seems that anyone and their brother can enter and leave Tucker’s room at will. Colin, Jill, Katherine, Abby, Ashley, Neil, Sophia, Malcolm, Victor and Jack. Whatever happened to only two visitors per patient? Real world expectations to be followed by a soap opera I know…stupid me.
  6. Katherine has no legal right to a say in Tucker’s care or issues: Why is this important? For the simple fact that instead of bringing on an aforementioned secret child, how about bringing on Tucker’s adoptive parents? The way that soaps tread adoption is just sickening. Oh wait, unless you’re Lucy “Blackmarket” Abbott, you’re considered a different being. I have no idea why soaps have chosen to do this. They laude biology over adoption as if it’s a dirty word. As I said, why not have brought on Tucker’s adoptive…no, parents and have them clash with what Kay wants and for a change, Kay has to stand back and watch as she’s kept from the ‘bastard’ she gave up. Heck I’d even take a brother or sister, just not give Katherine control over Tucker McCall Unlimited.
  7. Tucker’s lawyer opening Tucker’s will: Tucker’s lawyer opened Tucker’s will! What’s wrong with that picture? Legally no will can be opened until the death of the person who wrote it and until it is probated, which in normal speak means published, only then can the conditions be executed for the person who drew it up. Tucker should fire his lawyer post haste upon waking up since he did something illegal.
  8. Tucker’s DNR (do not resuccitate) order: Why is this important? Because, Katherine as supposedly his next of kin went to court to get Tucker’s respirator reattached in clear disregard for Tucker’s wishes. Customary the DNR order also covers feeding tubes as they are almost always linked together in the person’s wishes to not have any exigent matters taken to extend life in the case of permanent incapacitation.

    Lastly….

  9. Don’t hire Stephen Nichols and keep him backburnered for so long then used as a prop to bolster other storylines, and do not keep him sidelined lying in a bed unable to do what he does best.

A lot of nitpicking I know, but valid. Stephen deserves more than he’s gotten. With the addition of Genie Francis as Cane’s long-lost mom, I’m hoping there is no plans to derail Tucker and Ashley, one of this show’s major bright spots. Considering though that that for the most part he’s been kept as a propper instead of propelling his own stories…. Well, you do the math.

    Actually I am glad to see Stephen get some kind of backstory and think there is potential here. Yes would also love to find out about his adoptive parent but I don’t think the turn in storyline is horrible IF they do it right. They better wake him up soon though and let us have our TASH wedding.

      Debra:

      I would be happy with this backstory if it involved his adoptive parents or his biological father. The only thing I see coming in this ‘son’ story is that Stephen will be used as a prop for the son and not in his own right as a character. Maria Arena Bell can’t be relied upon to do anything well. She botched Tucker’s story by not having him go for the jugular in Victor and Jack right from the jump. Tucker is only there to prop other storylines such as Abby, Cane, and others. He’s never really been given his own direction…his own story. I would love to have seen his biological father, Judge Arthur Hendricks (David Hedison) return to be on Tucker’s side and more or less put Katherine in her place. That is the father and son story I’d have preferred to see.

      I think what’s pissing me off the most is the incredulity of having us believe that Tucker would actually put Katherine in charge considering their relationship. And again, stupid, sloppy writing. I’m not expecting Tucker to miraculously wake up and proclaim is undying love for Ashley. Considering that she actually believed Abby, even while Tucker was fighting for his life, she accused him of being unfaithful to her. I think a TASH reunion is a little far off for now…if ever. Considering too they’re bringing on Genie Francis as Genevieve, I’m expecting a little flirtation there hoping to recapture that Stefan/Lasha thing from GH.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    I think your issues are exceptionally valid, Dianne and I so agree with your summation. I am only watching Y&R for Stephen as Tucker…though I do like many other actors on the show, it just isn’t enough to keep watching daily. Stephen as Tucker (especially with Ashley, whom I feel is a perfect mate for Tucker and they are stunning together as a couple) lends a refreshing 3rd party air to the old internecine war between Victor and Jack…. he is very different than either men and I love his ‘Renegade’ (all pun intended, lol) spirit. Anyhow, I still check back in to this site for all your updates and I appreciate all the great work you do here. 🙂
