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.

Updates are as follows:

Tucker as Abby’s (Marcy Rylan) roadkill? Not in this lifetime. Can I hate that character any more than I already do? I don’t think so, but I have a feeling if Ashley (Eileen Davidson) keeps covering up for Abby, I might add Ashley to that hate list. And Katherine’s (Jeanne Cooper) sudden epiphany? Just the other day she was calling him a bastard. According to the soap publications, things are going to heat up with the fight for Jabot, Newman and Tucker McCall Unlimited. Sophia (Julia Pace Mitchell) is suppose to take control of Tucker’s empire.

No Stephen on today’s episode, but I do have screencaps and clip from Monday (Canadian)/Tuesday (United States) airing. Looks like Tucker is being read the riot act by Ashley (Eileen Davidson) regarding Abby (Marcy Rylan) who, but th looks of it, is back to stripping in public….AGAIN! Nothing new there. Honestly, that storyline is getting more and more ridiculous. With the money Abby won in the suit against Victor (Eric Braeden) looks like this is the future for this once very sincere character with Haley Erin. Oh I miss her more introspective Abby. I hate Marcy Rylan’s with a passion of a thousand sons. I know none of the last bit had anything to do with Stephen, just my itty, bitty, teeny, weeny mini rant. My webspace, my prerogative.

Well, where has Stephen’s story gone? Today he was backdrop for Jack (Peter Bergman) and Abby’s (Marcy Rylan) angst over Victor (Eric Braeden). I hear that GENERAL HOSPITAL veteran Tristan Rogers has tweeted that he’s enjoying working with Jess Walton (Jill Abbott). Isn’t this where Stephen started when he first came on? I’m almost wanting Tucker back with Diane (Maura West). At least he had story there. There should have been some mention of Tucker’s absence at Katherine’s (Jeanne Cooper), but there wasn’t. It was all about Ronan (Jeff Branson). So where…exactly is Stephen supposed to get his well-deserved story with all this other stuff going on? Go figure!

A good day with Stephen. I was really impressed with how they’re handling that little indiscretion that should never have happened. It was totally out of character with Tucker. He’s never been one to be that much out of control. I’m hoping at some point they’ll rectify it by having Tucker tell Ashley (Eileen Davidson) outright instead of leaving it up to the somewhat unbalanced nature Diane (Maura West) has. She’s too unpredictable. I must say today, Abby (Marcy Rylan) didn’t annoy me half as much as she usually does. That’s a shock. The preview for 10/26/2010 is tacked onto the end of the clip, screencaps are separate.

ETA @ 5:35AM: It was brought to my attention that the video I posted yesterday didn’t work. I took a look at it and was shocked it didn’t. There was likely a problem in the conversion process when I clipped it up. The program I used converted it properly, but the video just didn’t produce. My apologies. Below is the amended clip.

Well, hopefully Tucker’s response to Diane (Maura West) about the ONS being a ‘one time only’ event, is true. Personally I think it was wrong, but I’m not a writer of this show. Too bad, I’d fix a lot of things in a ‘retrofit’ sort of way. And may I say that I hate Abby (Marcy Rylan) with a passion. She acts just like a hyperactive Chihuahua. She needs to tone down on the lattes. The caffeine is getting to her.

I know the stuff is kind of late tonight. I had already edited the clip, but on review I noticed I’d left in a chunk including a few commercials and more of the show than I’d intended. I had to re-edit and upload…
