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.
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.

I wasn’t able to post yesterday due to a couple of errands I had to run for my mom. She’s having medical problems and can’t get out to do her usual things. I’m sure you understand.
Anyway, Stephen was just so sweet yesterday. I’m totally loving the relationship between Tucker and Ashley. Stephen and Eileen Davidson make this pairing utterly believable. I love too how they had Ashley trust Tucker. The only cog in the wheel is Katherine (Jeanne Cooper.) I’m totally non-plused how they can make Katherine so dismissive of Tucker and believe the worst about him. Like Victor (Eric Braeden) and Jack (Peter Bergman) haven’t done their share of things that were worse than anything Tucker has ever or could ever do. I truly hope they end this soon. Kay’s beginning to sound like an old hag blathering on about nothing. Certainly this former alcoholic who admitted to giving Tucker away like an old pair of shoes, has no cause to stand on her high horse. I hope Ashley goes to Katherine to give her a good dose of reality considering Victor and Jack’s shortcomings…all of them. Given too Katherine threatened to tell Ashley…I love that Tucker already told her. Nipped that one in the bud, didn’t he?

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!

Damn, I was hoping Tucker would be onto Blake (Paul Leydon). It seemed like in the preview they were leading to his being found out. Come on writers, make Tucker more intelligent than this. This guy has more than either Victor (Eric Braeden) and Jack (Peter Bergman). He’s got a sixth sense to him that needs to be brought to the fore. This is The Tuckernator afterall. I also hear that Laura Stone (Skye Lockhart Newman) has been given her walking papers. Once more, a soap opera getting rid of one of its better assets. Laura is amazing and I love her wit and her ability to throw a good line. Seems what Michael Logan said in a recent article about the death of Zach Slater, played by the impressively handsome and wonderful Thorsten Kaye, that the only thing that soaps are interested in these days are as he termed it, “Soaps are overpopulated with pretty but vacuous underpants models.” I’m afraid I have to agree with him. The really good actors are let go or not hired in order to fill out roles with ‘yes’ men and women who will not challenge the integrity of the work they’re being asked to do. I only have to cite what happened to Tamara Braun in her three roles as Carly on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Ava on DAYS OF OUR LIVES and as Reese in ALL MY CHILDREN. Instead what we have is a group of over-hyped frat boys and sorority gals getting off on hiring the ‘it’ girls and guys that will acquiesce to the whims of the idiot writers.

My gosh, that Tucker is a manipulative bastard. I am loving Stephen’s handling of Tucker’s underlings. So well played like a master. He’s got both Victor (Eric Braeden) and Jack (Peter Bergman) off kilter while manipulating Abby (Marcy Rylan) and approaching Victoria (Amelia Heinle) in broad daylight in front of Jack, offering her the co-CEO job at Jabot without really mentioning it, but we as the viewer knew exactly what he was dangling in front of Victoria in front of Jack. Talk about a true chess player. This man certainly knows the meaning of checkmate. What cheek. He’d give James Bond a run for his money and give more than enough competition to Daniel Craig to make him worry about the future of his job. I know, “Hyperbole much….” Don’t care. It was wonderful seeing Tucker working that room like he did. Makes me not want to get on Tucker’s bad side. My feeling is I might end up like Ms. Fields (Gemma Arterton) did in QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Yes, thinking of starting a campaign to have Stephen Nichols as the next Bond villian right there behind Mads Mikkelsen (La Chiffre, CASINO ROYALE) and Mathieu Amalric (Dominck Greene, QUANTUM OF SOLACE.
