With our favorite show being preempted again today, we at CBS The Young and the Restless Spoilers have a tasty spoiler to share. Everyone ready for some fun?
In the next few episodes, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) will go all out to plan the Newman 50th Anniversary Gala to celebrate her husband, Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) career in Genoa City. It’s also going to double as a celebration of Eric Braeden’s 40 year anniversary with The Young and the Restless.
Something old, something new
The news has been everywhere with teases as to what we can expect, and it’s looking like the gala to end all galas.
The gala storyline will blur the line between the fictional world of Victor Newman and the reality of Eric Braeden as cast members from the last 40 years will be brought back in their old roles to pay honor to one of the legends of daytime television. Of course, no one’s saying who it is, but the surprise is half the fun, right?
CBS has dangled the carrot so well, it’s doubtful anyone can refuse, especially those of us at CBS The Young and the Restless Spoilers.
And for good reason.
It’s rare for a show to last as long as The Young and the Restless, Days of our Lives, and so on. Most only make it a few years before closing shop, and those that do make it to a decade or more tend to feel worn out and boring.
That’s the difference between daytime television and other shows. Sure, storylines are recycled again and again, and of course it’s a steady stream of beautiful faces, men and women. But they’re more than that. In many cases, they’re masterclasses on writing and acting as the people behind the show are there day after day for months at a time to create a world for our entertainment.
It’s a treasure to still be able to watch these shows and relish in the good and bad, who to hate and who to love. We live vicariously through the actors and the stories they share. They provide an escape from the regularity of day-to-day life that can beat us down.
This is also not a celebration of existing for 50 years like Star Trek or Doctor Who, but being on and creating new storylines and new characters for 50 years.
In the end, it’s what we’ve come to expect and want out of our shows.
Something’s gotta go wrong
Okay, the love fest is over and it’s time to get to business, and in the soap opera world and CBS The Young and the Restless Spoilers, that means what are they going to do to traumatize us next?
Of course, there’s going to be a fight or two. Maybe three. It wouldn’t be a Newman party without someone somewhere decking or causing a scene. What exactly that’s going to be or what’s going to cause it is still unknown, because CBS is running this thing so tight the CIA would be proud.
One thing that’s come out is there will be a huge crime happen that’ll force those not in a position of authority to assume one.
This alone has our appetites wheted, but this is where they traumatize us before the episode even airs.
Who is hurt or killed? Who’s behind it? What’s going to happen?
Personally, we’re betting it’s going to be somebody that shouldn’t be, or isn’t expected to be that has to take charge. Given some of the current storylines, Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) could be one of them. Especially if Victor or Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) are the ones injured.
Imagine the beautiful conflict between Victor and Billy over how to help Victoria, and what could happen if they’re forced to work together. Or even, and this one hurts just mentioning it, Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) playing hero. Though the latter seems unlikely, there’s no doubt he’ll be around somewhere. Maybe even the one responsible for what happens.
There are so many options, it gets us buzzing. But all we can do is wait for them to air the episodes. Thank you CBS. As much as we love you, this is so not cool.
But we’ll stay tuned as always, as our love for the show will force us to.
