CBS “The Young and the Restless” Spoilers here with the latest Winters family throwback spoilers, and this is one of those real tear-jerkers that really gets us sometimes. Of course, it helps that we know what happens before and after this episode, so maybe we’ll start there.
We’ll start with our intrepid juvenile delinquents in good standing as they’ve made their way to LA to hide out. The reason is, Daniel Romalotti (Michael Graziadei) was involved in a car crash where fourteen-year-old Cassie Newman (Camryn Grimes) was killed. Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) took off with Daniel and have been hiding from their parents since.
Originally airing June 29, 2005, this episode focuses on said parents, as Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) and Drucilla Winters (Victoria Rowell) decide not to call the police, and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) and Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) continue their hunt for the two teens.
Alrighty, the principles are in place and the stage is set, and away we go!
Catching the scent
Worrying has never been Nick and Phyllis’ strong suit as they prefer to control what happens to the best of their ability. In fact, they’re like flies on crap in their persistence, and given Nick’s drive for blood, er, justice to be done for Cassie and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case), this comes to light in this episode during their hunt.
They try the beach in LA, shoving pictures of the teen couple in the face on anyone they meet, and when that fails, they head to a café. Once there, they ask a waiter, who recognizes them but says he doesn’t know where they are now.
Since this proves Lily and Daniel are in LA, Phyllis urges Nick to return to Genoa City to help comfort Sharon. He refuses, citing his need to see justice done on, er, to Daniel for Cassie’s death.
Check your messages
Back in Genoa City, Neil notices several messages on Brendan’s answering machine and asks if he can listen to them while Brendan’s in the shower. Brendan says yes, and it’s a treasure trove of information.
Two messages are from Danial and third is from Lily. They let him know they’re in LA, but also they intend to call back so they would be coming out there. Armed with this information, he calls Drucilla to let her know, but convinces her to stay where she is.
Malcolm then grabs the phone from Drucilla and tells Neil he needs to remain calm or he’ll risk damaging his relationship with Lily further.
This is where CBS “The Young and the Restless” Spoilers has a decision to make. Should we say what happens in the end, or let those that don’t know look it up? Since we like to think we’re not evil, we will say that Danial is acquitted and Lily goes to a boarding school.
There’s far more drama involved, but that’s something we’ll have to look up for ourselves if we want to see it with these theme weeks messing up continuity right and left.
