CBS “The Young and the Restless” Spoilers are here and we’re all set to get a new week started. This week’s theme is about the Baldwin-Fisher family, Much like when he explored the Newmans, Abbots, and Winters, we’ll now get to see one of Genoa City’s other families that may lack in power when compared to the others, but they have just as many touching and difficult stories to share.
This episode comes to us from November 26, 2003, and CBS “The Young and the Restless” Spoilers have throwback spoilers featuring Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) facing the penalty for his crimes as an internet predator. In this case, he not only approaches young Lily Winters (Christel Khalil), but he infected her with the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia.
For many of us, we’ve only know Kevin as an upstanding member of society, or we’ve forgotten about his past because he was reformed in the show and turned his life around.
This is an interesting choice given the current climate where people are having their careers and lives destroyed for something they said or did previously. This is a great example how people can change if they want to, as none of us are the same person we were in our twenties or teens. It raises questions as to whether this showing is meant as a passive aggressive social commentary, or simply because it’s an awesome episode.
For decades, daytime television made a solid living out of rape victims falling in love and marrying their rapists, and the couples would then become super couples. In this case, Kevin’s situation was treated far more seriously than the two of them marrying and living happily ever after like they probably would’ve ten to fifteen years earlier.
We saw this when Kevin asked his brother, Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc), for legal advice about his current situation. Michael, not wanting to get involved, told his brother to take the blood test and accept the responsibility for his actions. It’s a simple concept we often need to hear from someone we trust or care about to help right out course.
Kevin continued explaining things to Michael, even saying his girlfriend was young Lily, which astounded Michael, but when Kevin asked him to give him some money, Michael had enough and slammed the door in his face.
Across town, Lily was working through what to do, and thanks to talking with her parents, Drucilla Winters (Victoria Rowell) and Neil Winter (Kristoff St. John), she worked out what she would do. She told them she would go to court and see that Kevin got what he deserved.
Drucilla and Neil told her they were proud of her as she prepared herself for what was to come.
This is an awesome episode for various reasons, but you’ve heard ours. Now, we’d like to hear your thoughts on the episode, so drop us a line in the comments below, and check back with CBS “The Young and the Restless” Spoilers for the latest updates, spoilers, and speculation.
