Re: 🌺🌸 Y&R APRIL 2020 w/ SPOILERS 🌸🌺

Summary for Monday, April 27th from soaps.com:


The Young and the Restless
is pre-empted today and an episode featuring Katherine Chancellor from 1990 was broadcast. Below is a recap of this classic episode that predates Soaps.com’s days of recapping. For those looking for the latest new episode of Y&R, read the recap about Mariah and Theo calling a truce.

 

Doug Davidson introduces classic episodes featuring Katherine Chancellor – today she comes face to face with Marge Cotroke, Kay’s look-alike-and imposter. He explains we’ll also see Cassandra, who was nothing but trouble.

 

 

In a room, Katherine tells Esther to keep her eye on her constantly. When she gives the nod, Esther’s to offer them coffee, find the fusebox and a heavy pan, pull the switch, then hit the imposter over the head as hard as she can. Esther worries she won’t be able to do it, but Katherine stresses it’s a matter of life and death. A knock is heard. Katherine and Esther come face to face with Marge, who says, “******. It looks like we were poured out of the same bottle of ketchup.” The old couple with Marge can’t tell the difference. Katherine and Marge square off as Kay calls her an imposter. They circle one another. Kay would like to see Marge in hell. Marge scoffs that Mrs. Chancellor has no couth. Katherine warns they won’t get away with this. Marge plans on staying on that “jillion-acre estate” and needles about Kay’s husband “Sexy Rexy.” Katherine looks ready to lunge, so Esther suggests coffee. In the kitchen, Esther enacts the plan, then returns to the dark living room and konks someone out. Outside, Katherine gets into the waiting car to return to the Chancellor estate.

 

In the hospital, Leanna Love warns Jack that he’ll have to move fast, once Victor thinks he’s losing Nikki he pulls on that leash. Jack grumbles about the Mustache hooking women and using the children. They return to John’s bedside where Jack vows he’ll show Victor Newman you don’t step over his dad. Jabot’s a family business and he’ll find that out the hard way. Leanna guesses he thinks Nikki can help, that’s why he’s pursuing her. Jack can make Nikki happy and save his family at the same time. Later, John awakens, and Jack tells him he thinks he’s found a way to deal with the Black Knight. John warns against doing anything foolish. Jack says the company needs John. “Dad, don’t abandon us now.” John passes out again. Jack whispers that Victor will pay for this. He calls the ranch for Nikki, but Miguel says she’s out.

In an office, Paul and Victor argue about how to protect Cassandra Rawlins. Victor thinks they have to get Adrian Hunter to show his true colors and alludes to the insurance money he stands to get if she dies. Paul feels they need to get someone in the house to protect her.

 

In their house, Adrian tells Cassandra he loves her. “What do you say we get married?” Cassandra can’t believe she’s hearing this. Adrian reminds her how much they love each other. Cassandra alludes to the mess she’s in. They share a passionate kiss. She’s moved by his offer but she has to tell him no. How can she let him marry a woman with no future? Adrian wants to help her fight the charges…as her husband. He casts doubt on her love for him. Cassandra reminds him they couldn’t honeymoon; she’s on house arrest. Adrian proposes again and she accepts.

 

At Nina Webster’s place, she canoodles with David Kimble – they’re going to have a wonderful life. David wants her, and picks her up to carry her to bed, but she stops him – Cricket’s sleeping upstairs. He can’t wait until they’re alone. Danny Romalotti arrives and embraces Nina. She introduces the rocker to David, who reveals he’s Nina’s fiancé. Nina calls Cricket downstairs and she and David slip out. Cricket appears and flies into Danny’s arms. She teases him about all the women he must be meeting on the road. He says none of them compare to her. Danny has so much to tell her. Later, Cricket wants to make the most of him being back in town.

Nathan Hastings sneaks up on Amy Lewis at the studio and they dance. He’s missed her. She’s missed him too. Nathan’s pleased she’s back in town and thinks it must be fate. They move close and kiss, but she stops him from saying he loves her. She has something to tell him.

Nathan arrives at his office, where Lynn notes he looks like he lost his best friend. Nathan reveals Amy’s leaving to take a job for Arizona. Nate and Lynn join Paul and Victor in the next room, and they fill them in on their suspicions about Adrian. Paul wants Nathan to get into the house and save Cassandra before Hunter makes his move. Victor warns Adrian is a professional killer. Nathan suggests getting two people in there; they’ll get in touch with Carl Williams.

 

Doug Davidson thanks everyone for watching and urges fans to tune in for the next classic episode.

 

Next on The Young and the Restless:

 

CBS will air another classic episode of Y&R featuring Katherine Chancellor.

Seems like an awful lot of these retread episodes are featuring Paul and Chrsitine in one capacity or another... Makes no sense at all, since neither of them is at all 'front burner' and haven't been for some time...

Watching these old shows just points out even more how terrible and cheesy Y&R has become. Sad.

Did Mrs. C ever give up the bottle? She seemed determined to keep drinking today.

@Auntg  Yes, she did. Lots of mileage for Mrs. C after some of these repeat episodes before Jeanne Cooper passed away. She really was the heart and soul of the show and they should, by now, have installed someone as the show's matriarch. No one could replace her, but there badly needs to be someone in that sort of role. Unfortunately, no one has been groomed for it and probably none of the existing cast is up to it. They'd have needed to bring in someone very special from outside and write them some very solid and endearing story lines. Unfortunately, both have proven well beyond the skill level of any of the recent writing teams and casting directors.

Thank you @loveschocolate for the back stories to these older episodes. It might keep me from asking so many questions which @stevieb patiently answers. Being fairly new to the show, many of the characters have left, and those like Sharon, don't look like they do now. Of course, they all have aged, but I thought a different actress was playing Sharon the other day.

@stevieb   Niki is the only character w/ the longevity, seniority and correct age, but a former pole dancer as a matriarch...Eh?
