Opinions, critiques, and commentary about The Young and the Restless
Two Scoops is a weekly commentary column written by our staff of writers. Sometimes you might agree, and other times you might disagree. Either way, we love hearing your opinions, too, so be sure to send us your thoughts.
When it comes to what's happening on The Young and the Restless, everyone has an opinion -- and our Two Scoops columnists are no different. Every week, our commentators share their thoughts on everything that's taking place in Genoa City... the good, the bad, and everything in between.
If you're looking to be a little nostalgic, we've archived our Two Scoops columns from 2004 through the current week. Now, you can easily flip back through the pages of history to see how storylines were received when they first played out. Has time softened a rocky reception?

Mariah had been kidnapped and was being held hostage against her will! Was the perceived good guy, Stitch, behind the diabolical deed? Will Abby ever realize that her supposed friend may be a wolf in sheep's clothing? Should Tessa get a clue from the nonworking app that Stitch had recommended? And please, was there a bathroom connected to the bedroom where Mariah was being held? It was all about how well you really know someone in Two Scoops.

All the plotting and manipulation in Genoa City leave us wondering if the evil outshines the good. Tara and Sally keep scheming after ridding themselves of Summer. Tara is trying to lure Kyle back into her web of darkness. Sally wants to keep her job at JCV, but did Summer set up a plan to blow up Sally's coveted position? Will Ashland give in and treat his cancer? Will Tara get sole custody of Harrison? Is Harrison Kyle's son, or did Tara tamper with the DNA test? Join our Two Scoops columnist as she peeks into Genoa City and shares some of what she sees this week.

There have been too many goodbyes when, almost immediately after a loved one's departure, another beloved character appeared to be on the way out also. Will Tara's diabolical plan backfire and chase away the very person she desires as her own? Will Chelsea return with Connor after Adam trusted her to leave town with his son? Will Victoria be able to let go when Ashland's time has come to an end? And where's Mariah? It's pouring cats and dogs (or not) in Two Scoops.

They certainly are an interesting bunch and I believe that's the reason The Young and the Restless has chosen to air a week of some of their most memorable moments. Can any of these characters be changed from some of their destructive propensities? Join our columnist as she offers an insight and her opinion on each member of this Newman clan.

We've had parents leading with guilt, parents dealing with grief, and parents denied custody of their children. They all claim to love the kids, but who loves the kids unconditionally and really works at it, and who loves the kids for how they make the parents look? There's a lot to analyze in the parenting and love styles in Genoa City. Let's dip our toes in during this hot summer week and see if the water's fine in this week's Two Scoops.
