There have been so many interesting characters on The Young and the Restless, and we the fans have developed a love/hate relationship with a number of them. Some characters haven't been allowed to shine while others have. Many have come and gone, but maybe they were gone too soon and should be resurrected.

It wasn't hard for Nick to say, 'I'm sorry,' as he doled out apologies to his mother, his son, and his sister.

It's all a balancing act in Two Scoops.

Adam was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Will new roomies Victor and Adam finally have the chance to bond together behind bars, as father and son? Chloe wigged out and held onto the evidence that proved Adam's innocence. Can anyone possibly rein in a lollipop-sucking Chloe with her ever-ready, handy-dandy cigarette lighter? It's time to think outside the box and not go back to square one in Two Scoops.
