Victor was arrested for J.T.'s murder shortly after he was discovered hiding Nikki in plane sight. Will Rey ever begin an actual investigation to find the murderer? And why would the detective believe that Victor was stupid enough to hide evidence in his own stables? It's happy New Year in Two Scoops.
January 14, 2019
Here, the columnist makes a case for Phyllis being the bad guy and fills in some potential holes in this theory by again suggesting that the reports of J.T.'s death might be greatly exaggerated. Will Victor be convicted and be willing to serve time for the woman he loves? It already feels like we're moving headlong into February sweeps, and there's a change in the writing regime that should lead to different -- hopefully better -- storytelling.
January 21, 2019
Nikki finally revealed the truth to Nick about her part in J.T.'s death. But who is the culprit that has hidden cameras planted at the Newman ranch? And if J.T. is still alive, would Nikki happily slug him with the fire poker again? Love doesn't mean never having to say you're sorry in Two Scoops.

Throughout Genoa City this week, actions had consequences, and the ripples were felt by a lot of people, including many who did nothing wrong. Sometimes a kiss isn't just a kiss, especially when it could tear families apart. Who knew a marriage renewal could lead to bouts of one-upmanship? Duplicity and jealousy and half-truths created enough ripples that you could make a basket out of the overlap if they were made of wicker! Let's dive in and try not to make too many waves in Two Scoops.
February 4, 2019
Okay, so just who was Katie's special friend? Was J.T. alive and well and using his security tricks and technological know-how to snow the Newmans? Or was Victor so diabolical he used his own granddaughter to cover the tracks of framing himself? Only the shadow knows in Two Scoops.
February 11, 2019
The overriding story of the week happened off the canvas, with the untimely and tragic death of Kristoff St. John, The Young and the Restless' beloved Neil Winters. In Genoa City, faulty evidence led to a rushed murder trial and all sorts of angst. Find out what our columnist thinks of the goings-on in Genoa City.
February 18, 2019
Nikki confessed and was promptly arrested. While Nikki faced the music for killing J.T., Lola played the same old "no sex" tune as Fen's singing career hit a rough patch. Did a questionable search neutralize words of love and lead to bracelets being given to several ladies? It's Valentine's Day in Two Scoops.
February 25, 2019
It was a week with delusion, deception, backstabbing, and a coma -- in other words, a typical soap week. But there is serious action in Genoa City, and a major writing change is around the corner. Let's look at what was, what is, and what could be in Two Scoops.
March 4, 2019
After Phyllis threw his mother and sister under the bus, Nick tossed her patootie out of his house. Will Billy's thirst for blood wipe Phyllis' face off the Jabot map? Could J.T. be roaming the earth as a zombie, since the dead and the truth don't stay buried? The day of reckoning is near for our fearless foursome in Two Scoops.
March 11, 2019
Will Summer do the right thing because she's a good person at heart? Or will she do the right thing because it's the only way she can get what she wants? And does she really want Kyle or is he just the shiny toy another little girl is playing with? Was there adequate legal representation in the big trial that nobody attended? Will the female half of the cast be in jail before the end of the month? So much going on this week in The Young and the Restless -- let's explore the madness.
March 18, 2019
Nikki, Victoria, and Sharon faced spending years behind bars, and Kyle's marriage threatened to be a prison of his own making, while Jack's heart was imprisoned by an unknown adversary. Will an alive J.T. return in time to free our ladies? Will Summer renege on her deal after Kyle "put a ring on it"? The verdict's in.
March 25, 2019
February Sweeps seem to still be going on because this was an explosive, exciting, frustratingly short week in Genoa City -- frustrating because five days is too long to wait to find out what happens next! But the dead have risen, or washed out in a storm drain, lives are in peril, and we have to wait five days to find out what happens next. Join our columnist as she gives her Two Scoops of enthusiasm for an action-packed short week in Genoa City.
April 1, 2019
Sacrifices were made for love, but with two different motives at hand. Was Kyle being selfless, or was he still in love with Summer as Lola claimed? Was Rey's intent selfish just to win the hand of his fair maiden? And was J.T.'s brain tumor the cause of all his turmoil? April showers may bring flowers, and it's Two Scoops.
April 8, 2019
In a truly twisted twist, Ashley came back and created a tailspin at Jabot, ousting Phyllis, putting Jack back in charge, leaving Lauren wanting to run for the hills, and intensifying the battle between Jack and Ashley. And that was just Monday! Changes are afoot in Genoa City, and it's anyone's guess where things will end up. Let's jump right in and see what our new writers are preparing to serve us in this week's Two Scoops.
April 15, 2019
Yesterday's gone, and so was J.T. and his storyline. So, just where does that leave our favorite characters? Are the right two Rosales family members leaving town? And should the other two follow them out the door? Has Sharon quit taking her meds? Jack's back in charge at Jabot, and all's right in the world in Two Scoops.
April 22, 2019
One couple seems to be over due to loving the wrong person (or people). One couple is not over despite the same reason. Family loyalty is in flux, and some people are struggling with deep feelings of inadequacy. All in all, a typical week on The Young and the Restless. But there's a dark cloud hanging over Genoa City as we prepare to say goodbye to Neil. Join our columnist as she ponders the goings-on in Genoa City in this week's Two Scoops.
April 29, 2019
With Neil's death, all our beloved Winterses seem to be fading away. Did Lily need to leave Genoa City to heal? Will Devon be able to recover so soon after the death of Hilary and his unborn baby? As loved ones reflected on his kindness and quiet strength, it's a heartfelt goodbye to Neil Winters in Two Scoops.
May 6, 2019
There was closure, there were new beginnings, and there are upcoming returns. There was food and sex, but not together. Are Lola and Kyle heading for happily ever after or happily ever disaster? Will there be babies in the near future? Are we moving toward Dina's death, and will Jack ever put her in a facility that can monitor her 24/7? The groundwork is laid for an interesting May Sweeps, all this while the Daytime Emmys are honoring the best and the brightest in daytime television. Let's get right into it in this week's Two Scoops
May 13, 2019
Even with no memories of the past, Adam Newman was back playing the same old games. Will he disrupt Sharon's life and her relationship with Rey? And when Adam's memory returns, will the feelings of love and hate for his father reawaken, also? It's the three (or four) faces of Adam in Two Scoops.
May 20, 2019
We don't recognize Adam, but that's okay because he doesn't recognize anyone -- but does it work? His homecoming wasn't all rainbows and lollipops, and like the Biblical Prodigal Son, the older brother wasn't as joyful about the reunion as daddy was (and neither were his sisters). No sooner was he back in town than someone put a bullet in his belly. Talk about Sweeps! Let's jump right in and scoop about this improbable return from the not-quite-so-dead.
May 27, 2019
Thanks to a bullet in the gut, Adam woke up from surgery with his memories completely intact. Would Adam be awarded full custody of Christian from Nick, if he chose to sue? Will Victor's desperate act to reunite his family with the prodigal son backfire? It takes one black sheep to know one in Two Scoops.
June 3, 2019
Life goes on in Genoa City, and people make outrageous choices with great regularity. And sure, people suffer, but perhaps the unseen victims who will suffer the most are the children. Join our writer as she looks at the goings-on and the potential impact on the littlest ones on The Young and the Restless in this week's Two Scoops.
June 10, 2019
Phyllis and Adam joined forces to get back at all the people they felt had done them wrong. Did this dynamic duo have a devil's pact as partners in crime? And who will they end up hurting more -- the ones they love or themselves? There's a fire in the kitchen with a dish best served cold in Two Scoops.
June 17, 2019
We had families putting the dys in dysfunction, without so much of the fun. The amount of pain in Genoa City was hard and difficult to watch. Were it not for one engagement and one blissful married couple, there wouldn't have been any happy people. Let's unpack this heavy week on The Young and the Restless.
