Younger & Stressed isn’t in a fantastic place coming off the demise of Ashland Locke, as a result of they don’t have anything occurring on the canvas that’s capturing the viewers’s consideration in fairly the identical means that the would-be villain did. Ideas on the week:


Nick and Sally undoubtedly have chemistry — I seen it greater than as soon as throughout their scenes within the Newman Media workplace. The build-up for a fling/romance is there, what with Nick championing Sally’s trigger along with his members of the family, and Sally profitable Nick’s respect by deciding to carry off on the Ashland story. And with Nick and Adam’s historical past, and Sharon within the combine, the potential right here is important. However will Younger & Stressed go there… or stroll away from sure-fire drama but once more?


Phyllis and her band of not-so-merry mischief makers will undoubtedly come to remorse making an attempt to undermine Diane at work, a plot that has the potential to backfire spectacularly. As Ashley herself said, “That’s a horrible thought.” Nikki has the least to lose on this state of affairs, but when the scheme is uncovered or goes improper, Ashley will look horrible for going together with a plan that might hurt the enterprise, and Phyllis might lose the whole lot. If she sells the lodge to Lily, will get fired from Marchetti, damages her relationship with Summer time, and Diane wins Jack, what then?!?

Relating to this week’s throwdown between Phyllis and Diane, Purple was completely over-the-top for the park however she wasn’t improper. It’s past ironic to have Diane swooping in to avoid wasting the day the place Harrison’s bereavement is anxious when she intentionally put Kyle by way of that as a baby. She was additionally was right in calling Jack out for giving Diane the advantage of the doubt however not her. Jack is so simply manipulated emotionally that he’s a simple mark for Diane. Living proof, their shut second within the Abbott lounge.

Wants Fireplace

It wasn’t a giant shock that Victor turned down Noah’s pitch or that he then made one in all his personal for his grandson to return to the Newman fold sooner or later. The dialog Noah had with Summer time in regards to the house on the Grand Phoenix made it fairly apparent that’s the place his nightclub goes to finish up. Allie, in the meantime, was unfazed by Noah’s warning about his grandfather/household, which was admirable… and to be anticipated. In reality, nothing sudden is going on on this storyline. It’s uninteresting. At their age, they need to be as much as their ears in drama. As an alternative, they’re performing like 50-somethings.

What Within the Blazes?!?

Nicely, you possibly can see what’s more likely to occur with the Chancellor-Winters gang from a mile away. Amanda’s heading out of city for an prolonged time, Elena and Nate are preventing about Imani, and Devon and Nate are experiencing inter-personal stress once more. The scene is about for Elena to go to Devon, searching for a sympathetic ear about Imani and Nate, and for them to finish up in a clinch.

What I can’t work out is why Younger & Stressed selected to play Nate and Imani’s rising bond completely offscreen by way of cellphone calls. It’s mind-boggling. Why not play it out onscreen so we will see it occurring and Elena and others noticing in a means that makes us really feel a part of it and invested?

Circling again to the seemingly inevitable, is Devon *actually* going to cheat on Amanda whereas her mom is in a coma?!? Man, not search for him or Elena, as this would be the third time that she’s cheated on a big different in what, two years or so?

Anyway, if there’s dishonest, there’ll clearly be fallout for Lily’s beloved “household” firm, however will we additionally get our ‘who’s the daddy?’ twist this time?!?

Snuffed Out

Killing off Ashland Locke left Younger & Stressed in a little bit of a lurch villain-wise, and it was felt instantly. Tuning again in after understanding he was gone-gone there was a sense of letdown. At the very least he’s the reward who retains giving in that we now have an investigation that pits Probability in opposition to Abby’s household and will scupper their excellent union. I’d wish to see it. Not as a result of they aren’t an cute couple, they’re, however as a result of we desperately want some soapy shake-ups.

Locke’s demise is inflicting a brouhaha for the Newmans too, regardless of cover-ups being “outdated hat” for Victor and his offspring. Until Victoria and Nick surrender expensive ol’ dad, they’re complicit within the crime. Nick, in the meantime, additionally has to contend emotionally — and maybe legally down the highway — with having been the one to finish Ashland’s life.

Extra: Ashland investigation is an invite

There’s additionally the Harrison facet to this story, which did Diane immeasurable good in her quest to win Jack’s forgiveness, however which did Kyle no favors in anyway. He simply seemed like an enormous hypocrite as he shed tears about his son by no means with the ability to go to with “Father” ever once more when he’d already lower the person out of the child’s life.

P.S. It’s been good to see Kevin with one thing to do once more with this case!

Beginning Fires

Per previews, Adam’s going to work with Jack at Jabot. Wow, this cleaning soap has grow to be one huge job swap! This may actually stick in Victor’s craw, however I don’t anticipate Billy to be pleased about it.

Trevor St. John of One Life to Reside/Todd Manning fame has been forged as somebody on Younger & Stressed. It’s all a giant thriller so we don’t know whether or not he’s a recast or a brand new character. I’m hoping he’s a baddie that may fill the void left by Ashland. Discover out who I believe St. John is perhaps enjoying right here.
