‘Gwen’s’ (Nadine Nicole) concern allowed her to catch ‘Neil’ (Kristoff St. John) with ‘Hilary’ (Mishael Morgan). During that same day, ‘Ian’ (Ray Wise) somehow manged to break into the prison that ‘Adam’ (Justin Hartley) helped him to recently escape from. Yes, major plot developments within each story line were projected this week on ‘The Young and the Restless’.
To say that ‘Gwen’ has been used would be an understatement. ‘Neil’ has run this poor soul through the ringer, while he’s kept his ex-wife unconsciously contained in her former dream house. ‘Gwen’s’ persistence allowed a mystery to be solved, but also put her life in grave danger.
After hitting ‘Adam’ over the head with a blunt object, ‘Ian’ ran back to the penitentiary where he was originally contained. This slippery demon continues to astound, as he invents new ways to torture his enemies. Despite ‘Summer’s’ (Hunter King) eyewitness testimony and ‘Phyllis” (Gina Tognoni) recent one-on-one conversations with ‘Fred’, it will be hard to prove that ‘Ian’ is behind the ‘Paragon Project’, or even that he was on the loose in Genoa City. Finally, there was ‘Victor’ (Eric Braeden), who was thrown off his game when this scoundrel was brought to him by the warden, seemingly establishing a hard alibi.
So, ‘Neil’ remains out of character and appears ready to threaten a kind-hearted woman who he claims to have feelings for, while ‘Ian’ seems to be setting up ‘Adam’ to take the solo fall for their combined corporate espionage scheme. Both scenarios establish various plot possibilities for daytime’s reigning soap opera as the fall begins to unfold.
