B&B Wy­att’s Next Move!

Hav­ing spent so long try­ing to whiteknuckle his way through re­la­tion­ships that were doomed from the get-go, it’s been nice see­ing THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’S Wy­att just chill for a beat, ro­man­ti­cally speak­ing. He’s been a great coun­ter­point to his mega­lo­ma­ni­a­cal fa­ther in scenes at Spencer Publi­ca­tions, and all that time spent with Bill ap­pears to be rub­bing off on him. As Wy­att re­builds his life postSt­effy, there’s am­ple op­por­tu­nity for rein­ven­tion with this char­ac­ter. Could re­al­iz­ing that play­ing nice hasn’t got­ten him very far lead him down a more con­niv­ing path? Might a chance en­counter be­tween Wy­att and Sally end up with him giv­ing Thomas a run for his money? There’s as yet no telling, but we hope we get to find out!


THE AGE OF RO­MANCE We have all kinds of mixed emo­tions where THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS’ Scott is con­cerned. On the one hand, we love him with Sharon. Their re­la­tion­ship has grown slowly and nat­u­rally, with lots of flir­ta­tion and fun along the way. But ever y time Scott butts heads with Abby, we find our­selves re­minded of how of­ten the blur­ring of the line be­tween love and hate has re­sulted in a great soap ro­mance. It should weird us out that Scott be­ing Lauren’s son means he’s ba­si­cally fool­ing around with one of his mom’s con­tempo-

raries by dat­ing Sharon, but it doesn’t. And since we’ve ac­cepted that, we should feel as if he’s too old for Abby, and yet we don’t. Some­how, Scott’s por­trayer, Daniel Hall, man­ages to feel age- ap­pro­pri­ate with both women! Mean­while, a big thumbs-up to the writ­ers for us­ing Abby’s history

as The Naked Heiress to re­mind view­ers that un­like most re­la­tion­ships, the In­ter­net re­ally is for­ever. In the age of In­sta­gram, Twit­ter and Face­book and other apps which make it easy to share ev­ery de­tail of your life, it’s worth re­mem­ber­ing that once you do, you can’t un­share it!


I WANT IT NOW! When Zende griped to Thomas and St­effy about feel­ing like a sec­ond-class For­rester, we were im­pressed that his re­marks were rooted in a history that — in his eyes, at least — val­i­dated his feel­ings. Be­ing adopted into the fam­ily and also see­ing how his own par­ents seem to have been marginal­ized, his ar­gu­ments held some wa­ter. Yet we also seem to re­call that the For­resters went out of their way sev­eral years ago to foster Zende’s dreams of be­ing a pho­tog­ra­pher, so it’s not as if they’ve ig­nored his past ca­reer am­bi­tions!

“The only thing that could make you sex­ier,” said Sharon, “is the last name New­man!”

Fear­less pre­dic­tion: Wy­att will say “ouch” in 3… 2…

“Oh, I’m over that, Thomas. Now I wanna be an as­tro­naut!”
