31 November 16th, 2015 Jensen Buchanan Makes Her Y&R Debut As Elise Moxley & Bombshell The Judge Had An Affair With Victor!

Courtesy/CBS

On Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, fans of Another World got a very special treat when Jensen Buchanan returned to the world of daytime drama in her new recurring role on the number one soap opera as Judge Elise Moxley,

Buchanan played twins Vicky and Marley Hudson on the now defunct NBC soap opera, plus Sarah Gordon on One Life to Live, and Melissa Bradford on General Hospital.  This is Jensen’s first soap role since 2002, and she is  already playing an integral part in a key plot!

Today, viewers learned that Victor (Eric Braeden) and Adam (Justin Hartley) conspired to keep the appeals Judge (Moxley) from throwing the book at Adam!  Victor was holding something over Elise’s head.  Turns out thanks to Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) outing her secret in Adam’s hospital room, it seems like Elise was having an extra-marital affair while married to her husband, Senator Moxley.

But Nikki is the one who next gets a bombshell from Elise!  Clearly not liking Nikki’s tone, Elise says the affair was with Victor!

Watchthe  scene from Jensen’s first episode of Y&R after the jump!  Then let us know; what you think of Jensen’s not-so-nice character?  And how do you think her relationships with Nikki, Adam, and Victor will play itself out? Is there an Elise and Nikki catfight in the works? Comment below!

    Now, that was good stuff!!
    I liked that..
    Y&R has become very good since J&S were fired, I stay awake now, haven’t nodded out once since Pratt came on ..
    Only one I need to FF to avoid using my barf bag is Devon..
    He;s gotta go to Siberia.
    I wish Jean and Shelly would have given Tucker the Billions, then we would have a great actor still with Y&R and giving Victor a run for his life, or money ..
    ((the billions was a total waste on Devon))

    I’m waiting for the next disaster!!
    Adam will be free; let the games begin !!

    You can lay off the personal insults Bart. su0000 was just expressing an opinion same as you just did. I’ve been watching Y&R for almost 30 years and Chuck Pratt doesn’t hold a candle to the painful to watch Lynn Marie Latham years of Clear Springs, the reliquery, Nikki and Jack’s state Senate runs, and Brad’s out of nowhere past life. Now THAT was some bad Y&R. I’ve come to the realization that with Pratt at the helm, we’re never going to get back the Bill Bell storytelling and character depth we’re used to seeing but at least for me (except for the disaster stuff which I hated and is so not Y&R) a majority of his stories have at minimum been fun to watch and he did a bang up job with the Adam reveal and the fallout that followed. And that’s my opinion.

    Bart replied

    And I was expressing mine – and that’s MY opinion!!

    Mr. X replied

    I’ve seen you post your “opinion” on another Y&R soap site. It has turned into the nothing but whining about how bad you think the soap is now. Which is fine but no need to take it out on other commenters who have a different opinion.

    Timmm replied

    Its HER opinion Bart! Just because you dont agree with her you dont have to attack her!

    Bart replied

    That’s right – my opinion and my right to express myself – deal with it, “Mr. X”.

    Go to China if you want to censor Freedom of Thought or Expression on the internet.

    Timmm replied

    I know su0000, I am happy with Pratt, cannot stand Devon and would have loved Tucker to head up the Chancelor household since Jill couldnt do it!

    [Chloe Mitchell aka Katherine “Kate” Tina Valentine.] Magic was created when Riley, Olivia, and Isabelle Jones were cast to portray Cordelia “Delia” Katherine Valentine Abbott. Jeanne Cooper had many scenes with the actors who played Delia. Yet Delia was killed so that another child would be named Katherine. Based on screen time alone Delia (death, trial, and gala) is shown from Billy’s and Victoria’s perspective. To marginalize the mother, in the death of her child in favor of the father, is incomprehensible when Chloe was the better parent. In the aftermath of Delia’s death, Chloe deserves better representation. A Mitchell/Abbott daughter would have provided more drama in the constant Newman/Abbott conflict. With Johnny and the new Katherine, Miller spent a lot of time trying to recreate the Delia magic.

    I recall a Restless Style office scene. Chloe hit Billy over the head with some kind of object and Billy reciprocated in another scene. Could this be the reason Chloe is treated like an “extra” in the death of her daughter? If Y&R places Delia’s death on Bingham, previous owner of a software company, I want expert witnesses on the stand: crime scene investigators, tire tracks expert(s), medical examiner (autopsy report, external, and internal injuries), car paint analysis, etc.

    Where Chloe ended up after being placed in Paul’s custody no one knows. Her name did not surface as a possible suspect before Paul was informed that Ian started the fire. Did Chloe even know about the Halloween event that would honor her daughter? Did she surmise that Adam would be released from the hospital to rescue his family and be considered a hero?

    Judges settle court matters with lawyers. An emergency hearing and/or conference call, preferably with medical testimony about Adam’s condition, might prevent a prison hospital transfer. An appeal is being heard within hours/days of the fire with Newman interference for the judge to rule in Adam’s favor. Where but Genoa City does a judge meet with a convicted criminal before hearing his appeal? Amazing! [There has been no mention of the estimated cost of the fire, possible rebuilding, and/or liability for any death.] Christine is hitting all the right notes as the prosecutor; but LB is being vilified by Adam’s and Chelsea’s fan base. A criminal trial is about justice for the victim. The memory of Cordelia “Delia” Katherine Valentine Abbott deserves better. Y&R made sure her photograph was not singed or destroyed by the fire.

    No rich person is delusional enough to assume that a personal affair with a judge, back in the day or more recent, would equate freedom for Adam. An indiscretion from the bench is better blackmail material. A public outcry could force the judge to resign or be voted out of office at the next election. In bribing a judge, Newman loses personally and professionally with possible jail time. Too many “Dick Tracy’s'” are solving their own crimes.

    I completely agree with you about the character of Chloe and how Delia was only killed to further the Villy coupling. It was also done to sever the tie between Chloe and Billy b/c there was still a fanbase that wanted Chilly (Chloe & Billy) to get another shot.

    I believed Chilly had great chemistry but I always saw the writing on the wall and just rooted for Chloe as a character to get her own s/l and love interest.

    There is no indication that Adam was offered a plea deal before trial, for a lighter sentence, that was rejected outright. Adam, believing Delia’s death was an accident, threw himself on the mercy of the court with a jury trial and lost.

    Very happy to see Jensen on Y&R. AW was my first story. But how ho hum is this! Victor has something on her? Victor has something on everyone. Nothing at all new here yet. My hope right now is that she and Nikki volley back in forth. And those scenes would be best played out with the two of them dressed to the nines and bumping into each other in front of the mirror in the powder room.

    Love Jensen! Love the storyline! Love the reveal!
    … but what happened to her face?!?

    I havent seen the episode, just the picture on here, but whoa!!! I love Jensen, but her face is seriously distorted!! Her eyes are slanted so far upwards!! It pains me to say this, but she looks like a younger version of that “cat woman ” Jocelyn Wildenstein. She has not been.acting for 13 years!! Whatever would possess her to have THAT much work done?? She is a beautiful woman!!

    When did Victor have the affair? Recently?

    Barbara from Atlanta replied

    I wonder the same DAMN thing. When exactly was Victor carrying on with this woman?? We’ve had NO hint that he has been running around on Nikki.

    I admire the creativity here but not the inconsistency. Victor has been MANY things over the years —- manipulative, domineering, controlling, etc. However, he has NEVER been a womanizer running around carrying on meaningless affairs with women.

    I can only recall one instance where a happily married Victor cheated on Nikki — His affair with Ashley in the mid 80′s that resulted in a 15 year love triangle between Nikki/Victor/Ashley. In every other instance, he has only started a relationship with another woman when he has been separated or divorced from Nikki.

    I don’t really believe that, after 35 years of a tough relationship with Nikki and her current battles with alcoholism and multiple schlorosis, Victor suddenly would carry on an illicit affair with another woman —- unless he was madly in love with her like he was with Ashley.

    We’ll have to see how this plays out but, so far, I’m viewing this premise as WEAK!!!!

    At the beginning he told Nikki they were not together. She was married to Jack Abbott at the time and he & Ashley were divorced.

    I like this actress and hope she is put on contract. I dont remember her being on GH but I do remember her on OLTL. She could pass for Sharon’s older sister! Anyway, she is right smack in the dab of everything. They should make the Moxley’s a new power family. They need to recast her husband if they do it. He is a good actor but he doesnt hold up against Jack and Victor and he doesnt have that soapy, powerful look of a senator/rich guy. Sebastian Roché who plays Jerry Jax on and off on GH would be perfect! Him and Victor going toe to toe would be epic!

    Timmm, Great insight, It would be SO nice for Sharon to FINALLY have some family of her own in her corner. Then The Newman’s wouldn’t be the only powerful game in town. The writer have water down The Abbotts SO much with adding Phyllis and Billy has been a snore. What about David Mason Daniels (he was on Capital) he would be about the right age? I love Roche but since he has the accent I am not sure he could pull it off.

    Thats the nail on the head Vicki, the Abbotts have been watered down!

    I love the way Y & R is going lately. I think the only story I pass on or mute is the baby stuff. It is boring . I’m happy to see J. Buchanan back. She was always such a great actress.

    Tedious, plot-driven drek – This show just keeps getting more and more ludicrous and difficult to watch for this 30+ year viewer.

    I don’t watch Y&R anymore but it’s cool seeing Jensen on a soap again. I liked her on AW.

    I think having Jensen on is fantastic. I only wish they would get rid of the dead wood characters so characters like this one that could be rounded and interesting and add to plots could be allowed to interact with the characters that fans love and want to watch. This show has TOO many characters that folks don’t want to see.

    Long time viewer; have absolutely no insights into most of the information included in these comments. I watch, but had never taken it too seriously until, around February, when the roof fell in. Then, I felt angry with the writers.

    A couple of the present storylines are somewhat interesting, however, the Neil thing, the Music Box thing, the Sharon baby thing, the Jack/Kelly thing, the Noah/Lucas thing, and the fact that Adam’s car accident is still being staged as a hit and run without any proper vetting of the incident itself leaves me cold. I fast forward a great deal of the program.

    Guess I still watch, but not very much. I find the comments here more interesting and fun than the program.
