The Young and the Restless moves further along with its story about a young women learning the ropes of the high fashion modeling world, when Summer (Hunter King) Newman takes some pills given to her as a pick me up!  Only, it puts her into what appears to be a coma and she is not waking up!

This sets the stage for Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Jack  (Peter Bergman) to both be very concerned for young Summer, while Sharon (Sharon Case)looks on! And as we know, Sharon switched the last paternity test making everyone believe Jack is Summer’s bio-dad, not Nick!

What do you think of the modeling storyline cautionary tale that Y&R is weaving? Are you on board with the story?  What do you think will happen next? Watch next week’s CBS Daytime promo for Y&R after the jump, which also previews that Billy (Billy Miller) is closing on on his daughter’s killer when he confronts Adam (Michael Muhney)! But is the killer really Adam?  Weigh-in on all the stories for next week!

    More and more, this is getting too ridiculous. Instead of Summer, Y&R should give this so-called storyline to Courtney (Summer’s VERY ANNOYING BFF). And, besides, of the 2, Courtney is the real TRAIN-WRECK anyway…LOL!!!!! Yep.

    Gosh, I could like this story but once again how much proof do people need to see it’s now “The Young and The Depressive”. There are some bright spots and I continually torture my soul and watch, because I’m over a 40 year loyalist to CBS’s daytime. I might have to do as I done back in November & December and skip episodes and only watch for whom I enjoy in performances. It’s sad to watch for performances and not the stories. The stories I’m liking is mighty lean.

    We had Fen on drugs, Jack on drugs and now Summer with only 15 month into her tenure from Jill Phuck-up Phelps….geez! Where’s the romance at, don’t give me Tyler & Abby (I like her when in scenes with Abbotts or Newmans) or Noah & Courtney (poor RA, great talent stuck in no win story again) because there wasn’t a setup at all to have the viewers to get to know these characters as couples but it’s like Jill is throwing pasta against the wall to see if any will stick! YR writers take a clue from Days, which is doing it perfectly today. She would like the viewers to be invested in these dark, gloomy and dreaded stories and think it’s entertainment? Not to me at least but disappointment, anger, frustration and bewilderment.

    JFP is the worse EP to write for women. At all her soaps she has headed, the women characters are weak, submissive, uninteresting and stereotyped always have women to fall at the feet of the men. She loves to write for male characters and have done a pretty good job for the masculine characters. The balance on YR is whacked, no romance, no levity or humor, no close friendships to say of, JFP makes “islands” on her soaps where most characters only interacting among a few and no feeling of community in Genoa City. Community feel has all characters inter-meshing with one another. They don’t have to have stories together just connections.

    Why could Summer not be written as young, intelligent upcoming junior business executive at Jabot. She could be her mother’s daughter and have a side of devious attentions to move up the corporate ladder. But no we get another story coming from a soap about a girl being model, which has been rehashed & rehashed since the 1970s, nothing fresh or creative.

    I just want my YR to be somewhat good & entertaining again, I know it will never be as Bill Bell’s YR but please writers stop using old writer’s ideas and put some imagination into the writing and let the viewers be inspired to watch.

    OH it could be corrected quite easily by Kay Alden, Jack Smith and Ed Scott, sigh…..Bill’s team!

    I call it “The Dead And The Depressing”. If everything I have read on Jill Farren Phelps is True, I Wonder How Long CBS Is Going To Allow Jill To Torture Hunter King!

    I find it ironic that after all the brouhaha about HK that she now has this big story coming on. If all of this was to work up publicity for her upcoming storyline I think that more than one person should be fired from this show. This whole sceniero reeks of something underhanded. You now what they say in show biz…..there is no such thing as bad publicity. This just leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

    And mine too, unless they either kill her off or keep her in a coma for a couple mts. and replace her with a more suitable Summer.

    So predictable, of course Sharon will be off the show somehow, they won’t let her get away with her support of MM, be sure of that, she will pay but I think she knew what is coming, they knew she was close to MM, so why not give her a story that will eventually send her away, now Hk can get front and center attention without even saying a word, how convenient. If they say this was before all the MM stuff they are full of it.

    I agree 100 %. I think she (H.K.) will be taking over the screen with one big story line after another just to keep her happy. Well once M.M. is gone I don’t give a hoot what happens. Ratings for Y&R are up right now but that’s because everyone wants to see M.M. final show. The joke is M.T.S (Nikki) & J.M.( Nick Newman) think its because of them. Read their twitter. Like their taking credit. Maybe next time guys hee hee!!

    I think it is time to put Jill Farren Phelps in a COMA!!!

    Jacqueline…you just made my day…HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Anyway, I don’t know if putting that fire-breathing JFP in an actual COMA would help. I mean…JFP is so heartless and so arrogant…so much so that she might like the coma. LOL!!!!!

    I wish this young actress well in this storyline and hope she really pulls it off. So much pressure on her right now. I’ll be watching.

    Maybe she should cancel her contract and leave while in a coma. That way the pressure is off her.

    It seems like the wrong angle for the canvas right now. Last year at this same time we just finished Jack’s popping pills for pain– the we had Fen taking drugs, and now we have Summer. Is Courtney some kind of undercover cop? Or is Alex aka Zach a dirty cop selling drugs? I’m sure this twist has to be related to the Summer popping pills story. If they can related all three “drug stories” to this Courtney and Alex thing — okay, but just as a separate story– it has been down too often in the last year to go down that route yet again.

    OMG

    mind numbing
    juvenile
    teeny bopper
    bubble gum
    barbie

    this is the best they can come up with?

    UGH… at the very least… any modeling stories… should be left to B&B

    why don’t we just prescribe coma’itis for the audience as well

    I think that if I was in a COMA and someone had Y&R on, I would DIE!

    @Jacqueline that has to be the funniest comment I have heard in a while and so refreshing! Right about now I am wishing they had never aged this character 10 years for all kinds of reasons.

    Phyllis would be so impressed that her daughter is in a coma just like her. Where in the hell are the writers? This is so stupid. Hunter is used to better writing on her Disney show!

    I think all of the media attention has been leading up to this story line coming out .. Wow…anything to get the fans to stop watching the longest standing # 1 soap in the USA… The story lines are falling into place now…. I have not watched since the day Michael Muhney announced that he had been fired..Been watching the show since its original air date back in 1973… If MM is gone ..Then so am I…

    Not that or matters to me which company picks up the two shows, I just want them both to return. However I am highly disappointed at ABC simply because they owned those shows so they had absolutely NO reason whatsoever to cancel them. Y on earth did they do so???? I REALLY & TRULY HOPE & PRAY that Prospect Park sues the pants & panties off ABC if this ENTIRE ISSUE goes to trial. I LOVE AMC & OLTL…But ESPECIALLY OLTL. I want them both to return in a HURRY!!!!

    How sad today. Its getting closer guys. Billy in Adam’s condo knows something and Adam almost cried when Billy left. What marvelous actors and what a shame we lost them and Hunter King I hope she dies in the coma. I can;t stand to see her or Eric Braden.

    ITA! After Summer dies we actually find out that neither Nick or Jack is Summer’s dad, but that Danny Romalotti is the father of Summer!

    That would be a funny one Sharonda. But as long as they kill her off I don’t care. The stupid way the story goes she will probably need a blood transfusion and that will tell the answer. But I made myself a promise once Adam is off at the end of the month so am I & the only thing I’ll vote for is Bold & Beautiful and General hospital.

    After all the Michael Muhney/Hunter King ongoing saga, I wouldn’t be surprised if they leave her in a coma, let her die, or send her off on a modeling assignment and let her contract run out, like they did Michael Muhney. Never more to see her again.

    Today Chelsea & Adam got married. It was so sad to hear Adam promise Chelsea how he would spend his life making her happy but with tomorrow’s previews as he says goodbye to Jack that old fool that has his big ugly nose in everything walks in. I just knew he would have to spoil the moment. What I like about Victor is the Mute button on the T.V. gets some usage.

    Fran…I TOTALLY AGREE!!!!! I cannot stand old Igor…I mean Victor (LOL!!!!!), either!!!!! And…that’s how I feel when that annoying wail-fest Nikki cries and rambles on and on about ‘her son’ Dylan The DULLARD…I reach for the Mute button on my remote control…QUICKLY!!!!!!! Yep.
