Courtesy/CBS

Before the clock strikes twelve and we ring in the New Year, Y&R will end the final week of 2016 with the airing of a classic episode featuring the wedding of Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). It happens next Friday, December 30th.

These nuptials were originally broadcast on April 13, 1984, and featured the first marriage of one the most beloved couples in daytime history.  Look for longtime current cast members in the episode as well including: Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott), Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) and Doug Davidson (Paul Williams).

Programming note: Due to CBS’ broadcast of College Football’s Sun Bowl, this airing of Y&R will air from 10-11AMPST, while Y&R will retain its regularly scheduled timeslot on the the east and central time zones.

So, are you looking forward to seeing this classic soap opera wedding all over again next Friday? Comment below.

    I love these classic rebroadcasts— and the added bonus is we now know what happened after that moment in time, so I am sure some of the dialogue will be tainted with irony and inadvertent foreshadowing of things yet to be. To see some of the old sets like they were might to be, to hear the lovely real music the show used to have instead of some tech’s guy IPod playlist– and it was a grand affair–not too much of those any more on soaps— and may be the best fun of all is laughing at all those ugly hair styles and clothes we thought we so great at the time– what were we thinking back then LOL—

    I too love when they rebroadcast old episodes. Remember when every grand event took place at the infamous Collinade Room? It will be fun to see past cast members and try to rehash the storylines. 1984 was the year I graduated from H.S. I can’t believe I was watching on and off since then. Well now that eveyone who will read this, and knows basic second grade math will figure out my age, I will say MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!! Happy New Year as well. And as always, tune in tomorrow for the next episode…

    who was the woman trying to poison/ kill Nikki at the wedding 4-13-1984 on Y&R? that’s a little before I began watching the show. And why was she trying to kill her?

    Who said anything about Luke and Laura? What about Anna and Robert’s wedding in Italy? Or their “From Here to Eternity” love scene on the beach? Or Tiffany and Sean’s hilarious wedding at the Q mansion?
    Or flash forward to the 90′s when Brenda locked eyes with Sonny.
    Or how about a flashback to the Q mansion back when it was the social place to be.
    Y&R is demonstrating how to incorporate backward glances into the present. This is how you do it.

    rebecca1 replied

    LOL.. GH….I’d love them to flashback the whole show!

    Happy New Year!

    Rose replied

    GH could take a note from this, and do a flashback of Dr. Hardy or Alan Q reading to the kids at GH at Christmas. Or even have another Q pick up the mantle like Ned or Michael and continue with this lovely tradition.

    The first of many of their marriages. How many times have they tied the knot with each other? I’ll bet they have as many as Sonny and Carly on GH.

  7. Joe says:

    My assumption is they are pulling out this classic because something related to this will become important to an upcoming story line. Ms. Sussman is great at breathing life from the past, and I think this will be no different. Something will tie into this in 2017.

    Finally—we’re getting a REAL classic episode. The last several that aired as “classic” were just episodes that happened a short while ago. That’s good for refreshing anyone’s mind about the current story or trying to reel in viewers who might have just started tuning in but I wouldn’t call episodes like that classic. Something from the mid-80s is classic and Y&R knew how to breathe fire into the stories back then and the budgets were much bigger than what they are today. If I remember right, Nikki’s dress for that wedding cost $300,000. This was also when Bill Bell was alive so no story ever got told before it’s time. THAT is what we have for classic episodes and I’ll take those any day!!!

    The woman holding the baby was Liz Foster, Jill’s mother. I believe the baby she held was her grandchild… I think it was Snapper’s child (Liz’s son.)

    Ron replied

    It was Liz Foster. But I think others here are correct. Nikki had the baby before the marriage.

    Theresa replied

    Yes, the baby that Liz was holding was indeed Victoria, born onscreen in 1982, I believe she was almost 2 when Victor and Nikki got married

    In the future, all you need to do is turn on CC and it will list everyones names. The if you don’t know them, Google their character name along with Y&R and it will give the entire history of the character. Pretty cool feature. This is how I knew the baby was in fact Victoria. When the baby said, “mommy” it said that Victoria said it.

    I enjoyed the flashback to Victor and Nikki’s wedding. There was a young adorable boy that they flashed on a couple times and when Nikki walked down the aisle, he whispered “Mama”. Who was that supposed to be? I have to admit to not watching this show until 2000.

    Halley replied

    Do you think that was Dylan????

    Bright blue eyes…..and we know now all these years later she had that other baby….
    It must be!

    They need to release ALLLLLLLLL of the past episodes, from the very beginning. I’d pay for the opportunity to watch all those shows from before my time to when i was old enough to start watching up through now even. It breaks my heart I can’t see these.

  22. Jo says:

    By 1984, Victor was planning on marrying Nikki. When Eve read about this in the newspaper at the sanitarium, she tried to switch places with her roommate, who was about to be released but wanted to stay in the sanitarium. Eve knocked out a caterer and changed clothes with her to get into the hotel where Victor and Nikki were getting married. After the wedding, Eve went to Nikki’s room, and she prepared to stab her, but she was interrupted by Nikki’s sister, Dr. Casey Reed. So, Eve climbed into Victor’s trunk which was about to be placed on the plane for his honeymoon. At the last moment, the newlyweds changed their minds and decided to stay home. Victor learned that Eve had escaped; he found her and returned her to the sanitarium. A couple of months later, while Victor and Nikki were vacationing, Eve and Nikki’s former lover, Rick Daros, escaped from the sanitarium and returned to Genoa City. Rick had amnesia, forgetting he had tried to kill Nikki earlier in the year, and he became Eve’s lover. After breaking into the ranch, Eve stole money from Victor’s safe, and the two escaped to Europe.

    I’m only 38 y.o. n have only been watching this since the 90s as I entered high school in 1992, so no I’m not interested in this episode; in fact I’m thoroughly confused n quite annoyed by this old and ancient episode no matter how classic only cuz I haven’t the slightest idea who a lot of these ppl are, so its highly frustrating. I’m more partial to actually knowing the characters n storylines of everyone on screen….trying to Google to keep up with this episode n get some point of reference is totally n completely exhausting!!!
    BTW who’s the chick trying to poison or kill Nicki n why exactly is she doing that?

    Reply

    Alan replied

    The woman trying to kill Nikki was Eve Howard, Victor’s former secretary who claimed her son Cole was the result of a one-night stand with Victor. When she learned that Cole was named in Victor’s will, Eve came up with a scheme to slowly poison Victor and claim his fortune for her son. Eve’s plot was foiled when Victor’s ex-wife Julia stumbled onto the plot via a phone call she overheard between Eve and her partner in crime Max. Eve was sent away to a mental institution which she escaped from just prior to Friday’s episode.

    Years later while Victor was presumed dead (but was really living in Kansas with Hope), Cole came to Genoa City and eventually got engaged to Victoria and wrote his mother to tell her the good news. Eve freaked out that her son was going to marry his half-sister and flew to Genoa City to tell him he was Victor’s son. Before she could spill the beans, Eve fell into a coma from some tropical disease she got on a cruise. She died before being able to tell her son the truth and Cole and Victoria eloped. Victor read of his daughter’s marriage and returned to Genoa City to tell the newlyweds they were kin. The marriage was annulled but later Victor found a letter from a man claiming to be Cole’s father. He had a DNA test performed and it proved that he was not Cole’s father. Years later, Victoria and Cole had a daughter they named Eve but the baby died shortly after her birth.

    That was Niki’s conjoined twin. She suffered from a blood disorder which was causing poison to flow through Niki. It was imperative that they be separated. She then grew up trying to poison Niki with the mindset that Niki was supposed to be poisoned because they should’ve never been separated….Bad blood between them!

    Bill Bell wrote the episode himself. Not only was it a great wedding, but he made it clear that the Newmans and Abbotts were now the main families of Y and R, as he appeased many fans of the earliest years of the show when he brought back all the Brookes girls and Liz Foster as a farewell to them; they were the original families in the 70s when the program was only 30 minutes.
