Today, was the first episode of the two-day return of Shemar Moore (Malcolm) to The Young and the Restless!
And for our money, it did not disappoint. In fact, both Shemar and his longtime Genoa City co-star and on-screen brother, Kristoff St. John, (Neil) knocked their scenes out of the park!
And for any long time fan of the show, seeing these two together again and their dynamic still held weight. However, the circumstances in the 2014 version are much different.
Malcolm has grown up and is the voice of reason, and Neil is being a little bit reckless with his life, and not coming to terms with being blind and what that might mean for his relationship with his much younger wife, Hilary (Mishael Morgan).
On day one of Moore’s Y&R return, newer viewers got a “quickie” history lesson of the brothers relationship: how they slept with, or married, or carried on, with the same women for starters. And how Malcolm always bolts and leaves town when his family needs him. When Malcolm tries to assure Neil he is back to see him, Neil rebuffs him. But ultimately this visit it about Malcolm trying to be honest with where Neil is at this point in his life, whether Neil wants to hear the hard truths or not.
