You know it’s heavy duty drama time on Y&R when they bring in the signature tune, Nadia’s Theme, in the midst of the sadness of a major game-changer!
Finally, in a storyline that many fans were not “fans” of, Sharon (Sharon Case) confessed the secret she has been hiding for months … and months. Baby Sully is really Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sage’s son, Christian! This week in key scenes, Sharon was cornered by the fact that Patty (Stacy Haiduk) had reached out to Nick to tell him that his son Christian is alive, and Sharon knows all about it. Once Nick confronted Sharon about what Patty blurted out, instead of weaseling her way out of it, she actually fesses-up! What was great about that was that it was not overplayed or made into histrionics as played by Sharon Case, whose character Sharon is the unassuming-victim-turned-deceiving-manipulator in this piece. But, Sharon had good reason as she believes that she didn’t want to break Dylan’s heart, yet, she broke the long-time love of her life, Nick’s heart in the process.
Later, when Nick storm troops up the stairs to gather Christian and take him from Sharon and Dylan’s home, it’s Dylan who is next in line to find out the gut-wrenching secret. Sharon tells him that Sully is not his son, and the twisted story of how she miscarried Dylan’s baby, but couldn’t bring herself to tell him. Then, how she fell into the clutches of a vengeful Dr. Anderson (Elizabeth Bogush) who made a fragile Sharon believe she was pregnant and kept drugging her in the process, while keeping her away from Dylan. When Dylan learns the truth, once and for all, it provided one of the most heartbreaking moments in the storyline played to perfection by Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton and Sharon Case.
Nick is livid and plans to take Christian home with him, but after an outburst of his anger, frustration, and horror of the whole situation, where both he and his half-brother Dylan were both duped by Sharon, he decides to let Christian stay the night with Sharon and Dylan.
It was a nicely played explosive moment from Y&R stalwart, Joshua Morrow. The capper came when Dylan wanted to be alone with his “son” and went to be with him in his room upstairs and held him. Burton hit the right notes, again. How can Dylan lose another “son”? Remember Chelsea duped him, too, with Connor!
And no matter how this plays out; if it’s a custody battle between brothers, or Nick gets his son back without a court order, there is still a HUGE secret looming that will really gut-punch Nick! He’s not even Christian’s bio-dad .. .his dead brother Adam is the boy’s father, and Chelsea knows and hasn’t said anything, just as the duo are getting closer.
While the storyline too many was maddening, let’s focus on the terrific performances this week of Steve Burton, Sharon Case, and Joshua Morrow in the baby Christian reveal.
