Romance Spotlight: Y&R couples on the horizon? Read more here--->>>
Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?! The malls have already put out some Christmas decorations. The Christmas commercials and music will go full throttle starting next week. The remaining part of 2018 is flying by!
In that Days promo, we got a peek at the first soap mistletoe of the season. That got us to thinking and we thought we'd discuss "shipping" in Genoa City. In the last few weeks there have been break-ups, shake-ups, budding romances, teasing and some light chem testing for some GC characters. We are going to make our couple wish list and suggestions for soap santa.
One of the hottest new couples in Genoa City right now is Kola (Kyle and Lola). And we couldn't be more excited. Y&R needs a new hot young couple like we need oxygen. Michael and Sasha sizzled in their first scene and we knew instantly this was a couple to watch. The rich boy falls in love with the "poor" girl trope has already been eclipsed by their good looks, smiles and chemistry. Kola are at the top of our soap couple to watch list at Y&R and we can't wait to see what happens.
Phick 2.0 has been rebirthed. Congrats Phick STANS. This version hasn't had quite the same umph or the same heat as the original. It's no shade to the actors (Gina and Joshua have had insane chemistry with other co-stars throughout their careers) or to their STANS. Just sometimes you can't go back.
And then there are the times you don't think you can go back but you can. Did it get a little cooler all of a sudden? Did you feel the "Shilly" breeze that whisked through Crimson Lights last week? Sharon and Jason scenes made us go hmm Shilly 2.0? Shick/Phick/Shilly/Philly quad?! Yes, soap santa. Please soap santa.
There are some newbies that we want some serious chem testing done on. Remember when soaps did that? Y&R should just put them in scenes with characters and see what happens until something does; Nate, Kerry, Rey (yes we have claimed Shilly already lol), and Mia. Nothing says death to a newbie more than putting him/her a dull pairing. Chem test please.
Teriah is hitting a rough patch so what others are planned for them? The no brainer was to have Noah came back and have Tessa torn between two siblings. But sometimes soapland won't let us have nice things. Also, Abby and Arturo could use a jolt of something. They are young and hot. They should be lightning up our screens.
We also have Summer. Now that "Bummer" can we use that name? No? Well how about "Silly"? Still no? Okay, but did Summer and Billy get a name? Anyway, since Summer and Billy appears to have only been a one night stand who will Summer be paired with? She's a young legacy character . She needs a steamy pairing.
There are rumors of a Jack and Kerry pairing. That's a no. Remember when they flirted with that idea with Jack and Hillary? Jack does need a love interest. It's time for Jack to find someone and really settle down. The best idea I've seen is to bring Colleen Zenk (ATWT). Yas. If not, if Stacy Haiduk is really done at Days, bring Emily back for Jack.
There have also been the whispers of a Vane (Victoria and Cane) pairing. If they go there, Social Media will be something. So much could be said on that. What will be said is; don't rush it. Victoria needs some loving for sure. She's been put on the back burner for more than a minute. But there is no way on this soap earth Cane would fall for Victoria anytime soon with Lily sitting in a jail cell. So, not sure if the rumors are true or what Y&R has in store if it is true. But please please don't have this pairing on steroids. Give it time.
