Young and the Restless, Baby, What Are You doing? What Happened to the Triangle? To Kola? To Kyle?

The Young and the Restless. What happened to the Triangle, Kola & Kyle? Learn more here--->>

Disclaimer! Disclaimer! Disclaimer! This is an op-ed. This is an opinion piece. We have no skin in the Skyle vs Kola game or in the Summer vs Lola game. This is totally based on our perspective as a soap fan/watcher. So fan wars we aren't here for it lol.

It wasn't that long ago we were so excited about Skyle vs Kola. A hot young triangle in Genoa City! It had been a minute. We were so happy, we did an article on it. It had all the elements; young characters, good actors, both couples had chemistry and there was the potential for umbrella stories with seasoned veterans included. Oh the sky was shining bright with purpose. But a mere few months later our skies are cloudy. Well, really it is storming. We are bummed. We can only keep asking ourselves; What happened? How did it all get taken away from us so fast? And the most pressing question of all, Why? Well, maybe the most pressing question of all is; can we get it back?

First off, let's review the timeline for the last six months or so.

December 2018-Purse gate-Lola gets upset when Kyle buys her an expensive purse for Christmas, which for us is how things made a turn for the worst in Kola's relationship.

January 29, 2019-Summer returns to Genoa City and it is good-bye Billy hello Kyle!

Mid-February 2019-Mia attacks Lola thinking it's Abby and Lola needs a liver transplant.

Mid-March 2019-Summer agrees to be a donor to Lola. Kyle and Summer get married. Lola has surgery.

Early May 2019-Kyle and Summer break-up. Kola breaks her virginity with Kyle. 

Very Recently-Kola moves in together and Kyle has proposed ("Marry Me")

We have so many questions. But let's just stick to four;

1) Why is everything moving so fast? This flash lightning storytelling has missed too many beats that have taken away the build-up, the angst, the drama and the pay-off that was pretty much a paint by numbers story. We weren't fans of Summer and Kyle getting married so fast. But if that's the storyline they wanted; we could deal. But my goodness; couldn't the marriage have lasted at least six months. There was more than enough story/reasons why. We ran right past angst for Kola or possibly Kyle actually developing real feelings for Summer (who he has more in common with) and being torn between the two. We did like Summer working at Jabot. That has/had all kinds of potential. Skyle should be still working together on projects with Kyle trying hard not to really fall for her. Side note; you mean to tell me (I don't care how sick Victor is) Victor isn't doing everything he can to get the goods on Jabot using Summer (even as an unwilling or unwitting accomplice if needed). That's the story vs Phyllis trying to do it. We could go on and on but for brevity's sake, we will keep it moving. However, we want to say again this speedo storytelling has really "killed" what was a money in the bank storyline. 

2) What happened to the triangle? Is it just us or do you think Y&R broke off one of the angles? Yes, absolutely, Theo is hot and would be a great addition making the triangle a quad. But what happened to the triangle? We are still trying to figure that one out. Even if you are telling the story at a rabid pace; why abandon the triangle? As previously said, you have all the elements of a great triangle. You have all good actors, with chemistry and with dedicated fan bases. We are confounded. What happened to the triangle? Anybody knows? We really want, no we need to know. We know for sure we never really got a full blown triangle. And now we aren't exactly sure what we have. We are having a difficult time sensing or understanding the direction in relation to the storyline of this trio. They broke off an angle and now we have two separate, disjointed, non-cohesive stories instead of one well acted, thought out, played out soapy triangle? Why? Side note; if Kyle proposing to Lola is a knee jerk reaction to seeing Seo i.e. still telling the triangle storyline? We need more.

3) What are they doing with Kola? Where is their story? Where is the drama? What are the stakes? What is the angst? This will ruffle some feathers but look again no dog in this fight just giving an opinion. Yes, love is about sacrifice. Yes, it's about giving and taking. But it tends to look like Kyle is the one giving up everything. Just an observation. Kyle is who he is. Lola is who she is. But shouldn't they be meeting in the middle? Maybe it's just us but we see no middle only one side. Moving on. Okay let's talk about the obvious. We are going to skip over the fact that Kyle is rich and living like he isn't. (Catch me on Twitter to hear my thoughts on that). Let's talk about how they have no story. They are young, hot, successful and in love. Where is the story? Spoiler alert; bookshelves, picture frames, and a home improvement arc is not a story. Yes, it can be a cute filler. But a filler means there is something around it. Where is the story? They took what was a soap trope that never gets old, when done correctly, rich boy meets and falls for "poor" girl and reduced it to whatever this is. Where is the story? What are they doing? It seems the new regime wanted to change course, no problem. But where are they going? Last time. Where is the story? As a side note; one of our pet peeves in all this is you had Lola holding out for sex just to give it up to Kyle when he was still married? A better story might have been her holding onto her convictions and Kyle trying to be faithful. Then we might have had some angst, drama, and maybe a real payoff. A young lady breaking virginity, another soap trope when done correctly is magical. This one....not at all.

4) What has happened to Kyle?-Deep breaths. He's an Abbott. He's Jack and Diane's son. Hey if he loves Lola and agrees to live with her in that apartment, that is one thing. But come on. He should be a multi-layered, dynamic character. We thought that is where we were headed when the character came back. And we were teased with it. But now.... But everything is still right there; the character's lineage and history and Michael Mealor is a great actor. Don't waste him by minimizing Kyle Abbott. Put him back in Victor's orbit. Pit him against Adam. Let him sleep with momma Rosales. Please. Something. Anything to give this character back his zeal, his umph. A leading man with no love story is not a leading man so yes he needs a love story. But a leading man with only a love story isn't much of a leading man. It's an easy fix really it is; fix it.

Alot has changed in a fairly short amount of time. The good news is it can change again for the better. That's all we want. 

We love our soaps and want good soap.

Dats it!
