After a thoroughly traumatic week of "The Young and the Restless" (we can't bear to watch animals, real or stuffed, suffer), we're hoping the next one will bring us and the people of Genoa nothing but happiness.
Oh, who are we kidding. Bring on the drama. For example ...
Chloe FINALLY learns the truth about Mac and Billy. Which seems to us like the perfect impetus to go jump Chance's virginal bones. Yow!
Adam, bless him, still uncaught and on a misguided mission of vengeance, manipulates Ashley into believing that she killed someone. Because Ashley, despite her apparent physical age, is emotionally at about ... nine right now. Hey, we don't blame her. She's got both a real haunting (courtesy of Sabrina) AND a fake haunting (the handiwork of Adam) going on.
In confession, Father Todd realizes he's talking to his (and Paul's) sister, Patty. At last! Mary Jane revealed! We can't wait.
Phillip, always a barrel of laughs, reveals that Cane can't return to Australia. And not just because of that old adage about never being able to go home. Because of a secret. In his past. Where secrets lurk until the worst possible moment.
Sharon, pregnant, alone, and pining for Nick, is offered a surprising deal to avoid jail time for her kleptomania.
And finally -- look out for appearances by Roxanne and Estella next week, along with "Access Hollywood" correspondent Laura Saltman as a relentless reporter out for Nick and Phyllis.
What do you want to see next week on "Y&R"?
