Jack, Billy, Ashley, and Kyle gathered for Thanksgiving. Jack invited Summer without telling Kyle. Billy hoped Summer and Kyle would get back together. Summer wasn’t interested in Billy’s opinion, because she still hated him. Kyle slipped his room key to Summer, and they both made up excuses to leave early, and they met up at his place. Summer told Kyle that she’d had stupid insecurities. He was willing to talk and hash things out. She said she didn’t want to overthink this again. Jack asked Billy to do some consulting work at Jabot during his leave of absence. Billy felt like Jack thought he’d spiral out of control without a job. He was offended, and he left. Jack didn’t mean to drive Billy away. Ashley told him that family always returned. Sharon, Rey, Mariah, Faith, Nick, Phyllis, Victor and Nikki helped prepare dinner for the homeless. Devon made a big donation to the cause. Phyllis thought Sharon knew about Faith’s drinking, so she brought it up to her. Sharon confronted Nick for hiding this from her, and she told Faith she’d be punished. Faith explained that the kids were tormenting her over the article. Sharon promised Faith could still lean on her.

Victor worried over Adam. Nikki told him that Adam was getting the best care. She urged Victor to focus on their blessings in life. Amanda found out Elena was spending the holiday alone. Devon invited Amanda to Thanksgiving, but she said she had plans to cheer up a friend. Amanda visited Elena and suggested they order fast food and hang out. Elena accepted the offer.

Elena sent a happy Thanksgiving text to Nate. Lily invited Nate to Devon’s without asking Devon. Devon didn’t want Nate there. Lily said they were family, and life was short.

Abby and Chance planned their wedding. Devon got ordained to perform the ceremony, and Lauren sent Sally to help Abby with wedding dresses. Mariah felt lonely with Tessa out of town, so she hung out with Devon. Mariah told Devon and Abby she was head of marketing at Jabot. Victor thought Billy shot Adam. He told Victoria that he’d put Adam in a psych ward for his own good. Victoria didn’t think it’d help. Rey revealed that Billy was the owner of the gun that shot Chance. Billy said he left the gun at Victoria’s place years ago. Victoria told Rey that she and Billy suspected Adam was the one who broke into her house a few weeks ago. She theorized that he stole the gun. She’d never thought to check the lock box to make sure the gun was still there. Billy overheard Victoria stand up for him with Rey. Victoria noted there was evidence against Billy. He realized she wasn’t 100% sure he was innocent, and he understood that. He wondered if Adam stole the gun and hired someone to shoot him to frame Billy. However, he didn’t think that theory made any sense.

Chance and Rey talked about the case. Rey had enough evidence to bring Billy down to the station, but he wasn’t going to bring anyone in until he had a solid case. Adam hallucinated a young version of himself and argued with his childhood self about whether he belonged in the mental hospital and about whether Victor was to blame. Victor visited and tried in vain to convince Adam that this treatment would heal him. Victor saw Adam arguing with young Adam and called in an orderly. Adam fought the orderlies, but they overpowered him and strapped him to the bed. When Adam was alone, he hallucinated Chelsea telling him to come home to her and Connor. Sally talked to her sister and made her job sound busier and more fulfilling than it really was.

Chelsea found out Sharon and Victor had Adam committed. Chelsea believed Sharon did it to stop Adam from moving away and starting a new life with Chelsea. Sharon said Rey was the only man she wanted and that she had Adam committed to protect him from himself. Chelsea vowed to make sure Sharon regretted this. Victor refused Chelsea’s request to pull some strings and get Adam released. He said they had to stop enabling Adam and let him get therapy to get to the root of what was bothering him. Chelsea thought Victor wanted to crush Adam and turn him into the kind of son Victor wanted. Victor denied it. Victor wouldn’t tell Chelsea where Adam was. Adam told his doctor that Victor sent him there to punish him. He refused to participate in his therapy session, because he believed the doctor would twist his words. Kyle told Sally that Summer would be running JCV. Sally mentioned Kyle and Summer’s failed engagement. Kyle thought Sally was looking for an angle to use to her advantage. He understood, since he used to do things like that. He told her that she could still make her mark at Fenmore’s. Sally was annoyed Theo didn’t follow through on his promise to find out who would be running JCV. She wanted him to get dirt on Summer so that Sally could take her down. Theo agreed to do that if Sally would spy on the Abbotts for him.

Rey told Chance that the earbud found at the crime scene had Billy’s DNA on it. Billy told Jack he was a suspect in Chance’s shooting, but he promised he would be okay and wouldn’t backslide. Lily defended Billy when Rey asked how she could be so sure that Billy wasn’t the shooter. She said that Billy had changed. Lily accepted when Billy asked her out on a dinner date. Summer told Kyle and Jack she was taking the job at JCV. They wished her well. Kyle and Jack got served with papers for Theo’s lawsuit. Sally told Jack that Theo asked her to spy on the Abbotts. Theo and Kyle argued about his lawsuit. Summer told Kyle not to let Theo get to him, because Kyle was the better man. Kyle offered Mariah Summer’s old job. She was interested, but she didn’t make a decision yet. Rey told Billy that they’d found a gun registered to Billy broken down in a dumpster. The police thought that it was the one used to shoot Chance.

Y&R Article: Twitter Upset with Donny Boaz

Young and the Restless Opinion Article

Donny Boaz (Chance on Y&R)

Article by Suzanne 11/19/20

Actor Donny Boaz (Chance) is taking some heat on social media (especially Twitter) because some fans think that he’s too conservative. More specifically, they’re upset that he supports outgoing president Donald Trump.  Donny has clicked like on some tweets, and retweeted some tweets, that make it clear that he is a Republican and favors Trump. Some fear that he is a conspiracy theorist.  He also follows the president and Ivanka on Instagram, and he follows Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham and many other Republicans on Twitter. Also, there are many fans who like him or don’t care about his politics. To be fair, Boaz also follows many liberals on Twitter – and not just ones that he’s worked with.

These Y&R fans believe that if you support Trump, you also must be anti-gay and racist.  They’re calling out Boaz and even arguing with him about his conduct on Twitter. Now, let’s make it clear that Donny is not exactly James Woods (an actor who posts constant right-wing things on his Twitter and argues vehemently with people about it; Boaz follows him and sometimes retweets his comments).  He has only clicked like on a few posts, and retweeted some posts, like most people do on Twitter. He’s not ashamed of his views, but neither is he confrontational about it. Yes, he supported President Trump when he was elected. We don’t know what he thinks of him now or how he voted.

What this disagreement comes down to is this: if you’re an actor with a particular political opinion, should you be tweeting about it; and if so, do fans have a right to make a fuss about it when they disagree? And should the TV show that you’re on be concerned that your views might conflict with their more inclusive (or at least, centrist) message? After all, most TV show networks are businesses, and they do care about their image and how they’re being represented.

Boaz was born and raised in Waxahachie, Texas (a suburb of Dallas), so he’s bound to be conservative.  If you read his social media, it’s clear that he loves football, and he’s religious. In fact, according to his town newspaper, “Boaz graduated from Cornerstone Christian School in Waxahachie in 1998, where he was a standout athlete in football, basketball, cross country and baseball.”  He also supports the military. Indeed, he had parts in both “Dallas” and “Six,” but that doesn’t really have anything to do with his point of view. Those jobs just happen to coincide with his views, which you may or may not agree with. Many people who grew up in that area of the country are Republicans (Texas usually votes Republican, as it did in this recent election). Some are not. He was probably raised that way. Most people get their political and religious views from their parents, especially if their parents are very active in their church or more politically engaged.

Like many Texans and Southerners I’ve known, however, Donny is always respectful to his fans on social media. Even those berating him are treated with respect.

When Y&R posted this message, asking fans to show Donny Boaz some love, Cait Fairbanks (Tessa) said “psh,” which is a dismissive remark. And then Camryn Grimes (Mariah) posted an animated GIF that says “that’s my girl.”  Both actresses post a lot about politics and are very left-wing, so, judging from this, they apparently have some problem with Donny’s politics as well. I like them both, but perhaps they should have talked to him personally at work instead (unless I’m completely misreading this, and they’re just teasing him, and they really have a good rapport with him). I like both actresses, but that seemed kind of tacky to me.

Personally, I believe that it’s fine for actors to express whatever beliefs they want. However, I don’t think that their viewpoints should affect their jobs, as long as they do their jobs well and they don’t say anything particularly reprehensible.  Actors are entitled to be Republicans and support Trump, whether anyone likes it or not…just like actors, such as Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, GH), are very outspoken about being liberal Democrats and hating Trump.  Fans, of course, are free to disagree.  Many celebrities have gotten in trouble before for things they’ve said online. Sometimes they lose their jobs because of it – such as Hartley Sawyer (ex-Kyle), who lost his job on “The Flash” because of some old tweets. I really don’t think they should, in general, and their beliefs shouldn’t affect your enjoyment of their work. I think that people who have time to search through old tweets and who’s-clicking-like-on-what really do have too much time on their hands. If you only have friends and followers who agree with exactly everything you do, then you probably won’t have too many friends or followers left. Also, the world would be very boring if we all agreed on everything.

I completely understand the anger that people have about Trump and his supporters, and I understand that people who are LGBTQIA+, women or persons of color feel particularly upset because they’ve been targeted by many on the right, and Republican Senators are slowly taking away their rights.  However, I think that our time is probably spent better in fighting for change in positive ways than griping about some daytime actor who is just trying to do his job.  Perhaps instead of villifying Donny Boaz, we should be reaching out to better understand him and why he feels the way he does, and he could do the same for us. As President-Elect Joe Biden says, “There’s no place for hate in America.”

Chance and Abby decided to get married as soon as he got out of the hospital. Adam visited Chance. Chance felt he’d repaid his debt to Adam. Chance didn’t think Adam was good for Chelsea, and he thought he’d be better off if Adam wasn’t part of his life anymore.

Chance told Victor that Adam was struggling. Chance also revealed he and Abby were engaged and asked Victor’s blessing. Victor welcomed Chance to the family. Sharon told Rey that she visited Adam to see if he knew who tried to kill him. Rey said he didn’t want Sharon around Adam, because he thought she might get hurt. He told her that Adam kidnapped Chelsea. He felt Adam destroyed everything he touched. Sharon said Adam didn’t destroy her and he wouldn’t destroy what she and Rey had. Sharon had reservations about whether Rey could be impartial with Adam’s case, and she ultimately decided that he could.

Adam told Chelsea that Billy basically confessed to shooting him, but he wasn’t going to seek revenge. He tried to reconnect with her, but she said she wasn’t sure she’d ever trust him again. He said he had to believe she would, since that was the only thing holding him together. She told him not to put that on her. Chelsea asked Billy if he tried to shoot Adam, and he refused to justify it with a response. Rey overheard Billy say that Chelsea should be disappointed the shooter missed.
