'The Young and the Restless' Sneak Peek: Victor Stabs Phyllis With a Needle

Dylan plans on taking care of Joe.  Will Joe end up dead?
In a new promo for CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless, Victor (Eric Braeden) picks up a needle and stabs Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) in a scene so silly and over the top it must be someone's dream or hallucination. Y&R has been guilty on multiple occasions lately of airing an over-the-top or super-sexy promo only to have it turn out to be a dream or fantasy sequence. In this case, that would be better than the scene actually taking place.

It has been years since the writers at Y&R have really understood what makes Victor Newman tick, instead portraying him as a supervillain a la James Stenbeck (As the World Turns) or Stefano DiMera (Days of our Lives). In the upcoming scene, Victor is in Helena Cassadine (General Hospital) territory.

"Maybe it's a good idea if you went back into a coma," Victor tells Phyllis in the promo before grabbing a needle to thrust into her hand as she lets out her trademark scream. That's when she'll wake up or snap out of it, right? This can't possibly actually take place.

Watch a sneak peek below and let us know if you think this is a dream.

Spoiler Alert: Don't miss Y&R on Thursday, January 29 when Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) loses control of her drinking.

* Lachlan Buchanan Joins 'The Young and the Restless' as the New Kyle Abbott
* Former 'The Young and the Restless' Actress Hayley Erin Joins 'General Hospital' as New Kiki Jerome
* Charles Pratt Jr. Now Executive Producer and Head Writer of 'The Young and the Restless'

Must be Phyllis' dream or nightmare. Or Kelly's dream.

I'm thinking it may be Jacks dream. He is the one that is obsessed with Victor helping Phyllis out of her coma. Jacks wants something to be wrong with Phyllis so he can blame it all on Victor.

The Complete Story of 'The Doctors' (1963-1973)

Daytime TV covered the world of soap operas for decades before finally folding in the 1990s.

Below is the historical feature on the first 10 years of NBC's The Doctors (1963-1973), which is currently being aired on Retro TV. Some of the interesting tidbits include: * The Doctors did not start as a serial; it began as a "half-hour anthology series of medical dramas, set in the large metropolitan Hope Memorial Hospital, and with the four principals alternating daily in the lead role, according to NBC's original announcement. The roles were Dr. William Scott (played by Jock Gaynor), Dr. Jerry Chandler (portrayed by Richard Roat), Dr. Elizabeth Hayes (played by Margot Moser) and Rev.

Melody Thomas Scott Memoir 'Always Young And Restless' Out This Summer

Emmy Award-nominated Melody Thomas Scott admits she is nothing like her The Young and the Restless role, which has seen it all in her forty-one-year tenure on America’s highest-rated daytime serial.

In her first-ever book, the captivating memoir "Always Young And Restless" (Diversion Books; July 14, 2020, available for pre-order now; $26.99, Hardcover; ISBN 978-1635-766943), Melody reveals the intimate and complicated truths of her upbringing as well as behind-the-scenes tales of her own riveting journey to becoming an icon and searching for “normal.” “Even though I have spent almost my entire life as an actress and performer, I have kept my private life well behind the scenes,” said Scott. “Now, I am ready to share these stories of survival and success that have shaped me into who I am today.” As Nikki Newman went from impoverished stripper to resourceful, vivacious heroine—with m
