( — “The Young and the Restless” Episode Recap – Wednesday, September 14, 2011.


Jack learned that his shipments in product were not going out as planned and discovered that his workers were staging to slow things down. When Katherine learned of the problems, she laid the blame at Jack’s feet, but he told her he wasn’t to blame for what was going on. Jack soon learned that Tucker was behind trying to sabotage Jabot. When he informed Katherine, she immediately wanted to call him, but Jack said he could handle it. Katherine threw her weight around, pointing out that she was the one in charge. She called Tucker, insisting that he come see her. When she turned around, Jack was gone.

Tucker was happy to see that Ashley was at his home. While she was still upset with him, she soon softened, glad that he was trying to make things right by her. Tucker asked Ashley if they had a chance to try again. He opened up a jewelry box , showing Ashley a huge diamond ring. He wanted the two of them to renew their vows to one another. He wanted to have the wedding that Ashley always wanted. A happy Ashley said yes to his request and the two shared a passionate kiss then proceeded to the bedroom to have sex.

Eden was still having troubles at Crimson Lights, working with the espresso machine. She voiced her frustration to Daniel. Daniel in turn shared his own woes by telling Eden that Lily hadn’t been answering his telephone calls. He believed that she was still upset at him for going to Neil about Cane. As they talked, Eden made Daniel her guinea pig to taste coffee for her. He told her she was improving. As he talked on taking his own advice he was giving to her, Eden told Daniel that it was really up to Lily to come to him.

Cane showed up at Lily’s to see the twins. When she let him in, she told him that the nanny would be there to supervise his visit. When the nanny did arrive, she told her that she had to step out, which disappointed Cane. Talking to the nanny, she told her to make sure not to leave Cane alone with the twins. Cane assured her that he wouldn’t harm their children.

Jill was getting things set in Colin’s room for their romantic evening together. Wondering where he was, Jill called Colin’s phone but received no answer. After waiting for a period of time, a frustrated Jill got dressed and was ready to leave. When she opened the door, a deliveryman showed up at the door to hand her a bouquet of flowers. Assuming that they were from Colin, Jill opened the card that came with them. She fumed when she read a note from Genevieve stating that she knew she could keep Colin from her. As for Colin, who was locked in the wine cellar, realized he was without his cell phone. Berating himself for once again falling for his ex-wife’s antics, he tried to see if he could find a way out. He, unfortunately came up short. With only a corkscrew with him, he decided to down wine, unaware that Jill was there, looking at the open laptop to show two boarding passes out of Genoa City. Jill assumed that Colin went off with Genevieve.

At the Athletic Club, Ronan bumped into Abby. Abby wanted to know when he was going to arrest Tucker for Diane’s murder. Ronan said he didn’t have anything to go on. Abby, however, pointed out again about the poison sumac. Upset that Ronan wasn’t taking her seriously, she huffed off, heading over to see Ashley. When she got there, she asked her why she was packing. Ashley told her it was time for her to move out. Abby thought she was moving at the Abbott mansion but was upset to learn that she was actually moving back with Tucker. She slammed her decision, telling her that Tucker couldn’t be trusted, especially if he killed Diane. Ashley was angry that Abby was back to her accusations and told her she had to go. Abby shot parting words to her mother that she should watch her back. When she was gone, she called Ronan and told him that she wanted to do his original suggestion on wearing a wire to catch Tucker in a lie.

Jack set up a meeting, pretending to be Tucker, in hopes that some of those who were slowing down business would show up. When they did, Jack was honest, letting them all know that he set up the meeting, wanting to know if Tucker was the one that called upon them to sabotage Jabot’s business. They were upset that he lied, but Jacked worked on them by telling them all Tucker’s real motives: he wanted to destroy Jabot because he was bitter that he no longer had control of the company, and was doing it in order to get back at Katherine. After making a few suggestions, as well as a fair business deal with those in attendance, Jack was successful in getting the workers back on track.

Tucker met with Katherine at her office and was happy to hear that Jabot was having problems. He told her if she didn’t give him the company back, he’ll do much more harm to Jabot. Katherine was furious that Tucker would be that spiteful over not having the company for himself. Tucker didn’t care about Katherine’s feelings and once again told her that if she didn’t give him what he wanted, he’ll take great joys in seeing Jabot fall apart. As the two were there arguing with one another, Jack showed up and told both of them about Tucker’s failed attempt at destroying Jabot. He lectured them for using Jabot as a toy to get back at one another. He pointed out to Katherine that he was the one in charge and that he was doing things without any authority from her. An angry Katherine snapped that Jabot was her company and not his. She pushed Tucker out of her way and huffed out of the door. An angry Jack listened as Tucker told him that as long as Katherine had him wrapped his finger, it would always be this way for him. Jack told Tucker that he’d have his help in getting Jabot away from Katherine on the condition that Tucker kept him in charge.

Lily went to Crimson Lights, where she saw Daniel. She immediately called him out for telling Neil about her situation with Cane. She went on to tell him that she couldn’t trust him. Daniel told her he wasn’t going to apologize for caring about her. Unfortunately, Lily didn’t want to listen to him, instead telling him to stay out of her life.

Abby met with Ronan in his van, ready to be wired to get the dirt on Tucker. Ronan instructed her on how to get the information on Tucker, as well as telling her to be calm when she encounters him. Meanwhile, Ashley, who has returned to Tucker’s home, was opening her mail, when she opened up an envelope that had a picture of Ashley and Diane in a struggle in the park the night she was killed. Freaked out, she tried to call Nick but her message went to his voicemail. At that moment, Abby arrived at the door and Ashley opened it, letting her inside. Abby said she stopped over to talk to Tucker, but Ashley told her he wasn’t there. She noticed that Ashley was upset and wanted to know what was going on. A frightened Ashley started to confess that she was scared that what she did the night that Diane Jenkins died would come back to bite her. She admitted to Abby that she was in the park that night. Abby, realized that Ronan was listening to every word she had said, and tried to get her mother to stop talking.

( — Bo Buchanan on “Castle?” Say what? In a new interview with, Nathan Fillion reveals he would like to see his former “One Life to Live” co-star Robert S. Woods play dad to his primetime character, author/police consultant Rick Castle.

Never one to forget his daytime roots, when asked if “Castle” was any closer to casting his character’s father, Fillion suggested that Woods would be a perfect fit for the role saying, “Great question. There are tons of people I would love to see, but less than famous and more personal for me, I would like to see the guy who played my uncle on my first job, my first soap opera ‘One Life to Live,’ Bob Woods. He played my uncle Bo [Buchanan]. I’d love to see him come in and play my dad. For me, that’s … personal. That man actually means something to me. He’s the fellow that said, ‘Hey man, you’ve got to wrap up this soap and move to L.A. You’re gonna do well out there.’ He’s the one who sat me down and gave me the courage to pick up and leave New York when they offered me an extended contract.”

Fillion played Joey Buchanan on “One Life to Live” from 1994-97, and again briefly in 2007 in honor of the soap’s 10,000th episode.

Thanks!” He also said on September 5 that “the Viki/Dorian [Erika Slezak/Robin Strasser] montage was ‘Moments’ by Josh Auer. We had Josh do special version but the original is available on iTunes.” And he responds to fan who asks the name of a song Jessica sang while on the run way back when Erin Torpey was still in the role by tweeting “Wow..that goes way back! That song is ‘I Will Be the Flame’ by a singer/songwriter Sarah Symons.” Check out Glass’ Twitter page for more comments and thoughts on Starr and Baz’s single.

David A. Gregory (Ford) tries to clear up some confusion surrounding “One Life’s” transition to Prospect Park by posting a message on his Facebook page: “Hey everyone. Just wanted to let you know that, as of now, I have no new news about who else is heading to the online show, when the online production begins, where it films etc. Not sure when our last tape date for TV is, although I’m told it’s just before Thanksgiving. Hope this helps. Sorry I cannot answer all questions.”

Is Andrew Trischitta (Jack) making the moving with “OLTL” to online-only distribution? On September 8, the actor responded to a fan who asked if he was interesting in continuing with the show after it leaves ABC by tweeting “I would love to do so.”
