A photo of Eric Braeden (Victor) wearing a mask and smiling in front of the CBS building in Los Angeles indicated that The Young and the Restless is back in production! Which means that new episodes are on the way!
The Young and the Restless — Socially Distanced
But these new episodes have to follow California’s social distancing rules. While making it look like there is no social distancing going on in Genoa City? What might that look like? We have some speculation on the subject.
Victor, as we all know, is a yeller. Yelling in enclosed spaces is one of the main spreaders of coronavirus. But what if they gave him a LOT of room? Everyone who comes into contact with Victor can piss him off – which isn’t hard.
Victor would immediately start yelling, and his poor target would then instinctively back further and further away – maybe even outside into the Newman Enterprises hallways. Social distancing for everyone!
The Girl In the Bubble
Sharon (Sharon Case) is undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. What if she also needs a bone marrow transplant? Patients who need transplants first have to have their immune systems suppressed. Which means they have to go into isolation. Boom – social distancing!
Where Is the Love for Summer and Kyle?
When we last left them, Summer (Hunter King) and Kyle (Michael Mealor) had two hobbies: Talking about how successful they are professionally and having sex.
Since the latter is hard to do from six feet away, what if one of their major business successes requires Summer or Kyle to go to another city/state/country (remember, in Genoa City, the world is still open)? They’d be physically apart. They’ll have to slobber over each other over Skype. Phone sex, anyone?
As for everybody else, well… longing looks across big, empty rooms are hot, right? They can use Phyllis’s (Michelle Stafford) hotel, now that Abby’s (Melissa Ordway) construction has made nobody want to go there. The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS.
