Faith Newman has decided to go full out surly, melodramatic teen on The Young and the Restless.
The Young and the Restless Polling
Sharon is terrified, Nick wants to play it by ear, and Nikki is trying to keep the peace. Who will get through to Faith (Alyvia Alyn Lind)? What almost 3,000 voters expect to see:
Mariah (Camryn Grimes) didn’t like Faith’s friend, Jordan, from the first moment she saw her. But, unlike Sharon (Sharon Case), she didn’t instantly panic. Instead, Mariah tried to offer her little sister advice without coming off as lecturing or overbearing. If Faith intends to listen to anyone, it will be to Mariah, 76% of you suspect.
Faith may have whined that going to a therapist isn’t normal (clearly, she hasn’t taken a poll among her peer group), but therapy may be exactly what she needs, 19% of the audience advises. She needs an impartial professional with no preconceived notions to help her step back and see that her privileged, rich girl life isn’t exactly the hell hole Faith thinks it is.
Daddy’s Little Girl
Nick (Joshua Morrow) isn’t as terrified as Sharon, so he can be calmer while talking to Faith. He can better explain why Sharon is so scared – she remembers what happened to Cassie; although Faith’s late sister wasn’t drinking and driving, she was just driving without a license – and why he’s concerned. Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) is an alcoholic, so Faith’s DNA isn’t great.
Mom’s the World
Only 1% voted for Sharon. She’s a good, loving mom, but she’s letting her memories of Cassie cloud what’s going on with Faith. Faith has a point about being her own person and Sharon should deal with the situation in front of her, not the one that already happened. Then again, she and Faith did have a good relationship in the past. Faith just might need her mom. The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
