HOLLYWOOD—It sure seems like a ton of couples enjoy playing with fire on the CBS soap “The Young and the Restless.” It hasn’t been that long since viewers finally witnessed both Billy and Phyllis hook-up, but recently these two haven’t been able to keep their hands off of each other. Is that a good thing? Of course, not, what makes the situation even worse is the fact that these two are almost painting a clear picture for Jack, Phyllis’ husband and Billy’s brother that these two have been secretly fooling around right underneath his face.

Phyllis is spiraling out of control mentally; guilt is eating her away, but viewers can’t help, but witness her get this thrill and adrenaline rush from sneaking around with Billy. I mean she totally faked being drunk so that Jack could let her rest so that she could secretly meet with Billy. To make matters worse, these two hooked up at the cabin, where Jack and Phyllis were staying. How crazy is that? I’m certain someone will soon figure out what these two will do when their secret dalliance becomes not so secret?

Expect fireworks, why? Jill will be livid by what Billy has done, Jack will be furious with both Phyllis and Billy, but I can see more rage aimed at Phyllis, and we can probably expect to see some stellar acting from Peter Bergman and Gina Tognoni. I don’t expect a BIG reveal until we get closer to November sweeps, but if it happens sooner, that is better for fans.

Speaking of Jack, he has gotten quite close to Hilary over the weeks after discovering that she is sick yet again. It was teased that Hilary was going to try to reignite some fire between her and Jack, which has created lots of friction between her and Devon. Yes, it looks like Hilary and Devon are headed for a break-up. I mean she didn’t even want her husband at the hospital while she was suffering an epic relapse.

It seems Neil, Cane and Lily suspect a happy reunion, but they shouldn’t cross their fingers on this. I mean Jack and Hilary shared a kiss, so go figure. Wonder how Phyllis will feel when she learns her hubby has been smooching another lady? Could we see that jealous gene that we all know ‘Red’ has emerge to bring down an enemy? You betcha!

What makes the situation worse is the fact that Phyllis finds herself being held captive by sociopath Ian Ward. Yeah, he’s kidnapped Nikki and has decided to take her to that infamous cabin unbeknownst that his former ally is secretly on a retreat there. Hmm, could Ian be the one to blow Phyllis’ cover? It’s quite possible people, quite possible. This only gives Victor the initiative to finally bust his way behind bars to save his wife he turned his back on so many weeks ago. I guess it’s about time, because Melody Thomas Scott hasn’t had a decent storyline since Ian’s arrival to town.

It also might be of importance to note that Travis and Victoria are still doing a bit of a dance, Sharon is still harboring Sully’s true paternity from Dylan (jeez already Sharon spill the beans before your entire world comes crashing down and trust me it will), and Summer is beginning to question Luca’s motives. She should have done that the first time the two came face-to-face people. “The Young and the Restless” airs weekdays at 12:30 p.m. on CBS.
