“Who Dunnit?” Storyline – Great Work Thus Far
November 3, 2006

After watching the character of Carmen Mesta change from the friendly, innocent, workaholic into the conniving, sneaky, quiet, little bug; Viewers of the Young and the Restless were treated to a shocker this week as she was mysteriously murdered and then left to rot in the alley behind Neil’s new jazz club, Indigo. A clever story on the writer’s part to begin with; making it into a “Who Dunnit” is even better.

In doing so, the writers have opened up a huge storyline involving almost everyone. So far the prime suspects have been Drucilla and Neil, but now Devon is in the mix, as well as Brad. Not to mention everyone who knew Carmen basically had motive to get rid of her before she died. Victoria was upset at having to fire Dru to avoid a lawsuit; Jack was scared that his secret about Jabot was about to be let out by Carmen; Sharon wasn’t pleased with Carmen trying to destroy Neil and Dru’s marriage since Phyllis did the same thing to her and Nicholas’ marriage; and finally there’s the possibility of someone from her past being angry at her since her past isn’t exactly a delightful picture to remember.

So who is it? To be quite honest, for the first time in a while I truly have no idea. I hope it doesn’t involve any main characters who’ve been on the show for any length of time as I’d hate to lose yet another vet. I’m thinking it’s more probable that Professor Korbel and/or Jana were involved in the murder. I think that would be a more surprising route for the writers to explore, rather then having it end up being someone from her past that we were never introduced to.

My only other gripe would be if the writers decide to drag this storyline out too long. I know Lynn Marie Latham likes a faster pace, and I hope this storyline is no different, as it will quickly become boring if we’re left pondering for months about who the killer is. So far though, I’ve got nothing to complain about and I hope this storyline ends with as much excitement as it started with.

On another note, rumours have swirled of either Lauren or Phyllis suffering from Post Partum Depression. So far, it seems to be leaning toward Lauren, however I really hope that this is just a plot device to throw us off from thinking it will be Phyllis. Nick and Phyllis have had this perfect life since officially getting together and I think they could use some real drama to test their relationship. Thus far it’s been all fun and games. (Aside from ending their relationships with their significant others)
