Y&R History

Christine & Michael - Evolution by Christopher

Christine Romalotti looked up to Michael Baldwin as a mentor. He was a brilliant lawyer, and she was a paralegal trying to establish herself in the field. When she was assigned to work with him on a case, it was the thrill of her legal life and she threw herself into the work vigorously. However, in no time at all, Michael's occasional flirtatious comments turned into something more blunt and inappropriate. Soon, Christine had no choice but to tell him she would not ever sleep with him. He made it clear that if she refused, she would lose her job. When she did, in fact, lose a promotion that had been nearly guaranteed, she knew it was because she hadn't gone to bed with the man. On a remote getaway, she got him to admit everything and tape recorded the conversation. Armed with proof, she went to the courts.

In an effort to make her life look less than perfect, Michael set her husband, Danny up to look like he'd cheated on her with a groupie. Meanwhile, he married Hillary, an old girlfriend, in the hopes of making himself look good. Danny was exonerated, Hillary left Michael, and Christine won her case in a court of law and he was stripped of his ability to practice law. With Hillary out of town, Michael broke into her apartment - the one adjacent to Christine's - and burrowed a hole through her closet wall. By the time Nina - her best friend - discovered this, Michael was through. He bound and gagged Nina, then waited for Christine. When she came home he held her at gunpoint and nearly raped her. Paul rescued her, shot Michael, and he was sent away to prison.

Years later, Michael was up for parole. Christine begged the courts not to free him, but they did. In time, he proved himself to her enough that she supported his bid to reinstate his law license, much to the surprise of everyone who knew them. Paul Williams, her new husband, was most bothered. When Danny returned and battled new wife Phyllis Summers in court for custody of their son, Michael and Christine were on opposite sides of the table. Though she despised him, she respected him. In a shocking move, Michael asked her to join him in launching a law firm, and she said yes. They became partners and Paul was disgusted.

While Christine's work took up more and more of her time, her marriage fell apart... especially when she refused to have kids. Michael strategically sent her out of town on business for an extended trip, essentially destroying what bond remained between she and Paul. And when Paul decided to go after her, Michael brought Isabella Brana to town to seduce him and keep him away. It worked, Paul and Isabella began a romance, and Christine filed for divorce. When she did return, she shocked everyone by sleeping with Michael and accepting a marriage proposal. However, when Michael admitted to her on the night of their wedding that he had hired Isabella to destroy her marriage, Christine ended their relationship and told Paul everything. Christine and Paul reunited and Isabella went insane, faked her own death, framed Christine, then returned to kill her. Michael saved both Paul and Christine from the deranged woman. He felt responsible and begged forgiveness. In time, the wounds healed and Christine and Paul both began to view him as a friend, and ally.
