During SNL's Weekend Update on Saturday, December 19, 2015, cast member Kate McKinnon came out as Deenie, an avid soap watcher, who updated host Colin Jost on the latest happenings on her favorite show while chowing down on leftover baked salmon. The joke is that, after 40 years, she doesn't really know any of the characters' names, but the nicknames she gives like "Moustache Man," "Skinny Minnie," "Big Boobs," & "Sexpot" while describing high-rise fires and people kept in boat houses perfectly describe the recent plots on Y&R.

Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) sued CBS, Sony, and Bell-Phillip Television Production, Inc. for not rehiring her, because she spoke out about the show's lack of diversity in front and behind the camera. She says she left in 2007 due to racial discrimination but then wanted to return to Y&R or join B&B and was rejected. CBS responded that "after leaving Y&R on her own initiative, Ms. Rowell has attempted to rewrite that history through lawyers' letters and a lawsuit that has no merit. We harbor no ill will toward Ms. Rowell, but we will vigorously defend this case."
UPDATE: On May 13, 2015, CBS & Sony in a motion to dismiss responded that her claims are patently absurd since she never actually applied for any role on Y&R or B&B. "This lawsuit is nothing more than a blatant attempt by Plaintiff to force her way back onto a daytime television soap opera after she voluntarily resigned from her role in 2007." Read the document here!
FURTHER UPDATE: On November 10, 2015, California District Judge John Kronstadt dismissed six causes of action against Sony, with leave to amend if Rowell can prove a more viable retaliation claim. Read more here!

While Victoria and Nikki worry about Victor, he shows up at the prearranged meeting place: a dark alley that is, of course, shrouded in fog.

Sharon and Nick head to Newman Enterprises, where Nick shares his theory with Victoria. She tries to act cool and asks if JT has actually been seen anywhere. Nick hypothesizes that JT is making his way to Victoria, but she and Sharon point out that he’s a wanted man, so why would he risk getting arrested?

However, Brittany cautions that it could be a long and ugly custody battle. After Sharon declares her support, she leaves to tend to the coffeehouse.

However, Nikki later tells Sharon that she’s siding with her husband at the hearing. The next day, Nick and an apprehensive Sharon show up for the arbitration. Michael and Victor arrive and Sharon covers her concern when Nikki isn’t with him. Victor discloses that his wife’s MS flared up, so she stayed home.
