    Today’s episode was mostly very good! Sharon, Rey, Faith, Nick, Phyllis, Mariah all had standout scenes. I could have lived without Devon/Amanda/Nate – very boring, but other scenes were pretty good. Who poisoned Rey???

    I love it when Y&R’s music supervisors throw in little surprises, using some of my most favorite compositions from the mid-2000’s which have been popping up more regularly the last couple weeks, like the one I’ve affectionately come to call “Sharon’s theme” (as it often accompanied Sharon’s scenes at the time). It played during Rey’s conversation with Sharon and Faith in the 3/8/21 episode, where Rey realizes they’ve all overcome so much, “but we’ve made it through and it’s made us stronger”. Such a nice touch and it’s these attentive little nods to the history of Y&R that add so much to the show!

    Faith learning her internet romance is really with a female cyber bully was devastating to watch and made me cry. This is a really heartbreaking story and Alyvia Alyn Lind is delvering superb performances!

    So Chelsea is the one who poisoned Rey – to set up Adam for the crime.

    I loved Lauren mentioning how she had bullied Traci and regretted it and also that Fenmore had bullied Jamie Vernon – a nice nod to the show’s history. Faith’s being bullied story is superb and Alyvia Alyn Lind is doing Emmy worthy work with it, as is Sharon Case.

    On the plus side: the bullying storyline is superb, with amazing performances from Alyvia Alyn Lind, Sharon Case and Joshua Morrow. I am enjoying Adam being on the run, his heroism in rescuing Faith, and the plot twists with Sharon and Victor being on his side causing much friction. I am surprised by Michael’s white hair but it looks good on Christian LeBlanc. The show always has great sets, excellent direction and an elegance that is classy. I am interested in Mariah’s surrogacy pregnancy story too.

    On the negative side: I am bored to death every time Devon shows up and everyone around him bores me silly too. Phyllis has been reduced to a supporting performer buttinsky who has no real storyline of her own. All the corporate stories bore me. When the show moves away from the stories I enjoy I become completely bored and RESTLESS!!!! (;

    I have noticed that the two storylines that have me glued to the show both feature Sharon Case in them. Faith’s bullying story and Chelsea’s revenge on Adam/poisoning Rey story. She is doing amazing work! Most of the other stories are fair to poor, and I become so bored whenever Devon/Amdanda/Nate are on my screen I practically need to hit a snooze alarm! The show has improved though and that is a good thing for me as a viewer!

    What was up with the switch of Faith actresses on today’s episode??? Alyvia Alyn Lind was playing Faith in a scene between Faith and Nikki in the hospital but the last 3 scenes with Faith there was suddenly a DIFFERENT ACTRESS playing her!!!! I have never seen that happen ever before in all my years of viewing daytime! I sure hope Alyvia returns to the role ASAP!!!

    Both stories that Sharon is part of are 100% great – Adam on the run and Faith’s bullying story but almost everything else on the show is incredibly boring!!!

    I heard that Alyvia was leaving the show to take on other projects. I have yet to see today’s episode, but am surprised they would switch in middle of an episode. That must be due to their taping schedule.

    I am so disappointed to learn that Alyvia is leaving the show ): Yes, I think that probably was the reason but it was really odd! Alyvia is the first scene and then the other actress is in the other 3 scenes that Faith has today!

    Yes, as bittersweet as it is losing Alyvia (her impending exit was discussed at the top of the SOD podcast episode featuring Kate Linder as Guest; she is set to star in an upcoming TV series, Chucky, and actress Reylynn Caster is taking over the role of Faith), it’s so wonderful that she’s exploring new opportunities. Hopefully, Alyvia will return to reprise the role at some point in the future, but regardless, her light will shine bright no matter which path she embarks on.

    That’s wild that they changed actresses mid-episode! The closest I’ve seen to that was when DAYS recast Jack in the late 90s. Mark Valley went into the shower, and when he turned around, it was the next actor, Steve Wilder.

    I had seen the news that Alyvia Alyn Lind was leaving to star in Chucky, and I’m very happy for her. I’ve always thought she was an incredibly talented young actress, and hopefully this next venture is a success for her. From what I understand, it was a very emotional goodbye for the actress and her co-stars. Meanwhile, I’ve heard very nice things about Reylynn Caster, and hopefully she fits well into the show.

    I had walked into my kitchen to get some water and when I came out there was this blonde girl speaking to Christine with bruises on her face, and I was wondering who the heck was she? Then I noticed Nick was there and then Sharon walked in – then I realized it was a nuFaith, even though we had seen Alyvia’s Faith earlier in the same episode – it was so jarring!!!

    If Rey is that mistrusting of Sharon it is definitely time for the two of them to call it quits!

    Does anybody else remember when Adam had sex with Raul??? I was always disappointed that they dropped that story and wish they would revisit it!

    I find all the corporate stories quite boring!

    I hope Rey starts to put the pieces of the puzzle together and realize that Sharon (and Adam) are telling the truth about Chelsea and Chloe (I do feel bad for the latter because Chelsea didn’t tell her just how far she was going in attempting to murder Rey to frame Adam, but in my view there must be consequences, just lesser ones for her than for Chelsea).

    I remember when Christian LeBlanc started on soaps in the early 1980’s on As the World Turns! He was so green as an actor back then – the great thing about having so many soaps is that you could learn your craft over time, soap hop, and find your way to being a talented actor. It’s much harder for young actors on soaps today with so few opportunities.

    LOL, I do remember this! It was an interesting and kind of lurid plot development and then they more or less forgot all about it.

    Melissa Clare Egan has announced her real life pregnancy and that she will be leaving for maternity leave eventually – it will be interesting to see how that plays out story-wise.

    Generally I liked today’s episode. I am glad that Rey is saying he’s leaving – he clearly doesn’t trust Sharon and the relationship simply isn’t working. But he said he would stay for a bit for Faith, which is interesting. Meanwhile Adam is saying he’s leaving to hide out at a farm and has a plan (and also is planning on taking Connor with him!) – I wonder if Sharon will join him??? I doubt it because she can’t really leave Faith at the moment but it is what went through my mind.

    I am glad that Rey is at least thinking that Adam and Sharon’s theory about Chelsea could be true. and also that Chloe has left Chelsea to go home!!!! I feel bad for Chloe, since attempted murder wasn’t the plan as far as she was concerned!

    When did this happen? I don’t remember Adam sleeping with Raul at all. I vaguely remember Adam sleeping with a guy (off screen) for black mail, but it wasn’t Raul.
