There is a new stupid storyline, and the Y & R viewers are furious:
Bethany is back. She finds a million dollars with a passport in her locker (the locker where Dylan found the envelope), and there are instructions for her to leave town and disappear. She figures out that it's Victor's money, and that Victor wants her gone. She confronts Victor, and she agrees to take the blame for the missing pages from the diary. Now Paul, Dylan, and the police are looking for her.
The viewers are furious, and they want Chuck Pratt gone. The storyline is an insult to the intelligence of Y & R viewers. Bethany, a barmaid who does not even know Adam, and who has nothing against him, framed him for murder... Really? How stupid does Chuck Pratt think that the Y & R viewers are?
Mal Young has no power on the show. The only way to get rid of Chuck Pratt is for the viewers to stop watching, and for Y & R to be cancelled...
