Young and Restless: The Itch You Can Never Scratch
In one of the rare instances these days, Victor Newman and Nikki Newman Chow had a close moment remembering their beloved first born granddaughter, the late Cassie Newman on The Young and the Restless this past week.
When Nikki genuinely looked concerned for Victor as she approached him at the Genoa City Athletic Club displayed to all that no matter what their relationship is and who they are with Nikki will always care for Victor.The tender moment when Victor reached for Nikki’s hand to hold while they spoke about their romance of old was a true testament of how they used to be. The way that he gazed into her eyes just made viewers see that even though they are with other people they still have something that their current partners do not have.
Her hasty decision to get married to David pronto was all the proof I needed to realize that she still wanted her man back and to upstage him while she was at it. Classic Nikki, got to hand it to her she did get him back and boy did she have to hear about it in that elevator! For someone that doesn’t give a damn on what his ex does, Victor sure as hell sounded like a jilted party by going off on Nikki for getting married to David out of town. It was just vintage Victor and Nikki when they started to tell the other’s lover about their bad traits and what they were going to get by being saddled with. The air wasn’t stifling Nikki as she said it was in the elevator; it was that all consuming passion she and the mouth stash still have for each other.
That unique occurrence at the club, Victor had his mask put away you can see the yearning that he has for the love he once shared for Nikki. Just the little things they did in just a few short moments it gave viewers a peak at what these two used to have and what makes them always come back to each other.
I know “Through the Eyes of Love,” is their song but while I was listening to the radio another song came on that made me think that the unofficial song for the Newmans should be replaced with Lenny Kravitz, “It Ain’t Over Til’ Its Over.” I know Lenny’s not sophisticated for these two but when you close your eyes and listen to the lyrics you can see why it suites them to a tee.
The longing, yearning of things that were left unsaid and undone when the Newmans parted ways this time around, lingered all over their faces. You can tell and almost feel that Victor had something of great meaning to tell Nikki but David showed up and like other fans, I too wanted backhand him for his ill-timed enterance. Over the years Victor and Nikki have tried to move on but they just can't seem to scratch that itch they have for each other. Here's hoping that head writer Maria Bell doesn't produce the ointment that will cure them of it.
