When it comes to what's happening on The Young and the Restless, everyone has an opinion -- and our Two Scoops columnists are no different. Every week, our commentators share their thoughts on everything that's taking place in Genoa City... the good, the bad, and everything in between.

If you're looking to be a little nostalgic, we've archived our Two Scoops columns from 2004 through the current week. Now, you can easily flip back through the pages of history to see how storylines were received when they first played out. Has time softened a rocky reception?

Kyle decided to risk all, possibly angering a certain ferocious mogul and even losing the lady he loved, to claim paternity of his son. Will Harrison be the one paying the price in the end? Was Chelsea's next move to destroy Sharon's happiness after her reconciliation with Rey? And will her partner in crime lose the family that she constantly claimed to love so dearly? Will Victoria look for a match with Ashland to blow up Victor and Adam's new company? There was some crazy sibling bonding going on. Read all about it in Two Scoops.

Were the old sets gloomy or was dark lighting the style of the day? Perhaps the gloomy lighting was the reason there were so many negative feelings that led to the physical and verbal altercations we saw in Genoa City last week. These dark and gloomy rooms could have put angels into a depressive state. Let's invade these people's personal lives and see if perhaps they had a good reason for their bitchy tempers.

We don't recognize Adam, but that's okay because he doesn't recognize anyone -- but does it work? His homecoming wasn't all rainbows and lollipops, and like the Biblical Prodigal Son, the older brother wasn't as joyful about the reunion as daddy was (and neither were his sisters). No sooner was he back in town than someone put a bullet in his belly. Talk about Sweeps! Let's jump right in and scoop about this improbable return from the not-quite-so-dead.

Jealous Prince Cane was willing to tank Brash & Sassy to get his revenge on Billy, just because Billy had Queen Victoria's ear. As added bonuses, Cane hurt Victoria's bottom line, and he may have irreparably damaged Lily's burgeoning career. Hear ye, hear ye, as we discuss sweet revenge in this week's Two Scoops.

Victoria met her next possible suitor in a bar. Could Travis be fair game in a soapy competition of musical chairs? Max confessed to wanting Abby's baby to die! Will Ben finally, really, truly accept the fact that his son desperately needs help? And Phyllis and Billy give into their passion and do the dirty deed. Oh, yes, the time has come for talk of betrayal, deceit, and quirky Simon-isms in Two Scoops.
