After a couple of years of sputtering about and losing its focus, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS appears headed for a resurgence now that Maria Arena Bell has taken over the reins, and one character benefitting from the change is Jill Abbott. Under the Lynn Marie Latham regime the once feisty Jill had been inexplicably watered down. Heck, the highlight of her day was having tea with Katherine. But these days she's back in the mix as the savvy, sexy spitfire she used to be going head-to-head with Nikki, trying to outsmart Gloria, and mixing it up with Jeffrey. It's been a long time overdue, and no one is more deserving than the always divine Jess Walton.
