SOAP BYTES: Deacon’s Back on The Bold and the Beautiful; Would Cassie Approve of Sharon and Victor on The Young and the Restless?
Y&R BYTES: The anniversary of Cassie’s death has always been a time for reflection on The Young and the Restless. Thursday’s episode was no different. The seventh anniversary began with Victor (Eric Braeden) visiting Cassie’s (Camryn Grimes) grave. Of course Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) arrived shortly after and together they grieved the loss of their granddaughter.
Meanwhile, Nick (Joshua Morrow) spent some time talking to Cassie at the church, where Sharon (Sharon Case) found him. Later, Noah (Kevin Schmidt) sat by her grave and told his guardian angel he needed her advice.
The Newman family’s remembrance of Cassie made me pause to wonder how the character would have ended up if she were still alive. Would she be a Genoa City saint, or the town slut like Sharon?
When Sharon asked Victor if he thought Cassie would approve of them being together, the first thing I thought before he would respond was OH-HELL-NAW!
I did like the toast to Cassie. For one day we caught a glimpse of what Y&R might be if it’s writing wasn’t a mountainous pile of dung 29 out of every 30 days.
Daisy (Yvonne Zima) asked Daniel (Michael Graziadei) to share with her what happened on that terrible day long ago. When he wasn’t ready to share, Daisy became upset. When Kevin (Greg Rikaart) wouldn’t tell her, Daisy pulled out the “I’m your sister card.” I can’t believe the guilt trip worked on him!
