Whether you are a crazy woman on the loose firing 3 bullets into the heart of a Genoa City villain, a woman admitted to a loony bin and giving birth to a child at the same time, or an Abbott family member on life support, The Young and the Restless has had it all over the last month. Ratings might not be proving favorable for Y&R, but the writing quality, and the acting, is outstanding. If you had to ask me who I thought deserved the chocolates, I'd have two words - Beth Maitland portraying Traci Abbott.
Victor Newman may have taken 3 stray bullets to the heart, but Traci's mourning and angst over whether to terminate her own child's life support has been second to none. Y&R has brought characters like this back, such as Tricia Cast playing Nina, but Traci really brought it this last month. Paying tribute to the stalwart, this flashback video takes us back to when Traci returns to Genoa City to say goodbye to her father John. It just seems to be how things are rolling for poor Traci, first John, then discovering Brad was dead and now her only daughter Colleen. Here we get to see Katherine, Jill and then the Abbotts coming together for John on his death bed. Nobody does it better than The Young and the Restless.
