Jeff Branson OUT Again at Young and Restless?!





Jeff Branson has had more stints on The Young and the Restless than Sharon Newman in the funny farm. According to Soap Opera Uncensored, the actor's latest visit as Detective Ronan Malloy has come to an end.

Bummer. I think Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Ronan are smoking hot. However, I don't mind Red being back in Ol' Smilin' Jack's (Peter Bergman) orbit. Will you miss Ronan in Genoa City? Sound off in the comments!

@truthtakestime2000: Nina is already back on the show! She was on today's episode when she confronted Paul about his relationship with Christine!

Never took to Ronan. Poorly developed character. I liked the character last week when he went to Phyllis' penthouse drunk with pizza. LOL. That was the only time I liked the character. So long!

I liked him until they made him a dirty cup. No going back on that one.

I've always liked the pairing with Phyllis. If he really is being written out I have to suggest then what was the point of the bullying storyline since Summer supposedly was lashing out against him.

Josh seems to be having some kinks in his writing that I hope he irons out soon.

Nina's return did seem to signal a possible exit for Paul and Christine which I would ALSO be against. This is the MAB syndrome of starting and stopping story or not seeing it through to its potential. Sigh....

Daisy? Shadowy woman? Samantha story? WTF?

Still don't get the appeal of Ronan; especially paired with Phyllis.

But ... should he leave town again who's going to be around to run that venerable (I mean hapless) Genoa City Police Force?

Won't miss him. I hope he finally stays gone.

I liked him with Phyllis in the very beginning but he has become too obsessed with her. Bye bye Ronan.

I think it's necessary for the Ronan to be gone in order to further the character of Cane. Cane's background has become like John Black's; too muddled by a variety of different writers. Ronan, Chance, and Genevieve all served to remind the audience of Cane's scheme, and he can't become a hero as long as there are all of these reminders about how he used to be a con.

Love I am so upset that Jeff Branson is going again from Y&R,I really like him and loved him with Phyllis. I never liked her with Jack yuck!!

I liked Ronan with Phyllis. Actually, a Phyllis/Ronan/Jack triangle would have been good. As long as Nick doesnt get involved, Im ok with it. Phyllis and Nick are over.

I actually liked Ronan and Phyllis(though I still think ultimately she belongs with Jack). Still, with Ronan off the canvas, not to mention Paul and Cricket getting back together, I fear Nina's already-fleeting appearances will now come to a grinding halt.

With every return, the character has become more & more a waste of space imo. I like JB alot & I think at one point Ronan had potential & purpose, but now...not so much, if at all. I honestly don't think tptb, past or present, know what to do with him. Funny thing is I don't think he is as difficult of a character to write for as tptb seem to find him.

The character has thirty years of history that we have not seen. Perhaps, if they explored some of that, he would develop a fan base and they would find it worthwhile to keep him around.

I hope he stays gone. His character got ruined once he got stuck in Phyllis's orbit.

Well since NONE of you want him, I'll gladly take him off of your hands!!

He can be MY trophy husband!!

Why, Detective Nikki Newman will be running the GCPD!!

I like Jeff, but Ronan was very ill-conceived, so I'm not sorry to see him go. I'm sure he'll turn up again somewhere. He is a good actor, just a poorly written character.

That pretty much sums up most characters created under the MAB regime - ill-conceived and poorly written. Perhaps Jill and Josh felt this character wasn't worth trying to keep in the GC landscape. I wonder how this will affect the cyber-bullying storyline and if his exit is storyline-dictated?

I wish they would have kept him with Chloe. I think the end of that sl ruined his character and hers. She has great friendship chemistry with Kevin, but their marriage is boring. And I hate Ronan and Phyllis.

Also, they should focus more on his relationship, or lack thereof, with Nina.

Can we keep Ronan and get rid of Phyllis?

I would want Ronan to stay but he, like everyone else, has fallen at the feet to the all mighty Phyllis. Just like Nick and everyone else, its Phyllis' rules. I just dont see why Ronan would want to put up with all of Phyllis' crap.

Good riddance to the bad cop. MAB ruined him by making him a near-stalker of Phyllis.

I don't think Ronan is a bad cop in the strict sense of the term. He's just a bit misguided due to misplaced loyalties and lust.

I'm so sorry to see that the suspicions of Ronan being on his way have been borne out, but once Nina said her goodbyes, I knew this was next. I am in full agreement with SoapArmageddon -- I think there is such rich story here and have not been able to wrap my head around why the writers never ran with this when they had Nina and Christine back on the canvas. The Billy/Lucy story provided an easy pathway in, and then it seemed that they simply forgot they introduced any of it. Note to Josh Griffiths: Put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play! Wink And TraceyAbbott101, I accept your challenge to duel! Smile
