Ok so over this past weekend twitter went crazy when they read a blind item by Nelson Branco. The speculation began. Many put the pieces together and came to the conclustion that Daniel Goddard was being fired. Well then I started thinking back to Jillian Bowe's Y&R spoilers she posted at the end of 2010 with a sneak peak into 2011. She stated.. One half of a supercouple "dies". Now with Y&R in the last couple of years we have seen a couple characters "die" (Skye, Adam, and Chance). Is the internet overreacting before seeing the storyline? Could Cane really be dying? Or is Daniel Goddard just been fired from Y&R?

I have set back and watched the out pour of support for DG on twitter. I've been surprised because I never knew he was this popular but I guess everyone has there favorites. If you asked me I would have preferred Christel Kahlil been fired before DG but that's just my opinion.

Jamey Giddens made a good point on twitter last night. Don Diamont was a 20 plus year vet on Y&R and the outcry was nothing like I am seeing with DG. Hmmmm and I am willing to put money that Cane isn't any more popular than Brad Carlton. Marinate on that folks.

Cane and Lily are, hands

Cane and Lily are, hands down, the most TIRESOME couple in daytime right now!! They are boring and I don't, nor have I ever seen, any chemistry between them!!! They have never been a supercouple and they never will be. I don't get why the writers put so much effort into a couple that clearly isn't working!!! They act like they HAVE to write for Lily and Cane. I would've preferred for them to have gotten rid of Cane after he was revealed to be an impostor and the REAL Phillip Chancellor returned!!

They just keep writing the same old BULLDONKIE for Cane year in and year out, which proves that they have no real imagination where this character is concerned. He always lies to Lily "to protect her" and ends up getting caught, begging for her to forgive him and she makes him sweat it out for about 5 minutes before taking him back!!

I have given up hope that they will recast Lily. They have some strange sense of loyalty toward Christel. I am sure she's a nice girl and all, but she is not a strong actress. I did believe she was better back when she was acting alongside Victoria Rowell, and I did find her to be strong during certain points of her cancer storyline and when Lily found out that Malcolm was her father, but aside from that, she does nothing for me.

I'd rather see them ride off into the sunset together as they fade to black!!! The writers had the MERCY to get rid of Mac and JT (who were also a mess and not worth the airtime!), so I wish they'd get their ISH together and do it for "Lane" as well!

As far as Daniel getting more airtime/coverage than Don Diamont got when he left, I can't really comment on that b/c I wasn't paying much attention to what was going on in the soap press back then, nor was I doing much soap blogging---but I agree Don deserved much better than to become a popscicle. Daniel Goddard is a good guy and I wish he'd been given a better storyline and a better actress to act alongside.

Oh well.......my rambling is over. Daniel Goddard is a good actor (not to mention easy on the eyes.........) but I won't REALLY miss him and I won't miss his STALE MESS of a character either.

During Christel's first run

During Christel's first run as Lily I think she was more tolerable because Kristoff, Victoria Rowell, Tonya Lee Williams, and Shemar Moore were around and did most of the heavy lifting with the acting. With those four great actors it's really easy to over look Christel's shorting comings when it comes to acting. What's really hurt her now is she's playing 14 year old Lily still when Lily has had MAJOR life events and shouldn't be still played the way she was played when CK first came on. There has been no growth. She's had glimmers of hope but CK just doesn't cut it most of the time. I think the character has outgrown her but I don't know why they don't play to CK's strength's if they want to keep her. Lily needs a rival. I don't want to see her as another victim or as someone's mother. It's boring.

I liked CK when she was first

I liked CK when she was first on, but it was really easy for her 5 years ago. Her storylines were not that difficult, but now she is being given storylines were she is suppose to do the heavy lifting, but she she is failing to deliver. I don't think CK does a good job as a lead actress or the center of the Winter's family. She has not improved her acting ability over the years. They desperately need to recast or change the character's direction by making Lily more bitchy. The writers are trying to make her come across as the nu-Cricket, but with the way CK talks and her mannerism she comes across as some shallow, self-centered, valley-girl. I think she needs to be written more like Brittany.

Who would be Lily's rival? She always comes across as a little child in her "rival" scenes and it is hard to have a conversation with her fans because they can be too passionate at times.

I don't think you can really compare DD's leave to DG's. DG's was leaked through the blind item and it caused a lot of speculation. Didn't they say DD was let go, and end of story? He was also picked up from B&B rather quickly. I also think a lot of people are upset for the reason DG was released. He was released supposedly because of the Lane fan base and I think a lot of people wish that he would stay and they would let go CK.

I know that this is very much

I know that this is very much an anti-CK site. From the runners of the site to the posters the site attracts, or at least the ones that post comments. I understand and accept that but what I do not understand is that the ones that hate her can't seem to accept that there are MANY that love her and Lily and Lane. When confronted with evidence of her and Lane's popularity, you all express bafflement, dismiss the evidence and proceed to continue your bashing and advocate her firing.

CK, Daniel Goddard and lane are EXTREMELY popular with general fans. They are consistently amongst the most popular couples and Actor/actress in the soap mags, even on this site CK is always in the top 5 when they do the hot 100 for the year or whatever they call it. She's near the top when they post monthly results too. Now, just the RUMOR that Daniel has been fired has triggered an out-pouring of support the likes of which some of you say haven't seen before. And still you dismiss her, Daniel and Lanes popularity. Questioning why Y&R doesn't fire CK and being surprise by the size of the response.

If you would put aside your hatred for the actress and the pairing and pay attention to all the signs, you may be able to see that, strong as your feels are against CK, they may not be shared by the majority of the Y&R audience. There has to be a reason CBS begged her to come back when she left and why she still has a job despite what many of you see as poor acting on her part. She's just very popular with the general audience and IS seen by CBS as a legacy character. Much as you may hate it and wish it otherwise.

Listen I don't know CK or DG...my dislike of the pairing has nothing personal to do with them. I don't know them and I'm sure you don't know them either. Yes, I amazed that they are popular and will never understand why they are popular. I could care less about online polls or soap mag polls. That won't change my opinion about Lily, Lane or Cane. I could careless if they are on the show or not. Won't make me none to see DG leave or stay. It isn't like MAB is going to give them a good story.

Debbie-- I have a

Debbie--

I have a subscription to Soap Opera Digest and I see those RIDICULOUS polls. Those polls also say that AMC's Ryan and Greenlee are a "popular" couple, but I have NEVER met a RYLEE fan!! Well, I did meet ONE, but her head didn't appear to be glued on too tight, if you get my drift!! Wink Wink And those Soap Opera Digest polls appear to be RIGGED by soap executives to try to push their agendas/the couples that THEY like down viewers' throats!! I don't believe ANYTHING I see in any poll, online or otherwise.

Bottom line: I respect the fact that you are a Christel Khalil fan and that there are lots of Lily/Cane fans out there, but watching these two on my screen cooing over each other and being all 'lovey-dovey' makes me want to lose my cookies!!

I apologize if you are offended by all of the Christel Khalil criticism, but I don't think you are going to go on ANY soap blogging site without encountering the same kind of comments. Hate to say it.........You are in the MINORITY of people who like Christel and Lily/Cane.

It's always bothered me that

It's always bothered me that Jill remained so close to him after the truth about about Cane and Phillip came out. We saw more bonding between Cane and Jill after the reveal than Jill and Phillip! Lily should have sent Cane packing to Australia back in July '09 and moved on. Instead we had to endure that awful cancer storyline, and now this current dreck (I didn't realize Y&R was a refuge for former Australian soap stars).

I do hope he's out. I don't hate Goddard nor do I take pleasure in him losing a job, but Cane has got to go. They cut corners when they revealed him as the fake Phillip and that didn't sit well with me. Goddard is attractive and a decent-enough actor to find employment on any of the other soaps. Plus, I could see him doing some recurring guest star work in primetime.

The bottom line is, Christel Khalil really should have been fired. Lily should be recast because CK just doesn't cut it. I actually think there's a lot of potential with Cane----what if he and Nina hooked up? Too bad the hacks at Y&R don't have much of an imagination.

Brittany,

I don't know who you are calling stupid, but you sound like a ridiculous little CHILD! This website is for MATURE ADULTS!! Please go back to your sandbox and play with the three year olds until you can learn how to behave/conduct yourself in a respectful manner!!

BTW: Christel Khalil is STILL a weak actress, and all the temper tantrums and pointing fingers won't change that!!!

You think she's a good actress, WE don't. Get over it.

Agreed, Alstonboy!

I remember laughing my ass off when CK's Lily tried to throw David Kimble in Nina's face when she was investigating Cane. Girl, you weren't even alive when that happened! CK's attempt to play tough just came off as totally rude!

Amen, Alstonboy! I agree

Amen, Alstonboy! I agree about Cane. I hope he leaves. His character is expendable and he is not enjoyable. I'm with Alistaircrane; they should have canned him when he was found out almost two years ago. It literally infuriated me when they didn't get rid of him.
I disagree about CK, sort of. I like her as Lily because she has been in the role for so long, but wouldn't mind if they recasted. But, look at Y&R's track record lately when it comes to recasting. They either recast with someone who doesn't look like the previous, established actor (Malcolm, Heather) or they recast with someone who doesn't fit the part (Heather, Mac, etc.)

Nathan~~~ I really am not

Nathan~~~

I really am not INTENTIONALLY trying to be a jerk/a**hole when it comes to Christel Khalil. I hate constantly ragging on her acting skills...or lack thereof, but they insist on shoving this child down my throat, and my gag reflex is just not strong enough for this non-acting little girl!! So sorry. If someone offers me brussel sprouts, I ain't touching them because they aren't my cup of tea!!!!

And this POSTER above comes in here calling people NAMES........in some drive-by character assassination type of BULLCOCKIE, calling people STUPID, so I had to defend OUR right to dislike whoever the hell we want to dislike!!

BTW: I was speaking for ALL of us.....Alistair Crane, Smitty, you and myself!!

I guess not all DC posters are created equal. Some of us have class and maturity, and some of us don't!!!!! What can you do???? (shrugs shoulders!)

Alstonboy, I don't blame you. I remember one time I posted, I believe on this site, that I wished that Daniel would leave Days and someone got all smart-alecky with me. It's just a freakin' soap! Smile
The writer on every soaps are insistent about shoving the same freakin' characters down our throats, and it's really annoying. If they're going to focus on the same 6 or 7 characters, then why the h*ll don't they just get rid of everyone else? They're always whining about saving money anyway!

Alstonboy, I'm not suggesting

Alstonboy,
I'm not suggesting that you are not entitled to your opinion about CK, DG or Lily/Cane. I realize not everyone is going to share my opinion, I know there are people who hate them. What bothers me is when people assume that because they feel a certain way, that opinion is shared by everyone else and completely ignore any evidence to the contrary.

Once again someone in this thread dismissed the results of Mag polls as not meaning anything because they show Lane as popular. But these mag polls aren't the only evidence, it's ALL the mags, it's this very site, it's the fact that the last time Y&R got a rating over 4.0 was the week/day of their reunion in 2009, it's the fact that the writers and TPTB acknowledge that they are very popular even though they apparently hate it(I assume they have access to evidence that the general public isn't privy to).

What also bothers me the Intensity of the hatred heaped on CK. There is nothing wrong with disliking an actor and stating that. But the intensity of the attacks on CK and the vitriol in them give me pause. There are several poor actors on Y&R who get TONS more storyline and airtime than her 4 or 5 times a month appearances, yet there is not nearly the amount of venom directed at them that is directed at CK.

I've seen some seriously awful posts about CK on this and other sites that have nothing to do with her acting and it makes me suspect that most of the objection to her have little to do with her acting ability at all.

Debbie-- I can understand

Debbie--

I can understand your position. But I personally have never insulted any other aspect of Christel other than her acting ability. I am fully aware that she is often criticized for "not being black enough" or for being a "Valley Girl." I have even seen people on other soap blogging sites call her ugly or pick apart her facial features.

Don't get me wrong. I am adamantly against that sort of disrespect!!! An actor should never be insulted or picked apart for aspects of their personality that they have no control over. And it also kinda irks me when people refer to her as a "white girl."

An African American should NEVER be persecuted for being well-spoken or for having good diction. We should ALL strive to speak well.

So I can certainly agree with you there.........

I sort of disagree. I think

I sort of disagree. I think it is okay to criticize the way an actor talks if it impacts the role. By that I am not saying Lily needs to talk "black" because she is AA. Lily is suppose to be this selfless character who is very humble and perfect. However, the way CK delivers her lines she comes across very self-centered. For example, Lily said once "I think I look beautiful". She stressed and exaggerated the word "I" and it made the character came across as narcissistic. That is why I think she would be better suited playing a more devilish/ Brittany-esque character. I have never heard anyone criticize CK looks.

However, my problem with CK goes beyond the way she talks and combined with the direction of the character. I think she is just blah. To me, her acting is not up to par with others on the show. Her cancer storyline is a prime example of that.

The most "boring" super couple(*cough* if you can call them that) ever! Plain and simple! I have seen better super couples....Patch/Kayla, Greg/Jennifer, Bo/Hope, Shane/Kimberly, Nina/Cliff

I think the only reason everyone is crying over the blues about DG, it was leaked that "cried and begged" for his job. It tugs on people's sympathy. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the actor. It's their characters I hate!
You can't even compare DG to DD! No one had a chance to mourn DD. Bill Bell was smart enough to snatch him up quickly and gave him a job.

I haven't seen any improvements with CK's acting. It is right up there with NuKyle acting style.

I think DG is fantastic and if he really is leaving the show, another show is going to snap him up so fast and hopefully give him a more interesting character. I met him recently at a soap event and he was the nicest of all of the CBS stars. A genuinely sweet person.

I don't believe for a second that DG cried and begged for his job. Whoever started that rumor should be ashamed.

As for wanting to get rid of DG or CK, I have never understood why people want characters to leave just because they don't like them when there are plenty of other characters to watch. I hope the characters you love never get the boot because if DG leaves I am done with this show. I have a feeling all of you will be feeling my pain when this show is gone because I truly believe all soaps will be gone in a few years.

I like Cane and always have

I like Cane and always have even when his storylines weren't all there for me

...as for Lily and Cane they are married on the show...I don't dislike them however, I liked Daveeta's Lily and never cared for how Kahlil portrayed her. She has never convinced me of being the daughter of Druscilla...I think she portrays her character extremely immature sort of Harriet (Ozzie Harriet) but I don't hate her or want her off the show....

I think she just need more depth to her acting a coach comes to mind. This giddy valley girl teenage persona isn't riveting to me. I like their storyline especially since Tristan is there as Colin its one of the ones I'm most interested in so I hope Daniel stays...He rocked the scene against Sophia Dupree asking her not to reveal his secret...for me I actually watched it twice.

I don't like "blind" items I rather wait until they see the light of day...too much speculation and jumping the gun...if you can't tell me who it is I'm not trying to figure it out clue wasn't my favorite game.

I would have been fine with both CK and DG leaving since Lane is the most boring couple I've ever seen. But at least Cane had possibilities elsewhere. I could have seen him with Sharon or Phyllis since I heard DG said something about wanting to work with MS. But actors lose their jobs all the time and many of them were on Y&R for many more years and loved by generations of fans (JD as John Abbott, DD as Brad, Cassie etc.). I wish DG well if it's true and I'm sure he'll get picked up by another soap. I definitely won't miss Lane or Cane lying every two seconds.

I'm most certainly not a Lane fan, but this news, if true, makes me sad.  I could not STAND to see Lily whining and being petted through yet another crisis.  As a woman, it's hard to imagine this young woman being widowed with twins.  I like DG, think he's a great actor who just needs a real storyline where he's kind of a bad boy instead of this conflicted, secretive sap used to pimp Lily.  I'd prefer Cane over her any day.

I agree with alstonboy. It is

Crown I agree with alstonboy. It is unlikely that Ryleee have a huge fan base. Both are quite tired characters. Greenlee was much better when she was on GL. And help the Lan couple. CK should have been gone so long age. Why would you keep a child like actress to play ab adults. Actors are switched all the time from teenagers to adults. CK can play a much younger person much better. She is no Abby who could play a teen on GL and come to Y&R as an older person and we can see her growing up. Anyone CK acts with the other actor always has to carry the scene mostly. And she should have at least gotten better in so many years. Don't stya there until you're as old as Nikki and still can't act.

I agree that Jill has stayed

I agree that Jill has stayed too close to Cane and much closer to Can that to Billy - her real son.. I also have not liked that fact that they never mention that way Jill was not a good mother to either son - Philip or Billy. Both were sent away to school. Philip was so sad and depressed that he left school and came to live with Kay. He stayed hidden in the house for a long time and Kay legally adopted Philip. The writer have ignored this fact. Jill was always much too busy running behind some man's pants.

Having seen tomorrow's US episode today in Canada, I'm pretty sure Cane and Blake made a pact to fake Cane's death after Blake got word that Colin plans to screw him over.

The ending was over-the-top and NOT in a good way because Y&R and the powers that be take the show and themselves WAY too seriously. The babies falling, the opera music---stupid, dumb, lame!! I did like the blood, though. I've been a fan of "daytime violence" since the coronation massacre on Days in '01.

Also, I think my theory is wrong and Cane is dead because Blake broke his neck and died. I think they will pull Cane's twin out of the bag. Lame!!!

Y&R does take itself way too seriously. This show would be so much better if there was more humor involved. The ending of that show was stolen from some movie. It looked familiar. MAB should get in trouble for violating copyright law. She "borrows" half her crap.

My question is, why did they bring on Blake? He really wasn't needed. His character had potential outside of the Lane orbit. And has it been officially announced if DG is let go? I thought they usually tell ahead of time.

I loved the ending. It was

I loved the ending. It was the most interesting that I've ever seen those two. I like the opera music (felt like that stole that from a popular GH shoot out from a few years ago) and I thought the babies going down the stairs was a good touch because I was wondering what corny ass trick they would pull out to keep the kids from going squat in the streak.

We all have the things that bug us. I can deal with blood on TV but not folks even talking about puke. Yuck!

I've seen the word "dies" and "tragedy" in quotation marks on this too which makes me think Y&R is going for another fake death.

I'll be curious about how Cane's note to Lily that blew away plays into the bigger plot.

Alistair, you shut your hatin ass up! Y&R is true to form and the best daytime has to offer. The ending of yesterday's broadcast was not perfect, but it was a watercooler moment that has us all buzzing. Whether you enjoyed Cane's shooting or not, it still has you talking.

Just because it has you

Just because it has you talking does not make it good. If aliens landed in GC and decided to perform tests on Victor Newman, it would get everyone talking, but I am pretty sure it would suck. And Y&R is not the best daytime has to offer anymore. Heck, B&B is a better soap now.

However, if you enjoyed I guess I am glad someone got something enjoyable from it. So agree to disagree.

In the words of Jeanne

In the words of Jeanne Cooper, "Y&R is the lousiest...sets, actors, directors, writers...but we're still number #1 guys." Take that and we can agree to disagree. B&B is classic camp trash unlike the refined Y&R. I like both soaps, but just am loyal to my show. I'm sorry I get so passionate it's just that I love the residents of Genoa City and have really enjoyed this week. I've even gotten coworkers who HATE soaps tuning in. Isn't that really what daytime is all about? I mean, without viewers and numbers, we lose our soaps and who wants that?

I would rather they keep DG

I would rather they keep DG than CK, CK is at best an immature actress, btw she is multiracial so I hear. She is not African American, she is reportly, Pakistan/Black. Her facial features and hair are closer to that of a Pakistian than of African American. Apparently she is a Cali girl as her speech patterns and hand gestures seem to tag her. In most scenes she comes over as shallow and self absorbed. In my opinion, the way the character is written she could be anyone's kid on the show, not one of African American. In which I might add the only 100% African American's on the show are Julia Pace Mitchell and Darius McCrary. All the others are of multicultral descent. Whether or not if CK is Black enough is not the issue the issue is the she has not grown as an actress she isn't half as talented as new comer to the show Marcy Rylan. Whom in my opinon acts circles around CK. Ck is very pretty but pretty is not all we want in a Lily character, we expect half Neil and half Dru. Someone with spunk and someone who is on the side of right. Maybe a person who struggles with that and has agnst. As she is written and is acted is a disgrace to us and we as fans of the show have tolerated this poor writing and lazy acting on CK's part. And the final nail in the coffin to me was her nasty real life remarks about Victoria Rowell. After her interview with DC and her mean spirited comments I utilized my rights and started leaving the room whenever she appears. If you don't like someone its ok but by all means be professional and keep them to yourself. Yes, she has the right to say what she pleases but just because we have these rights doesn't mean we should always verbalize them to others. So write her off or keep her just know my right is to fast forward or leave the room and not watch her. I normally read everyone's comments and keep my opinion to myself but CK is not worthy of any fan mail for or against her. She probably needs to go back to the Disney Channel and gain some acting experience. Just sayin........

Take that and we can agree to disagree. B&B is classic camp trash unlike the refined Y&R.

Don't you dare mock my B&B, lol. Brad Bell could whoop MAB in the writing department any day. I think Y&R needs a little camp. It use to have some and that helps, IMO. Y&R is anything, but refined. Ask Devon and Tyra if you want proof. And being #1 means squat, IMO. People watch it out of habit and they aren't getting any new viewers. Y&R has a lot of old viewers.

CK should get a job on the Disney Channel. I think she would do well there. The actress who plays Colleen went there.

Well she may have went to Disney then but right now Lyndsy Fonseca is a lead on the hit CW show "Nikita." Kicking ass and taking names in fact Thad Luckingbill (JT)just had a guest spot recently and they still have the magic...1.27.11 "Free"

I think Dyllan meant Tammin

I think Dyllan meant Tammin Sursok going to Pretty Little Liars, which is actually ABC Family (don't let the "Family" part scare you---PLL is pretty dark and edgy compared to your typical teen soaps).

Tammin is playing a gloriously campy evil blind bitch. The other day, she had her sunglasses on and cane in hand and was standing in front of a tri-fold mirror trying on clothes...later when the stepbrother she's lusting after stood up to her, she purred, "I see....". Love her!! Laughing out loud

Tammin Sursok is the one who played Colleen when she was killed off. The original Colleen is on Nikita, and the second/middle Colleen is back on General Hospital.

I am terriably saddened to

I am terriably saddened to hear that Daniel Goddard has been let go from The Young and the Restless. The actor has such a great chemistry with actress Christel Khalil as the beautiful couple Cane & Lily. I am hoping the writers realize what a loss to the show this move is and it will be rectified. I am a romantic at heart and this is the most romntic couple I have watched on soaps in a very long time. Why ruin such a beautiful thing?
