Hmmm... When I first heard

Hmmm...

When I first heard about this, I was excited just for the shock of it all. Then I was excited because this could probably drive some major story and drama into the show. Then I was excited because the set DID need some updating.

THEN, I became worried. I don't know if this signifies the plans for the new regime, but I honestly think Y&R has bigger fish to fry other than the sets. Lets work on STORY first. Work on getting the show back on the right track, and THEN fix the way it looks/sounds. I personally don't mind the Newman set the way it is. I don't mind any of the sets because I don't find it unbelievable that the house is still structured the same. I just hope JFP doesn't go around blowing up all the sets so we can have newer, smaller, less lavish, less glamorous sets made out of old textbooks and glue sticks. O_O But I must admit, GH did look good under her watch, even if the show was unwatchable for me. As did Guiding Light...

It just makes me wonder...how much of the budget will be spent demolishing old sets and getting NEW ones....things that make you go hmmm

This is a ridiculous thing to do and A LOT of fans, especially those who don't pay attention to sites like this, will NOT be happy. Who wrote this?

I thought we already knew this? Smile

However - apparently there's more. Someone will die in that fire.

Rumours are floating around it is either Abby or Chelsea's unborn baby.

They had better not kill off

They had better not kill off Abby. Big mistake.

And really? Another baby death...? Not a great start to the "new vision" for Y and R.

I would have had lily in that fire. Have her go down and come back with a new face and actress. Then you could have someone with some fire!

I still think that Gen and Jack made a good couple, but then they were pulled apart with that stupid story of her wanting Beauty of Nature. More potential wasted...

I'm with you Yoryla.

^^ lol Tracey!

pferrando, Thanks Smile I know you're with me on this one. Fortunately, I don't think it's gonna be Genevieve. I heard certain rumours that is "a Newman"....I'm kinda thinking it's either Abby or Chelsea's baby.

Frankly, I don't think anyone should die.

If it's Abby, I'm gonna be

If it's Abby, I'm gonna be PISSED!!!!! Abby is a Newman and an Abbott. JFP and JG made a huge mistake letting Marcy Rylan go. They could have had Abby do so much on this show what with her being from two of the most prominent core families on Y&R. Should Abby be killed off, there's no way to bring her back on to the show. Are they going to do a really fast recast of Ashley and bring her back for Abby's funeral/memorial service and then have her disappear to NY again?

Having it be Chelsea's baby would be an interesting twist. Chelsea is in a spot on the ranch in which she cannot get out and starts getting panicky, which then makes her double over in pain and she ends up losing her and Adam's kid. At that point (if we're all thinking that Sharon or an escaped from Fairview cray cray PattyCakes lit the fuse to burn the ranch down), Adam will NEVER forget or forgive what Sharon did to Chelsea and the child he wanted so badly. This is where Adam starts heading back to that gray area between good and bad and takes his revenge out on Sharon and the rest of the Newman clan.

Either way, I don't like that it's going to be another Newman that dies on this show.

I wish it was, oh, Kyle perhaps! Blake Hood cannot act. This would give Peter Bergman (Jack) some excellent material to sink his teeth into.

However, if this burning down of the ranch will propel some really good storytelling by JG and if he does it right, we could end up with a damn good storyline out of this. Also, reports are that Victor will be completely broke. Jack will also finally best Victor this time around.

Don't kill Kyle off!! First

Don't kill Kyle off!! First it was Tracy's child Colleen, Jack doesn't have any other children on the show and the ABBOTT FAMILY is already dying out! I personally don't think JFP & JG is that stupid to kill off Abby to start their tenure out because that would have immediate backlash from fans.

I to think as ChristianDavis148 about Adam, that makes perfect sense Chelsea will be hurt and lose the baby, this sets off Adam again. First, off nobody contacted him about Victor being alive and that hurt Adam, Nikki saw it on Adam's face. Second, he will blame Victor. During this where this story will be different is NIKKI. I think Nikki is going to be the one to reach out to Adam and Victor. Nikki could become more maternal towards Adam because she too miscarried by an accident, she will relate to Adam's grief.

I think it should be Sharon to go over the edge and torch the ranch! But crazy-ass Patty-cakes is back so...I can't stand this character...ENOUGH! Angry Angry

There were way too many

There were way too many deaths under the previous two regimes. I hope JFP doesn't go that route. This is not General Hospital.

JFP is known for making her shows look good, so it's to be expected that she would tinker with the sets, although I really see no need for it. Y&R is still the best-looking soap there is.

JFP though loves to kill off

JFP though loves to kill off beloved core characters. So I would say since we KNOW that Abbey is leaving, it very well could be her dying in the fire. It could be worse though. If this show were like other shows she has been on, it would be MTS going!

This is not a shock.

And this show needs to be redecorated. Victor Newman is supposed to be one of the richest man in the world. Why would he live at a house that looks like Grandma's old shack. It's 2012 - and with HD and everything the Newman Ranch is hard to pull off as the home of a billionaire.

It is too bad Christel Khalile is staying on the show. It would be nice if Lily were to die in the fire.

@Soapking1965 that funny as

@Soapking1965 that funny as hell! Oh I love your comment, and I couldn't agree with you more! @ChristianDavis148 I agree I hope my girl Abby isn't the firebug.

Do you guys remember almost 10 years ago when Kevin Fisher burned down Gina's with the fire and put Colleen in the meat locker and she almost froze to death. Oh boy Jill Farren has me a little nervous.

Where Nikki and Victor going to leave at? The Newman Ranch is a staple on that show. They've been in Ranch since the 80s. Katherine once owned that Ranch and gave it to Victor or he bought it from Kay. Not sure on the last tip... Whatever happened to Victor's penhouse?

Sharon starts the fire so if

Sharon starts the fire so if someone dies in this mess than NO MATTER how much they claim she was a stressed out mess, it will not bode well for the character. I am all for killing off characters and giving us some drama but the only story that works in this case on this show was the death of Brad in the lake. Colleen's was a major mistake since Victor only gets stronger (he beat up 3 long shoremen with a bad ticker that he wasn't taking his meds for) and only gets grumpier and meaner every episode.

If Abby dies, that will be the dumbest thing to happen. It's doubtful, as well, because Ashley wouldn't be there and there is ABSOLUTELY no way they could write it in. I am going to say it will be Carmine and after his death Abby opts to leave to be with her mother.

pjc722...AMEN SISTER! ITA...MAB total destruction of the character of Sharon. It was so wrong to kill off the Carltons. Colleen was TRACI'S only child. I think you are right about Abby. The Abbotts are bare boned now and I just don't believe JFP & JG would want to start their first story ...killing off Abbott\Newman heir! The phones would light up at CBS! I know it would be me screaming and bugging the shit out of them AGAIN! Wink

It will not be Carmine. It is going to be a Newman that dies. Many are speculating that Adam and Chelsea will lose their baby.

I'm ok if Adam & Chelsea

I'm ok if Adam & Chelsea loses the baby. 1. Adam will blame Victor which will set up the vengeful side of Adam again without the horrific writing of MAB. But with Josh hopeful it will be more balanced, not just a dark side but all sides of Adam...it could be smart now in keeping Chelsea. She will keep Adam grounded but with MCE she can deliver a good story of her own. Maybe with Victoria & Billy...wanting visitation? Personally, this is the way to go for the team.

For all I care, the following

For all I care, the following characters should die in the Newman Ranch fire:

Kyle Abbott
Avery Clark
Chelsea Newman
Abby Carlton Newman
Ronan Malloy

This SORAS'ed Kyle really bites - he's horrible!! Either un-SORAS him or kill him off!

Avery is annoying and doesn't add anything to the show - bite it, honey!

Sorry Chelsea, but I hope when you lose your baby that you also draw your terminal breath...!!

The SORAS'ed Abby is shrill, egotistical and just unappealing - BURN, BABY BURN!!

Ronan, you could have and should have been written as a legacy character but Maria Arena Bell totally destroyed you - ENJOY THE HEAT!!

Burn Nicole Reed, Burn. Kill

Burn Nicole Reed, Burn. Kill he off. Get her off of her high horse, and 'do her in'. Ol miss High and Mighty needs to go. What use does she serve? She is not a real person anyway. She is simply a Dynasty-like creation, with the big hair, acting like Alexis Colby, forgetting she got her start on the strip pole. A diva, pure and simple, boo.

People who need to go:
Nicole Reed
Daniel Romalotti
Danny Romalotti ("I'll save you son, oops I tripped")
Cricket Blair ("I'll save you Daniel and Danny, oops I tripped, too")
Tucker McCall ("My hairs on FIRE!)

Reading through the above

Reading through the above comments, I agree with the comment that NO ONE really should die. I remember it used to be a big deal when any character died on Bill Bell's Y and R back in the day. It was used very sparingly. The most logical would be for something to happen to the baby (although I hate baby deaths) because that would change the direction of Adam.

I'm already unhappy about a torched ranch, so whatever the outcome, I probably won't like it anyway.
