Suspects: Victor Nikki Victoria Nicholas Adam Abby Ashley Tucker Jack Phyllis More realistic (off-screen) candidates: Patty Williams Skye Lockhart Kyle Abbott Andy Richards (anything is possible—it would be a “nod to history”) July 30, 2011 at 1:19 am #2078435 shoegal 16 Posts I haven’t seen the episode so I only comment hypothetically but it would be interesting for her to have been accidently killed by her son. Kyle overhearing the lies she’s been telling actually thinks that she’s gonna move him away from his father. July 30, 2011 at 1:28 am #2078437 evelan 5 Posts Not Kyle, possibly Patty or Skye, more disposable as characters. I really think that Skye will return just to save Sharon from prison though, not to murder Dianne. Could be crazy Sheila (lol, not really). July 30, 2011 at 1:30 am #2078434 alstonboy4315 853 Posts I can’t wait to see it. I keep checking YouTube. I think it’s going to end up being someone completely random like Patty or Skye. I can’t see any well-known character SERIOUSLY killing her. They spent the past week trying TOO hard to “set up all the suspects.” A lot of the foreshadowing that was done seemed unnatural and forced. But I can do my happy dance now: Diane is gone!!! Now if someone could get rid of SyPhyllis, I would be even happier!!! July 30, 2011 at 1:34 am #2078438 Dyllan 222 Posts My guess is Avery. She could be Matt Clark’s sister and I bet Diane will have the memory disk on her. She probably killed Diane over the memory disk that would set Sharon free. My top three candidates for who killed Diane: Skye, Patty, or Avery. July 30, 2011 at 2:31 am #2078452 wiggum 72 Posts [quote=AlistairCrane]Diane was just murdered on today’s Canadian episode of Y&R. [/quote] 1. I’ve always wondered why they are a day ahead in Canada, Does anyone know? 2. How was she murdered? On screen do you see it?(not that it matters to MAB. We all know she’s really not dead) 3. Thanks July 30, 2011 at 4:25 am #2078464 Anonymous 2898 Posts 1. I believe Y&R airs a day ahead so Canadians will watch it on the Canadian network and not the CBS broadcast. Don’t quote me on that, though. 2. Diane’s murder is not shown. The last scene is Diane’s lifeless body floating in the creek under the bridge (yep, that damn bridge again!). Prior to that, we see all the suspects seemingly getting back from doing…something…all looking highly suspicious and shaken up. Also, there is this weird pretentious thing they’ve done where pillows in Diane’s room have phrases sewn on them that correspond with the suspects. 3. You’re welcome. July 30, 2011 at 4:28 am #2078466 Anonymous 2898 Posts Kyle could kill Diane and get away with it because he’s a minor. It would be fitting (and coming full circle) for Patty to kill Diane since Diane’s the one who caused Patty’s descent into madness. I’d love for Phyllis to have killed Diane and go to jail and leave the show, but that will never happen. I like how they are trying to make Nikki look like a suspect by having disappeared from rehab even though she hasn’t appeared in almost two months. I’ll rule out Avery because she’s a new contract character and there’s been no inkling of her having anything to do with Diane. Out of all the suspects, Victoria seems the weakest and least likely. That being said, I don’t think any of the ten main suspects did it. Skye and Patty are easy scapegoats, but Kyle would be the most interesting, especially if he returns as a slightly older teen all disturbed and stuff from killing his mom. July 30, 2011 at 4:30 am #2078467 alstonboy4315 853 Posts God, the shots of those pillows were weird, not to mention stupid. Another example of Hackarena Bell taking herself too seriously and taking large swigs of her mind-numbing Kool-Aid. But that last shot of Diane in the pool was VERY cryptic and very creepy!!! I will give them props for that. They gave me goosebumps.

She comes to town the the same time Diane dies. Plus, it will make her expendable, and that’s the type of character who murders people. It won’t be anyone interesting. Plus, they reminded us of Matt Clark not to long ago. sPhyllis is my girl and kicks azz. Amelia Henuious sucks. She’s lifeless unless BM is her prop. On today’s Y&R, it showed why Villy is such a one-sided relationship. And who would buy lame azz Victoria as a suspect? There is no reason why she is in this storyline. What, did Diane choke on AH’s hair? July 30, 2011 at 4:53 am #2078469 Anonymous 2898 Posts LOL Victoria has an octopus on her head and its tentacles pulled Diane into the water! Alstonboy, totally agree about the pillows. It’s like the opera music when Cane died. GMAFB! I don’t think Avery is related to Matt Clark. They reminded us of Matt but Sharon didn’t mention his last name–it was only mentioned briefly in a flashback by Nikki. I don’t think there is a connection. And I’m still convinced she’ll have nothing to do with this storyline. If anything, she’s going to turn out to be Sharon’s long-lost sister. A bitter Andy Richards as Diane’s killer makes more sense. July 30, 2011 at 6:38 am #2078481 Nathang1983 70 Posts What about Deacon as the murderer? He would be expendable, possibly. July 30, 2011 at 2:08 pm #2078498 al0792 22 Posts HI can someone tell me who Matt Clark is. the name sounds familiar but I can’t remmeber him on the show. . And I agree it would make for an interesting turn if Kyle accidently killed her as he never left GC and saw his mothers actions and confronted her and he pushed her and she hit her head. July 30, 2011 at 4:05 pm #2078509 Anonymous 2898 Posts Matt Clark was part of Nick and Sharon’s high school crew. He raped Sharon and was later shot. Nick was blamed for the shooting but it turned out to be their friend Amy. Later, Matt Clark returned with plastic surgery and a new identity to put the screws to Nick and Sharon. For reasons I can’t quite recall, Matt ended up in the hospital on life support. When Nick came to his hospital bed, Matt ripped out his ventilator, put it in Nick’s hand, and died. Nick was blamed for his death.

Her husband Linden Ashby also appears as the father to another one of the main kids. This series films in Georgia just like The Vampire Diaries, where Susan again plays the mother to one of the main kids. July 30, 2011 at 6:40 pm #2078519 Restless Vixen 15 Posts I don’t quite understand why Skye would be a suspect in Diane’e murder. First, we don’t even know Skye is alive (I know, don’t laugh). Second, why would she kill Diane? Skye may have been a schemer, but she tends to do so when there’s something in it for her. I see no gain for Skye in killing Diane. Plus I just don’t get “killer” from Skye. I think Avery Clark makes even less sense. Matt had no beef with Diane (I don’t even think he knew her), and Diane does not have the Sharon memory card. I don’t even think Diane knew Adam had it. Plus, even if she did, how would Matt’s little sister (if that’s who she even is) have a clue Diane had it or even knew about it? Kyle could be a very interesting possibility. It would be even better than when a young Rick Forrester shot Grant on B&B. But a lot more creepy. The kid who plays Smyle already creeps me out because he comes off as a little too happy, like he’s on the verge of becoming a murderous psychopath under all that Smiley. If it were Kyle, would Jack throw himself under the bus for his kid (like Ridge did for Rick on B&B). My money is on Patty! July 30, 2011 at 6:43 pm #2078523 bnt83 21 Posts If pattys the killer then I guess thats who Adam was probably talking to on the phone the other day. It makes since considering he used her as his puppet when she was in town. I thought this was going to be a faked death, kind of like when Skye was “murdered” and the only thing found was her blood in the hotel room. Now that her body has been found Im hoping there wont be a resurrection by an identical twin. July 30, 2011 at 7:11 pm #2078527 evelan 5 Posts Just a thought, everyone that was summoned to the bridge gave her a piece of their mind regarding her past misbehaviors and as they are doing that they surround her to the where she slips off the bank of the creek and she hits her head and dies. That’s why they are all edgy when they get back. Thus they are all responsible for her accident but no one is guilty, so to speak. A little like “The Orient Express”. I know it’s out there but the plots sometimes are out there. July 30, 2011 at 8:58 pm #2078546 Scout 38 Posts “A lot of the foreshadowing that was done seemed unnatural and forced.” EVERYTHING on this damned show is unnatural and forced. It is a huge pile of dung that smells worse every day. July 30, 2011 at 9:37 pm #2078552 Kydety 1 Posts Hi there i can answer that question for you about being a day ahead in Canada. When you celebrate your Thanksgiving in November you may get a special Thanksgiving episode , we just have the regular episode , Christmas and New years would be the only time that it would not run an episode should it land on a week day , even during the march madness you may get pre empted on the thursday or the friday , we dont . Hope this helps. July 30, 2011 at 9:47 pm #2078554 alstonboy4315 853 Posts Scout– I agree that Y&R has a lot of DUNG to sift through, but I personally enjoyed Monday’s episode more than I have enjoyed an episode on Y&R in……GOD knows how long. I simply wish every episode could be that good!! July 30, 2011 at 10:45 pm #2078557 Anonymous 2898 Posts As for the off-screen possible suspects, I think we can easily take Kyle off of there. He loves his Mother too much to do that to her. Andy Richards?! Heck no. I’m placing my money on Skye or Patty.

And even though we don’t know Skye is alive, we “know” she’s alive because that’s how Sharon will be saved. Since Skye also probably killed Richard Hightower, I wouldn’t put it past her to kill again.

But Jack wouldn’t need to save Kyle–Kyle is only about 11 (even though he should be the same age as Abby, but whatever), so obviously he wouldn’t go to jail if he killed Diane.

He always talked down to her. I think it was Skye since Adam was fuming over Sharon when he called her (and Patty has nothing to do with Sharon). July 31, 2011 at 2:13 am #2078566 al0792 22 Posts I am now putting all my eggs in a basket and saying it was kyle. changing the subject. have they cast Paul’s son yet? July 31, 2011 at 3:35 am #2078576 Nathang1983 70 Posts I’m thinking maybe it was Kyle too. After watching Jack talk to Kyle on the phone, I don’t think Kyle ever mentioned where he was in Switzerland or wherever. It might be Skye though too. I could see that happening since Adam called up someone to set a plan in motion. It’s all very confusing and annoying.

They are a great couple and the best couple on this silly show. July 31, 2011 at 4:51 am #2078587 Anonymous 2898 Posts I’m thinking Diane will actually stay dead, but that’s a shame because I don’t like the idea of Maura West taking Alex Donnelly’s character with her. Oh well—even bringing back the original Diane wouldn’t undo all the damage the writers did to her this time around. I don’t think anyone can salvage this character now. July 31, 2011 at 4:55 am #2078589 Dyllan 222 Posts Paul and Nina suck donkey balls as a couple. Split them up and pair them with different people. Paul would be great with Ashley or Brooke from B&B. Nina can go with Tucker or Jack. They are a dud and one of the worst couples on Y&R, IMO. July 31, 2011 at 4:57 am #2078590 Anonymous 2898 Posts You’re despicable. Paul and Nina have chemistry and history and are cute together. You must really hate Nina to wish her on a jackass like Tucker or Jack. Anyway, stop derailing this thread. It’s about Diane and her murder. Kyle and Jack on the phone before Diane’s murder reminds me of John being on the phone with Marlena right before Jack’s murder on Days. Back then, that phone call set off a red flag and I ended up being right. Lightning strikes twice?? July 31, 2011 at 5:03 am #2078594 Dyllan 222 Posts ^LMAO, I just have taste in couples. Nina and Patch would be hot. Nina McCall! Cute is codeword for boring. Why are we even getting into motive? When has Y&R ever develop a decent motive. WTH did David Chow kill Ji-Min? I’m sure they will make some lame ass reason. Speaking of Skye, whose body was buried under the stables? I thought Chow chopped her up? Kyle would be cool, but I doubt the writers would go there because it would make Kyle look like the kid from Orphan (I might reconsider my opinion). It would damage his character. My money is Avery. She’s expendable and motive means squat in soap world. July 31, 2011 at 5:11 am #2078596 Anonymous 2898 Posts Tucker is up there with Victor and Adam as one of the most despicable men on this show. That’s why he’s a suspect in Diane’s murder. Pairing him with Nina would be sickening. And Stephen Nichols’ performance is atrocious—I still miss William Russ! Plus, it would make for a much better story if Tucker were Nina’s father—God knows he’s old enough! Cute does not equal boring. Cute is what makes people fall in love with couples in the first place. I like to see my favourite couples together and happy, not torn apart and miserable. Nina and Paul have something real, and that’s rare on soaps, especially Y&R. Look at all their stupid recent couples: Daniel/Abby, Billy/Victoria, Colin/Jill—all duds! You have poor taste in couples, and I bet you don’t even root for true love soulmate supercouples. Again, you must really hate Nina to wish her on Tucker or Jack. Ugh! I don’t think it matters whose body was buried under the stable. Obviously it was someone Skye murdered to fake her death. Kyle could have killed Diane or without malicious intent. He wouldn’t suddenly become a serial killer. Avery isn’t expendable (yet). She is a new contract character which means she’s going to be around for a while. A recurring character like Leslie, however, is definitely expendable. July 31, 2011 at 5:21 am #2078597 Dyllan 222 Posts How’s Tucker evil? Because he slept with Diane? That may be gross, but not despicable. How about Nina and Kevin? Nina could be a cougar and wear leopard print tops like Phyllis back in the day. The cougar and the chipmunk. BTW, Stephen Nichols is a great actor. No way in hell is Leslie the killer. A black person on this show cannot have a personality or edge to them. They are all do-gooders. I don’t think Y&R has the balls to have a child killer unless they were being abused. It would have to be an accident and that did not look like an accident. Does anyone know if SH is coming back as Patty? MAB said she wanted SH to come back in the role of Patty, so I doubt they would recast the role. July 31, 2011 at 5:25 am #2078598 Anonymous 2898 Posts Why do you hate Nina so much? Seriously. Can you answer that question? Tucker’s not evil but he sure is despicable. I don’t like that kind of man. I hate how he calls Ashley “darlin'”. I hate his attitude. Stephen Nichols is a great actor in the role of Patch Johnson and that’s it. I only used Leslie as an example of an expendable character. DA Spencer Walsh is also expendable. Rafe is expendable. If Avery were expendable, she’d be recurring as well. July 31, 2011 at 5:41 am #2078600 shoegal 16 Posts I can’t wait to see this on Monday and then I can formulate a better hypothesis about the murder. The reason I say that it might be Kyle is because it could make sense that her own son killed her for having his life screwed up. If MAB’s writes it right it could be explosive. You could have all the suspects having contact with her. It could be a big who done it You would have Jack covering for Kyle, his son, or even Abby or Ashley. You’d have Ashley covering for Abby and for Tucker. Tucker thinking that Ashley or Abby did it, covering for them. Victor covering for Nikki, himself, Nick, Victoria and even Kyle. He did bond with the Kyle. July 31, 2011 at 5:47 am #2078601 Dyllan 222 Posts [Quote]Why do you hate Nina so much? Seriously. Can you answer that question?[/Quote] Because of her dry lips. Who said I hated her? I think you hate her, if you want her in that static boring azz relationship with Paul. Maybe Nina’s the killer? AC, you so need a twitter account. It would be epic.

He would be expendable, possibly.[/quote] I don’t think so. If he were expendable, they wouldn’t have bothered showing him onscreen while Nikki’s away. He also doesn’t have a solid motive for killing Diane and framing someone else (like Victor) for the crime. Deacon seems motivated by money and power (he eagerly took Diane’s $100) and getting back on his feet. I don’t see how he’d benefit from Diane’s death unless someone paid him to do it (which I doubt). Framing Victor would be a fun way to stick it to him but Deacon wouldn’t benefit from that. Also, since Deacon is technically a B&B character, I don’t think they would step on Brad Bell’s toes and destroy one of his creations. There is something sneaky about Deacon and I bet he’ll factor into the mystery as a witness. August 1, 2011 at 8:56 pm #2078731 bnt83 21 Posts Just watched the episode and really enjoyed it. I seriously didnt get the point of those stupid pillows. I found nicks comment to diane hilarious, “do you think Im going help you after you attacked my family”. He didnt have any problems sleeping with Phyllis, or hiring her after she attacked his sister in court and took her daughter!I wonder if they will ever reveal who killed diane, or if it will be ignored all together the same way Richard Hightowers death was. I was not a fan of Diane but I must say Maura West did an excellent job with the material she was presented. August 1, 2011 at 9:41 pm #2078745 Anonymous 2898 Posts Maura West has given a pretty good performance in the past few days, although still not enough to convince me she’s Diane. I gotta wonder if her own bitterness about being screwed over by Y&R seeped into her performance. August 1, 2011 at 11:09 pm #2078774 otalia4ever 10 Posts Do you think when they fish Diane out of the water, they will find the memory card too? Is it a coincidence that she is dead in the water where Adma threw the card? Then again, how many murders can take place at the Athletic club? August 1, 2011 at 11:13 pm #2078775 alstonboy4315 853 Posts The more I think about it, I don’t think Diane is even dead. I think she gave some corpse plastic surgery and tossed it in the river, framing everyone in town for her “death.” Diane will waltz into the Athletic Club in six months with a different face as if nothing ever happened. August 1, 2011 at 11:33 pm #2078778 Anonymous 2898 Posts I don’t think it matters if they find the memory card. The water damage would render it un-usable. If they do find it, they could trace it to Adam but they wouldn’t be able to prove he tampered with evidence. I think Diane is really, most sincerely dead. August 2, 2011 at 12:22 am #2078797 Anonymous 2898 Posts Otalia, funny you should mention “fish”. Just wait til you see who finds Diane’s body!

I wasn’t really blown away by MW’s performance. Don’t get me wrong, she did great, but I think it was more the dialogue and all the damn secrets coming out. Oh, and I agree. The pillows were LAME. August 2, 2011 at 4:48 am #2078834 GHdoolFan 5 Posts I’m going to go with just about everyone else and say that I think there are really only 3 suspects, but it is fun that so many people could have done it. IMO it was either Patty, Skye, or Kyle. I didn’t watch tomorrow (today’s Canadian) episode yet so if she gets shot or they show her get murdered I didn’t see that. That would throw my Kyle theory completely out the window. To me the best case scenario is Patty. I want her back and she should be the one to put an end to Diane anyway, with all of their history. Skye is probably worst case for me, but it would solve the Sharon in jail problem. I’m not a Sharon fan, but you know that is how she will finally get out. Adam talking on the phone made me nervous that it will be Skye, but I HOPE not. If its Kyle it will just be some kind of stupid accident where she bumps her head and he runs away. Btw, Stephen Nichols is a great actor. Not just as Patch. Patch is his iconic role, but I equally loved him as Stefan Cassadine on GH. That character had so many layers, it was crazy. I could watch episodes on end of just him in this role. Such an intriguing character. Of course on his way out, he underwent character assassination, but that’s how it happens on GH. It didn’t taint his performance or the role at all. He never phones it in. The role of Tucker is slightly boring, but I don’t hate it. August 2, 2011 at 5:14 am #2078842 Anonymous 2898 Posts I hated Stephen Nichols as Stefan. It’s just so wrong to see him on any soap that’s not Days of Our Lives. August 2, 2011 at 5:21 am #2078843 GHdoolFan 5 Posts He was fantastic as Stefan. Had chemistry with everyone. Laura, Bobbie, even his cousin Alexis. The only thing that didn’t work was Katherine Bell but they had to give that a try, I suppose. If you’re screwed out of the business after only playing a character for 5 years then that is just sad.
