The Young and the Restless fans have already witnessed the final exchange between mortal enemies/eternal soulmates Kay Chancellor (the late Jeanne Cooper) and Jill Foster (Jess Walton). According to Y&R scribe Brent Boyd, Cooper's last scene as Kay was the character ascending the Chancellor stairwell during the May 3 episode. Tweeted Boyd:
The episode in question found Kay returning home to the mansion she shares with Jill, after being released from the hospital. Kay had endured surgery to remove a tumor from her brain.
Per usual, she and Jill were at odds. This time the root of their discontentment was Kay having passed over Jill, in giving control of Chancellor Industries to Cane (,Daniel Goddard). There has been no word on how Y&R plans to address the passing of Cooper in story.
