Big Red Doesn't Deserve to Go Out Like This on The Young and the Restless


Sharon (Sharon Case) and Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) fought on the stairwell, as Sharon tried to stop Jack (Peter Bergman) from hearing what Phyllis had to say. Phyllis took a Humpty Dumpty worthy fall down the stairs, as the applause behind Jack drowned out her scream. Sharon scrambled down the stairwell and hovered over Phyllis’ body. Instead of picking up the phone and telling Jack that Phyllis needed help, Sharon shut off the phone and felt for a pulse. I can’t believe Big Red is going out like this. Stafford deserved better than a fall down the stairs.

As Sharon was trying to figure out what to do, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Avery (Jessica Collins) came into the stairwell and started making out. Clearly, they were oblivious to the world. Sharon somehow managed sneak away. Nick and Avery came up for air, and then noticed Phyllis lying on the stairwell landing. Avery rushed back to the party to get a doctor, and was followed back by a group of Genoa City’s citizens.

Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Lily (Christel Khalil) shared a romantic moment. Blah, blah, blah. Same song, same unimaginably boring verse. The Young and the Restless keeps singing it, and it only gets worse.

Meanwhile, Lauren (Tracey Bregman) was not happy with Carmine (Marco Dapper) for tricking her into meeting with him.  She told Carmine she didn’t realize how deeply he cares for her.  Carmine realized his words wouldn’t convince her, so he pulled her into his arms. She pushed him away, and demanded to know what he was doing. Carmine responded he wanted more than an hour with her.

At the police station, Jill (Jess Walton) tried to help Michael (Christian LeBlanc).  We DESPERATELY need more Jill on our TV screens. Especially with Stafford leaving the show.

Sharon fled home, as everyone rushed to the hospital to check on Phyllis.  Sharon received a visit from ghost Cassie (Camryn Grimes). Then, Noah (Robert Adamson) showed up to tell his mom what happened to Phyllis.

Another perk of the episode: No Dyldumb (Steve Burton).
