On Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, Daytime Emmy winner Cynthia Watros made her debut in the role of Kelly. In her first scenes, Kelly was already telling her emotional story of how she lost her son, Sam to a grieving support group of other mother and father’s who have lost their children, and are trying to come to terms with it, or finding ways to deal with the tragedy.
Watros as Kelly continues to tell her story, where we learn more about the tragic that the death of her son, who happens to have been the same age as Billy’s daughter Delia when she was killed. Billy (Billy Miller) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) have joined the support group to try to figure out what they can do in their own lives to cope with their horrible loss. Victoria recounts the story of the fateful night that Delia was killed by a hit and run driver to the group and the guilt they both feel.
Kelly later reveals that she and her husband divorced two months ago, because with no one else to blame for the death of Sam, they blamed each other and their marriage went downhill. In these first scenes, it reminded us of just how great an actress Watros is!
Now the questions are: Is there more to be revealed in Kelly’ story? Is their an ulterior motive here? Will Kelly and Billy form a “friendship”? Is Kelly just a grieving mother searching for answers of how to move on with her life? Weigh-in!
