Y&R Fans are broken-hearted, confused, and have started enormous petition signings all over the recent February death of their beloved Cane Ashby played by the sexy and talented, Daniel Goddard. The scenes in question happened on the February 2nd airshow when poor Cane was shot to death and into a very bloody pulp, excessively bloody in our opinion! Now remember prior to the shooting, Cane was on his way to stop the wedding of his father, Colin to Jill and had left a note for his wife, Lily and a videotaped message to their twins, saying he had to leave for awhile. ( But what does awhile mean? forever?)
This week the funeral scenes aired and a grieving Lily sees Cane in her bed and has a chit-chat with him over the service and how his friends and pseudo-family honored him. So the question next becomes: “Is Lily going bonkers? Is Cane now in ghost mode? Is this all a ruse and in typical Y&R fashion the dead aren’t the dead, and Cane set the whole thing up, faked his death, to protect everyone? Did the writers love Tristan Rogers portrayal of Colin so much that they decided to go with his story and lying to Jill and everyone else over Cane’ story? Or, could Colin have been in on it too?” Who knows!!
EW.com got some inside information about the status of Goddard by relating, “A source close to the sudser said that Goddard remains a paid employee of Y&R until further notice (or until they’re officially ready to boot him). He’s not only set to reprise his role as Cane in the Feb. 18 and 23 episodes, but he’ll make additional appearances in March and April. What’s more, no one on the show will even acknowledge whether his character is actually six feet under. CBS ain’t saying, but this has to be good news for those fans (with nothing better to do) who decided to start a petition to save the Sydney-born Goddard, who’s been on the sudser since 2007. Hold onto your John Hancock, kids; He might not be heading to the unemployment office just yet.”
So what do you think soapers? Is Goddard really coming back? Let us know your thoughts!
