If you thought you have loved the performances of Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) as the black sheep of the Newman clan, just wait! You have only seen the tip of the iceberg! In the weeks to come, viewers will see the unraveling of a story of epic proportions that will put Adam front and center in some heart-stopping, heartbreaking, and controversial moments!

So let’s take a look at where we are at heading into Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless: Adam and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) found out their son Connor needs a corneal transplant to see, but in order for it to be a success they must find a donor soon and the clock is ticking!  Little Delia (Sophie Pollono), the daughter of Billy (Billy Miller) and Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) was struck by a car in a hit and run.  She was taken by ambulance after a 911 call at the end of Friday’s episode with her father by her side.  Meanwhile, savvy fans saw that in the preview for Monday’s episode, there is a dent and a piece missing from the front of Adam’s car!  And over the last several days fans have been revved up and upset over what may be to come.

This past week, On-Air On-Soaps had the opportunity to catch up for few with the talented Mr. Muhney to get his own preview of what is to come for Adam in this heavily dramatic storyline!  Here’s what he shared …

Months ago, we teased Adam’s very intense and huge storyline to come, and now it is upon us.  As viewers saw last week on Y&R, Adam and Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) son, Connor needs an urgent corneal transplant in order for him to see, Billy (Billy Miller) and Chloe’s  (Elizabeth Hendrickson) daughter, Delia (Sophie Pollono) was just run down in an apparent hit and run accident, and Adam looks like he may have been the culprit who ran the little girl down! Quite the set-up for an actor to sink his teeth into!

MICHAEL:  I take it as a hell of honor to play such a big story like this and be so central to it all, and work with the folks I get to work with.  I think this is an amazingly unorthodox way to show Adam’s humanity.  So it’s not a stereo-typical: “Oh, this is how we get to know Adam and his feelings, and what makes him tick.”  Instead you get to see him in duress caught between a rock and a hard place, and in the middle of a storm and a hurricane and that is when someone shows their real heart.   I think that is where you are going to see Adam’s real humanity that perhaps you never saw before.

What are your thoughts on the writing of this tale which seems to be at its core, an unthinkable tragedy that no parent would ever want to face, and the ramifications that will come out of it for so many beloved characters?

MICHAEL:  People might not know this, but this is Josh Griffith’s (Ex-head writer, Y&R) story.  What is playing … this is what he was given a year to kind of get to this point with.   And this was when Josh had knocked down all the things he wanted to knock down, and fixed what he wanted to fix, and build up what he wanted to build up, and then say, “Now I want to start telling some big stories.”  And this is his real big story and it’s a coup de grace, but it’s a beautiful farewell for him.  It’s a nice way for him to go out.  He gets to hang his hat on what I think he told which is; a really controversial, interesting, character-driven story.  Three months from now whatever is airing is no longer his.  I will miss Josh.  I am glad he got to tell this story and go out on a high note.

This story has already stirred controversy, and it hasn’t even fully played out on-air yet,  because it seems that the character of Delia will be sacrificed in order for this much larger umbrella story to play, and in particular for Adam!  What reaction do you hope this story will evoke from the audience?

MICHAEL:  I am really excited about this, because, as I said, it’s a real character driven piece.  As big as the plot is and the story is, it is very character-driven.  Oh my God, I am so excited about the stuff that I shot six weeks ago in advance of what is airing.  I can’t wait for people to see this.  I am really enthusiastic about how I think they will respond, and what they will say, and will it evoke real feelings and emotions from people on both sides of the coin?  It’s going to be an amazing discussion that will be out there that will go on for a long time, and I am honored to be a part of it.

When the whole baby Connor paternity reveal finally came to light to Adam, that he was indeed the biological father and Chelsea had lied to him, how do you think that played out  …  and how will Adam handle fatherhood moving forward? (The twosome came to an understanding to co-parent Connor, particularly in his time of need on last Thursday’s episode.)

MICHAEL: Adam made a tacit agreement a long time ago to Chelsea.  That when she was pregnant, he would stay away from her and the baby, and just let them live their life.  I think deep down, he always knew this was his baby, but he sort of turned off that switch.  But when he finally knows about his son’s eye condition, he says to himself, “You were right all along.  You always knew that somewhere he was yours along!” So in that moment it was, “I will never let go now   He is my son there is no going back.  I am going to be a kind of father I always dreamed of having.  I never had a father.  He just wasn’t there.  Then instead, I never got a father growing up, I got an adversary.   I got an enemy instead of a father.”  So this is a chance for Adam to there from the beginning for his son and never leave his side, and do something so different, and show that Hope-side of his genetics.

So, are you looking forward to seeing Adam’s emotional storyline?  What do you think will happen?  Do you think Adam is the guilty party who ran down little Delia?  What are your thoughts knowing this was the final story created by former Y&R head writer, Josh Griffith?  Comment below!

    Im so tired of Soaps killing off little kids. Killing off Delia makes no sense. They could have gone a million different other ways. Y&R killed off Cassie years ago, & as much as they keep finding absurd reasons to bring her ghost back, I have wondered if they regret it. This move does not shock me, considering who is now in charge over there.

    Why not kill off Phyllis and take her corneas? Is it too late to take Carmines, maybe they were banked. Delia is such a sweetheart, maybe she is getting a bigger job.

    Patti replied

    No way!! Not Adam and Sharon… NO WAY! they were poison to each other.. but Adam and Chelsea well she proved to him that there was life after Sharon!!

    Sue replied

    Sharon needs to be by herself the rest of her life.She told Nick he was her soul mate and they belong together,just like she told all the other husbands.If she loved Nick she would have never changed the paternity test,that’s stupidity,and turning Faith against Avery every chance she got.I don’t blame Chelsa for not telling Adam when she needed him he had to run to Sharon.The one thing that makes me mad is telling Dylan he was the father.She didn’t have to say it was him and ruin his life.Killing DeDe is disgusting.These writers need to get it tofether or let someone else take over.Bring Ed Scott back.

    Theresa replied

    Adam drinks so much now! Adam has never been more unhappy ever since the con Chelsea flew in on her broom! Adam loved Sharon. A good writer would know that the history of Shadam! Chloe should of fell to the floor fainted something not hold her head like she can’t find her purse.People think I may be wrong for not loving Billy’s performance today and tomorrow. I love the character I really do. He’s one of my favs but I just must be a stubborn old fool . I expect like a Paul scene when he killed his own son. Oh I felt his pain! I expect t real drama convincing the audience. Sell it! Make me cry! Make me feel like there my family. Dang in the old days there family felt like our family. Holidays and all. Now I got no connection to the characters. They got to pull the audience in. Chloe forget about it she made me feel like she lost her brand new car not her only child. If that ratchet Chelsea takes that poor childs eyes she deserves to go straight to hell. Go buy a pair . Don’t take them from your friends dead child! This was as bad of a acting job as Chelseas bloodless baby delivery in a white wedding gown. Fake and unrealistic!

    Sharon gets on my last nerve. She is literally insane. I really like Chelsea. I like her and Adam together. They have much more spark then Chelsea and Dylan. I hope Adam and Chelsea get back together. :)

    They were sick together.

    elizabeth replied

    No Adam and Chelsea are good together, they need to get back together. I can’t stand Sharon. I feel bad for Adam, he didn’t see Deedee on the side of the road, this is a messed up situation for him. I hope it turns out ..that they all find out it was an accident. I also hope Adam brakes down with real emotion and sympothizes with them all. He is deep down a good guy. He deserves to have something work out in his life.

    Elizabeth replied

    Are kidding me? Sharon is a NUT CASE. Adam deserves much, much, much better than that – I am so happy Adam is with Chelsea – such a great rapport.

    I can’t stand they still have Chelsea with Adams baby. Sharon is Adams true love! Positively distasteful grotesque depressing killing a child and ruining favorite characters and writing horrible storylines for the past two years. This was the last straw! Fire the Producer and the entire writing team. Pink slips need to be given out today!

    I agree about Delia, what were they thinking, oh they weren’t. Tired of seeing innocent children being killed off. Leave the children alone, get rid of some of the boring stories, Sharon & Cassie, come on, you killed her, leave her dead.

    Gina Nicholson replied

    I totally agree about the constant child killing and miscarriages for plot twists enough already, there had to be a better way to deal with Connor’s blindness, which what a coincidence he doesn’t have his father or grandma’s eye disease but was supposedly traumatized during birth…she barely cried during his birth I had my son at home just his father and I…..anyway the ghost are sickening too especially Cassie not really happy to see her back with such a nasty change in attitude…..

    Soapstix replied

    I thought Sharon was Adam were good together, at one time, but that relationship flew out the window long ago. When she chose to let everyone think she was dead, even Adam, I was done with her. The excused she used were just wrong. Adam was the one person she could have counted on. After that, it has just been one disaster after another with Sharon and Adam. She also knew what she was doing to his marriage, and did not care.

    KatieRose50 replied

    Oh give me a break! If anyone needs killing off it’s Sharon!! Why they chose little Delia I’ll never know but they did and we just have to see where this goes. It’s just a television show people.. not real life.. I know alot of you don’t have anything else to do and I’m probably the worst of all as I can hardly get from the bed to the bathroom and have been this way for 7 years now.. but at least I get it.. it’s a televison show! I love it though. But I go with the flow,. doesn’t mean I like everything they write, but I’ve watched this show since the first day it aired. It’s still the best show on daytime television. Period. Give it a break ladies and gents.. :)

    Sharon doesn’t deserve to be with anyone….she is a psycho!!!! What kind of woman changes a paternity test because she thinks she can win Nick over and be with him forever? The little girl who played Delia,from what I understand got a job on the CBS series The Millers so that’s why they killed her off. Although I may not agree with the writers killing her off the actors who partook in this storyline are doing a fantastic job!!! I LOVE this show!!!

    Rashida replied

    If Delia was going to leave the show or her contract was up or something, they could have put in boarding school like the rest of the Y&R kids and come back in 2 years all grown up or figure out what they were going to do with her character.
    They did not have to kill her off and make once again Adam Mr. Bad Man who did it. Luv Adam I think he deserves to be happy with a family too for a long while anyways.

    WAIT JOSH GRIFFITH TOOK OVER HE PROMISED TO FIX SHARON FIRST HE NEVER DID THAT AND HE MADE HER WORSE. HOW DID JOSH FIX ANYTHING ? THIS SHOW IS SUCH A MESS NOTHING MAKES SENSE EXCEPT ITS ALL KIND OF WRONG!!!!!!!!! KILLING A CHILD FOR ANOTHERS CHILD WHO NEVER SHOULD OF HAD A CHILD WITH CHELSEA JUST FOR EYES. HATE THIS

    M. Diane replied

    It is worse than you think. He made Sharon bipolar and the way she has been acting is NOT bipolar. I should know as I am bipolar and have been studying it since my diagnosis. Nothing that Sharon does is anything like bipolar. It has caused problems for my family as they think that I am misdiagnosed as I don’t act like Sharon or that I am faking it. Yes I know that there are many shades of bipolar disorder but nothing Sharon does matches any of it. I certainly don’t see dead people… Well, unless I go to a funeral.

    Judy replied

    Honestly Josh went out with a story not one comment I have seen all over social media likes. The writers need to fix this. Fans are outraged and hate they killed Delia. Adam has never been more unhappy and he is becoming a alcoholic. I rather Adam much better with Sharon. They should be married by now. Speaking of Sharon wasn’t there an interview you had with Jill and Josh promised to fix Sharon and make her and Adam happy? I had hopes but now I muss Maria Bell or not but someone new please because Sharon sees ghosts and so tired about Chelsea and her baby drama. Enough and so repulsed to see a kid in a holloween costume run over. Words can’t say how fans are pissed

    Sophie is an incredible talent! I believe she will be so high in demand for other strong roles and headed to better and larger screen action. It was horrifying to imagine this vibrant character ending in such an abrupt manner, but I’m betting that little Sophie is going to show us a lot more to come. I used to love Sharon for years but the whacko part has never been legitimate for me. I like to see Michelle Stafford come back one last time and knock her out!!! It would be very heartwarming and sexy to see Adam (Michael Muhney) experience joy and anything happier for once. Loving the Dylan is Nicki’s son I hope he stays at Y&R. Proud the show is addressing PTSD issue which is very real. Get him a service dog from Battle Buddy. Pissed no, but always intrigued. Love my Y&R-

    elizabeth replied

    NO, NO Sharon….kill Sharon off man….everyone who likes Sharon is crazy themselves.

    Constance replied

    I dont know what to think about this story line. But I am sick of Adam getting accuse for everything even when the other actors are really the problem. Tired sick and tired of Victor and his obnoxious self. Not caring about no one but his self and distancing his own family even though he says he loves his family. What human being would always lash out at their children and disown them. He’s selfish and I believe he hit Delia at least I hope so cause I am tired of him. Never changes just get worse. Time for Adam to be happy and not always sad and trying to please an awesome person of a father named VICTOR NEWMAN. Yes, I am disappointed of Delia getting killed off the story and Billy leaving her in the car. Adam and Sharon did make a great couple at point and I believe he still has great feeling for her but dear old Dad told him to get rid of her or he would cut him (Adam) out of his life, What difference did it make, Victor cut Adam out of his life and disown him as a son. Blood thicker than Water??? HUMMMMM

    Deborah replied

    STOP KILLING OFF ABBOTS to save Newmans! Show the audience how REAL PEOPLE are saved in this circumstances thru eye banks, donor cards etc. It’s ridiculous to kill a CORE FAMILY Child like this! Hell, The twins are never on, why not have one of them go??????

    Sherma Starr replied

    Totally agree Deborah. We barely see them, far less have any connection to them. This is just heartless. Pure BS

    Adam fan replied

    Adam needs to be cleared of the accident, it should be Nickys fault.ORRRRRRRR Sharon’s.Adam also needs to get back his company.
    Billy needs to find out Victoria sold his brother out behind his back.Billy needs to divorce Victoria and take his son away from the newmans,then Billy,jack,Adam team up for ever no back stabing.Dylan I hope is not Nickys son.Maybe stych.Victoria,Victor,Nicky has done way more worse things that Adam so let Adam win and run the company on his own.

    MH replied

    I agree!!! Why not kill off one of the twins….or Faith? Especially if Adam is the driver…there is plenty of storyline with that!!! Delia was such a great character and Sophie was such a great little actress!!! I hate to se a kid killed off but these horrible writers at y&r insist on killing Abbotts!!! Little Sophie did too good of a job for this….I mean come on compared to Faith. Seriously!!!! I think Billy better wake up in Delia’s hospital room this week and all those death scenes were a dream!!!!!!! Or I am done with this show…they don’t deserve the ratings!

    Tonya replied

    I am not pleased with the killing off of Delia, I HATE the fact that they are killing off a child and using her as a sacrificial lamb just so Connor can see, On the other hand I look forward to seeing how it all plays out and to see some GREAT acting from Michael ( Adam ) and finally see some REAL emotion from him that I always knew was there deep down, I absolutely love Adam’s character and Michael’s acting NO ONE would ever play Adam Newman like him, and IMO when its all said and done I dont think Adam will be the culprit who ran Delia down, I know they like to make us think that Adam is always the bad guy but I dont think its going to be so in this case, its going to go on with ALL of us including Adam thinking that he is the one that indeed hit Delia but in the end it will be someone else but by then we will had already seen the emotional turmoil that Adam goes through in the process and let everyone see that he really does have a heart!!!

    I really hope that Billy is having bad dream or Adam,just because I don’t want Delia to die,so sad even for a soap opera to keep killing off kids.So let this be nightmare for the up comng Halloween please.

    I feel the same way….Adam is my fav…it’s going to be hard watching him deal with all this. But it does have everyone tailing about it

    Shelley replied

    I am sick about Delia dying, Sharon is a head case, Adam and Chelsea are good together, Dylan is sweet but boring. I do feel Adam is crying out to be loved and I’m am tired of the Newman’s always turning against him.
    Micheal does a wonderful job with this character! I do think we will be surprised when it plays out, I do hope it’s a dream as well.

    Constance replied

    I also hope this is a dream but I don’t think so. Yes, Michael aka Adam is doing a terrific job in playing his actor role. But my heart is sad for him cause no one character should have to deal with some of the good toe shoes on the show. Now they are going to turn the only friend he has on the show Jack against him by letting everyone believe he killed sweet Delia who is Jack’s niece.

    Shadam Fan replied

    Killing Delia was the last straw for me. The desperate attempts from falling ratings with these current stories have just left fans wondering why they still watch this show and how much Bill Bell’s creativity and morals are missed. Yeah that’s right Chelsea you just wait for those eyes. You snake! Im sure if you let Chelsea near Johnny she’d have no problem ripping the eyes right out of little Johnny’s still warm body. When did Chelsea ever give a shit about that child? NEVER! Guess delia will save Johnny and Connor. With Chelsea and her schemes nobody is safe. Well. we know that Victoria will have a girl now. We see how well this worked out with Nick and Sharon. Nick left Sharon alone to have Faith in a hospital. Faith never did replace Cassie and bring Nick and Sharon back together. Nick only messed Sharon’s head up more! Giving a Abbott’s organ is a waste. Colleens sweet heart couldn’t save Victor’s soul from the Devil. We need fresh stories not this sad crap. Killing one child to give another child the eyes is not what I signed up for entertainment. Its twisted.

    wow!!! it has been a while since I’ve heard such hatred!!! I thought I was into y&r. . . . . but I don’t hate(love) the actors like this person. I don’t care for this storyline, but will continue to watch to see how they(writers) work this out.

    Roz (Chadam Fan) replied

    Dear Shadam Fan,

    Why so much vitriol?

    a. Chelsea is a fictional character played by Melissa Claire Egan.

    b. The character’s paternity lie isn’t any worse than Adam’s cross-dressing-fetus-burning-terrorist days.

    c. Chelsea has said she’s sorry to Dylan and she feels remorse for hurting Avery and Nick.

    d. Admittedly, Chelsea hasn’t gotten around to apologizing to Adam yet but I’m sure when she does, he’ll have her pinned against his body, begging her to admit she regrets hurting him.

    I do admit, Chelsea’s a bit of an enigma. Her actions are far more weightier than her words. She claims to fear Adam taking Peanut or claims that he’s controlling, and yet, she goes ahead move into the penthouse. She’s been living there fore more than a week, I suspect and her living arrangements are curious. I do wonder what goes on behind close doors.

    Anyhoo, can’t wait for this s/l to unfold….and again, I’m sorry that Delia died. I liked her!

    Kai replied

    This is a story – it is NOT real and while the character of Delia may be over, that little girl is alive and well and probably wanted to leave the show for a better role elsewhere. Writers in this case have two options; replace the character with another actor or kill off the character. What decision they make is based on what gives them the best storyline going forward.

    Yes, it was difficult and heart-wrenching to watch and no episode has ever touched me as deeply as the ones the last two days and I have been watching Y&R for more than 40 years but what that tells me is that it must be an incredible storyline and superb acting for it to elicit such emotion from me. I mean really, who cares if Chelsea clutches her head, falls to the floor sobbing, or faints – people react differently to things and frankly, it was nice to see someone NOT collapse on the floor for once. She reacted as I would have.

    Y&R has always been about awareness to real issues and while not entirely realistic, who cares – it is a story, same as if you picked up a novel and read that. TV is NOT real folks and while the death of Delia was difficult to watch, children are killed by hit-and-run drivers every day and every day, children need transplants. If the result is that one parent thinks twice about leaving a young child in a car alone or signs up for organ donation, then it is a storyline well served because THAT is real life.

    This is an incredible storyline that will open up many possibilities and I look forward to seeing how the plot plays out – and I hope it brings out the softer side of the Adam character because u to now, we have only seen glimpses. As far as the storyline with Sharon goes, it is worn out and that character should be retired – burning down houses and faking paternity tests without consequences is not setting a good example for any younger viewers out there. I am glad the character of Nick pushed her away because I for one am not interested in another replay of the Sharon and Nick relationship that had no meat behind it.

    Final comment – I don’t typically read these message boards and I was astounded to find such hatred towards writers and characters. It is ridiculous and sickening. This is no different than a plot in a book – do you send hate mail to the author because you don’t like how a character is portrayed? With all the misspellings etc in these posts, you obviously could not do any better.

    T replied

    If this is story line is one you thought would increase your fan base you are sadly mistaken. I could not believe the show could take this kind of turn, and because of this I will not be viewing your show for quite a while. I lost a child, as many other fans have I am sure, and no doubt it is as devastating for them to watch as for me. I realize it is ‘only a show’ and these are ‘only actors’; however, you are touching upon tragedy that is the worst of the worst. I have watched Y&R since day one, but sadly the plot only sickens me these days. Deaths are expected, but a child’s? I’m sorry, but no.

    T replied

    I am replying to Kai. You’re correct, the world is not always a happy place; however, have you lost a child? To watch this on a daytime soap is not what I expect. I record this show every day on my DVR and it is my getaway after working all day. I have watched it every day since the first show. BUT, I have lost a child and it is more devastating than anyone can imagine and to relive that heartache at the end of each day is not what I, nor many others choose to do. I truly hope your troubles in life are few and you are always able to believe what you said.

    SORRY NO NO NO! I will not watch! I am a fan of the show for 28 years. I think killing delia or any child is awful and beyond depressing. This is not what a soap should show. I feel like Im watching Law and Order SVU or Criminal Minds ! SICK! Is there a way that the new writers can pleeeeeease for once fix the show. Sharon is my all time favorite and so ridiculous she is never aloud to be happy EVER! But Chelsea has all the men and all these kids in a two year time frame. Please fans been begging and pleading for Drucilla Victoria Rowell to return. The Rose story is another one not one person / fan likes. I think this may be the end at least for me. I been trying to hold on but I did have to say enough I erased todays show. I can’t see death of a child!

    Reply

    Roz (Chadam Fan) replied

    Dear KayKay,

    When Victoria Rowell was written off the show, no one petitioned TPTB to rehire her. There weren’t endless posts denouncing the mistreatment and disrespect of this talented actress. Instead, fans were all too content with storylines involving Phick, Shick or Shadam.

    When Drucilla’s storyline began to dwindle to dust as other storylines started to heat up, not one fan objected. However, when Sharon is perceived as being written “out of character”, suddenly I’m seeing fans come out of the woodwork to fight the good Dru fight. I don’t think so!

    It reads like an agenda-driven post.

    I mean seriously, where were all these embittered Victoria Rowell/Drucilla fans when I was on the CBS message boards? Where were all of these passionate Dru fans when Sharon, Nick and Phyllis gobbled up 89.9% of front burning s/ls? Where were any of you when we were writing MAB to increase Dru’s interaction with other characters? I’ll tell you where: you all were sitting in front of your televisions content with the s/l you were given.

    I know people are upset about the Delia storyline and that’s understandable. I expect to read a lot of feedback concerning the controversial death of an Abbott; but what catches me off guard, often times, aren’t fans disappointment with said s/l but their willingness to use everything under the sun to push an agenda.

    Anyway, loved Mr. Muhney’s interview. It was very, very interesting.

    kate replied

    Did it ever occur to ayone that the actress (or actresses) who played Delia
    was tired of being on the show; or perhaps her parents requested they be written out of the show!! Stop critisizing the writers, they have a job to do.
    Let them do their job, and try to show some support for the amazing work that they do instead of threatning to stop watching this great show. If you want to stop watching it, then go for it, but stop your whining!! NOBODY was actually KILLED off! ITS A SHOW!!!!!!!

    T replied

    I have also erased shows on my DVR. It only causes heartache for me as I also lost a child. It stirs emotions I cannot deal with. :(

    Diane replied

    I did not like murdering a child I do not find this entertainment . I do not like Chelsea’s child gets Delias eyes. So inappropriate for a daytime soap. I do not like every day the show is about Chelsea her lies her babies the babies she gave away the babies she lied about who the father is. I am ready to stop watching and move on to another soap. I rather Sharon with Adam but I did not like the way Nick treated Sharon (Wednesday 10/09/2013). When she tried to kiss him, He acted so childish and very nasty. Who does he think he is? That was wrong, even if he didn’t want to kiss her he didn’t have to jump and push her away. He could have did it in a different way. Hadn’t Nick done enough to Sharon to last a life time! I mean really now. Nick has poor taste . He picked Phyllis then Avery. EEEEW Everyone talks about Adam but Adam never was as awful to Sharon as Nick was! Untill Chelsea came to town. Then Adam changed instantly to loving Sharon to a very unhappy character. Nick does not deserve Sharons love! Nick is a jerk so simple. He should hook up with that lying con artist Chelsea . Nick and Chelsea deserve each other Dylan is way to sweet for Chelsea

    Adam was never awful to Sharon?? He had her believe Faith had died!! I’d much rather have a man I was about to kiss jump away, than someone tell me my child was dead!

    Let me see….Sharon burned down the home of Nick’s parents and changed the paternity tests of his teenage daughter so he would believe she wasn’t his, married his father and was running Newman into the ground – and that’s just for starters. Sharon is not the sweet girl he was once married to – she has psychological problems and talks to dead people.

    He and Avery were good together and they just broke up and those feelings don’t just go away overnight. When people are still suffering the loss, they don’t want other women in their personal space, especially an ex-wife. Nick has always treated Sharon with respect and I don’t know of any ex-husbands that give their ex-wife free reign in their home, even if they have children.

    He reacted how anyone would under those circumstances – he was caught off-guard and the character needed to act that way so it would be crystal clear to viewers that he was NOT at all interested in Sharon. He cares about her only because she is the mother of his children; he clearly has NO interest in getting back with her and quite honestly, who would? She is no longer his HS sweetheart but rather a manipulative, deceitful, dishonest, and dysfunctional woman who against her doctor’s advice, won’t take her meds.

    I erased the show from my dvr. Not until I hear this is all over with and not a word about killing a child in her halloween costume . I will ck in to comments and posts from everyone but I will not sit there and watch something depressing. They have shows like 48 hours crime shows and stuff about death and murder. This is not the time and place on a daytime show

I look at it this way watching Y&R for me was beginning to be like a bad marriage time to sign the divorce papers.

    I don’t think anyone can change paternity test. I think she forged the letter to Nick, she just didn’t have access for that. I love Adam & I hope he isn’t the one that killed the child. He needs to go to police but once he does his goose is cooked.. If it’s Nicky that would be the second person she killed . I don’t know where they r going but I don’t think I like it cause Billy & Adam r best actors on show. But Billy wants to leave every year. Get tired of reading that. I love Chelsea to. Loved her on AMC & now on YR.

    I erased the episodes too, and cancelled my DVR until further notice. I don’t want to wallow in all this depressing boo-hooing either, especially so soon after Mrs. C’s death. This show is simply depressing. Where are the romantic scenes and the super couples of old? There isn’t one on the show I care about anymore. They ruin everyone’s character and then wonder why viewers disconnect. There isn’t anyone left to root for. Writers need to go back and study what worked and why back in the days where viewers couldn’t miss an episode! I’ve watched since day one and this year has been THE WORST. Given some of the awful story lines over the years, that is saying something.

    Y&R has been killing kids for the last 20 years for plot twists, rather it be a car crash or miscarriage…think about it. GC is a very small city yet all the characters has had one or more miscarriages, just think how many times Ashely has been pregnant yet only has one child…same for Victoria many pregnancies one child and add Phyllis to that list too. It’s just an easy way to change a story and keep the GC population down, until a long lost forgot about baby they gave away comes along…

    Kai replied

    Life is not all about sunshine and rainbows – life is about happiness and laughter but also about sadness, grief, loss, betrayal, and disappointment, which btw, gives much more fodder for story lines. Babies die everyday – be it by miscarriage, beatings, falling asleep with a baby, sickness, car accidents, etc. And many years ago, they had a story line about Nina’s baby being stolen and sold on the black market – is that OK but this isn’t?

    Maybe you are lucky enough to have a life with no heartache but there are people whose lives do include things written into the plot of Y&R. Babies are born without sight. Small children are hit by cars and if you want to hide your head in the sand to the realities of life, than I agree, soaps are not for you; stick with comedies and sitcoms. And I would suggest you do some channel surfing during the day and watch some of the talk shows, most with subject matter you would not think acceptable for daytime viewing either.

    I find it exceedingly commendable that Y&R wants to bring awareness to people in addition to providing entertainment. They feel a responsibility to do that – producers, writers, and the actors/actresses – it gives them a sense of giving back. TV shows shouldn’t just be about making money, nor should bringing awareness be limited to certain types of shows. There are too many ignorant and uninformed people out there and if this show educates even a few of them, I say Job Well Done.

    This storyline is still a horrible way to justify keeping this character (Adam) alive. Y&R must think their Fans are idiots. We all are aware that a person with Leukimia (Cancer) cannot donate organs. Also, this will be the second Child that Adam has killed. Less we forget Victor and Ashley’s unborn child. Fire this Character now!!! As a 40+ year veteran of the show, I think I’m done…I wouldn’t be shocked if this soap goes down the tubes with the rest…What a shame!!! Shame on the Writers!!!

    First off right the part about Delia donating her corneas to Connor hasn’t air yet– but if that happens, last week the doctor explained to Adam and Chelsea corneas are not connected to any blood vessels so donors for corneas don’t have to be a match like for an organ like the liver– so I assumed if that is true that will be the justification that will allow Delia to be Connor’s cornea donor, even if she had cancer.

    kate replied

    Come on Mary. Its JUST A SHOW! Nobody is getting any corneas, and NOBODY WAS KILLED! When you see a horror movie..do you really think that a person in the movie REALLY gets a knife driven through their chest.
    You need to focus on the actors who play BILLY, VICTORIA, CHLOE AND CHELSEA! They were phenominal to say the least; and when the scene was over…they probably kissed ( the actress who plays Delia) and said ” Good job sweetheart” because SHE ISN”T REALLY DEAD!!!

    Could everyone please just take a deep breath and step back from the ledge for a minute. Many of you are sounding like you’re becoming unhinged here, it’s not healthy. The actress who played Delia is alive and well and currently starring in the new CBS show The Millers. If you’ve stuck with any daytime soap for any length of time (I’m a Y&R lifer, 40 years) you know that the impact of any major storyline will never be fully understood until several years down the road, be patient. Yes it was hard to watch, yes I cried just like I’ve cried through other story lines too. I disagree with many of the decisions made on Y&R especially the reappearance of dead characters, it’s so ridiculous. Isn’t it just possible that a major part of why this is hitting everyone so hard is because of the brilliant performances of the actors involved? I cannot remember a time when there were so many incredibly talented actors on the show at the same time. I am so grateful they have chosen to work on Y&R, we are very lucky to have them. Bravo!!!

    Excellent comment Christina. This is a soap opera. I was upset at first about Delia but then realized that she is a real life child and maybe her parents wanted her off the show or maybe she is moving on to bigger and better things. Reality vs. acting or storyline is not the same. Love the show. Would also love to see a twist that it was Nikki not Adam. I couldn’t imagine why they showed her driving that night but now, I think there will be more to it! Can’t wait!

    I agree with Judy.I can’t believe they killed off Delia especially after Jeannie Cooper (Katherine) just died. Enough is enough. People watch this show to escape from their own problems but to see something so heart wrenching makes me very disgusted. I agree that they are always killing off people & trying to bring them back, not only Cassie but also John. They need to think through their story lines better. With everything going on in the world this is just over the top. I really wonder if the actors think this is a good thing to do with children.

    Kai replied

    The actress that played Delia was phenomenal and she got a part on a primetime show so was leaving Y&R. She was so good that she would be hard to replace with someone viewers would connect with. So instead of sending her off to boarding school (which would not make sense anyway) and having her reappear again later as an older version, the writers used it as a starting point for another great plot with may twists and turns. In other words, the writers did what they were paid to do – write.

    If people watch soaps to escape their own problems and expect something uplifting all the time, that is a ridiculous assumption. Yes, it is an escape (guilty pleasure) from your own life into the lives of an imaginary family but for me, it just reminds me how others have problems much worse than mine and it puts things into perspective.

    I am not a fan of the departed having conversations with those still alive but I understand it – the writers needed a way for the character to express to viewers what they were feeling/thinking and this way worked better than having the character confide to another character, which would not work well with the plot.

    As for if the actors think this is a good thing to do with children – I am sure they have no issue with it as they are actors and they are just doing their jobs and then they go home to their families, including the actress who played Delia.

    The death of Delia was tasteful – they showed no body either injured or once she died – just superb acting by all involved. They did not show her getting beaten to death by a parent, raped and bludgeoned to death by a stranger or anything else that would have been more difficult for viewers to watch.

    A powerful story surrounding Adam could have been told without the writers brutally killing another important Abbott legacy character that carried so much long term potential. Further, this story feels inorganic, forced, and strictly driven by plot. Yes, the actors are delivering phenomenal performances, but seriously, we already saw this EXACT SAME STORYLINE when Jill Farren Phelps was over at GH and mowed Jake down.

    Alright, I just got done watching “The Walking Dead” and I’m feeling wired. Here are my thoughts:

    I used to think Tracy Abbott was one of those legacy characters with long term potential. It never panned out. Ashley and Jack were the only Abbotts people seem to care about, and Tracy was there for shucks and giggles. Bill Bell and every other regime thereafter didn’t seem to latch on to this character’s potential and her effectiveness in the business world.

    So when we go on about these long term characters and their potential for years to come, I think back to teenage Tracy and the hot pool boy (Brad) who she crushed on, and just shake my head. What’s the point of having them if they’re never seen at all. You know!

    Anyway, I think if Josh Griffith had acted as head writer and executive producer of ‘Young & the Restless’ that he would’ve penned an entirely different story than the one that recently aired. I do remember how the stories coalesced in the beginning of the year, most notably stories involving Chelsea and Adam, and I do recall that there were a few (the rape charges by Melanie for example) that were abruptly ended, so I am not sure if Y&R latest twist had been a planned affair.

    I think the story of Delia’s death is a rehash of one that had been done on ‘General Hospital’ and I think the person who actively campaigned for this idea to take fruition was Jill Farren Phelps but I digress.

    I thought Michael Muhney’s interview was good. He did great and I’m sure whatever he has in store for us is going to be spectacular.

    It is sad to find out Josh Griffith who we all thought was coming to the show last year to fix all that was wrong with the show. Sad he thought this was the right move! Killing Delia was the last straw for me. The desperate attempts with these current stories have just left fans wondering why they still watch this show and how much Bill Bell’s creativity and morals are missed. Yeah that’s right Chelsea you just wait for those eyes. You snake! Im sure if you let Chelsea near Johnny she’d have no problem ripping the eyes right out of little Johnny’s still warm body. When did Chelsea ever care about her child? NEVER! Guess delia will save Johnny and Connor. With Chelsea and her schemes nobody is safe. Well. we know that Victoria will have a girl now. We see how well this worked out with Nick and Sharon. Nick left Sharon alone to have Faith in a hospital. Faith never did replace Cassie and bring Nick and Sharon back together. Nick only messed Sharon’s head up more! Giving a Abbott’s organ is a waste. Colleens sweet heart couldn’t save Victor’s soul from the Devil. We need fresh stories not this sad crap. Killing one child to give another child the eyes is not what I signed up for entertainment. Its twisted.

    Yes Adam is the one who hit DE DE. I believe her eyes will go to Adams son Connor. I believe that Adam will feel very guilty when he realizes he is responsible for DE DE’s death. Billy and Adam will have strongly worded conversation. Billy will wonder why Adam left her beside the road but in Adam’s favor he didn’t realize he had hit anything since he saw the dog go running down the road. Billy will blame himself because he left her in the car to wait for him and he trusted her to listen to him and not leave the car. I believe Billy should have taken DE DE with him instead of trusting her to stay in the car after all she is a child and kids that age don’t always do what their parents have told them to do since they are not fully aware of the dangerous situations they can get themselves into.

I just wish Stitch was the son Nikki had and not Dylan because he is QUITE successful on his own as was Adam before Victor clawed his soul out to the point I didn’t think he’d make it….. Starts doing well and the writers knock him down again. It’s time Victor, Nikki, Victoria and Nick get a taste of doing without for awhile.

    And hey, writers, quit killing off the Abbotts to give their body parts to the Newmans. Worked great for Victor…. he still acts like he has no heart… or no soul!

    She only lied to him after all kinds of stuff. He basically ignored her after their unborn child died, then continuously picked Newman over her. Remember their plans to leave town and start over again without interference from Newman? He pushed it off, pushed it off, finally said he wasn’t going. Then he started treating her badly (his Victor DNA coming out). Then she found out she was pregnant and knew it was his. Not that I’m putting all the blame on him and defending her, but I do think she had an impact on him earlier in their romance. I genuinely believe he loved her, he just wanted his fathers love/respect MORE. ‘Being nice’ to her as you put it, shows that he wants to do things differently than he has in the past or in how he has seen his fathers controlling/domineering, vindictive ways, work together with the mother of his child to raise said child together.

    I do hate that they killed off Delia, especially after her almost dying a while back. She had ties to core families on this show, the Abbots, Katherine Chancellor and the Newmans (although not by blood in the later two).

    What Adam did before the baby-switch is NOTHING compare to what Chelsea did to him..him being so ‘nice’ (like i said) to her now does not make any sense for a character like Adam. That is all.

If you don’t want to watch Y&R don’t and since she has had nothing to do with the storylines up to now, you are complaining about the wrong person anyway. In the 40+ years I have watched this soap and others either now or some time ago, the stories repeat themselves – there are only so many things they can write about and did it ever occur to you that in all probability, writers are given the general storylines and told to develop them? Read the interview above and you will see that is what was said by someone who actually knows what goes on behind the scenes.

    I didn’t follow the GH storyline where Luke committed a hit-and-run, so for me this story is fairly new territory. Oddly, I look forward to how the actors will portray their soap counterparts; Billy, the grieving father, will this drive him back to his gambling/drinking addictions. Chloe, the grieving mother who after pushing and willing her daughter to fight for life when ill awhile back, suddenly has to face that fate intervened with the life of her young daughter. Adam and Chelsea, parents who desperately need the corneas that DeDe can donate for their infant son, having to be put in the impossible situation to ask the grieving parents for their help, and even more, Adam’s slow discovery that he might be responsible for DeDe’s death. Kevin, finally having to suck it up and grow up to help his ex wife through the grieving process, and deal with the loss of a child that he loved as his own. I’ll definitely tune in to see how these character evolve. And of course, Traci will be back to help her brother Billy. She will be a help to her brother since she lost her daughter just a few years back, but will she be able to help Billy? Jill will need to put her best maternal instincts to work to help Billy, and will Ester even be of any help to her daughter Chloe in this tragedy? Can Victoria and BIlly’s marriage survive this loss? Sharon and Nick’s marriage didn’t make it a year after Cassie’s death. This story does umbrella out. However, Nikki does not need to be in the midst of this. Let’s just forget we ever saw that milli second where she was on a dark road driving and crying. She has enough story with Victor; her long lost son; and her MS.

    I like the dramatic storyline, and don’t know why people are getting all twisted up over a tragedy involving a child. Tragedies occur in real life, and sometimes they involve children. Why is it a bridge too far for some, that a soap would have a child die in a horrific vehicle/pedestrian accident? The only thing I’m anguishing over is the involvement of Adam. I lurve him, and don’t want to see yet one more heavy burden on his shoulders. This would be the mother of heavy burdens too.

    Good interview, but I wish Michael had slipped and spoiled a bit more. Sigh…

    Cate replied

    The reason fans are getting “all twisted up” is because we have already experienced traumatic child deaths on this show. It seems like it’s happening every 3-4 years at this point. First, the beloved Cassie Newman. Next, Colleen Carlton – whose heart was donated to Victor Newman. And now, Cordelia Abbott – whose corneas will supposedly be donated to Connor Newman. Fans don’t tune into soaps to watch children die. Of course, it brings great drama, acting, and storyline. But to hit fans over the head with this every 3-4 years? Not only is it gut-wrenching, it’s repetitive, almost boring!

    When I saw the scenes, I cried for Adam’s character, too. I hate to see him (or any character) take on this burden of guilt. But that’s not the point. The point is that the writers and producers chose to kill off a beloved legacy character for what?? Ratings? Good luck.

    So an Abbott got killed by a Newman for another Newman. Just peachy! This is not a character driven story by any sense simply because none of the pieces make logical sense. If they were going to kill off a soap kid then Johnny would have made more sense. Having Chelsea’s other son, the son she gave up, being the donor would have been the real drama. They still would have had Billy VS Adam plus the added mix of Victoria knowing about the paternity and blackmailing Chelsea. All those points FIT! Instead they killed off an Abbott legacy character that could have had so much potential.

    This story is a true heart breaker and tear jerky. I did not see the story on General Hospital so I am enjoying my two favorite actors front and center on screen, Michael Muhney whom is the best thing to ever happen to Y&R and Billy Miller. Both are phenomernal actors and I so hope they both win Emmys next year. Melisa Claire Egan is also one fantastic actress and she and Michael together are just so entertaining whether they are fighting, making love, or just in a scene together just standing there, never seen this much chemistry between two daytime actors before. So much entertainment. Little Dede will be missed, but it is my understanding she will be appearing on another show and she will always be remembered as a fantastic little actress on Y&R. The story thus far has been written beautifully, although tragic, and just pulls at our heart strings. Isn’t that what a soapy, good soap opera does? Yes. I always said Y&R had the best talent and the sexiest, pretty people on daytime. These last couple of weeks proves just that. I have been glued to my seat and cannot wait until the next episode. I read every spoiler I can get my hands on because I like to know what is going to happen. I like spoilers and I never miss an episode.
    I love me some Adam Newman and I just hope he gets out of this mess and I hope his little Peanut does not loose his eyesight. I would like to see Adam with a woman who loves him unconditionally and stands by her man through the good, the bad, and the Ugly. Because that is what you get with Adam Newman. In addition to one tall, sexy, good looking man with lots and lots of money. If Chelsea is that woman, then the writers need to put them back together pronto. I am still hoping for that Norman Rockwell Christmas this year with Santa visiting Little Peanut Newman. He is the little scene robber. He is so cute just like his daddy.
    I am a true Adam Newman fan. His character is just so entertaining and only Michael Muhney can bring that to the viewers. I wish he and Chelsea and the baby were on everyday, but I know they have to share time with all the other great talents of Y&R. I love this show and I hope it is still going strong for the next 40 years.
    As for Adam, I am still hoping he just thinks he hit Delia but I am hoping for a miracle and he did not hit her. Just not sure what happened out there on that dark, dreary rode that night. I do know a tragic accident did happen and I cried like a baby. But I needed a good cry and I do know it is not real, but just a very good, well written reel story.
    Thank you Josh Griffith for this story. Everyone will remember this one for years and years just like we remember Cassys death. Thank you Michael Muhney, Billy Miller, Amelia Heinle, T,. Hendrickson, Melissa Claire Egan, for all your hard work and talent. Thank you for sharing your talent with all the millions of Y&R fans. Thank you Michael Fairman for interviewing my favorite television star, Michael Muhney. I enjoy his interviews so much. He is open and honest about his part in the show and we fans appreciate it.

    @bstanley I thought I was the only person who felt this way about Michael Muhney. Since he came to the show and how his character has evolved. I see him in a future with Chelsea and Connor although I feel they should probably change his name. He performances are flawless and he makes it look so easy. Same for Billy Miller…just heart wrenching to watch. A truly talented cast.

This was Josh Griffith’s first big story that he wanted to tell? Wouldn’t letting Cordelia Katherine Valentine Abbott grow up lead to plenty of big stories that affect the Abbott, Chancellor, and via extension, Newman families? I just don’t understand this. I have every confidence in the actors, but the producers and writers have made a huge mistake, in my opinion.

    I’m sorry MM, but this storyline is pure garbage and here is why:

    1)I’m not buying this is JG’s storyline. This storyline is identical to Jake’s hit and run on GH. The dialogue and scenes are completely the same. And who was the EP at GH? JFP This is JFP’s storyline. This is lazy writing in which the writer’s just copy and pasted the scripts from GH.

    2)Why kill off another legacy character only so a Newman kid can see? This isn’t life threatening condition. A total waste.

    3)The writers have already killed off one Abbott (Colleen) and donated her organs to a Newman and it did nothing. Viewers don’t want to see the same thing happen again.

    4)The writing has not been that good. Friday’s flashforward’s were awful and boring.

    This storyline is good,but young and the restless needs to go back to its original music. The show also is in need of a good villain, every show needs an evil character. Bring back Patty,Sheila or Tricia or create a new crazy psycho. No one wants to watch a show that doesn’t have a villain. And the old music added to the dramatic mood of the show. If they fixed these two things the show would improve. Oh and get rid of new Abby,Tyler,Kyle,Fen and Noah. They are all terrible!

    I always felt that Adam had a compassionate side. When Adam was beginning to show kindness towards his family, he was hurt when Victor returned home from his amnesia incident and he wasn’t notified. Instead, Adam learned of Victor’s return on the television. At least Abby said, we should notify Adam. Anyone would feel hurt when you see your Father and siblings on TV during a news conference and you’re sitting at home. After that Adam returned to his old ways. As for Delia if she has another job, then cast another actress. Adam and the Doctor could be instrumental in finding a cornea for Connor in the bank. Katherine died in real life, Carmine is dead, Phyllis is in a coma on a long vacation. Isn’t that enough bad news for a period of time? Sharon I regret to say needs to be on vacation for a while in the hospital. Sharon burned down Victor’s house, changed the DNA test and although allegedly accidentally pushed Phyllis down the stairs. I have watched this story for 40 years and hope that the story lines are well written and analyzed; not assuming that the viewers are ignorant.

    If you noticed, there was a shot of Nikki driving during the exact same time period, with an almost identical looking Range Rover type car. I think this is something pivotal in this story. I do not think it was Adam who hit Delia at all. It may have been Nikki. But it will take a very long time for it to play out, which will lead to another arc involving Nikki. Maybe another bout with drinking.

    Still thinking about “The Walking Dead’ and that kid who collapsed and turned into a walker while every survivor in the cell block was sleeping. That was a “oh snap” moment but I digress.

    I’m going to suck it up and put my big girl panties on. I suggest anyone who is reading do the same. If Michael Muhney said that Josh Griffith was responsible for penning Delia’s death and orchestrating a scenario eerily similar to one created on GH (a few years back), then I have no other choice but to accept it.

    After all, why would an actor or an executive producer actively deflect this type of publicity away from their persons or the show. It wouldn’t make any sense. So if he said Mr. Griffith penned Delia’s death and Adam’s involvement, then I will take his word for it. Therefore, for those still upset, I need you all to cut out the temper tantrums, readjust your involvement in the show and watch purely for entertainment purposes; because I’m sure this isn’t the first time Y&R dealt with controversial issues and it will not be the last under this or future regimes.

    Frankly, I do see long term potential for this storyline and unlike rivalry between Victor and Jack, the one that is about to begin between Adam and Billy will have actually, hard-hitting and unforgettable substance. Viewers will know why there is animosity between these two men and it will be believable.

    In any case, again, Michael Muhney, great interview. You did wonderful, as always!

For an actor to be excited about the work he is doing & material he is receiving is called being an actor, not an ass kisser. SMH.

    HATE that they killed our lil Delia — her scenes with Billy were AWESOME! I am sure he feels like he lost his own child! (THIS on the heels of losing Jeanne Cooper is too much!) We ALL just went thru that loss–the actors, fans, and now to make us go thru the unnecessary, ridiculous loss of a CHILD that has DEEP ROOTS — Billy’s only daughter, Chloe’s only child, Ester’s only grandchild, Jill’s only graddaughter, and on and on is DISGUSTING-THANKS JOSH! The only thing that will make this interesting is if Adam confesses EARLY–otherwise it is the same oold storyline…an Abbott fixes a Newman (Cassie saves Victor, now Delia is sacrificed for eyes?) There were soooooooo many ways they could have fixed this child’s eyesight–if only they had ANYONE at Y&R who did research! OR if only ANYONE at Y&R cared about the integrity of the characters and preserving LONGTERM the core famiies! You KNOW JFP is ultimately to blame!

    Deborah I know what you mean Colleen heart is in Victor newman and Delia Cornia( don’t know if I spell it right) will be in Conner Newman eyes we will see if Conner gets it or not remember Chloe and Billy can’t stand Adam but with Ashley coming back and Jill coming back and with the help of Tracy I belive they will do it not because they want to but because they will think it is the right thing to do. I bet this will change Chelsea and Chloe friendship

    I don’t think Nikki or Adam hit her it will be a person we least expected. Thank about if Adam had hit her it would have been more glass broken the a piece of glass and remember Adam didn’t see Delia but when billy came out of the store and saw her right where Adam was now if Billy could see her from the street which means Adam should have saw her. My theory is Delia hid behind the tree so Adam could not see her but when Delia got up after Adam left here comes a car hit her and put her in the position she was in again my opinion

    This storyline was penned by Bob Guza for GH and originally aired on March 18 2011. MM is being a good Sony employee and going out to support JFP (who by the way was the EP on GH during 2011) to appease the livid fan base. So here is a question for MM, why was the reaction of Chloe hearing about Dee’s death the EXACTLY the SAME as Liz’s? Right down to seeing the character’s fall to the floor in grief through a glass window! Did the director’s need a year to block that scene? Or maybe they just needed to watch GH or to talk to JFP?

    So let me get this straight…

    Josh left because of creative differences with Phelps. But THIS is HIS Swan Song story. I don’t buy it.

    Like Dylan “becoming” Nikki’s son, my bet is that Josh was TOLD to write both of those stories. And knowing how they impact both YR history and future, he wanted out.

    I don’t have any hard feelings toward ANYONE or ANYTHING about YR except for the fact that this woman is still in charge and she needs to go.

    The actors, crew and most of all, audience deserve to have so much better.

    And why people think that these new writers will be any better is beyond me. We know that Phelps is dictating what they write.

    I have a problem with Dylan being Nikki’s son and it is the numbers. For Dylan to be her son he has to be at least 10 months older than Victoria but he went to school with Avery who is Nick’s age. Nick is three years younger than Victoria.

  49. Loretta Singleton says:

    First I will say I am looking forward to the emotional SL that is coming Billy Miller nailed it and for Adam I know he will nailed it as well. The hit and run I really don’t think Adam hit Delia the reason is this look at it again when Adam gets out of the car he don’t see Delia all he sees is Dash but now when Billy came out of the store and walks just right where Adam stop and sees Deila tell me how come Adam didn’t see her he had his lights right there. I am thinking that Deila was already hit by another car think again if Adam had hit her with the impact of his driving it should have been more broken glas not just a chip of a glass the way Adam was driving and how he stop my opinion he should have more glass missing from his tail light. I don’t think Nikki did it either but there was someone else on that dark road and we didn’t see again my opinion but who ever it was it will be someone we least expect. I agree they could have gotten another donor for Conner but they made a choice to kill Deila off and now she will be the one to give Conner his cornia (not sure if I spell it right) and now another Abbott will give another Newman there organ. This SL will change everyone involved and it looks like we are in for a shock that what will come of this. When Nikki tells her family about Dylan it will send her family in shock wave especially Victor he will be very upset and probably be bad mouthing him just like he do Billy and Jack until Nikki can’t take it anymore and I am sure they will be comimg to a split which is not be a surprise to me that they part ways once again. Now to the Actors thanks for a job well done in this SL with Delia they hitting on point with Billy leaving Delia in the car and on point about a driver hitting someone and leaving the scene of the crime. Thanks all of you for what you do keep up the good work Thumps Up To All Of You

    I must be missing something here, because I consider this to be anything but some great storyline. I have watched Y&R for years but I’m considering whether or not I’m willing to invest any more time in it. One thing that keeps long-time viewers coming back is a connection made with core families and legacy characters. You would think that the folks who write for these shows would realize that. When a show continues to chip away at a core family, what reason is there to continue to watch it? When a show continues to reduce a beloved family like the Abbots into nothing more than an organ bank for the Newmans, can someone please explain to my why I shouldn’t complain about that? We viewers should accept that and be excited about what’s to come? Hardly.

    The storyline is compelling,maybe because it is so very very sad (that said, also derivative). Take a bow, Billy J. Miller! He rocked Friday’s episode.

    Here’s the thing. Writers need to remember the facts of life. Sex can lead to pregnancy. Children are born. And they grow up. IN THEIR OWN TIME! A little bit of SORASing is fine but Y&R has taken it to silly extremes. And writers, if you are going to ahve a child born into the story, then have a plan for that child. Truth this, kids often are not engaging in storylines. Then, don’t use them OR better yet, use them in ways that are realistic. Plots that show the challenges, the issues parents and schoolagers face these days. A little comic relief perhpas. Kids as catalysts for other stories.

    I really like Adam with Chelsea but I loved her with Mac. I like so many am really upset about Dede. I understand the actress took a role on the new sitcom “The Millers”. Why this time she could not be replaced is beyond me. Why not knock off Sharon and take her corneas? Adam could have hit her with a car and so many stories could have come out of that one. I do not see her as being needed on the show. Except all shows have a crazy. If they keep Sharon I hope they are smart enough to replace Phyllis and bring her back so she can finish Sharon off. Billy tore me up today and he will always blame himself…not fair. This seems like a “cut and dry” case for the viewers so I am really wondering if it was Nicki and not Adam that hit her. We still have no idea why they showed Nicki driving her car on the same road. hmmm. Time will tell.

It’s a nice way for him to go out. He gets to hang his hat on what I think he told which is; a really controversial, interesting, character-driven story.

Josh’s “beautiful farewell” is a blatent rip off of Guza, MM can spin all he wants, go to YT and watch it!

    Well I am not in favor of killing a child just for a quick dramatic influx to a dying show. And although Faith isn’t exactly a model child, saying they should have killed her makes no sense either– what they should do is find a more creative way to make the show exciting other than going for something so primal to our beings. No child, even a fictional one is more deserving of death over another—- As for Connor I agreed this angle of Delia being his donor if it comes to fruition was an unnecessary side story — the story was heart wrenching enough without throwing another child’s sight into it. If they wanted to do that story it should have been separate from the Delia one. Or maybe they could have thought long term and actually let Connor go blind and tell the story of what is like for parents raising child who is visually impaired– they could have gone the classy route on this one, but didn’t. But that is lazy writing fault, so lets not throw another innocent child character under the bus– who knows if enough people say it– they might actually write it thinking that is what we want– and what most of us want is for them not to kill children on soaps to cover up the fact they can’t write a decent story without going to this extreme or do it just to get a good Emmy reel for the show.

She did a great job, had a cute witty charm that was fun to watch. I did not feel that the death of Delia was as well written as Cassie’s death was, and feel let down that it played out the way that it did. There could have been some much better scenes with the strong characters involved. There are so many places that this story line can take us now and I look forward to some new character dynamics. I like the new slightly softer side of Adam, and look forward to seeing more. Billy and Chloe will have very new circumstances to face, and there is an opportunity for Nick and Sharon to step in to help console them. I do not like the Sharon character anymore, and cannot realistically imagine her with either Nick or Adam.

    I think it’s a great storyline , first with Adam’s son and Chelsea’s baby with Billy being half brother’s, that will build into a rivalry for years to come.A great storyline, more Adam which we love! One big problem Josh did. He NEVER should have taken Delia, Sophie Pollono off Y&R, they lost a delightful, talented, fun to watch little actress! Someone else will pick that little girl up for another show. It’s just sad that this story could have played out wonderfully without the death of DD! I am not happy with this choice. I would approve of this storyline but NOT the death of Delia, a bad idea. Summer was changed, Faith was changed, very bad decision, the first Faith was angelic and very talented. Abby was only Emme Ryan((hope I have the name right) She was the character, no one else should have been cast. They should have had Abby move to NY with Ashley. It is her MOTHER! Too many cast changes and the death of Mrs. Chancellor was enough this season. I am very bothered by Delia not being on the show. Viewer’s have children, many of them do and we like to see the families together dealing with life’s ordeal’s. I loved watching Delia getting ready for her play with her cute dog. I sometimes wonder who these writer’s think we are? All single ppl? C’mon Y&R, you messed up on the death of Delia. And it’s a cheap shot just to use her death & just happen to be able to use her eyes! That’s a newborn baby. DD is 6 yrs. old or so, I’m not a Dr but something tells me her eyes may be too large for a newborn?? Too much change is never good and you have done too much lately. I can’t stand the Hillary storyline, it’s ridiculous, redundant , and over. Delia’s play was more exciting, it was real, what crazy Hillary does is plain boring, the acting isn’t up to par for the show. My time is valuable, when I watch my DVR recording’s I will delete Y&R and not watch if this gets childish. I am very upset about Delia! It’s bad enough how the aging of the kids happens without warning! One day the child’s in preschool then they are off to GCU! Really? I should have been a writer. I would not be boring, redundant, and plain silly!
    One example -Summer and Fen, they were 9 -10 yrs old and the next week in high school!This happens to ALL the kids on this show. They need to age normally like everyone else. That’s a big problem with the show has had for years! I hope writers listen because I know dozen’s of other ppl who feel the same way as I do! This isn’t hard, let’s get these stories’s right and let the actors do there best work. And when you have writers block stop killing ppl to avoid writing another storyline. Heck, I would help write the storyline with you,I guarantee you would love what you read! I hope things start looking up for the show. TOO MUCH death, its daytime drama, not daytime death! Otherwise Y&R Will be like all the shows that are no longer on the air. It takes awhile to gain viewer’s but it’s much harder to keep them

    I really hate that Delia had to die, but I love seeing Adam, Billy, Victoria along with Chloe, Kevin, Jack and so on have such great material to sink their teeth into. I just hope nobody else is going to die on Y&R anytime soon. Many fans are very upset with the death of a child. The young actress who plays Delia is so adorable and very talented and fans are going to miss her terribly.

    josh had a year to copy a story GH did in 2011 when JFP was EP? The only thing he has changed is the gender of the child! When Liz Webber was told about Jake on GH she fell to the ground, no dialogue, the audience saw this through a pane of glass, ff tp Y&R 2013 Chloe is told about Delia, guess what? She falls to the ground,,etc etc etc.. So Josh needed a year to replicate GH 2.0? And guess what Jake’s kidney was donated to his 2nd cousin Josslyn, and I am going to take a wild guess and say Delia’s cornia’s will be going to Connor! Again, Josh needed a year for this when he just could had asked JFP after all she was at GH when Guza wrote the Jake storyline. Let me go out on a limb and say I think Adam being the driver will be a red herring and the real driver will be a suprise just like Luke was on GH.

Ashley is gone, Phyliss is gone and Sharon is a raving lunatic, what next?

    No proof yet that it was Adam. Also he didn’t hit the dog – it ran off down the road and Adam was relieved he had missed it. Probably Delia had already been hit by an unknown person as its unlikely to have been Nikky who was also on that same road. It will be some time before we find out who actually hit Delia. I hope it doesn’t turn out to be Adam as I love the character.

    The Y&R throughout the years have dealt with many real life issues in a very realistic manner until now. I think this story line is disgusting and the soap that I have loved for many years is becoming increasingly trashy. I am saddened that instead of bringing awareness to a disease and the treatment options as Y&R has done so tactfully with other diseases in the past, the writers choose to kill off a character as the solution. Kudos to the actors for doing such a wonderful job with very very bad writing. This fan is taking a Y&R break……………

    Linda, you have summed up beautifully what is bothering me so much about this storyline. It’s ridiculous, with no redeeming value. Sure, it will ignite another Abbott/Newman feud, but at what cost to those viewers who are invested in the show, the characters and the actors? Surely there are other ways to do it without sacrificing yet another Abbott, and worse, harvesting more body parts for a Newman. Really? Come on, we deserve better than this.

    I’m well aware that children die everyday, what has that to do with this? It’s more about different execs and writers dropping in on a show and having their way with it. It’s self-centered at best. Thoughtful change is good, this is not. I think it was the easy and lazy way out. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I have not read all of the comments, but I have read enough to know that some people have decided to back off on watching the show because of the storyline. Maybe it is just as well that they do. They seem to have forgotten that this IS A SOAP OPERA and NOT real. These are actors playing a part and some of them are doing D_ _ _ fantastic jobs doing so or they wouldn’t have gotten such a reaction out of all of you. I don’t like the storyline any more than any of you, but I can also see past some of it and understand that some of this, as unpleasant and unwelcome as it is does happen to people in real life and they have no choice but to deal with the hand that life dealt them. Children get sick and some don’t recover, children are in accidents and some of them don’t recover. Families suffer tragic circumstances and sometimes they make it through and sometimes they fall apart and break-up. If you think it is heart-breaking to see it happen on a soap, then put yourself in the place of someone who has experienced or is experiencing it and who doesn’t get to turn off the TV or quite recording and wait for it to all blow over. Take the feelings you are having now towards these characters and show someone REAL who is truly hurting some compassion and reach out to them in their hour(s) of need.

    It’s a twist of fate that Connor gets Delia’s corneas. That poor blind baby, Adam loves his son very much. I think Adam and Chelsea will reunite to be a family. They’re great together.

    Saying that having another child at home is not a good response. That child that was at home never will replace the child that was lost. That hole will be there forever and nothing will ever “fill” that hole.

    This is the absolute worst storyline that I have seen and I hate it. That is a testament to the incredible acting that the actors and actresses are portraying and that is the blessing in this – it is acting and not real. My heart goes out to all families who have experienced the pain of losing a loved one under any circumstances. Those are true losses and true pain.

But I am really starting to hate Victor. He is such a jerk! I also want Chelsea and Adam to end up together. Chelsea was good for him. I do not like that they always have to use the same characters to create tragedy. Why would it have to be Delia that had to die to give Connor his eyes?!

    He’s obviously excited to act in the story, which I get.

    There should be no anger directed toward him OR the character for that matter as on the show it clearly was an accident. He only saw the dog and swerved to miss it. AND he stopped to be sure he hadn’t hit the dog.

    Even though I’m upset about the story, one good thing that has come from it IS the backlash that Sony/CBS/Kent/McDaniel and Phelps are getting over it. I hope they all take a lesson from the YR fans that this type of thing is not tolerated and could impact the viewership of the show potentially. This story which obviously was done to spike ratings could end up having the opposite effect.

    Social media is much more available for negative backlash than it was just a few years ago when John, Brad and then Colleen were killed off. Keep voicing your concerns.

    I doubt very much that this was Josh Griffith’s idea of a storyline. This has Jill Farren Phelps written all over it. She is the executive producer and surely she saw the undeniable similarities ( an exact carbon copy ) with the Jake Spencer hit and run on GH ( where she was the EP at the time ). That particular storyline was extremely unpopular and angered the fans, which contributed to her firing from GH in 2011.

    I don’t know that I have ever seen anything stated that they did this “just to find corneas for Conner” The real story is what the effect is on so many of the interconnected characters and how each person will be dealing with it. What strengths will come out of it that they weren’t aware of before, what weaknesses will be discovered? How will they handle the anger and the guilt over what has happened and the things that are said in a time of stress can carry consequences for a very, very long time? While I have said that I don’t like the storyline, I think the story writers have done an incredible job and the actors and actresses have equally done an incredible job to have so many people worked up and angry about a fictitious storyline. They wouldn’t be doing their job very well if they hadn’t.

Someone suggested make it Nikki, come on, poor long suffering Nikki?? Things I would get rid of….the stupid Hillary story. And please, please put Summer back with her right family the Newmans. Ship Sharon off to an asylum for a while. I don’t mind John A. as a ghost, but one per show is enough. You have Cassie acting totally unCassie, so put the poor girl to rest.

Maybe it will be that the first hit was what killed her and Adam will get off. Nikki can blame it on her MS. Remember this is just a show and all the hatred emails out there are crazy. I know you love a character, but the writers do the best they can when a character leaves without notice. The actress that played Delia is now on the new sitcom “The Millers”. I know they could have re-cast, but this is what they feel is the best direction. Let’s see this play out and then decide if it is good or bad. Loyal fan through the good and the bad.

    I think viewers are really tired of Billy and Adam always having bad luck. Can they be happy and normal for more than two episodes? REALLY? They turned Sharon into a head case when they killed off her daughter and now her character is disliked when she used to be the good one. Phyllis was the psycho remember? Actually Phyllis’ character was always a psycho. But, anyway, are they going to drive Adam and Billy crazy now. It would’ve been nice to see ONE child actor grow up on the show…without being aged 10 years in one summer btw.

    I hate this story, hate them killing off children. Give Adam a break, he needs some good in his life. They showed Nikki on the same road as Adam. She has been out of it since Katherine died, and now to find out Dylan is her son. A lot to carry on her unstable mind at this time. I believe it was Nikki.

    I think they will figure out the Adam was driving the car that struck DeeDee and she will have donated her corneas to Connor. Dylan is going to find out that he was adopted so he will be more forgiving to his marriage. Adam will go to jail and Dylan and Chelsea will reunite. Can’t wait to see this plays out.

    I thought I hated this story, but reconsidered. I want Adam to end up not being the person that hit Delia. If Nikki did it, that works for me. She will get help that Adam probably wouldn’t.
    Here are a list of my wants. :)
    I want Adam to be innocent of this tragic death. I want Chelsea to stick by Adam, and I want them back together. I think they make a great couple, partly because of the things in their past, but also for their ability to understand each other. I think Adam still loves her, and I want Adam nowhere near Sharon. Sharon is a non entity in my book. If she was ever a decent character, she isn’t now. That brings me to Phyllis. Recast Phyllis. I know it will be hard to fill M S’s shoes, but do something. Otherwise, I believe we will lose other characters related to Phyllis. If there is anyone that can play this part even close to Michelle Stafford, I want them. Phyllis is a major character, unlike Delia. Sad as it is to see a child die, because it is a soap, I can live with that easier than a fully developed character. I believe this story is why they trotted out the character of Delia so much lately. They wanted to hook us and hook they did. I cannot even begin to think of watching Cloe screaming at everyone, because I know she will. Normal, maybe, but she is such a witch.
    I want Billy to have a real wife so she doesn’t turn on him for his mistakes. I don’t know if Victoria is ever going to be what Billy needs. I love the two together, and think they have great chemistry, but Victoria really irritates me so much of the tims. (By the way, who has an ice cream store in the mittle of nowhere? The place looked like an old house to me. )
    Now, for the biggest thing I want. I want Victor the bully to finally get put in his place. He believes He is the only person that can call the shots, and I am sick of his “you got that” line. Writers, get him off the same old lines.
    Back to Adam. I wish Nick and Victoria would stop hating him. It started from the time he came to town. No matter what Adam would have done, they were so jealous and petty, he would not have caught a break. I think they act like BRATS.
    Oh, and if they were ever not going to kill off a child, Cassey would have been a keeper. They could have had her gone, in a special hospital for a long time, and recast. Or they could have waited for the actress to come back. Whatever.
    I do believe people die, and children are more expendable, on a soap, just not real life. We didn’t see Morgan Corinthos for several years, and what they brought back was a self entitled, hateful, misserable excuse for a human. OK, he is interesting, sort of. LOL

    an old house in the middle of nowhere turned into a store selling ice cream – in rural areas that isn’t too uncommon, especially that area of WI

    @Chloe. I think she has a right to scream. She is not switch for mooring her dead child. Anyone who has lost a child will identify. If that is how people feel about grieving mother, no wonder that are broken and contemplate suicide. There is Nothing worse in this world than losing you child. She is accurately doing this role. I am not critisising but speaking from. Experience.. I agree hating the fact that Victor always has to make sure he has the last word. When he finds out about Nikki’s child I fear he will make her miserable and the marriage will end as usual . Good incite Anne

    I knew Friday this would be sad, but Monday and Tuesday had me crying all day. I know this is just a show-but it brought back a very sad memory. I just can’t believe another death on Y@R. Adam is a wonderful actor-we are seeing that esp. now. We are raising two grandchildren; I couldn’t wait until they got home so I could hold them. I have a feeling this is going to be a long sad story line. I to, think it was probably Nikki. Yes give Adam a break! I was not expecting this after Mrs. C and Phyllis. That little girl was so precious in her role. If I were her parent, I could not watch what happened. Also, learn from this- never leave a child in the car alone. Many a time, I had to take 4 children in a store in the rain-at least they were safe. Maybe this will be a positive piece that shows how quick things can happen. Did the actors cry real tears? Seems would be easy.

    I don’t get all these comments from people who think Y&R had no choice but to write Delia out due to the actress leaving. Soaps don’t write small children out of the show when the actor or actress leaves. They recast, just like they recast Faith recently, because the child who played her was unavailable. And if Delia had survived and the actress who played her never got another role, she would have been replaced eventually anyway, because soaps love to rapidly age kids.

    I have loved Adam since his arrival on Y&R. Over time he has basically only shown one side of himself. But his change was a very slow process. He has shown that he does love and truly love. When this storyline began, I knew it would be intense. Although some people will say and have already said on the show, how could anyone do that to a child. It wasn’t purposely done. Also now that Adam realizes that it was he who did it, more of Adam’s tenderness is coming to the surface. I have been crying for three days over this storyline. I am sure I will have many more tears in the Times to come. Y&R has always been excellent at pulling and tearing at the heart. I almost can’t wait for the storyline to come to a head.

    One thing I forgot to mention. Adam may not have been the one who hit Delia. Nikki also came down that road. But of course, let’s blame Adam. He is already in so much torment. Which also brings more tension to the story. I really hope it was not Adam. But because the way the storyline is going, Adam will go through much sorrow and change even more, because he has a child of his own now.

I loved him and Chelsea together but now with this heavy story line who knows……..Sharon is a nut, at least for now! Bring Phyllis back and what about the possibility of Adam and Avery? Sometimes Avery plays out to be Adam’s only friend. It use to be Sharon but since she’s playing on/off with her meds, she’s looney and needs to pay her own dues. The accident with Adam and Delia was just that – an accident. It’s not like he maliciously set-out to take Delia’s life but I’m sure that’s how it will play out with him going to any extreme to get his son an eye transplant. Jack is more like a father to Adam than Victor. Don’t even get me started on that self-righteous, Victor. I’m ready for good things to happen to Adam!!! It’s sooooooo sweet to see him interact with baby Connor and their super, adorable, sweet smiles! Team Adam all the way!!!!

    Michael Muhney/Adam is my favorite on Y&R. So many want to hate him, but as tough as his charactor seems to be it is just a wall he puts up, he actually has a heart filled with kindness and love. I used to love Victor, (I’ve been watching for about 30 years) he was shrewd, but not the heartless prick they have him as today. The more they have him treat Adam like crap, the more I love Adam. Adam has trust issues, just don’t get on his bad side and you’ll be fine! I think the reason they have Nikki sticking up for Billy, Adam, etc. is not just because she is looking/found her son, but because they will eventually figure out that she was the one that hit Delia, somehow. Adam stopped because he thought he hit the dog that he saw. Stopped, saw the dog was fine and kept going….We would all do the same from what they showed us happened. Not his fault, but an accident if Nikki is not involved….
    My wants…I want Adam with Chelsea together. I want Avery to go away, (Nick needs to stop acting like a girl) WTH is wrong with her goody, goody BS? I would have liked them to bump Sharon off to donate her cornias rather than Delia….Sharon makes me want to puke! Actually now that I think of it, a lot of the charactors could go…..Maybe I am just tired of the lame, very lame story lines. Not a fan of the Winters family either. How boring are they….?

    This is fiction, story telling.
    soaps are about drama and tragedies not happy times (that last for more than 2-3 weeks)
    tragedies create/feed story lines and give great drama for an year and then someone else will die and give us more drama..
    AMC; Agnes Nixon killed Brooks daughter by a hit and run driver, way way back in time..
    (possibly the first child killed by hit and run driver on the soaps which all have had child deaths..)

    What I keep reading is how you all are watching a drama but you don’t expect it to be dramatic. Seriously, kids die, let’s bring some awareness and support to Y&R for this accurate portrayal of a horrible subject. If you need a kidney and the hospital you are closest to suddenly gets one you’ll probably get it. Same for the corneas. Chelsea was blue that someone’s loved one would have to pass away for her son to be helped. Think about how Tracy felt when giving Colleen’s heart to Victor. This is drama, it is realistic, don’t watch and don’t complain about why you’re not watching as if we can help you.

    I agree. I have been a Y&R fan since the very beginning. Yes the storyline is tragic. But what I don’t understand is how some are threatening to stop watching because of the death of Delia. In real life a child is killed daily by cars and by other means. Yes, it is a soap, but it can’t always be about the rich folk with money just cheating on their spouses. Some real life instances have to be included, or it would just be a boring soap. These things happen in real life every day. And Y&R is JUST a soap. Y&R has always been entertaining in one way or another. Right now it is full of sorrow. I have been crying every day since Delia got hit. I guess I will be crying till this storyline is over. Y&R is giving us realism. These things do happen. And the cast of Y&R is excellent in displaying emotions.

    I think you have missed the obvious point we all are trying to make… Stop picking on Adam, if you’ve watched the episode where Delia was hit Adam stopped to make sure the dog was alright he did or see Delia behind the bushes which by the way made no sense that she stayed behind the bushes instead of running after her dog. Adam has changed from the terrible character you writers made him when he first came to the show. He fell in love with Chelsea and they married why couldn’t they have had their son and put Victor out of their lives.. So there was NO HIt and RUN

    I think this is a powerful plotline for the Y&R. I’ve watched this show for almost the entire time it’s been on. I’ve never been as affected by the writing as I have been in the last few days. The death of Cassie became the moral issue of DUI but thiscase wit Delia has no cause; no sense. The death of even a fictional child is shocking and frankly, this fan was shocked! None of the characters on the show right now are happy. No one is enjoying life. When I come home from work, I watch this and want to see at least one character be happy! Who is happy right now? I don’t think I’ve ever seen this show sink as low as it has in the last week. The death of “Kathryn” wasn’t this bad but it was was quite recent. I think the writers should have created this trauma a bit later in the season. Sorry, I’m not sold, no matter how great the acting is right now! This is just too sad.

    Michael is doing a great acting performance ; he should be rewarded with more storyline. However, Adam shouldn’t become the scapegoat for everyone’s problems.
    I do believe that Victoria and Nick have lived the privileged life too long on the show. At first, I was upset with Adam’s behavior when he lied about Faith; however, he hasn’t done any worse than Nick who turned his father in to the Feds. I consider him as being a Judas; nevertheless, Victor has forgiven him and moved forward. Do the writers enjoy trashing Adam ? Everyone seems to pick at him by making nasty and belittling comments; characters who have just arrived on the show say means things.
    At some point , the people with shady pasts should remember the evil things that they’ve done in their lives and become more forgiving: Examples- Nikki, Chloe, Chelsea, Billy, Kevin , Victor and others.
    The writers of these stories should show more morals when writing. Why would Chloe be allowed to convince Chelsea that it’s okay to lie about a baby’s paternity ?Not only that , but make it seem as if it’s right; plus, the residents in Genoa City agree
    because it’s Adam’s child! Does anybody go to church in Genoa City? Evidently not!
    I know that we read each others comments , but does Young and the Restless executives or writers see them?
    It’s only Soap ; however, we do have our strong opinions as fans! Please listen to us!

    I love watching this show. I dont’t know what direction the show is going in. I cant wait till everyone finds out about Sharon. I think little Delia should have went to boarding school and when she came back grown up. Killing the children off is sad. Jack is going to be disappointed and angry that his friend Adam kill his niece and didn’t say a word. Rose’s daughter should mourn her mom and leave Neil and his family alone. Maybe Victoria Rowell will come back to play his wife. I would like Dylan and Avery and Adam and Chelsea and Kevin and Chloe get back together. Another idea is the doctor never told Billy that his daughter was dead. The writers could have wrote that she was in a coma instead of being killed off. Why little Delia had to die off so baby Connor could have her cornea. Maybe there be another donor. Chloe and Billy are going to be upset Adam and Chelsea, Hoping for better storylines.

    I’m waiting for “Little Moses” to come back and be Victor’s long lost child. All of the characters have had major roles lately. The stories have show all their acting talent. I think Niki is getting a little flakey. Where the heck is Phylllis? Making a movie? I still like Adam the best, tall, handsome and mighty fine looking.

    This is aweful for the writers to kill of little Delia…what could they be thinking. This could have been done many ways, but to do this after the tragedy of Mrs C death for real, how could they think this would be a pull for watchers…it only makes the loss more tragic. So sorry I watch this show. Maybe I will switch.

    Have to laugh at everyone. Been watching for over 30 yrs. Have seen people come and go and usually replaced with people whom I don’t really care too much about because the original characters were better. I though Delia was a phenomenal young actress, I hate to see her go. Cassie disgusts me in the role she now plays. John Abbott must get paid well for his appearances as a Ghost. I think they all have some sort or mental instability, if they aren’t drinking or on drugs, they are prostituting on day time TV..Just when you think it can’t get any worse it does. I have a DVR so its not a to do list, its a when nothing else is on show..Paul Williams and Katherine Chancelor (RIP) have to be the best of course along with Esther..lol

    Y&R has been there done that. Killed off Colleen, Victor gets her heart. Adam does something and doesn’t fess up. Victor acts like he never makes a mistake, but you let Billy leave Delia in the car and Victor sits in judgement. He won’t say anything about Adam hitting her. It was obvious when Delia got hit, that she was gonna die so Connor could get his transplant.
    Another thing, they had all these other plots going on , Laurens confession, Jill going on her scavenger hunt, Victor being mad at Jack and Adam, Adam being accused of rape, Phyllis being sick, Summer’s paternity and the Winters family troubles. Why not write about that stuff?
    As a father of two girls, I would hate to think of this happening to my kids. This is not entertainment. There’s enough tragedy in real life, we shouldn’t have to watch this. This whole week has been sad and dark.

    I always loved Adam and always thought he was a good person beside his gorgeous
    looks..I am not fond of all the bullies starting with ungrateful victor for whom Adam took
    a bullet.Nick,Victoria, Billy and Chloe are despicable people for being so inhumane
    towards Adam.Did teary Chloe forget all the harm she did by constantly pushing Chelsea
    to deny Adam’s paternity. all ugly, nasty people except for Avery and Adam.If Adam leaves
    or is convicted I am no longer watching the YR. I love you Adam ,you are the best and without you there will be no YR.So please,please stay.

    The writing on this show has gone so far downhill it isn’t even funny. Killing off the best child actress so the baby can get her eyes so we can focus on Adam is nuts. Delia had leukemia so now Connor is going to get leukemia? The latest batch of writing has forgotten about the history of their characters. Leukemia patients cannot donate organs or tissues. And so no life support? No goodbye scene? It was so bad.Are we to believe that little Delia’s grandparents would act like this? The whole story makes no sense. And Billy’s portrayal.. is terrible. I love his character but I don’t get it. We already loved Adam. He could have shown his humanity with his own son. No need for this terrible storyline The mustache has epilepsy so why is he drinking all the time and where is his dog? There are so many paternity stories going on at once it’s become a joke. And the whole KleptoSharHo story is beyond sad. Fast forward is the new mode. No wonder General Hospital overtook them in the ratings. Get rid of Jill ( the new honcho) and you might be able to save this sinking ship.

    Well…I believe killing off Delia was only in keeping with the “norm” of Y&R. Genoa City is NOT a good place to raise children! So many have been written off in past years; Cassie, Reid, Lucy (bet you forgot all about her, huh?), etc., and now Delia. If you paid attention to her role character, you would’ve seen this coming. Suddenly she had SO many scenes and her script sort of “threw” her into teenager mode while still being visible as a young child. We saw too much of her for them to write her into boarding school and return as a young adult and what not. She is quite the actress though…clap-clap!

    You gotta admit, though, Y&R takes the award for “Best-dressed Ghosts ever!” I’ll stay tuned only to one day see the character of Victor Newman have to suffer deep and long because, right now, they have him a few angels short of god. He needs to be brought down a peg or two and Billy and or Adam have to rescue him. Nick makes me SICK! The only type of man he’s trying to be is one that sleeps with every female he comes to know. One more thing…is it just me or does anyone else notice that before Nick says his lines, he bows his head down slightly left and he does it the entire time he’s speaking. Sometimes…SOME-TIMES you can find a real Laugh-Out-Loud moment.

    I myself have been a fan of the Y&R for over 20 years. 2 weeks ago, I stopped watching. The show use to be intriguing and almost real but then came the ghost, and the twin sisters/brothers. When they killed off Delia to nail Adam, who is taking a terrible beat down it caused me to say enough already! The storylines drag on and on and on. For a moment I thought they’d have Sharon sleeping with her son. Afterall, she has slept with everybody. They will probably bring her (Delia) back as a ghost, along with John and Sheila, and Sheila’s kids, and Ricky, and Lauren’s twins. Enough already!!! Is the new head writer responsible, or did the old head writer knew he had really irritated alot of fans?

    I really don’t want this to end up on Adam’s shoulders. I’m hoping he came along after Delia was taken to the hospital. Adam has been searching for love from his family for so long, and being a father has changed his perspective on life. As for the people who don’t like a child being killed off a show, it happens all the time. While I didn’t find this as heart-wrenching as when Cassie died, it was sad. I just reminded myself that, after all, this is a TV show. However, people lose children every day, so it’s a good depiction of the pain and agony they endure forever. Good going Y&R. I’ve watched since 1973!

    This Adam character has been so wounded, and crushed by his father that it has finally warped him. He may think that he wants to and will be a good father, but he is as power and control driven as Victor and when he has the chance to love he has never been there. In the long run of this prescious baby’s life, Adam will be just like Victor – controlling, manipulating, and belittling this child once it is no longer a cuddly sick baby, but a grown child.

    I look at this story line as being long term and the reason for Delia’s death and subsequently Connor getting her cornea’s is that the hit and run will not be solved until Connor is older and starts having visions of the accident because he will see it through Delia’s eyes.

    The death of Delia is very realistic. It is great to see how each character reacts to her death, as in real life. What great storytelling, unfortunately very depressing, but this is life. The acting has been SUPERB by each and everyone of them. It will be difficult to see who gets the Emmys for this storyline. The actors have had to be emotionally spent by the events that have occurred and still to occur with Adam’s involvment. Will he fess up or will he end up committing suicide as a resut of his actions? Can’t wait to see how it all plays out. Hoping that Adam is cleared as he had no idea, Delia was on the other side of the car. Hopefully, he will have good lawyer representation!!! Great acting.

No matter what he brings in on the set about his opinions he brings a greatness to his fan base portrayal of his character and I believe the decision should be reversed. I also believe that Billy Miller should also be allowed to go on other projects and be able to come back to the Y & R to act his part when he is able. Soap Operas are a dying breed and when you have such a great show why bring other people who are not with the experience and the greatness that was there before them.

    I agree with you, Lee. I believe Adam to be innocent. But, I also understand Billy’s anger….both of them are on a guilt-trip and an emotional roller coaster. If truth be known, Billy is much more to blame than anyone else on the road that night. What parent leaves a young child alone in a car in the company of a dog? If Adam were the one to hit Delia, well….he certainly had no idea he did so. We all saw that. But Billy’s guilt is eating away at him. Such a weighty burden and unbearable anguish compel him to lash out at Adam…that, and the fact that from all appearances, Adam is guilty. Both characters are to be pitied, but as humans, we want someone to pay, innocent or not. I suppose this will not end well….great excuse to kill two birds with one stone, that is, Billy and Adam.

    I wish they had not killed Adam. This takes me further away from Y & R a soap I have watched for 40 years! Goddbye Y & R, I don’t like your head writer!!!!!!!!!!

    No way I believe that Adam killed Dee Dee. I don’t blame him for being afraid to go to the police, people in that town hate him and will want him crucified even though he didn’t see her, did not feel an impact and if he did, it was an accident. Well that’s not good enough for the high and mighty hypocrites of Genoa City. Their sins will always be forgiven, but not Adams, oh we can’t have that! I loved when Adam did a surprise visit during the church funeral and started listing the Newman sins! That and when Vic was in his car and he said need a ride Ms. Daisy! LMAO!! MM, you are the only Adam for me. If you’re not on it, I’m not watching it! You are loved.

    I love the show. I have been watching Y&R since day one. I am really upset by Michael Muhney’ s dismissal. We knew that Billy Miller wanted some t ime off to explore more options in his acting career. He was given an ultimatum either or. Michael Muhney had no warning. He was just axed. I don’t like how they are just taking cast favorites and giving them the boot. At first Adam was disliked by everyone. As time passed, he became a favorite. But it seems as though what fans want does not matter. Y&R is still my soap.com Who they need to get rid of is Jill Phelps or whatever her name is. Everyone , probably the cast too, doesn’t like her….we hate what she is doing.
