This past week it was The Young and the Restless who moved its best story along with the reveal that Sharon has not been seeing visions of her deceased daughter Cassie, but in fact has been duped by an imposter at the hands of Victor Newman!
And that set in motion some powerful work by the foursome involved in this storyline from the CBS soap opera! In key scenes where Nick has brought the Cassie lookalike to Sharon (after he cornered her when he caught the dead-ringer for Cassie peering through the window at Abby and Tyler’s soiree and confronted her privately), the emotional fallout provided the impetus for some great work, especially from Sharon Case (Sharon).
Imagine playing the heartbreak of seeing someone that looks like the daughter who you lost years ago, and realizing you were not seeing things, but were being set-up? And then there was Eric Braeden as Victor Newman! Despite being painted into a corner by son Nick, who really let dear old dad have it for gaslighting Sharon just like Adam did to Ashley, Victor let Nick know that no matter what … Sharon will hurt him! Sharon has a big secret!
Nick (Joshua Morrow) tells his father he wants nothing more to do with him. Later, alone in a somber and touching moment, Victor recalls happier times with his son through use of a flashback, about providing to his family all the things that Victor never had growing up. We felt the anguish from both sides of the Newman men, played by Braeden and Morrow.
As for Camryn Grimes (Faux Cassie), she is so intriguing to watch! You saw the Cassie imposter’s sympathy towards Sharon, her feeling of guilt for what she had done, and yet she is still caught up in some plot. What is driving this girl? What is her secret? Who is she? First, we knew she was working with Victor, but then with who else? Who was on the other end of the call she made on Wednesday’s episode? Look for more fireworks on Monday when Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) finds out Victor’s plot against Sharon via Nick!
So for their work this past week, On-Air On-Soaps names The Young and the Restless Sharon Case, Eric Braeden, Joshua Morrow, and Camryn Grimes the Power Performances of the Week! Now let us know, what did you think of their mighty performances?
