Is Y&R's Cane Dead or What? – EW.com takes a look!

Y&R Fans are broken-hearted, confused, and have started enormous petition signings all over the recent February death of their beloved Cane Ashby played by the sexy and talented, Daniel Goddard.   The scenes in question happened on the February 2nd airshow when poor Cane was shot to death and into a very bloody pulp, excessively bloody in our opinion!  Now remember prior to the shooting, Cane was on his way to stop the wedding of his father, Colin to Jill and had left a note for his wife, Lily and a videotaped message to their twins, saying he had to leave for awhile. ( But what does awhile mean? forever?)

This week the funeral scenes aired and a grieving Lily sees Cane in her bed and has a chit-chat with him over the service and how his friends and pseudo-family honored him.  So the question next becomes: “Is Lily going bonkers? Is Cane now in ghost mode?  Is this all a ruse and in typical Y&R fashion the dead aren’t the dead, and Cane set the whole thing up, faked his death, to protect everyone? Did the writers love Tristan Rogers portrayal of Colin so much that they decided to go with his story and lying to Jill and everyone else over Cane’ story? Or, could Colin have been in on it too?” Who knows!!

EW.com got some inside information about the status of Goddard by relating, “A source close to the sudser said that Goddard remains a paid employee of Y&R until further notice (or until they’re officially ready to boot him). He’s not only set to reprise his role as Cane in the Feb. 18 and 23 episodes, but he’ll make additional appearances in March and April. What’s more, no one on the show will even acknowledge whether his character is actually six feet under. CBS ain’t saying, but this has to be good news for those fans (with nothing better to do) who decided to start a petition to save the Sydney-born Goddard, who’s been on the sudser since 2007. Hold onto your John Hancock, kids; He might not be heading to the unemployment office just yet.”

So what do you think soapers?   Is  Goddard really coming back? Let us know your thoughts!

What could have been the BEST SL MAB has done since she took over (and Josh left) has, with the Murder of Cane, become one of the WORST ever written, and Y&R Fans are suffering for it. This SL had such potential for so many characters and would have had far reaching effects if JILL had been the one murdered–Katherine, Lily/Cane, Colin, Billy, Tucker, Lauren–hell even Sofia and FauxMalcolm could have been part and parcel of the SL fallout but NO!! MAB did what she has wanted to do since Josh’s firing–DESTROY LANE, completely disregarding what the Fans wanted; prefering… Read more »

I couldn’t agree more!!!!!! MAB Has royally screwed up the whole Y&R.Canes is the only storyline on there that is fresh, new and interesting. I think the whole bunch should be fired and start over from scratch. Bill Bell is probably turning over in his grave because of what they have done to this show. I’ve watched since the first day it aired but if Daniel isn’t brought back and given a GOOD front burner story I will never watch it again. None of the other s/l’s are interesting enough to watch. I watched them before while i was waiting… Read more »

Ruby, make no mistake! Lily and Cane Ashby, through all the lousy, lazy writing and photocopying of script done by MAB since her Regime took over still are HANDS DOWN the Couple to watch on The Yuck and The Ridiculous, thanks to the OUTSTANDING Acting abilities of Christel and Daniel and, of course, the Pretty and the Sexy only they can bring to Romance on Daytime! MAB needs to stop treating Y&R like its her own little fiefdom for HER enjoyment and remember it is THE FANS that control this Business. Hell we all have Home Vids to watch but… Read more »

ICAM WF4W!! I think that we’ve dedicated ourselves to this show long enough, while being blatently disrespected in the process. This show has become a joke, and the only reason it has remained at the “top” of the soap world is because of the people that have dedicated so much of their lives to watching, it has pretty much become routine and no matter what happens they will watch. It’s insulting to think as a fan that the people that actually make their living off of your veiwing actually make it painfully obvious they care NOTHING about what you think.… Read more »

You said it all and said it so well.Daniels fans won’t stop until the right people hear us.Tthe writers insult our intelligence with the garbage they feed us.The only story line they had going that made you want to tune in was Cane/Lily , so what did they do they end ed it in a horrible way that has left their fans heart broken.Won’t rest until Daniel is back or we follow him wherever he goes.Thank you for picking up on this story.

So glad to see you have picked up on this story. Us fans are so hoping Daniel Goddard will still be playing Cane Ashby when all this suspense is said and done. Y&R will be losing a lot of long time viewers, if he in fact is gone.

Thank you, for picking this story up!! We really appreciate it! We want Daniel Goddard back on the show as Cane Ashby alive and well. I also feel like his fans deserve a great story line to back it up but I will take anything except for a ghost/twin/figment of Lily’s imagination. This plot had so much potential with the addition of Tristan Rogers and those Y&R people BLEW it! Anyway, thanks again!

Thank you for picking up on this story! I agree with what everyone has said. Cane’s story line was the best on the show and was getting better and interesting every day. It made no sense to kill off Cane as he was pivotal to the story. Ever since MAB took over, she has been trying to destroy Cane and Lily (Lane)! MAB finally got her opportunity even though Lane is a fan favorite and has been #1 in the various polls in the soap magazines. MAB and the writers don’t care what the fans want. They just write what… Read more »

Daniel was one of the best things about the show and I looked foward to what looked liked an upcoming story with Tristan. This was a big mistake on the writers part. i don’t know how many more of these big blunders fans are going to take.

Three Questions? Who texted Blake before the shooting? Where is the note? And why did Colin open the casket and say this is not over yet?

Who cares. I have never liked the character of Cane. Thought he was a nogood the first time I saw him on the show. Too bad, it took Lily 3 years and 2 babies to find it out.

PLEASE don’t take Cane off Y&R!!!! I LOVE him and he needs to be with Lily and the twins. Theres a few other people that you could take off the show instead of Cane. He’s a good actor and nice to look at!

Bring him back, he and Lily had such charisma and please let Lily find the note he left her about his father. That whole subject needs to come to a head.

Thank you for covering this story. I personally loved the relationship between Cane and Lily, I thought it was a wonderful story line and it was really disturbing how Cane was shot and Lily was left to look after the twins herself. I understand that “stuff” happens in daytime TV drama, however I think it was a really bad decision on the writers part to kill off Cane. When you have people boycotting the show because they want to see DG on it again, the writers have to seriously reevaluate their decisions. Daniel Goddard is a very talented actor with… Read more »

Boooo when Cane was killed off, boooooo! I hope what I just saw on Y&R is true, Cane showing up at the gravesite, yippeeee for Lily and the twins and want to see him bring down his father, yeah that sounds like a plan!!

That guy at the cemetery that Lily keeps seeing is not a ghost, but it’s not Cane either… it’s his twin brother. And their mother is coming to Genoa City, too, and together they are going to avenge Cane’s death. Probably by disclosing to everyone who Colin really is- – or forcing him to finally come clean with his identity to Jill and the Chancellor clan. That’s what I am guessing anyway. Oh, and of course Lily is going to establish a relationship with the twin.

I have watched Y&R since the early 80’s. I am having a heard time believing that Cane is no longer on the show. I enjoyed his character with Lily and the fact that the writers make you want to love and hate him at the same time. If a petition came around my way, I would sign it in a heartbeat. I realize this is just one small email/opinion, but I do feel that you have more life left in his character. Bring him back! – if it’s a payroll issue, his role is more worthy than that of Deacon.… Read more »

If the ghost Cane is the evil twin, I hope he comes to his senses and sticks it to his dad. Cane always talked of his sister but not a brother. If Cane’s death was faked, I hope he is playing along with his dad to finally crush him once and for all. Lily needs to find the note Cane wrote to her that the wind blew off the desk – was it real or just part of the plan.

Cane has a twin and it was the twin that was shot. The real cain is going to be working
with his mom to put his dad (Colin) away. The Lily will get her Cain back. That’s my
thought on the situation.

CLM

I have believed all along the Cane is not dead! I like many think that Cane is working towards the day when he can destroy Colin……his Mom is also going to play a huge part in helping Cane bring Daddy down. With all of this being said, we can only hope Lilly doesn’t go totally crazy. I wonder how much she can endure, or how long she can hold on to her sanity……HURRY CANE!!!

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
