While last Friday Steve Burton and his Y&R castmates had his going away gathering, it was yesterday on Tuesday, December 13th that Burton officially shot his last scenes as Dylan McAvoy on CBS Daytime’s The Young and the Restless.

The fan favorite sent out a special shout out to the cast and crew following his final day at the set tweeting: “Great last day @YandR_CBS @YRInsider great people. Great place. Always gr8ful for my time there. Much luv to cast and crew. 🙂 #chilltime

Burton, who ends his four-year run in Genoa City, is said to  heading to Nashville to be with his family, excited to be looking for new acting projects, and as we have previously posted has opened an acting course for those coming to Tinseltown via his new project, Hollywood Schooled.

Look for Burton to air on Y&R well into January.

So, how do you think the writing team will write-off the character of Dylan McAvoy? Will the door be left open for a return by Burton?

Share your thoughts on that, and his heartfelt message to his colleagues on his exit in the comment section below.

They should recast him with Billy Miller-

They could, Jimmy. It makes no difference that it would be the same soap, different character.
Sharon Case and Billy Miller do have a romantic history as Billy A and Sharon Newman/ McAvoy….what a coincidence? Same name as their character’s name. Freaky!
As per my grandmother, Chris Kositchek and Roman Brady both played by Josh Taylor ( DOOL). So, it could eork.
But, be that as it may, I doubt Miller will exit GH, at this time……I wish, though….
I do agree that Dylan should be recast. TPTB CANNOT leave the Sharon/Dylan story ‘cold turkey’.
Maybe, he and Sharon can go on a trip to get away from all the devastation in which they find themself….come back brand new; in more ways than one.
Smile, Jimmy…

Smiles are getting harder for me these days but i managed one after reading this…i seen many soap actors come back to play different roles on the same soap they were on before but Josh-first as Chris and then as Roman seemed weird to me for many years…but now im ok with him…i just think he was so underused as Roman its hard for some fans to accept him in the role!!!

Billy Miller should come back as Billy Abbott, Michelle Stafford as Phyllis and Michael Muhney as Adam.

Violet Lemm

Now, that is the best scenario yet!

Bring back Justin Hartley as Adam.

Addison

No–Gina has made Phyllis her own and I finally like and root for Phyllis now.
I cannot stand Stafford’s Phyllis anymore than I can stand Stafford’s Nina.
And Jason Thompson has really stepped into those big shoes left behind by Miller and like Gina, he also made this role his own.
I all for Michael Muhney coming back as Adam, however, realistically speaking, I do not see that happening.

Celia

Amen!!!!!!

I luv Billy as Jason GH ..
I want Michael Muhney back as Adam !!!
Michelle Stafford doesn’t want back at Y&R

Sharon needs to be killed-off, dead ..
Luvin Hillary- she is true Queen Bitch ..
Cain & Lilly are pukin’ sickening, just mentioning..

As for a recast of Dylan, naw.. he’s not all that important.
Well, Dylan gives Paul someone to scold and yell at..

Me too. Loved Jake Doe, but was disappointed in trying to remake him into Jason. Just did not work for me. I also don’t care for Michelle as Nina. Too kooky and unbelievable.

Since they connected Dylan to Nikki and Paul I hope they don’t kill the character off– I am open for a recast at some point– also since Paul already lost a son, I would hate to see him lose another one— but Dylan is such a stand up guy I don’t see him leaving Sharon- so my guest is he will be yet another character presumed dead– body missing– open for a return, but dead for the time being– I imagine it will be when he is doing something super heroic — saving someone from a burning house, or a drowning– but if they kill him outright– Doug Davidson will have another shot at a Emmy– mourning another son.

Nikki
Nikki

Hi Mary I read somewhere that Nick has a one nighter with Sharon. No details but my best guess would be Dylan finds out and leaves Sharon. He already misses Sully/Christian but Sharon has said you still have a family. I don’t think he could handle losing to Nick again.

Celia
Celia

Wow, Nikki. Really? I am anticipating the reason Dylan leaves. Your estimation makes the best sense, if Sharon and Nick hit the sheets, LOL.
My mind was actually steering in the wrong direction. I sort of assumed Nick and Chelsea ( ugh) would ‘get together’…. there is a certain amount of sexual tension there.
I would rather see Nick with Sharon than with Chelsea, albeit I still feel Dylan should be recast.
I agree with some posters who want Avery back…..the Avery/Dylan premise of a baby, by Addison, sounds good to me.

Timmm

Hmm, I was wondering how Dylan would exit?

Nikki

If you try “fishwrapper soap news” you’ll see what they say about Dylan.

Celia

I never liked Jack, Nikki. I was too young ( or not born, lol) when Terry Lester played the role.
Now, I detest Jack even more. Here I was calling Billy a spoiled Abbott brat, but Jack tops him.
This is how I remember Jack….his true colors are coming out.
OK, so don’t think I’m crazy or anything ( well, maybe I am, a little. Aren’t we all? LOL), but, did you notice Jack’s hair, yesterday?
If you dvr the show, rewatch it. The front of his hair was styled in the shape of horns…..making his forehead and eyes, in the right light, look reptilian.
I don’t know why the writers are suddenly ‘shedding’ Jack’s good skin for bad. I think he is out for blood and he will probably do something so much worse than evict the ‘residents’ of BRASH & SASSY…….sleep with Victoria, maybe? Retaliation?

Celia
Celia

Good premise, Mary. What would trouble me, though, is the fact that if Dylan is presumed dead; awaiting his return will take a toll on Sharon.
As we witnessed, time and again, on these soaps, is that no character is ever left ‘manless’ for too long ( so far, Ava of GH is holding her own without a man. LOL). So, Sharon would soon be paired with some guy….and the cycle starts over again.
Dylan will return to a love triangle.
As will Adam. ……know what I mean, Mary?
Therefore, for this expressed reason, I hope Dylan, if he is to return, does not disappear for too long.
I think that, finally, Sharon has found the right guy to give her life some bliss….enough tormenting this character. PTB, please give Sharon a break.
And, NIKKI has some nerve to treat Sharon as she does in front of Faith. Poor kid.
Lest I forget….Nick’s a whimpy, mommy’s boy. Not that I condone Sharon what she did, albeit her mental state does come into play……But, have some respect for the mother of your children, dufus.

Nikki
Nikki

Oh my gosh you are so right about Nick. I am so sick of him and while we’re at it what the heck happened to Jack.? Ok he’s hurt and I don’t condone having an affair with anyone let alone his younger brother but did he forget sleeping with Jill when she was married to his father? Jack in his younger day (played by Terry Lester) was a real playboy. He was hopping in and out of beds with all the Jabot models not to mention what he did to Patty Williams. Good grief now he acts like a saint.

avery should have made a brief return for dylans departure
the two belonged together and dylan leaving her for sharon was abrupt. both were smart and respectable characters and it would be nice to see if good wins out in the end

His PTSD, that he never doctored for lol might come back and he’ll freak out, out…

Addison

Avery will show up with a year old baby as well as an iron clad DNA test proving that the baby is his.
Dylan, Avery and their baby boy will steal one of Victor’s prized white stallions, ride off into the sunset, and live happily ever after.

A dark haired woman enters the picture with her back to us….she quietly tells Dylan that she needs his help with a situation in New York, Port Charles to be exact, she turns around and it’s Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough)…she says to him that he reminds her of someone from her past and to please come help her save her friend, Jason….in a dream sequence Dylan/Jason wakes up and the General Hospital credits roll…..fade to black, and Dylan says, “wow, what a dream!!!!!”….hahahahahaha

The character and the actor were forced down viewers’ throats from day one and NONE of his stories — his 20 minute battle with PTSD; his romance with the Julia Child of law, Avery Bailey Clark (who was reunited with him after he left a special rock for her on the bar at The Underground — hahahahahahaha); that “riveting” on-line cooking show stalker mystery; the reveal that he was Nikki’s secret sainted cult baby; being the doofus who got fooled into playing daddy to somebody’s else’s kid twice — worked. The soaps need to learn that just because an actor was popular in one role is no guarantee that popularity will transfer to their next role (it rarely does).

I’d like to see Dylan leave town to find his real family after discovering that Sharon tampered with his DNA results because she’d run out of Newman men to marry and needed a new way to annoy Nikki.

THINK DYLAN MAY BE KILLED BECAUSE OF HIS JOB ,OR HE MAY GO UNDER COVER,

I think he did some of his best work recently, with the baby switch storyline. I liked Dylan paired with Sharon. Good luck.

in a twist, I’d like to see him on GH but as AJ Quartermaine! Time to build the family back up again.

I welcomed Dylan to Genoa City but never cared for all that Ian Ward nonsense. And I am not sure we really needed to tie him to the Newmans. That said, I liked that we had a good guy on the canvas, someone not always bullying or sleeping around. If I was Dylan, I would not stick around either after all that baby mismatch nonsense. Better the character moves on. Sure, he could return one day, but I think this exciting reboot of Y&R means characters not integral to Genoa City life may be minimized or let go. I would not worry about Mr. Burton. If the NASHVILLE move to CMT is a success, we may see him in prime time!

i have loved this show forever. i seeing going back to the old way with all these memory scenes, and the characters having conversations about the early years. i would love to see jack finally find a woman who loves him and i want to see more of lauren and michael. and some really cool arguments between jack and victor. those were so precious back then. i wish dylan the best and hope they end his story with a tear jerker. i love it when my hubby sneaks tears from his cheeks.

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.
