Jeanne Cooper's Final Scene With Jess Walton! Last Y&R Performance Aired May 3rd!

In one of the most touching scenes, given the fact of the passing of legendary soap icon Jeanne Cooper yesterday, The Young and the Restless confirmed that last Friday’s May 3rd episode was the last appearance and episode taped by the Daytime Emmy winner and mainstay of Genoa City for 40 years!

According to Y&R writer Brent Boyd, Cooper’s last scene was the most appropriate of all, to have it with long-time nemesis turned friend, Jill (Jess Walton).  Boyd took to his Twitter account to relate “The last image of Jeanne Cooper on Y&R is of her ascending the stairs telling Jill, “I think I can manage. Good night.” A fitting end.”

Boyd also let fans know that this was not originally slated to be Cooper’s last appearance, “She was in episodes for 4 weeks after, but wasn’t well enough to work. Intention was to give Jill/Kay honest, emotional scene.”  In story, Katherine had returned home to the Chancellor mansion after being discharged from the hospital, where she’d undergone surgery for a brain tumor.

So we ask you, Jeanne’s beloved fans, was this heartbreaking to watch?  Do you feel some closure for Katherine and Jill, as you watched their last exchange?  Did you feel the love between the two?  Were you moved by Jess’s final look at Katherine?  The answer to us was a resounding, “Yes”.  Share your thoughts!  If you have not seen the final moment, you can watch it below!

I knew in my heart when I was watching that scene Jeanne was saying goodbye to all of us. I think Jess and Jeanne felt it too, because there was such a vibe of sadness and finality about that scene- that we all felt it. I am glad that was her last scene because it was perfect, simple and not sloppy sentimental – just touching and to the point. As for the character of Katherine, I would hope they will have her pass off camera- don’t recast, not even for a death bed scene or to wrap up her storyline–… Read more »

I think this was shot and placed in the vault to use if/when they needed it. I wonder if she shot this after the original was shot. To me she looked sick and frail but when she came home from the hospital and met with the surprise from Murphy and family she did not look sick. Maybe a day or two days before she went into the hospital the first time.

I agree also. Just as they killed off JR in Dallas when Larry Hagman passed, they should do the same with Catherine’s character now that Jeanne is gone. I can’t see anyone else playing these two icons. Maybe they’ll kill her off by saying she died in her sleep that night, after saying goodnight to Jill (and us). No excuses, just cut to the chase, since we all know she’d been sick for a while.

RIP, sweet Duchess.

I have watched Y & R from the beginning. I loved Catherine Chancellor and thought Jean Cooper was a terrific actress. She cannot be replaced, so please do not try. She is an icon for that soap and NO ONE can to the character as well as she did.

I totally agree with you. It was a perfect ending to what Jill and Mrs. C had all those years. My heart is breaking knowing that we won’t be seeing Jeanne any longer. She has been my idol on the show. I adore her. A lot of the advice she has given to her co-workers on the show when they came to her, I actually understood a lot of them and turned around and gave the same advice to my family and friends. I am going to miss her terribly. It is going to be very difficult to watch the… Read more »

Y&R hopefully will honor jeanne cooper with one week of shows when Katherine’s death hits Genoa city with Brock, Phillip, Mac , Nina, chance join murPhy, Jill , Nicki and the entire cast grieve. Hopefully filled with 40 years of flashbacks . Jill and Cain storyline will be meaty regarding chancellor. Wouldn’t be great if Brenda Dickson and Deborah Adair can make cameos as well?

I have to agree. To recast after that non planned final scene “Good Night” she was able to shoot due to health and the unfortunate passing would just be in some way disrespectful. She is irreplaceable, and it made it that much more perfect that “Jill” was the only one in the scene with her. In some way Im sure fans felt that Good Night was to all of them as well. She will be be missed and never replaced in our hearts.

Y&R owes Jean Cooper the honor of retiring “Kay” in all her glory and I believe that she “Kay” will somehow manage to handover the reins to Jill in spite of the current storyline with that boring, and unbelievable character Cain and while we are at it, can Lily leave yet? Most boring couple on Daytime TV …Goodnight Jean

It was beautiful and strange all at the same time. I saw when Jill was asking do u need help up the stairs, she was looking unusually thinner, and it felt genuine not acting. I loved that scene and their interaction. Being 51 yrs old I grew up with this show watching with my mom since I can remember. Mom is gone now. Then a couple days later I read mrs C has died and I cried for a while, saying what the hell happened. My heart goes out to all of us, and her family. I am so sorry… Read more »

Oh, that brings tears to the eyes. It so sad that we’ll never get to see her act again. And if we’re upset, I can’t even imagine how broken hearted her castmembers and family are.

JFP absolutely will. This woman knows her reputation in this industry, and has been working overtime NOT to offend or shock viewers of this show. There will be a huge elaborate tribute which Jeanna deserves, and I think JFP will produce the you-know-what out of it. JFP bashing is old news. Lol. She has done nothing wrong as EP. She has done nothing particularly right either, but staying the course and not rocking the boat is sometimes the better choice.

I totally agree, Leslie. If they do write in Katherine’s passing, they could do it like GH did Edward’s. The viewers never saw Edward only the characters such as Monica, Tracy and Michael saying their goodbyes. I had tears in my eyes watching Jeanne’s final scene. Such a grand lady.

I will miss the great Jeanne Cooper in this soap more than I can say. I watched today with hope that her passing would be addressed in some way either at the beginning or end of the show. In my opinion, it is time for an on air tribute not just tweets from fellow actors. I’m sure all the Y&R actors are mourning her passing but the writers should acknowledge her passing on air. I find this to be disrespectful to say the least!

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

I don’t think they were being disrespectful- right now, all people connected to the show are grieving they haven’t even buried her yet– I think they are too upset and too raw right now– give them time. I think it is a bit soon for them to do a tribute. Wouldn’t you rather see them do it properly and not rush it? Everyone knows she has passed- they don’t have to announce on air– and the tribute will come and it will meaningful and deeply respectful– so give them a break it just happened yesterday.

Carol Nardi
Guest
Carol Nardi

Perhaps just a short statement is what I meant and not a tribute show which I’m sure will follow. Not everyone who watches knows, remember the Y & R following is vast in nursing homes and hospitals and loyal fans could have missed the news postings. I have personally informed 3 fans that hadn’t heard. I just think an announcement would have been appropriate. Just my opinion.

I do hope Y&R does the right thing in honor and memory of Jeanne Cooper and the character — Katherine Chancellor — she created and gave such life and evolution for 40 years!!! I believe JFP and Josh Griffith know full well the legacy of this actress and character and will celebrate both well. Sadly, it was only a few years ago, MAB engineered the mistaken death of Katherine and we had a big funeral. There likely will be another direction just as satisfying. And I can only imagine what thoughtful plotlines are unraveled with the passing of the character.… Read more »

It is so nice how these unplanned things sometimes turn out perfectly. That as the last scene for Jill And Katherine was perfect. It captured their relationship BRILLIANTLY without even really trying. There was the obvious affection between the women. There was Jill‘s little girl lost face not wanting to lose another mother figure. There was the awkward hesitation and both of them trying not to show too much emotion. There was Katherine‘s stubborn refusal of help from Jill to go up the stairs. As funny as their battle scenes were back in the day, I am SOOOOOO glad this… Read more »

To me, there IS NO REPLACEMENT for her. R.I.P <3 We love you

A very fitting and final scene for Jeanne/Katherine – I watched it again here at work…

They won’t recast the role – I’m sure JFP and JG will have Katherine pass away in her sleep and put together a nice show honoring not only Katherine but Jeanne Cooper as well – SHE CAN NEVER, EVER BE REPLACED!!

IMO, Katherine’s passing will no doubt create great story for “Y & R”!

What a fitting last sign – I hope they do a special show in tribute to the wonderful contributions she made to our world and the world of the Y&R.

They already knew her time was short. Whatever she had(infection?)must have been nasty. I don’t think Jeanne would approve of canning Murphy, Esther and Jill, who have no reason to be there but for a Ms. Chancellor. I say RECAST with a younger actress, but made up to be Katherine’s age. Katherine is too much involved in everyone’s life to NOT be re-cast. Are you going to ask and pay everyone to re-write, re-memorize and re-shoot everything “in the can” already? It’s NO slight to re-cast her. It’s entertainment. The show MUST go on. A new Katherine would be a… Read more »

Murphy was hardly seen and I think even if Jeanne had lived his days would have been numbered on that show. As for Jill she was a full character in her own right before becoming Mrs Chancellor’s aid and sleeping with Phillip her husband- so I don’t think they need to write out Jill, just because Katherine is gone. As for Esther, a few years back when they did a fake death of Katherine, Esther inherited half the house- don’t see why that can’t still be- causing conflict with Jill– plus Esther still has a connection to GC in her… Read more »

“Most fans” can’t even name our Vice President(neither can he)! You don’t want the show to turn into a deluge of Katherine flashbacks, especially now where the drama between so many is coming to a head. Common sense would dictate who stays and who goes. I’ve been watching for 37 years. Because Jeanne played the character so well, she has set the bar high for anyone else to compare. But if you want to do a little teary eyed funeral and a few episodes to commemorate her passing instead of a living legacy of another carrying on Jeanne Cooper’s great… Read more »

i’m sure there are more wonderful talents to consider

I recognize the significant contribution Jeanne Cooper has made to daytime and she should be recognized for it. However, I’ve only watched Y&R for a few years and I am not so invested in her character. Except for one critical point – Katharine is Victor’s only friend. He turns on his wives, he turns on his kids, but not Kay. Victor needs Kay in his life to give him an opportunity at redemption after each dirty deed. In a world of characters coming and going, rising from the dead and recasts, please recast Kay.

The tears Jill was fighting back, Katerhine clearing her throat when Jill asked if she wanted help and her words to the fans “I think I can manage … Goodnight.” She alwasy said in interviews she looked to see if she was going up the stairs, because “I can’t come down any older!” and that always got a laugh.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.
