The Young and the Restless is about to have some major catastrophic events hit the residents of Genoa City beginning on the Friday, February 13th episode!

In one of the story set-ups:  Devon (Bryton James), Hilary (Mishael Morgan), Neil (Kristoff St. John) , Colin (Tristan Rogers), Jill (Jess Walton), Cane  (Daniel Goddard) and Lily (Christel Khalil) are aboard a plane that is traveling to Chicago, but it hits turbulence, and a snow storm, and crashes.

This is one of the main stories being delivered for February Sweeps by Y&R’s newest head writer, Chuck Pratt Jr. known for some heavy duty disaster storylines on his previous written works on daytime and primetime soaps .

Yahoo TV has a story and a video package on how the plane crash was executed on the production side through the narrative as told by Y&R production designer, David Hoffmann.  He related that to make the plane crash “look” as real as possible that the design process actually started with research: looking for pictures of actual plane crashes and finding resources for where to get pieces of wrecked planes. Once the props were found, the production team only had a few days to get the sound stage transformed. In addition to fork-lifting huge pieces of plane wreckage to the site, more than 300 platforms of varying heights were installed, snow equipment was brought in, and tons of “snow” blanketed trees that were added to create the wintry crash scene.

Looks harrowing! Set designers did a good job.

So, does Neil admit he can see?

Looks like Hilary is injured and Devon is tending to her.

Looks pretty good…someone, maybe Colin, will notice Neil can see and later blackmail him…hope the plane lands on the long thought dead Dru Winters and we see a pair of ruby slippers she was wearing sticking out from underneath the wreckage…lol

Wished Sharon found out it was her Adam . They are the best couple ever to hit the sheets on Daytime 🙂

Chelsea or Victor would be fine by me if they are gone. Chelsea does not belong to Adam. The days of Sharon and Adam were the most romantic steamy loving tender. Nick can have anyone he wants but threatens Sharon by taking Faith away and yet he was the reason Faith was stolen leaving Sharon for Phyllis in a mental hospital and playing with Sharons emotions. Nick doesn’t deserve Sharons love. Why does Victor and Nikki and Phyllis always get free passes to do criminal acts and Sharon is the person who is never allowed to be happy

This show is FANTASTIC! There are so many different stories peaking at this time. The airplane crash is very real. The Penthouse fire is unbelievable! Really a way to get Adam back with Chelsey and have a hidden secret of identity! Then let’s not forget the Underground disaster. Then the murder at the Abbott cabin. Cannot wait to see the show tomorrow! The writers are great ones! Just keep us entertained!

Chelsea can be so fake. I have no idea why she is still on this show . Sorry I find her annoying

Nikki

Towards the end of the video everyone has blood on them but I can’t see anyone worse off than the other so maybe the one who dies is not on the plane. That Abbott cabin in the woods Summer’s husband left the party. Sharon is with Faith but the lights flicker, and the underground has drywall falling from the ceiling. The first video we saw showed Nikki,Victor, Phyllis so I think a lot of people are going to the underground & that’s where someone dies.

I hope its not another storyline where Dullyn does a repair job to the “Underground” like he did at Sharon’s house!

I have to give a BRAVO for the plane crash set. well done!
I am one of very few who likes Pratt..
I knew he would create a huge entrance to tell all ; I HAVE ARRIVED!

My only disappointment is– the plane did not crash into Cassies gave..
Picture it– Sharon at Cassies gave for the 3045th time giving one of her sniveling speeches and BANG the plane crashes on it and takes them out, now that would be AWESOME!!

Nonetheless, it was a great moment for Y&R to finally have some action (thanks Pratt!

Now let’s get to the kill list… (Pratts like to kill-off the big ones for sensational stories 😉

Totally sick!

Yeah, that is a bit much.

Su…how can it take ‘them’ out if Sharon is the only one at the grave…Cassie is already dead!!!

su0000
su0000

lol good one, jimh.. 🙂
but-
Cassie is always still there she is not dead enough..
that grave is a pulpit for Sharons rantings for a decade and more..
the plane crashing on the grave while Sharon was doing her 34423erd grave rant, would be cool ..
LOL ohh it was just a dream, jimh, just a dream, is all ..

Kudus to Pratt– he gave us some action and it was good!
I hope he keeps the action going!! I always liked Pratts mind/writing ..

richard

People grieve for dead children every day, they aren’t just plot points and people forget about them. YR should be applauded for keeping Cassie’s memory alive. That’s a bit harsh.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, Su. You are kidding, right? You are aware that a cemetery is Holy ground, right? I know you are kidding. That’s sacrilegious , so I will assume you are totally being cute…

CeeCee
CeeCee

Let Sharon have her pulpit, su. I will take into consideration that probably you never lost a child. That pain is a breathing, living companion for the rest of a mother’s life. Trust me, I KNOW.
Sharon is the personification of every mother mourning(not ranting) the loss of her child forevermore and beyond. Cherish what you have . This is a soap but it exemplifies reality….at least, this aspect of Y&R. I have found that this is the only soap that remembers its dead, especially children.
It Pratt’s intention is to repel the sanctity of what is dear to people (especially their departed loved ones) then, I see very sadistic writing in the making. I find no joy in other people’s misfortune. Therefore, I pray Pratt will not accommodate your lust for gore, Su.
You will not believe, Su, how many charities I support……mostly anonymous for sick children.

Thank you Cee-Cee lovely post!

the soap is not real life..
it is campy fictional stories.. no one is dead ..
no other soap has a tombstone as a pulpit for speeches and many many children have died on soaps and none have their tombstone used as a prop..

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I agree with k/kay about your lovely post…i too know what its like to loose a child…i was not the parent but i had to bury an infant nephew whom i was going to raise…he’d be 15 this year…ill always wonder how he’d turn out…his gravesite is near my mothers and another nephew who passed from cancer in his 30s and left behind a wife and 3 daughters…i visit the gravesites of my relatives several times a year…it makes me still feel very close to them…i even update my mother on Days Of Our Lives…she was preparing to watch it on the day she died but had a stroke before that day’s episode air…some might think thats corny but its my way of keeping them a part of my life…peace!!!

su0000
su0000

jimh ,,I’m so sorry for your loss.. I buried most of my family..
but- that is real life real people not a make believe characters..

Cassie is not dead, no actor is dead, no one is dead..
it is not a real tombstone
it is not a real cemetery ..
Cassies tombstone is a prop and a tool for Sharon’s rantings for over a decade to depress people and is very campy overkill for a dead character ..
It’s horrible to use a child’s character, a dead child character as a story tool to make some people feel sad it is just not right to use the death of a child to generate snivels in a scene, its just not right to use the childs death even if a character, to make some people feel bad….

(people grieve, pay homage give respect and tears for real people in real graves.

Sorry, I still want both gone .. ( no cookies for me lol ..

Charles Pratt was the one behind the killing of AMC. He was the worst writer. Good luck Y&R. Between he and JFP things are not good.

AMC died 2 years ‘after’ Pratt was gone..
He gave a great tornado and one kill,,
It was Pratt who killed Dixie with poison pancakes, yes?
I never could stand Dixie so another gold star for Pratt!! 🙂
Y&R is going to have some needed changes!

GO PRATT !

double take on: “amazing”

this makes for giddy production excite

yes, LOL… excitable happenings

hey : I will bring up Days of OUR Lives in it’s entirety… plays out in the horton square and surrounding park….

oy! lame … a diss on OUR show of shows

this generates top draw… kudos to Y&R product

some serious bore going on with Neil, Devon, and Lilly… specifically with Devon… did I say DEVON … Lilly never really triggered any thing… other than Cane in all his presence ooh la la’d for Lilly. Neil has grown in to his own… and just needs a good costar… when will that ever happen?

ps: Sharon and Adam would generate this much excite as well

it looks damned GOOD

So looking forward to seeing this tomorrow. I guess Neil will sober up instantly after he downed the glass of scotch today before he delivered his bombshell that he could see. Glad that Canadian fans are 1 day ahead of the US.

Looks like a lot of ff for me. One of the last things I’m interested in is a plane crash and the fallout from it. Enough of that type stuff on the news, and I won’t watch that either.

I think a plane crash disaster is a good way for CP to come in shake things up. A disaster like this will be great motivation to drive characters to act both in character and out. He may be able to right some wrongs that have been done by previous wirting regimes. Kinda’ sorta’ like this: Hilary dies. We can totally do without her. Because we don’t care about Devon either. A ba-zillionaire? C’mon! Colin dies. This character has gone no where anyway. Leave Jill on her own and she’ll be way more fun. THe crash causes Neil goes to go blind again. (By the way, he should continue to meet Nikki at the dive bar. I’m loving these two gettin’ drunk together and I hope that they start laughin’ soon and havin’ fun. Its’ a bar!) Since Neil is blind again and never ‘fessed up to seeing, he’d have no credibility with anyone but Devon that he saw his boy and his wife in the sack. Devon could convince Lily that Neil doesn’t know what he’s talking about and Colin is dead so he can’t give him away. And Cane is a wimp. I’m still hoping that Neil gets Hilary in the sack and has a great time and then gives his son the elbow and a couple of wink winks! They talk like that. Ewww. Devon has tremendous guilt and continues to lie to his dad about his relationship with the now dead Hilary (buh bye) but promises to be a better man. Maybe he’ll even leave town to do good charity work somewhere and leave the big businesses to actual business people. So, what, the plane crashes into the Newman cabin where all the other people in Genoa City are having a VD party? Ok. Victor crashes the party because no one would invite him and after the plane hits and he’s injured he’s alone with Sharon who saves him. He starts remembering how much he loved Sharon (remember, Sharon and Katherine were the only two people that Victor always stood up for. They were the only ones that Victor had compassion for.) Katherine is dead and Sharon, while off her meds, burned Vic’s house down. And he finally remembers that she’s one of the two people he truly loves and forgives her. Nikki, is sitting on the edge of the couch when the house rocks and falls on her butt, and says, “oh, my MS!” but no one notices because the house is on fire and other people are dying. Austin dies and this ultimately motivates Summer to become a nun and stop pouting, and she does good work in GC. She’s an important legacy character and needs to stick around. Phyllis will ask her why she wants to wear the long black dress all the time. Chelsea, Billy, Sage, Gabriel/Adam, Victoria, Stitch and Nick are all trapped together …. under the roof of the Abbot Barn, yeah …. and like the Ricardo and the Mertzs… Read more »

This is a good way for Pratt to get rid of the fat. Hilary and Devon survive because Neil has to screw with them for a while. Although Colin is a waste, he just signed on for another year. Austin wont die because him and Summer will be in a triangle with Kyle. I dont know, maybe Lilly goes? She is holding Cane down for sure.

Oh brother, Pratt’s BS is here. Death & destruction hits Genoa City. How predictable can you get? Get the morgue ready, the bodies will be piling up quickly.

Honestly, if there were no survivors on board would it really be a big loss to the cast? Oh, and can we have Dylan be a pilot! Oh, alright, Cane survives BUT only if he gets a good story line!

In a perfect storyline Cane and his dad are gone forever. Lily finds a new and interesting lover. Meanwhile, back in Genoa City, Kelly, Ben and Billy are buried underground never to be found.

I thought I was the only one who couldn’t digest Cane, penny…Ugh. He brings Lilly down. I wish Daniel would come back…sigh!

nows a perfect time to bring back tyler for lily and leslie for neil!!

OLTL Alum Renée Elise Goldsberry Says: “I Just Think The Best Actors In The World Are On Daytime Television”
