THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Hilary Dies, As Mishael Morgan Wraps Her Run With The Power Performance Of The Week

Courtesy/CBS

As we start the new week something will be different on The Young and the Restless.  There will be no more outstanding performances by one of the most dynamic actresses ever to appear in the genre, Mishael Morgan (Hilary), unless “Ghost” Hilary is coming.

For on Friday’s hankie-inducing ten times over episode, Hilary died in Devon’s (Bryton James) arms.  And, in one of the most heartbreaking sequences we have seen on the soaps in a long time, Morgan went out leaving her imprint as one of those performers who we will all be saying about, “Ah, I knew her when.”  A bright future awaits Mishael and her undeniable talent.  You just need to look at social media to see how many viewers have praised Mishael and fallen in love her work as the feisty, Hilary Curtis Hamilton.

In true grand soap opera fashion, and we mean that in the best possible way, on Friday, after Devon and Hilary were pronounced husband and wife, her condition is making her weaker and weaker from the injuries sustained in the car accident and the complications from surgery.  The newlyweds have a champagne toast with the glasses Shauna (Camryn Hamm) gave to them. Hilary mentions making ‘Hevon’ babies with Devon; which was a sweet nod in the writing to their passionate fan base.  Now getting into the hospital bed with her, Devon holds his dying bride as they start to have the heartbreaking talk as they both know what is about to happen.

Devon begins to break down as he tries to hold it together so Hilary can let go.  She tells him to make her funeral service a celebration.  She tells him that there will be an amazing woman out there who will create a family and children with him, and that she wants him to move on and be happy.  Next, Hilary let’s Devon know she has had a blessed life, because she got to marry him, and hear her child’s heartbeat before it died, and all of her dreams came true.  She lets him know, all his dreams cannot end with her.  Then, she asks Devon to look after Shauna, who is so special to her, and who will need him when she is gone.  Hilary tells Devon that whatever she thought she wanted in her life, she only just wanted him.  Devon whispers that she has him forever.  Suddenly, Hilary begins to cry and says, “Maybe, I did do something right.”  Next, we see a montage of Hilary and Devon scenes through their relationship, which ends with Hilary telling Devon about the two stars in the sky, “the soul sisters”, which he is now reciting back to her as we are in the present day.  Suddenly, he begins to sob, as Hilary has died.

Last week, as viewers saw all the emotional beats play out once Hilary landed in the ICU and was fighting for her life, it made for riveting, and gut-wrenching drama. These included: Mishael’s scenes where she accepts Devon’s marriage proposal, their wedding, and the key scene with Hilary’s best friend, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) were she learns she is not going to make it.  There were those touching moments with Mariah (Camryn Grimes), where she asks her to move forward and keep her show GC Buzz going, that heart-tugging scene with Neil (Kristoff St. John) where Hilary and Neil have a full-circle moment and come to terms with their past with one another.  But most of all, there were the scenes with Mishael’s main Y&R scene partner, Bryton James, who can always break viewers’ hearts since we have watched Devon grow up from a boy to a man right before our eyes through James’ years on the CBS soap.

As for Mishael Morgan, she deserves several standing ovations for this past week’s performances; bringing the essence of Hilary through all her scenes, and making us devastated to watch the final moments of her life.  Hilary was a force to be reckoned with who caused so much trouble for so many people, yet in the end, everyone on the canvas in Genoa City, and everyone at home, will miss her terribly.  Without a doubt, the Power Performance of the Week goes to Mishael Morgan for this body of scenes, that we will not soon forget.

So, what did you think of Friday’s final moments between Hilary and Devon?  What did you think of Mishael’s performances?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The entire week has been incredibly emotional, with Hillary making peace
with everyone in her life… Neil, Mariah,
Lily…and finally accepting her own fate,
sad indeed.

Hilary’s performance was outstanding. I cried all week. Well done. Even though this is a soap opera story line, sad to say this happens in relation life as well. Keep up with the great story lines

Yes very outstanding that’s why I don’t understand why she had to exit after 5 years. I wish she would have never died off I was hoping for her to have lefted Genoa City and a possible return. So Proud of Mishael Morgan.

Oh, its Monday morning, thanks for waking me! What a snore Y&R has become! Thursday’s episode [7-26-2018] was horrible! I got through it in 10 minutes tops! Why? First, they are killing off a good character who is a very good actress. Secondly, we get to continue to see “Robotic” Devon and “Cue Card” Nate! HORRIBLE! Then you have Charlie. Well, yes, they finally got him smiling but its a teen love thing and that actress is not too good neither! Then you mix Lilly and Cane in there and it is the worst! Cane has to be one of… Read more »

Really need to replace a few characters for sure instead they keep letting the good ones get away…Michelle Stafford..Steve Burton..Billy Miller to name recent losses…find a new Charlie and Maddie…they both are the worst

You’re absolutely right, Sue. To me, the show has never recovered from the losses of Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford. Now the wonderful Mishael Morgan, too? Why don’t Cane and Lily leave?

I am pissed about this weeks storyline if y&r doesn’t stop dying off the good characters the ratings will probably go down. Not sure after this if I will continue watching. Hillary role will truly be missed I was always looking forward to watching my Soap just to see my girl Mishael Morgan.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Timmm, I couldn’t agree more. Poor Hilary isn’t even cold and Cane is already plotting how to protect that self-righteous shrew he’s married to. I’m glad Mishael got a respectable sendoff, but killing the character was just lazy writing. Nate? Try “Not”. WHY IS HE ON? He has one expression and even THAT isn’t appealing.

Mary SF

Cane’s protection of “Lily” is so unrealistic– come on any cop worth his salt would know Lily’s car ran the red light and caused the accident– oh wait this is the GCPD we are talking about– my bad.

I agree with all of the above my Favorite Soap needs to do better with this Dying off an excellent actress is truly disappointing to me, y&r wont br rhe same without Hilary. I hope they don’t bring Samone back in the picture of Devons life.

the ptb shot themselves in the foot with another senseless death of a popular character acted by a formidable actress . the intresting fallout will be shortterm story for average actors in lily, cane and devon but it meant we had to lose one y n r s very rare leading ladies these days furthermore an african american one.

Excellent Damien and I so totally agree…I have said it a million times and I will say it again, Y&R is NO LONGER the same show and IMO it hasn’t been since 2006…So SAD what this once classic show has become…I will be tuning out completely too for CBS/SONY is not listening to us long time fans and they frankly DO NOT CARE about this show…GOODBYE Y&R…This fan for 30plus years is checking out…

Lew S.
Guest

Damien, I totally agree with you. Ilove the characters of Jack, Nikki and Victor, but there also has to be the next generation. Mishael’s Hilary was a hot ticket and her absence will be felt – bad decision Mal Young and the suits! Instead of bringing on more characters we could care less about,invest in those you have been ignoring – There are too many to name! Eileen Davidson’s departure in a few months will be another loss for the show.

Mai
Guest

I agree completely after Victoria Rowell there are no African American women on the soap. I will not be watching anymore. I loved Hilary and will miss her. The most beautiful woman on Y&R and all this over contract issues which could have easily been worked out. Good Bye Y&R because they got rid of all the African Americans on The Bold & The Beautiful as well you might as well say. The entire Avant Family Just gone. Left us with no one but Justin & those two new teenagers. Please

Erica Pollard
Guest

Exactly this was a lazy and senseless act how do us Fans recover from the acts of dying off good characters and we just keep watching and being let down even more. Hilary could have been sick longer or in a Coma or whatever until they worked out Contract negotiations. With a magnificent recovery Hilary could have came back. I will be more pissed if they bring Samone Back in Devons life.

Mister Media

I agree with everything you wrote. Mishael has been special from day one and this is a huge loss for the show. Although the hospital scenes required a huge suspension of disbelief, they were absolutely worth watching to view her performance. Mishael may be the most beautiful woman in daytime and I will miss seeing her.

Karen

I agree with everyone, Damien and the rest. My question is why! Why did she have go? She was so wonderful as this character. Her wit was was outstanding.

Erica Pollard

Because of the laziness of the Producers and Executive Producers to work out an acceptable contract negotiation for Mishael Morgan.

Erica Pollard

Yes but the hospital performances could have been longer I feel they rushed her last performance. As I stated I am very upset with last week’s storyline Hilary should not have died off the show period.

I will Always Remember Hillary Curtis Hamilton Forever. Miss her & easily tear up thinking of her losing the baby & death. Time for Lily to have hard days for the hateful nasty things she screamed at Hillary. Let her & Cane suffer; don’t care.

Mishael’s performance was emmy-award-winning. Perhaps, she now will have her special moment and win next year’s award. So well deserved. Thursday’s show was especially moving. I only wish CBS and Y&R would have wished to have the Thursday build up be on Friday, with Hilary’s final performance. We had to sit through all the other story lines when I think everyone was waiting for Hilary’s final moment. I know I was. Why cloud the issue. It was choppy. I don’t know how it could ever happen, but I sure hope CBS can find a way to bring her back.

Erica Pollard
Guest

Once they die off a Character they won’t come back, however the only time that happened was when Adam’s role supposedly died off then re casted for a very short while. I feel they should have stretched the storyline out for Hilary a little longer.

Actually,since Hillary was no longer attached to the machines,I think she didn’t die.She has been taken somewhere for experimental treatments.She will be back.I have seen too many soaps but I would be willing to bet that this is what happened.

When they killed little Delia off it took me months before to get courage to start watching again. I’ll see how it goes. I wish Mishael nothing but good things in the future. All the best. I’m not sure why the writers choose to kill off these actors not even leaving the door open for their return if like to. A fter watching for over years… Read more »

This is so crazy for me to be this emotional. I am so heartbroken. I feel as though I lost my sister. Honestly I have loved watching Y&R because of the love story of “Devon & Hillary”. I have been crying every day since the accident. Why did she have to lose the baby and die? Why couldn’t they have had that future they had planned? The producers made a huge mistake letting Mishael go. Big mistake!!!

I honestly found the episodes showcasing the departure of Mishael Morgan were amazing. This reminded me of the power of a good story. It also reminded me of when Cassie died with her parents at her side. This was good drama. I have stopped feeling anger or surprise when great actors move on. I have watched so many GREAT actors leave. It started for me with Beverlee McKinsey leaving Guiding Light and it has gone on and on. I agree that Y&R has been hit hard by the departures of actors like Billy Miller, Elizabeth Hendrickson, Michelle Stafford and various… Read more »

The episodes closing out Hilary departure were phenomenal. The actors portraying Devon and Hillary went beyond their A gamecin their performances. I haven’t cried like that over a movie or a TV the way I did last week if ever. One scene was more heartbreaking than the next. But for reason, I don’t know why, the scene that got to me the most was Devon and Neil hugging in the hospital corridor. When Neil put his head on top of Devon’s head that finished me. I said it before and I’ll say it again, I am so glad Kristoff St.… Read more »

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Dancing with the Stars

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Iman Shumbert & Pro Daniella Karagach Win The Mirror Ball Trophy Making Show History

Monday’s night’s season 30 finale of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars was markedly the best in the series history, with some of the finest routines delivered by the four couples vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy.

In the end, it was former NBA basketball player Iman Shumbert, who made history along with is pro dance partner, Daniella Karagach, when he beat out Jo Jo Siwa and her pro partner, Jenna Johnson for the top prize.

Photo: ABC

Rounding out the competition: fourth place went to The Talk’s Amanda Kloots and pro Alan Bersten, and the third spot went to Peloton instructor, Cody Rigsby and pro Cheryl Burke,

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.

Now let us know, were you rooting for Iman and Daniella to win the Mirror Ball? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
