THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Hilary, Lily, Charlie … Car Crash!

Courtesy/CBS

Tragedy strikes on Wednesday’s episode of The Young and the Restless!

It all starts to unravel when at the end of her live show broadcast, Hilary (Mishael Morgan) signs off with an emotional, yet cryptic message noting how things are changing, and not knowing what will happen next. What is Hillary referring to?

Later at Devon (Bryton James) and Hilary’s penthouse, as Shauna (Camryn Hamm), and Charlie (Noah Alexander Gerry) are about to have sex, they are busted when Lily (Christel Khalil) shows up! Shauna, who has run down the stairs is given an earful by Lily.  She tells Shauna she’s a bad influence on her son.  Just then, Hilary arrives.  Shauna says that Hilary knew Charlie and her were going to rendezvous.

Hilary calls out Lily for being an uptight prude.  Once again, these two begin a battle of barbs that this time will be life-altering.  Lily fires back that she feels sorry for Shauna and for the baby Hilary’s carrying.  All of a sudden Charlie is beside himself that Shauna ran out and he has to find her.

Now searching for Shauna in the car, Lily is driving as Hilary continues to ramp up the bickering from the front seat passenger side.  Charlie is in the backseat.

Hilary reminds Lily she was no saint at Shauna’s age! Lily has heard enough and she barks that Devon having a baby with Hilary is the worst idea, ever!  She goes on to tell Hilary she has no business being a mother.  All of a sudden a loud horn is heard, and their car is smashed in to, with the passenger side being the first to get hit!

Watch the car crash scene below.  Then let us know, what you think will happen to Hilary, Lily and Charlie in the fallout from this tragic moment via the comment section below.

I thought it was a great episode today. I think Hilary will lose the baby as a prelude to Mishael Morgan’s exit. Lily will be blamed for the accident and its aftermath by her family, especially Cane and Charlie. Although I like the actor, it would make great story to have Charlie killed in the accident. We’d deal with Lily’s guilt, Cane’s grief and Mattie’s loss of her twin sibling.

Had anyone read that Hilary is being killed off? I know M.M is leaving, but I am wondering why they would be writing all this new stuff for her, only to kill her off. Its more likely, she’ll linger in a coma, as did Phyllis, and then bring her back,voila, new Hilary!

Now I would be ok with this storyline. They could always have another baby later or she could be so injured to where lily would have to carry the baby.

Lee

Lily is unable to carry a child, she had uterine or ovarian cancer and had to have a complete hysterectomy. Mac (Kay Chancellor’s granddaughter) carried the twins Maddie & Charlie for Cane & Lily.

Katisha Scott

I forgot about that. Well, I think lily needs to pay someway and they bring back another Hillary to bring back the feistiness that will be gone from this show.

Lily is completely gutted and barren. Mackenzie had to carry her kids for her.

Celia
Celia

Oh, Kay, my lovely friend….I’ve been on the Sharon and Nick train for fifteen years ( when I was just fourteen, LOL)….never got off.
Too bad, right, Kay?…. I thought this was it for them; at last!!
But, Nick had to go and mess it all up…..not that Sharon has been sincere with him, either—what a travesty—
What are the chances for Adam to return? Would he and Sharon hook up? Again?
Dashed hopes. I think I’ll write a storyline for Y&R and send it to the Network. HaHa!!

k/kay

The sad thing for me is they were the last super couple Bill Bell wrote for I knew better to get sucked in! Can’t waych this silly stuff they destroyed Sharon for years but Nick is no prize so maybe it is time to move on

You know if it was true live he would have confuded in her and she him I always felt the last few months of Burton’s run that he and Case were great together. Then he moved back to GH to play robot man and well so it goes

Well, he owns the clinic, doesn’t he? I would think that could get him a priority appointment, if he needed one. Though I’d rather he got the same treatment Jason got over there….. knock his ass out with drugs and strap a mask on his face so we don’t have to hear him whine again.

I’m deeply scared that Charlie is going to die and that’s why “Cane and Lily will never be the same” and why Neill was crying so hard. I assume Hillary will lose the baby and leave GC in despair or die herself, since she is leaving the show. #Godihopecharlieisok

Hilary will loose baby and die or leave to get away from everyone to be with this other guy as for Nick he is turning out just like his fatheŕ finally someone stands up to Victor as for Jack I think he will find out he is not a chancellor

Unfortunately shr doesn’t make it and Lily will be facing charges and possible prison time for running a stop light causing a drsth.

I guess Charlie wasn’t paying attention to the road either. I would have been and then said something to Lily. Why didn’t he say, “Mom, keep your eyes on the road?” Even if I were arguing with someone while driving, I wouldn’t need to look at them.

Special effects were great. How did they do that?

k/kay

I never will be able to stand the character of Lilly again she is disgusting when was it her job to control Devon and she has taken that stupid Cane back a million times those two make me sick the fact they have a fan base amazes me . I hope someone slaps her stupid whiny mouth she is ignorant and no she is not even close to being Drucilla’d daughter

So spoilers say Hilary is still alive glad to hear that her and Devon get a exit story ! But I am sure they will make her the villain !

Mira Jourdin

It is Lily with her big mouth and she should be blamed. Last two years she made too many mistakes and her slammy husband. She should change or go out. Hillary is a bright and smart.

I watch this show for the drama and the romance. I’ve been watching for over 40 years. Why are y’all killing off some of the best characters. Why couldn’t you have Hillary leave and come back as someone else. We know when this show kills off characters and you don’t show the body i.e. Drucilla, malcolm and Adam, their character can be resurrected. Why not do the same for Hillary? I love the Hillary and Devon storyline. This is just dumb in my opinion. There aren’t any other characters who can bring a fire and spark like them.

Cathy
Cathy

Hillary’s character is much needed on the show. WHY COULDNT SHE HAVE BEEN RECAST. You bring in New character Shauna, wht happens with her? Lily is annoying as hell. Please do something exciting with Summer, like give her a great job on the other side of the work,and let Jack get Red back. Can’t stand billy,he’s not even good for himself. But I do like Phyllis n Nick. Can’t tolerate Sharon. Wht will happen when Phyllis discovers her daughter is a real snake? will she leave billy or will billy have self control n not sleep with his girlfriend’s snake daughter

Brenda Lowery

I didn’t know Hilary was leaving the show. But I just saw today’s show, and it looks like Hilary died and didn’t make it. Wow! I wish I knew who that mystery guy is who she met with earlier. What’s his deal?

Rita Walker
Rita Walker

I think it’s Awful to take Hilary out the show like that and I’m at work around more than a100 people’s almost all of us FEELS the same way and than not to have Devon there just Awful some of my co-workers are debating if we will continue to watch the show. People’s are tired of SELF Righteous Lily and than for her and her son not to have a scratch on them unreal.This show begin to suck.The best thing it have going for it right now if Nick take down Victor and his sister.Which Victoria is not loyal to Nick and he must see that.For once let Nick,Abby and Jack Win.Somebody needs to Safe this Show the rating will fall. The love story between Devon and Hilary woulda been great.No one Billy back with Victoria. Furthermore, how could the writers in their right mind give that baby of Nick to his dad Victor???It DON’T Make Sense after the history Victor have.Sorry but frontline the writers at this moments. Instead of bring Summer back you should have brought Adam back..(Muhney are someone’s else Adam is the key to this story Now and that is who should take over for Victor ONCE he Retired..(Muhney) are someone like him.Now I feels the show should have done everything in their powers to KEEP Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan)and I do feel as OTHERS the show is low down for taking her out this way.Now I have a Question DO are is The Young and Restless Prejudice to black people’s. Lily, after all is marry to a white person and she may be mix. I FELT LIKE HILARY WAS THE BETTER ACTRESS EVEN BETTER THAN MARIAH ALTHOUGH MARIAH WON A AWARD.SUMMER SHOULD HAVE STAY GOING SO WHAT REALLY GOING ON WITH SHOW?? THE RATINGS WILL DROP.I HAVE WATCH THIS SHOW SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL AND NOW I’M THINKING OF STOPPING WATCHING IT MYSELF. PEOPLE’S ARE ALSO TIRED OF NIKKI AND THE NEWMANS..NICK THE BEST ONE AND HIS HALF SISTER ABBY. I have been loyal to this Show and i know their are millions of PEOPLE’S out their some that feels the same way i do and others who may not. We all can admits the showl. is going down hill if some Changes are not May. THANKS

You had to drop that race card!!!!!

k/kay

Not sure she was dropping the race card it took me a long time to adjust to Hillary but I think I knew where she was coming from at the end and everybody seems to forget Neil kept her captive and no one seems to mention it so do not be too quick to judge the actress had a lot thrown at her and stepped up to the plate personally I would have liked her to be paired with somebody else but not to be only wish her the best!

Dreama hay

I believe Hillary’s contract was up and she wanted too much money

Violet Lemm

Rita, while you have made some good arguments, that I agree with,especially MY, whom in my estimation is trying his best to get rid of Y&R, probably to install one of his British creations.
He has systematically ruined or changed every key character. I do not blame Nick for trying to compete with Victor, with his latest endeavour. I do blame his disloyal mother, sister and fiance, for not at least understanding what he is trying to do. It may not be right with him finding a little solace, and sympathy, Phyllis style, but he can be weak, where she’s concerned. I do not agree with most Adam fans. He is not the answer to this show’s salvation. He is as evil as old dad, if not worse. Look up his history of the horrible things he’s done, starting with gas-lighting Ashley,causing her to lose her child, then stealing Sharon’s baby and giving her to Ashley, out of guilt.There’s much more that new-comers don’t know, and others would rather forget,where Adam is concerned. Ashley and Hilary are both leaving of their own accord, and who can blame them? I’d rather lose Lily and that horny husband. I am not sure about Nate yet, just wish he’d put on a damn shirt. I think we all know by now , he’s built like a a brick you know what! I also think he jumped the gun with Hilary’s surgery. Seeing as how there are quite a few people of color, on the show, I didn’t understand your comment about that. I don’t care for Shauna either, but wouldn’t ,if she was green or purple.

Soaphound

I’m nearly as bummed over Mishael leaving as I was when Billy Miller and Michael Muhney left. I hope she shows up on GH or DAYS…or even a quality nighttime or cable series. That said, is anyone as SICK TO DEATH as I am over Lily’s endless moralizing?! She acts like Charlie disemboweled Shauna! We all know sex is a big deal especially when it’s our kids, but she was WAY over the top. So tired of her hypocrisy and her pompous (albeit gorgeous) husband’s terrible treatment of Jack. They act like they’re not even human!

Katisha Scott
Katisha Scott

The storyline for Jack is pitiful. If you want ratings, just finally bring out that he’s Victor’s half brother. Also, the summer storyline is stupid and how is it she is the one who gets Billy gambling again. REALLY? Come on YR, this is ridiculous. You’ve grown up everyone but Faith and then when you bring them back they are boring. Not working out the contract to keep Mishal (Hillary), on the show. That is crazy. The Newman’s are played out because victor always wins.

Hillary and baby will both die.
There is absolutely no-one that could ever replace Mishael Morgan, she is the one and only Hilary.

Lily, well – we will have 6 months of her going off the rails, and the family.
That family is the most boring blah family in the soap world so not looking forward to the aftermath.

to mention;
Mishael Morgan is a headliner star.
and- ALL stars want their exit to be the coveted; go out in a bang not a whimper..
Her being Killed is the prize exit, good for her to be given it.

Okay so Charlie wasn’t in the seatbelt because he’s sitting in the middle of the seat and not even a scratch

The character of Hilary has been a mess from the get-go because of the writing (a mystery blogger out to destroy Neil because of a retconned plot where he hooked up with her alcoholic mother while on a bender). The show could never decide whether Hilary was a heroine, an anti-heroine, or a flat out bitch so they kept playing her as all three with no success. The only reason the character has lasted this long is because of Mishael Morgan’s talent and popularity.

I think the show will write her off with a teary deathbed scene where she recalls the happiest moment of her life — the time she was a contestant on THE PRICE IS RIGHT — because she will definitely find a job in prime time
(maybe as Dominique Devereaux on the CW’s Dynasty?)…

The woman is on her last breaths and she never stops yapping.. No wires, no vitals monitoring, nothing beeps when she passes out. The weirdest way to write a wedding story. I was almost expecting them to ‘get it on’ in that hosp. bed… Now THAT would have made my day in a wonderful way ! haha NOT.

Well, I figured Hil would lose the baby, but if she is still leaving the show, leaving Genoa does leave room for her to return! Probably at the time Devon has a new live interest! Could make for some interesting fall viewing. Writers make note that Devon’s new partner can have children!!

Norie

Never mind if she ( or anyone else) is leaving the show. I don’t know where people get this infi, I certainly did not know nor do I care. Don’t let that spoiler ,(literally) impact your viewing pleasure.

Have not seen today’s program.

Mishael Morgan has so creatively twisted her character over the years that it is hard to say something was unique in what should be her final soliloquy as closing her last program. However, it was a rather special display of her “reach” as an actor. It was personal and professional. Hilary needs to die.

Victor is leaving? Ashley is leaving? Jack is Victor’s half brother? Is all that happening?

Slow something down for a bit. Let us all grieve. There has always been, as someone else mentioned, a Shakespearean element with Nick and Victor, but I don’t know if the evolution of son turning into father will play well.

I turn off watching when young ones die, or when torture is involved. If all those just mentioned are leaving, someone break out for me just who is related to whom.

All the actors are doing superior work. It is a “Soap.” Someone asked why the writers don’t take on a serious story line and carry it to a realistic conclusion such as TJ’s abusive behavior or Dina’s inevitable regression. Such themes can easily couple with — I am lacking a word for this, but it can work.

What a difference a day makes if one doesn’t read this or watch daily!

Norie
Norie

I pay no attention to things like he or she is leaving. Just take it day by day for what it is, ( yes, peppered with some hearty comments from me) and when the hour is up, I don’t
for one minute think about it anymore. It’s a story, folks. Like a book, if you don’t like it then you put it down.

I think Devon will marry Hillary and the secret guy she met with before her accident is her brother and he will try to put a claim to second fortune because him and Hillary have no prenuptial since the marriage was on her death bead

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard, Stacy Haiduk & Kim Zimmer

Listen to “Soap Nation Live Season Premiere 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s season premiere of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman it was a broadcast full of surprises, fun, and intriguing intel as some of the biggest names in the soap opera genre helped kick-off the series 2018 run of episodes.

Joining Michael in-studio as guest co-host was General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).  The show began with a guest call-in to surprise Laura, which was revealed to be daytime drama icon, and four-time Daytime Emmy winner, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva) of Guiding Light.  Laura and Kim worked together on the beloved CBS soap where they played sisters.  Kim expressed how much she enjoys checking out General Hospital and the actors performances she has loved watching which included: Max Gail (Mike), and the recently exited Nelle (Chloe Lanier), among others.  Michael, Laura, and Kim bantered on the actresses time on GL and more.

Next, GH’s Michael Easton (Finn) joined the show where he discussed the release of his upcoming 20th anniversary edition of his book 18 Straight Whiskeys, working on GH opposite Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jessica Tuck (Cassandra).  During his segment, Michael Fairman asked Easton to play a game show segment he prepared for him, which was called, “Michael, Who Said That?” In it, Michael Easton had to guess which one of his many soap characters was he portraying in the scene in the audio clip, and it made for one of the highlights of the night.

Calling in from New York City was Stacy Haiduk, who is about to make her debut this week on the August 21st of Days of our Lives as Susan Banks, replacing Eileen Davidson in the role.  Susan is back on the canvas just as John and Marlena’s wedding is about to begin.  The question is: Will more of Davidson’s roles be played by Haiduk during her upcoming rum on the show?  We chatted with Stacy about working on DAYS, and taking over the one-of-a-kind role of Susan made soap-famous by Emmy winner, Davidson.

Then, The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was our special guest in the studio.  Jason talked about Billy’s latest stumble back into his gambling addiction, Phyllis’ fling with Nick, and if Billy will be able to resist the seduction attempts by Phyllis’ daughter, Summer on upcoming episodes.  Jason fielded several questions from fans who called-in to chat with him during his segment.  As well, throughout the broadcast, several listeners were able to get through the busy phone lines to pose a question to our guests.

Michael surprised the listeners with none other than Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital as the last guest on the show.  Maurice was celebrating his 25th anniversary as Sonny on the ABC daytime drama series.  With Maurice, some of the funniest moments of the night occurred when Jason and Laura recounted what happened the first time they met him.  Maurice also expressed that this past week, he taped some of his most favorite scenes of all-time, and Laura said they have been very emotional.  As announced, look for a special Sonny-centric episode in September in honor of Benard’s 25 years as Port Charles’ top mobster.

Finally, one lucky caller won a pair of tickets to the GH Fantasy Event in Atlanta, Georgia, during our game show trivia segment, when he had the correct answers (with an assist from Jason Thompson) to the questions.

Now, click on the play button at the top left of the player at the top of this post, and hear the replay of the Soap Nation Live! Season Premiere with Laura Wright, Kim Zimmer, Michael Easton, Stacy Haiduk, Jason Thompson, and Maurice Benard.

Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin, Passes Away As Soap Stars & Fans Remember Her Love For Her Soaps: Y&R and B&B

The world continues to mourn the loss of the one and only, Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who died this past Thursday at age 76.   For some time, Aretha had been batting advanced pancreatic cancer.  The voice that meant so much to so many, and inspired so many female vocalists of today can never be replaced, and her songs and performances will live on in our hearts forever.

Over the last few days, television news programs have brought to us some heartbreaking, emotional, and uplifting moments from her dear friends: the incomparable Stevie Wonder, who shed tears while speaking of Aretha on the CBS Morning News, and with whom he went to see shortly before she died,  as well as Franklin’s longtime friend, Smoky Robinson, who spoke about his relationship with host Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

This weekend, several tributes are on tap paying tribute to the mighty Franklin including those on TV One, and on OWN, with Oprah Winfrey’s Remembering Aretha Franklin: The Oprah Interview  tonight at 8PMEST.

But daytime fans were clued in to the fact that Aretha had a passion for the soaps.  She loved The Young and the Restless, and the character of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).  In fact, Aretha was thrilled to be asked to help introduce the Y&R Daytime Drama Series nomination clip package at the Daytime Emmys in 1997.  She expressed why she was superfan of the show: “I watch it in the morning. I watch it when I’m at home. I watch it when I’m in concert. I watch it when I’m asleep …  I watch it!”   And one of the main reasons she loved Y&R, was Victor Newman: “Victor is one of my favorite characters in The Young and the Restless.  I love the way he makes his approach to a woman.  He’s the all-time player.”  The ‘Queen of Soul’ even did her own impersonation of him.

At the 2005 Daytime Emmys, Aretha presented the Outstanding Drama Series Award alongside Eric Braeden.  It was a thrill for her, and also notable for Braeden as he tweeted about his mishap where he accidentenly said, “God Bless, Eric Braeden,” when he meant to say, “God Bless, Bill Bell”.

Upon learning the news of Franklin’s passing, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Eva Basler (VP Communications for Bell-Phillip Productions and The Bold and the Beautiful) recalled on Twitter: “It was my first year at The Bold and the Beautiful & we were at rehearsals in NYC.  Aretha Franklin was on stage & looked down to the floor & screamed, “RIDGE! THORNE!” excited to see them in the front row. Later, I had the honor of escorting Susan Flannery & her thru the gifting suite.”

Courtesy/CBSBoldInsider

The official show Twitter feed posted: “The cast & crew of The Bold and the Beautiful are sending prayers & good thoughts up to Aretha Franklin & her family. Some of our cast met The Queen of Soul, who is a huge fan of B&B, at Radio City Music in NYC Pictured here with Susan Flannery. We LOVE you Aretha!”

Throughout the last few days so many soap stars have posted their sadness on the loss of Franklin, and what she meant to their lives and to all of ours.

Now below, watch the two moments of Aretha’s from the Daytime Emmys were she talks her love of Y&R, and presents with Eric Braeden.  Followed by the emotional interview with Stevie Wonder on the CBS This Morning and then Smokey Robinson’s remembrances. 

Then let us know your thoughts on the passing of Aretha, your favorite song of hers, and how wonderful it was to know that this American treasure was actually a soap opera fan, just like so many of you via the comment section below.
