The Young and the Restless: Jill To Katherine: "I Hope Whatever Journey You're On Right Now … You Are Having The Time Of Your Life!"

On yesterday’s special episode of The Young and the Restless, the loved ones of Katherine Chancellor gathered together to remember their dear friend and the grand dame of Genoa City at Chancellor Park.  The episode was also to honor the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) who passed away last year.

For the one-year remembrance episode, the writers of the series chose to have the characters of Genoa City each write a personal letter, or note, to Katherine about their inner most thoughts, struggles and current state of their lives. The letters were then put together and set a fire up to the heavens for Katherine to receive them.

Actor Michael Fairman (Murphy) made a return and began the ceremony by reading the instructions for the day from Katherine, and as he tried to read it, he was over come by grief, and handed the letter to Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) who read the rest of Mrs C.’s request out loud to the attendees.

Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) was now drunk, Neil (Kristoff St. John) was now blind, Kevin (Greg Rikaart) was Chloe-less, Paul (Doug Davidson) and Christine (Lauralee Bell) are at odds … and we could go on.  Things have certainly changed since a year ago!  But Jill (Jess Walton) is now with Colin (Tristan Rogers), who in his letter to Katherine revealed he would do anything to protect Jill and his own family.

At the end of the episode, it was Jess Walton’s (Jill)always exquisite performance who had the final words, as it should be, with Katherine in a private moment.  After trying to figure out what the “Music Box Mystery” that Katherine sent her on a year ago truly meant, she thinks after a conversation with Colin that it was Katherine’s way of having Jill not end up from where she always started (which was basically alone and miserable), but she ended up finding love with Colin.

Jill tells Katherine “Thank you” for the gift she gave her, and teaching her that its about the journey, and helping her find love.  She then says she won’t be needing the “music box”, and leaves it behind and says her final goodbye, for now, to her long time friend and often time nemesis, and exits the park.

As she leaves, someone swipes the music box! So it looks like, as Jess previewed in her interview with On-Air On-Soaps this week, that part of the story is far from over!  So, what did you think of yesterday’s episode honoring Katherine Chancellor and Jeanne Cooper? Jill’s final emotional line of the episode to Katherine was: “I hope whatever journey you’re on right now … you are having the time of your life.”  A beautiful sentiment for Jeanne Cooper, indeed.

Watch the final moments of the episode below … and then share your thoughts on yesterday’s airshow!

I agree, Katherine was THE staple of Y&R, I’ve missed her presence so much. And Jeanne Cooper was amazing, my grandmother watched from the beginning and loved her all the way through. She was truly a gifted actress. And her chemistry with Jess Walton was unbelievable. Katherine and Jill were my favourite pair on this show!

I felt nothing, considering the fact that I cry over everything and anything…I get very weepy when moved, but not this time. “Hillufer ” was so out of place; I mean, she knew Katherine for what? A minute?

It was really lovely. The snippets of the letters were amazing. The writers should be very proud.

I thought it was nice, a huge improvement over Katherine’s memorial last year. Jess Walton was perfection ( of course), and Tristan Rogers was excellent as support. It was nice to see Nina again, I wish she could stay.

I missed Brock. I wish he could have returned to say a few words. Just the sight of him tears at my heartstrings. He embodies the love and the goodness in Katherine like no other character can.

A few flashbacks would have been nice. Not of the Grand Dame version Kay. She was kinda boring. I LOVED Katherine in her prime. The Kay who could scheme and be nasty, as well as, love and be funny. Sometimes I think the memorials are more about Jeanne than Katherine. Katherine Chancellor was soapy goodness, Y&R shouldn’t be scared to use her to stir the pot. I don’t think she would mind Jeanne was proud of her character.

It was an episode saluting the actress JC not the character of Katherine. Very sad that they did not do justice to the character with long time story.

Better than last year’s episodes but really that didn’t take much (but I kept wondering where Brock and Phillip were at). I thought the writing of the letters was pretty pointless if at least one didn’t wind up in the wrong hands to reveal a secret.

I can’t believe they’re STILL trying to make that music box storyline a thing — it’s time to face facts, Y&R…no one cares.
