THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Sharon Finds Out Rey is Dead in Heartbreaking Performance from Sharon Case

Photo: JPI

Thursday’s episode of Y&R, brought with it reactions to the news of death of Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) by many key Genoa City residents, but most importantly his wife, Sharon (Sharon Case).  While fans have been vocal on social media that Rey was killed-off camera, and the exit of Daytime Emmy-winner, Jordi Vilasuso, the soap still managed to bring us some riveting moments from the cast within the storyline.

Throughout the hour, Sharon looks quite upset, but trying to keep it all in check, as if she knows what’s about to happen, and certainly after she hears about the accident that Victoria was involved in.

Before Sharon finds out Rey has died, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) is told by Ashland (Robert Newman) while she is suffering from injuries sustained in the car crash.  She demands Ashland take her to Rey, and that is death is all her fault.  Ashland tells Victoria what he saw since he was in the car behind her. He tells her she swerved to avoid hitting Rey’s oncoming car, and crashed into a tree. Victoria thanks Ashland for saving her life.

Back at Crimson Lights, and to wrap-up whatever story could have been brewing between Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Rey, Sharon calls Chelsea out on her attraction and the connection she has to her husband.   She suggests that Chelsea is happy to have a night with Rey and Connor.  Chelsea says she knows Rey is married to her, but that Rey is a terrific man. The two, in the calmest manner possible, say that they appreciate the others honesty and that’s as far as it goes.

Meanwhile, Chance (Conner Floyd) gets a call from the police department about the three-car accident and heads out of Crimson Light where he was hanging out with Connor and Chelsea.  Elsewhere, Nick (Joshua Morrow), who has left Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) to find Victoria, calls Victor from the crash site. He informs his parents that there is no sign of Victoria, or Ashland, but that Rey Rosales was involved in the accident and is dead.

Victor and Nikki head out to find Victoria and Ashland and find them in the deserted shed near the accident. Victor looks not too happy that Ashland was the one who saved Victoria’s life.  Chance is at the crash scene and in discussion with Nick, and they decide that Nick should be the one that tells Sharon the tragic news about Rey, not a police officer she doesn’t know.

At the end of the episode, Nick walks in to Crimson Lights, and Sharon already knows in her gut that Rey is dead, but she gets so upset that she begins to just talk non-stop about Rey.  As she starts to break down, she tells Nick that before she tells her that what happened, she just needs a minute, Finally, Nick reveals to Sharon that Rey has died.  Next, Sharon crumbles into Nick’s arms as she sobs uncontrollably that Rey is gone.  It was a gut-wrenching performance from longtime Y&R all-star, Sharon Case.

Watch the final moments where Nick tells Sharon about Rey below in two clips.

Then, let us know, what did you think of the episode? How do you feel about Rey being killed off-screen? What did you think of the performances of Sharon Case, Amelia Heinle, Joshua Morrow and Robert Newman? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Sorry to be a downer but I found the crying really “actory” and fake. Didn’t care for the scene. But then, to be fair, I am bitter over losing Jordi Vilasuso — who apparently DIED OFF SCREEN. Unbelievable.

Hollyoaksboi…There is sobbing, or crying. I think Sharon did a little of both, but caught herself to show some sort of control and having to be strong for everyone. And babble talking. Like wanting to talk to Mariah about planning her wedding in the middle of Rey dying. I just don’t think she has really allowed herself to show how she is really feeling…devastated. But I’m really upset about how they treated Rey the character, and that Jordi is gone. To the point his funeral might be in Miami. Also I think the actor playing Ashland is doing his best… Read more »

I agree, Rose. Robert and Amelia have finally figured out their scenes together. And I always loved Jordi as Tony on GL, and was super excited for him to be on Y and R, though the writers butchered the entire Rosales family unfortunately. They had so much potential!

I figured if they killed Rey off Sharon Case would have some major scenes to play and we know she’s up for it, starting with this scene when Nick told her.

But I am fed-up that they let Jordi V. go. I’ve not heard anything about what their rationale was for making this decision – we do sometimes hear a “reason” – but this makes no sense in my opinion and I just don’t understand it. Loved him.

This was a great scene and great acting today. Rey was not a good character he was very wooden and brought nothing to the show . Keep the veteran actors front and centre . Imagine this scene with old Young and the Restless music . The old music brings so much to this show. I don’t understand how the TPTB don’t get it . Or maybe they do ? Does playing the old background music cost more ? When Lynn Marie Latham was there, the background music was good , as well as Maria Arena Bell . Once Jill Pharen… Read more »

Yes. George. The music score is sooo important to add depth. The last several years background musics been frankly embarrassing for this show. Also how poor is the show that there’s only 4 sets in rotation for several weeks at a time? I think the problem may be the vet actors take up to much budget. I feel it’s time Eric, Melody and Peter go on recurring possibly like Lauren does inwhich they are on often enough to back up stories but aren’t the prime focus. I d rather newer fresher character get stories but ones still tied to the… Read more »

George Wilks, Sorry to disagree with you but Jordi is a great actor. I’ve seen him on numerous shows and if he was wooden to you, it’s probably the way he was directed in the scenes. I don’t think the actors, except for old Victor are given Carte Blanche, they have to follow a script, no matter how bad it is. Sorry you don’t have the old music that you seem to dwell on and find so important to the show. I liked the old stuff too. Did you watch ATWT? That organ music at the beginning gave me chills… Read more »

Agree Violet
Rey was sooo good opposite his brother Arturo and ex Mia. Once he was left as Sharon’s prop he was only as good as the very poor writing

Call me crazy—it wouldn’t be the first time—but, I called Ashland’s fake illness almost as soon as the character was introduced.
Now, the accident and Ray’s death—( great acting by Ms Case, BTW)–
What if Ashland planned the “accident”? Sadly, Ray was not part of the plan–hopefully, Chance will do a thorough investigation, and voila’—Ashland finally kicked to the curb by Victoria!!

Hi CELIA! Two things: first, thanks for the good chuckle about Chance conducting a thorough investigation. Unless it’s involving the hair care aisle at Wal-Mart, I can’t picture him doing anything thoroughly. He sure is cute, though. Next, I had some misgivings about this illness of Ashland’s but I was assuaged when they CHEATED and showed scenes of him grabbing his chest, etc., when no one else was present, indicating it was genuine. Plays like bait & switch to me. So what’s next? Looks like Chelsea and Chance are hitting it off AGAIN, now dragging in Conner as the bait.… Read more »

Chance—what can I say?? He’s just there. Glad you “got” my satire—now, he’s the only cop in GC. I’m sure he’ll get to the bottom of this accident which I believe was no accident. He will work so diligently– I’m not into his hair. It looks matted and infantile. If you ask me, he and Abby act more like mother and son than husband and wife— As far as Sharon and Nick—I’ve been waiting for years for them to be a couple again. I was still in grade school when their little romance “bloomed”—I was enchanted and Nick was so… Read more »

Celia, your infatuation sounds sweet and refreshingly old-fashioned to me. And fantasies? I can’t even start on mine when Billy Miller was Billy Abbott. And yes, it did continue as Drew Cain. The guy just pushes my buttons, like Jeremy Renner and Mark Wahlberg on big screens. I really like Noah, too, but he might be a tad young for me. Not that I’d refuse…

Oh, Souphound—you always manage to make my day!! Believe me–Billy Miller is second on my list. The number one spot is reserved for my gorgeous hubby!! He still manages to make my heart skip a beat after almost fourteen years of marriage. I agree, Noah is cute—do not cut yourself short—as you can see from these soaps, age means nothing. In my mind’s eye, you are one beautiful woman!! Yeah!! And, yes—I am sort of old-fashioned, I guess. Did you watch Y&R in the mid to late 90’s? Nick and Sharon were THE “thing”. I think Case won for best… Read more »

Thanks, Celia. Noah is a dreamboat, alright. I just wish he’d get a decent story. I loved the five measly minutes when he agreed to work with uncle Adam. They pulled that plug fast enough! Why…too much heat? Yes, I’ve watched the Shick pairing for decades and love when they’re together. Especially the cat claws with Miss Nikki Newman. The last go round, Nick lured Sharon into a daytime bath…his hair was longer then, the way I prefer, and I swear my television was about to overheat. Josh is 48 this year and just keeps getting better…in every way. I… Read more »

SC and JM are magic on screen together even when it’s not romantic. You can tell how much these two actors care about one another as Co workers as it comes across in every scene.

I never cared for Rey or the Rosales family. Much of it was how they were introduced into the show and the fact that it came at the expense of veteran characters having meaty story. Rey’s presence essentially removed Paul from the canvas, which was made even stranger by other characters mentioning him by name but viewers never seeing him. – However, there was lots of potential recently with Rey and Chelsea growing closer, which would inevitably create drama and include Sharon, Nick and potentially Adam and Sally in the story as well. Going this route with Rey closes the… Read more »

She is always supportive of her fellow actors her kind words to Jordi if JG had invested in this couple but he doesn’t but that’s another story but the end game has always been her and JM and the moving thing is they know what the other one is thinking and it’s awesome to watch

Sharon Case and Josh Morrow together are everything! These two belong together. Sharon sensing something wrong and just rambling to delay Nick telling her was sooo gutwrenching! Kudos to these two soulful actors. Kudos also to Amelia and Robert Newman in their scenes in the cabin. However the complete disrespectful way the show rid of Rey was just nasty. No last scenes with Sharon really. No playing out the Chelsea angle to really put some serious rift between her and Sharon. How great would be a kiss been in Chicago and a fight between Sharon and Rey or Rey telling… Read more »

I wish Josh Morrow would stop his shoulder-rolling thing and take his hands out of his pockets. Or at least pull something interesting out of his pockets. Like maybe some acting tips from Robert Newman, who is blowing me away with the mediocre material he was handed.

WWE Royal Rumble: Sami Zayn Turns on the Bloodline, Cody Rhodes and Rhea Ripley to Wrestlemania

The best soap opera storyline going (the WWE’s ‘Bloodline’ internal struggles, betrayals, and alliances), had its long-awaited major development following the conclusion of the Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens WWE Universal Championship headliner at this weekend’s Royal Rumble PPV streaming on Peacock.  It provided viewers and fans with one of most dramatic moments ever witnessed in WWE history.

However, before all of that, it was the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble with each of the winner’s getting their shot at at the championship and to headline Wrestlemania in Los Angeles this coming April.

Courtesy/WWE

As expected, Cody Rhodes, who made his triumphant return after an 8-month layoff from the ring – recovering from a torn pectoral muscle and surgery – beat 29 competitors to win the Men’s Royal Rumble finally eliminating Gunther. For it was Gunther who set a record for being in the ring the longest during a Royal Rumble match. Gunther was entrant #1 of the 30 men vying for the shot at the title.

Also as anticipated, Rhea Ripley, who has been on a hot streak of late as part of the ‘Judgement Day’, punched her ticket to Wrestlemania besting 29 other women. Ripley outlasted Liv Morgan after Morgan got misted in the face by mistake by Asuka and Rhea used that to her advantage to be the last woman remaining in the ring.

But all eyes were on the main event of the night and just what WWE Universal Champ Roman Reigns had in store for Sami Zayn. Prior to the match, Reigns had told Zayn he had one last test for him to prove his allegiance to the ‘Bloodline’. Problem was: Reigns was wrestling Sami’s best friend, Kevin Owens for the title.  Reigns, came to the ring with only Zayn and special counsel Paul Heyman by his side – the rest of the ‘Bloodline’ were conspicuous by its absence.

After Reigns defeated Kevin Owens, the rest of the Bloodline (Jimmy and Jey Uso and Solo Sikoa) joined him in the ring for a monumental beat down of  Owens including handcuffing him to the ropes.  When Reigns demanded Zayn find a chair, Sami was not pleased.  After locating a chair under the ring, he tossed it to Reigns.  Once in the ring, Zayn protected Owens and told Reigns he did not have to do this. That’s when, Reigns demanded Zayn deliver the chair shot.

Courtesy/WWE

Instead, Zayn hit Reigns in the back with the chair, thus ending his sensational run with the The ‘Bloodline’! What happened next was a sad beat down by Solo Sikoa, Jimmy Uso and Reigns of Sami.

However, in a surprise twist, Jey Uso, who had originally been skeptical of Zayn’s intentions in the ‘Bloodline’, turned his back on Reigns and the family, and walked out of the ring emotionally upset.

One can only imagine … perhaps Uso and Zayn might team up and it might mean the end of the Usos Tag Team Championship run? Will it be Owens and Zayn teaming up vs. The Bloodline? Zayn vs. Reigns for a title shot?

This story has been executed so well by the WWE that it has captivated audience and made Sami Zayn a beloved fan favorite in the process.

So, what did you think of the collapse of the ‘Bloodline’? Did you think Cody and Rhea would win their respective Royal Rumble’s? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out some of the highlights from the Peacock streaming PPV below.

GH’s Eden McCoy Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Not often does a week’s worth of soaps offer up so many outstanding performances. However, the beginning of 2023 brought just that in dramatic scenes featuring General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt), Willian Lipton (Cameron), Parry Shen (Brad) and Days of our Lives Lauren Koslow (Kate).

When all was said and done there was one performance, that for us, rang most true. For anyone who has ever gone through a break-up and had to let someone you care about down, you could feel and understand the raw emotion displayed by General Hospital’s Eden McCoy (Josslyn).

Photo: ABC

Not only did McCoy deliver during the breakup scenes as Joss broke Cameron’s heart into pieces, but later, Joss is shocked and guilt-ridden to find out that Britt died from ‘The Hook’s’ attack after saving her life, and then having to admit the whole thing to her mother, Carly (Laura Wright). Never mind the one other event of that fateful night.  Joss had sex with Dex (Evan Hofer) before she headed over to Kelly’s to talk to Cameron, realizing she should have cleared-up her relationship, first.

McCoy really shined when Josslyn arrived at Kelly’s to tell Cameron things have changed between them. She tearfully apologized for not coming to him sooner.  She promises she will always love him, but she is not in love with him anymore, and she lets him know there is no going back. They can’t fix things.  As Josslyn pours her heart out knowing what this was doing to Cameron, it was a five-hankie moment, indeed.

Photo: ABC

In addition, when Josslyn spills most all to her mother (she left out the part of having sex with Dex), you could genuinely feel the bond between the two, which as we have stated many times through the years, speaks to the perfect casting of McCoy as Carly’s daughter and her on-screen chemistry with Laura Wright.

For all of these well-played and outstanding moments, Michael Fairman TV names Eden McCoy our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, what did you think of Eden’s work in the break-up scenes between Joss and Cam and its aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Britt Dies, Josslyn Breaks Up with Cameron, Ava Finds Out Esme is Pregnant

Wednesday’s General Hospital featured a heartbreaking death and an emotional break-up.  Although fans knew that Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) was leaving the daytime soap opera, we all thought that she would exit the canvas alive, especially given the set-up of her goodbye/birthday party, and that Britt was leaving those she loved behind to go live out her days with a new identity why she battled Huntington’s Disease.

However, the surprise was on us.  When Britt returned to the ‘Haunted Star’ to be with her mother Liesl (Kathleen Gati), she collapses. Eventually, Britt starts coughing up blood and Liesl finally realizes she needs to call 911.  But, it’s all too late.  Britt tells Liesl she won’t make it to the hospital as she was poisoned by ‘The Hook’.  As she draws her last breaths, Britt asks her mother to hold her.   The scenes featured touching performances by Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud.

Later, Liesl is alone at the hospital and Scott (Kin Shriner) joins her, and that is when Scott learns Britt dies.  He phones Nina.  Meanwhile, Liesl says one final emotional goodbye to Britt.

Courtesy/ABC

In another tearjerker. Josslyn (Eden McCoy) realizes she has to break up with Cam (William Lipton) tonight, especially after having sex with Dex (Evan Hofer).  She says it was wrong of her to give into her feelings for Dex, without breaking up with Cam, first.  Joss heads to Kelly’s with Dex outside for protection from ‘The Hook’.  Inside, an emotional Joss tells Cam things have changed between them, and that they can’t go back to how they were.  She apologizes to a gut-punched Cam but she’s not in love with him anymore.  Cam tells her they cannot go back to being friends.  Eden McCoy and William Lipton were excellent in these break-up scenes.

At GH, Esme (Avery Pohl) apparently has some form of amnesia from her hypothermia and can’t remember her name, that she was pregnant or where she was.  Is it another trick … or did Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) just get off scot-free for their roles in kidnapping her?

When Ava (Maura West) arrives at GH and learns that Esme is pregnant, Nikolas approaches her so they can have a word in private.  Then, in front of Laura (Genie Francis), Trina (Tabyana Ali), Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and more, Ava asks Nikolas if he is Esme’s baby daddy, to which he replies, “Yes”.    Then, as only Ava can do, she hauls of and slaps him as his mother looks on in horror over the entire situation!

Courtesy/ABC

So, were you shocked that GH decided to kill off Dr. Britt Westbourne? What did you think of the break-up scenes between Josslyn and Cameron? Now that Ava knows Esme is pregnant with Nikolas’ child, what do you hope she does next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section, but first, check out Josslyn trying to let Cameron down easy that only backfires on her in the clip from today’s GH below.
