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.

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 acting surrounding the accident since taking over this role.

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!

Why was He taken off the Show. Jordin Vilasuso,I am very Upset.

No o think her performance was great sad to say to many people really go throw this and it breaks my heart

Very moving scene. Sharon Case brought it!

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.

It was heartbreaking, even if I never liked Rey or the actor.

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 Phelps came onboard the show lost its heart and soul. Jill Pharen Phelps almost killed this show , then Chuck Pratt made it laughable , and the Next regime stripped the show of most of the remaining quality .

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 core families. It’s clear y n r s become too cash strapped.

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 every day for years, I never got sick of it.

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. Nick and Sharon AGAIN? OK but let it last a while! At least we’ve had a break from Devon this week. Oh…what if Lola returns for Rey’s funeral at the same time as Kyle’s return? Hmm….

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 hot—
I was so young, Soaphound, and infatuated with my future husband, who considered me an annoying pest!! I used to fantasize whenever Nick and Sharon had a scene together, pretend and dream away…..
Chance and Chelsea? I hope not—can’t stand her. Never did.
Then there’s Victoria and Ashland—I’m so confused. What are the writers doing? Are they entertaining a “remake”?

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 young actress award, or something…if I am not mistaken.
Well, Nick was IT for me. He is still hot, in my opinion.

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 remember when Sharon won her Emmy back in 1999. IMO, she deserves a lot more than one, and as LEAD actress, not supporting. Maybe this year?

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 door on the Rosales family seemingly for good.

As for the way Rey died, I have a feeling Ashland played a major part in the “accident.” Maybe he rigged Victoria’s car to crash? I just can’t see it being blamed on the fog and no other explanation. Why was Ashland even on the road that night? And how will this impact his relationship with Victoria going forward?

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 Chelsea his insecurities with Sharon and Nick ? We got weeks of lead up to Diane’s return in that empty home in L.a which led to Jordi getting the budget cut axe but we could nt get one week of last scene lead ups for this story?! Further all the Rosalles have been horribly fired and had no real closures longer than a day or two. Josh keeps scrambling for ‘ bigger name ‘ returns that let’s been honest go nowhere! Michelle Staffords huge return as Phyllis. Two years now…

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase Proposes to Brook Lynn; Kristina and Blaze Share a Kiss

Finally, many GH viewers got their wish, when on the Monday, December 4th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Chase (Josh Swickard) got down on one knee (a few times) and proposed to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton).

At first, Brook Lynn balked at his attempt as she believed Gloria (Ellen Travolta) and Lois (Rena Sofer) were pressuring him to do so. When she tells Chase marriage is off the table he pulls out an engagement ring. Chase reveals he was planning on proposing at Christmas, so he had the ring ready to go. A romantic Chase shares that he doesn’t want to waste one more day as he clearly knows what matters now … her!  With that, Chase gets back down on his knees and proposes again, and this time Brook Lynn says, “yes!” The two seal the deal with a kiss!

Molly (Kristen Vaganos) breaks the news to TJ (Tajh Bellow), that she now wants to accept her sister, Kristina’s (Kate Mansi) offer to be their surrogate, after all the failures they have been through in trying to find a candidate that will stick.  While TJ voices his concerns, he eventually comes around and tells Molly, “Let’s have a baby,” and now seems excited about the prospect of Kristina being the answer to their prayers. They seal the deal with a kiss!

Kristina and Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) get together with a bottle of champagne, since Blaze’s latest song just hit number one on the charts. During their conversation, Kristina asks what is Blaze’s real name? She reveals it’s “Alison”.


Later, Kristina opens up about her past and her abusive relationship with Keifer, her short marriage to Trey and then how she went away to college and fell for her professor Parker Forsythe (formerly Ashley Jones).  She then reveals Parker went back to her ex. However, Kristina’s takeaway was she realized she was clearly into women. That leaves the moment open for Blaze to make a move on Kristina and the two share a kiss.

So, three kisses moved the stories forward on this episode of GH. Which are you most happy about? Chase and Brook Lynn getting engaged? GH moving forward with a same-sex romance for Kristina and Blaze, or TJ and Molly coming together to agree to let Kristina be their surrogate? Three kisses, three different stories.  Let us know via the comment section below.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Nikki is Tempted by the Bottle, Victoria & Cole Ponder if Claire Could be Their Daughter

On Monday’s December 4th recap of The Young and the Restless, the Newmans are reeling from the trauma they each endured after being kidnapped drugged, slashed, poisoned and in Nikki’s (Melody Thomas Scott) case, given an IV bag filled with booze and then finding herself giving in to her addiction and downing the rest of the bottle left behind.

It appears the Newman family are not catching the signals that Nikki is tempted to drink again, in fact, Cole (J. Eddie Peck) was talking about needing a bourbon, right in front of her!

As they try to gather themselves, and as Nikki stares at bottles of liquor, Victor (Eric Braeden) reveals he had Aunt Jordan (Colleen Zenk) investigated which, according to his research, Jordan is the half-sister of Eve Howard (the late Margaret Mason).  He goes on to inform the family that Jordan was a traveling nurse and somehow was at the hospital when Cole and Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) daughter, Eve was born pre-mature and eventually ‘died.”


Adding this all up, it casts doubt that makes Victoria and Cole think, could Claire (Hayley Erin) really be their daughter Eve? After Victoria becomes overwhelmed, she walks out on the family conversation.

Cole goes after her and they sit outside Crimson Lights and have a heart-to-heart, where they come to the realization that Claire could really be the baby they grieved for all those years ago.

Back at the Newmans, Nikki is clearly struggling with: the ordeal she has been through, the guilt she feels for not being strong enough to fend off Claire and Aunt Jordan, and for hiring Claire in the first place! She is one step away from taking a drink.

At the end of the episode, Cole and Victoria decide they need to head to the prison where Claire is being held to get some answers from her.

So, what did you think of the fallout from Aunt Jordan’s heinous plot against the Newmans? Waiting for Nikki to fall further off the wagon? Are you convinced that Claire will indeed turn out to be “Eve”, or do you hope there is yet another twist to this story? Comment below.

And make sure to check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s recent livestream conversation with The Young and the Restless’ Hayley Erin below with insight into what’s to come as Claire/Eve’s story moves further along and more, below

THE GOLDEN BACHELOR Finale: Gerry Makes His Choice Breaking One Woman’s Heart and Getting Ready to Marry His New Love in a TV Special

Just when you think The Golden Bachelor has come to an end, think again! The look at love through the lens of seniors attempting to open their hearts later in life has been a ratings winner for ABC. The series has touched many and has given hope to others, even though, this is, after all, a reality show!

On Thursday night, it all came down to which woman would Gerry choose after bringing both Theresa and Leslie to meet his daughters and granddaughters, all in an effort to get their thoughts on each of the finalists.

Host Jesse Palmer teased during the live finale watch party –  in front of a studio audience – and at home on the east and central time zones – that the show will have, “an ending that’s going to shock you to your core. It really is that emotional.”  Was it the actual ending that was emotional, Jesse … or, was it before the conclusion when Gerry tore Leslie’s heart to pieces?

Photo: ABC

After seemingly becoming more confused after both women meet with his family, and receiving their feedback which was very positive for both Theresa and Leslie, Gerry said he felt the weight of this decision more than ever, and in this moment.

Things go south and give viewers a clue of what is to come, when he gives Leslie a hug, before they go their separate ways, but gave Theresa an “I love you.”

Leslie can sense that something is off. Later in her room, Gerry visits her and says, “Thanks for everything you’ve done for me and I hope I’ve done the same for you.”  What?  To make things worse, Leslie tells him how happy he makes her. Gerry’s response is only, “thanks for that.”  Followed by “Be happy. I think it’s time for me to go.” Gerry exits as the in-studio audience is devastated for Leslie.

To make things worse and official, after crying in the stairwell, Gerry comes back to Leslie’s room and they have it out. “I’ve kind of made a decision about how I want to go about this. I have fallen in love with Theresa, and that’s the direction I’m going to take.”  Leslie is blindsided: “So everything you told me the other night was a complete and total lie?” In the best moment of the series, when Gerry attempts to tell Leslie how to feel, she tells him she’ll feel however the f**k she wants to.

Next, the producers try to show us that Gerry has a heart, by including footage of him anguishing over hurting Leslie, and even an awkward hug-it-out moment with Jesse Palmer as comfort.

Now back to the live studio audience, and Leslie is there to address what happened, and as you might expect she was still crushed and hurt, because the hardest thing for viewers to watch was how candid she was about how she never felt she had the right man, a good man, and always lost at love. Gerry comes to the stage, and the two are cordial, but she has not forgiven him, nor should she.

As Gerry’s journey continues on the big screen, it’s the big day.  Theresa professes her love for him at their engagement ceremony.  Both Gerry and Theresa lost their spouses to illness after more than 40 years of marriage, so it makes sense that they would wind up together.  Gerry gets down on one knee, something Theresa shared never happened in her first engagement to her beloved ex-husband and hands her the final very special golden rose.

Photo: ABC

When Gerry and Theresa are together for the first time as engaged in front of the live studio audience, it is announced that their wedding is fast-tracked! And the ceremony will air on ABC on January 4th (8pm ET/7PM CT) in a special event entitled The Golden Wedding, and the duo are getting a trip to Italy to boot!

So, what do you think? Did Gerry pick the right woman? Were you gutted for Leslie? What do you think of the marriage happening so soon? Comment below.
