Jeanne Cooper and her iconic character Katherine Chancellor will be remembered in upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless when Genoa City has a ceremony for Mrs C.  at Chancellor Park for the one year anniversary of her death!

According to TV Guide, and arriving back on the scene for the episodes to air on August 26th and 27th, will be Tricia Cast (Nina) and actor Michael Fairman (Murphy)!

And finally, with all of that will come some resolution to the Music Box Mystery that Katherine sent Jill (Jess Walton) on over a year ago that has dragged out!

As previewed to us in this video interview below with Jess Walton at the recent Creative Arts Emmys Red Carpet, the Daytime Emmy winner shared with us  that the mystery would be revealed in short order, so this should be when it happens!

One other major plotpoint has that Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), who is teetering on the brink of dipping into the sauce once again, will apparently fall off the wagon at the same time of Katherine’s remembrance ceremony!  It’s all to much for the gal to take!

So, looking forward to the Music Box Mystery being resolved?  The return of Nina and Murphy and a boozin’ Nikki? And the series remembering Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper)?   Let us know your thoughts below!

Of all the actors gone from the show, its the one and only Jeanne Cooper i miss the most…maybe the music box leads to an unknown sister or brother of Katherine…i might return and watch for the memorial!!!

Love Murphy. They should pair him and Ester! I really dont care about Nina. They need to find someone new in Genoa City who is older and wiser to take Mrs. C’s place. Its not Jill! Her and Colin suck! I say bring in Jeanne Cooper’s real son and have him play a long lost son who is an SOB who throws Jill out on her A.. and people keep mistaking him for Father Todd. This isnt Father Todd. This new Chancelor guy is a hell raiser!

Timm, I could not disagree with you more. Jill and Colin are the best thing going on Y&R. Yes, the writing is not up to par and these two are worthy of better storylines.
However, the actors have risen about the mediocre, boring writing–they are worth watching.
I am, however, disappointed with the writing being afforded to Tristan Rogers–he is quite a gem and deserves so much better.

Yes Harry your right, sorry, its not the actors, they are legendary, its the writing. Whats new!

I agree; I love Jill and Colin. And I agree with their tepid dialogue. If it doesn’t pick up we’ll lose Tristen again.

I always thought that tracy would be the perfect person to take Katherine’s place as the go to person for advice and love.

Don’t really want to see Nikki hitting the bottle yet again for an extended period of time. Hope it’s not dragged out. Don’t care for this character at all.

Yeah, the character has been there and done that, sooooooo many times before! Let Nikki handle her problems without the assistance of booze or everyone coming to her rescue.

I suspect the music box story line was the brain child of Josh Griffith and went he left, the new writers had no idea what he had planned to do with it, so they have been scrambling ever since to figure a way to tie this thread to the new thread they started — and the result was this mishmash of a story as if the writers were making it up as they went along, changing their mind and starting over. And I suspect it felt that way because that is exactly what they were doing– but at least they… Read more »

There has to be a way to give Murphy and Nina air time and story. Murphy, tho now wealthy presumably, could work somewhere that keeps him engaged in the lives of Katherine’s intimates. Nina is a writer and could-be media person. I would like to see her in place, too. She was Christine’s best friend once upon a time. And friendly with Paul, right? If there is no front-burner story, then make these characters supporting roles, part of the daily lives of the leads.

I’m not really interested in seeing Nikki hit the bottle again either.
I don’t see it as a necessary plot device.
I am looking forward to a Mrs. C memorial tho.

Good Lord, this show has just collapsed since Ms. Cooper passed away. Y&R was a show that I never missed, now I might watch it twice a month. The stories go at such a slow pace that I know I’m not missing anything at all. Talk about boring. These writers and producers are running this show into the ground. Gee, Nikki gets drunk again? How many times have we seen that? UGH.

SO EXCITED to hear that my dear MTS is about to become a vodka swilling train wreck again!! 🙂 Must see TV, folks!!

So excited for the Kay remembrance episodes, too!

How much do you love Y&R!?!

Melody Thomas Scott plays an incoherent drunk better than anyone!!! Well…her and Linda Gray as Sue Ellen!! But I hope if the show does have Nikki bangin’ the booze back, I hope they remember that she has MS now…and how alcohol can affect that condition. The show seems to have had no real reason for giving Nikki MS and it hasn’t been prominent in story so far. It could be a very hard hitting true to live story about diseases and alcoholism.

Tricia Cast is so wonderful as Nina. Too bad they cannot find story that keeps her on board and dump some of the boring stories/actors.

I might DVR the memorial episode…first one I will have watched in 8 months. IMO, the ONLY decent thing that has aired since JFP took over was the Jeanne Cooper tribute show. Everything else has flowed downhill and not worth watching.

Michael, I’ve been dying to ask you this question. Are you related to Murphy? Michael Fairman? Just curious.

I think “mystery” is generous in regards to that music box mess but here’s hoping the resolution is more believable than a terminally ill woman in her 80’s climbing a ladder to hide a necklace in a chandelier. Based on Colin’s reaction when he saw the photo of Rachel Berenson I thought she might be his mother and he was Kay’s half-brother as a result of Rachel’s affair with Kay’s father but long term plotting doesn’t seem to be this show’s strong point these days. The show needs to bring Tricia Cast back full time and drop Austin, Summer, Avery,… Read more »

I love Nina, Please bring back Tricia Cast Full time on The Young and The Restless. Get rid of Christine slash Cricket, I hope Phyllis squashes Cricket like a bug. LOL. I WANT Murphy to romance Jill or ESTHER. I want Elizabeth Hubbard to be Katherines, long lost sister. I loved Elizabeth as Lucinda Walsh on as The World Turns. She is a wonderful actress, imagine Jess Walton and Elizabeth Hubbard in scenes, they would kick ass. Love them both.

Ricardo…Y-E-S Y-E-S Y-E-S!!!!! Dude…I am TOTALLY ONBOARD with you on this!!!!! Nina is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE Y&R character…EVER…HOLLA!!!!! I wish that Nina (and her VERY FABULOUS portrayer Tricia Cast) would come back to Y&R FOR GOOD (and not just for a short-term visit or whatever)!!!!! Also…that’s funny…Murphy romancing either Jill or Esther??? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Or…how about a (get this) Esther/Murphy/Jill love triangle??? Can you imagine Esther and Jill fighting over Murphy??? Poor Murphy…LOL!!!!! By the way, more and more, Colin is WORKING MY NERVES…BLAH!!!!! Idiot. Also…I think that is a WONDERFULLY INTERESTING IDEA…the possibility of Elizabeth Hubbard joining the Y&R cast.… Read more »

I’m a huge Nina fan and really wish that the writers could find a better way to use her than has been done over the past few years. Besides Jack and Ashley Abbott, I’ve always thought Nina was one of the most interesting characters. She started out as young scheming girl from the wrong side of the tracks who ultimately grew into a very devoted mother who still has enough of her “street ways” to call a spade a spade when needed. Besides Brock and Jill, Nina really is the only character with a true connection to Kay. She would… Read more »

It will be nice to see Nina and Murphy again but the music box storyline is not and never has been the slightest bit interesting, I couldn’t care less about it, and sadly we have two of the most talented actors on the show (Jess and Tristen) in this stupid boring storyline.

It would appear on the surface that Nikki, lost her balance, and her way without her loving dear friend, mother, supporter, and Victor cannot fill the void for his wife however , having her once again return to drinking,is clearly not in the vest interest of creative writing and story telling. enough of this please, I never understood the mystery box, will someone please explain it in derail. First there was the mystery woman during the war, and the picture that resembled Mrs. c,and the jewelry the necklace, etc……I love Murphy, and Nina can do no wrong in my book….I… Read more »

Carlos…YES YES YES!!!!! Murphy is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!! And…to me, Nina will N-E-V-E-R do anything wrong in my book…AT ALL!!!!! Most of all, I TOTALLY AGREE with you about that self-righteous and bland-filled Christine…B-L-A-H!!!!!! I wish that Paul would see the E-R-R-O-R of his ways…as in…D-I-V-O-R-C-I-N-G that whiny Christine…and (from there) then get back together with Nina. To me, Paul was WAY MORE INTERESTING AND INTRIGUING when he was with Nina!!!!! With Christine…N-O W-A-Y, man!!!!! The Bottom Line (at least for me): TEAM NINA!!!!!!

Take care, Carlos. A-C-E-S!!!!!!!

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

‘That’s A Wrap’ For Dynasty’s Elizabeth Gillies & Adam Huber As They Share Farewells

The fifth and final season of CW’s Dynasty is currently playing out with the series finale to air in the early fall.

However, filming on the show wrapped this past week for series star Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) and her on-screen husband, Adam Huber (Liam).  Each of them took to their Instagrams to share heartfelt goodbyes and ‘thank you’s’ for the journey they traveled as part of the reboot of the classic ABC primetime soap opera with its own twist.

Huber shared his thoughts, when he expressed: “That’s a wrap!! When I got the call in 2017 that I was going to be flying out to Atlanta to join the show DYNASTY for a few episodes I had no idea what it would turn into. 4 years of my life and 84 episodes later is what happened. I am beyond grateful for this show. This is the first time I’ve ever really been apart of something like this. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve cried a lot. And I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime.

A huge thank you to anyone and everyone who was with me on this journey. Thank you to my friends and family for your non stop love and support. My manager and agents who are absolute rockstars. The crew that wakes up day after day working lonnnng hours so we can have a finished product. The writers, directors and producers for making this show the success that it is. The casting director for saying “I think I found our Liam” The entire cast for being so welcoming from the first day I stepped foot on set. The day players, extras, stand ins, all of you!!

And gigantic thank you to all the fans!!! Thank you for staying with us the whole time during this wild ride. Without you watching and binging on whatever platform you watch the show on, we would have not been able to bring you 5 seasons and 108 episodes of DYNASTY craziness. Thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart. This has been an experience I will never forget! 🖤Ps…new episode tonight!! I hope you enjoy the rest of the season! It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

Gillies, simply brought out her inner-Fallon with her Instagram post which said, “Every day, I take one man’s dirt and turn it into diamonds. And digging up insider info is even easier when they assume you work for the airline, instead of owning the plane. Bon Voyage, Fallon 🥂”

Elizabeth’s co-stars were quick to heap praise on the talented actress/singer/director (she directed the two most recent episodes of the series). Rafael de La Fuente who plays Sammy Jo, expressed: ‘What a gift for me to get to work with you for five years. Forever a fan, forever family.”

Pop superstar, Arianna Grande, a longtime friend, and Broadway co-star with Gillies in the musical 13, posted: “Oh my.congratulations, my Liz, on completing this massive and magnificent chapter with Fallon.  she is / you are utterly spectacular. !!!!!!!!! love youuu. sm.”

You can check out their farewell posts below.

So, sad to know that Liz and Adam have wrapped their run as the fifth and final season of Dynasty is coming to a close? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
