Y&R Utilizes Flashback Of Jeanne Cooper's Final Scene As Jill Recalls The Color Of Katherine's Mansion "Forget Me Not Yellow"

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

Did you grab for the hankies? The Young and the Restless utilized the final scene between the iconic duo, Katherine and Jill, played by the late Jeanne Cooper and her longtime scene partner, Jess Walton, in a very creative way on Monday’s episode of the CBS daytime drama series.

It came about after Jill tells Billy (Jason Thompson) her plans for Brash & Sassy, and how he will work alongside of Cane (Daniel Goddard).  Billy accepts her deal, and as Jill looks around at the blue-colored home of her son, which was formerly the mansion of Katherine Chancellor,  she looks down at the yellow can of paint near the entranceway wall and recalls the last time she saw Katherine saying goodnight to her as she heads up the stairs.

At the end of the flashback, Jill takes the paint brush and puts the yellow paint on the wall and says to Billy, “This is the color. Forget Me Not Yellow.”

After the jump watch the scene as Y&R and Jess, remember Jeanne and Katherine Chancellor.  Then share your thoughts at seeing the one and only Jeanne Cooper again on your screens.

A little off topic but related…Am watching a rerun of a Castle with Corbin Bernson, son of Jeanne. Ironically the title of the episode, which is about a murder on a soap opera set, “One Life To Lose,” yet also stars Greenlee/Hayden and Ryan from AMC. Also Jane Seymour and Castle’s mom, Susan Sullivan from Falcons Crest. Whatever, Castle has always been great about bringing in our soap favorites. Another reason it will be missed.

It would be nice to see Corbin Bernson return to Y&R in an “All About Katherine” episode.

Additional Comment: With the dedication of a new portrait of “Mrs. C.” Jeanne Cooper deserves an oil painting like Victor Newman.

Susan also was in daytime…she is best remembered as Lenore Moore Curtain Delaney on Another World for five years-she was on the short-lived A World Apart and as a ghost on Dark Shadows…

I am pleased that Victor is out of jail, and they didn’t drag out a long court case that was kind of them.

Elaine, I am not pleased at all that Victor is out of jail. He will never change. I just don’t know how Nikki can be so dumb, and keep going back for more every time, with all, the nonsense Victor has pulled through the years. You understand, of course, that I have absolutely nothing against Eric Braeden or Melody Thomas Scott, who have always been beyond outstanding in their roles, it’s just their characters I am totally fed up with. This is just a theory of mine, but I think that Victor was just acting nice toward his family to… Read more »

Wow, Michael, what a great trip down Memory Lane! Jamie Lyn Bauer was the reason I started watching Y&R and when Jeanne Cooper joined, I was hooked for life! Lorie Brooks was a true soap original and I would love to see Jamie Lyn back in ANY capacity. And I agree about Victor. That verdict was appalling and was just made so that the “wise” judge could protect his 40ish daughter as if she were a teenager. And don’t get me started on Chloe. I hope it is Chelsea that brings them both down and Adam home. I find this… Read more »

Thank you, Soaphound! I’m glad I’m not the only one who would like to see Jaime Lyn Bauer return as Lorie Brooks. However, I recently read that she is supposed to return to Days of Our Lives in Seotember, as Dr. Laura Horton, #5. You know, Susan Flannery, who played Dr. Laura Horton #2, on DOOL, and Jaime Lyn Bauer, have two things in common: Not only did they both play Dr. Laura Horton on DOOL, but they both played the wife of actor John McCook on two other soaps. Jaime Lyn Bauer, on The Young and the Restless, where… Read more »

Hi, Soaphound, Funny, how great minds think alike…LOL. I agree….Chloe’s bizarre behavior with Chelsea will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. She really is insane, albeit I understand the pain over losing Delia. Grief of this magnitude affects people differently and sometimes drastically. Chelsea is not one of my faves, but she is a ‘guttersnipe’, wise to the world, no matter how hard TPTB are trying to ‘install’ a halo over her head. she will figure it out. She has the smarts to smell a rat: Chloe!!!!!! I think this will turn out to be Adam’s only salvation.… Read more »

I Was thrilled to see the flashback, Oh how I miss Kay. I can see a big change in the way Mal Young produces v/s the horrible JFP. Nice to see Jill, the mansion and even the Newman Ranch. Y&R might just be saved. Great episode, Thank you for showing the Jess Walton/Jeanne Cooper final scene.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Toscanti–I see the difference too. Honestly, it doesn’t take a lot to make soap fans happy and paying fidelity to the show’s history counts for a lot.
The flashback was unexpected and therefore, packed a more powerful whallop. Jess Walton’s acting was spot on–poignant and so heartfelt it didn’t seem like acting.
That final goodbye scene played as though both actresses knew at the time that it was their final scene together. I remember watching it at the time it aired and just knowing that was Katherine’s final goodnight.

LOVE having Jill back. I am hoping the powers that be make her stay permanent one. I r3member watching that scene when it first aired. I cried then, and I cried then, and I cried yesterday also. It is nice to see that Jill and Cane still have their closeness. Having mixed thoughts on the Victor situation, but I did enjoy the end when Chole came out of hiding. It woulnd be nice to see Victor on th3 other side for a change. I hoping that things are slowly taking a turn for the better.

The actress prefers to be recurring so she isn’t tied down to the show. She doesn’t even live in California anymore, I believe, so I don’t think Jill would ever become a “permanent” character again unless the role was recast — and no one wants that!

Michael
Guest

As any long-time fan of The Young and the Restless knows, the late Jeanne Cooper’s first scene was in November 1973 with the original Jill, Brenda Dickson, who played the role from 1973-1980, and again, from 1983-1987. Jill was a manicurist then, and Katherine Chancellor came into the beauty salon, which I believe was called Hazel’s, named for the lady who owned the salon, and Katherine was dragging one of her very expensive furs, and asked Jill to pick it up for her, and the rest, as they say, is history. Thus began soap opera’s longest-running feud. Since then, we… Read more »

Thank you, Harry. Nice to hear from you again. Always a pleasure. Yes, I have been a very loyal fan of Y&R since day one, but some of these present day characters are really getting on my nerves now. Victor, as you know, is out of jail, but he will never change. You know he will still get revenge on all of his family, and I would not feel sorry for any of them, if that were to happen, because they should have all known better than to help with his appeal. We’ll see what happens. Thank you, again, Harry,… Read more »

That was a cool scene. I’ve said this before, loved Jeanne and she is a legend BUT I really think they missed out on not recasting the part because it is a huge hole not having Mrs. C on the show. They pissed all over the mansion and her park, well various crimes have been committed there. UNLESS Jeanne asked them not to kill off her character, I would have reacsted. I surely dont know her but part of me sees her as a Wiley old coot that told them “When I die, Katherine Dies!” Or maybe she said “Do… Read more »

I don’t feel that a recast would have worked.
However, a long lost younger sister or cousin would have worked.
I have suggested about a million times that Erika Sleazak should have been cast as a long lost Chancelor relative who claims the mansion as her own.
She could have gone toe to toe with Jill over the Chancellor estate and yes, she could have taken Katherine’s place as the wise matriarch to whom folks turn for some good solid advice. Erika could have pulled this off.

Timmm

Harry, you are probably right, no matter who took over for Jeanne, it probably would have never been good enough! I LOVE your long lost sister or cousin idea. Report to ABC immediately!

I also wanted to say, Harry and Timmm, that these four ladies did a great job playing Katherine Chancellor, and it worked because they were only temporary recasts. You could never replace a Y&R legend like Jeanne Cooper, permanently. I do love your idea, Harry, of Erika Slezak, formerly Viki of One Life to LIve, being a long-lost relative of Katherine’s, who would fight Jill for the Chancellor estate. Wouldn’t that be great?! You know, Viki on OLTL, was originally played by Gillian Spencer, Joanne Dorian, Erika Slezak, who has played Viki the longest, and is the best-known Viki, and… Read more »

O.M.Goodness I cried like a baby. She was true class & I miss her so much. Although John Abbott is not dead I also love when they bring him on as a ghost talking to Jack. I hope that this means there going to paint that drab place back to it’s original beauty. Kathrine had it so bright and beautiful. Billy version looks like a morgue. I hope we get to see more Kathrine memories from Jill and it is so nice to see her back.

I agree Tim. Then maybe we can get it looking like it use to. They did the same thing to Victor’s ranch. It was just beautiful, Sharon burnt it to the ground and now it looks like a condo. I have nothing against condo’s( I live in one) but to go from that stunning ranch to this is awful. Did you notice they have the same front door as in the ranch? Guess that door didn’t burn!

Timmm
Guest

Its the #1 soap, they have SOME money! I wonder if they can green screen the ranch and mansion? The technology is there. But anyway, I hate the Newman Ranch. Condos are cool BUT Victor is a billionaire right? How about something elaborate? At least they didnt ruin the Abbott home yet unless you include Marco, Billy and Phyllis’s love juice ! Eww!

Nikki and Timmm, that is so funny about the same door on the Newman ranch. Yes, the door was the only thing that didn’t burn with the original ranch. LOL! Only on the soaps! I love what you said, Timmm, about Marco, Billy and Phyllis. LOL! So true. Yes, I think the Abbott mansion is the most beautiful house on Y&R today. Another beautiful house from Y&R’s very early years, was the Brooks house. The Brooks and Foster families were the two core families in the beginning. Although the Foster house was very modest, because the family was poor, it… Read more »

You are so right April. Every Year around the end of November the Newman ranch would decorate their big beautiful tree in the living room and I couldn’t decide who had a more elegant living room the Newman’s or the Abbott’s. Do you remember when the camera’s would take shots of the horses outside in a white fenced are, then showed the front door and would continue with the story? There was a big beautiful pool in the back yard and every 4th. of July we’d see them have a bbq and Victor would give a speech. Sharon/Nick/ all the… Read more »

A prime piece of real estate given to an actor for taking over a leading role. And the first order of business was to dismantle all that was Katherine Chancellor. It doesn’t matter whose idea it was to change the mansion. Billy Abbott needs to move out and any excuse will do.

I know there are many Victor fans on this board. I just can’t with this guy. It’s more about the writing than Mr. Braeden, I suppose. I just hate the stupidity of it all.

B&B’s Matthew Atkinson On Gaining Custody of Douglas: “Thomas Just Wants to Take His Rightful Place”

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) wants to be more of an active father to his son, Douglas (Django Ferri), who has been living with Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton).

When confronted with this news, Hope is not too happy, because she could lose being mother to the little boy, who she has come to love as her own.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), Atkinson shared on the story: “Thomas just wants to take his rightful place. He’s not saying they are no longer a family. It’s just the opposite.  He’s not prying Douglas away from Hope.  He knows Douglas has bonded with Hope, Liam and Beth, and he believes they can all make it work.”

The question is, will Thomas resort to extreme measures as he has in the past to get what he wants, or will he work this out with Hope and Liam?

Check out the latest promo for this week’s action on B&B below.

Now let us know, do you want Thomas to have more of a relationship with his son, Douglas? Should the boy live between all three ‘parents’? Should Douglas fight for solo custody? Comment below.
