On Wednesday, CBS Daytime and The Young and the Restless is re-airing the classic 2005 episode of Cassie’s Death in an encore presentation being seeing around the country.  For those who miss the airing, they can see on CBS All-Access under Season 33.

Widely-known as the episode that will “get you every time’, it’s hard not to break down and reach for the hankies for this one, as time after time it still has the emotional pull and heart that has made it one of Y&R’s and soap’s best episodes of all-time.

In a very special interview to revisit taping those highly emotional and unforgettable moments, Michael Fairman chatted with the three stars of Y&R who made it so heartbreaking for fans of the series:  Joshua Morrow(Nick), Sharon Case (Sharon) and Camryn Grimes (Mariah) talk about … the unbreakable bond between them, taping those ‘death’ scenes, and Camryn also talks about coming back to Y&R years later as another character, Mariah Copeland, and much more.

The talented trio also share how great it is to finally be back at work since the production shutdown of COVID-19 forced new episodes of the series to be halted. But now they are back at CBS Television City, and share how that feels with all of the viewers.

The interview with Joshua, Sharon and Camryn was posted today on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, but you can also check it out below.

What have the ratings been like for these repeats? Is anyone tracking that? Also, can someone remind me why Mariah looks like Cassie. I’m only a sporadic viewer of Y&R. But I have enjoyed these old episodes very much.

I’m glad Camryn is back on Y&R.


Probably indeed one of SC & JM best acting I still cry my eyes out I have it taped I guess I will watch this was before LL came in and the destruction of Y&R started. I will never forgive the character of Nick his affair at the time his wife needed him most . You will never convince me that his true love was Phyllis it has and always will be Sharon no matter how the actors try to spin it. I adore Camryn Grimes but no I think the long list twin was not needed! When writers make… Read more »
