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 a decision you need to just live with it and move on .

I watched the episode but it was the first time I’ve seen it. Very good episode. I cried.

Yes it was a tear jerker then & now love camryn grimes at such a young age she was holding her own watching her n her sister faith grow up has been cool to watch

When is Y n r showcasing ‘Nick and Sharon’ week? These two are the supercouple that never gets old!
I’ d love to see the kiss on the bridge in Paris again, Matt Clark/ Sharon/ Nick, Sharon/ Nick/ Phyliss, Nick and Sharon make love in the cabin which Sharon ends up pregnant with Faith, Nick/ Sharon/ Adam, Adam steals faith for Ashley etc..
These two deserve a week!

This episode was on my recorder but I chose not to watch it again, once was enough and C.G did an outstanding job which she still does every time she’s on. I also could not watch Sharon and Nicki in the sewer with the rats, ugh! I wonder what happened to the actor that played Larry. After coming to Nick’s rescue in prison he continued to be there for the Newman’s and had a fling with Jill, if I remember right. I thought he was a great talent.


Brian Gaskill Previews Seth’s Next Move on The Young and the Restless: “It’s the Beginning of Everything”

Coming up on the Friday, March 1st episode of The Young and the Restless be on the lookout for what could send Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) into yet another spiral with her alcohol addiction.

As viewers have recently witnessed, Jordan (Colleen Zenk), in disguise with red wig, has become ‘fast’ friends with Seth as a drinking buddy at a local dive bar. She has been egging him on to become ‘friends’ with Nikki, but also cited to him, how Nikki disappeared on her when she needed help in her attempt to get sober (all fabricated, of course).

Seth was able to get Nikki to agree to meet him one day for coffee or for an outing, even though she knows that he is also struggling to get sober and was not going to be a good AA sponsor for her.  Now, the trap is set.

Taking to his account on X, Gaskill shared on Wednesday, “Look for me Friday I think on Young and the Restless (tomorrow in Canada) pay attention. It’s the beginning of everything…”

Gaskill returned to daytime television in early January in his new recurring role on Y&R. Soap fans previously knew of his work as Bobby Warner on All My Children, Rafe Kovich on Port Charles, Ozzy Marone on The Bold and the Beautiful and Dylan Lewis on Guiding Light.

So, what are you theories of what’s about to go down? Will Seth lure Nikki into a trap knowing or unknowingly? Will he become obsessed with her? Will Jordan sneak into the Newman Ranch, and terrorize Nikki? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

In the meantime for some clues of what’s next in Nikki’s battle with the bottle, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s recent interview with Melody Thomas Scott below.

Vivica A. Fox, Jonelle Allen and Sally Sussman Revisit ‘Generations’ Classic Catfight and If They Would Be Down for a Revival

As it is Black history month, you can’t help but a shed a light on the groundbreaking soap opera, Generations. It was almost 35-years ago that NBC took a gamble on a new soap opera with an African-American family at its epicenter.

Generations was created by renowned soap opera writer, Sally Sussman and premiered back on Monday, March 27, 1989. Ironically, the show was up against the top-rated daytime drama The Young and the Restless and for 13 months it landed in the bottom of the ratings, until NBC canceled it in January 1991.

One of the most memorable moments in the series short history was a knock-down drag-out catfight between the characters of Maya (Vivica A. Fox) and Doreen (Jonelle Allen), with the late Kristoff St. John (Adam Marshall) in the middle of it all.

Speaking with, Fox recalled, “We just didn’t want it to look fake, because there’s nothing worse when you can see the stunt double. As you can see, I kind of dig doing fight scenes.”

Allen offered up: “The lines were scripted. What we were doing while we were saying them – the earrings and all of that stuff — was not. I added the kicking off the shoes and the pulling up the train. The actors didn’t get hurt, but the cameraman could have, because when I kicked off my shoes, I kicked my shoe so far it almost hit the camera!”

Jonelle also remembered Kristoff almost getting injured in the scenes, recalling: “He almost got beaten up. We were so in it, and he’s trying to break us apart, but we were pumped. The fight itself was choreographed. Him walking in and breaking it up was not, so he could have gotten hurt. He just thought he’d come in and separate us, but we were still going at it.”

Sussman shared the scenes cultural impact: “It put the show in a different stratosphere. And I remember less than a year later, Y&R copied it. A lot of people copied it. All the subsequent (catfights) that have been forced upon people were not motivated. This one was so motivated, that even though Maya was the aggressor, you agreed with her. Doreen had it coming, but you can’t overstate how long (the tension) was built up between them.”

So, is it time for a Generations 2.0 ? Sussman believes it just might be, “Over the last number of years, several young writers – I’m talking very young, younger than 30 — who love soaps of all different stripes, have been reaching out to me about how much they love the show, because there are so many episodes on YouTube. They say how much they love the show, and that I must try and do a revival.”

Jonelle Allen says she would be down too, expressing: “Revisiting these people later, and then seeing all the babies that were born who would be adults now and seeing what’s up with their stories, would be exciting. And Sally’s a great storyteller.”

Vivica A. Fox summed it up best, “I would be totally game for a revival …. I’d love to see soap operas make a comeback.”

So, did you watch ‘Generations’ when it aired on NBC? Do you recall your reaction to the Maya and Doreen catfight? And with Peacock streaming Days of our Lives, would they consider a series order for a reboot of a series such as ‘Generations’ too? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below. But first, check out that classic catfight!

The Young and the Restless’ Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) is rarely on his own social media accounts, let alone his account on X (formerly Twitter).
