Y&R’s Lily is staring down the barrel of a stretch in prison over Hilary’s death
1 Her hatred for Hilary undid her ultimately
It’s never been a secret that Lily (Christel Khalil) hated her stepmother-turned-sisterin-law Hilary (Mishael Morgan). The two regularly clashing over Hilary’s involvement with the Winters men. Long considering Hilary to be a money-hungry tramp who used her body to charm Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Devon (Bryton James), Lily never believed that her mentorship of troubled young girl Shauna (Camryn Hamm) was sincere either. After discovering Shauna and her son Charlie (Noah Alexander Gerry) were getting intimate in Hilary and Devon’s deserted apartment, Lily’s anger was palpable as she blamed Hilary for encouraging them. This history will inform her punishment.
2She ran the red light and caused the crash
As Shauna unknowingly ed the apartment, Lily and Hilary’s argument became so heated that when they realised she was missing, they raced after her without thinking of the consequences. Snapping, sniping and slinging insults in the car, Lily and Hilary failed to notice an oncoming truck as Lily drove through the intersection, causing the smash on Hilary’s side of the vehicle. It’s factual evidence that a court of law simply can’t deny.
3Charlie & Shauna saw the whole thing
Sitting in the back seat, Charlie had an uncomfortable perspective on his mother and Hilary’s verbal clash and although he’s maintained Lily’s carelessness behind the wheel was an accident, he hasn’t denied that she didn’t see the red traffic signal. Also seeing the crash from the across the street, Shauna got a pivotal bird’s eye view of events and knows that her testimony in court could determine Lily’s ultimate fate – and so will Charlie’s.
4 Devon wants revenge!
Twisted in grief, and plagued by memories of Lily’s Lily longtime hatred for Hilary, Devon continues to ignore Lily’s version of events, insisting that a part of his sister wanted Hilary to die. He believes the only just punishment for her ‘mistake’ is a stint in prison and is vowing to have her prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. He could even commit perjury to ensure that happens.
5Lily’s guilty conscience
No matter how often she maintains what happened was unfortunate, Lily still can’t shake her guilt over the thought of not only killing Hilary, but also the baby she and Devon were expecting. If she’s not thinking clearly in court, she could “confess” to something she later regrets.
6Friends and family aren’t helping
Afraid of confessing her feelings publicly, Lily recently con ded in Sharon (Sharon Case) that’s been having nightmares of the accident and believes she’s killed Devon, too. Sharon counselled that she has to forgive her mistake but that’s easier said than done. Meanwhile Charlie and twin sis Mattie (Lexie Stevenson) are fatalistic that their mother will have to serve jail time and have been trying to make iy easier by researching what women’s prisons are really like! , Lily has encouraged them to stay positive but behind closed doors she’s tearful, scared to death that she’ll die if she’s locked up.
