Cane’s Downward Spiral!
THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Cane shows up for Devon’s New Year’s Eve bash, but he is not exactly in a partying mood! “This is a very emotional time of the year for Cane,” says executive producer/headwriter Mal Young. “He’s far away from the love of his life, Lily, so he’s battling his own demons over this.”
Alas, most of those demons are his own feelings. “Cane likes to have things neat and tidy and in control,” shares the scribe. “But suddenly, his life has spun out of control. He feels like he’s letting his family down, his children down. He wasn’t responsible for any of this, but he feels responsible. He feels like he needs to fix something, but he’s powerless!”
And when people feel powerless, they sometimes do irrational things! “Lily is becoming institutionalized. She’s had to throw herself into the life she has at the moment,” Young points out. “Cane feels like she’s slipping through his fingers… and as we go into January, he starts to act out in some surprising ways — which will spin things out of control even more!”
Cane’s new year may be no happier than the old one!
