We Speak Out
Like most fans, we were disheartened to learn that Eileen Davidson would be leaving THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS… but could she and alter ego Ashley have been given a better exit? The battle which seemingly began with that danged blood-abbott clause last year but in reality stretched back over decades tore the family apart even as viewers picked sides. By the time Jack finally confessed what Ashley needed to hear (“The darker truth is, I didn’t want to have to compete against you”), it was too little, too late. The final shots of Ashley toasting to Genoa City from the comfort of a jet as Jack stood, devastated and alone, in the Abbott living room were a fitting ending for a story years in the making.
