We Speak Out

CBS Soaps In Depth - - Contents - Part­ing Shots

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.
