Hilary only died earlier this month on The Young and the Restless (YR), but does Genoa City already feel duller without her?
No one is snarking with Mariah (Camryn Grimes). No one is breaking up and making up with Devon (Bryton James). No one is snarling at Lily (Christel Khalil), or playing the cool mom to Shauna (Camryn Hamm).
And Jack (Peter Bergman) just seems to be wandering around, looking for someone – anyone – who likes him. Plus, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) is sad. And that’s making her overlook what Summer (Hunter King) is up to with Billy (Jason Thompson).
Do you – and they – miss Hilary – whether or not she’s played by Mishael Morgan? The answers from almost 6,000 viewers provide a clue.
Yup, 58% say, a couple of weeks is too long to be without our Hilary. You could always count on her to make things interesting and to keep things hopping. Hilary could walk into a room, insult someone who’d done nothing to her, and, all of a sudden, a dull scene was a scene worth watching.
She had relationships – good and bad – with a large swath of the canvas, and she could be counted on to tell it like it is. Or, at least, how Hilary wanted it to be. Please come back. If everyone else in daytime can have nine lives, why not Hilary?
Enough Is Enough
Hey, remember how Hilary used to walk into a room and insult someone who’d done nothing to her? That was pretty annoying, 41% of you counter.
You’re actually enjoying a Genoa City without Hilary being a bitch for no reason – and taking offense when people who had perfectly good reasons were bitchy back to her.
You remember what she did to Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Devon, and how she went after Nate (Brooks Darnell). We’re all better off without her.
