One of The Young and the Restless’ greatest storylines ever was the George Rawlins murder mystery. It began in the late 1980s and ran into early 1990. Doug Davidson, who calls the story Paul’s first adult tale, has produced some mini-documentaries on the saga to share on his Instagram page.
The Young and the Restless: A Look Back
In the latest installment, Davidson recalls how Paul and his dad, Carl (Brett Hadley), traveled to Bermuda to spy on George’s (Jonathan Farwell) widow Cassandra (Nina Arvesen) and her lover Adrian Hunter (Mark Derwin). “The Stories Behind The Stories – Episode 6 – The Bermuda Triangle,” Davidson titled his report.
“As always, a massive thanks to @joymathys, @calyssadavidson, and Gareth Murphy for making this happen. And a special shout out this episode to airboyd.tv, the Elbow Beach Resort in Bermuda, and of course, Ron Burgundy!”
In this segment, he jokes that a mustache he wore to disguise himself resembled the look Will Ferrell had in the film Ron Burgundy. On a more serious note, Carl and Paul were planning on Cassandra making a misstep and reveal that either she or Adrian or both of them were George’s true killers. Presumed dead, Paul rigged Cassandra’s room so she’d hear his ghostly words from the other side. Slowly, but surely, Cassandra started to break.
Carl showed Paul a photo of Adrian and Cassandra dancing. In it, she was wearing earrings that were reported stolen the night George was killed. That turned out to be enough evidence to arrest Cassandra and book her for first-degree murder. But was Cassandra guilty of killing George? Davidson will reveal more in the next chapter.
The George Rawlins mystery was one of YR’s most impactful stories. Davidson’s videos do the saga justice and hit all of the tale’s major beats. They’re also a hit with the actor’s fans. “That was fun!” says @debbiekuzio. “I don’t remember much of [email protected] back then so it’s nice to see you telling ‘The Story Behind The Story’. Thanks, I enjoy these!”
Stay tuned for Davidson’s next installment. Soap Hub will bring you a recap of it when it shows up. The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
