Hours after viewing Monday's episode and I'm still livid. There are so many reasons why, that I don't even know where to begin...I've watched Y&R since day one. Yes, I get that this fiction. Yes, I believe in creative plot lines. Yes, I understand bad things happen to people (including children) in real life, too. But this recent story line has gone beyond the pale with the death of the character of Delia. This show is an escape for many viewers and somehow we can understand the need for characters to depart for a myriad of reasons, some at the control of producers and writers, others beyond that control. But to kill off a small child character is just toooo much!! As viewers, we've lost several key players of late: Mrs. C, Phyllis, for all practical reasons we might as well have lost Sharon (wth?), and now the decision to kill of the character of a small child, Delia. As a fan who has welcomed you into my homes for 40 years, you've worn out your welcome!!! The writing of late is ridiculous. It's insulting to my sensibilities. You have viewers of every age and demographic for whom THIS us just too close and too raw. Losing a child of this age is never ok because of the emotion and pain it evokes, IMHO. I'm pissed beyond words that Y&R has gone this far off the charts. You've not only broken the hearts of the show's main characters but the heats of your viewing family. Shame on you! I get where you're planning to take this plot. FAIL! smh The plots get more and more juvenile and predictable.
Writers can and should be replaced ASAP. When's the last time you won a daytime Emmy for the show??!! RIP Delia!! RIP Y&R!!
