Quote trs779: I thought that the episode depicting Billy with Delia was truly one of the most moving episodes I have ever seen. I cried from beginning to end and I am generally not moved to tears while watching the show. To see the closeness of their relationship shown through the imagined future was in my opinion brilliant. I could genuinely feel their connection in each stage from dating to marriage to baby and then the final goodby. When they showed the change in the elevator from Delia as an adult to Delia as a child, I lost it. I could only imagine the multitude of storylines and reactions that will emanate from this horrific tragedy. I found myself almost dreading driving.
It was an episode as poignant as this one which makes "The Young and the Restless" continue to be for me (a soap opera devotee of over 30 years) my consistent favorite. I credit the writers, actors, producers and all who played a role in this episode for making it truly unforgettable.
To the degree that a fictional story can cause a person's heart to feel like it is breaking, this certainly accomplished that. It also allowed the character of Billy to show a depth and range that we are usually not permitted to see.
Congratulations on a job well done.
