Why Did They Kill Delia?

Postby deceived » Mon Oct 28, 2013 3:56 pm

Why did they kill Delia? Does anyone have an idea? Didn't they need her to connect Billy, Chloe, The Abbotts, to grow up with Faith, Johnnie, etc...

There was a thread (probably pushed down a couple of pages by now) that says that JFP killed off Delia so that actors/actresses would potentially get emmies. I read the first post and was so disgusted that I had to get out of it. Apparently, there was an article or a something-or-other, which JFP is saying that she killed off Delia for "them"...Hope I interpreted it correctly, but that was my take on the part of the post...

JFP killed Dehlia for shock value, and it is totally sick. I am 50 years old, and I have watched Y and the R since I was 10 - and I am no longer watching. The show is now dark, has creepy music, and reminds me more of "Dark Shadows" when I was little. JFP needs to really be careful in her storylines - ATWT was a lot better written soap when it was cancelled, and it is now replaced by that awful "The Talk". Even Y and R is not protected. Who would ever think we would not have ATWT's Lily and Holden and Reva Shayne on Guiding Light? I find her Dehlia storyline to be disgusting, and no wonder Lily and Sharon are carefully watching their kids. There is a Mack truck around the corner! Watch out kids!

Apparently to give the actor/actress meaty s/l. But my only problem was the killing was graphic. She could have given Delia any disease and let her die same effect. But she wanted the buzz so she killed her in this horrible way. And will drag it out with a who dunnit s/l on top of everything else. Hope this doesn't last has long as Summer paternity s/l that was just be gross. To ruin all actors involve by leaving them in a dark place.

Also, why would JFP repeat the Colleen and Victor storyline where the deceased Colleen gives Victor her heart? It is so silly that the Abbotts die to give the Newmans needed organs. How insulting to our intelligence... I could write a better soap! Let's see . . . .with JFP at the helm, which is the next Abbott to die to give a Newman a needed organ? How retarded. This is not the awesome Y and the R that I grew up with and watched over the years.

I couldn't agree with you more. To tragically kill a precious 7 year old girl by a car on a dark night after her Halloween play is written by a sick cookie.

Graphic? What are you talking about? Nobody saw her get hit. We didn't even see her on the ground. It would have been worse if our last memory of Delia was of her looking deathly for episodes on end. To each his own, I guess.

Yes, it was sad to see Delia die that way. I enjoyed watching her in each episode, she was so cute. But who expects a child, dressed in black to run across the road in the dark of night? Most drivers would not expect that and it's not their fault 100%. It was an unfortunate accident.

lol! I used to watch Dark Shadows as well and that show was so eerie and scary. I agree on the killing off of Delia. Its just something wrong with this. I for one dont want to be sad and depressed just to watch this show. Ive heard bad things about this JP and her ex soaps she ran into the ground. I think Y&R is in trouble down the road due to this horrific kind of writing.

I agree while tragic is wasn't graphic ,,not by a long shot, we never saw her get hit or worked on after the accident and I was pleased we didn't have to see the little actress play dead no instead she smiled and wave goodbye to her daddy....as sad of a story as it is the young actress wasn't subjected to a lot of emotional upset and I'm happy she didn't have to deal the emotional impact of the story.
