Is There a Chance?

The Young and the Restless viewers had a dramatic week of speculation last week about the possibilities surrounding the character of Phillip ‘Chance’ Chancellor IV. The character, played by actor John Driscoll, was shot onscreen and pronounced dead, yet some viewers feel that Chance and Ronan may have faked his death in order to bring down the drug ring.

Is Chance really in hiding or in the Witness Protection Plan? It’s anyone’s guess, but can tell you that John Driscoll posted this message to his fans on Facebook last week after the episode aired: “Nothing like getting capped on National TV. Thank you Y&R and to all the fans, it was a great run and now i bid you all a fair ‘adieu’.”
