The Young and the Restless is pre-empted today and an episode featuring Katherine Chancellor from 1990 was broadcast. Below is a recap of this classic episode that predates Soaps.com’s days of recapping. For those looking for the latest new episode of Y&R, read the recap about Mariah and Theo calling a truce.

Doug Davidson introduces classic episodes that some new viewers may find confusing. Because of that, Soaps.com is writing storyline synopses to keep everyone up to date. This week features Katherine Chancellor – today she comes face to face with Marge Cotroke, Kay’s look-alike-and imposter. He explains we’ll also see Cassandra Rawlins, who he called, “nothing but trouble.”

In a room, Katherine tells Esther to keep her eye on her constantly. When she gives the nod, Esther’s to offer them coffee, find the fusebox and a heavy pan, pull the switch, then hit the imposter over the head as hard as she can. Esther worries she won’t be able to do it, but Katherine stresses it’s a matter of life and death. A knock is heard. Katherine and Esther come face to face with Marge, who says, “Damn. It looks like we were poured out of the same bottle of ketchup.” The old couple with Marge can’t tell the difference. Katherine and Marge square off as Kay calls her an imposter. They circle one another. Kay would like to see Marge in hell. Marge scoffs that Mrs. Chancellor has no couth. Katherine warns they won’t get away with this. Marge plans on staying on that “jillion-acre estate” and needles about Kay’s husband “Sexy Rexy.” Katherine looks ready to lunge, so Esther suggests coffee. In the kitchen, Esther enacts the plan, then returns to the dark living room and konks someone out. Outside, Katherine gets into the waiting car to return to the Chancellor estate.
