Friday’s episode saw Finn shot (and seemingly killed) by his maniacal mother, Sheila. But if Finn Is die, is that where things end for him, or is there more to the story?

We like a lot The young and the restless, but lately the show is driving us crazy. So, we thought it was time to sort out all of our soap issues in hopes that a dose of tough love might help those in charge get things back on track.

Though thrilled to see the drama escalate as Victoria finally realized she’d been played by Ashland, Candace couldn’t help but hope the betrayed woman would soon move on from crying to vengefully.
