Much as I like YOUNG AND RESTLESS's Cane and Lily as a couple, I'm getting tired of all of these outside obstacles interfering in their relationship. First it was Chloe, then it was Cane having lied about his identity, then it was Lily having cancer and now they're being pursued by angry Australians. Enough! I realize that they're supposed to be that couple that battles the odds and is always in love, no matter what, but even the happiest marrieds go through rough times. Raising twins right after recovering from cancer can't be easy for Lily, especially since she's such a young mom. What if the show had a story about how she's trying to balance parenthood and college? Or how Cane is torn between working longer hours as a businessman and being there for his family? These are issues that many new parents deal with, and if written well, are definitely not boring. I'd love to see some more character-based stories for this pair and get a break from the plot-driven Sturm und Drang.
