I like the way Brad was written off ... it leaves him to return in the future, if the show feels like he can come back.
Maybe one day he and Drucilla will return together.
I am glad to I was totally piss off with them killing him off, but I feel better if he could come back some day.
I never really realized how much I must've liked the character of Brad...When he was inching on his stomach across the creaking ice I found myself screaming at the TV, go back, don't follow the script!!! But I do like that he's "missing" MIA is much better than 6ft under.
One of the things I like best about the writing on Y&R is how they can change a character from jerk to hero in the blink of an eye. It wasn't long ago that I thought Brad was nothing but a trouble maker. Now I hate to see him go.
Just another character we love to hate
This proves the actor was doing his job. You are suppose to love to hate the bad guys. I really think Y&R blew this. I guess if they are putting Nick and Sharon back together they had nothing for him. But I think it would have been interesting seeing him and Victor fight for Abby and also maybe Ashley. He has such rich history with the show. But also may have done it so Colleen has a story and needs someone to lean on like JT and she may come between him and Vicki. At least it will give them something to do. I never saw such a dull couple as those two.
I agree I always thought there was so much they could have done with Brad like you said fighting over Abby. I also think it would have been a better story if Brad was the Dad of Victoria's baby and Victor had change the outcome. That just how I feel. Brad was never and evil guy he was just selfish at times and show me one other character on that show that isn't whan it suits them.
Could have been very interesting if he had a kid with Victoria. Maybe they are just writing him off for a short time and will bring him back. There is still so much there. He could have so many fights with Victor. I liked him so much and I am going to miss that smile.
How's this....Brad's body will never be found, leaving it open where he can come back at anytime. In the meantime somebody is buying up Newman stock causing Victor to panic and have to give up Newman Enterprises to the mystery stock grabber. And guess who that mystery stock buyer turns out to be .
I like that they have not killed him outright.. but from what i have read, his last air date is the 12th Feb right? So that means he could still POP up outa that ice.. but i must say i LOVE the idea of SOME ONE ( ANY ONE, hell even esther) BUYING UP NEWMAN STOCK FASTER than he can blink.......freaking him out.,......

Thought last day is the 5th. Whatever just hope and pray they don't kill him off.
well.. that would make it close to a friday cliffhanger.. pardon the pun.....Cant wait to see what happens, but cant say that i am all the more excited about any of it now a days.. the acting is gettng bad, the directions trruly sucks, and the pace, well, some things are too drawn out and BOOOORING( neil, lily, tyra, devon, ana, karen) eden, noah,
LOL;LOL;LOL that's for the "even Esther" comment
NOW that esther HAS this money why COULDNT she buy up newman stock? HELL, isnt SHE about the only non relative in GENOA city vistor HASNT slept with? hmmmmmmm.. the plot thickens........Esther buys up controlling interest of NEWman, so VICTOR sleeps his was to the top.......
when Brad dies, what happens to his seat on the board?
Hmmm interesting question.. in the real world, i think it would go back to the board for approval, but if he has a "vested" ( financial/monetary) interest ( and not simply for status, which some do) then I am sure it would go to his estate, which, since he and Ash divorced, would be COLLEEN AND DRABBY.....Colleen could help esther secretly buy up stocks, and take over control....... wink wink
Someone would have to help Esther...LOL
Or better yet. Colleen can sell stocks to her Uncle Jack since she is going to be upset with Victor after she finds out what he was doing to Brad. then Jack can partner with Phylis and go after the Newmans!
I like it.. I can see Vistor SCrambling NOW......
lets all just sit back, take a deep breath, morn our tragic loss, and see how things unfold from this point on.......
Does anyone know why brad was killed off? Is he on another show or is he retiring?
I think it is so unfair they got rid of Brad. I think he and Sharon would have made a great couple. I would rather they got rid of Abby than Brad. I think the new Abby can not act and acts like such a spoilt brat. I can't stand her! I sure hope they bring him back and make it look like the person in the ice was someone else. How do they know that was the spot that Nicholasfell in. Someone else might have fallen in earlier.
Amen. Abby is like somebad MTV reality show star/mean girls brat who is plastic and goofy!! I love the way Brad took old Phyllis to the mat with Nick before he hit the road!!! I loved the way they played all of the old Brad scenes I remember from my youth!! I loved Brad and Tracey together!!
I CANT believe NO ONE posted the "ICE SCENE" on youtube yet... THATS A Shock!
omg i spoke too soon. it IS there.. damn. and it is more chilling re-watching it, and freezing it ( pardon the play on words there) on his image beneath the ice.....
ok.. thats like the saddest thing.. pull it up on youtube ( look up "Y & R, Brad death" then when you get to the part where he is the only thing on screen, pause it there, then pull up another youtube ( for those that have "TABS" at the top) and play the theme music as you watch that in slow motion, or just stare at the guy beneath the ice.. WHAT A WAY TO GO OUT...... YOU GO BRAD...AKA DON DIAMONT........
Quote:Does anyone know why brad was killed off? Is he on another show or is he retiring? they said for budget cuts....
omg.. budget cuts? ok then um.. lets see 1) eden 2) noah 3) murph 4) clint 5) Abby... those five could save alooot of money.... add to that 6) karen 7) tyra 8) DEVON 99 ANA... hmmmmmm there is alot of moola saved getting rid of those bad acting non important persons
I am with you there Nym.
omg the possibilities of keeping him were endless, had they of seen the potential.. guess it was just EASIEr to kill a character than to TRY AND write for one....so.. NOW they plan to continue dragging out, and boring us with this eden/noah/abby crap, and the whole winters saga..... puhlease.....
That for sure it would have been nice if Brad and Victor battle over Abby, and later to find out Victor had the doctor change Victoria dna test and the baby is really Brads. Victor didn't want Brad to be connected to his family.
they need us to do their writing for a while.. the stories WE are creating, to help themsheesh!
I'll drink ~~HICCUP~~ to that...lol
For those who didn't read when it was first announced that Don Diamont would be dropped from the cast, the writers said that his character would go down as a hero, but would never be able to come back. Now we know the reason why. As for those people who said that they need to cut a few to have Don stay, it was Eileen Davidson switching back from B&B to Y&R. Do you really think that they pay some of those recurring players the same amount as Eileen, Get real. Besides, I like Murphy. It is nice to Katherine get a love interest. Keep Murphy.
ok ok ok keep murph. the old gal needs some too ya know.. JUST GET RID OF THE FRIGGEN BOOOORING KIDS ALREADY... AND TH WHOLE WINTERs CLAN......
Right on Nymphie. I'm still hoping for the Colleen inherits Brad seat on the board storyline though. If not the seat on the board, some kind of revenge....if not towards Victor than how about (even better) towards Sharon for leading Brad on,oh yea, I'm likin' that even more.
Quote:ok ok ok keep murph. the old gal needs some too ya know.. JUST GET RID OF THE FRIGGEN BOOOORING KIDS ALREADY... AND TH WHOLE WINTERs CLAN...... You are so on. this is the way to go.
so we are in agreement then? those opposed say "aye" ha ha ha.. Hell, give the Old gal lots of lovin'..... Let collen come out with gloves on against the whole newman clan..... its on!!!!!
