Several people have been talking on the Y&R FB page that they heard little Delia is dying
and Connor will receive her eyes. I call BS, but they insist they have heard this on other blogs.
Have any of DC fans heard this?

It wouldn't surprise me to tell that story with the team in place at Y&R but I hope not.

I would just like to know

I would just like to know where the rumor started. I asked & one person said soap opera digest. I checked online, & saw nothing , so unless it's in print I'm not sold. But like you said Ryan Scott, with these writers, it wouldn't surprise me.

Kill off Delia -- NEVER!!

Time to turn off a 34-year viewing habit... if Delia Abbott is killed off. She is a bright light in a Show that is slowly going dark.

Hey Mon, that's what I say! I swear these people are reading very old issues of SOD. But they have been talking about this for weeks. If you are on FB, Join Young and The Restless Fan group, and read the comments. It's crazy!!

Yeah, if this happens, even with all my positivity, I don't think I will be able to watch anymore.

NOT that Delia is make it or break it with me. But if the story goes in that direction, it shows me that those who are in place at Y&R aren't capable of doing anything fresh and NEW...and it also shows that they are willing to sacrifice the integrity and FUTURE of the show for a cheap thrill. Too much darkness isn't good.

Delia Abbott is connected to a legacy family. BOTH of her parents, in some way/shape/form are legacy characters. For them to kill her would be ridiculous and I'm praying this isn't true.

I'm not buying this storyline either. It originated from fan fiction and no one can site the original source.

I cannot believe even THIS regime would ever do that. It's just sick, IMO.

And we have to take the fact that it's Facebook into account. That place is 100 % unreliable, and at times a scary place. That place is, sorry to say, infested with the most avid fanfic tellers, crazies, etc. The fact that Facebook has some pro-Dannifer comments, tells everything about the level they're at over there.

JFP better not kill off Delia!! Angry Lets hope this is pure rumor because if this happens CBS phone lines will light up...

I like Delia, she is by blood the grandchild of Jill Foster Abbott and the next bitch-ass "Jill" in a few years Shock I will be pissed if Jill Phuck-up Phelps does this!

The Cassie death was probably one of the best storylines ever on YR, IMO.

There would be no reason to kill off Delia, and it would not have the same impact.

Wouldn't make sense.

I'm gonna say I agree with pferrando that the Cassie death storyline was one of the best, actually it was the LAST Best storyline of Y&R. I still loved the breaking up of Shick and beginning of Phick. However, what happened AFTER that was just horrid.

Sidenote: Can eyes even be donated like that??? I had no idea.

But can eyes be donated to a baby? Their eye sockets are totally different sizes and doesn't a baby have to be a certain age before they can go under the knife?

Killing Delia off just to give a Newman good eyesight would be a totally sh*tty storyline. That's not even life threatening.

What good would come of it? The Cassie storyline gave years of good drama. Chloe and Billy are not even an item. I don't see the impact of her death. It would just ruin a legit future character of the show. Just like killing off Colleen was totally random and pointless.

Yeah I was wondering about that too. It doesn't make sense, and I don't think the writers would go there. It would be ridiculous.

And idk how long Y&R will be on air in the future, but I could totally see Delia growing up on our screens. It just seems "right". But I'm sure she'll be 16 next year, if they don't take the poor child's life before then

This is not going to happen. It really annoys me when people who have an anti-Y&R agenda start these ridiculous rumors.

It's one thing to have legitimate criticisms and concerns; it's another thing to just start making up nonsense.

Eyes aren't donated. They can't be transplanted because medicine has no way of connecting the optic nerve to restore vision yet. Corneas are donated and transplanted.

It would be a really stupid idea to kill off Delia so Connor doesn't go blind. Delia had leukemia. I don't think she would be a good candidate especially for an infant because of her leukemia. An infants' immune system isn't fully developed.

I, too, am tired of watching Abbotts get 'picked off' for the Newmans. The showrunners should be rebuilding the Abbotts not continuing the slaughter.

I'll probably get some hate posts over this, but I find Delia to actually be annoying. I'm ready for them to give us a new one.

Little Faith blows her out of the water. I wonder if they run lines together?

The Delia rumor is one I've

The Delia rumor is one I've been trying to find out where it came from. I've been seeing it a lot on twitter. Most seem to think Ashley coming how is connected to that. Then I guess there was some remote shoot that Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) and Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) were apart of. Also someone said that Christian LeBlanc said something on twitter about watching Greg Rikkart (Kevin Fisher), Liz Hendrickson (Chloe Fisher) and Billy Miller filming hospital scenes and that they were moving.

I'm not really sure. I just don't understand the point in killing off Delia. It makes no sense to me. I hope it's not true, but I don't know. I haven't really got an confirmation from anything I've seen but I am just hoping it's just internet rumors.

JFP killing little kids again!?

Hoping it's just a rumor but I wouldn't be surprised if JFP goes there. Under her watch little Jake Spencer got killed by his alcoholic grandfather for basically nothing. And with Altman coming to Y&R, maybe it's time to kill off some kids now... Sad

Still hope it turns out to be not true though. The Cassie storyline was a successful one but those are rare. And we saw Cassie grow up and her death has had a huge impact on the show. Some of the impact you still feel to this day. Even though I think part of her legacy has been destroyed by her recent ghost appearances and Sharon being totally crazy without any good reason.

Well, with tonight's news, I'm pretty sure it's happening.

Cynthia Watros is joining the show and will be interacting "with several characters during a very trying time." That's according to SOD. According to Entertainment Weekly and Soap Central, she "will have a profound influence on the lives of several characters, including Billy, Victoria, and Chloe."

Guys, I think we're in trouble.

I'll pass on this storyline. Dead children storylines are not something I care to watch.

Why do writers think that type of storyline is entertaining? What was the point of the cancer storyline? Total waste of airtime. Plus, if Delia's organs are going to a Newman, it screams a repeat of Victor and Colleen which was total BS, IMO. I just can't see this storyline playing out good. It will be a plot point and that's it.

That broad sure can kill the "innocence" of a show; I watched Frankie Frame's stalking and murder on Youtube and could definitely understand why the fans viewed it as the beginning of the show's end.

It's been my misfortune to

It's been my misfortune to witness every act of death and character devastation on the five soaps JFP EP-ed before Y&R. FOUR out of those five shows are no longer with us. If there is any one individual that can be held responsible for the end times of soaps we are now experiencing, it is that woman.

In short, I'm taking back what I said above about this storyline never happening. It just might. The woman loves killing off people with blood ties to other major characters.

Save Delia

To kill off Delia Abbott is to kill off that entire part of the Abbott bloodline that we enjoy watching.

Too bad that Dylan isnt Delia's long-lost father, or something, then she'd probably have a fighting chance.

I am not sitting through another 3 months of grief like I had to with Colleen, another total waste of a killing. Maybe Delia's eyes will be donated to Connor, or something like that.

Dyllan, You *know* why they

Dyllan,

You *know* why they didn't choose Johnny. Because he is of course needed for a much, much bigger storyline in the future. So that Chelsea can decide to want him back and get him. Of course, in order for this to happen they will have to ruin Victoria and make her an unfit mother, so that Chelsea can look better and have everyone's sympathies (as if). Johnny will become GH's Michael Corinthos, and Chelsea will be Carly, and Victoria will be any woman who's ever gone against Carly. Billy will be AJ, the man who will now lose one child, and then later on the other, and probably will revert back to gambling, drinking, etc, until he is violently killed off by smothering with a pillow. It's as plain as day.

I mean, they've already ruined Sharon, why not do the same for Victoria, Billy, etc. Clearly, as we've seen, they're capable of it.

Why do I feel that Billy is

Why do I feel that Billy is going to get blamed for Delia's death? I just have the feeling that Delia is going to be hit by a car running after that dog that Billy gave to her and she'll end up brain dead so her organs can be donated. I'm not at all happy about this.

If this does happen where Delia gets hit by a car or whatever I am so going to miss Katherine doing one of her God chats that would begin with "We've got a situation here..." Sniff.

Delia

I hope the writers remember that Delia' immune system is very compromised by the Leukemia & I believe she is on immune meds. This makes her an unsuitable candidate to be a donor, which in turn, would make it very hard for me to accept that story line. I positively hate when the decide to kill off a child's character, surely there is something better than this!

The only thing I know is that

The only thing I know is that a number of sites are chattering about this, and Friday's listing for Y&R on the DirecTV TV Guide channel says "A tragedy occurs" for the show's description.

It's being rumored that either Sharon or Adam are the driver of the car, that Delia chases after Dash, her dog from Billy, who has run into the street, is hit by a car, dies in the hospital, then Chloe and Billy offer to donate her organs after Jack talks to Billy about how he and Nikki donated their son's organs to help save lives and "live on" in other children.

Billy Miller's contract is up this month, so it's very possible that he may use this SL as an "out," and Michael Muhney has been tweeting that fans should be looking forward to some very amazing stories coming up. This would also be a reason for JFP to have Greg Rikaart and Elizabeth Hendrickson leave the show, as Chloe wouldn't really want to stick around Genoa City after her daughter dies, and Kevin would want to go with her. It would give them a reason for "leaving town."

We all know that JFP wants more and more storylines with Dylan's Steve Burton fixed firmly in them, thus his being Nikki's "long-lost son," having the biggest apartment set, the only iconic set other than Katherine's mansion left on the show from prior to Lynn Marie Latham taking over from Bill Bell, Sr., and he's been front-and-center in most storylines since coming on the show in January, and he's not been on for even a year yet! Since he's her pet star, vets and stars we have come to love on the show have fallen by the wayside to make room for the Dylan show, and why not now get rid of yet another Abbott child so that Dylan can play stepdaddy to Chelsea's son and become the newest "Newman" stepchild? Once he gets his foot into that door, there's no stopping JFP from making Burton the next Victor Newman, Jr....

So, it may be that this upcoming "tragedy" that will be seen on Thursday in Canada and on Friday here in the USA is the death of Cordelia Abbott, beloved daughter of Billy and granddaughter of Jill and John Abbott, niece of Jack, Traci and Ashley Abbott.

Oh, that's right! Ashley is coming home for a family gathering for three episodes! Wow, I think Delia IS gonna die...

I hope it isn't true about Delia dieing. But as a GH watcher also, I remember when JFP killed off Jake, a child, and it was awful. I'm sure she's looking for ratings and it will give the actors scenes for an Emmy nod. But, I hate anything that has to do with the death of a child. I like Steve Burton, watched him for years on GH but he became the "monster that ate the show" and now it seems the same on Y &R. Dylan is not Jason, sorry, the character is a dud but he IS Jill's favorite and I'm sure she will give him scenes so he'll get an Emmy nod, I can guarantee it!

They absolutely are donated. The day my father died a woman from the hospital called my house and specifically asked if my mom wanted to donate his eyes. Of course, my dad was a cancer patient so his organs were not viable but, the fact is they specifically asked for his eyes.
