On "The Young and the Restless," Victor Newman threw Diane out of the house, took her back for just a few hours, and then dumped her again. Most of us thought she would take one of those virtual trips that stars take now and then to somewhere else, putting in a guest appearance on occasion. We listened in on Adam's plot to stage her murder and pin it on Victor. The very real appearance of Diane self-destructing on camera was frightening because those closest to her did not care enough to notice it or act on it.
Now it is too late to do anything about that situation: Diane is dead and gone. Her young child has been to the river to see where his mother died. She left behind disillusioned, angry friends and family members. Following are some of my ideas about how this might be resolved within autumn scenarios that affect those in Diane's circle on "The Young and the Restless".
Adam's intricate schemes to get back at Victor for being more successful, knowledgeable and respected than him bear fruit. Adam falls asleep and his warped, tortured mind develops a scenario where Diane actually dies, who it affects, and how the death will destroy Victor and profit Adam.
Phyllis and Her Dream
There is no love lost between Phyllis and Diane, and Diane recently went out of her way to be particularly vicious in her dealings with Phyllis, who is actually afraid of Diane and what she believes Diane has the power to do. Phyllis goes into a deep sleep and gleefully sees Diane trapped in her own web: a staged murder gone wrong. As the repercussions unfold in her dream, more and more Genoa City residents get involved as Phyllis mentally pays everyone back for the trouble they have caused her in real life.
Diane's Psychotic Nap
Losing contact with reality is a frightening experience and Diane is not even aware she is losing it. Day after day, she encounters those whom she believes are out to get her. The actions she takes are not sufficient to give her the peace of mind needed to grant her peace. As her body shuts down to gain some rest, her mind continues to race. Carrying on with the cruel things she has done lately, she envisions the people who will have to tell many secrets to avoid prosecution for the murder of Diane Newman.
