Dr. Neil Curtis, I've never read or heard much about what led to Stephanie Williams leaving the show.  At the time it was happening, I thought it was a pretty bad mistake to let her go.   My guess is that Bill Bell temporarily ran out of storyline ideas for her and released her from her contract.   She had a haphazard "going-away" storyline of some sort --- such as Amy's dad had a heart attack in San Diego (or something), and she had to go spend time with him.  (I'm a little bit vague on it at the moment.)  Then as someone said above, Amy began reappearing several months later in a recurring capacity (no contract).  Seems like Nathan Hastings found her working out in the gym and said, "Gosh, Amy, I didn't realize you were back in town," and she said, "Yes, I just got back", or something.   It seemed that Bell was about to start working Amy back into the storyline.  Then suddenly General Hospital gave Stephanie Williams a long-term contract to play the role of Simone Hardy, so any recurring work planned for her on Y&R quickly went out the window.  Soon after, Drucilla was introduced.  

Oh ok. I just always loved her as Amy and Simone Hardy. Never got into her Sheila Price character on OLTL

That's when Jack tells John he finally got Jabot back I think? 

So it must be an Abbott week.

yup.

 

Tues June 2, episode #6715, from Sept. 17, 1999

 

IMDB recap

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0849405/plotsummary

* IMDB says Victor walks in on Nikki and Brad, but that's a typo.
It should say *Victoria* walks in on Nikki and Brad.

 

In addition to what's in IMDB recap, soapcentral mentions these plotpoints: Nikki is annoyed that Victor won't reverse his vasectomy.  Also, meanwhile .... in a clinic or lab somewhere... the tech notes that some "samples" are about to expire, and the supervisor says to contact the owners and ask what they want to do with them.

 

The soapcentral recap page for week of Sept 13, 1999, has a display glitch because the top of the page displays it as "week of Dec 31, 1969".  But it has the right recaps.

Oh Sharon Farrell. Few actresses could believably freak the f*** out like she could. Flo was such a memorable character.


She did an amazing job and was fun to have around for a few years there. Unfortunately she became of victim of CBS/Columbia’s pressure to rid getting rid of older characters in the mid-90’s. 

As fas as Abbott week next week please CBS do not show anything from the Latham or MAB eras at all please!

I’m kind of annoyed because as I was watching my mom was laughing at how “OTT” Flos crying was...I still think she had the most believable reaction to losing a child!

Haha for goodness sake! :D  

My mom use to watch these shows, but she's totally erased her soap past from the last 20 years or so apparently....I know my mom and  she would have stopped watching  if she really thought the acting was bad or OTT, yet she watched for years...at least until 2000-2001.

Haha I’m lucky my mom still watches to this day, we also had a discussion during those Traci hospital scenes with Mamie on why does Abby comes off as being older than Colleen and Mariah 😁

 

Love that interview! I love that Corbett and Walton are still close friends in real life.

I was fearing the possibility of David Kimble returning would be brought up one of these days after all these reruns. I don't blame Corbett for championing it but [KatherineChancellor]Dear God in Heaven[/KatherineChancellor] please no. Just No. He's DEAD dead. Leave him be, it was perfect the way it is.

It would be for the best LOL.

 

The only interesting comeback story I had ever heard planned for Y&R was that Alden, SSM, and Smith had planned for Lisa Mansfield to resurface when Victor hired JT to do an extensive background check on Brad when he married Victoria but LML overruled them with the Nazi crap.

Having watched both Y&R and SFT from that era recently, I can’t decide who’s the more evil: Warren Carter or David Kimble? They were both incredibly psychotic human beings 🙃

I had already watched this episode in a playlist but it was fun to see it in HD. It was great seeing Victor and Jack co parenting and the Dacid fallout...but that ending seemed SO RUSHED with Nina, Cricket and Danny randomly reappearing alive at the end and I couldn't help but feel that Nina should have been the one to see David as he dies instead of Cricket.
