How will the viewers take the last days of Billy Miller and Michael Muhney

How will the viewers take the last days of Billy Miller and Michael Muhney.

Starting today the final days of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller are here and one wonders how their fans will take the storyline sending them off.

We know that Billy finds out the truth about Adam being the driver in Delia’s accident.

We know Billy is out for revenge, he has a gun and is very dangerous.

Adam has made his peace(a touching moment with Conner) and is ready to confess. Will Adam be able to explain before Billy explodes?

This story is very important to Michael Muhney fans, who felt he has been wrongfully fired and want to see Adam vindicated, if not Michael.

Billy Miller fans are watching his phenomenal performance and knowing he will be replaced in just days.

Both Michael and Billy are two of the best actors in soaps and the loss of them both is very hard on the fans and most probably for the soap also.

Y&R has lost Ms Jeanne Cooper, a great loss and also Michelle Stafford who are both missed daily. Now Michael and Billy, and Hartley Sawyer has been let go as Jack’s son Kyle. Many changes and with the new regime still making changes Y&R viewers have no idea what is next.

Goodbye Michael, Billy and Hartley. We hate to see you go!

Allison Sweeney has been a member of the DAYS cast since January 1993. After 21 years of loving many men, lying to all of them and blackmailing and killing some of them she will be leaving them all behind. “I decided that it’s going to be my last year with the show,” Sweeney said to a shocked he studio audience.

As the star of Days and The Biggest Loser she has not had enough time with her family and wants more time with them now.

“I’ve been on Days of our Lives since I was 16 years old and I have never had more than a two-week vacation in that whole time. I mean, it’s so awesome. I love Sami, I love Salem, I love my job, I love daytime, I love the fans, I love everything about it,” Sweeney added. “I’ve worked so much and my daughter just turned five and my son is nine and I just want to be with them and enjoy my last year”

“I’m going to be on DAYS all this year. We don’t have a specific time yet, but I’m going to be on all this year and we’ll see what happens,” Sweeney explained.

How would she like it to end?

“It would be awesome to have some kind of happy ending,” Sweeney offered, before noting that her character has also caused a lot of problems for other Salem residents. “She probably deserves some sort of very twisted, like Breaking Bad ending.”

DC: GH’s ratings have risen since your return. How does it feel knowing that you have energized the fanbase?
KM: I don’t give myself that credit. The only thing I can say is I’m happy for the show and if I was a part of that at all, I’m so grateful.
DC: Have you filmed your final episode for this go around?
KM: No. I’ve got a couple weeks left.
DC: Is it going to be tough saying goodbye again?
KM: Of course! It always is. But it’s not goodbye. It’s just see you later.
DC: Can you give us a hint about how Robin will be leaving?

Yes, they will and with good reason. The fans constantly support Robin because she is a beloved character, but is it fair to keep coming back and messing up lives and then leaving. Maybe Robin should be recast. What do you think?
