Today marks the first day of the all-important February Sweeps ratings period, and “The Young and the Restless” went all out with not only dramatic scenes between besties Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), but also a gripping face-off between Billy (Billy Miller) and Adam (Michael Muhney) that led to both actors’ final appearance on the show!

Ever since it was first suspected that Adam may have been the one who killed Billy and Chloe’s daughter, Delia, via a hit and run accident, the tension and fan obsession with the story began snowballing. But when it was revealed that both Muhney and Miller were both leaving the soap (the former allegedly being let go due to sexual misconduct and the latter choosing to leave to pursue other projects), the excitement over the story hit an all-time explosive point. And it all culminated into weeks of gripping story leading up to today’s intense finale — the last time viewers will see either actor in Genoa City (at least for now).

More details will be revealed once David Tom assumes the role of Billy beginning Monday, February 3, but until then, what did you think of Miller and Muhney’s Billy/Adam showdown scenes? Was it a satisfying way to watch two powerhouse performers exit the canvas? Or would you have preferred the actors to have left Genoa City in a much different way? Let us know your thoughts below!
