Why did they kill him off if he's gonna be making so many visits? Not that I mind. Though knowing MAB they would probably pair him up with Gen.

I wonder if this has to do with Ashley's departure.

Someone told me John was killed off because Sony and the actor were having contract disputes and they gave the order to kill him off. Then afterwards they straightened out their problems!

That's a shame. They shouldn't have killed him off but have John leave the canvas for awhile.

I'm totally in the minority here, but I'm kinda glad they went this route with John.

If he'd not died he'd have sat around on the background, probably been given the Gina treatment, or disapeared completely and later be told he was off with Maime. I love these ghostly visits, they're always powerhouse scenes.

I think the visits lost their impact some time back, in part because he always looks like an orange. It also feels cheap - the show has spent years tearing the Abbotts apart and having them badmouth each other, and having history rewritten against them. Then John is trotted out for some platitudes.

I love John Abbott, but I am glad, after they decided he died (which was dumn, in my opinion)....not to bring him back to life. I enjoy his little ghost visits. I wish I could have them from my Dad............. :)

My reaction to current Y&R ...

You can thank that slob Lynn Marie Latham for killing John off years ago. I will always despise her for that as well as Dru's death. And to think, I read rumours that her next "victim" on the chopping block was going to be Sharon! Hack.

They've revived lesser people than John, so they should undo his death, too. Yes, we all saw how it happened, but I'm willing to overlook that. It's unfortunate that the only elderly people in GC are hateful types like Victor and Kay.

Hmm, I wonder.
Colleen saw Brad again while she was drowning. One of the simultaneously saddest and beautiful scenes on this show.

Thank you for posting, I'll be sure to tune in to see him.
