Y&R Shocker!

As we learned on Friday's episode of The Young and the Restless, actor Thom Bierdz is back. However, it is unknown as to what capacity he will be utilized. During Cane's flashback to a conversation he had with his "Uncle Langley" (Bierdz), he tells him that he is in, and that they practically begged him to take the job. So, now we know that Cane is in Genoa City under false pretenses, and he might not even be the real Philip Chancellor III who was switched at birth with who we all thought was Philip. Did the former Phillip survive his car accident and simply leave Genoa City to get away from it all? Is he now pulling Cane's strings to destroy the Chancellors?

I must say, the time line is awfully confusing. Cane's background is that he was adopted by a woman named Violet Montgomery, who died shortly after, and then was raised by Violet's brother, Langley Ashby who lives in Canberra, Australia. So, how could Langley be the former Phillip? Also, Cane's character is about 13 years younger than the former Phillip, so how could one be confused for the other? I know that soaps play fast and loose when it comes to the ages of characters, so the answer might just be as simple as that.

I guess we will have to see how this all plays out. And I, for one, can't wait to see what is in store for us!
