Young And The Restless (Y&R) spoilers for Friday, February 7 reveal a stand-alone episode focusing on Sharon Newman’s (Sharon Case) health struggles.
Viewers know Sharon was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Even though she’d found a lump in her breast, she was still in shock when her doctor told her the news. Her family has tried to rally around her, but Sharon has asked them to back off. She wants to deal with her reality herself for a little while, but she’s struggling.
And right on cue, Sharon will receive a ghostly visit from Cassie Newman (Camryn Grimes). Her daughter Cassie (who also happens to be Mariah’s twin) died in a car accident in 2005.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Cassie Tells Sharon Newman She’ll Never Be Alone
The episode will begin with Sharon in the kitchen, preparing advance meals, since she starts her chemotherapy the next day. Her boyfriend Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) is with her. She admits to him that she’s “terrified and scared.” He volunteers to stay the night and sleep on the couch and she heads upstairs to sleep.

Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) will show up when Sharon is upstairs sleeping. She’ll tell Rey she hopes Sharon is having sweet dreams. But unfortunately for Sharon, they’re anything but. Her first dream resembles more of a nightmare. She will find herself at Crimson Lights. Mariah is there and she tells her Rey has left and moved back to Miami. Suddenly Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) will appear and say: “Poor Sharon. Rey’s gone…no man wants to be with a woman who’s riddled with cancer.”
Then her daughter will tell her she’s leaving town to go on tour with Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) and Sharon begs her not to go. Phyllis snickers as a nurse brings in a chemotherapy unit. Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) is also there and he leaves with Phyllis. “I can’t go through this alone,” Sharon exclaims. But Cassie is there and she tells Sharon she won’t ever be alone.

In another dream, Sharon is at the Grand Phoenix, where Phyllis takes her to radiation therapy. Mariah and Rey are also there and Mariah has a mirror. Sharon looks into it and sees herself wearing a headscarf. “Mom, it’s time to go home. Please don’t be afraid,” Cassie will say. Sharon will wake up gasping. As she heads downstairs she will listen to Mariah and Rey talk about what a strong person she is.
Sharon will tell them both about her dreams and that Cassie was watching over her. Although she’s felt secluded since her diagnosis, she now knows she’s not alone – she has them. As Sharon, Mariah and Rey set the table, Nick and Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind) will arrive. They sit down to eat and Sharon will smile. Later, she’ll fall asleep upstairs with her daughters on either side of her, as Cassie looks on.
