After the ball drops this week on The Young and the Restless, a pivotal player in the Cameron/Sharon/Nick storyline will drop dead.
"This person dies on the Friday episode, teases executive producer Jack Smith. "The story gets very powerful in January and February. It's very dramatic, with several twists and turns."
The murder plot will also involve a location shoot that "will be shot some time in January and air in February," reveals Smith.
