Camryn Grimes portrayed the live and departed versions of 'Cassie Newman' on 'The Young and the Restless' for many years. Even though her still-unnamed new character was told to leave town by the 'Dark Knight', it appears as though she has and will refuse to be intimidated.

This fine actor's acceptance of her freshly skewed role parallels her character's newfound attitude toward 'Cassie's' adopted grandfather. And with that, plenty of drama surely lies dead ahead.

Grimes full-time return to 'YR' was facilitated through a cleverly written happenstance with the one and only 'Victor Newman' (Eric Braeden) at 'Crimson Lights'. Ironic choice of setting for that meeting to take place, as diehard fans would know.

While 'Sharon' (Sharon Case) and 'Nick' (Joshua Morrow) grow closer by the day, one has to wonder how long their deceased daughter's doppelganger will remain unseen by anyone who counts in Genoa City? Clearly, this story arc is approaching some form of revelation.

Loyal viewers are happy to see Grimes on their HD screens. They're also surely wondering if the new woman she's playing is somehow related to 'Sharon's' long lost little girl.

Possibly, Grimes' new character is 'Cassie's' twin that 'Sharon' lost at birth, a la 'Adam's' (Michael Muhney) 'Faith Cassidy Newman' (currently, McKenna Grace) switch, or maybe, she's a remarkably similar cousin from somewhere in the tangled family tree? Anything is possible in this fictional world.

With wherever the storyline goes, kudos to whoever brought Grimes back into the daytime fold. The former child prodigy has matured into this complex adult role.
