Cassie Lookalike Identity Revealed on Tuesday's 'The Young and the Restless' (Spoiler Alert)

Two stories intersect on Tuesday's episode of 'The Young and the Restless' when the true identity of "Cassie" (Camryn Grimes) is revealed.


First, "Cassie" discusses her current situation with Ian Ward (Ray Wise), who mentions that she has managed to survive without her mother. Who is her mother? Later, Cassie leaves her room and runs into Tyler Michaelson (Redaric Williams), who recognizes her as his former fiancée, Mariah.

For months now, the unseen Mariah has been part of Tyler's story, mostly through text messages and a hotel room appearance while Tyler and Abby (Melissa Ordway) were visiting Los Angeles.

In two episodes, the "Cassie"/Mariah story has been connected to Ian Ward and now Tyler Michaelson. Are you surprised that "Cassie" is Mariah?


  1. I've seen some speculation about this but didn't think they'd actually make Cassie Mariah.

  2. I think this is a total revision. I don't believe the original concept was supposed to be the Cassie lookalike. I think TPTB changed in mid-stream and made an 11th hour decison to change the identity to fake Cassie.
    I'll keep my thoughts to myself about who I believe was originally meant to be Mariah :/

  3. Not surprised at all. They kind of telegraphed this back in mid-January, because at that point, we knew that Mariah had followed Tyler & Abby back to Genoa City from L.A. And we saw Mariah lock Abby in the empty loft apartment the exact same episode that Noah accidentally told Victor about Sharon seeing visions of Cassie. IOW, the two stories kind of collided in that episode as well.

    But honestly, I'm with a1scrivener and truly believe this is a storyboard revision from the new writing team. When Josh Griffith started the Mariah thing way back in May 2013, and then began to provide hints about Tyler and Mariah in Los Angeles, I kind of thought they were going to do a B&B crossover and have Mariah turn out to be one of Amber Moore's aliases.
