The growing tension between Phyllis and Diane reached a boiling point on The Young and the Restless. Their animosity has intensified since Diane’s return to Genoa City, culminating in a dramatic confrontation at the bicentennial celebration hosted by Nikki and Victor Newman.

The situation escalated, as reported by Soap Dirt, when Diane was seen choking Phyllis in front of Jack, Summer Newman and Kyle Abbott. However, what the witnesses failed to see was that Phyllis initiated the altercation by shoving Diane, who then fought back.

Therefore, when Phyllis broke down, everyone’s attention turned to Diane, who had previously expressed her desire for a world without her rival. But is Phyllis really about to die? Here’s what we know!

Will Phyllis die in The Young and the Restless?

Definitely not. Phyllis is not dead. Phyllis is a master manipulator, and this scheme was designed to force Diane out of town. And what better way to do that than to frame him for attempted murder, or even fake his own death?

The Young and the Restless Spoilers Ahead

Spoiler dirt revealed a leaked image from a memorial service scheduled to air on the show, with Phyllis’ photo displayed on an easel. The context of this future episode remains unclear, so it could either be a dream sequence or an actual fake death plot. We’ll have to keep watching to find out, but it seems unlikely that Michelle Stafford will step down from her role as Phyllis Summers anytime soon.

However, the same can’t be said for James Hyde, who plays Jeremy Stark in The Young and the Restless.
