The Young and the Restless’ Seth (Brian Gaskill) met his maker on the hit CBS show thanks to Jordan (Colleen Zenk) and her reign of terror.

Seth was only in Genoa City briefly, coming on the daytime drama as Nikki’s (Melody Thomas Scott) sponsor amid her latest alcohol battle.

However, Jordan didn’t take long to get her hooks into Seth, using him in her latest revenge plot against Nikki and the Newman family.

It was only a matter of time before Jordan didn’t need Seth anymore and did away with him.

That’s exactly what happened this week on Y&R when Jordan killed him after he revealed he was onto her game.

After Seth’s demise, Brian shared a message to The Young and the Restless fans.

Not sure why Seth left so soon. Why couldn’t he just of been injured or in a coma so he could tell police what happened?
Starting to like Seth’s character then poof he’s gone. I think writers messed up on thus one.
