AKA Gillespie - Deceased
- Kane Manera (September 20, 2006 – February 2007; June 2, 2008 to March 9,
Gillespie was nothing but trouble when he came to town in the fall of 2006.
He was a hit man who tried to kill Ava for Olivia; he succeeded in running down Tammy Winslow with his car.
Gillespie was linked to Daisy LeMay. It was unclear how they met at first, but
the two were nothing but trouble when they spent time together. They did
drugs, steal, and just caused trouble in general. Later, we learned
that they met when she was in boarding school and he had broken in.
Gillespie was nothing but bad news for all who came across
him. Gillespie left town after being extradited back to Australia, where he
was wanted for numerous crimes.
He later returned to town a the mysterious "G" and was revealed to be
Cyrus' brother, Grady. Grady was still trouble, but we learned more
details about him and his life, and why he was such a bad guy at times.
Grady blamed Cyrus for abandoning him. Cyrus hadn't wanted Grady to
turn out to be a thief like him, but he became even worse. Cyrus got into a
lot of trouble protecting his brother while he was in town. Grady was
not very bright, as it turned out. Later, it was revealed that they
were not blood relations.
Grady truly loved Daisy, and she helped to make him a better
person, but it didn't last. Grady felt bad about killing Tammy.
Alan had paid him to run down Jonathan, but he had hit Tammy instead. Daisy
was in the car with him. At his trial, she testified that he had been
distracted and did not intentionally hit Tammy, so he was found not guilty.
Although he got a job, things did not keep going well for Grady and
Daisy. Cyrus and Grady conspired with Dinah to kidnap Bill and Lizzie,
although they did get away. Later, Phillip Spaulding returned to town and
killed Grady by pushing him off a cliff. Everyone believe he left
town, including Daisy, who was heartbroken.
The writers tried to make Grady and Daisy a rebellious romantic young
couple, but they made Grady too despicable for viewers to ever warm to him
that way. Making him Cyrus' brother did not help make him more
