May Sweeps are upon us! And, that means all of our favorite TV shows will be dealing out a healthy dose of drama this month to boost ratings. The CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless is currently nursing several potentially huge storylines, and according to Y&R spoilers the fans can expect them all to come to a head during the month of May.
On the May 1st episode of The Young and the Restless Victor will warn Sharon that she will only hurt his son Nick in the end, because when her secret comes out it will “destroy” him. Sharon is completely unaware that she tampered with Summer’s paternity test results, and Nick won’t let her break up with him. So, Sharon will spend the majority of the month of May trying to trigger her memory (which she lost during electroshock therapy), and recollect what her big secret is.
There will also be a very messy love triangle developing during May Sweeps, and Soap Opera Digest teases that the fall out will be “explosive.” When Leslie betrayed Neil and married a stranger off the internet, he thought he would never love again, until he slept with Hilary. One romp with Hilary and now Neil doesn’t even remember Leslie’s name, and he is convinced that it’s true love. There’s only one problem, Devon is in love Hilary also, and his own daughter Lily can’t stand the sight of her. Now Hilary will have to choose between Devon and Neil, and in the meantime avoid getting attacked by Lily.
According to The Young and the Restless spoilers for the month of May, Chloe will continue to spiral downward and act more erratically and out of character. We know Elizabeth Hendrickson is leaving the soap opera and opted not to renew her contract, so general consensus among Y&R fans is it is only a matter of time until they ship her character off to mental hospital.
The Young and the Restless spoilers also tease that Ian Ward’s presence will grow increasingly obvious during the month of May, and it will become clear he has an agenda. Y&R fans can look forward to some intense scenes between Victor Newman and Ian, and we can also expect to learn more about his relationship with Tyler’s ex Mariah. Speaking of Mariah, Abby Newman will make it her mission to get the evil Cassie doppelganger out of her and her family’s life for good.
Chelsea is also in the process of planning Adam Newman’s Memorial Service, which will most likely air during the month of May. A lot of rumors are currently circulating the internet that the new Adam Newman may finally show his face, at his own memorial service, and it will finally be revealed what actor will be replacing fan favorite Michael Muhney.
So, Young and the Restless fans how excited are you for all of these May storylines? Do you think Sharon’s secret will finally be exposed? And, what kind of shenanigans do you think Ian Ward will pull? What actor do you hope to see fill Michael Muhney’s shoes as Adam Newman?

Comments from Y&R fans on Soap Opera Spy are coming in and here is a sampling:
Are you positive it’s not MM?
Darn! I really wish Victor would be the enforcer he could be.. I feel that if he was, Ian would play ostrich, and Victor’s spies would be on his case, not the other way around.. ….if he really,truly loved Niki, he would.. Cat and mouse is always a good soap theme.
Can’t wait to see the new Adam
Not interested at all in the new Adam they made a big mistake It has to be the producer [Jill Farren Phelps] of the show that as a big prob – doesn’t like to listen to her viewers
Again we see that Jill Farren Phelps and Michael Muhney are front and center in a discussion of Y&R. No doubt any soap that hires MM will be much the better for it.
