It wouldn’t be a good soap opera without a “Who’s Your Daddy” storyline, and CBS’s The Young and the Restless is no exception. Months ago it was revealed that Ian Ward was Dylan McAvoy’s biological father, and that Ian had held Nikki Newman hostage and raped her, and impregnated her. The horrific acts occurred when Nikki ran off with a cult and Paul came to rescue her.
Although the paternity of Dylan seemed pretty cut-and-dried, several Y&R fans predicted that Paul Williams might actually be Dylan’s father. The June 16th issue of CBS Soaps In Depth pretty much confirms that theory, and it looks like there will be a whole lot of drama coming to The Young and the Restless this Summer. The magazine goes on to say, “Ian continues to shake up Genoa City, which includes ‘turning the tables on Nikki.’ A shocking revelation will rock the foundations of two marriages – Paul and Christine’s and Victor and Nikki’s.”
Sure, the magazine doesn’t blatantly say Paul is the father of Nikki’s son Dylan, but it might as well have. What other secret could Ina possibly reveal that would affect both Paul and Christine and Nikki and Victor? Currently on The Young and the Restless, Dylan went to revisit Ian’s ex-wife and find out whatever secret it is he is harboring, armed with cash from Victor.
So, it will only be a matter of time before Dylan returns to Genoa City with the news that his biological father is actually Paul Williams. Ironically Paul and Christine just discussed having children of their won, so the fact that the already has a child with Nikki Newman is not going to settle well and could cause some serious issues within his marriage.
