Jill Foster Abbott (Jess Walton) has managed to resist Colin Atkinson’s (Tristan Rogers) charms for so long, but will her resistance wilt in the upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless? Will either of them ever be able to truly trust each other, knowing their history?
Colin has been telling Jill that she’s the one for him for a while now, but Jill’s still hesitant to believe it. When he catches her creating an online dating profile, he even tells her, “Why are you creating a OurTime.com dating profile? I’m all the man you’re ever going to need.”
Even then, Jill has reason for hesitating when it comes to Colin. In addition to being a con man, he’s infamous for being a ladies man and a scoundrel – not exactly prime boyfriend or husband material. There’s also the fact that Colin insists that he’s ready to forget about the fortune that may be theirs after concluding the investigation into Katherine’s music box. He claims that Jill is the only thing he requires to be happy, but he is a con man, after all. What if he’s just running a long con on Jill?
The soap’s head writer, Shelly Altman, reveals in an interview that Colin is telling the truth, but it may not necessarily be the ‘whole truth’. She explains that Jill desperately wants to believe Colin, but knowing his history, she’s wary of giving her heart to him and trusting him.
Shelly also adds, “Jill and Colin are worthy adversaries. They love each other and mistrust each other in equal parts. So neither one can fully surrender their heart to the other… for now.”
But regardless of their history and trust issues, there’s one thing that can’t be denied: Jill and Colin are both insanely attracted to each other, and they simply can’t get rid of the feelings they have. Even after turning Colin over to the authorities, Jill admitted that she still loved Colin. That shows you how strong their connection is, but if they do end up finding the music box fortune, who will be the first to betray the other? Will their connection be enough to overcome their desire for the money?
