The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Shick will become possible again after the Christian (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen) reveal plays out. By that time Sharon’s (Sharon Case) relationship with Scott (Daniel Hall) will be frayed, thus reopening the hope chest some fans have longed for.
As of now, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) are solid. But the audience knows Chick’s egg has been cracked from the outset. Adam (Justin Hartley) deduced that he was Christian’s father. Then, Sage (Kelly Sullivan) affirmed that paternity plot point in a letter she penned that was to be read if she died, which happened. Michael (Christian Le Blanc) gave Adam that eyes-only message when Sullivan’s character crossed to the other side.
Adam Newman shared the letter with Chelsea. Chadam agreed to keep Christian’s true biology from Nick so as not to increase his emotional burden. Morrow’s character was recently widowed at the time.
Victor (Eric Braeden) solved the paternity mystery on his own. He backed Chadam’s decision and urged Chelsea, after Adam’s death, to keep this information from Nick. That made Chelsea complicit in what Nick will believe was and is a moral crime. Conspiring with the enemy, Victor, will serve to deepen the feelings of betrayal Nick will generate for his existent soul mate.
The nasty war between Victor and Nick will force the Christian issue to the surface despite it’s ostensible peaceful conclusion. Victor doesn’t care about Nick’s feelings anymore despite the surface reconciliation. So he’ll time this revelation to inflict maximum pain on his surviving son.
As Chick moves toward its final act, the ice under Shott has begun to crack. Scott’s investigation into the sex ring will produce results. Zack (Ryan Ashton) will eventually be exposed as fronting Design Date for his trafficking operation.
Abby (Melissa Ordway) will be rescued from her life-threatening relationship due, at least in part if not in whole, to Scott’s efforts. The arc’s climax, along with existing chemistry between the two will lead to a romantic bond, which all savvy viewers have seen growing in recent Y&R episodes
Scott and Sharon have been together for less than a year, due to Dylan’s (Steve Burton) entrance into Witness Protection (and return to General Hospital!). While they don’t have a long history, this couple has been portrayed as being sound. Scott has been honest with Sharon to-date. So it’s possible that he’ll break up with Sharon. If not, then the following is likely.
Sharon’s realization that Scott has become involved with Abby will bust Shott. With Nick also reeling, old feelings will be revisited. Whether that development results in a full-blown Shick reunion is why the audience tunes in and records Y&R repeatedly.
