The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Jordan (Darnell Kirkwood) is working with Juliet (Laur Allen). Here’s the speculative gist: It will soon be revealed that Jordan and Juliet made an agreement to separate Lane after Juliet arrived in Genoa City.
Jordan has known Lily (Christel Khalil) for years. They first met when Lily was working as one of the Fresh Faces of Jabot, though the Jordan character wasn’t part of Y&R’s storyline back then.
Mr. Wilde has been increasingly available to Mrs. Ashby as Cane’s (Daniel Goddard) personal and career crisis has deepened. Interestingly, Jordan recently sought out Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) take on whether Juliet was pulling a scam.
Viewers were previously informed that Jordan and Chelsea knew each other in the past. Chelsea was a con woman when Jordan was a photog for hire. That implied he took compromising photos that were used to blackmail people, or was paid to take photos of women that were used in illicit markets.
Jordan appears to be feeling Chelsea out to see if the mutual goal he and Juliet are working toward has any detectable holes. Jordan is betting that Lily will never learn that he chose to undermine her husband. His intention is to become Cane’s replacement when ‘Lane’s’ marriage ends.
It’s not that Jordan necessarily was involved with Juliet’s scheme (if there was one) from the beginning. And this feature isn’t about whatever Miss Helton’s angle has been, either since Tokyo, or since she filed a sexual harassment complaint against Brash and Sassy.
Ironically, Hilary (Mishael Morgan) has been used as a decoy by Jordan during the past few months as well. Everyone thought that he was interested in pursuing her romantically when he’s actually positioned Hilary as the object of his affection. Jordan’s intent is to distract Genoa City from his main interest in Lily.
This entire arc just took a major turn now that Juliet provided medical test evidence to Lily and Cane that she’s pregnant. Cane had to admit to Lily that he’s been with Juliet in his Tokyo hotel room, which countered his adamant stance that nothing happened between them.
Savvy viewers surely know that the leap from Juliet being with baby to her connecting with Cane is rather significant. However, Lily’s defense of her husband to-date has been based on her belief that he was innocent.
How long can Mrs. Ashby stand by her man? And has Jordan’s plan worked because he’s surely the one Lily will turn to for support now. CDL is a leading source for everything linked to The Young and the Restless. Check back regularly for Y&R spoilers and news!
