The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers for the week of October 23-27 tease some exciting moments are ahead. Tina Ivlev will pop back up as Natalia, a young woman who’s trapped in the sex ring. Natalia will get manhandled by Zack (Ryan Ashton) when he catches her at The Underground.
In other comings and goings news, Casey James Phillips will play a firefighter on November 3. That sounds like a big storyline clue. A startling blaze must be on the way! Of course, there’ll be other surprises as Mal Young’s material hits the air. Y&R’s new head writer, he is now the EP and Head Writer making Mal the Y&R Showrunner, will show us his vision starting October, 25.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Young promised several shockers right off the bat. He wants to pull off some twists that fans won’t see coming. Young also revealed that he plans to focus on core characters and bring forgotten players to the forefront. He specifically mentioned using Devon (Bryton James) and Neil (Kristoff St. John) a bit more.
That means we’ll see changes for the newbies. Some newer characters will fade to the background while others get cut entirely. Young just wants to make sure we still recognize Genoa City. People typically want to see the characters they already know and love.
We’ve got some Young and the Restless alum news to pass along as well. You may remember Jensen Buchanan as Judge Elise Moxley. She was involved in plenty of Newman courtroom drama. However, Buchanan recently faced courtroom drama of her own. She was involved in a drunk-driving incident back in May of 2016 and there were consequences.
Judgment day finally arrived for Buchanan. She was sentenced to one year in Santa Barbara County Jail and five years probation. Buchanan is also being treated for alcoholism, so let’s hope she’s getting her life back on track.
On a happier note, two Y&R stars’ moms will make appearances on the CBS soap. The Young and the Restless spoilers say Kate Linder’s (Esther) mother, Molly Wolbeck, will show up as a classy hotel patron. Suzanne Lloyd, mom of Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren), will arrive as another ritzy customer.
You can catch the mom-filled episode on October 26. We’ll give you updates as other details emerge. Stay tuned to Y&R and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news.
