The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Scott (Daniel Hall) will be revealed as the father of Abby’s (Melissa Ordway) baby after Zack (Ryan Ashton) is ruled out. That news is obviously preferred, but won’t be initially embraced by either parent.
It’s been clear for many months that romantic chemistry exists between Scott and Abby. Both characters denied it, choosing instead to constantly snipe at each other as high schoolers would. However, the dangerous storage unit event lead to a change in their developing relationship.
Thinking that they might die, Scabby (yes, that’s this proposed couple’s nickname) actually comforted each other. Abby actually offered compassion to Scott after he began having flashbacks. Being held as a hostage still haunts him deeply.
Believing that they might not be able to escape led Scott and Abby to share a night of passion. They regretted doing so after waking up and then were able to escape thereafter. But reconvening with their loved ones at the Genoa City Police Department served to expose the awkwardness they created by their impulse actions.
Scott and Abby spoke about what happened at Crimson Lights. No one else was present when they did so, but viewers know that at some point Scabby’s actions will become known to one, or more characters.
Abby’s most recent significant other, Zack, is dead. Scott’s girlfriend, Sharon (Sharon Case), doesn’t know what happened with Abby yet.
Unlike the Sharon of old, it’s possible that she might be willing to overlook Scott’s actions if he tells her the truth soon. However, that seems unlikely as he and Abby decided not to speak about what happened between them.
Two interesting points lie in the near future. One will be a real life occurrence involving Ordway; Her baby is due within less than two months. The other involves how her character may be written from here.
As Y&R stalwarts recall, Mishael Morgan (Hilary) was written out of the show for awhile when she had her baby (Niam). Hilary was said to have suffered a coma and was often shown lying in bed, though it wasn’t actually Morgan during the period of her maternity leave.
Anything is possible if Y&R opts to temporarily recast Ordway when she has her baby. Various scenarios are also viable if Abby disappears for awhile instead. In either instance, a pregnancy mystery appears to have been telegraphed by having Abby co-mingle with Zack and Scott within a short amount of time. Thus a baby drama could easily be created now.
