The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Scott (Daniel Hall) is in trouble right now. But soap fans know he’ll eventually be cleared of murder charges and that Zack (Ryan Ashton) will somehow be held responsible his crimes. This scenario, along with factors that have been building in the plot for awhile, will eventually result in the baby that Abby (Melissa Ordway) will have through Mr. Stinnett being raised by Scott.
Y&R viewers know that Abby and Zack just cavorted with each other in the Tack House. Obviously, the assumed pregnancy can’t possibly be confirmed for awhile. So let’s review the two unexpected turn of events that led to Zabby’s sudden romantic gesture.
First, Zack changed his mind. Instead of leaving town after leaving a devastating breakup voice mail for Abby, he apologized in a heartfelt manner and then acknowledged that he loved her.
Ashton’s skill allowed a detestable character to seem genuinely vulnerable in those scenes. Zack’s childhood demons were projected, leaving the audience with questions about his backstory. The script Ashton was given allowed his character to move beyond one dimension.
Secondly, Abby agreed to bond with the man who she developed feelings for this summer. Instead of being jilted, she responded to Zack’s outreach. The fans knowledge of Abby’s painful relationship history was pressed onto the screen as that happened. While Ordway’s character believed a relationship had been, saved fans knew that Zack’s actions were putting Abby in a terrible position.
Y&R’s changing of the backstage guard resulted in Sally Sussman’s exit as co-executive producer and head writer earlier this year. Executive producer Mal Young then assumed full control of Sussman’s keyboard. He and his team of scribe’s episodes are now being shown.
Daytime drama devotees know that a writing staff change often results in multiple storyline climaxes and character exits. Ordway is an established regular. Hall joined the cast earlier this year, but appears to be secure.
Ashton is a secondary player. Combine that with his character’s nefarious actions as head of the sex ring and Zack’s time in Genoa City is likely to be ending.
Mal Young could easily play into the chemistry that’s been building between Abby and Scott. Current events will surely turn, forcing Zack’s reveal as a bad guy and Scott as the victim.
Y&R spoilers have been buzzing about a teen death as a consequence of the looming Underground fire but there is another possibility. Since Zack needs to be killed off and The Young and the Restless is having a deadly Halloween fire, we could see Zack as a victim of the tragedy.
Abby will be left alone and likely pregnant. Isn’t that the most plausible reason why she and Zack were shown sharing their love?
Scott recently comforted Abby when she expressed doubts about Zack. Her feelings will shift as soon as she learns that this supposed boyfriend framed Scott for his murderous actions. That’s not a hard projection to make.
It also isn’t a great leap to then state that Scabby will form. Yes, that is an icky nickname. But the mashed moniker implies where both characters appear to be headed.
