The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Jack (Peter Bergman) will marry Gloria (Judith Chapman). This wild ruse won’t be accepted by anyone in the Abbott, Baldwin and Fisher families, or by any common sense soul in the rest of the civilized world. However, Gack, or Glack if one prefers, will carry their ruse for awhile in an attempt to throw off disbelievers.
Jack is incensed that Lauren (Tracey Bregman) outwitted him. A master move saw Eric Forrester (John McCook) fly in from California in order to help his friend and former romantic interest head fake Jackie-boy. Lauren’s ploy caused the Jabot CEO to accept less than majority control in Fenmore’s and increase his bid price by 25 percent.
Gloria was acting according to her personality type since returning to Genoa City in December. The apparently former Mrs. Jeffrey Bardwell (Ted Shackelford) was dancing like her normal duplicitous self across many delicious scenes. As soon as she learned that Lauren’s family company was in serious financial jeopardy, Jack was informed.
Glo believed that Jabot was the best possible landing spot for Fenmore’s. So she sabotaged two separate silent partner prospects, which Lauren later discovered. However, Gloria knew nothing about the part Eric was to play in foiling Jack’s hostile takeover plans.
What started as a quick cover in front of Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) will turn into a full blown marriage ceremony. Yes, the bluffed line Jack spit at his ex-wife inside the Genoa City Athletic Club lobby, about he and Gloria being together, will be presented as a legitimate union.
The entire soapy world knows that Jack never could and still can’t stand Gloria. He believed that she never loved his father (John, Jerry Douglas), was only interested in his money and intended to destroy the family. Time revealed that Gloria did actually love John and that her feelings of contempt for Jack, due to his behavior, were real and have been sustained.
As with many people who clash, Jack and Gloria share some common traits. Both bend morality to get their own way. They are sometimes willing to do anything in order to reach what is considered a necessary objective. Gloria believes she was promised a prominent position inside the combined Abbott-Fenmore regime. Since Lauren maintained control over her portion of the company, Gloria will serve as Jack’s moll.
Viewers who are upended by this storyline can take comfort in one reassuring point. Due to the age of Chapman’s character, no potential baby story is on the way. Jack and Gloria wouldn’t try to fake that as well, would they? CDL is a leading source for everything linked to The Young and the Restless. Check back regularly for Y&R spoilers and news!
