The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that yes, J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) has been spotted alive! How in the h, e, double l can that possibly be true? There are various options, including one incredible scenario that’s uniquely plausible in this specific instance, if employed, based upon a real life fact.
Devoted Y&R viewers know that Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) the three-time killer offed J.T. in the spring. She, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), and Sharon (Sharon Case) heard loud voices coming from the second floor. The trio ran up, opened the door and saw a written-rabid J.T. going after Vickie (Amelia Heinle) like a dog.
Nikki, like any naturally instinctive parent, mother, or father, then defended Heinle’s character. Conk on the head, drop to the floor, rolled up in a carpet, carried to Chancellor Park, buried in a few-foot freshly dug grave, and dirt shoveled on top by J.T.’s jilted, then shocked fiance. Yes, Luckinbill’s devolved, one-dimensional character, who was a fully formed human being between 1999-2010, was no doubt dead.
Recent voice mail messages left for Vickie and sensitive Newman Enterprises’ documents that match J.T.’s period of employment as the company’s chief security officer being received were weird, but hardly proved that this man was undead. Even word from a returned Mackenzie (Kelly Kruger) about J.T.’s credit card being used across the country proved nothing, as any thief may have been using his stolen plastic money.
However, a digital video that shows someone who looks exactly like J.T. means something. But what are some of these possibilities? Regardless of how bizarre it may be, would be that J.T. somehow survived and escaped his grave.
A man who looks like J.T. could be gaslighting Vickie. Buzz about J.T.’s evil twin may prove true. That could mean the person who came to Genoa City in late 2017 was the twin. That would finally explain J.T.’s totally uncharacteristic behavior, or what seemed to be a badly written storyline.
Another theory is that this previously unknown twin is seeking revenge for his brother’s killing. A side option would have a doppelganger pulling the gaslight in search of a payday.
Savvy Y&R fans, which include all readers of this outstanding site, know that Luckinbill has a real life identical twin brother, Trent. That Hollywood producer had a brief acting career and actually appeared on Y&R in 2005, in an uncredited role (as an unnamed guy).
GC devotees know that Camryn Grimes played Cassie and is playing her identical sister, Mariah. They know that Peter Bergman plays Jack and played his horrid doppelganger, Marco. They recall that Daniel Goddard played his identical twin Caleb and is playing Cane. They are aware that Michelle Stafford played the original Phyllis and also played a face-changed Sheila.
Fans of the infinitely great Jeanne Cooper know that she played Y&R’s greatest-ever character, Katherine, but also played her look-a-like, Marge Cotroke. Plus, there have been other character resemblers on this show through the decades.
But it would be most soapy if Thad Luckinbill’s real life twin has been hired to play his dead, on-screen alter ego’s evil twin, or look-a-like. So, is Trent Luckinbill filling either role?
If not, maybe Thad has returned to the cast. Yes, he could simply be a revived J.T., the evil twin, or a doppelganger himself. CDL is a leading source for everything linked to The Young and the Restless. Check back regularly for Y&R spoilers and news!
