The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Dina (Marla Adams) is headed for a major meltdown. Dina, of course, has Alzheimer’s, and while she has moments of clarity, she can also get easily disoriented and confused. Unfortunately, her terrible disease is going to get in the way of Jack’s (Peter Bergman) quest to discover the identity of his biological father.
Jack believes that Phillip Chancellor (Donnelly Rhodes) may be his biological father, thanks to an old photograph in a safe deposit box and Dina’s confirmation during a moment of clarity that Phillip is the one. But Jack needs more than Dina’s word; he needs proof! Jack wants to have Phillip’s body exhumed so he can have a DNA test conducted.
However, the judge put a stop to Jack’s plan and rejected his plea to have Phillip’s body exhumed. But Jack’s not stopping there. Jack really needs Dina to testify that Phillip is his father to change the judge’s mind, but everyone’s naturally resistant to put Dina under the stress of being questioned on the stand. She could easily fall apart in her fragile state.
Y&R spoilers say that Jack will concoct a plan to test Dina’s ability as a witness. He will stage a mock trial proceeding to judge how effective Dina would be at delivering the message that Phillip is Jack’s biological father. Unfortunately, Dina will devolve during the mock proceedings and break down, becoming agitated and confused…hardly a compelling witness.
That’s bad news for poor Dina, and bad news for Jack’s quest to get Phillip’s body exhumed. If Dina can’t survive a mock hearing, there’s no way she could survive the real thing. And that leaves Jack back at square one with no real way to persuade a judge to exhume Phillip’s body. How’s he going to get the truth about his biological father now?
Jack’s going to need another plan if he’s going to find out whether Phillip’s really his father. What will it be? Stick with the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates, and news.
