The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Kyle (Michael Mealor) will take a break from his family’s current mess. He’ll put the Jabot mayhem on hold and take some time for himself. Kyle hasn’t been focused on his love life since he came to town. Now that he’s had a chance to settle in, Kyle needs to find someone special in Genoa City. He’ll definitely talk to a gal he’s interested on new Y&R episodes this week, May 21-25.
Y&R fans might be surprised by Kyle’s choice. It turns out Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) will be the one who catches his eye. Tessa’s a lovely girl, but she hasn’t been around much lately. She certainly hasn’t been in Kyle’s orbit, so it’s interesting that they’re being thrown together now.
However, there could be a deeper reason for this pairing. Kyle will ask Tessa out on a date, so it won’t be long until Mariah’s (Camryn Grimes) in the loop. She may even be there when Kyle makes his move. The Young and the Restless spoilers say Kyle won’t notice the lingering tension. He’ll be oblivious to the unresolved feelings between Tessa and Mariah, so that could spell trouble.
After Noah (Robert Adamson) found out about the kiss and ultimately left town, Y&R sort of left this story dangling. It’d be nice to have some resolution here. Whether Mariah and Tessa end up together or not, they can’t just pretend everything’s fine. It looks like Kyle will help them confront their issues.
Mariah will undoubtedly be jealous, especially if Tessa accepts Kyle’s offer. Of course, Tessa may wish Mariah was the one asking her instead. She betrayed Mariah by stealing her journal entries and turning them into lyrics, so that’s a big hurdle to get past. Nevertheless, Tessa and Mariah are in a decent place these days. They’re on good terms, even if their friendship’s not as strong as before.
Will Kyle destroy all that progress? There are a few ways to take this storyline. It’s possible it’ll kick off Mariah and Tessa’s romance, but you’d think the show would’ve done it by now if they were going to. Most viewers assume Y&R caved to pressure and shut down the same-sex relationship idea.
In that case, Kyle’s offer might lead to a heartfelt chat and a true end to “Teriah.” Mariah might make her peace with Tessa moving on. It’s also possible Mariah and Tessa will start fighting over Kyle. If they both fall for him, that could bring some interesting drama.
Regardless, The Young and the Restless spoilers say complicated feelings will have to be dealt with. We’ll give you updates as other Y&R news comes in. Stay tuned to the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates, and news.
