The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) on her way out at the CBS soap. Secrets are exploding and her past is coming back to haunt her. All of this seems out of the blue since Chelsea’s been on the right track for a while. However, maybe Chelsea’s just been an excellent con artist all along!
Regardless, things are heating up. It’s a shame Y&R waited until now to give Egan some juicy material. At least she’s getting a dramatic exit! In the latest issue of Soaps In Depth, Egan talked about this hot plot and offered hints about what’s ahead.
Naturally, the sudden shift in Chelsea’s character came up. Egan suggested that it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. “This is who Chelsea has been for most of her life,” Egan said. She added that “being a grifter is in Chelsea’s blood.”
Chelsea appeared to start fresh after she fell for Adam (Justin Hartley), but it didn’t stick. To be fair, Adam wasn’t the best influence. He orchestrated his fair share of schemes as well. Maybe that’s one reason why Chelsea and Adam made the perfect pair.
Chelsea tried her best to head down the right path, but it didn’t work out. Egan argued that maybe shifting gears too fast was the problem. “When she fell for Adam, she became good so quickly and changed her con-artist ways,” Egan said. “But maybe she changed TOO quickly?” Egan insisted this is who Chelsea is and she may be powerless to change it.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Chelsea’s ordeal will get far worse in the coming episodes. How does Egan feel about Chelsea’s chaos? “I’m excited,” Egan said. “Fans will be very surprised by Chelsea, but I think they will also be intrigued.”
Of course, there’s also the issue of Christian’s (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen) paternity. Chelsea will soon learn that someone else is in the loop. Egan’s thrilled that they’re bringing a mysterious element into this story. She noted that soaps always include the usual stuff like love and cheating, but it’s fun when questions start swirling. Egan gushed, “We’re adding mystery to Y&R again!”
