The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Jack’s (Peter Bergman) longtime enemy and a new, motivated nemesis are both reeling. Meanwhile Mr. Abbott-Chancellor (JAC) is smilin’.
Names are hyphenated for varying reasons. In some instances people appear to be making an internal political statement in sporting an extended moniker. Various individuals are honoring both sides of their adoptive families, others believe that they are showing the world independence by linking the last names of their male father (or, occasionally, other parent) and chosen spouse. Neither description defines what JAC is now doing.
Acronyms, when shown in proper grammatical form, will first lay out what each capitalized letter means and then follow with the plucked upper case letters. All further use of said acronym has then been explained, thus shortening a writer’s use of letters and playing to all reader’s smart senses.
JAC truly believes that Phillip Chancellor (Donnelly Rhodes) is his biological father. What is Jack’s evidence? Two DNA tests that didn’t match as were expected, a 1950’s black and white photo that was kept in a lock box, and Dina’s (Marla Adams) verbal confirmation that this classic Y&R character, who died in the mid-1970’s, is his real father.
As Jack wishes upon his next rich star, Victor (Eric Braden) is reeling because he thinks J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) is attempting to bring him and his company down. But what does that have to do with the gist of this article, scribe, as some might be asking themselves?
Well, readers of varying last name forms, Jack moves in for the kill whenever he knows Victor is off. JAC may not be the man who’s anonymously attacking Newman Enterprises and he may also be currently unemployed. But Mr. Abbott-hoped-for-Chancellor needs only one opening to attack Victor, or maybe that’s his son, Kyle (Michael Mealor), who’s dealing dirty to atone for recently attacking JAC?
Separately, there’s Cane (Daniel Goddard). He’s rightfully scared out of his mind that Jack Abbot’s (as he still calls him) theory might prove right. If so, it won’t matter what a soon-to-return Jill (Jess Walton) does.
Katherine’s (played by the late, great Jeanne Cooper) decade’s old nemesis slept with Phillip long before Walton assumed the Jill role (and worked it to an outstanding degree). Mrs. Atkinson, more than anyone, doesn’t want to believe that Dina fooled around with Phillip years before he was with Jill in a similar, illicit capacity. Yes, Jill fears Jack’s theory the most.
JAC’s plan to call Dina as his star witness in an anticipated legal claim is cold, but likely worth the gamble. If Dina is clear in the projected courtroom, a judge will be far more inclined to grant an exhumation order.
Phillip’s body will be dug up, apparently a fragment of his bones will be scraped, and a third DNA test will be conducted. If that test fails, Jack may then be forced to recall John’s (Jerry Douglas) coffin. JAC may be restored to Jack Abbott at that point, but that’s a long way off in Genoa City.
