The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Phack appears positioned as a couple’s revival following the Kerry (Alice Hunter) reveal. The double betrayal that Miss Johnson and her to-be-revealed partner will offer serves to create a bonding opportunity for Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) and Jack (Peter Bergman).
Just weeks ago, Phyllis was with Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Jack was with Kerry. But the surprise announcement that Hunter’s character was being written out of the show, after the solid actor’s Y&R debut took place just last fall, split the second couple (Jerry), with Phick having been the first.
Y&R viewers know that Hunter is soon set to exit the show. The recent announcement of her departure, combined with soap opera’s advanced recording schedules being approximately six weeks in advance, means that Kerry will likely be ousted in April, at the latest.
Phyllis went stealth while recruiting Kerry as Jabot’s lead chemist. Miss Johnson followed Ashley (Eileen Davidson), who just might be Kerry’s partner, or the person who’s been using Jack’s perceived significant other as a mole in the family company.
Fans know that Davidson is set to return for a very brief stint. That news feels like a dovetail with Kerry’s coming ride out of GC.
Phyllis is currently reeling on two fronts, having just been kicked out of Nick’s home and life and in dealing with the fallout of the J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) verdict. She doesn’t appear to suspect Kerry of being disloyal, which is why Phyllis fed her information about how to block distribution of Ashley’s My Beauty products. Connect the digital dots of Kerry’s text and phone call to Miss Abbott in Paris, France?
Then there’s Jack, GC’s eternal hapless romantic. Hopeful fans may have come to believe that he’d finally found someone who was stable. Sadly, Kerry’s knowing betrayal will eliminate her from soul mate consideration.
Being alone, yet still feeling fondly for each other, Phyllis and Jack could succumb to old feelings. Having been married to her twice, many would say that Phyllis is the love of Jack’s life. While the same may not be true for Phyllis, there’s never been a doubt that she genuinely loves Jack and still cares for him deeply.
So, Phack once more? Married for two past stretches, the third edition of this duo could be written in a way that feels fresh. Maybe Phyllis and Jack should have never split in either past instance and will realize that another reconciliation is best.
