The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson) will feel he’s entitled to a piece of the pie when it comes to Dina Mergeron’s (Marla Adams) money. In fact, Theo will want to take the whole pie for himself!
Y&R fans know Theo actually shared some nice moments with Dina in the months before her death. Theo claimed to feel a real connection with Dina and appreciated how Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) let him visit his grandmother.
That’s part of why Theo was so enraged when he found out he was left out of Dina’s final goodbye. Theo would’ve liked to have been present for that – or at least offered the opportunity to participate. Instead, Theo had to find out Dina was dead through an accidental run-in with Kyle.
The Abbotts couldn’t even call to fill him in, so Theo’s feeling snubbed and furious right now. Of course, Jack didn’t invite Theo over for part two that goodbye either. Lauren Baldwin (Tracey E. Bregman) worked out a deal with Jack, so she kept the main “teardrop of love” stone.
Jack separated the rest of the necklace into individual jewelry pieces for the rest of his family.
It’s possible Jack had something made for Theo, but Theo certainly wasn’t invited to the gathering where Jack presented the gifts. If Theo realizes he got nada, that’ll just be one more way for him to feel angry and left out.
Of course, we have to look at both sides of this situation. Theo is NOT an Abbott – plain and simple. Dina got pregnant by Stuart Brooks and gave the baby up for adoption.
Jack and his siblings didn’t even know Eric Vanderway (Jon Briddell) existed until last year – and Theo honestly hasn’t done much to prove he should be embraced by this family. Targeting Cousin Kyle isn’t the way to do that.
Some might argue that Theo is already expecting a bit more than he’s owed under the circumstances. Jack might’ve even been concerned about upsetting or confusing Dina with Theo’s presence before she died.
Dina battled a lot of guilt over giving Eric up – and that was on top of abandoning her Abbott kids.
Maybe it was best not to pile on something else for Dina to worry about in what needed to be her final peaceful moments. Jack also had a lot going on since he was trying to find the necklace up until the last second. Regardless, there’s no excuse that can justify what Theo’s about to do.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Theo will try to profit from his dear old granny. He knows the Abbotts are grieving right now, but he won’t care. Theo will decide that since the Abbotts couldn’t give him any consideration, he’ll just have to take it for himself.
Y&R viewers can expect some shocking updates for Jack, Kyle, Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) and Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).
They’ll learn Theo is suing for Dina’s whole estate. It’ll be interesting to see if Traci’s compassion holds out in the midst of all this – and if Ashley will still view Theo as a kindred non-blood Abbott spirit!
It sounds Theo could give every member of this family a reason to hate his guts. This is about more than money; it’s about Dina’s legacy. The Young and the Restless spoilers say Jack and Kyle will be especially furious over Theo’s news, so stay tuned for some hot family drama.
