The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that there’s some controversy over whether one CBS soap star’s set to make a comeback or not. Let’s examine the evidence so you’ll know what’s up.
Soaps.com and other sites are reporting that Zach Tinker is returning to the role of Fenmore “Fen” Baldwin, but Soap Opera News shut down that idea on Twitter. It isn’t true according to their source.
So what’s the deal? Is Fen really coming back? Time will tell, but it’s worth noting that Tinker hasn’t spoken out about this despite being vocal about previous returns. It’s not usually some big secret when Fen comes home for a visit. Now that this news is spreading, it seems like Tinker would confirm it if he were returning.
As for the source of the confusion, that’s simple to pinpoint. Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin) posted a video on Twitter that featured the Baldwin-Fisher family. “PUTTING THE ‘FELON’ IN ‘FAMILY’!” LeBlanc said in a tweet that included, “#OCTOBER.”
LeBlanc tagged Tinker along with Judith Chapman (Gloria Fisher), Kate Linder (Esther Valentine), Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Mitchell) and Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Baldwin).
The video itself contained old photos of mask-less Tinker with his TV fam, but he wasn’t part of the slow-motion walk featuring mask-wearing Hendrickson, Chapman and Rikaart. There was also a shot of LeBlanc wearing a mask at the end.
In other words, part of the video was pre-shutdown and part of it was post-shutdown. The new part – hence the masks – did NOT have Tinker in it. However, it’s easy to see how this could lead to a bit of a misunderstanding.
LeBlanc is buddies with Tinker in real life and most likely just wanted to include him in a post about the Fisher-Baldwin family. It’d be kind of rude to leave Fen out of a post like that, right? Fen’s part of the family whether he’s in town or not.
LeBlanc probably just didn’t anticipate the confusion he’d create with his October hashtag – which was likely just about the rest of the gang. There’s no real evidence that Zach Tinker is returning as Fen, though we’ll give him a warm welcome back if it happens!
