The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Chance Chancellor (last played by Donny Boaz) will likely go missing on his dangerous mission – leading Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) to fear the worst. Will this set up the return of a Chance recast just in time for the baby’s birth?
This summer will bring some growing concerns for Abby as well as Nina Webster (Tricia Cast). Since Nina is normally the one calming Abby down and offering reassurance, it’s a big deal that she’ll be worried, too.
Abby and Nina will battle some serious fears over Chance’s location, so that makes it sound like he’ll cut off contact and leave them in the dark for far too long. Chance has found ways to call and send packages up to now, so it’ll be disturbing if he no longer gets in touch at all.
Nina and Abby may find themselves wondering if something terrible has happened to Chance on his assignment. They might assume Chance is being held hostage or worse! Abby could be especially concerned over the idea of Chance being presumed dead.
However, Nina may think it’s best to avoid panicking until they know more. She’ll be eager to track Chance down – and so will Abby.
They’ll go to the one person who can help, so look for Christine Williams (Lauralee Bell) to face questions about Chance’s mysterious mission and his current whereabouts.
Of course, Christine may be reluctant to dish out too much information. This mission is important or else Chance wouldn’t have taken the job!
Christine won’t want to put the assignment at risk, but she might agree to look into it and at least make sure Chance is OK. Perhaps Christine will be in a position to reveal whether Chance is just deep undercover or if he’s genuinely dropped off the map.
Unfortunately, it may be the latter from the sound of things. The Young and the Restless spoilers hint that some bad news may be headed Abby’s way, but that may just be to set up some far better news down the road.
Once Chance wiggles out of whatever tight spot he lands in, maybe he can return just before Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) gives birth.
There have been some hints about a Chance Chancellor recast being in the works – and it looks like he may debut on Y&R later this year.
The timing fits for missing Chance to be found and finally come home to see his son or daughter born. CDL’s your one-stop source for soap spoilers, news and updates, so drop by regularly.
