The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) could kidnap Bowie after deciding she can’t bear to give up Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor’s (Melissa Ordway) son. Will Mariah disappear on her own this time and take the baby as she flees?
In the past, Mariah was never really all that interested in being a mother. She had conversations with Hilary Curtis Hamilton (Mishael Morgan) and acted like maybe she wasn’t cut out for it.
However, Y&R fans know Mariah has evolved quite a bit since then. She’s had other discussions with Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) about perhaps starting a family of their own someday.
Of course, this ordeal Ben “Stitch” Rayburn (Sean Carrigan) put Mariah through was a game-changer as well.
Mariah fought hard to keep herself calm and do what was best for the baby, which she ultimately named Bowie. A bond has been established that’ll be awfully hard for Mariah to break.
Mariah intended to be more of a fun aunt, but she’s feeling very motherly toward Bowie at this point. That’s not going to change now that Bowie’s out in the world.
The more Abby bonds with the baby, the more upset Mariah will be. It’ll feel like Abby’s stealing that mommy role, even though it was always meant to be hers.
As we just saw with Stitch, pain and desperation can drive people to do terrible things.
Stitch isn’t a monster; he’s just a messed-up guy who made some horrible decisions in a dark moment.
Mariah might find herself on a similar path if she can’t get past the sorrow of this separation from Bowie.
Naturally, Mariah is always going to be part of this child’s life, but she can’t be a mom to him. That’s Abby’s job – and she may feel the need to remind Mariah if some overstepping happens.
Regardless, Mariah could easily start to lose it and take matters into her own hands. She may not be thinking clearly and could resort to kidnapping the baby at some point.
Will Mariah grab Bowie and bolt? That could leave Abby reliving the nightmare in a whole new way, so we’ll offer updates as other Y&R news emerges.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say some tough times are ahead for Mariah, so we’ll see how she copes.
