The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) will inevitably be too attached to Baby Bowie after this kidnapping nightmare. It looks like we’ll see Mariah struggle to give up Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor’s (Melissa Ordway) son, so let’s talk about what’s in store.
Mariah’s all set to go into labor during the week of August 23-27 and will ultimately give birth to Bowie. Of course, “Bowie” is just the temporary moniker Mariah’s been using since “kiddo” didn’t feel right anymore.
This isn’t Mariah’s child to name, so it’ll be up to Abby and Chance Chancellor (last played by Donny Boaz) to settle on what to call him – or at least Abby if Chance remains out of the picture.
Under the circumstances, it wouldn’t be surprising if Abby liked the sound of Bowie and just rolled with it.
After everything Mariah and Bowie have been through together, Abby might think the name should stick. However, that could make matters worse when it comes to Mariah’s unavoidable attachment issues.
Mariah has been trapped in that room for weeks with only unborn Bowie as company. She feels like she’d go crazy if it weren’t for Bowie, who’s giving her the motivation to keep hope alive.
Mariah has been talking to Bowie to avoid the silence and keep both of them calm as much as possible. She no doubt feels incredibly close to Bowie as a result – and that’s going to be a problem once it’s time to hand the baby over to Abby.
Before Mariah signed up for the surrogacy, Sharon Rosales (Sharon Case) warned her about the possibility of getting attached to the baby.
Y&R fans will recall that Mariah wasn’t really concerned – and it honestly may not have been an issue if it weren’t for this captivity crisis.
If Mariah had just had a normal pregnancy and went through all the typical surrogacy steps, it would’ve been far easier to part ways with Abby’s baby boy.
Unfortunately, the tail end of this pregnancy has been anything but normal. Mariah’s understandably feeling attached and will perhaps feel even further bonded to Bowie once he’s born.
There’ll be a few more twists and turns as this storyline winds down, but Mariah and Bowie will eventually make it home where they belong.
Giving up Bowie should be unbelievably hard for Mariah, so she might turn into the one who hovers and oversteps.
We could see Abby feel like her role as a mother is being threatened, so there may be some other issues to tackle.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Mariah’s time in captivity with Bowie will change everything, so stay tuned to see her post-pregnancy obstacles.
