The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers for Wednesday, August 25, teases that we’ll see a Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) investigation curveball – and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) will snoop as Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) grow closer.
First, let’s talk about Mariah’s time in captivity and the help she’s got on the outside.
There’s a whole team working to find Mariah using various angles, but the latest one involves a new lead from Ben “Stitch” Rayburn (Sean Carrigan).
Ben offers up some info involving an older man at a convenience store on Tuesday – making him a hero in Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor’s (Melissa Ordway) eyes.
However, we’re not buying that Stitch is suddenly Mr. Helpful after there have been so many red flags in his behavior.
Stitch still seems suspicious at this point – and that could tie in with the investigation curveball that’s coming up on Wednesday, August 25.
There’ll be a twist in Mariah’s storyline, so maybe that’ll involve revealing her captor’s identity to viewers.
Will Y&R fans find out that Stitch is responsible for Mariah’s nightmare?
Regardless, Rey will run into another obstacle with the convenience store security footage. He won’t be able to get a good look at the guy due to a glitch.
We should note that there’s a man who fits Stitch’s description who’s been hanging around Crimson Lights, so he may get picked up and interrogated despite his innocence.
All of this could buy Stitch some time if he’s planning to ultimately grab Bowie and run.
Of course, the baby has to be born first – and Mariah will fear that’s going to happen ahead of schedule.
It’s too soon for Bowie to be entering the world, but Mariah will find herself frantic as contractions worsen.
Once Mariah realizes she’s in labor, she’ll uncover the camera in her room and plead for some help from her kidnapper. Next, Sally will put her spy skills to good use while Jack and Phyllis chat.
Sally will probably sense the potential for these old flames to reignite their passion and determine that it’s something to monitor.
Phyllis and Jack have indeed seemed a bit too close for comfort lately, so a cheating scandal is possible at some point.
That’s something Sally would no doubt use to her advantage despite Adam Newman’s (Mark Grossman) advice about rising above revenge.
Finally, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) will get into a heated argument, so that should be linked to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi).
Victor’s continued efforts to dig into Ashland’s past may trouble Nikki even further.
Nikki hates to see Victor take another step backward in his relationship with Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), which could certainly happen once Victoria gets updates on all this.
Nevertheless, there’s some older woman who was likely duped by Ashland once upon a time.
It’ll be interesting to see exactly what went down and how it might derail Victoria’s future with Ashland.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Ashland and Victoria’s romance is doomed, so stay tuned to watch this ticking timebomb blow up.
