For months, The Young and the Restless viewers have been following the story of Amanda Sinclair’s biological father, and who killed him. First, we thought it was her mother, Naya Benedict. For a hot minute, we hoped Victor Newman might be involved.
The Young and the Restless Polling
But, in the end, it turned out to be her biological grandfather, Sutton Ames (Jack Langdon). Now his trial is happening – off-screen. And Amanda (Mishael Morgan) testified against him – off-screen. But is this really the end of the mystery? What the fans told us:
Live and Let Live
Eh, he’s probably alive, the 41% of you have watched soaps before figured. Why are we talking so much about a man nobody on the canvas ever met, if the goal isn’t to bring him back to Genoa City eventually? And the reason we haven’t seen the trial is that something happened during it which would otherwise make this twist obvious. Right? Right? Otherwise, we would have wasted months on a storyline with no payoff. And what writer would do that to their loyal audience?
The Young and the Restless: Net Neutral
It doesn’t matter, 31% shrug, as Sutton won’t be found guilty, either way. What is the point of being rich and politically connected if you can’t pull the right strings to get out of one of these unpleasant jams? Sutton tried to warn Amanda that she was wasting her time. But you know young people today. They just don’t listen.
Y&R: Sometimes a Cigar Is Just a Cigar
The guy obviously did it, 28% insist. We knew it from the minute this alleged mystery kicked off, and now the jury will know it, too. How do we know? Because if the man were found innocent, Amanda would have to keep talking about it. And it’s clear the writers have lost interest in this story. The last thing they want is to continue it.
