The Young and the Restless (YR) viewers have been watching the Abbots for over 30 years. They knew that John wasn’t Ashley’s (Eileen Davidson) biological father, but the other two were believed to be his kids.
Nope! Turns out Dina (Marla Adams) was an even more horrible wife and mother than previously believed! Now she blabbed that John wasn’t Jack’s (Peter Bergman) father, either!
Except she can’t remember who actually is, and, anyway, she has dementia so no one can say anything mean to her, la la la!
So while Dina flutters around, and Jack completely unspools, how are the fans taking this shocking, out of nowhere revelation? Over 3,000 cast their votes!
This Is Ridiculous!
Not only is it shocking and out of the blue, 70% of you fume, but it doesn’t even make any sense! When she first arrived in Genoa City, Dina kept confusing Jack for John. Doesn’t that suggest they look a bit alike? The way fathers and sons tend to do?
Plus, why would Dina confess to Ashley’s paternity, but keep Jack’s close to the vest? (OK, Ashley’s bio dad, Brent, pressed the issue and forced her to do it, but Dina had plenty of occasions when she wanted to hurt John, and wouldn’t this have been an awesome way to do it?)
Yeah, you’ll admit it… you’re almost as bitter about the whole thing as Jack is!
It’s a soap, 29% counter, no one’s paternity is written in stone, and fans need to go with the flow or give up the genre. You’re excited to see where this story will go, as well as how Jack will ultimately handle it. You also want to know who spliced that video into Dina’s movie. This is fun!
