The Young and the Restless spoilers raw breakdown for Monday, June 21, 2020, takes a look back on Beth Maitland’s award-winning performance as a suicidal Traci. It’s a rewind to June 27, 1984, when the youngest Abbott sibling (at the time) tries to end her life.
The Young and the Restless Spoilers Highlights
Danny’s (Michael Damion) riding high. He has a good time with his young fan, Cricket (Lauralee Bell) before getting the call his video is ready. He rushes to the studio to be with Lauren (Tracey Bregman) to check out their creation and kick off a new chapter in his career. His joy will not last long.
Traci Tries To End It All
Back at his apartment, Traci (Beth Maitland) is doing the unthinkable. The young, pregnant, mixed up mama-to-be turns on the gas, sits in a chair, and breathes deep, hoping to end her life.
It’s by sheer luck Danny left his notes at home and sent Cricket to retrieve them. She opens the door, smells the gas, and sets out to save Traci. She smashes windows, searches for a pulse, and calls Danny for help.
Danny Proposes A Shocking Solution
Poor Danny frantically rushes to the scene. He violently shakes Traci hoping to wake her up. Luckily, she does come around, however, she’s not happy to open her eyes. Her life is a mess and she’s quite distraught. How can she tell Tim or her family about the baby? How can she go on like this? Danny has a solution to her problem, and it’s a jaw-dropper!
Speaking of Tim (Scott Palmer), he’s at the club bugging Amy (Stephanie E. Williams) about Traci. Where is she? Is she okay? Has anyone heard from her? Oh, if he only knew.
Gina And Lauren Face Off
Back at the studio (and unaware of the drama), Lauren and Gina cause a scene of their own. Lauren wants a first look at the footage but Gina stands her ground. This his her brother’s masterpiece and he deserves to be there, too. They have some choice words to sling at each other.
