The Young and the Restless spoilers (YR) reveal some shell-shocked Abbott siblings as Dina seems determined to get away from their “prison” while her mind slowly creates its own prison.
While all’s well that ends well with Christian’s kidnapping (don’t ask Chelsea and Nick if that’s the case just yet, though), the fact that Dina (Marla Adams) took the little boy is the wakeup call Jack (Peter Bergman) needs.
In fact, he finally admits to himself–as well as to Ashley (Eileen Davidson) and Traci (Beth Maitland)–that Dina needs more care than they can provide. She’s running out of lives with all the unwitting mishaps she’s gotten herself involved in recently.
This decision has been a long time coming, and clearly, it was rough for everybody in the Abbott family to finally admit that Dina’s health is declining rapidly. In fact, she doesn’t even always remember who is who or where she necessarily even is.
Her taking Christian and believing him to be “Little Jack” shows she’s regressing and that her mind is firmly in the past.
When Jack and Ashley go to look at high end “spas” for their mother’s care, Graham returns and manages to force Traci completely out of the house with Dina’s complete agreement.
It seems while she can’t remember her own daughter, she certainly remembers her friend Graham (Max Shippee) who has been there for her, guiding her every step.
But, just how and where has Graham been guiding her?
By the looks of things, Graham could’ve put a stop to Dina taking Christian. Instead, he actually fed into her delusions that Christian was “Little Jack” and offered to help Dina KEEP him instead of get him back to where he belongs (does he truly belong with Nick, though?).
It seems Graham is scheming to get his meal ticket and revenge wrestled away from her children by proving them incompetent to care for her.
Distraught, Traci calls Jack, and he and Ashley immediately rush home to rectify the situation just as Graham is trying to whisk Dina away. The schemer asserts that the law is on his side, but Jack doesn’t see it that way.
In fact, Jack snaps and punches Graham in an effort to keep his ailing mother out of the man’s sinister clutches. Will her family’s love and care be enough to keep Dina away from Graham and his ulterior motives?
