The third time Tara Locke mentioned a long-lost brother whom she is no longer in touch with in Y&R spoilers, viewers had to assume the guy was about to make an appearance in Genoa City. He didn’t. But, you know who did? Dr. Ben Rayburn, AKA Stitch, AKA Abby Chancellor’s (Melissa Ordway) ex-husband. That was quite a coincidence, wasn’t it, fans mused. Wonder if there’s a connection between the two?
Y&R Spoilers Spec: Fitness Plan
The speculation certainly makes sense. Stitch (Sean Carrigan) and Tara are close enough in age to be siblings. Tara (Elizabeth Leiner) said they grew up together but became estranged when their parents died, and also that their parents left them some money. Enough money to pay for medical school, we presume.
Young and the Restless: Contradiction Corner
There are no obvious contradictions in upcoming Y&R spoilers. We know very little about Stitch’s family. He certainly never said that his parents are still alive and that he doesn’t have a sister. We only know about Stitch’s ex-wife, and his mentally ill son, Max. We may know more about him than Tara does.
The Young and the Restless Spoilers Spec: Through the Cracks
Of course, in the real world, a savvy player like Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) would have never let a woman move into his house without doing at least a cursory background check on her. There, he couldn’t have missed the fact that her brother was once married to Jack’s niece.
But we can also fanwank that Jack was so enamored by the mop-topped moppet that Tara presented as Jack’s first grandson (though who knows, Keemo, the son Jack never mentions, could have fathered an entire brood by now), that he forgot all about traditional rich people precautions.
Y&R Spoilers Spec: The Twain Shall Meet
It would seem that a relationship between Stitch and Tara would serve no story point. Yet, if different speculation is correct and Stitch plans to make off with Abby’s baby, maybe that’s exactly when you need a rich sister’s help!
