Y&R spoilers tease that a mystery woman returns to Jack Abbott’s life, and it looks like there could be danger looming on the horizon. We speculate that this woman from Jack’s past is none other than Marilyn “Mari Jo” Mason.
Y&R Spoilers Speculation
The character, portrayed by Pamela Bach in 1994 and taken over by Diana Barton in 1994 through 1996, is the former head of Jabot Cosmetics art department. During her tenure in Genoa City, Mari Jo was engaged to Jack (Peter Bergman).
However, Jack and Mari Jo’s engagement didn’t work out because he thought that Mari Jo was involved with his sister’s husband, Blade Bladeson (Michael Tylo). Of course, it was really Blade’s “evil twin” Rick Bladeson (also Michael Tylo), but that’s neither here nor there. Ultimately, Jack broke off his engagement to Mari Jo, and he pursued a reunion with Luan Volien. That’s when Mari Jo had a fling with Jack and Luan’s son, Keemo.
Of course, their affair didn’t last long because Mari Jo hired a hooker to impersonate her in Keemo’s bed…soapy right? Then, after Luan died, Mari Jo helped Jack get over the tragedy. Her affections became an obsession, though, and she ended up going overboard. Ultimately, Mari Jo ended up in a mental institution for shooting Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and kidnapping Christine Williams (Lauralee Bell).
We speculate that Y&R spoilers will soon reveal that Mari Jo is out of the mental institution and back meddling in Jack’s life. Perhaps she’s even his granddaughter Allie Ngyuen’s (Kelsey Wang) mother. That seems like a long shot, but stranger things have happened in Genoa City. If she’s not Allie’s mom, we still believe she’s the one who’s been texting Jack, ensuring he learns all about his long-lost son’s life.
