When this incarnation of Kyle Abbott returned to Genoa City, he had a chip on his shoulder about Jack Abbott. Y&R spoilers were filled with days on end of Kyle being so angry at his father that he even conspired with Victor Newman. That never made any sense, and we never got a reason for the hostility.
Y&R Spoilers Speculation
Something else that never made any sense was Kyle (Michael Mealor) going from being so in love with Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) that he was willing to give in to Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) blackmail to save Lola’s life, to rejecting Summer and marrying Lola, to deciding that he’d been in love with Summer from the get-go. Now we finally have an answer for all of Kyle’s about-face flip-flopping!
Always the Mother’s Fault
We know that Kyle mourned the death of his mother, Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters), and blamed Jack (Peter Bergman) for dumping him on his grandparents while he was growing up. But was that really enough of a reason to conspire with his professional enemy?
No, it was not. But you know what is a good enough reason? If Kyle always knew that his mother had faked her death. That Diane continued to raise him while he lived with his grandparents. And that Diane filled Kyle’s head with stories of how awful Jack was. That would explain wanting to bring him down.
Y&R Spoilers: Trust Issues
It would also explain why Kyle can’t make up his mind about which woman he really loves. How can he trust any woman, when he had a front-row seat to what his mother did to Jack. Just when Kyle starts to feel comfortable with a woman he’s convinced he loves, he remembers all the lies his mother told.
And he decides to cut her loose before she does the same to him. Under the circumstances, Summer should be very, very worried. Especially since Kyle is scheduled to come to Genoa City…without her.
