Who’s coming and who’s going from The Young and the Restless (YR)? Are any favorite performers from yesteryear returning to the daytime drama, this week, or in the near future?

The week of August 17, 2020
It’s time for another Abbott family flashback, this time featuring the younger versions of Dina Mergeron Abbott (Marla Adams) and John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).
Cathy Marks is back as Young Dina, while Jonathan Stoddard returns as Young John on Thursday, August 20. Both actors have been appearing in their respective roles since 2017. Does this have anything to do with the home movies Dina has been thinking about, hence her saying and writing down the name ‘Bixby’? Will secrets be revealed in these home movies or will they just be a walk down memory lane? Will we also see young Jack, Ashley, and Traci again?

Meanwhile, back to present day Abbotts who are much older and wiser now, Eileen Davidson has returned for another run as Jack (Peter Bergman) and Traci’s (Beth Maitland) sister, Ashley. She was seen on Friday and will be seen again over the next week. There’s no word as to how long she’ll be sticking around this time. Davidson seems to return so often that we barely miss Ashley. Wouldn’t it be nice if she returned for good and is given a good and juicy storyline?
