Jack hasn’t been having much luck with love on The Young and the Restless lately. His most recent attempt in romance ended with the woman he’d taken away for a tropical getaway revealing that she had a different name — and a different accent — and that she was a spy planted by Ashley. Also, that big, mysterious syringe in her purse? That didn’t have anything to do with anything.
So Jack went back to the drawing board. He refocused on his work. He made up with Ashley and cheered Kyle (Michael Mealor) on at this wedding. He listened to Traci (Beth Maitland) justify their mother’s abandonment. And then he left town… along with the ghost of dear, old Dad.
And who should Jack (Peter Bergman) run into but his ex-wife, Sharon (Sharon Case)? They talked, they shared, they sipped tea. It was all very civilized.
Meanwhile, another one of Jack’s ex-wives, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), is on a scorched earth spree. Should he join her? Over 11,000 fans voted on whether Jack should opt for the angel or the devil on his shoulder… and which one is which:
YR Poll Results
It was close, but 51% of you went with Phyllis. She’s more fun. She’s more Jack’s speed. And, let’s be honest, she’s not the Phyllis who heated on Jack with Billy (Jason Thompson). But she is the one he fell in love with…
And a very close 49% went with Sharon. She is crazy, yes. But, unlike Phyllis, it’s in a socially acceptable way. The kind that comes with medication. She’s the safe, sweet choice for Jack. And he’s had enough excitement in his life. Sharon will keep him from falling off the pill wagon, and she’ll let him help raise Faith (Alyvia Alyn Lind).
It’s the family Jack always wanted. And the one Phyllis deprived him of with Summer (Hunter King). The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
