The folks of The Young and the Restless (YR) always have sex on their minds – especially now that it’s summer and half of Newman Enterprise and Brash and Sassy business appears to take place by the pool, with big-shot executives in swimwear (right, Abby?).
But, suddenly everyone is equally obsessed with an alleged sex trafficking ring. Because nothing happens on a soap that doesn’t concern a major character (or, at least, it shouldn’t), obviously it’s going to eventually affect someone.
Right now it’s only Sharon (Sharon Case), Paul (Doug Davidson), Scott (Daniel Hall), and Christine (Lauralee Bell) involved.
They’re trying to figure out who’s a part of it. Over 7000 of you offered your suggestions.
What a Mess-A
One minute you’re singing for your supper, the next you’re… what? That’s what 67% of you would like to know.
Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) has been shifty since day one. She’s clearly on the run from someone. But is she a victim of the sex trafficking ring… or helping to run it?
The Past Is In the Past
Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Jordan (Darnell Kirkwood) sure are eager to keep whatever scams they pulled in the past… in the past. Why would that be, wonder 24% of the fans?
A photographer would be a useful thing to have if you’re trafficking in young girls. Customers like to see what they’re buying. Could Jordan have helped out with that?
A Three Way Tie
Three options tied for 3% of the vote, each. Some viewers think Victor (Eric Braeden) is involved. Because Victor feels obliged to be involved in everything. Besides, Victor once kept a man locked in his basement; he’s got prisoner experience.
Another share is leaning towards Cane (Daniel Goddard) because… he’s Australian, and thus descended from criminals?
Finally, Zach (Ryan Ashton) was the write-in favorite. Because he’s making a dating app. And dating leads to sex.
Plus, he doesn’t serve much of any other purpose. And Tessa has a past with him.
Look, Tessa again!
