It appeared as though ‘Stitch’ (Sean Carrigan) wasn’t going to make it a few weeks ago. But, ‘Ashley’ (Eileen Davidson) didn’t abandon him and then ‘Abby’ (Melissa Ordway) came to the rescue inside Newman’s towering inferno. Both fictional developments were written, in part, due to Carrigan’s well-earned two-year contract extension, which likely means that a vexing triangle will continue to be drawn on ‘The Young and the Restless’.
‘Victoria’ (Amelia Heinle) was the girlfriend before the girlfriend before the girlfriend. And, yes that last sentence was meant to be exhausting. After ‘Ben’ and ‘Vicky’ decided to call it quits, ‘Abby’ was next in line. Of course, ‘Abby’ initially hated the good doctor because she thought he killed his father, but that story just proved to be a cover for his mother ‘Maureen’ (Meredith Baxter). Exit the excellent former ‘Family Ties’ star stage left and Carrigan’s character’s story moved on.
Back in the day, meaning 2014, ‘Stitch’ had briefly been connected with ‘Ashley’. But, it seemed like workplace proximity and their combined emotions enabled that spark in retrospect. Yet, that didn’t prove to be the case for either party.
‘Ben’s’ near-death love confession to ‘Ashley’ initially appeared to be a sign of compassion. But, ‘Ashley’ later confirmed that the man she’s cared about all along feels the same in her regard.
Just when it seemed that ‘Abby’ was ready to settle down, at least for awhile, an unexpected storyline thread can be seen on her wedding dress. Faux marriage plans and a major clash with her mom are seen in YR’s winter forecast, as ‘Stitch’ sits atop the tenuous triangle.
