Could Y&R's debuting Jessica Collins new character be related to Sharon's rapist, Matt Clark?

Now this could be juicy, if the writing team of The Young and the Restless had the forethought when they came up with the character name for Jessica Collins new role debuting on July 27th on the hit CBS soap.  As many know, soap veteran Collins (most known for her role as Dinah Lee Mayberry on Loving) will be brought on to the Genoa City canvas to help keep Sharon Newman (played by Sharon Case)  out of jail, as her new attorney, Avery Bailey Clark.

According to CBS Soaps In Depth, Collins had only taped four episodes when she spoke with the outlet, (and remember she is on contract) so she did not have to many details on her new character.  However, the question arose since Avery has the last name of Clark, might she be related to Sharon’s former rapist Matt Clark, once played by Eddie Cibrian?

Collins answered, “That’s the first I’ve heard of that. I don’t know much Eddie and I look alike but that’s never stopped anything in daytime!”  

Can you imagine, if Avery was out for revenge for the Clark name and screwed with Sharon’s case? Or, was there to  help Sharon and wanted to take the case because she felt so awful about what Matt did to Sharon all those years ago? We are completely speculating here, but it sounds good, right?

Well, an Avery Bailey Clark/Matt Clark connection would make sense, since the July 4th “Sharon” episode featured the Matt Clark storyline. Was that a teaser for events to come?

More sorrow for Sharon? How much can a girl take? Isn’t 30 years in jail enough and a fake proposal???

I’d imagine she would be helping her because there isn’t more she can honestly do, Sharon’s already got a 30 year sentence as is….

I just wish the writers would give Sharon some common sense again…I am so sick of her trusting that child stealing Adam and pretending it never happened.

WHAT IS THE POSSIBILITY THAT SAM IS TUCKER’S LONG LOST SON?

I don’t beleive we are headed there if they are gearing up for a murder mystery with Diane they are going to have to get Sharon out of jail.

It sounds odd I know but I am leaning toward thinking she will end up having something to do with another character….? Remember Phyllis knows her. Could it have something to do with the rock and roll past Phyllis had? She and Danny R. I was thinking! Could Avery have something to do with Tucker M. and his long lost son? I know it is far fetched! but

Hey, could she possibly be Phyllis’s daughter I know that is a stretch since there is only about 7 yrs. difference in ages buts they do it all the time. B&B is the worst about doing that but she could have put her up for adoption had her at 16 or younger, because she was so hell bent on Daniel claiming Lucy! I am sure I am reaching we should find out in the next couple of days. I do like Avery! Anyone else think I am nuts or what?

Apparently she is Phyllis’ sister…hopefully she can tell Phyllis to get her hair out of her face, stop the ridiculous eye batting and nauseating smiles, the ever repeating of every sentence and the ridiculous wardrobe choices….maybe Avery will replace her compltely…we can only hope.

They eye-batting and “nauseating smiles” are all Stafford, but I doubt character “Phyllis” selects her own wardrobe, or her dialog.

The first thought that came to my mind about Avery’s double last name was, the “Bailey” came from Lee Bailey and “Clark” came from Marcia Clark — the two attorneys who figured so prominently in the O.J. Simpson trial — a perfect double name for a legal-eagle lawyer. Just sayin’.

I hope Avery has nothing to do with Matt Clark. If so, Y&R has lost a 38 yr loyal fan. Let’s wrap this Sharon situation up already!!!

I wish they would Billy and Victoria back together. Why cant they leave ONE couple alone? I was hoping Victoria would become pregnant as a result of sleeping with Billy a few months ago.

I don’t care who she’s related to — she ‘s the most gorgeous woman on the show!
