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.

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.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
