Sean Carrigan Returns to The Young and the Restless

Photo: JPI

A ‘stitch’ in time saves nine … isn’t that how the saying goes? Coming up on The Young and the Restless, Dr. Ben “Stitch” Rayburn is returning to Genoa City when actor Sean Carrigan reprises his role … and will he be there to immediately help sort out the issues in ex-wife, Abby’s life (Melissa Ordway)?

According to TV Insider, Carrigan will be back on-screen on the CBS daytime drama series beginning with the Friday, June 25th episode.

“Stitch” left town back in 2017 to move to Iowa to practice medicine and help care for his son Max who was put in a long-term care facility following brain surgery.

Meanwhile in story now, Abby is awaiting the birth of her first child thanks to her surrogate, Mariah and sperm donor, Devon.

But what will happen when Stitch returns to town and learns Abby is married (although Chance is on a mission and away from Genoa City) and expecting her first child via surrogacy?  Might their romance ignite once again? Stay tuned.

So, glad to hear Sean Carrigan is returning to Y&R? How will this story with Abby play out? Comment below.

Ok, I am actually very happy to hear about this return of Stitch, and I had not even thought of this as a possibility. Maybe Avery will return too? Would love her to be Nick’s partner – I cannot stand Phyllis. And hopefully Stitch’s son Max is in a much better mental place and may shake up things with the Faith and Moses age group. It will be interesting to see if Connor is SORASED upon his return to GC but there have been FaceTime viewings of the young actor. And we haven’t seen Christian in years. Hoping YR does… Read more »

Y&R has become beyond junk.. There is not one story that is intriguing or interesting. There is some kind of rating manipulation to keep it #1 through the many decades– when there have been many soaps better than Y&R throughout the years, I assume.___________ Abby has turned into a childish dimwit -its stomach-turning. It is subpar stories that are empty of entertainment._________ And-__ Stitch will not change the downfall of whatever it is now. And-___ What has been done to the great awesome Adam is criminal. Adam is no longer exciting he’s become mundane. blah.____ And Adam was the only… Read more »

You tell it like it is, but I did like Stitch a lot, except what he put Abby through with that kid of his. He was such a little monster that by the time we found out what was wrong with him, we didn’t have much sympathy for him. So is Stitch the one who’s been lurking around I wonder, doesn’t seem his M.O.

Hi Violet 🙂
Stitch won’t be around long..
Isn’t he a short-term guest?
Anyways it will be a treat to have someone different on my screen,
Y&R, IMO, is circling the drain=BORING!
I watch out of habit and hope that something entertaining will happen.
Perhaps this time around the Writers will write Stitch differently..
Stitch put his child ahead of Abby-I give him a pat on the head for that..
Anyways- it will be interesting and something new to watch.
Hopefully something exciting.

I cannot stand this Adam. No chemistry at all with Chelsea. There was only one Adam and he will never be back based on his new status and fame in prime time.

@su000 Completely agree 100%! There has to some rating manipulation. The writing is horrific.

Seriously???? They dump the fabulous Abby-Chance relationship just to bring in some other guy from her past? Come on Y&R. What is the point?

I bet they want to have a little friction between Abby and Chance when he gets back,especially having a new one, so why not give him a little competition?

This is an interesting casting move. Looks like I’ll have to wait until Saturday to watch the episode as I do not have cable much less streaming to watch it on Friday (I’m gonna miss the Emmy’s as of now).

I think it would be better to bring Chance back. I’m so tired of this absentee story. Either break up Abby and Chance or bring him back.

Son of a STITCH! Horrible news. I hated the character. Poor Abby, she always gets the wrong guy! The ONLY way this would work is for Stitch to turn bad, manipulate and kidnap her and Chance come to the rescue!

Soaphound

Oh Timmm. I was already having a bad day and then this! Mr. BLAND returns. Why? The personality of a dial tone, with zero charisma. And what of his delightful son Max the Murderer? Will he be gracing our sorry screens also? Meanwhile — no Traci, Ashley, Kevin, Gloria, Paul, and minimal Lauren and Chloe. The show is a disaster right now.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Good call. Stitch comes back and we rarely see Tracy, Ashley, Paul, Gloria, ect. Maybe “Mad Max” comes back and thins the cast out for us? Goodbye Tessa, Devon, Moses, Sally, Rey and daddy! Paul would have plenty of crime scenes! But you know Chance is on the way. Stitch and Abby will find a way back in each others lives just in time for Chance to come out of a deep cover and have his heart broke!

Great strategy, Timmmy. But, if Chance were to return, I doubt it will be Donny.
I do agree with you—-inasmuch as I like Stitch, I would really hate it if “Mad Max” ( to use your moniker)—made an appearance—once bitten……
To be honest, what Y&R needs right about now is a little comedy amidst all the darkness—-doom and gloom has been on the menu for so long—-these people are like robots in a Sci-Fi movie. I suggest Stuart from MADtv as Chance. “Look what I can do”….Too old?

Timmm
Guest

I agree. GH always has some rib ticklers in its show! Billy kind of tries to be funny or smarmy? Chance has to be suave. They need someone like Jax from GH. Stuart from MADtv doesnt fit that description.

Sorry Anything Abby related is a ‘ no’ Why a decade later the ptb are still trying with this actress/ character in a major role is beyond me This latest story is by far the nail of the coffin The only way to make Nina and Mariah are the portrayers boring is to force them inti anything Abby related The only brief moment Abby was cute and intresting was with her real life husband Justin Gaston when subbed in as Chance. Even he and Tricia Cast were believable as mom and son. Abby is unbearable and should be a supporting… Read more »

Very, very interesting. Just one thing, though: Y&R…PLEASE DO NOT put Stitch with that GOD-AWFUL Victoria. One round (or whatever) of Stitch and Victoria was QUITE ENOUGH!!!!!

I don’t think you have to worry about them getting together. I think she and Ashland will be a couple and daddy will save his sorry butt. Victor can do just about anything that’s called of him, and I can’t understand why Summer hasn’t gone to him to help her from Tara’s and Sally’s threats.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Oh Violet, my thoughts exactly. And I had hoped Phyllis would get to the bottom of this mess and send Tara packing but instead the writers have her on “clueless” mode. Lauren, too. Hmmm, Summer gets a job offer out of the blue for a position she didn’t even apply for, which leaves the door open for slimy Sally to slide into a job she openly admits to coveting since she blew into town. HELLO?

Hi, Jay It has been so long—-glad to see you post—I guess all is well with you; covid and all!! I must say I liked Stitch ( much to the dismay and dislike of others). TPTB decided to black-mark him through his monster of a kid. NuChance never did it for me—-the “real” Chance should return ( hot, hot, hot) with his brother Ronan!! My question is, Why? Why is he back? What’s afoot? I am not getting this idiotic surrogacy at all either. I missed so many episodes, for one reason or another—didn’t catch up. Of all the sperm… Read more »

To make matters worse, Celia, Devon just barely got wind of Abby’s plan and sprints over to volunteer himself for the task! I can’t even imagine the ego of a man who thinks that highly of himself. Other than politicians, that is.

Celia
Guest

Oh, Soaphound—-these crazy kids. LOL.
Whose egg is it? Mariah’s?–how unfortunate!! Abby can’t get pregnant and Chance has loser-swimmers? —Or is he impotent?
I repeat–Poor, poor Abby.—this whole thing is so upside-down confusing—-It’s like giving one’s own child away—most convoluted storyline yet!!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Right? These remaining soaps are all screwed up–“Billy” is NOT Billy—Ciara (Days) is not Ciara—-so weird. Theo and his man-bun—-or should I say boy—-with cheeks you’d love to squeeze—so plump. And, John Black? He gives me the heebie-jeebies—hugging Belle and Claire—kissing Marlena the yucky way he does—-creepy!! It seems to me that his beloved Doc recoils in discomfort—or is it repulsion? Then, at the risk of everyone coming down on me—-I am so tired of bad grammar ( and, I do not mean typos or spelling mistakes)– I mean the honest-to-goodness ignorance of the rudiments of grammar rules.

I feel the whole story line is a bit crazy. Not sure why they got rid of the Chance character.

The actor portraying Chance was the issue, not the character of Chance. Donny did not abide by the Covid protocols that were established by CBS and Sony. He got Covid right before the Abby/Chance wedding was being filmed, thus Melissa’s real life husband stepping into the role, and then after that, Donny went back home to Texas for Thanksgiving, and did not wear masks, etc. while Covid was spiking all around the country with multiple new variants, so CBS/Sony had to make a fast change in the storyline, and get rid of Donny.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Completely such a stupid thing of Donny to do. Margherita—I wasn’t aware of this so-very important fact—-self-centered, selfish people should stop and think about others—-this world would be a better place in which to live if they did.
If my eighty-year-old grandmother can wear a mask ( which she hates to do), albeit vaccinated, so can Donny and his ilk.
Nonetheless, this partcular Chance did not do the character justice—-too bland, in my opinion.

Hi Celia — I knew nothing regarding this discussion re: COVID. I did find him interesting; not the usual soap leading man. Also, apparently, also not the leader in confronting this virus.

I like to separate the talent and the virus; not always easy to do.

I am just flabbergasted that Y and R cannot write good story for a young couple comprised of two legacy characters! Abby and Chance have chemistry to burn, they should be the lead couple on the show! They saddled them with infertility, and now feature endless scenes of Nina, Mariah, and Abby sitting around talking. These are Emmy winning and nominated actresses and they are being wasted! Bring Chance back and start writing some dynamic story for one of the best young couples the show has ever had! As a couple, they rope in all the greats! The Newman’s, the… Read more »

I have always liked Sean– I was really into Stitch and Abby together—I never really got any “Oh, yeah”-vibe between Abby and Lance.
Aside—contrary to popular soaps and Google translation, “ciao” does not mean, “see you later”—-in actuality, it means both “hello” and “bye-bye”—-

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Celia, I wish I could agree but he just rubs me the wrong way. But.. so did Chance so maybe Abby is my real issue. Either way, the story is D.O.A. for me and it looks like poor Mariah is destined for the gestational period of the elephant. And Victoria has gotten so hard and ruthless, like you-know-who. But at least Victor has some humorous asides like “I’ll be damned” or “You were nothing but a pole strippah and now I can’t stand you!” Lighten up, Vicki.

Celia
Guest

HaHaHa—You always bring a smile to my face, Soaphound. I did not like Victor for most of my teen years and beyond. But, now I get him. He has that twisted humor which needs to be grasped at the onset otherwise it’s lost. So, how long does an elephant gestate? Too funny!! Victoria is unrecognizable, agreed. As far as Stitch, I did like him—-now, he has to prove himself—if he stays long enough. Better than dealing with the last Chance ( pardon the pun) —could not stomach him. John Driscoll was the IT Chance for me—-doesn’t look as hot anymore.… Read more »

Looks like I am one among few that like this actor and the character. I did feel that he was a little more matured than Abby when they were married. She was younger and very spoiled which didn’t help their marriage.
On another note, I do believe Mariah is pregnant in real life and if I’am right, my bet is it’s a girl, it’s just the way she looks all around and not just in the front.

Guess Iam continuing this post from yesterday, but seeing Stitch looking in the window at Mariah, actually lurking gave me a funny feeling that he’s here to stay for a while and not on his way out of town as he said he was. Is he even interested in Abby or Mariah or is it the baby? Spooky!

Violet Lemm
Guest
Violet Lemm

Again, watching Thurs. show and Mariah has gone missing only leads me to what I surmised on my previous post. Stitch has kidnapped her because he wants the baby to make up for losing not only the one with Abby but the one wasting away in the mental hospital.

Wow! away for a bit. Did not see today nor yesterday’s work. It took me quite a while to find this site where I recognized names and comments. When I can review the program I have mixed feelings. Yesterday when I saw the expected Kiss between Victoria and I don’t even know his name, I thought, were I filming, I would have hoped that was not the better of all the shots. Tired of Adam and Chelsea, kind of thought Phylliss would know how to read what was going on with Kyle and his child’s mother. I do dislike Jack’s… Read more »

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”
