The Young and the Restless: The Truth About Mariah Is Revealed!

If you have not watched today’s episode of The Young and the Restless, don’t read any further.  SPOILER ALERT!

Now, if you have checked out the action on the CBS soap you know that Nick (Joshua Morrow) has been on hot on the trail of getting answers and discovering just who Mariah (Camryn Grimes) truly is!  And on today’s episode, after confronting the doctor who delivered Cassie, Nick finally has the information that makes all the pieces of the puzzle fit.

Nick gets confirmation that the doctors delivery nurse was indeed Helen Copeland, the woman connected to Ian Ward (Ray Wise) who claimed to be Mariah’s mother, although she clearly wanted nothing to do with her.  Nick gets the former  physician, who quit his practice to become a teacher/professor so he could distance himself from his wrongdoing, to admit what happened many years ago when a 16-year-old down-on-her-luck Sharon Collins was under his care.  Sharon found herself pregnant and had no financial means to raise her baby, so she gave it up for adoption, but what Sharon didn’t know was there was a “miracle”.  She gave birth to twins!

Apparently, the doctor kept this little nugget a secret all these years, because back then he was in serious trouble from a huge gambling debt that he divulged to Helen.  And it seems Helen (and Ian Ward who was pulling all the strings?) paid the doctor handsomely and took the second baby which was Mariah!  Nick realizes Sharon never had an ultrasound, so she never knew she was carrying twins!

Courtesy/Pinterest

After getting the full admission from the doctor, Nick opens the office door and an FBI agent is there who recorded the whole thing.  They nailed the guy!  And now it was Nick who had to race back to Genoa City to tell Sharon the truth!  Only when Nick returned to Genoa City, Sharon was livid.  She told Nick she threw Mariah out, and that she never wants to see her again!

Now below, take a look at next week’s promo from CBS Daytime that has Mariah kidnapped by Ian Ward! And Sharon and Nick doing all they can to get her back!

So, did you think all along that Sharon had given birth to twins, and one was given away that she never knew existed?  Did you ever doubt that wasn’t the case?  What do you think of the storyline, and how the writers tied it together to make it plausible to continue to keep Camryn Grimes on the canvas as a key part of the series?  Weigh-in!

I thought the same thing. Maybe Sharon will have alternate personalities now? We saw this coming, of course. I just wish writers could move on and make lemonade from the decisions of others. This to me is sour. Lame mystery. Lazy way of bringing back the Nick-Sharon family. Would rather see more creative plots and less reliance on the soap tropes.

Really the Spoiler Alert wasn’t necessary I think everyone who watches knew Mariah would be Cassie’s twin months ago– the only mystery was what lame revision of history they would come up with to explain why Sharon wouldn’t know she had two babies.

As bad as the Y&R writers are they are F Scott Fitzgerald compared to the writers from GH.
For the record, predictability doesn’t always negate the quality of the story. Making Mariah Cassie’s twin was the only feasible route to take. How it all unfolds, whether it will deliver character driven storylines or not, is the true determining factor of a good quality story.

Anticlimactic but Josh Morrow knows how to make a trite scene work just because he’s in it. Too bad we had to sit through Austin complaining about his crappy life to a comatose woman all the while still looking psychotic…and Nu Billy joshing around with Chelsea’s kid who was just as less than impressed as we are with his dead wood portrayal…standing up there looking like Jeffrey went into a time machine to please Gloria..got stuck halfway through…and assumed Billy’s identity…I AM SOOOO OVER BURGESS JENKINS…YAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! Sorry keyboard…

Ha, yeah the guy who plays Austin seems cute enough but I’m just not getting in to his character or performance. I don’t know, maybe it’s the timing of his character or the writing of it. I think Burgess’s physicality in the role is more believable than the adult version played by DT, but I agree. So over it. Especially when you’ve got guys like Brandon Barash, Josh Kelly, & a long list of others with soap fans and no soap gig.

Someone here called this a ‘lame’ rewrite of Y&R history. Not with this particular story. Sharon didn’t know Nick, or any of the Newman family when she had given birth to Cassie, and now of course, Mariah. That was part of her back story before she ever arrived in Genoa City. The question to be asked here: “Why would Ian Ward have had an interest in Sharon’s baby?” There’s still a lot of fuel to this story. We’ve never met Sharon’s dad, and Sharon’s mother has never had much to say about him. Perhaps, he wanted his granddaughter to raise… Read more »

The thing is, Ian is sterile so I don’t think he’s Sharon’s father.

dansky

We know that he became sterile after an accident as a teen. We don’t know how old of a teen he was at the time of the accident. He and Doris could have been involved.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Perhaps lame wasn’t the right word, what I meant whatever back story they would need to invent to connect this present story to the story already told was going to be weak, for example Nick saying Sharon was poor and didn’t have a ultrasound as way to explain why she wouldn’t know she was carrying twins. Even without an ultrasound, she had some kind prenatal care, I am sure who ever was running the adoption of Cassie had her check out, so a doctor with stethoscope could hear two heat beats– that is what I meant— the back story to… Read more »

Jenny Brooks

Mary, I think that would be a brilliant explanation -that Ian is Doris’ brother! Whether the twins storyline is too predictable, who cares? What was cool, and not predictable was that Nick figured it out before Ian could use it as blackmail! And some of the tactics Nick used were very edgy-for him. Not as dark and underhanded as Victor, but still smart and sharp! I was impressed!

Reagan

Yeah I’ve had trouble with why he wanted Sharon’s kid when she did not know the Newman’s back then.

Wow, dansky….great reasoning…makes perfect sense to me. Ian Ward as Mariah’s grandfather and Sharon’s father would really ruffle some feathers in Genoa City. GOOD DEDUCTION.

TIIC must think the fans are stupid and will buy any crap they try to sell…Anyone that has watched the show for a week could have seen this coming from far far way.

I for one, quit watching this show over a month ago. I grew more than a little fed up with the stupid storylines. I don’t suffer fools easily and have better things to do with my time.

CeeCee
Guest

Exactly, Su0000. Someone said it was anticlimactic. I say, no way. There can’t be an anti anything….not when the climax was squashed from the get go. My 5-year old could have guessed Mariah was borne from Sharon.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

The only other explanation that would have made a modicum of sense, would have been if Victor had subjected Mariah to plastic surgery to look like Cassie. (But we knew that was not the case) . Afterall, his scope was to taunt Sharon and drive her nuts…not that she would have needed any nudging. Why did it take so long, I ask? There was no mystery, there was no suspense. We were all aware of the end result. That’s when the boredom took front and center position on my couch while I joined my son watching Spongebob.

I am happy to have Camryn Grimes back on Y&R. She brings good things to the show and to Shick’s family. I don’t see this plot move as “recycled”…it’s a soap after all. It’s good, standard, fun soapy goodness 🙂

Well, I like the storyline and think it is the only plausible explanation for why Cassie has an exact double running around.
But, UG! Why did they have to make Mariah make sexual advances toward Nick? Did they really have to go there?
Yes, I know, I know…it’s a soap damn it.

Timmm
Guest

Thats my only problem with this direction. I guess Sharon really needed a reason to throw Mariah out but why couldnt she be just stealing off her. That would have been so much better than trying to seduce Nick!

Rose
Guest

We could all probably make a list of the most reused story lines…no ones ever really dead, “I promise I’ll never lie to you again,” long lost relatives, twins, long-standing family, etc. Guess when soaps have been going on for so long, from radio to tv, even great writers have trouble inventing new ways to make “drama.” They aren’t Shakespeare who seemed to have started many of soap themes without a hospital as a major prop.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

They really don’t have to invent anything. All they need to do is look at real life and see what happens out there. Just embellish it and put a frame around it. But, as most soaps, they (writers) have the need to derail, to make a story fantastical and far-fetched. Our intelligence may be bruised somewhat by regaling us with stupidity….but, hey…they are soaps, afterall. I’ll continue watching Y&R in small doses. I doubt the writers of soaps, collectively, will ever be en par with Old Will. But, there’s a thought…..Perhaps the soap’s characters should start interacting using 15th-16th Century… Read more »

Meh. As you said, it was pretty obvious. What would have been more surprising is if it turned out that Mariah wasn’t related at all. What if it turned out that Grace Turner had slept with Cassie’s father was well and got pregnant? Anything but the “you didn’t know you had twins” thing again.

I’m very excited for the stories right now; they’re all really strong. Making Mariah Cassie’s twin is nice, though, I do hope with Camryn on contract that Cassie makes a ghostly appearance with both of her parents and her long-lost twin.

The only thing better would be that it turned out that Sharon had a baby boy who had a sex change.
come on folks–this is pure soapy goodness. I don’t even watch this soap and I think this is great (at least it is not sharon had two different baby daddies and delivered them at the same time–that was the biggest ewww factor with one life to live even if they took it back at the last week of the abc era of the soap

Whether it is a redo of some other storyline or not, I’m glad that this is the way it turned out. Don’t you think real life ever has similar instances? I love Camryn Grimes on the show. She and Sharon Case and Joshua Morrow have a chemistry and I don’t mean one like what has been happening with Mariah trying to seduce Nick (that one is sick in so many ways). I’m sure the life Mariah has supposedly lived she just wants to find someone who will give her some affection and she has no way of knowing Sharon is… Read more »

Yes, dawnhaze (interesting moniker). Such situations probably do happen in reality. But, when a person shows up amongst us who is the exact replica of someone else we once knew, we automatically put two and two together, as it were. We would not stand there scratching our heads, murmuring…”how can that be?” The conclusion, answer rather, is right there in front of us….sorry, I digress…this is a soap.

Mariah came to Genoa city and hung around for mos terrorizing abby and tyler! what was ians motive then and connection? way too many coincedences. Furthermore where is tyler and abby in this mess?! abby should have been all up in shicks face when maraih moved in , not more intrested in vicki s paternity yawn conumdrum.

Two thumbs up for this story! Thankfully, someone was smart enough to bring back Camryn Grimes to Y&R as Cassie’s troublesome twin, which fills the empty space on the canvas that was created when Cassie was inexplicably killed off in 2005. It wasn’t as if all story possibilities had dried up for Cassie, who had just started to become rebellious. Pairing Mariah with Greg Rikaart’s Kevin also appears to be a winner.

Thereby, leaving a “hook” dangling that there’s still another “baby” out there to be found! .. And the the third one would be a BOY! ..

I am enjoying it because Sharon Case, Joshua Morrow & Camryn Grimes are selling it. Their performances have been spot on. Just watched the three episodes and surprise did not FF the button JFP you and your writers should give these three actors a big kudos. The only flaw is the ageing of Summer and that falls on MAB! Please keep Sharon & Nick together even after the fall out (Summer) they are the end game. Y&R has gold here need to stay with what works. The scene with Sharon & Victor made me wish for repairing that relationship.

But the twin story would she not like suspect having twins? Or were they premature so they were very small or what….did sharon have multiply personalitys so she forgot that she suspected that she was carrying twins O_O…i dont see this show just read about it…from sweden and i dont have the channels….maybe they have solved that too in the show i might have missed it. Anyway i think its pretty silly…im happy Phyllis is back BUT i dont want her with Jack :S and it would be fun if Faith was Jacks kid 🙂

OKAY. Iknow my response is way late but I had taken a break from Y&R for awhile. I for one am glad to see (Camryn) back on the show. I missed Cassie and I was angry about how she was taken from the show before. If your child is on punishment and you let them still go to the movies, but she’s dressed like she’s going to a club or concert – than the loss of Cassie was Nick (Joshua) and Sharon’s (Sharon) fault she got killed! So, I’m HAPPY to see Cassie back on. She wasn’t the cutest child,… 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.

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. 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.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
