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!
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!
