Phillip "Chance" Chancellor IV may be in deep trouble
One thing that can be counted on regarding daytime fans is that they will speculate when they do not have answers, This is what is happening now regarding Phillip Chance Chancellor IV and Ben "Stitch' Rayburn. Some fans as well as spoilers ae suggesting that Stitch may have abducted both Abby's husband and Mariah who is her surrogate mother. Viewers are becoming frustrated that no one is taking Ms. Copeland's disappearance seriously. In real time anyone who watches detective programs knows that receiving text messages only is usually a sign you are talking to someone other than the owner of the phone. At this point Mariah is going to be missing doctor appointments as well as the fact that she is not reaching out to Tessa or Sharon. Ben arrived in town shortly before her disappearance and was seen in the park with Mariah just before she went missing. There have not been any real clues and everything is innuendo at this point. Christine is no longe providing Nina and Abby updates on Chance and this is why so many believe the two situations are connected.
Wake up everybody
Fans of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS are becoming weary over how Mariah's loved ones are not taking her disappearance seriously. Sharon, Tessa, Abby, and Devon all sit around discussing it as if there is not something major going on. Every one of them should know that Marriah wouldn't just leave without telling her loved ones at this stage in her pregnancy. Even Rey did not seem concerned before he left town with Chelsea. Ben getting his hands on Chance when he was in the middle of a secret assignment does not seem reasonable but this is daytime television. If this is indeed what happened and he is also holding Marriah the question would be "Why"? Is Stitch still in love with Abby and does he want her all to himself? Is he planning on releasing his hostages or does he have something more sinister in mind? When Donny Boaz was let go from his role as Chance, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS SAID the role would not be recast. This could indicate that at some point Nina's son might be killed off. In the meantime, everyone who cares for Marriah needs to wake up and realize that something is very wrong.
Will Nina have double heartbreak
Tricia Cast who has portrayed Nina Webster on The Young and the Restless announced the death of her husband Bat Mcgrath over a year ago and fans weRe hoping she might return to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. If something tragic were to happen to both her son and grandson there would be no reason for Nina to stick around Genoa City and viewers are hoping this double tragedy will not take place. This is one storyline where the facts are being kept secret and that is why there is so much speculation surrounding the actors. There was a point where some Y&R viewers thought perhaps Justin Gaston would replace Donny Boaz as Chance since he stepped in during the wedding scenes. Gaston and Melissa Ordway are married off-screen and have great chemistry. Still all the viewers have to go on is the fact that the execs said the role would not be recast.
Time to call in the GCPD
Tessa had wanted to call the GCPD but admitted to Sharon that it was too soon. Now that some time has gone by she may revisit that idea especially since Stitch suggested it. There have been no spoilers or rumors giving any details on this situation so fans are trying to figure it out on their own. It's entirely possible that Stitch is a good guy and really trying to help but unless another culprit comes forth he will remain the prime suspect in the mids of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS viewers. Hopefully, soon there will be news regarding Chance and Marriah and what Ben Rayburn is really up to. The leakers and set insiders have been quiet on this one but eventually, something has to break so stay tuned.
