A possible connection to the Abbott family

Jack recently admitted that he is not on the best of terms with his firstborn son Keemo Abbott ( last Phillip Moon) but does not believe Keemo is the one trying to contact him. Based on her age Wang's character could be Keemo's daughter and Jack's granddaughter. Spoilers are suggesting that Moon might return as Keemo or there could be a recast. Whether he returns to Genoa City or not it's likely that Wang's character will be the one to show up with or without him and help solve the mystery. The messages Jack is receiving are coming from a property that is owned by his late wife's father who would be Keemo's grandfather. Jack admitted on Wednesday that he lied and withheld the fact that his son wants nothing to do with him. This is why it is likely that Wang is Keemo's daughter and desires to know the Abbott side of the family Jack decided on Tuesday to go to Los Angeles to figure this mystery out. he will probably run into Wang's character who might shed some light on the situation. Spoilers don't say how long this actress will be on The Young and the Restless but fans will be watching to find out. Now that Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) has left town, Jack really needs someone in his immediate family that he can interact with and who possibly might help him run Jabot.
