Simon Black Is a Blast From Chelsea's Grifter Past on the Young and the Restless

Cheryl has been writing breaking news, spoiler alerts and recaps for daytime drama for several years and is a soap fan for five decades.


Simon Legree Black

The Young and the Restless spoilers from Soap Dirt reveal that Simon Black will soon show up in Genoa City and upset Chelsea. Jeffrey Vincent Parise will portray the villain who is a blast from Ms. Lawson's criminal past. If Parise looks familiar it is because his last daytime drama role was as bad guy Carlos Rivera on General Hospital. A Youtube video related to the GH storyline indicates that Simon once kidnapped Conner and blackmailed his mother. Mr. Black sounds more like Simon Legree and will surely cause Chelsea to to revisit her dark side. Earlier spoiler alerts suggested that Simon may have unfinished business with Adam related to gambling in Los Vegas and anything Is possible.

Chelsea will have her hands full because she is also dealing with Conner, who is acting like a demon seed. He begged to be allowed to live with his father and his mother caved in and left him with Adam. She feels as if she has lost her son and this could make her vulnerable where Simon is concerned. Details related to Chelsea and Mr. Black have not yet been released. Viewers will want to know if they pulled off cons together and or were romantically involved.

Chelsea’s secrets

Chelsea left Genoa City about a year and a half ago and obviously was pretty busy. The question that will be on everyone’s mind is at what point did Simon Black enter the picture? Was he someone from Chelsea’s long past or did they connect during the past year and a half? Was their connection prior to her second marriage or were they involved in something shady prior to Ms. Lawson becoming a widow?

Spoiler alerts have revealed that Nick will soon run for public office and that his last name will prove to be both a blessing and a curse. His connection to Chelsea may also be a problem depending on what Simon Black decides to reveal. There are a few possibilities of why he has now decided to turn up in Genoa City. Chelsea may owe him money from some con they worked. together or he may have found out she is now a rich widow. Perhaps Black went to jail for kidnapping Conner and believes he should get the blackmail money. The reason for his kidnapping Adam’s son will also need to be explained. All of this could affect Nick’s desire to be a part of local government.


Victor and Adam may get involved

Simon Black has no clue what he is getting himself into by coming to Genoa City. In addition to possibly having to deal with Nick, it’s possible Adam and Victor will be involved. The Newman patriarch has given the reigns of his company to Victoria so he needs something to occupy his time. He will continue to keep an eye on his legacy but he will need to have other irons in the fire. Victor is extremely protective of his family and Conner is his grandson. Neither he nor Adam will take kindly finding out that man from Chelsea’s past put Conner in harm’s way.

Chelsea will probably do all she can to keep Simon away from her loved ones, especially her son. Conner is living with Aam right now so that could end up being a good thing. The Young and the Restless viewers, however, know that secrets always come to light and this one will be no different. On the one hand, Chelsea is working legitimately for the Grand Phoenix Hotel, while simultaneously having Kevin to launder money for her. When Simon Black shows up in Genoa City, Ms. Lawson's two worlds will eventually collide. There was a reason Simon was blackmailing Chelsea and the fact that he held her son hostage tells viewers what type of person he is.

Simon Black, however, has not come up against the Newman men before. When all the secrets are revealed he probably will wish he had never come to Genoa City. Nick Adam an especially Victor will deal harshly with the blackmailer in order to protect Conner. Paul will probably eventually get involved which will thrill Doug Davidson fans. Although he was rehired on The Young and the Restless, he is on recurring status an is rarely seen. Jeffrey Parise's character is scheduled to make his first appearance in Genoa City on November 1st, just in time for November Sweeps so stay tuned.
