Young and the Restless returns with new episodes this summer, so what’s next for Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson)? Right before Y&R flipped to reruns, things were not going well for the new Abbott-Mergeron cousin. Here’s a look at five predictions for Theo when Y&R starts filming again.
#1 Theo Vanderway Takes Job With Aunt Ashley on Young and the Restless
Y&R recaps remind that Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) set up Theo Vanderway – and he’s fired from Jabot now. Of course, Theo was playing dirty too, but Kyle clearly had a vendetta against Theo. And he didn’t seem to care that his ex-BFF is part of the family. Now, the new cousin is jobless.
Before, on Young and the Restless, Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) offered Theo a job. Her company’s aligned with Jabot now, but still a separate business. So, why not have Ashley bring Theo Vanderway over to work with her? She knows what it’s like to be on the outside looking in.
#2 Will He and Lola Finally Hook Up on Y&R?
Young and the Restless teased us many times with Theo and Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) kissing and just on the verge of getting intimate. But, they haven’t had their love scene yet. Worse yet, some people were spreading nasty rumors that Y&R fired them. The actors confirmed it’s not true.
So, expect more scenes on Young and the Restless with Theo Vanderway heating up with Lola. She split from Kyle now, so she’s available. And Theo’s got killer chemistry with the pretty chef. So, we’d hope to see more of “Thola” once Y&R resumes filming new episodes.

#3 Kyle vs. Theo – The New Jack vs. Victor on Young and the Restless?
Now, Jack Abbott’s (Peter Bergman) feud with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) died down. But the CBS soap still needs rivalries to keep up the drama. With Theo Vanderway out at Jabot, maybe he’ll wind up over at Newman Enterprises. That way, it can be cousin versus cousin.
Will Young and the Restless set-up these two as the next generation of fierce rivals on the soap? It would be great to see Theo Vanderway battling Kyle as corporate titans. Maybe that comes soon for Tyler Johnson’s character on CBS daytime.
#4 Grandson Bonds with Dina Before It’s too Late on Y&R
Young and the Restless must also address Dina Mergeron’s (Marla Adams) battle with Alzheimer’s. However, that might delay awhile if soaps ban older actors from shooting at first. But, every time Theo’s got scenes with Dina, they’re charming together.
Of course, Kyle’s been a real jerk about it, treating his cousin like he’s got no right to be there with her. But, Young and the Restless should bring the whole family together as Dina’s final hours approach. That includes Theo. So, watch for more scenes of him bonding with the grandma he never knew.
#5 Will Traci Get Closer to Theo Vanderway?
Another family bond might strengthen on Young and the Restless. We should see more of Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) when new episodes return. Already, she’s been open-minded about her new nephew. And Traci’s the kindest of all the Abbotts. So, she’ll reach out to Theo.
How nice would it be if Theo Vanderway got along with his dad’s half-brother and sisters on Young and the Restless? It’s something his father never got to do. He’s got a role to play in the family and deserves to be there. So, watch for more Theo Vanderway as they start filming new episodes soon.
