‘Young and the Restless’: Avery Clark Back for Custody Battle – Adam’s Lawyer Against Nick?

Young and the RestlessJessica Collins who played fan-favorite attorney Avery Bailey Clark recently Instagrammed a hint that she’s back to work at the CBS sudser. She wrote that she was reprising one of her favorite roles and reuniting with a cast she loves. Plus, from the hair and costume she was in, it definitely looks like she was powering up for an appearance as her lawyer character in Genoa City. So, it sure looks like Avery is back to town and there’s only one big case brewing – the custody battle over Christian Newman (McGuigan Twins). Take a look at her post below and other hints.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Avery Clark Back and Reunited with Phyllis Summers?

Y&R spoilers remind Avery’s been absent since leaving the CBS soap in 2011. At the time, her sister Phyllis Summers Abbott (Michelle Stafford) was in a coma after an accidental fall caused by Sharon Newman (Sharon Case). That was when Phyllis found out Sharon changed Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) paternity test results to make it look like Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) was the father. Really, it was Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow).

Coming out of the coma, Stafford’s recast Gina Tognoni was revealed and Phyllis stumbled into a wedding. But now, the recast was undone. Just in time for a reunion with her only sister, the former actress is back. So, this will be a long overdue family reunion. The question is whether Phyllis was the one to invite her sister back – or was it Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). Because Adam needs a lawyer and GC seems to have only one on Young and the Restless.

Y&R Spoilers: Nick Has Michael – Adam Newman Hires Avery?

All sings point to Young and the Restless spoilers that Adam Newman asks Avery Clark to rep him in the custody case. The only lawyer regularly in town is Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) and he’s working for Nick Newman. So, whether Phyllis suggests her sister – or Adam thinks of it on his own – it seems clear she’s back for the custody case. There’s no other legal matters brewing to bring her back.

Plus, it’s clear that Adam and Phyllis are united against the town since everyone else shuns him. So, it makes since she’d appeal to her sister Avery Clark to come help Adam Newman fight for custody against Nick Newman. Of course, Nick is already angry with Phyllis and says she’s siding with Adam. This cements things and drives a bigger wedge between the exes. Avery Bailey is just the answer Adam needs, Young and the Restless spoilers tell us. But Nick’s got a past with Avery that will complicate things.

Young and the Restless: Adam vs Nick With Avery in the Middle

Bringing Avery Bailey Clark AKA Avery Summers back to Y&R means some hurt feelings. Adam Newman hiring her makes the most sense, but she’s got other relationships to consider. First, Nick Newman is one of Avery’s exes whom she still had a good rapport with when she left Genoa City. If Avery fights to take his precious Christian away, it will be gloves off with Nick. That’s not a good way to blow back into town. Plus, she was once law partners with Michael.

However Young and the Restless fans know that Avery feels loyalty to Phyllis. So, Avery helping Phyllis get back on her feet after losing Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson), the CEO position at Jabot, and Nick totally makes sense. Right now, things are a mess for Phyllis and she could use some support and she’s allied with Adam. Avery Clark’s return couldn’t be happening at a better time for Red. So wait on more Y&R spoilers to confirm more details but fingers crossed, she’s back for the battle.
