‘Young and the Restless’ Comings & Goings: Nina Webster Back for Sweeps – Here’s Why

Young and the Restless comings and goings confirm Nina Webster (Tricia Cast) returns, and Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz) is the one who lures her back to Genoa City. It may seem random to bring back Nina after so many years, but that means something big must be coming that requires her presence on the CBS soap opera.

Young and the Restless Comings & Goings: Who is Nina Webster?

Newer Y&R fans might not recall Nina Webster since she debuted back in the mid-80s. Nina was last spotted in Genoa City in 2014. She first came to town as a troubled, pregnant teen. She became fast friends with Christine Blair (Lauralee Bell) after a black market ring sold her son.

Later, on Young and the Restless, young Nina Webster turned her eye on pal Christine’s boyfriend, Philip Chancellor III (Thom Bierdz). Unfortunately, the story of Chance Chancellor’s conception isn’t one of romance. Instead, Nina got Philip drunk and slept with him – then wound up pregnant.

The Chancellors tried to buy off Nina but failed, and she wound up a wealthy woman when Philip “died” on Young and the Restless in a drunk driving incident. Later, he was revealed to be alive but said he was gay. Nina Webster was last seen in GC for Katherine’s death-anniversary party. And now she’s back. But why?

Shotgun Sweeps Wedding for Chance Chancellor & Abby on Y&R?

On Young and the Restless, Nina Webster’s son, Chance Chancellor, makes GC his home. Chance put down roots with his new GCPD job and romance with Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway). Now, Chance hopes Abby will soon turn up pregnant – and they plan to live their lives together.

So it could be on Young and the Restless that Chance proposes soon to Abby and wants to walk her down the aisle ASAP. That could be because she turns up pregnant – or because they want to get pregnant ASAP. Either way, Chance wants mom Nina to bond with his future wife Abby on the CBS sudser.

For now, Young and the Restless spoilers have Nina Webster back as sweeps kick-off and then again in late November. The latter date coincides with the 12,000th episode. So, it could be a Newman-Chancellor wedding, linking the two legacy families that we’ll see on that big milestone episode of the soap opera.

Will Nina Have Info for Amanda Sinclair too on Young and the Restless?

One more reason for Nina Webster to return might be Amanda Sinclair’s (Mishael Morgan) search for answers. Remember, Nina was the victim of Rose DeVille (Darlene Conley), a human trafficker who targeted teen unwed mothers and sold their babies. Although Rose is dead, Nina Webster knew about her illegal operation.

Remember, Amanda recently found out on Young and the Restless that Hilary’s mom, Rose Turner, wasn’t even pregnant. So, now it seems increasingly clear that Rose got Hilary from somewhere else. And someone abandoned Amanda after the split from her twin sister. Could it be that Rose DeVille was the one that set up the transaction?

With Rose dead, Nina Webster might be a source of information for Amanda, tease Young and the Restless spoilers. Now, Amanda’s got a PI looking into her past, and it might lead back to Ms. DeVille’s baby-stealing operation. So, there might be two reasons Nina returns – for her son’s big life event – and to explore the mystery of Amanda’s origins.

Watch next week to see Nina Webster’s big return – and then again later this month on Y&R for another appearance.
