Young and the Restless Spoilers: Lonely Jack Abbott Needs a New Lady

Y&R recaps remind it’s been a good long time since Jack Abbott had a love in his life. His last lover, Kerry Johnson (Alice Hunter), terribly betrayed him. You might recall that Jack was horrified to discover he had a corporate spy in his bed.

Since then, Jack had a little “flirtmance” with Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman) on Young and the Restless. But, that came to nothing in the end. Now Lauren and her husband, Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc), are solid. And Jack’s just a pal.

As for Jack, he’d appreciate a lady to support him emotionally now on Young and the Restless. Spoilers confirm that Jack’s mother, Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams), continues her decline, and he needs someone to comfort him in these tough times.

Kristian Alfonso Swaps from Days of Our Lives to Y&R?

If you only watch Young and the Restless, and not other soaps like DOOL, you might not know Kristian Alfonso. For almost 40 years, the brunette beauty played Hope Brady on the NBC soap. She was part of the epic super couple of Hope and Bo Brady (Peter Reckell).

However, after nearly four decades, Kristian Alfonso decided to leave NBC daytime. Then, in a recent interview, she said she was open to a role on another soap. We heard from our inside source at Young and the Restless that Kristian’s in talks with them.

The insider at Y&R specified that Kristian was chatting with CBS about playing Jack Abbott’s new love interest. Right now, Kristian’s completely wrapped her run at Days of Our Lives and looking for a new opportunity. So, maybe she’ll come to Young and the Restless.

What’s Ahead for Jack on Young and the Restless?

Y&R writers scripted a storyline for the Abbotts that launches soon. It’s about Jack Abbott and his siblings finding a memento that’s important to Dina and their father. At a glance, it sounds a bit like the ill-fated music box plot. So, wait to see Jack and the other Abbotts in that.

Then, once Young and the Restless can have Marla back on the set, her Alzheimer’s plot resumes. So, it would be nice if the CBS soap introduced a new love for Jack by then. That way, when his mother reaches her final days, he’ll have someone to lean on that loves him.

And, if the negotiations work out, it might be Kristian Alfonso playing a new woman for Jack Abbott. Of course, we’ll update you when we get info from our Young and the Restless source about Kristian coming over to Y&R and other hot casting news.
