‘Young and the Restless’: Mishael Morgan Back As Hilary or Another Character?

Young and the Restless spoilers hint that Mishael Morgan could come back to the Y&R canvas. But with Hilary Curtis dead, that’s a problem. Fans know her exit can be blamed on the last showrunner`s regime. That guy made sure her character could never come back. Yet many fans don’t care. They want her back anyway.

Now, there’s chatter that Mishael Morgan is headed back. And this is beyond her recent ghostly reappearance. This could be accomplished in a number of ways. With the new regime reversing many of the missteps of the past, this seems plausible. Take a look at what may come soon on Y&R on CBS.

Young and the Restless: Perhaps Nate Helped Hilary Curtis Fake Her Death

Y&R fans are passionate about Hilary Curtis and Mishael Morgan. So, the easiest solution is to undo her death. They could get really soapy and say Dr Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) helped her fake her demise. After losing her baby, she may have lost the will to live her former life. While this story is doable, it probably won’t go down well and is pretty extreme.

So, if the soap brings back Hilary, they need something better. This is especially true for those who watched as Hilary slipped away in the hospital and watched Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) struggle with the aftermath of the death of his wife and unborn child. It would be a shame to undo all that good soap drama from Young and the Restless. So hopefully, Y&R wouldn’t do this.

Y&R: Maybe Hilary Curtis Has a Doppelganger

Y&R writers might create a doppelganger and they could write that the lookalike died in the crash with Lily Ashby (Christel Khalil). But that also seems pretty extreme. However, it would explain the sudden softer side of Hilary that Young and the Restless fans got to see before she died.

Fans haven’t seen a double duty story since Jeanne Cooper played the dual role of Katherine Chancellor and Marge Cotroke from 1989 until 2009. They could always create a new character who just happens to look like Hilary Curtis. Other soaps went that route when the brought back past actors. Young and the Restless could follow suit.

Young and Restless: Does Hilary Have an Identical Twin?

Y&R writers could always invent a previously unknown twin to Hilary Curtis. This story would allow fans to see Mishael Morgan back on the canvas at the CBS sudser. It would also keep the current storylines moving. They could also then make her twin very Hilary-like which might excite fans of the original character.

But how would Young and the Restless writers portray a Hilary Curtis twin? Would she be sweet like Hilary was when Devon fell for her? Or could she be more wicked like when Hilary first came to Genoa City intent on destroying the Winters family because she blamed them for her mother’s death?

If the shows brings back Mishael Morgan, it will be interesting to see what direction they decide to take. Hilary Curtis was a wildly popular character and it was hard for fans to say goodbye. But there’s some chatter swirling that the show might be looking for a way to bring the actress back on contract. So, wait and watch for updates on this possible return.
