Young and the Restless spoiler’s report Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) leaves Genoa City soon and rumor has it a secret about Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) spurs her exit. Eileen Davidson taped her last episode for the show on September 24. Her final appearance on-screen is set for next week.

The bigger question is what will drive Ashley Abbott out of town? Y&R spoilerssay she could learn a long-hidden secret surrounding the Traci Abbott paternity that leads to her departure. Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) has a hand in the reveal of the secret as does Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams). Just when you thought the Abbotts could find some peace, everything explodes.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Traci Abbott Not John’s Child?

Recent Y&R spoilers show that Dina Mergeron insists to Kyle Abbott that there is a secret safe at Jabot. They find it in John Abbott’s (Jerry Douglas) old office. It is very possible that when Ashley Abbott pushed Dina to remember her past infidelities, she triggered this memory of the secret hiding place.

Kyle and Dina find the safe and what’s inside stuns everyone. Young and the Restless spoilers expose that the information inside is a bombshell. The entire Abbott family will feel the ramifications of the find. Rumors are flying that the family may learn that Traci Abbott is not John’s biological daughter.

If true, that means John will, in fact, have only two biological kids – Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson). This twist has been teased for a while. It could be that showrunner Mal Young was dropping hints all along by having Dina forget that Traci Abbott was her kid. It’s been a constant source of hurt for her.

Ashley Abbott Leaves Town To Find The Truth – Young and the Restless Spoilers

Y&R spoilers swirled about how Ashley Abbott exits Genoa City since Eileen Davidson is leaving the CBS soap. This information could lead Ashley on a quest to find the truth. Currently, Ashley disappointed the entire family with her Jack DNA scheme. Young and the Restless spoilers detail Ashley to make up for all the pain she caused the family recently.

There is no doubt this information will hurt Traci Abbott terribly. Ashley Abbott leaving to chase the truth could be a step towards redemption. Executive Producer and Head Writer Mal Young said that Ashley will be back for another major storyline in the future. However, Eileen Davidson said she is only open to small appearances and will NOT return for any long-term commitment.

Surely Eileen Davidson knows her plans better than Mal Young, but it’s clear her exit should be open-ended in case she decides to come back for an arc. Fans are up in arms over many recent legacy character exits (Paul, Gloria, Michael, Hilary, etc.) and CBS might be trying to stop the outcry as Eileen exits in what might be a permanent move.

Fall sweeps starts, then Ashley Abbotts leaves GC as Eileen Davidson takes her final bow. Be sure to watch as this staggering Abbott drama plays out and Ashley Abbott and Eileen Davidson say farewell.
