Young and the Restless spoilers reveal Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) returns to Genoa City. Is she back in town to take over Jabot? Beth was last seen in May as part of the Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams) Alzheimer’s story.
Currently, due to that pesky blood Abbott clause, only Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) and Traci Abbott are eligible to run Jabot.
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Beth Maitland Returns
Beth Maitland’s recent tweet hints she is back on the CBS lot taping new episodes for The Young and the Restless. She will pick up her role as Traci Abbott.
The most recent Young and the Restless spoilers indicate that Billy Abbott is on his way out as CEO of Jabot. As viewers know, Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) recently discovered that Billy embezzled from Jabot to cover his gambling losses.
It is just a matter of time before he and Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) share this information with the board and Y&R spoilers tease that Kyle is willing to do whatever it takes to push Billy out the door. Kyle is banking on the fact that his alliance with Ashley will bring him more power at Jabot. Plus, Kyle wants Billy gone because of Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) interest in the guy.

Traci Abbott Gets Rid of the Jabot Blood Abbott Clause?
Ashley Abbott has already told Kyle of her plan. She will ask Traci Abbott to step in as CEO and do away with the blood clause that has kept her out of the CEO position. While Ashley and Jack (Peter Bergman) may not be true biological Abbotts, both have worked at Jabot for years.
Traci Abbott has always been the peacemaker in the family so she’s uncomfortable going against her younger brother Billy. As Dina Mergeron’s health continues to decline, Traci could feel this would just tear the family apart even more.
Jabot Power Struggle Ramps Up on Y&R
Young and the Restless spoilers speculate that once Billy is out, Ashley would like to be CEO. The question is does Kyle have something up his sleeve to take the power position for himself? Since his return to the family business, Kyle has proven he will do whatever it takes to get ahead.
Jack Abbott can’t be written out of the mix either. He has enjoyed some success in his new position at Dark Horse but Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) recently put him in his place when he refused to end the Jaboutique leases. Jack is a suave businessman and did not enjoy it when he was told no by Nick. After such disrespect from Nick, are Jack’s days at Dark Horse numbered?
As Y&R spoilers have shown, the Abbots should not underestimate Billy. He will not go quietly and is not afraid to bet it all for a big win. As reported by CBS Soaps In Depth Eileen Davidson is on her way out so it is unlikely she will be the next CEO of Jabot.
Could Traci Abbott decide she enjoys her newfound power? Which Abbott (blood or not) will come out on top? With so many players in the mix, this family business could be in for a bumpy ride.
