‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Mal Young Ruins Shick Reunion – Fans Furious

Young and the Restless spoilers indicate Mal Young has wrecked Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon Newman‘s (Sharon Case) love. Looks like they are done for good this time. The executive producer looks to enjoy getting fan’s hopes up only to have them come crashing down again. His antics have fans furious and that outrage is obvious by falling ratings.

Although Nick declared he won’t give up, the Y&R spoilers show that Sharon is likely moving on with a new man. That means no happily ever after for Shick – the thing many viewers have been waiting a long time to see.

Young and the Restless Spoilers – Long Awaited Shick Reunion Crashes and Burns

Longtime Y&R fans had been waiting and hoping for a Shick reunion for years. As the wedding approached, the excitement built. In spite of several obstacles, Nick and Sharon were genuinely happy. Several rivals were even able to put their differences aside. Many even become a part of the wedding party.

Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) even convinced Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) to attend the nuptials. Noah Newman (Robert Adamson) and Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind) returned to witness the ceremony. However, leave it to Mal Young to make the whole thing blow up in fans’ faces.

Mal Young Did the Same Thing to Hevon Fans

Recent Y&R history reminds that the UK showrunner did the same thing to fans of Hevon. After their split, Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) and Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan) took two years to find their way back to each other. They finally were about to get married, had a baby on the way then bam – horrifying death.

Not only did watchers lose Hevon, but they also saw Hilary and Devon’s baby die, too. It was a cruel twist for viewers that loved this couple. Plus, when you factor in the behind-the-scenes chatter that Mishael Morgan’s exit was not what she wanted, it makes everything worse. This is much like what was done to Shick.

Mal Young Forces Relationships At Expense of Beloved Characters

Young and the Restless spoilers show Nick and Sharon’s happy pairing will be sacrificed. Recent spoilers and promo pics show Sharon is on a path to get together with Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso). First, Rey stops by the coffee-house daily. Second, he offers Sharon a job. Finally, he moves into the apartment Sharon owns.

As illustrated, every move puts these characters closer together while the wedge between Shick grows. Furthermore, Rey has even pushed Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) out of the GCPD and Genoa City completely. Mal Young paired Abby with Arturo Rosales (Jason Canela). And recently, Y&R had Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) plant a kiss on Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor), much to Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) dismay.

Increasingly, the newbies are front and center with no attention paid to fan’s reactions. Perhaps by pairing the new characters to legacy family characters, he hopes to force viewers to accept them.

Young and the Restless Fans Furious

Most of the changes made by Mal Young have longtime fans frustrated and angry. One only has to look at the current Young and the Restless ratings report to see that fans are leaving in droves. The latest report from September 24-28, 2018 shows that Y&R lost 377,000 viewers from the same time last year. Further, this ratings slump shows little sign of slowing.

Ratings don’t lie. Fans are not happy with the current storylines. Mal Young has a habit of putting couples together then snatching away their happiness. This is not “love in the afternoon” – it’s more like “love for an afternoon”. Examples of this include Devon and Hilary, Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) and Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni), plus Nick and Sharon.

Additionally, the firing of Doug Davidson and Mishael and Eileen Davidson’s coming exit further alienated viewers. One can only hope that someone will start listening to fans before Y&R can’t be saved as things look grim for the CBS soap.
