Young and the Restless Spoilers: Jack Abbott’s Search

Jack Abbott has been on the search for the true identity of his father for months now. Once he realized John Abbott (Jerry Douglas) was not his biological father Jack has had several promising lead. However, they have all been dead-ends.

First, Phillip Chancellor (Donnelly Rhodes) was a possibility and then briefly Neil Fenmore (Jim Storm). Both situations left Jack with more questions than answers. Now Young and the Restless spoilers indicate Jack’s father could very well be Albert Miller (George Kennedy). This shocking revelation means Victor Newman and Matt Miller are Jack’s half-brothers.

Timing Related to Eric Braeden’s Absence

Currently Y&R spoilers hint Matt’s return will be related to Jack’s paternity search. While Richard Gleason has only signed to appear in four episodes it is quite possible that could be extended now that it has been announced Victor Newman will be off the show for one month.

This has been a front and center storyline for months. Conceivably, Matt’s appearance could signify Jack will learn Albert Miller is the mystery man in the photograph. Perhaps he will give the DNA sample that ends Jack’s search. Matt could hold the key. Jack thinks finding his father will offer him peace. If this bombshell is true, peace is the last emotion Jack will feel for quite some time.
