‘The Young and The Restless’ Spoilers: Jack’s Cavalier Attitude Pushes Phyllis To The Edge – Furious Her Husband Won’t Battle Victor

'The Young and The Restless' Spoilers: Jack's Cavalier Attitude Pushes Phyllis To The Edge - Furious Her Husband Won't Battle VictorJack Abbott (Peter Bergman) has hated Victor Newman since both characters were middle-aged. But, last year the writers pushed ‘Jackie Boy’ in a different direction on ‘The Young and the Restless’. After the Marco (also played by Bergman) arc played out, Jack decided to end his personal war with the Moustache. That choice directy led to ‘Philly’ being formed. Jack’s recent courtroom comments underscored his unwillingness to battle with Victor and served to push Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) to the edge of divorce.

Phyllis and Billy (Jason Thompson) couldn’t believe that Jack threw in the monogrammed towel. So, they joined forces in an attempt to revive the Paragon project. Doing so created time for these characters to be together and allowed their feelings to develop. Even though Paragon II tanked, the growing fondness each character had for the other was undeniable on ‘The Young and the Restless’.

Jack has remained mostly oblivious to the romantic developments that will at least threaten, if not end, his marriage. ‘Red’ is torn between the man she’s loved for years and his brother. This latest public incident creates another perceived betrayal. Of course, Phyllis is merely using these events to fill her own claimed needs, which is something this character often did when Michelle Stafford wore Phyllis’ bodacious pumps on ‘The Young and the Restless’.

In an attempt to gain time, Phyllis recently checked into a room at the Genoa City Athletic Club. Jack is trying to convince himself that a series of traumatic events, that began with Victor injecting Marco into their lives and recently included Ian Ward (Ray Wise) holding Phyllis and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) captive in the Abbott cabin, have affected his wife’s ongoing mental state. His assessment of those points is right, but not fully complete.

Phyllis’ response to what’s happened in her life involves free will choices. She allowed herself to become emotionally involved with Billy, rather than seek personal and marriage counseling as a true solution to her problems. And on that major count, Phyllis is guilty. Not Jack, not Victor, ‘Red’ herself.

    IMO it’s nobody’s fault/guilt – sometimes a bond just occurs, and feelings develop. It’s not that it is planned; it just happens. 🙂
