The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Why Did Y&R Really Breakup Kyle and Lola?
Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) and Lola Abbott (Sasha Calle) aren’t together on ‘The Young and the Restless’. Reaching a mutual decision, the couple that came to be known as ‘Kola’ decided to split.
Fans of what was arguably Y&R’s most endearing pairing are understandably upset. Why was so much plot time put into developing this particular couple, only to have it dashed on what feels like a pushed outcome?
Theo Vanderway’s (Tyler Johnson) clash with his cousin, Kyle, and a crush on Lola could be cited as the forces that fueled the end of ‘Kola’. But something else happened recently that offers a plausible explanation for decision-makers to dissolve the chemistry that Mealor and Calle projected through their characters.

Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) and Tanner Watts (Chase Coleman) were seen in a photo that was posted to spark speculation and hoped-for controversy among fans of the touring singers, who were formerly married. The story-within-a-story might be a wink at Y&R’s fans as well.
Sure, this is pure speculation and it’s not an identical comparison. But it’s fair to believe that separating Kyle and Lola, then remixing them with Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Theo was planned from the start in order to stir the fans.
Of course, that type of intentional act would be risky, as fans who invested time and emotions in Kyle and Lola’s relationship could be alienated. The gamble would be in believing that this group would stick around to support each character’s next chapter in the split storyline and in thinking that other fans would start to watch.

Y&R Spoilers – Skyle Was A Real Couple
There’s no denying that Summer and Kyle, as played by various actors in recent years, were a legitimate couple. King’s return to the cast in 2018, after a brief respite, resulted in a re-imagining of her character.
Rebelling against the ‘Snowflake’ Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) tagged her as in the past, Summer stormed back into town with intense bravado. Her reckless, me-first attitude eventually served to alienate Kyle. He, in turn fell in love with Lola.

Kyle insisted that the love he had for Lola was real. Feeling heartbroken, Kyle attempted to assure his wife that the deeper feelings he admittedly always retained for Summer doesn’t mean that he didn’t believe in ‘Kola’s’ marriage.
Yes, it’s complicated to explain away a romance that came to dominate a significant portion of Y&R’s episodes within the last year. But longtime soap fans know that this may have been the plan.
Write ‘Kola’ into a realized marriage with the intent of tearing it down just months after the wedding and before children expanded that family. Reviving ‘Skyle’ and creating ‘Tola’ follows, as they have.
