Young and the Restless (YR) Spoilers: Michael Forces Mariah To Dish – Tessa Revealed As Blackmailer

Young and the Restless Spoilers Michael Baldwin [Christian LeBlanc]Michael (Christian Le Blanc) needed to go there on ‘The Young and the Restless’. With Christine (Lauralee Bell) forcing Mariah (Camryn Grimes) to acknowledge that she was aware of the digital video recording that showed the coverup crew transporting a seemingly deceased J.T. Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) on the much-talked about April thirteenth night, attorney Baldwin had to pressure Miss Copeland.

Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) arrived in court prior to Mariah, which provoked thoughts in the minds of viewers. Trouble follows Miss Porter wherever she’s gone, so what would ensue now?

While a poor soul at heart, Tessa has been incapable of living peacefully since arriving in Genoa City. Her various legal issues, some not her own fault, others being exactly that, put Mariah in a bad spot months ago.

Young And The Restless Spoilers – Tessa Exposed In Court

Previously revealed as the blackmailer, at least the authorities hadn’t known what Tessa did to Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and the others. Keeping that secret, among the many that have defined this truly tangled J.T. storyline, was understandably seen as vital. But Michael’s line of cross during the trial helps to bust that protective bubble.

The coming arrest of Tessa is yet another terrible consequence that could have been avoided if Nikki had simply told the truth almost eleven months ago when Y&R first projected this arc deeps into the minds of daytime’s largest same-day-episode-view audience. Mrs. Newman, more than any other coverup crew member, is most responsible for all that’s transpired, but didn’t need to, ever since.

As for Vickie (Amelia Heinle), she’s the true victim in this tale. Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) has been perfectly cast as the crew’s snake. Sharon (Sharon Case), well, she just went along and has paid mightily for that poor decision.

Young And The Restless Spoilers – What Other Dirt Is Tessa Responsible For?

It is intriguing to wonder if Tessa has concealed more than meets the soapy eye. Might she be involved in the Newman Ranch surveillance scheme? Who, including Mariah, could fully claim no considering all that’s happened since Fairbanks’ engaging character first appeared outside Crimson Lights strumming her guitar strings, playing for money?

Yes and no one seem the right answers to last questions asked. When will this storyline end? That response remains elusive now that Y&R fans find themselves nearing a calendar year since all this began.
