“The Young and the Restless” Executive Producer Mal Young spoke about what we can expect for the Single and Surviving Sharon (Sharon Case) during February Sweeps!
Sharon: “Secrets have a way of finding Sharon. She now must carry the secret of why Dylan (Steve Burton) really left Genoa City, knowing that revealing the truth may place Dylan’s life in jeopardy. Sharon is a survivor and will attack the future with renewed confidence,” Young told “Soap Opera Digest” (SOD) in its latest print issue.
After having to take responsibility for Dylan (Steve Burton) leaving Genoa City because of the baby Christian (Sully) storyline, Sharon ends up hitting a low point in her life. In the latest issue of “CBS Soaps In Depth” (aka CBS SID), Sharon Case admits right now it’s a very dark period on top of another one for her alter ego. “She has lost so much,” says Case. “The idea of losing anything else has her whole word falling apart.”
As we Y&R fans know, Dylan was actually in deep undercover but because his cover with the drug traffickers was blown, he had to go into the witness protection program. Her father-in-law Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) suggested Sharon take the heat for his departure from GC in order to keep Dylan alive.
In the meantime, where does this leave Sharon?! Well for starters, she gets comfort from a most unexpected source. Her pesky mother-in-law Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott)! In the same issue of SOD, Young explains, “The fact Dylan has left affects both his mother and wife, and because Nikki relates to Sharon’s heartbreak on another level, she truly believes they can get through this time together. But then again, this is Sharon and Nikki we are talking about.”
Sharon laments she has no one to turn to while Nikki has Victor (Eric Braeden). Young continues, “Nikki knows that Sharon is lashing out because of the fact that Dylan’s gone…she understands that Sharon is hurting right now and Nikki is as well. Also, Sharon can’t help but blame herself, knowing that her lies about baby Sully (aka Christian) were a major factor that drove Dylan to take the assignment in the first place.
We at Soap Cities don’t think Sharon will be down for too long, as spoilers indicate Sharon will turn to Victor for help next week!
