In an interview with TV Guide, "The Young and the Restless" creator Jill Farren Phelps explained the twist involving Ian Ward and Mariah. While explaining the sudden development, she explained Ray Wise's Ian Ward was with them for a "short story arc." But soon they realized they would want to have him for a longer period of time. Thus it was necessary to connect his character to someone other than Nikki and Dylan.
She revealed that they have "long term plan" for Ray's character. A "great story" for him in store and "June is going to be huge and very crazy," teases Phelps. Now that he is out of jail, he is going to be in Genoa City. His storyline will initially revolve around his connection with Mariah and their relationship, but fans can look forward to the revelation of a "much bigger picture."
Not revealing much about the history of their relationship, she teased Mariah could be Ian's disciple or his daughter "in some form." About Ian, he still has feelings for Nikki and his sole purpose is to mess with the Newman family or "infiltrate the whole-rich family connection."
As for fake Cassie/Mariah, Jill Fareen Phelps revealed that she is going to be a "huge threat" to Abby and Tyler's blossoming relationship. She is also going to have "enormous involvement" in Newman family, particularly Sharon and Nick's relationship. Jill describes her as a "wild girl" but not a good one. Fans should not look forward to see her feeling sorry for Sharon, but her connection to Ian will be another big reveal.
Meanwhile, "The Young and the Restless" May spoilers are making the round. Celebrity Dirty Laundry reported some spoilers from Soap Opera Digest's print edition for the month of May.
