Mariah Copeland has been the thorn in the side of most of the residents of Genoa City on “The Young and the Restless.” She was brought to town by Victor Newman to torment Sharon Newman and get her to reveal the secret of Summer Newman’s paternity.
Under the watchful eye of mentor Ian Ward, Mariah Copeland seems to be headed toward seducing Nick Newman into having an affair. On Monday, August 11, Mariah was seen, yet again, trying her best to get Nick to notice her in a romantic way. Is it possible that Nick can be lead into a liaison with a woman not only young enough to be his daughter, but who looks exactly like his deceased daughter?
The writers for “The Young and the Restless” are not strangers to writing incestuous-like storylines. Sharon Newman has been married to half-brothers Nick and Adam Newman, as well as their father Victor Newman. Sharon has also had relationship with half-brothers Jack and Billy Abbott. At one point Sharon did not know if the father of her daughter Faith was Nick Newman, Jack Abbott or Billy Abbott. A paternity test revealed that Faith is Nick’s daughter.
Sharon and Phyllis have both been married to Jack Abbott as well as Nick Newman. Nick had an affair with Phyllis who got pregnant and gave birth to their daughter Summer. Then, when married to Phyllis, Nick had an affair with his former wife Sharon. Sharon got pregnant and gave birth to their daughter Faith.
How the writers at “The Young and the Restless” will incorporate a romantic storyline between Mariah Copeland and Nick Newman remains to be seen. Especially in light of the rumors that Mariah may be Sharon’s biological daughter, Cassie’s identical twin. And if Mariah is Cassie’s identical twin, what part does Ian Ward play in their separation?
