Steven Lars Webber, M.D. may not have been fatally shish kabobed by his mama on General Hospital, but Scott Reeves' previous soap character, randy cosmetics exec Ryan McNeil, died at the altar on The Young and the Restless way back in 2001. Instead of Ryan being able to successfully re-marry heiress Victoria Newman (then Heather Tom), his unstable ex, Tricia Dennison (Sabryn Genet) busted a life-draining cap in that ass. That little factoid hasn't stopped chatter about Reeves potentially returning to Y&R, where his BFF Steve Burton now appears as Dylan McAvoy.
In the March 18 issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, Reeves responded to the magazine's inquiry about a possible Genoa City return trip, saying:
"I would definitely consider it."
Hmm...it would be a hard sell to explain why anyone would fake Ryan's death. I mean, the only enemies he stacked up during his decade or so in Genoa City were all the wives he cheated on!
I guess Victoria's (Amelia Heinle) nefarious daddy, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) coulda snatched Ryan up to prevent him from marrying his beloved daughter again? Or, perhaps Victor could hire a Ryan lookalike to bust up Victoria's marriage to Billy (Billy Miller)? Stranger things have happened on a soap!
Would you want to see Reeves return to The Young and the Restless as Ryan McNeil, or some new character all together? Sound off in the comments, but before you do, re-watch Tricia's nutty-as-a-fruitcake self ice Ry-Ry below!
