Did The Young and the Restless Wait Too Long For Its Baby Switch Reveal?


Stacy Haiduk, Sharon Case

Sharon's (Sharon Case) cuckoo bird, a.k.a. Patty Williams (Stacy Haiduk), has come home to roost on The Young and the Restless. The CBS Daytime soap opera is finally poised to reveal Baby Sully's true identity. With both the tot's biological mother and father dead, will the all-but-forgotten plot twist even matter?

Patty has been sending creepy birthday gifts and prank-calling Sharon about the Christian/Sully baby switch this week on Y&R.  It makes sense Sharon doesn't want hubby Dylan (Steve Burton) to learn he's once again on the receiving end of a paternity dupe. However, without Adam (Justin Hartley) or Sage (Kelly Sullivan) on the canvas to claim their son, I can't see much in the terms of dramatic payoff for this storyline. 

If fans want to see Dylan and/or Nick (Joshua Morrow) reacting to a paternity scam, they can just head over to YouTube. Before she was the merriest widow ever, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) conned Dylan into believing he was the father of her son Connor. For Nick's part, the Newman scion should still be reeling from Sharon tricking him into believing Summer (Hunter King) wasn't his "Super Girl" a year or so ago.
