There’s talk that a blast from the past might be coming back to The Young and The Restless. And fans are getting ready for the comeback of a character who once had the whole city hooked with his cult-like charm – Ian Ward, portrayed by Ray Wise. Recent revelations indicate that Nikki Newman is in for a harrowing experience. She’s slated to be attacked, drugged, and kidnapped on Y&R, with her life hanging in the balance.
The question looming large: Could her former stalker, Ian Ward, be the culprit? Fans are buzzing with wild theories about the bad guy possibly coming back. Even though it’s been almost ten years since Ian Ward caused trouble in Genoa City, fans strongly believe that Ray’s mean character is back. They think the attack on Nikki fits the cult leader’s style perfectly. So let’s delve in and find out what’s in store!
The Young And The Restless: Ian Ward’s Shocking Return
Back in 2014, Ian Ward made his debut on The Young and the Restless as a peculiar cult leader from Nikki’s adventurous past. Y&R spoilers initially suggested that Ian Ward was the father of Dylan McAvoy. But later they put the idea to rest when it was came out that he was unable to have children. Currently, Ian Ward is supposedly behind bars, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he hasn’t managed to escape once again. Maybe, he might be planning things from his prison cell.
The latest The Young And The Restless preview featured a perilous picture with Nikki acing an attack from her protege, Claire. Claire stabs Nikki in the neck with a syringe, making Nikki a prisoner in a secluded place. The person stalking the Newman Family through Claire and working with Aunt Jordan seems really interested in Victor’s wife. Because the Newmans have made a lot of enemies over the years, Ian Ward might be a possible suspect for Nikki’s attacker. But it could also be someone else from the long list of people they’ve angered.
The rumors going around in the Y&R community about Ian being involved in the attack might be true. Especially since the story seems to focus on Nikki. Ward enjoys messing with people’s lives, and having Claire infiltrate the family feels a lot like when he sent Mariah to “haunt” them as Cassie Newman. It’s possible that Ian Ward still has strange followers, which could be how he got Claire and Aunt Jordan involved in his latest evil scheme. What’s your take on this? Could Ian Ward be connected to Claire attacking Nikki? Share your thoughts in the comment section below and let us know what you feel.
