The secret is out, Kelly knows that Jack is planning to marry Phyllis, according to She Knows Soaps on Nov. 22. And, she is not happy about Jack lying to her. If that’s not bad enough, her brother, Ben revealed that not only did he take the fall for their mother killing their father, but their father was an abusive man. It wasn’t her day; she looked like she was about to fall apart.
Jack told Phyllis he had a meeting he couldn’t cancel. Phyllis was upset because she had planned a family meeting to announce their engagement. He told Phyllis announcing their engagement was premature. Summer had plans at the Newman ranch. Phyllis felt like everyone was trying to get out of her party. She decided to go find Jack, even after Ashley and Traci had told her they could stay and catch up on lost time.
She arrived at Jabot and nearly ruined a make out session between Hilary and Devon. She announces she will be coming back to Jabot soon. She introduces herself to Hilary. She asks where Jack’s meeting is being held. Hilary is confused; Jack doesn’t have a meeting at Jabot. She tells Phyllis maybe he is at the club.
Meanwhile at the club, Jack talks to Kelly. She asks him if he told Phyllis he was leaving her. He tells her that Phyllis found her engagement ring. He goes on to tell her how he had lost all hope that Phyllis would recover, and that is when he fell in love with her. He tells her, “I belong with Phyllis, I always have.” Kelly tells him, “I can wait for you, as long as it takes. I know you love me.” Phyllis arrives at the club and sits next to Jack.
She says, “Did Jack tell you the big news?” Kelly and Jack both are scared what Phyllis is going to reveal. She says proudly, “We are getting married, and we want you to plan the wedding. I hear you are the best party planner.” Kelly is shocked. She isn’t sure if she should be angry or say congratulations to them.
If that is not bad enough, Ben shows up to deliver more bad news to her. He reveals that he never killed their father; Maureen did. Maureen left a note in her hotel room telling him to tell Kelly the truth. He told her she was missing. He tells her he took the fall for Maureen because they thought he’d get a lighter sentence being a minor. He said he gave his life so she’d never have to pay for her crime. She asked, “Why would she kill dad?” He reveals that their father was abusive to her. And, Maureen wanted to protect her from it, so she never told her anything. Kelly cried, “She never told me anything, I swear.”
How will Kelly react to all the news of the day? First she finds out that Jack is moving on with Phyllis, and then her mother is missing and killed her father. Not only that, she finds out her father abused her mother. As you can imagine, Kelly must feel pretty overwhelmed. Is she going to give up on Jack? Will she search for Maureen? Where is Maureen? Watch it all unfold weekdays on “the Young and the Restless” airing on CBS.
