Soap World - - DAYTIME Y&R - SW

As Sharon blames Vic­tor (Eric Brae­den) for her mis­ery and erases all trace of Mariah from the house, Mariah seeks help from Ian and agrees to a covert meet­ing with him un­aware that Nick is in Madi­son, black­mail­ing Sharon’s for­mer ob­ste­tri­cian into spilling the sor­did de­tails of Cassie’s birth to him.

Nick is shell-shocked to learn that He­len Copeland tried black­mail­ing him into giv­ing a new­born Cassie to her for a child­less friend be­fore the un­ex­pected birth of Cassie’s twin sis­ter pro­vided He­len with the child she needed!

When the doc­tor ad­mits to drug­ging Sharon so heav­ily that she never knew about the twin and that he hap­pily sanc­tioned the il­le­gal adop­tion of this baby, Nick has him ar­rested.

Gath­er­ing his com­po­sure, Nick races home to drop the bomb­shell on Sharon that she’s Mariah’s mother, and although she strug­gles to com­pre­hend the thought of hav­ing twins, Sharon must ac­cept the hor­ror of the sit­u­a­tion when Nick fran­ti­cally re­veals that He­len stole Mariah to give Ian Ward the child that he craved!

As Sharon cries that she’s thrown Mariah out for try­ing to se­duce Nick and that they have to find her, Ian ma­nip­u­lates Mariah into leav­ing the Ath­letic Club with him. Although she trusts her fa­ther fig­ure, Mariah is soon hor­ri­fied to find her­self im­pris­oned in­side a stor­age unit with Ian as her cap­tor.

Mariah is help­less as Ian drugs her and dresses her in a wed­ding dress and veil. Star­ing las­civ­i­ously at the un­con­scious girl, Ian con­tacts Sharon, de­mand­ing a mil­lion dol­lars for ev­ery year of Mariah’s life, in­clud­ing an im­me­di­ate up­front pay­ment of $5 mil­lion oth­er­wise she’ll never see her new­found daugh­ter alive again!

While Sharon works with the po­lice to flush out Ian, he sum­mons his hench­man Clarence (J. Down­ing), an­nounc­ing to a re­vived Mariah that Clarence is go­ing to marry them. Pet­ri­fied at the sight of her­self in a wed­ding dress, Mariah freaks out as Ian in­tones that their for­tunes are en­twined and although Mariah rages through­out the cer­e­mony that Ian is like her fa­ther and that their mar­riage feels in­ces­tu­ous, they’re soon pro­nounced hus­band and wife.

Warn­ing Mariah not to di­verge from the Cho­sen Path, Ian sub­mits her to Clarence’s mercy, leav­ing a ter­ri­fied Mariah in no doubt that Ian wants Clarence to im­preg­nate her into giv­ing Ian a new dis­ci­ple.
