Ins & Outs
Time flies when you’re having fun. As Greg Rikaart wraps up his two-week comeback to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, fans can’t help but wonder: Is this really the end of Kevin?
The In Depth Story: Y& R viewers were delighted by the actor’s return when Kevin was summoned by Victor himself to do a bit of computer hacking. But, as all good things must come to an end, so is Kevin’s comeback. He’ll soon be jetting back to Washington, where the supposedly- dead Chloe and their daughter, Bella, await him, and viewers will be left to ponder whether Kevin and his portrayer will return again. The Daytime Emmy winner was let go back in the spring when Y&R decided not to renew Rikaart’s contract after 14 years, so his comeback just a few months after his July exit was surprising, to say the least. The actor was scheduled to ap-
pear in a handful of episodes spread out over a two- week period… but considering that he originally only booked a twoweek gig back in 2003, fans had been hopeful that this short visit would be extended, too.
If Rikaar t’s cur rent schedule is any indication, he does seem to have the time to return to the sudser. When a Twitter follower asked what he’s been up to since his Y&R exit, he jokingly replied that he had been “expanding my horizons and cultivating numerous job opportunities” — in other words, “I’ve been going to Target.”
So while the soap won’t divulge future storyline, fans can always hope that Rikaart’s brief return this month might one day lead to more Genoa City hacking jobs for Kevin, or perhaps he’ll even come home for a holiday or two… and a Tar- jay run with his mom, Gloria!
Kevin’s return may have laid the groundwork for more Genoa City visits.
