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.
