2018 Year In Review
Jack’s Life Was Turned Completely Upside-Down!
Jack and Ashley engaged in their very own GAME OF THRONES, with her ousting her sibling at Jabot with the help of Kyle’s proxy vote! Yet before she could sit in the CEO chair, Jack revealed that he’d inserted a blood-Abbott clause into the company’s bylaws which disqualified her for the top slot! Despite their animosity, Jack and Ashley united to fight Graham for custody of Dina, who’d slipped further into the fog of Alzheimer’s. Graham’s attempt to kill Dina (and frame Ashley) went awry when instead, he wound up dead! For a nanosecond, Ashley was charged with his murder before being exonerated. After Victor hired Ashley at Newman, Jack and Victoria worked together to frame Ash for corporate espionage. It worked, with Victor firing his ex. Ashley threatened to sue, and The Mustache realized that he’d been duped. In response, Victor rehired Ashley and demoted his own daughter! Kyle aligned himself with Victor. As if that wasn’t shocking enough, Jack then found out he wasn’t actually John Abbott’s son! The revelation launched Jack on a quest to find his biological father, with potential pops including Phillip Chancellor and Albert Miller — Victor’s dad! Eventually, Ashley admitted the whole paternity scandal was a ruse she’d cooked up to punish Jack for the crappy way he’d treated her. On the outs from her clan, Ashley left town. But she wasn’t empty-handed — she took all the patents she’d developed at Jabot, leaving the company in a shaky position!
For people in the beauty biz, things got real ugly between Jack and Ashley!
