Young and the Restless fans know Mattie and Reed have been spending some serious time together lately, and there might be something there. It’s been keeping both of them kind of busy and preoccupied the past few weeks, but not so much that Mattie hasn’t noticed that her dad is very upset. She’s going to ask him about it and tell him that she suspects there is something else going on, and he is going to lie to her. He can’t just figure out that right now lying is the worst thing he can do and he must be honest with his family.
He’s not in a good place, and lying to his daughter is even worse than lying to his wife. She’s not going to be satisfied with his answer. She might even be more upset that he realizes she will be if he took the time to realize who she’s been spending so much time with. He hates Billy and might not want his daughter near his son, but he also respects Victoria and might be all right with that. Either way, he’s not focused enough on his family.
This is a rookie mistake that might cost him more than he is willing to pay, and he might not be happy when he realizes just how much this is going to cost him. He has a lot to answer to at the moment, and we need to know how many people he might alienate fist. He should have told the truth.
