Dylan and Sharon earlier this year, when he was renovating her kitchen
When our lovely friend Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton) first showed up on our Y&R screens last January, there was strong speculation that she would be paired with Sharon Newman (Sharon Case). They met each other quite quickly, but their interactions were aborted suddenly when the writers chose to pair Dylan with Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan). After months of a messy baby paternity lie, Dylan is single and ready to mingle again. Some signs are pointing to him getting back together with his former lover Avery Bailey Clark (Jessica Collins), but Dylan has also been interacting with Sharon again. What's going on here?
First off, Dylan and Avery ("Davery") aren't very interesting. We know they are said to have all this history, but because none of that happened onscreen (except for some crummy flashbacks), it's hard for me to care about these two. Sharon, on the other hand, is mentally fragile and hung up on her former high school sweetheart Nick (Joshua Morrow). But I, among many other fans, can totally see the war veteran and daffy dame getting together! Considering Dylan is in fact the long lost son of Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), Nick's mother and Sharon's rival, it would thrust a new chapter into the Nikki/Sharon feud, as well as putting quite the frown on Nick's face! It would please me so much to see Nikki's face when she finds out the woman who supposedly ruined her family is shacking up with her newfound son!
While "Shylan" would be pleasing on so many levels, a lot of people are rooting for supercouple Nick and Sharon to get back together, specifically close to their 20th anniversary next year. I pledge that we could get the best of both worlds! Pair Dylan and Sharon now, driving Nikki and Nick up the wall, and eventually, Sharon will see that Nick wants her and reunite with him, just in time for their big anniversary. It would also create another love triangle with Dylan, Sharon and Nick. Perfect! Watch The Young and the Restless weekdays on CBS.
