The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Why Is Paul Williams’ Name Continually Mentioned?

Many of Doug Davidson’s fans have noticed that his name keeps popping up during many different The Young and the Restless episodes, prompting many to wonder if the writers are looking to bring the character back. When one Twitter user asked Doug if he had retired, he clarified that was not the case. In the same comment thread, some fans noticed that Paul’s name this week even though it’s been a very long time since he was last on the show. Some comments from concerned fans have included, “I’m confused.  I stopped watching the show everyday for several reasons but my Mom watches religiously.  I walked by her door the other day and heard your name.  I got excited because I knew they woke up and are bringing you back!  Now I find out the claim you retired? I’m angry!” along with, “The show is suffering without Paul. They keep mentioning his name. Why? I really don’t understand why?”

Another fan wrote, “Seriously? After all your posts, how can anyone think you chose to leave?? You were actually mentioned yesterday, by Chance. Talked of memories of Paul! IF asked at this point; would you go back for Rey’s funeral service?”

I wish that they would bring Paul back. It’s going to be to much for Chance to handle everything by himself now that Reys gone, since he’s just come back to the force and he is dealing with PTSD.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
