Chance’s PTSD and the custody battle with Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) is creating tension for the couple. As soap opera fans know when a couple experiences problems, usually one of the spouse’s strays. Chance is in a vulnerable state and has been confiding in Chelsea. However, that comfort may lead to him and Chelsea developing feelings for each other.

Their affair would create a lot of drama

Most of The Young and the Restless fans would love Chelsea and Chance to be a couple. The fallout from their affair would be explosive. Of course Abby and Chance’s marriage will be affected, and they will divorce. Also, Chance’s friendship with Adam will be shattered.

Speaking of Adam, Chelsea’s hope of reunion with her ex-husband will be dashed by her affair. Chelsea’s been fighting Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) for Adam’s affections ever since her return. Yet, her mistake will cost her Adam and send him straight into Sally’s waiting arms.
