‘The Young and the Restless’: What’s Next for Sally After Her and Tara’s Scheme Is Exposed?

Whether she’s on The Young and the Restless or The Bold and the Beautiful, Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) can’t stay out of trouble.

Sally Spectra’s scheming continues on ‘The Young and the Restless’

The Bold and the Beautiful turns Sally from a beloved heroine into a vixen. Sally’s scheming began when she tricked Wyatt into believing she was dying so he’d stay with her. Her plan hit a snag when Wyatt’s girlfriend Flo Fulton (Katrina Bowden) threatened to expose her. Sally then resorted to kidnapping Flo to keep her scheme going. However, eventually, Sally’s misdeeds were discovered. After giving a heartfelt apology to Wyatt, he agreed not to press charges, and Sally left town.

Sally’s arrival on The Young and the Restless was met with excitement. Although fans were hoping for a character transformation, the writers continued having Sally be a bad girl. She quickly set about wooing her boss Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman), who she used to move up the corporate ladder.

She also gained enemies with Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford). With the mother, daughter duo meddling in her affairs, Sally decided to get revenge. Her latest scheme involved teaming with Kyle Abbott’s (Michael Mealor) ex-girlfriend Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner). Sally and Tara succeeded in their plot to break up Kyle and Summer.

It looks like no violence will occur, but Phyllis will feel a sense of pride in bringing them down. With the help of Phyllis, Kyle and Summer will be reunited while Tara is hauled off in handcuffs. As for Sally, her fate is unknown.
