Chelsea Lawson poisoned Rey Rosales

Chelsea and Rey’s potential romance will be shocking to The Young and the Restless fans. Last year, Rey almost lost his life due to Chelsea. Angry over Adam and Sharon, Chelsea decided to get back at the couple. She poisoned Rey and framed Adam for the crime, yet Chelsea’s plot was later exposed by Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).

Chelsea managed to escape prison time by faking a nervous breakdown. After a brief stay in Fairview, Chelsea was released and returned to her everyday life. When Chelsea and Connor Newman (Judah Mackey) left to visit Anita Lawson (Catherine Bach), Rey accompanied them on the trip.

Chelsea and Rey bonded on their trip, and it seems all is forgiving. The two have been chummy lately, and Rey even invited Chelsa to join him and Sharon during their anniversary dinner. While Chelsea and Rey’s bond may only be friendship, fans believe it’ll turn into much more.

Drama from the potential romance

Chelsea and Rey would create a massive stir on The Young and the Restless. Rey is a straight-laced cop, while Chelsea is a reformed con artist, so their opposites-attract romance would be enjoyable. Plus, there will be lots of fallout from their affair.
