The mysterious lawyer talked about her fiancé, whom she once thought as her soulmate. But as time passed, he became more controlling and she eventually filed a restraining order against him. The name Ripley Turner was dropped on the show and fans knew that he’s bound to appear on Genoa City sooner or later, and that’s exactly what’s about to happen.
Although Amanda seems to know where Ripley is all the time because of the tracker she has on him, he could easily rig it to fool her that she’s somewhere else when in fact, he’s already on his way to Genoa City. Plus, “The Young and the Restless” hint that chaos is brewing, so there’s a big chance that Ripley could be one of the reasons behind the impending trouble.
Keyes is scheduled to appear on the soap as Amanda’s abusive ex-fiancé starting February 5. But, his airdate could be moved further because of the ongoing impeachment trial coverage.
