Y&R History

Year in Review 1995 by Christopher Lawrence Menard

A Twisted Web Woven By Matt Clark

In early 1995, while on a date with Sharon, Matt Clark trapped her in his car and raped her. In the process he tore an expensive coat that Nick had anonymously given to her as a gift. When a nonchalant Matt suggested that Sharon would enjoy herself more the next time they got together, Sharon warned him to keep away from her. Later, Sharon's friends and family were confused by her sudden withdrawal, but Sharon was too ashamed to confide in them what had happened.

When Amy Wilson became involved with Matt, Sharon warned her to be careful, and finally revealed that Matt had raped her. Matt, however, convinced Amy that Sharon had lied out of jealousy. Soon after, Nick and Sharon resumed their relationship. Angry with Sharon for this rejection, a vengeful Matt, with his buddy Drake's help, discovered that Sharon had earlier given birth to a baby boy and had given the baby up for adoption. Matt planed to use this information against Sharon. But when Sharon realized that Matt knew her shameful secret, she decided to confess everything to Nick. Before she could tell him, however, Nick proposed marriage and she accepted.

Matt then wrote a letter, anonymously, and sent it to Nick, detailing the truth of Sharon’s past. When Nick read it, and learned that Sharon had had a baby that she had given up for adoption, she assumed that he was no longer interested in her. She returned his engagement ring. But Nick made it clear that he loved her and they made plans to elope. That night, Sharon revealed to Nick that Matt had raped her. Angry, Nick left to confront Matt. Earlier that same evening, Amy had broken off her romance with Matt. Amy left to spend the summer in St. Louis. Nick arrived at Matt's to discover Matt lying unconscious on the floor with a bullet wound. The police arrived and arrested Nick for attempted murder. When Matt regained consciousness, he told the police that Nick had tried to kill him. Determined to save his son, Victor Newman asked Paul and Chris to do everything possible to prove Nick's innocence. And as Nick's trial began, he and Sharon secretly eloped.

Not long after this, Amy resurfaced in a shelter for battered women. She appeared to be deeply disturbed and catatonic. After an exhaustive search campaign, Victor, Paul and Chris located her at the shelter in Chicago. Chris persuaded Amy to return to Genoa City, where Victor paid for her stay at a Sanitarium, believing she had information that could somehow help save his son.

Secrets Rip Jack & Ashley To Shreds

When Blade witnessed an innocent embrace between Ashley and Brad, he suggested to Ashley that they take a romantic vacation. Jack also arranged a Caribbean getaway for himself and Luan, but when a jealous Mari Jo caught wind of their plans, she planted doubt in Luan's mind about Jack's true feelings for her. Mari Jo then followed Jack to the Caribbean. Blade and Ashley were also vacationing on the same island, with Brad trailing them. When Ashley and Brad saw Mari Jo with Blade's identical twin brother, Rick, they assumed that Blade was having an affair with her. Jack, however, made it clear to Mari Jo that he was in love with Luan, and headed back to Genoa City. As Blade got ready to head home, Rick revealed he was still alive, knocked Blade unconscious and held his twin prisoner in a cage. When Blade regained consciousness, Rick bid him farewell and left to assume his brother's identity.

Back in Genoa City, Jack assured Luan that he loved her, and suggested they marry. Luan had been ill, but she kept this a secret from Jack. Ironically, Jack inadvertently discovered that Luan was suffering from a terminal illness. He resolved to keep his knowledge of her medical condition a secret so that her remaining months with him would be happy. Meanwhile, Luan's son, Keemo, became romantically involved with Mari Jo. Keemo quickly tired of Mari Jo's mind-games and broke up with her after she hired a prostitute to impersonate her in bed, rather than have sex with him herself.

Rick was so successful at his masquerade that, as Blade, he was able to make love to Ashley. But a crafty Mari Jo caught onto Rick's scheme and confronted him. However, Blade managed to free himself and returned to Genoa City. Blade agreed not to press criminal charges, provided that Rick leave town. With Rick out of the way, Blade focused his attention on his marriage to Ashley. He was then devastated when Ashley admitted that his lovemaking over the last little while had been phenomenal, but had suddenly returned to the lacklustre way it had seemed in the past.

Rick returned, determined to get revenge against Blade. Mari Jo tried to keep the two brothers apart. However, when Blade learned that Rick was in his home, about to make love to Ashley once again, he rushed across town to protect Ashley from Rick, and was killed in a car wreck. At the funeral, Rick introduced himself to Ashley. Mari Jo confided to Jill Abbott that Rick had posed as Blade for several months, and Jill broke this news to Ashley. Devastated, a grieving Ashley blasted Rick in a dramatic confrontation, and relocated to Paris, hoping to rebuild her shattered life.
