There are some characters so vile or annoying that fans can’t wait to see them go. They have a knack for ruining everyone’s happily ever after and leave heart attacks in their wake. Even though this description fits Theo Vanderway of The Young and the Restless perfectly, fans aren’t ready to see him go.
He’s making the Abbott family’s life miserable on Y&R, but fans are still cheering for him. He may not be the golden boy of the show, but he’s shaking things up in a good way. Now rumor has it Theo will be leaving soon, and his fans are less than pleased.
