Harrison Locke on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS was previously only seen in a picture on his mom’s phone, but that’s all about to change! The little boy will make his debut in the May 14 episode of Y&R, with adorable soap newcomer Kellen Enriquez making his debut as Tara and Ashland’s son — well, technically Tara and Kyle’s son!
The sweet little boy — look at those adorable curls! — had certainly been a hot topic of conversation even before he arrived in Genoa City in the flesh. Harrison’s mom, Tara Locke, was the married woman with whom Kyle Abbott had an affair while he was living in New York City. At first, Kyle wasn’t aware that his former fling had a child, but after seeing photos of the tyke, he was pretty sure that the little boy was his. Especially since Kyle knew Tara hadn’t been intimate with her husband, Ashland Locke, during the time that they were together! Tara begged Kyle to drop his questions about her little boy — but eventually did confess to her ex that he was, in fact, Harrison’s biological dad!
The situation got messier, of course, when Tara accompanied her husband to Genoa City while Ashland worked on a business deal with Victor Newman. Shortly after their arrival from New York, Tara admitted to Kyle that her husband likely knew about their affair and was probably why Ashland was attacking Jabot. With the Lockes in town, Kyle filled in fiancee Summer Newman on the truth about his affair with Tara, and that Harrison was his son. Fortunately for Tara and Kyle, Ashland had a heart attack before he could do any real damage to either of their reputations. Tara left Genoa City in late April to go back home to Harrison while Ashland recovered from getting a pacemaker. As a parting gift to Kyle, Tara sent him a photo of their son and revealed that “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” was Harrison’s favorite lullaby.
Stay tuned to find out why Tara is back in town with Harrison in tow — and how Kyle’s secret could blow up in his face! (Because it surely will!)
