As Young & Restless Fans Fear Elena Is Leaving Town, Brytni Sarpy *May* Have Revealed Her Character’s Fate
Will one of the men in the heroine’s life wake up and take action before it’s too late?
What’s a girl gotta do to find a little happiness in Genoa City? The Young and the Restless’ Elena Dawson would seem to have it all. She’s gorgeous, sweet, smart, funny… and yet she can’t catch a break in the romance department.
Which might explain why she’s considering leaving town.
After telling Nate that she’d gotten a job offer in Baltimore, Elena asked one very important question at the end of the episode airing June 8: “Can you think of any reason I should turn it down?” But in true soap cliffhanger style, we’re still waiting to hear what he says!

More than a few fans have speculated that Sarpy may be on her way out, based partially on the fact that she can currently be seen on the primetime sudser The Haves and the Have Nots. (Our sister site TVLine recapped the latest episode here.) What many don’t realize is that taping of that show’s final season wrapped over a year ago!

But even as Young & Restless viewers have been dreading the idea of losing both Elena and her portrayer, Sarpy may have given them a bit of hope: While she hasn’t directly addressed the issue, she did retweet a fan when they reassured the audience that “Dr. Dawson is not going anywhere.”

When another follower asked how Nate would respond to Elena’s question, Sarpy’s reply was exactly the kind of tease you’d expect from a soap star.

Not soon enough for many fans, however, as we hear Elena and Nate’s conversation will not be picked up in the episode airing on Wednesday, June 9. While we wait to find out not only what Nate says but how it impacts Elena’s decision regarding the future, why not share your thoughts about the storyline in the comments section below? Then join us in revisiting the romance of Elena and Devon (who just happens to be played by Sarpy’s real-life love, Bryton James) in the gallery below?
<p>When Devon learned that half sister Ana was paying for dad Jett’s medical bills, he insisted that the ailing musician move into the penthouse that seemed so big and empty since wife Hilary’s tragic demise. Oh, and why didn’t he go ahead and bring along his doctor, Elena, too? Yeah, <em>that</em> would be cozy!</p>
<p>While Devon and Elena got to know one another — and liked each other the more they did — he began seeing visions of his late bride, Hilary. But, whether his subconscious was ready to move on, his lips were: Upon being awakened from a dream, the teary-eyed widower mistook his beautiful houseguest for Hilary and kissed her!</p>
<p>When Jett embarked on a comeback tour with Ana in tow, Devon opened his heart to Elena to keep her from closing her suitcase and leaving. Unfortunately, in no time, they hit a rough patch: Upon finding out that he’d paid off her student loans, she hit the roof when really a thank-you note would’ve sufficed.</p>
<p>Only after Elena staged an intervention on behalf of the man with whom she was falling in love did Devon confess to the difficulty that he was having letting go of Hilary. Finally, he found the strength to rip off the Band-Aid, got rid of his wife’s belongings… and moved Elena into his bedroom for good.</p>
<p>New questions about the validity of grandmother Katherine’s will became the least of Devon’s concerns when he got a gander at the attorney in charge of the whole mess: Amanda was a dead ringer for Hilary. Well, a <em>live</em> dead ringer!</p>
<p>As their romance intensified, Devon and Elena teamed up to provide low-cost medical care to the residents of New Hope. (Good karma never hurts when you’re getting serious with someone.) But Amanda was still around and proving to be not <em>so</em> bad after all. And Elena was working awfully closely with the conspicuously handsome Nate…</p>
<p>Having ultimately forgiven Amanda for her role in almost costing him billions, Devon asked her to provide legal aid to the clinic. Which was all well and good if they remained just friends. But anyone with eyes — and Elena has two — would have to wonder if when he looked at the attorney, he saw the one who got away… at least in appearance, returned to him.</p>
<p>The discovery that Amanda is, in fact, the twin sister that Hilary had never known she had only further bonded her with Devon. He never performed an experiment to see if she not only looked and sounded like his late wife but kissed like her, too, yet Elena panicked.</p>
<p>Fearful that she was losing Devon to Amanda, Elena acted on the attraction that had been simmering just beneath the surface between her and Nate. She immediately regretted doing so, of course. But it was already too late. She’d done the kind of damage that gauze and stitches just can’t repair.</p>
