Michael thinks he knows why he is defending Claire on The Young and the Restless. In the dimly lit room, shadows danced along the walls, casting an air of mystery over the figure seated on the worn leather couch.
Michael, renowned for his astute legal prowess and unwavering determination, sat with an air of contemplation, his mind a labyrinth of unspoken motives and hidden intentions.
Michael’s Quest Through Kevin’s Journey
Yes, the primary reason is that he gets paid by Victoria and Cole. That’s always a good reason. As whispers of intrigue swirled through the corridors of legal maneuvers and personal vendettas, Michael’s involvement in defending Claire remained an enigmatic puzzle.
The reasons he divulged were mere fragments of a complex mosaic, leaving behind the shroud of secrecy that enveloped his true motivations.
Michael also concurred with Claire when they met that crazy Aunt Jordan had done a lot of work on her. Michael acknowledged that it felt personal to Victor and said as much to Cole and Victoria.
Michael believes he understands Claire’s motivations. To find out why he was actually doing it, though, we put him down on the couch at Soap Hub. Michael believes he is standing up for Claire because he was given a second chance after committing some terrible crimes, and he believes Claire should too.
Michael’s stepfather was abusive, and Claire was raised by an abusive aunt, which is why he is doing this. He is taking this action because Michael’s mother, Gloria, was essentially useless and Claire had no one to protect her as a child.
Thus, there are numerous points of connection, all of which Michael believes he is fully aware of. He isn’t. Michael has not spoken about his younger brother Kevin at all during this. Kevin committed some heinous crimes as well. Kevin also got a second chance.
But Michael is not driven by that. Michael is driven by the fact that Kevin was raised by a dysfunctional mother and an abusive father.
Not to mention Michael, who, instead of saving Kevin, took off and never looked back. When Michael looks at Claire, he doesn’t see himself.
He sees Kevin. Kevin can help. Kevin can save. If Michael can make that road a bit shorter for Claire, Victoria, and Cole, then it will be worth it.
