Longtime viewers of The Young and The Restless will recall that Stitch married Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) in 2015 but left town in 2017 after she suffered a miscarriage thanks to the prank of his son Max Rayburn (Jared Breeze).

Max had been resentful of his new stepmother, and when Stitch told Max that Abby was pregnant he fantasized about pushing Abby down the stairs.
After a talk with Stitch, Max had a sudden change of heart and then suggested they throw Abby a surprise baby shower, but he was faking.
