Characters of the Past: Y&R's Mason Wilder!

Characters of the past. Y&R fans do you remember Mason Wider? Read more here--->>>

No good deed goes unpunished. Sarge (who was Jack Abbott’s physical therapist who helped Jack walk again after he was left paralyzed from being shot by Patty-Cakes) called in a favor once Jack got back on his feet (literally) and got his nephew, Mason Wilder (Lamon Archey), a job as Jack’s assistant at Newman Enterprises (no typo smiling Jack was running NE at that time).

Not a bad gig wouldn’t you say? Well, Mason would. Mason was doing more than answering phones, sorting mail and keeping Jack’s calendar. He was paying very close attention to everyone and everything, soaked it in like a sponge. It didn’t take him long for him to figure out that despite his uncle’s good intentions, Mason might be backing the wrong ‘horse’. Mason figured it wouldn’t be long before Victor Newman was back in the big chair staring lovingly at his own picture on the office wall (yep Mason correctly surmised the writers always let Victor win lol) and Mason would be left out in the cold.

Mason took it upon himself to reach out to Victor (pretty bold move). When they met, Mason informs Victor that he has a MBA and has higher aspirations. Mason again had been observant and knew what buttons to press. He told Victor that he (meaning Victor) was a self-made man and hadn’t been handed everything to him by his daddy like Jack. He knew who was going to come out on top and he wanted to be on the winner’s side.

In our soap minds, Victor sized him up right quick and decided this young man might have potential. He told Mason as long as he was his good solider (his mole at NE) and did what he was told, he’d make sure there was a place for him at NE when Victor was back.

Mason must have really been proud of himself and gave himself a big pat on the back. But ‘MBA Mason’ wasn’t as smart as he thought and really just out of his league, poor guy. He hadn’t read the fine print. Victor being Victor had higher, much higher aspirations as well.  Mason would be more than putting a glass on a door to eavesdrop. This was Victor Newman. It wouldn’t be long before he upped the ante.

Jack had become addicted to pain pills while recovering from being shot.  During one of his bender’s, he met prostitute/daughter of Congressman Marcus Wheeler, Stephanie Gayle (hired by Victor to seduce Jack). Stephanie and Jack’s wild night ended with Stephanie dead (combination of ecstasy and alcohol) at the Abbott mansion. This with the realization that he needed help for his addiction, caused Jack to step down from NE. Jack appointed both Adam Newnan and Billy Abbott as co CEO’s. But you know Adam, he got himself voted sole CEO and kicked Billy to the curb. He was running NE with Sharon Newman by his side.

Oooooh, Victor wasn’t having none of that. He summoned Mason, handed him a bottle of placebo pills and ‘ordered’ him to replace those with Sharon’s medication for her bi-polar disorder. Mason quickly realized the stakes were a little higher than he bargained for. But that cash Victor was offering…he took the money and the placebos.

Mason ultimately realized he wasn’t cut from the same cloth as Victor.  The mixture of bad timing and remorse caused Mason not to switch the pills.  Eventually Adam saw Mason and Victor talking, figured out what was going on and fired Mason. Jack who was back at Jabot by then, still loyal to Sarge, hired Mason at Jabot and Mason was off-screen.

A real surprise has been a rare jewel in soap land with spoilers, scoops, cell phones and social media. But thankfully we can still ‘be blessed’ with one from time to time. And we were, when Mason resurfaced this time as Hillary Curtis’ partner in crime in her quest to take down/torment Neil Winters and the Winters family (she blamed Neil for her mother’s death). 

Mason’s main ‘job’ was to help Hillary by taking, editing, cropping and posting pictures of Hillary and Cane in positions not fit for a married man. Mason and Hillary weren’t just partners in crime , their little arrangement came with benefits. They were hot. Mason and Hillary had potential. No Shade to the Hevon Nation. 

To his credit, Mason did have moments of trying to convince Hillary to simply confront Neil rather than destroy him or just give up the vendetta entirely. But she didn’t and they stayed the course.
When Hillary was busted she had a ‘come to Jesus meeting’ and wanted to be a better person. Mason had been fired from another job ,Jabot, and had no interest in any of that. 

Devon had hit the inheritance jackpot (Katherine Chancellor and Jeanne Cooper #RIP) and became a billionaire overnight instantly becoming a target for the likes of someone like Mason. Mason befriended Devon (who was having a hard time adjusting to live as a billionaire. That’s hard to even type) and stole his credit card/wallet (he had billionaires after all he could afford it right?).

Mason didn’t just buy some coffee at Crimson Lights or splurge on a new outfit or two. Nope Mason, with his higher aspirations, took his identify theft on a road trip to The Strip in Las Vegas. He had a grand time trashing his hotel room in the process. Devon was arrested.

‘MBA Mason’ slipped up during a conversation with Devon about his arrest and Devon concluded Mason was the culprit. Devon was sure it was Mason but could he prove it?

The casino’s monitoring system wasn’t up to snuff. The pictures and video did show it wasn’t Devon so the casino agreed to drop the charges. But the pictures and video couldn’t prove it was Mason. Leslie wanted Devon to still tell the police. Devon disagreed. The video and the pictures couldn’t help, Mason had returned his wallet with everything in it and Devon couldn’t prove he had used his credit card number.  Plus, Devon had had enough bad publicity and he didn’t want the press to come after him for accusing someone with no real proof.

Devon wouldn’t press charges but he wanted Mason to sweat it out. Devon confronted Mason and told him the camera had caught him checking in under Devon’s name. Mason was like I’m sorry but it’s not like you need the money. When that less than Einstein defense didn’t work, Mason begged. Devon told Mason it was out of his hands and to get out his face.

That was the last we saw of Mason walking away with thoughts, is Orange the New Black??

In the end, ‘MBA Mason’ got away scot-free so maybe he was pretty smart after all.

Side note; Mason’s doppelganger is hanging out in Salem, USA these days.
