Dr. Benjamin "Stitch" Rayburn, M.D. is a fictional character on The Young and the Restless. He is portrayed by Sean Carrigan who debuted on June 28, 2013.
Stitch arrived in Genoa City as an old army buddy of Dylan McAvoy. He served as a medic in the squad with Dylan, which is where he got the nickname "Stitch." He met up with Dylan after Dylan contacted him about being the best man at his wedding. While in town, Stitch met Dylan's first love, Avery Clark, someone whom he remembered Dylan talking about when they were deployed. He also met Dylan's fiancee, Chelsea Lawson, whom they both believed was pregnant with Dylan's child. Stitch talked with Dylan and Chelsea and showed them pictures of his son, before leaving town. Stitch returned to town a couple weeks later to help Dylan renovate a warehouse that he was turning into a home and they talked about their lives and families before Stitch went back home to be with his. On August 9, Stitch came back to town to serve as Dylan's best man at his wedding to Chelsea. His most recent return came after Avery contacted him to come to town and help Dylan who suffered a PTSD episode after finding out that Connor McAvoy is not his biological son. Dylan thought he was back in a war zone and kidnapped Connor to keep him safe, but Avery was able to talk him down and the baby was returned to his parents. Stitch arrived in town the day after the incident and met Dylan at the hospital. He stayed as moral support for Dylan who was seeking help from a psychiatrist for his PTSD.
Move to Genoa CityEdit
Stitch stays in town and moves in with Dylan, after he completes medical school and gets a job at Genoa City Memorial Hospital. He tells Dylan that his wife Jenna and son Max will be joining him in Genoa City once he gets settled. Stitch supports Dylan as he works to get his life back together after the fallout of Chelsea's lie is exposed. While working at the hospital, he meets and befriends Ashley Abbott and Nikki Newman on two different occasions. Ashley's daughter Abby Newman attempted to play matchmaker between Stitch and Ashley, which causes a bit of embarrassment for Ashley, but they both kept it cordial. Nikki invited Dylan and Stitch to her Veteran's Day celebration, which both attended. His new friendship with Nikki was followed by the revelation that Nikki is his buddy Dylan's biological mother. Later, Stitch is seen upset and drinking at The Underground on a few different occasions, but it is not revealed why.
Stitch befriends Dylan's half-sister, Victoria Newman after the news of her new-found relationship to Dylan broke. He encountered Victoria and her son, Johnny Abbott at Crimson Lights. He overheard Victoria noticing a rash on Johnny's neck and was there to help treat the little boy. He examined Johnny and realized he was having an allergic reaction to the coat he was wearing. He got some antihistamine for Johnny and then removed the coat. The rash went away and Victoria was very grateful. Stitch and Victoria had some more run-ins at the coffee shop where they discussed Dylan and Victoria's new kinship, and the problems Victoria has had connecting with her husband, Billy Abbott since the death of Billy's daughter, Delia. Stitch provided a comforting and friendly ear for Victoria.
One day after talking with Victoria at the coffee shop, he runs into Kelly Andrews and it's revealed they know each other and have a sort of hostile past. Stitch and Kelly agree to stay out of each other's way. Later, he realizes Victoria left her phone at Crimson Lights and he goes to Billy and Victoria's House to return it. While returning the phone, Victoria and Billy invite Stitch to stay for dinner, also noting that they had invited a fourth to dinner. That fourth person turned out to be Kelly. At the dinner Billy and Stitch talked about Johnny, Delia and if Stitch had any children. Stitch told Billy that he has a son, Max, that he missed. He admitted that he didn't see Max as much, because he and his wife are now separated because of something he did, and the separation is not something that he likes to talk about.
