Victor’s (Eric Braeden) family is treating him like a low down dirty scoundrel on ‘The Young and the Restless’. In retrospect his choice to recruit Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) was wrong. But why are they denying him a chance at redemption? And no, citing past instances of having done so isn’t the only answer to that question.

Actually, Victor’s actions regarding Chloe were obviously terrible at the time he made them. However, Y&R viewers currently find themselves wondering why Queen Nicole Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), Lord Nicholas (Joshua Morrow) and Princess Victoria (Amelia Heinle) have responded so strongly to this latest revelation about Victor’s behavior.
Nikki never despised Adam (Justin Hartley), but she also wasn’t his champion. Nick detested his only brother until Adam asked him to look out for Connor (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen). He died shortly thereafter. And Vickie was never close with her second brother. So why do they suddenly care that Victor brought Chloe back to town?
The point in that last sentence also raises another issue; Victor didn’t blow up the cabin himself. Instead, he had helped Adam to escape from prison and was orchestrating his exit from Genoa City. Nikki, Nick and Victoria never got to hear Adam’s side of the story.
If this condescending trio were present when Adam and Victor had their last conversation, which took place in the cabin, their collective viewpoint would likely be different. Both men made peace with each other for all acts that had been committed.
Nikki’s success in persuading Nick and Victoria to divorce themselves from Victor has come at a time when he needs his family’s help and guidance. And this comes at a time when Victor has demonstrated that he’s willing to accept help.
Chloe remains on the loose and her capture will bring peace of mind to many connected parties. But rather than focus on the true source of current problems, they’re beating Victor’s psyche with a metal-tipped stick.
Victor always manages to overcome all obstacles. When that happens this time his wife, first-born son and first-born daughter will have no legitimate excuse to offer to the man who’s given them so much.
Yes, it was completely fair for all three people to be shocked and sickened by Victor’s acknowledgment that he’d helped Chloe exact revenge against Adam. But Nikki, Nick and Victoria chose to cross the same type of moral line that they believe Victor did. Like him, they also can’t step back.
