We know that Victor (Eric Braeden) has returned on Christmas Eve on ‘The Young and the Restless’. But how will his presence impact the J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) case?
Hardcore Y&R fans know that the great Victor Newman has long been a force like no other. But recently he’s been knocked off his high horse on a number of occasions. Yes, that was a jab at Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) Dark Horse efforts.
As viewers recall, J.T. went at it with Victor at the Ranch last spring. The ‘Moustache’ was knocked unconscious by an epic backwards fall down the stairs, was hospitalized and later nearly died when J.T. pulled the plug on his ventilator. His accidental death, at Nikki’s (Melody Thomas Scott) hands came thereafter.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Victor Newman Could Change The Game
Later in the year, Nick, who was initially out to get J.T. to avenge his father’s attack, actually morphed into a visual version of Mr. Hellstrom. That plot point was a bit over the top, but served to further the Victor-Nick battle as Newman Enterprises was badly damaged.
Having been overseas on a business mission through the fall, Victor has recently thought to have been missing. The ever-mysterious man often has something up his sleeve. So, could he be the person who orchestrates Nikki’s removal from Genoa City Memorial Hospital, intending it to look like a kidnapping. Might that give Victor enough time to help his wife escape justice for what happened at Vickie’s house and then at Chancellor Park in mid-April?
Victor likely has learned through his sources that Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) suspects him of murdering J.T. It then becomes possible that Victor’s return is followed by him being arrested and jailed during the holidays.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Is J.T. Still Alive?
Could Victor have nabbed a still-alive J.T. while he’s been gone and is holding him hostage? Knowing that Luckinbill’s character has information that would send Nikki and possibly, each of the other coverup crew members to prison, the ‘Black Knight’ could be administering vigilante justice. That, along with other unnamed scenarios creates a compelling poll question for all readers.
