The Young and the Restless (Y&R) rumors suggest that JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) could be alive and working with Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni). This wild speculation could explain how Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) will walk away from the storyline without serving any jail time. Here’s everything we know about this never-ending storyline.
Could JT Be Alive?
The writers want you to believe that JT is not alive and someone is driving Nikki crazy. For a while, many fans believed it too. In fact, some fans thought that Nikki may have been unknowingly harassing herself. I am not sure how that would work, but it could happen I suppose. However, that is not what is going on here.
JT was hit over the head and that supposedly killed him. Many Y&R fans are in disbelief that would kill anyway. It may knock them out, yes, but kill them, eh, probably not. So, that brought the newest wild rumor to play. Is it possible that JT survived the hit bump? If so, who has been helping him all this time?

Is Phyllis Behind It All?
Phyllis hates Victor (Eric Braeden) more than anything. It isn’t outside the possibility that she would want to frame him for JT’s murder. Genoa City witnessed Victor threaten to kill JT on TV. Victor is the perfect scapegoat and it would be easy to frame him for the murder.
Let’s assume, Phyllis found a way to dig up JT’s body, saves his life, and brings him into her dangerous game of revenge against Victor. It’s clear that JT would be on board. It would make sense that he or Phyllis is the one harassing Nikki.
The Y&R fans remain divided. They cannot decide if JT is alive or dead. Do you think Phyllis and JT are working together? Do you think JT is alive? Don’t forget to come back for more The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers, news, and casting updates!
