The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers for Monday, August 22, tease that Michael (Christian LeBlanc) will hope to help Adam (Justin Hartley) through his legal crisis. Adam is in hot water thanks to his recent hallucination. He thought Victor (Eric Braeden) was coming after him in his cell, but it was just a prison guard.
Adam tried to strangle the poor guy and now he could be facing up to 10 years for assault. The worst part is that Adam was about to get his freedom back. Victor finally came through for his son, but he did it just a little too late. Nevertheless, Michael will attempt to get Adam off the hook. He’ll urge Adam to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
Adam definitely wasn’t in his right mind at the time of the attack. Unfortunately, that’s partially his fault. Adam was refusing to eat and it made him weak. He also allowed his fears to get the best of him. Adam’s outlook was grim and that led to his downward spiral.
Of course, Adam won’t be able to prove he was hallucinating during the assault. A judge or jury may not buy that excuse. The Young and the Restless spoilers say Victor will worry that Michael is in over his head. He’ll eventually call Leslie (Angell Conwell) to represent Adam as he fights the new charges.
Y&R fans can expect Victor to make some sacrifices as this storyline moves along. Adam wouldn’t have attacked anyone if he hadn’t been in prison. Victor is responsible for putting Adam in such a dire situation. He’ll do everything in his power to get Adam out of this jam.
Meanwhile, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) will work on solving a different problem. She’s currently in Mexico with Travis (Michael Roark) and their discussion quickly turned into a romp in the sack. When Victoria and Travis saw each other, they knew they had to rekindle their love.
Travis will once again beg Victoria to come away with him. He wants Victoria right by his side as he travels the world. However, things are complicated for Victoria. She has children to think about and those children need their father. Billy (Jason Thompson) wouldn’t appreciate it if Victoria packed up the kids and left town.
Still, the idea of sailing with Travis will prove awfully tempting. Victoria may wonder if there’s a way to make this happen. Maybe Travis will come back to Genoa City if Victoria will at least think about his offer. That might be a good compromise for these passionate lovers.
Speaking of passionate lovers, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) and Billy will get together for a chat. These two are now former flames due to Jill’s (Jess Walton) meddling, but they may not be truly over. Then again, Billy also seems drawn to his ex lately. Once Billy hears that Victoria is off visiting Travis, a hint of jealousy may strike.
In other words, romance will continue to be quite complex on The Young and the Restless. We’ll give you updates as more news emerges. Stay tuned to Y&R and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news.
