The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Graham (Max Shippee) is working against Dina’s (Marla Adams) best interests. But will he come to work for Victor (Eric Braeden), who’s always looking for minions to maneuver?
Y&R viewers learned that Graham is doing all that he can to remain in Dina’s good graces. However, his act is all part of a larger game. Confirmed as a manipulator, this former actor hired a photog to follow his opponent and Victor’s longtime enemy, Jack (Peter Bergman), along with Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) to the Abbott cabin. The candid shots that were obtained weren’t flattering and will be used to attack Smilin’ Jack very soon.
It wouldn’t make sense to believe that Graham was under Victor’s employ all along. If he was, the photos that were delivered to Mr. Bloodworth’s suite at the Genoa City Athletic Club would have been passed to Victor in person, or through an agreed upon third party. Instead, Graham forwarded the damning visual evidence to Victor via the United States mail using pre-printed address labels. Victor was the recipient and Dina was shown as the seeming sender.
Jack has almost always been and will probably always be at war with The Moustache. He and Nikki knew that their renewed romance, which is occurring while Niktor is still legally married, though separated, would irk the Black Knight. It will therefore come as no surprise, after the shock drops, that Victor appears to have engineered the acquisition of evidence that will put Nikki in a very weak position where probable divorce negotiations are concerned.
Graham’s main photo target wasn’t Nikki, as he wants to pit Dina against her son with the intent of severing that relationship. Mr. Bloodworth wants Madame Mergeron isolated so he can manipulate her, or possibly take her off the earth. The audience and the Abbott family knows that as soon as she’s dead Graham gains nearly all of her estate.
The true state of Dina’s mental capacity hasn’t been fully verified. But Graham covered for her recently when a simple report she turned into Jabot was a mess. That ongoing vulnerability leaves a hole open for Graham to weasel through.
It’s not hard to imagine that Graham presents his services to Victor directly, or that Victor determines that Graham forwarded him needed evidence and then forms a temporary alliance with him. Ashley’s (Eileen Davidson) recent conversation with Victor about Graham being the grifter, as he suspected, appears to project a near-future link between both men.
