The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Victor (Eric Braeden) will eventually use his knowledge of Christian’s (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen) paternity to lure Adam (most recently played by Justin Hartley) back to town. Nick (Joshua Morrow) will then prove to be the target of his father’s latest demented revenge plan.
Role reversal. That’s what will take place when Adam is discovered to have survived Chloe’s (Elizabeth Hendrickson) plot to kill him and is, in effect, resurrected. Victor will ensure that Christian’s paternity secret is exposed, which will result in Nick losing his son for a second time.
Ensuring doesn’t mean that Victor will announce the news himself. Orchestrated events will spill that gossip via GC Buzz. Hilary (Mishael Morgan) will be more than happy to oblige.
The original adult version of Adam (played by Chris Engen) became Victor’s main whipping boy within a short time after his arrival in Genoa City during the last decade. Michael Muhney’s version of the character regularly waged war with the man whose first name he shares. Then, Hartley’s edition was framed for the murder of Constance Bingham (Sally Kellerman) by the Moustache.
However, Victor recently renounced his ties to Nicholas. That happened because Morrow’s character attempted to kick the legs out from under his mother’s piano (performance). Yes, that was cheeky. But this is soap that’s being referenced so all is allowed.
Nick’s banishment means that Victor’s war path will likely include the forced involvement of other blood relatives. Having manipulated multiple familiar members in the past, the Black Knight will have no problem using Adam’s second-born son (Christian) as part of a game to darken Nick’s soul.
Nick will obviously be devastated to learn that the boy he once thought was dead and then reclaimed was never his son. Learning that Christian is Adam’s child will also enable Nick to repeatedly cross paths with this extracted part of his heart.
As that game plays out, Victor will seek to maintain positive relations with Adam. Father and son bonded a day before Adam was believed to have died. It will be advantageous in Victor’s mind to keep this renewed alliance as a counterbalance to Nick’s enemy status.
Adam’s next revival will include another chance to work with his father. While Victor sees Scott (Daniel Hall) as an ally, he’s not blood. This development will prove to be fortuitous for Adam, while simultaneously awful for Nick. CDL is a leading source for everything linked to The Young and the Restless.
