The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that J.T. (Thad Luckinbell) is hiding something from Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and everyone else in Genoa City. In Monday’s Y&R episode, January 22, J.T. takes out a prescription pill bottle and takes some with his wine. Is J.T. actually quite sick? Could he even be – gulp – dying?
J.T. and Victoria are currently falling head over heels for each other. Their reunion has been real a whirlwind so far. Victoria feels like she’s on top of the world, so she’s going to need something to make her come crashing down. That’s just how it works on The Young and the Restless. No one ever gets to be happy for very long.
Plus, we know that J.T.’s return isn’t permanent. He signed on for a lengthy stint, but we’ve already burned through a good chunk of it. Y&R will need an exit strategy soon enough. The Young and the Restless spoilers say J.T. will continue to take pills behind Victoria’s back. He may be hiding a serious illness.
In fact, that would explain why J.T. was so willing to stay in town. He kept extending his trip before he even started truly reconnecting with Victoria. J.T. suggested that he wanted to help Reed (Tristan Lake Leabu) get back on track, but maybe it was really about spending time with him.
If J.T. knows he doesn’t have long to live, that would also explain why he’s picking up the pace in his renewed romance. Victoria and J.T.’s relationship is certainly on the fast track. What’s the hurry? The Young and the Restless obviously wants to move this along so they have a reasonable excuse for J.T.’s exit.
From the character’s point of view, J.T. may be trying to live life to the fullest. His mentality could simply be rubbing off on Victoria. Of course, she doesn’t have all the facts. Victoria’s sure to have questions when she inevitably finds out about his prescription. She’ll be taken aback if he admits the end is near.
Will Y&R kill J.T. off? That’s one possibility to consider. Of course, Victor (Eric Braeden) has plenty of connections as well as cash to pony up. He could always arrange for some clinical trial that would take J.T. away from Genoa City. That would be his ideal situation anyway! Victor certainly doesn’t want J.T. and Victoria together.
Whatever the case, J.T’s secret means heartbreak is brewing. We’ll give you updates as other Y&R news comes in. Stick with the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news.
