The Young and the Restless spoilers documented that Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) killed three people, yet somehow remains unjailed. While her third victim, J.T. Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) thirsts for justice in the netherworld, Nikki is becoming nervous.
So Paul (Doug Davidson) has J.T.’s cell phone analysis. That’s not good news for the gaggle that covered up his accidental murder. And accidental is the key word in the last sentence. Nikki should have followed Sharon’s (Sharon Case) advice, rather than having given in to Phyllis’ (Gina Tognoni) baser instincts. By doing so, Nikki actually committed a crime.
It was not wrong, or illegal for Nikki to have conked J.T. on the back of his blond-haired noggin. She was defending Victoria (Amelia Heinle) from that raging lunatic.
Yes, Hellstrom fell dead on the floor in front of the oddly gathered quartet. His soul instantly descended toward the first four letters of J.T.’s last name, stopping in the area in between, popularly known as Purgatory, due to the good he did during earlier parts of his life. Those upbeat moments were seen by Y&R’s loyal viewers between 1999-2010.
This column, like all the others on this site, offers education to all savvy readers, which is everyone. In so doing, longtime, mid-term, and newer fans know that J.T. wasn’t a bad guy. But Luckinbill agreed to return to the cast in order to take Mr. Hellstrom’s final bad series of bows. Hopefully, he receives the Best Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series Award at next year’s streamed ceremony.
Okay, so what’s the snark about Nikki being a so-called experienced killer? Well, she offed her father, who assaulted her. She whiz-banged Diane Jenkins (Maura West), who went nuts, and now, Nikki has removed J.T. from the earth. That’s only partially true, as she helped carry his body to Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) Park and then assisted in his burial at the area of New Hope’s restoration project. So, he’s actually become part of the earth.
No new hope for J.T., huh Nikki? But is there still hope for you to avoid being arrested, issued an ill-fitting and garish blue jump suit, and then escorted to a barred room.
Of course all will come out in the digital wash. Paul will eventually piece together the messy parts. Someone, or more than one, within the Girls Night In gang might slip up. Nikki’s spurned love interest, Arturo (Jason Canela) and his crew could even unearth the decaying corpse as well.
By that time the maggots likely will have eaten through J.T.’s 1990’s style mullet. Yow! How about that ending-visual Y&R fans? Now you all now how Nikki’s stomach feels. CDL is a leading source for everything linked to The Young and the Restless. Check back regularly for Y&R spoilers and news!
