The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that neither Victor (Eric Braeden) nor Nick (Joshua Morrow) is given full custody of Christian (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen) on ‘The Young and the Restless’? This possibility is plausible considering Victor’s upcoming health crisis where he appears to die.
Wait! What? Okay, scribe, what does that question in the lead paragraph even mean? There’s no way that Y&R would kill off Braeden’s character at this point in time.
Well, it’s like this – both men are given shared custody of Adam’s (Justin Hartley) son. That could result after all evidence is weighed. Then again, it might happen during proceedings. Nick will retain custody of Christian when Victor is hospitalized for an extended summer stay.
As observant viewers have seen, Victor’s health remains shaky. He pushed his recovery and is trying to present himself as being fully healed. But the Moustache remains weak after being attacked, twice, by the not so dearly departed J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) Hellstrom. Their vicious brawl at the Ranch was filmed terrifically, by the way.
The front door to the cottage was slammed after Nick received legal documents that stated Victor’s intent to sue for full custody of Christian. The ‘Black Knight’ stood alone outside, then started to fall slightly forward. He braced himself by grabbing the door panel.
Nick and Sharon (Sharon Case) didn’t see what happened, but they’ll soon know that the Moustache is frail. Victor’s health will impact the coming legal battle where Barrister Brittany (Lauren Woodland) will work for Nick.
Savvy viewers could assume that Y&R is setting up a dramatic courtroom scene where Victor drops dead on the floor. He’ll appear to have no pulse and will be rushed to the Genoa City Memorial Hospital.
Will the great Victor Newman survive?! Fade to black, as the cliffhanger week-ending episode ends, or something like that.
All with advanced degrees in daytime drama know that everything means something, including small moments like the one about Victor that was referenced above. In keeping with this soapy logic, doesn’t it stand to reason that a “judgy-wudgy” would allow both men to share custody?
Maybe, maybe not. But at least the judge quote from the late, great Jerome Lester Horwitz (Curly from Three Stooges, in the 1936 Columbia Pictures short ) was enabled to be inserted into this feature. And the film reference matches conjecture about what will be transpired in court between this dysfunctional father and son pairing.
