The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Adam Newman’s (Mark Grossman) scheme won’t turn out like he wanted. Of course, things will start off well enough as Adam gains power at Newman Enterprises. Adam will have the sweet satisfaction of knowing the student has eclipsed the master. He’ll feel a sense of pride over making Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) do whatever he wants.
Adam knows this is bound to start a war, but he thinks he can handle it as long as he’s in control. It’s clear that Adam’s goal is messing with Victor and proving they’re just alike. Adam doesn’t actually want his father to land behind bars.
After all, Victor’s actions in Kansas were about protecting Adam and Hope Wilson (last played by Beth Toussaint). It’s not like Victor had AJ Montalvo murdered just for kicks; it was a response to AJ’s involvement in Cliff Wilson’s death.
AJ’s plot to scare Cliff went awry, but the point is Victor knew AJ was targeting Cliff. Victor surely feared Hope and Adam could become targets, too. In other words, The Young and the Restless has set this story up in a way where Victor doesn’t really look like the bad guy.
AJ was a creepy loan shark who resorted to terrible tactics. Victor didn’t take out some saint. That doesn’t mean murder is justified, but it’s important since Adam’s become the truly diabolical one in all this. They’re setting Adam up to regret scheming against Victor.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Adam’s plot will indeed backfire spectacularly, so that could happen in a variety of ways. Alyssa Montalvo (Maria DiDomenico) could become a bigger problem than Victor anticipated.
Adam got Alyssa to solve this whole case, so will she really sit back and let her hard work go to waste? Alyssa may want that story published despite Adam’s attempts to bury it.
There are also some hints about Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) becoming part of the equation. Billy will eventually discover a lead that intrigues him, so he’ll chase it and could potentially find out a major secret. If Billy ends up publishing this story through Chancellor Media, it could spell disaster for Victor.
Adam keeps gloating about how he could send Victor to prison, but how’s he going to feel if he truly puts Victor there? Victor could be arrested if this secret’s exposed, so can you imagine Adam watching his father be led away in handcuffs? Adam would know he’s gone too far once again.
Connor Newman (Judah Mackey) would be crushed over Grandpa going to jail. This would be like another version of when Adam thought he caused Victor’s death. Adam’s guilt really took a toll during all that, but he apparently didn’t learn his lesson. Would Victor’s arrest and potential prison stint finally do the trick?
Regardless, Victor always manages to get off the hook, so there’s no need to worry too much. As other Y&R news emerges, CDL will have plenty of updates. The Young and the Restless always lets Victor win in the end, but things may look bleak for a while! Be sure to check back often for hot Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news posts.
