The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) and Lily Winters’ (Christel Khalil) breakup could be brewing. Will that be the price to pay for Billy’s out-of-control Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) obsession?
Y&R writers have certainly made some unusual choices when it comes to this storyline and how it’s being told. For starters, they’ve eliminated any sense of suspense or drama from this whole Jesse Gaines (Jamison Jones) situation.
Victoria already knows that Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) changed Camilla Rhodes’ will with Jesse Gaines Sr.’s help, so it’s hard to care what Billy does since it’s not going to change anything.
Billy just looks like a fool for paying who knows how much for a secret that’s not even a secret anymore.
Although Billy claims he wants to protect Victoria and stop her from making one of the biggest mistakes of her life, he’s almost being portrayed as the villain of this story now.
Victoria is a grown woman who’s repeatedly asked everyone including Billy to back off.
Billy has become smug and insufferable, so the show may actually be seeing him up for a huge fall.
Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) will certainly go after ChancComm, especially if Billy dares to publish anything that could damage the Newman-Locke merger and taint Victoria’s leadership.
We can’t forget that Victor still wants revenge from the Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) exposé, so anything else Billy does will only make Victor more determined to bring him down.
Billy and Lily will face a moral dilemma during the week of October 18-22, which suggests they may consider publishing the story Gaines gave them in the wedding aftermath.
If Billy decides they should go for it, Victor’s sure to be furious. What happens if Billy’s the reason ChancComm gets destroyed?
Lily could wind up out of a job and deeply disappointed in Billy for provoking Victor to the point that he ruined their careers.
There’s also the matter of Billy’s fixation on Victoria and her romantic choices. That has to be troubling for Lily as the new woman in Billy’s life.
How long can Lily put up with Billy bending over backwards for his former flame and enraging Victoria’s father in the process?
Lily and Billy have faced a great deal of conflict throughout their relationship, but they’ve tried to communicate and work through it.
Unfortunately, soap romances rarely last forever – and that means Lily could decide she’s had enough down the road.
Y&R may make Billy pay by blowing up ChancComm and ending his relationship with Lily, but we’ll just have to see how it all plays out!
