The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) will shut down Chelsea Lawson’s (Melissa Claire Egan) Johnny Abbott (last played by Holden and Ryan Hare) request and insist she’s not ready to expose Connor Newman (Judah Mackey) as her son’s half-brother.
During the week of August 15-19, Chelsea will realize she can’t dump everything on Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) when it comes to her Johnny wishes. Victoria is Johnny’s mother in every way that counts, so she needs to be a crucial part of this conversation.
After Chelsea stops by Newman Enterprises, she’ll make some small talk and no doubt extend her sympathy over all the Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) drama. However, Victoria will assume there’s some sort of agenda in play and wonder what the real reason for Chelsea’s visit is.
Chelsea will admit she’s been thinking about her biological link to Johnny and the fact that he has a half-brother in Genoa City. Although Chelsea will know it’s going to be a tricky topic to tackle, she’ll make a pitch about telling Johnny the truth about her bio mom status.
Chelsea will think it’s best if Johnny and Connor know they’re more than just cousins. From Chelsea’s perspective, it won’t be a good idea to let this turn into some big secret.
By coming clean while the boys are still pretty young, Chelsea will hope they can embrace this half-brother truth and strengthen their bond as a result. Victoria will obviously struggle with this suggestion, so tension will start to bubble up.
Chelsea will try to ease that tension by assuring Victoria that she’s been a great mom to Johnny. We’ll see Chelsea make it clear that she’s not trying to undermine Victoria’s position. This will just be about telling the truth and opening up some new connections as far as Chelsea’s concerned.
Even so, Victoria will argue that Chelsea’s timing is off since Johnny is already dealing with the loss of his stepfather. Piling on this bio mom and bio brother news could be a lot on top of Ashland’s death.
Victoria will also be stressed over Chance Chancellor’s (Conner Floyd) investigation and really won’t want to add any other issues right now. It’s easy to see why Victoria will advise against coming clean to Johnny just yet.
Chelsea will realize Victoria is putting up a fight, so she’ll opt to table the discussion and try again later. However, Chelsea’s impatience could prove to be a problem as this storyline moves along.
