‘Young and the Restless’: New Writer Could Salvage JT Hellstrom

Young and the Restless could save JT Hellstrom‘s (Thad Luckinbill) character, especially now that new writers are in charge. The JT murder mystery story has been going on since about April of last year now. As fans are sick of how long the story has dragged out under Mal Young’s leadership, could the new head writer, Josh Griffith, possibly save the whole narrative while also salvaging JT’s reputation?

Young and the Restless Spoilers: JT Hellstrom’s Death Looms Large

Because Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) killed JT Hellstrom early last year, his death has loomed large on Young and the Restless since. This is mainly because the mystery has yet to be solved. However, it looks like this is finally coming to a close — and may even end sometime soon during the February sweeps!

The mystery is still going strong, even if the police have yet to find out that Nikki, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni), and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) are all involved in JT’s murder’s coverup. However, that will eventually happen in the near future. Will this finally end the murder investigation?

Slowly, people are putting the pieces together on Young and the Restless. Most recently, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) learned the whole truth from Nikki. When will everyone else learn the truth, hopefully putting this long story to bed?

Y&R Spoilers: JT Still Alive?

Evidently, there are still a few twists and turns in JT’s mystery, according to recent Young and the Restless spoilers. At the moment, Victor Newman is being accused by the police of killing JT. It seems like someone is setting Victor up, and having a very easy time framing him!

Could this person be JT Hellstrom? A lot of fans have questioned whether he could still be alive. After all, the police never found a body. Plus, all Nikki did to kill him was whack him on the head with a fire poker stick. While this definitely could have killed him, it also maybe didn’t.

Someone with a grudge is framing Victor — and that someone could be JT. After all, he hated Victor and even tried to kill the man once or twice. Could JT Hellstrom be alive and be behind Victor’s framing?

Young and the Restless Spoilers: New Writers Could Pull Twin Storyline

While the new writers at Young and the Restless could continue Mal Young’s storyline as he originally planned it, they could also go another route. One thing they could do, which fans may really love, is somehow save JT’s character. At this point, can his character be salvaged?

One easy, soapy, way to do this is to pull off a twin storyline. After all, Thad Luckinbill (who plays JT Hellstrom) actually has a twin in real life! So it isn’t like this is an incredibly far leap to make, even if it has been done in many soaps before.

If JT Hellstrom has an evil twin, this could be the one who abused Victoria and tried to kill Victor before Nikki killed him. Then, the real JT could be using this information to frame Victor for the murder. The real JT could also have the body, as no has found it yet. So, could the new head writers save his character and put an end to this very long story?
