‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Adam Didn’t Kill Delia – Victor Set Him Up?

Young and the Restless spoilers promise more on Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) and Delia’s death. Could it be that Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) set up his son? History tells us he had good reasons to do so at the time. Showrunner Josh Griffith is re-doing the Delia Abbott (Sophie Pollono) death story. But why? Griffith wrote the tragic death saga but never got to see it through.

Now it looks like he’s going back to clean up the loose ends. And all signs point to him exonerating Adam at last. But now, Billy Abbott’s (Jason Thompson) unhinged and gunning for him. Will the truth finally come out before it’s too late on the CBS soap? It could be that Victor was the one that pointed at Adam on Y&R. Here’s how and why.

Young and the Restless Spoilers Refresher: Nikki Newman on the Road That Night Driving Drunk

Y&R spoilers remind that the roads in Genoa City were crowded that night and lots of bad decisions were made. First, Billy was out with Delia and decided to leave his very young daughter alone in a car with a puppy on the dark road. That was poor parenting, obviously. Second, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) was boozing and driving – as she was reeling over her personal life. Third, Adam Newman was also on the road. So were his doppelganger Gabriel Bingham – and Sage.

Either of them could have hit Delia, but since the writers are redeeming Adam, they might finally reveal he’s totally innocent in the hit and run death. That night, Nikki tried to tell Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton) he was her son. She wound up behind the wheel on dark roads at the same time Delia Abbott was struck. There was a glimpse of her driving that night at the same time as the accident, remind Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Victor Newman Hated Adam Newman During That Time

Young and the Restless spoilers recall that was just a few months after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and was struggling with her disease. Also, she and Victor remarried earlier that year. So, he The Mustache had a lot of reasons to protect his wife. And he and Adam were on bad terms back in the day. Then, Victor Newman despised Adam Newman. Because Adam was tight with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) who was acting as essentially his surrogate dad.

It rankled Victor that Adam was so close to his arch-enemy. Plus, Adam jabbed at Victor constantly. They had animosity over Stephanie Gayle’s death and trying to place blame for her OD. Victor Newman schemed against Jack and Adam Newman both and would be happy to see Adam Newman behind bars. Plus, Victor hired a private investigator to look into the Delia crash, remind Young and the Restless spoilers.

Young and the Restless: The Mustache Knows the Truth

Y&R spoilers say Victor’s investigator found a sketchy witness and then tied  that to Adam Newman’s license plate. But Victor could have very easily have doctored the evidence. If his PI found that Nikki Newman was the hit and run driver, Victor Newman would have definitely thrown Adam Newman under the bus to save her. There’s no debating he hated Adam Newman that much when these events occurred. Victor could have easily cleaned up the mess if Nikki did the crime.

Nikki Newman’s a known menace on the road and almost killed when DUI before. So, if it was her, of course Victor would cover it up. It’d be no problem for him to take evidence from Nikki’s car and plant it on Adam’s. Even if Nikki wasn’t responsible – and Adam wasn’t either – Victor Newman pointing the blame finger at Adam is very plausible. He truly hated his youngest son back then on Y&R on CBS.

Of course, they might not go the route of pinning it on Nikki since that would devastate her. The writers can always shift blame to someone that’s no longer in the cast of active characters so they redeem all involved. So what do you think?
