The Young and the Restless spoilers say Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is boozing next week and in police custody. Can she hold it together and does the GCPD have the evidence to lock her up for killing JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill)? A brand new CBS Y&R promo (see below) shows that Nikki falls off the wagon with a thump and might take down others with her.
Young and the Restless Spoilers – Nikki Newman Drunk and Desperate
Y&R spoilers from the new promo video show that Nikki has a flask in her hands and starts guzzling booze. It’s not like she sipped a glass of wine at a party. A flask in your purse means it’s pre-meditated alcoholism but can anyone really blame the Newman matriarch? Consider what she’s dealing with and you can easily see how it’s hard to maintain her sobriety.
Spoilers for next week Young and the Restless episodes from Soap Central look tense on this topic. Nikki Newman is worried sick about her husband. Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) is missing and she has no clue what happened to him. Plus, someone planted evidence implicating Victor in JT’s murder. Then she wakes up to dead JT’s clothes in her bed. It’s like a scene from The Godfather minus the blood. It sure looks like someone is trying to frighten her into a confession.

GCPD Hauls Nikki In – Will She Come Clean or Keep Covering?
We’ve seen from recent Young and the Restless spoilers that Nikki Newman and her gang of co-conspirators are rapidly unraveling. They kidnapped Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) to scare her into confessing planting the evidence. She didn’t do it but they dumped her in the freezing woods for good measure. These ladies are like Mean Girls on steroids.
Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) isn’t down with these intimidation tactics. She pushed back on the others, but they want her to shut up and fall in line. So when Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) puts Nikki into an interrogation room, many lives are at stake. She doesn’t want to implicate Victor. But if she confesses, Sharon, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), and Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) will go down with her.
On today’s Canada Y&R/Friday’s US show, Nikki is so stressed out that she pours herself a glass of wine, goes to drink it, but hears Victoria, so she pours it in the plant! #YR #YoungandtheRestless #TheYoungandtheRestless pic.twitter.com/i0fNvN1DjS

Y&R Spoilers – Nikki Demands a Lawyer (and a Drink)!
The Young and the Restless spoilers video reveals Rey thinks he’s got Nikki cornered. The evidence he found conveniently points to Victor Newman as the killer, but JT wasn’t shot. Of course, without a body, Rey doesn’t know that. He wants answers. Nikki Newman wants her lawyer. She won’t dance to his tune, but if she’s drunk, she might get sloppy. He already hauled her in once and this is a repeat visit to the interrogation room coming soon!

Cover your tracks,
Watch your back, and
Lawyer up! ?

It could be that she takes one sip from her flask for courage, then battles against her drunk demons. But if Nikki spirals into a sloppy drunken state again, she might tell the whole truth. That means her daughter and others are at risk. We know from recent Y&R spoilers that Victor is back soon with a great story, so maybe he shows up in time to save Nikki from herself.
What do you think? Nikki could be on the path back to addiction to the bottle or this might be a one-time lapse. She needs her husband and answers about who is tormenting her. All this unfolds next week on Y&R – watch weekdays on CBS!
