Young and the Restless spoilers from a leaked set picture show that Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) may be on trial. The remaining cover-up gang may also face a day in court.
As Nikki is set to confess to the police, that means the GCPD’s case against Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) falls apart. But when she is hauled into court, the other ladies may also have to face the music. See the pics below!
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Nikki Newman on Trial for Murder?
According to leaked photos from Camryn Grimes’ (aka Mariah) Instag story, it looks like Y&R has a courtroom scene in the near future. In the video she posted, Joshua Morrow is in a chair in the courtroom set they always use for trials.
Of course, this means (hopefully) the JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) murder trials finally happens so this too-long plot wraps up. As the show films about a month in advance, we probably won’t see these scenes until March. However, we do know that this week, Nikki Newman stops Victor’s trial.
As previous Young and the Restless spoilers revealed, Nikki finally confesses to the police. As it looks like someone is framing Victor for the murder, Nikki has to come clean to save him. She doesn’t want Victor going to prison because of something she did.
Y&R Spoilers: Police Question Nikki Newman and the Cover-Up Gang
Other leaked pictures from the set of Young and the Restless also reveal that the police become suspicious of the cover-up ladies. While Nikki struck the fatal blow, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), Sharon Newman (Sharon Case), and Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) were all involved in burying the body. From the last set of leaked photos we shared, a script copy shows Phyllis gets her mugshot taken.
Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) grills Nikki Newman and the other women. The GCPD arrests Phyllis and perhaps the other ladies, too. So the trial could be for her or Nikki – or both. Nikki confesses at the courtroom doors this week to save Victor. Plus, Phyllis being mugshotted is also confirmed.
However, other Y&R spoilers revealed more twists and turns are coming as the murder story comes to a close. For instance, the Newman family has yet to find out who wants revenge on them. And there’s always the chance that JT could still be alive since his body never turned up after it went missing.
Young and the Restless Spoilers: JT Hellstrom’s Murder Storyline Ends (At Last!)
Y&R fans rejoice! The story of JT’s murder is finally coming to an end. For almost a year, it dragged on. Now, with a new head writer, Josh Griffith, at the helm, this sloppy story finally wraps.
Josh Griffith’s stories have just begun filming, so this courtroom scene could be his first writing. Let’s hope he can clean up the plots on Young and the Restless and restore it to its glory days. In the meantime, watch CBS for Nikki Newman’s confession and what looks like a criminal trial in her future.
