‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: New Writer Resurrects JT – Ends Awful Mal Young Plot

Young and the Restless spoilers confirm new head writer Josh Griffith is behind JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) return. Apparently, the move came into motion immediately after he took the reins. Spoilers also say this signals the JT murder story is coming to a close after dragging almost a year under Mal Young’s reign.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Josh Griffith Brings JT Hellstrom Back

Recent Y&R spoilers promise it was new writer Josh Griffith’s idea to bring back JT Hellstrom to wrap the murder plot. Character return details remain obscure, but Thad Luckinbill is filming again. He could simply be in a dream sequence or a flashback.

However, this latest Young and the Restless spoiler implies that JT may return alive. This wouldn’t be the first time someone resurrected on the show. Plus, the police have yet to find his body. So, it’s quite possible that he didn’t die.

Griffith decided to restore JT and other characters to wrap some storylines that left fans dissatisfied. With him in the picture again, the ladies on trial for his murder could be off the hook instantly. After all, you can’t convict someone for murder when the man is still alive. The new writer is definitely making his mark.

Y&R Spoilers: JT Murder Trial Ongoing

At the moment, the murder and cover-up case continues on Young and the Restless. Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) await their fate. Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) betrayed everyone by confessing to save herself.

It looks like this storyline could wrap soon, as the women hear their sentence in the next two weeks. However, previous spoilers reveal there are still a few twists to come. JT reappearing and announcing he’s alive would surely shake things up — if it goes that way.

The ladies are fighting for their lives in court. In fact, Victoria soon takes the stand to defend their actions explaining how JT abused her. Victoria’s painful testimony could get the ladies get off the hook. Because, at this point, they need a miracle on Y&R.

Young and the Restless: New Writer Salvages JT Hellstrom?

While Josh Griffith could resurrect JT Hellstrom for any reason, he might redeem his character. Fans hated what Mal Young did to JT’s character with the Victoria abuse story. However, the writer could always find a way to change this up on Y&R.

There are obviously many ways he could restore his reputation on Young and the Restless. They could pull the soapy twin twist and reveal abusive JT was an evil twin. After all, Thad Luckinbill has an identical twin in real life.

Regardless of how it’s done, he could save the ladies. If he’s alive, they can’t be charged with his murder. However, that helps only if JT Hellstrom appears before they’re sentenced. Perhaps, fans must wait for  his return a while longer.
