‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Nick Newman’s Anti-Adam Plot Backfires

Young and the Restless spoilers hint Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) might pay for plotting against Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). Rather than being happy to learn his brother was alive, Nick was petty, jealous, and judgy.

Right with him was Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and their mom Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott). But now that Nick Newman got what he wanted – Adam gone – it might cost him everything. Does Nick deserve an attitude adjustment on Y&R?

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Nick Newman Faces Backlash

Y&R spoilers indicate Nick Newman’s scrambling to explain to his loved ones why he lied to them. Five people he cares about are irritated with him. First, Summer Newman (Hunter King) can’t believe her father and family lied to her about her grandpa dying.

Also, her mom Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) rages at her ex over hurting their daughter. She sees clearly that the Newmans didn’t care who they devastated while targeting Adam Newman. DOOL spoilers say Phyllis won’t calm down.

Third, his other daughter Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind) was crushed to learn her dad let her mourn her grandfather’s fake death. Young and the Restless spoilers say Nick put hatred of Adam before his love of these people. But, there’s more.

Y&R Spoilers: Chelsea Newman Can’t Forgive

Young and the Restless spoilers predict Chelsea Newman won’t let go of what Nick put her son through. Because his fixation on destroying Adam hurt Chelsea and Connor Newman (Judah Mackey). And she can’t forget or forgive his poor choice of priorities.

Then, to make it worse, Nick Newman ran to his family rather than talking things through with Chelsea. For a man that says he wants to be independent of the Newmans, he’s acting like a vengeful little lapdog. Y&R fans seem sick and tired of Nick’s bullying and targeting Adam.

In fact, the way Nick Newman’s been acting earned him the nickname “Dickolas” from fans on social media. At one point, Nick seemed above the fray when he owned the bar and avoided his dad’s drama. But, Young and the Restless spoilers show he’s changed in recent months.

Young and the Restless: Will Nick Lose Chelsea and His Reputation?

Y&R spoilers indicate the new showrunners are taking characters in new/old directions. For Adam Newman, it’s back to his darker era. And for Nick Newman, it’s to show him consumed with jealousy. This week, Chelsea echoes fan sentiment when chewing out her honey.

She told him that he put revenge against Adam Newman above everything else. Young and the Restless spoilers hint this huge lie put a big crack in many of Nick’s relationships. The excuse he keeps repeating is that Adam Newman’s a villain, so it had to be done.

But Y&R spoilers remind that to Summer, Phyllis, Faith, Chelsea, and Connor, the bad guy right now is Nick Newman, not Adam Newman. So, he helped run Adam out of town, but Nick might wind up losing big. Do you think he deserves to be taken down a notch on Y&R?
