‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Nick Grills Phyllis – Relationship on the Rocks After Murder Reveal

Young and the Restless spoilers reveal that Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) questions Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni), resulting in their relationship being at risk after the big murder reveal. While Nick doesn’t know about Phyllis’s involvement in JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) death, he’ll eventually find out. Will Nick and Phyllis’s relationship be able to survive the upcoming drama?

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Nick Newman Corners Phyllis Abbott

After learning that his mother Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) killed JT, Nick has a lot of questions. However, the last thing he expects is Phyllis Abbott was in on covering up JT’s murder. When he finally finds out the truth on Young and the Restless, things may never be the same for the couple.

The more he learns about what really happened the night JT supposedly died, the more questions he’s going to have — and the more questions he’s going to ask Phyllis. Already, the two have argued over the murder case. However, these arguments have mainly had to do with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and his role in it.

Now that Nick Newman knows his father didn’t really kill JT, he’s trying to get him out of jail. Phyllis Abbott hates this, and she lets him know. When Nick finally figures out Phyllis’s role in this whole mess, he’s more than likely going to bring up how she kept on saying Victor was the one who did it.

Y&R Spoilers: Nick Wants to Protect Nikki and Victoria

Young and the Restless spoilers showed when Nick Newman learned about what his mother did to protect Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), he’s devastated. He can’t believe that his mother and sister have been hiding the truth from him for so long. After hearing her story, he vows that the only thing he will do is protect both Nikki and Victoria.

Phyllis hopes Victor stays in jail to rot so the real truth to stay hidden. She could potentially ruin Nick’s goal to keep his mom and sister safe. While Phyllis hasn’t put Victoria in harm’s way, she has made her life miserable. For example, she knowingly spilled at JT’s memorial that JT abused Victoria.

Young and the Restless: Phyllis Wants Victor to Rot in Jail

The only thing Phyllis Abbott really wants on Young and the Restless is for Victor to spend his last days in jail. In fact, her passion for this has caused many people to wonder what her real motives are. Could Phyllis be the one framing Victor? And could she have lied to everyone, keeping a secret that JT could be alive?

Ever since Victor was wrongly arrested for murdering JT, Phyllis has been ecstatic. She doesn’t mind that Victor is being wrongly accused. Phyllis hates the man so much and thinks that he should go away forever.

Phyllis also tried to get Nick Newman to still believe Victor did it when Nick changed his mind (after learning the truth). This could come back to bite her, as she knew all along that Victor was innocent. However, this isn’t the first time Phyllis has pitted Nick against his father on Young and the Restless, and it more than likely won’t be the last!

Y&R Trouble Ahead for the Couple

Phyllis Abbott has a ton of secrets herself that she doesn’t want Nick Newman to know about. However, as previous Young and the Restless spoilers have already confirmed, the truth will eventually come out. Everyone involved will be known, and Nick will learn that Phyllis has been lying to him from the beginning.

This ultimately causes a lot of strain on their relationship. How can Phyllis Abbott explain how she tried to persuade Nick Newman to continue to think that Victor murdered JT, when she knew the truth all along? The truth ends up putting their relationship on the rocks. Will the couple be able to survive the truth?
