‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Nikki Newman Being Watched – Danger Lurks In the Shadows?

Young and the Restless spoilers suggest Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is unaware that someone is watching her every move. It’s not the cops keeping an eye out to see if she has contact with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). With Victor in prison, the cops don’t need to watch anyone to find the once fugitive, they have him tucked away in a cell.

Young and the Restless Spoilers – Nikki Newman in Danger?

If it’s not the law watching Victor’s wife’s moves, this can only mean danger lurks in the shadows for Nikki Newman. Just recently, Nikki made her confession to Victor while visiting him in prison on a Young and the Restless episode.

The Newman matriarch did her best to convince Victor she knows who murdered JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill). Still, Victor seems to have his own agenda attached to this disappearance. What does he know that no one else seems to know?

Y&R Moving On Without a Body

It seems like the dwellers of Genoa City are treating the JT murder case as if it is a done deal despite the lack of a body. Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) seems more than convinced that Victor is guilty. Even Reed Hellstrom  (Tristan Lake Leabu) wants some type of funeral for his dad, according to Young and the Restless spoilers.

Victor continues to claim the evidence was planted. He believes he’s being set up. But by who? Does Victor hold the key to all the mysterious happenings since JT’s body disappeared?

Nikki Believes She’s Guilty

Nikki Newman is adamant that Victor is not the guilty party in JT’s murder, despite a body nowhere to be found. She believes she killed JT with that conk over the head many Young and the Restless episodes ago.

Nikki’s hit and run was not part of the JT ploy, as the four ladies of the cover-up originally believed. With that said, there’s still someone out there. That’s probably the someone who left JT’s bloody clothes laid out on Nikki’s bed. Not to mention that someone who started the fire.

The person who’s been toying with Nikki and the other women in this coverup might be the same person lurking in the shadows today. The Y&R spoilers say someone is watching Nikki Newman.

Victor Newman Hiding Something

Victor only showed back up in town when he learned Nikki was fighting for her life. By coming to Nikki he risked getting caught by the law.

Victor’s plan was to get Nikki out of harm’s way. While it looked like he believed Nikki was still in danger from the same person who did the hit and run, maybe that wasn’t the case. Did Victor know all along who posed a danger to Nikki? Is he having her watched because of this?

Did Victor believe Nikki’s danger came from another source? Is that source now looming in Genoa City keeping an eye on Nikki’s every movement? Or… is Victor having someone protecting his wife? It looks like there’s so many questions with very few answers as the Y&R amps up for a Victor surprise.

One Confident Guy

Victor Newman appears extremely confident that he won’t pay for JT’s murder. When Jack Abbot (Peter Bergman) pays him a visit in jail this week, Victor’s coy demeanor doesn’t fit a man sitting behind bars. Especially that of a man facing a murder rap.

Jack tells him it doesn’t matter if he’s guilty or not, he’s going down for the murder. Victor Newman looks like the cat who swallowed the canary. He has a coy reply for Jack and the facial expressions to go along with it. Victor is cool, calm and oh, so collected!

Guarding Nikki

If Victor Newman knows something and that something could lead to danger for Nikki, you can bet the farm he’s having her watched. Maybe Nikki is in danger but not from the person lurking in the shadows.

That person might be there under Victor’s orders. Victor might want Nikki watched because he knows something no one else does right now. Stayed tuned weekdays to CBS to find out these answers.
