‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Phyllis Challenges Billy – Scrambles for Power

Young and the Restless spoilers explain that Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) begins to challenge Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson). She is upset with how she was shoved out of Jabot, which led her to try blackmailing Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman). Now, it appears she sets her sights on Billy on next week’s Y&R on CBS.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Phyllis Abbott Challenges Billy Abbott

Y&R spoilers promise Phyllis Abbott isn’t ready to let go of her quest for power, even if her latest plan to blackmail Jack Abbott completely failed. After being shoved out of Jabot, she’s furious over how she was treated. She wants power, she wants revenge, and she wants to make the Abbott boys pay.

So, Phyllis evidently targets Billy Abbott next. She and Billy have a long, long history now of going against each other. Whether it’s for personal or business purposes, the two don’t need much to begin to hate each other. After her unsuccessful blackmail plan, it appears Phyllis might try to take down Billy.

While not the Jabot CEO, Billy’s still vitally important to the company. If she manages to gain power over Billy somehow, she could eventually reclaim some of what she once had. If she doesn’t mess it all up, according to recent Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Phyllis’ Blackmail Plan Falls Apart

At this point, Phyllis Abbott might simply be grasping at straws on Young and the Restless. Spoilers show she lost quite a lot in the last few weeks, some because of her own actions. A lot of the terrible things that happened were because she ratted out the other ladies of the cover-up gang to save herself.

Now, she doesn’t have a lot of people by her side. Her boyfriend Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) left her, and she doesn’t necessarily have a lot of people supporting her. While spoilers hint that Phyllis and Jack could reconnect soon, perhaps after the upcoming recast. At the moment they’re still fighting each other.

Phyllis was so sure that her scheme to blackmail Jack (with pictures of his son cheating on her daughter) would work. However, Jack and his son Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) managed to win one over on her. Now, Phyllis has less power than she did before, predict new Y&R spoilers.

Young and the Restless: Phyllis All Alone

Now more than ever, Phyllis Abbott finds herself quite alone. Y&R spoilers say this may be why she zones in on Billy Abbott again. She needs some sort of power, and knows exactly how to infuriate Billy and get what she wants. Even if he doesn’t know it, Billy Abbott could play right into her hands.

Without any power or business standing, Phyllis doesn’t have much on Young and the Restless. Before the blackmail scheme failed, she had Lauren Baldwin (Tracey E Bregman) on her side. The two wanted to get Fenmore’s away from Jabot. She would’ve gained so much power if this scheme had worked.

However, after this blackmail plan failed, Jack discussed business with Lauren which resulted in her keeping Fenmore’s aligned with Jabot. Now, Phyllis truly is on her own. As she works some standing, Phyllis Abbott takes on Billy Abbott on her latest scheme on the CBS soap.
