Young and the Restless spoilers tease Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) may be the mastermind behind the JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) plot. Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) is on the hook with planted evidence and no one has more motive than Red to see him go to prison. Here’s what may be ahead on Y&R.
Young and the Restless Spoilers – Phyllis Abbott Tipped Her Hand
The showdown between Phyllis and Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) may have been a big hint to viewers. No doubt Vikki was crazy to think she would feel any sympathy towards The Mustache for being falsely accused. But when Phyllis snapped, Victoria slapped, and things got ugly. It may have been a sign that she is behind Victor’s arrest on Young and the Restless.
Did Victoria forget what her dad did to Phyllis? It’s for sure that Phyllis herself never forgot. By marrying her off to a drug dealer that looked like Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman), she was being “raped” on a nightly basis having sex with a stranger put into her bed by Victor Newman. Why would she ever forgive and forget?

Y&R Spoilers – Victor Newman Evidence Planted by Phyllis?
In fact, it’s fair to say that Phyllis Abbott may be holding a grudge against those that helped Victor Newman get out of jail so soon last time he was behind bars on Young and the Restless. That includes Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott). Of course, Phyllis doesn’t want anyone behind bars but Victor and the JT Hellstrom situation offered her a golden opportunity.
Since Phyllis had access to the body, she’s the perfect person to have gathered the evidence to frame Victor. She would have no scruples about taking him down. What he did to her with Marco Annicelli was unforgivable. As far as she is concerned, Victor in a jail cell is where he deserves to be. So she might have put him there.
Nikki sees a bloody firepoker and screams.
Nikki: “No, don’t touch it, it’s a murder weapon.”
Nick: “Mom, what are you talking about? Who’s murder?”
Nick: “How would you know that.”

JT Dead – – Or Alive And Scheming?
There are Young and the Restless rumors that JT Hellstrom is NOT dead. If he survived the attack by Nikki, Phyllis might have him stashed somewhere. Considering how much he dislikes Victor Newman, he would certainly plot with Red to take him down. So he might well be alive and her hostage – or neck in this plot.
It doesn’t matter if JT is dead or alive. Phyllis Abbott can get revenge on Victor either way. Fact is, JT Hellstrom isn’t redeemable since he was beating Victoria Newman before Nikki Newman clonked him with the fireplace poker. So if he is dead, it might be best since Mal Young ruined his character.

Young and the Restless – Phyllis Abbott Had Motive and Access
This might be a case on Y&R where an opportunity fell into Phyllis’ lap and she took advantage. She knew where the body was, so she could dig it up and move it. That would give her the clothes to plant in Nikki’s bed. If she’s behind this, she needed to make it look like someone else was tormenting the Newmans.
Phyllis Abbott could act scared, and stick close to the ladies. Then when evidence cropped up against Victor Newman, no one would think twice about Red. The one wrinkle will come if Nikki confesses to the GCPD on Young and the Restless. But even if she does, Phyllis can tell Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) that Nikki’s lying to protect Victor.
Don’t Forget What Phyllis Has Done Before
Young and the Restless spoilers remind that it’s also important to remember that Phyllis has a super shady past of her own. Remember when she kidnapped Adam Newman (Justin Hartley)? She doesn’t have clean hands at all, but that wouldn’t stop her from setting up Victor. Phyllis Abbott is capable of terrible things.
Certainly, it could be that Phyllis Abbott is two steps ahead of The Mustache (or so she thinks). He seems smug and certain that his future is not at risk. So he might know who is behind the plot. We’ll find out soon, including the fate of JT Hellstrom, as events unfold on upcoming Y&R episodes.
