Young and the Restless spoilers reveal Billy Abbott‘s (Jason Thompson) gaslighter at last. We’ve been wondering for a while if he was just plain nuts or someone was messing with his mind. The answer is – it’s both! In a classic soapy plot, Billy’s got two personalities. Himself – the wonderful non-husband to Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and stand-out dad. But then there’s dark Billy who is driving himself over the brink towards attacking Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). See how he twists himself up into knots and finally lashes out at the man he blames for Delia Abbott’s (Sophie Pollono) death on the CBS soap.
Young and the Restless Spoilers: Yep, Billy Abbott’s Officially Bat Crap Crazy
Y&R spoilers indicate Billy Abbott has DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder). This has been used before on soaps and basically, there are two distinct people living inside your mind. So, Billy’s alter ego, Killer-Billy, is the one leaving the doll around, writing on the walls, and whispering weird Delia voices in his mind. So, he’s been self-gaslighting this whole time with no clue he was tormenting himself. Obviously, Adam’s return from the dead snapped something in his brain.
But the real Billy Abbott has no idea there’s someone else in his head or that he’s suffering a very serious mental illness. He even talked to a therapist, then left after one session. So, perhaps his alter ego didn’t want him seeing someone in the mental health field that might figure out there was a dark half to his brain. Plus, Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) has a degree now and some experience. Maybe she’ll be the one to spot the red flags that Billy Abbott’s gone over the edge, tease Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Killer-Billy Takes Over Completely – Goes After Adam Newman
Next week on Young and the Restless, spoilers tell us Billy Abbott’s condition rapidly deteriorates. Victoria has no idea that her man’s falling apart inside his own head. She only knows he’s not always where he says he was and seems to be MIA from a lot of family outings. Plus, he just went off on the entire Abbott clan about the Jabot merger. There are warning signs that he’s off the rails, but no one’s put it all together yet. Soon, Killer-Billy takes over and breaks into Adam Newman’s penthouse and steals a memento.
It’s a hankie belonging to Hope Wilson (Signy Coleman), Adam’s mother. Later, the real Billy wakes and finds this accessory in his pocket with no idea where it came from or how it got there. The problem is, finding it brings Killer-Billy to the surface. The dark and vengeful DID personality completely takes over and shoves normal Billy into the recesses of his mind. All that’s left is the guy that wants Adam Newman dead. This turn of events is bad for both Billy Abbott and Adam Newman, promise Young and the Restless spoilers.
Young and the Restless: Adam Blindsided When Delia’s Daddy Attacks
With the saner version of Billy Abbott tucked away for safekeeping, Y&R spoilers promise Killer Billy has free rein to wreak havoc and get vengeance for Delia’s death. The larger question is what’s pushed Billy Abbott beyond the limits of sanity. Perhaps his subconscious finally forces him to acknowledge that his bad choices played a large role in his daughter’s death. After all, had Billy just taken her inside the store to pick up ice cream, she’d be alive now. It was his poor decision making that put Delia in harm’s way.
As for Adam Newman, the hit and run was just an accident. He stopped to see what he struck and didn’t notice Delia’s broken body, remind Young and the Restless spoilers. Truly, Adam’s crime came after the fact when he tried to cover up evidence of his involvement. Many fans think Billy’s far guiltier than Adam when it comes to little Delia’s death. Plus, it’s not like Adam Newman’s got a great life. His big brother’s playing dad to both his sons – and he’s got no woman in his life and his entire family’s shunned him.
Yet Killer Billy still thinks Adam needs to pay. Billy Abbott slips deeper into madness and his alter ego confronts Adam next week. Someone saves him from Killer-Billy Abbott, though, and it’s a huge surprise who it is. Wait to see what goes down next week on the CBS sudser.
