‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Victor Fights For His Life As Illness Worsens

Young and the Restless spoilers say Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) finds himself in the toughest battle of his life in the next few weeks. The Mustache always overcomes obstacles. But this is out of his hands, so he’s really struggling. In fact, things are so serious, he calls the Newman kids together so he can update them on his health crisis. This is not a good news session. His prognosis is bad, the treatments are failing, and he must take a drastic step with far-reaching consequences. Y&R spoilers for the CBS sudser reveal there are heavy scenes coming soon as this PNH disease story kicks into high gear.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Victor Newman Chooses Scary Treatment

Y&R spoilers predict Victor decides he must try the experimental treatment that he and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) discussed. Dr Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) told them it came with serious side effects. So, this is what Victor Newman must tell his children about before he starts taking this new approach to his very serious illness. So, he gathers the family and it’s time for a talk that no one will like.

Soon, Victor gathers his family close to tell them the latest news. Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) take the news of their father’s failing health especially hard. Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) may be shocked that something’s finally weakened his unshakeable dad. Then again, Victor warned him that this was a possibility before he decided to start the treatment. Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) handles it differently, hint Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Adam Newman Worried – Already Certain Victor’s in Real Trouble

Last week’s Young and the Restless spoilers had Adam Newman certain The Mustache wasn’t coming clean. In the boxing scene, Adam told him he’s not like his siblings and realizes things are serious and can handle the worst news. But Victor Newman wouldn’t open up or let himself be vulnerable with the prodigal son. He held on and played tough until Adam left, then seemed on the verge of physical collapse from weakness. But rest assured this is just TV and the actor is fine.

But have no fear Y&R fans. While Victor may be down for the moment, spoilers hint he is not out by a long shot. Longtime fans of the CBS soap know that Victor Newman won’t go down without a fight. Spoilers say he is going to do everything in his power to fight this disease until his last breath. Accepting this experimental approach to the paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is his one shot to survive this say the Young and the Restless spoilers.

Young and the Restless: Newman Family Pulls Together or Falls Apart After Victor’s Update?

Y&R spoilers remind that Adam warned his dad Victor Newman that if his health fails, the rest of the family will collapse. He reminded his dad that he did without him for years. It’s true that Nick and Victoria and even Abby grew up as sheltered Newmans. Victor protected them at every turn but Adam grew up without this. So, he’s right that they might all fall apart. Already, Nikki, Nick, Abby, and Victoria are terrified of what will happen to their once-infallible father.

Young and the Restless spoilers promise this week, Victor Newman gathers his family to explain what he has to do — and what comes next. The big concern was cognitive decline. It sure looks like the CBS sudser is setting up the actor for some Emmy-worthy moments. As for fans asking if Eric Braeden is sick in real life or if he’s leaving the show. The answers are he’s not and no. Victor Newman’s sticking around to fight – and Braeden is in great shape.
