‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Victor’s Memory Fails – PNH Treatment Breaks The Mustache

The Young and the Restless spoilers indicate Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) soon suffers side effects from an experimental treatment for his PNH disease. The Mustache suffers this rare life threatening disease of the blood – paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. This complex disease resisted traditional treatments in Victor’s case.

So, his doctor Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) found an experimental protocol to fight this illness. Victor discussed the treatment with his wife Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and son Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) before starting it. Then, he filled in daughters Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) only after he’d started. But what comes next scares his family on the CBS sudser.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Victor Newman Already Shows Signs of Forgetfulness

Y&R spoilers say that Victor refused to show Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) any weakness. So, he left his youngest son out of the loop with the new treatment. The protocol could save his life but one of the frightening side effects could be diminished mental capacity. A daunting prospect for the mighty Victor Newman. But how long can he hide it from Adam now that he’s “slipping” mentally?

While dining at Society, Victor complains about waiting for the check. Then, Nikki Newman reminds him he already paid it. Plus, Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) noticed something was off with his old rival. And it wasn’t just the check Victor forgot. He thinks he’s still CEO of NE even though Victoria’s in his chair right now. This is a disturbing warning sign since the treatment just began, promise Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Newman Family Worries as Victor’s Mind Gets Mushy

Young and the Restless spoilers say Jack tells Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) about Victor’s slip-up. Then, Billy blabs to Vikki. She reveals a side effect of Victor’s protocol is mental confusion. Now, only Victor’s family (at least most of them) know of the new treatment and its potential drawbacks. But how long can they keep his secret and how much worse might it get?

As the treatments roll on, Victor Newman‘s memory issues likely worsen. It’s unknown whether those issues are short-term or permanent. Victor has faced many challenges in his life and always comes out on top. But he’s rarely weak so this is tough. And what makes it worse is that it makes Newman Enterprises and Victor personally vulnerable to his enemies, remind Young and the Restless spoilers.

Young and the Restless: Will Victor Newman Continue Treatments?

Y&R spoilers hint that the treatments continue to take a toll on Victor Newman’s mental acuity. He’s always prided himself on being the smartest guy in the room. But, with this new medication coursing through he’s body, his brain isn’t what it once was. His wife and children only want him to get healthy, but he might give up on his treatment if the side effects overwhelm him.

Now, Young and the Restless spoilers hint that The Mustache may second-guess his decision to pursue the experimental treatment. This may become a question of pride over self-preservation. Victor Newman might not think it’s worth it to save his life if he winds up a mental mess. So, let’s wait and see what happens next with the Newman patriarch next on the CBS sudser.
