‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Victor Set Up – What Is He Hiding?

Young and the Restless spoilers video for next week shows Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) looking smug behind bars rather than anxious. Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) wants to share the truth about JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) but it looks like Victor has ideas of his own. Is he hiding something? Why isn’t he more worried about being behind bars?

Young and the Restless Spoilers – Victor Newman Set Up

It looks like someone planted evidence that points back to Victor Newman being the perpetrator of a murder. Furthermore, the cops act as if they have the JT murder completely wrapped up and solved suggest Young and the Restless spoilers. That’s despite them not having a corpse!

As Victor peers out from his jail cell, you can almost see the wheels turning in his head. He claims he’s facing false charges. Nikki believes she’s the one who killed JT and she might have, but the body disappeared a while back on Y&R.

Y&R Spoilers – Evidence Planted

Either someone moved JT’s corpse or he wasn’t dead and literally walked away. Despite the lack of a body, Detective Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) feels there’s enough evidence to get Victor Newman convicted. But the Young and the Restless spoilers suggest the evidence was planted. Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) also claims someone is implicating his father in the Y&R video spoiler.

Victor’s past Y&R adversaries are not willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. This includes Phyllis Newman (Gina Tognoni) who tells both Nick and Victoria what she thinks. As far as Phyllis is concerned, all the evidence points to Victor. Phyllis pushes Victoria’s buttons next week. First, Phyllis shares her thoughts on Victor in a scene with Victoria. This amps up with Victoria taking a hard swing to slap her across the face.

Nikki Newman Attempts a Confession

Nikki is out of that hospital bed and apparently doing well as she visits Victor in jail. She attempts to tell her husband what she did to JT. She believes she killed JT but Victor doesn’t want to hear it. Then the Young and the Restless spoiler video shoots to Victor in jail talking with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).

It looks like Jack believes Victor’s case is signed, sealed and delivered with nothing to get in the way. He tells Victor that all the evidence points to him in another scene from the Y&R video spoiler. Furthermore, Jack delivers the words, “guilty or not it doesn’t really matter, you’re going down”. That’s when a defiant-sounding Victor smugly looks at Jack and asks “really?”

Victor Keeping a Secret?

What does Victor Newman know that makes him so sure he will fare just fine when it comes to JT’s murder accusations?  A Young and the Restless flashback plays out in one of the spoiler clips showing Nikki clobbering JT and him going down. Still, when Nikki tells Victor why she knows he didn’t kill JT, he seems to have his own agenda about seeing this through his way.

In another scene, Phyllis pokes Victoria with a stick. She tells Victoria that Victor should get everything he deserves. Then there’s Rey insisting they’ve got the right culprit when they nabbed Victor Newman. But still, the patriarch of the Newman family looks like he’s got a trump card he’s getting ready to play. What’s Victor Newman up to?
