‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Victoria’s New Man – Brandon a Rehash of Travis?

Young and the Restless spoilers for Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) show she’s getting a new man. Rocker Brandon (Mitch Eakins) is the guy she meets in Vegas. New head writer Josh Griffith’s material starts this week, but if this plot seems familiar, brace yourself. So far, the new team seems on the right track, but are they also covering old ground along the way? Here’s a look at Victoria’s new plot and the sense of deja vu on the CBS sudser.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Victoria Newman – New Man, Same Story?

It was just a few years ago that Y&R spoilers sent an annoyed Victoria out of town only to come back with a new guy. Now it seems the new writer may be rehashing this old plot. Who remembers Travis Crawford (Michael Roark) from 2016? As a matter of fact, it was April of that year when Sally Sussman and Kay Alden were writing that this storyline of Victoria Newman and Travis popped up.

Young and the Restless spoilers recall Victoria Newman went crying after work into a bar owned by Travis. She used a fake name calling herself “Tori” and didn’t let on that she was a poor, pitiful rich girl dealing with one-percenter problems. This time, she’s in Sin City and calling herself by another name. Scribe Josh Griffith and producer Anthony Morina have a chance to remake Y&R, but are they rehashing instead? Let’s hope not.

Y&R Spoilers: Vikki Swaps a Boat for a Band With New Guy

The last time Victoria Newman went and got herself some strange, it was at Hank’s Dive Bar owned by hunky Travis. She fibbed and told him she was a receptionist and worked for annoying rich people. Of course, Young and the Restless spoilers stunned him when Travis found she was one of those wealthy wankers. Back then she and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) were on the outs over Passkey.

This time, Victoria lies about a business trip and jets to Vegas. While there, she again fibs about who she is and gets cozy with the band. Billy isn’t happy to spot her on social media playing groupie. But this time, she’s mad at her other ex JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) who traumatized her. Now it seems that musician Brandon may trail after her to Genoa City as he’s part of some “mystery” storyline, say new Y&R spoilers.

Young and the Restless: High Hopes for New Writer Josh Griffith

The fact is, Y&R fans have great expectations for the work of Josh Griffith and Anthony Molina. Mal Young systematically dismantled legacy families and swept in a crowd of unfamiliar faces to GC. Now the new writer and producer team clean house with fresh announcements every day. A new younger face for Adam Newman is on the way and Arturo Rosales (Jason Canela) is driving a busted truck out of town.

The power pair stole Michelle Stafford from General Hospital to reprise Phyllis Abbott for Young and the Restless. So, even though this plot with Victoria Newman looks like they leafed back through scripts from three years ago, maybe it is something fresh. Let’s hope so. For now, Victoria is avoiding Billy, trying to forget JT, and hanging out with a hunky music man. We’ll see where the CBS soap takes it.
