‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers Week of Dec 17: Nikki Left Dying In Blizzard – Reed Covers His Tracks

Young and the Restless spoilers for the week of December 17 have many wondering if Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) survives. Reed Hellstrom (Tristan Lake Leabu) hits what he believes is a garbage barrel as he drives through a blizzard. This horrendous event takes place next week. Reed has no way of knowing it’s his grandmother he ran over. She’s left on the side of the road near death all alone.

Young and the Restless Spoilers Week of December 17

The week starts off with Nikki Newman still hiding the fact from her family that she’s had a sobriety slip. Although she did reach out for help and attend an AA meeting with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) apparently, this wasn’t enough help for her.

The AA meeting didn’t do the trick as Nikki continues to drink. With a blizzard blowing through Genoa City next week, an inebriated Nikki stumbles outside after getting into an argument. According to Y&R spoilers, it looks like she loses her footing near the road.

Nikki Newman Staggers Into Life-Altering Event

Just as Nikki Newman wanders out into the road, a car comes along and hits her. It’s her grandson Reed who is driving that car. Plus he’s got a suspended license. Despite Reed breaking the law, he’s doing so for a good reason. After a night out with Charlie Ashby (Noah Alexander Gerry), Reed could see his friend was in no shape to drive.

Despite a suspended license, Reed took the wheel instead of letting Charlie drive drunk. When it sounds as if they hit something, they stop. Young and the Restless spoilers say that nothing turns up after they take a quick look around. Then the teens continue on their way. But they missed something crucial.

Life and Death Struggle – Reed Hellstrom Cover-Up?

A passerby finds Nikki unresponsive alongside the road. And once at the hospital, emergency surgery is performed. The family and friends all gather waiting for news on her prognosis, suggest the Young and the Restless spoilers. Nate Hastings (Brooks Darnell) does the surgery, but it’s touch and go for Nikki Newman. He is not sure if she will pull through.

Reed Hellstrom didn’t find out right away who or what he hit that night, according to Young and the Restless spoilers.  He has no idea that he hit a person, nevermind Nikki until she’s fighting for her life. The week is full of sadness, wondering, and prayer for Nikki’s recovery. Soap She Knows suggests Reed and Charlie cover up their their actions. Although Y&R spoilers also indicate Reed Hellstrom will confess to running over Nikki.

Victoria Newman and Siblings Worry on Y&R

Billy Abbot (Jason Thompson) comforts Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). But she leans on Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) as well during this trying time. The Newmans gather as they worry about Nikki’s fate, according to the Young and the Restless spoilers. With Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) still mysteriously out of touch, worries escalate. Anna Hamilton (Loren Lott) pushes Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) too far.

A secret she keeps from Devon is more than likely self-serving rather than to protect Devon. Either way, it looks like Ana is at her limit with him. Mia Rosales (Noemi Gonzalez) remains a bone of contention between Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) and Arturo Rosales (Jason Canela). Young and the Restless spoilers indicate more hostility between the couple thanks to Mia.

Walls Come Down and Honesty Forges a New Path

Young and the Restless spoilers point to honesty actually improving Abby and Arturo’s relationship next week. Furthermore, Arturo lets some walls down, which might draw Abby in even closer.

Jack’s past stuns Kerry Johnson (Alice Hunter) when she finds out her love interest has an intriguing history. Next week, Kerry realizes Jack held out on her and what she discovers catches her by surprise.

Will Nikki Newman survive this holiday disaster and how long will it take Reed Hellstrom to come clean? Make sure to tune into CBS weekdays and watch these spoilers unfold on Y&R the week of December 17.
