‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Will Nick Support Phyllis or His Family After Arrests?

Young and the Restless spoilers reveal Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) may have to side with either Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) or his family as alliances fall apart amid everyone’s arrest. Previously on the show, Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) finally confessed everything to Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso), resulting in the cover-up gang’s arrest. Now, will Nick find himself backed into a corner as he has to pick sides?

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Nick Newman Must Pick Side

Young and the Restless spoilers have shown things seem to just get worse and worse for Nick Newman. First, he learns that both Phyllis and Sharon, two ladies he had intimate relationships within the past year, have both been lying to him. They both were involved in JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) murder and eventual cover-up. Nick’s mom Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and his sister Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) were also involved.

Then, he realized that everyone he loved could end up in prison on Young and the Restless. When Sharon finally broke down to Rey and confessed what she and the others did, Rey and the police arrested the ladies one by one. Now, Nick finally realizes that all of his plans have fallen apart. He might not be able to protect anyone anymore.

Plus, Y&R spoilers indicate Phyllis Abbott is not going to make things easy. She refuses to go down for the crime, even if it means throwing all the other ladies under the bus in the process. Therefore, it looks like Nick Newman might have to choose a side. Will he stand by Phyllis, even if she turns on his mom and sister, or will he stand by his family?

Y&R Spoilers: Victor Warns Phyllis Abbott

Phyllis Abbott and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) never had the best of relationships on Young and the Restless, and it seems that relationship will just get worse. After learning that Phyllis is going to try to protect herself no matter what, Victor warns her. He lets her know that if she continues, she’ll have to deal with him.

Obviously, Victor is trying to protect his family as they face potential prison time. If Phyllis Abbott turns the tables on Nikki and Victoria, they could go to jail for much longer. However, Victor threatening Phyllis isn’t going to help matters. She’s not necessarily scared of the man. She hates him with all her guts.

Therefore, this may have consequences when it comes to her relationship with Nick Newman. Even though Nick and his father have had their issues in the past, they both recently seemed to form a bond as Nick tried to help his family. Could Phyllis and Victor’s new war put Nick in an uncomfortable position where he has to choose who he supports?

Young and the Restless: Nick and Phyllis Face Uncertain Future

Previous spoilers suggest that amid the murder reveal, Phyllis and Nick Abbott’s relationship would struggle. Which did happen when Nick first learned about everything. Nick and Phyllis Abbott argued over the huge secret that she kept from him.

However, it appears their relationship will only continue to struggle on Young and the Restless. Even if Nick Newman chooses to stick by her side, he’s going to have to field anger from his Y&R family. This will have some sort of effect on his relationship with her, whether he likes it or not. Plus, no matter how much he loves her, he’s not going to let her rat his mom and sister out.

Therefore, it seems like this couple has a long road ahead of them. Will Nick Newman choose to back Phyllis Abbott or his family? Or, will he try a more diplomatic approach and attempt to support both?
