‘Young and the Restless’: Victor Alive & Reveals Fake Death to Nikki

Young and the Restless spoilers pick up with Victor Newman‘s “death” on Wednesday’s episode. This has fans asking is Eric Braeden leaving Y&R? The answer is no.  Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) finds out soon that her hubby’s alive. This will be a huge relief although she’s upset to be fooled.

Victor Newman wanted to pull off this scam to punish his resurrected son. So, he couldn’t warn anyone. It’s just The Mustache and Dr Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) in on it, at first. But that changes soon on the CBS soap. Watch to see how Nikki Newman reacts to the shocking truth.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Victor Newman Doesn’t Want Nikki Newman at Risk

Y&R spoilers predict that Victor Newman’s desperate to get Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) back on the right track. So, letting everyone think Victor died is part of the plan. But, he can’t hurt Nikki Newman while trying to save Adam.

Nikki’s got two big risk factors. One is her Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The other is her alcoholism. Victor Newman doesn’t want to upset his wife so much that her MS comes out of remission. Or that she falls off the wagon.

Last week and at the start of this one, it was the big Mustache collapse scene. All of the family (and many fans) thought Victor Newman died. Either Nikki Newman didn’t know the secret yet – or she put on a great performance for the family, hint Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Nikki Newman Stunned to Learn Victor’s Alive

Young and the Restless spoilers tell us Victor Newman doesn’t want his wife kept in the dark. Of course, Nikki will hate that Victor upset her and the kids with this stunt. But, she’ll be forgiving because she’s thrilled to find out he’s alive.

No doubt, Victor Newman figured out his meds had been swapped. And the likely culprit was either Adam or Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford). Victor’s tired of Adam running amok and needs to shock his youngest son to get him back in line.

So, Victor has to explain all that to Nikki Newman after revealing he’s alive. Once Nikki learns the secret, she’s part of the plan. She can be Victor’s eyes and ears to let him know if it’s working on Adam, say Young and the Restless spoilers.

Young and the Restless: Will Victor’s Plan Work?

Y&R spoilers indicate Nikki Newman’s stunned that Victor dying was a ruse. But she also knows that Adam’s out of control and is ripping the family apart with his actions. So, no doubt, she sees the method to her hubby’s madness with this faked death ruse.

But if you’re one asking is Eric Braeden leaving Young and the Restless – again, the answer is no. Victor Newman is not dead and Nikki finds out soon. She’s the perfect partner to help carry out this con and get the results he wants.

It should be a while longer before the rest of the family realizes the patriarch’s alive. But to Victor, reassuring his wife Nikki Newman’s the most important thing. So, watch to see this unfold on the CBS sudser this week.
