CBS The Young and the Restless Spoilers here with some Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan), Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson), and Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) goodies!
The aftermath of the barfight has left some scars for Billy, but he’s moving on with help from Amanda. After bailing him out and acting as his lawyer, she informed him that it’d be in his best interest to hold off on going back to the bar until after they fix everything he had a hand in destroying. Of course, that means he’ll have to wait to see if he’s banned from going back, but he’s always been a gambling man, so 3-1 odds he’ll be allowed back under special conditions.
After being told everything is good between them, Billy heads off to see his brother, Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman), to inform him of his new life choices and ramification (black eye).
It wasn’t long before their exchange became heated, though mainly on Jack’s part. While Jack has reasons to questions Billy’s actions, the fact he refuses to accept Billy’s word on anything or expect anything but failure from him (mirroring Victoria’s belief) will be good story fodder going forward.
This is shaping up to be a cool storyline that has two ways to go. With Jason Thompson expected to leave the role shortly, this give the character plenty of opportunities to find himself and become a better person, and more importantly, his own person. Of course, most likely, this will be a storyline to show why no one should ever deviate from the norm. Of the two, the one where he finds himself and grows would be more compelling and interesting as they bring in Billy’s old actor. It’d be a cool way to usher in a new era, if the actor switch is true.
Victoria wants blood
Okay, maybe not in the literal sense. Not yet, at least, but we at CBS The Young and the Restless Spoilers are willing to bet it’s only a matter of time.
It started out ominously as Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) decided it’d be best to inform Victoria of what Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) had shared with her about Eric. Nikki’s sympathy for Victoria’s pain would be heartwarming is she hadn’t appeared to relish sharing dirt on Billy, even if it’s inaccurate. Seriously, does she have to look so pleased to be proven right and have Billy out of Victoria’s life? Guess being married to Victor has sucked a good amount of the empathy out of her even for her daughter’s sake.
Victoria took it in stride, since she already knew, but she wanted to see the picture Nikki offered for closure. In fact, Victoria’s fascination with the picture is enough to pull Nikki out of her self-obsessed elation, but that didn’t stop the tough love as she tried to backstep her initial push against Billy to say this is Billy’s problem and not Victoria. Victoria, she said, should focus on the company.
Victoria’s dismissal of her was just as cold and shows that she’s her father’s daughter. Nikki didn’t look as certain leaving as she’d been at first, but what else could she do?
Once alone, Victoria focused on the picture, seemingly plotting her revenge on Amanda for being a homewrecker.
When she finally does confront Amanda, Victoria was taken back when Amanda admitted she didn’t know about Billy’s demons. She even tried to alleviate Victoria’s accusations of being an enabler by pointing out she had told Billy to talk with Victoria about it all, but he chose not to.
Victoria, for her part, refused to believe Amanda’s claims that they were just friends, and her bailing him out of jail was solely a lawyer/client relationship. While Victoria may feel justified, the fact that she’s so quick to believe the worst about Billy, just like Jack, will probably lead to a bad ending for all involved.
While it’s been stated several times before, this has the potential to be one of the best storylines this year. Of course, CBS The Young and the Restless Spoilers will be here every step of the way. Don’t forget to grab something to drink and some popcorn. We’re going to need it.
