'The Young and the Restless' Spoilers: Who tried to kill Adam and who's framing Billy? Eyewitness revealed
Billy finds out who the eyewitness testifying against him is and his immediate reaction makes things doubly difficult for him to prove he's not guilty
Looks like Billy Abbot (Jason Thompson) is on a downward spiral and he is not helping his case at all. Spoilers for 'The Young and the Restless' episode for December 11 finally reveal who most likely tried to shoot Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) a few weeks ago, and why they are framing Billy for it. But the discovery comes through Billy himself and his immediate reaction to find out who the possible shooter is, ruined the case even more for him. Read on to find out what to expect in the upcoming episode of the CBS soap opera.
Among the many glaring revelations to come in the December 11 episode, Billy himself is on the shady end as he finally spells to Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan) that he was very much present at the site of the shooting the day it happened. The reason? Billy had gone to check up on his ex, Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan), who is now with Adam, thus leading the other man to creep out of his own office. Billy had seen Chelsea leave the building where Adam was keeping her, and therefore he too must have been recorded hovering around the crime scene on security footage.
As if this didn't just make the whole situation plenty worse, Billy also finds out who the actual shooter could have been. According to spoilers, there's a high chance that Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind) could be at the center of it all, trying to exact revenge for Billy publishing the article that ruined her life. The other, stronger suspect is Alyssa Montalvo (Maria DiDomenico) - Adam's BFF from the past - who tried to kill him and is now getting away with it by staging everything against Billy, who has a bit of a reputation for trying to get rid of Adam.
Billy has tried to kill Adam in the past, thus he is the perfect scapegoat for the crime. But why is Adam's BF trying to kill him you ask? Well, Adam got away with killing her father, so this is two birds with a stone. Although Billy thought he and Alyssa were friends with a common enemy so far, personal vendetta is a much stronger force than allies, and Alyssa either acted on the same or got someone else to get the job done for her. Things went wrong when the bullet hit a cop, aka Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz) instead, and now she's probably on the run and trying to pull this whole facade of bearing witness. For all we know, Alyssa would come clean as the shooter and pin it on Billy's friendship with her, thus framing him as the mastermind all along anyway.
And Billy too is the right kind of hothead to pin this blame on to. Spoilers suggest that when he learns that Alyssa is putting up at the same hotel and has intimated Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) that she bears eye witness to Billy shooting Adam, he barges into her door and bangs real hard, screaming and shouting, causing quite a stir. Unfortunately, all of this happens as Rey is in the lobby and Billy gets arrested once again. This is worse is that he already has his DNA on the weapon and charges are leveled against him. Let's add to that intimidation of a witness and it's a real pickle. Wonder how Billy could ever get out of it!
'The Young and the Restless' airs on weekdays at 12.30 pm only on CBS.
