'The Young And The Restless' Spoilers: Did Victor frame Billy in Adam's shooting? Lily and Amanda face off
In a new promotional clip for 'The Young And The Restless', Victor Newman of all people pays Billy a visit in prison and muses over some exceedingly alarming words of suspicion
Billy Abbott has a trinity of women vouching for his innocence: his ex, his current beau and his prospective love interest — all three standing by his side. But with Billy getting arrested a second time, some uncomfortable truths about his predicament come to light that completely change the game for the royals of Genoa City.
In a new promotional clip for 'The Young And The Restless', Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) of all people pays Billy (Jason Thompson) a visit in prison and muses over some exceedingly alarming words on the suspicion of his son Adam's (Mark Grossman) shooting on the Newman family patriarch himself. While Billy is being charged with shooting Adam in an incident where the bullet ended up hitting Chance Chancellor (Justin Gaston) instead, could it be possible that Victor was behind the gun all along?
Spoilers for the upcoming December 14 episode of the CBS soap opera hint that along with his lawyer Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan), with whom Billy almost sparked an affair, Lily Winters (Christel Khalil), his current lady, and Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), his ex-wife, are all siding with him. All three women believe in Billy's claims of being innocent in the crime of Adam's mysterious shooting, thus making the man slightly hopeful about being acquitted of everything.
Perhaps it made Billy too confident, if not hopeful, and thus propelled him to barge into Alyssa Montalvo's door at the hotel after learning she was the mysterious witness testifying against him on Adam and Chance's behalf.
Raging and banging on her door, Billy was found creating a scene by Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) who took him into custody once again and this is where suspicion arises against Victor. In a newly released promo, Victor can be seen threatening Billy with the eventual aftermath for all that's awaiting him in this life. Clad in orange overalls, Billy inside lockup is greeted by Victor, who seems to have come for a visit only to mock his former son-in-law.
The clip shows Victor musing “You didn’t think you were going to get off this easy, did you?" This enrages Billy further and he lashes out at the older man screaming “You set me up! You set me up!!” Practically fuming at The Moustache, Billy huffs "This is it, huh, this is your payback?” But Victor is undeterred and doesn't even flinch.
Calm and poised with smug condescension, the older man proclaims "I’m just happy you’re where you deserve to be." This is the first hint of a possibility that Victor might have something to do with Billy's arrest. He is still pissed about the way Billy and Victoria's relationship ended, spoiling every chance of reconciliation he had with his daughter.
He is also aware of the many times Billy has openly threatened to kill Adam and ruin his life, thus earning The Moustace's anger more. How dare Billy get away with a nice life after hurting all the Newman progenies, right? That's what Victor thinks too, as the older man follows up his verdict, noting "You thought you had a future, it’s right here. You caused so much damage. You’ve hurt my daughter, you’re hurting my grandchildren."
While the possibility of Alyssa being behind everything is just as rife, there's yet another development that catches our intrigue. Amanda and Lily are about to discuss the details of Billy's case and inevitably the topic of Billy's relationship with Lily is going to come up.
Spoilers for the episode suggest Amanda is going to get a bit too intrusive, and while one might argue this could all be because she is his lawyer and needs to know every minute detail of the ongoing of his life, there's no denying that the two were almost more than just professional acquaintances. Whether Amanda will interrogate Lilly on her relationship with Billy purely out of her professional interest or personal is something we are all curious to find out.
The last thing Billy needs is a catfight over him, though something tells us the devil-may-care man might not mind that too much.
'The Young and the Restless' airs on weekdays at 12.30 pm on CBS.
