police. Approaching Victoria at the hospital, Noah is about to tell her he hit Billy when Billy goes into cardiac arrest and chaos unfolds. Sensing that his grandson is in trouble, Victor (Eric Braeden) drags Noah aside and says “whatever you were going to say, don’t. It won’t do a damn thing to save him.” However, Noah can’t keep quiet, confessing his culpability to Victor who advises him to stay silent to avoid the damaging repercussions of the incident. Reluctantly, Noah agrees for Victoria’s sake, but warns that Marisa also knows the truth, forcing Victor to threaten her to keep her mouth shut. Later, under instructions from Victor, Noah and Marisa destroy and replace the tyres on Noah’s car to erase any offending evidence linking Noah to the crime.
Despite erasing the evidence, Noah remains anxious about what he’s done, especially as Paul and the police dig deeper into the incident speculating that the guilty party may have covered their tracks to avoid exposure. Noah leans on Marisa and Victor for support but his guilt pulsates when a suspicious Luca (Miles Gaston Villanueva) corners Marisa and tricks her into revealing the crime cover-up. He knows he has the ammunition to destroy the Newmans but Marisa warns him that if he uses it he’ll lose her for good.
After Billy’s (now Jason Thompson) condition rapidly deteriorates and it appears he won’t survive, Noah breaks down at the thought of being Billy’s killer. He cryptically con des in Adam (Justin Hartley) about how he coped with hitting and killing Delia and eeing the scene. Shaken by Adam’s answers, Noah goes on a drunken bender, self-destructively determined to blot out the nightmare that lies ahead of him. TVS JUN 13-JUN 27, 2016
GUILTY PARTY Noah (Robert Adamson) wasn’t aware that he ran down Billy, until Marisa tells him. Then Victor says he should get rid of any evidence.
