Prison leaves a lot to be desired for Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) as he serves out his 10-year sentence. He misses his family most, but Victor has a plot to fix that: by framing his son Adam (Justin Hartley) for murder. On Friday 17 March from his heroic hospital bed, Victor tells Adam that if he’s a good boy and goes to work for Newman Enterprises, pages from Sage’s (Kelly Sullivan) journal will reappear to prove Adam innocent of murdering Constance Bingham (Sally Kellerman). Thanks a lot, diabolical dad!
But it all goes south when Victor’s secret accomplice Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson), who’s out to get Adam for running down and killing little Delia (Sophie Pollono) in 2013, refuses to cough up the diary page on Thursday 23 March. Adam realises that he’s going to jail and he spends one final heartbreaking night with this wife Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and son Connor (Gunner and Ryder Gadbois) before he’s sentenced to 30 years in Walworth prison on Monday 27 March. And on Tuesday 28 March, viewers will be glued to their TV screens as Victor rolls up to greet his son behind bars…
“Welcome home. Kind of funny, right? This is what you’ve been waiting for,” Adam tells Victor bitterly. “This is the moment you wanted me back behind bars. You just stand there and soak it in like an art exhibit. It’s a poetic kind of revenge though, really. All because you wanted me to pay.” But Victor admits that while he wanted Adam to sweat a little, he didn’t intend for Adam to wind up in prison with him. All that Victor can promise his decidedly sceptical son now is, “When I get out of here, I will see to it that you get out of here.” In the meantime, Adam, welcome to the new Newman “big house”. NB!

Victor’s plot lands his son Adam (main) in prison with him.
