Are J.T.’S Days Numbered?
THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Victor has never been cowed by life’s difficulties. This week, despite being paralyzed from head to toe and robbed of his ability to communicate, The Mustache reaches deep into his soul to find a way to take J.T. down!
The In Depth Story: As the week begins, Nick puts aside his past acrimony with his father to sit vigil at Victor’s hospital bed. In fact, in a rare moment of empathy, Nick locks eyes with his dad to tell him that he can only imagine how frustrating it has been for someone like Victor to be virtually frozen, unable to move or speak! Nick then adds that he finds the situation frustrating on a different level: that the police are focused on Jack as the culprit of the crime.
While Nick admits that the GCPD’S suspicion is reasonable, given the long- r unning feud between the two men, he’s not buying that his onetime stepfather was responsible for pushing Victor down the staircase. Instead, Nick says, he believes that the attempted murderer is really a murderess — the woman that he saw racing out of Vic- tor’s hospital room!
Making a heartfelt confession, Nick places his hand on Victor’s and admits that he is grateful that the mystery woman didn’t succeed in her quest because his dad keeps Genoa City interesting.
Of course, things get a lot more interesting in that moment when Victor’s hand suddenly moves under Nick’s! As his son watches, Victor
slowly begins to trace the letters “J” and “T” on the bed linens! Unfortunately for Victor, Nick misinterprets the meaning behind the letters, believing his dad is asking for the whereabouts of J. T. and Victoria. When Nick reminds Victor that the couple left for a Hawaiian vacation, his father becomes increasingly agitated. Again misunderstanding, Nick assures his dad that he’ll tr y calling Victoria and J. T. later, promising to get what Victor wants from J.T.
Unbeknownst to Nick, though, what Victor wants is to send J.T. to hell… or, at least, to prison! As Nick prepares to leave, Victor proves just how determined he is to make J.T. pay, and struggles to overcome his frozen state. Despite being bound to a hospital bed, will the mogul succeed in stopping J. T. before somebody else’s life is endangered… specifically, Victoria’s?
Victor can be so intimidating, he doesn’t even need one of those big foam fingers to get his point across!
