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!
