‘Victor Newman’ (Eric Braeden) has done terrible things through the decades on ‘The Young and the Restless’. Now, his wife, daughter and son are all clamoring for him to be held accountable for more recent crimes. Yes, the ‘Mustache’ has been incarcerated before. But, what twist will be added to this developing plot as 2016 plays on?
This scribe recently provided cheeky information that intentionally connected ‘Victor’ to both of the leading candidates in the United States Presidential primary elections. Whether his next arrest will add to (or subtract from) his political cache is deeply subjective. Surely, staunch proponents of each ideology would insist that their favored representatives have done nothing wrong, or at least provably illegal (which is often the shady ground where scoundrels reside).
This time the key piece of evidence that will lead to ‘Victor’s’ arrest involves a dossier of dastardly deeds that was compiled by ‘Luca Santori’ (Miles Gaston Villanueva). Ironically, the head of Newman Enterprises invited ‘Luca’s’ questionable family into the cauldron. Rarely has the great man evidenced such misguided instincts and this time it may cost him his freedom indefinitely.
Of course, the ever-resilient ‘Victor Newman’ won’t slip into his jumpsuit and remain behind bars for the rest of his life. But, the length of his stay in a Midwestern pokey is yet to be determined. That’s where judgment will enter into the mix.
Of course, ‘Elise Moxley’ (Jensen Buchanan) reappeared in Genoa City last week. That character foreshadowing might indicate who’ll be the judge at ‘Victor’s’ hearings, or court case. Viewers know that her past connection to the accused was used as leverage against her when ‘Adam’s’ (Justin Hartley) sentence was dramatically reduced. So, they can easily decide if the ‘Black Knight’ will go to the personal extortion well one more time in order to rig the scales of justice.
