Young and the Restless spoilers state that Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) is worried about her relationship with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and possible backlash from Victor (Eric Braeden). She tries to talk to Jack about her concerns, telling him that they need to talk about the elephant in the room. Jack chuckles and asks whether the “elephant” has a mustache.
Jack then tries to reassure Nikki, saying that he is able to handle any backlash from Victor. He tries to reassure Nikki by saying that although some people will question his motives, she made the right decision about him and that their relationship is strong enough to survive.
Nikki appears reassured that Jack is being sincere and that he is not trying to use her to get back at Victor.
Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) is convinced that leaving Victor is the right decision. She is cultivating a romantic relationship with Jack although Nick (Joshua Morrow) had confronted her to voice his disapproval of the relationship. While Victor is upset about the developing romance between Nikki and Jack because Jack is his biggest rival in Genoa City, Nick is worried that Jack could be using the relationship as part of a revenge plot against Victor.
Nick voices his suspicion to Nikki and warns her to look out because Jack could be using her to get back at his old enemy Victor. Nikki dismisses Nick’s concerns lightly.
However, events could take a turn in the coming weeks that Nikki is not expecting.
Graham Bloodworth (Max Shippee) learns about Jack and Nikki’s cabin retreat from Gloria (Judith Chapman), and Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams) tells him that she fears that Jack could run into trouble dating Nikki. When Nikki and Jack meet at the Abbott cabin for some private time together, they kiss, and someone standing outside snaps a photo of them through the window.
The photographer might have been Graham. Regardless, the intention is to use the photo to stir trouble. Victor will be very upset indeed when he sees it.
