The Young and the Restless spoilers for Monday, July 16 reveal stunning news for many Genoa City residents. Phyllis learns the truth about Billy’s lies, Jack finds out about his paternity, and Victor gets a shock when he confronts J.T.
Well, it was only a matter of time for Billy (Jason Thompson). Now, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) hired a private investigator, and she learns exactly what Billy’s been up to lately — gambling, according to She Knows Soaps. The gambling addict fell into his old bad habits, and he’s managed to really mess things up in a short amount of time. In fact, he lost a very visible and expensive company asset — “Jaboat.”
While Phyllis may feel relieved when she realizes Billy didn’t cheat on her, chances are, she won’t love what’s going on. In fact, she will probably be furious that Summer (Hunter King) is involved, and the fact that Billy and Summer have gone behind her back will undoubtedly feel like a betrayal.
Meanwhile, Victor (Eric Braeden) rushed off to meet J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) alone. However, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) knew about it, and despite her father’s wishes, she texted somebody the details. There’s a possibility of the meeting Victor and J.T. thought was one on one could end up being more crowded than they initially planned.
Things take a stunning turn during the confrontation, and it appears as if somebody at the location grabs a gun, but who? Nearly everybody has a motive. First off, J.T. already tried to kill Victor two times. Secondly, Victor vowed to end the war with J.T., and killing him would stop it for sure. Thirdly, if Nick (Joshua Morrow) happens to show up, there’s no telling what lengths he’ll take. He’s got a bone to pick with J.T. over how he treated Victoria.
Of course, there’s also the possibility that Nick has a bone to pick with his old man. What better way to rattle The Moustache than to pretend to be the man who killed his father twice and leak details about Victor’s health? After all, those details and Victor’s meltdown on live TV directly led to Nick regaining custody of Christian. Oh, the tangled webs they weave!
Finally, Jack (Peter Bergman) receives paternity news from the bone that Kyle (Michael Mealor) illegally grabbed when he dug up Phillip Chancellor’s grave. Unfortunately, the news in the envelope makes Jack unbelievably unhappy, but Jill (Jess Walton) felt relieved. Now Jack’s back to the drawing board, and sadly, Dina (Marla Adams) is no help these days. Jack’s not even sure what step to take next at this point.
