New The Young and the Restless spoilers for May sweeps season show that Victoria is going to face some problems in her career.

Billy (Jason Thompson) recently asked Victoria (Amelia Heinle) to marry him, and while it was still quite soon after everything had gone down with J.T. (Thad Luckinbill), they seem to be doing well together. It looks like Victoria might say yes to Billy eventually, and they could have their chance in the future.

Josh Griffin, the new head writer for the show, discussed what he has in store for viewers this May with Soaps In Depth. He revealed that while Victoria is back on track emotionally, her professional life may not see such smooth sailing. Although she had a brief rivalry with Ashley (Eileen Davidson) last year, Victoria has been able to prove herself to her father at Newman Enterprises. In fact, her brother Nick (Joshua Morrow) started a rival company, Dark Horse, and her sister Abby (Melissa Ordway) left Newman to work there.

Griffen is quoted as saying, “Victoria has been enjoying success at Newman without interference from Nick or Abby. [But] her moment in the spotlight will be short-lived when her position there is threatened. This will lead Victoria to show everyone that she is indeed Victor Newman’s daughter!”

It sounds like Victoria could find herself embroiled in a battle at work, something which Billy may not appreciate. Her attention will be divided, and that could cause problems with her home life. Griffin did not mention Billy at all in his discussion of what is coming for Victoria in May.

According to The Inquisitr, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) gets Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) to track down Victor (Eric Braeden) — and his secret — in Las Vegas. It seems safe to say that whatever rocks Nikki’s world will end up rocking Victoria’s as well. There’s a good chance that Adam (Mark Grossman) returns to Genoa City — and the family business — something which could shake things up for Victoria at Newman Enterprises.

She’s always fighting to prove to Victor that she’s worthy to carry on his legacy, and of all Victor’s children, Victoria is likely the one he trusts to keep Newman Enterprises running when he moves into full retirement. That is Victoria’s plan, and her presumed-dead brother’s unexpected return will throw a kink into her plans.

The biggest question is whether Victoria continues with Billy, or throws all of her focus into work.
