I'm sorry, but I don't get it, first of all we know they take these previews out of context 90% of the time, we don't know what brought this on, all we know is the little they showed us.
Second, it has been so long, don't tell me, that if Adam hadn't wanted to tell Victoria, he wouldn't have told her already,(it is a little late to make a deal, don't you think) what kind of deal can Billy really make, Adam has kept his mouth shut for over a month already, and Billy has already tried to get Victoria to back off of Adam and Newman, and she won't even talk to him about it.
Since Victor wants Vicki to play nice, maybe she wants Adam to trust her, this would be playing right into her hands (not saying this is what is happening), just asking, why are people so ready to throw rocks at Billy, before we see what is really going on.
I don't see this as throwing Victoria under the bus, how is this harming her, I don't see it. He doesn't say, he is taking Adam's side on it, all he is saying, is, he doesn't want Adam to talk.
