    Victor is Arrested!

    Thursday, January 03 2008
    Victor returns to work. Sharon commits to her marriage, but is later spied by Jack as she meets with Brad. After a bonding session, Heather and Maggie learn they have new evidence that will allow them to arrest Victor!


    Victor arrives at Newman Enterprises and greets Neil and Nick who are surprised to see him. Victor explains he got a little stir crazy at the house. As he goes to his office, Neil asks Nick if he and his father are still having problems. Nick replies, "How's Karen?" Later, Victor instructs Neil to sue Chancellor Industries over the shoddy construction materials. Neil and Nick both feel it's a mistake, but an angry Victor tells them both that settling isn't in his vocabulary! As Neil goes to the break room and chats with Karen, he glances into the hall and notices Cane, who has arrived for a meeting. Neil stops him, saying, "Cane. I wouldn't go in there if I were you." Cane sighs. Neil explains to him that Victor feels there is culpability on the side of Chancellor Industries and is considering counter-suing. Cane rolls his eyes. He says he was at Clear Springs - it was the explosion. Neil says he is just carrying out orders. Cane leaves.



    Maggie arrives at Heather's office. They discuss the case against Victor. Heather says the blood in the gym bag is key - the autopsy showed Ji Min had broken vessels in places like the nose, which bleed profusely. She theorizes that Victor probably wiped up the blood and stashed whatever he used in his gym bag, thereby transferring the blood DNA to the inside of the bag. Maggie comments that she is eager to move on this, but the case is still largely circumstantial. Heather, sighing, ends up confiding in Maggie that she is suffering insomnia due to the stress and anger she feels about finding out Paul is her father. As she explains that it is dredging up bad stuff about her childhood with her stepfather, Maggie invites her to keep talking and they decide to go for a walk.



    J.T. arrives at Crimson Lights and approaches Paul saying he needs to know what he can tell him about David Chow. Paul asks who wants him to pursue this. J.T. hesitates to name Victor, but Paul guesses. J.T. tries to defend Victor's reasons for investigating David, but Paul warns him that Victor has no right to dig in David's background. He warns J.T. that Victor Newman is ruthless, "Don't get in the middle of that divorce!" J.T. listens but admits he intends to continue investigating David. Paul tells him to be very careful - Victor has a lot at stake! J.T. leaves and Heather and Maggie come in. Paul says he was just headed out, but he could stay. Heather and Maggie brush him off, saying they have police business to discuss and he reluctantly leaves. Maggie says, "I think he'd do just about anything to stay here." Heather says to herself, "He's about twenty years too late." Once they are seated with coffee, Jack crosses their path, warning them jovially to act fast against Victor before he goes off to the south of France! Suddenly, Jack gets a call and arranges a meeting for one hour's time - at the Club!



    Over breakfast at the Abbott household, Sharon and Jack fill Ashley in on Victor being investigated for murder. Suddenly, Noah comes down and asks Sharon if they'll be returning to Jack's house after school. Sharon replies, "Yes. We'll be coming back to Jack and to this house. And we'll stay." After Jack has left with Noah, Ashley and Sharon talk. Ashley has a heart-to-heart with Sharon, telling her that she is Jack's lifeline. She urges Sharon to fully commit herself to the marriage. Sharon assures her sister-in-law that that is her intention. Once Ashley is out of the room, Sharon calls Brad and asks him to meet her for lunch. Brad says, "Sure. In an hour at the GCAC. Have you made a decision?" Sharon says she has - that's what she wants to talk to him about. As she hangs up, Ashley comes in and tells Sharon to remember to call Jack on his stuff - and not to give him any wiggle room. Ashley then leaves to go see Victor.



    Victor has Nick alone in his office and accuses him of taking Nikki's side in their feud. Nick tells his father he is to blame because he called in the loan. Victor continues to refuse to back down and Nick walks out saying, "Have it your way." J.T. arrives and tells Victor that he hasn't been able to find any dirt on David Chow, but he'll keep looking. Sensing Victor's bad mood, J.T. gives him a new photo of Reed and suggests that Victor go to see him at the hospital, knowing it will put Victor in a better frame of mind. Once J.T. has gone, the door opens and Ashley enters. She and Victor embrace happily and catch up. They wryly discuss Jack's role in Victor being implicated in Ji Min's death. Later, all alone in his office, Victor thinks back to his conversation with Nikki during the storm and becomes sentimental as he looks at the photo of Reed.



    Lily and Devon are in his office when Cane stops into the doorway. Cane wishes her luck on the Fresh Faces of Jabot contest and Lily flushes with pleasure from his attention - this does not go unnoticed by Devon. As she and Devon approach the elevator to leave, Cane calls out, "There goes Lily, the Fresh Face of Jabot, and she even speaks French!" At Crimson Lights, Devon questions Lily about her feelings for Cane. She gives nothing away. Later, as she sits by herself, Cane comes in and as he watches her from across the room, she pretends not to notice until he leaves. Meanwhile, back at work, Devon is approached by Neil, who wants to know what's on his mind. Devon says he had lunch with Lily and she is still hung up on Cane. Neil isn't pleased and he suggests Devon go ahead and set her up with some other guys.



    Back at her office, Heather takes a call telling her that the surveillance discs from the GCAC were tampered with. She shares this with Maggie, adding that everything after Jack's departure from Ji Min's hotel room has been erased! Heather says she has her computer guys working to find out what was erased. Not long after, Maggie takes a call. She tells Heather that Jack Abbott was not the last person to see Ji Min alive - Victor Newman was! Now they have enough for an arrest warrant.



    At the Club, Sharon sits down with Brad and tells him that she has decided to stay with Jack. Brad's face shows his disappointment. Sharon assures him she has thought about this for a long time. Brad suggests she should have thought about it longer - he's a lying, cheating egomaniac. Sharon says she and Jack will build a life together - besides she's not perfect either. Brad is sure it won't work, especially if she's doing it for Noah's sake! Sharon says if they are going to continue to be friends they will not be discussing this subject in the future! Brad confesses that he cares so much about her. He reaches out and covers her hand with his, saying, "I just want you to be happy." Neither Sharon nor Brad notice that Jack has walked in and is seeing the hand-holding. He then leaves.



    Back at Newman, Victor is in the hallway when Ashley returns with some food. She says she can't stay, and they gaze into one another's eyes, saying how much they've missed each other. They kiss and she leaves. Suddenly, out of the other elevator comes Maggie, "Victor Newman. I have a warrant for your arrest!"

    Neil needs to stop trying to protect Lily; it's going to backfire in his face. She's strongminded like her mother and he needs to remember that. He doesn't want to see her hurt; she has to learn for herself. I don't believe Victor killed Ji Min and if he did, it was because he was trying to save him and may not remember anything.

    Posted by Turkeyteeth at Thursday, January 03 2008 02:58 AM

    No, I don't think Victor killed Ji Minn. I think it was David Chow. He is doing everything to get Nikki and the Newman's money. There is something about Maggie I just do not like. She has a major attitude problem. Heather's is just immature. You are right Momschild, Neil does need to quit protecting Lily. She is a divorced woman now, but she is still a child. She will do the opposite of what her Dad says. Sharon and Brad....what a pair. Maybe they both deserve each other. Actions speak louder than words.
    Today's episode sounds like I will be watching it today.

    John makes me sick, he is dead and should stay dead. John lost that Co. many times and Jack always got it back for him doing whatever he had to do. Now Jack is to turn over half of the money to John's pop tart wife, who only married him for money. Half to Gloworm and the other half split three ways between the kids. That's real fair. John had no brains when it came to picking a wife.
    Glad Victor is getting some payback, but I think David killed Ji Min and is setting Victor up. Do you remember when Victor locked in his basement his exwife's boyfriend and gave him rats to eat? Nothing happened to Victor. Payday is 20 to 30 years late for you old boy. If Gloworm gets that money from Jack, it will be another 10 years before I'll watch Y&R again.

    One more thing. I think Brad is the real father of Reed, not J.T. Again thanks to Victor. Victor couldn't run over Brad like he can J.T.

    A New Home For The Great Victor Newman?
    Wow Victor, is going to prison!
    Maybe he had a seizure and grabbed Ji_Min Kim so he wouldn't fall.
    Causing an accidental death to happen to Ji_Min Kim.

    Gaga For Cane!
    Lily is going for a perfect Cane seeing record!
    Wonder if there's an award for this, lol!
    Father Neil and son are going to play a game of match making #2 again.
    This father and son team, better watch out for another runaway marriage from Lily to Cane!
    Hey Neil, remember your daughter's first runaway marriage to Daniel?
    Oh, what's a father and son to do?

    No Help For Bradski!
    Phyllis not wanting to help Bradski out to break up Sharon and Jackieboy's marriage, wow!
    Maybe Phyllis has learned something about herself, while she was in jail.
    Nice blow off, Phyllis dear towards Bradski!

    aqua23 -- I agree with you about John. He was an old fool when it came to choosing a wife. Gloria only wanted his money. Sure she feel in love with him but who wouldn't have. Why would John leave her half when he has two childred who spent their life fulfilling his dream "Jabot". Gloria doesn't deserve any of John's estate.

    Victor is my man but it's about time he's got some payback for all the crap he's done over the years,

    Neil is not stupid man therfore, the writer needs to stop giving him stupid storylines. Neil would not interfer in his daughters love life considering how it the first time he did that it turned into a marriage.

    aqua23 I agree, John should have shown better judgment with his will, he should have split the money equally between Glovorkian and the kids, but remember, it's not split three ways between the kids it's four, Ash, Jack, Traci, and Billy, Jack told him to write all four into his "New Will". So she gets half, and they split the other half four ways... That is sooo unfair. She doesn't need the money anyway, oh, well, yeah, now that Slinthery Slinky Bardwell's gonna become her husband, she's going to need every dime she can get now. The only good thing about the SL now is that SHE'S GETTING IT BACK JUST AS BAD AS THE OLD GARDEN TOOL DISHES IT OUT!!!

    Sharon, Sharon, Sharon.... HEAVY SIGH.... She just blew it with Jack. Sneaking around to see Brad, for whatever reason, why couldn't she just tell him on the phone she was staying with Jack, H@LL half the town eats or works out at the club, and the other half lives there, did she really not realize she'd be seen and it would get back to Jack, no one can keep a secret in GC, and did she not realize Jack might walk in??? What a dim wit. Hard to believe Phyllis is smarter about Cabana Boy than Sharon is, but, hey, Phyllis' wish for Jack to be happy with Sharon, IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!!! When will Sharon ever learn???

    I think David killed Ji Min...he is up to no good. And question when is victoria going to wake up?

    Posted by DMPLES at Thursday, January 03 2008 06:42 AM

    I can't do this anymore. You really got to be kidding me. Do the police on this storyline ever arrest anybody that actually commits crime. Victor! please. Well I guess I will catch in a month or two.

    aqua23,sleekpat, and others, I agree that John did not have any sense about women. He should have learned his lesson after Jill. For being a smart businessman; he had as much sense as a box or rocks. Glo Shunk had a millon reasons to fall in love with John. She does not deserve any of the estate. Hope Jeffie really sticks the knives into her and makes her squirm.50 thousand this week, another 50 thou in a few weeks. Stick it to her Jeffie.
