What is Victor's plan for Adam?

When Michael was visiting Victor in jail today, Victor stated his plan was already working in regards to Adam.

I cannot think of how installing Adam as CEO of Newman Enterprises plays into Victor’s plan?

Any guesses anyone?

I am not for sure… but I will tell you one thing…this ONE UPPING each other is getting old. It is past time for the writers to find a way forward for the Newman s… I mean… give it a rest already!

I truly hope what ever scheme Victor is cooking up back fires and Adam is a real force to be reckoned with. He is smart and intelligent and I hope he keeps his head in the game and not try to dismantle or destroy anyone. Really take Newman Enterprises to new heights.

Wonder if Victor wants to have the stock price crash? Victor can buy back the stock, and make the company private again. Then there is the extra bonus that he ruins Adam’s reputation, while getting Adam investigated by the SEC once again.

I hope Adam is not foolish enough to trust Victor. I think he will be one or two steps ahead of Victor after the Hawaii/Skye episodes, and hope Adam sets himself up with protection against Victor.

Maybe when Victor gets out of jail, he will focus on Nikki and getting her sober, or maybe he will become incapacated with a stroke or heart attack or something that keeps Adam in control of Newman. Wishful thinking???

I don’t believe it’s a plan against Adam. I’ve been thinking for a few weeks now that it’s a plan that includes Adam’s help. The plan is to take back NE and to get revenge on those that were responsible for NE going public. Adam was the only one that did not have a part in NE going public. Deacon is in on it also. Diane is in on it also or was. If she is dead it’s because they didn’t count on Patty showing up at the very end of the night and murdering her. It’s more likely the body is Sky Lochart after plastic surgery from the volcano that looked like Diane and ended up dead. It’s possibly Victor remarries Diane coming up in the next few weeks.

Adam is luring Tucker and Jack in and plans to get them in trouble with the SEC in order to get back Jabot. Jack used Abby to start the lawsuit. That is why Victor sought legal guardianship of Kyle. And Diane agreed to it because she was a part of the plan from the beginning. The whole Victor Sharon thing is all about revenge on Nick for his part in causing NE to go public. And when Jack and Tucker are brought up on SEC charges they’re stock will plummet. That’s when Adam will buy Jabot back and return it to Katherine as planned long ago.

Victor is going to take away the things his enemies love most, as they did NE from him.

Billy from Victoria
Kyle from Jack
Sharon and faith from Nicholas
Abby he never blamed, that was Jack manipulating her

if victor is doing all this to get back at those who made him take ne public then i really hate him. i relly hope he is setting up adam to finally bring him down. to marry sharon to hurt nick well thats just wrong. victor has try to teach his kids lesson after lesson when he thinks they wronged him. it always back fires somehow. he needs to stop doing it. i know when he dies he will try to control them from the grave. in his head he thinks by controling them he is showing his love for them. he should know they are like him . the more someone trys to control them the more they buck just like victor. he hates to be control. so let victor set adam up only leave his other kids alone.because if he is trying to get back at them then he will be alone. he will only drive them away and maybe for good.

How exactly is Victor gonna do all this when he’s serving a 25 yr sentence for murder?? As for Kyle he didn’t ask for guardianship Diane came to him with that. It was part of the plan with Adam…

Very interesting theory. I’ve wonder about Adam luring in Tucker and Jack, especially Jack. But I’ve never considered him working for Victor. It seemed that Adam has been spinning a web from the day he restarted the Newman Fund. From that perspective Victor is the main target of Adam’s, but it wouldn’t be necessarily exclude Adam from doing the old man’s dirty work. We know Adam is with Diane’s murder wrap.

Diane’s murder is getting so convoluted. It would actually make sense that Victor whisked her away, and staged the whole mess. Then the TPTB can bring an age appropriate Diane back.

Very interesting theory indeed!

I think Adam certainly benefited from buying stocks at a low price, but wasn’t Tucker in a coma when this happened and Katherine went against his wishes to buy any NE stock. Maybe he had to buy it at an increased cost, but I don’t remember seeing anything like that.

I think Victor is plotting against Adam. And he has him right where he wanted him. I think Adam will get royally screwed. We don’t know what plan is, but Victor is still getting things done while in jail and prison.

I think bringing Adam is smoke screen for Victor using Adam to get Jabot and will make Adam the bad guy. Its all a plan to get even with Jack. and I won’t feel sorry for Jack at all for the way he turned on Kay and caused her stroke.

you could be right; I don’t have a clue to what Victor is up to with Adam except to blame “something” on him.
I think Tucker voting with Adam has nothing to do with Victor; Tucker never liked Victor. I think Tucker knows what kind of person Adam is, and that he really hates his Dad, and Tucker might feel Adam will side with him to do something underhanded where Newman Enterp. will loose B-O-N to Tucker Enterp.

I cant figure it out what Victor is up to, I do know he is going to marry Sharon and that is also part of his plan which I cannot figure out for the life of me.

Whatever Victor has planned for Adam is not bad enough for me… dig deep down and find your meantest bone Vic and take care of this punk…he is nothing but a bad seed… too bad Hope had the misfortune of giving birth to such a worthless piece of crap.

Hope was worried about his inheriting her blindness…well he did for a while…but in spite of the loving home that she and Cliff provided… he still turned out to be a twisted, dark sociopath.

Has Adam become the best Villain that Y&R has ever had??? No doubt…but not worthy of anything beyond sicko games.

Any female there who has a brain in her head should run as fast as she can from this psycho.

I just wish Victor and Adam would bond. I know it’s unlikely but it’s getting tiring of their hatred for each other when they are so alike in the first place.
I thought what adam did to Ashley and Sharon was horrible but it’s time to move on. I blame the writers for that dumb gaslighting storyline. Victor v. Adam is getting too old. one ups the other and it repeats itself. The writers need to show Victor as adam’s father not his enemy. They need to have situation where Victor and Adam bond and work together. Maybe Adam needs a ghostly reminder from Hope. I think Adam wants to do good and have his father’s love and support like his siblings.

The Victor/Adam storyline, in my opionion, is one of the better ones. I love it, and especially the business aspects and challenges between them, Tucker, and Jack. Victor and Adam are more alike than the other siblings & this makes it interesting to see who will win out on their scheme(s).
I kind of feel the writers are leaning towards the day Victor, the actor, leave/retires…and might have Adam as the top executive at Newman (also the worst villein of the show).

Quote DEEDEEBAY: I cant figure it out what Victor is up to, I do know he is going to marry Sharon and that is also part of his plan which I cannot figure out for the life of me.

All I can say is Sharon really is NUTS if she marries Victor, what’s that going to prove? Oh, I get it, she wants his money.

lol! I was leaning towards stupid, but nuts works.

I love both Adam and Victor and wish in the New Year that they somehow (miracle) become friends.

Adam’s has been in on the plan from the beginning. Adam is Victor’s guy on the outside. Think about it, no one would suspect that because they think they absolutely hate each other.

And Adam probably gave Deacon some cash to use pieces of that video to keep Ronan going around chasing the wrong person and more to keep Nikki busy and from spoiling their plan.
