A gift of love.

In this week’s “The Young and the Restless” Throwback Thursday Soaps.com takes readers back to the 1980s when Nikki Newman planned to reunite Victor with his father, mother and brother…

These days many families are facing tough times in Genoa City. Years ago, Nikki wanted to help Victor deal with his past and planned to reunite his family in order for him to let go of the haunting memories. With the help of Paul Williams, Nikki was able to find Victor’s mother Cora, his brother Matt but uncovered that his father Albert Miller had died. Victor made some peace with the past and forgave his mother for abandoning him before she died. He also bonded with Matt and gave him a job.

It wasn’t until years later when Matt found out their father had faked his death and left their family after coming in to a lot of money. Victor had been facing a tough time with his son Nick, who’d turned him in to the Feds, and brought him along to a Toronto hospital where Albert was dying. Albert made it clear that he wanted nothing to do with Victor or his family. Regardless, Victor let it be known just how much Albert had destroyed him as a child. He also made it clear he’d become a success despite Albert’s absence, leaving Nick with a newfound respect for his father.
