The Young and the Restless (Y&R) Spoilers: Lily Gives Billy Love and Understanding – But Victoria Won’t Let Go
The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers document that in Genoa City, Wisconsin, Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) is attempting to lead a new life. That choice doesn’t include Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) as his central focus and she isn’t okay with it.
The Newman family is legendary for not allowing those who are, or have been connected to it from escaping a seeming eternal shadow. So, even though Billy wanted to get out of the family, he’s just been told that he’s still in. The Godfather movie series soundtrack could be cued if one likes right now.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Villy Is Never Over
Victoria has decided that she will always have control over what Billy does, or at least she hold sway until their children become adults. Heinle’s character has often cited him as being a good father and on that point Victoria is being honest.
As for her own connection with Billy, she’s hoping to revive it at some point. This was demonstrated through dreams Victoria had and her tell to Thompson’s character.
Billy was rudely told that his relationship with Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) isn’t likely to survive longterm because of his poor relationship history. That bite was more about Victoria’s desires than a logical analysis.
Billy Abbott’s Assessment Was Right
There are some who chided Billy for talking about his authentic self when he decided to end the most recent edition of Villy. Yes, that cliched phrase, authentic self, is pretentious. But the gist of what Billy told Victoria has proven to be right.
Victoria does want to assert her authority over Billy, as though he’s one of her children. To be fair, he’s often acted immaturely. But the relationship he’s developing with Lily feels much different than what he had, at multiple points in the past with Victoria.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Victoria Newman Won’t Take No For An Answer
If Victoria finds another man to love she might back off Billy. But even if that happens, her pattern of telling Thompson’s alter ego how he should live is highly likely to persist.
Lily recognizes that she is a threat to Victoria. The bond Khalil’s character is developing with Johnny Abbott (Holden and Ryan Hare) and Katie Abbott (Sienna Mercuri) is serving to heighten Victoria’s defensive posture.
Conflict lies ahead as Billy attempts to push back against Victoria’s insertion of herself in his personal life. Villy isn’t yesterday in Victoria’s mind and that’s a challenge Billy must confront and attempt to adjust or adapt to.
