The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that J.T. (Thad Luckinbell) will finally return next week. The wait is almost over! Y&R fans will soon have a chance to see J.T. and hear what he’s been up to since he left Genoa City.
Reed (Tristan Lake Leabu) offered some updates when he first came back. J.T. was moving to Warsaw with Mackenzie (Clementine Ford) and the fam, so Reed thought that was the perfect time to bail. He headed to Genoa City to bond with Victoria (Amelia Heinle) again.
It should be interesting to see how J.T.’s move panned out. There must be a reason he apparently bails on his family and comes to town alone. It doesn’t sound like good news. The Young and the Restless spoilers say J.T. will indeed look glum when he sits down to chat with Victoria.
There’s been some shocking social media buzz about J.T.’s comeback, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet. Potential leaks suggested that the plan was for J.T. to have a violent side. However, the backlash was swift and fierce. Y&R fans definitely aren’t on board with J.T. as an abusive monster.
The Young and the Restless undoubtedly took the expected fan reaction into consideration, so it’s possible that plan was scrapped. Then again, it might be more tolerable if J.T. did it off screen and that led to the destruction of his marriage.
It’s still not ideal, but at least we wouldn’t have to watch him beat Victoria (Amelia Heinle) or another woman in GC. There’s no need to make viewers hate a character they’ve been looking forward to seeing again. It’s the holidays for crying out loud!
Of course, it’s also possible that all the buzz was blown out of proportion. Maybe J.T. simply has an anger management problem. If J.T. kept lashing out at Mackenzie, they might’ve decided a break was in order. Whatever the case, J.T. will guzzle some wine with Victoria as he opens up about his issues. She’ll have a few of her own to share during this depressing conversation.
Could Victoria and J.T. reunite while he’s in town? Will they bond over disastrous love lives and other major concerns? Regardless, it should be nice for Reed to reconnect with his dad. We’ll keep you posted as other Y&R details emerge. Stick with the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news.
