The Young and the Restless spoilers for Wednesday, April 22, 2020, reveal exactly what happened to AJ Montalvo the night he was killed — or at least Victor’s version of what happened. It all makes sense, but Adam isn’t buying it.
The Young and the Restless Spoilers Highlights
Adam (Mark Grossman) can barely believe his ears. What is Victor (Eric Braeden) talking about? HE killed AJ. He was just a child. How could that be? Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) starts to tell Adam off but Victor stops her and asks to speak to his son alone.
That’s when he tells the whole tale of how a little boy killed a grown man. Adam insisted he couldn’t be a cold-blooded killer, but Victor told him he wasn’t. He was just a terrified child determined to protect his mother.
You see, Hope’s husband Cliff owed AJ money and AJ hired someone to run him off the road, but both drivers were drunk and killed. AJ went to jail for the scheme, but when he was released, he went straight to Hope’s because he blamed her — or at least her late husband — for what happened.
Adam: Protecting His Mother
Adam heard the pair fighting and attacked AJ, causing him to fall, hit his head, and die. Hope immediately called Victor and he hopped on the jet and flew to Kansas where he found a catatonic Adam had blocked the whole thing out.
