The testimony is over and “The Young and the Restless” spoilers promise a jury busy deciding Victor’s fate, while those involved are busy playing the blame game.
There’s a strong chance that Victor (Eric Braeden) will get away with everything he did because those around him failed over and over to make sure he pays. But, who’s fault will it be if her’s found not guilty?
Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) knows most of the blame will fall on her shoulders. The woman who wanted to get justice the most is the woman who could have ruined any chance taking Victor down. Not only did she conspire with Michael (Christian LeBlanc) to throw the case, but her emotional outburst on the stand also didn’t help.
The weight of the world sits on Phyllis’s shoulders and she knows she screwed up big time. She had the best of intentions to take Victor down, but her best may not have been enough. If Victor gets away scot-free, expect hell to pay for everybody–thanks to Phyllis.
Will Phyllis be able to lick her wounds, pull herself together, and get back on the right track? It doesn’t seem likely with her over-the-top emotional breakdown ruining all plans. Not even Jack (Peter Bergman) can soothe his wife’s fragile ego. Even if the town finds a way to forgive her, Phyllis may never forgive herself. The only prayer Big Red may have of salvation is the jury coming back with a guilty verdict.
