The week of December 24, 2018
Two majorly missed Newmans are back on the Genoa City scene. First and foremost, Eric Braeden, who’s only appeared in a handful of brief video chats over the last few weeks, returns in the flesh as family patriarch Victor on Monday, December 24.
The actor headed off on an extended vacation to his native Germany in September.
Also back in town on Monday, December 24 is Robert Adamson as Noah Newman. The character returns to visit his seriously injured grandmother Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott).
Adamson, who was previously under contract with the soap, but is now a recurring player, made his last appearance in October, when he attended Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon’s (Sharon Case) wedding that wasn’t.
