‘The Young And The Restless’ (Y&R) spoilers show that there’s no one Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) hates more than Adam Newman (Mark Grossman), and Adam loves sticking it to Billy every chance he gets. Today we had an interesting scene between the two where Billy was proding at Billy about Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle).
For a while, I have said that Jason Thompson is one of the better actors on the show and should be led to be a big part of the future. However, after watching more of him and Adam together, it reminds me of something I’ve seen before. Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman)!
‘The Young And The Restless’ Spoilers: Are Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) And Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) The Next Generation Victor / Jack?
We’ve toyed with this idea before, but it feels like a very real possibility. Braeden will be on his way out in a few years, and I’m sure Bergman will follow shortly after, leaving an enormous hole in the show that I think can be easily filled by Grossman and Thompson. Not only do they excel in their own storylines, but their bitter rivalry and constant bickering could continue to fuel the Newman v. Abbott story for many more decades.
Meanwhile, we can continue the side stories of characters like Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow), Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) and the rest, but I don’t think any of them have the ability to carry the show the way that Billy and Adam could. Their history alone is already enough fuel. If you threw some more logs on the fire, it could be a great win.
What do you think? Could Billy and Adam be the future of Y&R and do you think you would keep watching them after Braeden and Bergman are gone? Let us know in the comments below.
