On Friday's episode of "The Young and the Restless," Billy and Victor were trying to figure out who put toxins in the "Brash and Sassy" men's line face masks. Billy went straight to Gloria, who had tampered with face cream years ago. She insisted her innocence and slapped her former stepson in the face. When he left, she called Jack, who insisted he too was not at fault. Spoiler alerts from Soap Opera Spy list Victor, Cane, Juliet, and Gloria, but the one individual who has the means, motive, opportunity, and access was not mentioned. The one individual who hates Victoria Newman and her company more than anyone else and has the most to gain from the situation is Phyllis.

Victoria's health and her business are under attack

Victoria has had health issues for quite a while and earlier spoilers indicated she might be dealing with a brain tumor.

New head writer Mal Young flipped the script and now doctors say Vicky had prolonged exposure to toxins. She figured out that it came from testing her men's line face masks, and now her ex-husband and her father want to punish whoever is responsible. In one swipe, Victoria Newman's company "Brash and Sassy," as well as her health have been attacked.

On Friday, Victor and Billy agreed to work together to take Jack down but he may not be the culprit as he and Gloria have shared their innocence with each other. Cane has been barred from the premises and Juliet received a large settlement in the lawsuit. This leaves only one known possible suspect and that would be Phyllis. "The Young and the Restless" could always have the guilty party be someone that no one suspected, but for now only Ms. Summers/Abbott has the most to gain.

Phyllis is a woman scorned

Phyllis has been playing second fiddle to Victoria ever since she and Billy got back together. The former spouses have spent long hours working together at "Brash and Sassy" and also have done things as a family with their children. Phyllis loathes Billy's ex-spouse and has stated on more than one occasion that she wishes her company would disappear from the face of the earth.

She is so desperate to get her lover away from Vicky that Phyllis teamed up with Jack to make sure the company Billy works for goes down. Ms. Summers/Abbott freely hops on the elevator and rides down from Jabot to the office where her rival works. She comes and goes as often as she likes and no one has given it a second thought. It will be interesting to find out if she is the guilty party, or if there is another, so stay tuned weekday afternoons on CBS at 12:30 PM. The new "Young and the Restless" executive producer has promised some big changes, so anything is possible.
