Nikki was only trying to save Victoria, but she ended up killing JT Hellstrom when she hit him with a fireplace poker. The women debate what they should do now that JT is lying dead in Victoria’s room. Will they call the police and take the risk that Nikki – and the rest of them – could be arrested? Meanwhile, Nick has already figured out that Victor is trying to say that JT was responsible for his attempted murder.

Phyllis suggests they should get rid of the body

Previously on “The Young and the Restless,” Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) attacked JT (Thad Luckinbill) with a fireplace poker and JT fell unconscious on the floor.

On Monday’s episode, the girls look for something that they can use to tie JT before he wakes up. However, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) realizes he is no longer breathing and he has no pulse either. Nikki panics and they want to call 911. But then, they realize JT has gone cold already, according to

Nikki freaks out and is apologetic, but Victoria (Amelia Heinle) reveals the truth about JT pushing her father off the stairs and trying to finish Victor (Eric Braeden) for good by turning off his ventilator.

Victoria suggests calling the police, but Phyllis says Nikki could go to prison because JT had no weapon. And the rest of them can also be arrested for being accessories to his murder. They argue about how the police will see the incident, and Victoria feels responsible.

They need a plan.

JT is wanted for attempted murder

At the station, the results of the lab test revealed that the blood sample they found at the crime scene is JT’s.

Paul (Doug Davidson) remembers JT mentioned he was at the ranch, so he might have lied about the time. He needs to question him.

“The Young and the Restless” spoilers reveal that while the women are still thinking about the next step, Paul will come to Victoria’s place. He is looking for JT and Victoria reveals she found out he was working with Paul to investigate Victor and that they already broke up.

Paul is sorry but tells Victoria it’s a good decision. He leaves, but later he receives a call from Nick (Joshua Morrow) that Victor has identified JT as the one who attacked him. Now, Paul has enough reason to arrest JT for attempted murder.

The girls go back to discussing their course of action. Sharon (Sharon Case) still wants to tell Paul what happened, but Phyllis maintains there’s a risk they’d be put in jail. Phyllis then suggests they need to get rid of JT’s body. A preview clip for “The Young and the Restless” shows Victoria, Phyllis, Sharon and Nikki standing on what seems to be JT’s grave.

“The Young and the Restless” airs Mondays to Fridays at 12:30 p.m. on CBS.
